J.counitl 0. Tillery, SWl:'"H
with George llobbs m a t:utiui;
contract on (lie 1M,ij ntlc rutu-li
nbout six miles cnit iff Henri, was
kicked in the forehead Tuc(lny
morning nt t v o'clock, and ii now
lying in o very critical condition.
The skull was badly frncturcd, nnd
jiircvs of the bone woe imbedded
ju the brain. Dr. Coc, who wits
.Ciller1 to nttend the bndly wounded
ninii, says that if inflammation ikes
not Kt in, he may live, but chance
for his recovery arc doubtful.
During the night the three turn,
Ceo. Hobbs. Dick VanrievCrt mid
Mr. Tillery, were uoiklng over n
.sick hntae. Itnch of litem had
been walking it mound to Rive it
cxcKise, nnd nvcrnl times it had

careful, but Tillery ccncri to pay
no intention pud wan somewhat
cureless. I!junly he took thchor.v:
nnd walked it nround behind 11
pea 1 by haystack. In a few mo
menu the other men heard n pe
culiar noise nnd rushing around the
stack they found Tillery lying on
his back, with the wound in hid
forehead and with blood spurting
from it, Mis lantern was .sitting
ucurby, nnd n small switch was ly
lug on the ground. It Is surmised
that as he reached for the switch,
the horse kicked him in the henri.
IilTorti were at once tuatlc to se
cure n doctor, but Dr. Coc was nt

engaged. However, Dr. Coc re

The doctor found that the toe cork
had struck Tillery dirtctly over the
right eye, smashing the skull nt the
point of contact nuri indicting a
fracture of the skull front the cor
ner of the left eye upward and
across the forhcad over close to the
right temple. Dr. Coc removed 25

ity After cntnplcting his investi
gations, Mr. Pollnrri left Sunday
morning for Portland, where he
will continue his work in the exam
ination of records of the Columbia
Southern Irrigating Company to
lie found at that place. When ap
proached by n Dullctiu rcortcr,
.Mr. Pollard at first stated thut he
really hail nothing to give out that
would interest the cop!e of this
section, hut later he said:
"The object of my visit at the
present time is to make nn exami
nation of the physical status dud of
the general condition of each of the
three Carey Act projects in this
scciion--that of the Deschutes Irri
gation & Power Ccmpanv, of the
Deschutes Irrigation & Reclama
tion Company (the Swalley canal),
and of the Columbia Southern Irri
gating Company "
"You find the local company's
project, that of the Deschutes Irri
gation it Power Company, in good
condition, do you not?" he was
"Yes, and my report regarding
that company will be favorable. I
find that its canals arc well con
structed, nnd the company is ap
parently delivering water to the
new scalers as fast ns It is needed,
its canals and laterals covering
quite a large territory. Yes, my
report wilt ix lavarauie us tar as

Pollard, that you have been sent in
to make this investigation prepara
tory to the Department bringing
suit against the Columbia Southern
company. Is that report correct : .
(,1 can not say as to that," Mr.
Pollard replied. "It is epiite cer
tain, however, that if the Depart
ment contemplates such action, suit
will not be brought by the IXrpart
merit until after the suit instituted
by the State of fjregon, and which
is now pending in the courts, has
"What will bp thr nature of your
retwrt regarding the Columbia

"I cap not tell nt present. I
find that records and information
whiclt, I expected to secure at Laid
law, arc held (n Portland, and I
will have tq examine those records
before I will be. 3W0 to make a com

"There is po good reason, is
there, Mr. VUafd, why tlicColuni'
bia Southern project should not
prove n successful one?"
"Ifonc, whatever. It has Jxrcn
demonstrated by accurate surveys
that there arc natural reservoir
sites lying above the project, where
rcscrvojrs could be built at a reas
onable expense which, used in con
nection with the summer flow of
Tiimcllo creek, would hold enough
water to reclaim the entire project.
There is no reason why that pro
ject should not prove successful if
)i is property iianuicu.
"Docs the Reclamation Service
contemplate taking over the Colum
bia Southern project and linistnng
it, as has been rumored?"
"I know nothing, whatever.
about that," Mr. Pollard replied.
While Mr. Pollard was rcticicnt
in regard to the probable action of
the Department of the Interior in
bringing suit against the Columbia
Southern company, yet it is gener
ally believed, from the nature of
his investigations while her that
the Department may possibly be
considering such action. He made
careful inquiry as to the local stand
ing of the various Carey projects,
and was anxious to learn how local
people felt in regard to the various
companies. While Mr. Pollard
paid more or less attention to the
D I. & P. Co. nnd the Swalley
system, most of his time was taken
in investigating the Columbia

lias demonstrated now cheaply a
few head of sheep can be raised on
each farm. He has a small dock
bn his place, nnd says that they
have not cost him n cent for feed
this year from about April 1 to
Dec. t. The sheep were allowed
to range in the vicinity of the farm,
and they secured their living from
the bunch grass and the tender
sage. Mr. Hall states that they
brousc quite n little on the tender
shoots of certain varieties of sage
brush. The sheep came through
the summer in flue shape, are real
fat and in prime condition to
Hence, those sheep will cost Mr.
Hall nothing except the expendi
ture necessary to feed them through
the winter, which will be a small
item especially small if the winter
remains ns open as it has so far.
The returns flam the .sheen in in
crease of lambs, in mutton and in
wool, is therefore almost a clear
gain. It would have been a clear
gain if Mr. Hall had sold them
The Bulletin mentions Mr. Hall's
experience simply to show how
cheaply ccituiu classcn of stock can
be raised in tills section. Many
farmers claim that n sheep is one
of the most profitable animals that
can be raised on a farm. This cer
tainly is the case ia the llcud coun
try, where they need so little at
tention nud where thb cost of keep
ing is so small.
