A LAUDABLE ENTERPRISE
The Times-Herald is a money
making institution, very true; if
it wasn't the proprietor wouldn't
be in the business lonp. Hut
dear readers, did you ever stop
to consider that almost every
dollar of the earnings of the busi
ness goes back into the institu
tion, right in our stock of trade,
such as buildings, new machin
ery, new type, new equipment
of every description. The small
surplus does not go into the cof
fera of someone for personal gain;
it goes first for the improvement
of the paper, which inures to
your benefit also, and for the up
building of this town and county.
The Times-Herald has labored
indefatigable for the best inter
ests of Burns and Harney County
and the results of its labors have
been very noticeable. In the
space of time Burns has grown
from a very small western prairie
hamlet to a very creditable sized
city with over a thousand popu
lation and blessed with several
blocks of flourishing substantial
business houses, managed by a
coterie of business men who are
the salt of the earth, generous,
public spirited and possessed of
marked business ability -on par
with some of the most metropoli
tan cities in the state. All of
the same class of work done in i who a few years ago went to
California to make their home.
Mrs. Marion Wilson, a grand
daughter, has written a noto to
this oflice which states that Mr.
Dickenson passed away on April
2, last, nfter an illness of some
period. Mrs. Dickenson died on
Juno 22 from paralysis at the
homo of her daughter, Mrs. Hat
tie Hiscrodt in Annnhein, Califor
nia. Mr. Dickenson was also n
resident of that place at the time
of his death. Mrs. Dickenson's
death was a shock as she was aj
parcntly as well as ever two
hours before. Both were 8)
These respected old people will
be remembered by many old time
residents of this city where they
lived for about 17 years. Three
of their sons live here, A. B.,
Dee and Kay Dickenson; Mrs.
Marion Wilson and Mrs. Bert
Hibbard aro grand daughters.

and the workmanship is first class
in every respect and deserves
hearty support. This laundry is
equipped to handle all the laun
dry in Burns, and certainly if
we are desirous of encouraging
other investors to locate here
with us, and give us mctropo
1 i t a n accommodations, wo
should all show our apprecia
tion by patronizing those who
have and aro making good.
While we do not believe the
Chinese laundry is handling tho
Kreatest amount of work, yet it
would cease to exist if consider
able amount of work was not ac
corded it. There is no reasonable
or sudicicnt argument that can
be advanced for patronizing one
who sends his money out of tho
country in preference to one who
invests it all hero in business in
your home town, and gives em
ployment to your own people,
who in turn, make their home
here and distribute their yearly
earnings along the different
routes of their trade centers. Is
it not reasonable to reflect and
meditate whether or not your
patronage ought to go to the man
who lives and let live or to the for the Kellogg Stage Co. and
one who is hear today and gone had driven in from Canyon City

many could go and thorcforo CO
names wero solectcd from which

taken it is quite likely there wi)l

Death Came Very Suddenly
Newall Hall, an old timo pio
neer of this section dropped dead
Thursday morning at Hardisty
station on Trout creek from henrt
disease. Ho was driving stage
tomorrow. Think it over.
Horse Races Tomorrow
Two match races are scheduled
for tomorrow nfternoon at the
fair grounds, the first between
Tom Stephens' colt and Neil Cul
ver's saddle horse for a side bet
of $100.00 Another is between
Alex Hanley's horse and some
stranger. Both should be good.
Besides these there will be a
this has been accomplished by saddle horse race for half the
consistent boosting, by not only Kate receipts as on last bunday,
The Times-Herald but by good
live energetic foreseeing citizens
and without the aid of railroads.
The management of The Times
Herald is pleased to admit that
it has been a success from a
financial standpoint and why
not, we have labored incessantly
and under adverse circumstances.
Personally, we have but our plant
to show for it, but it is an insti
tution of which Burns may feel
proud, and will compare favora
bly with those of railroad towns
five times the size.
However these strides have
not been accomplished without
appreciation by our patrons, as is
evidenced by the fact that The
Times-Herald has a largo list of
loyal subscribers and a volume of
The Times-Herald has certain
ly endeavored to do its share to
ward the successful devolopment
of Burns and Harney County and
we are proud of our efforts. Wc
sincerely trust our friends and
readers feel likewise.
Jack Johnson, the horse trainer
is master of ceremonies and will
preside at tho gate where an ad
mission of 25cts for adults and
lfjctsfor children will bo charged,
There was a good attendance
at the matinee races last Sun
day afternoon and considerable
interest Bhown. The races on to
morrow will be just as good or
perhaps better. Chas. Bedell's
"Seventy" won the match race
last Sunday and Neil Culver's
horse won the saddle race.
Burns Flour In Demand
me nest way to encourage
men and investors to come to our
little city to invest their money
and make friends among us, is
to give them your eneourag -ment
and patronage in their us
pective line of business. Wc
have here in Burns, a very credi
table and modern laundry, tho
investment in capital approxi
mately runs into the neighbor
hood of $4,000, which is main
tained for the benefit of our citi
zens in general. The work turn

Several largo teams from out
side towns loaded Burns flour at
mill the last few days. It sel
dom happens that local flour is
used as extensively as the flour
made by the Burns Flour Milling
Company and it i3 creditable to
a community that is assisting in
every way to boost this home
production. The Lawen Mer
cantile Co., must bo doing a
rushing business, as large team
outfits are hauling flour to Lawen

Ho had eaten his breakfast and
the team was hitched ready to
continue the Jonrney to Burns
when he asked Mrs, Dillard to
hold the team while ho got a
drink of water. He had gotten
inside tho yard fenco when he
suddenly dropped and from what
can bo learned his death was in
stantaneous. There was no one there but Al
lie Dillard and his wife and they
immediately telephoned in and
asked for help and what to do.
There wa3 no inquest held as it
was not deemed necessary. Mr.
Hall had not complained in any
way of feeling bad and his sud
den demise was something of a
shock to the Dillards. Tho re
mains were brought to Burns and
the funeral was held yesterday
morning from Clovengcr's un
Deceased was 00 years of age,
having como hero in tho early
'80. He had no relatives in this
section, but we aro informed had
two sisters living in New Jersey.
Ho had a nephew out here to
visit him a few years ago. We
are unable to learn much of Mr.
Hall, altho he had resided hero
lor ai least ;ju years, no one in
tho city is familiar with his
movements before coming hero.
Ho was employed for years on
tho double 0 ranch under Issac
Foster and was known far and
