NATIONAL IRRI GATION CONGRESS Less Than One Month Until the Congress Will Be Convened in the City of Spokane. WILL ECHO BE REPRESENTED? Board of Control Offering Every In dacement to Secure Proper Partic ipation Will Attract Attention to Echo flake i Good Display. In less than one month the National Irrigation Congress will be convened in the city of Spokane. Now will Echo be represented in the Congress? What are we doing to make our presence felt? What plans are being made to advertise this community to the hosts which will attend the Congress? These are questions which every loyal citiz .n of Echo should be asking himself. A month is a very short time in which to ans wer these questions creditably. The Board of Control at Spo kane has offered every argument and inducement to secure our proper participation and to have us realize our really great op portunity to place before the eastern visitor the splendid ad vantages of our section. They have asked us to send our band and a ami ching club, and have even offered under fair condi tions to refund the railroad fares of the band members. The Board of Cont rol urges that we make the inarching club as unique as possible. Why? Not to attract attention to Spokane but to Echo. It is not merely the onlooker and visitor at the Congress who will be impi eased by our display if unique and attractive. If we do the thing right our success will be heralded over the entire country by the scores of press correspondents repres e n t i n g every important daily who will be present on that occasion, As John S. Hughes, field rep resentative of the Hoard of Con trol, said while here: "No community can in this day live to itself. Its interests are wrapped up with those of every other community in the section of the country where it is placed. No city realized this more than Spokane. Everything trary is of course equaliy true, of amusements which can prop If we can induce you to grasp erly be called a bargain counter your opportunity to appropriate entertainment, edification and the advertising possibilities of amusement.

Also the construction of two dwellings, under the Furnish-Coe project, are under way. One of the dwellings is N. D., and the other for William Shrump, of Laramore, N. D. The buildings at Stantield will be occupied as soon as com pleted. VISITINGJN ECHO. Mr. and Mrs. Z. T. Herndon, of Lodi, Cal., arrived in Echo Sunday on a v'.sit to relatives and friends. Mrs. Herndon is a TWO DIG COMBINED SHOWS ARE HEADED THIS WAY The Hjjenbeck-WiUirt Showi Are Fijht- laf the Qrcvi Trust Many of our readers will re gret that such a combination of famous shows as the Hagenbeck Trained Wild Animal Exhibition and the Great Wallace Shows cannot be brought to this place, and yet they will be pleased to learn that it is to exhibit at Pen dleton on July K5. Some people may have lost the habit of going to a neighbor ing city to see a circus for the reason that they think all shows are alike. This will not apply to the Hagenbeck- Wallace Show? When operated under different proprietorship each of these shows was in a class distinct from any of the other tented shows. Now that they are com bined and the public can sec both th famous and sensational per formances of the wild boasts of the Carl Hagenbeck Shows and the exclusive features of the three-ringed exhibition of the Wallace Show for one price of admission, it is expected that an unusually large number of ieo pie of this community will at tend the exhibition at l'endleton on July 10. Those people who have at tended any of the great "World's Fairs" may have seen the Hagen-1 beck Trained Wild Beasts, but' most of our readers have never ! which s( en them.

CARL ANDERSON INSANE. Carl Anderson, employed on the ranch of Frank Sloan at Stantield, became violently in sane Monday night.
