ABOUT THE -WEATHER.
Some comment is already
being made about the dr' weath-
jar. but there is little cause for
uneasiness, as grain can yet en
dure quite a lot of iry weather
without being injured. If we
should have .no, rain between
now and the middle of June
there would be cause for fear,
but the past tin ee .yeas when
rain was getting to be needed
badly, it came in time to pre
vent any shortage of crops, and
once in a while there has benn
such a continnance of rain that
people would get to wishing it
would stop for a while.
In reference to the climate of
this country, we often hear new
comers remark that for the life
of them they cannot see how a
country as dry as this can pro-i
duce anything. Without being
an expert on climatic conditions
or an authoritj' on the attri
butes of soil in Central Oregon,
it is a well known fact that the
soil in the Deschutes country
is very tenacious of moisture.
This country can raise good
crops with a minimum supply
of rain, while in many other
portions of the United states,
with a different class of soil, the
same amount of rain would
hardly save them from a drought
and a consequent failure of
crops. Iu this sandy soil there is
hardly a season of thej'ear that
moisture cannot be found with
in three to four inches from the
surface, at. the most) in either
plowed ground or sod. And
this country will have to have
an expectionally dry season to
cause a failure of crops.
People are prone to be dis
satisfied, and often take a de
light in trying to find trouble,
btit let us not be too forward in
finding fault with the weather,
as providence has heretofore
given us an abundant fcupply.
This article was written and
in tj'pe previous to the rain and
enow of the last two du3's, and
while we make no claim that it
is responsible for the rain, it
emphasires our assertion that
there need be no fear that this
country will supper for lack of
Orgonian: From the Eastcou
tinud to come rumors of the re
tirement of M Harriman from
his present position of power in
the railroad world. If a suc
ces .or shall be selected for Mr.
II iri iman . and Portland shall
have anj' voice in the matter (ol
course Portland will not), it
would like to have a man a:
good at fulfilling promises as ai
making t.iem. If Harriman
had possessed this charming
trait, we would todaj' have rail
connection with Central Oregon
and also with the Clearwater.
