DOINO OOOD WORK.
At the next meeting of the Bend
Commercial Club on Monday even
ing, the personnel ot the standing
committees will be announced. The
organization witi then be completed,
and the club will be fairly launched
in its work of advertising and build
ing up Bend and the Bend country
A word cr two in this connection
will not be amiss.
Similar organisations arc found
in every community throughout
the Northwest where the citiscn
are cmbued with any noticeable de
cree of ginger or progrcssivenes.
Commercial clubs, arc recognized
Tas a necessity by every wide-awake
town which is growing and pushing
to the front. Large sums of monej
nre being expended in advertising
purposes and much good is beins
done by these various organizations.
Bend has finally gotten in line with
this work and intends to let the
world kiiovv of her great and varied
resources and possibilities.
Very few places have as many
features to advertise as has the Iknd
country and features that will ap
'peal to pcoplfc atid pul) in .new set
tlers" arid new' iddtistries. It has
timber, " water-pfcvvcr, irrigation
fertile 'soil and chtap land, pos
'sibty xainibgi pure water in abun
dance, beauwul scenery and a de
lightful climate wbiih is already
attracting the attention of seekers
lifter health. Nature has done her
part ami wrought with a lavish
"aaad ia this section. It's now up
io the jbcb of 'Bend to-do theirs.
Ah organization such as the
Bead Commercial Club naturally
'needs the support of everyone in
the community. Previous attempts
liave been made to establish a club
but thej' have failed on account of
the lukewarmness of the business
men. No one seemed to take
enough interest in the affair to give
it the needed attention. If the
present organization is successful
this lack of interest will have to be
overcome. And it is believed that
It is already largely overcome and
that action will take the place of
inaction. Thti business men are
now more alive to the possibilities
of good that the club can accom
plish. A commercial club is n business
proposition. It is not a' philan
thropic or social organization.
Social features have their part in
its life, but its chief purpose is a
Imslutss one. Its works should be
j'iven the attention that any other
business requires. Slipshod meth
ods and carelessness will accom
plish nothing Tmt failure! '
Being a business organization,
the club will need money to keep
it alive and enable it to work. That
tneans more or less of an expense
for its ineuiWrs. But the funda
mental principle underlying a com
mercial club' is that the money ex
pended will return a profit on t'e
investment. How'' JJy bringing.!
in new settiersaud new industries.
Thee cieate more business; more-
merchaudi.'io sold; more money is j
;n circulation;, nnu everyone is Dene-
fitted in n direct,, nnanciai, ivay.
Inquiries are being constantly &
ccired from men who are looking"
far business openings. A progres
sive commercial club can induce
owe of tkcfie to locate at Bend. In
act, work is alraady being done

whole canmtlltlty. There will be
no preference shown for the inter
ests of a few then or clique of in
dividuals. Ijverycfrort will look
toward the common good Hence,
all should leud their united and
harwwalous support Personal
preferences sbotiHl be put down.
If you do not like just the precise
manner in whicli this or that is
done, do uot let your disapproval
be the cause of hindering work
that is tending tovvahl the common
good. Again, let personal prefer
ences be lost sight df in the larger
work of buildiug lip the commu
nity. Let's get away from the
smallness of personal ambitions
and likes and dislikes and all pull
The organization of the present
club is going forward with pleasing
regularity and success. Everything
indicates that it will do much good
work. Plans for the extensive and
judicious advertising of this section
are already being perfected. Cor
respondence is now being had with
men who may be secured to locate
business enterprises here. Then
let us get together, pull together,
work together and accomplish . re
sults A press dispatch from Albany
states that out of 90 contest cases
in connection with Siletz home
steads everyone is said to have
been lost 'by the contestant. The
Albany Democrat says that after
Jan 1 no contest will be permitted
without a geod cause is shown to
exist, which wilt stop lots of fool
ishness. A measure, that would
stop the indiscriminate bringing of
contests against hgmestcads would
be a just law. Some people are
altogether too ready and willing to
bring a contest against a homestead
when there is really no grounds for
such action. After putting the man
who holds the homestead to an ex
pense of from $200 to $300 to de
fend his entry, the contestant invar
iably loses and no one is benefitted.
True, the homesieader retains the
homestead, but he is put to a lot of
bother and a heavy expense. There
are cliques of men who band to
gether arid make a business of
bringing these contests. Some
means should be devised whereby
such business could be stopped. A
legitimate contest should always be
allowed. But there are altogether
too many brought for which there
is no cause.
Sealed bids for the erection of ,a

Need of Uetter Cows.
From nil over the land comes the
inquiry for more and better dairy
cows. How arc you to get them?
Prices were never higher mid it is
only by the introduction of the
pure-breJ dairy sire that they ore
to be secured. Don't let someone
who has a bull to sell tend you to
believe that if you buy of him,
should he sire a male calf, it will
make a fine beef steer, nml, if 11
heifer, a profitable cow for the dairy.
There is a place for nil the different
breeds, but thU sort should have no
place in the dairy
Prom one railroad station in
Wisconsin there has been shipped
in the last year $200,000 worth of
dairy cows, mostly grades. Many
of these unule cows brought $75 to
JUoo. This is the result of the in
troduction of pure-bred dairy sires
for the last few years. Will .steers
pay any better than thin, even after
they nre fed? The demand for the
dairy cow will uot be supplied fur
some years. The west and south
west arc mating tnem by the car
load, while Mexico and japan arc
sending their representatives here
for our bcM pure breeds and grades
of the different dairy breeds The
yearly record of Colantha 4tlr3 Jo
hauna, n w drawing to a cloc. in
which she has produced t.oit 66
pounds of butter, 85.7 per cent
basis in ten months and nine days,
is another evidence of what a cow,
bred for a purpose, is capable of do
ing, while the records ot Yexsa,
Sunbeam, Dol Bloom and Loretta
D. arc fresh in tbe minds of all. I
would advise, where it is possible
to do so, that in introducing pure-
"bred sires a neighborhood agree on
some one breed and use sires of this
breed. Tbe buyer for your surplus
stock is much easier to attract,
and the changing of bulls with a
neighbor is simplified. The most
common error of today is the send
ing of so many mature sires to the
butcher's block and the use of im
It is now a well established, fact
that only the best results in breed

Hereditary traits are handed
down for many generations in ani
mals. It is said of the dog, which
turns round and round bclorc lying
down, that he is simply displaying
a tendancy that he has inherited
from his remote ancestry, the wild
dog, that made its bed in the tall
grass by turning round and round.
It takes several generations of
breeding to get any trait well estab
lished. The Scotch Collie might
in years be bred so that he would
show much the same tendencies as
the hunting dog, but what would
be the object, wheu wc have in the
pointer those, traits well established?

Care and feed have no' much to
do with your success as,,the cow. Do
not get the opinion' that you have
finished your task when yen have
a lot of good cows about you, for
you have just made a' beginning,
