The late report of the Minnesota. State
Food and Dairy Commission contains th
result of a series of experiments made by
Prof. C. W. Drew, state chemist, to deter
mine the strength and keeping qualities of
the various baking powders.
The report attaches great importance to
these experiments. Baking powdera that
vary in strength, or that readily . lose
strength before use, are unreliable and wiil
not give evsn results; besides, it is aq indi
cation of the me of improper ingredieuts in
their compounding. The tests showed .the
strength or leavening power of the Royal
very much greater than that of the others.
The uniformity of strength of all the sam
ples of Royal tested, no matter what their
age, was remarkable. Its leavening power
was practically unimpaired even in the old
63t specimens. The difference in the amount
of leavening gas in different samples of the
other brands was so great as to seriously im
pair their usefulness in baking. As much
as 24 per cent, loss was found in samples a
few months old. . AH the samples of Roysl
examined by State Chemist Drew were re
ported of satisfactory strength sod quality,
Dr. Drew states that the "Royal" being
of greater strength than any other, and pos
sessing better keeping qualities, it is the
natural conclusion that it is the best baking
powder made. '

A Little Girl Earned.
Wednesday morning a frightful accident
happened to little Cora Dawson at her

ped the lighted match on the sidewalk and
then nntlioughtedly sat down upon it. In

was enveloped in flames
Mrs. Dawson heard her screams and
rushed ont with a little baby in ber arms

he was badly excited and would have
been burned with her baby' bad it not been
for the timely arrival of Mrs. Martin, who
ves in the same house. She threw a
blanket around the girl and put out the
re, bnt not until it had consumed the
little oue'a dress, with the exception of a
narrow strip in the front. Her arms and
bacs were burned to a blister and the skin
came off. - -
A physician was called and be soon had
ber resting easy, and he says with careful
treatment the girl will recover. Mrs.
Dawson's left band was badly burned, which
very unfortunate for her, as she has to
take in washing to support a worthless hus
band. Dawson draws a small amount of
money froir. the indigent soldiers' fund and
spends that and what his wife makes be

In 1S91 eastern Oregon had a total wheat
yield of nearly 6,000,000 bushels, and it is
estimated that not over 3,000,000 bushels
will be harvested this year. The greatest
injury and loss is in Wasco, Sherman, Gil
liam and Morrow counties, where last year
they had 2,300,000 bushels and this year
the four counties will not have a total yield
of 1,000,000 bushels. A great many farmer
are discouraged and some will not be able
to secure seed and feed. The conditions are
nearly as bad as thev were in 1S89. Wheat
on the higher belt of Umatilla county and
on the reseryation is in fine condition and
it will yield about a well as it did last
year. Iu Union county the prospects are
good. In the other counties the unfavor
able prospects continue. . Haying is in pro
gress and very good, yields are reported.
Peaches, apples and plums are ripening at

of the apples about The Dalles.
There will bo no . general failure of crops
in Oregon this year, though the wheat will
be scarce in some localities.

The old saying that "All signs fail iu
Oregon" is generally true, yet there are a
few well defined - signs which are true in
from 80 to 95 cases out nt 100. These signs
mote truly apply to western . Oregoo,
though thev are quite generally true of
eastern Oregon as well. The signs men
tioned iu the following lines can well be
used in conjunction with the weather fore
casts which are now displayed by flags in
many places of the State, and will assist
the public to a more general understanding
of the weather probabilities.
The barometer is the important factor in
weather forecasting, and all progressive

A falling barometer indicates approaching
rain and usually warmer weather. aA rising
barometor indicates clearing or fair weather
and lower temperature. These are the gen
eral local results. ' '

falling barometer and light wind from any
point of the compass and then the wind in
creasing in force indicates an early rise in
the barometer. A sudden fall or a sodden
nse in the barometer indicates unsettled
weather, but a steady-and slow fall or a
teady and slow rise, indicates, in the for
mer, continued bad weather, in the latter.
better and continued' good weather. A
steady barometer, high, low or normal, in -
dicates continued weather such as it is at
the time of these barometric changed con
ditions. Rain followed by clearing weather at sun
set and cloudless at night will' be followed
by rain the next day. Rain one day and

