Dave Miller was in the other
day and says he has been doing
more or less experimenting
with poisoning rabbits and finds
it is quite effective; he finds that
he can dissolve strychnine more
readily by placing it in vinegar
and leaving it over night, as
thus it is dissolved and may at
once be mixed with gram or
whatever it is intended to bate
with. He finds even now with
plenty of green stuff that rab
bits will eat grain.

The packing plant of the Burns
Flour Milling Co., is nearing com
pletion, that is the walls are go
ing along quite satisfactorily and
the building will soon be in readi
ness to receive the machinery.
The Times-Herald la informed
that an experienced packer has
been engaged to take charge of
the plant as soon as it is ready
for operation and that they are
very highly pleased at the pros
pects as this gentleman cornea
well recommended and has had
much experience in his line.
There is no reason why Harney
County cannot produce and turn
out as good bacon, hams and lard
as any place on earth as we have
the pigs, the right feed and with
modern facilities to properly cure
the meat we can compete with
any. With more alfalfa and
field peas being grown we shall
have more pigs and a better qual
ity than in most of the big cen
ters where (lacking plants have
always been established.
