The Times-Herald man has
been out in the country more or
less this week and finds crops
are coming on in fine shape.
The backward weather of the
early spring kept vegetation
back but it seems to have been
just what it needed rather than
a detriment. Almost every field
in this vicinity shows excellent
prospects for an exceptional
crop. The fruit trees are es
pecially full and wc may expect
the finest display of fruit at the
fair this fall we have yet had.
Those who were not inclined,
and others who were prevented
by various reasons from attend
ing other celebrations on the
fourth were well pleased with
the one recently pulled off here
at home Every merchant and
citizen who donated toward this
occasion can well feel repaid, as
it was a worthy cause and one
which gave a full days enjoy
ment and pleasure to many who
could not go elsewhere and who
would have otherwise missed the
customary celebration. Consid
ering the short time in which the
celebration was gotten up, it was
all and more than expected.

Thocrojis were put in at diff
erent rates of seeding to test the
rates of seeding on rather dry
soil. The two peck seedings of
grain do not sjiow effect from
the lack of moisture as yet, but
the four and six peck seeding!,
almost invariably, are showing
drouth and can hardly be ex
pected to mature.
A fine rabbit proof fence is
now about the place. It was put
in first in July. Before the com
pletion or this fence, a great deal
of trouble came from the rabbits.
Considerable damage was done,
especially to field peas and nrti
chokes. Sub-Stations have been located
at Waverly under the care of
Mr. Duncan; Harriman under the
care of Mr. Latha; Valley View
under the care of Mr. Clyde
Schaffer; and at Sunset under
the care of Mr. Hency. Other
Sub-Stations arc to be located at
Drewsey, Silver Valley, and Cat
low Valley in the near future.
'these Sub-Station are of ten
acres each, fenced against rab
bits. They will be operated in
co-operation with and under the
same management as the Experi
ment Station. Such crops as arc
pretty well proven to bo adnptcd
to the country will be introduced
and grown. They will carry tho
work of tho Station at Burns to
the farmers.

The people of Burns should not
neglect the bond election to bo
held the last of the month. This
is a matter that should have care
ful consideration as it is impor
tant the charter be amended to
provide for bonds that we may
have water works and sewerage.
It will not be a burden to proper
ty owners but rather add to the
value of every home and business
property in the city.
Mrs. F. E. Dickinson was a
caller at this office Thursday and
invited Tho Times-Herald man
up to see their farm in tho hills
to tho west of this city. Mr,
Dickinson has one of the best
dry farms in this section and has
made a success. He now has
about 100 acres in alfalfa and an
unusual thing has happened, one
that seldom comes to the notice
of one on a dry farm. Thoy have
u large acreage of alfalfa that is
too thick and want to know how
to get rid of it. Tho dry season
last year had no effect upon kill
ing ft out and the plants uho up
the moisture before they get any
heighth. They also have somo
Tall Meadow Oats that aro too
thick. Wo would suggest that
somo of our dry farmers visit
this farm and get somo pointers
on how to put in crops, for it is
the usual complaint that it is im
possible to get a stand, rather

Tho Times-Herald man was one

a short trip over tho country in
company with C. C. Chapman

promising fields of grain, field

In the issue of The Times-Herald
of May, 4th, 1912, I saw a
notice stating that Mr. Bates,
publisher of the Pacific North
west of Portland was preparing
to take another party of young
ladies, one from ench county in
Oregon, on an excursion of the
East and asking for somo young
lady from this county. I at once
made up my mind to make tho
effort to go and altho the time
was short, (barely three weeks)
through the kindness and gener
osity of the people of Harney
county and other friends I Waa
ready with my subscription when
tho first of June camo and I had
to leave for Portland.
The trip to Portland was very
pleasant. I met Mr. Bates and
the arrangements for my trip
were completed. On Wednes
day June 5th, the Portland Ad
Club gave us a luncheon at the
Multnomah Hotel at which over
five hundred wore present.
There were some good speeches
and they gave us a good sendoff.
After luncheon wo were invit
ed by Mr. Frieman, Cashier of
tho Lumbermans Bank, to visit
that institution and see the work
ings of a big bank. Wo were
shown thru the vaults and per
mittcd to hold for a moment ten
thousand dollars in gold coin.
After this wo were taken for a
trip to Council Crest, one of the
great scenic resorta of Portland,
and after being photographed wo
were shown all tho wonders of
the Scenic Railway as well aa a
"Trip up tho Columbia" and
everything wc cared to see.
Tho next morning ut about ten
found us at tho depot ready to
begin our trip. Wo found our
special car beautifully decorated
with roses, tho work of the Col
lego Equal Suffrage Club of
Portland. After bidding our
friends good-bye wo were on our
We reached Chicago on Sunday
and as wo were to remain thero
three hours wo visited tho Art
museum. i'ow oi us nau over
visited so largo a museum and
wo found it very interesting.
Wo left on an nfternoon train,
reaching Detroit at 10:30 that
evening. Next morning wo were
met by friends of Mr. Batca who
showed us around tho city in
automobiles. Wc also went for
a rido around Bello Islo which is
about a milo from tho city. This
is a very beautiful place. Locat
ed at tho center of the Island Is
n conservatory, in ono depart
ment of which is an acquariam.
In this department wo Baw over
a hundred different kinds of fish
which was very interesting to
all of us.
The Le Moyno Stock Company
will ho at tho Tonawamu theatre
next week, beginning on Wed
nesday, July 17, in a high class
repertoire of comedies and
dramas. This is n very strong
company of 11 players and tho
people of Burns may feel sure
of somo good entertainment.
On Wednesday a balloon ascen
fiinn will take place in this city
ono of tho Lo Moyno ' company
making tho ascent. This will bo
a treat for our people who noldom
havo tho opportunity to sco an
air ship, and tho pcoplo living in
tho country should come in.
Tho company will play for a
week at tho opera houso with a
change of program each night.
Admission prices aro tho samo

