All Should Help.
At Inst Bend is embarked upon a
campaign of publicity. It is high
lime, for never before iu our history
has the future he'd more brilliant
promise, never before has more un
iversal attention been centered up
on our country, and never before
has the necessity for organized ad
vertising of our opportunities been
more pronounced, nor the benefits
procurable from publicity greater.
We arc on the verge of the great
est railroad development Oregon has
ever witnessed. The entire North
west, and the home and investment
seeking clement throughout the
country, are vastly interested in
Central Oregon. The Bend Board
of Trade will do its utmost to tell
this interested public exactly what
the Bend country has to offer.
There will be, and need be, no ex
aggeration in the information it
sends forth. The bare facts of
Bend's resources, opportunities and
future, once understood, are all that
is necessary. Once the inquirer
truly comprehends what we have to
offer, he will comply with the
Board's slogan, and "Come to
The Bulletin is heartily in sympa
thy with the work the Board of
Trade is undertaking. Also, it feel?
that the methods being pursued are
of the best, and urges that Bend,
individually and collectively, fall
into line and BOOST!
It's now or never. Let's all help
the Bend Board of Trade.
An Important Opening.
The Portland Union Stock Yards
will be open for business on Sep
tember 15 The opening of these
yards is an epoch in the livestock
industry of the Pacific Northwest.
The creation of a place of barter
and sale where there is eicry day
in the year, an active demand for
aii 01 me livestock ottered, means
much to the farmers of this section.
1 ne nearest market 01 tne class is
at Denver. The establishment of
livestock markets such as afforded
by the Portland Union Stock Yards
has added millions of dollars to the
value of the livestock tributary to
Chicago, Kansas City, Omaha, St.
Joseph, St. Louis, Fort Worth and
Denver, and history will repeat it
self at Portland.
Livestock sells every business day
of the year and the cash that is
paid out to the farmers filters
through every channel of the coun
try's commerce. There is no better
way to get grain to market than in
the hide of a meat animal a meth
od of marketing that has made the
farmers of the middle states rich
and now that there will be a de
mand for the animals the farmers
and stockmen of this section will
doubtless raise and properly feed
enough livestock to meet the rapidly
The Bulletin has watched the
building of this great plant at Port
land with much interest, well
knowing that it would prove of
ranch value to the livestock indus
try of the Bend country. The rais
ing of livestock has been the lead
lug industry here for many years,
and always will play an important
part in the business of this section.
With the Deschutes railroads com
pleted, this section will have direct
connection with the Union Stock
Yards and packing plant at Port
land. It means dollars and cents
and prosperity for the farmers of
the Bend country.

Desert, The Bulletin gives below
the chief features of the law which
allows an cntrymnu to tile on 330
acres, most of The laud referred to
being filed upon under this act
The clipping appended was taken
front the Pacific Monthly.
"Under the terms of the Momlcll dry
fnrniitiR low, passed at the last session of
Congress, the 'homesteader' l allowed
to lake JJO acres ot land under certain
restrictions, first, the laud must hcin
the slates or territories of Oregon, Wash
ington, Utah, Wyoming, New Mexico,
Nevada, Aritona, Colorado or Montana.
Further, the land must have been deslg
natal as non-lrrigablc. In order to
make the law operative at once, answer
ing the demands of the many in the
West who wished to take advantage of
its provisions In the Wct. Secretary
uallincer has recently designated over
175,000,000 acres of Western land open
to settlement under the provisions of
thU new law, le has designated about
three and a half million acres as belli?
open in Washington, seven millions each
iu Oregon and Utah, nine millions in
Wyoming, fourteen lu New Mexico,
nineteen In Montana, twenty in Colo
rado, twenty-six in Arirona and forty
nine million acres in Nevada. Doubt
less these areas will be added to from
time to time as the line o! settlement
pushes up to tru limits fixed.
"It will tie remembered that according
to the provisions of the Mondell law,
the landsecker must be a resident of the
state In which the land is located. Also
he mast live continuously on the land as
designated in th?well known homestead
law. It is further provided that one
eighth ot the land selected must be culti
vated by the second year, and that one
fourth of the whole tract must be con
tinuously cultivated the third year. The
land must be in a compact body, and it
is allowed that those who have previous
ly filed on the regulation Ida acres may
increase their holdings by the addition
of land, bringing the total up to not
more than 3 acres."
A Good Position
can be had by ambitious young
men and ladies in the field of
"Wireless" or Reilway telegraphy.
Since the 8-hour law became el-
fective, and since the Wireless com
panies are establishing stations
throughout the country there is a
great shortage of 'telegraphers.
Positions pay beginners from $70
to $90 per month, with good chance
for advancement. The National
Telegraph Institute of Portland,
Ore., operates six official iqstitutes
in America, under supervision of
R, R. and Wireless Officials and
places all graduates into positions.
