The Madras Pioneer
THURSDAY - JUNE 23, 1910
What's this the ubiquitous lit
tie flock of houses known 11s
Redmond is proposing to the
people of Crook County ? Now
that under the strongest kind
of a protest we knew how to
make, we have been forced to
help build an $S0,000 court
house for Piineville, they pro
poBe that we nhall have Red
mood for a county peat, located
just as tar away from us, less
than 20 miles from the present
one, offering absolutely no con
venience over existing condi
tions, and that, too, including
the moat unnatural division of
territory evrr dreamed of. Well,
STREET GRADES HAVE
DEPOSIT OF CLAY
What is believed to be a valuable de
posit of fire proof clay is being experi
mented with in the Opal Prairie coun
try. On the homestead of L. S. Lam
bert, the photographer, there is a basin
comprising about 10 acres, which ap
pears to be a deposit of clay which will
make first-claes pressed brick and pos
sibly fire-brick. Chunks of it have
been pressed into shape and burned in a
primitive way with the result that a
very satisfactory building material is
produced. The more it is burned the
finer it becomes, but as there has been
no one with technical knowledge of
such material who has made any tests
nor examined the clay or bricks, just
what may be expected of the discovery
cannot be stated.
Expert opinion is to be consulted to
determine the value of the deposit.
This basin acts as a natural water res
ervoir when the snows melt in the
spring. It seems to be impervious to
water, which stands until it is all evap
orated. The clay has stood all the fire
tests to which it has been subjected
thus far, and ueither cracks nor crum
bles. It is undoubtedly a valuable deposit
for the manutacture of common brick,
if it does not prove to be the very finest
of raw material for making pressed and
Oregon Trunk engineers this week
made surveys and notes for establishing
n street, sidewalk, nnd sewerage grade
on five of the principal streets of Mad
ras, and as soon as the figures are in
shape Engineer Griswold will turn the
report into the streets and public im
provement committee of the council.
This is the preliminary step taken by
the city for permanent work on the
streets, nnd will be followed by street
grading and the construction of cross
walks on the part of the city, and or
ders to property owners to construct
continuous sidewalks along their prop
