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.

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 cash. Tho total membership would havo been 385 now, wero it not for tho fact that about 25 havo moved away. This makes tho Christian church tho largest congregation In tho city, with one of the most spacious and elegant church buildings in the state . OF IS GALLED DOWN Treaty With That Mohamme dan Mogul is Abrogated by Washington. FAILURE TO CARRY OUT CONTRACT THE REASON.
