S SETTLING FAST
HAMPTON COUNTRY DRAWS
Saxebrtnh Lands to Settthcast Being
Pteweti aJ Seeded Want Wall
Service and School Now.
The Hampton Butte country is
developing remarkably, nccorditiR
to V. Schrader, one of the pioneer
homesteaders of Hampton Vallev,
who drove iu to Bend Monday with
a four-horse team to get wheat and
rye seed, with which he will plant
40 acres tlm fall.
In Hanpton Valley alone there
are row 49 bouses and tents. Many
m.iles'-tfr fence have been built,
several hundred acres plowed and
many more cleared, and dozsns ol
wells dug, all reaching good water
at slight depths. Indeed, Mr
Schradcr says everything is highly
premising, that new families are
tneviag oti to their claims each
week, and that thousands of acres
as good as any now occupied re
main to be taken up under the 320
acre homestead act.
The new settlers are working
hard net only to tame the raw laud
but to build up a community. Two
petitions have been signed by prac
tically every resident in the valley,
one for the establishment of a
school and the second for a post
office. In June there were 26 chil
dren of school age in the valley.
The school, says Mr. Schrader, is
The settlers desire that the new
Frineville-Fife mail route, which
has been in existence but a tew
weeks, be operated from Prineville
to Fife, thence to Hampton and
thence back to Prineville via Held,
instead of doubling back on the
.Priaeville-Fife route as now. The
prottosed change would make the
weekly mail trip but two miles
Mr. Schrader, who is a Bend en
thusiast, was particularly anxious
that Bend people understand the
opportunities they are losinvr.
"Bend is but a very few miles
farther from us than is Prineville,"
said Mr. Schiader. "Coming this
way there are absolutely no hill
while the Prineville road is excess
Ivcly hilly. But Bend people don't
seem to care, while Prineville is
working hard to get assd keep the
fast increasing trade of the Hamp
fea country. A very little money
could put the Bend road into splen
did shape, and a very little trouble
cetiid bring Bead a lot of trade
Of course when the railroad gets to
Bead all of our country will trade
here, and I suppose the mail will
go froei here. And the building 01
the east-and-west line will renter
all of the new country on Bend
Nevertheless, Bend is lettini: a lot
of money get away by being asleep
Mr. Schrader came to this
country from Davenport Wash
His daughter, Emily, will come in
to Bend to attend high school this
ICE CAVES DISCOVERED
Also a Commodious Bear's Den In
Remote Lava Bed.
Fred Hughie George and Claude
Vandevcrt, who were out with
Ranger Hurd fighting fire west
of Spring river, about two weeks
ago discovered some interesting
caves. Two of them were ice caves
aad one a spacious bear's den bear
ing evidences of use as winter
quarters; The) did not have the
tie or facilities for makine full
explorations but exoect to make
further examination later. These I
caves are about 12 miles due west
of the Vandevert ranch on Little
River, in an infrequented locality
From one of the caves ice was car
ried tn Vandevert's and used in
making ice cream for the party.
Fred Hugie, a settler who was
assisting the rangers in fighting fire,
was the first man into these caves
and claims the right .to have them
bear his name. Ranger Hurd is
said to desire to attach bis pome to
them because they are within the
territory over which lie watches
and be must make official report ol
the discovery. The Fore.t Sevice
will doubtless give tliwutwicae
name for the purpose ol
rapid spread nud growth making it
to nicunce to agriculture.
Iir Oregon, as iu many other
stales, there is a law requiring
counties la remove it from roads
ami individuals to destroy it if
found in their fields To show
thbse unfamiliar with it the exact
nature of the plant samples of the
thistle arc being displayed in sev
eral of the realty ofiires. It is be
lieved that a vety brief effort could
entirely eradicate the weed and
prevent its spread from the slight
start it already has.
