HARNEY'S DREAM OF

ney county laBt Sunday, And .Mr.
Donogau brought with him tho In
formation that tho people- of Harney
county nre hooii torea1lxe the dream
or yourS, Irrigation for neanly 100,000
neroH of land In tho vnlloy.
WJiIlp In tho city Mr. Donegnn con
sulted with J. W. McCullooh of tho
(lrnt of McCullooh and Duncan who,
handled the legal phases of tho for
mation of the big district, which Is
believed, by the way, to bo the largest
single Irrigation district in Oregon.
"There 1h no limit to the benefits
that will lie derived by the irrigation
of the Harney valley," said Mr. Don
,egan. "It will mean a great deal to
Hums nnd to all thin region. Why,
wo .will he able to raise twice an
many cattle and sheop, for the range
will not be used ao long when win
tor feed CH" 06 flHd closo at hand,"
observed Mr. Douekan.
"The district may ultimately ho In
creased to 100,000 acre," snld Mr.
McCullnch, "but the men forming tho
district thought best to proceed to
build the storage reservoir on the
Sllvles und if It is found that sulllo
lent water can ho stored, there Is
plenty of land to put It on.
"Thee district will he perhaps ono
of tho least oxponnlvo ever built In
Oregon. The entire project, It Is es
timated, can ho built for less than
$30 per acre, In fact, figures are pro
seutod as low hn $20 cur acre.- On

Illologlnt Horn returned from Mal
heur county last Tuesday night hut
has again returned to that .section,
going to Vale where he expects jo
meet his chief, Ira Oabrlelsen. Later
he, will return to thwi county and proa
cute the werk of exterminating rab
bits. At present there la nothing
"doing" in that line as the weather
Ja too sprlHff like, besides the greuad
Is uncovered and the penta are not
congregate around stack yarda.
Should we have a show fall It will be
then the right time to get busy. Mr,
Horn Informs The Times-Herald that
the county court baa decided to fur
nish the poison to those who will use
It when the proper time comes, there
fore that part of tho matter need not
Interfere with wholesale distribution
of the poison when tho farmers get
ready for tho work. It han been
demonstrated beyond question that
poisoning is effective bo If the rabbits
are not destroyed It Is more or less
our own fault by not taking advan
tage of the chance.

Couhtyc'QUrt In respoot to tho noloc
tiqn of a suitable man fdr thin fluid

sion work. The court provided for
the employment of such a man und
Mr. Hnllurd came to have the neces

might look for a aultuble man for the
Iu explaining the duties or work
of nH'ch a man Mr. Ballard stated
that the state and government co
operated with each county that took
up such work and devote an equal
amount toward defraying tho expen
se. Harney county provided $2500
for this purpose In making up tho
budget and therefore thin amount will
he matched by the state, thUH giving
$5000 to thin important work during
the coming year.
Tho extension worker takes up all
agricultural problems of the county
but works under the direction of a
farm bureau, or commlttco of men
selected from farmers and ntock men
of tho county, who formulnto tho
plans. For Instance Just at present
the most Important work In that lino
would bo the eradication of pests.
Thin would not prevent his consulting
with individuals and communities on
agriculture and kindred problems.
Later he would bo valuable In con
nection with irrigation problems, In
assisting In the working out of pro
blems under the syetom Inaugurated
when the reservoir Is constructed
and "reconstruction" begins In tho
method of using wttlor. However
that might he, tho proposed ngent
will work under the supervision of
local men und whatever Is done to
ward development or demonstration
will ho sanctioned hy this committee.
The Times-Herald hh contended
for such an employo of tho county for
several yearn, In fact ever since the
plan wan first startud aud when Mr.
Hhattuck wan acting as county agent.
ThU county would be far to the good
had It continued with the plan when
It first aatrted. At any rate, that w
the opinion of men who observe what
haa been accomplished in other coun
ties. Mr. Ballard stated while convers
ing with a representative of this
paper Wednesday, that he was on
the "lookout" (or a man for thin

We want one suited to this part of

The Bureau of Markets of tho U.

What wus dono at tho Kansas City

In other cities. The course covered,

The first "morning an Intensive studr
waa made of the grade ef cattle and
hogs largely marketed through ehlp
iag aaeoclatlons. It was a b.lg sub
ject to cover In a single morning, but
the men were Intensely eager for the
facta and there was no need' for ped
agogical repetition, nor were tliora
useless questions to take up tho timo
of the Instructors,
The I; 30 o'clock session might he
called a class In applied bookkeeping.'
an tho afternoon was glvon ovr to.
accounting methods for shipping as

freight on a mixed car or came ana
pigs than ho would havo Incurred had
he beon properly Informed on the
regulations. It was pointed out that
the presenco of a few calvos In this
Hhlnmnnt of nlas renulred that the
minimum weight for a car of cattlo he
used as a basis of calculation instead
of a lower minimum which is allowed
for hogs. Notwithstanding, the total
had to be computed at the "hog rate"
which is higher than tho cattle rate.
Tho men present felt that many sin

the Hosslons more than repaid thorn

A conferonco of tho managora waa
