dry farming hobby of Prof. H. D,
Soudder of the Oregon Agricultural

widely through Eastern Oregon for the
past Ave years, and is beginning to see
practical rcaulta on a large scale. A
prominent wheat farmer at Ar ington
has planned to put in 160 acrea of al
alfalfa on his dry land, and has asked
the aeronomv department of the col
lege for special Instruction and for the
beat seed. Another man, one of the
larirest wheat farmers in Gilliam
County, la to put in 1,000 acres of al
falfa this soring. The great number
of letters coming to Prof. Scudder
from all Darts of eastern and central
Oreuon on thia subject indicates the
first great change for the better in dry

The Dank of Lakeview, Lakeview, Oregon
Efficiency Of Office Increased By Installation
Of One Hundred New Boxes Mails ;
Handled Very Expeditiously
The raoid growth of Lakeview is!
well attested by the increase of re
ceipts in the postoffice, aa reported by
Postmaster Ahlstrom. The receipts for
the quarter ending March I, 1912, show
an increase of practically 20 per cent
over that of the corresponding quarter
of 1911, the exact amount being XI 404
.35 for 1911 and S1650.13 for 1912. In
postal circles the Bret quarter ia always
the dullest of the year, and hence a
much greater growth ia confidently ex
pected for the three remaining quarters
of the year. All salaries and clerk hire
for the respective offices are based upon j
the receipts for the first quarter, and
aa a consequence Postmaster Ahlstrom J
will receive $100 additional for clerk
hire but no increase in salary.
Owing to the increased business Mr.
Ahlstrom haa found it necesary to in
crease the efficiency of the office, not
withstanding bia aalary remains the!
same, and consequently thia week hej
intalled 1U0 additional boxes of tbej
latest pattern, which increases the
number of call and lock boxea to 283. i
The boxea are of the combination-lock
style, and are self-lockiner, being mod
ern and up-to-date in every particular.
Tbey will prove of much convenience
to the patrona of the office, for there is
greatly increased demand for private
boxea along with the business of the
Since the change in the time of the
arrival of the train, the mails do not
reach the postoffice until after 9
o'clock, thus avoiding any neoeessity
of the distribution of mails at night,
to aay nothing of the fact that the De
partment only requires the postoffice
to remain open until 8 P. M. How
ever, the mails are distribestea early in
the moraine, and it ia generally in the
boxea by 7 o'olock, although the gener
al delivery doea not open until 8. In
thus accommodating the patrona of the
offioe Mr. Ahlstrom is entitled to much
credit, for with hia limited foroe it
would be practically impossible to give
tetter service, and his efforts are cer
tainly appreciated by all familiar with
existing conditiona

Right Retained In Case Of
Filings Made Prior To
February 3, 1911
Persona who made homestead entry
before February 3, 1911, and desiring
to relinquish the aame and still retain
their rights are permitted to do so un
der the act of February, 1911. Here
tofore it has been the custom for Con
gress to pass such acts permitting se
cond entries where the entries had been
relinquished or abandoned prior to a
certain date, but in thia instance the
date of entry and not the time of re
linquishment or abandonment ia the
time to be considered In making a se
cond application. Hence an entry is
abandoned or relinquished today or at
any time in the future, a second appli
cation will be allowed if the entry
waa allowed prior to February, 1911.
The provisions of the act referred to
where only called to the attention of
the local land office officials this week,
they having previously been under the
impression that the entries must have
been abandoned or relinquished prior
to February, 1911, before a aecond
application could be allowed.
A. L. Thornton, the popular drug
gist, has quite an up-to-date window
display, which attracts the eye of

Proposed Bills Are Heart
ily Endorsed by Lake's
Initiative petitions have been
ceived ana are being circulated for the
compromise good roads legislation
proposed by the Governor's conferenoe
last winter. There are six separate
petitions, viz; for issuance of State
Road Bonds and creation of State High
way Fund and State Road Board to
enable counties to vote, issue bonds
and to construct roads: to amend Sec
tion 10 of Article XI of the Constitu
tion regarding legislation of the limi
tations of the powers of counties to
contract debts : to amend Section 7 of
Article XI of the Constitution regard
ing the limitations of the powers ofthe
state to contract debts: to prohibit em
ployment of penitentiary convicts in
comDetition with free labor and pro
hibiting employment of county, city
or town convlcta in competition with
free labor.
These bills were exhaustively ex
amined ty a committee of the Lake
view Commercial Club composed of
prominent attorneys of Lakeview, and
were recommended by auch committee,

Dossibilities than at the High Grade
The snow is fast disappearing and
the mountains will soon be bare enough

hills will soon be alive with busy min
ers and prospectors.
It is reported that the Searchlight

ed by capitalists. It is said a big fig
ure will be paid for the properties.
These two claims adjoin the Sunshine
