Advertising and
Local Paper
The relation of the local pa
per and the advertiser should
be congenial, as one is more
or less dependent upon the
other. When the advertiser
places advertising in the local
paper he expects results. The
newspaper when it accepts ad
vertising promises in eirect
that the paper 'has a local cir
culation commensurate vith
the rate charged.
Advertising should be given
in good faith as it is accepted
in good faith. It is purely a
business transaction. The
newspaper sells its space or
services, to the advertiser, just
as any one sells any other com
modity. There are three things for
the advertiser, to bear in mind.
First, he should map out a
systematic advertising cam
paign and be persistent in car
rying it out Second, he should
prepare his advertisements so
they are attractive, interesting
and convincing. Third, he
must back up his advertising
campaign with good service,
or he cannot expect to hold
his trade and get the best re
sults out of his advertising.
The advertiser must realize
that all responsibility for the
preparation of the advertise
ments are with himself. If
the advertisements have no
merit no results should be cx
pecten. It is rediculous to
blame the newspaper when
neither the advertisements nor
conditions warrant results.
There is no one more inter
ested in seeing advertisements
profitable than the newspaper,
as the advertising in the paper
s what makes the publication
of the paper possible, thus aid
ing in the dissemination of lo
cal news, the creation of local
interest, and the building of
the local community all of
which is necessary to the suc
cess of local business.
On the other hand tin iv
should be no one stronger in
his friendship for the local pa
per than the local advertiser.
The local newspaper is the
best friend the local advertiser
has. Hence the local paper
should not be treated as an
enemy, but rather as a friend
and semi-partner in the task of
business getting. J)
There is an undertone of senti
ment that crops out occasionally
against a private concern figur
ing on or putting in the irrigation
and drainage systems for the
necessary development of the
Harney Valley. There is a sort
of vague idea in some quarters
that State or Federal aid should
be sought. Under any method
we cannot get away from the
proposition that the land directly
benefited must stand the cost of
the service you are
- Bums, Oregon
the improvement It is very
doubtful whether the U. S. Fed
eral Reclamation service would
ever undertake the construction
of a system of irrigation to cover
privately owned lands, as are all
the lands included in the Silvies
River project. In any event the
enterprise would be long delay ed
as the service is short of funds
between a Tailor
75 1 even tor the completion 01 pro
jects already commenced. The
state, considering itself morally
bound under a Carey Act agree
ment has undertaken to fulfill its
obligation by advancing the funds
for the completion of the Colum
bia Southern Project, and that is
all it will be able to do for the
next two or three years. The
state certainly will never be able
to make a direct appropriation
for the development of privately
owned lands. An act as passed
by the last legislature providing
for the co-operation of the state
and federal service in making
preliminary investigations of the
water resources for irrigation
and power purposes. That simply
means a survey, estimates and
secunne data, and the money so
exended becomes a lien upon
the proposed project which must
be paid back before construction
is undertaken. This preliminary
work pertaining to the Harney
projects has all been done by
private parties, the greater part
of which has become matter of
public record and available for
u (. Should they fail in final
Were local conditions more
favorable the Irrigation District
plan provided by our state law
could be worked out This would
require an expensive election and
techincal and rotune court pro
ceedings bound around with red
tape and involves long delays.
This seems almost impossible on
account of conflicting interests.
After these matters have been
settled the district must then do
just what the private corporation
proposes to do, that is thrash out
the water right questions and
proceed to secure reservoir sites,
undoubtedly by condemnation.
The district must dispose of its
bonds for construction money,
and if such secureties could be
marketed at all it would be at a
discount which, at present would
more than equal the prospective
profits of a private concern.
State Leader Of Ag
riculture Appointed
Oregon Agricultural College,
Corvallis, Ore., Aug. 11. -The
appointment of H. T. French as
state agricultural leader, to have
direct charge of farm demonstra
tion and supervise the work of
the county agriculturists, has
been announcedby R. D. Hetzel,
director of the Extension division.
In referring to the new leader
Professor Hetzel said: "The
college is giving the farmers of
Oregon as their chief advison a
man who, for twelve years, was
closely identified with the agri
cultural development of Oregon
and thoroughly understands agri
cultural conditions in every part
of the state. His appointment
is an important step in the de
velopment of the extension ser
vice." The Lunaburg Dal ton & Co.
