mis hi Hums (lurhiK the week in
.niipany with H. F. Johnson, the
L.ili-s agent In this territory. Whllo
the city Mr. Davidson had a talk
with State Knglneer Lewi, respect
ing Irrigation posalbllltea but the
writer does not know what the Im
mediate results will be of thin eon-
renoe. Hi' doea know, bow-
ver, that Mr. Davidson has offered
dike $176,000 worth of bonds to
rf't tho Warm Springs Irrigation nro-
i i under way over In Malheur
unity on condition that those Inter
till lornlly will see t lint h like
nniint is sold to insure the eninple-
; mi of the reservoir. This project
110 more feasible or of greater pos-
hilltlM than th Sllvies Valley pro-
. I. yet wv allow loral fights to
keep us from fatting this under way.
Mr. DtrMaen asked tin- writer If
Mitliiiig eould not be done here in
ie way of starting the reclamation
i some additional tuiul under the
l-ilvies Valley reservoir project and
t was referred to some of the men
' lio are In a position to help toward
i' M an end. The Times-Herald has
i d Its influence for years and years,
irnished its space, given its dollar-
. ml other aid is still doing It In
.id but doesn't seem to get far.
lie fact is that the men who have
within their power to accomplish
iiis great benefit are not doing what
they should to hasten the result. It
i not to their credit that this pro-
i i and the retarded development of
'n Mg country has been thUH delnv-
il. If suih men as Davidson. Mauley
nd the Pacific Livestock Co. would
illy get together and lend their In-
luence and backing to such a pro-
i i it would soon be an established
During the recent tour of Mr linv--M
and Mr. Johnson a large area
' ".razing land was disposed of to
ical stockmen and while In this
li mity Mr. Johnson had Knglneer
''aulkner out with -some of the pur-
I ,iers to establish their corners In
r.lrr that they may fence their hold-
uffs, This is the custom of this coin-
.11 not to only run out the corners
f the land but also to furnish an
bstruct of title with each deed.
The matter of range lands being
wned by stockmen Is becoming an
important part of stockraising In this
nuntry. Many of the sheep men are
living grazing lands and while they
lo not always fence It like the cattle
men they guard It with such care that
he stock that is simply turned on
In- public range is not allowed on It,
Mius cutting down the area over
vliiih stock may graze. When the
land la fenced It further diminishes
the area and if the enlarged home-
'.il lauds should be designated
within the near future it Is really up
to the stockmen to run Just what
lock he can feed and pasture upon
own premises and men addition-
he nay gel through the forest
So Important has tbla range con

rhe company has made very attrac
'iw prices and terms for this charac

lie taking advantage of them.

Whllo In conversation with this
aentclninii It was learned that Clar
ence Cary had 400 sacks of potatoes
at his ranch on Crane Creek and that
he could find no sale for them. Later
the writer had a talk with Mr. Cary
and found he had been out trying to
market them but found no demand.
He eould ship them to Texas but
upon investigating the price found
after the transportation expenses to
gether with getting them on the train
with sacks etc., that he would not
even realize the worth of the sacks
at tho close of the transaction, so
decided the only thing to do was to
leave them In the bins h! home. These
:ir good potatoes and should not be
a'lovved to decay wheii they might
he used for seed. Mr. Ciir slated he
hud fed some lo his cattle with good
results but that this was not practical
at this season of tin year when his
stock were out on range grass. He
will sell these potatoes at 76 Ctntl
per hundred pounds at his ranch.

Compelled to adjust our Iiuhjiiohh accordingly.

jn holding the Jobber to a cash or a ten day term,
likewise the jobber is demanding fash from the re

the retail merchant must get the cash for Ihh