Rain iu the morning np to 9 or. 10 o'clock is

Harbor bill. Anvils were tired off, rockets
sent up, and bombs exploded. The blocks
between Court and Washington, and the
one east were crowded with citizens, and
great enthusiasm prevailed. Op the' porch
above the drug store speeches were made
by Judge Bradshaw, Capt. Lewis, Hon. V
H. H. Dufur and others, aod tbey were
cheered to the echo. The music by the
band was excellent, and the enthusiasm
manifested was something that has not been
equalled for a long time We feel joyful
over the success before the bouse, and we
have strong hopes that President Harrison
will sign the bill; but, being of a conserva

bill is very liberal, and when it receives the

For many years bands of wild cattle "have
roamed through the heavily wooded mount
ainous regioi-s bordering the Coqnelle and
the high range about Coos bay in this state.
They are remnants of wild bands which in
the early settlement of the country wan
dered away from the pioneers. . For a long
time it war impossible to do anything with
them. Men who lost cattle were in need of
meat, bad no other recourse than to ride,
rifle in band, into the almost impenetrable
woods and at the first sight of an animal,
shoot it down.
These wild cattle have been about as hard
to kill as deer or antelope. If once they
caught sight of a man they were off like the
wind. Calves born in the forest are as wild
as buffaloes, and growing up unaccustomed
to the sight of man, they have always re
mained so. Accustomed to the wood?, to
climbing In'eli mountains and to literally
look ont for themselves in a region infested
by bears and other wild animals, they baye
come to a wonderful end a ranee and to be
almost as fleet ss elk which inhabit the
same regions. The first wild cattle known
to exist infested a region in the mountains
near Riddles. It was here that cattle bant
ing, alter the manner enumerated, was
adopted. Among the most skilled hunters
were the Riddle boys, sons ot the pioneer
lor whom the town on the Uregon and Ual
uornia railroad is named, from time to
time it has been supposed that most of
these wild cattle bad been killed or had died
natural deaths, but every once in a while
tbey are re-discovered in the higher mount
I he latest wild cattle found are among
the tall pine and hr of shoalwater bav and
Gray's Harbor. They are fat and sleek, ss
a rule of unnsual size. Occasionally one is
killed, but not often. There is good feed
for them there, and they rarely venture out
of the wooded wilderness, not till the
bulk of the timber is off, which mnst be
more than a generation hence, will the wild
cattle become extinct.

Attorian, July 5: A sad accident, result
ing in the deatn of Henry J-einenweber,
occurred yesterday morning on the steamer
Astorian, as the steamer was lying at
Parker's dock. It appears that Leinen-
weber, who was employed as a deck hand
aboard the steamer, bad been np town visit
ing friends. What time be returned aboard
the watchman cannot state. However,
at 3 A. at. Leinen weber was seen to leave bis
bunk in the stern of the vessel and make
his way forward. The watchman observed
him leaning over the side of the steamer
on the troigut deck as though sick and try
ing to relieye his stomach, Leinenweber
being dressed only in a shirt, pants and
shoes. The watchman thinking the man
but alightly indisposed, paid no attention
and turned to his duties, when he was
startled by a splash .and oatory. Running
forward nothing was to be aeen of Leinen
weber. The watchman seized the heaving
line and threw it oyer the aide of the boat
at the same time calling to the drowning
man to grasp it. Ia the blackness of tba
night it was impossible to tell whether Lein
enweber came to the surfaoe after falling
overboard or was drawn under the steamer
by the strong ebb tide running, for, despite
the watchman, following down the out
guard of the steamer with the drift of the
heaving line, no further sight of the man
as caught, .
