The hunt for the murderers' of Ed ward McCullough, the Haines saloon man,' Is still being pressed with un diminished vigor, although it Is the opinion of many that the two men who committed the deed have by this time made good their escape. Although several clues have been found and followed nothing has come of them. Baker county has offered a reward of $1000 and the town of Haines has offered $500 for the capture of the murderers. In addition to this Gov ernor West has telegraphed that the state of Oregon will give $1000 for their arrest and conviction, and many detectives are flocking to Haines to get in on the trail. Flora Journal Changes Hands Mrs. E. P. Skaggs Sells Flora Jour . nal To Roacoe Ghormley and A. M. Bolden News Notes. Mrs. E. P. Skaggs, proprietress of the Flora Journal for the past nine years, has sold that rustling sheet to Messrs. Roscoe Ghormley and A. M. Bolden, who took' possession of the plant Monday morning. During the time Mrs. Skaggs has been at the head of the Journal she always tried and was very success ful In getting out a bright, clean, newsy sheet which was fully apprec iated by her faithful readers. Mr. Ghormley of the new firm Is now at outside points and expects: to' bring back with him new presses, pa per cutter and other machinery to make the work of getting out a good paper much easier. The new firm is intending to re model the present Journal building, Install new type and machinery and make the plant one of the best In the county. Here's hoping. Flora. Miss Nettie Brock, who has been teaching the primary department of our schools, departed for her home In Enterprise, Saturday. Mrs. N. N. Straley of Paradise de parted for Asotin the first of the week, where she and her husband will make their future home. Sheep are still dying at the Coff- man sheep ranch. The report that it is all from hydrophobia, however, is greatly exaggerated. Franki Able, who Jiaa been herding at the camp, said this morning that but few had died from that cause, that the sheep being old and other conditions were responsible for by far the greater part of the deaths. The last heard from James For dice, .who is in Portland, he was recovering from the operation he had recently undergone. Dr. Gilmore has traded a portion of his town property to Walter Ap plegate for town property In Imbler. We are pleased to know that Mr. and Mrs. Applegate are intending to stay in Flora. We are in hopes, how ever, that the doctor will not con clude to leave us. A dinner was given at, the home of W. C. Straley, Sunday, In honor of that gentleman's 50th birthday, M. H. Tucker of Enterprise was In town Friday night. . Johnnie Maley, who Is being treat ed for blood poison on one of his hands by Dr. Gilmore, was much im proved Tuesday, k Troy.

Williams and daughter Lorene of Eden were at Troy Mon day having some dental work done by Dr. King. After working on the Troy Flour ing mill for some time, Wm. Robin son returned to bis home at Grouse last Sunday. ' Quite an- excitement has been ex isting on account of the long absence of A, J. Henderson and son, who went out for a six days hunt and were not heard from for 21 days, which was Wednesday. For throe days Frank Peterson, Ora Parmer, Frank Eggleaton, James Chadsey and Chas. Flemming searched in the mountains for some trace of them, the family at home being almost, fran tic with grief. At last a message was ient to Waitsburg where relatives live and it was learned that those who bad been thought lost had been there "visiting and were now on their way home. OREGON PRODUCTS ATTRACT BIG CROWDS Indications are for great movement of Homeseekers into Oregon's rich unsettled parts during 1911. Fruit Industry interests Central States. "The way to get people into the Northwest is to take the Northwest to them." This is what President Hill of the Great Northern has done for Oregon by completely equipping a car with Oreson products and Bend ing it on a 7,000 mile tour through the eastern states with tmivelir.g repre sentatives in charge who are' well versed on western conditions. The interest this car has created every where on its tour through Michigan, eastern Ohio and southern Indiana ''IT Ait? OREOON EXHIBIT BY' GREAT NORTHERN RY. AT 'WESTEIIN LAND PRODUCTS EXHIBIT, HELD IN. OMAHA, NEB. RECENTLY. has been nothing short of wonderful. Oregon is bound to gain from this practical publicity, and the value of. it can only be reckoned when the colon ist period is over and some idea can be had of the number of new settlers brought into the State. The following reports of the Travel - ing Immigration Agents in charge of Oregon s Exhibition Car were furnish ed by E. C. Leedy, General Immigra tion Agent of the Great Northern Ry. Greenwood, lud. Fifteen hundred visitors, a great many of whom were farmers. A large per cent of interest was for homesteads in Oregon. The hall where the stereopticon lecture was held In the evening was crowded, and some were turned away. The ap pie display In the car is drawing many favorable comments. JefferBonville, Ind. Tremendous crowd. At least 5,000 people, visited the car. The crowd kept up all day long and the lecture hall was crowded in the evening. We estimated the at tendance at about 1,400. The interest seems to be mostly in farm lands with a little for fruit culture. This is a S. S. 'Association Meets at Spokane Expect 1200 Delegates To Be Present Many Prominent Speaks -ers To Lecture. Spokane, Wash., March 7. Twelve hundred delegates, representing all parts of eastern Washington and Oregon, north and central Idaho and western Montana, are expected to at tend the annual convention of the In land Empire Sunday school associa tion In Spokane, April 25 .to 27.

