Govornment Officials Want BonaflL, Of Ranchora Experience Mat- tor of Interest to' Everybody Tl. ih government oinciais in charge of ijlie WarmspringH res ervaiioii are making arrange ments io conduct a dry farming experiment station near, the agenci , for ihe. purpose of mak ing a thorough test of the vari ous dry farming methods advo cated throughout the semi-arid legions of the West, and to de termiue ihe best uiethod of con serving the moisture, eo impor tant to successful lamming in f hi;- district, where the. rainfall is deficient in many years. Iu i his connection it may be stated that Superintendent Covey and Ins assistants a the Agency ' have been greatly iuteretjted in, the "Campbell system"- of dry laud farming, the principles of which have been so successfully followed iu other semi arid re gions of the West. Mr. Coyey has bought a Campbell subsur- face packer, and will give the Campbell methods a thorough" trial at the experiment furm. In connection with the exper- . imeutal vyork, Mr. Covey has. addressed letters to a number of farmers in this section, mak- " trig inquiries regarding methods , of cultivation, kind of crops and general results obtained by . them. This inf umatiou will be of great advantage to them in carrying on their experiments, and it is urged that those who receive these inquiries will feel sufScieut interest to send a prompt reply. The experimen tal dry land farm at the Agency will be of great benefit to all the aimers of this locality, as a lemonstration of what can be iccompli8jied by the so-called 'scientific sou culture" in -this section for the land at the Agency to be employed for the purpose is practically identical with that of the high plateau lands ot this region. uid the, conditions us to climate i ud rain fa I are the same. Iu lis letter, Mr. Covey states that hey will be glad to iurnisli luv one desiring it information regarding the results of their experiments at any time. FILING ON CASCADE WATER POWER A press dispatoh from Eu gene says: b. v . uurtis, ot San Francisco, who during the past wo years has made numerous lings on water power sites on several different streams in Western Oregon, including the MoKenzie, the Willamette and the Sautlam Rivers, ha filed with the clerk of Lane County. i notice of appropiiation of 13,- 000 inches of the waters of Odell Lake, in the eastern end of Lane C unity. He has located a di al to extend several miles west' and flow int Salt Creek. It is thought Curtis is work- ng lor tue boutmug racuic Company, which had several crews of surveyors in that viciu- ty during the past year ascer aiiiing the amount of power to )e developed from the different streams, with a view probably to utilizing it some day in the operation of trains over the mountains when the proposed no lrom JNutrou into Eastern Oregon is built.
