Of interest to sheepmen in the
valley is the.demand from the sheep
men of eastern Oregon for pure bred
rams. This is the first time in three
year that sheepmen have come to
the valley for breeding stock. Prac
tically all tho available Hampshire
rums have been sold, as well as
some Lincoln. Those furnishing
rum for shipment to eastern Oregon
ruriKc are: Dr. L. E. Kctchum and
L. C. Bulifson. HampKhires; and W.
T. Hoffmen, Lincoln. The pries
naid for these nure-bred rams, $27.50
each F. O. B. Independence, was very
satisfactory and indicates a healthy
tone in the aheep industry. The
moral to be drawn from the above Is
that pure-bred sheep eat no more
feed than scrubs.

steadfast purpose, which brought no
small measure of success in a finan

well regulated life. Kindly and gentle
