Being told that Interest rates nro to

bo much better If Intorest rates nro

numos that money will continue to

of course, ho is mistaken. If tho
measure should pass, loans inn do
thereafter would have to bo at tho

would not hare to be made, nnd, with
InTestmont opportunities of every

From tho newspaper viewpoint
special Interest attaches to ono por
tion of Mr. Gollehur's remarks. Af
ter saying that the nowspapers of the

pointed out that it was not fair to
expect them to wage the battlo alone,
and this will appeal to all ns abso
lutely correct. Tho newspaper is ex
pected to tako tho lead in matters
pertaining to tho public welfare, but,
at tho samo time. It has n right to ex

Fortunately, the newspapers of

Of tho flvo different spots whoro

Facts recently brought t,o tho nt
tentlon of the public concerning the
condition of the lumber Industry of
the Northwest as a result of the re
cent Increase In freight rates servo
to bring Into clear relief Bend's good
fortuno in tho lumber companies op
erating here. They suggest, also,
tho Importance of giving any aid pos-
slblo looking toward a change in
theso rates.
Not only In Bend, but all over the
Northwest, lumber operations are be
ing curtailed because of the slacken
ing in orders noticeable since the new
freight rates went Into effect. For
tho week ending September 11, the
West Coast Lumbermen's association
reports only 782 cars of new busi
ness for rail delivery, a flguro 1500
cars below normal and 1000 cars
short of tho average for weekly new
business Immediately prior to the ef
fective date of -the emergency freight
rate increase. As a result mills ate
'down." At La Grande, wo under
stand, tho mills cutting tho samo tim
ber as in Bend, are shut down. Hero
wo have seen ono shift at n local mill
discontinued. Nevertheless, and in
Bpite of slack business, there is no
suggestion of n shutdown here, and
undoubtedly there will be none, un
less so little lumber Is moved that
yard capacity is exhausted.
Companies that can, and will, con
tinue to operate under such adverso
conditions are a big asgoj to a com
munity, and that is why we say Bend
Is fortunate. Most of our eggs are in
one bnBket, however, and if tho busi
ness interests of the town can do
anything to help keep them safe it
ehould bo dono.

Ono of tho curious and Interesting
things of this Central Oregon coun
try of which, wo believe, no men
tion has over boon made is the sign,
or plcturo, writing to bo fouud on
rock faces In various sections. Rel
ics of a distant past, what they all
mean or under what circumstances
they wero drawn on tho rocks is a
mystery. To those, however, whoso
minds travel back over tho years
when tho country was Inhabited only
by Indians, they aro sources of nover
oiidlng speculation and wonder.
Equally mystifying aro tho meth
ods used by tho Indians in making
those drawings and tho material em
ployed. As seen today they aro of a
dull red color, faded somowhat, but
in most cases othqrwlso unaffected
by tho action of tho weather. The

prints iipprotcd photographs of the
different breeds nnd types of horses,
cattle, lingH, fcheep, and poultry.
The display of such pictures on
schoolroom walls will do much, It Is
believed, to encourage the keeping nnd
breeding of well-bred htock In the

fore Breeding Season.
Ewes that havo had uddors or brok

agement where they are not marked
that they may lie Identified and thrown

times tho end of u tent Is clipped off

the successful shepherd.
