SHEEP MEN BRING
IN THEIR FLOCKS
MILD CLIMATE OF LOWER VALLEY
AND GOOD WINTER PASTOR
AGE IS ATTRACTIVE
The sheepmen* who have been up
in the mountains around Ellensburg
and farther up during the slimmer
months, and began working their
Hocks to the lower levels with the
coming of autumn, are now arriving
in the Horse Heaven hills adjacent
to this place, for the winter. The
mild temperature prevailing here all
winter and the excellent grazing is
very favorable to the wintering of
the aheep and bringing them out in
the spring in fine shape. The Un
derwood Sheep company ha* been
in the hills for some time with a
large flock, the Wenner Sheep com
pany arrived the first of the week
with a band of 2500 and Martin
Fieldsted will arrive with his hand
Ix'fore the end of the week. The
sheep will be sheared here next
spring and the fat sheep sold and
shipped to market from this place.
These firms made a large shipment
«»f 22 cars to the Chicago market
from this point season before last
but the mutton sheep are usually
sold in the Seattle market. The
opening up of the Swift plant at
Portland will also be a new market
for this product. Some very nice
profits have l)een made by the
sheep-raisers in recent years.

Ordering Lumber
Carelessy is neither good business nor good judgement. The. v
better lumber you buy the less waste there will be and the
less it will cost.
You can't get poor lumber here at all
We don t keep it and we don't try to sell you more than you
need, either. Bring in your plans and we will tell you how
much you need (or the job and sell you the lumber at a
square deal price. Thats all.
