H. L. Pittock of Portland, man ager of the Oregonian; F. W. Lead better, president of the Columbia River Paper Company, and W. P, Hawley, assistant general manager of the Crown Paper Company, have purchased approximately a half in terest in the Charles K. Spaulding Logging Company of Newberg. The deal involves several hundred thousand dollars. Forlo, these many years, divers schemes have been used by all sorts of persons Missourians, Iowans, canal drivers, ranchers, city folks and others-rto niake balky horRes or mules behave and move on. Some have turned the hose on the obstinate critters, others have ap plipd fence rails with considerable force as prescribed by Sunny Jim poured water in their ears, built fires under them, or pounded their fore legs with clubs for an. hour or so, with all sorts of results. Yet balky horses and mules continue to exist and ht mane societies multiply. But this stale of affairs will undoubted ly pass into ancient history once the world at large learns of the ex istence of Charles Davis, 'of this county, and his unique remedy for making a balky horse behave. Mr. Davis is in charge of the horses used in hauling logs to the Charter Oak Saw Mill Co.'s plant, located near Airlie, this county. To snake an oak log out of the av erage Oregon forest almost justifies any old animal cultivating a mule ish temperament, even under the best of circumstances. But when the critters are natural born think ers along one line to begin with, the task involved in supplying the mill with logs, says Mr; Davis, is not conducive to clear sailing for the men holding the reins, particularly when the roads are crude, dotted with tree stumps, and up hill and down. But a few months ago Mr. Davis made what is considered a real, sure-enough discovery, one that is said to be not only an effectual but a humane way to cure a balky horse. It happened while he was on the way to the mill with a heavy oad of logs on a truck. His team consisted of a good pulling horse logs with the lines in one hand and a whip in the other, Mr. Davis then yelled with almost fiendish joy "Now, darn your Missouri carcass git up!" And the thoroughly ng tated animal almost jumped out of the harness, so eager, was it to get away from , that peb'ble torture, And it has been a very docile cri ter ever since. Mr. Davis says he has had occa sion to apply the same remedy to two balky horses since his first ex perience arid in both cases it ha proved an effective cure. As th application- is a humane one i t i i i ougnt to Decume popular every where. . FALLS CITY MILLS J.

McAllister, who -passed three days in Dallas, last week, returned to Falls City, Sunday afternoon He is engaged in falling timber for the Bryan-Lucas Lumber Co. The sawmills of this company and the Watkins company are located four miles out and the lumber is flumed into Falls City. Each company is operating a big planing mill in the city, giving employment, to 160 men at good wages. Mr. McAllis ter says the timber out thai way is A No. I fir and the belt runs to the Pacific ocean. There is also con siderable cedar in the interior. Mr. McAllister says he felled a tree at the camp, last week, out of which he secured three 16-foot sticks, two 24-foot, one J 3-foot and one 18-footer before any limbs were encountered. This tree was 38 inches through at the bottom. An other tree, with a two-foot stump, yielded five 80-foot log. A three foot tree at the stump was cut into ten 16-foot sticks. One stick 16 feet from the butt,, scaled 2,374 feet of lumber at the mill: , while the Catarrh of The Stomach. When the stomach is overloaded; when food is taken into it that fails to digest, it decays and inflames the mucous membrane, exposing the nerves, and causes the glands to secret mucin, instead of the natural juices of digestion. This is called Catarrh of the Stomach. For years I suffered with Catarrh of the Stomach, caused by indiges tion. Doctors and medicines failed to benefit me until I used Kodol Dyspepsia Cure. J. R.

