in referring to tho statements of
tho First National and Harney
County National Banks appear
ing in this issue. This certainly
shows a prosperous condition in
this section just at tho close of a
most sevcro winter. Each has
made substantial gains sinco the
report made GO days ago and tho
First National shows tho largest
footings in its history.
INVESTIGATE WATER SUPPLY.
Considerable interest has been
aroused among the property own
ers of this city looking to tho m
stallation of water works and a
Hums. A special meeting
tno council was nuiu iuwuny
11 M - I..I.1 Til.. ln
evening when M. L. Lewis model
a proposition m connection with
tno springs no owns west ui u u.
Archie McGowan also had a pro
position or rather a suggestion
as to the possibility of bringing
water from the Parker springs
about eight miles north. So
favorably impressed were tho
council that it was decided to
call a mass meeting of citizens
at the Commercial Club rooms
Thursday evening to discuss the
matter and ask for an expression
as to the advisibility of securing
the services of a competent engi
neer to thoroughly investigate
the various sources of water
The meeting Thursday evening
was not attended by as repre
sentative a body of property
owneis as the importance of the
move would justify, yet quite a
number was present. Mayor
Clevenger called the meeting to
order and stated its purpose.
Several had visited the Parker

to express themselves. Assessor I Lomrf Freres, is practically as
Donegan stated it was his opin-.sved m Eastern Oregon, asyn-
ion that these springs would fur-
nish sufficient water for present
and other springs were available
for future. He pointed out the
necessity of amending tne city
charter before we could expect
to install a system of this kind,

the same line, stating we
the water works and sewerage,
but feared the expense would be
too great to avail ourselves of the
gravity system suggested and
that possibly a pumping plant
would be most feasible.
Among others who discussed
the importance of immediate
action were Councilmen White
and Young, Dr. L. E. Hibbard,
A. J. Irwin and R. B. Post All
of them desired tho matter be
investigated and report made of
feasibility and cost of various
Mr. Donegon introduced the
following resolution which was
adopted by a rising vete: "Re
solved that the city council be
requested to employ a competent
engineer to investigate and re
port on a water system for the
city of Burns."
Archie McGowan was asked
for his views and he stated that
tho resolution of Mr. Donegan
covered all that the meeting
could expect to accomplish, but

though tho first cost might bo
greater tho operation would prove
much cheaper than a pumping
plant and bo most satisfactory in
tho end. Ho had secured somo
figures on tho possible cost of
piping tho water from tho Par
ker springs and said six-inch

sufficient water for 1500 popula
tion would cost less than $19,000
for ton miles and with $5000 for
covering it would bo tho entire
cost of laying it into Burns.

Tho old fashioned way of dosing
a weak stomach, or stimulating
tho Heart or Kidneys is all wrong
Dr. Shoop first pointed out this
error. This is why his prescrip
tion Dr. Shoop's Restorative
is directed entirely to the cause
of theso ailments-tho weak in
side or controlling nerves. It
isn't so difficult, says Dr. Shoop,
to strengthen a weak Stomach,
Heart or Kidneys, if one goes at
it correctly. Each insido organ
has its controlling or insido nerve
When theso nerves fail, then
theso organs must surely falter.
These vital truths aro leading
druggists everywhere to dispense
and recommend Dr. Shoop's Re
storative. Test it a few days,
and sco! Improvement will
promptly and surely follow.
