Resolutions were recently passed by

those organizations to be opposed to any
legislative candidates who are not in

has commenced in this part of Gilliam.
The first camp was at the cattle corral
near the forks of Deep creek. Messrs.
Bridges, Barnard, Mahlon, Hall, I'erin,
Meiwer, Rose, Stewart, Turple and
others wore represented in person or by
agents in the ride. The principal object
of the round up is to gather horses for
breeding purose8 and also for breaking.
Stock has fattened this spring faster
than usual. Some attribute this to the
fact that the buffalo-grass is taking the
place of the bunchgrass in places where
the latter has been overstocked or fed
too closely by sheep. This buffalo-grass
matures earlier than the bunchgrass,
and has run up to seed some time ago.
It is said to be a better early grass than
the bunchgrass, but it dries out sooner,
and does not compare favorably with
the bunchgrass for fall and winter feed.
