Henry Knbli was in town Thursday
from his Applegate ranch. The «lay pre­
vious In- ami Jam« s Bnvkh y got in from
tin- l'p| er Applegate r ing«- 13 head of
beef cattle, tlu- l ist that thev will bring
down. Th* y will h ave their stock on
th* range until winter weather drives
them out. Mr. Knbli and Mr. Buckley
recoitlv placeil on their range B2 head of
cattle that the« pnrchasi-d of J. G. Marlin
and others of Antioch vicinity.
Knbli stated that none of tin- Apph gate
stockmen ha«l yet sold their lieeves,
holding them in their tine alfalfa pastur­
es until a better price was offered. As
the number of beef cattle held by himself
and neighbors, Mr. Knbli gives th«-follow­
ing estimate: Janies Buckley, 63; Henry
D. Knbli, ¡1.5; R. Catm-ron, 10; Miles
Cantrall, 40; Andrew Cantrail,75; Arthur
Kleiiihammer, 50 making a total of 305
head. There is nearly as many more
held by other Applegate stockmen, mak­
ing a bunch of « attic that w ill be a good
buy to some dealer, as the Applegate
range has a long established reputation
for turning off beef equalled by but few­
ranges in Oregon.

Cause of Lockjaw.
Lockjaw, or tetanus, is caused by a
bacillus or germ which exists plentifully
in street dirt. It is inactive so long as
exposed to the air, but when carried be­
neath the skin as in the wounds caused
by percussion caps or by rusty nails, and
when the air is excluded the germ is
roused to activity and produces the most
virulent poison known. These germs
may be destroyed and all danger of lock­
jaw avoided by applying Chamberlain's
Pain Balm freely as soon as the injury is
received. Pain Balm is an antiseptic ami
causes cuts, bruises and like injuries to
heal without maturation and in one third
the time required by the usual treatment.
It is for sale by City Drug Store.
