WINBGORDUI IP Morrow County Desert land to be Irrigated. WILL PUMP WATER 3 MILES Dalles Captallsts Will Put In Plant that Will Pump 1,800,- 000 Gallons Every 10 Hours. A company of capitalists of The Dalles baa recently been organized for the purpose of reclaiming several thousand acres of desert lands in the vicinity of Castle Rock, in northern Morrow county along the Columbia river. H. W. Bartholomew informs ns that the plans for the new irrigation enterprise have already been formulated and that work will be commenced at once. The company will put in a 6o horie power gasoline engine, which is guaran teed to pump 1,8000,000 gallons of water every ten hours. This we understand has already been purchased and the pemping plant will be installed at once. Water will be taken from the Colum bia river and forced through a 12 inch pipe a distance of three miles and to an elevation of 200 feet, and at 3rst, will be distributed over a number of desert claims owned by various parties in that immediate vicinity. We have not learned whether it ia the purpose of the company to construct reservoirs for storing tbe water, or whether it will be forced through pipes direct to each claim. The object of the company is first to astiet parties holding claims to gain till- by furnishing water sufficient to enable them to make home end im prove their property. Afterwards a well defined irrigation system will be pot in operation. In fact it is the be ginning of a system that will reclaim several thousand acres of arid land im mediately south of the town of Caatle Rock, which will be extended and en Urged as rapidly as conditions will per mit, Herbert W, and Ed E. Bartholomew have title to 7,000 acres of land in that section besides they own tbe Castle Rock town site. They are helping the scheme along by giving land free of charge to the compaoy for its pumpinn plant, and will encourage it in other ways. Irrigation by the pumping system has been a success in other sections and there ia no reason why it will not be a success at Castle Rock. Country or City Life Which? Heppner, Oregon, March ;-rAt soch anniversary times as the meetings of the first settlers, association, the society for historical research, and kindred gatherings, tending to the presentation of the early life of oar country, think people naturally compare life today with the olden time. And cot always to the advantage of the present, the tendency of the American people has long been to get away from the country with its pure air; its grata and trees and flowers and birds; its independent life; its quiet and health giving atmosphere, and live In the city where everything i in direct contrast to the country. Rut is this best? Are the advantages of city life greater than those of the country? Have the greatest men and w mien come from the country or from the city? Have the the lives which have counud most for influence been country born and bred or reared amid the noise and rush and stress of more crowded condition? Do we today find surh rosy cheeks and bright eyes among the younger generation of the crowded cities, or In the country, where early life is parsed in God's freesunshins amid the healthy and ever interesting scenes of country tnviromwnt? And yet con ditions are inch Unlay that choice be tween a country and a rity life Is not always possible so matter how strong IRRIQATI0I1DT PUE may be the preference in favor of the country. There are still most desirable sections in Eastern Oregon that are open to set tlers on tbe very easiest terms. In Morrow county for instance, where the lands are rich in timber and vast fields of coal, and productive of every crop known in the temperate region. The climate ia satisfactory to all. There has not been sufficient snow tbe past two years to have a sleigh ride, neither has the mercury dropped to zero. Cyclones and tornadoes are unknown With the advantages we now have in irrigating the sandy land along the Colombia river which will be trans formed from a desert waste into a Tin- yard, where fruits of all kinds and berries will grow to perfection, also alfalfa and vegetables of every kind. The Heppner Railroad and Coal Company has tolly demonstrated that it has large deposits of coal on its lands situated in this county, about 20 miles south of Heppner. The company has expended a large sum of money in de veloping this field and it now has the mines in working order so that a large tonage of coal can be mined daily. A railroad will be built in the spring to connect with the field. When trans portation facilities are completed and the coal placed on the market it will supply a want which this state has never been able to get heretofore. The quality of the coal is bituminous and has been tested satisfactorily on the 0. R. & N, railroad. Land