NEW SETTLERS WANT NAME
FOR THEIR HOME DISTRICTS—
pleased to see the movement started
W E this are week
for the naming of several new dis
tricts on the Owyhee project. Here we have a
new country growing up, and an opportunity to
give each district a truly distinctive name which
will mean something. It is likely that these names
will still he used a hundred years from now.
In other pails of the country we have the King-
man Kolony district, Owyhee, Oregon Trail, Ar
cadia, Cairo and many others. Just how each dis
trict was named would make a story in itself; but
it is just as important that these new districts be
properly named. A meeting has been called for
Saturday evening, February 27 in the city hall lo
discuss the matter. All interested new settlers are
invited to attend and put their favorite name be
fore the group.
Several different names have already been
suggested: Imperial Valley, Mountain View,
Mountavista, Morgrow, Fertile Gulch, Lucerne,
Nyssa Heights . . . and others. One road in the
roject is now known as Yakima boulevard;
P b< ecause
several former residents of Yakima are
living along this road.
When a country is new, it is so easy to name
each district in accordance to its physical char
acteristics. After some hideous name has been
tacked on and used for awhile, it is next to im
possible to change it. You new settlers get to
thinking about a name for your district. If you
care to, you can send your suggestion to the
Journal and w.e will see that it is presented at the
meeting February 27th. Better yet, plan to attend
in person and help make history.
DON’T LET YOUR DOG
BECOME A SHEEP KILLER—
HE killing of 68 lambs, the mutilating of
several others, with a resultant loss of ap
proximately $600 at the Chas. Marshall ranch
short time back has brought up the question of
stray dogs and the license system. It is obvious
that something should be done to prevent these
things, as they have a habit of happening several
times every year.
Sheep are easy prey for dogs and it is cur
ious thing that the most damage is usually done
by stock dogs, which work faithfully attending
stock in the day, but gang up on their charges at
night, generally in some other flock than their
master’s. A dog usually stalls his career of crime
in fun, ganging up with other dogs to worry
stock. Once started the only sure cure is lead
Bird dogs are rarely stock killers, especially in
a country where game birds abound, as the sport
of hunting birds is more alluring to them tnan
any other sport.
The best way to keep a dog from becoming a
killer, is to tie Shep up at night. If he is missing
from the ranch or home, examine his mouth for
traces of wool when he returns. If he has started
his career of stock killing, it is not often that a
cure is effected; and in that case the only way to
save yourself and your neighbor from serious
loss, is to keep him tied up . . . or shoot him. It
sounds callous, but so is the loss of 68 sheep in

In order to check the floods, a flood of checks
will be required from Uncle Sam.
There were two sides to the maritime strike,
but no winning side.
Still unaware as to whither we are going, we
are still blithely on the way.
Evidently at issue is the question whether or
not the supreme court is supreme.

Not that it matters, but our enjoyment of a
