Baker City Lad Attacked by Enraged
Mountain Lion
Iiaker City. Ore., Nov. 2S. Two
boys, the sons of Charles Newton, of
this city, had a thrilling experience
wtlh a mountain Hon near this city,
Saturday. They were out hunting
rabbits when they came up with the
lion. They weie on horseback and
armed with a shotgun. The oldest
boy, a lad of 1C years, fired at the
animal striking It with a full charge
of shot in the head. The Hon became
enraged and attacked tho boys on the
horse. It caught tho oldest boy by
the leg and dragged him from the
horse. A desperate encounter ensued
between the boy and lion. The boy
clubbed his gun and beat the lion
over the Iiead until he killed It. The
gun stock was demolished, but victory
was with the plucky lad.
The two boys brought the dead Hon
to town. There was another Hon near
by, presumably tho mate of tho one
killed, although ho did not offer to
join in the fray. The gun was use
less and the boys did not try to cap

J. 1 McManus, of the Adams Ad
vance, as ho pointed his linger fioiu
this eminence In a direction out over
the vast region in the vicinity of
Adams .
The Location.
Adams is situated on the O. It. &
N. railioad, about 13 miles fiom Pen
dleton, with Athena six miles beyond.
Kvery Inch of the soil in every direc
tion from Adams Is a grain producer.
The town, although comparatively
small In population, has three largo
warehouses where hundreds of thous
ands ol bushels of grain are stored,
and from which aro shipped annually.
It has a good newspaper, a number of
enterprising business houses, has
good schools and churches, fraternal
organizations .is Incorporated and Is
in splendid llnancial condition
Early Wlieatraising.
Wade Holman and John Adams
were the first settlers. The town Is
principally located' on the tract home
steaded by Holman, but the town was
named for Adams. Holman, like
many of tho other early pioneers was
a whcatralser and Adams a sheep-
raiser. He was practically the pioneer
of the place. The other old-timers
began to stir the soil and experiment
with wheat. Adams made all kinds
of sport or them. He told them that
they were wasting their time, as the
soil would not produce anything but
He even drove about among them
and goodnaturedly advised them to
quit wasting their time. He said ho
did not like to see such good men and
hard workers throwing away precious
moments. He advised them that if
they were bound to work to go to a
place where the soil would produce
something and reward them for their
labors. Hut these old pioneers showed
their "confidence in Umatilla soil by
continuing their efforts. Theie were
soure failures in a measure nt first
it is true; the time for planting, the
summer fallow system all had to be
learned ;the primeval manner of sav
ing the grain by tramping It out with
tho feet, the long haul to Umatilla
landing for market, a hundred and
one things had to be met by the
pioneer wheatraiser. Hut patience
and industry won. The wheat grew.
It ptuduced 30 or more bushels to the
acre. The fame of the country sptead.
Other settlers came. The small
patches" grew into large farms.
More land was taken up and fenced.
In a tew years the doubting Adams
found his range growing smaller, His
sheep had to give way to the broad
ening wheat fields. Tho pioneer sheep
raiser now had the laugh against him,
and in his old days told and enjoyed
tho joke as well as did his old-tlmo
An Old-Timer.
A. McKenzIo is one of the old
timers. Ho came to the community
in 1873, lives two and one-half miles
northwest of town and has S00 acres
in wheat. Ho has raised as many
as 47 Yz bushels of wheat to the acre
and as high as 75 bushels of barley
to the acre. Ho owned tho first
threshing outfit In the country aud
ran It within half a mile of where
Adams now stands. It was a crude
affair, but was considered a great in
stitution in those days. Help was
so scarce that he had to go to Walla
Walla to get help. Tho wheat then
was principally hauled to Umatilla
