large cities are conducted. Mr. Price
Is an expert meat cutter and Mr. Ho
man did the outside work, but both
men have been 111 for several months
and are compelled to retire to en

Combes Is one of the best known
and liked men in the city and is
noted for strict attention to business.
He wilt keep up the reputation of the
shop for good meats. O. H. Test,
who has been acting as cutter during
the llluesg of Mr. Price, continues
with Mr. Combes.
The Combes blacksmith shop and
tools was sold to T. R. Aklns, who
owned - the ground, and he in turn
sold the tools and leased the shop to
I. N. PItzer, the well known black
smith, and who is known to have no
superior at the blacksmith trade in
this county. Mr. PItzer will move
the shop he recently built to the
rear of the Combes Bhop and use it
for a wood working shop. .

. DAIRYING DID NOT PAY.
(From Jensen's Dairyman.) '
A Nebraska subscriber tells bow
dairying Js. done fn that sta,te. He
saye; "A few years ago a neigh
bor of mine had a few native cows.
He said he didn't believe there was
anything in the dajry business, but
he was willing to give it a fair trial.
He bought a separator, a shotgun,
a running horse, a saddle, a Here
ford bull, and two gallons of. booze
and was loaded for, the jlalry busi
ness. It Is nsedless to say that
he proved ' conclusively in a very
short time that the e was nothing
in it." The statement that dairying
does not pay as a rule comes from a
class of farmers who have not giv
en the bu3ines3 a fa r trial. When a
man qay dalr. Ing does not pay it
Is certain that he does not know
the da'ry busnoss and equld not
make it jay if he wojld. There is,
however, encouragement for such a
man, Inasmuch as there are numer
ous god t'a'.ry papers at small cost
atid bulletins on dairy subjects to
be had free. If the man who honest
ly wants to make a profit from his
dairy herd will set about to learn
bow the pro'lts are made, he will
succeed, and In ' dqlng so will be able
to rea'lze a profit from his dairy
In the proportion to the intelligence
used Jn he wFk,

Ifi COUNTY SEAT
I WORKING ON FOUR BIG STRUC
TURES BESIDES RESIDENCES
Building operations are under way
In earnest in Enterprise this week.
Ground was broken Tuesday for
Lltch's big s'one business block on
Main street, 40 men are working on
the court house, . the everlasting
concrete walls of the wool growers
warehouse are slowly rising and
work on Burnaush & Mayfleld's
jtone wareroom will be in progress
oefore the end of the week. S. R.
Haworth, the courthouse contractor,
will also erdot the LItch and Bur
naugh bdlldlngs of the Bo'wlby stone.
In addition several new residences
ire going up and a dozen more will
be started as soon as the lumber
z&n be had. Haworth is shipping
in lumber from La Grande, receiv
ing a car load Monday.
ANOTHER LIE NAILED.
The . spita of the Joseph Herald
or some parties in Joseph against
Enterprise has bean vented all win--er
and spring on the woolmen for
deciding to build their , warehouse
in this city. It took a particularly
Icious turn last weak In stating the
woolgrowers warehouse had bean
condemned by the railroad officials.
There Is not one word of truth in
he article, and the stockholders, com
posed of many of the leading wool
jrow'ers of the county, are justly
indignant at Its publication. One of
hem telephoned Engineer Brandon,
who was with the officials when
:hey Inspected : the railroad last
week. He said It was a "lie made
Jut of whole cloth." The officials
never looked at the warehouse, and
Mr. Knapp, the contractor, says they
lid not even stop.
The editor or. tMs paper in com
pany with Mr Brandon watched
the progress of the. work on the
warehouse for some time Friday. Mr.
Brandon, . who had much experience
in concrete work, was strong In hla
praise of the building and said It
would be the finest thing ' of the
kind on the O. R. & N. road.
The concrete wa'.ls are strqnger
than ir built, qr granite, twice as
thick, and the longer thiy stand the
itronger they will be. Concrete Is
the only absolutely fireproof build
ing material, and further it kesps
out heat or cq'.d better than any
other. The advantage of this during
-he hot days when wool is stored is
apparent to every experienced wqql
grower. It wV. save . hundreds of
dollars qf shrinkage.
