(From Wednesday's Dally.)
Cattle valued at $7500 are esti
mated to havo been saved In Do
schutcs county alone during the pres
ent year through vaccination lor
blackleuc, according to It. A. Ward,
county agent, who has had charge of
the work hero.
Since tho spring season, tho coun
ty agent's office has distributed S700
doses of blackleg vacclno and has
vaccinated over 750 cattlo for demon
stration purposes. Annual range
losses from blackleg run around 3
per cent., sometimes higher, but
owners roport nono of the vaccin
ated cattlo dying from tho disease.
On a 140 valuation per head, this
work has prevented tho loss of
about $7500 worth or cattlo, which
would bo 3 per cent, or the numbor
vaccinated.
Tho last vaccinating demonstration
was held at Tumnlo last week, whero
the Gerklng, McGuIre nnd Peterson
cattlo wero treated. Animals Infect
ed with blackleg at the time of vac
cination will die, as tho vacclno la
powerless to check tho disease after
Infection.
As tho spores or the disease will
carry over in tho earth and grass
roots ror years, It Is strongly recom
mended by Mr. Ward that animals
bo burned -whoro thoy die, and not
dragged out ot tho field. Dragging
tho carcass Is sure to spread tho dls
cuso over tho range, while burlng It
on tho spot -will assist In locnlllzlng
and controlling this scourgo ot the
cattlo Industry.
ILL ORGANIZE
FARM BUREAU
l-'AIttiKRS OF COUNTY TO TAKE
UP NEW PliAN WITH ABATE
MENT OF THE INFLUENZA
EPIDEMIC.
(From Wednesday's Dally.)
After tho Influenza epidemic Is
safely past farmers ot tho county
aro planning on forming tho De
schutes County Farm Bureau, to
take tho placo ot tho old agricultural
council, which formerly served both
counties, according to R. A. Ward,
county agent. Tho now plan contem
plates a moro practical and thorough
organization than was posslblo undor
the old system, and is tho plan now
followed In practically all states hav
ing county agents, except Orogou nnd
Washington.
Furraora In conferenco with tho
ngeut bollovu that tho chango Is do
slrable now that Deschutes county
will havo tho services ot tho agent
alone, Instead ot dividing tho work
with Crook county, na wa8 dono last
year.
I tho Investigators announced, and are
working undor such conditions as
nro not a dotrlment to either tholr
honlth or morals. Furthermore,
thoy are satisfied with theso condi
tions, and hotly protested tho pro
posed uction ot tho state welfare
commission. All ot theso workers,
according to tho roport, stand ready
to relinquish their positions In favor
ot male help at any tlmo whon It Is
known that such male help la ado
quato to tako up tho work.
Tho recommendation of tho com
munity labor board that tho women
bo pormltted to remain at tholr posts
ot duty until tho present shortage
ot labor is nettled with tho roturn
ot tho majo population from mili
tary life was forwarded to tho state
wolfaro commission last night, so
that it might bo at their disposition
at the mooting to bo hold today.
POST-WAR IRRIGATION
DISCUSSED.
KnfrJneer Recommend Central Or
gon Irrigation Scheme for De
velopment by Nntlonnl
Reclamation Service.
(8pcUI to T natlettn.)
SALBM, Nov. 16. Tho immense
Deschutes project In Central Oregon
is one ot the projects that should
be given tho earliest posslblo con
sldcratlon as a post-b'cllum Irrigation
development measure, nccordlng to a
letter which has Just gono forward
from horo to F. E. Woymouth, chief
ot construction ot tho United States
reclamation service. Tho recommen
dation was mado by Stato Engineer
Lewis alter Engineer Weymouth had
requested tho stato engineer to give
him Information as to tho principal
projects In Oregon which should bo
developed as atter-tho-war progress
measures.
State Engineer Lewis also cites
tho Silver Lake project as another
of considerable Importance to be
taken Into consideration by the rec
lamation sorvlco.
In connection with tho Deschutes
project Mr. Lawis also emphasizes
tho deslrabllty of making further
Investigations particularly In refer
ence to tho Denham Falls project,
as a part ot tho great Deschutes
project.
In his letter Mr. Lewis says:
"I havo your Inquiry of tho 9th
instant relative to Irrigation projects
In this stato In which tho reclama
tion service might bo Interested in
connection with Its post-bellum pro
gram. "Tho investigation that the state
made In co-operation with tho U. S.
reclamation servlco a fow years ago
covered the stato pretty thoroughly
and no Important Irrigation projects
havo been brought to light slnco the
completion of tho Investigation.
"Our attention has been frequently
called to what appears to bo an ex
cellent project In tho Warm Springs
Indian reservation in Wasco county.
Somo investigation ot this project
has been made by tho Indian service,
though no steps havo been taken for
its construction and whllo we havo
no definite information in regard to
It tho reports wo have Indicate that
It Is an excellent project. I mention
theso projects as being tho only ones
which might be regarded as falling
In the first class to which you refer
In your letter, though doubtless somo
ot tho projects investigated by tho
state and the United States undor
tho provisions of Chapter 86 could
woll be placed In this class.
"As you havo copies of tho co
operative reports you will bo In
terested only In tho present Btatu.
of theso projects. I will therefore
refer you to tho last blonnlal roport
of this otflco, on pages 116-118 and
12C of which you will find a discus
sion ot tho status of the;o projects
at the tlmo ot tho Issuunco ot this
report. Slnco thnt tlmo tho Med
ford Irrigation district has been or
ganized nnd has voted a bond Issuo
ot 11,500,000. Tho organization ot
tho Silver Lake district has been com
pleted and tho bonds ot tho Warm
Springs district have been disposed
ot and construction work will hogln
In tho vory near future. A district
has also been organized in Harney
vnlloy and one is In process ot or
ganization on Sliver crook.
Dvsctiutca Project.
"Wo teol that tho Deschutes proj
ect Is worthy ot consideration by tho
reclamation sorvlco at thla time on
account ot Its magnttudo and the
fact that n large and oxponslvo
reservoir must bo constructed to con
serve a uumber ot moro or loss In
dependent units, thus rendering It
difficult to finance nnd construct any
unit separate from the others.
"A report iaa been made, by a
board of consulting engineers, In
which it was found that the Tumalo
rosorvolr, constructed tor tho irriga
tion of 20,000 ncron In the stato's
Tumalo projoct, for tho comjtfuotlou
of which tho etuto appropriated
