CHANGE OF k YEAR
The Sagebrush is Fading
SUPERSEDED BY PINE FIELDS
Trntinformntlon nt the lixpcrlnant

Crops In llxcellcnt Condition
A year tmu the I'riucvillc road
leaving hcrid plunged into a sage
brush and junipvr wilderness brok
en with rocky ridges, as soon as the
town wmleft, and for 20 miles there
was nothing to break the monot
ony of the journey, nothing but
the mile iksK Now a number of
thrifty settlers arc "doing business"
in this stretch of country, which is
'already won to usefulness and
beauty. Within two miles of IJeiid,
along that rond, about 250 acres
arc in crops for the first time and
many more acres will be ready for
fall sowing. A year ago this was a
rouged .Icheerless, forbidding region.
Water, labor and brnins have
worked the transformation, and
there never was a greater change
in any part of Crook county
.Starting from town there is the
Wiest houiustciul, on which 40 acres
have been cleared and arc now
green with growing grain. A little
beyond is the lilhs tract of 80 acres
of ditch laud, half of which has
lx.tfii clt.ired and is now being
plowed for .sowing. Next t'o tlwt
I)r Coons tins a tract of 40 acres,
most of which is now green with
growing grain. Then comes the
experiment farm of the Deschutes
Irrigntiou & Power Company
where 100 acres are devoted to
model farming. Hurkholtz and
Heau have about 30 acres newly
planted on their respective tracts
ml'oiuing the experiment farm.
Ilcyond conies the ranches of Adam
Kot.mnn. the two Ifcudricksousaud
others dotting the desert and re
deeming it to profit and beauty
The clearing and leveling and
flumiug and ditching have brought
thccompany'scxpcrimcut farm into
fine condition. The clearing and
leveling has been in charge, of
Charles I?. Reed and the prepara
tion of the soil and seeding and cul
tivation of crops has been under
the sujwrvision of Professor Klias
Nelson The results so far attained
are .so highly gratifying that Super
intendent Rowlec takes much pride
in showing visitors the place to
illustrate the possibilities of the
Deschutes irrigated lauds.
Three forties are included in this
experiment farm. At first it was
supposed that less than two forties
could be cultivated, for it was a
rather rough and unpromising tract
The remainder was supposed to be
good pasturage. Now it is found
that 100 acres of the land is ex
cellent for uops, leaving only 20
acres of waste or pasture laud.
And the reclaimed area makes one
of the prettiest farms in the country
One of the first surprises for the
visitor to these thrifty farms is the
soil, which does not at all suggest
the desert. It has good color and
stays where put. The drill rows of
gram show clearly across the fields
The "checks" 11 ml furrow? em
ployed in irrigating do not mar the
lots at oil.
Water is introduced on every
part of the experiment farm. It is
applied in various ways to various
crops in various conditions and a
careful record :s kept of Hie results.
Grain is subjected to irrigation by
different plans. Heels in experi
ment tanks have the water carefully
weighed out to them, the quantity
varying from .nothing to complete
saturation. It may be said in
passing that just how the results
seem to favor a very small artificial
application of water for beets.
I'lom the evaporation tank it is
found thus far that the natural
evaporation of water in this locality
is about air inch a day. That is
the surface of the water is lowered
an inch in n day. At the end of
the season this will afford basis for
Aside from the experiments with
water, and not less important, came
the experiments with plants. There
is a great variety ot crops on the
100 acres of model farm. One plut
has 1 1 kinds of lettuce. Radishes,
turnips, currots, potatoes ami Other
roots appear for their proper atllount
of attention. While the experi
ments with these products ate in
progress they are tried On the
market, and they nrc snapped up

