SUGAR BEETS have made an excellent showing in the Bend country. A sample of beets grown
here was sent to the State Agriculture College at Corvallis for analysis, the analysis resulting
os follow' Specific of juice, 1 0851; per cent solids in juice, 20 4, per cent sugar in juice, 18.7; pur
ity cr cent, 91.6. 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.
Very Confident Work Will Commence
Soon on Central Oregon Line, Saya
Roscoe Howard, General Man
ager of D. I. & P. Co.
Reports have been persistently
circulated in Bend this week to the
effect that Harriman had tele
graphed orders to Mr. O'Hricn to
begin construction of the railroad
into Central Oregon just as soon ns
the weather would permit, the re
port stating that the news had been
forwarded from Portland to the
local D. 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. Thayer says that the rub-

rabbits having been killed. Over

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.

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

Trespassed on National Forest
and Was Arrested.
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.
