Mail On Regular Schedule
Burns is again in communica

being deprived of mail for a
week, caused by Contractor Kel
Iork abandoning the routes lead

tor of the postal department came
into Canyon last week and has
made a temporary contract withabout w minxlteB, and' at 9 sharp.
Plans and preparations for the
big masquerade ball to be given
by the Tonawama Band on Friday
evening, January 24th, are well
under way, and present indica

and amuseing evening in store
for those who wish to attend
and certainly everyone ought to
Those who do not care to dance

L. Woldenberg, who formerly
had the contract before Mr. Kel
logg took it and now we are re
ceiving our mails regularly from
that direction and much earlier
than under the old contract. Yet
this is but a temporary arrange
ment, but it will continue until
the department can arrange for
another permanent contract.
The mail between here and
Vale is still rather uncertain, al
though several trips have been
made and the mail is coming in
occasionally from that direction.
Special Inspector Whitney came
in yesterday by way of Vale,
getting a team and bringing in
some mail as he came. Mr.
Whitney does not know just
what will be done at present.
He states he was ordered to come
here and investigate the situa
tion and make a report. Wheth
er the department will wait for
this report before making any
definite arrangements Mr. Whit
ney does not know. He assures
us, however, that we will receive

action would be taken with the
abandonment of the contract and
whether the bondsmen would be
compelled to finish the contract.
Mr. Whitney said he knew noth

Mr. Woldenberg has gotten
his equipment together and is
now furnishing most satisfactory
service which will be continued
until permanent arrangements
are made. So long as this ser
vice continues the people here
will not complain.
the dancing will commence. An
admission will be charged every -
txxiy ana no one ought to miss
this-as everyone will get their
money's wortn and at the same
time be assisting a most deserv
ing and worthy organization.
The boys promise those at
tending the best time of the sea
son, and with the very latest and
best music, which they are re
hearsing twice a week, we know
they will make good. The band
at present is bigger and better
than ever, and if given proper
support and encouragment this
winter, will prove themselves a
most efficient aggregation during
the coming summer, which" be
sides being a boosting and draw
ing card for Burns, will be both
a pleasure ana profit to every
citizen in town, and a pleasant
revelation to the stranger and
visitor within our city. Boost
for the band and it will boost
Burns as nothing else can.
Further particulars will be
given next week and in the col

Several Malheur county stock

which invariably "sticks in their

mentioned is the question of high
freight rates. Railroad charges

such a great distance is a sort of
nightmare to thc cattlemen of
Eastern Oregon, but usually they
only think so and have made little
if any personal inquiry.
A number of stockmen of the
Idaho benches, notably at Pay
ette, Parma and Weiser, have re
cently shipped in large numbers
of Mexican cattle, and say the
charges are not prohibitive. It
would seem, therefore, that if
the Idaho cattlemen can afford
to do this, their brethren here in
Malheur county might go and
do likewise -Enterprise.

. ..Three principles for irrigation
procedure are before the Oregon
Irrigation Congress, in its sec
ond annual convention at the Im
perial Hotel, says the Telegram.
One is Federal Government work,
with unlimited capital and low
interest charges behind it. An
other is Federal or state aid work,
in which the government credit
la used, but more of the expidi
tion and elasticity of private en
terprises could be attained. The
third is a district plan, bonding
patented property to secure the
funds, and applying the proceeds
according to the immediate
wisni's of the district residents
bearing the burden.
We have come to assassinate
the Carey act and bury it with
appropriate celebration," Asa B
Thompson of Echo, chairman of
the executive committee of the
congress is quoted in the Journal.
' TVe shall endeavor to establish
the district plan as a better
method. It mokes a municipality

