BEING TAKEN UP
SUCCESS OF PROJECT
In Interview In Oregon Journal For-
liicr Project Knglnccr Iinurputnl
Gives Details of Interest to the
Central Oregon Homo Seeker.
In tho Oregon Journal of Portland,
for Sunday, appeared the following
Interview with O. Laurgaard, con
struction engineer ot the Tumalo
"In my mind there la no question
of tho success of the Tumalo pro
ject," said tho engineer. "Up to tho
first of obruary, tho umo I lert tho
project, thoro had been 208 contracts
actually executed for lands on tho
project, and each contract represent
ed 40 acres. This Is really remark
aula when you consider that the pro
ject has been completed only about
A month and that no sales are pos
sible In tho winter time when tho
country Is covered with snow and few
people are traveling. Tho contracts
I speak of were executed before Jan
uary 1 and botore snowfall. Example
of the Interest taken by tho general
public and homeseckors Is given In
tho results of one week's advortls-
ing In tho leading Portland, Seattle
nnd Spokane papers. Wo received
Inquiries from ovor 1500 lutercsted
land seekers, a great many of whom
will visit tho project to buy land In
tlio spring. There remains only
nbout 40040-acro contracts still to
bo signed before tho Tumalo project
will have been entirely taken up by
Payments Made Easy.
"Tho state Is making tho payments
exceedingly easy. Hut one-tenth cash
is required at tho time of tho execu
tion ot tho contract, and the balance
In ten years. If a man improves nd
cultivates one-third of the Irrigable
area of his tract each of the first
three years no payment is required
en the principal during thoso years,
otherwise one tenth is required an
nually and Interest Is charged on all
deferred payments at the rnto of C
"In order to eliminate tho specu
lator, lands are sold not to exceed
SO acres of Irrigable land to ono per
son. A man. to file on tho land, must
be of nge, a United States citizen or
ono who has declared intention of
becoming a citizen. Tho land is free.
Tho charce is mado for tho water
right only and at tho-rato of $40 per
Irvlmthlo. Mre, If thoro Is WdStO
land on any tract the settler pays
ror it at me rata or jz.oo per aero
"In my opinion, the country is
best adapted for dairying and stock
raising. The lands nre suitable for
tho growing of alfalfa, clover, cor
enls and root crops. Each acre, with
ordinary care, will raise from three
to fire tons of alfalfa a year. Thla
v. "ld locally. Is alwavs in good
demand at from $12 to $lr n ton.
end when fed to livestock It has been
demonstrated that the hay brings
about $20 a ton.
Petorns are Ktlmntrd.
"Thirty to eighty acre of Irrigable
lond, depeodont upon tho man and
the size of' his family, will mako a
good living for any settler.
"Oeforo a man goes on the pro
tect, no should have as capital at
least $700 to $1000. He will find It
nrcessarv first to bulls a small house
costing $300 to $400. He must put
up a fonce, tho cost of which will
depend unm tho amount of his luNr
but should not exceed $C0 cash. Ho
must buv a team, costing approxi
mately $200 and a cow. costing $00
to $70. His wagrn and farm Imple
ments will cost from $150 to $260.
In nddltion.to these expenses, a man
with a family must provide for tho
living and must furnish a year of
his own labor before ho can expect
any returns. His work will consist
f making improvement c1rlnu
his land and preparing tbe soil for
"Tho first cash pevment for the
water right will bo $4 per Irrigable
"There Is absolutely no Question
but thut a man oan mako n suceew
on the Tumalo pnneot If he has n
capital of $700 to $1000, works hard
and sticks to It.
Frosts Not Pes red.
"On acoount of fife dry condition
cf the territory about the Tunisia
n-oject nnd the high altitude agricul
tural crona nre not very successfully
grown without Irrigation. The terri
tory Is subject to occasional frosts
during the growing season, but wliore
water is nvallablo for application
theso frosts do not affect the crops
detrimentally. It hrs been domun
H rated that water applied to crops
tho day following a frost will prevent
any considerable dnmago to the crop.
"Tho Tumalo project contains 22.
G00 irrigable acres. Tho reservoir
elto covers 1100 acres and the res
ervoir Is supplied bv the unfailing
lyatars.uf Tumalo and Crater creeks.
It haji n Btornge capacity of 20,000
acre- feet, and according to tho re
ports by the bst engineers of tho
ocuntry the water supply In amplo
mid will continue to ho go.
" When I was first annotated nro-
Ject engineer, I realized that the '
rTraJleflt part of the development was
the construction work. Tbe big thing
a to settle the land wlUi industrious
n-itlsfled farmers who will cultivate
the lands that we have reclaimed and
thereby contribute to the progress
and the woaUli of tho state

