woro, sheop and goats 4,203,100,
nnd hor3C3 and cattlo 1,025,148.
Tho total rocolpta from grazing por

For tho proceeding year tho amount
wm $514,092.87.
During tho year Just closed tho
voport showH that 23,002 applicants
for pasturo woro approved, and of
these applicants 21,780 paid tho
foes,, nnd woro granted pormlts.
Thai -was 92 por cont. Last year
Micro woro 18,040 applications, and
111,593 pormlts or 92 por cont. Tho

Tho lucronso In tho numbor of
Htock on tho ranges for this year Is
tluo almost wholly to tho Increased

moan that tho pastures nro crowded
moro this yoar than Inst.
Tho total area of tho fonmtB
is far greater this year than last,
mid a greater numbor of stock can
'bo nceommodaiod without an ln
"crcjuio por noro. Tho aroa or tho
National Forost.1 of tho United
States and Alaska nmountH to 150,
000,000 acres, but stock Is not
pastured on all of tho forosls. In
hoiuo roglonri cattlo and horses pre
dominate, in others shaop and goats.
Tho natural conditions of tho land
throughout tho mountains of tho
Woutoru sUitos are such that tho
boundurl'B of tho National Forostu
of nucoHslty Include many opon
parks chiolly valuable for grazing.

Many stooktnon ilvlnic on tho

tholr own. but to reach It with stock
r. Is froiiuonlly nooowinry, or con
venient to drlvo across portions or
tho rorowU. To do this thoy uru rn
quired to obtain a permit, but no
chargv Is nuulu for It. This yoar
833 .such permits woro granted, and
510,807 horses and cattlo, and 2,051,
830 Hhoop and goal" crossed. Last
year 259 permits of that kind w ro
loaned and 12,020 horwes and cattlo,
nnd 092,540 Hhtwp oroosod.
Sometimes stookmon who llvo

them, allow their Uck to drift

lessly, negligently, or wilfully, It Is
considered trospiuw, and tho offender
h subject to a tine, and may also bo
liable to pay damage. Tho numbor
ot trespass canes this yoar was 183,
nnd 108 of those settled without go
ing to court, that Is, they paid tho
amount agreed upon as Just. Tho
remaining 15 had not yet settled at
tho closo of tho fiscal year, but It Is
believed that most of thorn will do
as tho others have done. There Is
Httlo disposition to go to law or
mako trouble over such matters.
The total damages collected for tres
pass for tho year was $5,570.
Another kind of permit lrf Issued
In cortnln cases. Sometimes a man
owns land Inside a forest, or partly
surrounded by it, and rather than
fence It to keep his Btock In, he
signs an ngreemont that If his stock
la allowed .to graze In tno lorcsc,
othor stock In tho forest may graze
on his land. Arrangements of that
kind aro frequent, anil are often vory
convonlont and satisfactory. He
Blmnly swaps his range for an equal
amount of grazing outsldo his linos,
and It Is all used In common. This
year 015 such pormlts wero Issued,
for 15.024 horses and cattle, and
182,022 sheep and goats. Last year
thore woro 244 similar permits, and
tho stock affected consisted of 18,
823 horses and cattle, and 118,400
sheep and goats.

Gallant Officer Says Girls May Wear

It Is not a penal offense for a
pretty young woman, with Bhapely
limbs, to walk tho stroots of Rock
away beach clad in a bathing suit,
cut low at tho top and high at tho
bottom unless "the act bo done with
criminal intent." This, after an ex
haustive research Into all tho author
ities, Is tho official finding of Cor
poration Counsel Ellison.
Tho opinion Is a knockout blow
for tho Rockaway Beach Taxpayors
association, which has been shocked
by throngs of pretty young women In
abbreviated bathing skirts walking
through tho town, admired by tho
men. '
Mr. Ellison, In addition to bolng a
great legal authority, has consider
able admiration for femlnlno beauty.
IIo says tho police havo no business
whatever to lntorfero with the shapo
ly bathers, and Intimates If tho mem

under tno circunuiuucos, a crime, ii
In some parts of Lane county tho
rhittlm bark craze of a few years
ago has about strlpp-d tho country
of tho available supply, but tho vl-,
inittf r.f rtnnilwnnd. In tho northern
part of tho county, a good deal lst
said to be left. Tho fact of tho pres
ent scarcity, of tho bark Is not vltalj
howovor, for tho reason that it aoes
not tako chlttlm long to grow again.
Along tho banks of the sloughs or
around tho fences tho brush will
spring up before tho rancher realizes
his good fortune that is if it has Been
plentiful In his section. It springs
from tho seed. Frequently If a treo
Is cut down tho next spring will
seo a clump of chlttlm spring up
around tho stump. This kind Is not
so valuable, howovor, as is tho tall
kind that grows In shaded forests.
At certain times, when tho sap is
running fast, nil tho bark may bo
stripped off tho trunk of a chlttlm
treo and tho tro will not be killed,
a second bark coming out nt once.
This is In Juno ns a rule. Dog
wood has tho Bamo quality.
It used to bo that men that made
their living gathering chlttlm bark
filled up their bags with dog wood
and alder ar woll . Tho local buyers
could get rid of it as chlttlm and did
not care. Often It Is said tho small
Jlmbs of tho chlttlm trees woro
broken up Into small blocks and sold
for tho bark.
