Fred Hoskins is summering his
two bands of sheep in the moun
tains back of Meacham and reports
that the feed is the best it has been
in years. This holds good for the
mountain ranges in the forest area,
and is due n odoubt to the late
rains. Mr. Hoskins also states that
there are many more sheep in the
mountains than usual, owing to the
large holdover, and the abundant
feed is proving a blessing to the
llockmasters. Mr. Hoskins was in
town from his Rhea creek ranch

daughter Rachel motored to Yaki
ma Saturday, returning home by

quite general in the Lexington sec

having been much benefitted by the
cool June weather.

The croquet season is on again,
Saturday, July 4th, being the offi
cial opening day on the Huston
court and the first game was bet-ween
W. O. Dix and T. J. Humph
reys, the latter having been the
challenger and he carried off the
laurels for the initial contest in
fact his game was so hot that Dix
has not yet figured out just what
it was all about. Two games fol
lowed in the afternoon with Hum
phreys and Huston vs. Crawford
and Dix, getting a game each. This
put new courage in Dix, and he
challenged Humphreys to play an
other two-handed game, and he re
ceived another beating. On Tues
day evening Crawford was matched

down with a complete knockout,
following which he and Dix pro
