F. 10, Lindsity 1ms purchased
tho Cooper Auto Truck Lino bo-1
tween Halfway and Hakcr and
took entire charge of same on
Monday, October 1st. Starting
in with four large trucks of his
own, ho is negotiating for the
uao of Btill another until tho fruit
season is ovei.
While Mr. Lindsay will handle
anything and everything, no mat
te how largo or small, at this
particular time he is devoting his
ftntire energies in'handling Eagle
Valley's fruit croo. Running the
trucks day and night, our orchard
is U are given an opportunity to
get their crops to market without
that he will sen! his trucks for
fruit or produce wherever it is
possible for a motor driven ve
hiclo tp go.
"Lindsay," as hv renurally
known, states that it it n chief
ambition is to give the Panhandle
a freight service worthy of the
name and will run the trucks as
late as the weather will permit.
He will employ local help when
ever possible, and should there
fore be given the j atronage of
nil those in tho community who
have need for his services; His
oarn- wnore rtnyoracrs ion win
receive prompt attention.
In speaking of tho proposed
highway between Baker and Cor
nucopia, Mr. L'ndsay said he was
working hard to have same come
viu the Powder River route as it
would then not only be on a water
prade but would also allow auto
traffic the year around and make
freight rates lower,

A LETTER FROM FRANCE
Tracy Matthews recently re
ceived a letter from Corporal M.
Eylar Staight, who is now "Some-)
where in i'Vance. " The letter had
been censured and a sentence cut
out, and under the rules govern
ing tho press we likowise omit a
few sentences. . Hdvayer, jt will
be interesting reading:
"1 like it fine here and the peo
ple treat us swell. Everything is
cheap so we have a pretty good
time. The people here live mostly
on beer, wine, cheese and rye
bread. Wine and beer is Mc per
quart in our money. There are
lots of girls and, believe me, they
are pretty. We have quite a time
talking with them. They learn
English better than we do French.
I couH write all nightbut will
have to wait anil tell it to you.
I sure wish you were with me.
Everything is so different here
one never gets tired running
around. Well, must close; tell
my friends hello for me. Regards
Corporal M. Eylar Staight.

The Dairy Law.
Many complaints are heard re
garding the dairy law that went
into effect last month, and very
fow in this section have paid any
attention to it. Tlvat the law has
somo good points, no one will
deny; but all will agree that it is
unjust to tho farmers and ranch
ers wlio occasionally have a roll
or two of butter to sell.
We are told that the testing is
done without charge to the ani
mal's owner, therefore we sug
gest that every person who owns
cattle should write the stato vet
erinary at once, requesting that
he test every cow you own no
matter whether It is one or a
thousand, so long as it Is done
without expense to you.

That the Sparta district is hard
to equal and cannot be excelled
as a dry farming country, no one
will deny if they will but examine
the exhibit displayed in the east
window of the News offipe.
Potatoes, tomatoes, carrots,
beans, cabbage, parsnips, corn,
muskmelons, squash, stock beats
and' cucumbers are, shoytn..,AU
afeo'f good size and entirely' free
I from disease such as is usually
J met with in other districts.
These were raised by Rev. J.
! M. Johnson, who has made an
; affidavit that everything shown
was grown on dry land, not irri
; gated or watered, and not near
any spring or ditch where the
ground might have secured mois
ture by sub-irrigation, and also
that from the time of planting
until gathering, the crops were
benefitted by no rainfall.
The exhibit shows clearly that
that any man with brains, muscle
and ambition can enjoy an ex
cellent living and make money on
a Sparta homestead. Mr. John
son tells us that the possibilities
of the section are practically Un
known, as but very little of the
best land has as yet been cleared,
and predicts that within the next
few years the Sparta country will
be one of foremost agricultural
districts in the Northwest.
Car Shortage Predicted
A circular issued by the Inter
national Harvester Co. gives a
timely warning to all whose busi
ness is affected by the movement
of freight, saying: "We antici
pate that, notwithstanding the
utmost efforts of the railroads,
this fall and winter will witness
the worst freight tie-up the coun
try has over known." They fur
ther add thaf'Itis the duty there
fore, of all business men, citizens
and shippers generally, to order
at onco all necessaries that must
come by rail and ship all freight
without delay, anticipating de
liveries whereever possible."
