Frank Fister was in town this
week on business connected with
the suit for railroad right of way

canyon. Mr. Fister thinks the
matter can be adjusted without
going into court, as he is willing
to settle on a basis of what has
boen paid his neighbors for right
of way, although his place is cut
in two and all the water would
be fenced off by the railroad,
leaving it most inconvenient so
far as stock purposes are concern
ed. Julian Byrd, who has had the
greater port inn of the town clock'
fund us trustee, has received a
proposition from the Presbyterian
church building committee to the
effect that the committee pledges
its to build a clock tower on the
church and furnish whatever bal
ance is needed to get a good four
dial striking clock. It was origin
ally intended to place the town
clock on the court house but as
the building of a new court house
is not considered in the immedi
ate future and as the church is to
be a modern structure, centrally
located on high ground, he is in
clined to accept the proposition
unless some valid reason is
brought to his attention why it
should not be thus disposed of.
He is tired of being responsible
for the fund and as we greatly
need a uniform time in Burns it
will be a convenience to all.

pupils who take part and it is de
sired to have the entire program
over as early as possible. The
admission price is only 25 cents,
mere trifle, but was placed at
that figure in order that a large
number might be thus able to
contribute toward the fund for
Mr. Carroll. Every 26 cent piece
will help and it is hoped to see a
large attendance. The program
will be moat entertaining as there
are some fine numbers. The big
orchestra numbers at the begin
ning of the program will be par
ticularly pleasing as there will be
more violins than has ever been

While delivering cattle last
Monday to Phil Smith, Wm.
Dunn met with a painful accident
as a result he is in town sintering
from a badly broken and dislocat
ed shoulder. Mr. Smith had
thrown down a long wire gate to
allow some of the cattle to
pass out but the entire bunch
started to getaway and Mr. Dunn
started to head them. He ran
his horse to the opening and in
turning to start quickly in an
other direction he did not notice
that one of the horse's feet had
caught in the wire lying on the
ground and when he came to the
end of it the horse was thrown
violently to the ground throwing
his rider very hard on his shoul
der. The fall stunned Mr. Dunn
somewhat but when he finally
became conscious he could move
his arm and it was thought it
was not badly injured. An ex
amination by the doctor, how
ever, proved it quite serious.
