HORSE IS LOST IN
A valuablo horso was lost and Wil
liam Walters, 10, had a very narrow
escape from drowning when ho at
tempted to ford Roguo river a short
distance below Gold Roy Sunday af
ternoon. The borte stepped into a
liolo and, caught by tho current, was
tiwcpt away, while young Walters
succeeded In awlramlng out. Wal
ters, when the horse first fell,
grabbed the animal by the neck and
it is believed that this the reason the
animal failed to regain Its feet.
The accident was witnessed 1y

Walters ashore. The horse was
washed down stream several hundred
yards. Walters resides In tho Bams

HORSE RUNS AWAY
THREE TIMES IN
A horo that ran away three tlmea
within IS minutes furnished excite
ment for early morning pedestrians
Sunday and for a time threatened
serious Injury to a number of on
looker who got In Its way. The
animal, drlton by Chub Hamlin,
turned a sharp corner onto Main
street at Central avenue and pitched
tta driver to tho, street. It then ran
west to the It theatre, where It was
stopped nnd where a frightened oc
cupant of the carriage, a frlud of
Mr. Hamlin's, alighted. All through
(he race this man had desperately
clutched a hickory cano which he
dropped when the horso stopped. He
explained that ho had a sprained
ankle and that ho figured he was tak
tag leas chances by staying by the
runabout than he would If he had
One of those who had stopped the
horse entered the runabout to drive
the outfit to a livery stable, when It
again broke loose and dashed head-on
for Uuscey's window. Hero it was
quieted by a couple of livery hands
only after they had been swung In
the air and badly shaken. Tho run
away then started, for no sooner was
the horse apparently quiet than it
broke for the big Weeks & McGowan
window. Ira Dodge's passing auto
mobile was In the line of travel, but
by running his machine up on the
sidewalk Ira was able to escape.
Tho horse was stopped with Ha nose
against the glass.
Mr. Hamlin's arrival ended tho fes
tivities as he was able to drlvo the
horse down Main street without a
great deal of trouble, although the
speed he registered broke all city
ordinances. Had the horse staged Its
performance on a crowded street the

PORTLAND, Ore.. March 10. Re
ceipts for the week have been; Cattlo
1304; calves 9; hogs' 2544; sheep
3348; horMs 20.
Cattlo liquidation has been com
paratively liberal this week but steers
were the only class which showed
steadiness. Nearly all steer offer
ings graded a shade short of prime,
selling 17.75 down to 17.25, with one
small lot at $8. Tops are consider
ed steady at $7.70 to $7.75. Butcher
stock baa been slow duo to lack of
quality but demand is not very broad
for the best- Although an urgent
call for prime calvea rules, receipts
have been Insignificant. A good bull
trade at steady prices shared butcher
division activity with cows. Gen
erally the cattle market is steady
with downward tendency.
The bog market Is rapidly advanc
ing to tho $9.00 level of two years
ago. Thursday's run contained sev
eral loada of prime light swlno and
they all brought $8,75 blda from anx
ious buyers. Week's total gain has
boen approximately 50 cents. Re
ceipts have been light and demand
firm. Portland is again tho highest
bog market in tho country.
The Bhcep house furnished several
surprises this week. Mutton and
lamb markets have been shaky for
the last fortdlght and tho sudden ac
tivity this wcok upfct all calculations.
Killers, showed they could, be induced
to bid for prime yearllugs, ewes and
lambs. They at least gave top prices
for beveral cars, $0.25 to $0.35 for
yearlings, $5.23 for owes, $7.00 and
$7.25 for lambs. Packers were evi
dently caught shorthanded and as tho
annual spring run of sheared stock Is
slow coming they grasped the oppor
tunity io get a temporary surplus.
The result being a Keller's market,
which weakened toward the close.
Market basis Is unsteady.
