MAHL SERVICE CUT
The peoplo of the Punliandle aro
up in arms at the rccont order
that beginning August 7th (yea-
torday) tho train sei vico between
Huntington and Robinette would
bo cut to three trains a week in
stead of six as has been the
schedulo for years past.
Consideripg tho action of tho
railway ofilcipls as oxtrcmslv un
just, as is cuts our mail service
in half, a number of represcnta
uvo cmzonH qi battle Valley on
Tuesday night sent a telegram to
Congressman N. J. Sinnott at
Washington, asking him to im
mediately taKe the matter up
with tho Post Office Denarlment
s and if tho railroad's order could
not bo cancelled to try nnd have
a Star routo established between
Baker and Cornucopia.
rtii ti
inreo mans in seven days is
less service than that accorded
this section over thirty yeais ago
when I ho settlers were few and
far between and whon but hun
dreds were served where there
are now thousands. Richland,
New Bridge, Halfway and Cor
nucopia business interests will
bo seriously affected by the ordpi
and all residents discommoded to
trgreut extent.
nfflnv In tho. Piinliniwllrt lmui.
always contended that as'good if
not a btttcr mail, service could JUt
maintained by a Star route from
Baker, in fact the matter was
presented to the postal author
ities a few years ago but was not
approved for certain reasons. As
the matter now stands wo feel
confident that a petition asking
forasix-day mail- Scivicn from
Baker to Cornucopia via Sparta,
Richland and Halfway would
be signed by ninety-nine percent
of the patrons on tiio route, and
bo approved by the P. 0. depart
ment. We'll Help Manage.
You often hear it said that So-
and-so is a good worker and tries
to save Iiis money, BUT, lie does
mot 83cm to get ahead ho don't
seem to bo a good manager.
Right thero is where we could
halp Mr. So-and-so. It's a part
of our business to help people
manage. Wq not only help them
to save and safeguard their earn
ings but it is ourambition to see
them make more; It's the back
bone of our policy to see that our
customers prosper, tlnd we would
like to knovv If wo can bo of ser
vice to you.

RICHLAND, OREGON, 'THURSDAY,
fl IN SERVICE WRITE
EJmor IHtch recently wrote his
aunt, Norn Moody,7 (1 hat "I am
still alive yet, but' sometimes I
feel like every minute will bo my
last one but I manage to get by
nil right. On July 24th I look
n hike of 28 miles with a CO-lb
pack, including gun on my shoul
der. I guess it wont last long
hero for I'll bo going across the
water. They are picking out tho
best men now to send across and
I have stood overy test so far so
I guess lama good man or I'd
be all in by this time, for believe
me it is no snap,' There aro seven
in the squad with me and wo are
all first class soldiers r.ow. I
guess you know what that means
to me, and I feel good over it."
W. C. Tuttle, Co. G, Fifth En
gineers, Camp Humphrey, Va.,
in a letter to his friend, Fred L.
Cover, writes:
"Have been here since June 1,
there are about 20 of us re-cnlist-cd
men that are with this com
pany, the balance are from the
draft. In all there are around
300 men in this company. Can't
tell how long 1 will be here, but
it will probably be for some time
as I help drill' the recruits. It is
some job, too, as it is awful hot
here now. You should see some
of, the now men sweaty The last
bunch is from Now York; some
of them weighed 250 pounds but
we sweat them out in drill. 1
would like to have old B. pooper
hero so I could drill him about
four hours a day,"
George E. Tremain, 18th Co.,
oth Un., IGGth Depot Brigade,
Camo Lewis, Wash., has written
W. C. Raley as follows: "I saw
Everett Brooks the other day, he
is cooking for the Gth Co., IGGth
Depot Brigade. I like it fine
hero, and can hardly wait for the
time to go across."
Think It Oven
We often wonder if the resi
dents of Eagle Valley fully ap
preciate the advantage of having
fruit in abundance. Possibly the
following extract taken from a
letter received from Western Ne
braska may cause our readers io
give that subject a thought:
"We have been living in this
glorious region of sugar beets,
alfalfa, irrigation, Russians and
Japs for so long that If we wore
to see fruit on the tree we'd shy
at it like a cayuse colt at a tumble
weed. As 'you aro acquainted
with Nebraska, you aro aware
that this portion is approximately
5,000 feet above sea level with
tho seasons so short that fruit is
nil except that which prows on
tho express companies lines and
dispensed by tho thriving mer
chants ati'a price so high that one
can tasto tho silver."

Sparta Project Assured.
. Ihe meeting held last Satur
day a(; Sparta for the purpose of
making preliminary plans for or
ganizing an irrigation project for
that district, was. a grand' suc
cess. Farm Agent Tweed ex
plained the plan in detail and
stated that he would recommend
the scheme in every particular.
It was explained to those pres
ent that the first utep necessary
would be to raise about $2000 to
defray preliminary expenses such
as surveying etc. We are told
that nearly that sum has already
been pledged, there being, about
125 landowners who are directly
interested in tho plan, which will
bring water to more than 10,000
acres of productive soil.
The crowd was most enthus
iastic and full of confidence as to
tho success of tho undertaking,
and as tho residents of that dis
trict are notod for the manner in
which they "make things go"1
wo predict that boforo many
years have passed Sparta will be
noted as one of tho best, agricul
tural districts in Oregon,
