Fierce Brutes The.t Roevmed
This Section in Early Days.
In tho early days of Southern
Oregon, before tho railroad came with
its stimulus of progress and enter
prise, Grants Pass was a stage station
situated about ft milo north of the
present town Bite. This littlo valley
was a quiet one then, ranching and
stock raising boiug the principal in
dustries. Supplies wero brought iu
by freight team from Roseburg, then
the terminus of tho railroad.
In those days game was plentiful
Whenever a ranehlier wanted venison
he bad only to shoulder bis gnu and
walk a short distance into tho woods
iu any direction. There were deer in
plenty and bears, panthers and kind
red boasts wero by no menus scarce.
One of the gamest of game animals
that roved tho Southern Ongon woods
iu those days was the wild hog. The
wild bog of this section was not a
unlive; ho was simply a tamo hog run
wild, a civilized beast relapsed into
barbarism. Rut it is astonishing how
soon these liogg would lose all the
indications nud elements of domestic
ity and becomes truly wild beasts as
any of tho carnivorn whoso compan
ons they were. In obont two gener
ations of savagery, tho wild liog de
veloped into a ferocious and formidable
beast. He developed tho "raisor
hick" style, lean and bony, swift of
foot, with head and foro quarters ab
normally develoiH'd and liiudl quart
ers correspondingly shrunk away.
His form was modelled much after
the same fashinu as that of the bison
of tho plains and a flereo row of brist
les answered for a mauo and complet
ed tho effect. His overgrown muzzle
was armed with long and desperately
wicked "tushes," formidable weapons
when propelled by tho powerful nock
muscles of tho enniged beast The
wild hog was a fighter and there was
little fear iu bis composition. Ho
went his own wild way and kuew no
deviation from a courso when once his
head was set in any direction. His
upix'iiraneo proclaimed his character
and pugnucity glared from oveiy fea
ture. Sometimes the ranchers would hunt
tho wild hogs and shoot them down in
the woods liko deer. , At other times
they jvould catch tho animals, shut
them up in pens and fatten them. The
.oioratiou of capturing the ferocious
brutes was exciting, with quito a con
siderable element of danger. In those
days, onu or moro "hog dogs" wore a
necessity on every ranch. Thuso wore
sjx'cinlly trained dogs, usually, though
not always, large and jiowerful ani
mals. 1 heir work was to catch the
hogs and hold them and in this opera
tion they were wonderfully intelli
gent and proficient.
The hogs ran in droves. Their
hunters, probably two or three in
number, mounted on horseback, rodo
through tho woods, each man carry
ing with him a supply of buckskin
thongs or other strong cords or
strings. When tho grunting, squeal
ing herd was sighted, usuMly in head
long flight, tho word was given to tho
eager dog, who would rush forward,
select bis animal and seize it by the
ear. If the dog was an artist, with
prido iu his profession, ho would al
most invariably select tho biggest,
strongest und fiercest hog in tho herd.
The ear was tho hog's vulnerable
point. Seized in this manner, he
would do nothing but stand braced,
his feet, w ide apart, his neck twisted
to one side, and squeal vociferously.
The nu ll would ride up, leap from
their horses, s"i.e tho hog by the
hind logs mid tie him securely, tho
dog all tin. while holding on persist
ently to the ear. The hog was then
left helpless on the ground, while the
hunters followed the herd and re
peated the os ration until they had
as many hogs secured as they wished.
After rupturing the lings, they would
ilrivo around with a wagon and pick
them 11 i.
if by any chance the dog missed his
hold on tho ear or it was brokeu bv
the hog, 'hen let dog ami men beware.
The liog struck viciously with his
"tiislns," swinging his head from
side to side. Many a bravo "hog dog"
had loot his death from only one blow
of the tusks, blooding to death iu a
f. v minutes from a dee) and wicked
out Iu tho ue.-k or breast.
The fierceness of the wild bog was
an inborn trait. Even the little pigs,
scarcely out of babyhood, would fight
fiercely when brought into sudden
captivity and would plunge with in
fantile grunts of defiance at every
living thing in sight. Their apjsar
ance was so warlike and the "bluff"
so vehonu nt, that a man would have
to bo possessed of more than ordinary
nerve if he did not take to the fence
when charged by one of these fero
cious littlo beasts.

Towns Seeking Settlers.
Under the beading, "Strange, Isn't
It?" the Bunta Ana Horald says:
Riversldo issues a handsome pam
phlet, through its chamber of com
merce, and as a grand olimax of at
tractions to homeseekers the argu
ment states that the place has 'No
Saloons,' and. Umadd proniiuout, very
prominent; in fact, more prominent
than any other statement in the book.
Long Beach ha) just prepared copy
for an advertisement iu a prominent
Eastern book, and the most prominent
thing is that same statement, 'Long
Beiieltlius no Saloons.' Long Boitoh
puts it iu capitals. Pasadena,
Pomona, Red hinds, and our beautiful
sister city, Orange, all do the same
thing. Iu their literature to home-
seekers they bear down heavily on tho
'no saloon' feature.- They all seem
to think it is a pretty important thing
and as they have tried it for a good
many years they ought to know.
"Now, what would onr people think
about it if Banta Ana Chamber of
Commerce, iu enumerating the nuiny
advantages offered to home-seekers
here, would say, 'And Santa Ana
Has Seven Saloons,' and pat that up
as the most prominent thing in the
article? Look kind of funny.
wouldu't it? Itather doubtful about
it making any impression on lioine-
see Iters, isn't it? There is something
queer aliout that We have never
known a city or town ou earth to ad
vertise to the world that it hail eveu

It Takes Two to Make a Drunkard.
The saloon keeper is a prominent
target. It is easy to Are awayat liiin.
lie does not expert anything else.
He does not deserve much consider
ation. His business deserves noue at
The man of free and easy habits is
also fair game. His bluff and hearty
comradeship has helped many a young
man to rain. His misplaced gen
erosity lias has made the Judicious
grieve. His propensity to "treat,"
and bis willingness to be " treated, "
are hugely resjionsible for much of
the rain wrought by drink.
Heredity is a legitimate scapegoat,
many a young man has felt a fire in
his veins which was kindled In gener
ations past. Many a man has fought
a desperate battle against drink
slavery, because his father') father
was a willing bondsman of the bottle.
Hut none of these, nor all of them,
aro sufficient to make a man a drunk
ard. The saloon keeper cannot make
a sot unless some fine young fellow
furnishes the raw material. The hail-fellow-well-met
cannot line np his
admirers at the bar unless they are
willing to be there. Heredity is not
all ou the side of appetite. Oar gene
ologies go back one generation farther
than we commonly remember:

was the sou of Adam, which was the

as remember that most men become
drunkards by cousout, and that they
need not have gouo iu that way of

the great business concerns are saying,
"No driukor uood apply." It is not
sentiment but common sense, that
roles thorn. (
Why not mix a little of the same
common sense iu oar charity in deal

not a child, nor an imbecile? We
must hold him to personal account

that method witli self-willed members
of his society, though he was dealing
directly with spiritual concerns. In
summing np tho general rules he'
wroto: "If there be any among as
who observes them not, who habit
aally breuks them, let it bo known
unto them w ho watch over that soul
as they who must give an acoouut.
We will admonish liln. of the error of
his ways. We will bear with him tor
a season. Bat if then ho ropout not,
he hath no more place among us. We
have delivered our own souls."
Tho drinker should fuel more of the
iu) and ponalties of his indulgence.
To Jiet him, pity him, and lavish
sympathy ou him, while we belabor
those who aro his accomplices, is
hardly consistent.
