Young Man Make This Long Journey
on a Wheel In Pendleton Last
Night Interesting Experiences.
A young man aged 30 years arrived
in Pendleton last night on a bicycle,
claiming that he had ridden all the
way from Portland, Maine, having
lert that place July 20. The purpose
of his trip was to earn a wacer of
45000 on making the trip between
the two Portlands, the Maine and
Oregon Portlands, within a given
time and at a certain outlay of money,
he claims that he Is on time, having
plenty of time yet to spare and ex
pects to be in Portland within two
At Portland he will appear at the
telegraph office, get Identified and
wire a New York paper of the buc
cess of his trip. He has made notes
on the Journey and an aeount of his
trip will apear in a leading New
York paper. Wilson Is a bright ath
letic young fellow and claims to have
had some wonderful experiences by
wheel. He has ridden beneath the
shadows of the Chinese wall and
claims to have traveled by wheel in
nearly every land under the sun.
He claims the distinction of having
been sent out at a great expense to
search for the missing bicyclist Lents
and that after a long journey by
wheel, found the remains of the dead
man and was Instrumental in com
pelllng the payment by the foreign
government an Indemnity of more
than $18,000. While Wilson might be
taken for a fakir at first irlance. vet
Ian Investigation disclosed that he has
I credentials and that his trip is an
juortant one. He "refuses to give the
detail irauwtuBn iur which
he is maK.'S the tr,P an(J Poetically
ni-immripdirpK that his. name is not
Wilson, but behind it all he possesses
the equipment that snows mat ne has
His equipment consists of a late
modeled Rambler bicycle,, with many
additional Improvements, a set of bi
cycle repair tools, oil and chain lubri
cators, a canteen for carrying water,
a light arm; blanket, a late improved
Smith & Wesson revolver and small
cans containing sugar and coffee.
He has made the trip without stop
ping over more than 24 hours at any
one given point. He spent 24 hours
in Chicago, elx hours In Omaha and
Cheyenne each, three hours in Lara
mie and four hours in Pendleton.
Outside of the heavy rains in the east
and the privations of the desert he
has had rather an uneventful trip.
He did camp one night with two
hobos who attempted to rob him, but
he had his revolver close at hand,
and gave them a hearty surprise with
It. They did not know that he was
armed. He had camped near a farm
house and the two hobos came up late
at night and claimed to be hungry
and asked If they could Join him for
the night. He heartily consented,
shared his provisions with them and
they all soon turned in for a night's
sleep. Wilson was suspicious of their
conduct and quietly took his revolver
from the holster and placed it close
at hand and slept with one eye open.
Late at night when the hobos thought
he was asleep they rose according to
apparent pre-arrangement and made
a rush upon him. He flashed the re-j
volyer In their faces and they took to
their heels and he never heard from
them again. He merely fired a couple
of shots to see "them Increase their
The trip across the desert was the
most trying. He traveled four days
at one time leading his wheel most
of the time in the deep alkali sands
and only a quart of water to drink
during the time. He carries a canteen
holding this amount and has It wrap
ped in a number of layers of cloth in
order to keep it cool. On the long
run mentioned he soon exhausted his
meagre supply of water and his thirst
became so great that he bled from the
lips and tongue which became so
parched in the alkali dusMadened
When naked what he did for food
on this long run and in the sparsely
settled sections, he pointed to his re

Leasing the Lands is the Remedy Of

D. R. Castldy, a prominent sheep
man, oi Kawiins, Wyo., has been en
gaged in the sheep business for 30
year, and thinks that tho only solu
tion of the dispute between the cattle
and sheepmen will be tbe leasing of

