Cracking Flames.
Medford. Hundreds of men today
were fighting forest fires in five Ore
gon counties.
Governor Meier will be asked with
in 24 hours to close several areas in
Coos county, State Forester Crone
miller said.
A series of incendiary fires in the
vicinity of Panther ridge will force
the state officials to drastic action,
Cronemiller said.
The fires are just south of Camaa
valley, in almost inaccessible terri
tory. The fire fighters have to travel
several miles on foot and pack equip
ment on burros.
Another fire in Coos county four
miles west of Bridge, which was con
trolled Monday night, broke out again
Tuesday. Eighty men are on the
scene. " -
The fire which swept through the
Humbug and Forest Creek hills near
Applegate since Sunday afternoon
was reported to be quiet Tuesday.
Flames were being held within the
bounds of trenches dug by fighters
along the 25-mile front. Foresters
are attempting to stop the flames
while there is a minimum of wind.
A partial check of property damage
shows: Jacob Bielson home, barns,
ranch buildings and all crops destroy
ed: W. M. Miller ranch, owned by J.
B. Andrews, house, barns, hay and
other crops lost; Ralph Pittock, barn,
hay and crops in field burned; Aaron
Hanson, crops and barns burned;
fences and other improvements on all
ranches in distric. .
Complete check of the damage is
still impossible. All bridges leading
inn 4-I.a TTii m 1 ! i- v i i I" imro
burned by the flames, making it im
possible to reach the area by car.
Stories of heroism and tragedy are
told by persons who fled. Mrs. W. M.
Miller was at home alone when the
first warning of the fire came. She
was ill and had only time to dress
herself and flee for her life. Mrs. Mil
ler said the flames wiped out every
bit of their personal property in ad
dition to the corps and buildings on
the farm. The Millers had just spent
their last cent for groceries which
were on fh& porch and were burned.
Miller was in Grants Pass seeking
employment when the fire spread over
the country.
At the Pittock ranch only the chil
dren were at home. When the flames
neared their property one of the small
boys rounded up the stock and started
driving them toward the Applegate
valley below. Regina, 15, loaded some
personal belongings into the family
car and attempted to leave the coun
try. Never having driven before, she
encountered considerable difficulty in
the form of numerous trees, rocks and
banks. Miss Pittock had driven the
car across a log and was stalled when
firefighters rescued her. ,
Forty-fire head of sheep burned
Were from the Herman Walters
ranch. Eighteen belong to Ralph Pit
tock. Other stock' in the hills is
known to have perished in the flames.
A terrific explosion occurred when
a fire burned into 200 pounds of
giant powder and 50 pounds of quick
silver stored in the Miller house. The
building was blown to bits and started
many more fires. Fighters were still
battling the flames on the Herman
Walters place Tuesday.

the following information for publica
The limit of weight for fourth-
class or parcel-post mail for the
fourth, fifth, sixth, seventh and eighth

limit uniform for all zones; and the
limit of size, of parcels for all zones
is increased from 84 inches to 100
inches in length and girth combined.
The minimum postage charge on a
parcel measuring more than 84 inches
but not more than 100 inches in

pounds or more, which measure more
than 84 inches but not more than 100
inches in length and girth combined,
the regular zone pound rates apply.
Postmasters are requested to give
the widest possible publicity to the
foregoing modifications whicn nave

Pacific International
Livestock Exposition
The Premium List of the .Twenty
first Annual Pacific International
Livestock Exposition, to be held in
Portland, October 24 to 31 inclusive
is now being distributed. Copies may
be had from General Manager 0. M.
Plummer, 211 American Bank Build
ing, Portland, Oregon.
The Pacific International hopes to
live up to "Hs motto, "Bigger and
Better" in every way. Breeders and
exhibitors are showing a splendid
spirit this early in promising most
active -support and already many
counties are organizing groups to at
tend the exposition in a body.
This great livestock university of
the Pacific slope country has become
a part of agriculture in its very best
sense and has rooted deep in the
hearts of the people of this great
Western empire with the result that
each year shows friendly attendance
and a better understanding of its
value ,to this great country.
Transportation lines everywhere
are making a reduced rate for the
round trip and exhibit stock is handl
ed free one way. Early inquiries
should be made of railroad agents in
your home town to get particulars of
selling dates and other pertinent information.
The farm board has called upon
southern planters to destroy one
third of their crop now under culti
vation, promising in return to hold i,
stabilization surplus stocks from the
market for one year.
Telegrams were dispatched to the
governors of 14 cotton-producing
states urging them to enlist the co
operation of every availabl agency,
including farmers and bankers, in this
step to increase the low price of cot
ton. They were signed by Chairman
Stone, who conferred with directors
of the cotton stabilization corpora
tion and the American Cotton Co
operative association. Stone said. if
growers promised to plow under every
third row of cotton now growing, the
cotton co-operative would be asked
also to withhold the 2,000,000 bales it
holds from trade channels.
Stone, in his telegrams to the gov
ernor, estimated that probable carry
over a year from now under present
conditions would be about 11,000,000
"The condition," he said, "has al
ready resulted in drastic price de
clines in . cotton prices which, if al
lowed to continue, may bring direct
disaster to cotton producing states
and indirect disaster to the nation."
The program would be put into ef
fect September 1 and be completed
September 15.
The suggestion was regarded as the
board's most, important move since
stabilization operations were at
tempted in 1929. At that time 1,300,
000 bales of cotton were bought at
an average price of $85 a bale in an
effort to steady sagging prices.

