Entered as second class mail
matter September 1, 1514, at the
'postoffice at ; Maupin, Oregon, tin
'dcr the Act of 'March 3, 1870.
For a number of years the Ore
gon-Jjaahliigtoo' R&ilroad & Nav
igation Company1 baa conducted a
Vlguolia'' &ffij5afgti' of education
'investigation, ' experimentation and
"demonstration, having for its pur
pose tlie improvement of agriculture
'in the section of the country it
serves with transportation.
The management realized the
fact that two of the present impor
;tai)'. factors of business Were limited
'timber and mining'! In time the
mines might be worked out and
'the timber supply exhausted.
Agriculture, however, was endur
ing. The soil would go on' pro
ducing crops indefinitely. The
'rea'of cultivated land could lie
increased by tl)fi clearing of tini
bered lands, drainage 'of swamp
lands, the extension of thojrr)pated
area, by pumping,' tfy storage
'reservoirs and by a nipre conserva
tive and intelligent use of water.
The annual product's could be
vastly increased by better cultiva
tion, better seed and crop rotation.
jThe net returns 011 laboi and
caphal invested would be increased
'by the introduction of purebred
animals, better methods of care and
feeding, greater diversity of crop
production, and more systematic
and intelligent marketing of farm
To secure results along these
lines necessitated a diversity of
methods as various as the soil,
climate and individuals, and. re
quire an investigation first of the
conditions as thty existed and the
methods practised. For this pur
pose specialists weie employed to
visit the farmers in the various
localities, find out what they were
doing, how they 'were' doing it and
the results secured. The condus
ious reached from these investiga
tions were, briefly sumtnerized,
thaf to materially improve the
business of agrjculturp in the
prairie sections there should .(e

farms, greater diversity of products
and more people on the land, in

of the "common sense arguments
and good ' sense logic" used by
members of the Mosier delegation
we recall the eloquent phillinic de.
livered by one of their number who
pranced down the aisle of the court
room waving his arms like a Mexi
can revolutionist in distress exclaim
ing about as fdllow.si'VZtorW. Thi,
fur, why should a found want
to dp there, there is not a daw
ned thing out there ' but sage
orusn, coyotes ana jack rabbits!"
T hfs identical delegate', a few years
ago, made an address before a ses
sion of a Dtifur Sundav school
wherein he e i tolled the beauty of
Dufijrand its immediate vicinity and
discoursed at length upon the cer
tainty ot a wonderful development
for all this region. ' Now to place
the most charitable .interpretation
upoii this reversal of position, he
was mistaken in one instance or the;
other' and we leave to the voters to
decide Upon which occasion lie was
using "common sense arguments
and good sound logic. "
The delegates from Southern;
Wasco county did not oppose build
ing a road from Hosier to Fairbanks'
and djd not oppose the allotment of
$35,000.00 from The Daljes to
Fairbanks, but they did object and
still object, to the eupenditure ol
$1.73,000.00 for a 24 foot boulevard
over the river route from Mosier to
The Dulles, when for much less
riipney a creditable highway can be
built from Mosier over the Seven
Mile hill to The flaljes.' In the
meetings on the 27th, this joute
was favored by 'Mr. Richards,
spokesman for the delegates from
'Southern Wasco county, but no
serious consideration was given to it
by those favoring the more expen.
siye river ' ropfe. The' Dalles
Chroujcle, it) its article of which
the Bulletin prints a part, claims
that the Seven Mile hilj route is
now being considered as being less
expensive an as being capable of
serving more of the residents ot
Wasco county. The self confessed
price of "TUM-A-LUMP" will be sainc up
from now on 5Iow high it will be this winter
it ia hard to say.
THRIFTY FOLKS take advantage of the lower
summer rates by buying their winter "TUM-A-LUMP",

modesty of the Mosier delegates,
as voiced by Hie Bulletin, is pallid,
ic in the extreme, as nil iliey want
is an expendiluie ot $45,000.1.0
from Hood River county line to
Mosier and $173,006.00 fora boule
vard 24 feet in widdi over (.lie most
expensive route to The Dalles, a
route which woufd not benefit near,
ly many of tile residents of the
county as would the route over
Seven Mile hill.
Again re aclc the people of
Wasco 'cotlnty Vvhc'ther or not. as
the Bulletin maintains, the stand of
the delegate's from Southern Wasco
county-was, both comic and trag-j
ic,' Also, we invite yout1 attention
to the Bulletin's statements regard
ing ''unparalleled nerve)' and the
self opinionated representative
from Dttfur" and to the assertion
ol the Bulletin that "the Dufur dis
trict is not without for more than
her full share of nerve, effrontery,
egotism and self importance, and at
tne same tune lacking 111 the broad
minded and unselfish spirit that is
most Obligatory and essential to the
best interests of Wasco county at
large." While considering these
assertions cf the Mosier Bulletin
bear lu mind the fact that Dufur
acted only in unison with the other
delegates from " Southern Wasco
county at all times' and upon all
questions and that tiiere never has
been any desire of these delegate
to act otherwise, aud then decidi
for yourselves Whether or not these
wild allegations of the Bulletin fttl
nil 1 tie requirements ot common
sense argument and good sound
The Bulletin also states that
"Dufur seems to lose sight of the
original and paramount obiect ol
the matter in question, the issue of
bonds for the purpose of building
the'Columbia River highway.." In
reply we simply quote from the
letter of the Wasco County Good
Roads Association to the voters of
Wasco county, September 30, last,
which under the heading ''Let
Wasco County Be Progressive"
reads as follows; "Let us make
tarm life more pleasant by giving
to the farmers of the county good
roads, relieving them from many;
burdens and enabling them to
mingle more freely, to their mutual
benefit and improvement.''
The attempt of the Mosier Bulle-:
tin to befog the issue by casting
odium upon Dufur is a cheap trick
which will avail nothing, as the
voters of Southern Wasco county'
are well informed upon all phases'
of the bonding question and such
tactics will not disrupt the perfect
understanding which has enabled
them to stand for theil just lights
and fiiey will coututie to present a
united tronf upon tins matter and
there is not a sound argument with
which their position can be assailed.

Why is it every school house in

over it in nice weather but Tytvh

conspicuous bv its absence there.1
Now that shows lack of patriot

teach the pupils to love the flag,
teach them what it stands for
and should teach them to care
for it and never allow it to be
trailed in the dirt, but if they
find one that has been carelessly
