PARK l THE PARK
TWO years ago this community was
given ten acres by the government
lor a Community pari;. Two years
have gone by and not a hand lias
been lifted to Improve in any wav.
is there tnou;;li civic pride among us
o make a start this fall. Has a park
'. valuation to the people of thi; pro
ieot? Will the future, if not now,
prove our wisdom in going forward
Instead f trading water in the
nurky darkness of the farnx r's
gloom ojt' today? Let us on Dec. Mh
cather at the school holme prepared
to put it over. Men bring your t vi.ti
ind fresno; ladies i'ie hot bun and
nteamlnf cup of cotTee. X-Tav the
land pi t pared for the spring plant
of trees. Last spring we had 2500
trees for planting. The land was
not leveled for them. If we had
planted the year we obtained the park
the trees this year would have re
warded us by their shade. Don't for
get the date, Saturday. Dec. Kth at
9 a.m. sharp. If the Weather should
prevent the next Saturday following.
A number of enterprising citizens
met last Saturday and fenced the
cemetery grounds. Lunch was served
them at the school house whjflh re
vived the waning spirits of th men
'o they were enabled to complete the
WOTll in the af'rnoon. Many more
good things could be accomplished
in just such a manner as this, for
"many hands make light vork."
About two years ago the men gath
ered and (licked up all the loose
rocks 'in iiain street We'd like to
suggest that a similar "rock picking
bee" would not come amiss again,
etpeeiajly on the side street inter
secting Main at Wicklandler's sloe.
Other Improvements might be men
tioned which could be made by a
wholesome display of Doaidman's
A number of BoardntM men went
to Irrigon Sunday to the turkey
shoot, some returning i mpty-handed
and others more fortunate. The one
having the best luck so far as we
heard was Nate Macomber who brot
home six turkeys and a duck.

held Friday night at t'e "hool
houso Last year th're wns s dearth
of articles to be sold, and this year
Uie were plent . oi imago to u
sold but no crowd to purchase, a very
small number being present. The
country store was undoubtedly the
most popular feature. Mr Job"1"" '
took ciarge of thiH and about $14
was realized. Mrs. Messenger bad
charge of the plain work table and a
great array of dresses and aprons I
were on display. Mrs. Johnion had
the fancy vork table and Mrs. Flic.k
inger the kitchen, where doughnuts,
pie, coffee and fake were served. A
iimw feature this year was the Cali
fornia Perfume Co.'s table w'.ere Its
articles were on display- perfumes
soaps, powders, shaving soaps, e"
tracts, etc. Mrs Klitz and Mrs. Hal
longer were in charge of this and s
tidy sum was realized from it.
A number of the farmers e
the project are becoming Ind'SWU
bcause of the band of range '.orsei
which persist in feeding at the ha
stacks. It is not only the amount of
hay which the hOrses consume, but so
much is trampled and wasted and
they have cause lor indignation.
"See that girl?" asked Drown.
"Yes, 1 see her. What kBOUl her?"
"That girl hits been n bridesmaid
at more than 300 weddings," said
"(Jusli, she iiiiikI keep her father

"It has never cost this girl's father
a cent," insisted Drown.
"Spring the solution. I don't begin
to get It."

Ordinary Grain Binder

The essential thing when hsPveitlni

just when the piuis are neatly ripe, for

NEW PLAN FOR TEEL PROJECT
IAY WORK OPT SUCCESSFULLY
Gov. Pi rro and Secretary of State
Koser were guests of Echo Tuesday.
Their visit was to look over the
Tael bro!tel and in company with
Ivan E Oakes of Ontario, protect en
gineer, the rtate officials were 'ak n
over the project and In the evening
a banquet was given In thrir honor.
t '''r)i the W nlci of Dro'vntton
of this proposed Irrigation diitrlet
was explained with the object (n view
of getting favorable recommendation
hv ths scip-i'ies coiTnissior f tie
state and thus make possible the
flotation of the bonds.
The new plan gives more proviso
than the original one did and It is
not at all unlikely thai the Securities
commission will O.K. the bonds.
The governor was non-committal;
necessarily so, for it is up to the
commission entirely, except, of roup o
the Influence of the executive has
some weight, naturally.
The plan submitted by Mr. Oakes
calls for a reservoir n' -" ""'fl'sfe'l
ost of approximately $100''"00, with
a capacity of 46,000 a' re fm I Wn or
ill be obtained fro Camas creek,
''able creek and HWswgy Thru a
unnei the w.-ter will be conveyed
0 Putter creek a"d down Putter
reek to the lands of tlu oro'cf.
Under the plea rugtrestsd the raw
'and will bo offrM for s-ile for 1?
er acre and earsd land at $15.
The Witter r'ght charge will he
5107.20 per acre, the cost of leveling
md seeding $2f per acre, th"se
tharges with a $2 nrgfn making a
otal cost to the settler of $150 por
i ere. The land owners will be re
Uired to sell off all but HO acres of
heir boilings as SO acres Is the max
lUin tract to he held by any one per
on, and all land must be cleared
'.nd irrigated within two years.
Mow lie Did l(
A new reporter on a dally paper
was aslgned to gather police news,
with the customary warning as to
the importance of accuracy nnd din
ger of libel suits If his statement
were not properly ouallfled tl 'he
Topwkg Capital, Hi was lo'd that
unless facts were fullv proved It wn
always safer to make use of such
temi as alleged and others similar.
It happened to be vacation season
ind the newspaper office wr short
handed, in an omsrgency 1 i ew
reporter was culled on to wrl e up a
lOCietv function, and this Is the way
'ie did II :
"A woman giving the name of .LC.
'ones, who Is reported to he one of
the social leaders of the city and
lalms to ri-Hlde at 1949 Capitol Hill
venue. Is paid to have given what Is
purported to be a reception yesterday
fternQQA. It Is understood that a
OnsidembiC number of so called
nests, reported to be ladles notori
ous In Mi. leiv circles, were present,
Mid some of them are QUOtOd as sav-
ittg they snjoyod the occaston. it is
charged thai Bower famished the ai-
leged refreshments ami Slrlngham
'be purported music The hostess Is
said to have worn a necklace of al
iens! pearls which she declares was
1 iven her by 'ier reputed husband."
The "Devttl" Makes dp
It wasn't an Oregon editor but a
printer's devil who was going thru
Ills first experience on "mnklne e "
forms. The paper was late and the
boy got the galleys mixed. The first
perl of the obituary notice of a pe-
GUBiOUS clll.en 'iad been dumped In
the forms and the next handful of
type come off a galley describing a
recent fire It read like this: "The
pall bearers lowered the body to the
grave and as it was consigned to the
BameS there were few If any regrets
for the old wreck had been an eve
sore to the town for many years. Of
course, titers was Individual loss, but
that was fully covered by Insurance "
The widow thinks the editor wrote
the obituary that way because the la
mented partner of her Joys and sor
rows owed Ii I in five yeurs' subscription.
