y moved to the range country with
no grrat losses, and is now doing
well on the young grass. Such as
was kept in the valley were mostly
those needed for domestic purposes,
and the owners have plenty^of feed
for them.
One of the largest owners in the
countv stated that losses in sheep
were considerable, but not at all
panicy. For himself he said he
had suffered no greater loss than
the noi mal, among the flocks which
he kept at home and run for him­
self. But among those that were
leased, the persons who run them
had gone short on hay, and he
thought the loss would foot up be­
tween 2000 and 3CMX) head.
Ex-Sherriff Newt Livingston re
ported the situation bad in his sec­
tion of country, on the Middle
Fork, and told all the aspiring
candidates who asked for delegates,
to give them hay, and they would
get them faster than in any other
way. A good many herds had
been turned out on the hills, and
considerable loss had issued. lie
believed that the worst was oveJ,
and looked for a steady imprw-
ment.
Along the John Day valley, and
especially in the upper .section, the
loss was no greater than it gener­
ally is, which is only nominal, ac­
cording to J. 15. Johnson.
Mr.
Johnson thinks the practice of nut­
ting up enough hay to tide the
range animals over such season as
this has been, is by far the best one.
Izee raisers have continued to
get off lucky, as both hay and rante
were'resorted to. So that all over
the county the grave danger which
so seriously menaced the livestock
interests has apparently passed
with the minimum harm.—Grant

dy plants will be tested thoroughly
in this county this season.
It is claimed for teosinte that it
grows on the most arid land with­
out irrigation, and produces a heavy
crop of coarse feedstuff, 'which has
proved to be very nutrious, for both
fat producing and milk making.
It grows in the North Yakima dis­
trict abundantly, where experi­
ments have been carried on for sev­
eral years, and is naturally adapt­
ed to the hilly, sandy soil found in
the northern and western portions
of Umatilla county.
Many homesteaders in the vicini­
ty of the Columbia river on the
northern border of Umatilla coun­
ty are going to experiment with all
the hay-land crops possible in
hopes of finding something that
will produce a good crop of forage,
without irrigation, as there is a
large area there that cannot be ir­
rigated, and is not suited to wheat.
