Entertains the 500 Club.
Mrs. C. L. Fitchard entertained the
members of the Independence Five
n,1 Club at her bungalow three
miles below town on Thursday of last
.v The oarty went down in con
veyances in the morning and dinner
was served at noon by the hostess.
In the afternoon there was a society
circus, some card playing and story
San Francisco, August 12. A gold
piece, valued by collectors at $500,
was paid into police court today for a
$10 fine and is said to bo one of the
freak pieces coined in 1847 from which
tho words "In God We Trust" were
omitted by accident. These six coins
escaped into circulation before the
nnler was received and they are
..na..ltr anil irht hv collectors. It
is not known who paid the piece.
O,. the arrival of the Daily urcgon-
iun of Portland in Independence last

the Inekv holders of one ot tne
sixteen-dollar gold pieces referred to

and on picking up the coin Bently
ration,! thn date and the maice 01 me
coin and immediately surmised that
the coin must be worth more than its
face value. He exchanged the coin
for one he had and since the incident
has been carrying the coin as a pocket
piece. Recently he noticed an article
in the Portland Telegram describing
similar coins and telling of their value
At once he opened correspondence
with a reliable firm of coin collectors
and in reply to his correspondence he
was offered P00 for the piece, but re
fused the offer.

agent of the railroad company and
the staire lines that run into that
country, have been circulating reports
about the great opportunities mat are
to be grabbed by taking up tioseri
land in Harney county, where there
hv been about 60.000 acres of gov
ernment land thrown oieu for settle

was tiled upon several years ago uy
whRt is known as the Harney vauey
Irrigation Company, the stock holder
of which were the owner of large tracts
of land in that country who were in
terested in the stock raising business.
They laid the proposition before Port
land and Salt Lake capital with the
result that they l-ecame interested in
the scheme to control the land, for
which they agreed 10 plce water on
the land so that it can be put on the
market at $6 per acre.
After spending large sums of money
in making surveys, etc., it was discov-

r. W. Craven "I did not see any
thing in that country that looked
eood to me. Of course if you want a
hmtead there, there might possibly
be something for a man that wants to
go through the privations of a home

mint Moore "I went over a large
of the land open for settle
ment under the desert act, ,and while
gome of it is all right there is none any
good unless you have water on it, and
in my estimation there is no chance
to get water on it at any cost."
Wm. Kurre "Polk county land is
good enough for me. I don't want
any of it in mine. ,, it migni do an
right if it had plenty of water on it,
but it is cheaper to get beer in that
county than water."

opportunity of a young man' life, and
after a careful investigation I filed on

acres as well a Miss Uitf, but we have
not been able to see either of them,

L. Damon and J. E. Hubbard tele
phoned from Portland that they each
filed on 320 aero.
W. W. Percival, Jim Hanna, and
D. G. Dove, the last that was heard
from them was that they had char
tered an automobile and that they
were going to play the string ont and
come home by the way o: alo. All
of those who went into the Harney
valley are glad they made the trip for
the reason that it gave them an oppor
tunity to see just what a big country
we have in Oregon.

Intense colicky pain which, would
come on at times and from wmcn
I could find no relief," says I. S.
Maaon, of Beaver Dam, Ky. "Cham

Remedy was recommended to me by
a friend. After taking ft few doses o
the remedy I was entirely relieved.
