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?
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
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
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.

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
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."
