Upper Deschutes Raachers Have Fear
ful Experience whh a CJrlzzly.
Mkadows, Or., Dec 26. Editor
Bead Bulletin, Bend, Or. Dear
Sir: Here is an account of a very
extraordinary occurrence, which
took place on the John Usher ranch
in tbe upper Deschutes country.
Ooe day not long ago Usher went
out to tbe barn on some errand and
was somewkat shocked to find an
eaoraous grizzly bear lying curled
up ia tbe manger sound asleep. To
say that Usher was frightened
would be putting it altogether too
mildly. From tbe way be per
formed when he reached the cabin
a few steps dUtant, where David
11111 ana naroia t'aimer were
hugging the stove and enjoying
perfect quiet, one would think he
had experienced something like a
Kansas tornado or had narrowly es
caped a maelstrom.
After a hurried consultation it
was decided that they should at
tack tbe monster on tbe right and
left flank and from tbe rear. So
Uther equipped hlm&elf with a 35-30
Winchester, Palmer with a 38 ipedal
Colt's revolver, and Hill with a 13 gauge
(Ingle barrel .botKun.
At a given signal a terrific volley was
poured into tbe unsuspecting bear. With
tbe roar of an enraged demon, bruin
bounded from tbe manger and made for
tbe open door, where Usher's old dog,
being attracted by tbe gun foe, met tbe
ferocious animal and after one glance
changed his color from coal black to iron
gray. As the brute pasted through tbe
door be was within a few feet of Hill
who declares the bear was branded and
earmarked. Evidently there bad been
SJiue dUpute over tbe ownership of the
animal, however, for he lore W, P. Van
devert'a brsnd and C. D. Allen's ear
mark. Another fact worthy of note was
tlmt ie bear was toothless except for
oue huge tusk, and it was au enormous
onet-a gigantic one. Ob, it was wonder
ful: you would hardly believe it.
The bear swiftly made its way to the
river and bounded upon a log which lay
in the edge of the water, and the jar be
ing so great caued the log to roll over
and float away with the current.
Hut here bruin bad another narrow es
cape for Mr. A. D. Lewis, who lives but
a short distance from the Usher ranch,
bear in ir the yelling and shooting,
thought someone was drowning and
came with 75 feet of rope which did
service as a clothesline at home made n
slip-noose and began to out tbe same at
tbe wrathful bear. Ilniin smntlng dan
ger extreme, broke a large limb from
the log and, using same for a paddle,
proceeded to reach a safe distance front
Mr. Lewis, who by the way is no slouch
with the rope.
Mr, M. J. Main, a resident of the up
per river, happened to be crossing the
new bridge at Spring river, saw the bear
and having no gun with him, gave c haw
on land until be came to a canoe down
near Mr. Atkinson's place and, taking an
ax which he had with him, paddled out
and attacked bruin, but at the first
stroke from the stnnly blacksmith tbe
handle flew out and the ax flew iu ami
he never saw ax nor handle again.
Dear Editor: If you ahould wonder
why we didn't kill the bear, we with to
say that the weather here was so cold
that our bullets and shot were all frozen
and bad na effect on the monster.
John W. Usiirr.
II. R. Palmer.
P. S. Mr. David Hill is so overcome
by the exciting experience that he It un
able to attach bis respectful signature to
this report, and is now under the care of
Dr. Harold Palmer at his new log hos
pital. Mr. A. D. Lewis is on tbe other
side of the river and we have no pen
long enough to reach across.

Will Use LanJplastcr.
The farmers of the Lntdlaw sec
tion were so well pleased with the
results of the use of lahdplastcr on
their land last year, that they arc
determined to use it much more ex
tensively next season. Yesterday
Jas. R. Benbaru was in Ik ml to see
if arrangements rould be made with
C. "H. Hrickson whereby he would
manufacture a supply from his
gypsum dciwsits at Hear Creek, but
Mr. Ilenham reported that no defi
nite arrangements could tie made.
Failing to secure a supply from
the Bear Creek mines, the farmers
have about decided to order 30 tons
from a manufacturer in the Valley,
getting quite a liberal reduction in
the price by taking that amount
Those interested have called a
meeting of farmers to be held at
Laidlaw on Saturday, January 8,
and are anxious that every farmer,
who may wish to give lundplaster
a trial, shall Ik present. Nearly
but not quite all of the 30 tons has
been subscribed for, and it is de
sired that the full 30 tons may be
sold Jn order to get the reduction
in price. .
Remember the date and attend
the meeting if you are interested.
