Wallowa. Sept. 18. (Special.)
The tentative schedule for the new
train over the extension provides for
it leaving La Grande at t a. m., and
arriving at Wallowa ,. between 11 a.
m. and 12 m.; returning leaves Wal
lowa at 1 p. m. The stage company
has made arrangements with the
,-allroad by which the" latter brings
the mail to Wallowa, until such time
as the postoffice department decides
the matter of turning the contracts
aver. It Is rumored the stage com
pany will buy an automobile stage
for passengers and mail between Wal
lowa and Joseph. It would be con
venient' if not. profitable even after
the railroad la completed ' clear
H. H. Weatherspoon, agent of the
O. R. N at Elgin, stated Wednesday
that he had not yet received the rate
schedule, though It has been filed
with the state railroad commission
and the Interstate commission. It Is
not likely any freight will be sent this
tide of Elgin for a week or two, as
there are no facilities for handling it
it Wallowa. '-. -
The temporary bridge across the
river at Wallowa was completed Wed
nesday, and tracklaylng this side be
gan today. The word of Chief of
Construction Brandon Is that the
work will be pushed with all possible

reach Enterprise by October 10, but
the conservative estimate is October
15. The Y at Wallowa was finished
Wednesday and the major parf of the
material camp has been movvj there
.rorn Anthony. , ,
The worst part of the track on the
extension is between Elsln and the
mouth of the Wallowa river, and Su
perintendent Buckley has recom
mended that $15,000 be expended that
it may be made eafe for heavy freight
ind passenger traffic.

worth of Electric Bitters as a general
family remedy, for headache, bilious
ness nnd torpor of the liver and bow
els Is so pronounced that I am
prompted to say a word In Its favor,
for the benefit of those seeking relief
from such afflictions. There Is more
health for the dlgerUve organls In a

" In case of stomach and liver trou
ble the proper treatment Is to stimu
