COPELAND WANT MUCH LAND. Figuring on Buying Thirteen Sec tions in Washtucna Country for Permanent Range. If Hon. Levi Ankcny, tho banker, politician and candidate for United fatates senator from Walla Walla county, who was In town several days this week, closes a deal ho Is working on In the Washtucna coun try, he will be ono of tho largest iana owners in tho country. Esnoc lally will he own the largest acreage In one tract of any man in the North? west. Mr. Ankeny and Grant Copeland, representative from Walla Walla county, are both Interested in tho same deal. They are in tho Wash tucna country a few days ago and were negotiating for 13 sections of grazing land in one body. Mr. Ank eny and Mr. Copeland aro partners in tho stoc kbusiness and aro nimliur to acquire range enough to put their In dustry on a permanent basis. Last fall the Walla Walla canital- ists and politicians bought their first land In Cow creek country, 15 miles from Washtucna. Since that time they have added to their holdings until today they own in a body near ly 12,000 acres and the deal now on. if it goes through, will give them the huge total of 31 sections, or almost 21,000 acres. This land is costing them a neat sum of money. From $2 to $3 an acre was paid for what has been purchased and the present deal will be In the same neighbor hood. This will be one of the finest hold ings of land for an ideal stock ranch in the state of Washington. For 10 miles Cow creek runs through It, which gives It plenty ot water. Southeastern Adams In a fine, roll ing buuchgras8 country, splendidly adapted for cattle. Mr. Ankeny says It Is one of the ideal stock districts of America. Last winter 80 per cent of winter calves on Cow creek were saved, an average 5 per cent higher than In the most favored districts of the Northwest. The Montana av erage is only about 30 per cent. The big ranch will contain much line ag ricultural land, and a big area where alfalfa can be grown. In fact, Mr. Ankeny says, it is the owners' inten tion to put up about 1000 tons annu ally when everything Is In running order. There are already 550 head of cat tie on the 18 sections. With the buy contemplated 700 head more will go. Mr. Ankeny says the ranch will range 3000 easily, and that the Industry which he thinks has a great future in Washington, will be put on a last ing basis here. Severfal hundred tons of alfalfa were grown this year. Ne smlth Ankeny, son of Levi Ankeny, is foreman. The purchase for cold cash of such large tracts Ib necessitated by thei disappearance of government range in Washington. Stockmen say this course of Ankeny and Copeland Is very significant, as Indicating that the man who proposes following the cattle industry much longer must for tify himself by large purchases of cheap range. Several extensive com panies In Washington aro doing thiSj and land values are rising In propor tion to the demand. The Ankeny-Copeland farm rivals some of the wonderful ranches of Harney, Malheur, Lake and other Southern Oregon counties. A MUCH MARRIED MAN RESIDENT OF PENDLETON HAD MANY EXPERIENCES.

Well Known Citizen Doesn't Know and Doesnf Care, The friends of a well-known rail road man who visits Pendleton, are having the laugh at his expense. This man has a beautiful home where, will not be divulged and in his yard grows a splendid shade tree. Or the tree did grow, but recently tho leaves withered from an unknown cause and he Is mourning Its death. The cause of the tree's death Is a puzzle, for it is In a favorable local ity with all the nourishing surround ings that apparently could be wished for a healthy growth, so the owner bethought himself that he would di agnose the case and try to learn what was tho cause of the sudden wither ing of his tree. He carefully examin ed the body and roots, digging Into the ground and could not find any apparent cause. However, he was determined and would not give up, so he got a ladder and climbed to the top to look at the buds. He is a man who will weigh about 220 pounds and the slender limbs of the tree objected tn tho strain of lite weight and Just as ho was explain ing to his wife how some small InBect had bored holes Into the twigs near the top and no doubt had Inserted poison therein which had caused the tree's death, tho limb on which be stppd broke and let him fall to the ground. fLe only uttered one word as be went down, and that can better be imagined than described,' He now says that tho tree died from natural causes and he is glad It is dead. Out when the fcoya get to Joshing blm about it he alwayB Baya: "Come on, have something, it is on me." Thought He Was a Yankee. Judgo Ellis tells an amusing story about a gentleman who was sum moned to appear on the Jury In the last term of the district court. Ho appeared tho first day of the court and asked the" Judgo to let him off, giving as an excuse that ho could not hear well and understood English with difficulty. Ho talked very brok enly and tho Judgo asked him what nationality he was. Tho fellow laughed and said: "My mother was born In Finland, my father In ' Ger many, and I In Norway, so 1 think I am a Yankee." Happy Time .n Old Town. "We felt very happy," writes R. N.