Cross Form New Hybrid
Jim Grierson of Richland, Wash.,
has succeeded in cross pollinating to
matoes with peppers and this year
has a short row of plants bearing the
new hybrid. The sample which he
took to Pasco was about two inches
long and about one inch in diameter.
It was red m color. The walls of the
fruit are like the pepper but the in
side is much like a tomato. The fruit
partakes of the flavor of both par
ents. He said he expects to name the
new product "Grierson's Special."
Various people have suggested that it
be called "Peptom" or "Tompep," and
some are already speculating on the
possibilities of crossing different va
vieties of peppers with different vari
eties of tomatoes.
Some suggested a cross between the
tomato and the red hot peppers to
produce hot sauce, while some thought
the milder hot peppers when proper
ly crossed might produce a special
brand of catsup. The sample sub
mitted furnished a basis for many
ideas among the wags and dreamers.

Moscow, Idaho. Placer gold miners
are more active in Idaho this summer
than for any period within the past
30 years," according to a report from
Stewart Campbell, state mine inspec
tor, who is in northern Idaho look

, He reports that every river, little
creek in theiplacer districts, and other
places where minrs think gold is to
be found they are working. Pumps
can be seen operating along the up
per and lower reaches of the Salmon
river. Some pumps have been plac
ed on barges along the river. Miners
are searching for gold in the Stanley
basin, on the south fork of the
Clearwater halfway to Elk City, in
the Boise basin, along the Salmon
river and hundreds of other, places.
There are hundreds of men at this
work. Many are making a few dol
lars a day which is helping to relieve
the unemployment situation as every
miner makes one less man looking for
a job. .
Much of the work this summer is
on ground which has been overlooked
by old-timers. Few men are working
on old ground. Many are beginners

Barry's candidacy and he received a
tremendous ovation when Jack Biggs
of Hermiston passed the gavel to
him. ,
A fitting complement was extended
to Eastern Oregon by the selection of
Hhgh Bray of LaGrande as state vice
commander. Brady at first was men
tioned as a possible successor to Vic
tor MacKenzie of Salem as national
executive committeeman, but the of
fice went to Sid S. George of Eugene,
because of his greater experience in
national affairs. George is the past
department commander, under whose
administration the movement was
started to obtain the national conven
tion. George attended the past three
national conventions and this year
was membership chairman of the
state department, which went over
the top in membership.
To assure complete harmony, so es
sential if Portland was to get the na
tional convention, any and all reso
lutions of a cgntroversal nature, were
eliminated from the floor. That, per
haps, accounts for the silence that
was attached to any mention of the
rivalry between Roseburg and Eugene
for the national soldiers' home.
This convention was honored by the
attendance of many legionaries from
other states, including the national
commander. Ralph P. O'Neil of To-
peka, Kan.,
The baseball tournament was a
feature of the convention and the
final game, which was won by Port
land, was an errorless contest and
one of the best that Sowers has seen
this year, he said. In all, about 10,
000 attended the three gamer.
The drum corps contest, won by
Salem Post, was perhaps, the most
spectacular held in Oregon. The ex
hibition rendered by the Salem drum
corps stamped it as competent to
compete with the best in the nation,
according to Major Walter Balcy,
member of the national trophies and
award committee. Bend, Portland
LaGrande, Medford and Roseburg al
so received commendation.
The legion, at its final gathering ex
pressed its appreciation of the man
ner in which the local post handled
the convention under the leadership
of Cy Briggs, commander of the Whit
combe Post No. 11 of Corvallis, and
the state and local press were loudly
applauded for their assistance in
making the convention a success.
