Tho 320-acro homestsad law, or aa
It Is often called, tho enlarged hoinu
Btcad law, has made nosslblo tho on
try of manr million acres of drj land
In tho Western Mates In Uacls dou
blo tho alio allowed ndor tho original
homestcod law. Only land Ahlch
has been ''designated" by tho Sucre
tary of tho Interior aa "non-irnga-bio"
can bo entered under this act.
Moro than 200,000.000 acroa havo
been thus designated, but petitions
and sworn statements requesting fur
ther designations nro constantly bo
In an Interview just Riven out. Sec
retary Lano calls attention to the fact
that there appears to .considerable
misunderstanding anions Western
homesteaders as to tho procedure
necessary in order that eulareed
homestead designations may bo
made. The secretary states that only
tno simplest and most direct action
by tho settler is required, and that It
Is wholly unnecessary for him to In
cur the charges now mndo by attor
neys who draw up formal petitions
that are in fact no moro effective
than the homesteader's own lettor
would be. On this account a brief
statement of tho essential facts rela
tive to tho enlarged homestead law
Tho first enlarged homestead act
was approved February 19. 1909,
and as later amended provides that
in the states of Arizona, California,
Colorado, Idaho, Montana, Kotaua,
New Mexico, North Dakota. Orogon,
Utah. Washington and Wyoming any
person who is qualified to tnnku ntry
under the homestead laws may enter
as much as 320 acres of public land
which Is in a reasonably compact
body and is non-mineral, non-lrrl
gablo, unreserved .and unappropri
ated and docs not contain merchant
able timber. Dcfore such on try can
bo made, however, tho land must bo
designated by tho Secretary of tho
Interior as not being, in his opinion.
susceptible of successful irrigation at
a reasonable cost from any kuown
source of water supply.
fond Must lie Non-Irrlcnblc.
The work of classifying the lands
aria determining wbat areas may be
considered non-lrrigsblo has been as
signed by Secretary Lane to tho
United States Geological Surrey. Al
though, under tho present ruling of
the secretary, large areas may be des
ignated as non-irrigable without rais
ing the question whether tho land is
In other respects subject to home
stead entry, the work of examining
and classifying these large areas nec
essarily proceeds rather slowly, in
addition to these so-called "blanket"
designations, therefore, designations
of smaller areas aro made as rapidly
as their non-irrlgable character is de
termined, including areas whose des
ignation has been requested by in
dividual settlers for enlarged home
stead entry or for additional entry on
tracts adjacent to their present un
perfectcd homestead entries.
Formal Icgal Statement Unnecessary
No definite form of petition Is re,
quiied. but each application should
bo limited as far as possible to the
specific tract desired or entry and
should contain a description, by sec
tion, township and range, of tho ap
plicant's original homestead entry
and the dato of this entry, as wull as
a description, also by legal subdivis
ions, of the land doslrod for addition
al entry. Information as to tho pos
sibility of Irrigating tho land should
also bo furniBbod and should tnelude
the distance and direction of the
nearest streum or exibtiug or pro
posed irrigation canal, tho elevation
of the lowest point of tho land above
such sourco of water supply, tho
depth at which water can be reached
by wells sunk on the land, and all
available Information .concerning at
tempts to obtain water by this meth
od. The general character of tho
land, both of the homesteader's orig
inal entry (If he has made one) and
of the land desired for additional en
try, should also be described, to aid
iht Survey in reaching a decision as
tr Its non-irrlgablllty.
'this Information should be embod
ied in a letter sent direct to tho dlrec
Ur if the Jnitod Statos Geological
hurvoy, Washington. P. C. A formal
petition drown up by a notary or an
:t"..iney Is not at all necessary and
will not result In any earlier consid
eration of tho matter than will he
given If th applicant writes, person
: lly , Action will be taken on every
lenuest db promptly aa Is consistent
with n proper regard to other re
quests that are pending, and the ap
plicant will be promptly notified when
& final decision has been reached.

Stop the LossFires are Unnecessary
Brick is absolutely fire proof in any ordinary conflagration.
Brick Buildings never burn, although they are sometimes
injured by falling timbers or combustible interior woodwork.
A brick building is absolutely fire proof if wire glass is used
in the windows and if burned clay floors are used.
An interior lire in such n building is confined to the room in
which it originates; no outside fire can attack it.
The proportion of burned clay in a building construction
measures its fire proof qualities.
Burned clay is the only building material that has been
( through the fire before you get it, in such a manner that it will
resist fire. All combustible material is burned out of the brick
before you get it.

Why Should Everyone
Own a Home?
Because, the man who owns a home or is trying to pay for one bought on
the installment plan makes a better citizen, and is entitled to more credit and
respect than the one who has no home, nor is making the necessary effort to get
one. A home speaks to the heart, enlists the sentiments, ennobles the possessor.
If one buys right, ha will knSw that his property is steadily increasing in value
while he occupies it This is especially true ANYWHERE IN BEND.
You can buy RIGHT from us because we have nearly every addition in town
and can show you lots anywhere you might wish to look. Here is our list:
