liflstcrn Will lie Hxtcndt-d.
Negotiations are about closed for
the purchase of the Corvallis &
HuHteru raihvuy by the Christian
Co-operative Federation. When the
ptirclinftc is fmnlly completed, defi
nite announcement will soon be
made that the Corvnllis & Hastcrn
will begin actual construction early
next spring from the present ter
minus of the rond at Idnhim across
the stute east to the Snake river.
The above is the latest railroad
story in a nutshell, as told to The
Hullelin this week by a business
man from Portland, who, lor good
rcaftous, deaircd that his name
should not tie mentioned.
This man has money invested in
the Christian Co-operative Federa
tion, and he claims to have inside
information as to the federation's
plans due to his financial connec
tions with the company. He said
it was very probable that the deal
would be closed within the next
week that negotiations had
reached such a stage that they
might be closed any day. He also
stated that there was no doubt,
whatever, but that the extension
would be commenced next spring if
the deal was finally consummated.
It will be remembered that the
Christian Co-operative Federation
is a company organized to build and
operate railroads, sawmills and vari
ous manufacturing concerns, estab
lish towns, develop farms, etc. The
territory in which the federation
will operate will be the Willamette
valley and Central and Eastern Or
cgon along the line of this proposed
railroad extension. It is claimed
that the plans under which it will
operate will tend to solve some of
the diflkultus now existing between
capital and labor. This gentleman
stated that the federation was well
capitalized and had plenty of funds.
The Corvallis & Hastern is one
of the roads that Bend people arc
banking on to tap this region. In
fact, many insist that it will be the
first road into Central Oregon. Its
siuvejs across the state arc made
ami run through Iknd. The pres
ent terminus of the road, at Idahua,
is but 60 miles west of llend.
A Visit from a Pioneer.
Mr. and Mrs. II. Taylor Hill of
Portland are in Peud this week to
make final proofs on timber claims.
Mr. Hill formerly owned a large
htock ranch near Prineville and
was one ol the pioneer settlers 01"
this region. He now owns a farm
near Portland and also hus a busi
ness iu Hast Portland, dividing his
time between the two. He and his
wife had driven to Pend, bringing
with them a supply of apples from
their Portland farm with which
they were presenting their friends.
They stated that bushels of them
were going to waste under the trees.
Speaking of the change of climate
iu Central Oregon, Mr. Hill said
that the climate here was getting
much warmer; that a lew years ago
he had often traveled from Prine
ville to The Dalles through a foot
of snow with the ground frozen
solid. Now, during the same time
of the year, you would have to
travel through mild and rain. This
strengthens the contention made by
many that as this country is settled
and developed the climate will be
come much warmer.

Looking for Underground Water.
An investigation of the under
ground water conditions iu south
ern Oregon is being made by the
hydrographic branch of the United
States Geological Survey, and a
field party is now engaged in the
work in central Lake county. A
study will be made of the geologic
structure of the basalt that occurs
in that part of the state in order to
determine whether there are any
artesian basins from which deep
seated waters may be drawn, and
an examination will also be made
of thesurface deposits in the deserts
and valleys to ascertain whether
underground water is available at
such a depth as will make it profit
able to pump water for domestic
purposes, for the stock, or for irri
gation. The greater portion of this region
is now utilized as a stock range,
but there are many valleys in which
hay is raised or dry farming is
practiced, and iu these areas agri
cultural conditions will be much
improved if u supply of under
ground water can be procured lor
the purpose of irrigation.
As soon as practicable, after the
completion of the field work a re
port will be issued that should be
of great value to agriculturists and
water users in this region. This
report, which will be distributed
free will describe the conditions
governing the occurrence of under
ground water and will show the
areas in which such water may be

There were 140 timber laud filings
in the Lakeview land district dur

land officials have been crowded
with work, and besides a large
amount of official business the office
has been overrun with inquiries
about laud in this district. Thou
sands of people write to the land
office for information, thinking, no
doubt, that they are the only ones
Who have written, aud in many

Allll Starts Again.
The flowering mill at Madras has
resumed operations after being idle
for several months. About a year
ago, due to some friction between
the stockholders, the Madras Mill
ing Si Mercantile Company was
turned over to the Merchants' Pro
tective Association for the benefit
of the creditors. The store and
stock of merchandise owned by the
company were sold but the mill
was retained aud after several
months delay has again started the
grinding of flottr. The mill has a
capacity of 50. barrels a day.

DOUBLES THE YIELD
'Campbell System " Wins
over Old Methods.

Madras Man Tries Modern Ways of
Dry Farming with Very Profita
ble ResultsUsed Packer.
Jo Marnach, one of the progres
sive farmers of the Madras country,
had the banner crop of grain in his
locality this season, and he secured
it as a result of the application of
one of the important principles of
the "dry farming" methods, that of
the sub-surface packing which
packs the ground underneath aud
leaves it loose on top. OfT of 40
acres of his ranch four miles south
west of Madras, he secured this
ear 1,600 bushels of barley, an av
erage of 40 bushels to the acre. The
soil on his ranch is no better than
that on dozens of other places in
that locality, and the big yield must
be attributed to the methods of
On 40 acres of his land Mr Mar
nach followed the plow with a sub
surface packer, while on 80 acres
adjoining he did not do so. On the
40 acres packed he secured a crop
of 40 bushels to the acre, while on
the adjoining land, farmed under
the old methods, he secured less
than half as much. Consequently
the new method, or "Campbell sys
tem," netted Mr. Marnach a neat
profit. Barley at Madras is worth
Si. 00 per bushel. On the land
tanned under the old method heob
taincd less than half as much as by
the new method, but figuring it at
half the yield of the Campbell
method, there is a gain of Sco bush
els over the old system. Deducting
the cost of the extra work due to
the new method, say $0, there is a
profit of $750 on 40 acres in favor
of the "Campbell method" not a
Last year a new farming imple
ment was left in Mr. Marnachs
hands by an implement house for
trial. It was one of the various
kinds of sub-surface packers which,
have come into use with the Camp
bell, or dry farming methods of cul
tivation. It is a machine which
packs the soil underneath to a depth
of six or seven inches. This thor
oughly packs the sub-soi), forming
a good storage reservoir for the
moisture and at the same time in
creasing the capillary attraction so
that the moisture may later be sup
plied to the roots pf the growing
plants from below, as needed. The
ton of the ground is left loose, soon
dries and forms a dust mulch on
top, which helps to retain the mois
ture in the ground by preventing
1 he Campbell method of cultiva
tion is bound to be of great benefit
to the arid sections of Oregon. At
first thought the man who has wat
er with which to irrigate feels that
this method is of no use to him, but
wheti the subsoil is well packed and
a dust mulch is kept on the surface
it requires much less water to pro
duce crops thau it does where this
method is not used. Thus, with
the duty of water lessened, much
more land can be irrigated with the
same amount of water.
In the upper Deschutes valley -and
even iu the llend country
where there are great irrigation
works there aro hundreds of acrcs
that cau never be watered, due to
the typography of the laud. Under
the Campbell method this land will
some day be made very productive.
Undoubtedly the yield on the 'dry
farms" between Bend and Prine
ville could be greatly increased by
au application of the methods
taught by Campbell.
