Portland, Ore., Feb. 10, (Special
to the Kxamluer) That them In
tar rout service. In various sections
of Oregon la the. warning notn con
tained in a letter recently received
here from former Senator Jntiothnn
llourne who ail v I mm that prompt pro
teat should bn made against any
uch move. Thin la a matter of In
termit particularly to oaatern Ore
run and coast Comities having much
tar route mall sorvlcn.
A every one known, the adoption
of the parrel pout remitted In enor
mous Increases In tho amount of mall
nspoclally for delivery within abort
distances. Tho Kovernment la now
connlderlnK bids for now star route
contract and It la certain thiit the
coinpenaatlon asked by bidders will
far exceed tho amount paid In the
pant. It la anticipated that In an ef
fort at economy tho Department will
nlthor postpone tho lotting of new
contracts or wilt reduce the frequen
cy of aervlco from dally mall to three
time a week or from throe times a
week to twlco or onco a week, or,
la some Instances, dlscontlnuo tho
Ia hU parcel post bill Senator
llourne provided for eight zone dis
tance, the first two being BO miles
and 160 miles respectively.
Tho bftl also authorized the Tost
m ater Qoneral, when experience de
monstrated the destrablllty, and
with the approval of the Interstate
Commerce Commission, after Investi
gation, to reduce the rate for the 150
mile sone as for the CO mile zone.
This gave patrons of long star routes
a rate that la below the freight rnte,
thus throwing Into the malls kik-Ii
matter that would ordlnnrlly lie
hauled In freight wagons.
Beuutor llourne takes the view
that tho original 60 mllo und lf.n
mile zones should have been retain
ed, with rates that w ill be Holf-sup-portliig.
and thut If the lc purtiiicnt
madn a inlHtnke In -nt ittil lull In k one
rate for the two dlxtnncoH, It should
not try to avoid the consequence
by roduclng or discontinuing service.
He contends that the people who
have gone out on the frontier to
make their homes and dovelop tho
latent resources of the country are
entitled to such encouragement and
assistance as the government can
give In the matter of mall service
and taya that patrons of star routes
should not consent to any diminu
tion of service on account of any un
wise acts of the administrative of
ficers of tho government.

Heavy snows covered the ground

by mild thaws. The subsequent cold

From the very origin of the breed
Shorthorns have bad two qualities to
commend lb em to the favorsble con
siderntlun of fsrmers and stockmen,
and It Is this dual capuclty for beef
and milk production that baa made
tbem so K)piilar. writes H. O. Cowan
In the Nstlonsl Htockmao. As beef pro
ducers they are known over the civi
lized world, but tbelr dairy qualities,
though excellent when prowrly devel
oped, are not so well recognized.
At the present day the large herds
that supply the city of London with
milk and butter are compoaed quite
largely and In some cases exclusively
of Hhorthorn cows, either pure bred or
high grades. To some extent this la
also true In New York and New Eng
land. The best milk record of any Short
born cow Is that of Hose of (ilen-lde,
msJ under the auspices of the Penn
sylvania Agricultural college. iJurlng
a test of twelve months she produced
18.075 pounds of milk and 730 pounda
of butter, an average of two pounda of
butter per day and 40.5 pounds of

