containa one of tbe aeven wondera of
Central Oregon, tbla ia the hole in tbe
ground two milea Northwest ot Fre
mont. Ibis hole ia over one thousand
feet deep and te round and one mile
acrosa. If the entire Descbutea River

weeka to All it.
Four milea thia aide of the Summit

natural reservoir equally aa large, tbe

We bave been told that the govern
ment haa already made two aurveya
from the Deachutea by these natural
reservoirs to our valley and that a reg-
olation grade waa tound over the
Summit with eighteen feet to apare
and it could be out much lower by a

whole thing waa feaaible. but at that
time, which waa before tbe valley
waa Battled, there were not enough
people in the valley to make It pay,

ment to make thia use of all these
toings and make tbla a great valley?
Hopgrowers in Oregon tbla year are
enjoying tbe unusual combination of
big eropa and blgh pricea, the yield

ever bad and the market la advancing
at the rate of one to two cents per
day. Tbe demand at tbe preaent time
la largely from Europe, English buy

up while tbe price ia within reaaon. So
far,' American ouyera are making little
effort to buy, although it la known
that many of tbem bave contracted

gon's crop ia probably the best of any
bop growing aectlon of tbe world, and

pounds below the averege annual con
sumption, the only worry of the Ore

to sell too soon. It ia freely predicted
tbat tbe prloe will go above 80 cents
