Oregon's Wild Cattle.
It Is not generally known that in several
localities in this state there are animals
tunning wild which have descended from
domestic ancestors. In Pacific, Chehalis
and Mason counties there is a remnanc of
a herd of wild cattle which have roamed
through the woods and over the prairies
of that portion of tbe state for years.
Many years ago a military post was main
tained on Gray's harbor, and adjacent to
this post was a large amount of cleared
land which was cultivated by the soldiers
as a farm.
The troop owned a large number of cat
tle, which pastured on part of the garrison
ranch. The pofet was suddenly abandoned
for some reason, and the soldiers found it
impossible to drive their cattle with them.
They were left in the pasture adjoining the
fort and were uncared for. There were no
settlements, or next to none, on the harbor
or in Chehalis valley at that time, conse
quently the cattle roamed undisturbed
where they pleased.
Notwithstanding the scanty fare which
they often fonnd, and the depredations of
the black wolves that then infested the
woods along the coast, the cattle increased
in numbers very rapidly and proved a
source of constant annoyance to early set
tlers. Fences were broken down, crops de
stroyed and tame cattle coaxed oil to the
woods. Many of the animals were killed
by parties organized to exterminate them,
and the remainder of the herd has been
driven well up into the skirts of the Olym
pics and into the coast range east and
south of Gray's harbor. Snohomish (Or.)
A One Sided Font Kare.
Uncle Jack Tyler is not given to "draw
ing the long bow," but the other day we
caine near losing faith in hini. Quite a
crowd at the Alliance store was telling
about the exploits of certain fat men. One
after another told a story, and, as is usual
ly the case, each was a little stronger than
its predecessor. Uncle Jack stood by with
a crestfallen look on his face as he heard
these tales, which he had no hope of excel
ling. Finally he jerked up his suspenders,
braced himself, and with a look of dogged
determination on his face began as fol
lows: "That reminds me of a man I once
knew who weighed 300 pounds. One day
standing in a crowd he bantered a slender
six footer for a foot race. His proposition
not being promptly accepted, he proposed
to take an ordinary size man on his shoul
ders and make the race with this addition
al burden, and, for a fact, gentlemen, he
beat the race by several feet. It's a fact.
Will swear to it."
When Uncle Jack finished, the most ex
perienced liars in the crowd looked hacked,
and some of his friends walked silently and
sadly away, meditating on the disastrous
effects of bad association on a pure char
acter. When they had got about fifty
yards away Uncle Jack called out, "Say,
there, I forgot to tell you that the man
who was beaten was one legged," and then
he smole a smile that could be heard to the
next corner. Waynesboro (Ga.) True Citi
zen. Snakes Waste Little Time Eating.
A serpent will go for weeks, sometimes
even for months, without feeding. Then
it may take three rabbits or ducks, one
after the other, at a single meal, and after
ward become torpid while digestion pro
ceeds. When, after a sufficient period of
fasting, it gets disposed to eat, and a rab
bit happens to be introduced into its cage,
it may plainly be seen that the rabbit's
presence is quickly noticed by it. The
snake will begin to move slowly about till
it has brought its snout opposite the rab
bit's muzzle. Then, in an instant, it will
seize the rabbit's head in its month, si
multaneously coiling its powerful body
around it and crushing it to death at once.
The action is so instantaneous that it is
impossible for the rabbit to suffer. Cer
tainly, it can suffer no more than when
killed by a poulterer. The snake does not
immediately uncoil its folds, but continues
for a time to hold its victim tightly em
braced, sometimes rocking itself gently to
and fro. Then it slowly unwinds its huge
body and once more takes the rabbit's
head in its mouth and swallows it. Quar
Superstitions About ltread.
In Brittany, when a housewife begins to
knead dough she makes a cross with her
right band, the left being placed in the
trough. If a cat enters the room it is be
lieved the bread would not rise. It is sup
posed that certain women can cause the
dough to multiply itself. On the coast of
the channel the dough is adjured to imi
tate the leaven, the miller, and the baker
and to rise.
The oven is a sacred object and connect
ed with crowds of superstitions. The oven
is dedicated, with ceremonies; in certain
places of Brittany the wood is watered
with blessed water. Bread must not be'
cooked on certain days, as on Holy Friday
(in Brittany), or during the night of All
Saints', when the ghosts would eat it.
Farming Jry Electric Motive Power.
Not long ago a writer pointed out the
great desirability of employing electricity
as a general motive power in agricultural
work, and showed how, by the use of the
electric motor, larger crops could lie sown
and harvested than are now possible and
at a greatly reduced cost. Tbe truth of
these statements has been emphatically
verified by the results of experiments car
ried out tinder the supervision of Professor
A. A. Denton. Professor Denton states
that in operating a five horse power motor
the anticipated difficulty with the movable
wire connection of the motor to the dyna
mo was found to lie inappreciable, and in
actual practice tbe motor easily moves the
trolley line as it progresses over the field.

The following story is told of Professor
Smyth, the famous Bowdoin instructor,
who was an enthusiast in the building of
the Bowdoin schools. When the present
High school building was in course of con
struction he haunted it at all hours. One,
night in a violent thunderstorm his fears
lest damage might be done led him to seek
tbe new building. There, prowling alone
in the debris of the cellar, he fell into the
well lately dug. He escaped, but by so
near an approach to a miracle that the
boys always said that be happened to have
a piece of chalk in his pocket, and so worked
his way out by calculus. Philadelphia
What Is Iron Knst?
Professor Liversedge, of Sydney, says
that iron rust is usually considered to be
an hydrated sesquioxide of iron, but on
examining a very large narnber of speci
mens of rust from many different places
and formed under a great variety of con
ditions he found that in almost every in
stance the rust contained more or less
magnetic oxide; in fact, iu some cases the
rust, though presenting the usual rust
brown color and appearance was when
powdered wholly attracted by a magnet.
