A petition is in circulation asking
that a daily mail service be installed
between Wallowa and Paradise. At

There is an effort being made also for
a rural free delivery route out of Wal
lowa east of tho Southwick place,
thence north, east and south a Sled
Springs road, then west, then south to
Pirsnip creek, and down that stream to
the valley near II. N Williams, then to
Wallowa The route would be abrut
25 miles in length and it is believed the
petition will be grunted. It will be the
Urst R. F. D. route in Wallowa county.

ing is taken:

present time there are 40 beneficial
members and 4 social members, mak
ing a total of 50 members hi all.
One mendier was nuspended for en--gaging
in the sale of intoxicating
liquor, contrary to the laws of the as
sociation. The camp has issued no-
transfer cards, and there have been no
deaths lu the camp since its organiza
tion. Ihc total amount of money received

tive council, M. W. A., to enable it to
purchase and establish, for the benefit
o' the members and relatives of the M.'
