(Special Correspondence.) Xolin, May 16. H. M. Culter of Holdman, who Is spending Sunday In our hamlet, reports that the condition of wheat in that locality Is much better than It Is in this vicinity. While the wheat is not so advanced, yet it Is more vigorous and better stooled. He also reports that squirrels are do ing much damage especially on fields bordering unplowed land. The wheat In this locality Is show ing the effects of the drought as the , soil is nearly dry down as deep as plowed. This, together with the dam age by squirrels and worms does not encourage a Taft smile on the farm ers' faces. Spring Plowing Expemdve. The farmers are nearly done sum mer fallowing. The unusually dry ground and the high price of feed have made spring plowing very ex pensive and only the high price of wheat encourages a profit. Many homesteaders pre taking ad vantage of the new law and are fil ing on adjoining tracts. This is a good law, as It gives the homesteader at least more grazing land, which Is needed on all these ranches. Personals. Clinton Bissett filed on a homestead southeast of here. Charles Frederick, with a $9000 drill outfit is working hard to get wa ter on the Dellwo ranch. With such an outfit success is assured. Ed McCutchen and John McCIel lan added to their homestead under the new law. Mrs. Steele and Mrs. Fisher are having splendid success In hatching young turkeys. They look forward to Thanksgiving Day with a growing appetite. The farmers union Is growing stronger each meeting. AVill Invest Here. T. F. Lane, who contracted for a farm in the Willamette valley, has de cided not to move to that country, but is Investigating some reul estate prop ositions near AVeston and Milton. Mr. Lane has lived in this county nearly all his life and for that reason this county stands uppermost in his mind. Heavy Winds Destructive. The hard winds have been very destructive from here north to tho state line. It has not always been the fault of the soil, or the manner of farming, but waste areas of sand and fine lava have blown over the plowed lands. The security of many farms depends upon the control of such waste lands'.' Taking on New Colors. Red, white and black are the pre vailing colors in this village. The warehouse Is adorned with a bright red. Mr.' Slusher has applied a coat of whitewash to his outbuildings and fences, and the O. R. & X. company has painted the bridge black. Who will be the next to please the eye and improve the appearance of Xolin? Public Sfliool Closes. The public school closed last Wed nesday with appropriate exercises. The large number of visitors, con sisting mostly of the patrons of the school, showed their great apprecia tion of the results accomplished by the school. G. W. Beatty, the prin cipal, urged the people not to be sat isfied with present conditions, but to press on for something better and to work for that purpose. After four years of faithful service the district has lost Mr. Hawks, who has contracted to tench at the Yoa kum school next year atan advanced salary over the wages received here.

TO mm GARDEN CITY LANDS ON nQME TEAM FOK 8 TO 2 Poor Showing of Indians Due to Lack of Practice One of Pendleton's Two Points Gained by Fluke Game is Pitchers Rattle up to Seventh 230 go to Walla Walla on Speciul Train Return Game is Promised. Lack of practice resulting In poor team work on the part of the Pendle ton Indians, allowed Walla Walla to romp away with yesterday's ball gamo to the tune of 8 to .A fluke on the part of the Garden City aggregation enabled the Indians to get one more than the' single ace to which they were In reality entitled. The feature of the game up to the seventh Inning was the pitcher's bat tle between Hutchinson of Pendleton and Aubln for Walla Walla, and the errors on the part of Pendleton play ers which allowed five runs despKo the fact that Hutchinson had held the opposing batters down to one hit. In the seventh Inning Hutchinson evi dently gave up hope and in that canto, and the one following, he was landed on for five hits, two of them being good for three stations each. Aubln was in fine form yesterday, 15 of the Indians fanning the air in a vain endeavor to connect with his benders. He only allowed two hits during the entire game. Despite the howling of yesterday morning's wind, about 250 Pendle tonlans went over In the excursion. The game was played at Meadow park, five miles out from Walla Walla and was witnessed by a crowd of seven or eight hundred. A return game Is to be played with Walla Walla in this city in the not distant future and if the Pendleton players can be persuaded to take enough Interest In the game to get out and practice, there Is a , fair chance that victory will perch on the Indian banner. - Who Cooked? A party of young men were camp ing, and to avert annoying questions they made it a rule that the one who asked a question that he could not answer himself had to do the cook ing. One evening, wh'.le sitting around the fire, one of the boys asked, "Why Is it that a ground squirrel never leaves any dirt at the mouth of Its burrow?" "Why," he said, "because they al ways begin to dig at the other end of the hole." "But," one .asked, "how does he get to the other end of the hole?" "Well," was the reply, "that's your question."
