ALMANAC IS A
MINE OF FACTS
CENTRAL OREGON GETS
The "Oregon Almanac," Just Issued
by tho State Immigration Commis
sion, contains a vast lot of valuable
nnd Interesting data regarding tho
state. Thoso who desire copies or
wish to have copies sent to friends
In tho East, should address C. C.
Chapman, at the Commercial Club,
Below aro some abstracts from the
Almanac, ot special local interest.
Oregon Trunk Railroad (Hill sys
tem) and Deschutes Railroad (Harrl
man system) enter tho country from
tho north and traverse tho central
portion to Dend (ISO miles from tho
Columbia river and their connections
with two great transcontinental rail
road systems), and afford the pro
ducts of the Central Oregon Empire
an outlet to the markets of the
world. Auto stage lines from Dend
and other Important trade centers iu
tho county radiate in all directions.
Extension ot railroads from Hend to
south, cast and west, and construc
tion of other railroad lines Into this
region Is In Immediate prospect, and,
In some Instances, actual construc
tion work is under way.
Deschutes river. Crooked river,
Metotlus river and numerous other
smaller but mportant streams, trlbu.
tary to the Deschutes, the main
drainage artery, afford an abundanco
of pure mountain water for domestic.
Irrigation and power purposes. The
maximum discharge ot the Des
chutes river Is only about four times
the minimum. This river and its
tributaries are capable ot developing
over 421,000 horsepower.
Surface: In the main it consists
ot fertile valleys, broad plains, and
easy slopes to the-mountains. Soils:
Volcanic ash and silt (mud or fine
earth deposited from running
streams or standing water) of excel
lent texture, light gray In color;
greatly Improved by use of green
fertilizers. Highly productive ot
small fruits, hemp, hops and other
agricultural crops when irrigated.
Approximately 260.000 acres of arid
land now In process of Irrigation
under the Carey Act provisions. Im
mense area of public lands, suscep
tible ot cultivation under dry farm
ing methods, open to entry under
provisions of enlarged homestead act
allowing 320 acres to the person eli
gible to entry under the homestead
3S8. Total number ot acres 4,7,
920. In other words, Crook county
Is almost exactly tho slio of Con
necticut, nnd Is larger than Now
Jersey and Hhudo Island combined.

SISTERS MAN IS INVENTOR
Samuel Wlehl, who lives about
three miles south ot Sisters, has ob

that should make him all the money

to set on a log that lies across a
stream or canyon and Is used as n
bridge by wild animals; also a dead
fall trap for use of trappers or any
one troubled with wild animals,
either small or large, are two Inven.
tlons or Mr. Wlehl's that will make
quite a difference In the trials of
trapping. Mr. Wlebl has also se
cured a patent on a sheep apron
wbfch will be found very useful for
