the soil is ready for the feod. Tins

from ten to fourteen feet long. Some
of the seeders have a disc nltneh

follow in the track of the die, thus
finishing up the plowing. It N then

is situated in what is known us the
Uuintilhi reservation ami is one of
the must productive pails of this pavt
of eastern or rather northeastern

appears to be more, compact and
heavier. In tlul section of tho coun

up by sipinllers wliij were biicd to
locate mi the land, thKc a homestead,
pre-emption or timber claim and then
the land was just kept for specula
tion and not cultivated, and the 'far
mers claim that the more tho land i
cultivated the better it yields. There
nre several drawbacks to the country,
one of which I have already men
tioned, and that is the scarcity of
water. 1 don't remember whether 1
mentioned this in my Knglets or in
my letters home but will add tint
there is but very little water in any

Overwhelming defeat for tho Inltla- friends here.
tlve measure by which it Is proposed
to revive horso racing la California,
permitting betting by the pari muluel
and auction pool methods, is predic
ted bore today at tomorrow's elec
tion. Although tho petition seeking
the restoration of racing boro more
signatures than any other measure
reaching the secretary of state, the
measure Is certain to be killed by
the women's votes. The women vot

racetrack betting! would be revived.
The racing amendment is further
hampered by lack of newspaper sup

measure Is not being advocated by
any daily publication in the state.

NEW ORLEANS, La., Nov. 4.
With everything ready for the ten
round battle here tonight between
Champion Ad Wolgnst and Joe Man
dot, the latter Is in the finest condi
tion of bis career for the fray and
has been made a favorite; by local
admirers. Many good Judges pre
dicted today that the title will
change, hands tonight, although the
bout Is a "no decision affair."
Wolgast apparently js not taking
the battle seriously and has declared
that, -lie Will dispose of Mandot so
as to leave no question as to tho
winner. The backers of Mandot,
however, are offering odds of 3 to
1 that Wolgast will not knock out
the New Orleans boy.

The country I have been describing
lies west of Pilot Rock and south of
Pendleton. After I had been at Mr.
MeGowan's n week my daughter anil I
took u trip over to Kastlaud, about
thirty miles from where I had been
stopping, to visit my son-in-law. J.
fanners have ta haul water for miles
to water all their stock inu that no
counts to some degree, fir Iho lack
of pennanent improvement n. the
owners of' tha.fnnu generally live
in the towns aiuT rent their fanns or
else put h(t,crop in and then leave
until harvest. I have een hut one

that she was going to school. Tint j
was the morning I was nt Kasllnnd. i
Mut there is one thing about this
country that speaks well for it and
that is it is very productive. There
is one more serious drawback to thisi
country bnxides the scarcity of water, I
and social privilege, and 'bat is the!
high winds they hae. I made five
