In Memoriin.
Hied. At tho family homo four
miles south of Lakeview, March 5,
1007, David II. Hartzog, oged 01
About two weeks ago Mr. Hartzog
was taken sick with pneumonia. He
had recovered from this disease, when
convention of the kidneys Bet in and
took bini away within a short time.
Mr. Hartzog was an honored mem
ber of the Masonic order and a mem
ber of the Haptist church.
He was a man of generous impulsed
und never forgot the hospitable ways
of the pioneer. The stranger, even
though a betrgar never failed to find
food aud hhelter if he fought it at his
hands, and be was at home by the
bedside of the sick and delighted in
all kinds and neighborly offices.
He had borne adversity bravely and en
joyed prosperity quietly. He bad fill
ed the various relations of life, as son
husband, father, brother, friend, and
filled then well. Who can do more?
Hut he is gone ! Another name is
stricken from the ever lessening roll
of our old settlers, and a solitary
woman in the midst of life, ai d a lone

these tender human ties cannot be
severed without a pang. Yet in such
a death there is really no cause for
grief. His work was well done.
He was a devoted ' husband and a
kind and indulgent father; to bis
friends the soul of fellowship. Hut
the gt eatest of all was he as a man.
And as a man it is that those who
knew him best most love to contem
plate him. He believed in the father
hood of God and the brotherhood of
man. He believed that the man who
scatters flowers in the pathway of his
fellow men, who lets into the dark
places of life the sunshine of human
sympathy and human happiness, is
following in the footsteps of his Mas
ter. He was a man who united sound
sense with strong convictions, and
a eviA, outspoken' temper, emi
nently fitted to mould the rude ele
ments of poneer society into form
and consistency, and aid in raising
a high standard of citizenship in our
young aud growing community. How

riore wool and a Much
Better Staple.
Coyote are Getting Numerous on
the Desert. Cause Host Loss
Among the Sheep.
That the price of wool this year will
be slightly under the figure paid last
year, is the prophesy of local dealers.
The reasons given are that last, year
through the months of January, Feb
ruaiy aud March, considerable wool
was contracted for on the sheep's
backs- Advance payments were made,
the interest on which could amount to
very large sums. The fact dealers
made small profits on these purchases
has kept tLem from buying so early
this year. Up to the present time,
very little, if any wool has been con
tracted for, and it is not expected
that any spirited 'campaign Jof con
tracting will be carried on, most buy
ers preferring to wait till shearing
time, or nearly so. When it is re
membered that some of the wool that
was contracted for a year ago has not
yet reached the purchasers, it will be
readily seen that the interest, at a
very reasonable rate would equal a
fair profit on these purchases. The
price of wool for the past two years
has been so nearly the limit that the
slighest inflation in local prices in
volves a loss to buyers .and delayed
shipments causThe matter of Inter'
est td flgTirAipisinst profits. While
no serious reduction is contemplated,
local dealers say they expect the price
to be a little under last year's prices. -
From what we can learn the clip will
be up to that of last year in weight
and the staple better. Last year
there was some scab, while very little
scab has made its appearance in very
few bands. Then again, sheep have
been in good condition throughout
the year, and the fleece growing all
the while.
Stock Inspector M alloy states that
out of 2G bands inspected on his recent
trip over the eastern part of the coun
ty, i of the bands had scab and 22
were clean.
Last year sheep sheared 5 to 6 '
pounds, where this year the same
sheep wil shear 7 to 8 pounds, so that,
while the number of sheep is less than
were shorn .last yaer, the aggreagte
output will be equal, if uot greater,
aud although the price may he a little,
uuder last year's price?, the income i.i'i
to the county, as a whole will not fall
short of last year's.
The loss iu range sheep this' winter
w ill be almost wholly confined to that
caused by varmints. The fact is
slightly known and little realized that
the rapid iucrease iu coyotes on the
ranges is making inroads upon one of
the county's chief industries.
Sheep $5.50 per Head.
Phil Lynch came in town Tuesday
from the sheep range. Phil has sold
4000 head of ewes to Frank Kueny for
S5.50 per head. Mr. Lynch delivers
tho sheep the 20th of 'this month.
They will be taken to Steins Moun
tains. Phil baa a few ewes left aud
about 7,000 head of yearlings and 2-year-old
weathers. Mr. Lynch says
sheep have done fine on the range and
the wool is long, and very little scab
