very largely upon whether It can
be aettled by ranrhere who own from
forty to eighty acrea of land. It !
unreasonable to think at thla time
that any man can mflte a living by

We believe Irrigated land n the
Prnevlle territory la particularly well
adaptable to the dairy business.
How can a rancher fare better than
to have from five to twelve cowi and
receive a milk check each month
with which to pay hla grocery and
other expense billa.
The Bank of Prlnevllle la ready to

rather perplexing problem con
fronts the sheep men who are trallng
to the Cascade mountains. It ap
pears that certain bands of sheep In
fested wfth scabies have crossed and
trailed over the range between
Powell Butte and Benjamin Lake,
making it Impossible for clean sheep
to get from the Prlnevllle section to
the Cascade mountains without cross
ing the Infested area unless they
trail through the lane by way of
Redmond. This means that the
sheep must be dipped under the sup
ervision of an Inspector before they
enter the - mountains, or else
take the road as mentioned. It is
understood that the sheep belonging
to S. W. Yancy, Ralph Proflly and
possibly T. H. Brennan, will be dipp
ed in a vat to be constructed at Cres

Last Sunday afternoon, the Prlne
vllle nine showed real class when
tbe team defeated Madras 8 to 1.
With Tetherow on tbe mound and
allowing only two hits, Prlneville's
bunch treated the local fans to Its
first victory on the home lot. Mad
ras won Its only score in tbe first
inning, and after that victory was
hopeless with half the team on Its
way to the bosoltal and the other
half none too optimistic as to when
it would be led to the slaughter. It
was an unlucky day for Madras.
The first man up to bat was bit by
the first ball delivered, and a short
time later another man was taken
out because of Injuries.
Now that Prlnevllle has won from
one of the best teams in Central Ore-1
gon, and also is assured of having j
lemerow pucn, considering mat ne
pitched a no-hit no run game against
Bend, the fans are taking keen in

of tbe fans who are looking forward
to a big showing against the visit

mouth of Bear Creek, connecting
with the present Crooked River
highway, to Milllcan, connecting!
there with the Bend-Burns highway,
with a view of going south to Lake
view for an all year connection with
California points.
This includes the graveling of the
Crooked River highway' and the
commission states that it believes
such a connection would be an all
year road through the state to the
southern country.
Tbe commission is letting con
tracts for the construction of bridg
es across Mill Creek and Marks
Creek on the Ochooo highway.
This construction is progressing
rapidly, the grading on the east end
of the road being well advanced, and
the distance around the Ochoco res
ervoir is well opened up and much
of the way the highway is completed
ready for graveling.
This highway will make traffic
between Prineville and the Mitchell
county much easier, and will mean
much to the people of that com
munity and those in tbe east end of
the county, in addition to being a
valuable link ln the east and west
state highway.
