FRIDAY, JANUARY 3, 1S90. .
The citizens of the eastern part of
Wasco county have been at work cir
culating petitions to the acting com
missioner of the general land office,
praying that the order prohibiting
flheep and other stock from grazing on
the Cascade forest reserve be rescinded,
nd the petitions are being generally
nigned. It, looks as if the sheep will
be permitted to contiuue to range on
Mt. Hood, to the great detriment of
the settlers at the upper end of this val
ley. They will continue to pollute the
sources of our. streams and eventually
endaugi-r our water supply. No one
seems disposed to oppose the sheep
ranging on the. mountain,-outside of
Hood River people and our friend
V. O. Steel. Our senators and repre
sentatives are being asked to use their
influence at Washington to open the
reserve to the , sheep, and they are
using it to that end. Sheep' men are
few In number but they seem to have a
strong pull with legislators and those
in authority and generally manage to
get what they want
' The La Grande land office officials
publish in the Heppner Gazette the
following extract from the law in re
gard to cutting and disposing of timber
by homesteaders on public lands: "Tim
ber lanl embraced in a homestead, or
other entry uot consummated, may be
cleared in order to cultivate the land
and improve the premises,-but for no
other purpose. If, after clearing the
land for cultivation, there remains
more, there is no objection to the Bet
tier disposing of the same. But the
question whether the land is being
cleared of its timber for legitimate pur
poses la a question of facts which is
liable to- be raised at any time, , If the
timber Is cut and removed for any
other purpose, it wjll subject the entry
to cancellation, and the person who
cut it will be liable to civil suit for the
value of said timber, and also a crim
inal prosecution under section 2461 of
the Revised Statutes."
c A fruit man of California has discov
ered a new pear tree pest. He wrote to
Mr. Sargent, formerly secretary of the
state board of horticulture, who re
ferred the matter to the board. The
writer says: "We have a new pest in
the pear orchards. At least it is new
in the orchards, but we have known of
its existence on the French seedlings
imported by nurserymen for propagat
ing for several years. It is the pear
root aphis, and is supposed to be as
fatal to the pear tree as the phylloxera
lias been to the grape vine. The trees
where this pest has been discovered
have made little or no growth the past
season, and on examining the small,
fibrous roots of the trees, the minute
uphis,' with its - white exudations, is
found in large numbers. This is quite
another thing from the woolly aphis of
the pear and apple. As far as we can
learn there is no remedy, and we
would like to know how generally it Is
distributed over the coast."

The populists held a mass meeting
in Portland last Sunday. Represent

from Eastern Oregon claimed every

The populists of Oregon are begin

question, and thus save the wear and

The contractors at the Cascades say
the locks will be completed not later
than March 1st. Arrangements have
been made, it is said, to allow the Reg

Senator Mitchell of Oregon is favor
ably mentioned by the Eastern pres3
for the nomination for vice president
on the republican ticket.
President Cleveland has announced
the appointment of the Venezuela
boundary commission, as follows: David
J, Brewer of Umisas, associate justice
of the U. S. supreme court; Richard H.
Alvey of Maryland, chief justice of the
court of appeals of the District of Co
lumbia; Andrew D. White of New
York; Frederic R. Coudert of New
York, and Daniel C. Oilman of Mary
land. Brewer and White are republi
cans, Alvey and Coudert democrats,
while Gilman has never figured in
politics but is supposed to be a republican.
The editor of "Note and Comment"
in the New Year's Oregonian -says:
"The married life of Mr. and Mrs. E.G.
Johnson of Agency, Iowa, is one of the
longest on record. They recently cel
ebrated the 61st anniversary of their
wedding, which occurred in North
Adams, Mass., in 1834; Mr. Johnson
being 84 and his aged companion 78."
A Hood Ri ver couple can beat this record-
for length of married life. Mr.
and Mrs. Daniel D. Rogers of Hood
River were married in Troupsburg,
N. Y., April 24, 1834. Mr. Rogers was
born February 4, 1815, and bis aged
companion November 22, 1816. This
worthy couple retain the use of all their
faculties unimpaired, and both of them
are able to attend to their habitual du
ties about their home. They came to
Hood River In 1878.
The Salem Journal suggests that
when the republican primaries are held

The board of directors of this district
at their meeting last Friday evening,
voted to have a wood engraving made
of the new building, which Is to be used
as an illustration in the course of study
which was adopted for the school at a
previous meting, and which will be
printed as soou as the engraving can
be made. The engraving will be made

