BOTH to those familiar with the country anil to strangers who have an indistinct idea of Central Oregon topography, the map herewith published
for the first time will be not only of considerable interest but will have an uutmie value as being the only carefully prepared and accurate map.
picture ever made of this region. The work is the result of a careful compilation of the available data, in which all existing maps obtainable
were employed and, reference made to the railroad maps insofar as possible. The map was drawn for, and under the direction of, Frank Robertson,
president of the Bend Townsite Company. While it of course is not free from many minor inaccuracies unavoidable in such a treatment of a vast terri
tory upon a small scale, it can, on the whole, be trusted to furnish an accurate general idea of the Deschutes Valley and its relation to the rest of Oregon.
While t,he map will appear in several forms and si7.es, the larger ones to be used for display purposes, the size here reproduced is especially in
tended tor use on the back of letterheads. For this purpose The Bulletin will have possession of the plate, It will be printed on stationery at the rate
of $3.50 a thousand sheets', The Bulletin being obliged to pay a portion of this amount in royalty for the use of the plate.
Just south of neinl the Deschutes
has a number of great falls, otTering

at mile 165 of the Oregon Trunk
Railwaythat diitancc from the
Columbia, and practically midway
belwcen Celilo and Klamath Falls.
For the benefit of those unfamll
tar with the territory a brief outline
of its characteristics may be in order.
West of Bend to the summit of
the Cascade Mountains, about 30
miles distant, is a solid belt of yel
low pine timber credited with being
the largest and mmt valuable stand
of its kind left in the Northwest.
At Bead this timber first comes in
contact with the Deschutes River.
Southward, fn a Mrip averaging
ptrhaps 50 miles wide easterly from
tbe mountains, the timber belt ex
tends practically to California for
at least 175 miles. A large body of
pine extends a short distance south
easterly from Bend over tbe flanks
of the Paulina Mountains.
To the east of Bend is the 300,000
acre Carey Act irrigation segrega
tion of the Deschutes Irrigation &
country under the segregation of
the Columbia Southern Co. Kst
of Bend, in the vicinity of Powell
Buttes (wrongly spelled 'Pau

very finest "dry farming" districts
in the west. Surrounding Redmond,

about La Pine, is another irrigation
enterprise, juu getting into opera
operation, of the Deschutes Laud
Co. Surrounding Laidluw, west of
tbe Deschutes and 7 miles distant
from Bend, is a splendid Irrigated

und "dry" country, white
the Agency Plains and Haystack
teiritorits around Madras, are
noted for their dry farming
Practically speaking, everything
north and cast of Bend, when not
irrigated, is "dry farming" coun
try. To the southeast, in the tri
angle formed by the doited railroad
lines and beyond, is what well has
been styled "the greatest free-land
opening for the homeseeker left in
the West." In that region arc to
be found several hundred thousand
acres of rolling sagebrush and
buncb-grass land, and broad valleys
with rich, deep soil and water,
which can be taken up uuder the
