Crops and Stock Are Looking Fiie
; and All Bids Well For
What every visitor to Wallowa
county should do Is to take a ride up
the valley Into the Prairie Creek dis
trict. He will ' be surprised at
the thousands of acres of rich, level
land extending for miles off north,
aast and southland the .rapid settle
ment of that section of the valley
wll' stagger the mind that is looking
for a "new country." Farms there
are not only fenced but the most) of
them are cross fenced. Some of the
finest hogs, cattle and horses as .well
as sheep are found there. Some of
th best-toothy and, alfalfa lhi the
world are grown there. - Potatoes,
Leans, cucumbers', and all sorts' of
garden vegetables , and apples are
found flowering into perfection, - and
life is contributed to by almost all
phases of ncture. , ." .
Visit Hunt Ranch.
An Enterprise Press representative
visited at the H. S. Hunt ranch. This
ranch is snug against the foothills of
the mountain range, la level, Is pro
tected from winds, on from such
small winds as occur here, and is un
usually ,well protected1 from late
frosts by Its altitude. Mr. Hunt has
beans and cucumbers up out of the
ground. "He grows the most tooth
some sweet corn imaginable there,
ais potatoes have but one fault, and
that is, If he doesn't vatch them
grow too big. And all general farm
produce to grown on the ranch In
Watjer Power 'Handy.
In. addition to the general farming
and stock raising on this ranch,
Prairie Creek flows directly throuBh
the (arm and within ftcty feet, pf
the kitchen door. The fall of the
creek Is sufficient, within about 400
feet, to create good horse power,
and Mr. Hunt has harnessed enough
of this pqwer to do his own and the
neighborhood grinding. For about
that distance a flume baa been built,
conveying the water to a large ov
ershot wheel. This wheel turns the
jhof ting which la turn sets- the chc
min, elevator and all, Into operation.
When either Mr. Hunt or any of the
nelghrtortag ranchers desire barley
chopped or desire graham flour all
he has to do Is turn the water on
and start the mill.
Utilizing the same power, Mr, Hunt
run his cream separator. Formerly
before the timber went Into the re
serve, Mr. Hunt erected am Improvis
ed cross or drag saw, and made the
creek aa,w all his wood for him.
It was a ' pleasant visit Mr. and
Mrs. Hunt and their daughter gave
their guests from Enterpries, who
were: Dr. and Mrs. Moore, Mrs. Jeai
Ellis, and Mr. and Mrs. W. H. Dil
wo th. Mr. and Mrs. Hunt and fami
ly spared no pain to make the vis
It one of themost pleasant and all
departed feeling bettered from the
touch of sublime nature with which
the host and hostess and family are
surrounded dally.'
All crops throughout the entire
district traversed wer looking fine.
A more promising year never pre
sented kself to eastern Oregon
Off u the Elop country, too, fol
lowing tb read betwoen Joseph and
Enterprise, alt crops and stock are
in the most promising condition. New
ground lots of It has been broken
and seeled to this or that, and
the en tore topography of the land
scape has been changed by tbls hus
bandry, v
Twenty-three thousand, three hun
dred and otxty-tive acres of good,
rich, virgin Wallowa county land
has been released from thei for
est reserve and placed for entry by
the recent order of Secretary Ballln
gof. Other lands In Idaho, near Po
catello, involving a similar acreage,
were also restored to entry.
. This will be received with delight
ty every resident of Wallowa coun
ty, the lands (restored lying north,
iiorthwest and east of Enterprise,
cju will mean a more rapid develop
ment of the county agriculturally be
cause of a more rapid settlement
than otherwise. It ,wlll be received
with gratitude also by the prospec
tive eastern settler who was liter
ally turned back to his eastern
home by running against a reserve
that simply held new districts
from progress.

Troy, June 2. The body of Frank
Russell woo found late Sunday ev
ening, one mile below the ranch of
Charles Shoemaker, la the Grande
Ronde river. It was brought to
this city the first of the week for
Frank Russell drowned In the Lit
tle Salmon river, about four miles
above the river's mouth, April 24. He
was attempting to cross the stream
at the time. Searching parties , were
sent out Immediately, and a close
watch has been kept for the body
ever since, though no trace of it
before Sunday was found.
The body had been drifted down
ty the current four miles In the
Little Salmon river and down belov
the Shecmaker ranch on the Grande
Ronde, a total distance of over 25
miles. It la stated that though the
remains had been In the water for
so long a period, yet the, cold tem
perature of 'the rivers had preserv
ed it welL His remaining relatives
and friends both at the time of. his
death and In the recovery and
burial of the body have the sym
pathy of th whole county.
Lancashire Humor.
- There was a Lancashire collier' who
went out on Sunday with his wheel
barrow because, as he said, "I've tost
ml dog, an' a felly looks sich a foo'
gooln' a-walkln' bl hlsself." ,
Then there was the worklngmen's
club committee which wanted to in
dorse the accounts "audited and found
correct and tuppence over" and the .
customer who, on being told that the
price of candles had gone up owing to
the war, asked whether they were
"felghtln' bl candle leot" '
Also one recalls the laggard Lan
cashire lover who, when asked for a
kiss, said be was "gooln' to do it In a
bit," and the old ladles who praised a
certain Darwin clergyman as "a grand
burler," and of the orator who trans
lated "Dleu et mon droit" Into VEvll be
to him what evil thinks!" "Lancashire
Life and Character," by Frank Orme
rod. Japan's Giant WrsitUrs.
Japanese wrestlers are not con
fused with Japanese exponents of Jlu
JHhu. The wrestlers belong to the
older school, In which weight Is a par
amount quality. It la a remarkable
thing that a race which Is on the av
erage four or Ave Inches under the Eu
ropean standard In point of height
should have produced a special cult of
wrestlers who are giants In stature
and strength. The leading wrestlers
of Tokyo or Osaka or Illogo are all
men at least six feet In height and
Weighing perhaps 800 pounds. They
are a race apart. Wrestling Is an oc
cupation which has been banded uown
from father to sou for many genera
tions. And the explanation of their
prowess is that they have always been
meat eaters, while the rest of Japan,
either from choice or necessity, have
been In the main vegetarians.
