C. C. Ajason brought jn a fc$
stocks of corn, t'other day, and.
by the way, if Jack's ladder had
only been corn" of this variety,
we would agree that it was an
easy stunt for Jack to ascend to
heaven on a bean stock. This
particular corn stood 12 1-2 feet!
in stocking feet, an 1 hadn't got
it's growth yet, will someone
kindly figure it s h'eight 'when
fulj grown, yfr. Mason has sev
eral acres 'of this "giant on his
place near New Bridge, whew,
talk about your dense forests,
how 'bout this one? This corn
is a silo variety known as the
'Mowo Gold Mine," this being
it's second year jn Eagle, where
it has certainly ' proven a gold
mine to silo owners.

said while visiting the NEWS
sanctum; Sparta can well be
proud for they have the greatest
wheat crop they over have had."
This js certainly good news.

Below we reproduce a few
chojee paragraphs taken from
the Boise Statesman that prpves
to ajl feadyr? of War Newst that
about l.alf of the stuff they read
is pure fiction of the "supposed''
and "it is reported"- variety.

BRITISH RULES RIGID
Unusual requirements regula
ting the sending of such mes
sages as the company is willing'
to accept have been dictated by
the French military authorities,
it was stated, and messages
which do not conform to the re
quirements will not be passed Jby
tho military censors, who have
been placed in all cab stations
within their territory. Code
language in cablegrams to the
affected countries is barred alto
gether, and will be, jt is believed
until the war is over,
Through every available chan
nel tbn Woatern Union is attemp
ting to obtain a substantial mod
ification ef what is described as
the "existing burdensome re
strictions which seemingly have
unnecessarily been imposed by
the British authorities."
These restrictions include the
requirement that full addresses,.
including street and number,
mut be given, and all messages
must bo oipned with full names
of sender?. This requirement,
the company declares, .serves to
augement tho length of mes
sages and greatly increases the
cost to the public. Messages
are accepted at senders' risk, as
censors will withhold all reforen
es to those suppressed.
DISPOSING OF TRAFFIC

not withstanding tho abnormal
conditions abroad, traffic was be

The band boys are getting
along fine with practice these

season for most of them. Every
practice night the whole bunch
are out and they stay at it till
the wee sma' hours. Pine Val
ley is going; to have tho best
band in Eastern Oregon if tlib
boys can make it by hard work..
There are some good bands in
Eastern Oregon, but they have
-been established a long time
Give our lads six more months
and they will knock the spots off
some of the best of them.

Pine Valley Band boyy and wish
