Ovor 4000 acres of timber and sev

together with tho Fall Hlver school
house, as a result of a forest fire In
thn Dig Hlvor ranger district, which
broke away from tho men In charge
of It flaturday morning, and before
a crow could bo secured of sufficient
slzo to hold It, It had gained six
Haturday morning Forest Super

ranger, in a do a survey of tho lira,
then covering less than GOO acres. It
was thought at that tlmo that It
could be hold with a small crow of

u high wind had sprung up, and It
was only by tho amsllest chance that
tho supervisor and those; with him
savod their automobiles from de

and dry timber, In tho high winds
tho blazn leaped to tho crowns and
covorod thn surrounding timber
rapidly, driving boforo the wind.
As soon na the condition was de
termined, Mr. Jncohseu came to Ilond
and commenced recruiting men to
Oioko a fight In saving tho heavy
timber In this region. Moro than
CO men wero sent out from llend In
cars Saturday night, and besides this
number all the men from tho forest
stations that could be sparod, about
12 In number, wero rushed to tho
scene. Flro linos woro Immediately
established and by morning, when
most of the mon wore weary nnd
worn out from hard work and loss
of slop tho llro was fairly well
under control.
Sunday morning moro men worn
sent from The Hhevlln-IHxon and i
Hrooks-Scanlon mills to relieve those
who had gone out tho night previous,
with tho result that this morning tho
llro was ontlroly surrounded nnd
can bo easily held. Mombora of the
mill crow sent out Sunday morning
aro still on tho flro lino.

Tax values In Deschutes, county for
tho present year show a net gain ot
$743,610 ovor tho year 1017. W. T.
Mullarkoy, county assessor, has
mado public a summary of tho as
sessment rolls for tho year 1918, giv
ing tho total valuation ot taxabto
property within tho county as 5,
843, 2C0, against $5,090,640 for the
year previous. These amounts do
not Includo tho public utilities tc
levied by tho state tax commission, v
which amountod to $432,397 last
year, bringing the total valuation to
Assuming a like amount from this
source for tho present year would
Increase the 1918 valuation to $6,
316,647. Cultlvntrd Land Increase.
Tho effect ot tho Increased demand
for farm products and the back to tho
land movement Is shown In tho laFgu
Incrcaso ot cultivated lands in tho
county, almost 7000 additional acres
with an assessed valuation ot $11.68
per acre being added to tho number
under cultivation last year. During
the year 1917 thero were 43,646 cul
tivated acres within the county, hav
ing a taxabto valuation ot $102,310.
For this year the. summary ot tho tar
rolls shows 55,'5SS cultivated" acres,
with a taxable valuation of $649,
0S0, a net gain of 6912 acres and an
Increase In taxable property In tho
county amounting to $36,770.
Uncultivated lands havo shown a
marked docreasc, both In acreage and
taxablo values, due largoly to tho
larger number under cultivation.
but tho amount lost to tho county
through this decrease when sifted
down to a matter of dollars and
cents has more than been offset
through a higher valuation ot tho
cultivated area. Tho assessment ot
uncultivated land is rated as low as
$3.9S por acre valuation, whllo for
tho cultivated lands a valuation ot
Jll.CS is set. While tho loss at first
appoarances on the raw lands la
$27,540, the ultimate gain to the
county through tho Incrcaso in culti
vated lands has been $9,230 net.
Tho loss from tho uncultivated
lands would havo appeared to be
much lower had tho tax valuation
remained tho same for this year at
last. Rut instead ot theso raw lands
being assessed at $4.13 per aero this
year as thoy were tho year previous
tho board lowered tho tax valuation
to $3.68, giving a further decroass
ot ovor $5,000. Adding this amount
to tho differential In favor ot the
cultivated areas wpuld glvo an In
crease ot oyer $15,000 sustained by
tho county through tho additional
cultivated acroago for this year.
Timber Value IiicmtiHo.
Another gain ot $234,445 Is shown
In tho timber lands. Whllo tho num
bor of acres for the current year Is
glvon na over 3000 less than that of
a yoar ago, an increased valuation
ot from $6,10 to $7 per aero on the
305,439 acres is responsible for tho
A gain ot approximately 16 por
cent, is Bhown In tho improvements
on dooded lands, thero bolng tho dlf

and $237,295 for this year, a total
gain ot $32,310.
Ilond Property Incrwwcn.
Dead property has Increased $83,
280, according to Mr. Mullafkey.
For 1917 tho assessment rolls show
a total valuation for improvod and
unimproved city lots ot $612,140.
Tho 1918 valuation for tho same
