Tho ex-proprlotor of the Mountain
View and Altatnont hotel, after run
ning up hills with everyone ho pos
sibly could "got into," allpped out
of town last week, ensiling a lot of
"phony" checks tho previous evening.
The amount of these worthless checks
Is probably close to K00, while no
accurate ftgurea aro obtalnablo con
cerning hla bad bills. No assets ap
pear, other than those colored by
mortgage. The "club" has subscrib
ed about J 100 whloh will bo used In
tracing Cursey, In co-opcratlon with
the authorfllea. The belief Is current
that ho escaped to Canada.
In addition to "stinging" mon
fnlrly well ablo to stand tho loss,
both with bogus checks and by beat
ing bills. Curacy played a couple of
sKclally low-down games, cheating
at least two laboring men and a
working girl out of their month's
wages, and more. Prominent mem
bers of the "club" promlso him a
warm reception when discovered,
nnd thoro scorns little doubt that the
ex-hotel man will eventually become
a penitentiary (warder.

N. P. "SMITH
SO SAYS A POWELL
Allen Wlllcoxon Give Hxmnplo of
Hplendid Itemilti With P.'.L-r,
Predicting 111k Future llcnil
Kiipplle mi lUeollsiif, Mnrket.
Hplcndld crops, no frost, much de
velopment and the finest kind of an
outlook for hog raising are among
the optimistic reports brought In
from Powell llutto by Alton WllleoY
on, the well known rancher, who with
his family was hero Monday.
"The district never looked better,"
said Mr. Wlllcoxon. "Fall grain has
done poorly, because of tho lack rf
moisture In tho winter and spring,
but everything else Is splendid. For
Instance, I liavo 30 acres o btaak
beardless barley something ne
and It will go GO bushels to t!e acre.
It will bo used for hog feed."
And that started him on lng. The
country and especially the Powell
llutto districtIs full of hog cntha
slasU those days, but If you want to
strtko a real six-cylinder, CO horse
power self-starting one, ask Wllleox
oh about hogs.
"Hogs are tho making of the coun
try," said he. "Thoy moan absolute
ly cortaln profits big profits at the
present prices, and there's no reason
to believe, prices ever will be lower.
There Is no risk. The market Is
sure, and tho demand great. Froats
and drought don't hurt a porker. Any
man with 40 acres and some common
sense can lay asldo a good bank ac
count with halt a dozen sows to start
Mr. Wlllcoxon says ho expects to
ship two cars of pigs a year from now
on. A car holds about 70. He esti
mates tho net return to the ranch,
after paying transportation charges.
Is about $1C. or $3210 a year. "And
tills comes from only 10 sows," ha
added, "and the cost of caring for
them Is precious llttlo."
He gave no example of hog money
making.. Threo months ago ho bought
a sow for 20. It ato nothing but
pasture. It now has 10 pigs, worth
int least $S oaeh and In six months
, It will have another litter. Mr. Will
ooxoh has 16 sows and about 100
; plas. Of the sows. 13 are now com
ing In, meaning another 100 pigs,
i pro ba lily.
HeilH nml Turkey, Too,
lu addition to hogs, Mr. Wlllcoxon
plana to go Into hen and turkey rais
ing quite extensively. He bellcvo
there will be a far better mnrkot in
It than In renting land for general
farming, as he now does. Ills own
properly Is 10 aores.
"There hnvo helm no frosts what
ever this year. Last year was better
than the yoar before. In other words
that can bo produced will find a prof
itable market here

0-W. IMPROVES TRAIN SERVICE
Nearly an Hour Cut From Running
Time of Hay Train.
Another Improvement In Bend's
railroad service has been effected.
II. C. Oliver, traveling agent of the
OregonWaahlngtOn Railroad & Nav

hooafter the morning train will
leave here at 7:30 a. m. Instoad of
G:4S as hitherto, while tno train will
arrive at night at 7:30 Instead of at
8: IB, thus euttlng oft three-quarters

Tom Hutton Gets Qulnby IUncli
location of Homestead, Continue.
A land sale of special interest was
I .at consummated a short time ago,
when 480 acres of meadow land near
the C. B. Allen ranch, on tho upper
Deschutes, became the property of
Tom Hutton, the sheepman. The
sale, said to involve more than $$000.
was made through tho Oregon Land
& Immigration Co. of Bend.
The property was owned by F.
Qulnby. Hutton comes from the
Wagontlro country, his formor post
oltlco having been Kgll. It la under
stood that he will uuo his new land
for summer grating for his sheep,
which were clipped hore reosntly, be
ing the first sheep sheared In Bend.
Whlld land sales seem somewhat
few and far between. Just now, lo
cation of homesteaders continues,
many being placed on the southeast
lands by local locators. Since 'handl
ing the Presbyterian colony of IS,
two weeks ago, the Land & Immigra
tion Co. has made about 10 locations.
According to O. C. Henkle. tho homo
, stead country Is being Improved rap-idly.
