Cattle Die Of
Hemorrhagic Septicemia
Two yearling steers belonging
to H. C. Stephens of George died
Monday from hemorrhagic sep­
ticemia and another animal be­
longing to Peter Ruhl is reported
to have succumbed.
As two other young animals of
Mr. Stephens were sick with the
same symptoms on Tuesday, he
immediately sent for State Vet­
erinarian Lytle.
Apparently the disease found
by Mr. Lytle is not a new one,
although not heretofore preva­
lent in this district, although in
the past week or two, herds of
animals at Cherryville. Anderson
and at other points along the
Clackamas Multnomah Count y
line have been stricken and it
was at first reported the animals
were the victims of intentional
Mr. Lytle says that the trouble
is caused by the animals grazing
over land, that under ordinary
conditions is wet find marshy,
but which now is dry and con­
tains a bacillus knowm as hem­
orrhagic septicemia, causing a
form of blood poisoning.
Mr. Lytle immediately vacci­
nated the remaining stock of Mr.
Stephens and offers to vaccinate
any and all stock in this commu­
nity, if the owners desire.
As there is no charge for this
vaccination applied by the State
Veterinarian, parties desiring
same are asked to notify the
News office and as soon as a suffi­
cient number have signified a de­
sire for this treatment, Mr. Lytle
will gladly come to Estacada and
from here make a trip into all
nearby districts.
To Enlarge Garage Facilities
In order to accomodate the
growth and demand for more
space in their rapidly expanding
business, the Estacada Garage
has had the grading and excava-
ing completed on the north side
of their building, preparatory to
the laying of the foundations for
a fire proof annex.
In this annex will be housed
the mechanical and repair de­
partments, the new space being
planned to occupy aboutone half
as much ground as the present
It is possible that after the
work gets under way. Mgr.
Reed will decide to rebuild the
entire garage and of fire-proof­
ed, tile material.
Rain Badly Needed
Unless a good rain is forth­
coming in this section within the
next few days, the farmers of
this community will suffer a
great loss, especially in grain,
potatoes and berries.
The present drought is work­
ing a hardship and financial loss
on the R. C. Deming Packing
Company of Estacada and on the
growers of small fruits and pro­
duce, as the loganberries and
raspberries at this time on the
bushes are drying up. As the
cannery is under contract to fur­
nish a number of carloads of
these canned fruits this season,
it is proving a serious condition.
Rains were reported last week
from places -nearby, with Hood
River have received a good one
ten days ago. In as much as
heavy clouds have hung over
this district several times in the
past twm weeks, there is still
hopes of relief, although it will
be too late to help certain grain
An unusually early frost was
experienced here the latter part
of last w'eek, with reports receiv­
ed from George. Currinsville.
