WILL GROW FRUIT
Many Varieties Do Well
In Deschutes Valley.
ARfi VIOOROUS AND HEALTtyV
An Article that Answers tho Question;
Will the Land of the Deschutes
Valey flrow Prult?
Many people have Inquired if the
lands of Ihc Deschutes Valley will
Hucccpsftilly (row fruits. There
lias itcver bleu any question but
what frui( can be successfully und
profita'bi grown in this district. On
Ihc lands of the Deschutes Irriga
lion c t'flwer Company's scgrcga.
tlou the orphards arc as yet not old
enough tp y.iow fruit as cultivation
has been carried on for only about
two years. These orchards, how
ever, show great progress in the
time they have peen planted and
some of thpm will bear fruit this
On the south and cast of the seg
regation apples and other fruit have
lccn very successfully and prof
itably grown for u number of years
On tin north side of the lauds along
the Crooked River, and also along
the west side of the Deschutes
River, arc very profitable orchards
At Tcthrow Bridge, apples, plums,
berries and even peaches have been
uccsfuIy grown, while about
three mile) north oi Bend a few
trees left from an old orchard were
loaded to the breaking point last
Considering that fruit can be
grown on land nil around the sec
legation, it Is certainly reasonable
to conclude that i, can Je grown 011
these lands. The apple is a fruit
that requires a Vigorous climate for
Its proper development and flavor,
as is shown by the fact that it i
mot successfully grown in the
hither altitudes and northern
climate. With the sunshine and
clear days that vvc have, the apples
and fruit should nvc a good col
oriug which greatly assists in sell
inir the fruit.
Two miles northwest of Lttidlaw
011 the Columbia Southern Irriga
tion Company's lauds, Mr. Mutzig
planted nu orchard in the spring of
1904 which bore rum matured some
apples last fall. Mr. Wdst, whose
property adjoins the townsitc of
jjenu on tuc cast, lias a tunny
young orchcrd whlcli shows nn un
usual growth nnd will probably
(war some fruit this year. He has
also had great success with straw
berries and other small fruits
Raspberries, blackberries and
gooseberries as well as strawberries
crow unusually well as has been
demonstrated by many settlers in
Around Redmond many orchards
have been set out which show ex
ceptionally fine growth and consist
of varieties recommended for this

Oldenburg, Yellow Transparent,
Arkansas Dlack, Winter liannna,
Wine Sap, King SpiUenburg,
Snow, South Carolina Red and
Wealthy. In cherries, Montecello
King, The Special, Karly Rich
mond, Royal Anne, Ding and
others. Many settlers have also
set out plums, prunes and crab ap
ples, all of which arc showing fine
ArouiiiL the l'oweii liuttes are
many orchards set out by home
steaders which have been bearing
for some years, which however,
have not had the care that they
should. The finest orchard and
the best producer is at the Cove
near the mouth of the Crooked
River, where it empties iuto the
Deschutes River. This orchard
raises apples, peaches, plums, cher
ries, prunes and there are some
trees of English walnuts aud soft
shell almonds, all of which mature,

DEATH OF WILLIAM. ORCUTT.
A Hardy Pioneer Who Had Spent lib
Life In Frontier Countries.
I'uncral services over the remain
of the late William Orcutt were
held at the home last Saturday
morning at 10 o'clock and inter
ment was made in the Bend ceme
tery at 1 o'clock p. m , Rev. Mit
chell officiating. The relatives
present at the services were the
wife of the deceased and his three
sons, Prank, Wilt and Henry.
Mr. and Mrs Orcutt have spent
their lives on the frontier, first in
Indiana when that state was new
to ivctilcment, next in Minnesota,
and later in Oregon. On Nov. 19,
1904, they celebrated their golden
wedding anniversary, and the Min
neapolis Tunes, commenting on the
event at that time, printed an inter
esting article regarding the frontier
experiences of this venerable couple,
one of whom has now passed to his
reward. The article follows:

UST COMPRISES 7,026 ACRES
Clean Up Entire Segregation between
Bend and Redmond examined
by State Engineer Lewis.
The local office of the D. I. & P.
Co. this week received news from
the State Land Board that another
list of lauds had been approved by
that body as reclaimed. Trie list
comprises 7,026 acres, aud consists
of scattering tracts lying between
Bend and Redmond. The work of
leclamation was investigated by
State Engineer Lewis two weeks
ago with the result that the State
Land Board will recommend that
the lands be passed to patent.
This list of $7,026 acres will be
forwarded to Washington and as
soon as the officials there can take
action on the matter, patents to the
same will undoubtedly be issued to
the State of Oregon, as stipulated
in the Carey Act. Chief Engineer
Redfield says that all of the com
pany's lands lyine between Bend
and Redmond will then be patented
to the state, and settlers on any of
this land can secure deeds to their
holdings as soon as they comply
with the law as regards settlement
and cultivation. With the excep
tion of this last list, all this land
has already tbeen patented to the
R0SLAND PEOPLE OBJECT.
Want More Liberal Treatment from
National Forest Official.
Rosland, March 4. The people In
this vicinity are very indignant over the
stand which the forest service is taking
in the matter of agricultural laud in the
upper Deschutes valley.
This land is Identical with that of the
Orei-on Desert Selection No. II and sev
eral claims have been applied for by
bona fide settlers under the act of June
II, 1900. iue return irom tuctc several
aoiillcations arrived last week crantlnc
these claimants tract of land of from 60
to 145 acres but In no case the I Go acres
applied for. These claima have a scat
tering growth of blackjack pine on llem
and the forest service has culled out this
jack pine so close aa to even cut up a
single acre, allowing oue party q acres
ot the 160 acres applied for.
If this is a sample of the encourage
ment of which the Hon. Gifford Pinchot
and Secrtary Garfield spoke of extending
to bona fide settler in the forest reserve,
we certainly have our fill of such t n
oouragement and the wonderful benefits
which we are told will be ours at the
hands ot the forest service, and we want
no more of It.

the chickens. Mrs. Caldwell went
to chase the coyote away, not be
lieving that a coyote would tackle
a person. But she was surprised
when the thing took after her. Sbo
started to run, tripped and fell
firone on the ground. The coyote
umped on top of her and sank bis
teeth in her breast. She crabbed
Mr. Coyote by the throat and with
a death grip, choked it to death.
The coyote'siteeth were fastened in
her clothing and she succeeded In
overpowering him, aud never
loosened her grip until her desper
ate victim was dead, and dead to
stay. The coyote was skinned,
and Mrs. Caldwell will unboubtedly
keep the hide us a souvenir of the
mo3t blood curdling experience of
her life. Lakeview Examiner.

County Treasurer's Bond Increased.
The couuty treasurer's bond was
increased from $30,000 to $So,doo
at tb special meeting of the couuty
court last week. In the opinion of
the court the former figure was en
tirely too low to protect the county
from possible loss. The latter
figure represents the maximum
amount of funds that is controlled
by the treasurer at any one time.
County Treasurer King agreed
with the court that the amount
should be increased and has ac
cordingly furnished the additional
bond. Pripcville Journal.
