Canadians Tackle the Job of
Keeping Animals In
Ottawa. Unt. Herding duuo rein
deer from : Alaska to 15,000 square
miles of grazing grounds in the
northwest territory is one job tackled
by Canada's department of the in

summer, will be completed some time
in 1931, and the reindeer will travel
about 1000 miles to reach their new
Early in June A. E. Porsild of the

branch of the department started for
James bay, where he will survey the
wild life of Charlton and Akimiski
islands and the nearby coast. On his
return, says a recent release from the
department of development and colon
ization of the Canadian Pacific rail
way, he will select 3000 of the most
virile Alaska reindeer for the depart
ment of the interior.
About October these animals will
be started on the long, trail along the
northern coast of Alaska to the 15,
000 square miles of grazing grounds
east of the Mackenzie delta. The big
herd is expected to reach the grazing
grounds between Point Barrow and
the Colville river in the spring of
19C0, and will remain here while

Emigrant Wagon That
Crossed Plains in 1850
Is Now Highly Prized
Eugene. A genuine "linch-pin"
wagon, one that actually crossed the
plains in 1850, has been discovered by
Cal M. Young of Eugene, and the
vehicle, which is still sturdy and
ready for any kind of use, will be
preserved as a relic of early Oregon
days. Mr. Young, who was chairman
of the pioneer parade that attracted
state-wide attention during the recent

The wrgon, so far as known, is the
only one in existence" today that came
across the plains in a wagon train.
It was found on the old Love place,
near Wilbur, and was given to Mr.
Young by Rodney Easley, owner, to
whom it had been given some time
The wagon was driven across the
plains by Dr. Calvin C. Reed, who
left Jones county, Iowa, in 1850. He
settled near Wilbur and erected the
first grist mill in the north Umpqua
region. One of his daughters, now
Mrs. W. G. Hill, was born in this
wagon, or a similar one in the train,
on the old Barlow road near Mount
Hood, October 2, 1850. Mrs. Hill is
still active, and positively identified
the wagon as one in the train.
The historic wagon now has an or
dinary bed, which replaced the old
"prairie schooner" of plains days.
This wagon, or one of the others in
the train that crossed in 1850, was
fitted up with a boatl for a bed, which
was used in fording streams. Mr.
Young plans to replace the present
bed with a boat and will make the
vehicle regain, as nearly as possible,
its old appearance.
The wagon derives its name, "linch
pin," from the fact that wheels are
fastened onto the axles by steel pins
set outside the hub, in place of the
more modern locknuts.
When displaying the wagon, Mr.
Young hooks up a team of oxen which
he himself has broken to drive. The
vehicle was recently photographed
with Mr. Young driving. His son
Ford and daughter Brandon, Miss
Barbara Barker, granddaughter of
Oregon pioneers and daughters of
Burt Brown Barker, vice-president of
the University of Oregon, and Miss
Adelaide Church, granddaughter of
pioneers, were passengers.

