What about that exhibit of pro
ducts grown in the Bend countr ?
Everyone concedes that it would bt
a fine thing: thut it would be a
great object lesson for stranger.
passing through the town, and thai
its advertising value would be of no
mean importance. Yet, no one
yeems to take interest enough in ii
to do a little work and collect those
things necessary for such an exhibit.
What is the matter with Bend's
Laidlaw has gathered a large and
excellent exhibit of grains, grasses,
etc. and will have tbem on display
at the Rcdmoud fair. Prineville
also is reported to have a fine ex
hibit and news comes that Red
mond has one of the finest collec
tions of grains, grasses and vege
tables ever collected. Again the
Question presents itself, What is
the matter with Bend's "push
There are several things that
would make an exhibit from Bend
different from those of our neigh
bors, and to the extent that they
were different they would possess a
peculiar interest in themselves.
The exhibits, from neighboring
owns will consist largely of farm
products. Such exhibits are of
prime importance and in this stage
pf the country's development should
receive the greatest attention. But
while this is good, there arc also
other natural resources that should
le oa exhibition at the Redmond
fair, thus showing to the visitors
not only the agricultural but all re
sources of this portion of the upper
Deschutes valley. In these other
features Bend could lead. Por in
stance, there should be on exhibi
tion samples of timber in the rough
and manufactured product. The
upper Deschutes is becoming fa
mous as a sportsman's paradise.
Therefore, there should be a goodly
exhibit of furs, antlers, etc., etc. to
represent the game features of the
country. In fact, if this matter was
given the attention that it deserves
a most gratifying exhibit could be
collected. Bend may net have as
many acres under cultivation in
this immediate vicinity as does its
neighbors, but it can supplement
its agricultural exhibit with other
natural products of the country and
in doing so make a display of pecu
Jiar value and interest.
Again we ask, What is the matter
with Beud's "push club?"
Tim co-operation of the farmers
Jiereabouts iu making a suitable ex
Itibit of grains, etc. from this vicin
ity is urgently requested. They
are asked to save samples of their
crops and bring them to towu,
Anything that helps to advertiso a
country aud bring settlors into it,

play of the the Bend country's pro
ducts will ultimately be to their

AN EFFECTIVE POISON.
Chipmunks and Sage Rats Cannot
Sunlve This Dose.
C. A. Chapman gave The Bulle'
tiu a recipe for a poison that has
proved very effective iu killing
snge rats iu Northern Oregon and
Washington. Mr. Chapman med
it quite extensively on his ranch
near Pendleton, as did a large
ninionty of ranchers thereabouts
It is a cheap preparation and is
easily prepared, und is as follows:
Take one ounce of strychnine to
eight gallons of wheat, or any
amount in the same proportion.
First dissolve the strychnine in
enough boiling water to just
thoroughly dampen the wheat.
Don't use too much water. Then
Iry the wheat with an application
of common granulated sugar. He
ure and have the wheat well dried
by the sugar. While drying, it is
beat to spread out the wheat or it
will drv in a hard mass. As the
lieeolved sugar drys it forms a
crystal around each kernel, making
a very toothsome bait for the chip
munk's. This can be scattered
around the field in various ways.
scattering a teaspoonful every other
step, or dropping it in a furrow
plowed around the field. Another
good way is to throw a few kernels
into the holes under rocks and
trees where chipmunks make their
nests. One kernel to a squirrel
As soon as the chipmunks ap
pear in the early spring this poison
should be used, before the young
ones are born.
Mr. Chapman says this poison is
also very effective against pocket
gophers. To dispone ot them dig
down in the ground to the cross
holes and then flirt about one-half
teaspoonful of the poisoned grain
five or six inches into the cross
holes. Don't drop it at the en
trance to this crossway but flirt it
back a few inches Then be care
ful to cover the boh; again, as the
gopher will be blinded by the light
if the hole is left uncovered and it
will fail to find the grain.
As the country is cultivated
more extensively each year, these
pocket gophers will bather more
or less. This poison has done the
necessary work in other sections j
and should be (riven a trial here. I

Problems That Confront The Irrigator.
DKVICHS l'OR TURNINO WATKR
' 1'ROM IMTCJUIS.
The crudest way to turn water
from a ditch is to make n cut in the
side with n spade and throw the
dirt into the ditch to make a dam.
Some simple homc-tundc devices
wilt obviate the manifest disadvan
tages of this method. Three will
be described and others will sug
gest themselves, to the ingenious ir
rigator. The cloth dam is very widely
used. It consists of a rectangular
piece of stout, closely-woven cloth
or canvas, one side of which is
rolled around aud nailed to a cross
piece of wood of length and strength
according to the sue of the ditch
aud the amount of water to be
dammed. Sometimes it is made
with a hem across one side deep
enough to allow the crosspiece to
be thrust through the hem. Iu
using the dam, place the stick
across the top of the dry ditch
where it is desired to throw the
water out: draw the lower edge of
the cloth up the bottom pf the ditch
ami place a little dirt on the cor
nets. The canvas must always be
large cnoueh to have several inches
lap against the sides of the ditch;
otherwise it will not retain all the
water. Should the ditch have a
steep grade it will be necessary to
let the canvas fill up gradually, as
a sudden rush of water would force
the cloth from its position. When
the dam is in position it will be nec
essary to cut the bank of the ditch
at the places where the water is
wanted Two cloth dams will be
needed in order to place one in po
sition while the other throws the
water out above, it Iwitic difficult
to lay the canvas under a full head
ot water. The water will press the
canvas against the sides aud bottom
of the ditch, so that none can es
cape. To remove the cloth, take
hold of one end of the stick and
pull slowly upstream.
A metal dam or "tappoon" is on
some accounts preferable to the
cloth, and it, too, is readily made.
HOW THE BULLETIN HELPS.
Letters Showing How This Paper Aids

Below we copy in full a few of
the letters received, by this paper
from week to week, asking for in

Thus inquiries arc not an occasion
al occurrence but The Bulletin is in
receipt of them practically every
week Those given below are but
a few of tie many received. They
help to show the widespread in

more to the point, illustrate the
value of a newspaper to a new
and developing country. The let

Heavy sheet iron is cut into semi

is securely fastened between two
narrow strips of wood by carriage

wood, like a piece of scantling.
These metal dams arc made in dif
ferent sizes according to the ditch
iu which they are to lc used, their
diameter being a little more than
the width of the ditch, as the edges
must be pushed down n little way
into the earth of the ditch banks
and bottom. They arc placed in
the ditch nt or near the point where
it is desired to turn out the water.
These metal dams are also used in
the openings in the banks of ditches
cither to close them when checks
arc full, or to partly close them and
still permit part of the stream to cu
ter the check to balance the soak
ing away. They are made with
sliding gates to be used when part
of the stream is to be allowed to
pass through for any purpose.
Portable wooden dams arc also
used aud are of similar form to the
metal dams. They serve a good
purpose, but are more cumbersome,
more likely to give out, aud mote
difficult to make water-tight except
with some shoveling. Wooden
dams are, however, of much use in
quite small ditches and as gates for

six or more inches wide and 14 in

ed so as to be readily driven intb
soft ground. Above arc two holes
about an inch in diameter, one or
both to be used according to the
flow desired. The cut is made iu
the ditch aud the board driven well
toward the inside of the ditch to
avoid a niche to catch sediment. If
a large flow is desired the board is
pulled out and afterwards replaced
when it is desired to stop or reduce
the flow. This device works very
well in small ditches
