A. H. Sunderman Advises
Sheepmen to Hold their!
Wool for Sale Day and not
Sell Early to the Speculator.
A. II. Sunderman of Echo, in an ar
ticle to the East Oregonian, advisee
sheepmen to grsde their wool if they
expect the best prices. He says:
Alreday the wonld-be wool bnyer is
running over the country with his self-
framed phrase, "wool ia three cents
lower than last year." With him he
alho brings an entire catalogue of unfav
orable circumstances, and would have
yon to believe them, afier he has also
prevented them and also acted upon
them before he leaves.
"You well remember how some of
these same men were around last spring
with the same stories and by ' virtue of
the same induced many of you to sell
your wool to them.
Then after turning their holdings
over to the buyers of the east, at c
profit returned to San Francisco and
were "shentlemen" for the rest of the
year, while you and I had the range
qneslion for the summer to fight, care
less herders to pay, hay to buy, winter
range to ent and pay high prices for,
stand the lose of sheep, have all the tru-t
on salt and Backs to meet, and now
tomes the taxes to pay Jlju lor every
$1 000 worth of sheep yon have worked
Now, for tbe benefit of the wool in
dostry of the county and State, why not
keep tbe wool nneold until the Wool-
growers Association offers the wool for
sale. This would keep these men from
establishing a procedent by which all
following sales would be gauged.
If tbe men must bave wool let them
meet tbe Woolgrowers on the day when
the wool is for sale, it will be much
cheaper then. They can see more wool
n one hour, than they would by running
over tbe con ntry for a month.
Let them place themselves on the floor
and bid with the "Boston man." It will
make things more pleasant than to stop
work at home, and listen to the ring of
the low price tune.
borne may think tn's brow-beating is
a good business. It may be for some
but it needs fixing and will be fixed in a
(ew yeara if things continue.
Now the above is not so much what I
wanted to aay. (

Had you listened to the speech made
by Mr. Hardin, president of the Menu
faclurers Association of Boston, whilt in

your wool with more care than you have
in the past.
Let the shearer do his work with care
Don't let him merely practice on your

Outlook Is Brighter.
While the cattle markets continue very
greatly depressed, there setus to be
gradual improvement in the tone of the
market. Cattlemen have been very
greatly discouraged but Indicationa are
that with the advent of spring, condl
tlont will resume a more normal basis
and the ootlook It for decidedly better
pricet. Many cattle wet a forced oo the
market last fall lcause of the high pile
of feed and with tbe advent of spring
ibis claes of cattle will be held to go on
grass. Thooe who art U-M posted on the
situation are Inclined to be very bluish

RAIN RETARDS SEEDING
Farmers Believe, Although the
Season Is Short, They will get
Spring Crop Seeded on Time.
W. 0. Minor returned Saturday from
the sales of bereforda and shorthorns at
8pokane and Pendleton, the Walla Walla
sale being declared off on account of
scab with which some of the cattle of
fered for tale were affected.
Mr. Minor reports that the Spokane
aale, at which place his herd waa told,
was a little slow owing to the delayed
Great Northern trains. Eleven buvera
were detained nntil after thia sale had
closed on account of snow blockades oh
the Great Northern. However, Mr.
Minor's herd of aeven sold for an average
of $181, Chief's Belle bringing $425. If
the other eleven buyers had got there on
time no doubt much better prices would
The Pendleton aale of shorthorns waa
more spirited. The cattle sold there
waa made up entirely of the Wade herd
which consisted of 35 head which told
for $9160, Hillcrest, the herd bull bring
ing an even $1000. .
Rain Retards Seeding.
Tbe continued rains ia retarding spring
seeding in Morrow county. Although
there waa a very large acreage of grain
eown last fall, yet there is a considerable
acreage to be seeded thia spring and it ia
now getting late for this work. Bnt
some of the farmers tell aa that if the
grain can be put In the ground any time
during the month of March it will be in
plenty of time for a good crop.
Although it will take only two or three
windy days to dry the ground so that the
drill can be put in operation, the farmers
are beginning to feel uneasy as to wheth
er they will get such weather in time for
spring seeding. The month it now half
gone and still it raina.
The farmera have everything in readi
ness, however, and with even a week of
good weather a very large amount of
grain will be sown.
One of the prettiest little weddings
that the Timea reporter hat witnessed
