"Uncle John" SKcniore's ranch
shows the possibilities of the Des
chutes vn I ley. He has this year
cut timothy and red top as tall as a
man and now his mower is in oats
nearly un.hiuli that will Ixi made in
to hay. I Ie raises turnips and ruta
bagas large as 10-pound lard pails

through. Hit onions grow so fast
that he cannot keep them thinned
out in the rows and bin lettuce and
radishes wax cortcsponilingly.
Potatoes grow luxuriantly except
in a few spots where front strikes.
Twenty-one years ago Mr. Sine
more came to this place on the
river, where John Todd occupied a
log cabin and viewed complacently
the expanse of grassy bottom land.
It just fitted the Sisemore eye and
he opened negotiations to buy it.
When Mr. Todd offered to .sell his
homestead right for$i.joo.Mr Sisc
more took the offer, lie perfected
his government title and has held
the place ever since and he is as
pleased with it today as he was the
day he paid John Todd $hoo for
the right to make homcMcari entry.
To the original quarter-section
Mr. Sisemore has added until he
now has a ranch of 2.o acres, with
good home and the best barn on
the Deschutes. Seventy-five of the
740 ucres are bottom laud and un
der ditch. The reuiuindcr is tint
ler and graying land. Mr. Sise
more has sent to California for a
Mrraper with which he will level
down two or three knolls that now
reach above the water line. Mr.
Sisemore has two farms in the
Uogue river valley, but in his esti
mation they will not compare with
his ranch on the Deschutes.

Prank Korcst has sold his I.oue

at the option of the company.
The headquarters of the company

county, but will be transferred to
Forest's on January 1 next, when
the company will take possession.
The Forest place is to be managed
by C. C. O'Neil, the company's

PKUI'AKINCl TO OI'l-N SCHOOL.
Hoard Holds 0 MootliiK-.-Tcnchcr to
Do Hired Next Tuesday,
A meeting of the district school
board was held at the sclioolhouse
Tuesday evening. The elerk was
insttucted to advertise for bids for
supplying fuel and lor janitor ser
vice at the Kchoolhotisc lor the com
ing year and an adjournment was
taken until next Tuesday evening,
when the meeting will be for the
purjKJsc of hiring a teacher.
The meeting was he.d pursuant
to a notice given in writing by
Chairman Wiest. He wrvecl the
notice tijxtti Directors Conor out!
Triplett, both of whom were prc
cut. John Steidl, whose sc.it is con
tested by Mr. Triplett, wus also
present. The only other person
present was J. M. Lawrence, who
occupied the clerk's desk. Pre-j
ceding the business of the meeting
there was a little informal discus
sion of the advisability of agreeing
that the undisputed members of (he
board should conduct the business
of the district until the court should
decide which of the others is en
titled to act. Chairman Wiest told
of Ins attempt to reach an under
standing with Director Cottor by
which neither of the claimants to
the disputed seats should be rccog
n i zed before the decision of the
court, and of Cottor's declining to
cuter such arrangement, and he
then asked Mr. Steidl if he would
be willing to agree that neither
claimant should act before the
cotttt's decision should be made.
Mr. Steidl haul he did not wish to
do anything that would injure the
school but he did not think he
ought to consent to the proposed
Chairman Wiest called upon the
clerk to read the minutes of the
previous meeting. When they
were read Director Cottor objected
to their approval, not stating the
ground of his objection. On roll
call the minutes wctc approved by
the following vote: Ayes, Trip
lett and Wiest; noes, Cottor. These
were the minutes of the board meet
ing immediately following the au
nual election and they have been
published in full in The Bulletin.
Mr. Steidl asked that the record
show that his recognition as a di
rector was refused by the chair.
The chair declined to entertain the
request from Mr. Steidl, whom he
ruled to be an outsider not entitled
to participate inthe official pro
ceedings of the board. The chair
suggested that if Director Cottor
chose to make the request it would
be recognized. Director Cottor did
make the request and it was duly
entered of record. Mr. Steidl then
left and the others proceeded with
the business of the meeting.
After an informal and amicable
discussion of school matters Direc
tor Cottor moved that the clerk call
for bids for janitor service at the
schoolhouse, the bids to be sub
mitted by the evening of September
8, and the motion was carried. He
also made a motion that the clerk
call for bids for supplying 15 ricks
of stovewood 20 inches long at the
schoolhouse, which was carried.
The applications of Miss Onteg,
of Prineville, Miss Roberts, of Bend,
and Mr. Kdwards, of Sisters, to
teach the Bend school were briefly
discussed, after which an adjourn-
1 incut was taken until next Tuesday
evening, when the matter of hiring
a teacher will be taken up. School
will probably begin the succeeding
HAPPENINOS IN BEND.

