Hay Ile tbo I,u.it Grent Drlre Acroaa Stntca from thc 1110100 Aortlm eat. J. I. Carson, a woll-knorwn ehcep flrover, was lately in Portland pre parlng to etnrt "on tho trall" with E.800 yearllng wcthers, purchosed in Morrow county. Ile said ho would llkc to buy nbout 0,000 more, but re marked: "Hiey ai"e holdlng 'cm too high for mc. I nm wilUng to pay $2.23 D he-od for wethers, and $2.75 for cwes, but enstcrn Oregon sheepmen thlnk they are worth moro, bo wo can't trado," Mr. Carson, reports the Mornlntj Oregonlnn, Baid he would stort his big flock carly in May, Just as soon os tho ehcep had been ehorn. Ile would probably ehip by traln from Ileppner to Huntington, and ferry noross the Enako rivor near tho tcr mlnua of the Orcgou Itailroafl and Nnvigntlon. Uo had not yet solved the problein ns regnrds crosaing Wy omlng, ns the ncw.quarantino law of that stpto wn framed to prcvent ehccp "trnlling" ncross ita Innda. Uo was thlnking, therefoTe, of spendlng tho Bummer and fall ln tho Wood river mountains, and wotild decide in tho rnoantime how to invado Wyom ing. IIo thought lt would bo the laat band of Bhecp "trnilcd" across tho etate of Idaho, os tho Snakc river plalns oro now nearly all olalmed for rnngo, and tho water hns been about nll taken up. In ono locality ho will have a 5-mUo drlvo betwccn water lng placcs, nnd as six miles n day is a fair dny's travel, tho eheep will havo to go without water for four days on a stretch. IIc will drlvo over thls region in the nlght time, as tho weather will bo .too hot to engblo tha nnlmnls to trnvcl without water. Tho country along there ls sage-brurih and eand, and great care will havo to be cxerolsod ln order to avoid loslng sheep. ITo will provido tho band with 20 bclls, he says, and by counting thcse nnd the blnok shcop frequontly the men will bo nble to misa any largo buneh tliat might bo lefi behlnd. "Traillng sheep ncross Oregon, Ida ho and Wyomlng used to bo a pic nic," Mr. Carson sayB, "when tho country waa open, but now we cx pect more or less trouble from pcoplo who olaim tho grass all along tho routo. Wo can hunt and flsh while tho fihecp aro renting dnring tho heat of tlio day, and our frcquent chango of location crentcs perpetual novelty. Onoo in awlillo somo irato farmer or cattleman gets after ub, fearing our flocks will eat hiB prrves nll up before wo got by, but wo have thus fnr ovolded any Borious trouble, and wo hopo to pull through without any ln this our lnst traillng venturo noross Idaho." Mr. CarBon has been purchnBing Orcgou sheep for tho "trall" for qulte a number of ycnrs, ho Bayn, but never had to pay as much for them ns now. "Fivo ycara ago," ho sald, "I bought at tho yoarlings I wantod at $1 a head ln castcrn Orcgon, and drovo them through to Contral City, Nob whcro I had them fed on corn that cost elght centa a bushol, and on hay nt $2 a ton, dellvcred. And yct our flrm mado no money out of tho trans nctlon just cnmo out oven. Wo hopo to mnke money now." "Dklayb Ahf. DANOEItOUS."
