MORROW COUNTY SHEEP.
Stock Inspector Kirk Reports Ne

Stock Inspector C. S. Kirk returned
last Friday from a 10-days' trip
through Sand Hollow ,the lower sand
country and Rhea Creek, where he
has been Inspecting sheep, says the

There has been scarcely any feeding
in the sand country during the win
ter, and naturally sheep aro rather
thin In flesh, but Mr. Kirk says, there
has been no loss except some old
sheep have succumbed as a conse
quence of old age rather than from
lack of forage.
He reports some scab among the
flocks in the north end of tho county,
but that sheep thus affected have
been ordered to bo dipped as soon as
the lambing and shearing season is
over. Shearing has been in progress
in that section the past two weeks,
and lambing Is about a thing of the
past for the season.
The flocks of Morrow county gen

considering the long forage feeding
SHOT IN COLD BLOOD
JAMES JONES, SHEEPMAN,
MURDERED BY JOHN CLICK.
Dispute Over Sheep Range Was the
Cause Jonet Had Threatened
Ollck, and Wat Under Bonds.
Fossil, Or., April 11. James Jones,
a sheepman, was murdered at 3:30 p.
ra, Wednesday on the south fork of
the John Day River, IB miles above
Spray, and 50 miles aoutheaat of Fos
sil. John Click, who admits that h
did the shooting, rode Into Mitchell,
35 miles from here, and gave himself
Tho trouble between the two men
arose over the use of a sheep rango.
Last fall Jones pulled a gun on Qllck.
The latter had him arrestd In Grant
county, and he was bound over to the
statu circuit court under $250 bonds.
This case was still pending at the
time of the shooting.
Tho murder appears to have been
premeditated. Jones was unarmed,
and Qllck shot him through tho hand
and body with a rifle or shotgun.
Jones died Instantly. His body was
brought into Mitchell Wednesday and
there the murderer will bo held until
tho arrival of tho sheriff, who has
gone from Fossil to tako him In cus

he refuses to discuss his motives.

NEW SCIENTIFIC PROCESS.
A Preparation Discovered That Will
Destroy the Dandruff Germ.
For some time It has been known
that dandruff is caused by a germ
that digs up the scalps into littlo
white flakes and by sapping the vi
tality of the hair at the root, causes
falling hair, and, of course, finally
baldness. For years there have beon
all kinds of hair stimulants and scalp
tonics on the market, but there has
been no permanent cure for dandruff
until the discovery of n preparation
called Ncwbro's Herplclde, which de
stroys the dandruff germ. Destroy
the cause the effect will cease to ex
ist. Kill the dandruff germ and you'll
have no dam'ruff germ and you'll
have no dandruff, no Itching scalp, no
falling hair. Sold by leading drug
gists. Send 10c in stamps for sam

We wish to call the attention of our friends who contemplate
purchasing a Slde-HIll Combined Harvester the coming season, that
we are still in the lead in the way of improvements, in harvesting
machinery, and which our farmer friends have rightfully named tho
"KINO OF THE FIELD." After watching Its work In the field the
past sixteen years, and for the season of 1903 It will be still better,
as we have made a number of valuable Improvements.
The MACHINE is the stronost and most durable made.
IMPROVED DRIVE WHEEL3 5 feet 4 inches high, 22 Inch tire.
RUNAWAYS are a rare thing with us. There is a brake oa
main drive wheel, which is controlled by the driver.
HEADER is driven Independently from tho grain wheel of sep
arator, and Is arranged with a clutch for throwing In and out of gear
when turning corners,
THE SEPARATOR Wo wish to call your attention particularly
to the separating qualities of our machine. We claim that no other
combined harvester on the market can in any. way compare with it
forspeed aud thoroughness of work, In all kinds and conditions of
grain, and will require less team to operato it.
AUTOMATIC GOVERNOR Our patent wind governor on the
fans governs the blast so that at any speed at which the harvester
may be traveling, the wind is automatically regulated and prevents
cloging the shoe and carrying the grain over in hte straw.
We take pleasure in Inviting you to call on Temple V Wilcox,
Pendleton, and mako a personal Inspection of each and every part of
our machines before placing your orders. Every machine warrant
ed to do all we claim for It and to bo first-class nl evry respect.

Development at the Highland Mine Justifies an Advance in the Price of Stock. It is Much More 3

CONSTANT DEVELOPMENT AND
A crew of men have been constantly at work ever
since we acquired this property and the Glasgow crosscut
us now encountered and fully crosscut the ledge. In this
eiosKcut we have oened up a body of ore sixteen feet in
width carrying good commercial values.
In shaking of commercial values we mean ores
Hch have a sufficient value to pay for the extraction
lu'lling and all other incidental expenses thereto, with
ntgh of a margin left over to pay good dividends to the
fhis large body of ore was not in the nature of a
surprise, we simply expected it, as the surface develop
ni'iits showed this same large body of ore, and thero was
reason why it should not le encountered in this cross
't and at this depth.

Tfsting to all who arc interested, or may become "titer
cited in the Highland mine, as it will certainly open up
ore IkmHcs rich in quality and in largo quantities.
It will demonstrate that the Highland will rank as one
of the largest producers in the district.
From now on the development work will he com
paratively easy and not very expensive, as we will bo
drifting alongthe ledge where the ground is much easier
to work than in tho country rock which encases the vein.
Kvery month will show a large increase in our ore reserves.
FREE TRIP TO THE HIGHLAND
To any one who wishes to invest a reasonable sum of
money in the Highland mine, we will pay all traveling
expenses to and from the mine for the purpose of his
making a jwrMmal examination.
J a offering you a freo trip to tho Highland wo feel
that this is proof within itself of the value of this prop

me out and look over this properly and tho district in
general. Jn offering to pay your expenses out here and

as we know positively that no one, no matter how great
or conservative an expert or mining engineer ho may be,
