Phone Main 96 Where Prices Are Reasonable CATTLE GIVEN TO POUR THOISAND HEAD ARE . SCATTERED BY GOVERNMENT Presented to the Indians in Lieu of Money Due Thorn from the Sale of Rights of Way Across the Reserva tion Some Families Get As Many As 35 Head. Four thousand head of heifers have Just been distributed among the In dians on the Klamath reservation In southern Oregon, according to Dr. S. W. McCIure, who has just returned from there. As the northwest head of the bureau of animal industry the doctor was at the Klamatn agency to receive the cattle on behalf of the government. The animals were two and three years of age and consisted of Herefords and Shorthorns. They were furnished by William Hanley of Burns, he having been awarded the contract. Dr. McCIure says they formed a mighty fine bunch of live stock. The cattle were given to the In dians by the government In lieu of several thousand dollars which were due them from the sale of Indian lands, one of the famous southern Oregon road grants, having extended across the reservation. The officials In charge of the Indian department reasoned that the cattle would do the Indians more good than would the money, so the change was made. Four Cattle for Each Indian. Four head of the cattle were given to each Indian on the reservation, with the exception that the youngest member of each family only received three. By this arrangement, some families received as high as 35 head of cattle. The cattle cannot be sold for at least two years and while the head of the family has control of those appor tioned to his minor children, he must account to the children for the origi nal stock and the increase at the time the children attain their majority. While most of the Indians have range on their individual allotments, many of them turned their stock out on the common range. This is to be found In and about the numerous marshes on the reservation. There fore in addition to the general agency brand, which was placed on STOLEN! Procrastination Is the thief of eyesight, but a thief that cannot account for his misdoing. TWO WAYS Of getting glasses one Is to let some slick tongued fakir who peddles through the country come Into your town and sell you a pair, and run the risk of ruining your sight. This is easily done, for he knows how to fit a glass that makes you see splendidly today but to morrow you find that you cannot stand to wear them at all. Then you turn to your peddler he is gone. Don't let this he your experience. We are here to stay, and If you don't need cla'-M's we will tell you so. Wm. E. Hanscom Jeweler SUCCESSOR TOWINSLOW BROS. O. M. Heaeaek, Optician.

Twice every year there is a general roundup at which time the calves are branded, under the supervision of a federal officer, whose duty it is to see that the calves are given the same brand as their mothers. To complete the herds, Dr. McCIure purchased 25 bulls and is now look ing for 60 more. These are to re main the property of the govern ment, are given the agency brand only, and are turned out on the gen oral range for the benefit of all the Indians in general. Impressed With Klamath. Doctor McCIure was variously im pressed with the Klamath country. He says the agency is the most beau tiful, best equipped and kept In the best repair of any agency he has ever visited. He was there six weeks and in that time he says he never saw a blanket or a longhaired buck. He does not think, however, that that part of the state will ever be very much of a grain country, but says it will always remain one of the fin est grass producing sections In the world and he looks for it to become noted as a dairy country. He found it a good place for the angler and thinks it would be good for the sportsman as game of differ ent kinds seems to abound. Two deer were seen one day when he was out fishing, but in addition to its be ing the closed season, he possessed no gun. MAZAMAS MAKE ASCENT OF MOl'NT RAKER Deming, Wash.

WITCH DOCTORS KILL SIX READING IM AMS Reading. Pa. Coroner Strasser Is busy securing evidence in the case of the six infants who died since noon yesterday after alleged treatment by witch doctors for nothing but sum mer complaint. He has reported the matter to the district attorney. Reading is known for Its many witch doctors and there have been many cases In court of people who claimed that bors veerh'-xed them. No soon er does a child become ill in this sec tion than It is 'cvrhexedV' The result is that a )0W-Wow doctor with incan tations Is sought. Several of the children who died wire simply treated with mystic words while a red cotton cord was pasted over the body. In some cases a bag containing ehtrmed words was hung about the neck. "Many Children die every summer fr "in summer complaint who do not have an attending physician," said the coroner. "I find that the parents spend their money calling in old wo men who make a practice of pow wowing and using charmed words." Fertile John Day Vnlley. There Is not a more fertile spot In the Ftate of Oregon than the John Day valley, and Just as certain as the run of time the limited lands of the valley will advance in the real estate market to $1000 an acre and pos sibly more, predicts the Canyon City Eagle.
