From what we are able to
gather the recent excursion of
the business men of ; Portland
through Western and Southern
Oregon will be productive of
good results. It seems that
these ge tlemen now possess
clearer ideas of the opportunities most of the fodder was in the

are particularly pressing for
attention. ' First of all. the
business men of our great me-

John S. Watters, contributes
nn article in the last issue 'of the
Scientific American that will be
of interest to those of our readers
who work hirses and mules.
Here is the article:
I notice in your issue of the
28th iustant a sketch of what you
call a "soft-ground borstshoe,"
recently invented. : This reminds
me of an appliance used by my
father during the 50's , on mules
that were used for plowing and
harrowing lowland rice Gelds on
Clarendon Plantation, Brunswick
County, N. C, on west side of
the Cape Fear River, five miles
below the city of Wilmington,
These lands are so soft in many
places that horses or mules can
not walk across them without
sinking. The boots, as we called
them, were first made ot heavy
sole leather with wide, round
buttons, and extended up around
the animal s fetlocks, where they
were made fast with straps and
buckles. These were a failure.
When the leather became satur
ated with the water it would
double up and not support the
weight of the animal. My father
then made them of wood black
gum at much smaller cost, and
used them for years- with perfect
satisfaction. He was the first
planter to use them in this state,
and I think in the South. There
was no patent on them. All who
wanted to made and used them
It was the only way that mules
could be worked in many of the

The mules intended , for this
work were fitted with the boots
and allowed to ; loaf on the high

they were put in the soft land.
Gone to Las Vegas.
Tuesday, James C. Taylor of
this city, departed for Las Vegas,
New Mexico. There is quite
little story connected with hi
going. As is pretty gt nerally
known, Mr. Taylor's health has
not been good for several " vears
and he has vainly tried several
different "climates, with more or
less benefit. .'
Not long ago W. P. Laffert
of this citv, recalled '-thai fact that
many years back a business part
ner of bis (our townsman then
J resided in Missouri) suffered ii
health and went to New Mexico
in hopes of relief. The said
partner went to Las Vegas sn
went ssme thirteen miles out ot
town, taking up his abode' on
tarm tor a time. After a certain
period this gentleman returned to
his business in Missouri to ai
appearances in the best of health
Recently, Mr. Iyanerty wrote
his former partner and received
reply to the effect that the gentle
man continued in robust condi
tion and could do more work than
anybody. This letter also con
tained the address of the gentle
man wno ownea tne iarm near
Las Vegas. Mr. Laffertv then
wrote the latter and in due season
received an answer.
It seems that the man on th
place 13 miles out of Las Vega:
has fitted up a portion of his
farm for campers those who de
sire to live an out-ot-door life
Me has tents pitched aud every
thing in readiness lor all wh
may arrive at his place. Guests
experience no ; trouble whatever
on their arrival. The proprietor
of the farm provides everything
necessary for the h?alth and con
venience for -those on his farm
and charges them $35 per month.
.These f .cts Mr. L '-fferty com
municated to Mr. Taylor with
the result that the latter departed
at once for Las Vegas. This is
the place where the greatest open
air sanitarium 'iti "the world is
situated. It is at an elevation of
7,800 feet above sea level and
beyond doubt for many people is
as healthful as' any place on

of grains are raised, it is an econ
omical question, and the farmer
who ' feeds the grains that are
productive of the best results and
hauls the other to the mill cer
tainly will be the gainer.
So important has this question
of feed become that the director
of the experiment station has
taken it up and in a short time
will be able to give the results.
There are - three pens, each
containing four healthy shoates in
good condition.' One pen will
be fed ground barley, another
ground wheat and the third
ground vetch. The obiect of
the experiment, says Dr. Withy-
combe, "Is to find the relative
value of ground barley, compar
ed with ground wheat, and de
termine the value" of vetch as a
fattening teed. We take up the
matter of feeding vetch because
there is a possibility of over pro:
ductton for the seed market
This undoubtedly will be a fair
test of the three grains. . The
relative value of the, three grains
can be ascertained and , the best
pork producing, as well as the
cheapest food can be found.
freliminary arrangements- are
beme made for an experiment
which is to be conducted'm try
ing to find the value of ground
vetch as a food for cattle. In
this experiment, those in charge
will note the digestible value of
this food, determine whether or
not the animals like it and its
ability to suuain flesh. An effort
will be made to substitute ground
vetch for oil meat and determine
its value as a dairy food.
These experiments will be
watched very closely and the re
suits in each particular case will
be published in these columns.