Under the provisions of the
current appropriation net for the
department of Agriculture au
thorizing the inauguration of ex
periments in the breeding of
horses for military purposes and
providing $60,000 for that pur
pose, the Secretary of Agricul
ture, with the concurrence of the
Secretary of war, has appointed
the following gentlemen as ad
visory agents in the selection of
stallions and to assist in the opera
tion of the Government's plan:
Mr. Henry Fairfax, of Virginia,
for Thoroughbreds; Mr. C. L.
Railey, of Kentucky, for Ameri
can Saddlehorses; Mr. Walter
Palmer, of Illinois, for Standard
breds; Mr. Maxwell Evarts, of
Vermont, for Morgans.
Each gentleman acts with the
offiicers of the Government in the
selection of stallions of the breed
he represents. The Secretary of
War has designated Lieut Col.
D. S. Stanley of the Quarter
master Corps to represent the
Armv, and the Secretary of Agri
culture has designated Mr. Geo
rge M. Rommel, Chief of the
Animal Husbandry Division of
the Bureau of Animal Industry,
to represent the Department of
Thirteen stallions have been
purchased to date, as follews:
Thoreughbreds: Gold Heels,
by The Bard; dam, Heel and Toe.
Charcot, by Common; dam Span
Saddle herses: Young Bill, by
Golden King; dam by Bourbon
Chief. Fair Acre King, by Bour
bon King; dam, Aletha Chief.
Richmond Choice, by Rex Pea-
vine; dam by King Richard.
Standardbreds: MacNunne, by
MacDougall; dam, The Nunne.
Sigler, by Red Medium; dam,
Maud Sigler. BeGue, by Wig
gins; dam, Lady Crescent Twi

May Fry. Lord Rion, by Arion;
dam, Madge Fullerton.
Mergans: Daniel Webster
Lambert, by Joe Allen. Madison
Lambert, by IambertB. Prince
M, by Ethan Allen 3d; dam
All of these horses are well
bred and registered, and some
are well known individuals. Gold
Heels, for example, had a con
spicuous career on the turf;
Common, the sire of Charcot,
was by isonomy, winner or the
Berby and other important stakes
in England. All the Saddle hor
ses thus far purchased have had
winning records at the Kentucky
fairs. Of the Standardbreds,
MacMunne in that he, like Car
mon at the Colorado stud of the
Department of Agriculture, is a
grandson of Robert McGregor.
Sigler was first in two-year-old
class for Standardbred trotters
at the National Horse Show in
1911; and Lord Rion'ssire, Arion,
sold for $126,000. The Morgans
thus far purchased are excellent
representatives of the breed and
should prove useful as sires of
cavalry horses of good size and
conformation. The sire of Prince
M, Ethan Allen the 3d, has left
a remaraaDie impress on the
character of the Morgans of the
east side of Vermont.
The Department of Agricul
ture expects to make other pur
chases during the winter.
Oregon Eastern is
in Mile of Tunnel.
Monday of this week witnessed
the completion of tracklaying on
the Oregon Eastern as far as the
third crossing of tho Malheur
river at Mile post 37.6.
About Monday next, it will be
possible to cross the bridge at
this point and lay another lap of
900 feet more to the fourth cross
ing of the river, where another
watery gap in the right of way
will check the tracklayers for a
few days only.
Concrete work on the bridge I
piers is practically finished, says
Chief Engineer Osborn, and will
be only a matter of another week
or ten days before the track will
be laid clear to the east portals
of the tunnel, at Mile 38.2. The
tunnel is more than two thirds
excavated, and when operations
are resumed in April, it will be
possible to continue the track
laying many miles west from the
2600-foot tunnel. Enterprise.

Hi Stomach Trouble, Ovar
Mr. Dyspeptic, would you not
like to feel that your stomach
troubles were over, that you
could eat any kind of food you
desired without injury? That
may seem so unlikely to you that
you do not even hope for an end
ing of your trouble, but permit j
us to assure you that it is not
altogether impossible. If others !
can be cured permanently, and j
thousands have been, why not
you? Sohn H. Barker, of Battle
Creek, Mich., is one of them.
He says, "I was troubled with
heart-burn, indigestion, and liver
complaint until I used Chamber
lain's Tablets, then my trouble
was over." Sold by 'All Dealers.
