The fields of the recent purchase ex tend from Heppner, in Morrow county through Grant, to Burns, in Harney county EIGHT MILE. growers in the sand district expect a better price than formerly. Some sand wool has been sold already at prices ranging from 9 to II cents, and a price as high as Z cents for the better grade of this wool is thought not to be improbable. The first sales day at Heppner will be May 26. While . there seems to be an inclination on the part of many to tell at private sale be fore the sales days, it Is not believed that a great number of growers will sell, for the reason that the advance buyers are offering a lower price than owners expect will prevail at the sales. The past winter has been very favora- ble to the sheep industry of Morrow county, little feed being required, and the loss has been practically nothing. Sheepmen will generally be satisfied with prices paid last year. Every one is so busy that they cant even "Rubberneck." Tillman Hogoe went to Heppner on business Thursday.

It is currently reported that two bands of sheep were shot into last San- day night north ol the John Day river in the Mt. Vernon country and that the number killed sggregats 250 while the number wounded is equally as large. One band was owned by Geo. Clark and It is said was ranging at the time on Dry creek on road land he had rented from the Eastern Oregon Land Co. His loss is placed at 148 killed and about the same nsmbe; wounded, many ol which will die. The other band was the property of W. T. McKern and was ranging at what is known as the Juniper Flats. His loss Is reported at about 100 killed and the same number wounded. These losses will fatl bsavity on the sheep owners, and will not have a ten dency to make range affairs any more agree sole in the future. Both Mr. Clark and Mr. McKern are prominent residents of Grant county and the affair is much regretted .-Canyon City Eagle. An Open Letter. From the Chapla, S.
