and Improvement, paying from 116

Tho soli and climate, however, are
particularly adapted to tho success

sugar boots, do romarkably woll,
Tho ylold of buttor fat from tho
grasses Is exceptionally great, and
this, combined with tho pure soft
wator, and tho lack of oxcosslvo heat
and cold, destlnos this territory to
tako tho front rank aa a dairy
country. Tho establishment of a
largo oreamory at Uend, and the aid
given farmers In securing tine cows
by the local banks, means that a man
with forty acres who will ralso grass

sured of a oomfortablo living.
Work Is now In progress upon a

Much of this torrltory has beon

Thoro Is at least 260,000 horse

Already a 1700 horsopower plant

Tho man who comes to Uend or
tho adjacent sections of Contral Ore
gon will bo agreeably surprised at
tho ploasant surroundings he will
encounter, both In what naturo has
supplied and In social matters.
For Instance, a University Club
recently was organized In Uond with
3C charter members. That indlcatos
tho character of tho men who aro
building up Central Oregon.
Tho sportsmnn will find tha Uond
country a veritable parndlse. Fish
ing in tho Deschutes Is a famous
attraction, that rlvor's giant trout
bringing sport lovers from nil parts
of thn North west. Deer, bear, rab
bits sago hens, ducks, geeso, swans
nnd other gamo afford ample recre
ation for tha out-door lover along
tho river and In tho foothills.
Canoeing and boating directly at
llond and up the broad rcachos or tho
Deschutes, coupled with excellent
auto roads, horsa back riding possi
bilities without end, and near by
snow clad mountain peaks, combine
near Uend Interest for every sort of
nature lovor and health seeker.
