The railroad news of greatest im

Dewhutci, nt the mouth of the Des

No eatitnate of the cost of the road can

if the crde nlottjj the DcKhutcs does

be made uniform in every way with the
mileage of the O. R. & N. Co.
Tlic road to Ilcml will he the longest
feeder the llnrriinan system has ever
pushed toward Central Oregon. Its pur
pose is to get the increasing business
throughout the Deschutes valley and in
the adjacent territory. Por "0 miles it
will parallel the Columbia Southern, an
other O. R. t N. brunch, but will draw
freight from a section too far removed to
licKned by that line. The propov.il
Hue will bear the same relation to the
main line that the Columbia Southern,
the Condon branch and the Hcpiincr
branch do, but the new road will be
twice an long ai the longest of these, and
will bring trains Into Southern Oregon
that will go far toward solving the trans
portation problems that have so long
faced that isolated section.
KAVORS LINK FROM IIKNI).
It linn been sunpoed that the O. R. &
N. plan was ultimately to extend the
Columbia Southern from its prevent
terminus at Shanikoto Canyon City, but
south of Shaniko the extension would
find itself facing a difficult stretch of
country hccaunc of the mountainous
nature of the ground. A line up the
Deschutes to the rich country around
Ilcnd, besides mrving the wheat fields
adjacent to the river en route, looks
more attractive to the linrriutan officials
than any other cntrunce into Central
If the preliminary "nrvcy Is approved
a 11 feasible route up the Deschutes,
which in a swift stream with steep tanks
much of the way, the interior of the
state will lie entered at once. In con
iicction with the Oregon Katteni, pro-
icetedby the Harriman Hues, the Bend

KILL A BLACK BEAR.
Largo Animal Shot at The Meadows
by William Ilrock and M. 0. Coe.
The old grizzly of many years
and much local fame still lives. Uut
a certain black bear that left his
winter's bed too soon has met his
Waterloo. His furry coat is now
in the possession of Wm. H. Brock
and M. G. Coe here in Bend
The hunters who left for 'the ice
caves region last week with the in
tention of heading off the bear
supposed to be the big grizzly that
had slept in the bay at the Donkel
place at The Meadows, returned to
town without having found any
trace of the animal. They had
made such diligent search for miles
through the ice caves region that
they were confident he had not
passed that way, and felt quite pos
itive he was still hiding in the vi
cinity of the lava beds.
Therefore, Sunday morning W.
H. Brock, with his two hounds,
Nip and Tuck, Dr. U. C. Coe .and
M. G. Coe started for the Donkel
place. Arriving there they took up
the animals tracks and followed
them some distance, finding three
or four places where be had made a
bed for the night. Sunday night
Dr. Coe was forced to give up the
chase and return to Bend to attend
to professional duties.
The next day, Monday, after a
tiresome tramp the two remaining
sportsmen routed the animal out
during the afternoon and the dogs
soon treed him. It proved to be a
large black bear. It was an easy
matter to kill the brute after he was
Tbcjbear was killed six or seven
miles from the Donkel place near
the river. The question then was
how to get it back to the horses. It
was taken down stream in a boat to
the nearest point from where the
hunters had left the horses at Don
kel's. A sled was then built and
the bear given a ride. The men
walked. Mr. Coe reports it was n
most tedious job. First one man
would pull the sled a short distance,
then the other fellow would take a
turn. In many places the snow
was from three to four feet deep,
covered with a thin crust. This
would break and let the men
through, making very hard walk
ing. However, the bear was final
ly got to Donkel's and from there
to Bend, arriving here Wednesday.
The reports that reached Bend
last week regarding the size of the
tracks made by the bear at the Don
kel place were very largely exag
gerated. From the reports it was
supposed the big grizzly had again
made his appearance, but Brock
and Coe nre positive they got the
bear that made the tracks and slept
at the Donkel place.
COW POISONED TO DEATH.
Dr. W. S, Nkhol Loses a Cow From
Eating Water Hemlock.
Dr. W. S. ftichol lost a cov on
his rntich last Friday, all symptoms
indicating poisoning. She was
tttrued out Thursday, crossed the
river to where some other cattle
were feeding, nnd seemed to be in
usual condition, That night she
did not come back to the barn, and
the next morning the doctor started
out to find wx. She was found
dead, the carcass badly swollen and
nt a very high temperature. It is
supposed the animal had eaten some
water hemlock, br poison parsnip
ns it is more commonly called.
This is a Very poisonous plaht nnd
would cause death in a verv short
time. The doctor lost two horses
from the same cause last spring.

Mrs. Ralph Patterson Died
CAUSED BY A SEVERE COLD
Airs. Patterson Passes Away After
Much Suffering Caught Cold
Mrs. Ralph Patterson died a
the Caldwell home near Rostand
last Saturday. The immediate eauso
of her death was pneumonia, al
though other serious complications
developed. The remains were in
terred in the Rosland cemetery.
Thanksgiving night Mrs. Pat
terson attended a party at tho
Caldwell home. Returning to her
own home that evening, walking
through the snow, she caught a,
severe cold which caused a slight
illness but it was not considered
serious. This, however, soon de
veloped into a serious attack of
A few days after Thanksgiving,
one of the Caldwclls called on Mrs.
Patterson and found her so poorly
that they persuaded her to be
moved to their place where sho
could receive proper care. Mr.
Patterson and his son had been
trapping on Paulina mountain
during the winter and were absent
when Mrs. Patterson was taken
sick. Her condition rapidly grew
worse and Thursday of last wecl
Dr. Coe was called. He found her
delirious, being rational only a few
moments in the five hours he was.
in attendance. It was evident that
she was beyond help and nothing
could be done except to relieve the
sufferer from the severe pain as
much as possible. She lingered
until the following Saturday when
the end came.
Messengers had been sent after
the husband aud son and they re-,
turned in time to be at the bedside
when she passed away.

AN ELECTION NECESSARY.
Recent Appointment to Fill Vacancy
on School Board Illegal.
The recent appointment of Dr.
C. W, Merrill to the liend school
board to fill tho vacancy caused by
J. M, Lawrence's resignation, was
illegal in that the- law provides that
such vacancies must be filled by nn
election. Tho Jaw concerning this
matter bad bcon looked up and
nothing prohibiting an appoint
mant could be found. A letter of
inquiry to State Superintendent
Ackerman, however, brought the
answer that all vacancies must be
filled by an election. The election
is now set for Tuesday, Feb. 27.
Dr. Merrill, as chairman of the
board, had signed the call for the
election on establishing a high
school at Bend. This call is there,
