Geo. Love had quite an exper

the room were closed and the ex-
Ihaust discharged the gas inside
the room, this filling the place
with escaping gas to such an ex
tent that both Mr. Love and a
man assisting him were over

These gentlemen own a con

The Times-Herald understands
it is the intention of the new cor
poration now being formed to
first build from Burns to Lawen,
thus connecting the lines and
covering a large territory of this
county. They will then lake up
tho proposition of making desira
ble connections with long dis
tance lines on the outside and
giving Harney county another

isfactory service. With only one
long distance service now in op
eration it is almost impossible to
gel satisfactory service. The
condition of the present line is
not good and the line was built
on nit her a cheap order, making
it necessary for long distance
messages or conversations to be
repealed. In this manner it is
an exception if a message reach