Ipg Fred N Wallace, a Central Ore
gon man, as project manager He Is
familiar with conditions and knows
what Uia settlor must provlilo for,
Anyono dealrlnK Information should

(ton., or tho Desert Land Hoard at
Salem. Although I hnvo ofllclally
Rovorod my conuoctton with tho jtro

Suggestions for Planting Spring
Ily County Agriculturist A, 13. Itoctt
Many of tho farmers who havo
lived in Crook county for a number
of yoars aro well Informed as to host
times for seeding tho crops grown In
th s section, 'the majority of those
coming to tho country lately, and
possibly pome of thoso who have liv
ed hero sovornl years, are not yot
positive as to tho host tlmo for seed
ing. ThrouRh conversations with tho
older farmers and through experi
ments carried on by tho Collcgo and
Department ot Agriculture In this
section, I havo gained tho following
Field peas should bo planted on a
well prepared seed hod hetwoon
March 10th and April 1st. This crop
will stand considerable frost, but will
not stand tho hot and dry weather of
our lato summon
Swoet clover, as a cultivated crop,
Is now to this section nnd wo nro not
positive as to the best tlmo ot seed
ing. One farmar In this section mot
with success last season by planting
this crop about April 1st on Irrigat
ed land. In the Contral West, a good
crop has boon grown by planting In
February and as lata no April, in my
opinion, tho best tlmo for planting
this crop win bo from March 1st to
Somo success has been obtained In
planting clover In March, but tho
most successful fnrmers with this
crop havo planted In April or May
In my opinion, clover may bo plant
ed successfully at any tlmo after
March Int. and where planted with a
spring cover crop, may bo planted at
best tlmo for this lattor crop.
Alfalfa has boon planted from
April 1st to July 1st. Probably tho
host time for seeding this crop Is
about May 15th.
Sorao succesi with Winter onto has
been obtained by planting In Febru
ary or early March, but If tho winter
oats are planted later than March
ICth. they probably will not head or
mako good hay. Spring oats may bo
planted after April 1st probably
best success having been obtained by
planting about April ISth to May 1.
Winter varieties of wheat may bo
grown by planting in February but
best success with theso Is usually ob
tained by planting In tho Fall. Spring
whoat should bo planted about May
1st to May lGth.
Spring Emmcr. or Spoltx ore a very
good crop for dry land, and should
bo planted about April 15th.
Spring barloy should bo seeded
about April 1st to 15th, but on Ir
rigated land may bo planted as lato
If corn Is grown. It should bo
nlanted between May 1st and June
1st, depending upon tho woathcrjnjfjf

There Is a great dlfforenco In va
rieties of all classes of farm crops.
Tho following varieties of crops hero
dlscuRGod nro recommended by tho
Agricultural Collcgo for planting In
On dry land, sixty day oats will
gtvo best renultn. On Irrigated land,
banner. Bhadeland challenge shade
land climax, sixty day, stlvermlna or
Swedish select nre good.
On dry land, tho early hart whoat
Is especially rocommoiidod for gram
as a spring crop, and Turkey Itod for
rail planting. On Irrigated lands, tho
Marquis, early bart and Oalgntos for
grain, and blue atom for hay.
Tho spring ommor. or spelts, aro
recommended for dry farms. On dry
farms, tho Hannchon barloy la recom
mended. On Irrigated land, tho
Swanneck, Hannchon, Wisconsin No,
9 or No. G, and tho Odorbruckor,
montlonod In order of Importance,
are recommended for grain, and tho
bald or hullless barley for liny.
Tho Minnesota 23 Is recommended
ns n corn crop for grain, nnd tho
Mlunosota 13 for sllugo. Thoso plant
ing corn will do well to plant the
major portion ot tho crop from natlva
soed, and plant tho above montlonod
vnrlotlcs luiuuallor quantities for tho
raising of soed. Inasmuch as any now
variety brought to a now section will
not produce au well until acclimated
and Is therefore not to bo dopondod
upon for tho main crop tho first year
All scod, especially that of alfalfa
and clovor, should bo sampled nnd
the samplo sent to tho College for
testing as to purity and germination
before tho soed Is purchnsod. Sever
al sample of theso seeds havo been
rent from this section already this
spring, and many havo bcon found
unfit for planting. Much ot tho al
falfa soed on tho market Is not only
poor In quality, but will produce a
poor producing crop for hay. A so
lected seed with hardy, high-producing
crop la worth at least twice as
much ns that obtained by haphazard
methods, and from fields of which no
record Is kopt. Alfalfa is ono of
our best crops in this section, and It
will pay us well to uso great care and
pay even a very high prlco for good
seed for this crop.
I shall bo very glad to help any
farmers Interested In securing tho
best seed for tholr crops.
