tween Portland and Hend, over both
the Oregon Trunk and O.-W. It. &
N. branch line, touching all tho In-termc-dlntc

fset since that time. Tho peoplo of
the state's Interior now are looking
beyond 11 end to tho south and to a
c-uu-vtlon with tin- Oiiirou Short

The road follows the rugged canyon
of the Dcsohutea river for a distance
of SZ miles, occpylug the west sldo
of tho stream. At the confluence
with Willow creek It leaves tho for
mer Btream and follows tho creek
to tho high plateau north of tho
Tho O.-W. It. & N. Co.'s lllne
leaves tho main road at the Des
chutes Junction and occupies tho
east side of the Deschutes canyon In
Its progress toward tho Interior.
At Sout Junction It diverges from
the river, crosses Trout creek over
ii high bridge and enters Madras,
101 miles from the Columbia, on a
1.5 ior eeut -srade. Just south of
Madras It eronses over Willow creek
and the Oregon Trunk traeks.
Prom that point It maintains an
easy grado until it reach oa Ita destl-!
Uon. Meanwhile the Oregon Trunk i
by as oMf grade attains a height j
equal to me otaer lino, ouauiing
them to mHt on a oJiumon level at
One of the most remarkable en
Kineerlag feats In connection with
this work was the construction of
the high steel bridge aoross the
Crooked river. This structure con
tests of a single areh and was bull:
out from either sldo until the two
ends Joined In tho middle. Both
roads operato over It. Tho bridge
Is 340 feet long and 320 feet above
the bed of tho river.
Penetrate P.lch Country.
- South of tho Crooked river Is a
rich agricultural and timber coun
try. Irrigation has aided in the de
velopment of largo areas of irid
land in this section, but other Im
mense tracts aro subject to Irriga
tion. Much of it can bo developed
by dry farming methods. Tho cam
paign for settlers has been waged
with particular reference to the
territory opened by the advent of
railroads. Many new settlers
poured Into Contra! Orefnn within
tho last ix montt'i, but the Infljx
has been somewhat slot' in oinp.iri
kon with that eiucr"'i.ifl in oL'itr
sections of the state. The country
is many million aeres In extent and
is very sparsely settled, the avcrago
population being one and one third
to the square mile.
Not only have tbo sections direct'
y tributary to those roads been
benefitted by the Improvement In
tranportatlon facilities, but towns
and communities comparatively ro
mote from tho rail Hues have ex
nerlenced eood effects. Prlnevlllo,
Paulina, Hums, I.aplne. Silver Lake'
and Lakeview, towns that havo had
connection with tho railroad only by
moans of a long and adventurous
stago Journey, now are placed with
in easy access of Portland and
Now that tho railroads havo been
built through the Deschutes can
jon, which la tho most difficult fea
ture In connection with activity in
Central Oregon, the development of
tho remainder of tho state Is com
paratively cany It Is estimated
that 20,000,000 has boon spent by
tho two big systems In reaching
Jlend. A similar sum appropriated
'for further extensions and Improve
ments, It in figured, would provide
an eastern connection from Ilend to
,Valo, would give the O.-W. It, & N.
OS lraST'treou Hend and Cres
cent,, a convenient point on tho
Southern Pnclflc, to tho south, and
would carry tho Oregon Trunk
across tho mountains to llutto Kails,
where It would connect with tho Pa
cific and Knstern, now operated by
tho 1 1 lit Interests between Modford
nnd Hutlo Falls. In the event that
tho road Is extended to Modford by
thlsroute the Oregon Ktcctrle likely
would bo pushed from Kugono to
Modford, thus providing n com
plete loop through Portland.
Tho Southern Pacific now Is push
ing Its main line between Huruiio
ou the north nud Klamath Falls on
the south, with tho expectation of
completing It soon after tho close uf
the present year. This will place
Crescent, a convenient point on
that line, only fiS miles distance
from Hend. Tho natural step will
bo the extension of tho O.-W. 11 &
X. road from Hend to Crescent.
The completion of thwee two rail
roads has made the settlement of
the Interior country invisible. The
roads hold out the assurance that
extensions will be made as fast as

number Includes leading men and

within three weeks more than -10

ItOSKHLItO A god llliiKtrntlon
of what a man can do In producing
potatoes Is demonstrated In the suc
cess of Grant Taylor, n Winchester
rancher For many years Mr Tay
lor has exerted his energies along
various lines of work, but not until
this year did he decide to experiment
In raising potntocs.
Along with his other work ho
planted n small tract of potatoes.
With cxccllont cllmitlp conditions,
his land well adapted to potato culti
vation, and other conditions favor
able, Mr. Taylor expects to havo not
less than 2000 bushels of potatoos,
which at present would bring from
1 to 2 cents a pound.
Dellcvlng that tho price Is sure to
advance In tho next few months Mr.
Taylor does not Intend to market his
product at present. This Is Mr. Tay
lor's flrt experience raising ota
toes, but he has announced he will
give more time to It In future.
