The lands lie on the south and
west of the Umatilla river, and
are rated A 1 and among the
most productive fruit and alfalfa j
lands in the Northwest. The
soil is deep and the land all has
a natural drainage into the Uma
tilla river, which is a very im
portant factor in irrigated lands.
As an evidence of the produc-!
tiveness of this rich soil one has '

STOLEN SADDLE RECOVERED
About a year ago while the
funnily were in the east a stride
saddle, belonging to A D.
Thomson's little girl, was stolen
from the residence of O. P.
Thomson on Butter creek.
Parties were strongly sus
pected at the time of theft, but
no direct evidence could be ob
tained against them until a few
days ago, when the saddle was
seen in possession of one of the
family upon whom suspicion bad
been cast. Accordingly last
Monday A. B. Thomson went to
Pendleton and swore out a search
warrant on the premises of one
R. II. Jones, living on Butter
creek, and Tuesday morning re
turned with Deputy Sheriff Joe
Blakely and together they drove
out to the Jones home and found
the stolen saddle.
Jones was not at home when
the officer and Mr. Thomoon ar
rived, and the woman at first de
nied living there or knowing
anything about the matter.
After considerable questioning,
however, she acknowledged the
truth and the saddle was found
stored in a little room boarded
and nailed up.
A warrant is out for the ar
rest of Jones and the officers are
using every effort to apprehend

To an American newspaper
man it is interesting to note the
manner in which the colonial
English , newspapers are made
op. They still cling to the
methods which wera practiced
in this country fifty years ago,
the advertisements being upon
the first few pages, followed
generally by the heavy editor

and telegraphic items, after
wards the local news. The lo
cal news consists principally of
the proceedings of the legisla

board, etc. Contributions by

With few exceptions the ad
vertising pages would give our

They seem to have little con
ception of the value of apace or
of attractive methods of pre
senting either the text or the
illustrations. A pleasing relief
to this monotony is atiorded by
the "ads" of American adver
tisers which are rather numer
ous on their pages. We see
many old friends among these
advertisers, and prominent
among these is the Chamberlain
