On Thursday last Mr. Shott met Mr
McLean at Arlington, and together they
went to Castle Rock. After a careful
examination they found a deplorable
situation, that not only a number of
horses had actually died from the manae

affected with the disease, mostly cayuses
belonging to reservation Indians. How

Following a personal Inspection
Thursday the veterinarian reported the
situation to the state commission Friday
morning and the governor at once called
a meeting of the board, which directed
the state veterinarian to kilt a tew head
of the worst cases aa a" warning to the
Indians. Then give them to under

animals for tne disease at once tbey

The Indians were given three months

carcasses. The Indians were then ad
vised, alto white men who have horses
similarly affected, to proceed at once
with arrangements for dipping their
animals at least twice.
It was suggested that this be done at
the spring roundup, and that a union
dipping vat be constructed as it will
materially lessen the expense of dipping.
The Indians were given to understand
that this Is the last chance they will be
given by the state board. The state

New Kind of Wheat
Four years ago, while looking throueh
his wheat field just before harvest, Mr.
L"'c oi iieiix, discovered a stool of
wheat with eight head, which he care-
fully reaped and took home. The next
year he sowed them in his garden and
hat vested several pounds. Each year
he sowed this wheat himself, savin? ,11
the seed. Last year the increase from
the heads had grown sufficient to seed
several acres, which he did. sowin? the
new wheat by the side of a field of red
chaff. When harvest came he gathered
about 15 bushels more per acre from his
" wneai man irom the red chaff. It
also ripened .bout three waeks earlier
than the other wheat This year he has
sown 98 acres to this new brand of wheat
and says that if it comes out as good this
year as it his during the past four years
it will be the biggest wheat in the conn
try. He believes he has accidentallv
stumbled onto a new brand of wheat
which ia adapted to Umatilla county.
It ripens three weeks earlier, which ia a
great point in its favor. It also yields
more to the acre. Mr. Dale ia of th.
opinion that the new whiat ia across
