LOST IN THE WOODS.
A Hunting Party of Bend Men Were
Unable to Find Camp.
A hunting party composed of J.
l'rank Stroud, George Whitsett,
Sr., and Albert and Kmery Seales
started for the timber southeast of
Bend last Friday morning and met
with several interesting experiences
(luring the trip.
First, Whitsett lost his rifle out
of the wagon, and of course im
mediately started back over the road
to look for it when the loss was dis
covered. Alter lie uau iceu gone
some little time one of the men ran
back over the route btit a short dis
tance unit found the gull lyiiig in
the road and hidden by the sage
brush. Whitsett hud walked right
over it. A horse was then put into
service and it messenger started
after the fleeing Whitsett, who was
overtaken about five hiiles back on
the road, still looking for the lost
Albcrt'Seales and Stroud were
riding horses, Ihe other two men
dnvjiig ilt Ihe Wagon. The two
horsemen left the party and
Started lo circle a butte distant a
few mites. Stroud was to ride
around one side, Seales around tho
other. The understanding was thai
the four men should met at cer
tain point nnd camp far the night.
Seales and Stroud failed to meet ott
the far side of the butt. It devel
oped that thero was a. wisundei
stnndiug as to tho camping place,
and both horsemen, like the old
time vbos, were, for a few hours,
lost ii the woods. Stroud fortu
nately found th tracks left by the
wagon and soon located the camp
Scales, however, was not so fortu
nate. Darkness came on nnd he
covered many miles wandering
through ttic timber before he finally
located the rest of the party late
that night. He tells that after find
ing the road, he followed the wagon
tracks in the darkness by keeping
lighted a torch of pine needles, and
says the only thing that saved him
from a cold and lonely death was a
pocketful of matches.
It was an unsuccessful trip. Km
ery Scales was the only one to sec
any game three deer antl was
unable to get cither of them. The
party returned to town Sunday.
MASQUERADE PLEASED MANY
15. 1H. Mall Filled with a Jolly Crowd
on New Year's Mght.
A great success was the masquer
ade ball at the B. M. hall in Bend
lust -Monday evening. The hall
was filled at an early hour with a
goodly number of masquers and
many spectators. The costumes
were varied and some amusing, the
music good, everybody in good
humor, and all enjoyed themselves.
Two prizes of $3.50 cacti were
offered for the most original and
best sustained characters. Miss
Maggie Anne, as a Norwegian
peasant girl, received one, and P.
Milo Lobdcll in the character of
welt, of an Irish lassie secured the
other. The costume of the Nor
wegian girl has won three prizes at
Bend dances. George Brosterhous,
Ora Poiudextcr, and Mrs. Effie
Poindcxtcr were the judges.
Other costumes that deserve
mention were those of Miss Anna
Johnson as "Blue Bells;" Mrs.
Rene West as "Night;" J. C. Lew
is, a Japanese gentleman of im
portance, and Karl Wright, a Span
ish cavalier. Fred Lucas surprised
everyone iu his representation of a

ing. FIRE AT JOHNSTON RANCH.
Small Blaze Monday Morning Burns
Out End of Bunk House.
A lively little fire occurred at the
Johnston ranch last Monday morn
ing about 4 o clock, when a portion
of the floor and one end of the bunk
house were badly burned.
Barney Lewis and George Hobbs
had been hauling water to the ranch
from Powell Butte, and returned
from a long cold trip about 1 o'clock
that morning. They started a very
hot fire iu the stove before retiring.
This heater is on the camp stove
order, no bottom in it, fastened to
the floor, with a thick layer of dirt
inside to protect the floor from burn
ing. It is thought the fire the boys
started was so hot that it set the
floor afire beneath the dirt; that it
smouldered away until it reached
the corner of the house, when the
wind fanned it into flames. Things
moved rather rapidly then Tor a
time, with the boysrUtining around
on the cold ground barefooted
zero weather carrying out their
bedding and clothes. The fire was
soon put out after damaging only
the floor and one end of the house.
Qeneral Mailag'er ot the D. I. & P.
Interested In big Qas Merger.
The Bulletin is iu receipt of a
copy oF the livening Dispatch,
Columbils, Ohio, iu which appears
a picture of J, O, Johnston, general

account is given in the Columbus

consolidation of three large gas
companies in Columbus. Mr. John
ston is president of the Columbus
Gas Light & Heating Co., one of
the corporations involved iu the
merger, and the article contains an
interview with him. He is quoted
as saying that "the amalgamation
of three companies into one and
other economies will represent a
saving of 5125,000 a year." The
stock of the consolidated concerns
will lie close to Su.ooo.ooo.

