Awbrey-Pryrcar irrigation ditch.
The purchase price was $5000.
Dr Turley enrne in last week to
look over ditch lands. His atten
tion was drawn to the Arnold ranch
and n brief examination convinced
him that it was just what he and
his friends wanted. He made n
bargain for the pnerty nud went
back to Umatilla, returning a few
days later with Messrs. Gist and
Van Tussel. They were pleased
with the place and the deal was
closed. They left Tucsduy to re
turn to Umatilla county. Mr. Gist,
who already has disNscd of his
interest there, will move in at once
willi his family and goods ami 35 to
in head of fine cattle. The others
will close up their affairs at WuMou
and come to the Dcschutus within
the coming two to three mouths.
Mr. Arnold has two other much

rented and he cannot get posuMiou
of them, lie will move with his
family to lictid and engage in car
paltering until he can get one of
the rented farms to move onto.
The new coiners are undettitoo.l
to have agreed to take ifio acres
tach of the Arnold ranch, thus
holding separate ranches rather
than holding it all iu common,
Tlie water rights in-quired with tae
