A large )lccc or development
work that will Iw undertaken by
the I). I. & V CowIUiln the next
few month i the eottatrttction of
another latge main canal to water
about 85,000 acre of Inud lying on
the north of the company's wsgrc
tfatiqii. The point of diverilou for
this new waterway will be about n
mile north of Bend, and the cnnal,
when completed, will be 28 miles
in length. It will rtui iu a north
easterly direction following quite
cloaely the I'rinevitle road and will
empty into the old river bed.
I'or the past week or 10 day a
crew of surveyor tinder Kngineer
King have beu waking surveys
along the river, locating a suitable
diversion point and a site for ada'm.
The method by which the water,
will be taken from the river will be
different from that heretofore em
ployed by the tug irrigation com
pany. No flume will be used. In
stead, a darn .0 feet high will be
built acroaa the river. This will
raise the water to such a height
that it can be diverted directly into
the canal. The first cost of the
dam will be quite expensive but it
will be time foe all time with prac
tically no coat for maintenance,
while a board flume is a constant
money-eating concern and requires
ewuMeraWe sums etch year to keep
it in repair. The place where the
dam will be built lies close to the
north Hoe of Sec. 59. Tp. 17. R. 12.
The new canal wjll water practi
cally all that part of the segrega
tion lying between the Deschutes
river aud the old river bed north of
the Prinaville road.
Ahlde from furnishing'tlie means
for diverting water for the new
cnnal, the dam will also provide a
flue power site. A power plant
will undoubtedly be built there
shortly after the dam is completed.
Being situated so close to Bend n
plant at the dnm could cosily sup
ply the town with electric light-and
power, aud could f uriiUu the energy
for many of those mill, and factor
ies that will some day be built at
Bend and vicinity.
Superintendent Rcdfiold said that
work on the chuu and canal will in
all probability be commenced early
next spring- Other work now in
progress will keep all the men busy
up to that time that the company
can secure.
Work on the Stove Flume.
Lumber for the stave flume that
is to carry water across the old riv
er bed in the Powell Buttcs section
is being hauled ns rapidly as teams
can be procured. Superintendent
Rcdficld says it is almost impossible
to get teams to move this lumber,
The company has 350,000 feet to
be hauled from the Higlitowcr-
Smith mill to the site of the flume
nnd are naviurr 48 a thousand to
move it, blit men and teams are so
scarce that very little has yet beeu
hauled out.
The fTume proper is being manu
factured nt Tncomn, On Sept. 10
sections of this flume filling two
carloads werehipped from Tacoma
A big shipment of iron, such ns
bolts, hoops, etc., iu all 48,000 lb.,
is also euroutc for Shaniko. A
soon as this material can be gotten
on the ground n crew wilLbc put at
work building the big stnve flume.
Mr. Rcdficld said Ire exacted to
move a crew there about tlie 15th
of next mouth.
Present System Will (le Abandonee
for One More Comfortable.
On next Tuesday, October 1, the
Bend, Madras & Shaniko Stage Co.
will cense to run its stages and the
bushiest, wilt be taken over by J.
II. Wennndy, who will operate a
double i::. -ry and stage. Under
thh arrangement travel into this
Motion will be much more satisfac
tory, as the passenger can employ
whatever means of travel he desires
as to time. A large stable has been
built at Shaniko. There teams
nnd rigs will be always on hand as
well as at this end of the line.
Supposing there was otic passen
ger wishing to come through. He
can get a good rig at Shaniko,
drive through to Mend, leave the
team at the barn here aud his both
er and expense is ended. If there
are several passengers a hack will
be furnished and they can drive
through, taking as much time as
needed. If a driver is desired, one
will be provided. The fare will be
the sume as now, $8.50, with round
trip privileges. Passengers who
are in a hurry can come right
through. A light hack stage serv
ice will be provided, leaving
Shaniko soon after the arrival of
the train and reaching Bend the
next day. This same service will
also be furnished from Bend to
Shaniko when desired. Horses will
be kept along the line at relay sta
tions In order to make thi service
Under tut new arrangement there
will be a much better express serv
ice. Outfits to carry express alone
will be put on and hereafter express
will uot be laid over on u xount 0
the stage being overloaded with pas
sengers. Perishable express will
be brought through daily; all other
clashes every two days.
The regular stage service has uot
given entire satisfaction. The all
night ride nnd half of the next day
was too tiresome a trip for most
people. It had n bad effect on
prospective settlers. Travel- here
after will be in comfortable buggies
and hacks and the passenger can
take as much time as he wishes.
The expense will be much less also
as when there arc no passengers
there will be no need to scud out

Novel Protection against Coyotes.
Theodore Rieger, who has a fine
ranch five mile3 south of Madras,
is engaged quite extensively in the
chicken business, aud while iu town
Tuesday Mrs. Rieger told of a sim
ple device by which they have been
able to-keep off the coyotes, the
most destructive enemy the chicken
industry has in this section. The
coyotes had become quite bold and
killed a number of chickens iu the
yard in vhich they were euclosed.
Mr. Rieger then stretched a small
twine string around the yard, eight
or 10 inches above the ground, and
the string has proved as effectual a
barrier to the coyotes as a stone
wall would have been. They will
venture us far as the string, but
will uot cross It, Pioneer,

Second Annual Meeting of Deschutes
Valley Fair Association Gives UvN
dencc of a Fertile Soil.
KitDJioxo, Sept. 23.--The sec
ond annual Deschutes Valley Pair
has gone into history. At this
time a full list of awards is not pro
curable so this week notes only will
be given leaving the list of premi
ums until later. The outcome fully
justtfitd the writer's choice of a
motto for the fair of bigger, better
and busier than ever. Ail classes
of stock and farm products were
better represented than last year by
from 25 to joo per cent.
The three, general horticultural
exhibits were a revelation to every
body even after the excellent ex
hibit made by the Cove orchard
last year. Needless to say that Mr
IJocgli carried off the blue this veer

riic. secretary as usual was over
worked. We predict that auother
year superintendents except in the
farm products department will have
to do tlieir own clerical work leav
ing the secretary to make entrie
for that department and the super
intendent to arrange the exhibits.
The Lone Pine Trading Com
pany sent up their big black Per-
cheron stallion aud a 1050 pound
yearling colt both of which carried
off blue ribbons.
Professor Kent's work in judging
both stock and farm products was
highly appreciated both by exhib
itors and the general public as well
as his address on Friday evening.
We all hope to meet the professor
again. He took occasion during
his lecture, advising us to keep our
dairy industry growing, to compli
ment us upon the quality of the
cows he was called upon to judge,
dnd the good ones were not all
there cither.
The weather man lias been our
ally for the time of the fair, dealing
us out nu almost ideal article.
Considering the late spring and
early autumn frosts nnd the decid
edly cool summer we were much
surprised nt the showing of toma
toes, pumpkins and other tender
aud long season vegetables that
was made.
Visitors, were 'present from all
sections, from the Bend couutry of
Oregon to the Big Bend country of
Washington. North, east, south
aud west were all well represented.
Of course nt the break up we
watched the culinary department
nnd got a new line on some of the
good cooks. Wc felt like saying,
"How would you like to be the
news man?" The judges hardly
tasted the pies nnd cakes else where
they awarded a blue ribbon they
would have given two or three of
Among many other things that
deserve especial mention are the
butter exhibits. Any one of them
looked good enough to cat and
continued looking so until the close.
V I Redmond s general exhibit
of farm products of over 60 vari
eties called forth a great deal of
complimentary comment and would
have attracted attention in any fair.
