One night last week at Newport,
the driving horse belonging to Sam
Goff took a stong dislike to the sea
breeze and started for home in
Independence. After traveling
several miles he came to the place
belonging to Dave Williams.
Mr. Williams promptly tied him to
the fence to await development. In
the meantime Mr. Goff, missing the
animal, succeeded in tracking him
to the William's ranch.
. It is said that the mail order
business is somewhat on the wane.
It is well if this is so. The United
States has too many great depart

parts of the land and flooding the
rural districts with circulars and
catalogues to the detriment of home
trade and borne prosperity. It iff
to be remembered that as a rule
the mail order goods are not up to
the mark in quality. Close analy

the orders can be filled by home

their big yard this week. It will

being dipped in carbolineum avena

The young hops on the Krebs
place are looking fairly well. The
vines are from three to six feet high
and the per centage of missing
hills is about 15 per cent, leaving
about 85 per cent stand. It is not

to attempt to save any first

The Stump Farm where Cottwold,
Lincolnshire, Short Horns.
Jerseys and Angora
In stalking around over Polk
county, the editor of the North
Pacifio Rural Spirit, runs on to one
real live stump and after punning
on the name for awhile relates some
facts worth knowing about this
stump and the country that pro
duces that species.
The Rural Spirit says:
"There ar a good meny stumps
in Polk county some oak stumps,
some fir stumps and some ash
stumps but there is one real live
stump over there; it doesn't sprout,
though, because it movrs about too
fast; there is no moss on it either,
but it is sometimes covered with
andt of dollars worth of fine stock,
"On the farm is a herd of well
bred Jerseys as well as a herd of
Shorthorns headed by a fine bull
imported from Indiana in 190.'!.
"Mr, Stump is still breeding An
goras, although not quite so ezten
eively as formerly. lie has gained
quite a reputation with his goat
and they nave made nlui enough
money to buy a pretty good farm
He still keeps a small select flock
"The Cotswolds and Lincolns
are the idols of his heart, aad
when Mr. Stump is not talkin
about them you may well suspicion
that he is sick."
Portland is preparing for one
the longest race meetings eyer at

Attorney-General Crawford came
up from Salem on his wheel Sun
dav evening and remained over
till Monday morning. In consider
ation for his feelings, alter a spin
over Polk county on Sunday, he
returned by stage Monday morn
ing. Among the matters claiming
the Attorney-General's attention
now are the direct primary nomi
nations law, and the foreclosure
suit wherein the state is plaintiff
and defendant. Some $20,000 is
owing the irreducible school fund
from the State Board of Agriculture
and the statute of limitations will
have run before the legislature
meets. Rather than permit the
debt to become outlawed, the At
torney-General commenced fore
closure proceedings to protect the
school fund against ihe agricultural
board fund. General Crawford is
also devoting some time to the
checking up and familiarizing him
self with the workings of the di
reel primary law under which noni'
inations will have to be made for
the next election after the presi
dential election. The Attorney
General advises that no changes be
made in the law until after it is

"Polk county is supposed to have
been named after the late James
K. Polk, but we hardly think this
is true. Oregon was, no doubt, the
last state that was made when this
country was put together, and
Polk was the last county in the
state. After making all the other
states and countiei they had a big
lot of rich land, fine country and
beautiful scenery left, and after
poking it all into this county they
just called it Polk.
"Since traversing this beautiful
county, nearly 25 years ago, the
writer has traveled many thousand
miles and seen much of the beauti
ful, fertile land of this vast do
main, but for pretty farms, attrao
tiye home sites and delightful
landscape, we can recall notbiDg
that quite equals that of Polk
county. To drive over the good
roads and see the pleasant farm
homes shaded by the dense foliage
of their shapely maples, surrounded
by their fruitful orchards, fertile
gardens and broad fields of waying
grain, beautified by the handsome
groves of stately oak, ash and fir,
to see the fat, sleek stock continu
ously grazing in the rich pastures,
to see the rich clover blossoms and
scent the sweet fragrance of the
new mown hay, to expand your
lungs with pure ozone on a perfect
June day, is an experience at once
inspiring and intoxicating.
"Amid such surroundings it is
natural to expect the most perfect
development of human character
as well as the highest type of ani
mal growth. It is in the heart of
this rich and scenic country that
Mr. Stump lives and produces his j

"Mr. stump commenced opera
tions here about seventeen years
ago with 500 acres of land. What
was not covered with oak grubs
had been continuously raising
grain until it was about grained to
death and was not supposed to be
worth much. By a careful system
of rotation of crops in which
clover, vetch and rape have been
the principal factors, be has
brought his land up to a high state
of cultivation and productiveness
and by , keeping good stock of
almost all kinds common to the
farms of this cenntry to graze his
pasture and consume the product
of his fields, he has been able te
save money from, the profits of his
farm : and add . to his possessions
ntil now his farm contains 7 1400
