have bought it. The last cause
is the most frequent, for such .
men on reading of large crops,

can be bought for a song and can
be made to yield with little or

WATER AND SEWER.
The Times-Herald understands
the mayor of our city contem
plates submitting the proposition
of water works and a sewer sys
tem to tho voters in the near fu
ture and wo would urge serious
consideration by tho property
owners. Conservative estimates
"The Land Man."
Fine Level Grass
of tho cost hnvo boon mtido nnd
published, therefore voters nro
advised ns to this. Tho expense
is rather lnrgo to contemplate but
considering the need for llro pro
tection and necessity for tho
health of our people it is worth
while. Those who hnvo studied
tho matter feel that thoro will bo
practically no advancement in
tnxes as tho amount now spent
by individuals on priwito water
systems would pay tho interest
on the bonds nnd riinuiiiK ex
penses of tho two systems.
Tho Times-Herald asks free
discussion of this matter among
our people as with n thorough
knowledge of tho situation there
is no doubt but it will be favored.

LAMB LOSS NOT SO GREAT.
Mr. Jenkins Telephones In That Week's
Report was (Ireatly Exonerated.
Tho Times-Hornld hastens to
correct an error published in last
issue respecting tho honvy loss
of lambs in the Steens Mountain
section, It was reported that
.1. H. Jenkins had 'phoned his
brother Tom on Wednesday of
last week that ho hnd lost 1200
lambs but Mr. Jenkins called Tho
Tinics-IIorald Tuosdny nfternoon
over the 'phono from his Happy
Valley homo and said it was a
mistake. Tho fact is Mr. Jenkins
was not far enough along in tho
lambing period to hnvo that num
ber of lambs. He snys tho loss
hns been quito heavy compared
to former yenrs, yet it hns not
been to nny such extent a3 re
ported. Mr. Jenkins states it hns been
the worst lambing season ho has
experienced in twenty years on
tho ranges of Harney County but
the weather hnd changed now for
hotter nnd the season had not ad
vanced sufficient to make tho loss
so honvy, as with good weather
from now on a good per centage
of the lambs can be saved.
Many will be pleased to find
the former report exaggerated
and Tho Times-Herald certainly
does not wnnt the nrticlo of Inst
week to mislead in respect to the
severity of tho storms on the
