Taking Up Homesteads.
It is said that the land below the
Hudson Bay country is so poor that
a jack rabbit has never been seen on
it. Whether this is true or not, there
is quite a stir in this vicinity over it,
and quite a number express their
intention of taking up homesteads,
since the irrigation move has been
made. If water can be gotten on that
section in quantities, it will prove, no
doubt, to be as rich in soil as any part
of Umatilla or Walla Walla counties,
and instead of being a sandy, barren
desert with not enough vegetation to
support a rabbit, will be the garden
spot of the above mentioned counties
and support thousands of human be
J. D. Phelps, who has been doing a
general merchandise business in Mil
ton for the last 18 or 20 years, and has
been selling goods at cost and auc
tion for the last three months, saying
that he intended to quit business on
account of his health, has disappear
ed and his whereabouts, up to this
time, are unknown. About two weeks
ago he went to Pomeroy, Wash., on
business, but just what that business
was no one knows for certain. There
are several rumors afloat. One is that
he was in straitened circumstances
and couldn't face his creditors; an
other is that he has eloped with
woman, as a certain woman with
whom he has been on certain terms
packed her goods and left for parts
unknown about the same time that he
did. It is to be hoped that he will
return and give a clear record of his
disappearance, but it is doubtful, as
it is known that he left a wifo about
25 years ago in the East and came
West. He leaves a wife and one
daughter, who feel the sting of dis
grace that has been brought on them
by one who should be their protea
