Engineer Georgo 0. Darnhart, of
Starbuck, havo returned from Port
land, whero tlioy held a two-days'
conferonco with Superintendent J. P.
While thero wore no specific griev
ances to be considered, there wero
many llttlo matters which had accu
mulated during the past year, which
needed adjustment and this short con
ference was held for this purpose.
Later In the season, It is expected
that tho engineers and firemen on the
mountain division will ask for a
small ralso in wages, on accouiit of
tho largo engines used exclusively
on that division. Thoy are encour
aged In bollovlng they will readily
recelvo a raise by tho fact that the
wages of freight brakemen havo re
cently been advanced from $2.G0 to
3.0C per 100 miles, on tho mountain.
A Good Show.
A good house greeted tho presenta
tion of tho Fleming Brothers' show at
the opera house last evening. Tho
pictures that they represented were
beautiful and Instructive and ranged
from tho comic to tho sublime. Jit.
Peleo was shown as It was beforo tho
eruption and after. The scenes of the
passion play wero very good but a lit
tle dim from tho back of tho house.
Tho illustrated- songs were beautiful
as far aa the songs went and would
havo been very entertaining had tho
volco of tho singer been audible to
audience. However, on tho whole, it
was a very good show and well worth
the money charged at the door.

THE FOOL R008TER.
He's Always Crowing, But It's the
Hen That Lays the Eggs.
I've heard a good deal In ray time
fiihnP9H of hens, but
whon It comes to right down, plum
foolishness give me a rooster every
time. He's always strutting and
stretching and crowing and bragging
about things with widen he had noth
ing to do. When the sun rises, you d
think that ho was making all tho light
instead of tho noise. When the
farmer's wife throws the Bcraps In the
ltenyard, ho crows as if ho was tno
provider for tho wholo farmyard and
was asking a blessing on tho food.
When he meets another rooster, no
crows and when the other rooster
licks him ho crows. And so ho keeps
It up straight through tho day. Ho
oven wakes up (luring tho night and
crows a llttlo on general principles.
But when you hear from a hen shos
laid an egg, and sho don't make a
great deal of nolso about it eitner.

THE WHEAT YIELD.
Figures Given Out by Department of
According to tho estimates of the
department of agriculture, tho Amer
ican wheat crop of 1903 will be tho
greatest that the country has ever
produced. The acreage of winter
wheat is 34,000,000 this year, and it
Is predicted that this vast area will
yield moro than 500,000,000 bushels
of grain. Tho winter and spring con
ditions havo been perfect, tho experts
say, for tho growing crop, and there
Is no probability of failure later in the
year. Wo aro accustomed to largo
figures in this country, but this es
timated crop is far ahead of anything
that has over been recorded. It
means a prosperous year for the farm
ers and an unprecedented amount of
business for tho railroads and inci
dentally Increased activity in all other
branches of business.
