The reader of a newspaper will
readily agree that it is necessary for
a merchant, with any pretension to
proeressiveness, to advertise. Yet
this would not be true if it were not
equally true that it is necessary for
the reader of the newspaper, if he
or she have any pretensions to pro
gressiveness, to SUAD and answer
These are twin facts, twin neces
sities. Whatever is of enough im
portance for the merchant to pay
for the privilege of saying is of too
much importance for the reader to
overlook. And just as advertising
is the way of the progressive store,
so is the leading of advertising the
way of the progressive person.
Measure your progressiveness by
this standard, and you will not go
If the Ladies' Library Club
wishes to secure a book that would
prove of great interest to many pa
trons of.the library, The, Bulletin
would suggest that they purchase
the book entitled, "My Mamie
Rose," by Owen Kildarc, extended
reference to which was made by
Bishop Paddock in his Sunday
morning sermon. This book pic
tures the life of Owen Kildarc him
self, who was born and raised in
the slums of New York. He was
a true product of the slums and
was about as "low down" a speci
men of humanity as one ever finds.
However, certain influences finally
led him into a better path, his re
generation followed, and he is now
devoting his life to the uplifting of
the unfortunate tenants of the
slums. Kildarc educated himself
and has become quite a powerful
writer of articles and stories des
criptive of slum life. The storv re
ferred to has a romance equal to a
first rate novel (but it's true), pic
tures the real life of the slums in a
vivid manner, and will bold one's
interest from start to finish.
Bishop Paddock is a personal
friend of Kildare, a warm friend
ship haviug developed between the
two men when the bishop was en
gaged in slum work in New York
"My Mamie Rose" is well worth
reading. And the reader has the
satisfaction of knowing that it is a

German Farmers Will Develop Land

A Mr. Huston, a Portland capi
talist, was in Bend over Sunday
conferring with A. M Drake in re
gard to an irrigation and coloniza
tion scheme neir Clinc Falls, in
which the former gentleman is in
terested. Mr. Huston was seeking
to secure Mr. Drake's assistance in
some ditch right of way matters.
Huston and his associates have
purchased about 3,000 acres of land
on the flat directly west of the
Tetherow Bridge. They plan to
take out a canal from the Deschutes
with which to irrigate this land,
and will aLo put in a power plant
to run a planing mill to he oper

right of way across land owned by
the Cline rails power company,
and, it is understood, is haviug
trouble to secure it.
Mr. Huston has made arrange
ments whereby a large colony of
thrifty Germans will occupy the
land in small units and will en

as well as diversified farming. A
town is being platted and as soon
as this is done and the land divided
into the required units the German
settlers will take up the work oi

Death of s Western Ptoaeer.
The Helena (Mont.) Independent
of February 15 prints quite a
lengthy article telling of the death
of Thomas B. Persell, and relating
incidents of his life, be having been
a pioneer at Helena. Mr. Persell
was an uncle of Mrs. Hugh O'Kane
of Bend and Mrs. J. J. Hogan and
E. J. Wright of Portland. The In
dependent said, in part:
"News wss received in the city yester
day of the death at Los Angeles, Cal., of
Thomas Benton Pencil, formerly presi
dent of the Pencil Limeroclc Company
of Helena, and for many years a promi
nent resident of this city. The news of
his sudden death was received by bis son
G rover C Pencil of East Helena in a
telegram from Mrs. W. H. Persell, who
wss with the pioneer st tbe time of his

men were better or wore highly esteemed
than "Tom" Persell, as be was most
fsmilisrly known. Only 10 days sgo as
be wss bidding his friends and family
goodbye before taking bis departure for
California, be was in the best of health
and spirits. Particulars concerning bis
desth were not received.
"Thomas Persell was bora in Lawrence
county, Alabama, October 4, 1837. In
the spring of 1S60 he left his Southern
home snd Joined tbe crowd that was
msking for Colorado and tbe West
He came to Montana in 1865 and en
gaged In plscer mining In Washington,
guleh. In 1096 he discovered
a lead south of Helena which he named
the 'Ninety-six,' and from which he
shipped considerable pay ore. The ore
played out but in carrying on his devel
opment work the pioneer found a body
of almost pure lime, suitable for fluxing
purposes at the smelters. Mr. Persell
started the quarry and for number of
yean furnished llraerock not only or
the Kast Helena smelter but for the An
aconda and Great I'slls smelters. In this
business he acquired a fortune.
"His death will be regretted generally
to Helena especially among the old tim
ers. He was a generous, wholcsouled.
rugeed type of man, liberal in his views.
and one who was wont to look for the
better qualities in his fellow men rather
than their Imperfections. He tasted ad
versity and endured the hardest kind of
hardships, and was at times nude the ob-
ject of the abuse and vituperation of
those with whom he failed to agree In
business transactions, but through It all
he maintained the same sunny disposi
tion that was characterise of hi. ri.ll.r
"Besides bis son G rover he Is survived
by another son, W. K. Pursell, who is at
present In Seattle waiting for the bodv.
which will be shipped to Helena for
burial. Mr. Persell will be buried be
side the body of bis wife who died here
some yrars sgo."
An old tragedy, and what tuny
possibly have beccn a crime com-
imittcd years ago, has been tin
earthed at the foot of Grey Butte
on the west side. The skeleton of
a man has been washed out of a
shallow grave, and the Crook coun
ty authorities have gathered to
gether these grewsomc relics and
will make some investigation Into
the mystery surrounding tht-tn.
The Madras Pioneer says the
first of the week a careful investi
gation was made of the skeleton
nud the grave in which it had been
buried, nud the following fncts are
established: That it is the skeleton
of a white man, of middle nge, nud
standing about five feet and six
inches iu height; that the body had
been buried many, probably 10 or
30, years ago, and that the body
had been buried in a shallow grave,
not over two feet deep, as though
hastily buried. The skull and
lower jaw with a portion of the
teeth were taken over to Princvillc,
to be examined by the county
physician, with a view to identifi
cation. Iu connection with the discovery
of this skeleton, the mysterious dis
appearance ten years ago of Shorty
uavis is recalled, and the report
has gained circulation that the
skeleton just unearthed is that of
Davis. Later developments would
indicate, however, that there is
not much probability of that being

menced iu the spring, but uo defi
