HELPING FARM WOMEN
In nn effort to discover tho rea
sons why families are moving from
their farm homes to the city, tho de
partment of agriculture has ireontly
conducted a survey covering cdud
tles all over tho country. From the
Information so gained It hopes to Iu
etltuto reforms and Improvements
that will check the exodus nnd aid
in recreating tho farm conditions es
sential to tho well being of tho na
tion. For tho most part, tho thing thnt
has caused dissatisfaction with farm
llfo Is tho condition of the women,
according to the first reports of the
results oi mo survey, massed oy
tho census bureau ns persons having
"no occupation," the farm women, in
fact, have lives filled with tho wid
est rango of activity. Long hours
nro theirs nnd, except in rare in
stances, work, with few or nono of
tho modern conveniences that light
en housework. Tho farm woman,
tho report Bays, is cook, seamstress,
laundress, nurso and factor In com
iBunlty life, ns well as producer ot
dairy, garden and poultry products
Her average working day in tho sum
rapr is 13.12 hours long and at its
closo she is too tired to enjoy nny
recreation, if, Indeed, any is avail
able. All this being so, It is not surpris
ing thnt the women rebel nnd urge
a chango from tho drudgery ot tho
farm. For n remedy it Is suggested
tfcftt tho men go ns fnr toward tho
Introduction of labor-saving devices
and other improvements In tho kltch-
DON'T TAKE A CHANCE

President Hclmrlch of tho Great
Southern railroad, now nearly com
pleted between Tho Dallesfand Dufur,
told a Bulletin man last week that
his plans contemplato building to
Bend, at least, with probably n con-
tho tlnunnco southward; Ho Bald tho
lapm. it is education tnat Is need- iumber traffic is tho chief object of
ed,, education of the loving but his roaj
thoughtless husbands. With that,
many changes can be wrought.
As ono of tho text books in tho
course we suggest that farmers read
a. story by Mary E. Wllklns entitled
"Tho Revolt of Mother."
USING WOOD WASTE
While wo are hunting for new In
dustries for Bend, the forest prod
ucts laboratory maintained by tho
government at Madison, Wis., Is seek
ing to discover how wood wasto may
be utilized. Since one of the most
abundant of local materials is wood
waste, It seems possible that It might
bo well to keep In touch with tho
work of tho laboratory.
One of Its latest Investigations has
been as to tho practicability of using
wood alcohol for motor fuel. This,
a iccent bulletin from tho labora
tory says, seems to be entirely out of
the question because ot Its high
price, but it may be possible to man
ufacture grain alcohol from wood
and use It as a substitute for gaso
line. There seems to be confusion In
terms here, but this Is what the bul
Coniferous sawdust is the material
used along with other forms of waste.
Ono ton will yield from 15 to 20 gal-
Governor Myron T. Herrlck of
Ohio is on his way with a party that
will go hunting nnd fishing up tho
Deschutes next week and look over
tho Bend region as a field for invest
ment. John Sisemoro has received word
that his contest against tho desert
land entry of Temperance O. Harsh
man has been decided Inhls favor by
the district land office.
Water was forced up Into the wn-j
ter works reservoir this week and
tho big tank is slowly being filled.
It is reported that sheep herders
jvho have been grazing their bands
In the neighborhood of Tumalo post
office havo done much damage to Ir
rigation ditches and crops and huvo
set out fires that have burned con
siderable timber. Their conduct has
made them very unpopular and It Is
probable that criminal prosecutions
wll be started on the chargo ot set
ting flro to tho forest.
Mr. and Mrs. W. H. Staats and
eons, Sylvester and Prince, left yes
terday by team for tho Willametto
valley. They will visit tho Lewis

Tho cost of stored wntor Is estl-
mated nt $2.45 por aero foot. This
Is relatively low.
Tho cost of Irrigation ranges from
$35 to $G0 por aero. 'It varies with
each unit, and with tho typo ot con
1. Tho North unit of 95.300
acres In tho vicinity of tho towns of
Gatoway, Madras, Motollus, Culvor
and Opal City, will cost $5,519,000.
or $55.58 pur ncro. All of tho main
canals and tho larger part of the dis
tributing laterals nro planned to bo
concrete lines. Water will be di
verted from tho Deschutes river at
Aubrey,,fnlls by n multiple arch con
crete dam, raising tho water 5S fcot,
and carried ncross Crooked river by
a reinforced concreto flumo support
ed on n steel arch brldgo. This unit
lies north of Crooked river and on
the east side of Deschutes river.
2. The West SIdo unit ot 20,325
acres adjoins, tho stato's Tumnlo
project. It Is on tho west side of
Deschutes river and extends to
Squaw creek. Water will bo divert
ed by tho satno dam as for tho North
unit. Tho Anbrcy falls diversion
dam Is about eight miles Bouth of
Cllno falls and will cost $1G1,000.
If tho proper proportion ot this cost
is assessed against tho West SIdo
unit, tho ncro cost for reclamation,
will range from $34.8? to $43.14 per
ncro. Sevornl nltornntlvo schemes
for tho development of this unit nro
proposed. Ono of theso eliminating
tho dlvorslon dam and diverting wa
ter at Laldlaw, flvo mllos south, will
cost $647,000, or $41.40 per acre,
for 15,030 acres. Tho larger scheme
covers 20,325 acres nnd will cost
$831,500, or approximately $41 per
3. The East SIdo unit Includes
3C.000 acres In whnt Is known as
tho North Canal project of tho Cen
trnl Oregon Irrigation company. This
company now hns a contract to re
claim these lands under tho Cnroy
act, but recently offered to turn It
over to tho public for a considera
tion. Tho works aro partly complet
ed. Tho total cost Is In excess of
$1,000,000 and tho aero cost ranges
from $32 to $42.50 per acre under

It is the belief of those associated withThe First National
Bank of Bend, that a bank's value to its community is
measured by the service it renders. The right of a bank
to exist and enjoy the patronage of its community, is
in exact proportion to its willingness to foster by every
legitimate means the natural and industrial resources
of the territory which it serves.

Tho agricultural or soil survey of
tho various units shows soils 1G
Inches, or greater. In depth. Its
physical character for Irrigation nnd
cultivation Is generally good. A
slight deficiency In nitrogen content
of tho soil Is, however, noted, From
tho standpoint of engineering and
'construction difficulties, nil projects
nro .considered fenHlblo.
From tho standpoint of agricul
Tho West SIdo unit, or any of tho
various alternatives, Is considered
dcslrnblo at tho estimated cost If In
terest chorgos do not exceed 0 per
cent on deferred payments, nnd n
cousldornblo period Is .allowed tor re
payment of tha principal, no thnt tho
burden on tho settlor, in tho early
stages ot development may bo as
light as possible.
Tho North unit Is considered dc
slrnblo nt the estimated cost, pro
vided Interest charges on deferred
payments do not exceed 3 por cent
to 4 per cent, and tho United States
reclamation act plan of 20 years for
repnymont Js adopted.
Tho South unit is not doslrablo at
tho present time, but with money
that does not bear Interest, as undor
tho United States reclamation net,
and with 20-year payments, It wUl
doubtless provo dcslrnblo, when tho
other units havo been dovolopcd.

plained In tho act, "Is to havo ou