said, "and so the sheepman has as

years, but none have ever been con
"If the government should decide to
lease the public lands at a reasonable
figure for pasturage, a stop would
be put to all this wholesale slaughter
of sheep by masked men. There may
be objection to the leasing of the
ranges on the ground that the big
stockmen might obtain more than
their share, but the capitalist has the
advantage in all other lines of indus
try, and why not in the stock busi
"The leasing of railroad lands in
Wyoming and Colorado has done
much to quiet disputes and preserve
order among the stockmen. The Un
ion Pacific owns the odd sections on
each side of its track, but the even
sections are still government land.
The party leasing the odd section
from the railroad has a right to run
on the government sections, because
he can prevent other cattle or sheep
men from driving their herds across
the lands he has leased. A big law
suit was fought over this proposi
tion recently in Wyoming and the
lessee of the railroad lands won, after
the rounds of the courts, up to the
highest, had been taken."
Mr. Castldy has 7000 head of stock
ranging in the Blue mountains near
Baker City, and has no trouble with
the cattlemen there. "I tell my herd
ers to respect the rights of cattlemen
and miners," he said, "and so, when
these people desire to reserve .grass
for their own use, we keep our sheep
away. I have had very little trouble
since I have been Jn the sheep busi

of others as well as my own on the
He .expects to winter his sheep near
Baker City, where he nas purchased
a large amount of hay. He intended
to ship the stock east this fall, but
finds that the ranges of Wyoming
are already overcrowded, and that

state this winter to make room for
last spring's increase.
A writer In The Country Gentleman
fives a method for curing bacon ai
follow: First trim all surplus fat from
the hams, removing the Joint; shape at
usual. Hub the salt In tboronghly on
the skin side, using a hog ear to do It;
then draw up the skin over the hock,
putting in a pinch of pulverized salt
peter, then filling up closely packed
with salt Place the hams on a table
covered with salt half an Inch deep,
fitting them in to occupy ns little space
as possible, but not touching. Now you
are ready for the dressing. Thorough'
ly mix the following articles (quantity
given for 100 pounds of bams): Ten
pound b salt, two pounds good brown
sugar, half pound ground blnck pepper,
half pound saltpeter, with which thor
oughly rub the flesh Bide, after which
put on nil the mixture that will lie on.
Bylibsorptlon the mixture will be eat
en np in from two to three weeks.
Then slightly sprinkle with salt In
six weeks the meat will be ready, to
hang up for smoking. Hang with wire
and be sure to hang with the hock
down. Dsc nothing but corncobs or
hickory wood for smoking. Spareribs,
breakfast bacon and small shoulders
for family use should be treated the
same as hnniB.

water too hot This can be determined
by the use of a thermometer. Before
cutting up allow the hog to cool some
what, but be sure ana remove the fat
from tho entrails while warm, as It can
be done much easier and .with less
waste than when cool. Place the meat

one of the most spirited the state has

Nearly every one has n different way
of caring for and feeding bogs. I have
tried several different ways myself,
says Ed Edmonson in Farm and Ranch
of Dallas, Tex. I suppose that the
pigs are good Btock and have been well
cared for. I mean spring pigs of about
the last of May, at the age of from six
to nine weeks, and, as corn is out of
their reach, I turn them ;ut in the
field and let them get the young weeds,
nnd when the corn is in good roasting
cars I begin to pull and feed them.
Until that time I feed them a good ra
tion of corn and shorts. I continue to
pull' the corn until the pigs get large
enough to break it down, and if I don't
wunt them to eat all they will I take
them out Right here Is about the
hardest time of the year. On account
of hot dry weather there is nothing
green, so we have to feed too much
corn. I don't feed them all they will
eat and I turn them on the wheat ns
early in the fall as I can get it large
enough to graze on. The best combina
tion I have ever found is corn and
The Good Brood Sow.
A good brood sow should have a
short head, wide between the eyes,
good ears, not too large, as large ears
indicate coarseness nnd sluggishness.
The shoulders should be broad and as
wide on the upper line ns they are on
the lower line. The chest should be
good aud wide, and her Jowls should be
on a level witn lier lower lines. J. no
hips should be broad aud square, a lit
tle broader than her shoulder is a
good quality. The back should be good
and strong and slightly arched. The
sow should stand well on her toes and
be extremely lengthy between the
shoulders and hams with well sprung
ribs. She should be the progeny of a
mother who is a good guelder. A well
matured bow should produce from sev
en to ten pigs to a litter and at least
two Utters n year.
