met with unexpected success and a
most appreciative audience.
All were in good spirits and re
ported a fine reception at every stop
with a ready response from the peo

like the one at Silver Creek they
were certainly gratifying and Inspir

IIUIKK GREATER INTKKKHT
IN PROPOSED MOM MKNT
Ed. Morgan returned the fore part
of this week from a trip to Idaho.
He formerly lived there and was
back on a visit and to look after a
few business matters. He reports
excellent crops over there where
they have an abundance of water
for Irrigation and an altitude so
much lower than this. However the
fruit crop Is a failure this season.
Mr. Morgan came to this office
and asked what further had been
done about the proposed monument
to Harney county boys. The Tlmes-
The followiii Igetter was received
Ing in a way. C. W. Ixiggan had con
tributed $1.00 alSO J. E. ItlillllS.eV.'lle
but that Is as far as It had gotton.
We really feel a little guilty in not
giving this matter more aggltation
but hasp been more or less engrossed
In other things. Yet th. Is a most
worthy undertaking aud one. with
such merit ti at It should Itfrva the
active support of our pe-jpl3. cv'e
realize these are busy times and wo
all each and every one have our parti
cular duties to perform. That a cer
tain amount of war work is ours to
do whether It be by Bod Cross work,
soliciting funds for some worthy
cause, using our Influence to promote
the sale of Liberty Bonds, Thrift
Stamps and War Stamps, or whatever
It be, yet we might find some one
who can spare the time to give this
matter of a monument to the Harney
county boys who are serving their
country in war work.
It isn't necessary that this monu
ment be erected at this time but the
mi essery funds should be collected
and placed where it would bo avail
able .it the proper time.
Tho suggestion to build a monu
ment to tho boys who give up their
lives in this war lias ulso been given
a start hut allowed lo languish. It was
proposed to do this with War Saving
Stamps. The first donation to this
and the suggestion came from Mrs.
Ted Haye. who gave a War Stamp
WhTcn was mutched by The Times
Herald. These things are worthy and
should bo given attention by some
one or more than one in fact.
The Times-Herald does not desire
to be custodian of such funds but will
act temporarily until an organization
may be effected to take care of them
BILL HART AT LIBERTY
One of the things which makes
Western photodramas starring Wil

his use of none but dyod-ln-tho-wool.

ine eharaclors in his supporting cast.
Hurt not only must plan and act his
his own role, but also painstakingly
rehuarse the parts given to thoso big
hearted follows, who, although pro
ficient In the "S RV of the range
often are woefully lacking In soreen
ability. If it were not that Hart, who
Is a Western ma. and a big favorite
with the punchers, knows how to
overcome their natural bashfuluess
before teaching them the rudiments
of acting, many of his pictures would
be much less true to the real West in
Its palmy pioneer days. Hart's first
offering under the Artcrnft trade
mark Is "The Narrow Trail." which
will be seen at The Liberty on next
Wednesday night. It was directed by
Lambert Hlllyer under the super

MiV.B, AND PATRIOTIC SILVER
The manager of this great rellg
ous weekly had the pleasure of
meeting with many of his old time
friends of Silver Creek Thursday, ev
ening at the Liberty Loan nteetiitg
which was followed by a Bed Cross
dance and supper. He was accom
panied over by Judge Levens, Mr
Allen Biggs and Evelyn Byrd. Judge
Levens was not a very good sport,
pleading he could not dance he went,
home with the Liberty Loan speak
ers and W. Y. King commandeered
to drive "Doc Yak" back and to wait
the pleasure of tho other member
of the party to start. The real sec
ret of the matter was that Mr. Wat
klns had told the boss of the big
chicken supper served his party ut
the home of Mrs. Frank Dibble and
the further suspicious evidence of
numerous boxes and baskets taken
from (he automobiles as the neigh
bors arrived for the meeting, had
aroused his curiosity as to their con
tents. He didn't dance couldn't

staying, with the result that the par
