Dr. Lytle, state-veterinarian, who lias
returned from Heppner, where he was
called to investigate the mortality
among sheep flocks, reports that death
was due partly to alkali ami lupine pois
oning. The wet springs and the dry
fnll. which cnnieH ubniit nnce nverv snv
en years, has made everything dry and '
dusty so that when the sheep were
brought down from the mountains by
the old trail, the first to come down got
the green forago and stuffed them
selves. This was also one of the causes
of the unusually heavy mortality. Al
together about 1,000 head of sheep were
lost, according to Dr. Lytic s estimate.

ers of this district to Dr. Hector Mac
pherson of the Oregon Agricultural col

ed the fact that the great handicap in
the work of Oregon potatoes lies in the
lack of standardization of varieties

1 could have bought a solid gold nose
ring with a diamond set in it as big as
a hen egg if I had all the money I have
squandered on gopher traps, cott'ee pots,
false teeth, nursing bottles, horne lini
ment aud lightening rods in the past ten
years, and we have all had our pictures,
enlarged seven times until the attic
won't hold any more. So now I take a
spell of hydrophobia whenever I see an
agent of any kind, nod my mother takes
puins that I shouldn't see anything that
excites mo for fear that I might chaw
the hind leg off of the diuing room tab
le and damage its usefulness, if I just
let myself go.
However, an ageut got past her about
three weeks ago and as I came down
stairs sharpening my teeth with a file
I inquired if it wo'uid be ull right with
her if I'ejected the person occupying a
prominent position on our best sofa in
the front room. She said, no, that this
was a nico young man with a sick wife,
and that- if he were a fraud that she
woultl uever beg for the life of another
agent, and as 1 dearly love nice young
men with sick wives, very, very sick
wivesy.l let him live,
He professsd to be a, photographer,
and carried, about with him what had
the-appearance of t camera, but I am
no judge of such .matters, and for all. I
know it may have been a can of axle
grease done up in a black rag. Ho also
carried a' sack in which he put his
plunder, being perfectly willing to take

I protested against having our pictures
taken, but he said how sweet the moth- "

her dear hands folded, across her bow- .

drooling nver my chin like a cat that'
has broken a 'front teotu, so 1 told him
to go ahead. .. ? "v.,

he took"-'tSe house, with his can of.
axie grease wrapped in a black rag, then '
he '..'relieved" us bf $1.25, which was
half his bill and said he would come
back in three days with the finished
pictures. He camo back, all right
enough, but without the pictures. Said'
he stubbed hi-s toe or something and:
couldnjt finish them up. This time he

wasted a bucket of uran trying to lure't
her up to his old can . of axle grease,
w rapped in a black rag. He took two:
dozen eggs at 40 ccats per dozen, a;
small chunk of butter and his dinner
"ou account." It was rather a gootli
dinner, too, but I didn't eat much be-1,
cause I had just -received a letter V
wanted to be miserable about so I spent'
the time praying that sometime in the
afternoon he would ease off converea:
tion. so I could read the letter seven;
times more. But he stayed three hours
and told us all about his dog, his grand-;
mother, his great uncle's toe nails, and;
what a fine, large, elegant reputation
he bud ns a photographer and so on "ad.
nauseam. ' '
The third time he came without the'
pictures we had the woodsaw, and it 's
my motto never to bear but one kind,
of trouble at a time, so we let him sort,
of fade away, without much in the way'
of greeting or farewell. But I'll tell
you right now that if another perambu-1
lating fraud gets into this house again
he will first have to -show me his license,
to fish and hunt, his marriage certifi-:
cate, his naturalization papers, his dis
charge from the army and a receipted
bill from his corn doctor. Then if he
successfully passes this test I shall put
him head first in the vinegar barrel for
an hour and a half, after which I shall
run him through the sausage grinder,
boots and all, and then, if it seems that
some of his natural crookedness has
beeu eliminated, we will talk business.
