Th6 Ilaldwin Sheep & Land Company,
which Is pasturing about ooo head of
sheep on the Warmsprfng reserVation ihls
year, is building a small foot b'rWge
across the Deschutes river nbo'ut four
miles below the ferry. The bridge will
be used in crossing the sheep to and from
the reservation. It is suspended on ca
bles and will be about 30 inches wide
The company finds this a much cheaper
plan of getting their sheep to and from
the reservation than tft'ln them over on
the ferry, where the charge is about one
cent per head each way, and they also
experience less difficulty In crossing them.
