STILL ON THE BORDEK
We are still on the border.
"We," in this case, refers to the
State of Oregon, typically con
cerned. In the Eastern, Central
and Southern part of the state,
there is plenty of range left and
the spirit of the range abounds,
not excluding that phase of it
which runs into lawlessness.
We have in mind the report from
Burns, which runs to Jthe effect
that the stockmen of that section
have found it expedient to or
ganize for the protection of their
stock against the depredations of
horsethioves. There is nothing
at all remarkable in such an or
ganization, except that one can
not help being impressed with
such news as orginating in the
same communities wherein the
activities of so splend and so
modern a city arc in evidence.
Reading a news story of this
sort on the streets or in the
lobbies of a city like this seems
like perusing the record of life
in a community far removed - a
borderland that indeed is distant
in time as well as miles. But
the truth and comparative conti
guity of it only bring to mind
how closely progress crowds up
on the more primitive conditions
It affords a more impressive con
ception of the things we are do
ing in Oregon and the manner in
which we do them. Cities of
skyscrappers on one side of the
state, while the inhabitants of
the other side are organizing to
enforce the law of the range.
It is a remarkable contrast if
one stops to think about it, but
thoroughly typical of the present
status of the American We.st.

made in the law relating to the
number of ducks that mny bo

Plants That Hold Water
Getting Winter Eggs
In the deserts, where water is
scarce or entirely absent, there
are a number of plants that suc
ceed in estiiblisbintr thomsnlvps
by storing up water. In the
summer they looK like a bundle
of sticks and they seem leafless,
but when tho rains come the
leaves become filled with water
and expand considerably. The
leaves of some of these plants
have the appearance of stuffed
pillows. The stem shoots up,
then the flower comes and at
last they fade and the seed ripens
Little by little the supply of
water gives out, and in time the
plant looks like withered sticks
Other trees store water in their
roots. This also is the case with
a tree that looks very much like
an oak as tar as its foliage is
concerned, but which has a
bright orange flower. Tho Abor-

why? Well, in the first place
writes a New York man in Rural
Life, they have got tho stock to
work with. Nearly all of these
big winter eggs records in this
country are made .with early
hatched pullets, those hatched in
March or first of April. "It's
the early bird that catches the
worm." They must be of good
thrifty stock, and of a laying
A good many fail in growing
the pullets, they are just allowed
to come up. Then there is some
thing in tho breed. The right
kind to have is one that can
stand the cold climate. Leghorns
and Minorcas are great spring
and summer layers when eggs
are cheap and plenty and thcro
are some other breeds the same
way. Leghorns are certainly
great egg producers, but you
must have the proper accommoda
tions for them as they are not
going to lay very many eggs
during severe cold weather, and
