The worst draw back to the free de livery of mail, is bad roads. The carrier must make the trip each day, on an av erage of over 20 m lies, in about five and one-half hours. Io that distance he will run into hundreds of chuck-holes, cross bridges that are full of holes and very dangerous. Wade through mud holes that could have been drained with ten minutes' work. If each tax payer would put in two hours' time each month, the roads could be kepi in a fair condition. It adds to the value of their land, and 6aves them money, by saving time they would lose by driving over bad roads. Each man who has a team, should have a drag of some kind, a heavy wood rack or an old stalk brake would answer the purpose very well. Af ter a rain each man could drag one-half mile of road, which would take him about one hour. He could do this while it was too wet to do anything else. A few shovels full of dirt would fill up that cbuck hole, a few forks of straw would stop that wash. All of theeb things would take but very little time or money, and would be of immense val ue to all concerned. People are awakening to the value of good roads and the prompt delivery of mail, and the sooner these little things are looked after, the better it will be for all.

MOORE & KREEK;, OREGON, ilO. The Markets. Special to The Skktinbl. Kansas City, Mo Wednesday, April 13, 1904. The principal feature of Ike cattle trade lately has been' ths large, number of beef cattle offered. The quality of fat steers has been good both last week and this. Receipts this week have been heavy, and although the de mand has been good, prices are Isver, and the gains of last weak have been lost. Top steers yesterday were at 1525, and four or five sales were abie 15.00, but light weight cattle which, have been selling so well recently were some lower. Packers expected to take off the price, bat there were so many outside orders, from exporters and ssmII Eastern butchers, that the decline was not as much as it would otherwise have been. This morning the supply is 8000 head, bnt buyers were out earl, and a strong market report from Chi cago to-day, together with a good many outside orders again, indicates a strong market here, and active. Butcher cattle, including cows and heifers have eon- tinued to sell well and are steady with ' last week. Light heifers sell very elese to steers of the same age and quality, or $4.00 to $4.25. Heavy cows bring $3.50. to $4.10. Stackers are in good demand that is, the beet kinds, others are some what draggy, and feeders are slow this week because beef steers are lower. Several big strings of feeds went out last week, though, at $4.25 to $4.50. Heavy bulls have been dull, butcher weights strong, and bulls have sold at $2.60 to $3 85. Veal calves are lower and the best bring $5.00 to $6.00 Hogs sold steady last three days of last week, higher Monday, but have been weak since. Heavy hogs are about steady to day, and there are more good hogs to day than heretofore this week. Top price is $5.10, bulk of sales $4.85 to $5.05. Light weight hogs have lacked support this week, and range of prices is wider than last week. Good quality does not count for as much as a short time ago, as packers pay very near the same price for all qualities. Sheep receipts have dropped off sharply recently, and the price has ad vanced correspondingly. Lambs sold at 86.15 yesterday, ewes at 85 25, and wethers would easily bring 5 50 or more. Buyers realize that the winter fed stuff is about all in, and that re ceipts will run short for awhile, and prices are expected to remain high for the next month or two. J. A.
