We have pictures and lotiR de
acrlptions of the "smudging" of
orchards in famous fruit districts, of
the spraying and the mulching and
special protections for trees and
vines and plants, from sunny Mex
ico to snowy Canada. Notwith
standiog which the beat of them
suffer occasional failures from frost
or drouth or insect pests. It was
only a few years ago that the Flor
ida orange industry was almost
totally destroyed by an unseason
able frcerc. It has hardly yet re
covered. But Florida is still a fine
orange country. California suffers
reverses every year in some of its
noted fruit sections.
Those who are skeptical of the
agricultural value of Central and
Eastern thegon its power to pro
duce, for example, apples, or toma
toes or alfalfa should think of
these things. They see here none
of the evidences of special care
which is bestowed upon such crops
in regions famous for their produc
tion. Why should they expect
here without special effort such re
suits as are obtained elsewhere
only after the expenditure of
money, time and careful study of
the peculiarities of the locality?
Such unthiuking, offhand con
drmnation means nothing but
poor and unfajr judgment on the
part of those who jump to such
hasty conclusions. It is unfair to
expect of a raw, new section that
perfection which is scarcely ut
taiucd, after long study and cul
ture, in old and well-developed ter
ritory. The natural peculiarities of the
country must be studied and hu
mored here as elsewhere. Then
we have the right to expect results
Such success as come without sjs
tematic, intelligent effort simpl
prove that nature is unusually
controlled before material damage
had been done.
The Bulletin has for distribution
an interesting and valuable report
of ForcnMcr Ileal on the climate of
the Deschutes Valley. It is worth
while to huve accurate information
on this subject. This official state

Such roafl would be of immense ad
vaatage to Eugene. It would mean
that all the travel from tbe interior of
Oregon Into the Willamette valley even
a far aa Portland, would come through
Eugene. By all laeam, let the couutv
court make any reasonable agreement
with tbe county court of Crook county
and let this trans-Cascade highway be
opened to public travel.
Such is an editorial extract (torn

The proposed road would be of
vast value to Bend. One result of
its completion would be that all the
automobile and tourist traffic from
Willamette and Washington points
which now comes into Central Ore

Sbaaiko would enter over the new
However, may not such a high
way justly be considered a luxury,
important, to be sure, but worth
having and paying for only after
tbe local roads are put into good
shape. It is far more important
that farmers have good roads over
which to haul their produce tbe

bigger projects, however valuable
tbey may be.

L. D. Wlest Writes of Thoughtless
Damage to Laterals.
The Bulletin, at the request of
the writer, prints the following
letter of a Bend citizen who objects
10 certain alleged abuses of irriga
tion ditches, causing private loss
and public iuconveuience.
To tbe Editor:
Considerable annoyance has been
caused by people throwing obstructions
into the Wiest-Tabor Lateral in order to
(jet across the ditch. These obstruc
tions, consisting of rocks and litnln,
have been thrown in by different per
sons at distances of about loo yard
apart and cause refuse to catch thereon
in such a manner as to cause dams, there
by frequently overflooding the ditch and
in some instances causing more or leu
damage. In one instance posts and
other rubbish were thrown Iu to take a
traction engine across. It would prob
ably have taken the part who threw it
in about five minutes to remove iu The
posts and rubbish were left in tbe ditch
resulting in the ditch being cut at this
point and the public road iu the. vicinity
practically ruined until it can be re
paired, anil causing damages amounting
to some I to. While it no doubt is fre
quently necessary for people to cross
aim recrots private mtciics at uiUerent
points, obstructions left therein are a
nuisance and should be removed by the
parties tnrowiug tuem in.
