California, due to > the hoof and mouth
disease, expect a profitable year. Gar .
deners of this section are already mar
keting *a varied assortment of stuff, in
cluding asparagus, splnaeh, rhubarb
and radtebra. Local grocers declare i
that tbe early white icicle radtehea i
that are being marketed here by Fred I
Tooley, of Rowena, are of a finer qual
ity than usual.
The acreage of potatoes in this sec
tion, it is anticipated, will be increased I
this year. The application of the anti
Japanese land holding law in Califor
nia, according to tbe word brought
here by California pototo dealers,
will decrease the potato acreage in
that state materially this year. As a
naulUof the exodus of Jspanese, it is
declared, potato prices have already
shown a considerable jump here.

L. L. MURPHY,
“After the country was wrested
from the Kaffirs, prosperity followed
fsrming which was begun in pioneer
style, like that in Oregon about 50
years ago:- A few cases of foot and
mouth disease broke out occasionally,
but the country being well stocked
with cattle, no notice was taken of it.
Then a great drouth struck the coun
try. No rain fell for five or six
months. Then of a sudden, so to
speak, overnight, the plague, called by
the Boers, Rinder-Pest, broke out
amongst tbe cattle. The breed of the
latter was of good class. The Lukus
have a tradition that they came from
northern Africa and were descendants
<>f ths Arabs, and naturally they took
great pride In their animate.
"Stringent measnres were at once
adopted by the whites, and all infect
ed animate were shot and their car-
i-assea burned. In spite of this the
disease could not be restrained. Some
days It mysteriously jumped 20 and
30 miles ever the quarantined areas
and broke out with renewed fury.
Then the theory was advanced that
the testae fly, which breeds In the neck
of big game, carried tbe virus. How
ever,'any horsefly which might have
alighted on a carcass or .infected
animal might have carried the germ.
Any cattleman will agree that cows,
after all, are dean animals and very
sensitive to certain surroundings. As
Is well known, there existed an old
feud between cattle and sheep men.
"The Kaffirs were not at first affect
ed by the disease. Then all of a sud
den tbs sleeping sickness stalked them.
It killed them by the thousands.

"The whites thought they would
stamp the disease out. The savage
Matabeles. "however, told by their
witch doctors that the whites bad
brought the disease'into the country,
rose In rebellion snd killed everybody
they could find In tbe outlying dis
tricts. Little hews of these butcheries
was allowed to leak out by the Char
tered Compuiry. Tbe disease had by
this time swept the country clear of
domestic animate The once fertile
land, with its many military kraals,
surrounded by fields of Kaffir and In
dian corn, became a complete desert.
The rivers dried up. The remaining
water holes became poisoned, and
withal the picture was a dismal one.
"I had a 9,000 acre cattle ranch, and
I had to kill all of my animals. I was
well acquainted with the big game
hnntera, Including Colenbrander and
Cunningham. I agreed with them
that the disease was first. In all like
lihood, the regular foot and mouth
disease, which was aggravated by the
drouth, carelessness. By allowing the
sick animals to mingle with big game
resulted in the dreadful Rinder-Pest,
Tlie adjoining state, the Boer Repub
lic Transvaal, made stringent laws
nnd kept the disease out of their coun
try. This waa made comparatively
easy, as the railroad had not lx>en

boundary of hundreds of miles of bush

very likely remain a mystery. It be-

fight against the. disease, there is no
reason why, in this rich country of
the states, tbe disease cannot be soon

The niid-Columbia celebrated forest
fire prevention week last week very
improperly. Following the drying east
wind that prevailed from the east, the
tinderlike forests were fired In varioua
places. On Neal creek, where It was
necessary to send a crew of 26 men,
who were aided by’ the big motor fire
truck of the city, a fire threatened
green forests and several hundred
cords of wood. In the Upper Valley,
west of Parkdale, brush fires got be
yond control and caused a worry for
some time. Fires In tbe vicinity of
Trout creek caused ranchera alarm.
It i was feared that houses might be
Several fires were started in 'Klick-
itat and Skamania counties, Washing-
ton. The worst was on Wind river,
where crews were called out by forest
ry officiate to quell a blaze threatening
a body of green timber.
The wind changed to the west Sun
day night, ending danger of further
blazes for a time. The continuation
of the strong east wind left the humid
of the mid-Columbla unusually low
for this season of the year- Fires in
the forest of the Northwest were gen
eral and much damage waa caused.

- ON CATTLE DISEASE
With their fairly heavy rainfall and
green pasture laud, Oregon and Wash
ington, according to A. Dester, local
man, who was formerly a rancher ef
Rhodesia, South Africa, need have no
fear of serious consequences from the
foot and mouth disease among domes-
tic animals. Mr. Pester, however, ad
vises tbe application of strict quaran
tine against California livestock and
agricultural products, in order to bring
the disease under coutrol.
Mr. Pester, tbe author of two books,
dealing with bis African explorations,
one on big game of South Africa and
the other concerning the ancient work
ings of tbe Queen, Sheba mines in Rho
desia, recalls that the dread disease
struck Rhodesia some 23 years ago.
"The interest the population of the
Pacific coast is now taking in the foot
and mouth disease may not make it
