proper officials without further delay.

Morning Motor-From Independence
Will Connect With Portland
Train at Dallas.
Through the enterprise of President
Hirschberg,of the motor company, the
people of Independence and Mon
mouth will hereafter be able to visit
Portland and return home the same
day. Two days are required for the
journey at prcsont, but sucii will not
be the case after next Monday, when
connection with the morning train at
Dallas will begin.
The motor will depart from Inde
pendence daily at 6 a. m. and from
Monmouth at 6:15 o'clock, reaching
Dallas at 6:40 and connecting with
Traiu 5 on the Yamhill division, which
departs from Dallas at 7 o'clock and
arrives in Portland at 10:15. On the
return trip the passenger leaves Port
land at 4:15 o'clock in the afternoon,
and by the same route reaches Inde
pendence at 8 :15. The new time card
will go into effect, Monday, March 11.
The morning motor will leave Dallas
for Independence daily at 8 :30 o'clock,
except on Sunday, when it will leave
at 6 :55. This change will be greatly
appreciated by the traveling public,
as the motor will connect with the
Corvallis train at Independence.
The people of Independence and
Monmouth have for years been
clamoring for a train service that
would enable them to visit Portland
and return home the same day. Mr.
Hirschberg has solved the problem
for them by putting on the early
motor, and has, at the same time, im
proved the service for the people of
Dallas by giving them direct train
service to Corvallis and all southern
points on the East Side.
In addition to connecting with the
Corvallis train at Independence, the
morning motor will also connect with
the daily morning boat for Salem.
The afternoon boat from Salem will
arrive in Independence in time to en
able passengers to take the evening
motor for Dallas. Tickets for the
round trip between Dallas and Salem
will be placed on sale in Dallas next
Monday at $1.50.
Concerning the new schedule, Wil
liam McMurray, general passenger
agent of the Southern Pacific Com
pany writes : "I am glad indeed that
satisfactory arrangements have been
made to give the people of Inde
pendence this improved service. You
may rest assured that this depart
ment will do everything possible to
make the new service a success in
every respect."

A Competent Opinion.
I want to say that the chorus is
especially good and the solo parts
well taken in "Belshazzar," to be pre
sented in Dallas on Friday evening.
It is simply wonderful how perfectly
an amateur chorus can be drilled in
so short a time by Prof. M. E. Robin
son. The performance will be a
delight and a surprise to all who
attend. No one can afford to miss it.
The solo work, part songs, choruses,
acting, costuming all la exceedingly
good. R. A. HERITAGE.

Electricity for Lighting
Is only expensive to people who are
wasteful and careless. To you, who
are naturally careful, it does not
come high. ,
It la economical because It can bo quickly turned off wnen n6t needed.
With gas or kerbsene there lathe temptation to lot light burn when
not needed to save bother of lighting and adjusting. In some homes
the electric light bills amount to only one or two dollars per month.
You can probably get soma kind of artificial light for less money
than electric light, but does it save you anything when it limits op
portunities for work and recreation ruins your eyesight smokes
your walls mars decorations and increases household work. You
could probably save a dollar tomorrow by going without your meals
but It wouldn't be economy. It Is not so much what you save, but
how you save that counts.
