Interesting Ball.
Sunday's (larno Was Ono of the Clos
est Contests liver fought Out
on tho Local Diamond.
One of the moht exciting, hardest
fought, and closest ball games ever
played on the Hcnd diamond was
that of last Sunday when the Hcnd
and Redmond teams crossed bats.
The Rend team has been playing
losing games all ticason, while the
Redmond boys have hud victory
lurched 011 their banner ailcr every
game in which they have engaged
with one exception, Ruf defeat
was in store for them when they
came (o. Hcnd, the score, however,
being a very close one, 0 to 10.
The result of the game was in
doubt ,o' le very cud'. When
Hcnd went to' bat at the last half of
the ninth inning Uic"scorc sheets
showed a tic, 9 to 9. jxclcmcnt
ran high. The rooters' nerves vfcre
on keen edge. Johnson went to
bat and went out. Welder did like
wise. It began to look as though
the game would be carried into the
tenth inning. Then Slim Staats
picked up the stick and luck, pure
and unadulterated, ran with him.
He fanned but Tctherow muffed
and threw to first, where Ikklcr
fumbled and finally dropped the
sphere, putting Slim sale on the
bag. Stcidl went to bat and with
the first delivery Slim started for
second and Heckcr crrorcd, letting
the ball pass him. Slim didn't
loiter there but was up and looking
for third on the dead run. Red
mond's center, who had backed up
Decker on second, threw wild,
clear over third's head, and Staats
scored, giving the gnmc to Ucnd.

DISTRICT No, 6t boasts one of the best school houses in the county outside of
the town schools. The above Illustration show that their claims are well
founded. This handsome school bulldlug wos completed on September aS,
i7, the total cost, including furniture, amounting to f 1,300, Last year there
were six mouths of school in the district, with an enrollment of 15 pupils. The
uxcrago salary paid for the teacher was f6o per mouth. As yet no teacher has been
engaged for thu coming year, but one Is desired. The directors of the district arc:
C. L. Olst, chairman: 1 Levcrciue, R. M. Wright. J. II. Kd wards, clerk. The
school boasts an organ nnd a fine bell.
As is common with many country school houses, the building Is nlsauscd for
church purposes. Rvery Sunday at 2 o'clock p. 111. Sunday school services are
held, and are well attended. Robert M. Wright Is superintendent and Mrs. Pul
Hum assistant. Preaching services are held twice a month.
Tho building, with Its white paint, neat appearance, and commanding loca
tlon, lends 0 touch of prosperity to the district In which It sthuds, and proves that
the people who built it arc progressive. The district may well be proud of its
Hcnd would have but mighty little
on which to brag by winning a game
in that manner, had it not been
that they played much better ball
than their opponents during the
last half of the game At the end
of the fourth inning Redmond had
Hcnd beat to the tunc of 8 to 4, and
if the visitors had played as they
should Hcnd would have had no
license to defeat them.

