BUY 37 FINE CATTLE
Blooded Stock Purchased
for the Bend Country.
PROM $100 TO $100 PHR HEAD
Davenport Brother Secure Piircllrcd
Short Horns for the Davenport
The Haven pott brothers have re
cently purchased 37 head of pure
bred Short Horn cattle which will
he brought to tint Davenport-Stan-ley
ranch cast of Rend this full.
These cuttle were bought from the
well-known Judge Dyrkclt herd,
which if stationed on the Judge's
much across the Columbia from
Hood River and includes itt the
number three head of show cattle.
The cattle are of the very best
stock and ranged in price from $100
Owing to the present lack of
pasturage oh the Davetiort-SUmley
ranch, the cattle will lie kept at
Hood River during the summer,
bU will be driven to liend this fall.
They will be the beginning of what
will ultimately be one of the finest
herds of cattle' in the state.
When announcement was made
that Messrs. Davenport and Stan
ley had purchased u large tract of
laud east of lJenil, it was said that
it wns their Intention to build up
one of the largest ami best stock
ranches in the country. Ami they
rfre evidently working; with that
end in view. They already have
12 head of pure-bred Cotswold
khecp on the rnjich and Mr. Dawn
Krt says that another small bunch
of pure-bred Cotawolds will be
bought later in the sen son. They
ako plan 011 hitylug about too head
of Merino slteep. Thene will fur
nish the foundation of a fine flock
of sheep. Otherjuncy stock will
be added from time to time, as they
expect to engage in stock raising
on n large scale and will breed only
The woik of clearing and devel
oping this much wns commenced
last fall. They now have in all
400 acres cleared and ready for the
plow. Of UiU tract 250 acres arc
already plowed and seeded to wheat
and oats and later alfalfa will also
lie seeded. They expect to seed
the entire .100 acres during the
CAA1P13HLL SYSTEM WINS.
Seed Sprouts Readily In Field Culti
vated by Scientific Methods.
Jast fall two fields were plowed
by the P. II. D. Co. and prepared
to catch atul absorb the winter's
moisture, one being cultivated
according to the methods advo
acted by the noted expert in dry
farming, II. W. Campbell, with
the exception that no sub-surface
packer wns used; the other prepared
in line with the old-time methods.
The fitild under the Campbell sys
tem is the one lying to the south of
the road as you drive to the com
pany's mill from Uetul; the other
is the Tnber field uear Pilot Butte.
As soon as the last snow left the
groiind this spring, the field next
to theihiill was thoroughly disked
and the surface soil pulverized to a
dust the ideal condition to retain
the moisture. The Tabcr field was
left with a crust over the surface
likewise the ideal conditiou to lose
the moisture by evaporation. Re
cently the Taber field Was seeded to
oats, Ten days later the mill field
or the Campbell system tract
was likewise seeded to oats taken
from the same batch as those
seeded on the Tabcr field. The
oats on the Campbell tract have
sprouted fine and the field is green,
while those on the other field have
not yet appeared above the giound.
Irrigation water has not yet been
applied to either field. Score No. 1
for the Campbell method.
The company's field on the west
side of the river is now being pre
pared in accordance with Camp
bell's methods. A few furrows arc
plowed around the field, the horses
arc then hitched onto a Campbell
sub-surface packer and the soil
firmly packet! three or four inches
below the surface. An Acme har
row 1' then used to thoroughly
pulverize the surface soil. While
it is of course too early to make
any predictions regarding this field,
good returns are expected from it.

BURNED TO A CRISP
John Prior Alcets Awful
Death nt PrincvUIc.
A PIONEER OP CROOK COUNTY
Mouse Destroyed by Fire Last Sunday
Night nnd Prior's Dead Oody Was
Pound In the Ruins, '
Another pioneer of Crook county
has been burned to dc.-.th at I'rine
villc, this time the flames claiming
the life of John Prior. Prior had
been living nlone in a small house
in Prinevillc. About 11:30 o'clock
Suflday night fire was discovered iu
the house, which was completely
gutted and burned to a shell.
Prior's dead body was found within
the Ivonse, burned to a crisp.
According to report the ttnfortti
nate niau had been drinking Sun
day and had gone home under the
influence of liquor. From indica
tions found after the fire was extin
guished it is presumed 'that Prior
overturned a lighted lamp which
exploded and set fire to the
building. He was probably too in
toxicated to put out the flames and.
It is supposed, was suffocated by
the smoke before the flames reached
A dispatch from Princville says
that Prior "was a native of Ireland
aud combined all of the enthusiasm
of his race with the fervor of the
true patriot. He was for tnauy
years one of the town's characters.
He carnod his living at odd jobs
and the townspeople were generous
to him, for despite a certain ten
dency toward habitual bibulous in
dulgence, he was always Imbbliug
with merriment and goodwill to all.
He was noted for the everyday use
of a sot of expressions and was al
ways an object of interest to strang
ers. He leaves as his little estate
the lot on which his house stood."
Prior was 67 years old, a veteran
of the Civil war and a long-time
pioneer of Crook county. He has
no kuown relatives living here
about. Interment was made last
