RELIC OF ANCIENT TIMES.
Indian Mortar and Pestle Found Un
der Ulg Juniper Tree,
While clearing laud' on the R B.
Mutzig ranch near the Swalley
bridge the other day the Lucier
boys unearthed a fine old Indian
mortar and pestle. It was under
n juniper tree that was three
feet in diameter, and the roots
of the tree were twined about the
mortar and held it tight until
they were chopped away. The
mortar, the cavity of which was
filled with earth, looked so much
like other stones that no atten
tion was paid to it at first, but
when it was thrown aside and
the soil shaken out of it its unusal
character became apparent. The
pestle was tound near by.
These articles are perfect speci
mens of their kind. Both are
of a rather fine-textured lava rock.
The tnortnr is about seven inches
in diameter and stands eight inches
tall. The pestle is about seven
inches loug. They nre worn very
smooth, evidently by use in crush
ing seeds and berries for Indian
The age of the articles may be
guessed from the fact that a three
foot juniper had grown above them.
The tree was probably more than
250 years old and it is not likely
that the juniper began growing
immediately afttr the mortar was
deposited there. The preparation
of food by these impliments is un
known to the present generation of
Indians, even by tradition,
Mr. Mutzig values
f a bygone age and people as
among the choicest products that
linve yet come from hi5 ranch.

FULL FIRE PROTECTION.
No Half Way Service Satisfactory
What City b to Pay.
At the adjourned council meeting
Tuesday night there was consider
able discussion regarding the
charges to be paid by the city for
the use of water for fire protection.
The weight of opinion was in favor
of 55 a year per hydrant if service
is to be given by the hydraulic ram
only und about $35 if there is to be
a steam pump attached for emerg
ency occasions. The reservoir is
estimated to hold water sufficient
to run two streams about an hour
and n half. For all ordinary fires
this would suffice, but the council
is of the opinion that the watir
service should be able to stand any
call made upon it and to that end
there should be a .steam pump in
connection nnd u reasonable price
should be paid for the extra effi
ciency. The committee was in
structed to report further at a
meeting Thursday night.
Mayor Goodwillic was instructed
to appoint a committee of to coun
cilmen and citizen, s of which he
should be one, to attend to the re
ception of the railroad party on the
way to visit Bend. He named A.
M. DrakejohnStcidl, C A. Chap
man, E. F. Batten, Hugh O'Kane,
R. B. Mutzig, W. E. Guerin, jr.,
F. C Rowlee and J. M. Lawrence.
The council allowed $22 50 for
special police service nine days.
For advertising ordinances since
the organization of the city $97.80
nnd for legal notices for the in
corporation of the city ?34- were
ordered paid. The P. B. D. Co.
was paid $16.97 for lumber and
$4.18 was paid for too dog license
There was no quorum present
Thursday night and an adjourn
ment was taken to next Monday
John F. Circle, who this week,
with a party of fishermen, was up
the river about 16 miles, near the
Hunter place, reports that some
one has been killing- fish by the use
of dynamite, or some other explos
ive. Atone place the shore was
strewn with dead fish of all sizes.
This is a deplorable state of affairs,
and if our fish laws are not inforo
ed there will soon be no fish in the
Deschutes where now they are so

But two bids for carrying the
mail between Bend and Laidlaw

By their completion the bir canal
is enabled to carry water 12 miles
out. This will make it possible to
resume work on the Central Oregon
canal, and the force that has been
building laterals in the country be

MONEY FOR THE FOURTH
m FOR BEND'S BIG CELEBRAHON
Everybody too Busy to DIow Much
but the Preparations so
The real work of organizing a
Fourth of July celebration was set
on foot this week by a subscription
list of $500 to pay the expenses.
This money is to be expended in
prizes for games and contests
baseball, races, etc and in provid
ing an immense dance pavilion.
This has awakened great interest
and a fine list of events is assured.
F. Milo Lobdell this week scut
over from Paulina a large cartoon
of Beud's Fourth of July celebration
which is a clever caricature of num
erous Bend institutions and person
alities. Everything is in it, from
Dr.Coe'sband to The Bulletin. It is

Perry's Bluff Was Called.
"Humph! Got another railroad
craze over here have ye?
quoth Perry Poindexter, who was
over from Prineville to point out
the latest faults in this locality yes
terday, "say, in uei jioo tin?
Columbia Southern railroad will
not be extended 15 feet from its
present terminus at Shaniko in 10
years. This railroad talk's all
bosh. It's torn my rot and nonsense
and I've got money ihat says so."
"Here's $100 that says the Col
umbia Southern will begin building
out of Shaniko within 90 days,"
said Hugh O'Kane.
Perry didn't put up; he shut up.
For the first time in history Perry
Poindexter shut up.
On Monday night, at Prineville,

burning trash, which Mr, Cyrus