Engraving company of New

The board adopted three or four reso
lutions at the same meeting which are
for the government of pupils and teach
ers in the school and relate more es
pecially to examination and grades.
The resolutions are in substance that
any pupil who absents himself from
the regular examinations shall not be
permitted to enter his classes again till
he has passed the examination as re
quired by the other pupils.
The second resolution provides that
any pupil who wilfully or purposely re
fuses to do his best in an examination
shall be dropped from his grade.
. The third resolution provides that
when any pupil fails to obtain a
general average of 70 credits out of a
possible hundred in all the branches in
which he is examined, he shall be
transferred to a lower grade, and if nec
essary to a lower department.
A further resolution provides that no
resident pupil of district No. 3, under
21 years of age, shall be permitted to
take any of the higher branches taught
in the school until the pupil hascom
Dleted the -eight-year course of study
which will be provided for the shool in
the near future, and ' shall have re
ceived a diploma or certificate to that
effect.' This last resolution goes into
effect after June, 1806.

A Great Invention. ,
' " Jloro Observer. ',''''.
Elder Neece has a friend in the East
who has solved the problem of how to
make a cow give down her milk. Pie
has been loth to impart the secret of
his new discovery to the public until
he had given it a fair and impartial,
trial and was sure of its success in every
particular. This has been fully demon
strated, as it took but two applications
to cure his own cow of the habit it had
fallen Into of holding up her milk (for
a higher price), and now we give it to
the public' Take a board (not a hotel
or resturant board, but a common, every
day, ordinary piece) about four inches
wide by 18 inches long, shape it into a
paddle, and through this, a few inches
from the wide end,drive two six-penny
wire nails, opposite each other and
about two Inches apart. There's your
milk producer, and a very simple one
it is, but of no account unless you uu
derstaud its use. The directions, as
given us by Mr. Neece, are as . fol
lows: ""When the cow refuses to give
down her milk all that is necessary is
to take the paddle, place the nail points
one oh each side of the bovine's spinal
column and give it a vigorous scratch
ing, drawing the paddle along the
aforesaid column, but not pressing
hard enough to wound the hide. If
you have ever noticed, there is general
ly a slight elevation in a cow's spine
when she is holding up her milk. 1 he
scratching process will educe the "ele
vation" almost immediately, -and ap
pears to loosen up all the animal's cords
and muscles, making it impossible
for her to bang onto the milk. " This
is a great discovery, and has "ut the
inventor in the front ranks as one of
the world's greatest benefactors. We
heard one man say today that lie was
going to fix up one of the paddles and
see how it will work on the milkman;
while auother one is figuring on trying
the experiment upon a friend of whom
he wants to borrow $10. , However,
laying all jokes aside, Mr. Neece says
it works like a charm and is so simple
and Inexpensive th,at any one can give
it a trial.
The Salem Statesman learns from
persons who are in a position to know
that the state tax levy for 1896 will be
the largest for several years. ' It is
stated that it will not be less than
Notwithstanding that this year has

The maddest woman in town is a
married lady, who on a recent night
sat up until 1 o'clock waiting for her
hustmnd to come home- from lodge.
Oh, no, she wasn't going to say any
thing to him. Finally, utterly worn
out by her long atul fruitless vigil, she
went to her room to turn in and found
the missing husband in bed, fast
asleep,where he had gone immediately
after supper instead of going to lodge.
And all that woman is mad about now
is that she can't get into the right posi
tion to kick herself. Prineville Re

The coyote and wildcat scalps are
piling in pretty rapidly, and quite a
pull from the treasury will be made
after the next .meeting on Jan 4th.
The scheme is working admirably, and
it is to be hoped that all the members
of the union who have not yet paid
their assessments to the treasurer, Mr.
Frank Irvine, will do so at once. It is
surprising the amount of wildcat
scalps that are coming in, and sheep
men inform us that these brutes do
learly as much damage to their Hocks
as the coyotes themselves. Antelope
Why is it that criminals, as a rule are
better fed than many law abiding
people? Every once in awhile we rend
about the tine turkey dinner given at
the jail in large cities while there are
hundreds of poor people who do not
know where to go for a crust of bread.
It does not seem to be any punishment
to feed prisoners on the fat of the land.
Fewer luxurious dinners and more
hard work might be a diet to try.

In making nominations for mem
bers of the next legislature, care should
be taken to choose persons favorable to
the re-enactment of the mortgage tax
law and the clause for the exemption
of honest indebtedness. The repeal of
these statutes has worked much more
hardship on the tax payers of Oregon
than any other legislative enactment
for years. Jacksonville.Times.

He says the three miles of pipe for lead

now complete. One week will suffice
to complete the rock work at the lower
end of tbe canal, and tbe blasting at
