A meeting of the C vie Im
provement Club was held last
Monday evening and the. la lies
brought out more candidates for
the city election next Tuesday.
Nominating petitions for Sam
Mothershead and .lames Lamp
"hire for mayor and councilman
respectively, wore signed by the
Indies, Mrs Copper and others
(not. including Mr. Ilissner as
she took no part in it other than
sign them) circulated them later.
Just what interest they will take
in voting remains to be seen as
several signed the petitions who
frankly stated at the time they
had no intention of voting.
The Times-Herald can say with
authority that neither Mothera
head or Lampshire are opposed
to water and sewer. They are
in the same position as practical
ly every property owner in Burns,
in favor of an adequate and san'-
tary water and sewer system,
provided it can be installed com
plete within the possible bonds
that can be floated against the
town. That is the attitude of
almost every real property own
er, their only concern being the
selection of competent, far-sight
ed, successful men to take charge
of the matter.
A statement covering city re
ceipts and disbursements for a
period of some three years was
brought to this office yesterday
afternoon for publication but it
was too long for us to handle to
day. It will be published in
pamphlet form, however, so the
voters may be informed.
The candidates are: G. W
Clevenger. Sam Mothershead for
mayor; Frank Davey, James
Lampshire, A. C. Welcome, Ceo.
W. Young, councilmen; A. M.
Byrd, D. M. McDade. J. J. Pat
terson, recorder; Mamie Winters,
J. C Welcome Jr., treasurer; W.

Public School Report
The Times-Herald has received
a report of the public school ol
this city together with those
standing highest in the mid-winter
examinations. It is imposs
ible to give this report in full
this week. Principal Sutton re
marks in the re'wrt that there
were no tardies in the seventh
and eighth grades during tho
month just closed.
Those taking the highest stand
ing in their respective grades:
First grade, Arthur Thornburg
with a standing of 99); second
grade, Walter Walkup, 100: third
grade, William McHose, 5(84;
fourth grade, Jo Cook, i)4; fifth
grade, Regina Schwartz, 92fi;
sixth grade, Agnes roley, 948;
seventh grade, Uda Hayes 934;
eighth grade, Ellen Geer. 998.
Mr. Sutton adds the following
comment respecting the exam in
atien: "the showing made indi
cates there is need of closer ai -plication
on the partof the pupils
if it is their intention to make
the most of their opportunities."
Mail Service Discontinued
The last mail to leave Ruins
under Mr. Woldenberg's service
was taken out this morning. He
is not going to continue and it ia
something of a problem when
regular service over this line will
be resumed. It will be difficult
to secure service even for the
period asked hy the government
bids to be opened here March 11,
as the time of the contract will
not justify the necessary outlay
for equipment. Postmaster Log
gan has posted a notice in his of
fice to the effect that mail will be
dispatched from this office every
morning until further notice, but
as to getting in mail over the
Prairie line he doesn't know just
what will be done. There will
be no mail "from that direction
today and should the mails be
routed over the Vale line the
present contractors will also suspend.
We wish to announce to
the public that we have pur
chased the entire hardware
stock belonging to the firm
of Geer & Cummins. We
I will continue to conduct the
business at the same stand
and ask a continuance of
I your valued patronage.
As a special inducement we give
10 per cent discount on all sales.
