A Lack of Unity.
Wo nro nil working for a com
mon cause and each wants to do
his part toward tho upbuilding of
tho country and our little city,
yet wo nro working nt cross pur
poses to some extent. Ono man
Bays thcother fellow is not doing
tho right thing, although ho is
given credit for being sincere in
hie efforts. Wouldn't it bo bet
ter to all get together and dis
cuss matters and sco if we can't
settlo on some plan of action that
will meet general approval?
That's about tho only way to ac
complish nnything worth while.
Tho Times-Herald would bo in an
awful fix if it followed the advise
of all those who suggest for there
is a great difference of opinion.
Isn't it possible that tho business
interests of Burns can be more a
unit on matters for the public
good? Think this over and see
if wo are not just a little selfish
and not giving our neighbor cred
it for what he is doing. Talk it
over with him and then some
Tho matter of sewerage and
water, for instance, is a good
subject to discuss; the weeds that
are so unsightly and which nro
going to cause us trouble is an
other; the general condition of
the country with the prospects
of great change when the rail
roads come and our oil prospects
are no longer prospects but reali
ties. There are many things in
common that should be given attention.

Pioneer Lady Dead.
Mrs. Mary E. Haley died at
her home near the lake last Wed
nesday afternoon, September 18,
aged 77 years. She had been in
robust health up until last Janu
ary and this spring her physician
ed by members and friends of
the school and reports of the sev
eral departments will be given as
well as an appropriate address by
the pastor. A special Rally Day

Preceding the Sunday observ

Mrs. Gemberhng and Mrs. I.
Schwartz are providing the re
freshments for both socials; Mrs.

to her advanced age did not con
sider an operation advisable.
Mrs. Haley came to Harney Val
ley with her family in 1886 nnd
has resided here since. Her
husband died 19 years ago nnd
was buried at Baker. Sho was
married in Illinois and crossed
the plains in 1852 coming to Ore
gon but later they moved to Cali
fornia, living there from 18G7
until 1883 when they returned to
Monmouth, Polk county and from
that place here.
Mrs. Haley is survived by five
children, E. T. and Scott Haley
of this county, Mrs. Bart Cronin
of Ontario, Mrs. John Gardner
and Mrs. George L. Baker both
of whom reside in this county.
Deceased was highly respected by
the pioneer people of this county
who knew her. The funeral was
held in this city Thursday after
noon, services being conducted
by Rev. Dr. Babbidge of tho
Presbyterian church at the ceme

Newspapers Good Work
If .the people of any commun
ity were as loyal to the interests
of their community or town as
the newspapers, we are sure a
more congenial state of affairs
would result, and what a splen
did competition this country
would witness.
But they are not. Nor is any
considerable part of the people.
Nor are all the businessmen or
the farmers and ranchers. That
town succeeds just in propor
tion to the zeal with which its
leading citizens back up the
patriotism of its newspapers.
The true newspaper devotes
columns and pages of space to
boosting tho city in which it is
published. The most loyal and
devoted boosters of any city are
found in its newspaper offices.
There is a Bneering class of peo
ple in every city who, finding no
good in anything, decry the
.newspapers as mongers of sensa
tion and destroyers of character.
They demand the news, and
tho newspaper that is a faithful
mirror holds up to its readers the
reflection of their own doings,
if tho community is bad its nows-
paper will show it. and if it is
it good, Ml clu1 UJUiWlbU.

Cattle Buyers Here.
Tho cattle markot scorns to be

had ono beneficial effect as it has
allowed tho rango to recover from

2gwGoods! New System!
Low Prices!
Having cut out the long credit
system, we are prepared to give
E rices which will pay you to buy at
ome. Remember, when you buy
at home you create a market for
what you have to sell, no matter
what it consists of, whether it be
farm products, labor or legal ad
vise, you don't help your own com
munity, when you go outside to
trade; you don't help the farmers
when you buy outside flour. Last
year many people sent away and
went outside to trade. What is the
result? The wheels of industry
have been idle, no building, no bus
iness, no work, no market. Heavy
crops are being harvested and still
a large portion of the old crop is
on hand. It is now time for the
people to get together if they want
prosperity at home. Trade at our
