The second game of huso ball
played last Saturday between
Prineville and the high school
team of this city resulted in a
victory for the visiting team, but
on Sunday some of the older
players were put in the line-up
and a very interesting game was
witnessed until the rain stopped
it. The Burns boys were ahead
when the game was called, there
being but two scores on their side
up to the fifth and Prineville had
but one. On Monday another
game waa played with the older
team taking the honors away
from Prineville toa decided tune.
On Monday night a game of
basket bali was played at the
public school gym between the
Prineville team and the high

Only two kinds of birds destroy
cherry blossoms so far as observ
ed by Professor Ceorge Sykes, of
the Agricultural College, during
a seven-day investigation. These
are the California Purple-finch
and the English Sparrow.
"For seven days," savs Pro
fessor Sykes, ."every bird that
was seen in a cherry tree waa put
utider inspection. In only two
cases was there any room for
suspicion. To confirm this evid
ence some of the birds were shot
and their stomachs examined.
The birds killed and the contents
of their stomachs were as follows;
Seven California Purple-finches
cherry blossoms 1(K) per cent; one
of the same, 4 legs of Carabid.
One English Sparrow, cherry
blossoms 100 per cent.
One Pine siskin, 36 rag weed
seeds, 8 conifer seeds, and grit
20 per cent
One Blue bird, beetle fragments
100 per cent.
One Flicker, wood boring ter
mits 50 per cent, black ants.
One Oregon Towee, beetles,
60 per cent, one clover seed,
It is thus seen that several
birds have been wrongly accused.
Robins, bluebirds, goldfinches,
pine siskins and other extremely
beneficial birds have been shot.
It seems almost proverbial that
man never knows his own luck."

It was understood in diplomatic
circles here today that Foreign
Minister Portillo y Kojus. of the
Huerta government, was the
official who had communicated
with the Spanish Ambassador
here to signify the willingness of
the Huerta government to accept
the good offices of Brazil, Argen
tina and Chile. The communica
tion waa therefore considered as
practically an official acceptance
binding on the Huerta govern
ment. Soon after Secretary Bryan in
formed President Wilson of the
advices from Mexico City that
Huerta had acceded to the pre
liminary steps in the mediation
proposals, further encouragement
in the situation came in advices
from Berlin that Germany,
France and Great Britain had
urged Huerta, through their dip
lomatic representatives in Mexico
City, to yield to the American
demands. When this was com
municated to the President, he
was greatly pleased.
