O Turtles of the Galapagos Turtles of the Galapagos islands lay white spherical eggs, which are a little larger than hens' eggs, in the sand or any convenient hole, a dozen or more at a time. If dogs and pigs do not destroy the eggs, buzzards often attack the young tortoises. If these escape de- struction, the older animals are generally killed by man for their flesh and for the clear oil obtained from their fat. Those which survive all these perils are apt to live for centuries, barring other accidents, asking nothing else than to pursue their peaceful ways.

Salmon Phone 1,.)2 By Washington State Progress Commtssto The famous "pig war" on San Juan Island nearly precipitated a major world war in 1859. Its set- tlement decided a portion of the U. S.Canada boundary. While Britain and the United States were attempting to settle ownership of the islands that are now a part of Washington State, the prize pig of Charles Griffin, an Englishman, rooted up the potato patch of Lyman Cutler, an American. Potatoes, brought 40 miles in a rowboat, were valu- able, so Cutler shot the pig. The famous "pig war" which threat- ened to engulf the nations of the world ensued. The matter was finally given to Kaiser Wilhelm I for arbitra- tion. The British were put on the north end of San Juan Island. the Americans on the south end. In 1872, Kaiser Wilhelm drew a -- pencil line down the Canal de Haro. giving the San Juan islands to the United States. Seven graves on the island are the only British soil. Cutler's gun that shot the pig is preserved in the Washington Historical Mus- eum at Tacoma. o Trespassing Signs for sale at The Mt. Adams Sun office.
