Our old friend Wm. Altnow was
quite severely burned one day this
week while robbing bees nt his
home on Otis creek, says the Burns
Tuiieri-Hcrnld. He had covered
his head mid hands with mosquito
netting nnd his blower used to
smoke the bees began to burn free
ly. Mr. Altnow raised it to his
face to blow it out and in doing so
it caught the wrappings he had
about his face for protection. Iu at
tempting to smother the blaze out
with his hiiuds the coverings on
the latter caught fire, Mrs. Voegtly
came to his rescue, but he had a
narrow escape, his face nnd hands
being quite badly burned. lie
fenrs it has injured his eye sight.

A LAND OF PROMISE
Fertile Region Awaits Development.
HOMES I;OK AlANY PEOPLE
Twenty Miles South of Uend l.tcs
District with n Bright Future as a
Stock Raisins Country.
A country that will some day be
filled with prosperous nnd pleasant
homes, with many sleek aim well
fed cattle gracing on the meadows,
fattened porkers grunting in the
sty niid cackling poultry in the
barnyard, lies a lew miles south of
lleiul awaiting a development that
is not far distant. Last Saturday
a Bulletin representative joined a
party of fishermen nnd drove to
Roslaud, proceeding from there to a
place on the Deschutes river known
in local geography a the fish trap
The trip took the party through a
region that contains much promise.
About seven miles south of Lava
buttc, one emerges from the forest
of fine western white pine through
which the road southward from
Betid passes and reaches the coun
try known as The Meadows. Here
for many miles along and between
Little river and the Deschutes are
many acres of land covered with a
luxuriant growth of native grass.
Horn these fields many tons of hay
arc cut every year for winter fced-iuc.
One of the first ranches is that of
C. B. Allen, where large fields of
rye and many acres of meadow land
assure an nbundaut hay harvest for
the winter. Mr. Allen's residence
is only a few steps from the banks of
Little river. Only .1 short distance
front his door-step there bubbles
forth a spring of clear, pure water
that furnishes an excellent supply
for domestic purposes.
Adjoining Mr. Allen's place is
the W. P. Vandevcrt homestead,
where in addition to the old home
stead Mr. Vandevcrt and his broth
ers, Kicharu aim waiter, own many
acres lying for five miles along the
river. Mr. Vandevcrt has a field of
rye that stands about seven feet
high, which is filling out nicely
with grain. It is estimated to cut
a ton and a hall of hay to the acre.
Volunteer rye also is doing well.
The many acres of meadow, with
the river flowing through, makes n
pretty and prosjHirous looking pic
ture. Mr. Vnndevert nlso has n fine,
never-failing spring with water so
cold that it makes your teeth ache
to drink it.
A short distance farther south
one passes the fine stock ranches of
S. S. Stearns, John Atkinson and
Lee Caldwell. Mr. Stearns had
quite a herd of young cattle glaz
ing in a near-by pasture which were
k and fr.t and iu excellent con
Thus one rnttcli alter another is
passed until Roslaud is reached,
where Jobe Bogue and sons own
many hundred acres of valuable
meadow and timber laud. Some
day in the not far-distant future, an
irrigation project will be launched
in the Roslaud country that will re
claim nearly 40,000 acres of valu
able land. This project is now in
the preliminary stages. The land
to be reclaimed is yery fertile, free
from rock, and lies in large level
trncts. It only needs water to make
it a great hay and lorage crop pro
ducer, The land through this region,
with the exception of the meadows
and grain fields, is covered with a
heavy growth of jack pine, with
fine, large western white pine in
certain localities. While this jack
pine is considered worthless as lum
ber timber, it is said to make good
railroad ties and n recent test
showed that an excellent grade of
paper pulp can be made from it.
Timber from which pulp can be
made is getting very scarce and
more valuable from year to year.
Thus nnothcr menus of revenue
will some day be added to this laud,
About 15 miles west of The
Meadows lies anoth or fine tract of
meadow land knovn as Craiu
Prairie, which, tfnde r the new law
allowing homestead! I in forest re
serves, will undoubtedly soon be
occupied by horncifceaders. It is
said that 100 claims or more can be
located on Crain Prairie.
What this vast region needs is
railroad transportation and the
above mentioned irrigation project
carried to completion. With the
railroads will come sawmills and
settlers, when this, region will be
converted into a great dairy nnd
stock-raising country. The rail
roads will come in' the near future.
The next fewyenrs will sec a won
derful development in this favored,
bio paw at Redmond.
Preparation Is rising Made for Fine
Exhibition in September.
Work in preparation for the Jicd-,
mond fair to be held September 20-
22 is going on merrily. The var
ious committees are hard at work,:
and the premium lists are expected ;
to be out in a few days. A high
class of exhibits will be 011 hand

is being provided for visitors.

