The tonsorial artists of-tur town have
a very unique display in the front
window of their shop. A large vat was
obtained and placed in proper position,
the city water works were next brought
into service with a fountain attachment
which is covered by a large glass globe.
The vat contains ferns, mosses and
other water growth while the water is
the home of some very fine specimens
of mountain trout.
It is quite a novel way to display
Wallowa county's fishing industry In so
unique a way and many guests of Hotel
Enterprise find it a pleasure to gaze
npon the ' speckled beauties. The
owners of the shop are very original in
their means for display. The Interior
of the tonsorial parlor Is decorated with
stuffed birds' animals and a splendid
collection of guns, relics and ..Indian
Visiting Members A.F.&A.
M. Gather In New Hall.
On Saturday evening the new I.O.O.P.
hall of Joseph was a scene of gaiety and
cheer. Visiting Masons from various
points throughout the county gathered
to warm the hall and bid adieu to their
esteemed brother and two sisters, Mr &
Mrs J D McCulley and daughter Kulsr.
There was work in the third "degree
but after its conclusion the parties were
fully repaid bf a bounteous repast pre
pared by the Joseph Masons and Stars.
Many members from Enterprise secured
a driver with a large van and went en
masse returning .in the "wee sma'
hours". All report a splendid time but
they regret to loose their old time
friends J. D. McCully wife, and daugter
Eula who depart for Iloood River soon.
In houor of Mr McCully we copy
the following from the Joseph Herald.
It is with regret we .announce the
removal next Monday of Mr, and Mrs.
J. . McCully and family from our
midst to Hood River. "In 1881, Mr.
McCully bought an interest in F. D.
McCully 's general merchandise . store
and continued a partner in the business
until 1884 when he withdrew from the
firm ami left Joseph. He returned to
Joseph in 1889 and again bought in
with F. D. McCnlly. Shortly afterward
the F. D. McCully lompany was organ
ized and J. D. McCully is still a member
of that firm, lie always took a promi
inent part iti church us well as city
affairs and has held every office in the
town of Joseph except tnat of recorder.
He, also, can point v 'Mi pride to his
record In helping to bring the Joseph
public school to the high standard that
it now maintains, having been a school
director tor the past 17 consecutive
years. Not only will J. D. be missed
but also Mrs. J. D. McCully and miss
Eula who have always taken a very
prominent part in church and social
functions. The Herald joins their
many friends in wishing them health
and happiness in their new home.
New Stock Arrives
Owing to the great demand for harness
and leather goods our local dealer, L,
Berland, hag received an addition to
his stock which is certainly second to
none. His lines are complete and with
new stock constantly arriving his
patrons are certain to get what they
need in his line.
Burnaugh & Mayfield the popular
drug firm, were the receiptants of a
large shipment Monday morning.
The E. M. & M. Co., W. J. Funk & Co.,
and all other firms are now laying in
their fall and winter goods. The roads
are excellent and freighters bring arge
tonnage each trip.
New Furniture And Fixtures
For Fraternal Building
As the fraternal building is rapidly
nearing completion. The board of
trustees will hold a meeting this week
to select and purchase furniture and
fixtures appropriate to . adorn the
interior of the best lodge room in the
metropolis. No expense will be spared
as tne nest oi everything will be pur
chased by the trustees.
The building is being flushed on the
outside now while the masons are
completing the interior finish. Painters
are putting the colors on the outside
wood work but will not adorn the
interior for a short time. Much work
still remains, but it will be speedily
accomplifhed. The banquet room is
splendidly arranged, in fact every
convenience has been planned for
throughout, so when finished, the
Fraternal Building will be a credit to
the entire county yet more eapecially to
the orders who undertook and carried
into execution their plans.
Enterprise is to be fully compli
mented in having so loyal an segreg
ation of lodge members that are always
ready to do their share and more to
improve their town and the county too.
The ball will probably be' finished in
time for Hallow'een festivities. - ,..

The railroad situation in Wallowa
county is getting better each day and
the several crews on the rock work
will soon complete the contract. A
spur is now receiving attention which
taps the Lbokinglass country. This
will ,be used as a logging road but will
not deter the laying of steel on the
Wallowa-Joseph extension. It is
officially known that trains will be run
to Wallowa by New Years and if nothing
to the contrary transpires Enterprise

Little Snow In . Mountains.
The mountains to the south of town
are very free from snow and in fact very
little snow remains on the peaks. The
past winter did not give as solid a snow
covering as usual so the hills are bare.
The sunsets however are beyond descrip
tion, their grandeur exceeds that of the
farfamed Matterhorn and Alps. One
must see Wallowa county from Enter
prise at all seasons of the year to fully
appreciate the beautiful surroundings.

Plan Extra Good Fair
$30,000 to Be Offered' as Premiums
and Purses for the Races.
Portland Sept. 8, W. II. Downine. of
Salem, president "of the State Fair As
sociation, was in the city yesterday in
the interest of the Stute Fuir to be hold
at Salem from September ltt to 21, in
clusive. Mr. Downing says that the as
sociation expects to hold the best fair in
the history of the state and that 130,000
is offered in premiums for exhibits and
purses for the races. For the speed
events alone on the race track $15,000
is offered to the winning horses.
There will be two bin racing events
on Wednesday, the 2:14 trot, for
which a total of 5000 is hung up, and
on Thursday (Portland day), he 2:00
pace, which $5000 is offered. Tim
Southern Pacific has made a round trip
rate of $1 on Thursday (Portland duy),
and it is expected that many 'Portland
people will take advantage of the rate
to visit the fuir.
Mr. Downing says that since the lust
fair the association has expended $23,
000 in new stock stables, there being
now 13 of them, 200 feet long, with a
width of from 30 to 94 feet. From the
fact that the fair is a week luter thun
usual and the hop harvest a week
earlier, it is expected that fewer people
will be hop picking and that conse
quently the attendance at the fair will
be the largest in its history.
Union Services Last Sunday.
Last Sunday morning services were
held in the Presbyterian Church, Kev.
Tom pel ton of that church preaching the
sermon. He spoke on the subject of
"Improving the Golden opportunities"
and spoke in part as follows: "In this
life we are always looking for barguins,
in other words, the merchant socks
where he may make the bust deal in
purchasing his goods; the housewife does
likewise, and so ull along the line thus
improving their opportunity to secure
the best goods for as reason a bio a sum
as possible. Paul enjoyed iiis opKjr
tunity in winning souls for God, and
we as true christians should never let a
chance pass whereby we could help
someone to a better and truer way of
living. Then tho right method of help
ing people should always be used, for if
this is not the own opportunities in that
line may be lost, and the person we
wished to help, hiudored. Life is short,
spring lias passed and the long w inter
is coming, the needs are great, and the
workers few. I emplore. you to improve
the opportunity God has given you, and
do good to the greatest number pons lulu
ere it is too lata."
A very touching solo was sung by
Mrs. Tonipilton, and was in line with
the sermon. The choir rendered several
