Such weather and seasons as
wo are now experiencing empha
sizes the necessity of tlio conser
vation and proper handling of
our water supply. We need a
Moses right now and the sooner
the matter is taken up the better
for all concerned.
While the work of securing a
creditable exhibit of Harney
county products for the fair and
Mr. Hill is rather a hard task
our people are going to do the
.very best possible and The
Times-Herald hopes all will co
operate. Thin has been a very
bad season not alone in this sec
tion, but all over the middle and
western states, so there is no
occasion for getting discouraged.
Some very encouraging reports
are now coming in regarding
crops in various parts of the
county. The season has been
the most unfavorable for many
years and prospects were rather
discouraging. The short crops
are not confined to this section
alone, however, as they are
short all ovef the country. One
man who has land holdings here
has just returned from Alberta
where he had a large acreage
seeded and reports it an entire
A perfect town is that in which
you see the farmers all patronize
the home merchants, the mer
chants all patronize their neigh
bors for goods they do not handle
themselves, the laborers spend
ing their money they earn with
their tradesmen, and all animat
ed by a spirit that they will not
purchase articles abroad if they
can be bought at home. The
spirit of reciprocity between
merchants and mechanics, trades
men and manufacturers, results
in time in makiug the town a
perfect one to do business in.

coast will bo built is tho state
ment ma lo by W. P. Davidson,
president of the Oregon and
Western Colonization Company,
who was in Ontario last Kriday
and Saturday with a party of
colonization agents who will act
in conjunction with tho company
to bring settlers upon tho road
hnds throughout this state, says
tho Optimist. Davidson and his
company bought tho road lands
last spring only after the express
assurance of tho Hills that thoy
would build their road to parallel
the land grant across the slate,
and although Mr. Davidson ad
mits that tho time of construc
tion has not been settled, ho is
very positive in staling that
there is no doubt about tho ulti
mate building of the road.
ItUILIMMl COUNTY ROADS.
W. L. Gibson, county' road
master for Malheur county, was
in Ontario Saturday on his way
to Vale for a conference with the
county court. Mr. Gibson and
tho road commissioners aro busy
this summer building the line
graded county road leading west
ward toward Hums, which road
the county authorized this spring.
This road is 2S miles in length,
and extends from Ontario
through Vale and the Malheur
canyon to the west boundaries
of the county.
The workmen are using a mod
ern road grader, requiring four
teen horses and three men to
operate it. A heavy plow is fix
ed in the center of the machine
with an elevator 18 feet long at
tached to the plow. With this
machine 1000yds of the hnrdest
kind of dirt can be lifted in
ten hours. All the dirt loosened
by the monster plow is automat
ically carried up the elevator and
distributed in the center of tho
road. With this machine it is
found it costs only about 5 cents
to lift a yard of earth, where
with the use of the Fresno or
other road device it costs 12 to
21 cents to move a yard of dirt,
diirerence in tho cost of the
latter being duo to the condition
of the soil being moved. Onta

Autos Help (loud Koads Cause
To espouse the cause of good
roads is popular because good
roads benefit everybody. Motor
clubs that put forth their efforts
to the building and maintenance
of roads will strike a popular
cord and should and will receive
the support of the general public.
Time was, not so many years
ago, when the motorist dared
not advocate good roads; in fact
he hardly dared advocate any
thing, for whatever he was for
the rest of the people were
against. The motorist was an
Ishmacl. Every man's hand
was against him, and tho ini-

The American Automobile
Association, with its quarter of
a million members, is tho great
power now working for federal
aid in building roads. Tho trans
continental highways which will
be built within tho next few
years may be directly attributed
to tho work of tho force at the
national capital. The larger this
organization becomos tho sooner
will its objects bo attained.
There is nothing incongruous in
a farmer belonging to the Amer
ican Automobile Association.
His duty is to affiliate with the
organization. It is the prime
mover in the good roads cause,
and no farmer will disputo that
good roads are a benefit to him.
The motor club offers the farmer
an opportunity to become a mem
ber of the American Assiciation,
and thus aid in its work. Tho
club becomes a member of the
state association, and this in turn
becomes a pari, of the national
body. This offer.. the quickest
and most efficient molhod of
reaching the good roads problem.