Will Sink to a Depth of
4000 Feet If Necessary.
Stole Watches from Merchant anil the
Sheriff Now Has Him A On be
Drowned at Paisley.
Actual drilling commenced last
Thursday on the prospect well
which is to lc sunk by the Madra
Oil & Gas Company, nnd unless
Rnmcuuexpccted accident dclay.s
them, work will be continued stead
tly night and day until they have
solved the question of whether or
not oil exists in paying quantities
underneath the wheat fields ol
north-central Crook county. The
Pioneer says the work is in charge
of General Manager Ross, who has
had 23 years experience in drilling
for oil, and preparations have been
made to continue the first well to
.1 depth of 4000 feet if ucccssary,
although it is confidently expected
that oil will be found long before
that depth is reached.
A large drill tower, $ feet high,
has been erected at the point where
the well Is beijig drilled. Water is
piped frofp one of the springs near
there down to the camp, furnishing
a good supply of water (or the
engine and for all other purposes
at the camp. A blacksmith shop
has been put in for sharpening the
tools, and the bellows is operated
by the engine which runs the drill.
A boarding house, bunk-houc and
complete camp outfit have been
erected on the ground, so that those
who have charge of the work will
be comfortably situated.
The first prospect well is being
drilled on land belonging to Oscar
Cox In section 12, township 13
south, range 14 cast, on the west
slope of Grizzly mountain.
Arrested for Stealing Watches.
The Prineville Tourual savs that
Sheriff Elkins has arrested Jack
Hagati lor stealing a numocr 01
watches from J. C Rush, the La-
raonla merchant.
It was last fall while Mr. Rush
was at supper that some one broke
tn the back door of the store and
made away with a tray containing
several bundled dollars worth of
watches. The sheriff was notified
and that officer has been on the
lookout ever since for the guilty
party. The first of the week Hagau
came to town with one of the
stolen watches in his pocket. The
sncriit gaiucrcu mm in. 1 ue case
against Eagan is very strong as
the uumbcr ol tlic watcu lottna 011
him agrees with the number of one
of the missing timepieces. Kagan
is a middle-aged man and is well
known iu the Lamonta district.
Run over by Freight Wagon.
Lost Thursday afternoon, while
driving a four-horse freighting out
fit near Madras, C. J. bondquest
fell in front of the heavily loaded
wagon, which passed over him,
breaking his leg nnd inflicting
other very painful and serious in
juries. He stepped down on the
trout wheel wuen the horses startcu,
throwing him tinder the front of
the wagon and pulling the front
wheel across his arm and leg before
he could extricate himself. With
rare presence of mind Mr. Sond
quest caught the wheel ns it passed
over hira and threw himself out
from uuder the wagon before the
secottd wheel reached him. The
wheel passed over his right leg,
breaking it below the kntc and
bruising his foot very badly, then
over the fleshy part of his arm
which was very badly bruised al
though no boues were broken. Two
of his fingers were anight by the
wheel and the ends of them very
badly crushed.
The accident occurred about
three miles south of Madras, and it
was fully an hour after the accident
before Mr. Sondnuist was found
lying in the road, too badly injured
tit m-ive himself. He was found
iv the Rend stage, and the passen
gers fixed a place for him in the
ttom of the stage and made him
.is comfortable as tw.ssibte until
they could get him to Madias,
where he was placed under thecari
of Dr. Snook. Pioneer
Water at 71 Feet
A Y. ILint.i was in town last
Monday from his home near Trail
Crossing. He brought the good
news that water had been found on
his place at a depth of 71 feet and
that the supply is apparently in
exhaustible Mr. Hanta has been
hutilitit! water for his stock and for.
all ranch purp-es for the past ri
years as it was generally supposed
that water could not be found in
the locality in which he lives ex
cept at great depth, which would
necessitate a heavy expenditure in
sinking a well. Mr. Hanta says
there appears to be a large stream
of it, a- they arc unable to lower
the water appreciably tn the six
inch hole by steady pumping. The
water is cool and palatible and will
prove a blessing to Mr. Hanta aftcr
all these years of water-hauling.
Paisley Uabe Drowned.
A sad drowning accident oc
curred at Paisley "lalt Friday after
noon, when little I-reddie Alexander
Farra met bis death. There is a
small brook running through the
grounds about three feet deep.
The little fellow, aged about three
years, had been playing in the
yard, as usual, just a moment be
fore he was missed. Search was
made and after some time he was
found in the water, lodged in a
wire fence crossing the stream.
The child was dead when taken
out oi the water. He had floated
about too yards, passing under two
wire fences and was badly disfigured
from contact with the barbed wire.
The little fellow was buried Satur
day at 3 p. m. from the Methodist
church. Lakeview Examiner.
Changes In National Forest.
The Goose Lake and Fremont
national fprests have been cpnsoli
datcd and the whole will hereafter
be known as the Fremont forest.
It has been divided into several
districts and a head ranger will be
put in charge of each district. A
district on the north, with head
quarters at Rosland, has been cut
ofT from the Fremont and added to
the Blue Mountain national forest,
under Supervisor A. S. Ireland of
Prineville. Jay Hillines will con
tinuc in charge of the Stiver Lake,
district. Oregonian.
dold In Northern Lake.
Quite a number of prospectors
arc now in Northern Lake looking
for cold, and a number of local
people have caught the fever and
are planning prospecting trips. A

Secretary V. L. Crisscy of the
Oregon State Dairy Association has
