There Jias probably never before in
' the last five or six years been such a
scarcity of beef cattle as exists in this
county today. By beef cattle is meant
Mock fattened and ready for the mar
ket. Local- butchers say that it is .al
most a impossibility to secure w,hat
they wish for the home -trade, andj as
a , consequence, there is now a very
email imruint r.f 1 rc c Kf tliinndl
from this tqwn. Prices range, from 6
to 7 cents per pound, live 1 weight,
wKtch is considerably higher than hns
lnn paid in several years, yet it ii
. almost an impossibility to get enough
to supply the demand at those priced,
And yet the end hi not in sight, butch
ers and buyers are claiming that it
will only be a matter of a very short
time until prices; -will take another ad
vance. :. S '
While ; sheep and hogs on foot are
bringing a fair iprice. it as much easier
to fill the demand, and butchers expe
rience tio great' difficulty in securing
what is needed for local consumption
atrd also for shipping.
The farmer who rmw ow'm a few
head of hogs or a beef or two is a ; very
fortunate individual, indeed. The time
is drawing neat when the successful
farmer will be he who raises a little of
everything, and jdoes not confine his
efforts to j any j one single product
Then, for instance, if wheat be low, .lie
can dispose of a few hogs or a beef,
and manage to hold on to his wheat
until better prices prevail.

not provide for tihe filling of the posi
tions for the five months preceding

the places immediately, in order to have
the roads and bridges of the various
districts properly . cared for. Other

Farmer . Requested to Promptly No
tify II. ( B.i Thielsen of the Num
ber of Cows Whose Cream
. - ,1 Tliey Will Contribute.
Xow that T. S- Townsend. of Port
land, has decided to establish a cream
ery in' this city, the responsibility of
the farmef- ia this connection has just
begun, but ' Jiudging, from the remark
able interest that has been evinced on
the. plan isinie it was first suggested,
leaves no room for doubt that the farm
ers will not ' faithfully and readily dis
charge whatever responsibility they
may assume. : : '.'
Before returning to Portland on
Thursday 1 afternoon, Mr. : Townseml
requested j that the farmers, residing
within ten or twelve miles of Salem,
should leave their names together with
the number f cows whose cream they
can supply Sor. the creamery and the
distance they are located from Salem,
with Henry: B. -Thielsen, secretary of
the Salem' , Chamber of Commerce.
Mr. To w1! send is anxious that this be
done at the earliest convenience for he
will visit the city within a few days
when he. hopes to be able to gather
some idea of : the amount of cream that
will be available -'for his plant. At the
same time he desires to make arrange
ments with lical parties or farmers for
the collection of the cream,, His plan
is, to establish circuitous routes among
the farmers for gathering the crea.n,
each route to cover about 28 miles.
Mr. Thielsen. tire energetic secretary
of Salem's icommercial organization.
labored faithfully to secure this. institu
tion for i Salem and he is naturally
pleased with the result of his efforts
which have borne fruit so quickly. -He
said yestefday afternoon that the success
of the movement was made possible by
the hearty co-operation of Salem's
grocery men, eadh of whom personally
worked amrjng his farmer-customeri
and aroused a wonderful interest in
the project. '; Mr. Thielsen. is confident
that with; such loyal co-operation, many
more manufacturing institutions, tor
which there lis a wide field in Salem,
can bsecured. ?'
Chronicle, of The Dalles, in its. issue
of February 7th: "If the order of the
Artisans were not benefited by the ad
dress of Rev. G. W. Grannis in its
behalf last night at the Congregational'
church, it would be unaccountable, for
a more effective and fascinating, speak
er would be hard to find. ' While lcav
irig out not a jot .or a tittle of the facts
necessary tq a thorough understand
ing of the workings of the order, he
clothed therein such an attractive man
ner that the triteness of the -bare facts
and figures was lost and the audience
was interested throughout. Mr. Gran
nis is witty iand at the same logical.
The audience should have been much
larger to do justice to the speaker.
) l believe the first test of a truly great
man is his ltumility, says Ruskin. I do
not mean by humility, doubt of his
own power for hesitation in speaking
his opinion; but a right understanding
of the relations between what he can
do and say and the reft of the world's
sayings and I doings. AH great - roer
not only know their business, but usu
ally that they know; and are not onlj
right in. then main opinions, tut they
usually know that they are right ir
them--only jthey do not think mucr
of themselves on that account. Arn
olfo knows that he can build a good
dome at Florence; Albert Durer writes
calmly to one who had- found fault
with his w0rfc, "It cannot be better
done;" ,Sir Isaac Newton knows that
he has worked out a problem or two
'hit' would have puzzled anyone 'else-only-
they ,do not expect their fellow
men, therfofe. to fall down an d wor
ship them. .They have a curious - un
der sense of powerleissness. feelinp
that the greatness is not in them, b'u
through thefn they could not do or tx
anything else than God made them.
And they .see something divine and
God-made ill every other man they
meet, and are endlessly, foolishly, in
credibly: mefciful. The slightest mani
festation of 1 jealousy or self-complacency
is enough to mark a second-rite
character of; the intellect. '

