The Sage Rat Pest,
From different sections of the
county comes reports of consider
able damage to gram aud
alfalfa fields from sage rats.
These most harmful rodents are
multiplying rapidly and seem to
thrive on strychnine. These pests
have proven most bothersome in the
Palouse valley in Washington and
Idaho .and vigorous efforts should
be made', to eradicate them in the
Governor Will Come to Bend

morning from Governor Chamber
lain announcing that he and prob
ably the other members of the state
land board will be in Bend on Tues

ficial and instructive meeting.
A more extensive announcement
will be made next week.
BIO IRRIGATION SCHEME.
Portland Firm Plans to Water Agency
Plains and Haystack Districts.
An undertaking that if carried
to completion will prove a great
blessing to a portion of Crook
county, is now being projected,
namely a plan to irrigate the
Agency Plains and Haystack
country from the waters of the Des
chutes river. The firm of Forbes &
Goudy of Portland are behind the
project. The Journal says:
The filing provides for So.ooo
inches or 2,000 cubic feet of water
per second. It i to. be taken out
of the Deschutes river at a point
north of the Deschutes Irrigation S:
Power Company's district. A ca
nal 60 feet in width and 10 feet in
depth will be fed by a flume of like
dimensions from the point of diver
sion of the waters. At this point a
dam about 200 feet in. length is to be
constructed for the purpose of hold
ing back the waters and fcediug the
canal. The latter is to, be carried
northward through n canyon
across Crooked rive- and thence
northward through the heart of the
Agency Plains country toward
Madras. Laterals will ramify from
the main canal and carry the
water to every portion of the dis
trict so that more than 30,000 acres
will be reclaimed.
This, water is not only to be used
for Irrigation purposes but provision
will be made to supply the farmers
and settlers of the district with
water for domestic purposes and for
use in watering stock.
It is proposed to build an electric
plant at the dam on the Deschutes
river aud another at the point of
intersection of the canal with
Crooked river, where ample power
for operating the plants will be af
forded. From these plants currents
Will be distributed through the
territory! especially ta Madras and
the other towns th,at are springing
up in tha district.

SAFE FROM FLOODS
High Water Is Unknown
in the Deschutes River.
OTHER PUCES OVERFLOWED
Crops Destroyed and Property Dam
aged Elsewhere, but Never in the
Another striking evidence of the
superiority of the Deschutes river
as a model irrigating stream has just
been emphasized within the last
two weeks. While other streams
rageand tear, overflow their banks,
drown out fields and gardens, wash
away bridges and railroad tracks,
the ideal Deschutes flows on in its
old accustomed manner causing no
one injury, and furnishing glad
water for the thirsty soil of the
great Deschutes valley.
A week ago swollen rivers in the
Pendleton and Walla Walla regions
caused damage to crops, bridges,
light and power plants, etc., esti
mated at a million dollars. At
Pendleton, Or., the levee of tha
Umatilla river broke, inundating
the lower end ot the town. Cellars
were filled with water and thousands
of dollars' worth of merchandise in
the business section destroyed.
Light and power were cut off from
the town owing to the power com
pany's plant being submerged.
The same condition was true at
Walla Walla. Sidewalks torn up,
lawns destroyed and residences
flooded. Loss, $50,000. At Free
water, Or., thousand) of dollars'
worth of property destroyed, and
the dispatches report that 500 peo
ple haye takeu refuge in the hills.
The greatest loss, however, has
been felt in the rural districts. The
lowlands lying along the rivers
have been flooded and many acres
of alfalfa and garden crops have
been completely destroyed. In
some places the alfalfa has been
washed completely away, leaving
nothing but bare fields. All through
the affected region railroad tracks
are in bad shape.
How different it is at Bend and
vicinity! While all this damage
and some loss of life has been,
happening at Pendleton, Walla
Walla and vicinity, people have
been living in peace and security
along the banks of the Deschutes.
There may have been a rise of a few
inches in this steady old stream,
nothing more. While others have
experienced injury, the Deschutes
valley has been blessed with an
abuudance of rainfall that will iu-
sure a bountiful harvest this fall.
Rainfall in abundance but not too
The great Deschutes vally is
fertile. It never is damaged by
swollen streams or devastating
storms. It is the ideal 'place to