Department Store have cut high
prices and long credit. t f
A Meeting of Business Men
Called for Monday Night
to Discuss the Matter
While in Portland the manager
of this paper found the ommer-
cinl Club very Mixfottfl to have an
exhibit of the products of this
county to send to the Kastern
land shows and as those in charge
were so insistent ho promised to
see that a creditable exhibit of
agriculture would be gath red
and sent down. He met with
President Donegal and Secretary
liOggan of the Commercial Club
last evening and the matter was
discussed. Sam Mothershead
and Win. Farre, tho latter one of
the old time directors of the Har
ney County Fair association, were
also present and it was found
that there is a decided interest
among the business men of this
place to have a fair Oub fall, es
pecially since it is desirous of
securing a display to send out to
the land shows and after the
matter had been considered for a
time Mr. Donegan suggested a
meeting of the business men,
Commercial Club and stock hold
ers of the Fair Association for
Monday night at 8 o'clock to
get an expression and see if it
were possible to have a purely
agricultural fair in connection
with the school fair which is to
be held in this city beginning
Sept 30.
There is $650 available for fair
purposes, but this is not sufficient
to cover the premium list of for
mer years, therefore it was con
sidered an agricultural fair, leav
ing out the livestock, might be
financed, provided the business
interests of Rums would show a
disposition to help. Should it be
decided to hold a fair it will be
necessary for the stock holders
of the Fair Association to elect a
board of directors who will quali
fy and serve (those elected at the
annual meeting last .January re
fusing to serve. )
It is absolutely necessary that
all that will help this enterprise
be present Monday evening and
show a disixtsition to help or
there will not be any fair that's
a "cinch," as a' few men are
tired of carrying the burdens of
the exhibition without the mp
port of those receiving direct
benefit. It is up to the business
men whether we have a fair or
Business Conditions Good In
Harney County.
That business conditions in
this section are satisfactory is
reflected by the Government re
port of the First National Hank
to the Comptroller of the Cur
rency in resDonse to his official
call for statements at close of
business Aug. Oth. In view of
the fact that July and August
are naturally quiet months in a
business way in this section, the
report of this solid institution is
an excellent one, showing its
affairs to be in splendid Bhape.
The bank reports a capital and
surplus of $100,000.00, a cash
reserve of $110,980.78. while its
resources total $639,615.76.
The First National is recogniz
ed as one of the strongest and
most conservatively managed
country banks in the Northwest
Ever ready to lend its assistance
in a legitimate way towards up
building the business interests
of this section, it has attracted a
large clientele who appreciate
the efficient service rendered, and
the courteous treatment uni
versally accorded all its patrons.

And Talk Good Roads
It is the purpose of a meeting

Rumored Sale of The
Sumpter Valley R. R.
A special dispatch from Baker,
Or., to the Journal says: The
presence here today of David C.
Eccles, son of the late David
Eccles, president and principal
stockholder of the Sumpter Val
ley railway, gave rise to further
rumors concerning the sale of tho
S. V. to the O.-W. R. AN., so
often reported of late, and as
often denied by the officials of
both companies.
Guy L. Anderson, former 0.
W. official and present head of
the Sumpter Valley as general
manager, and other officials, as
usual, deny the visit had any
significance in the reported deal
and local people are beginning to
believe the oft-repeated tale of a
sale is made of whole cloth. On
the other hand, those who be
lieve in the deal point out that
O.-W. R. & N. agents have ac
quired property at Sumpter and
other places, of no use to the
company otherwise. The S. V.
has acquired another big bunch
of timber land adjacent to its
terminal at Prairie City, in Grant
Carrol Cecil and son Pat
motored in from their Silver
Creek ranch Thursday.
Mrs. G. W. Clevenger and son
Geary left Sunday for their an
nual visit and outing over at
Prairie City.
Miss Laura Dawson was in the
city this week, her first visit
since her trip to the East in com
pany with Phil Bates and party.
The Misses Lulu and Agnes
Miller have returned home from
an extended visit with relatives
and friends over at Canyon City.
Mrs. Gardner of Cutmeat S.
D. arrived last week and will
remain some time in making final
proof on her desert claim south
east of town.
Dr. Minnie Hand reports the
birth of a son to Mr. and Mrs.
Alfred West'at Iawen on Aug. 1
and a son to Mr. and Mrs Fushug
at Harriman on Aug. 8.
Harry Danley, Ernest Musick,
Clifford Reed and Grover Jameson
returned this week from a vaca
tion trip to the mountains. They
had a fine time, succeeded in
bagging some deer and lots of
Dr. Griffith expects to leave
tomorrow morning for Klamath
where he will take in the Develop
ment League meeting and extend
his visit to Crater Lake and other
points of interest before return
ing home. He will be absent a
couple of weeks. "Curly" Pot
