It is foolish to turn down a
rood proposition that may ap
pear on the ballot thru personal
prejudice. Right will prevail
Yentluilly ind there is no reason

piqued about something. Hot

votinsr. Remember, we came
early not losing our High
School thru just such methods
and Bucn improvements nre nee
waaryto the advnncment of the
eountry. Other measures or im
provements may be just as es
sential if the voter will lay aside
prejudice and look at the matter
is an impartial way. It isn't nl
ivaya best to listen to the
"knocker" on every occasion,
besides one should look for the
inceptive for such before form

that a man's politics doesn't make

Tho Institute held this week
was one of the niost profitable
ones ever held in tho county.
There was practically a full at
tendance of tho tenchers of tho
county and tho several instruc
tors hero from outsido points
were proficient in every respect,
giving the local instructors some
good advice nnd help.
The unfortunnto accident which
prevented State Supt Alderman
being hero to take pnrt was great
ly regretted by all and tho teach
ers sent him a telogram express
ing sympathy and hope for speedy
recovery. The four instructors
who did arrive did splendid work
and there was not a dull hour
during the entire session. Tho
primary work was admirable
handled by Mrs. Fnlkerson, Miss
Cambcll charmed her audioncc
with delightful illustrated talks
on 'art; Mr. Soever gave good
talks on geography and language,
and Dr. Winship was a host in
himself. The Doctor also gave
two excellent lectures at tho
Presbyterian church on Monday
and Tuesdny evenings.
Space forbids a detailed ac
count of these very entertaining
and profitable lectures, but every
one who failed to hear them
missed a literary treat
Prof. Jokisch of the high school
gave a good talk on the responsi
bility of the teacher for tho mor
al development of the pupil. In
all it was a very successful in
stitute that will result in much
good to the schools of Harney
Refuge For China Pheasants
Game Warden Mace has suc
ceeded In .securing a big territory
as a refuge for the China pheas
anta;recently shipped in here by
the state at the solicitation of
the Rod and Gun Club. The
birds.are yet in confinement but
will be liberated later on the pre
eeryc established for them thru
the work ofJMr. Mace.
He has succeeded in securing all
the territory from his place just
across : Sirvies River east of
Burns' to the upper Mace place,
formerly the Blume place, some
20 mifes up the river, reserved
for the protection of such birds
for a term of years and the farm
ers will not only protect them,
preventing any shooting on the
landsi but will also caro for the
birdB In the winter when it is
seen hey need "shelter and feed.
Withn8uch ah arrangement these
came birds should propagate ran
idly"and' become plentiful in a
shori time.
Next season will witness a far

tresent has been, thus it will be
seanthat Harney county is go

Popular Candidate Spoke
In Burns Last Night
Dr. Harry Lane of Portland,
democratic candidate for United
.States Senntor, spoke at the
court house last night to a very
largo crowd and made a very
favorable impression. Dr. Lane
is a very popular man in this
state and has held public posi
tions of trust several times. He
is a sincere man who makes a
good talk and his friends feel
that with three republicans in
' the race for the place he will bo
I the choice of the voters of Ore
gon for the office to which he as
pires. Dr. Lane is not an ora
tor, but a man of good principles
and his manner of presenting
the questions now before the
people are such as to win favor.
It was one of the largest poli
tical gatherings assembled in
this city during the present cam
paign, and those attending were
well repaid. Judge Biggs made
an excellent address and was
followed by J. F. Mahon, dem
ocratic candidate for state sena
tor in this district Jim made a
decided hit and surprised his
friends by making a fine talk.
Dr. Lane left today accompanied
by Mr. Mahon for Malheur
county points and he will go
from there to Portland where he
will likely remain until election
time, as it seems that place will
bo the particular battle ground of
the campaign for U. S. Senator.
Grand Matron Visits Chapter.
Worthy Grand Matron Marga
ret Hayter of the Eastern Star
visited the local Chapter in this
city on Monday night and it was
a very enjoyable and profitable
occasion for all who attended.
There were two candidates initi
ated, Mr. and Mrs. Claude Smyth,
and after the work Mrs. Hayter
complimented tho Chapter on its
excellence in the work and also
gave the members some good ad
vice and instructions. After tho
lodge work a dainty banquet was
served and a general social time
had. There were a few visitors
from other Chapters present
During her stay in this city
Mrs. Hayter was a guest at the
homo of Mr. and Mrs. Julian
Byrd, she being an old time ac
quaintance of tho family, her
home being in Dallas.

The Shooting Tournament
Local Gun Club men were dis
appointed in not having any out
side teams here last Saturday to
compete with them in tho shoot
ing tournment, but they went
out and had some fun among
themselves. They spent over
half a day at the traps and made
some of the poorest scores yet
recorded by the local shooters.
In fact it was so poor they havo
purposely lost the score book in
order to prevent Tho Times
Herald man from publishing
them. That is not the excuse
given, but he is positive such is
the case. Frank Triske made
the highest score, but aside from
this we are unable to get any
other information.
Avoid Scdntivo Cough Medicine..
If you want to contribute dir
ectly totheoccuranceof capillary
bronchitis and pneumonia use
cough medicines that contain
codine, morphine, heroin and
other sedatives when you havo a
cough or cold. An expectorant
like Chamberlain's Cough Remc
dv is what is needed. That
cleans out the culture beds or
breeding places for tho germs of
pneumonia never results from a
cold when Chamberlain'B Cough
Remedy is used. It has a world
wild reputation for it cures. It
contains no morphine or other
sedative. For aale by all dealers
Tho Bworn statements of Lifo
Insurance Companies on file at
tho State Insurance Department,
Salem, show that In 1009, 1910,
1911, Oregon Life tho Only Life
Insurance Company Exclusively
Oregon, sold more policies in
Oregon than any other company.
In 1912 Oregon Life is surpass
ing all its previous records.

timo ago wo promised
tho votorB of Harney county that
whenever it become an estab
lished fact, that Mr. A. K. Rich-
ardson hnd yielded to the wishes
of tho Drewsey Livestock Asso
ciation, and his numoroUB friends,
that wo would present him to
tho voters of Harney county na
an independent candidate for
sheriff and givo you our reasons
for bo doing. Wo havo nothing
against any of tho other nomi
nees for sheriff. Aa far as wo
know they nro honorable men.
Our reasons for putting Mr,
Richardson out tiro as follews:
1st Wo contend that a Bheriff
must bo bor i n sheriff, or ho will
not bo a success. ,
2nd. His past record will bear
us out, thnt ho is a natural born
!lrd. Ho has put more outlawB
behind tho bars during his term
of office than all tho shorjffs
since tho beginning of tho county,
lth. Wo nro inviting immlgra
tion and wo should havo a Bheriff
with a Btato wide reputation so
they will know what class of
people wo nro inviting, and that
it is no place for a crook to
5th. Should a now man bo
elected that was equally as good
aa he, tho bars would bo left
down till he built up a reputa
tion nnd by that time tho same
old cry would go out "Ho has
had tho office long enough, pass
it, on to tho next"
Oth. Mr. Hichnrdson ia better
qualified to fill tho office than ho
over was,
Viewing it from a fair nnd im
partial standpoint, is thcro any
reason for making a chango in
tho sheriffs office.

New Goods! New System!
Low, Prices!
Having cut out the long credit
system, we are prepared to give
prices which will pay you to buy at
home. 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
place if you can; if not trade with
our competitor; but Trade at Home
