BENDS FERTILE SOIL.
An article Ise where In this issue
gives some figures rcRarditiK the
yield of grain last season in the
Bcud country. The figures speak
or themselves. A region that can
produce 83)1 bushels of oats to the
acre, and which on n geutral aver
age will produce 50 bushels of small
grain per acre, has much of which
to boast and be proud. And it
should always be remembered that
each succeeding year will bring bet
ter crops in this region. As the
vegetation rots and more humus is
worked into the soil, the yield will
increase. First-year land here nev
er produces as well as it docs in
succeeding years for the reason
that, because of the arid character
of the climate, the growth of
grasses has been scant and there is
practically no rotten vegetation in
;hcsoil in Us natural condition
JJutthat is rapidly improved as
stubble, green crops and manure
are plowed under.
Mr. Foster, who furnished The
Bulletin it figures, has lived in the
Valley 30 years. He snys. that the
average yield of oats there is about
f9 bushels per acre. When that is
compared with what the raw- land
telds here, it is clearly demon
strated what a fertile soil the farm
er of the Bend country has to work
It has been said that the Bend
pountry possessed all of the features
that make a great aud prosperous
region with one exception, and that
pjfeeption was the lack of mining.
It possesses timber in abundance,
it has a rich and pioductivc soil, it
lias waterpowcr suffuiant to develop
hundreds of tlxiusands of horse
rower for manufacturing and trans
portation purposes, arid it has a
climate that cannot be surpassed
nny where. In the case of the Bend
country there was only "One thing
ihou lackest." Happily there is
row promine that that one thing
vill not lc lacsing much longer. If
the gold-bearing rock discovered
n Powell Buttes proves to be as
rich in the precious metal as it
promises to be, there is every rea
son to believe that a profitable and
quite extensive mining industry
will be developed only a few miles
.cast of Bend. Here's success to
the ticw industry.
A full house greeted the speak

tipokc from the thought, "Ye must

'with corn, with apples, with pota
toes, with all fruits, perfection only
comes by the new birth into condi
tions far higher and nobler. His
remarks were listened to with much
interest. Lawyer Henson conceded
the general principle of heredity,
but uave it us bw opinion that gen

that their children had little of the
Dr. Turrey spoke of the broad,
generally uccepted truth of hered

Two of the speakers were absent

in their stead as to heredity itf the
;uiraal and Ain human life, and in
sisted that we could wake the truth

ourselves, and coming to know our
selves, and then encouraging the

Importance of Pruning Young Trees.
Young trees arc often more neg
lected and misused than older ones
in the matter of pruning. The
framework of the future orchard
tree should be cntirel5' formed when
the third year's pruning has been
given Two ottcu no attention is
given to this important part of tree
training and in other cases the tree
is given the proper shape wnen
planted, but here the work is al
io wed to stop If wc arc to have
the character of the tree top deter
mined at the third spring, ctae
study and attention as well as work
must be given the young trees each
For those who are unfamiliar
with tbcgrow'ngoftrecsand plants
the basic principle can not be too
often insisted upon that most trees
and plants must be cut back when
Yearling whips of all sorts of
orchard trees ore the best to plant
Such trees usually have uo
branches. Cut them back to a point
13 to 24 inches above where the
first branch is wanted. The mere
cutting back will induce most of
the buds to form branches If not
cut back, usually but n few com
paratively weak branches will push
out and jhesc near the top. Many
trees die outright wuere tuts im
portant feature is neglected. The
second year, from three to five
branches are selected to form the
framework of the tree. All the
rest arc removed The selected
branches should be properly spaced
around the stem so as to form a
symmetrical, well-balanced top.
One should constantly have tn
mind the way the tree will appear
when it is full grown. Many may
think at first that the distance le
tween the first and last limbs as
given above is far too great, but
when the branches grow to be six
and eight inches in diameter the
proportion will not appear out of
place. In fact, we believe that
even n greater distance, say 30
inches, will result in J stronger
tree. These framework branches
should be pruned back to about
14 inches. Many side branches
will develop on each of these limbs
during the second year's growth.
The second pruning will consist in
selecting two branches on each of
the last year's limbs, one near the
center ot the top and the other at
about 14 inches distance. The
main branch is cut oil just above
the last one selected. The rest of
the branches are removed as before.
The selected branches are cut back
to about 14 inches. The third pruu
ing is mere repetition, selecting two
branches on each one of last year's
growth ptapcrly spaced and head
ing them in. If wc have started
the tree with three limbs, wc should
now have, after the third pruning
24 scaffold limbs, or, if the start
was made with five, there will be
40 limbs. This will be enough to
satisfy any one and meets the ob
jection sometimes raised that this
.ystem does not provide a sufficient

doubtful if 40 limbs will ever be

in this respect.
