COR years sheep raising has been oue of the leading industries of Crook county, and it will coa-
tinuc as such lor many years to come. Prom 2,500,000 to 3.000,000 pounds of wool arc mar
keted each year as a rcntilt of this industry in Crook county, and many thousand head of sheep are
sold annually. The sum of money this industry brings into the county is a handsome amount, and
not n few men in Crook county have made their fortune by raising sheep. Heretofore the industry
has been confined almost exclusively to range sheep pastured on the open range, but as the country
develops and irrigation becomes the order of (he day, large numbers of high grade bheep will be
raised on the numerous small farms. Those who have already tried it in this vicinity claim there is
n fine profit in a few sheep on the farm. One farmer, with much experience, claims that from $3,000
to 5,000 profit can be cleared each year from a tooacrc farm stocked with sheep. He has made
good to that amount for several years. Thus it is assured that the raising of sheep will Jong be an
important industry in Crook county.

N. Thomas, who oicratcd in

The transaction which resulted
in his arrest was an attempt to
fleece Jacob Kasscr of Cherry Creek
out of ft too. He represented to
Kasscr that he was investigating
government land entries, and pre
tending to liuvc discovered irregu
larities, demanded ft too as the
price of his hilcncc. He was given
a check for the qtnount, but Kasscr
stopped payment on the check and
had Thomas arrested. He also se
cured checks from n Paulina ranch
er on a similar pretext, but pay
ment of these was also stopped.
Thomas came to this county as
an insurance solicitor and claims
that he was approached by a num
ber of people who thought that he
was a special agent, and that this
suggested the plan of grafting

Madras Wants $3,000 School Mouse.
The directors of the Madras
school district have posted notices
calling for a school election on
Saturday, May 1, to vote upon the
question of issuing 3,000 bonds

TO ADJUDICATE WATER
RIGHTS IN CROOK
SUte Water Board Will Seen Take Up
Adjudication of Claims ts Water
from Squaw and TumeHe
Creeka-A Wle Law.
Dispatches from Salem report
that the state water board will take
up, at any early date, the adjudica
tion of water riglrts on Squaw
creek and also on Tumello creek.
This will be the first work done in
Crook county by the water board
under the new water law passed by
the recent legislature.
During the past vcar or two
there has been mote or less trouble
in regard to the water rights on
Squaw creek. It has been reported
that it few men taking water from
the creek have built a canal so large
that it carries an amount or water
greatly in excess of what they can
use on their lands. They have per
sisted in diverting water to the full
capacity of the caual, and have let
the surplus run to waste and form
a pond out on the desert. This
worked a hardship on settlers lower
down ou the cieck whose supply of
water whs thus depleted. Of course
the men who arc causing the
trouble can not legally hold more
water than they put to beneficial
use. The new water board will
htralghteu out the tanele, will de
cide the amount and priority of the
various water rights, and then the
water master whom they put in
charge of thut stream will see that
no one diverts more water than
they are justly entitled to. In this
one instance it is easy to see what
gteat benefits will be derived from
the new water law.
Another case in point is that con
cerning water rights on Tumello
creek, Much complaint was heard
in Bend last summer over a scarcity
of water along this stream. During
the irrigation season, the Columbia

the biggest and best celebration ever
"pulled off" in Central Oregon.
As announced ia The Bulktia
last week, a bmss meetiag was
called last Thursday evening to
discuss the question of celebrating.
The meeting was called to order by
Mayor Davidson, with J. K. Saw
hill, secretary. After a short dis
cussion in which evervone was
heartily in favor of celebrating, it
was decided to celebrate in Bead
this year oa Saturday, tfee 3rd, in
asmuch as the Fourth cones oa
Sunday. It was also the unani
mous opinion of those present, that
auother of those unique troat barbe
cues should form one of the chief
attractions of the day.
Two committees were fiaally ap
pointed, one on finance, consisting
of J. H. Weaandy, Thos. TripkU
and A. M. Lara; the other oa pro
gram and geaeral arrangements,
consisting of M. J. Kellcy, Hagh
O'Kancaad E. A. Sather. The
finance committee was attracted
to solicit sabscriptloas; the cow
aittee oa general arraageaaeats was
instructed to draw up a suggestive
program with the probable expense
therefor; both committees to report
at a second meeting to be held oa
the following Monday.
In line with this arrangement.
another mass meeting was held Iat
Monday evening. The finance
committee reported good progress
and that everyone approac'hed had
responded liberally. White the
committee had Hot finished its
work, yet a sufficient sum had been
pledged to assure a geed celebra
tion. The committee oa geaeral
arrangements reported a draft of a
program the expense of which
would easily come within the sunt
pledged. With the expense end of
the affair thus assured, the finance
committee was Instructed to con
tinue its work and raise as large u
sum as possible. Another and per
manent committee was appointed
to take full charge of the celebra
tion. This committee will ap
point all sub-commlttes and will
have general supervision of all mat
ters pertaining to the Fourth. The
committee is composed of K. A.
Sather, J. H. Weaandy, Tmoh.
