FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 25 1908
An attempt to organize a civic
improvement society of some
kind will be maje in the near
future and it should receive the
hearty support of every public
minded person. Civicpridf needs
a stirring up in this town and
we hope to see it get a good one
in a very short time. It is not
necessary to make it an expen
sive luxury, but much can be
done at a very small outlay of
cash. What is needed more than
money is a little "elbow grease"
applied to the right spot. Let
us get together and clean up
things as well as possible this
fall and then we can prepare for
permanent cleaning up next
spring. There should be some
method evolved that will get
rid of the grass on the side streets
ana on uie vacant lots. A mower
can be put to work next spring
and keep the grass down so that
there will be no danger of it
catching lire when it gets dry.
A number of days the past sum
mer were very dangerous to the
safety of the town. With the
wind biowing and dry grass
everywhere, had a spark fallen
at the.right spot the town would
have gone up in smoke. A. water
system will be put in soon that
will give fire protection and then
we can get a reduction on the
insurance. It the nonresident
property owners will not volun
tarily aid in keeping the town
looking spick and span, then we
can levy a small tax and by that
means force them to pay their
share of the expense that will
add much value to their prop-Tty.

We have received manv flat
tering comments on the Herald
since we started it on the road
to prosperity, but one of the
most highly appreciated is fftnn
a veteran in the newspaper and
printing business. One who in
lNf;, with hfs parents, started
from Monmouth, Ilinois, fortius
locality and whose father was an
intimate friend of the founders
of our little town. A man well
known to all old pioneers and
whose anecdote of two old set
tlers of this county was published
in lat weeks Herald--Uncle
George II. Ilimes.
What do you think of bonding
the city for the purpose of put
ting in a firstclass water system
and for sewers'." The matter has
been under discussion for some
time and will be taktn up and
placed before the people at no
distant date. It is now believed
that a splendid water system and
septic tank sewage can be pro
vided at an expense of less tlign
year s business. The practice
was not confined to any one sec
tion,but was almost universal.
Nearly all the culls were barrel

them. It did not pay. Oregon
Last week there were twenty
two additions to the Herald fam
ily and there are more coming
in daily. At the present rate of
increase our list will have
proportions by Christmas.
Don't get discouraged because
the hens are not laying heavily
just now. A little more care and
better feed will soon put them
on a paying basis again. Try
There is one feature of the
Herald that we want to call your
especial attention to and that
is that it has no "patent in
side" and we are not foisting
on an intelligent public, as news,
matter that was read the week
Picfore in the daily papers. An
other feature that we hope is
meeting with the commendation
of the public, is that the paper
is not filled with patent medicine
ads to the exclusion of matter of
A few walnut or fruit trets are
not a bad thing to have in tl'
chicken yard. We noticed the
chickens liked the shade of a
tree better than the shade of
their house during the hot
weather. Then jigain the income

isn't so bad. Is it?
Lake county, is experiencing
a shortage in the sheep industry.
It is estimated that theft is less
than half as many sheep on the
ranges this yeaf than has been
in former years. The reasons
contributing to this are the
shortage of range caused by the
creation of fyrest reserves, where
only a limited number of sheep
may graze, the high prices ob
tained for mutton and sheen
last year and the low price of
wool this year. This industry
as been the chief source of
vealtlwn Lake county, and'the
business men are feeling the
shortage very much.
