Incidentally, county division In

Crook county taxpayers who feel that
tholr officials should rccolvo a salary
reduction now that tho territory un

down about two-thirds.
Hero is Just what tho bill docs:
Deduces county judge's salary from
$1000 to ?800.

lll'YS AYHSHIDi: HULL.
(From Saturday's Dally.)
A registered Ayrshire bull was ro
colved on Thursday by Klmor Worn
staff, living east ot Ilend. Tho ani
mal was purchased from Mr. Worn-
staff's brother-in-law, ot Skamock
aw a, Wash., who has a largo herd
ot tho thoroughbred Ayrshire cattle
Tho bull Is named Ilobln Hood
First of Evergreen aud has a pedi
gree ot unusual length. Mr. Worn-
atatt Is gradually .disposing ot his
Jorseya aud Holstotns,
Thoro Booms to bo no subject so
abused and mistreated as Central
Oregon Jack rabbits. Few rcallzo tho
volumo or tonnage, and no ono has
offered a practical schema whereby
tho rabbits may bo decimated at n
profit. I wish to ntato at tho outset
any ono suggesting poisoning thorn
should bo arrested nt once. A rabbit
lives and foods on raw material
(when ho can't get tho homestead
ers' crop), and reproduces whero
other anlmaU would not succeed to
any great oxtcnt.
It Is estimated by a gcntloroan
conversant with Control Oregon that
tho tonnage of rabbits Is ten times
grcator than all tho domestic live
stock ot tho stato, and when you con
sider tho rabbit's ability to roproduco
his spcclo, tho tonnago would bo
phenomenal, when considered for a
numbor ot years.
When tho people of Crook county
voted a bounty, If Instead, they had
votod a lump sum for putting up a
plant or sorles ot plants for taking
caro of rabbits, they would linvo
dono something logical and general
Thcro is but one logical solution
of the rnbbit question to bo ot great
est good to tho greatest number. Tho
rabbits should bo caught In traps, not
poisoned. They should bo delivered
to a central convenient point, thoro
skinned, tho skins dried and baled;
Tho bodies, bones, entrails and all
should bo ground, tho molsturo evap
orated, and the granulated meat and
bono mixed with a balanced ration
of evaporated root crops (turnips,
carrots, bcots nnd rutabagas), nlfnl
fn meal, and mixed grains. This
product is by far tho finest chicken
and hog food ovor produced, nnd
slnco Central Oregon cannot bo sur
passed In tho quality of any of tho
Ingredients montloucd, a very largo
business can bo produced. This
would furnish a largo winter Incomo
for homesteaders and supply tho egg
producers with tho most Ideal food
ever put on the market.
Tho evaporator for handling this
work should bo a tonnago producor
capablo of handling largo volumes
of meat In winter and a big tonungo
ot root crops In tho summor and
fall. A rough estimate on production
of this class ot material based on tho
cstlmnto ot rabbits and their logical
yearly reproduction would glvo Cen
tral Orcgou an Incomo of $125,000,
000 per yenr, from a pest and non
commercial product nt present.
Tho fur thon would bo a big pro
duct and offor soma remuneration
as well as supply n demand that has
been met by foreign countries.
As a hog teed for brood saws and
young pigs, tho food could not bo Im
proved upon, nnd all largo chicken
and egg producing editors would bo
To bo plain, you would not hnvo
to run utter tho market; tho market
would run uftor you.
A 20-ton plant would require, a
2G-h. p. bollor, two machines for
grinding or cutting up rabbits and
vegetables, -10 tray cars and 800
traps; a trommol washer tor root
crop, and a filter trnp for tho rabbit
desslcatlng machlno, Tho hides could
bo nlr dried on wires, and a slmplo
press could bo used lu baling saiuo.
A plant equipped ready for opera
tion would cost, buildings and all,
about $S00O, A working cnpltal to
pay for rabbits should bo provided.
A total capital ot $15,000, with tho
loan value tho finished product would
havo, would start a plant In flno
Kxtra Bolect and fancy rabbits In
tho Into fnll mid winter could bo
sold In tho open market in competi
tion with Belgian hares, especially
whore woll dressed, and neatly pack
ed for market display.
Tho mixed poultry food product'
should retail ou present market basU
nt 214 to 2 cents per pound, mid
tho output ot this plant should show
a retail value ot $800 to $1000 per
day for at least six mouths each
yenr. Tho cost of tho product would
depend upon what would havo to bo
paid for root crops, nlfolfu meal and
grain screenings, but tho profit will
bo enough to warrant a much largor
Ilend should havo a plant for next
fall, and tho farmers should bo pre
pared to supply two or threo thous
and tons ot root crops for tho latter
part ot August, September and Octo
bor, bo that who ntho first heavy
freezing begins lu tho fall tho plant
could start on rabbits.
