Feeding Young Stock. '
The amount of gain the young stock
will miike during winter depends
largely upon the feed and care they
let. It Is true thai (he scrub will of.
fu make very little gain even with
good care, but in these days of blgh
priced feed It does not pay to keep
senilis at all, so we cannot take them,
into consideration. A calf of good
blood, bowerer, will always answer to
good tending, but eren It cannot do
well without It. - i

young stock during winter U also an
Important factor. Not only is thla to
protect them from severe weather, but
it wll save feed as well. Young stock

i t mere were some arucies comparing
1 BEND and its future with Seattle and
its past. Did you read them? You
undoubtedly did. If you did not, loose no
time to do so and while you are reading
THINK. After thinking hard, ask yourself
if you can afford to let pass another such
opportunity as those now wealthy men in
Seattle who could see into the future took
advantage of--then invest in Bend property.
Once there was a man who said he
would never do anything he hadn't done
before. Fortunately there were not many of
his kind, so the world continued to advance
just the same.
