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.

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. —East Oregonian.