They Live on an Island in Hudson
Bay, and ' Make Homes of .
, Whales Skulls. .
The strangest aniliropological "find"
recorded in the iast decade , of the
nineteenth century will soon be an
nounced by the Ahnerican Museum of
Natural History. j.It as nothing less
thanthe discovery, on a lonely island
in Hudson bay, of a lost tribe of Es
quimaux a community which has
been without intercourse with, other
representatives of the humans species
for centuries, and w'hose members
ftever saw a white man until ) a few
months ago. They are still in ithe
Stone Age, knowing o metals; they
grow no plants, and their houses are.
built of the skulls of whales.
The home of hj Strange - tribe,
which seems to have been cut off in
some unknown manner from the rest
of the world ever jso long ago, is on
Southampton Island, at pice of -water-girt
terra firma nearly as big as the
state of Maine, situated at the north
end of Hudson bay. Apparently the
people have dwelt r there ever since
pre-Columbian tin'ies, and today they
live and subsist in exactly the same
way as they did then. Having been
isolated'for so long a period, it is nat
ural that they should exhibit many
peculiarities most interesting to the
student of , ethnology, and these are
illustrated by a uperb collecuon ot
utensils, weapon of the chase and oth
er objects, which, through the agency
of Dr. Franz Boas,' has been fetched
to New York tri a whaling Vessel and

The houses of skulls above men
tioned, more properly described as
huts, are built by putting together the
great jaws of right whales, which arc
covered with skins. In the middle of
this primitive dwelling is an flevated
place on which ! stands the inevitable
stone lamp chief; essential of - every
Esquimau household. Indeed, the
whole life of the family may - be said
to revolve about this lamp, the inmates
depending upon it for their very ex
istence. Without it they woyjd be
unable to occupy 'so frigid arid other
wise' uninhabitable a region. It is
employeti for lighting, heating, cook
ing, melting snow, drying clothes and
in certain arts. Yet it is notliing more
than an open dish of whale oil or seal
oil, with a wick of dry moss staked
in fat. i '. , J.
The whale is the chief means ofj sub
sistence of this- ttrangc peopled who
hunt the mighty cetacean in skin boats
much bke those tised by other Escui
n.ux. It is iront the x- wlrale 'that
the wlvalebone of commerce is "ob
tained, and this material they use in
a variety of surprising ways, making
even their cups and buckets of it by
bending it into rounded sharies and
sewing on the bottoms. iMany of
their implements i are 'of . whatebone,
and from the ame stuff they manu
facture toboggan-like .sleds. They
make sledges of pairs of walrus tusks
for runners and ieer antlers for cross
pieces. It would ibe hard to find more
daring hunters than they are, the
seal, the walrus and the wary caribou
contributing" 4o their game bags.
The tribe comprises only fifty-eight!
individuals, about equally divided as
to sexes. Its members speak a dialect
peculiar to themselves and quite un
like that employed by other. Esqui
maux. A strait" about thirty miles
bread separates Southampton- Island
from the western shore of Hudson bay,
where there is a cjplony of Esquimaux,
and once in a very long while it freezes
clear across-i Thii happened, it is said,
seventy-five years fa-go. and then a-few
banters came over from the island to
the mainland, where they were much
surprised to encounter other human
beings like themselves, having doubt
less imagined thait they were the only
people in existence. This is now a tra
dition , with the ' natives on the main
land, who say ! that the strangers
brought two sledges with them. Aut
went away againj and never returned.
Neither before nor since has any news
come from the lost tribe. ; ,
On Southampton Island there is no
soapstone. which among the Esqui
maux elsewhereSs the favorite material
for pots and kettles; hence the people
of the lost tribe 1 are obliged to make
head and spread all over her scalp, face,
and forehead, forming one mass of sores.
You. can realize how much she must have
suffered, when she scratched at times till
the blooil ran intermingled with water.
Our family "doctor's, treatment' proved
ineffectual, aa the disorder, instead of
abating, developed more. We then
stopped all medical treatment, and com
, menced with Ccticcrx Uemkdiks. Wre

: traces of the eczema disappeared, the
skin and scalp were left perfectly clear ;
smooth, and she was entirely cured.

bkod. In the same way they manu
facture their lamps; and this fact is an
other evidence of the proloaiKfd isola
tion of the community describrd, inas
much as Esquimaux, where they can
obtain no soapstone in their own
neighborhood, will pay any - prjee to
get it from some other more fortunate
tribe. Someu'mes they will make trips
lasting several years in quest of this
material, which- is of rare occurrence,
and not cf ten - discovered., in- pieces
large enough for tamps of pots.
The hunters of SouthamptHi Island
arm their harpons with tlint points,
and their arrows- Irkewise. Tliey make
these points by, chipping the flint with
one instruments. In tlicar i hunting
pouches they always carry a number of
fresh arrowhead's and spcarleads to
provide for emergencies. Of course,
never having seen a white man. until
recently, and having been cut off for
centuries from alj communication with
other tribes of their own people, they
are pot acquainted with tobacco--a.
weed, of which the Esquimaux' in gen
eral arc exceedingly fond. Neither do.
they possess any article whatever that
has been inlroducd into America sine;
the' landing of Columbus. Tjc they
