The La Grande Sugar Factory
Has Leased Land at Echo to
Experiment In Culture pf
Monte Gwinn, secretary ot the Idaho
Woolgrowers' association, states that
30,000 sheep were loaded at Idaho Falls
last week for shipment to San Fran
cisco. These are the sheeD that have
been fed on the pulp at the sugar factory.
Heretofore practically every sheep
that has been sent to the market has
gone east to Chicago or some other
packing center of the east. The ship
ment of so many in the opposite di
rection gives rise to the presumption
that they are destined to feed the army
of either Japan or Russia in the far east.
No statement, however, can be ob
tained of such a destination, as the
purchase of supplies in a neutral na
tion for use of an army of either power
would not be made directly by the
government and the ultimate purpose
of such supplies would not be given out.
"It is not known," said Mr. Gwinn,
whether the sheep are to go to Japan
or Russia. It certainly looks as though
they were started for the far east, how
ever. At any rate they are sent in an
entirely different direction than most
shipments, removing that much mutton
from the Chicago market, and that is
what interests a sheepman."