in the past. Advance snles will
begin Monday at the box office.
Tho Times-Herald has a letter
from Judgo Thompson in which
he suites tho court wishes to con
sider tho proposition of adding
agriculture and domestic science
to tho regular high school course
at an adjourned meeting of court
set for July 20. Ho invites nn
expression from tho people cither
by letter, petition or in person
This is nn excellent suggestion
that our pcoplo should take ad
vantago of and lot the court
know their feelings. Tho propo
sition of finnncing this addition
to tho present course is one that
requires attention. Mr. Saw
hill, who is one of tho C. G
Chapman party, states that tho
Crook county court has appro
priated $250 toward a special
short course for tho coming year
and it is the intention to see
other county courts in tho Inter
ior and ask for a similar appro
priation. In case this is secured
tho Agricultural College will send
out professors to spend a consid
erable time in each county, bring
ing tho usual short course given
at the college to the people. This
is nn excellent move that will
solve the problem for this season
nnd at tho January term arrange
ments may be made to put the
regular course in school.
The city council hns taken
steps to build a new side walk
from tho entrance of the fair
grounds to the new school build
ing. This will be of great con
venience to tho people living in
that portion of tho city as they
now have to come over toward
tho business portion of tho city
to get to the now school building.
Tho walk will run north from the
gate at tho fair grounds passing
in front of tho Randall and Fnrro
residences in Morrison's addi

I want to draw the attention
of tho people to tho manner in
which the Oregon & Western
Colonization Co. offer their land
for lease. The lcaao is an in
strument drawn so ns to cover
everything for their own benefit,
and none for tho renter. But
that is not enough. You will
find a clause inserted, that, any
time during your lease on 30
dayB notice, you will havo to
movo off.
Now then gentlemon you nil
know, that this land is nil cover
ed with sago brush, and hns to
bo cleared before wo can uso it,
nlso we have to fence the land.
Can you do this in 30 days, nnd
got nny benefit from your lenso?
No. Docs tho Bo-callcd 0. & W.
C. Co agrco to pay for work? No.
Thoy simply any get off in 30
days, and by signing their form
of lease, you ngrco to do so.
Now if this is called colonizing n
country nnd giving tho pcoplo a
chance to make good thoy will
havo to show me. Again you
may havo tho land plowed in the
fall expecting to put your crop
in in the spring, but between fall
and spring you get this notice,
whnt will you do. Movo off of
course or have trouble.
To lease this company's land
is n farce, and has no weight
pertaining to good for the renter,
so beware.
Gentlemen, I had a notice from
tills company served on me tho
first day of this month to move
off in 10 days and my crop of be
tween 25 nnd 30 acres is just
heading out what do you think
oi tno gall; and they nnd no
lease signed by me either. After
such work ns this the people can
expect anything.
If the 0. &. W. C. Co. think
they can move this crop of barley
off in 10 days and it just heading
out I want to sco how they do it
But by their actions you ull can
sco what their intentions are, to
"gull" tho Oregon people if pos
sible. Take the lease and read
itjhcn tack the 30 dnys notice
clause to it, and what have you, I
call it an unfair, dirty, rotton
paper to place before the public
and nsk them to sign it.
This is only an explanation of
the leasing proposition. If the
readers of this paper aro interes
ted in this matter there will he
another piece in next week's is
suo calling your attention to the
manner in which this land is sold
and how thoy camo to have this
land to handle and the kind of
titlo they hold then you can judgo
for yourselves whether you are
safe in buying or not
