STOCKMEN TO MEET
BUSINESS MEETING OF
Will Discuss the Question of Trans
portationStock at the '05 Fair.
Prominent livestock men from all
over the state will meet In Portland
next week. President Richard Scott
of Mllwankte. has called a business
meeting of the Oregon" livestock As
sociation for November 20. This will
enable the members to take advant
age of the low railroad rates that will
apply that week, and also be enter
tained with other visitors by the
merchants' entertainment committee.
Object of Meeting.
The purpose of this meeting is to
arrange a livestock premium list for
industrial fairs, take steps to begin
arranging details for exhibiting at the
Lewis and Clark fair, see what can be
done toward getting a special railroad
rate for pure-bred stock used for
breeding purposes in less than car
load lots, and clear the way for th
annual meeting to be held in Janu
ary. Will Discuss Rates.
Better railroad rates is one of the
present urgent needs. The same rates
prevail that have been In vogue for
years, when the conditions were such
as not to warrant the rates needed
today. It Is believed If the railroads
are approached In the right manner
there will be no difficulty In getting
the same rates as prevail In breeding
centers In other states. At the pres
ent time many small stockmen can
not afford to Improve their herds be
cause the freight rates make the price
of fancy bulls too high, says the Tel
Liberality of Railroads.
The expense of shipping a bull or
several breeding cattle in less than
carload lots from one section of the
state to another Is often a third of
the purchase price. In short, the
present rates are a decided check to
Oregon becoming the breeding state
for fancy stock in all lines that she
deserves to become by reason of cli
matic and other favorable conditions.
In helping along the Industrial lines
and especially the industrial fairs,
the railroads have been extremely
liberal in giving rates, and it is be
lieved they will do the same for the
benefit of stockmen when the ques
tion Is presented to them in Its prop
Oregon Equal to Europe.
Another thing that will be discuss
ed at the business meeting and taken
up later at the annual meeting is the
advisability of shipping a carload of
Oregon fancy stock to the important
livestock shows In the East to Chi-
cage, for instance, next year, and to
St Louis later. At the present time
In Oregon are raised as fine-urea
sheep as are raised in England. There
is no reason why weeaers snoutu im
port sheep from England when this
fact becomes generally known.
To Advertise Stock.
A carload of these sheep sent to
any of the industrial fairs of the
Middle West would advertise the fact
in such a way as to result in orders

Will Arrange Premium List
The preparing of a premium list
is an important question. Hereto
fore the state fair board has made
out the lists without having a chance
to consult the livestock men. While
the last list at the fair was as per
fect as It was possible to arrange
it without the aid of the livestock
men. there wero a few points that
could be Improved upon, and It Is for
this purpose that the livestock men

The average first cost of bringing

of operation and repairs throughout
the state is 90 cents per acre. When

many districts, Oregon offers a much

An Ancient Record.
Deputy Recorder James F. Chord
yesterday while looking through some
old records of the county, discovered
the first book of records and convey
ances ever used In Baker county. It
was while Auburn was a town and
before the birth of Baker City. The
first entry was in June, 1862. The
book contains all the placer locations
made in the camp that year and also
the record of the bills of sale and con
veyances. All the records were signed
by E. C. Brainard, who was the re
corder, and who was recently sent to
the asylum for the Insane from Union
A Startling Surprise.
Very few could believe In looking
at A. T. Hoadley, a healthy, robust
blacksmith, of Tilden, Ind., that for
ten years he suffered such tortures
from rheumatism as few could en

change followed his taking Electric

A Systematic Survey of Southern
Waterpowers Greatly Stimulates
For a number of years the United
States geological survey has been
keeping records of the flow of the
streams on the Southern Atlantic
slope. Only a few years ngo capital
ists In the Northen states were of the
opinion that the Southern streams
were of but little value for water
power development, and It was Impos
sible to induce northern capital to
come into the southern states for
manufacturing purposes. Largely
owing to the greater information now
available in regard to the flow of these
southern streams, mills run by water
power are now being built in ail of
the southern states along the Atlantic
coast south of the Potomac This
means a great industrial development
in the South and goes far to account
lor the increased prosperity of the

J. J. Stubbleficld, of this city, de

in Ruby gulch and a force of men will
be put to work to uncover the ledge
and prepare for extensive Improve

Not long ago a coroner's jury in

"The best cure for lying," announc

The state assembly of mothers
gasped yesterday at this statement,
made in the hall of the board of edu
cation. Were the Insincerities of the
universal baby traceable to lobster
salad and mince pie?
But when Dr. Grossman, who is
principal of the Grossman School for
Atypical Children, further declared
that in certain cases glasses are a
cure for bad temper, and that eye de
fects of various kinds and nasal trou
bles are the real cause of much men

the sympathy of the entire audience.
