Caaing For The Oil WelU
Frank Shumway, the Harney
county Freighter out of Vale, left
this week with 2000 feetof 6-inch
oil-well casing, loaded in six big
wagons, for the oil fields of the
Central Oregon Oil & Gas Com
pany in Harney county. Reports
indicate that the sustained effort
of this company 's energetic mana
ger, J. C. Turney, are about to
bear fruit.
In November, Shumway frei
ghted in 1500 feet of 8-inch cas
ing, and the present shipment
indicates that there will soon be
things doing in the eastern Ore
gon oil fields. Oil indications are
strong, alike in Malheur and Har
ney counties, and it is only a
question of drilling in the right
places, say the oil men, before a
producing well will be uncovered.

New Coyote Trap.
new way for catching coyotes
around sheep camps without the
use of poisoned baits, on account
of the danger to dogs, is by the
use of steel traps and snares made
out of five gallon tin cans distri
buted over the range.
The cans have a star shaped
aperture cut in the top for a coy
ote to put his head through. The
sharp points of the star are bent
downward and a bait of bacon,
eggs, chicken or dead horse plac
ed in the bottom of the can. A
coyote puts his head in the can
and the sharp points of the star
catch in his mane and the thick
hair around his neck and he is
unable to withdraw it. It is said
that a coyote caught in this man
ner will walk backward in a cir
cle with the can on his head and
will not get far from the locality
where the snare is placed. Lake
