Rattlesnake Killed Near Madras.
J. W. Robinson killed n large
rattlesnake about six utiles south
of this place last Sunday afternoon.
When coming from Culver he came
upon two young ladies who were
making heroic efforts to kill the
rattler, which had taken refuge
under a sagebush, from which van
tage point he was sounding a ter
rible warning with his rattle. Mr.
Robisou dispatched him with a
rock and removed the rattle, which
contained nine rattles nud a button.
The snake was killed near the ipot
where Jerry Cramer killed one n
few weeks ago, and it had the
same uumbcr of rattles. Pioneer.

TO TRY NBW SYSTEM
Campbell Method Will Be
SUB-SOIL PACKER IS ORDERED
Pilot Hutto Development Co. Will ex
periment In Crop growing; Near
Bend without Irrigation.
The far-famed "Campbell sys
tem" of dry fanning, a system that
is being much talked of at present,
will be given a trial in the Bend
country next season by the Pilot
Uutte Development Co, This sys
tem will k used in connection with
irrigation and probably a piece of
new ground will be tilled according
to Campbell's plans and uo water
put upon it whatever except that
coming by rainfall. A subsoil pack
er has been ordered, a machine in
vented by Mr. Camnbcll, and a thor
ough test will be given the system
in this vicinity. If this method of
dry farming produces the marvelous
results that it has in other semi-arid
countries, its introduction into the
Deschutes valley will bring thou
sands of dollars of profit to the farm
ers and will convert many thousand
acres of land that cannot be reached
by irrigation into fertile grain fields.
This it has done in oth:r states.
Hricflv described the Campbell
system consists in the following,
two principles of nature being in
volved the movement of moisture
111 the soil bv capillarity and its es
cape into the air by evaporation.
The Campbell system aims to pre
pare the soil to admit all the meagre
rainfall that is precipitated and then
to retain it in the soil.
First, there must be deep plowing
to create n reservoir for the moisture
nnd to nrcnarc the soil so that it
will allow the rain to soak in read-
ilv. Then the subsurface soil must
be firmly packed and the grain
drilled in a trifle beneath the sur
face of the packed subsoil. Over
this packed subsoil tlicre must oe
about three inches of dust and this
fliiut ninlrli must be kent in that
condition during the growing sea
son. The subsurface soil must be
packed because moisture cnunol rise
rcndilv throiiL-li a loose soil, but by
capillarity rises easily through a
firm, well packed soil, tints brtug
lug the moisture up to the roots of
the grain. As has been stated,
moisture cannot rise through a loose
soil, so that the dust mulch checks
the upward movement of moisture,
keeps it from the surface of the
ground and away from the dry air
and hot sun. Thus by the Camp
bell method the moisture is allowed
to rise to the plant roots but is kept
from escaping into the air by evap
oration. Land in Colorado, Nebraska and
other dry regious that was formerly
the home of cacti and sagebrush,
under the Campbell system is pro
ducing 23 tons of sugar beets to the
acre and 54 bushels of wheat par
acre without irrigation. Waving
grain fields and fruitful orchards
are now growing on the arid desert.
A. M. Drake of the P. B. D. Co..
who has studied very carefully into
the Cnninbell svstem. holds the
opinion that because of the loose
ness of the soil in this vicinity, it
may take three or four years to get
the subsoil well pacneu aim m a
nroner condition to retain the mois
ture, before which time the system
could not have a fair trial. He ex
pects, however, to see very favor
able and noticable results from the
first venr's cultivation. v
The company's experiments with
this method will be watched with
much interest by farmers hereabout.
Lots ot Water at Madras.
A larger and better flow of water
was struck iti the Ishath well last
week, than has been encountered
in it heretofore at any time, and on
Monday morning work could not
be resumed in the well for the rea
son that it wan impossible to pump
it dry. This is the largest well in
the "country, being fully 12 feet
across tiie lottora and about 35 feet
deep' Mr- Ishatu has lx:cn sinking
his well deeper just as rapidly as he
could, in order that he might
secure nn inexhaustible supply of
water for the. patrons of his well,
and the latest flow of water looks
more encouraging than any he has
struck beforp this. Madras Pioneer

