I am writing this letter in a
spirit of captious levity, but New
York City and other Eastern
cities are arreatly 'congested' with

actively engaged in tying up the

last 10 years. Thousands and
thousands of acres of agricultural
lands are in the reserves, and as
a practical proposition are not
open to settlement.
"While the la technically
permits settlement, the operation

such as wholly to discourage peo-

A higher steer market has

Thin sduy, with several loads
from Stan field and cho going at

supply throughout the country is
limited and a steady market is
looked for. There was a fine
butcher trade, but demand ex

bulls and calves, so cows sold up
to $7.40 and heifers $7.75 and
bulls $0.00 and $5.25, showing
the strengh of the market.
Hogs continue strong, while

early part of the week, but Uot

Captain Louey Reminiscent.
Capt. Louey, the old Piute In
dian, was calling on the writer
the other morning and asked the
cause of the great flood and
storms that recently devastated
such a big tx-rritory in the middle
west. He talked of the old In
dian story of conditions in this
territory long before the white
man ever ventured this far west.
He says the Indian story is to the
effect that Harney Valley was
once a vast lake and nothing but
the high mountains were visible.
The earth got mad and a great
upheavel was the result and in
this manner the lake was drained
the grass begun to grow and
finally it becamo tho home of his
people. It is said that once after j
the Indians were here the snow '
fell to tho depth of eight feet in

After all the sub-stations, co-

Station had been a'lowed seed,
there remained small quantities
of several varieties of oats and
barley and some emmer, enough
in all to plant ten or fifteen acres.
This seed has been placed with
Dr. Hibbard and will be sown on
his farm just north of Burns.
Dr. Hibbard agrees to sell the
crop to the Experiment Station
for ordinary prices for grain this
fall after harvest. In this way
considerable seed of these known
to be good varieties will be avail
able for sale to those of Harney
County's farmers who wish to
avail themselves of the oppor
