' Reports Not AU In. Reports from Scappoose, Doer Is land, Coble, Yankton and Warreu have not been received, but it is known that the workers in these dis tricts have bad a ready response from the people, and it is thought that when the reports are filed, each community wUl be proud of the re ord established. The results in St. Helens are most gratifying. Thursday morning $668 had been deposited to the credit ot the Salvation Army and several re ports had not been turned in. Dr Wade set the St. Helens quota at 1000 and he thinks the amount will be raised. He has the committees at work and believes that before to morrow night, the total amount will be subscribed.

Thh. will be the-c-.se if present plans work out. At the recent sale of Jersey cat tle on the famous Ed Cary farm la Yamhill county an average of $1109 per head was received for 33 bead. This was the highest average price ever paid ln public auction west ot the Rockies. This price, however, did not prevent County Agricultural Agent D. C. Howard from buying five head of the good ones. He bought Blossom's Rosalre, a wonderful young cow at $1600 and two of her excel lent daughters at $1200 and $130. A five-months old heifer calf out of one of these was bought by Hood Farms of Lowell, Massachusetts tor $2526 00. Mr. Howard also bought a pair of beautiful two-year-old heif ers for which he was forced to pay $1200 and $1000, making the five head cost him a total of $6200. 0t. These fine animals will be brought to Columbia county late this tall when Mr. Howard Intends to stock up a farm which he will probably operate between work hours.
