Gratification at tho substantial progress made by Dend, satisfaction with tho showing mado by his com pany , through changing war and post-war conditions, and concern over what ho looks on as an eventual complete undermining of tho com pany's Investment In Dend through tho various Irrigation development programs now under consideration, was expressed Wednesday by Kamp- stcr U. Miller, director of the Dend Wntort Light & Power Co. In a statement mado to Tho Dulletln shortly beforo leaving Dend after a wcok's visit In tho city from head quarters In Chicago, ho expressed a desire to cooporato In reaching a fair solution of tho problem. In his statement, Mr. Miller said: "I havo spent tho last ten days looking over tho gonaral conditions In Ilond and examining tho affairs of tho Dend Water, Light & Power company. I think tho peoplo of Dend havo reason for gratification at the progress tho city, has mado during recent years. Whllo thero has been no great Incrcaso in popu lation, signs of substantial, improve ment aro everywhere apparent. Tho fact that mills and other industries ara. Tunning full time, and that thero Is work for all who want it are Impressive to ono familiar with business conditions in tho cast. Rate Ktuyx 1av "I am satisfied with tho showing tbo Jlcnd 7Wutor, Light & Power company has made, considering tho turmoil and general upsetting of business conditions during and fol lowing tho war. When wo under took tho operation of this property about ten years ago, Mr. Drown, Mr. Foley and I sot for oursolvcs as a standard, tho best posslblo service at tho lowest posslblo rates. It Is gratifying to us to realize that we wero not compelled to ask for an Incrcaso of rates during or since tbo war; nlthough prices wont up by leaps and bounds all over tho United States. Our rates aro probably as low as any in tho United States, with fow It any exceptions. This Is In part duo to tho fact that wo de velop our powor in tho city of Dend; our powor plant Is In the'eenter of our distribution system. "I am of course somewhat con cerned about tho situation rogardlng our future powor supply. I find that tho Water board has granted water permits tor irrigation that will in effect destroy our power plant by taking away practically all Its wator. It Booms to permit tho taking n'way of our proporty piece meal, by tho various irrigation In terests.

Whllo wo deslro to co- opornto In every way posslblo with tho stato nnd tho trrlgatlonlsts In tho final utilization of tho waters ot tho Deschutes for tho groatest pub lic bonollt, wo cannot ot course sub mit to any -such undermining ot our investment. Until tho mattor Is stralghtonod out by making daflnlto provision for ropnylng ub for tho proporty which It Is proposod to destroy It will bo impossible for us to secure additional money tor tho construction ot a new plant.

Farra management, tho Importance of di versification in Central Oregon, co operation between farm and city, stock feeding, range rehabilitation, boys' and girls' club work, livestock diseases, and methods of rodent con trol were among tbo subjects de veloped during the first thrco days of the week. Sessions are continu ing in the circuit court room in tha court houso building. Tho romance ot natural things, the thrilling side ot farm and country life, and the bright sidq even ot dis ease and adversity, are to bo sensed In the address of W. H. Lytle, who spoke Monday afternoon. Ho did not follow a set speech, but rather took up the diseases of stock as they were brought up by those who bad actual problems in combating them. Grub Make Trouble Catarrh, a common disease of sheep feeding in corrals during tha winter. Is known In other loeallUes as "grub In the head," which Is mora descriptive; for the dlscaso is a lar val growth of the sheep botfly, tha eggs being laid In the summer and becoming attached to the animal's nose membrane. They grow large during the winter, producing the ca tarrhal Irritation. Holes bored In logs are filled with salt for tho sheep, and coal tar Is spread around the bole so that the sheep will get it on his nose, said Lytle In describing the cure. The tar acts as a nose balm; and is of fecttv whether tho.trouble Is a true catarrh or the grub described. The cure for hoot rot, said LyUe, Is to turn tho sheep out so that tha rotted portion of the hoof will wear off. Then tho diseased animal should be run through a trough con taining a' dip compounded ot S per cent carbolic add, 3 per cont of for maldehyde and 92 per cent water. If the animal Is too lame to bo turned out, a knife may be used in cutting away the rotten part, beforo tho dip ping. Goiter Cure Discovered Goiter, occurring In human beings as well as among sheep, cattlo and particularly goata, in higher alti tudes, Is most frequently caused by lack ot mineral In tho water and food. How a euro tor It .was discov ered is interesting. It was noticed that deer and othor wild animals were not afflicted with goiter. Tho only thing tho wild life bad which the tame animals did not, was the use of the salt licks far up In tha timber. Investigation of tha salt licks showed that they containod a, percentage ot iodine. Iodine was ac cordingly painted on tho backs of the animals, and the goiter tendency disappeared. Iodlno was also found to bo a euro for the disease In hu man beings. Poison Plunts Many Lytle showed speclmons of wild onion, lupine, wild parsnip, larkspur and other poisonous plants occasion ally found on tho rauges and In the pastures ot Central Oregon. The only antldoto for most ot thorn Is potassium permanganate, tho amount which a fifty cont piece will hold bolng mixed In a pint ot wator ;Xor cattlo, and all that a ten cont "pleco will hold tor sheep, as a drench. Tho stiff lamb trouble Is almost entirely due to these poisons, said Lytlo. Lupine Is a poison only whon overripe, which occurs in a wet au tumn, tho, seed, in the form of, a beau, being poisonous.
