SOMETHING WORTH WHILE.
There is a great tract of land be
tween Bend and Burns. Today It Is
generally called tho homestead ebun
try.. Hundreds of families havo set
tied out there, and thousands of dol
lars worth of improroments havo
been made. Six years ago there
were only rabbits nnd stock where
now are homes, schools, fences and
As In most now countrtos, develop
ment has been slow. Even Its best
friends admit tho territory Is not n
garden spot; naturally for If It were
railroads would nave traversed it a
docado ago. It is, however, a land
of potentiality, and one which will
como into its 90. sooner or later.
The homesteaders have broken the
sod and grubbed the sagebrush. The
next step must bo Initiated by the
railroads, for without transportation
the country cannot develop much
further than already haa been ac
For two years railroad building has
been at a standstill in tho Northwest
Now, tho time of stagnation is draw
ing to a close. The national com
mercial pulso Is quickening. Tho
first ripples of a promised prosperity
are wavering over the land. All signs

For Central Oregon such a resump
tion bl WgodSlmes" will mean more
rollroad' bulldlnr. As soon ns they
are financially ablo, tho railroads will
be ready to build ulicro they are
shown it is good basinets to build.
Tho homestead country wants
transportation. It needs transporta
tion. A line trsnsvermlng it would
open up the great Harney country.
It Wtrald be of great Benefit to Bond.
What Is -tho best way to get that
To get It. one nMt demonstrate
that It would be good business.
Wq know, nnd wo bellove the rail
rood-authorities know, that the liar-
nty-country mono wuutu juaiuy con
struction southeasterly from Bend.
But what they should bo shown now
Is that tho homestond. country,
through which their line would pass,
is also worthy of transportation, from
n dollar-and-cents standpoint.
Tho best way to convince railroad
ers of Ihat'faet a to demonstrate
that the homestead country can raise
crops good crops. Once provo that
and Uia rest will bp oasy.
Lot someone plant 320 acres of
wheat out there and see what hap
pens. Do the thing as it should be
done. Have the land properly pre
pared. Use the correct klsd of seed
wheaU-sevoral varieties, if thoro Is
doubt as to the bent Care for It
solentlncally. To Insure the value
of tho experiment plaee its supervi
sion under the Oregon Agrloultural
Colloge, Let the county share the
cost fi rpntter of a vary few dollars,!
The railroads should co-operate. Wo
daroay the business men of Bend
would aoaept a share of the respon
sibility. Suoh work would be invaluable. It
would be worth thousands of dollars
to the. liomcetofldorjs. It would be the
wisest kind of foroslght tor the rail
toads. It "would be a boon to the en
tire community, By all means we
would urge the settlers of tho home
stead country to orgqnlzo and peti
