Two Hundred and Fifty , Thousand
Acres Lying Northwest From

and Good Reservoir Sites.
Echo lias
The Sand, Sunshine and Water
The Government lias the money.
Irrigation is paramount to
everything else in the settlement
and development of this section.
We have the sands, the climate,
the water and the transportation
facilities in Echo and what is
wanted is for the Irrigation
Congress to provide, through
the government, reservoirs, can
als and laterals with whicli to
conserve our water supply and
convey it onto these arid lands.
There are hundreds of thousands
of acres of the very choicest sage
brush lands lying in the vicinity
of Echo awaiting reclamation,
and which with irrigation will
not only add untold millions in
golden wealth of products to
the country, but will provide
for and sustain many happy and
prosperous homes, and give to
tho people of the overcrowded
and swelterirg districts of the
east an opportunity to breathe
free air, enjoy the independence
and freedom of a delightful,
healthful climate, excellent pub
lic schools, and to get hold of
a piece of God's heritage in soil
that is destined to bring peace
and happines to many thousands
of people.
The East is looking to the
West for homes and land invest
ments. We of tho West are
conversant with the many gold
en opportunities offered here;
with the arid conditions exist
ing, and of the water available
to cover these arid lands and
bring them into a state of pro
ductiveness, It is to the East
erner that e wish to tell of our
wonderful resources and oppor
tunities, and to the Irrigation
Congress add Reclamation offic
ials of our waterways, reservoir
sues, etc.. so mai tney may in

Lying northwest from Echo
there is a body of land contain-
ipp:oxin:ateIy jO,(H0 acres
hoice shuo brush lands.
Ample water for this land can
b! procured from the John Day
river; good reservoir sites are
available for storing the water,
with good diversion points at
the dam sites and an easy form
ation of country through which
to construct canals ana laterals
to convey the water. It is said
on good authority that the en-
tire cost of putting in the sys -
tern and covering this 250,000
acres of virgin sage brush soil
with water will not exceed
$1,000,000. Aside from the re
claiming of this vast body of
land power can be generated for
electrical and other purposes
sufficient to operate electric
railroads and supply tl e towns
for many miles around with
lights and ample power for all
The Irrigation Congress meets
in Spokane August U to lil, and
the delegates from Echo will
impress upon the Congress the
advisability of the government
taking up the John Day project
and reclaiming these lands with
out further waste of time.

of its kind in America will ex
hibit at Echo Thursday night,
August 12. On this occasion
the famous old play will be pre
sented in as new and elaborate
a form as modern thought and
stage invention will permit; and
doubtless the big Pavilion Thea
tre will be filled to its utmost
capacity during their perform
ance here. The principa char
acters in this grand old play
will be interpreted by a very
comjH'tent cast of lady and gen
tlemen artists that have been
selected especially for their
ability to give a correct inter

vaudeville artists consisting of
jubilee singers, buck and wing
dancers, wire walkers, hoop
rollers, etc., are introduced
throughout the play making it
the strongest production of this
popular drama ever presented
to the public. A pack of Siber
ian blood hounds, horses, ponies,
donkeys and an unusually gor
geous transformation scene are
also among the many features
oi this granu spectacular pro-
duct ion.
