ed a more optimistic view of the vi

What Is Going On South of Pendlc
Crook County Journal: W. D. Bar
nett was in from Haystack Tuesday,
and informed the Journal man that
threshing would begin in his neigh
borhood this week. Tlie grain is not
as heavy as usual in that section of
The rain last week was a much
needed visitant and came at an op
portune time, for there had been
veryllttle grain cut so far in the dis
trict covered by it, and the hay crop
was so nearly up that only a small
amount was damaged to amount to
Ed Parker was down frcm the
ranch on Crooked River Monday to
get some repairs for his mowing ma
chine. He reports having just begun
cutting the second crop of alfalfa,
which was slightly demoralized by
the recent rain, but not enough to
damage the crop.
Dick Breese was down from his
farm at the head of Gravy Gulch on
Poverty flat last week, and reports
that he has his hay and grain all in
One would naturally infer from the
name of the locality where he lives
that it was not a very desirable placer
but Dick has some of the finest hogs
and cattle in tho country, not to say
anything of his fine farm.
The tract of land known as Agency
Plains, to which land there was a
rush of settlers last winter and this
spring, is now completely covered
with little cabins of the homestead
ers and fencing and improving are
going on at a great rate. This land
is pronounced excellent wheat soil
and will produce as much as the land
in Sherman county.
Rev. B. F. Harper returned last
week from an extended trip in the
Sisters country. Ho reports crops as
being good in that section, and at
Cllne Falls he saw as fine wheat as
ever grew in the Walla Walla val
ley, thus showing that the desert,
under irrigation, will bo a wheat pro
ducer second to nothing In tho North
west. While at Sisters he establish
ed a Sunday school that bids fair to
be permanent and prosperous.
Grant County News: The fire
boys are putting up a new house for
their old apparatus.
People coming In from the hills
report that huckleberries are getting
ripe and that there will be an abun
dance of them.

R, C. Boggs, who lives three miles
east of Monument, last week killed
one of the largest rattlesnakes on his
ranch ever killed In tho county. The
reptile .measured four feet one and
one-half Inches long and waB nine
Inches In circumference. There are
13 rattles and a button.
The wheat crop Is not--turning out
near as well as waB expected. 'rne
grain looked well, with plenty of
straw, but tho average 'yield In this
soctlon Js only about 32 bushels per
acre, ft Is a good thing that the
farmers of tho valley have gone into
diversified farming and are not now
dopendlng altogether upon wheat.

It was decided to refer tho propd-

matter to their unions, but as yet no
reports have been receivde by the

Until the reports from the separate
unions come in no further action will
be taken by the Centraf Union, and It
looks at present as though the day
would lie allowed to pass without

There was no meeting of tho Central
Union last evening, owing to tho fail
