linn Sport with the Crowd That Camo
A K00(l s'or)' 's told on the boys
who went to charivari Mr. and Mrs.
Lou Reed on the night of their
wedding last week at Redmond. A
big crowd of youngsters and some
who were not so young gathered
before the home of Mr. and Mrs.
Vic O'Connor, where the ceremony
had been performed, and proceeded
with the usual noise and racket.
What was the surprise and chacrin
of the crowd to suddenly notice
that the groom had quietly slipped
in with the "boys" and was pound
iug a tin pan with as much gusto
nnd cvIdtMit enioviliellt as OIIVOIIC.
This was evidently the time when
the bridegroom turned the tables
and the joke was on the other fel
lows. Finds Lone Lost Watch.
Last Prlday Adam Kotzman,
while walking over hind in the vi
cinity of his much,, found a silver
watch lying fact ddwuwards and
partially embedded in the soil.
The crystal was missing nnd was
found, unbroken, about 15 or 30
feet from the watch. As the watch
was picked up it started to tick and
upon being wouud rau a short time
but finally stopped. The watch
had been extwed so long to the
sun aud rata that the silver ou the
back had taken ou a blue tinge us
also had the crystal. Mr, Kotz
mau is of the opinion that it has
been lying where lie found it for
four or five years, and that it fell
from the pocket of some one who
was riding at a swift gait, judging
from the manner in which the crys
tal popped off when the watch fell.
Attempted Murder at Prineville.
Bert Gilbert, a candy maker at
Prineville, got crazy druuk last
Wednesday from drinking absinthe,
aud in his delirium attempted to
shoot his wife. In the tussle that
ensued, she was able to defend her
self until others arrived on the
scene, called there by her cries for
Gilbert whs arrested and put in
the lock-up, wheteupon he attempt-
I'd to free himself bv bUruiue the
jail. When the fire was discovered,
Gilbert was louuu in an unconscious
coudition nearly suffocated by the
smoke. Dr. Roscnburg worked
over him for a long time aud finally
brought him back to consciousness.
He was taken to the house where
he had been boarding. That night
he packed his few belongings in a
light wagon that he owned, hitched
up his one horse, and quietly slip
ped out out of town. It is sup
posed he started for Klamath Falls.

BEND'S NEW SCHOOL
The Joy of the Scholars
THE PRIDE OP THE DISTRICT
School Opened Last Monday In the
New Building with a (lood
Bend's fine new $6,500 school
house was owned to use last Mon
day morning at the beginning of
school, and is now daily filled with
11 crowd of scholars who are proud
and happy in their new building.
And well they may be. It is a
building that every citizen of the
district can fell just pride in, and in
which they should take great in
terest. Situated on a high, com
manding site, it has a fine view of
mountains, river and buttes, and is
Msily iu by strangers coming into
town from the north and east.
As you enter the building, you
step into a wide, spacious lobby,
opening from winch arc three
school rooms and cloak rooms on
the first floor. To your left is the
room of the nrimary tirades. Here

room faces the south, with south
and cast windows. Its dimensions
arc 24 x 32 feet. A few steps
farther down the lobby and on the
opposite side, is the room of the in
termediate grado, with Miss Mar
ion Wicst teacher. This room is
also a fine large one, with windows
to the west and north, dimensions
2.1x34 feet The principal's room,
Miss Ruth Reid's, is at the end of
the lobby, with windows to the cast
and north. Its dimensions are also
24 x 32 feet. The rooms are
equipped with late-style single scats
aud have liberal blackboard space.
Adioituntr these three rooms with
a door opening from the lobby and
also one opening into 111c sciiooi
room, arc three large cloak rooms,
one for each school room In each
of these is a modern washstand,
which will be connected with city
water in a few days.
Aside from the ventilation that
can be obtained through the win
dows, each room has a patent ven

