Ten of tlje lealing farmers in the,

of Portland, a fine imported I'er
cheron stallion at a cost of $3,000.
The horse is one of the best ever
brought to the Northwest, and took
the blue ribbon in his class at the
state fair at Salem this year, lie is
a steel gray, three years 'old, and
weighs r.Cco pounds. He is a
horse of magnificent proportion nud
fine action and will be a valuable
adjunct to the farmers and breeders
ol this county. I he Chronicle isj
of the opinion that the raising of
good horses in this part of Central

leading enterprises, as horses do ex

When Princvillc learned this,

decided to start a movement for