A fine son was born to Mr. and
Mrs. Wallace Donkel, at the Mead

Mr. and Mrs. A. M. Drake and
Miss Marion Wiest drove to Prine
ville Tuesday. Mrs. Drake and
Miss Wiest returned the next day
but Mr. Drake went on to Portland.
John Sisemore is about to build a
two-story box. building 22x60 feet

Walla real estate man and merchant,

more in the store.
T. P. McCallistcr, of Crooked
river, came up from his ranch last
night with a load of hay for the
Pilot Butte Development Company.
He has contracted with the com
pany to de.ivcr 100 tons of baled
hay ut Bend this fall at f 17 a ton.
Who wouldn't be a farmer!
John Tcmplctonr W. A. Booth
and D. F. Stewart, of Princville,
returned today from their outing iti
the mountains. They had been
out two weeks, nnd as far west as
the Willamette's headwaters, but
Mr. Templcton reported seeing only
one lcar, the claws of which he
carried home in his saddlebags.
Veda Dorrance was playing with
some children in Garden Row Wed
nesday afternoon and climbed over
the wire fence that surrounds the
Drake garden, for clover blossoms
to make a wreath. Returning she
caught on a barb which made a
gaping three-inch rent in her shin.
By prompt attention the wound
was put in good shape for healing.
Ora Poiudcxtcr, his wife, son and
nephew Ralph, and Rcan West, re
turned Tuesday afternoon from
their fishing trip to Davis and Odcll
lakes. They were equipped for
both hunting and fishing, and even
took a boat along for the latter
sport, but during the entire two
weeks they were at the lakes no
fish were killed for packing; just
enough for current use could be
caught. Ora said he met an old
she-bear with two cubs one day,
but of course it happened at a time
when he was fishing and he had no
gun with him.
"Uncle Jack" Vandevert, aged
81 years, is quite ill at the home of
his son William P., above Lava
postoffice. The old gentleman was
stricken with a bowel complaint
that has been prevalent in the Des
chutes valley recently and it was
feared for a time that it would be
his last fight. Word was sent to
his sons, who hurried to his bed
side. Dr. Edwards was also sent
for and he was able to relieve the
aged patient so much that he is ex
pected soon to recover. "Uncle
'Jack" Vandevert is on Oregon pio
neer of 1848. Until about 20 years
ago he lived in the Willamette val
ley. Then he came to this stock
country, where his sons had ac
quired extensive interests, and he
has since made his home here. He
j has led an active life and is still
"Dad" West met with an acci
dent last Friday evening that might
have proved more serious. He was
unloading beef from the delivery
hack nrcoaratorv to movintr it into
j the meat market and to facilitate
the Handling ot me dcci lie was
standing on an apple box. As he
had a quarter in the air and was in
the act of getting a good hold the
i box turned over. Dad's feet went
up and Dad went down. He bit
the ground pretty hard, and then
the quarter of beef struck hitn full
in the chest. As it weighed about
1 50 pounds it was no light blow,
and Dad thought he never would
get his breath again. In a little
while he recovered himself suffi
ciently to go home, and after a rest
on Saturday was able to be around
again. At present he is recovering
from the bruises received in the ac
cident. W. A. Laidlaw, president of the
Columbia Southern Irrigation Co.,
was the victim of untoward circum
stances last Thursday night the re
sults of which he will not forget in
a hurry. A. C. Lwcas had driven
him over to the contpatiy's ditch,
and on arriving at that point Mr.
Laidlaw, who is thoroughly famil
iar with the country, said that he
would walk the rest of the way to
the camp, and that as it was late
and rather dark Mr. Lucas had bet
ter drive home. So Mr. Laidlaw
was left on the desert at the ditch.
The camp had moved during his
recent absence, however, and was
two miles away from its former lo
cation; and when he arrived at the
old camp site and, failed to find any
traces of it other thou a few scat
tered condensed milk tins .his feel
ings may be imagined. Mr. Laid
law heafd the blasting next morn
ing and by that sound he was guid
ed into camp about 10 o'clock.
