' 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 economy. 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 House. Judging from the uumbor of in quiries which Tho Bulletin Is re ceiving every week, there nro many people contemplating coming hero this year. Every mall brings letters reading to this effect: "Please seud me copy of your paper and subscrip tion rates, as I am coming to Central Oregon and wish to And out about tho country." Den W. Olcott has announced him self as a candidate for tho Republi can nomination as Secretary of Stato. Ho requests that tho following slogan bo plsced on tho official ballot after Ms name: "Results talk. My record Is before you. Believe In tho Oregon system." I Heard Here aad There I BOY'S IDEA OF EDITOIt. (Exchange). 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 summer. "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." IlEDMOND'H nALL TOSSEBS.

P. Hewitt, all around player and a U man of many athletic attainments; and Mc Cauloy and TtheroV, two good live nnea who somo day may' break Into tho league.