can be bought here in Morrow county cheaper than in any other state in the United States, considering the climate and healthfulness and other natural advantages. The increase in land values will be greater and has been greater the past three yeara than in any other part of Oregon. The ad vac tap of boyiog cheap land in Morrow count is well worth considering by those who are desirous of a country home under the best possible conditions. Where families may be brought np away from the congested centers and yet aufficientlv near thriving cities to keep within the means of education and culture and in touch with the outside world. B. F. Swaggabt. Mammoth Fir Log. A mammoth fir log nine feet in di ameter and 28 feet long was shipped last week to the St. Louis fair. It came from Kelly Bros.' logging camp on Blind Slough, Clatsop county. It will be placed on exhibition at the St. Louis fair and will, of course, give the Easter ners some idea of the sort of timber that grows in the Oregon country. The log sent off was perfectly sound, measuring HQ inches at the butt and 95 at tbe upper end. It cantains 12, 000 fuet of lumber, board measure, and weighs 4fi,750 pounds. Tbe tree It came from was 431 years old, and stood 200 feet without a limb. Seven sections of the tree which were logged yielded 40,- 000 feet of lumber. The log is of the best fir, and oould be cut into No. 1 flooring, and sell for $30 a thousand. Says the Washington Pott: "An Ore gon man who started a newspaper 31 years ago has last retired with a fortune. It is but fair to state that he retired from the newspaper business 30 years ago," Says the Boise Capital : "A Cab ifornia court recently awarded the w idow of an editor who was shot, $17,- 780 damages " This leads a Nebraska paper to remark that when even a Cal ifornia editor is worth as much as a second-class race horse it ia evidence ol the increawd value of editors." It seems that there are thua two courses open to editors la search of money : quit the business or be shot. A Favorite Remedy for Babies. Its pleasant taatt and prompt cures have made Chamberlain's Cough Remedy a favorite with the tnoters of small chiMren. It quickly cures their cough and colds sa l prevents aay danger of patumonia or otbtr acrioni consequences. It not only cures croup, but when given as soon as the croupy couh appears will prevent lb attack. For aale by Slocum Drug Co. ranis! Most Brilliant Banquet in History of the lodge. C00D LITERARY PROGRAM The Able Address by Judge W. R. Ellis Was Full of Good Thought and Advice for Lodge Members. Doric Lodge No. ao, Knights of Pythias, entertained a number of their friends in their castle hall in this city Tuesday evening, tbe occasion being the 20th anniversary of the lodge. Elaborate preparation was every where evidence, the unanimous verdict of those present being that the event waa one of the moat brilliant ever held by Doric lodge. The splendid literary program was well received. It consisted of a pleasinir selection by the orchestra, which was to be followed by an address of welcome by G. W. Pbelpe, who was unavoidably absent, but the cordial welcome exten- ded by Hon. Henry Blackman was none the less appreciated. The song "Until the Dawn." bv Messrs Gove, Hayes, Otheo and Vawter Crawford waa a splendid number and well received. Judge W. R. Ellis delivered the ad dressed which bristled with good thought and advice to lodge members. The Jndge gave a plain talk, bat his charac teristic manner of saying pleasant things at the proper time and place, left a good impression with his audience. The song, "The City Choir," by a select choir, was not only a good se lection but w well aong, voices that compare favorably with the more cul tured being in evidence. Hon. Henry Black man's five minute talk on the early history of the order was pleasantly said and well received. "Old Kentucky Home," by a quar tette, was duly appreciated. Miss Willa Minor demonstrated to her hearers that uhe ia a reader of at tainment, her ability In thia line not being snrpaseed by the finished artist. The rendition of "Old Black Joe," by the select choir concluded the literary part of the program. Supper waa then announced from the banquet hall, and it proved to be one of the Yery enjoyable features. A more bounteous, artistically prepared! and better served spread waa never pre pared in Heppner. It consisted of everything good to eat that could be procured in the market, and arranged in a manner both pleasing to the eye and appetising to the inner man. The ladies who prepared it are to be congratulated upon their artistic ability. Alter luncheon a real cood social time was had for an hour, when all de parted with the strong conviction that they bad been very highly entertained. Spokane Sale of Shorthorns. W. O.
