With wheat averaging bolter
than 50 bushels per aero Hnrnoy
County isn't so slow for grain
after all. Ono field averaged
that while a largo portion wont
better than CO bushels.
Wo have just noted in tho
Pendleton East Orcgonian that
tho business of that nlace was
suspended on tho opening day of
their local fair and tho first par
ade was not stock, but humanity.
Business men formed a parado
and marched to tho fair grounds
assisting in every way to make
tho fair a success. Wo would
like to see tho business men of
Burns take such an interest.
If tho weather is settled next
week tho fair should bo largely
attended. Exhibits aro showing
up quite satisfactory and with
some good horses to participate
in the speed events thero will bo
plenty of things of interest to
local neonle. Remember, it is
your fair and it will be just
what you make it The manage
ment will do its best and with
the patronage and assistance of
home people it will bo a success.
To a large number of tho poo
pie of Burns, many who nro not
members of the church as well
as its membership, it is evident
that the local Presbyterian peo
ple will be compelled to have a
new cnurch home before long.
Tho building which they now oc
cupy is tho old M. E. church
building which used to stand on
the flat in the cast part of town
About fifteen years ago it was
purchased of the M. E. people,
pulled upon the hill and cheaply
remodeled. The building is very
much racked and this racked
condition makes it very uncom
fortablo in tho winter. Tne
building is out of plumb uboiit
four inches. While the building
accommodates very well the
number who attend divine ser
vices; yet the Sunday school is
so congested that the classes are
almost overlapping and that too
after several classes have been
transfered to tho manse.
There are no accommodation's
in the present building for tho
primary grand and tho teachers
are handicapped m their work
The improvement in local build
ings of other kinds, the develop
ment of the country immediately
surrounding Burns, tho growth
of the work of the church itself,
tho inadiquacy of the building
and its racked condition makes a
new church building almost an
imparative need. The Presby
terian church has become a part
of the life of the people pf Burns
and vicinity, and the people can
ill afford to permit of any condi
tion that would hinder the beni-
ficent influence of that church.
The local Presbyterian people do
not desire any thing elaborate in
the way of a church building yet
they are not able to build the
church needed. They do not re
present the moneyed interests of
the community, but we know
these people have their friends
who appreciate the work and in
fluence of the church upon tho
community, and in a small way
they will give their financial aid.
We also believe that there aro
those on the outside who have
large interests in Harney County
who will appreciate the religious
and economic value of such a
church building as is needed nnd
will gladly respond to any rea
sonable call made upon them for
It seems that tho time is nt
hand when the preliminary steps
should be taken looking toward
the building of a new church in
Burns, beginning next Bpring as
soon as weather, roads and
ground conditions will permit.

No ono can visit this western
country without being over
whelmingly convinced of tho ur
gent necessity of the proper

Never until now has adequate
provision been made for a classi

distinctly what aro mineral lands

I think it wise to apply to con

passage of an enabling act
which shall permit tho secretary
of the interior to issue bonds in
tho sum of $10,000,000 or more
to complete all the projects now

Stomach troubles would moro
quickly disappear if tho idea of
treating tho cause, rather than
the effect, would como into prac
tice. A tiny, inside, hidden
nerve, says Dr. Shoop, governs
and gives strength to tho stom

Heart, and ono to tho Kidnoys.
When these "insido nerves" fail,
then tho organs must falter. Dr.
Shoop's Restorativo is directed
