tion. The rabbit drive al the month of But
ter Creek New Year day was the most
successful ever held in Oregon, and it is
doubtful if a larger kill was ever made
anywhere. Three miles ofwire netting
bad been put up for the wing. Only
about 300 people participated in the
drive, which started at tt o'clock, and
was all over in about 20 minutes.
A huge crowd had been expected from
Heppner and Pendleton, but the trains
were so late that but few came, and
they got there too late to be parties io
the drive. It was an impossible task
to count the rabbits slaughtered, bat
estimates of the number run from 6,000
to 8,000. Not only was the corral full
of rabbits, but along the wings there
were windrows of them, where the driv
ers had killed them. Two coyotes were
also caught in the drive and clubbed to
One thousand of the carcasses were
taken to Echo to the cannery, that be
ing all that could be taken care of ctfore

the taUace were left to rot upon the

that they have secured thn nrnmua rj
over 1,000 rooms for use of visitors and
delegates during the meeting in that
city. At first the committee thought
that rooms would be hard to find, owing
to the apparent scarcity of houses and
the possibility of all the rooms in the
occupied houses being filled, but the
response to a call for rooms has de
valoped the fact that there is plenty cf
spare rooms for all, and so the matter of
accommodation is practically settled
This will be gratifying news to the
many stockmen who contemplate at
tending the convention and have been
wondering whether they would be able
to secure lodging. A large number of
Morrow county stockmen expect to
visit the convention.

H. Evans drove in a herd of 25

which he sold to John Kinsman, who
in turn ehipped them to the Port

If Experiments are a Success
Question of Rejuvlnatlngthe
Eastern Oregon Range Has
Been Already Solved
Crop reports received by the local
Weather Bureau for the month of
December are very favorable, especially
o as to fall wheat which is doing finely
in nearly every section of the state.
Except in portions of the state where
the weather wss clear, little plowing
was done during the latter portion of
the month, owing to the wetness of tne
ground, and hardley any seeding was
carried on in the state during the month
stall. Stock is doing well, and in a
greater part of the state is yet on the
pasture. Fruit trees are in fine shape,
but it is feared that Ujey may bloom
prematurely, while the cold weather is
yet on. Root and forage nlants and
vegetables show an excellent growth,
and have not been impared by the
Dry Land Alfalfa.

lie will probably order a ton of the
seed the first shipment, to be parceled
out in small amounts to the different
farmers who desire to give it a trial.
It will grow and make a good crop on
the dries land, defying drouth, hot
weather or flooding, and if -the tests
prove successful throughout the dry
section of the state. Colonel Judson
feels that the question of rejuvenating
the ranges has already been solved.
