CHARACTERISTICS OP EACH
Correspondent Says Only the Root of
the Deschutes Plnnt Is Harmful
nnd Hint not for Horses.
DiMCiiimtA, Crook Co., Or. July
28 (To the Jvditorj In your last
issue I sec n note to the effect that
Dr. Nichol has lost two horses
through what he thinks is thcvatcr
hemlock and thinks that the horses
that died on the ditch work were
killed by eating the wild hay that
grows on the Deschutes river. I
do not think his horses died from
eating the wild hay or that they
got the poison from that source, as
the tops of the water hemlock arc
harmless and only the root will
jioi.son cattle 'and I do not think
it will poison horses at all, neither
the roots nor the tops. At least
I never heard of such a thing as
the water hemlock killing horse?
and it seems to me impossible for
the root of the weed to get into the
hay. If anyone is interested in
finding out il it will horses he can
find out by addressing the Agri
cultural College at Corvallis, Ore
gon. John Atkinson.
According to Farmers' Bulletin
No. 86, entitled "Thirty Poisonous
Plants of the United states," issued
by the department of agriculture at
Washington, water hemlock or
spotted jwrsley is found rarely on
the eastern s'ope of the Rockies
and is not mentioned as appearing
at all west of that range. This is
not conclusive, however, for dis
coveries of both plant and animal
life are frequently made on the
Pacific slope that have distinct re
lation with forms on the other side.
This side is too new for all products
to be known to science. The Bui

Another plant that is described is
the Oregon water hemlock, which
blooms in July and August, with
white clusters on stems three to six
feet tall, and has a fleshy, bulbous
root, which furnishes the bulk of
the poison. A piece of this as bip
as a walnut is fatal to a cow.
Professor Hedrick, of the Oregon
Agricultural College, believes that
more than too cattle are killed by
it every year in Oregon. This
seems to be the plant referred to by
Poison hemlock is described as
still another of tlioe fatally poison
ous plants, also known as spotted
parsley. It isnuativeof Kurope and
Asia but hus become naturalized in
the United States and is spread
from coast to coast. Its blossoms
appear in July and August in
showy clusters of white on hollow
stalks two to seven feet tall. Any
part of the plant is poisonous at nil
times, but the root is comparatively
harmless in the spring months
This is the plant with which
Socrates was killed.
The first two of these plants
grow in wet, marshy places, the
other in any old waste place.

GOVERNOR MERRICK GREATLY PLEASED
Tells Portland People About lt--Da-
kota People Come to Bend to
Sec if Crops Really Grow.
Messrs. Turney Johnston andStan
Icy, of the D. I. & P. Co., and their
guests, Governor Hcrrickand party,
had a fine trip across the mountains
to Lebanon last week. When tbev
reached Albany the citizens gave
them a reception that completely
captivated them. At Portland
Governor Hcrrick spoke glowingly
of the Deschutes country in a col
umn story in the Journal, saying
among other things.
" It K-ems to me that the irrigation
work 011 tile JJevchutes U a great pro
ject" said governor Merrick, "a work
that will Ik of itreat benefit to the state.

canals that are to reclaim 300,000 acres.
The reMilt of irrigation i wonderful,
.and which Itefore only knew the sage

an expanse of fertile fields, growing all
cereals and fodders, garden truck and
the luxuriesas well as the necessities of
agriculture. It seemed that almont any
thing in the line of agriculture common
to the country was found there, except
"The experiment station established
there, which is under control of the
ioverumeut, is doing good work. A rep
reM.nitatie lias been sent to take chance
of the station and is directing the vnl
liable experiment work in progress.
This insure to be of great Iwucfit to the
farmers taking the laud, as they are
taught the exact quantity of water re
quired for best results, and shown what
is too little or too much. The moit ap
proved methods of preparing the land
are taught. 1 11 every respect I found
the experiment station flurishitig.
"The transportation problem is going
to tic solved without any trouble on the
part of the people down there. Thev
sre now producing n tonnage tlwt will
bring the railways, wiOtotU bonus or
further effort "the eUlers coming in,
their supplies required and the produce
ready for the outside market will quickly
solve this problem. The production ol
the soil will lie tremendous in the near
future, for the water, all that is required
to make it phenomenally fertile, is being
"That is a good law under which this
work is being done. It is beneficial to the
jK-oplc in encouraging development and
in limiting the price which may be
charged for land."
Prauk Glass came in Tuesday
with n party of Kastern people who
had started for the Deschutes
country but met with so many
knockers that they were going
back without investigating-. Thej
were taken out to Powell buttes to
see the grain fields nnd fruits, came
to Kend to see the I). I. & P. Co.'s
experiment farm nnd the gardens
and went away convinced that
what they heard was untrue and
that this country would be richly
productive. The O'Neil garden
