Wheat from White Land.
John Whitaker a few days ago
brought to Corvalli3 a email sheaf
of "Surprise" wheat grown on his
farm, 12 mile south ofCorvallis,
say6 the Corvallis Times. One
head contained 144 plump, well
developed grains, and the smallest
head in the theaf contained over
100 grains, and there were five or
six grains in each mesh. The
largest head in the sheaf was grown
on white land that was tilled last
January. The estimated yield of
the field which contains much
white land, is 40 bushels per acre,
and portions will yield 50 to 60
bushels. In a 40 acre field of white
land that has been cultivated for
seven years, Mr. Whitaker has 20
acres of oatr that will go 50 bush
els per acre, and 10 acres of wheat,
as good as was ever grown, on land
where wheat never filled before.
According to Mr. Whitaker, white
land thoroughly cultivated is as
good as the best black land in
Webfoot. ,

A Grain Fire.
The grain fire VVednesday after
noon, supposed at' first to be loca
ted on the - reservation east of Pen
dleton, occurred at the BlaKely
place on the north side of the Wild
Horse, below Adams. The fire
originated from the belt of' the
separator, but the machines were
saved. Forty-two acres of grain in
slack were destroyed, however,
making quite a serious loss, as it
would have averaged 40 bushels.
A brisk breeze blew, and the only
thing that stopped , the fire was a
large body of summer fallow that
luckily happened to intervene be
tween it and other grain, fields in
the direction of the wind. E. 0.

the basis prevailing last February
to go into effect as soon as practic

The receivers are the same as those
appointed in Wisconsin. They
gave bonds of $500,00 in the United
States court. The application was
made without the consent; of the
railroad company. The Northern
Pacific company was compelled to
take this step on account of the
hard times and appalling decrease
in freight and passenger traffic.
J New Game Law.
The new game law, now in
force, prohibits the sale of any part
of the deer at any time. On page
91 of the Session Laws of 1893 the
new law can be found. In refer
ence to this matter it reads : "Every
person who chall at any time after
the passage of this act, sell or offer
for sale the hde or horns or meat
of any deer, either in a fresh, Bait
ed, dried, smoked or jerked condi
tion, shall be guilty of a misde
meanor." The law also fixes a pen
alty for the violation of this act as
follows: 'Every person convicted of
a violation of any provision of this
act shall be punished by a fine of
not less han $50 nor more than
$300, or imprisonment in" the
county jail of the county where the
offense was committed for not leBP
than three months, or both such
fine and imprisonment. Half of
such money collected for fines for
violation of the provisions of this
act shall be paid to the informer,
and the rest into the county treas
ury of the county in which the of
fense was committed.' - V

The Pendleton Savings Bank.
ew feature of a closed bank's
meuiods presented itself in the
ited States court today, says the
ortland Telegram. Hon. L. B.
Oox, attorney for the receiver of
the Pendleton Savings bank, ap
peared before Judge Bellinger this
morning and asked for an order to
the effect that the receiver could
loan some of the bank's money on
hand, in order to make another
good loan. It seems that a farmer
who raises wheat on an extensive
scale owes the bank the money due
on a good sized note. He has a big
crop, avid can pay the amount when
be realizes on it: but has no money
with which to move it or pay the
hands. By this order the bank ad
vances the necessary money, and
hopes in that way to get returns
soon on the wnoie inueDieaness.
The request was granted and the
order issued. -,
Mollie Nichols Found.
Miss Mollie Nichols, about whom
there has been considerable anx

the Heppner Gazette. She was out
riding after horses and had crossed
the John Day river into Gilliam

lently from her horse and sustain
ed severe injuries, causing concus-
Bion of the brain and temporary
unconsciousness. She was found
by some parties, who kept her for
two weeks. On becoming conscious
she requested that she be taken to
Wasco, which was done last Friday.
She is now at the Reynolds house,
in Wasco, and her mother, Mrs.
Sarah Nichols, of Kalama, Wash.,

A Runaway Son's Fortune.
At the age of 12 Henry Hatch

he has had 'a bard life among the.
logging camps of Humboldt county
Columbia. Recently, he learned
accidentally of the death of his
father and that he had left a large
estate. Henry Hatchings had been
away from home 20 years, and had
not heard from his family in that
time. Ho employed Attorney A.
T. Barbette, and upon investigation
it was learned that his father had
left an estate valued at $350,000,
and had died intestate. He is at
present in this city, and expects to
go to Chicago September 1, with
his attorney, to settle up the estate.

noble red man by making a sol
dier of him has proven a flat fail
ure. It is to be hoped Hoke Smith
will succeed better in teaching him
to milk than Secretary Elkins did
in teaching him the routine of
army life. In his natural state
he is a fighter, but civilized descip
line and soap seem to eliminate the
martial instinct from his charac
ter. Desertion? have been par
ticularly numerous among the In
dian soldiers. The members of

tion, and were continually pining
to get back to, them. The experi
ment has been in progress two

Concerning Farmers.
A wheat producer of California
recently said: With the comple-1
tion of the Nicaragua canal will
come, I believe, a very marked
change in the wheat export trade, j
Sailing uhips will then not be util
zed to anything like the Bame ex
tent they are now. The trip will
be made in much shorter time by
steamer and the cargo will arrive in
better condition. At present
vessels cannot be used to advan
tage in transporting wheat, as bo
much of their room would have to
taken up for carrying en'oueh coal
to last through the long voyage
around the Horn.
Had the farmers each season
promptly sold their crops instead
of holding them for a possible rise
they would be much better off, as
the developments of the past ten
years have shown. The farmer
should not speculate, but should
imitate the course of the manufac
turer. As soon as hia goods are
ready for the market he should
dispose of them and leave the mid
dle man to gamble on the future.

Tuesday night, says the East
Oregonian. Work to rearrange the
telephone exchange on account of
office removal has been actively
pushed, and all night the. boys
were busy with their task. On
top of the telephone pole they had a
fifty-candle-power incandescent
lamp to furnish light, and while
holding this Robin connected him
self some way with an arc circuit
wire and received a tremendous
dose of electricity, rendering him
unconscious. He was tangled up
in the wire and cross beams in
such a way as to escape a full, and
finally recovered his senses; but
"Bob" will hereafter have a feeling
of sympathy for the criminal who
dies in an electric chair.

Section 4 of the laws of Oregon re

Any person or persons who shall

guilty of a misdemeanor, and upon
conviction before a court of compe
