Big Gathering and Dem onstration With Mothers' Parade The writer met the Liberty Ixian campaigners on Silver Creek Thurs day night where a very enthusiastic meeting was held and where they 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 ple. If the former meetings were like the one at Silver Creek they were certainly gratifying and Inspir ing, for the people responded cheer ing themselves for more Bonds than fully and without hesitation, pledg it had been hoped for. The (iimpalgn party left last Sal urday afternoon and the first meet ing was held at Crane where they WCTt met by Sergeant Major Frank Christ) and Elton Watklns, of the Department of Justice, who were the principal speakers during the tour.

However, It is hoped to have the entire amount subscribed by B o'clock Saturday, Sept. 28.

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 properly. o BILL HART AT LIBERTY WEDNESDAY. One of the things which makes Western photodramas starring Wil liam S. so realistic and convincing is his use of none but dyod-ln-tho-wool. nevor-b e c n-citrrlcd-below-t h o-knee cowpunchers. Thus procuring genu 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 vision of the well-known producer, Thoraus H. luce.

That's the spirit of the country and our answer to the peace proposal of the enemy. Dan Yarlen arrived home last Saturday from California where he ucenmpanled Mrs. Yarlen who will remain there for the winter. Mrs. Varien is not enjoying good health and she finds the milder climate of lower California beneficial. MiV.B, AND PATRIOTIC SILVER CREEK 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 dance In fact yet he insisted on staying, with the result that the par ty didn't get back to Burns until an unseemly hour and tho next morning he resembled a follow who had beeu to Denlo. The Sliver Creek people ure not half-baked Americans In any manner nor do they do .things in a half-hearted way. Whatever Is determined u -on by that neighborhood they do. At the close of tho Liberty Leai: speaking they were given an oppor tunity to volunteer their subscrip tion to the Bonds and before Billic Farre could get his blanks unroll. .. dial old patriot Hill Johnson was at his elbow ready with his chock and pen to take up Ma quota. He wa (Illicitly followed by others and for almost an hour Mr. Farre was kept busy with the. aid of It. J. William in taking '.ire of the volunteer sit' seriptions. The Bed Cross da.'ice that tollOWi ' was a very enjoyable social affa-r and the supptr served at midnight (lie kind that would make a man go hack to Silver Creek every tine he hears of a similar occasion.
