wise Important in giving an opportu
nity for tho expansion of our trade
A few days ago wa pointed out
hero what Redmond had dono In ob
taining rural routes through tho
surrounding country. Extension of
the routo to Burns would be a step
In the' same direction on tho part
or Bend. And In going at tho Job it
would bo a good thing If Redmond's
example of sticking at It until suc
cessful -wcro followed. All tho
argument Is in favor, and wo lmagtno
that tho greatest difficulty to over
copo will bo 'tho attitude of tho
present postmaster general toward
extensions and Improvements within
By tho wny, whllo wo aro consid

tion to ask whatever happened to
.tho Commercial club committee sup
Jjojcd to be working on a rural routo

(Jhlcago consumers woro paying 20
cents it pound for sugar, a dollar a

a pound for tea, and seventcon cents

three dollars for n pound of sugnr,
ono to two dollars n pound for moat,
and $25 a bushel for wheat.
Tho moral of nil this Is that prices
dro going down within tho next five
years wktch means that a dollar sav
ed to-day will bo worth at least
twice as much flvo years from now.
Therefore cut out luxuries and sumo
necessities. Invest every dollar you
can In United States "War Stamps and

bring four por cent interest com

production catchs up with demand.

t The plan to forman Irrigation dis
trict out of tho Tumnlo project, out
lined in tho petition for nn election
which 13 published in this Issue of
Tho Bulletin, is likely to bo the cause
of considerable friction until the
question is settled. Ever slnco it was
proposed it has probably been the
chief subject for discussion In every
Tumalo home and already tho pros
and tho antis must bo pretty well
established in thoir respective camps.
Formation of a district has "been
proposed as a means of obtaining
moro water for tho project. Al
though no moro land was 'supposed
to hnvo been sold under the project
than there was sufficient water-for,
it has, developed, especially In tho
past season, tlwt tho now settlers
and thoso 'at tho end of tho ditches,
have not had enough water. If tho
leaks In tho reservoir could bo cured
therq would beonough for all and for"
much new land. It seems hopeless
to obtain any aid from tho state for
stopping J.hcs;loaks and so tho set
tiers' wouid tako things Into their
own hands through a district.
Groundwork for the extcution of
such plan wyis laid at tho last legisla
ture by the passage of a bill authoriz
ing tho Desert Land Board to reduce
the existing lien on Tumalo lands to
sjich amount as It saw fit, the Idea
being that if uMIstrlct wero formed
and additional liens added on ac
count of reservoir expenditures the
state might waivo enough of Its
claim to leave tho amount to be paid
by 'each settler llttlo or no greater
than It now Is.
. Aa wo see it tho chief objection to
tho district idea Is likely to como
from tho older established water
right hjolders Svlio seo nothing to
gain from tho plan. That, however,
seems the part of pure selfishness
unless they can also show that they
actually have good deal to lose. To
the nowoij settlers who aro short of
water the plan means everything, as
it does, also, for tho further develop
ment of tho project.
For these reasons It seems to us
tha't tho district plun should have
the support of tho voters Interested.
If allwho have signed tho petition
aro Injftiyor tlioro should bo no diffi
culty and wo trust that this may be

LUCKY FARM BOYS
In our items from Powell Butto
this week there appears a bit of news
that Is worthy of more than passing
mention. It Is to the erfect that n
Powoll Butto father has bought a
small flock of sheep for his boys and
that, though hnrdly in their teens,
they are learning proper business
How different fro-u tho sort of
thing that according to farm experts
has done so much to send boys from
tho farms Into tho city. In too
many Instances tho ' boy has bcon
given a calf or a colt which ho has
brought up and cared for as his own
only to find, when tho animal began
to have a commercial value, that his
father claimed It. That, so It Is
said, Is ono of the biggest reasons
why farm boys do not like to stay
on tho farm but escape to tho city
Just us soon-as they can do so.
Thcso Powell Butto boys have a
father who knows how to keep his
sons nt home and, at the samo time,
to givo them training in agricultural
methods that will mean success In
after years. It's a wise father and
a lot of lucky boys.
Tho Idea was woll brought out In
n verso published in Tho Bulletin
several weeks ago, and, becauso of
its real timeliness, reprinted hero
