up at once. We're going to raise
all the hogs we consume, more
chickens and we just as well
keep the money spent for dairy

April 29, Mrs. Delnora E. K ester
son, aged 32 years, 10 months
and 27 days. While her death
was expected from the dread
disease from which she was
suffering it was not thought she
would pass away so quickly.
Mrs. Kesterson suffered from
tuberculosis. Deceased was born
in Kansas June 2, 1880, coming
to Oregon with her parents tv o
years later and in 1890 cum to
Burns where she spent her girl
hood. She attended school in

had been living near Diamond
fpr several years and Mr. Kester
son and two of the children re
mained there but Mrs. Kesterson
came to the home of her parents
in this city several weeks ago to
be near her physician. Mrs.
Kesterson is also survived by her
parents, two brothers and four
sisters. The funeral was held
Thursday afternoon from the
Masonic hall, the Order of East
tern Star conducting the service,
assisted by Dr. Babbidge of the
Presbyterian church. Mrs. Kes
terson was a member of the
Eastern Star and also a member
of the local Women of Woodcraft
Circle, having an insurance policy
in the latter. The funeral was
largely attended by sorrowing
friends who held her in high
esteem. The bereaved relatives
have the sympathy of thiB com
munity where all have resided
for so many years.
Delightful Piano Recital
One of the most delightful
musical programs ever rendered
in Burns was given at Tonawama
Tuesday evening of thin week by
the piano pupil i of Mrs. C. A.
Rembold assisted by Mjrh Ixuel
Smith and Piatt Randall in vocal
numbers and Agnos Foley with
two violin solos. The entire
program was thornuuhly enjoyed
by a large company of people
that filled every available seat in
the house. Mrs. Rembold was
highly complimented and praised
for her efforts us the pupils
showed marked improvement in
the artistic work, some of them
renderind very difficult numbers.
Burns is certainly to be con
gratulated on having such an ub'e
lady to instruct the young people
in music and as Mm. Rembold is
a thorough artist she is develop
ing some exceptional talent in
her line of work. Such entertain
ments ub that of Tuesday even
ing gives Burns a decided ad
vantage by way of comparison
in musical lines and those who
took part are receiving the con
gratulations of all.
The Times-Herald published the
program in its last issue and
therefore it will not be repeated
thiB week. The character of
music and the manner of handl
ing it by very young pupils was
the wonder of many present who
are musical and fully appreciate

Specifications For
New Church Coming.
Dr. C. C. Babbidge of the
First Presbyterian church re
ceived a telegram Thursday from
the architect stating thut com
plete specifications for the new
church building had been sent by
mail and the plans would follow
on the next mail. The plans
and specifications call for stone
to first floor, brick above to win
dow heads and frame and metal
lathe and plaster above floor of
auditorium. The plans call for
the building complete.
The building committee has
been quite active the past few
days and it is expected to have
the old building removed and the
contract let for the new building
within a very short time. The
first assessment on the money
subscribed for the building has
been called and the committee
thus has funds to prosecute the
work which will be pushed to
completion as rapidly as possible,
making it almost certain the new
church will be ready for occup
ancy in the early autumn.