The State Board of Agriculture is making a number of needed im provements at the state fair grounds this year. A new water system costing $5,000 is being put in which will add much comfort to the exhibitors and campers. More new stalls are being built to better accommodate the large number of exhibitors that are preparing to come to the fair. A large amphi theatre is being built, where visit ors caij be seated and witness the livestock judging under cover. Many minor improvements are be ing made to make a visit to the fair a pleasant event and a joy forever. Bczxz ? to Via H?w i 8:: Signature latter being a new addition to the stable. Everything moved along smoothly with .Mr. Davis and his charge until an up-hill pull was encountered. Here the mule bucked.- Coaxing, profanity in big gobs, together with a wholesome application .of the blac.ksnake by the driver, availed "not. The mule continued to stand pat and perfect ly rigid. Mr. Davis had been made ac quainted with the mettle of the mule, but he paid no attention to the advice given him, as he had handled horses all his life and never failed before to make them come to taw. But this particular animal seemed to be of very hard formation ui.il things looked really bad for the head teamster. Finally he sat down along the roadside, near one of the breed of animals that made Missouri famous, to diagnose the case. The strong, powerfully-built mule looked straight ahead without batting an eye. In casting his optics toward the balky animal's teet Mr. Davis no ticed that the ground was covered with small pebbles. Without any fixed purpose ho picked up a hand ful, -and then it occurred to him to shoot one of the pebbles, like a boy does marbles, at the mule's nose. The tiny rock was accurately aimed, but the mule did not deign to no tice it. An instant later another pebble landed on the nasal organ of Mr. Mule, then another and an other, until a full dozen hit the bullseye. The stubborn animal then "noticed" the bombardment for the first time by snorting. This encouraged Mr. Davis in his short range shooting tournc., and he continued his rapid fire of pebbles. The constant jabbing was begin ning to irritate the-mule and cause him to switch his chain of thought, unlimber his legs, and finally shake his head in all directions in an en deavor to get his nose out of range of the pebbles. But Mr. Davis fired away as fast he could until the animal whined, howled and danced around with evident fear and pain, and was covered with foam and rage and woe. , Climbing upon the wagon load of KXPFRTKNCFl TS THF1 P.FRT tfh-r.

He ali?o avers that deer in large numbers roam through the woods where he is at work every day and that trout fishing in the creeks is of the best. Mr, McAllister says Falls City is growing very rapidly and is des tined to be one of the leading cities in the county in the very near fu ture. Observer legal blanks are best. While working in the hay field on R. L. Bewley's place, near town, Wednesday, Joe Steward killed a largo rattlesnake with his pitch fork. On its tail were eigiit rattles and a button.. This is the first rattlesnake killed around here for some time, though they used to be numerous on the hills north of town. Sheridan Sun. , ESSENTIALS OF THE FAIR Engineer Huber Makes Estimates of Work on Grounds. Evening Telegram. Engineer Oker Huber, of the Ex position Company, showed in his detailed report, submitted to the board Friday evening, that he had made a very careful study of the essentials of the Fair. According to bis figures, there will be suffic ient revenue to build an excellent Fair of modest proportions, and leave a balance besides to take care of emergencies. He estimates that the receipts from concessions and admissions will take care of the operating expenses. Seven hundred thousand admis sion tickets, it is thought-, will be sold. The total income from ad missions and concessions, includ- ng sales of exhibit spafe and sal vage at the close of the show, is placed at a possible $520,000. Part of this revenue is to be derived from sale of light and power by the Exposition Company toconces sionairies and exhibitors on the grounds.

It is not too early to begin the training of an exposition chorus of several hundred voices. Actual construction of buildings should begin not later than next Spring. Eighteen months' time is between the present and the open ing of the show, and preliminary sketches of architects for the build ings should be under way at the present time. Buildings and grounds must he completed, artistic-ally lighted dur ing the evening, and the lighting facilities must be extra god on account of the crowds in the eve ning. A lignt-distribuling station will cost 1370,516. Concession features suggested: 1. Intramual railway from main Exposition grounds to neck of the Peninsula, near the Northern Pa cific Railway embankment. 2. Aerial tramway from highest point of the main Exposition grounds to the Peninsula proper. 3. Boat concessions canoes, elec tric launches, gondolas and other light craft to transport passengers from main Exposition grounds to Peninsula. In this conneetion I would suggest the Indian village at one terminus and the Samoan vil lage at the other. These Indians should represent, according to his torical traditions, the tribes en countered by Lewis and Clark on their expedition to the coast. 4. A captive baloon to rise from 500 to 1000 feet. ' 5. A Wild West show on a small scale showing the roping of cattle and horses, overland 6tage, hold ups, warfare between Indian tribes and Indians and soldiers. Space for this could be afforded in the large area of the Peninsula and Exyosilion grounds when not used otherwise for a stock exhibit. 6. Restaurants. These should be numerous and of graded quali- , ty. Under this head would come stands for the sale of ice cream, Boda water, voffeo and light bever- 7.

Special historical events like "Pass- ingof the Furls" or the "Battle of Manila," or the "Destruction of " Cervera's Fleet," could be beauti fully illustrated by the use of these vessels. .
