FINE SHORTHORN HERD.
Three miles west of Corvallis, Ore.,
is the Oak Creek Farm of John M. Os
burn, where he has some of the best
Shorthorn cattle to be found on the
coast. At the head of the herd is
Medler 123532, out of imported Lord
Nonpareil used by Cruickshank on his
world-renowned herd. Medler's mother
is Touch-me-not, out of Gay Monarch,
that took the first premium at the Chi
cago world's fair. Mr. Osburn has 18
cows and 25 calves of the Butterflies,
; Bates and Rose of Sharon families.
He recently sold to Charles B. Ladd
four bulls and two heifers; to the agri
cultural college, one heifer; to Burk
hart, Brownsville, one bull; to Stump,
Monmouth, one bull; and he is about
to bring out from the east a $500 bull
The Albany, Ore., Democrat says Mr.
Bates has a new incubator, but he will
have to get a rustle on to beat a couple
of women across the river. Recently
one of their hens which was setting on
13 eggs deserted the nest and the eggs
became cold. The women took them,
put them in hot water and then well
covered in a basket and went to bed
with the eggs between them. By morn
ing there were 12 fine chickens chirp
ing under the covers. The ladies de
sire that their names be not given.
