This Would Complete Road to Dog Mountain and Give Impetus to The Development of Big Country The Times-Herald has late ad vices to the effect that the con tract has been let for another 45 miles of railroad west from Riverside and that it is to be built at once. This would bring the road into this Valley, in fact it would likely bring it to Dor Mountain, the original objective j point. This is the persistent rumor at ! Juntura and along the line of road from Vale in. Should this be done it would transform this hie i-iinnf rv in the immediate fu ture and brinar in a larsre number I of paople who would at once be-1 gin active development of the lwuuirops It is logical to expect this as there is certainly nothing in bringing the road into the canyon I and stopping at Riverside.

The matter comes up in Portland on August 3 for consid eration and the injunction is sought on the ground that unless it is granted the complianant will suffer irreparable injury. The writer has not seen a copy of the complaint but understands the complainant will attack the constitutionality of the law and try to show the Board has no right to adjudicate the water rights o f streams. In view of former suits of a similar nature it would seem the Board has such riKht and while it will delay the matter the rights will yet be determined and the people finally know iust what they are entitled to.

This is to be a gathering of joy all Harney County. Every-body wants to see the big drill, every one wants to see and talk over the prospect of the grandest un dertaking old Harney has ever seen. The best speakers and the best singers and the beat looks, of the county will be present We especially invite Messrs F. Davey, J. Byrd, H. Levens, Cap. Gowan. Wm. Hanley and C. A.

Grease up your hack, crank up your automobile, put on your glad rags and come along. Pat Finds Big Harney Country is Prosperous The Juntura Times says: The writer has just returned from a trip of some six hundred miles through the southern end of this and Harney county, and wish to say that we found conditions in every part of the country we vis- ted in a most flourishing condi tion. Sheep men are feeling good about the prices they ob tained for their wool, and join with the cattle and horse men in saying that this is the best grass year they have ever seen since coming to the country. The trip was made by automobile, leaving Ontario on June 5th, in company with J. W. McCulloch, who acted as chauffeur of u own car, go ing out through Skull Springs, Barron Valley, Cord and Alber- son. thence south to the Nevada line and back via Catlow Valley, the P Ranch and Burns. On every hand one can see evidence of improvement and an increased area of cultivated lands. Catlow Valley is settling up with a pro gressive class of people who are making good in raising crops un dry land,, f he lower end of the famous P Ranch will soon be un der a complete system of Irriga tion aa Mr. Hanley is having canals and ditches built that will carry water out of his forty mile drainage ditch and deposit it on lands that are now covered wtyh sage brush. Several large wp- structjon pamps aye now Ufl the ground and rapid progress ia be ing made. This perhaps the cream of the entire Eastern Ore gon country, ana ww ne me granary and meat producing sec tion of the state. Uota of new land is being put under cultlva tion in Harney Valley, and crops are looking fine.

STATE AND FEDERAL IN VESTIGATION OF RABBIT State Fish and Game Commission Will Have Aid From the Government in Work of Ridding Country of Pests. Rabbits, Gophers That are Menace To Farmer to E. W. Nelson, of the United States biological survey, notified William I.. Finley, of the state fish and game commission, yes terday that the $6000 item rec ommended by Senator Chamber lain was still included in the agri cultural appropriations bill when it came out from the conference committee, says the Journal. This $6000 will be used in co operative work by the state game department and the biological survey and will incidentally put Oregon on record as being the only state, with the exception of North Dakota, that has given the federal government material assistance and entered into cooperative work of this kind. It. was largely through the efforts of Mr. Finley that the appropriation was made. Among the problems waiting to be solved and on which inteli gent action can now be taken, Mr, Finley states, are several of first importance to the homestead er. There is the extermination of jackrabbits in the eastern counties, the determination of the species of gopher that is a menace to the farmer's fields. In the past year Tillamook county hus paid out in bounties $4000 for gophers. An examination of the crops of pheasants killed in the grain lit Ids has shown their food to consist principally of insects and in only one instance was any grain found and that proved to be barley from the previous year's crop. So it may be that the pheasant is be ing wrongly accused and that his work is beneficial, not destructive There is also the census of bird life to be taken and by which it ia determined to what extent game and song birds increase under federal protection as given by the migrajory bird law re cently put into effect By mak ing close observations on specifi ed areas for a number of years it is believed that a close census can be secured. It is found that the best time to make a count on any area is shortly before and after sunrise, in the mating sea son, as at that time all the male birds are in full song and can be easily located. At the present there is a party of federal and state scientists camped on the McKenzie river engaged in ru,akjng a thorough ll survey pi fa una,! lifw of the Wil- lu,..tw, ualUu roirinn I .ni.r similar surveys will be made on the ooast and in other parts of the state, the work finally result ing in a complete hiologleal sur vey of Oregon.

