and the majority of them expect to

Heavy Sales of Live Stock.
The sale of sheep, cattle and horse
from tbe Oregon ranges this fall will
be tho heaviest In years. This Is the
opinion of C. J. Millls, who has charge
of the stock department ot tbe O. It.
& N. He has been over a large por
tlon of the ranges and report that
feed will be scarce this fall. Large
shipments of cattle were made from
this district last spring and Mr. Millls
expects that still larger shipments
will be made this fall. He says
large amount ot stock will have to he
sent out ot the country in order to
even up for the shortage of the feed
crop. The shortage of fees In some
parts Is probably due to a lack of rain,
Wool Prices are Climbing.
Owing to the shortage' of wool In
Montana and Utah the' prices of wool
In Eastern Oregon will be higher than
had been anticipated. At the large
sale held at Ontario a 'abort time ago
wool sold at from 13 to 14 cents,
Many did not sell and since that time
some have sold at 15 cents. The
prices are still going up. Some ot the
leading sheep and wool men say the
range Is exceptionally short this sea'
son, as there has been scarcely any
rain since spring. Everything Is
dried up. There Is lots of stock In the
district, and It Is feared by the owners
there will be large losses this year If
wet season does not start soon.
Quarrying Rock for tbe Jetty.
Work on opening the rock quarry
at Bugby U progressing rapidly and
100 additional men have been put to
work there. Great difficulty Is be
ing encountered at. the quarry as well
as at the Jetty In securing enough la
borers, as many of them feel too rich
as soon as they have earned a few
dollars, and they loaf until they spend
It. Two rock trains aro now being
run on the railway, and each makes
two round trips to the Jetty dally, ao
a large amount of rock Is being delivered.
