"The commencement of this

"old timers" who lived in the

the company was dispossessing

matter is that action has not been
so long delayed. Fifteen con

Talent of Burns
Mrs. J. L. C-ault arrived home
from Portland the fore part of
this week where she had been for
several weeks under the tuition
of George W. Reed, a noted
vocalist. The people of Burns
are justly proud of Mrs. Gault's
talents and her friends are pleas
ed when they find others ap
preciate them also. She has de
lighted audiences in this city with
her beautiful singing and it is a
pleasure to her friends that she
is not neglecting its cultivation
by taking advantage of such
teachers as Mr. Reed. The
Portland Journal has the follow
ing respecting her work in a re
cent appearance in Pertland:
Tuesday evening at the Upper
Drive home of Mr. and Mrs.
Carlos L. Reed, George Wilbur
Reed presented Mrs. James Les
ter Gault, of Burns, Ore. , in an
interesting recital. The singer
is the possessor of a rich bell
like voice which she has under
very good control. She paints
dramatic passages with intense
coloring, then outlines delicate
ones with the ease and refine
ment of the artist. Versatility
expresses completely the singer's
chief characteristic. Her pro
gram included many interesting
numbers besides a cycle of songs,
"Ever since I have been in
Harney County there has been
more or less agitation about the
opening of a wagon road to the
south. The peak of a load is
what the settler can pull over

parently been impossible to get

The Act of our State Legislature,

side of each line for public road
purposes, onouia tne company

Report of Murdered
Man s Mistake.
niiem uicnanisoii received a
oaaiy mixed telearam Wednen
day from Sheriff Snyder of Lake
county to tne effect that a man
namea Newman had come to
i.ake view and reported finding a
dead man on Rock creek in the
southern part of this county and
that ho had been murdered. He
asked if Mr. Richardson could
meet him at the P Ranch or in
that neighborhood to investigate
the supposed murder. Yester
day it was reported there was
nothing in the story and last
night the Lake count v shoi-iir
called Mr. Richardson from the
i' ilanch on the phone and staled
there was nothinur to the rumor
stating further he would be over
today When a full exn anation of
the matter would be had.
A clever arrangement of paint
cans and appropriate advertising
material form the basis of an ex
ceedingly attractive window in
Burns Hardware Co., store this
week. A special feature of the
display is a set of old weather
beaten carriage sjioke with half
of the surface of the SPOSSI treat
ed lo one cost oi Acme tjuality
Carriage Paint each spoke show
ing a different color of the paint.
The following statement is made
on one of the display cards: "You
can make your old buggy look
new for a dollar by the use of
this paint. "
With this suggestion and the
very small outlay necessary, we
are sure that all of the shabby
vehicles in this terrirory will im
mediately take on a new ap
pearance. Besides being good for all kinds
of vehicles, attractive display
signs illustrate in colors a great
many other uses for this wonder
ful paint in and about the home.
The display is a creditable one
and well worth inspecting.
