DROWNING BRir 6 i MEDALS Bones of Many Buffalo in Malheur Lake FIRE POSSIBLE ' CAUSE ' What actually killed a large number of buffalo, the bones of which" were found in the bottom of Malheur Lake, Is the problem that is being Investigated by Dr. Hlbbard. pioneer dentist of Har ney county, and a number of persons living In the vicinity of Burns. Dr. Hlbbard is a natural ist and Is well known throughout the central Oregon district. Were the animals the victims of disease, thirst, .swamp tire or did they crowd onto the Ice and fall through as has been tbe ease of cattle daring the spring break up? Dr. W. XI. Lytle. state vet erinarian, who recently returned i here from Burns, said the anl ' snals apparently met some unna tural death as no evidence was foand that they died from any disease. An examination of the boa as showed , no Indication of dlalmycosis or lumpy . Jaw. which has an affinity for boney . tissue . and leaves a permanent disease deformity mark. .Neither was there any evi dence to show that. these animals had reached the stage of old age decrepitude. The heads - of the animals apparently were nor mal at the time of their death, and their upper Jaws were part ly filled with teeth. Indicating that they were' in- the prime of life. The examination also dis proved that tbe buffalo were vic tina o anv-large carnlverous . an W m v. yy , 1 fel iri Matrimony na received knockout blow from Jack Dempsey, who has uken op reindcnce in Ken to comply with the law to seeking a Jivorre from hi scire! wife.

Glories of Blacksmith's Shop Are Gone; Mitchell Roneer Recalls History THE DALLES, Ore.. (AP) The smithy's shop of olden days, where horseshoeing was the chief business, has become a thing just to be remembered and talked about. This is the view of D. V. Monroe, pioneer black smith of Mitchell, here to visit friends and to aid In promotion of a more direct road from the hinterland to the western part of Oregon. Monroe, native of Appanoose county, Iowa, who when less than two months old,- was taken by his parents to the great Ore gon country, is now 65 years old. His father, J Thomas Jefferson BAMBERGER BABY phes mem 01 Time Allays all Doubt of Mixed Babies' .True Identities, Word CHICAGO. (AP) Blood will tell, as two families have found eight months after the Watklns Bamberger baby mix-up was a na tional sensation. And the Solomon decision of Dr. Arnold Kegel, young Chicago health commissioner, ranks as somewhat of a 20th century dupli cation of the sagacity of the an cient kind of the Jews. Both families, the William Wat- kinses and the Charles Bamber ger, are satisfied the children are theirs, said Dr. Kegel. The Bam berger boy has taken on the facial and statute aspects or two otner children, three and five years old, and of the parents. The Watkins es no longer live in Chicago. The Watklns-Bamberger "mix- us' began last June wnen dots were born In the same hospital en the same night to Mrs. Wat kins and Mrs. Bamberger.' When the Watkinses went home from the hospital, two weeks lat er, they found an adhesive on their baby's back, bearing the name Bamberger," and the Bam berger child was marked "Wat- kins.- The Watklns" complaint tossed the baby mix-up before the pub lic In page-one headlines.. Joseph Sabath of divorce fame was call ed upon to settle the question. Dr. Kegel finally took a hand and In troduced! seven other physicians. Through blood tests and physi cal measurements, the health com missioner adjudged which was a Bamberger and which a Watklns. There was some grumbling, but the adjustment stood. "No, we're tired of the affair and want to be left alone," was Bamberger's ' remark when asked about his eight-months old son. But he smilingly added: "He's a Bamberger." . ' IS STUDIED imal, although severat large bear heads were ; found in the same part of the lake bed. Death of the animals might have resulted from swamp-res-Xr. Lytle said. - "Various ! species of animals frequently--have been driven out or tneir lairs by swamp fires.' said Dr. Lvtle. "snd -hav mlnri ed harmlessly together in their , Captain Louie of the Piute tribe, now quartered near Burns, when interviewed by Dr. Lytle. said his grandfather had many buffalo in Harney county. bui una was ue -nrst time that their bones ; had been recovered from the lake bed. Captain Louie was said to .be more than It) 0 years of age, and Is now blind. He originally was a scout during the Modoc Indian wars. He mar. rled a Piute wife and has since been given the title and honor of cemg cauea tne Piute chief. Chief Louie, once a famous horseman, recentlv. r.rmrt.A the theft detection officers at Burns mat one of his animals had been itolen. Louie recalled the markings fairly well. Dr. Ly tle said, and upon being ques tioned said the horse disappeared 12 years ago. The anlmcl was men seven yean old. - Louie Is an optimist. Dr. Lytle declared, and Is still hoping that ae wui una ma norse. , Monroe, set Linn county as his goal. In 1872 he went to the rich . grazing country' where be and the boy learned the work of cow 'punching on the large Gill- man, French and Company ranch. Monroe then established a blacksmith shop at Mitchell on the route of the old Dalles Mili tary highway over which freight wagons and stage coaches moved between The Dalles and Canyon City, center of the early days of gold mining. "In those days." Monroe said, we had all we could do to keep the teams of the freighters and stage coach people ' properly shod." Today his blacksmith shop is mainly a garage, i "We do a fair business, he continued. fitting up shoes for the pack outfits of the sheep ranches. These are carried along and put on the horses at .the camps." Because of his unusual mem ory for dates and his person ac quaintance with pioneer -inci dents, Monroe has become the historian of the Wheeler country. He recalled that Mitchell was es tablished as a postoffice In 1872 or 1874. It was named, for Unit ed States Senator Mitchell. Wheeler county got Its name from Henry Wheeler, pioneer stage coach driver, be said, -who was attacked by Indians one day near the present town of Mitch ell. The stage carried a large shipment of gold and 110,000 in greenbacks which were being shipped from Canyon City to The Dalles., The Indians fired on Wheeler and - his express guard, a man named Payne. A bullet struck Wheeler In the cheek, passing through his face and carrying away part of his Jawbone. The two men, however, managed to cut loose two of their horses and escaped. Wheeler was brought to The Dalles where he was giv en surgical aid. The Indians took the gold but left the green backs, not knowing their value.

Whew! If one could believe that there'd be no use of anyone else trying, and this coun try'd soon be like a lot of others we read about. in our little sojourn of 40-orld years (not too heavy on the "odd," folks) there hasn't yet been a line of super humans developed, even th ovarii one is asked to believe there has been, that is if one is expected to believe some of the ads a few of the chain stores scribble for the bene fit of those not so gifted (or should I say conceited) as to believe they're super-human. Why folks, if we made such a statement as that you'd know good'n well we didn't believe it when we me it. That's all hooey (we mean one firm havin' super-human ability). Anyway we'd rather be like the folks of our own community and have them feel that our stores were good stores to buy their food from, than to be known all over the whole country as bein' super-human or something (accent on the something:). I. rather suspect, though, that the chains making such statements are gifted with a larg er portion of ego than is necessary (or maybe it's gab they've got a lot of). One of the main reasons we don't sell everything cheaper is because we don't sell all the cheap stuff offered for sale or should we say offered as bait. Without doubt here's the best advertising values ever offered by a manufacturer through out stores,- Of course we know there not offering this ust to appear philanthropic.