A Norwegian family, the Stack lands, has led in building up a great cherry industry at an alti ude of 3,000 feet in the foothilt be Exterminated of the Blue Mountains. At this high altitude cherries, while not so large or lucious as some raised on lower levels, have remarkable keeping qualities and the output will be disposed on in carloads in the Eastern markets. O. M. Plummer. general man ager of the Pacific International Livestock Exposition, announces that the National Duroc-Jersey Record Association, of Peoria, 111., has appropriated 126 for the livestock show to be held in Port land this fall, thus placing this event in the ranks with the other large stock shows of the United States, a recognition which has not heretofore been made. That the population of Oregon is increasing very rapidly is indi cated by the fact that an unusual number of commodities have found it necessary to erect new school buildings to relieve con gestion. New schools arc being built at Amity, Molalla, Newport, Astoria and Vida, and in addition, several large school buildings will be erected in Portland before the end of the year. Within the last week " carloads of Oregon woul were shipped from Madras to Boston. The shipment aggregated 290,000 pounds and was sold at prices somewhat in advance of those of last year. Farmers Should Know Their Insect Enemies Oregon farmers must learn to know their insect enemies before they can combat them so success fully as to stop the enormous leak due to their ravages. The infor mation and material that will en able them to identify the most common and destructive pests are easily within their reach and may be had by Bimply writing for a copy of the Biennial Crop Pest Keport. issued by the Ore gon Station. A condensed edi tion of this report has also been issued by the Extension division of the Agricultural College and may be obtained by writing for "Insect Pests of Truck and Gar den Crops," to Extension Divis ion.

Dunkard Colony to Locate Homes in Central Oregon The names of more than 800 families who are interested in Central Oregon and may come there to locate were secured last week at Seattle during the na tional convention of the Dunkard Church by I. W. Gray, agent for the Oregon and Western Coloniza tion company, says a Portland paper. Mr. Gray returned from Seat tle yesterday, and in Portland on his way home to Redmond he reported that he had achieved great success in his campaign to interest the thrifty and prosper ous Dunkards, whose religion does not permit them to take up the bankruptcy law. Most of the delegates to the convention were middle aged or elderly people and Mr. Gray says that it would be a hard thing to induce them to leave their pros perous eastern homes, but he found them anxious to make pro vision for the rising generation. Many of these people expressed to Mr. Gray their desire to send the young people to the great western country. To the 800 whose names and addresses were secured, and who are located in nearly every state of the union with the middle western states predominating, literature descriptive of the Cen tral Oregon country, and particu larly of the military road grant lands that form a narrow belt across the entire state in an east erly and westerly direction, will be sent at once. Stock Men Meet at Boise and Talk Shop The executive officers of the Oregon Cattle & Horse Raisers Association met in Boise last week and explained to the rais ers of Idaho the objects of the organization and as a result it is likely the scope of its activities will be enlarged. The Capital says of the meeting in part: For the benefit of Idaho cattle and horse raisers present, Mr. Correal, tbe secretary, told of the work being done by Gerry Snow, brand inspector of the associa tion, and located at the Portland stock yards, whose duty it is to inspect the brands of all cattle and horses arriving and if the shippers cannot show bills of sale or that they are in legiti mate possession of the animals, possession is taken by the inspec tor, the animal is sold on the market and the money goes to the executive board of the asso ciation and the ownership of the animal established and the money turned over to the owner. It was reported that the brand in spector had saved the association members a goodly sum of money since taking the position. The next annual session of the association is to be held at Prine ville at which time a new name for the association is to be chos en. I'auin of Stomach Trouble.

Prof. Scudder and Possibly French of O. A. C. to Make Addresses and Inspection of Crops. Large Crowd Should Greet The Agriculturists There is a disposition upon the part of the citizens of this city not to allow anything to conflict with the big Visitor's Day pro gram to be held at the Experi ment Station tomorrow after noon, therefore there will be no baseball game as had been con templated by the boys. It is a matter of regret that Prof. Het- zcl, director of the extension work, cannot be present as it had been arranged. Prof. Hetzel writes that he is threatened with a nervous breakdown and his physician will not permit his tak ing any active work at this par ticular time. He was to have delivered the oration in Burns today but had to cancel this also. Prof. Scudder of the O. A. C. will be present and will address j the people as will also others. It ' is to be a gathering to listen and ' observe, a trip over the farm is a part of the program and The Times-Herald feels confident that nope will regret the trip who go and see what has been done on the demonstration farm. It will be a matter of education not only to the farmer but everv individ ual there, as we are all interest ed in agriculture. In view of the weather condi tions that have prevailed during the growing season this vear the crops on the Station farm will be a revelation to manv who have not been out. The work accom plished by this station has done much for the advancement of agriculture in Harney county and it is yet in its infancy so far as the real benefits are concerned. That it means the success of pro fitable farming in this big coun try all admit. The fanner no longer needs to be in doubt as to his future in the line of agricul ture as this experiment station is where things are tried out and the man who follows the advice and watches the success or fail ure of the various crops there is THE FRENCH HOTEL DAVID NEWMAN, Prop.

This meeting is preliminary, or rather just an extra, and has been arranged merely to help the farmer who can come and see and listen. Prof. Scudder is to be here on other business in connection with the work and it is also possible H. T. French, leader of the field work of the Extension service will also be present. This is not the "Round up" suggested heretofore but is a meeting that will bring results and help to stimulate interest in the big all day meeting that is planned for the latter part of this month or the first of next. The Times-Herald hopes to see not only every farmer who can possibly come there tomorrow, but also hopes to see every auto mobile in Burns out there with a load of town people who should see what is being done. Every one is sure of a welcome and they will be given an opportunity to go over the farm. A Good Investment. W. D. Magli. a well known merchant of Whitemound, Wis., bought a stock of Chamberlain's medicine so as to be able to sup ply them to his customers. After receiving them he was himself taken sick and says that one small bottle of Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy was worth more to him than the cost of his entire stock of these medicines.