SHEEPFOLD IN WINTER.
Parasites and Colds Common
Sbeep are not subject to many win
ter ailments thnt cannot be prevented
if proier precaution Is taken In ar
ranging hnrus and yards and feed
ing suitable foods in the right propor
tions, writes L. J. Meredith In the Iowa
Homestead. One of tbe best treat
ments for sheep that are suffering
from common winter ailments la a
purgative. Few flock owners appre
ciate tbe value of epeom salts or pure
raw Unseed oil In reducing fever and
Inflammation. If It is advisable to give
sheep a stimulating medicine of any
kind a purgative Is the most beneficial.
One of tbe most insidious winter ail
ments Is a cold. A cold at tne begin
ning des not produce any serious all
tueut, but as it gets a gradual foothold
it develops Into more serious ailments
that use up tbe body tissues and weak
en the whole system of the affected an
imal. Catarrh, that follows a severe
cold, consists of liitlaiumatiou of tbe
mucous membrane of tbe throat, nos
trils, windpipe anil sinuses of tlie bead.
In case the disease gets thoroughly es
tablished good nursing, comfortable
bousing and nutritious food will tielp
to give the animal tlie necessary vitali
ty to regain its uornial condition. This
la tbe only successful method of treat
lug colds aud catarrh.
Few flock owuers renlize tbe tremen
dous losses incurred by parasites dur-
! ing the winter. As a rule, these exter
nal parasites are unusually active dur
I lug tbe winter. The dense fleece of the
I sheep is an ideal phu-e for them to live
I and reproduce In great numbers. As
the parasites multiply the sheep be
come restless aud begin to rub against
the corners of tbe feed racks and par
titions In tbe barns. There Is but one
method or treatment, und that is to
eradicate the mil. If any of tbe ani
mals show Indications of being affect
ed with the trouble in the fall they
should tie dipped before tbey are put
Into winter quarters, if the barn and
feed rucks become infested much trou
ble will le encountered in cleaning out
the pests There la no danger In dip

they hiv dry.

DISEASES OF HOGS.
Worms and Lack of Mineral Matter

Is prevailing all other epidemics to
wblcb swine are subject are apt to b
classified as bog cholera. Here. Is an

One day a hurry up call was re
ceived from a farmer wJoe bogs were
dying from supiosed cholera. Of 300
bend but fifty were left, and the ex
ternal appearance of these d'd not In
dicate cholera. The adviser bad a sick
one killed and Immediately made a
postmortem examination. The vital
organs were found to fce In a healthy
condition, but the intestines were full
of worms. Mr. Orannls advised a
vermifuge for expelling the worms and
the feeding of a mixture of limestone
screenings, rock pbospbate and wood
ashes. This advice waa followed, and
no further loss of pigs followed. Thla
advice is Invaluable to the bog raiser.
Worms and lack of mineral matter are
two great causes that contribute to a
bad physical condition, which roakea
plirs susceptible to any disease that
may come along, and If tbey die In any
number It la called cholera.
WARDING OFF CHOLERA.
Prevention of Disease In the Hog Herd
Better Than Treatment.
There Is u farm In central Ohio
which Is noted for Its One hot;s. There
are always from liK) to 3u0 good pork
ers on it. says the Kiinn uud Fireside.
Choleru has raged all uhout It bur
there has never been a case on tbe

One duy a neighbor came wandering

The Yorkshire breed of hogs bad
Its origin in England, where It is
very popular, aa It also la In Can
ada. It being raised almost to tne
exclusion of other breeds. The
Yorkshire came to the United States
about twenty-five years ago and is
recognised as one of the best of the
bacon producers. The sows are
prolific and are excellent mothers.
Butchers who cater to the best
trade pay a premium for well fitted
bacon hogs. The Yorkshire boor
here shown waa champion of nla

pos, would you?" "No. of course not."
"Well, then why come into my fields
when you come from a farm that's In
fected with cholera? We are always
glud to lie neighborly, but we can't af
ford to pay for culls with our herd of
bop " The neighbor admitted that
this position was correct and weut
away feeling perfectly satisfied.
These lm;s ruu In pastures, but tbe
pastures are exceptionally situuted.
The Minnesota sanitary board recom
mends that when cholera rages tbe
boirs be kept lu smalt, dry pens.

when be crosses your Hue fence.' Dis
infect the troughs dally with a 5 per
cent solution of carbolic acid. No bog
cafl legally be taken from nny stock
yard except for slaughter, and breed
ing bogs when shipped should, of
course, be crntod and kept out of the
stock yards. And when one is brought
on the farm from outside It should be
kept by Itself for at least two weeks.
It will pay to put a boy out with a
gun during daylight hours to shoot at
and kill if possible every pigeon, crow,
mourning dove and English sparrow
in sight. Tbey all carry germs from
farm to farm. And don't let the bogs
drink from running streams or surface
water originating outside tbe farm.
