JULIAN BYKI - Mr
It docs seem a pity that local
Btockmen cannot have at least
sorno protection from marauding
bands of sheep. Conditions on
Steona mountain aro anything
but pleasant on account of out
side flocks, yet the local tax
payer had no more privileges
than the foreigner who has not
an aero of land and pays his
Even under most unfavorable
conditions it seems wo aro goinfr
to have very fair crops of grain
in this section. It is unfortun
ate that we should bo thus hand
icappoJ at this particular timo
with a second dry season, yet
those who look at the matter in
the right light and compare this
country wiih other sections, find
that wo havo not been worso
than others. Wo should antici
pate dry seasons and bo pre
pared for them.
The big rush to register for
homestead at tho opening of tho
reservation lands in Northern
Idaho furnishes an object lesson
in advertising. Perhaps but one
in every thousand will secure
land there which perhaps is no
better, if as good in a general
way, than the largo tract recent'
ly thrown open here. If those
people knew of this land it would
likely all be taken within a short
time. We should let people
know about us.
According to the Boise papers
Harriman is going to parallel the
Idaho Southern railroad. The
latter road was built out from
Gooding into the north side irri
gation tract by the Twin Falls
irrigation people after Mr. Har
riman had positively refused to
build the road. Mr. Kuhn and
his associates financed the road
for the pursose of developing
that district and giving the set
tiers an outlet to market The
plan of building was along the
line proposed by the amendment
suggested in this state. There
are places in Idaho and in Ore
gon where Mr. Harriman could
build railroads that would be a
real benefit, yet he will allow
those to wait while he fights the
local company because they had
the temerity to really do the
work. This doesn't look good
to an outsider.
There is nothing in this wide
green world which makes a prin
ter's heart jump with joy like
receiving on the first of the
month a bill for $30 or $60 for
groceries, etc., written on a bill
head which bears the imprint of
an eastern print shop. The
printer pays the bill, gulps down
a lump that swells in his throat
and then patiently for thirty min
utes listens to the merchants
roar and tear around about peo
ple sending out of tho country to
buy what they need. Tho mer-
chants of this county will never
get the tradd of the county until
they themselves turn over a new
leaf. They are not entitled to;
they don't get it and they will
never get it until they practlco
what they preach. If a grocer
sends east after his hardware,
and the hardware merchant
sends cast for his groceries, and
eastern mail order houses get
orders from business men and
families for everything they do
not carry themselves, they can
expect tho people to do exactly
the same thing. It is alright to
boost for buying at home, but
the proper way to cure an evil is
first to look at it just as it is and
then apply the remedy accord
ingly. Let the merchants them
selves start to buying at home
and in a surprisingly short timo
the people will follow. The fa
ble of the crab is applicable: The
old crab reprimanded tho young
crab for walking sideways in
stead of in a straight lino, the
young crab responding that if
the old crab would first show him
how it was done he would gladly
follow the advice. Bluo Mt.
help quite materially nd U is
understood our fruit will bo very
Dfood. Farmers should savo somo
of theso products, not particular
ly for tho amount of tho premi
um offered, but mow to show
what can bo raised.
Tho premium list will bo hero
no doubt tho latter part of tho
month as it is now being put In
typo by tho stato printer. Tho
premiums aro increased this year
and cover a wider scopo. Don't
wait until a premium list is mail
ed you boforo looking after possi
ble exhibits, but do it now.
Tho speed program is tho most
attractive ever gotten out in
Eastern Oregon and will attract
a fast lot of horses to compote.
Already we havo horses hero to
take part and somo are now on
route from California and Port
land. Tho business men of Bums
should all begin to boost for the
fair which will be held Oct. G to
AURRIED AT CANYON CITY.
The marriage of Thomns II.
Hudspeth and Emma Amanda
Hodson was solemnized at the
Elkhorn hotel Monday, Judge
Geo. E. Davis officiating. Quito
a number of friends witnessed
tho ceremony and offered con
gratulations and tho hope that
tholr lives bo prosperous, pleas
ant and long continued. Mr.
Hudspeth is engaged in business
at Prairie City and tho brido was
a resident of Canyon City for
several years. Bluo M t Eagle.
Wm. Walt was brought to the
hospital, last Tuesday afternoon
in a very dangerous condition,
tho result of falling from a hay
stack and breaking his 6pitie
close up to the neck. Ho is para
lyzed from his arm pits down
and there is little hopes for his
recovery. Ho is n strong man
who will weigh at least" 200
pounds and ho fell on his head.
He Is unmarried and 54 years
old with no relatives that ho
knows of. Mr. Wait camo here
something over a year ago and
took up a homestead. Ho has
been working at various places
when not on his homestead and
seems to be a very energetic nnd
honest man. His condition is
A SAD DEATH
The local fair board should now
receive the Bupport of all tho
pcoplo to make tho meeting this
fall tho best ever. A large dele

Lciia, tho three-year-old daugh
tei of Mr. and Mrs. H. F. Ring
en, died at the homestead near
Waverly last Monday morning,
July 19. Tho little one was sick
but a short time, taking cholera
infantum the Thursday before
her death. Dr. Denman was
called first but later was not
available and Dr. Geary went
out from this city Sunday after
noon to see the little patient but
she was beyond human aid. This
death was particularly sad as
the family had como here but
about three months ago and had
hardly gotten settled in their
home. Tho remains were brought
to this city and the funeral was
held Tuesday afternoon, Rev. C.
W. Holloman conducting a short
service at tho cemetery.
This beautiful little baby life
was so precious, so frought with
blessing to the parents that she
seemed a flower of paradise per
mitted to bloom for a season by
their side, then recalled to its
nature skies, leaving the earth
road for them dark and lonely.
They havo one other child, a boy
six yeartf old. The sympathy of
this community goes out to these
BASEBALL TOURNAMENT PLANNED,
In one hour Wednesday the
prosperous and enterprising town
of Prairio City raised $G00 for
purses which will bo hung up for
a base ball tournament on tho
Gth, 7th and 8th of Soptember,
Teams from Harney county,
Baker City, Sumpter, Austin,
Prairio City, Canyon City nnd in
fact any base ball aggregation in
eastern Oregon will bo invited to
come and get tho money. There
will be three prizes offered. First
money will bo $300; second mon
ey $200 and third money $100.
Prairio City has one of tho
best baso ball ground? In eastern
Oregon and tho people In the
town and tho vicinity have bcon
so inoculated with tho baso ball
bug that a little, matter of $700
or $800 for a purso can be raised
in almost a twinkling of an oyc.
It is likely, that after tho car
nival of ball at Prairie a similar
occasion will be planned for tho
county fair at John Day during
tho last part of September and it
is stated on authority that in tho
first week of October during tho
fair at Burns thero will also bo

The St&it k one of the latest nnd boat additions to tho famous
Doere Line of Riding PI0W9. Is light in wolcht, simple
nnd durable in construction full of genuine merit,' and Imb
shown its mettle and utility in every test it 1ms been put to.
It lias nmply demonstrated by its good work its right to be
classed as a strictly up-to-date, high-class form tool. It s
certain to suit the most critical farmer and be a money
maker and a labor-saver for him.
"I It's a Deere-Ifs Right"
and does its work perfect ease to the operator and team.
It is manufactured and sold as a tongueless plow a tonguo
not being necessary to best results, but one is supplied nt
slight cost to those who perfer it that way, The Stag is tho
simplest riding plow built, anyone who can hook up a team
nnd drlvo 'em straight can operate it successfully. It pos
sesses many superior features not found on other plows,
and it takes a whole book to illustrate and dlscrlbe them.
Better write for It today and all the information you want
