form and that they would havo to bo
dippod twice bofore they could be al
lowed on trains. As the government
has tho bulgo on tho state deputy,
the cattle will have to be dipped as
directed, at a cost to the owners of
$1,000, before they can be delivered
to their purchasers.
Which Is right in the controversy
is har'd to determine. Christy says
they haven't and Lantz says they
have. The first says ho can prove
they have no scab by a microscopic
examination, and tho other claims
that there is no Instrument powerful
enough in this part of tho country to
tell the scab if it was burled in It.
So thoro you are, and It seoms that
tho only way out of the trouble Is
for the owners to pay the freight
Mr. Rigby says tho cattle had the
scab about a year ago, or perhaps a
little farther back than that, but
that the disease was cured to the sat
isfaction of all at that time, and
since tho cattle have not been ex
posed In any way. He doesn't think
tho cattle aro diseased. Neither did
Colonel Wood, the auctioneer, but
may he they arc.
Puzzling Case In Evidence.
The scab question is a puzzling
one, always. Some time ago a prom
inent sheepman who has been ship
ping large bands of sheep out of the
country during the past winter, had
a large shipment from Echo. His
sheep wore Inspected and about half
of them were hold up, it being claim
ed that they had the scab. The rest
of tho band was sent to California.
The condemned portion was turned
out on the rango and allowed to run
for a couple of weeks, when they
were again herded Into the stock
yards for shipment. As the scab had
in the meantime disappeared, they
were passed without a question, and
aro now on the Sacramento ranges
undipped and clean.

Brooks has conducted the revival for

since the departure of Itov. Martin.
Today closes tho first year of Itov.
N H. Brooks' services as pastor of
this church and the record Is one of
unusual interest. At tho time Mr.
Brooks camo to Pendleton, tho
church had just been built at a cost
of $11,000, and had a debt of $5,000
unprovided for, with a membership
of but 40.
During, the past year tho entire
church debt has been provided for,
tho membership Increased from 40
to !5C0, and a total of $9,400 raised
from all sources, by plodges and
Tho total membership would havo

that about 25 havo moved away.
This makes tho Christian church tho
