Livestock Company, which bas such ex
tensive land and cattle interests in
Southeastern Oregon, to dig a large
ditch and drain some 06,000 scies of
land known as ths Blitien Swamp, I
Harney County. F, C. Lusk, the . gen
eral manager of the company, wbo has
headquarters at Chico, Cal., says the
ditch will follow the course of the
Donner and Blitzen river for a distance
of some 30 aiiles. It is expected that
the work will cost the company at least
(50,000; but when dug the ditch will
drain an ana 23 miles long by seven miles
wide, and the whole of it will be rich
grazing and hay land. It is the inten
Hon to follow the general course of the
river in ths construction of ths work
and the estimate is made that it will
take two years to dig the ditch.

water right of tbe first clsss snd runs
steadily from the time of the first rains
until late in the summer. Only a slight
raise in the waters of Galice creek is
necessary to furnish this mine with
water for operation. The site selected
(or this winter's operations is on the
east side o( Galice creek about halt a
mile below the forks. This ground was
opened several years sgo and was work
ed with good results, ths ground proving
very rich, but the operations were ham
pered on account of Insufficient dump.
The bed of Cilice creek is filled with de
bris and tailings from the old workings

During the past few years, a great deal of
this debris has lJn swept away by

particular point has been lowered some
25 feet, making a dump of about 35 feet,

Electrocuting an Elephant.
The following account is given of an
attempt to electrocute su elephant at
Buffalo: Harnessed with electrodes
and other apt urulus, Jumbo II stood in
the middle of the stadium at the Expo
sition grounds at sundown today and
gave the world a practical demonstration
that an elephant can take 2200 volts
of electricity with apparent unconcern.
Whether from defective connection or
from insufficient current, when the
switch that was supposed to t'irn the
death flood of electricity into the
elephant's body was turned on, Jumbo
merely threw a tiunklul of dirt over his
hack and refused to die. If ths electric
current reached him at all he did not
express a bit o! annoyance.
Electric wires had been run fiotn the
exH,aition power Iiouko to whut was to
be JuiiiIhi's death platform, and when
tho signal " given 22 K) volta were
turned ou It merely tickled tho beast.
Alter the unsuccessful attempt to kill
him, Jumbo was unhitched Irotn hit
harness and taken back to his home in
Explanations made by the dei tricians
for the failure were that Jumbo's hide
had the resistance of rubber and that
this formed a lion conductor impervious
to tlectricity. Others declare that if it
taki 1WW volta to kill a man it would
necessarily take more tbsn 2200 volts to
kill an elephant.
Jumbo was chained to a plank plat
form. Electrodes the e: of s large
sponge were placed behind his ears and
at the end of the spinal column. Only
2200 volts had been provided for by
those in charge. The shock was re
pealed six times. Jumbo wattged his
tail, tore up a plank wilh his trunk,
looked pleased and trumpeted a bit.
The shocks had simply tickled him.
