I.AIDL.AW, Sept. 21 With one of
the best agricultural exhibits yet dls
played In Crook County, an Inter
esting speaking program, and an
enthusiastic crowd, not to mention
good things to eat, Laldlaw, as usual,
proved herself a splendid host this
afternoon, and sent away her visitors
from the countryside and neighbor
ing towns not only with an Increased
respect for the possibilities of the
la!dlaw country and for the worth
of Its cltlxensblp, but also with' a
universal resolve to aid In every
possible way In the untangling of the
difficulties which have beset the Co

The display of agricultural pro
ducts was In Itself an event worth
tho trip to I.aldlaw. It was conduct
ed under the auspices of the Laldlaw
Development League, and It proved
wonderfully well the productiveness
of the adjacent territory. It oIbo
demonstrated that this portion of
Central Oregon can ralso good fruit
and unsurpassedTegetables, us well
as splendid grains and grasses.
Creditable as was the display last
year, the advance In numlxjrs, diver

summer's exhibits was a striking
tribute to tho development of the
country and tho Increased Interest
taken In such activity. Aa instance

There was also butter on display,

L. II. Kenney of Hums, Who Has Ile-
mnriuiblc Outfit and IteconJ, Hauls
17,000 Founds From IJend.
A freighter with the biggest and
the finest looking outfit seen in Dend
for many a day pulled through town'
Saturday, bound for Hums. What
is even more remarkable than bis
outfit was this particular representa
tive of tho genus "skinner", If trust
worthy report is to bo credited,
neither drinks, nor smokes, and
never works on Sunday. Also, it is
reported, bo never swears. All of
which Isn't a Sunday school story,
but a solemn and provable fact, not
to mention a glorious example for
erring brothers of bis own profession
and others straying through different
walks of life.
The name of the paragon freighter
is h. H. Kenney. Ho halls from
Hums. His outfit Includes twelve
fine horses and four wagons. When
he left for Hums tbreo wagona
carried about 17,000 pounds, and in
addition there was a water and feed
wagon. The total weight of the out
fit, Including wagons. Is placed at
over 25,000 pounds. About 20 miles
a day will bo averaged on the 140
mile trip to Hums.
On Sundays, say auto drivers who
pass him, Mr. Kenney "lays off" en
tirely. He has the reputation of
treating his horses wonderfully well,
and the resuts of this humanity were
evidenced by the remarkable way In
which tho teams responded to his
quiet orders when swinging the long
string of wagons through the streets.
A LITTLK JOKK ON THE CITY.
Last Saturday Chief Roberts picked
up a stray horse who was grazing
on tho Lucas lawn and put him In
tho pound. No one camo to get blm
out. Tho Chief had a hunch who
owned the critter, and told the man.
Tho man denied the allegation; said
he never had seen tho horse. Now,
the trouble Is. tho nag Is three legged,
and Is a huudred years old. or there
about. Also, he Is thinner than n
rail and can scarcely stand. No one
wants him. The Chief can't get a
buyer. And In the mean time the
city pays the feed bills.

A groat big prosperity smile
filtered all over tho assembled coun
cllmen nad the audience last night
when City Recorder Ellis at tho
council meeiing commenced to open
and read the offers made by bonding
houies to take up Dend's $60,000
sewer system bond Issue.
And there was good reason for
that smile, for tho reading of the
bids showed tho most substantial
kind of gilt edged endorsement of
Uend. Every one of tho seven of
fers tor the bonds was above par,
and, in fact, all of them were ac
companied by a very consldcrablo
premium. So, while the Judge shuf
fled the thousand dollar checks that
accompanied the bids, those present
suddenly awoke to a new realization
of the fact that Rend Is a first class
town and one upon whose successful
future big bonding houses are not
only content but anxious to bank.
"What's.. tho matter with Hend?"
And part of the answer, which
was chiefly too enthusiastic to print,
was a comparison of the success
meeting Uend's bond Issue sale aa
compared with that of at least on
other Interior town, where not so
long ago a far smaller Issue found a
maiket only considerably below par,
and on an Income- earning enter
prise at that. Also, someone asked
where the knockers were who ob
jected to the sewer project from tho
first, and solemnly asserted that tho
bonds never could find a market
Two IlliN Lead.
The two best bids received were
from Farson, Son & Co., of New
ork, and from the Washington
Trust Co., of Spokane. The former
offered $60,944 for the issue, and
greed to supply blank lithographed
bonds. The latter bid $61.10:,
agreed to pay accrued Interest up to
the date of delivery of the bonds, but
did not offer to supply blank bonds.
Tho estimated cost of getting tho
bonds made Is about $300, There
fore this amount, approximately,,
should be added to the first bid men
tioned and subtracted from the sec
ond. However, the monthly inter
est on tho bonds amounts to $300.
If, as is probable, a month or two
should elapse before the bonds art)
finally delivered, after legal exami
nation of the records, etc., this
monthly interest would mount up
consldersbly. After considering
these two offers, tho mayor wait
authorized to telegraph to the two
houses, asking Farsons If they would
pay accrued Interest, and asking tho
Spokane firm If they would furnish
blank donds. these matters not hav
ing been covered In the proposition
submitted. With definite Infor
mation on these points at hand, tho
Council will meet tonight and mako
final decision. While none of tho
other bids were turned down. It Is
practically certain that the award
hangs between tho two mentioned.
The other bidders wero aa follows:
