"JAMES BOYS IN MISSOURI.1
At the Frazer, Friday Evening,
"The James Boys In Missouri,"
which will be presented In this city
at the Frazer opera house, Is one of
the best drawing attractions of this
class now being presented on the
American stage. It has scored a great
success In tho recital of the deeds of
these world-famous outlaws, present
ing It with all tho spectacular effects
necessary to make one understand tho
many daring deeds and narrow es
capes of tho James Boys, through all
of their most famous exploits. Re-
cently tho records of the local thea
ters where this play has been seen
were broken by the Immense crowds
which witnessed tho performance of
tbls wonderful portrayal of historical
events. The play takes the James
boys from the time when they began
their career during tho civil war, to
tho time when Jesso was shot down
by Bob Ford, a former member of his
band, who had entered his homo in
tho dlsgulso of a friend. U Is a play
which cannot fall to interest those
who like Incidents in which there is
plenty of action and excitement. A
romantic lovo story is also nicely told
uuring tno action of tho piece. John
Abbott and Harriett Lee. figure prom
inently in the case and tho company'
is otherwise largo and competent.
Athena, Ore, Nov. 15. Athena Is
one of the best business points in the
county. She has her splendid town
organization, her good schools, Is a
great wheat shipping point, but her
local ouslness institutions nre on Jiwt
as high a standard. This may In
part be acounted for by reason of tho
wonderful country from which nho
has to draw her trade. Every inch
of the country for many miles In
every direction Is a producer. Near
ly every citizen Is well to do. The
lands are practically Tree rrom mort
gages and the citizens are free from
debt. Trade at Athena Is practically
on a cash basts.
Then Athena has two railroads, tho
O. It. & N. and V. & C. R. systems.
The later road Is a branch of tho
Northern Pacific, nnd with these two
great systems at her door she may
count on the very best service in the
way of transportation. Thv town Is
about 20 miles from Penueton, and
although surounded by the prosperous
towns of weston. Helix and Adams,
she claims not to suffer from the com
petition. Many of her business instl
unions are conducted on a largo
scale, some of them rivaling tho
larger cities, both as to size of stock
and modern arangement.
She also has one of the first evi
dences of a prosperous town and a
wide-awake comunlty in the form of a
first-lass weekly newspaper, The
Athena Press' Is far above tho aver
age, It is lu its fifteenth volume and
is ably edited and managed by F. B.
Boyd, a practical nowspaiier man of
ability and experience. Its editorials
are timely. ita news features are
modern and its patronage ts good.
Churches and Lodges.
Athena has four churches, owned
respectively by the Methodists, Bap
tists, Christian and Catholics. Th
Christian church building now under
construction is ono oi the finest ed!
flees of the kind in tho state.
The Masons, Odd Fellows, Knights
of Pythias, Woodmen, Workmen, Red
Men and Maccabees all have lodge
membership. The Odd Fellows
Knights of Pythias, Woodmen, Work
men and Maccabees have auxiliary
lodges for the ladies. Thoy are known
as tho Rebekahs, itathbone Sisters