in more delicious vegetables than
come from the new farm.
There arc fields of oats and vetch,
oats and peas and then the three
sowed .separate. There are dry
land crops and wet land crops.
Some were put in very early and
some planting is yet to be done.
Mr. Nelson thinks very early seed
ing will be bent fo' some crop and
very late for others, but middling
early seeding has not been satisfac
tory this crthoti. A combination
of cool nights and hot days that
fell between the two extremes did
The practical side of the enter
prise is not lost sight of while
theories are being tested. The ex
periment fields will yield large quan
tities of roots, grain, vine products
and forage at this season's harvest
and the income from these will go a
long way toward paying the ex
penses of the experiment work.
This farm has already proved a
gratifying success. Only the size
of the success remains to be demonstrated.
TWO GAMES OF BALL SCHEDULED
Many Other Sports, Fire Works,
Oratory and Everything to
Make the Day Orcat.
Two weeks from next Tucsdax
the people of the city of Hcud and
surroiiuding.couutry will celebrate
the I'ourth of July in a manner that
will long be remembered if the
present plans of the committee on
celebration are carried out. A
lengthy programme of interesting
and exciting events has' been ar
ranged, beginning with a big pa
rade in the morning and ending
with an out-door dance, in pavillion
100x100 feet especially erected for
After the procession in the morn
ing the crowd will repair to the
speakers' stand, where scats will
be provided in the shade of the
pines, for those who care to indulge
in this part of the entertainment.
A number of speeches will be
delivered by good orators and prom
incut citizens, with patriotic songs
In the afternoon the most in
teresting part of the programme,
for the young people, will take
place. There will be horse races,
sack races, egg races, flag races
foot races, fast and slow races for
young and old, fat and lean, mar
ried or otherwise. The boys wil'
probably be given a chance at the
greased pig and there will be lemon
ade, ice cream, peanuts and cracker-
jack in abundance
1 wo games of base ball, one
with the Priueville, and one with
the Warm Spring Indian team, arc
also on the lis' of events, and the
Indian brass baud will assist our
own band to furnish music for the
day. Come to Bend and celebrate
Same Old Story.
The Priueville ball team played
the home boys again last Sunday
The score was 7 to 16 in Bend's
favor, which is about all that may
be said of the game. It was a one
sided affair from the start and
every one lost interest. Bilycu
pitched good ball for Bend and the
home boys' fielding was also a
feature of the game.
The visiting team played in hard
luck from the beginning and the
home boys piled up a big score in
the curly part of the game. In the
fith inning Prineville's catcher,
Ford, got n hot foul tip that put
his right hand out of business and
retired him from the game.

TO GET SUGAR PLANT
6,000 Acres Near Bend
for Sugar Beets.
STANLEY 6i HOPKINS AT UF3AD
When Land Is Producing Mill
be Bullt-'Startlnsfof an lm
porta nt Industry.
Secretary Fred S. Stanley, of the
D. I. & P. Co., and F H. Hop
kins, until recently of the brokerage
firm ol Downing & Hopkins, came
up from Portland this week and se
lected 6,000 acres of land on the
Central Oregon canal a dozen miles
southeast ot Hcud for a beet snar
enterprise. This land will be taken
by their friends who will at once
begin improvements and expect to
raise a crop next season The plan
contemplates the building of a sugar
mill and having control of enough
production to insure its success.
Outsiders will also be encouraged
to raise sugar beets and the size of
the mill to be constructed will be
governed by the amount of land
put in to beets.
"I believe there is no part of the
United Statts so well adapted to the
beet sugar industry as this locality,"
said Mr. Stanley. "We have ex
amined the question pretty thor
oughly and arc convinced it will
ic unusually successful here, so
we arc going into it with confi
dence. We have selected the land,
Wuter will be flowing out to it in
the coming two or three weeks nn J
the work of clearing and prepjring
the soil will then be taken up. We
expect to have a crop next season "
It was suggested to Mr Stanley
that better transportation facilities
would be necessary for a successful
"You may read our faith by our
acts" he responded. "We realize
that a railroad is essential to the
development of such an enterprise
and in the face of such realization
we are going right ahead. I thor
oughly believe there will be a rail
road to Bend next year."
Mr. Stanley would not go into
let lils but he intimated that this
railroad would connect with the
Columbia Southern. He spoke,
however, of another line that had
money up for a preliminary survey
through this region. "Portland
money has awakened to the necess
ity for a road to Central Oregon,"
snkl he "and it has taken a position
that wilt insure the building of
such a road."
