FOR GREAT SOUTHERN
0. Ii. Harpham of Wapinitia, was in
town last Monday, looking after bis bus
iness interests at tbis place. Ho says
that tho Great Southern, or fauftir road,
has a parly of engineers at work now,
surveying their extentlon to Tyh Val
ley, and it is believed that actual con
struction on tho extension Will begin
dating the present summer. Tho ex
tension of the fireat Southorh will tap a
very productive country, and greatly in
crease tho tralllc of that lide.
.Sir. Ilnrpham saya that he has un
bounded confidence however, in the
extension of tho 31 1. Hood line into this
section, and he is (inn in tho belief that
it will be the first road built into this
country. The 31 1. Hood people', bo says,
have surveyed a route down tho oaat
side of the mountains, coming down
Bear creek to Beaver creek, following
down that creek to the Warmspring
river, and then dowti that stream to the
Deschutes'. Such a route would give
theiri an easy pass down the triountains
and into Central Oregon, and the char
acter of the present work on that line
seems to indicate that such an exten
sion may be among the railroad devel
opments of the near future.
Madras Odd Fellows Celebrate Their
Tho 89th anniversary of the founding
of the Oild Fellows' order in the United

of ritualistic work, explaining the or

Rev. Ii D. Brown and 3Ir,. DeVinney,
and among the other speakers were G.
Springer of Culver, and Giiy Lafollette
and C. B Dinwiddie of l'rineville. It.

tions in a very pleasing manner.
Following the exercises at the lodge
rooms, the members of the order and
their guests repaired to the Turner
building where an elaborate supper was
served, this feature of the evening's en

Every time an automobile party starts
out of Portland for a trip into Central
Oregon, the Portland papers build a
column of so of paper railroads into this
long-neglected country. The latest
story is to the effect that a company of
Portland and Seattlo capitalists will
build a line from Condob to Bend, the
road to be operated -by electricity, which

COLD WEATHER DAM
AGES EARLY FRlilf
Peach Crop Suffered BadlyGrail
And Vegetables Also Slightly
Severely cold weather last Friday
night, and again on Monday night of
this week, did great damage to the fruit
crop of this section, and from present
reports it id believed that only tho har
dier kinds of fruit escaped the blighting
frost. Prospects for a big fruit crop
were noVer better throughout thie dtet
trict than they were up until Friday ol
last tooeft, but tho outlook is discourag
ing now. Some idea of tho cold Inay be
gathered from the fact that watering";
troughs and buckets of standing water
were covered with an inch bl ice Satur
day morning, and from pntrips and Wa:
tor-barrels were suspended icicles si
inched long, proclaiming the soVorily ot
tli cold. On 3Ionday nighl there was
another freeze, rjuito as severe, and any
of the tenderer fruits which escaped the.
frost of Friday night, was eatlgbt by the
A report from Culver Tuesday morn;
ing says the Cove Orchard, the largest
and most successful orchard in thecoutt:
ty, sufTered heavily in the freeze of las'
Friday hlght. The peach crop was de
stroyed completely, and even the bar;
dier fruits suffered some damage. Thx
Cove Orchard is located in Crooked
river gorge, 1100 feet below the sur:
rounding plateau, and it would not have
been damaged by a less severe freeze.
Other smaller fruit growers of thi?
section report even greater losses'prc-portionately.
EXPERT TO EXAMINE
Before Deciding To Operate Freight?
L. B. Lafollette, one of the promoters
of the traction freighting project,. Who
was in town last Friday on his way
home from California, says that it ha
not been definitely decide! upon tc
make, a second trial, trip with the trac
Hon outfit now at Shaniko.. While, ji!
Cajifornia 3Ir. Lafollette saw the ofli
cials oi the Holl Manufacturing Co.:,
who manufacture, the traction engines,
and he says that they will . send an ex
pert to look over the roads between this
place and Shaniko, before deciding to
attempt to revive the freighting projeft.
The expert W ill be here within the next
few days, and upon his report will de'-
pendthe action of the manufacturers',
who may decide to abandon the project
entirely. If, however, the export be
lieves that tho freighting enterprise ii
feasible, a second triaj. trip of the bi
tractiou train will be made at on).,
fhe statement made last week tha
the secobd trial trip would be mtyJe
was, therefore! premature, as the deci
ion of Uie manufacturers will depend
upon thp opinion of the man whom they
send to investigate.