SETTLERS TAKE ACTION.
Rcr.chers on Columbia Southern Co.'s
Segregation Employ Engineers.
("in nceotmt of the unsatisfactory
coudition of affairs existing in the
management of the Columbia
Southern Irrigation Company, with
headquarters at Laiaiaw, tne set
tlers on this company's segregation
have employed a competent engi
neer to make a thorough survey of
the company's canals aud ditches,
aud also to report on the, cost and
advisability of building a reservoir
to store the flood waters and winter
discharge of Ttimalo creek, If 9
favorahle reoort is made it is verv
probable that a v co-operative associ
ation yill be, organized, by hc set
tlers, who will purchase the Colum
bia Southern Co.'.s works. A. L.
Aldrcdgc is the engineer employed.
It is reported that at a gap in the
canyon at the head of Tutnalo
creek there is what is supposed to
be an old liikc bed. It k said that
this could be easily dammed and
converted into a large reservoir,
at very little expenssc. The crew
under Knginocr Aldrcdgc left
Thursday for this pitc to make a
survey and report. If a reservoir
is finally built, an ample supply of
water for the segregation will be
It is also believed that n much
better system of ditches can be con
structed by putting in hcadgatcs at
a point near where the Bcnd-Tuma-
lo road crosses the Tutnalo creek.
Under the present arrangement
with hcadgatps on the creek about
15 miles above Laidlaw, the fall is
altogether too great for good service.
It is believed this can be greatly im
proved by tapping the creek lower
down. The Columbia Southern
Co.'s segregation lies on the west
side of the Deschutes, with head
quarters at Laidlaw and obtains
water for irrigation from Tumalu
creek. This company sr.ould not
be confounded with the Deschutes
Irrigation and Power Company,
which operates ou the cast side of
the Deschutes and appropriates its
water from Deschutes river.
The engineers who will make
these surveys arc working under
orders from State Euginccr Lewis,
but the expense connected with this
work will be paid by the settlers.

Irving Reed A waits the Work, of the
Specialist to Restore Ills Sight.
Irving Rccd-aud his sister, Miss
Violette, are now in Portland where
Irving has gone to undergo an op
cratiou with the hope of restoring
his eye-sight. The specialist is
very confident that this can be
done. There has a filmy growth
covered the eyeball and shuts out
the light from the nerve somewhat
as a window curtain shuts the light
from a room. This growth will
have to be raised from the eyeball
aud clipped, allowing the light to
enter again through the pupil of
It can readily be seen how deli
cate an operation this will be.
In the meantime, however, Bend
friends arc hoping that the opera
tion will prove successful and that
the unfortunate results ot the ex
plosion last December, whereby
Irving lost his sight, will be at least

MANY FINE SAMPLES
Laidlaw Has an Excellent
Exhibit of Grains.
PROOP OP A FERTILE LAND
That Upper Deschutes Valley Soil Is
Very Productive Is Amply Proved
by Tills Year's Crops.
A Bulletin representative was in
Laidlaw the first of the week and
while there saw an exhibit of grain,
grasses and vegetables that had
been grown in that vicinity this
year, an exhibit that adds much
proof to the enthusiastic statements
of settlers in this region that the
upper Deschutes valley is one of
the most fertile spots in the West.
For the benefit of The Bulletin's
.many readers living at distant
ioiiiu wnu arc imcrcsica in mis
country but who are not acquaint
ed with local geography, we will
say that Laidlaw is situated on the
west bank of the Deschutes river
about eight miles north of Bend.
The samples in many instances were
grown on land lying between Laid
law, Tumalo and Bend, und were
raised on land that has been culti
vated only a year or two. No re
gion can make a better showing
than has the upper Deschutes val
ley during the present season, and
such exhibits as the one at Laidlaw
give ample evidence of the truth of
this statement. Following is a brief
description of the samples of grain.
All this -grain produced heavy
yields, the stalks being topped with
large heads tilled with fine, plump
kernels of grain. The list follows;
J. N. B. Gcrking Big Club
wheat, 56 inches tall; Blue Stem
wheat, 52 inches; Red Chaff wheat,
38 inches; winter oats, 5 feet tall
with head clusters 20 inches long;
alfalfat 42 inches high.
R. M. Siry Oats, 5 feet; rye, 8
G. W. Wimer & Sons Alfalfa.
B. S. Cook Red clover, 32 in
ches. G. W. Moore Velvet Chaff
wheat, heads six inches long.

high with heads oj4 inches long.
J. M. Patten Barley, 4 feet
tall on dry laud without irrigation.
W. N- Ray Beardless barley, 4

tall. Mrs. Parks has many fine,
W. W. Long Corn, 8 feet tall;
tame Lamb's Quarter, 8 feet tall
with roots; good sized watermelons,
and large, fine Blue Victor potatoes.
Many of the best exhibits were
at Boise, Idaho, on exhibition at
the National Irrigation Congress.
Those who were in attendance at
this congress report that this exhib
it was one of the very best there.
IT IS EAS.V TO KILL BEARS.
Sportsmen Now Hunt Them with
Very Small Firearms.
A week or 10 days ago two
young ranchers ou Agency Plains
shot and killed a 300 pouud bear
with only a 23-calibre rifle, and
now comes the story of a nervy
man over on the Metolius who
killed a bear and her cub the, other
day with a big six-shooter. It
seems that it is getting to be no
trick at all to kill big game.
A. J. Harter, whose ranch is on
the Metolius near Black Butte, was
the nervy man. His dog recently
treed an old bear and her cub,
whereupon he shot aud killed
them with his six-shooter. What's
the use of lugging around a heavy
30-30, when an ordinary revolver
will do the work..
