a largo number of Shorthorn

"The Shorthorn sale was very

Suggest a Law Regulat
ing Stock Grazing Limit
Some of the stockmen of this
section have suggested that a
range limit should be placed upon
neap in this county and that the
matter be brought before the
coaling session of the legislature.
The Times-Herald does not
know just how such a matter is
disposed of but was under the j
impression there was such a law
in this state that covered the en
tire state. However, it has been
staUd to the writer that each,
county has a regulation of its
own. For instance, he says that j
Malheur county has a two-mile
limit. It would seem that such a j
law should and would apply all
over the state. It is possible he j

to him as well as to the man who
runs other Btock.
The Times-Herald suggests
that the stock association of this
county take the matter up and
make recommendations to our
representative in the legislature.

MOTION OVERRULED IN

Judge Biggs Finds for State in The Cue
Involving Title lo 27,000 Acres in The
"Red S" Field-Has a Back H s'ory
Judge Dalton Biggs of the cir

rendered a decision in the case
wherein the state brought suit
against the Pacific Live Stock
Co. to recover lands in this Val
ley. The land involved cover
approximately 27, (XX) acres and
are situated in what is known as
the Red S Held.
Title to this land was obtained
many years ago under the indent
nity school, state school and
swamp land laws. It is claimed
in the complaint that the land
was secured through fraud and
the suit is to recover the lands to
fie slate. The case was started
early in the summer and can e
before Judge Biggs at the Octo
ber term of court here when the
defendants filed demurrer which
was argued and taken under ad-
viscment to be decided in cham-
Judge Biggs has overruled the
demurrer and has given the de

to the state and while the matter

of what comes of it there it will
go to the higher courts.

This treatment has never failed
when the victim has presented
himself in time. The treatment
is not painful or causes any dis

begin immediately atter the vic-

week or ten days. One who has
