J. D. Farrell, president of the
O.-VV. R. & N., spent several
hours in Vale Monday on his re
turn trip over the Oregon Eastern
to Riverside.
Mr. Farrel expressed himself
as much pleased with the new
road. The company has placed
the Riverside townsite on the
market, but not for the purpose
of speculation or profit. They
will dispose of lots to those who
will make immediate use of them
by building on them at once.
They have leased to a large
Vale concern such ground as
they desire to erect a warehouse
from which the dealers may de
liver goods to their interior cus
tomers in the original package.
This arrangement will enable the
Vale dealers to reach that much
greater distance into the inter
ior through the parcel post
The company intend that their
disposal of property will be of
use in the creation of traffic for
the new road and that such dis
posal will be of benefit to the en
tire country beyond the present
terminus at Riverside.
Mr. F. W. Moore will remain
at Riverside in charge of the
property and will be on hand for
consultation at all times.
The opening of- this townsite
and the completion of the bridges
to Riverside is an indication of
resumed activity in Malheur and
will give hope to waiting citizens
that the road will soon be com
pletcd into the grain producing
regions of Harney. --Vale Enterprise.

It is evident that the game laws
are to be generally revised at the
forthcoming session of the Legis
lature, for in numerous instances
they are in conflict with the Fed
eral statutes. Not only in that
instance will they be revised, but
the limit in the number of birds
killed or trout caught, as well as
in other minor matters, are those
likely to be changed. At the
risk of raising a prolonged howl
among the game conservationists
the Examiner is decidedly of the
opinion that the law prohibiting
the killing of does and fawns
should be repealed. Probably no
other animal is so well able to
protect itself from the hunter as
a spotted fawn, and while no
hunter will voluntarily kill one,
yet without doubt many are kill
ed each year. It is a well known
fact among hunters that does are
frequently killed, being mistaken
for bucks. It is a very difficult
matter for a hunter to distin
guish a doe from a buck at a dis
tance of 75 to 100 yards if the
animal is standing or running in
the brush.
Under the present law any one
killing a doe will as a matter of
course protect himself, either by
making "jerky" of the meat, If
he considers himself safe from
discovery, or else let the carcass
remain where it fell. He will
still have his three bucks, and in
so doing perhaps kill two or three
more does and possibly a fawn
or two, at the same time being
confident that he is shooting at a
buck every time.
The only way to protect the
deer is to shorten the season or
1 mit the number killed, regard,
less of sex or age. No hunter
wants to kill a doe or fawn at
any time, and when he does it is
generally through being mistak
en in the looks of the animal, if
the limit is too great, cut it down,
but compel the hunter to tag
every deer he kills. - Lakeview
will render it entirely safe. Hu
man beings who do get the dis
ease commonly get it from direct
contact with a sick animal. It is
wisest, therefore, for people to
keep away from all animals hav
ing the disease unless they are
properly provided with rubber
gloves, coats und boots, and
these are thoroughly disinfected
after each visit to the animals.
In the case of meat, as in the
case of milk., it must be remen -
bered that all herds which actual
ly show the disease are tiuaran
lined, and neither milk or meat
from the sick animals can be
sold. Sixty per cent of meat used
in this country is produced in the
nearly IKX) federally inspected
slaughtering and packing estab
lishments located in 240 cities.
In these establishments no ani
mal is slaughtered until it has
passed an anti-mortem insection
and also a most rigid post-mortem
inspection by n veterinarian
at time of slaughter. A I in
slaughter its moats can not leave
the establishment until it has
been carefully examined and
stamped "II. S. Inspected and
Passed." In all these establish
ments no animal showing any
symptoms whatever of foot-and-mouth
disease is allowed to go to
slaughter, and no meat which, on
post-mortem inspection, shows
any suspicious symptoms of this
complaint can be shipped out of
the establishment. All meat sus
pected of coming from an animal
suffering with this complaint is
sent, under Government seal, to
the tanks to be rendered into
fertilizer. The Federal Inapeo-
tion stamp on meat, therefore,
means that it is entirely safe.
The Federal Government, how
ever, has no jurisdiction over
local slaughter houses which do
not ship meat outside of the state
in which it is slaughtered. If,
however, meat from such an ani
mal did escape from one of these
local slaughter houses, which are
purely under State or municipal
control, all danger of its commu
nicating the disease to human
beings would be removed when
it is. thoroughly cooked and steril
ised. Those who are located
near an infected region and wish
to be absolutely certain of the
safety of their meat should cook
it thoroughly.
The disease when contracted
by adults is not at all a serious
illness. It commonly takes the
form of slight fever sores in tho
mouth und a slight eruption on
the lingers. In the case of small
or sickly children it may take a
more serious- form, especially if
complicated by other illnesses.

Group two of the "Ladies'
Library Club, met at the home
of Mrs. Hen Brown last Saturday
to complete their part of the pro
gram for the year.
The subject being "Wit and
Humor" the ladies responded to
tho roll call, with a new and up-to-date
humorous story.
The first number on the pro
gram, was a paper, by Mrs.
Kelly, on the famous English
humorists; finishing with a selec
tion on babies, by Jerome K.
Jerome; this afforded a great
deal of amusement, as it was
supplemented occasionally with
some of Mrs. Kelley's own origi
nal wit.
Mrs. McHcee, sang two, well
chosen selections, entitled "Phil
osophy", und "My First Love"
which was very much appreciat
ed by every one present.
Mrs. Hen Brown read very in
teresting biographies of the fa
mous American Humorists.
The closing number was an ex
tremely "laughable" song on the
victrola, sung by Harry Lauder
entitled, "Stop Your Tickling
The name of this song caused
some of the more mirthful ones
to smile, but by the time the
song was ended it was difficult to
discern where the most laughter

Amendment of Torrens Land Registra

three measures designed to secure
better rural credit facilities re
ceiving favorable consideration
at the first meeting of the rural
credits commission recently ap
pointed by Governor West. The
session was held at Salem on
November 24 and was organized
by electing Dr. Hector Macpher

and to supply short-term credits.
It was pointed out that a number
of states already have similar
laws, notably Massachusetts,
Wisconsin, New York, and Texas.
A Btudy of these laws will be the
basis of further action at the
next session of the commission.
The membership of the com
mission is as follews: Dr. Hector

A general discussion of the en
tire subject of rural credits was
taken up by the commission, but
only tentative conclusions were
arrived at Recommendations
concerning the defects of the
laws for the registration of land
ure unanimous, and Mr. Allen
and Mr. Garlan were appointed a
sub-committee to investigate the
defects and prepare an amend
ment that will make the law ef
fective. The mortgage credit institu
tions could best be established
and conducted under federal law,
was the sense of the commission.
The essentials of an act that
would meet the needs of the Ore
gon farmer will be worked out
and presented to the legislature
with the recommendation that
they be embodied in a memorial,
adopted by joint resolutions of
the house and the senate, and
sent to Congress with an earnest
request that there be no further
delay in enacting such legislation
as will place the American far
mer in a position to obtain credit
on terms as favorable as those
enjoyed for many generations by
European farmers.
