Provides Ways And Means For The
Farmers To Help Themselves By
Organizing Clubs And Making
Drives To Exterminate The Most
Troublesome Pest In Existence
At the last session of the
county court a numerously signed
petition was presented asking a
bounty be placed on rabbits.
This the court could find no au
thority to do but showed a dis
position to help by furnishing
the necessary wire netting to
build pens and wings. This is
right. The fanner should help
himself and with the volunteer
help of individuals much can be
accomplished toward the exter
mination of the pests.
In this connection the sugges

part to do something for tho ox
termination of tho pests.

Best Production Yd Undertaken By The
Tonawama Stock Company To Present
This Big Play On Next Saturday Ere.
Nov. 23rd At The Tonawama Theatre
Owinjr to tho contemplated de

tion to next Saturday, Nov. 23rd,
when tho exceptionally fine
and popular production entitled
"Tho Girl of tho Golden West"
will bo BuiRed. This is decidedly
tho best bill ever attempted by
the local players and as each
character has been well cast and
tho players well up in their lines
it will proven most enjoyable af
fair. This will bo a farewell for
Mr. Welker who has long been
identified with the theatrical
performances of this city and as
testimonial of their esteem and
appreciation of his services there

Carl has a good position with
the government in Honolulu as a
special harbor guard and has a
cnancc to ndvan o as rapidly as
his services will justify. Mrs.
Welker and littledaughter will
remain here for the winter and
expect to join him next May.
The Tonawama Stock Co., will
continuo to play stock during the
season, the management having
completed arrangements where
by some good talent will produce
at least one popular play during
each month. There will be no
attempt to fill Mr. Welker's place
at Tonawama for tho present;
the management has a good man
for the place but as he has a
good position in Ios Angeles for
tho winter ho will bo permitted
to remain during the time of his
contract. This gentlemen is one
of tho popular theatrical men of
the west ami a fine musician for
both p'cturcs and orclipstrn. and
with his wife who is a gofld act
ress, Tonawama will have a fine
team that will bo a drawing card

The Presbyterian church of 030 it is the intention to raise

modern church building for some
time and tho past summer the
matter was taken up at n meeting
or tho church people and friends.
At this meeting a building com
mittee was chosen and plans laid
for a campaign in tho future. It
seemed right to go to work at
the present time to ascertain
what the sentiment of the busi
ness men and friends in this city
would do therefore Win. I'arre

a subscription paper and although
they have seen comparatively
few they have met with such un
looked for success that the now
church is now an assured fact.
With what was available in the
church, Indies aid and assistance
from tho organization of the Pres
byterian church building funds
they have now in tho neighbor
hood of'$8.000 raised with many
of the church friends yet to sco
who are sure to subscribe liberal
ly. It has been decided to erect the
now building on the site now
occupied by tho church buildings
and the old ono removed or sold.
The plans are all in readiness
and no doubt a contract will be
let in tho near future to have the
building contemplated next fall.
While the building is to cost $10,-
fumished, healing plant, etc,
Tho amounts subscribed are to
be paid in five equal payments,

The building committee feels
much encouraged over tho liber

men have responded. They will
continue the work of soliciting

month and hope to have complet

The people of Burns, have ever
shown a liberal disposition in
such public matters; they have
contributed to the erection of not
only the churches of this city but
have helped to build school
houses in other district, nssisted
in roads, or whatever might tend
to the betterment of the country
in general. They have been the
only support toward exploiting
the resources of Harney county,
sent delegations to various meet
ings that had for their purpose
the upbuilding of this section;
been persistent in their eirortfl

promotion of irrigation projects.
Such a disposition should be pro

too risky to attempt on any large
scale, but with proper care and
on tracts favorably situated we
can and will produce all tho fruit

of the most important crops of

Especially is this true of the
small varieties. Strawberries,

ably well in this section and all
the hardy apples are a success.
Don't overlook the family or

the future in Harney county. It
