Tho opportunity of entering sheep
club work with orphan lambs pre
sents Itself to manyiboys and girls in
Klamath county this year. Where
largo bands of sheep1 are lambing,
tho orphans or "bummors" present a
problem tho solution of which is dif
ficult to thq owner. The Individual
caro that those lambs require cannot
bo given when orphans are numer
ous, consequently many are lost un
less somo way la provided, to feed and
care for them .
At vary little cost tbe boys and
girls in tho sheep districts can obtain
ono or more ot tbeso lambs to raise
for market purposes. Tho saving of
those lambs not only Increases the
production ot wool and mutton but
nets a good profit to the boys and
girls. Bach member ot the clubs is

Announcement was mado today by
thn Jool T. Ward & Co. agency that
tho southeast cornor of Seventh and
a 'Main streets Is to bo Improved at
onco by a threo-story class A struc
ture. This property was purchased
this week by Hart brothers, tho Cali
fornia restaurant men, from Fred L.
Houston, through tho Ward agency,
and marks another triumph for this
rosily firm, for It has brought to this
city real developers and not specu
lators. Yesterday Mr. Ward successfully
negotiated a termination ot tho lease
on the property bold by tho Western
Transfer company, landing that con-
corn, in tho room that Is to be vacated
by tho Martin 5, 10, IS and 25-cont
store. In addition ho purchased for
the llarts the lot on Oak strcot back
of the Dunham garage, to which the
two-story frame building now occu
pying tho Main street cornor will be
removed. It Is planned lo remodel
It into apartments.
H. J. Winters, who purchased,
through the "Ward agency, tho 40
feet adjoining, also announces that
ho will build at tho same tlmo Hart
brothers do and that his building will
bo at least two stories and possibly
throe. Mr. Winters plans on leaving
his present building just where it Is
until the foundation for his new one
is about completed, when ho will
move it to tho vacant lot just east of
hlB property, whoro it will remain
until ho can move into his now store.
With these Improvements and tho
proposed building to bo erected on
tho Brett corner Immediately across
the street, Seventh and Main will be
tho center of building activities this
summer and it will undoubtedly have
a stimulating effect on the property
further down the street. Tho Harts
leftiblsornIhg,"f or! pie. souhv H, H.
Hart will return wi,th bis family
within a few days and will remain on
the ground to superintend construc
tion work. No decision has been
reached as to what class ot tenants
will be sought for the new buildings.
Notwithstanding the long spell of
unfavorable weather, for poisoning
squirrels, the progress of tho cam
paign being waged against thorn can
be judged somewhat by tho amount
ot poisoned grain tMat has been used
to date. Approximately eight tons
ot poisoned grain has been dlstrl
buted and another largo batch Is bo
Ing prepared today. On account of
the delay in got ting sacks only a
limited amount ot grain has been on
salo at the various distributing
points. A supply ot sacks woro re
ceived yesterday, however, and with
in a few days' supplies will bo on
hands at all of tho' twons in tho
county where there is a demand, as
well as other, central points desig
nated by the committeemen in charge
of tho work in various communities.
A clean-up drive was put on yester
day in the Mills addition district.
Moro than 600 pounds'" ot poisoned
grain were usod. This dilvo was
made possible by the assistance, of
tho Southorn Pacific company, Klam
ath Development company, Klamath
Korporatlon, Elmer Appleguto, Nlt
schelm brothors, F. C. Mnrkqwardt
and Charles Eberleln.' These parties
furnished tho matorlal and labor for
tho drive. . l
The county post Inspector, Qrnnt
Nelson, has been kept busy since his
appointment the first of April. More
than 60 en sos havo b-'orTrofprrcd to
Mr. Nelson already. Theeo'bitve all
been investigated and doflnlto ar
rangements made for poisoning where
necessary. Mr. .Nelson will put a
new crew out on poisoning delin
quent lands tomorrow.

of a possible failure of the higher

tho institutions located at Eugene,

When a faculty resigns at tho col
lego or the unlvorsity, or tho normal,
