REPBCTrULLY, J. W. & M. A. ROBINSON & CO. GENERAL MERCHANTS, MADRAS, oREGp MADRAS WINS PRIZES WATERMELONS CAPTURE BLUE RIBBON? E?chl9ltj Fropi Dry Farrns J9 Flrsjt At Pedmond Madrae Sprinter Win Ji FooJ facea, The irrigators did rot have things all their own way at the Redmond Pair, last week, as is testified to by a couple of blue ribbons which were brought back from the fair by a resi dent of this neighborhood. W. IL Stunehocker, who took a load of watermelons raised by him on his ranph four miles northeast of this place to the Redmond fair for the purpose of selling them, entered liis mel ons in competition with those grown on the irrigated lands of the Redpiond district, and won all of the prizes for which, he competed. In the exhibit for largest melon he had two en tries, and he carried off both first and second prizes. He also carried off first prize for the best three watermelons. These were the only classes in which he competed, and he was quite pleased with the showing 'the melons from his dry farm made in competition with irri gation grown melons. All who attended the Red mond Pair from this neighbor hood report that, the exhibits of grasses and grains from the irrigated lands were excellent and gave some idea of the fu ture of that district as an agri cultural center when it should all be under ditch. The speci mens of wheat, oats and alfalfa were especially good, while specimens of sugar beets grown (here indicate that tlie sugar manufacturing industry may be an important factor in the fu ture prosperity of that locality In addition to the blue rib hons which Mr. Stonehocker rook, the Madras boys carried off the purses in tue loot races. Ben Wilson and Tice Loucks, Jr., of Madras, won firat and second in the 100 yard sprint. and Ed Wilson won the sack i ace of 75 yards. building, on tbo north side.

NEW BUILDINGS IN MADRAS Numerous New Structures Adding To The Growth of The Town. The small store building erected by (J. L. Harpham on his lot on tlm west side of Main street is all completed except painting and papering. It will be occupied by the post office us soon as completed. A. Zell, of Prineville, is build iug a small dwelling house on his lot back of the old Malloy bujlding The dwelling will be 20xS7 feet in diriiension.

Surveyors will shortly com mence cross-sectioning the pro posed extension of the Great Southern Railroad from Dufur to Tygb, a distance of SO miles. The line is in operation from The Dalles to Dufur, SO miles, but the plan is to push it through to Bend, says the Port land Telegram. The officials of the line expect to have the extension com pleted next year. They report that every warehouse on the road ia filled to ovpr flowing with grain, and much of it is being piled in the open, as the facili ties are inadequate, a propo sition has been made that the Oregon Portage Railway be ex tended from the Big Eddy to a connection with the Great Southern, a distance of about a mile, and this would give the Portage Railway a line into The Dalles, so freight could be loaded directly aboard steam era bound for Portland. In re turn the Great Southern would have the advantage of connect ing with the portage. The question has arisen as to the legality of suoh operation in virw of the fact that the state owns the portage, and this mat ter will have to be disposed of before operations can be entered into. MURDER AND ASSAULT TERflJfLE filjfc( (JEAR PjllNEVILLE en JEef la Shot Ari r)stantly Killed By Fred Shepgara', Who Then Cfrnlnally As saying J'5 Wl'- WILL BURN HAYCREEK COAL Cramer & Stevens, of this place are going to Use ttaycreek coal for fuel during the approaching Winter, the test which they inade.with the Hay- creek coal recently having proved satisfactory in every respect. They burned enough of it in their heating stove to be convinced that it will answer nicely for fuel, and they are now malting arrangements to have their Win.tera supply brought over from the mines. The coal ia said to give off an unusual amount of heat, the only objectionable feature to it as a fuel being the fact that it eaves considerable ashes. Haycreek coal costs $3 per ton at the mines, and even with this tremendous charge at the mined, it cau be delivered in Madras now for about $7 per ton. At this price it is. said to be about ohS'third cheaper than burning juniper wood at $4.GQ pet bord, the price of wobd rady toi ; the stove.