WHATBEND HAS DONE
A Good Showing for First
MUCH WORK ACCOAIPLISHHD
The Task of Organizing and Financing
a City Government lias Been Well
Meet-Past Debts All Paid.
The city of Bend starts the new
year with all current expenses of tho
past year paid in full and not a cent's
indebtedness to carryover nnd ham
per the development that is certain
to come during the year 1906. Wliat
already has been accomplished in
building the foundation for a city
government has been done by tlip
expenditure of much, hard work;
and much serious, thinking and
planning. Starting with no organ
ization perfected, n,R ordinances qr
rules of procedure ajlpptcd, nq rnoq
ey in the treasury( and riot a ccpt
coming intq thp city's exchequer
from taxation, the beginning pf the
second year of its corporate exist
ence finds a tqunjpipal government
in full swjn,g sidewalks jqid,
streets opened, public buildings,
erected, ordinances passed, and
taxes for future expenses levied.
Briefly stated, thp work can Ixs
summed up as follows!
A first-chum (choal system has been
furnished. September, lWI, the district
employed one teacher. Sow three are
necessary, and another will probably 1m
added to lie cor-pain a few mouths. Also
a fine six-room schoolhousc is being
Klevcn hydrants liavp been, purchased
I'irc house, 2$x3fl fee. erected, cost,
Forty acres of land purchased from,
U. S. government for a city cemetery.
This tract has been fenced and partly
cleared, sun eyed and platted into I0L1.
Complete cost, ( 2.10 to 00.
One policeman lias been emnlorcd all
the time; twb A part of the past year.
Salary ranged from f(VJ to $75 pcrmqntli.
A city jail erected, costing fCOO.
Considerable street improvements.
Ordinances aggregating ,500 lines
Supplies purchased, such as record
books, blanks, etc., etc. for the proper
discharge of the city'a business.
In audition to the items above enum
erated, purchase lias been made of
complete fire equipment costing 1,500
and consisting of two hose carta and
1,000 feet of hose, nozzels, ladders, axes,
etc. Payment for this equipment ia to
be made during the years IDOO and 11)07.
The above conveys only a smalt
idea of the difficulties encountered
and overcome by the "men who had
this work to perform. An adequate
conception of the labor involved can
only be appreciated by those who
have at some time taken such a task
at the very beginning and carried
it to a satisfactory completion.
As a fair sample of the quality of
trie work performed, it is only nec
essary to refer to the many compli
mentary notices gtvt-tj by outside
papers concerning Bend's ordN
nances, It has been stated by theso
that Bend undoubtedly possessed
the best codo of city laws of any
town of like sue iu the state.
Aiide from the work accomplished
and paid for by the city, private en
terprises have- given the city a first-
class water system, connections by
phone with the outside world, and
a free public library and reading
Catholic Church News.
Owing to frequent and very se
vere attacks of sickuess, Rev. Path-
er Hickey has been unable to at
tend Bend as per previous an
nouncements, but seems sufficiently
recovered to come now. The rev
erend gentleman will be in Prine
ville Friday morning, Jan. 5, and
after celebrating mass there will
take the noon stage for Bend. He
will baptize, attend sick calls, and
celebrate mass in Beud Sunday
Jnn. 7, and wishes oil his people to
attend that steps may be taken
towards the establishment of u
Catholic church here.
The members of the congrega
tion and tho Bend people generally
will greatly appreciate the father's
self sacrifice In coming at this in
clement season, nnd in such uncer
