"With this issue of The Madras
iPioneer we make onr first ap-
pearane before its readers and
can only wish that our paper
"will be greeted with the warm
welome we have receired from
the people of Madras.
In the future, as in the past,
-The Pioneer will work for the
right upbuilding of Madras and
the northern portion of Grook
county. In the short time he
has had control Mr. Brownhill
'has made The Pioneer a house
hold journal eagerly sought for
ind studiously read by the
larger portion of northern
Crook. We shall endeavor to
keep The Pioneer up to its pres
ent standard as a news purveyor,
.and as Madras and the sur
rounding country developed
and improves will strive to keep
The Pioneer abreast the times.
Yours very truly,
By S. D. Percival.
The fiist of April commenced
the season for the fishing ol
trout in Oregon and the lovers
-of this eport can now indulge to
their heart's content, provided
none are kept smaller than five
inches in length.
The virgin soil of this part of
the county is being rapidly pre
pared for seeding these days.
With normal conditions there
will be a yield of grain and hay

Merely an efferveaence and

The ewaeat 'plea of Agency
Plains taxpayer for an open
county road to tiro railroad is
one with whic'H the people of
western Crookcounty clear to the
southern boundary are heart
ily in sj'inpathy. But while he
is belating the county court on
account of this seeming over
sight, it should be remembered
that o county road to tire main
county road on Trout creek has
never been asked for. Every
petition for a county road from
Agency Plains toward the rail
road has either commenced or
ended at what is termed Lj'le's
gap, and all these petitions have
been granted, although it is
hardly business-like for a coun
ty to grant county roads which
abut against a fenced inclosure
technically private property,
passage through which can
be debarred to the public by
the simple posting of a tres
pass notice. The county might
Duild and improve roads lead
ing to this one point and then
have them rendered useless by
having the gap closed. The full
importance of having a county
road opened from this, gap to
the main Trout Creek road is
only fully realised when it is
known that this is the only route
during the bad roads of winter
that can be travelled by freight
teams from Madras, Bend and
Silver Lake, the other route
through Willow Creek being
practically impassable. A very
feasible route and grade from
this gap to the main conntj
road on Trout Creek is parallel
to the automobile grade, and
Agency Plains people should
make a move toward getting
this opened immediately.
The Campbell system of dry
Farming in the growing of alfalfa
is receiving some attention in
portions of this and other states
where the rainfall is not any too
plentiful and It is sure to work
a great change in the matter of
an increased amount of the crop.
The land is plowed deep in the
fall and allowed to remain until
the following spring during
which time it has gathered all
the moisture of the winter
months. At seeding time the
seed is coveted deeply, rolled
down, and then the harrow is
used a number of times until
the surface is so loose that a
perfect dust blanket is formed
which is then left undisturbed.
By this loose covering all the
moisture is held in the ground,
which is of vast benefit during
the dry season and ensures a
large cropi This plan ought to
be adopted in flections even
where the fall of rain is very
plentiful during the wet season
as too much attention cannot
be given to plating grain land
in first-class condition for grain
raising or pasture and hay pur
poses. The Willamette valley
in Oregon has a generally
moist climate but at lim'es dur
ing tho summer months the land
dries but to sucli ian extent that
some injury results to 'crop's oi
land that has been in use for
several years and, we believe,
the Campbell system if properly
pursued would work a wonder
fal change for tlte better.
THAT NORTH fefft) tfkAbE.
A great deal o UHfavoriTe comment
baa been cast against tfcafaresetitcoun
ty court by the eettlers of the north
nd of the Agency Plains, because
the north end grade was not opened
.lait fal 1 1 The real cause therefor ap
nears td liaVe Been overlooked. The
couuty ooHrfc'ttfii all that was asked of
It to do for that road, allowed the peti
tion atfd ordered the supervisor to bpen
tW Veatt an eoe aa partible, which h
proceeded to do by commencing at
the end 1b place of the commencement
of the Toad, using all the funds on the
grade rnunlng Into Madras auri leav
ing the most Important part of tlit
road untouched. The settlers working
on that ro,d kuew tlito and therefore
Are virtually to blame for the present
Btate of HftHlrs. They oouM -mill should
have refused ta work auyWhere, ex
cept on "lro most Important part "of
that road,1, o., the grade leadleu from
tho top of tho fPlalu In W. end off 8.

where they could haul their watr In

and the. thing to" do now Is to build
thatgrado. AvetUlou a'hr presontcd

work aud afking that the court In
nfriint the roiid supervisor to take
-charge of said work. This was a raovo
in the rlgnt uireeuoii, aim wan irmiiii
ly nllowod. As nearly all of the set
tiers who have promised to do this
work live lu this district they havu
asked that Road Supervisor John 8.
Dillon be Instructed to tako charge of
the work. This bus nlso been granted
and Mr. Dillon will doubtless take
charge of tho mutter and work will
commeuco on tho grado In tho very
near future. Wo would BUggest how
ever that tho settlers interested open
the grade clear down the bill, if only
In a crude way at present, completing
the roud as opportunity and funds will
permit; for we must keep In mind that
tho couuty lias already speui more
money ou roads In this, vicinity than
the laws outitle us to. It is now up
to the etttlers to build that road and
wo are sure they will do it.