James H. McCool, writer of "Wild
Life Lines" in the Morning Oregon
ian, recently visited this section of
the Inland Empire, and met up with
the sons of Mr. and Mrs. L. R. Mc
Ewen, who reside on a wheat ranch,
northwest of Athena. Returning to
Portland, Mr. McCool wrote for his
"Wild Life Lines" column his impres
sion of the boys, as follows:
In the week-end preceding Labor
day I made a trip up 'through the
Blue mountain ' country in eastern
Washington and Oregon. While pass
ing through Walla Walla, in days
gone by an outfitting point for min
ers, trappers and Indian fighters, I
met two boys ; one 8, the other 10,
who had just performed what I con
sider an epic feat.
The boys live on a farm in the
foothills of the Blue mountains, about
14 miles from1 the Spokane-Pendleton
highway, which passes through Walla
Walla. They own two fleet Shetland
ponies, and decided to enter their
mounts in the pony races at the Walla
Walla fair. So they saddled their
little nags on a Sunday morning and
accompanied by Spot, the fox terrier,
started on a ride of 35 miles. Out of
the hills they galloped, with the lit
tle dog making playful dashes down
the sides of canyons to chase coyotes
or flush bands of Hungarian and
The boys are Hugh and Don Mc
Ewen Hugh is the elder. He was
rigged out cowboy fashion with
bright purple shirt, gaily hued neck
erchief, home-made "chaps," "four
gallon" hat, wild west boots and
spurs. The boots were his particular
pride, having been a present from
Rich .Thompson, one of the best-
known sponsors of Pendleton's cele
brated Round-Up. They cost $27 and
were presented to Hugh 'in recogni
tion of his riding prowess.
Little Don wasn t as lucky as his
older brother. He managed to ride
along though, in overalls and low
shoes, and his horsemanship was no
whit affected by the absence of head
gear or riding boots and spurs. The
two young horsemen dodged a stream
of automobiles on the highway and
made the long trip in five hours, an
average of seven miles an hour.
"Wasn't it hard work for the horses
on the pavement?" I asked. "Didn't
you have any accidents?"
"No, we didn't" grinned Don, "but
Spot was run over three times, and
danged if he didn't get the same foot
hurt every time."
After the boys got to Walla Walla
they went to the fair grounds and
got jobs helping unload stock from
box cars. They worked till nearly
midnight and for their reward they
were satisfied to have their ponies
entered in the races without payment
of entrance fees.
The first prize in one pony race
was $100 and in another it was $50
When I left them the little fellows
were in high hopes that they would
win one or both of the races.
"But if we don't win anything,"
said Hugh, "we won't be out any
thing, as we stay at our grand
father's ranch and we still have our
ponies to ride back home."
The McEwen boys go to a country
school and all last winter in the cold
est and stormiest weather they had to
ride nine miles and back every day.
It can be stated that the rugged lit
tle riders have "won their spurs." .

The State Fair Horse
Show Prize List Money
Is Enlarged to $8,500
Salem. With the arrival of . V.
Fleming, manager, from Crlifoiaia,
plans for the Oregon state fair horse
show, September 23 to 28, are being
rounded up for the largest show in
the history of the fair. ';;'..
This year marks . a definite step
forward in the history of the show,
as the classification list calls for dou
ble the amount of money distributed
in previous years and a great in
crease in stakes, calling for a total
of $8500. This raises Salem into ,the
class of major horse-show engage
ments where the best horses in the
country can afford to congregate and
contest for an amount of prize money,
that will pay them for the trip. :
Mr. Fleming has just finished a
strenuous month as manager of the
Palo Alto and San Joaquin county
horse shows, and is all ready to jump
into action on the capital-city show.
He has arranged a special train on a
36-hour schedule to leave Pomona on
the closing day of that horse show,
and it will arrive in Salem the day
before the first, performance here,
with a precious cargo of fine horses.
Conditions of showing at the state
fair are excellent, all stalls being in
the same building, on tha level of the
arena. The grounds are in a beau
tiful natural site covered with live
oaks. The new $150,000 grandstand
and exhibit building will attract
many new visitors, and the exhibits
are expected to excel those of pre
vious years, according to Mrs. Ella S.
Wilson, secretary of the fair board.
A. C. Shumway, Milton, is director
of the horse show and horse division
and, with Mrs. Wilson and Mr. Flem
ing, Is. working hard to make this
year's show the best ever held here,
and all indications point to success) of
an astonishing degree.
Arrested for Possession
C. Anderson, a sheep herder, was
fined $250 and costs in the courts of
Clackamas county last week for hav
ing deer meat in his possession. .The
state game department is keeping
watch of a number of sheep camps
where reports have been made that
deer is being used for .food in viola
tion of the lawj . "When the offenders
are caught and punished they regret
that they did not kill one of their
flock," said a game warden. "It
would be less expensive."
Will Release Trout
The two large city park nonds at
Walla Walla are being flushed out
and cleaned in preparation for the re
lease of 300,000 rainbow trout. The
trout will be taken out of the small
er pools and released in the bigger
ones and will remain there until the
close of the fishing season when they
will be placed in the streams around
Walla Walla. .
