While nut hunting, near Bllverton
last Sunday, Willie iialler, the 13-year-

quail and went on opposite sides of
them, When the quail rose Meyers
fired, the charge striking his compan

penetrating the other. Dr. Brewer is
doubtful of his recovery, and fears
that permanent blindness will result
from the injury.

MATT SCOTT ON HOGS.
He Was Interviewed in Portlan I by an
"Ex-Sheriff Matt Bcott, of Linn

of wheat his Albany prairie farm pro.
duces, Mr. Scott believes that iiilsiiig
"porkers" will be one of the greatest
Industries of the Willamette valley,
Just as soon as suhicient demand is
made and a market opened.
"We could get 75 cents a bushel for
wheat," said Mr. Bcott, "by feeding It
to hogs, if we had a pork-packing es
tablishment here somewhere. At this
lime, however, there is market only
for local wusumption. Some pork Is
shipped east, but comparatively, little.
I have lieen experimenting in pork
raising, and I am convinced we can
produce pork equal to any in America
with our wheat, and as I said before,
get as blgh as 75 cents a bushel in this
way for the wheat.
"Several old-lime farmers living
near me, stood watching me pour my
wheat to the 'pigs' and at once con
cluded I ought to lie sent to jail for

when the time came for taking mv I'ai
hogs In market, you couldn't put ene of
them in a wool sack after it was killed.
"I got $4.80 per hundred for my pork
on pool. This pays me better than
selling wheat at 40 cents a bushel.
But, until there Is a big pork-packing
house ip this vicinity, we can't all
raise pork. I hope such uu establish

The following, which is from the
Albany Democrat, gives the above a
"Somewhat Padded. The Oregou-
lan's interview with Ex-Sheriff Scott
on hog-raislug has excited considerable
Interest.: Mr. George Piper was the
reporter who did the work on Mr,
Scott. Mr. Scott's ideas on the value
of putting wheat into hogs and of the
advisability of a packing establish
ment were as advanced by liim.
Otherwise there was considerable pad
ding. That about his experimenting
Iu pork raising and about farmers
watching biui pour wheat to the hogs
was all in George's fertile brain. Mr.
Scott lives iu Albany and does not
raise hogs at all. He Is simply a buyer

A Good Joke on a Preacher.
The best joke of the season was per
petrated on Rev. Wallace last Satur
day by some of the boys here. The
reverend1 gentleman bought a big 81
poind chiiinift salmon and left it lay
ing In front of a store while he carried
some tilings up to Mr. Hawley's house,
where ho waa slopping. While he was
gone some of the boys, headed by the
irrepressible Bob Campbell, took a
three ounce vial and stuffed a scrap of
paper iu it on which was a scribbled
statement that the aforesaid bottle was
thrown overboard from a sinking
steamer in the Alaska waters last Feb
ruary. The name sf the vessel was
unfortunately (?) blurred so that it
could not be deolphered. This bottle
they slutted Into the salmon's interior
und awaited developments. Mr.
Preacher came back andgot his salmon
und look it home to clean It, and pretty
soon canio down an excited preacher
exhibiting his find. The boys held
their sides to keep from laughing anil
looked solemn. But the best part of it
came to to pass y-sterday when the
Oregonian priuted a communication
giving the details of the whole. And
our friend Wallace will never know
how he was gulled until he sees this
this expose. Another funny part Is
that one half of the people in the town
could remember the sinking of the
vessel until the joke leaked out. To
ledo Lender. .