Pivc hundred dollars has been

here by subscription for additional
premiums nnd purses. A cordial
invitation is extended to the whole
of Crook county and the rest of the
state to meet with us and have a

many People Anxious to File on Craln
Prairie's Fertile Acres.
This week has seen much activity
iu local circles regarding the filing
of homestead entries on lands in
Crain Prairie. This fine tract of
meadow laud lying in the Cascade
Range Forest Reserve about 35
miles south and west of Bend, is
about oqual to a township in area
nnd has room for many prosperous
homes. Under the recent act of
congress, it is possible that this
land will be thrown open to entry,
and many local people have taken
the necessary steps to have their
W. P. Vandevcrt, one of the ex
tensive stockmen in that region,
who has cut hay from the prairie
for several years, was one of the
first ones to get busy. The prairie
has been surveyed, Mr. Vandevcrt
is acquainted with the locations,
and during the last week he has
been working to locate homestead
ers on the land, getting them to
send their applications to the forester
at Washington. It is said that he
has picked the cream of the lot.
Before Mr. Vnndevert had shown
his hand iu the game another party
of Bend men had started for the
prairie to acquaint themselves with
the land, preparatory to filing their
applications. It is thus probable
that there will be several duplicate
applications lor the same laud.
Homesteads on Craiu Prairie are
especially desirable for several rea
sons. There is au abundant supply
of water, three rivers flowing
through it. It lies close to the
mountains iu which stock can be
grazed during the summer. It pro
duces n heavy growth of native
grass that cuts about a ton of hay
to the acie. This selling at from
$5 to $10 n ton will iu itself furnish
a neat little income to the home
steaders until they get their homes
established. A railroad will un
doubtedly soon cross the prairie,
and with its numerous advantages
it will some day be a wealthy and

As the question of irrigation is
studied more thoroughly, the im
portant part it will bear to the lifo
and development of the arid sec
tions of the West is more clearly
seen. Under the impetus given to
irrigation projects by the Carey act
and by the reclamation work befng
done by the government, people are
beginning to comprehend more fully
the vast Importance of irrigation.
And as the question is studied and
surveys made, it b clearly seen in
all these projects that the feature of
predominating importance is an ade
quate supply of water. In thi3
respect, the JJcscnutcs valley is
wonderfully blessed. The Deschutes
river, with its never failing source
in the snow-capped mountains of
the Cascade range, furnishes a.
volume of water that will irrigate
many thousand acres of thirsty
desert, and as present projectn ex
pand and new ones are developed
up and down the valley, with their
added demands on the flow of the
river, a sure aud adequate supply
of water is assured as there arc
great natural reservoirs iu the lakes
at the head of the Deschutes that
need only a little work by man to
make them capable of impounding
millions of cubic feet of water, the
excess flow of the river at times of
the year when it is not needed.
A crew of government engineers
made a survey through this region
in 1903 and in a bulletin on the
"Geology and Water Resources of
Central Oregon" the engineer in
charge discusses the possibilities of
storage reservoirs at the sources of
the Deschutes. Dam lake, one of
the lakes to be considered, was not
visited by this crew although the
engineer reported from data on
hand that it could probably be made
into a reservoir. Regarding the
possibilities of Odell and Crescent
lakes iu this regard, the report says:
This charming sheet of clear, cold wat
er, surrouniled bv boltl, forest-covered
mountains, is located on the east side of
the Cascade mountains in proximity to
their crest, and receives the water from
the snow fields on Diamond Teak, tho
height of which is 8,807 feet. On the
side of that fine, bold mountain aud iu
view from the east bide of Odell lake
there is a miniature glacier situated just
above the upper limit of tree growth,
which may be considered as a much
wasted remnant of an extensive ice
stream that formerly flowed eastward
from the same elevated region and occu
pied the valley in which the present lake
occurs. The former glacier bad several
tributaries iu iu upper portion, and also
received contributions from snow fieltla
that covered the less imposing volcanic
mountain to the northeast of Odell lake.
The ice that flowed through the pre
viously stream-eroded valley broadened
ltd valley, rounded and smoothed the
ledgea and hills of resistant rock on its
borders, and on melting left conspicuous
and well-defined lateral moraines on its
sides and a senee of curved, concentric,
terminal moraines about its southern
end. The lateral moraines on the sidott
of the valley slope perceptibly iu the di
rection of ice movement. The terminal
moraines which sweep across the south
ern end of the basin iu a series of open
loops are steep-sided ridges composed of
bowlders ami much volcuuic lapilli ami
pumice. The innermost of the series
rises precipitously from the south end of
the lake, and forms the dam which re
tains its waters. The moraine is crossed
by the stream flowing from the lake,
which has excavated a narrow, (lop
sided gorge across it. This gorge fur
nishes a favorable site for dam, hy
means of which the level of the lake
could be raised so as to retaiu all of its
The width of this stream at the local
ity where the dam would be built was 57
feet on September 3, 1903, its average
depth nine-tenths of a foot, and its max
imum velocity, as determined by mean
of float, seventy-five oue-huudredths foot
per second, This amouut, however, is
probably in excess of the actual volume,
as the stream is much obstructed by
stones and bowlders, and the value given
to the measure of the velocity conse-
