POISON FARM PESTS
SAGE RAT AND GOPHER
Suggestion in Rural Spirit Bring Local
Rodents to Mind and The Urgent
Necessity of War on Them. Since
Rabbits are Disappearing This Men
ace to Crops Should Have Attention
The loss to crop grower from
depredations of squirrels and
gophers is vastly greater than
one would believo. Grain by
grain these countless little out
laws every year levy their toll on
industry just as do thieves in
commerce. Birds have been ar
raigned time and again for ruth
less destruction of fruit and of
gathering grain from the fields,
but in late years, evidence has
been presented that these faith
ful songsters through their vora
cious apetite for hugs and worms
more than offset the less they in
flict to field and tree. The squir
rels and gophers, however, have
no defense. They feed fat and
sleek on seed which is supposed
to yield "an hundred fold."
Bad as these pests are in the
rain belt, in the irrigation dis
tricts the squirrels and gopberi
are joined by the mole in nol
only thinning the stand of crops,
but destruction of irrigation
works is likewise charged up to
them. One little scrub gopher,
squirrel or muskrat may di;: a
hole that will release the water
of a reservoir and ruin an entire
farming district, or they may
cause a ditch to break and dam
age crops through shortagt- "f
water. They are particularly a
nuisance in every field where ir
rigation is practiced by the cor
rugated system. A corrugat on
is made to carry a certain quanti
ty of water. The gopher diverts
the water from one corru
to another, which overflows and
breaks every corrugation down
the side of the hill and much
lime is lost repairing the damage.
The H-sky little rodents multi
ply and increase with remarka
ble rapidity and breed at a .cry
early age so that if no warfare is
waged against them they become
8 sou re- ' :' loss varying from a
few i' ;!- thousand-, depend
ing on the lite "i ill" fields. A
winter like the one now prevail
ing is ideal for the propagation
of the squirrel and gopher colony,

take their toll. Of all years when
loss of tins kind should be pro
vided against, it is this good year

The time to do eff ctive work
against these natural enemies is
right now. The investment of a
little money in poisoned grain
will pay remarkable dividends

LTEST DEVELOPMENT LEAGUE NOTES
(Hi 'in Oar Portland Cur respondeat)
Dates have been set and plans
are well under way for a tremen
dous celebration, extending over
an entire week, on the comple
tion of the Celilo Canal and the
opening of that splendid project
for the extension of rivr traffic.
l'n .-..dent Wilson has been invit
ed to attend, also Admiral Dewey.
Congress has passed an act au
thorizing the attendance of tan e
bona ton ami nine representatives
at the beginning Of the festivi
ties, May Oth.
A part of the preliminary plan
is to have the people at Astoria
and other lower river points,
charters steamer for the entire
round triii, proceed up the river
clear through to Lewiston, pick
ing up participants in the cele
bration at all river points. It is
believed that a very attractive
rate can be secured.
Commencing March 1, seven
tons of acclimated seed corn will
tie distributed among farmers in
tie- territory served by the O.-W.
R. & N. railroad by c. L Smith,
the company's farmer. It is 1 1 1 -intention
to .-ee that each farmer
ivc iveS enough seed to plant at
least two acres, which will t-n-
nble him to prove to his own sat
isfaction that it can be made a
success. The high price of wheat
making impossible the use of
that grain for stock feed, a
grenter acreage of corn will be
planted next spring than ever
before and special efforts, will be
make to preserve the fodder to
take the place of hay in feeding
A trail from the Columbia to
the summit of Larch Mountain is
to be built by the co-operation of
the Portland Ad. Club, the Pro
gressive Business Men's Club,
the Mazamas and other civic or
ganizations. It will not be avail
able for automobiles, but Will
make it easy to climb the moun
tain on foot or horseback.
It is stated that in th Willam
ette Valley many farmers are
plowing up clover fields, and even
clearing up brush lands, for the
purpose of increasing their
M heat acreage, indicating that
the coming season will see the
biggest grain crop ever turned
out in Western Oregon.
Governor Wythycombe has it -sued
a proclamation setting aside
Friday, March, 12. as "Canned
Salmon Day", and urging the
people of the state to use as
much as possible of that food on
Cattlemen Like The
New Branding Law
Some 400 prominent range
stockmen of the Northwest were
present last week at l'rineville.
when the Cattle and Horse
Kaisers' Associations opened its
The passage of the uniform
branding bill by the legislature
is the source of satisfaction to
the cattle men of Kastern Orejron,
who used all possible influence to
push it through. It was originat
ed by the Cattle and horse
Raisers' Association. The fea
ture giving the inspectors the
power of sheriff in making ar- J
rests is one that will be very ef
fective, as any effort to break
the law when cattle are driven
from one county to another can
l.c halted at once by the inspec
tor, who wilt be the appointee of
tiie Governor in the recommen
dation of the association. The
recording of the brands with
tie stat" veterinary, and doing
sway with duplication of brands,
will Ik' a great protection to the
shippers at the Portland stock
yards, where stolen cattle can be
del. cti d at once.
How to Prevent Bilious Attack.
"Corning events cast their
shadows before." This is espec
ially true of bilious at tacks. Your
appetite will fail, you will feel
dull and languid. If you are!
subject to bilious attacks take
three of Chamberlain's Tablets
as soon as these symptoms ap
pear and the attack may be ward
ed off. For sale by all dealers.

SHOOTING ON BORDER
THIS AND LAKE COUNTY
Feud Over Mixing of Sheep Results in
Lake County Man Getting Hurt.
Question Whether Trouble Occurs
In Harney or Lake County. Man
Who Did Shooting Under Bonds
A HhootinK affray between two
Hheeprnen occurred recently and J
it has not vet been determined
whether it was in Lake or Har
ney county. The principals went
ho Lakeview. however, nnd
Sheriff Goodman was notified, '
but since the man who did the
shooting, John O'Keoffe, has fur
nished bonds to the authorities
of Lake county Qnd signified his
willingness to come here if it is
found to have taken place in this-,
county, SherifT Goodman will not '
iro after him at present.
The latest advice on the mat- j
ter is to the effect that surveyors j
were going out from Lakeview
to determine the line and ascer
tain whether it was in this or,