New Albany, Ind. Nothing so far equals the attendance to the Oregon car such as we had at New Albany. Starting early In the morning we had a steady crowd of visitors for the two days. On the evening of the second day we passed through the car not less than 1,500 people between 7:00 and 9:00 p. m. It was necessary to do this, as we left at 9:30 p. m. I would i retell in o r A 9 t x ? estimate the attendance during both days at no less than 9,000 people. Franklin, Ind. Enthusiasm and In- terest shown here set a new mark for the Oregon Car. We had fully 4,000 Visitors and the hall In the evening was filled to overflowing I hav 1 never experienced quite such an en thuslastio audience as we encountered nt our lecture. After the lecture we were kept busy forsome time giving per sonal interviews. We also opened the car and allowed the people to look the exhibits over until almost 11:00 p. m. We secured the names of a large number of prospective homesteaders and tourists for Oregon. Ansonla, Ohio. Attendance about 600. At the stereopticon lecture in the evening every seat In the hall was taken. It was a rousing and especial ly Interested crowd and the attend ance was large considering the size of the town. Several came to me after the lecture in the evening and stated that they were going west this spring or summer, though we are In position to take care of several hundred more.' "There will be prominent speakers from the northwestern and coast stat es, also from eastern centers, and on the whole the program of the con vention will be arranged on such line as to give added interest to Sunday school work not only in the Inland Empire but throughout the Pacific slope country.'.

Oregon Agricultural College, Corval lis, M arch 7. An actual' saving of ov- er $1,000 In horse feed resulted from tne information gained by a prominent business man and farmer of Salem, Ore., In the winter short. course at the Oregon Agricultural College. Last year he came himself to the course, and this year, being unable to attend be sent his ranch foreman. The know ledge gained in the course on feeding of horses alone netted him a saving of over $1,000 In his feed bills, and his animals are In finer condition than ever before, he says. Over $5,000 would have been saved by( S. W. Jamleson of Dell, Ore., he estimates, If he had taken the short course ' two years ago. Inexperience and lack of training when he came west two "years ago to develop his holdings of 4,000 acres of fruit lands, caused Mr. Jamleson to make the us ual mistakes of the beginner. Upon attending the course at the college this winter he discovered his mistake and made a careful computation of his consequent losses, which amount ed to over $5,000, These are but two of the large num ber of similar cases which have come to the attention of Dean Arthur B uoraiey of tne college. It Is a spec ial aim of the college not only to equip young men to go out after grad uation and develop the new lands to their Mtmost capacity, but to help the farmer, stockmen and orchard men of the state who are aleady caring for lands of their own or in charge of large estates, to get the greatest possible value out of the land, and to help them to solve the problems that arise, and to get rid of the peata which injure crops. NEW HOMESTEAD LAW. Carl Roe, United States Commis sioner, received a letter, Monday, from the La Grande Land Office, stat ing that a law was passed on Feb ruary 13, 1911, which granted to all persons who have filed declaratory statements or made homestead en tries in the state of Oregon,- where the period In which they were re quired by law to make entry under such declaratory statements or to establish residence expired or ex piree after December 1st, 1910, are granted until May 16, 1911, to make such entry or establish such resi dence upon the lands entered by them. This law allows those who under the former law would have bad to establish their residences on their homesteads In March or April, until May 15 to do so.
