nkki snwnrt system.
' llend U crowing rapidly, but in
order for It to become the city which
we all expect and bctlcro it will bo
corno it must hare a sewer systom.
New buildings are being erected
which are equipped with modern
plumbing fixtures which septic tanks
and cesspools will not take care "of so
that the health of the town Is safe.
In the pail there has been no danger,
but with a population Increasing by
leaps and bounds the necessity of a
sower disposal system Is self-evldont
Tho construction of a system here
will be no small undertaking, owing
primarily to tho fact that the river
cannot bo used as a means of dls
iiosal. Tho topography makes that
stream a natural dlsposat outlet, but
other means are possible and tho
sooner tho city gets started on this
project tho Itcttor, It would seem.
To wait until an epidemic has swept
tho town, probably, would be poor
With tho adoption of a charter,
jading of the' city was made possN
!ble and of course tils Is the way the
sewer system will hare to be taken
care of. A bond Issue of, say, $100
ufcO would bo ample and would uot
even now be burdensome. Each
year 1" wo.uld bo less so, the Increaso
' Jn'proprtr valuations gWlnfr a larxr
cas return" and a fuarer rate. The!
Vitonds COUl uo Issued to run for 20
yetI i,T more, at the end of which
period tho town would have grown
to bo u largo city and the bonds could
bo easily paid off.
Tbo City Council has slready
taken preliminary steps In tho mat
ter, having ashed sewer system ex
perts to visit Bond and look over the
situation. Hanty action in a matter
like this, of course, would be unwise,
but fully as unwise a course would
be to retard tbo development of the
town by unnecessary delaying a mat
ter of such vital Importance.
AKK Till..' U.VAPPKECLVnVE?
Tho rural free delivery route from
Bend has now beon established for
iwn witeko. and from reliable re-
wjrts which havo reached The Bullo
'tin It would seem that some of the
people of the territory served aro not
taking advantage of tno goou worn
clo Sim is doing for them. The
govornmeut regulations require that
each H. F. 1). patron must provldo n
box In which tho carrier mar Place
his mall, and If such Is not dono mall
Is not loft for that porsou. A num
ber of pcoplo on tho route It Is Bald,
have failed vto put up boxes, this be
ing, ospcolnlly true of nm who llvo
on tho rood to Prlnevlllo. Thoy
havo been recolvlng their mall each
morning from tho star routo carrier,
and as tho It. F. 1). sorvlco Is only
trl-wcokly thoy prefer to ollng to tho
old way of gottlng their mall.
Doubtless they havo forgotten tho
fRCt that lln"Riiverlnonl will dlacon
tlnuo the sorvlco from hero to Powoll
Uutto ou March 1. serving that town
by another routo. Would thoy like
to have to etrtnc to the office at Hend
for their mall, after having received
It at tholr door? To bo suro not,
but that Is what may happen If tho
U. F. D. routo people do not tako ad
vantage of what tho Postoltlco De
partment offers them. Vnolo Sam
has a way6 of refusing to do things
some times ami this Includes tho dis
continuing of, rural free dellvory
routes which are not properly patron
lxed. It thoreforo behooves all thoso
who llvo on tho Bond routo to put
up their boxes and see that their
neighbors who have not dono so get
busy at onco.
Tho three-) ear homestead bill,
which also provides a six months'
leave of absence each year, has pass
ed tho Senate, but seems far from
bocoiulng a law this session. Secre
tary of tho Interior Fisher opposes It.
on the ground that Jt makes It too
oasy for personi to acquire public
land. Tho House public lands com
mittee has been holding hearings but
has not yet reported tho bill to the
Judging from the uumbor of in
quiries which Tho Bulletin Is re

BOY'S IDEA OF EDITOIt.
Tho following Is what a boy thinks
of an editor:
"I don't know how newspapers
camo to be In the world and I don't
think God knows, for ho ain't gut
nothing to say about them In tho
Bible. I think tho editor Is the
missing link wo read of and stayed
In tho bushes until the flood, and
then came out and wrote things up
and stayed here ever slnco. I don't
think ho ever died, I nover saw a
dead one and nover heard of ono get
ting licked. Our paper Is a mighty
good one; but tho editor goes with
out underclothes all winter, and
don't wear any socks and pa ain't
paid his subscription since tho paper
started. I asked pa if that was why
tho editor had to suck tbo Julco out
of snowballs In winter, and go to
bed when ho had his shirt washed In
"Then pa got mad and took roe
out in the woodshed and licked me
awful hard. If the- editor makes
mistakes, folks say he ought to be
hanged; but If the doctor makes any
mistakes he buries them aud peoplo
dassent say nothing becauso doctors
csn road and write Latin. When
tho editor makes mistakes there is
lawsuits and swearing and a big fuss,
but 1 the doctor makes one there is a
funeral, cut flowers and perfect
alienee. A doctor can use a word a
yard long without him or anyooay
knowing wnat u menun, uui. n ww
editor uses one ho hss to spell It.
"If the doctor goes to see another
man's wlfo ho charges tho man for
the visit; but if the editor should go,
be gets a charge of buckshot. Ajy
collego csn make a dgctr.r to order,
but an editor has lo be born."
