An Interesting Stnrv Is Told In Con-
ricctlon with This find, of an
Indian's Secret lildorado.
D V. Mackintosh of Rend spent
two or three months iu the Cascade
mountains during the past summer,
nud while there located u territory
of mineral U'ariug rock extending
over quite a large section. It lies
in 11 northwesterly direction from
Diamond I'eak and covers several
square miles. While Mr. Mackin
tosh did not find anything of value
tit the way of quartz, yet he con
siders it quite reu-otiRbltf to believe
that rich mines may be discovered
there some day, judging from the
character nud formation of the
There is an interesting legend
told that may have n connection
with the section above refer led to
Mr. Mackintosh was accompanied
by a man of the name of I.ylc, from
Kugcne. Several years ago Kyle's
brother, aUo living at Kugcuc, was
accustomed to buy gold nuggets
from three Indians that came to
town regularly each fall to make
their sales to I.yle. 'I hese sales
ranged from $70 to $So each year.
I.yle frequently requested the In
dians to take him t ithe place where
they ptocurcd the nuggets, but
they always promised to do so,
"next year, when snow is gone."
Finally I.yle asked them to bring
him a sarnple of the rock, which
they did. I.ylc had it assayed and
it showed n value of 200 of gold
per ton. That naturally fired Kyle
with a greater determination than
ever to locate their buiiau; t, nud be
giew more and more persistent iu
his request of the Indians to show
lum their secret tieasuic house.
Rut the Indians, either through in
difference or their natural cttuniiig,
ahvavs postponed the trip "until
next ear, when snow is gone."
Fnally two of the Indians died nud
the thiul censed his visits to I.ylc;
and the secret they possessed, ami
which I.yle was so anxious to learn,
remains a profound secret to this
When Messrs. Mackintosh and
I.yle discovered this tenitory of
mineral rock this Mimmcr, I.yle
was nt once convinced that they
had solved the Indians' secret and
believed that somewhere iu thru, lo
cality would 1 found a mine of
great wealth. And such may b

quest nuiv prove to be but the vain
search for the pot of gold at the
rainbow's end. Mr. Mackintosh
states that he and I.ylc will prob

hidden treasure next summer.

YOUNG BOY BADLY INJURGD

Is the National Reclamation Serv
ice about to undertake a' large irri
gation project in Crook county?
There arc many indications that
such may be the cac. II. J. Doo
little, an engineer in the Reclama
tion Service, was in Madras Irotn
Saturday until Monday afternoon
of last week, finishing up his work
in connection with the investigation
which the Reclamation Service has
been conducting in this county. It
is understood that the Reclamation
Service is looking for a good-sized
irrigation project to take up, in this
state, and that the present investi
gation is for the purpose of gather
ing data in this section with that
end in view.
According to the Pioneer, a con
tour line was run by Mr. Doohttl
and his assistants from I'rinev
to Madras for the purpose merely
01 ascertaining mc relative eleva
tion of the country lying between,
and at the same time, doubtless,
much other information was gath
ered by him. A mouth or more
ago Mr. Doolittle made a trip down
the Matoles and on down the Des
chutes to Sherars Hridge, and a bo
spent some lime in this immediate
locality, gathering data and infor
mation in connection with the in
vestigation under way. He went
from this place to Priucville and
continued his work in that locality.
It is generally understood that if
irrigation u ever undertaken iu
that section, the water supnly will
come from storage reservoirs on
upper Crooked river, where the
llood waters of winter and spring
will be stored iu large reservoirs
and let out through the channel of
the river as they arc required The
water would be takeu out ot the
river at a point near Priueville, and
following the general course of
Crooked river, lie brought around
Juuiper Rutte into the vicinity of
Madras, supplying water for irri
gation to the several hundred thou
sand acres of irrigable laud which
could be reached by a distributive
system, from the main canal.
Mr. Doolittle would give out no
information regarding the probabil
ity of the government taking hold
of this work, or even as to the re
sult of his investigation, whether
the outlook was favorable or other
wise. He explained that it was
lontrary to the policy of the service
to give out any information of this
kind, and that he was on his way
to Portland to report to the chief of
his department. His work in Crook
county was purely of a preliminary
uature and for the purpose of gath
ering data as to the general lay of
the land and the supply nud avail
ibility of water, etc. Upon such
information as has been gathered
by him and his assistants, a report
to the Reclamation Service will be
bused, and should it be favorable,
further nud more comprehensive
investigation will doubtlos be un
dertaken nt once.

swung twice completely over the

elbow, the bones being split and
badly shattered. The arm is now
in a very serious condition, al
though Dr. Snook thinks he wi'.l

The accident occurred rt 6 o -clock
in the evening, just as Mr.
Watcrhousc was preparing to shut
down. There was only 20 pounds
of steam on, to which fact the little-
fellow owes his life, as with full
power on his body would havcbcT

force to dismember it. As it was,
there was just sufficient steam oti
to run the pump, and the addition
al weight of the boy's body stopped
the engine after two revolutions of
the belt. When the engine stopped
Mr. Watcrhousc hurried into the
mill to discover the cause, and
found Ray with both arms closet
pinned to the shaft. The right arra
was held lengthwise of the shaft
and no bones were broken, but the
left arm had been twisted over the
shaft and broken in three places.
