are very much Interested In Crater I-ako
Park and many of them were very much
disappointed that the appropriation for

they will work for a large sum next year.
It It considered a direct tlap at Ihe en

priation was cut down lo S00O. The
people ol Portland are fully
aware that Crater Lake la one ot the

from there- will visit the park during the

rancher wrltei asking Information con
cerning this country. He states that

acre farm where he can grow alfalfa,
hogs and chickens and probably keep a

From the number of Inquiries being

' LET US SHOW YOU WHY
Shortage of Beef in
WILL EFFECT PRICES
Range About Same as Last
Year With Prospects of
Average Hay Crop
Stockmen of thlt taction feel that this
la to be a protperont year for them.
While the scarcity of beef In the Last
hat nu direct hearing upon thlt country
yet in an indirect way It will effect the
price of Klamath county stock. Horace
Mitchell, in speaking ol the situation
"The shortage In the beef supply In
the East will have some effect upon the
local market, and I think that this la
going to be a good year for the stockmen
of this eectlon. Much of the beef In
Nevada and Utah that has beretoforo
been going to the Western markets will
go East because of the shortage and It
will retult In an Increase of the price of
'I Western beef. It Is also very prob
able that stock will be shipped to the
northern market thlt year ami this
will also make an Increase In the price."
In speaking of the range condition
Mr. Mitchell said, "I think the range la
about the tame aa it was last year. Stock
la looking pretty good and unless some
thing unusaal should happen the bay
crop will be np to the average."
