Now it's grown so bi' and fat it's features you'd not know;
We call it mutton, fine and good, for roast, or chop 01 stew,
And everybody wants some; shall wo send a piece to you?

New Oregon Code.
Tho now Oregon Code, compiled by
Judge C. B. Bellinger and W. W.
Cotton, Ims bccnjssni-d This code
M authorized by the last legislature
and hereafter will be DWd in the
courts iu tlio'plitce of codes heretofore
in dm;. One thousand copies of .the
code will bo delivered to tho secre
tary of Htuto and will be distributed
The new code is in two volumes and
comprises 18.V) jsigcs. The index in
very full and complete, far surpassing
any of the previous codes in this re
spect. The index references are to
sections instead of to panes as in pre
vious codes. Kacli section is followed
by annotation refcring to both the
Oregon KeiiortH and tho Pacific Re
porter. The general arrangement of tho code
is practically tho same as Hill's Code
of 1H!I2, so that tho change to tho new
code will cause no incouevuience. One
feature of the l'M2 code that will be
greatly appreciated is the black type
line at the head of each sectiou indi
cating the subject treated in the sec
tion. This makes it much easier for
one to find tho law ujion'any subject.
Resides tho general laws of the state
tin) code includes tho Declaration of
IndojiendcIloe, the United States and
Oregon Constitutions, with index,
the act of admission and all acts of
congress relating to the state of Orc-
Upper R.ogue River
W. W. Willits, postmaster of the
new poNtofHco of Persist, on npjier
Hogue river, was iu Mcdford Tuesday
on business matters. Mr. Willits
has great faith in the future develop
ment of the upper Kogua river valley,
lie holding that the time will come
when that valley will contain a popu
lation greater than any other ono sec
tion of Jackson county. Ho says the
soil, is deep and rich, the country well
watered with springs and creeks, a
line grass region, and for fruit ho is
sure it will become the banner (lis
trict of southern Oregon, tho soil and
climate conditions being perfect for
tho production of absolutely faultless
fruit. In proof of this assertion ri).
garding fruit ho states that both lie
and his neighbors havo bearing trees
that havo never failed to yield a crop
and to bear fruit of a color and quan
tity not to be found in the orchards
of the lower altitudes. With a rail
road up Rnguo river tho valley woujd
become onu of the garden sjiofs of Ore

Secretary Hitchcock has devised a
means whereby ho believs the forost

Government luxury, as is charged by
some publin men, will beepmo self
sustaining. He today sent to congress
the draft of Ji bill, authorizing the
secretary of the interior to sell tim
ber, grass, plants, fruits, seeds and
other material growing or being grown
upon forest reserves, including stono,
earth and all other inorganic material,
at what shall be deemed a fair price,
provided such sales do not interfere
with the present mining laws and
regulations in any reservation, or
with the present practice of selling
forest reserve timber.
The bill also authorizes the "secre
tary to rent or lease lauds within the
reserves for the purpose of erecting
and maintaining summer resorts,
stores, mills and other establishments,
aud to leaso suitablo reserve land for
grazing'nnd otln-rpurpos s noMncom
patiblo witlitluT'objectsj'for which
reserves are created.
The moneys derived from such'sales,
rentals and leases are to create a
special fund to be expended in the
caro and protection of forest reserves.
Each state is to have a separate fund.
Wherever there shall bo a surplus,
215 per cent of that surplus is to go to
tho school fnud of the state or terri
tory in which tho reserve is located.
Where a reservation lies in more than
one stato, the surplus is to bo proiwr-
This bill contemplates placing forest
reserves on a higher plane than at
present, making them moie like the
Yellowstone and other National
pari:. While the bill is not such as
to meet much, opposition in congress,
there is little chance of its passage at
tho short session. Oregonian.
