The assistant chemist, Prof. Kdwards, In reporting on the analysis, said: "This shows an excellent beet.. In one year wc examined 216 samples with an average of 15.24 per cent sugar in juice, and purity 84 36 per cent. The beets arc of a good size for sugar producing, and of ou excellent shape." Prof. KniMily reported: "The purity and per cent of sugar in the samples arc very promising, as they stnnd high." Eighteen and seven-tenths per cent of sugar, and purity 91.6 per cent is a good showing. The standard of excellence in sugar beets is 16 to 18 per cent and purity 85 per cent. The per cent of sugar is much above the average and the purity, 91.6 per cent. Is unusually high as an analysis of 90 per cent is exceedingly rare. THERE IS NOTHING NEW IN RAILROAD NEWS Very Confident Work Will Commence Soon on Central Oregon Line, Saya Roscoe Howard, General Man ager of D. I. & P. Co.

I. & P. Co. office. The Bulletin interviewed Mr. Howard, general manuger of the company, In regard to this icport and Mr. Howard said: "I have nothing new in the Hup of railroad news, and there is nothing to the report iusofar as it claims to impart any new information. However, ns I have previously said .since Mr. O'Hricn returned from his trip to New York I am very confident that he bas already received definite orders to build into Central Oregon, aud that the route chosen is up the Deschutes. While there has been nothlug reported during the past week, yet I have reasons that make me confident actual construction will soou be commenced." Another Successful Rabbit Drive. A. D.

V ITEMS 0I: UNUSUAL INTEREST Homesteader Win Contests. Waller Wing of Silver Lake was in Bend the first of the week con sulting Atty. C. S. Benson in re gard to n contest case brought against his homestead claim by the forest service. The homestead is in the f.akcvicw land office dis trict, and when the contest was filed some time ago Wing decided not to fight it, as there has been for some time past n well founded belief among homesteaders in that district that timber claimants were being favored in preference to homestead crs, in content cases where the laud involved was in the timber, as in Wing's casr. Recently, however, two cases of this kind, those of E. O. Check and Peter Peterson of Silver Lake, after being decided un favorably by the register at the Lakeview land office, were appealed to the Secretary of the Interior, who reversed the Lnkcview officials, As a result homesteaders in that district have taken new hope, und many nre appealing their cases with the expectation of finally wtauing out. Mr. Whig stated that the at torneys of Lakeview and Klamath Falls urc seemingly standing in with the timber men, as they al most invariably fail to give a timber- homesteuder rlient nny eucour ugeurl'tit, when consulted. Atty. Ucusou handled the c.ises of Check und Peterson, which were decided iu their favor by the Secretary of the Interior. Planning "Ulg Doln'."

Diphtheria Reports Exaggerated. Dreadful reports are current in outside papers of the diphtheria scourge in Lnkeview. There is no occasion for such misrepresentation. Three children only have died. One died of mem braneous ctoup or possibly diph theria, the other two of pneumonia. There were no doctors here, Dr. Hall being down with rheumatic fever, and Drs. Daly and Smith out of town, so the authorities de cided to take matters into hand aud quarantined the town. Iu the emergency Dr. Amsdeu, who had not been practicing for some time, stepied into the breach and suc cessfully ministered to the sick, The quarantine was removed Saturday, and since then the schools and nil public places have oceu open.

PAULINA STOCKMAN PAYS AN $80 FINE Trespassed on National Forest and Was Arrested. 4 HE KNOWS BETTER NOW Drove Cat tie Through Reserve With out a Permit and Feel Die Hard Fktof Uncle Sam Other Items of General Interest. T. D. Combs of Paulina recently paid f&o in the federal court at Portland for trespass upon the for est reserve. Combs is a cattleman and refused to obey the rules laid down by the forest officials. Last summer he was arrested by the forestry officers for ranging his Mock without permission within the confines of the Deschutes forest reserve, and wo fined co for the offense, which he paid under pro test, a monm or so later the cat tleman drove about 20 head of his stock through the reserve without permission, aud was again obliged to feel the iron hand of Uncle Sam in the shape of a criminal com plaint. Although the privilege of driving stock through forest re serves costs but a few cents a head, amounting in Combs' case to not more than $7, he scorned the right of the government to collect the toll, and in consequence bas been forced to submit to various expenses in connection with his declar ation of independence aggregating fully $200, as he has had to make two trips to Portland from his Paulina home to face the charges before him, besides engaging an attorney and finally submitting to the payment of damages as indi cated. Shorter Items of Interest. During 1908 Lake county spent J r 2,562.06 in running the county government. A large gray six-year-old Per cheron stallion has been bought by Joseph Lister of Prineville.

Superintendent Covey, oi the Warmspriug reservation, says he believes that many quail ou the reservation perished during the se vere cold spell of last mouth.
