If any western traveler in these
economical days pots an idea
that things "come high" or that
he is being "held up" when he
trios to get a square meal in ex
change for a lot of hard earned
money, he'd better read the menu
and prices, below. Then he wijl
cheer up. Also, he'll be glad he's
living in 1911, in Oregon, and
not in 1840, in California, when
and where this bill of fare was
in actual use at a hotel in a town
near the gold diggings.

Fire broke out in the large feed
barn owned by Matt Kulesch, at
Redmond last Wednesday night,
and in a short time the building
and the blacksmith shop adjoin
ing were burned to the ground.
For a time the large livery
stable of Mr. Kulesch next to
the blacksmith shop was also in
danger of being burned down,
but as there was no wind, the
building was saved.
The fire broke out in a burst of
flames in the upper part of the
feed barn where the hay was
stored, and in less than five min
utes the whole building was en
veloped in fiames.
In the blacksmith shop a large
quantity of dynamite caps were
stored, and when the fire reached
these there was a continuous
explosion, though no danger re
sulted. S. R. Snider's restaurant and
the Henry & McFee commissary
building across the street had a
narrow escape from burning and
were only saved by heroic work
on the part of volunteer firemen.
This is the second and largest
fire Redmond has had, and had
there been any wind at the time
the chances are that a large part
of the business section of the
city would have been burned
Mr. Kulesch had $2500 insur
ance on the burned building and
The origin of the fire is not
known. The chemical engine did
good work in assisting in saving
the livery stable. Spokesman.
