NEW MAIL SERVICE
Contract Lot to the Haul,
MmlruH & Shnniko Co.
I HENEPIT TO MANY
Strong thoush Unverified Rumor that
the New Stage l.lno linn lleen
Awarded Moll Contract.
According to reports that roach
Hand this week, the Hcnd, Madras
& Shauiko Stogu Co. ha'i been
grunted the contract for carrying
mall from Shanlko to Bend. While
the olTiciuI.H of the company at this
end of the line have not yet been
notified to this effect, yet the re
ort comes through ntich sources
as to make it quite probable that
the new i correct.
The contract stipulates that scrv
ice on the now route shall begin
May 1,0 and shall handle the mall
from Ikiid, I.aldlaw, Redmond,
Culver, Warm Springs and Madras
to and from Shnniko.
The granting of this contract
mean that mull .service through
WtMern Crook county will be
mneli better hereafter. The new
stupe gt u into Hcnd from about 2
to $ o'clock daily and Mend people
will now receive their mail tit that
time. While service over the nkl
route has been very satisfactory for
the HUt few weeks, during the
winter and during wet weather it
him been very uitsatUfactory. Dur
ing the time when the roads wore
in the pnort condition stages on
the new lute reached lleud regit
larly at abou,t 4 o'clock u 111. It
is thus seen that the problem of
waiting for one' mull until the
next morning after it arrives, mid
then often receiving It a day lntt
on account of the Mage having
mussed connections at I'riuevHIe, is
now a thing of the past.
Another feature of the service
that is of gtent value to the section
served is that it gives no much bet
ter service between the towns along
the new Hue. These towns arc
bound together largely by the same
bushiest Interests and have needed
closer and more rapid mail column
nieatlon. This will now be granted.
Defeats llcud School Team by a Score
The first baseball game of the
season was witnessed by a goodly
crowd last Saturday afternoon
when the school teams of Ucud and
I'rlnevlllc crossed bats on the local
diamond, As the above score nig
nines, the result was disastrous to
the Hcnd boys b.ttt they put up 'a
stifT fight and "died game." And
they lost to a tcaui that is qom
posed of skillful mid speedy play
ers that showed ample evidence of
being well canclicd and well pac
Heed. The first half of the game was n
walk-away for the Prineville chaps.
It was the lleud boy's first game
and tha general opinion was that
the local team was n little nervous.
Most of the runs by Prhicville were
made onv errors by Hcnd errors
that n little more practice and
coaching, will eliminate. Later the
locul boys took a grip on their
nerve and played like .veterans, the
last half of the game being a well
matched cotitest nip and tuck 'as
to which team was playing the best
ball., But in. the. flurry of th.e, first

A telegram to K. C. Rowlec the

might rest nnd rccutmratc from
business labors. The persistent
attacks of the disease won, how
ever, ami lie cliwl last nuinlay,
April 31, at his home in Columbus.
Mr. Johnston is well known in
Western Crook county through his
connection with the Deschutes
Irrigation & Power Co. liver
since this company took over the
irrigation holdings of the Pilot
Iluttc Development Co., Mr. John
ston has been an active member in
the first-named organisation and
has been its vice-president and
general manager. Ills official con
nection with the work of reclaim
ing the dert hereabout made his
presence here necessary more or
less of the time and each year he
has spent considerable . time in
M". Johnston had milimltwl faith
in the future of the upper Deschutes
valloy. He himself had invested
in ami devcloiMHl a large ranch of
taSo acres 18 mileti east of lkiul,
and during his last visit to this
place he told a Rullelin representa
tive that this valley would some
day be n marwlous producer of
farm products, fruit, etc. and that
It would occupy the same position
to Portland qs the fertile Mohawk
valley doas to New York city.
Mr Johnston was also n promi
nent business man of Columbus,
being president of the Columbus
Gas Light & Heating Co. He
leaves a wife and three children
a sou, Charles, and two daughters.

Parties at Madras read of Mr.
Piper's work and wrote to him,
asking if he would not make an
attempt to spread the deadly di

Madras and Hay Creek sections.
Mr. Piper replied that he would be
glad to make the attempt and asked
that several live animals be caught
aud sent to him. He also wrote as

Oil Found at Dufur.
The oil discoveries at Dufur took
quite a boom the first of this week,
and oil stock has gouc up with a
jump. On Monday John btevens,
John Johnston and Carey Ballard,
in company with Dr. podds, went
up to the prospect in the field of
Mr. Duftir to investigate aud came
home all puffed up with their suc
cess. . 1 hey hau found that there
was oil running aift of the ground
in something like the clear form,
and the next day some more of the
Duftir stockholders went up to in
vestigate with the same results,
and now oil stock is high with none
for sale. Dispatch.
Rattlers Out Early,
Rattlesnakes arc making an early
appearance iu the Madras section,
five large ones having already been
killed this year on Agency Plains,
says the Floueer. Tliree were
killed by Cliff and Ray Jackson,
two others by one of the Gard boys,
last, week. One killed by Ray Jack-
soti had nine rattles and a button.
Last year a number of rattle
snakes were killed upoa the plains,
but very few were killed unli
much later in the year. Thpy were
more numerous about harvest time,
and as many as eight or ten were
killed under one hay stack en sev
Experiment Farm at Warmsprfngs.
Mr. Cdv'ey, superintendent of the
Warnlsprings Agency, says they arc
conducting a sniall experiment farm
over at the Indian school, where
they expect to make a number of
interesting experiments along agri
cultural lines. Among other things
they will try "dry farming" meth
ods upon a part of their land, with
a view to testing its adaptability to
soil of the character of that on the
reservation, which is quite similar
to that of Agency Plains. Mr.
Covey has ordered one of the sub
surface packers ndvoc-atcd by Mr.
Campbell aud will give t ja: m''i-

on which experiments will be con
ducted will consist of about So acres,
40 acres of which will be put in

Campbell system of summer-culture.
Fruit Prospects Good.
J. R. Harvey was in Prineville
from his Powell Butte ranch the
first of t'e week and reports excel
lent prospects for the fruit crop this
year. Mr. liarvey says tuat out
few of the trees have bloomed as
yet and the fact that they arc late
in this respect practically insures
an excellent crop of all kinds of
fruit There are over 100 trees on
this place that are in full bearing.

John C. Trotter got water in a
