That Wicked Steer
Quite a bit of Interest has been
aroused by the request that has been
sent out by the management of Happy
Canyon for a wicked, fighting steer to
be used here during the Round-Up at
the night show. Albert Peterson of
Ukiah has let it bo known that he
thinks there are several out In that
part of the country that can prove
their right to be called the onerlest
longhom fighters in Eastern Oregon,
and he Is busily engaged in lining up
several entries. On the recent tour of
Grant county, James Sturgis ran
across a cattleman who had just ship
ped a particularly pugnacious animal
to Portland. The search will be con
tinued. In the meantime, other vicini
ties are carefully going over herds to
see If they have something in the way

Interest of Happy Canyon's Show.
