Trustee In Bankruptcy Sella Band of Fiae
Blooded Short Hora Durham Cat
tle. The Aftermath.
Last Friday, J. O. Wilson,
trustee ot the bankrupt estate nf
J. M. Usburo, sold at public auc
tion, one at a time, to the highest
bidder, for cash, fortv-five head
of blooded cattle, being the entire
herd remaining in the estate of J.
M. Osburn, . and the finest
blooded thoroughbreds ever col.
lectedm one band in Benton
j. ms saie was tne hrst cf its
kind in the county, if not ia the
state, and marks an era in the
blooded cattle business in this
valley. In the eastern states
breeders of fine stock usually hold
a saic oi uiooqcq sr.e)CJc one or
more times a year, advertise ex
tensively and draw large numbers
of stockmen interested in the dis
persion of fine blood throughout
tne stock-raising country, and
sell the stock at such sales at
good prices. This is a settled
business in the eastern states, and
the results are very advantageous
to those who follow that line of
business. And also to all persons
engaged in stock-raising, incul
cating an ambition to produce
the best grade of stock, and- in
volving the exercise of the best
metnoas or. canng lor, and rais-i
ing the stock."
At the Osburn sale, which was
extensively advertised, there col
lected somewhere from oie to two
hundred stock men, interested in
the production of the best grades
of cattle, who had been attracted
from all parts of the state- and the
bidding was spirited.
The first property sold was mis
cellaneous property, such as the
unexempted mower, hoe, spade,
harness, and the like, which all
brought in the aggregate $62.55.
The next property sold was a
parcel of fine blooded cows,
which had been claimed by J. J.
Houck, of Gold Hill, as his( in
dividual cattle, and so mortgaged
to N. B. Avery, of this city, last
August, together with other j
blooded cattle of J. M. Osburn.
This band of cows, sold one at a
time, for the aggregate price of
$1,419; the lowest price of any
cow being $40, and the highest
The next parcel sold was four
older cows, which, ranged from
$37 to $78? aggregating $214. ?
Seventeen last suminer calves
went next at prices ranging from
$27.50 to $100, the latter being
the price brought by a calf named
Roosevelt. A curious feature of
the calf sale was the names of the
calves. It seems that when : the
calves were weanedthey were tag
ged in the ears for identification,
and with the tag they were also
named, and these "names took in
several illustrious personages, such
as K.oosevelf, . who broueht the
banner price-1 -of $100, sold
to Dick Kieer; Hobson. who
brought $69, to John Wyatt. Mc
Kinley went to T. E. Hamilton.
of Linn county, for $80. The
seventeen calves aggregated $962.
Ine bull, Meddler, went to John
Smith for $255, and Young Ar
drie to George Houck, for $150.
lhe entire blooded band aggre
gated exactly $3,000, which is a
curious ' circumstance, in that so
many cattle at aSction should
bring, sold one at a time, just an
even figure. A happy circum
stance, too, . since that, reaches
more than double the appraised
valuation of the cattle.
Referee Bryant held a term of
the bankruptcy court on Satur
day, and confirmed the sale in

in the petition of trustee of that
estate, filed something over ten
days ago. Sale to be made on
execution, which means by ad
vertised notice- in tne newspapers
lor lour weeks, and posted notice
stuck up in the county for the
same length of time.
The Osburn: land will be sohl
about the same time, on a simi
lar order, with the same kind of
a notice, and these land sales
will occur sometime between the
first and middle of Tune, as soon
as legal notice can be eivenv It
is stated by the trustees, of - both
estates to be the intention to sell
the properties as the law allows
and wind up the estates as soon
as possible. ..
The sale tf the Osbura cattle
clears the estate, of property
which there has been any risk In
Holding. During the trustees
custody, two of the blooded cows
haTe died: one ia a ditch
and one eating a poisonous weed,
according to our informant. As
to what aispositita the court will
make f the proceeds, oaly the
court can determine. The or
ders to the trastee were t sell
the cattle forthwith, and in the
manner in which he sold them,
and to report the amounts for
which they sold, as they have
been reported as above stated,
aad after that the jadf ment.
The judgment, however, will not
be rendered until after all con
cerned shall have had an oppor
tunity to furnish Judge Bellinger
with their reasons and their e?i-
dence, as to where the money
shall be apslled. Since the
property and controversy has
been reduced to money, and put
111 tne bank, doubtless the par
ties interested in it will move
rapidly in the matter, and this
estate be quickly wound up and
all that pertains to it be relegated
