Five fanners living In the Laid
law and Tutnalo districts have dug
wclli and have been so fortunate as
to find water at a depth of 10 feet.
The water Is cold and pure and Is
there In great abundance for stock
and domestic piirpor.es, and will
prove a great Loon to those who
urc furtuune enough to have these
wells. The five farmers arc Clias
Spauith, Gene Wimer, G. W.
Snyder, L. II. Root and Frank
Not long ago one of these men
thought he would dig down a few
feet and sec if he could find water.
flit neighbors ridiculed him in a
good natureu way and said he was
throwing away his time and labor.
He replied that M didn't care if
he was wasting hii timethat it
lie failed to find water he would at
least know what the soil was like.
So he continued his digging and
when he had got downright or nine
feet struck a . fine flow of water.
The neighbors who were so ready to
ridicule him at once followed
his example with the result that
all of them now have wells. f
The presence of water at this
deph is explained from the fact
that irrigation ditches have been
carrying water through that section
for about four years, and It is be
lieved the seepage from the ditches
is gradually accumulating in dis
tricts where the underground forma
tion is such that it will hold the water.
This accumulation of water makes
possible the wells.

Several matters were discussed,
among them being the question of
providing means lor keeping tbe
library open every afternoon and
evening and tnkiug advantage of
the free circulating libraties sent

take money, the ladies decided to
give a basket social in Lara hall to

them at auction.
Girls under fifteen will briug

Beavers Aro Multiplying Rapidly.
Beavers seem to be on the in
crease in this part of the state, tin
der the protection of the law which
provides a $500 fine for killing one
of these industrious little animals.
All the creeks nnd rivers in north
cm and central Lake and Kalamath
counties, in timbered sections es
pecially, are being taken possession
of to a greater, or less extent by the
beaver, and in some few instances
they are causing trouble to irri
gationists by building dams that
interfere with the flow of water.
One colony has taken possession
of Silver creek about a half mile
above town and has built several
dams-and houses, cutting many
quaking asp saplings, some of
which were larger than a stove
pipe. Silver Lake Oregonian.

BEND BANK IS OPEN
Resumed Business Mon
NOW STRONGGR THAN EVGR
Judge Bradshaty Dismissed Receiver
Soon m He .Mad a Report
from Receiver Ellis.
The Central Oregon Banking &
Trust Company of Bend opened its
doors last Monday morning to again
resume business. Judge Bradshaw
was satisfied that the bank was per
fectly solvent as soon as be received
the report sent to him by Receiver
Bills, and at once ordered that the
receiver be dismissed and gave per
mission fdr tbe bank to open.
Business stdrtcd out at the bank
in a brisk manner Monday morn
ing, a goodly sum having been de
posited by Bend people the first
day that the bank was open. This
has continued during tbe week,
which goes to show that the peo
ple and especially the business
men of Bend have as much confi
dence as ever in the local banking
John Steidl. president of the bank,
is very well pleased with the hearty
co-operation which the people have
given in reopening the bank. He
oDDrccia'tcs their support: very
much, and desires to thank the de
positors for tbe readiness with
which they agreed to the plans pro
posed for the opening of the bank
As The Bulletin predicted a few
weeks ago, tbe institution opens
stronger than ever. Several busi
ness men of the town have taken
stock in the bank and two of these
will be elected directors, namely E
A. Sather and H. P. J. McDonald
The board of directors will then be
composed of John Steidl, J. B.

WILL DRILL FOR OIL.
Deep Wells Will Be Sunk la Madras
Plans have been made to begin
at an early date prospecting for oil
in the vicinity of Madras, aud the
numerous indications of oil which
bdvc been found in this district
wilt be thoroughly prospected in
order to dctcrmiue whether or not
oil exists here in paying quantities
These plans have been perfected,
and it is stated that there is suffi
cicnt capital behind the enterprise
to insure a thorough investigation
of the various prospects, and actual
drilling will begin just as soon as
sufficient leases have been secured
upon the laud in the immediate
vicinity of the points where the first
wells will be sunk, Mr. Frank For
est, a prominent stockman of this
county, is now engaged in securing
these leases, which it is reported
are being very generally signed
without any opposition.
It has been known for several
years past that good oil prospects
had been discovered in this section
of Crook couuty, and several years
ugo an option was taken on the
Dave Barnett ranch with a view to
making a thorough investigation of
a prospect found on his place, but
this pltlu never materialized, and
up until this time there has uot
been an effort made to follow up
and test any of these prospects.
These indications of oil have been
fouud in a territory of considerable
scope, covering practically all of
this cud of western Crook county.
It is the plan of the preseut pros
pectors to sink several deep wells.
Preparations have been made to go
to a depth of a 1000 to 1500 feet.
The leases under which the pros
pecting will be conducted are liberal
in their provisipus for the land
owner, whose interests in the land
and In any discQvery made upon it
are amply protected. Among other,
provisions in the lease is one that
if no oil is found in paying quanti
ties, but water is found, the well
becomes the property of the laud
owner without any cost to him ex
cept the actual cost of the casing.
If, however, artesian water is found
nnd no oil, the land owner agrees
to purchase the same at the cuoto
!mary price of a well drilled to a
depth of 600 feet, irrespective of
whether the well has been drilled
to a depth of 1000 or 3000 feet.
And, any rancher in this district
cdn afford to pay the price af a 600
foot drilled well to secure artesian
water on his land. In the event
oil is fo.und in paying quantities,
the lease provides for a royalty of
ten per cent to the land owner, so
that in any even the, the land owner,
has his intcrc-fts taken care of and
cannot but be benefited by the work
done on his place.- The leiscs also
provide for on option on tnc land,
at a price fixed by the owner.
