Mn. Editor: The caption of tbls article Is
tlio most logical cuocluslon that can be de
duced from the uniform rosultof the notori

When to Cut and Cure Hay.
Figuring on a Swarm of Loetutsv
For a month past we have seen the follow
ing big grasshopper story going the ronads
of tho press unquestioned, and now we pro
pose to give It a test of ordinary .figuring:
"T. e oople. of Oregon, Mlsonri, were
lately astonished bv an tmmenae flight of lo
custs over that region. The mvuriii was from
thirty to seventy die mitxH wide and a bulf
a mile deep and pastwd a', tbn rate nf fifteen
miles an hour for over pixtv hours."
Reducing the above by sooimon arithme
tic, the swarm of hoppers was an average ol
50 miles wide and 9V0 miles long, and would1
reach from the Missouri rite to the Atlantic
ocean, or very nearly so. The swarm was
half a mile, or 2,fl0 feet deep, in the air. This
would cover 45,000 square miles, aud as there
are 15,000,000 square miles in both the conti
nents of the Western hemisphere (North and
South America), the wonderful flock of Kan
sas grasshoppers would furnish a eloud eight
feet tbiclc' to cover with gloom and.de vote to
direct devastation the whole area or the said
Western Hemisphere. Any body with com
mon arithmetic at command1 can see that
these figures are correct; the next thing is to
discover who invented the wonderful lie,
and spare a little ridicule for the newspaper
men who have kept It in circulation.

As for Eastern Oregon, I stand by her firmer

country. "Scahby sheep and! sta'v. t in,"
ought to be California's motto. I tuiuk 1

at North Bend; one by Johnson it Co., capa

Luse himself at Empire, vessels each of 400

are barkentlnes and the two last schooners.

When Roed saw he was discovered ho threat

methods are eccentric, aud many are not

the better. The music at tho meetings is
very fine. Mouday ho was soeu ridimr up
