Some Idea of the big increase in
value of sheep is indicated in a circuit
court suit filed in the office of Clerk J
A. French, Friday. N. C. Longfellow of
Joseph, by his attorney, D. W. Sheahau,
asks judgment agayist Huffman & Son
(John W and Arnold R.) the sheep
firm, for $4800, because of the failure of
the latter to deliver to him 2800 lambs
at alleged contract price of f 1.50 per
head. The f 4800 is supposed to repre
sent the difference between the contract
price, and the reasoneme marser, vaiuo,
The complaint alleges an agreement
made Nov. 2, 1904, between plaintiff and
defendants bv which the latter were to
sell him all the lambs they raised from
their band of sheep during 1905 and
1906, at 81.50 a head, the price of the
lambs to credited on a promissory note
for (12676. given plaintiff by defendants.
It is claimed that about Sept. 1, 1905,
the Huffmans paid the note, thereby
prevented plaintiff from crediting the
price of the lambs on said note, even if
they had delivered the increase of their
flock to him. However he says they did
not deliver the lambs, and that they
raised not less than 1100 in each of the
two years, and the reasonable market
price of the little baas was ?3 each. He
claims to have been damaged to the ex
tent of $2400 for each of the two years.
This is the third time this matter lias
been in the conrte, and a non-suit de
cision of the circuit court was appealed
to the supreme court which sustained
the decision of the lower court v

After November 1, homesteaders who
commute must have actually resided on
the land for 14 months. The six
mouths constructive residence is done
away with, according to a circular from
the general land office, the gist of the
ruling being as follows:
"By ruling just announced, no com
mutation proof offered under a home
stead entry made on or before Novem
ber 1, 1907, will be accepted unless
Buch proof shows that the entryman
has, in good faith, actually resided up
on and cultivated the land embraced ,
within his entry for the full period of
of fourteen months, thus doing away
with the constructive residence period
"The ruling just announced, however, .
will not affect liorr estead entries made
previous to Kovembcr 1, and commuted
to cash, if, when proof la made, it is sat
isfactorily shown Jthat the entryman
established actual residence on the
land embraced within his entry within
Bix months from date of entry, in which
case he may be credited with construc
tive residence from date of ei try, but
in this connection i the entryman must
show that his residence, once establish
ed, was maintained in good faith for
such perixl as, when added to period of
constructive residence will equal the
full period of 14 months' residence re
quired under the commutation claaae
of tho homestead aot. Commutation
proofs will not be accepted when they
fail to show that the required residence
and cultivation was continued to the
date on which application to make final
proof was filed in the local land office."
