All grew well but the harvest of
olntoe.i went to the chipmunks.
They didn't seem to fancy the other
vegetables. However, it is pre
sumed that with larger clearings
the chipmucks will cease to trouble
the vegetables. Thin is Mr. Moss's
first year on his homestead uud he
has only about two acres tilled.
He will have about five acres in

Crook county, of hewn logs put
together so tight that they bafllc
even mice. This makes a warm
and comfortable house.
Mr. Moss has groat faith in the
agricultural productiveness of this
country. He says it has not had a
fair show yet and nobody knows
what it will do, The fine crops of
grain raised on farms a few miles
northwest of Heud this year show
that projwr cultivation of the soil '
will bring results. Of course water
is essential in some places but it
may le hud. To stir the soil and
take care of the crop is the main
thing, however, for many localities
that arc not popularly regarded as
promising. Nature will do its part
if the farmer will do his.

Circumstantial Ijvldcncc Did not Con
vince the Jury.
Ah was forecast by The Hullctln
lost week, Clove Donkcl was ac
quitted of the murder of his father,
the jury Ixilng out eight hours be
fore agreeing ujwii a verdict. There
was no direct evidence to connect
the sou with the murder of the
father. The circumstantial evi
dence, though strong, was greatly
discounted by the well known
character of the old man, which
was brought out in the testimony
nt this trial. The possible doubt
its to the main fact, coupled with
the probability of justification if
the main charge wore true, Mcmtd
eventually to carry the day with
the jury, and a verdict of acquittal
was filially agreed ujk)h.
The verdict was rendered Friday
night. AccomtKinicd by his broth
ers and sisters, Clcve Donkcl came
out from Prineville Saturday and
Monday he went up the river. It
is said tlmt the young folks will
soon build a house mid establish
their home on their claim a short
distance below Heud.
Indian Who Values Ills Tlmo.
Jackson Kulps, n prosperous
Indian from thu warm Springs
agency, spent Saturday stud Sun
day in Heud on his way back from
a hop-picking visit to Lane county.
He was accompanied by his wife
and two young sous. They had 14
horses Along with them and found
it not an easy matter to rustle
forage for the animals, and they
were duly grateful for free pastur
age in the Drake field on the west
side of the river.
Kulps says his visit to the valley
this year was a waste of time. Too
man) persons were engaged In hop-
picking, The pay per box was
good enough, but the term of pick
ing was too short. Kulps got in
but four days, a ico-acre hop yard
being clcuued up in that time. His
earnings were $n. He says he
could have stayed at home and
sold $100 worth of stuff from liis
ranch 111 the time wasted by going
to the Willamette valley.
It is a decided novelty to find an
Indian regretting the waste of hit.
Kulps has a ranch of 300 acres a
dozen miles to thu northwartl of the
Warm, Springs agency. He has
100 acres under cultivation and
good building. He intends to get
a lot of cattle and graze the laud
not actually under plow. He raises
hay, grain and vegetables and sells
chiefly to the agency. He likes
farming and says he can make
much money by it. However, his

Improving Snow Creek Ditch.
The Snow Creek Irrigation Com
pany, of which M. C. Awbrey is
president, Thomas Arnold secretary
and William Fryrear treasurer, is
about to make considerable im
provements in its irrigation plant.
The lake at the head of the Throe
Creeks ditch, which originally cov
ered 160 acres and has been given
an additional iirea of about 30 acres
by n dam eight feet tall, will
probably be added to and the head
gates will be rebuilt and Improved.
A good deal of general repair work
along the course of the ditch will
ulso be done this fall, This irri
gation enterprise serves an import
ant district that is as yet not much
developed, but there is a notable
movement that way.
Uenil-Prlnevlllo Road Change.
It has practically been decided,
subject to the approval of the

Priueville-Bend county road will
be changed so as to run west into1
Hrondwny, in the Lytlo townsite.
Than from the vicinity o( C. J.