A PAINFUL ACCIDENT.
Head of Ax Flies from Handle and
Badly Wounds Percy Walzer.
Last Saturday while Percy Wal
zer was working with a crew of
surveyors running laterals in the
vicinity of the Johnston ranch, he
met with an accident that will lay
him up for several weeks. One of
the men was chopping with an ax
not far from Percy, the head flew
ofT and struck Percy on the inside
of the right leg a few inches above
the ankle. The- blade struck the
flesh and in its downward course
cut a deep gash in the leg, cut into
the ankle joint, and severed the
ligaments and tendons of the ankle
As soon as possible a team was
gotten ready aud the wounded man
brought to town. News of the
accident had been telephoned to
Dr. Coc aud lie and Dr. Merrill
were waiting at the Pilot Butte
Inn, with evcything in readiness,
when the wounded man arrived.
Au enaesthctic was admfnstcred
and the wound dressed. The
wound has caused much pain since
then, but the patient is doing as
well as could be expected.
It was one of those unfortunate
accidents against which it is hard
to guard and for which no one is to

NELSON VISITS CROOK
Oregon Trunk Line Pro
moter Examines Route.
STUDIES FREIGHT STATISTICS
W. P. Nelson and A. P. Cole Are (lath
ering Information about Croojf
County's Volume of Business.
W. F. Nelson, the man who is
promoting the Oregon Trunk Line
up the Deschutes river from its
mouth, and A. P. Cole, a promi
nent railroad engineer who until
recently has been connected with
the Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul
railroad, are spending' considerable
time during the past two weeks in
Central Oregon going over possible
routes of the Trunk Line south of
Messrs. Nelson and Cole were in
Madras several days during the first
of last week. They arrived there
on Sunday afternoon, having driven
over much of the territory from
which the Nelson road expects to
draw its tonnage, and on Tuesday
they left for the country south, ex
pecting to come to Bend. Mr.
Nelson expressed himself as well
pleased with the country over which
he had passed, which shows up
well in comparison with other
wheat sections which felt the effect
of the hot winds of last month.
Tuesday these gentlemen went
to Princvillc where several days
will be spent looking up the ton
nage that would probably be
handled by a railroad building into
Mr. Nelson occupies a unique,
position among the railroad build
ers who have their eye on the Ccu
tral Oregon country, in that while
he has made few promises, he is
the only one of them who has so
far done any actual construction
work. He has two crews now at
work on his line up the river, one
at the Moody ranch at the mouth
of the Deschutes aud another at
the Free Bridge nine miles higher
up. Short on promises and long
on actual performance, seems to be
his dominating characteristic.
When in Mndras, Mr. Nelson was
very reticient as to their plans, and
the date upon which they expected
to have the Oregon Trunk Line
built into Madras. "If we don't
make any promises," he said,
"there won't be any to break." He
stated, however, that labor was
hard to get now. but that inside of
sixty days he thought plenty of
men would be available, and that
by that time he expected to greatly
increase the working force. Upon
one point he was quite emphatic,
and that is that the Otegon Trunk
Line will be built up the Deschutes
to Madras, and that work will
continue steadily to that end.
Mr. Nelson and Mr. Cole spent
Monday out on the line between
Madras and the mouth of Willow
Creek gorge, returning in tho after
noon and spending some time look
ing over the territory immediately
surrounding that place.
Maps for Oregon Eastern Filed,
More evidence that Harriman is
in earnest in his intention to build
a road across Central Oregon was
furnished last week when Harri
man men filed maps at Burns show-
ing definite locations of the first
section of the Oregon Eastern road,
running from Ontario west. A dis
patch from Burns says:
"Burns, Or., Aug. 17 Attorney W.
A. Robbln, of W. CoUoii'b ouVe air
Portland t representing the Hnrthuam
lines, arrived in Duma today and at Witt
proceeded to file maps of definite loca
tion for a Harriman railroad to be built
through Central Oregon. He refused to
be interviewed, but it was learned, by
referring to the maps, that surveys are
now complete from Ontario to a point on
Crane Creek, near the east end of Mal
heur Lake, but from that place the
route of the proposed line has not yet
been decided upon,"
