"lii'viPs Tea Kettle."' The springs
throughout llastern Oregon are used
by the ranchers and butchers for
scalding bogs, and were used In early
days by the Indians for boiling their
meats, lint the "Hevll'H Tea Kettle"
Is too hot for all practical purposes.
The ordinary springs are Just tbo
right temperature for scalding hogs
and the ranchers bring them to tbo
springs and plunge them into the
water for a moment and draw them
out and the hair slips oft readily.
Hut tbo "Kevirs Tea Kettle" sets the
hair and makes It almost Impossible
to remove It from tbo hogs. Tbo
experienced rancher no longer taken
any chances on this nprlng unless It
is to dip tbo water from the basin
and let it cool until the proper tem
Hruturo is reached.
