tnusiasts are Dnnging the impor-iis

tical man who will do the work.
The men who are now mostac-.
tiveinthis campaign will never '
raise a rutabaga but they're do-'
mg good work nevertheless. A
common sense, practical solution
of the problem will be worked
out in the future with the aid of

tell of the "knocker" against

has not been appreciated in its

New people, more capital and
energy are wanted in Harney

NEW PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH
Mifntllceai fdlllce Planned And Construction
Work Mny Soon n Under Way. Senti
ment Strong Por L'arlr Completion.
Tlio movement for a now Pres
byterian church in this city was
given a new impetus as a result
of a conference hold at tliomnnso
on Thursday cvoninir of this
The pastor and church ofilcinls
have had the matter under ad
visement during the winter, and
at the last meeting of the session
held in April, it was decided, at
the suggestion of the pastor, to
invite a number of Burn's re
presentative men and secure
from them an expression ns to
tho advisability of proceeding
with a now building movement
The wives of the church offi
cials co-operated in making tho
conference a success by serving
u banquet at 7 o'clock; tho menu,
decorations, and general arrange
ments being of tho very highest
Immediately following tho ban
quet Dr. Babbidgo briefly out
lined a plan he believed would
carry the new church movement
thru to success; one suggestion
he made was that it could be
financied on n 3-year basis, sub
scriptions to bo receievd, J to be
gin with; i a year for the fol
lowing two years. Ho also in
dicated the church had $1500.00
on hand, and several very sub
stantial promises. He then re
quested each one present to be
frank in tho opinion, so thnt the
church officiary might proceed as
tho pulse of those present would
indicate. Those responding were
Messrs. Wm. Farro, John Biggs,
Sam Mothershead, Mayor Clev
enger, Dr. Hibbard, A. M. Byrd,
T. S. Gcer, T. Schwartz, J. L.
Gault, B. T. Johnson, Archio Mc
Gowan. B. Swain, J. M. Dalton,
Judge Miller, A. B. Whitney nnd
Harry W. Mcllose.
Tho remarks of those men
were genuinely optomistic and
encouraging to tho pastor and
church officials, so as to portend
their immedinte action in a
church building campaign.
The ladies serving tho banquet
were Mesdames Gault, Hibbard,
McGawan, Swain, Whitney and

A Journal ropresentatlvo visit
ed tho homo of C. M. Elklns,
cashier of tho Crook County
Bank, tho other day, where ho
had tho pleasure of Inspecting
three imported Hampshire owes
from tho celebrated "Cholder
ton" Hock of England. These
ewes were bought in January,
11)11, and in February bioujjht
him four lambs, ono weighing JM
pounds at thirty days old, In
February, 1912, they brought him
six fine lambs, ono lamb (a twin),
weighing 58 pounds at GO day'H
old. Theso ewes have also each
given a fleece averaging 9 pounds,
which owing to tho light Bhrlnk
ago brings nbout .'1 cents per
pound more than tho averago
Merino wools. Hampshire sheep
aro especially adapted for tho
farmer and for the sheepman of
Central Oregon who is breeding
for a lamb market.
The Hampshire Bheep is tho
largest and heaviest of the Down
breeds, and presents a very strik
ing appearance, the rams having
bold Roman countenances and
the owes with characteristically
strong but feminino faces. They
have dark brown or blnck points,
tho bone is large, tho limbs es
pecially strong and well set on,
with a good fleece of fine, white
wool. They are healthy and pro
lific nnd tho owes are good
mothers, giving an abundance of
milk. Prineville Journal.
