The fead proposition Is becoming
such a serious one for farmers that-
many are shipping their cattle to Tort-J
laud. It seems that the big Portland
feed and grain houses are sending men
through tho valley buying up about all
the hay in sight and storing it, all of
which will tend for higher prices this
falL The opinion has been expressed by
a man conversant with the dairy and
cattle business, that with the hay stor
ed for higher prices, the farmer will
have no choice about keeping his cat
tle as the feed question this fall will
become too serious -a proposition. One
dairyman in Polk county has already
sold half-of his herd and train loads
of cattto are now being shipped to
the stock market every week from the
valley as far south as Eugene. The
buyers of hay who are storiug are pay
ing $23 .a ton.

The thief who stole the Steusloff car
Tuesday was wise enough not to drive
it into Portland. Tho car was found
by tho Portland police deserted near the
suburbs of th city. It seems the tMcf
went after the car of F. W. Spencer,
n.?ar tho bteusloff home. It happened
that Mr. Spencer not only had 'lis gar
age locked, but his car as well. The
thief pried off tho lock of the Spencer
garage,but could not get away with the
car. Hence lid did the next best thing
and stepped over to the Steusloff gar
age where he found both tho garago and
tu car uulockd.
Although somifit!me8 Salem prides it
self injicing the intellectual center of

the ht'art of the city .However, last ev
ening they received something of a
set back. Just as they were about to
leave town, a warrant was sworn out
against the wo husky gypsy men, who
seemed to be doing nothing and . de
pending on the women folks to do the
work. They were let off on $5 bonds
for their appearance this morning and
failed to appear. Tho complaint against
