1. An Annouticcaint.
' Beginning with this number.
The Bulletin will be issued here
after on Wednesday afternoon in
lead of Friday as heretofore.
There arc many reasons that induce
us to make the change. Wo have
always liked Wednesday as a pub'
iicatiou day; and furthermore, as
mail schedules now exist, it will
enable The Bulletin to reach its
subscribers in much better time
than under a Friday publication.
It will also give our advertisers
better results, as it will allow our
readers more time to get the paper
and read the store bargains offered
before doing their Saturday's
shopping. Hence, Bulletin readers
aay look hereafter for their paper
on Wednesday afternoon.
Ths Quintessence of Foolishness.
The Bulletin is well aware that
it is a dangerous policy to discuss
religious topics, but it has had
something working iu its inner
brain cells for so long that it needs
roust give utterance to what is
bothering it. And it is about the
question of so many church organ
izatioos in Bend.
How foolish it is to attempt to
maintain three separate church or
ganizations in Bend. How much
more reasonable would it be for the
Protestant denominations to unite
en seme one man, -good and able,
and let him devote hb entire time
to the one field. As it is now we
have three the Methodist, the
Presbyterian and the BaptUt. At
stated intervals Rev. I.owther, from
his bone somewhere about Trail
crossing, drives a distance ot 25 or
30 miles in order to preach at Bend
on the Sunday alloted to him; on
another Sunday of each month Rev.
Moore likewise drives some 30 or
o miles from his homestead near
Prinev'ilfc toliold services at Bend;
and UcV. Mitchell oscillates be
tween Bend and Rusland in his en
deavor td preach the gospel at dif
And what is the result? Bend is
;ivcn a church service that amounts
almost to nothing as far as direct
results are concerned. With three
.nen preaching from the same pul
pit, with three separate organiza
tions endeavoring to keep up the
work," and with three preachers
UirccVng this work, how can thtre
be anything but mighty poor re
turns for the effort expended? To
accomplish results there must of
leccssitv be one mind at the head
.f the work td control and direct it.

solicit subscriptions here and there
aud tire, with their, importunities,
, some men who have no interest in
or liking for churches. Thus these
men are disgusted with the church
s on institution and a good cause
is done far more harm than good.
This condition of affairs would be
bad euough if there were much
.1 -..!:,. Tin hnw much
worse must it be when th& actual
ood accomplished is very small in-1
deed. The Bulletin docs not mean
to state that the church iu Bend is
not accomplishing good. It would
never do to step till church work
But much more uood could be ac
complished tlitm is now being done. J
Willi the thrse organizations and
with lite . work going in a sort of
"hit and miss" style, there is not
much interest manifested iu the
services by the public. The nttrtul
auce is .woefully small. Where
there should be n church lull every
Sunday listening to able and help
ful sermons, there arc now, on an
average, from half a dozen to two
dozsn persons present. Fifty peo
ple in attendance would be consid
ered a very large congregation.
There is no man statioucd at Bend
to keep the work going during the
wcvk, and the sum and substance
of it all is that we have three meu
driving long and tiresome distances
on starvation wages to preach to a
handful of indifferent people.
How utterly silly itall is. And
with what disgust mu3t the good
Lord look upon such misguided
efforts to serve Him and His cause.
How much better would it be for
the people of Bend to unite on sonic
able man, pay him a living salary,
and let him devote all his energies
to this one town 'and vicinity. We
would then have energetic church
work and well attended services;
the bt:rest would be kept aroused
aud vigorous under one man's con
stant direction; and people would
not be tired and disgusted by pn
attempt to support three organiza
tions iu a town so small that one
would be a great plenty.
Yc, that would be much better.
But The, Bulletin does not expect
to see such. a stale of affairs come
to pass. As long as human nature
is constituted as it is, the denomi
nations will continue to struggle
for a starvation existence, aud Bend
will coutiuuc to be given three or
more sickly church organizations;
at least, until the town becomes
large enough to give them a proper
A I'leasinz Innovation.
For the first time in a good many
years a county judge has paid an
official visit to this end of the coun
ty, and the interest displayed can
not but be pleasing to the residents
of a district so long neglected. This
sectiou has a right to expect to be
treated as a part of Crook county,
although long neglect had almost
weaned it from that idea Nouc
the less pleasing, however, is the
innovation inaugurated by the new
county board in making c trip
through this section fur the pur
pose of getting better acquainted
Much benefit will result from a
closer acquaintance of county offi
cials with all sections of the county.

As regular as noon comes the horse
also drives the caw up to the wate--ing
