owned by Li-wia McAllister,
who interested Portland capital

about $n0,000 had been spent
by the owners, development
work wttH abandoned, and the
property came into the hands of

Mr. Throusou had btjen one of
the original owners or the Ore

every section of the county on
prospecting tours, and lie was
convinced that thoro were great
possibilities in the Mayflower.
Under his supervision develop

there are now something like

PLOWING TtlO DEEP.
S. G. Cosgrove, who spent
several -days in this vicinity
during the past week .looking
over the farming lauds and stu
dying tho soil, is authority for
tlio Rtatement that some of the
farmers in this locality are plow-
ng too deep. Mr. Cosgrove be
lieves that in breaking new soil,
or plowing for spring sowing,
tho ground should not ho bro
ken to a dopth of to exceed 3 to
4 inches, and tlio reasons which
ho gives certainly aro plausible.
Ho eayB that in deep plowing

the Crook County Journal. Its

treasurer of the Deschutes Irri
gation it Power Company, which
spent 2o,000 last year in the
construction and equipment of
the line, stated last week that
unless railroad advancement
should take a sudden spurt into
Crook county, the automobile
line would be in operation in
tune to handle the neavy pas
senger traflic coming to Crook
county this season to invest in
tile company's lands.
Little change will be made in
tho route of travel with the ex
ception that the southern term.

miles of tho old station at Bend
This cliango will be made owing
to the fact that since the road
was built last year the compa
ny's headquarters have been re
moved to the latter town.
The company anticipates an
immense number of prospective
settlers this year. Most of these
will want to get to tho irrigated
sections by tho shortest route
possible and the auto route wil1
prove the most serviceable.

THE WHITE HOUSE WEDDING
PicBltlent's Dnujjhter Becomes Mrs.
Washington, Feb, 17. With a plain
circlet of virgin gold, in the historic East
Room of the White House, at 13 minutes
after 12 o'clock today, Alice Lee Roose
velt, eldett daughter of the President ol
the United States," and Nicholas Long
worth, the Representative in Congress
from the First District of Ohio, were
united in marriage.
The ceremony one of the most impres
sive ever performed in the executive man
sion was according to the liturgy of the
Protestant Episcopal Church, of which
the bride is a member. It was solemnized
by the Right Rev. Henry Y. Satteflee,
Bishop of Washington, and was attended
by all the solemn state of - a grand official
function and by the devotional beauty of
a cathedral 'service. ,No ceremony of a
similar kind ever was witnessed by a more
distinguished assemblage. There were
present as guests not only the most emi
nent representatives of the American
Government, but the personal commis
sioners of kings and potentates of the
powers of the civilized world, constituting
an assemblage not only one of theJargest,
but the most distinguished that ever was
gathered at one time in the White House.
A halo of a hundred years of romantic
White House history hung over the bridal
couple. Miss Roosevelt was the twelfth
bride according to accepted authorities, to
plight her troth in its classic walls, and the
identical spot where she today joined
hands with the husband of her choice,
"for better or for worse," is hallowed in
the memory of another White House
bride, "Nellie Grant, who, on that same
spot, 32 years ago, became the wife of
an Englishman, Algernon F. C. Sartoris.
Tender, indeed, must have been the re
collections of Mrs. Sartoris of that day,
now long ago, for she was one of the wit
nesses of Miss Roosevelt's wedding.
While the bride herself and the Presi
dent and Mrs. Roosevelt had desired
that the ceremony of the marriage be as
quiet and simple as possible, it was found
impracticable to limit the function, as was
intended at first, to the immediate rela
tives of the bride and the bridegroom. It
became necessary to include among the
guests invited certain, official classes and
personal friends of Miss Roosevelt and
Mr. Longworth and, in all, the people
bidden to the ceremony numbered iooo.
The ceremony took place in the East
room, made famous oy me century 01
brilliant social functions, but no event in
its history ever was so brilliant and beau
tiful as that ot today. The classic splen
dor of the great apartment was enhanced
by exquisite and artistic decorations, and
the brilliant sunlight of a gorgeous day
lent added beauty to the setting of the
It had been intended to light the mag
nificent room with the hundreds of softly
shaded electric lamps of the great crystal
chandeliers, but, while artificial lights were
utilized throughout the rest of the White
House, it was detemtned to flood the man
riage scene with sunlight. It was a beau
tiful conceit, founded on the pretty pro
verb, "Happy is the bride the sun shines
on.'' No lovlier day in winter ever
dawned. The air was as balmy, almost,
as in spring. No more auspicious day
for a wedding could have been imagined.
