"Oh. its ideal I" remarked Professor
D. ('. Mooring, head of the department
of horticulture at the Washington Ag
ricultural college, Pullman, after he re
turned from a drive through the valley
with Joe Wilson, last Saturday.
"When I was attending college, we

t'rofessor Mooring regards Hood Kiver

Two other points the professor picked

The editor of the Wasco Newt in an
idle moment pens the following: "If a
business man see fit to daub hi note
heads and envelope with a rubber
stamp and thus lead outsider to think
there are no printer in town, he ought
to be assaulted. Such a man as that,
when he comes to die, should have his
obituary and the usual resolutions of
his lodge printed on a board fence with
a rubber stamp. When he has a baby
ot his home or a party, or a daughter or
son is married, a full account of the im
portant event might be printed on a
sheet of wrapping paper and tacked on
his front door. Come to think of it,
there is no end of use a rubber stamp
might be put to in the hands of an en
terprising and economical man."

in the high mountains to the west of
Mount Defiance, and at a point about
south oi cascade Jxicks he came across
a country well filled with hikes and
meadows, and tayt here he ran onto a

There were about a half dozen of them,
say Flint, but so wild he could get little
more than a fleeting glance of them.
Whenever he approached, the cattle
would take to the thick brush like deer.
Flint says lie would have shot one,
