MR. RICHARDSON'S VISIT.
Tonight tie people of Uend will
have an opportunity to hear one of
Ihe most interesting speaker in the
state talk upon a topic of vital Inv
portto Bend publicity. Not onl)
is Mr. Richard.-on a speaker or in
terest but n acknowledged, author
ity on state and town advertising.
Thi is Mr. Richardson's first vWt
to Central OrcKon and Bend. He
is here for the triple purpose of
arousing a popular understanding
or the extraordinary opportunities
now confronting this region, orsug
gcstlng from his broad experience
means and methods of utilising to
the best advantage these opportun
ities while they are ripe, and third,
ly, to familiarize himself with Ccn
tral Oregon, that hereafter this rt
gion way receive its due share of
intelligent Oregon "boosting."
At last night's banquet Mr Rich
nrdson ws welcomed to Bend in
fitting manner. Today he has
beea ihowa somewhat' of Bend, its
possibilities and the adjacent coun

proverbially optimistic Tonight

The "land parties in the Willam
ette Valley" evidently have gone to
some trouble to misrepresent Cen
tral Oregoa conditions. One dis
trict's "knocking" of another is so
prevalent as scarcely to merit atten
tioa, yet for the benefit of the cast
ers inquirer and the misrepresent
fag webfeoter, these statements may
serve ft parpose. The Deschutes
Valley varies in altitude from one
to 5,000 feet, the Utter figure really
including no territory which prop
erly caa be reckoned part of the
valley. Most emphatically Central
Oregon is not a windy country;
with the exception of a few spring
wind storms it is notably free from
this aanoyaent. Equally empbat

The inaccurate Willamette dwell

the Cascades in his life, or it may be
that at the lime of his writing the
proverbial Willamette rain or the
exhaustion of navigating through
constant mud had left htm so de
