"One Flog, One I.nud, One Heart,
One Nation For Evermore"
Oliver Wendall Holmes
One of tho grandest, mul most
glorious exhibitions of patriotism
appealing to mankind, was truly
demonstrated at Burns last
Thursday- tho occasion being
Bright and early in tho morn
ing tho sun rose in all its shining
splendor, easting its warm rays
of light upon earth and mankind,
1 inspiring ono and all with the
! ideal morning and giving vent to
I tho sacred day of reverence, and
i the duty before us.
j Under the blue canopy of the
Heavens and with tho radiant
,rays of old Sol spreading its
light of gladness upon us, nil
i was soon activity. Old Glory
was flung to the breeze by a
number of business houses, and
it floated proudly in tho air, ono
could not help feeling inspired
j with tho day's devotion to tho
cause held sacred by friends far
At 9 a. m. tho assembly call
was given, and in a brief apace
of time the Tonawama Hand
marched to a position in main
street were they played several
patriotic and appropriate selec
tions while the parade was being
formed and different positions
assigned to those who participat
ed. As the band played their
I first tune it was the signal that
! the exercises were on, and the
I crowd immediately responded.
I At the conclusion of the music,
the parade was formed into line
i and marched to the cemetery in
I the following order headed by
Old Glory and its guard:
Commander, Carl W. Welker.

President Davidson of tho Ore

arrived hero Tuesday accompa
nied by a party of Great North
ern resresontntives. They were:
E. C. Leedy, Gonornl Immigra
tion Agont; F. W. Graham, West
ern Industrial and Immigration
Agent; C. C. Morrison, Immigra
tion Agent and lecturer who ac
companies tho exhibit "trains and
attends tho land shows; C. B.
Griflln, Immigration Agent who
has charge of tho Oregon exhibit
cur Inst season; T. L. McDonald,
Chief Clerk for Mr. Leedy; A. K.
Hardgrove, Exhibit Director. All
these gentlemen with tho excep
tion of Mr. Graham have head
quarters at St. Paul.
When asked the object of the
trip Mr. Leedy told Tho Times
Herald that they desired to get
information first hand respecting
this territory. The party lenre
scnts the publicity department
of tho Great Northern Railway
and will do more toward attract
ing people to this section and ad
vertising our resources than any
other set of men on similar work.
They were busy nil tho time they
were here asking questions nnd
Tuesday nfcrnoon the party
went to Harrimnn by way of
Lawen where they spent the
night returning around the north
ern part of the valley. They
covered a big territory and saw
some fine land. All wero anxious
to got any information that
would help the country in a pub
licity way and almost every busi
ness house in this city was viait-
The citizens of this city desired
to tender them a formal recep
tion but Mr. Leedy asked that
this be dispensed with as they
could get such information ns
they desire by interviewing peo
ple and nothing could be accom
plished nt a gathering other than
show tho appreciation of our
peeple: this they were aware of
and he further assures our people
of the kindly feeling tho party
had for courtesies shown them.
iuv puny tiaiti'ii jim uimuiij
respecting homestead lands in
this section, tho dry farm expen-
ments, the success of tlio present
farmers, the cost of locating on
homesteads, and in fact every-'
thing that would fie of benefit to
them in directing homeseekers
to the Big Harney Country. Mr.
Leedy says these trips are of
much greater benefit to them
and the country than many would
realize. They can tell people of
what they have actually seen
and with having met with peo
ple in the interior country. Mr.
Hardgrove prepares all their ex
hibits at tho hind shows nnd cars
and he and Mr. Graham went in
to detail with tho secrotary of
tho Fair Association respecting
the character of exhibit desired
from this section following tho
fair this fall. Mr. Hardgrove
will wiro a letter to bo publish
ed in Tho Timcs-IIcrnId in the
near future giving minute in
structions to exhibitors ns to how
to prepare their displays at tho
fair this fall- information that
will bo of great benefit to both
the exhibitor and the Fair Asso-elation.
Mr. Leedy assured tho fair
management that ho would uso
his influence, and wo may rest
assured of its being to our ad
vantage, with Mr. Hill and an
other silver cup to bo given away
at tho fair this fall. It will bo
given under similar conditions as
last year, for tho best general
exhibit of ono individual of farm,
irarden nnd fruit products. When
told of the addition to tho pre
mium list of tho school children
industrial exhibit Mr. Leedy!
showed much interest and it was
suggested that wo could liso more
Hill ribbons this fall. Ho told
tho secretary to send in an order
for all tho ribbons ho required.
This aasures tho school children

Contractors Called to Vale Prepare
For Immediate Construction of
Oregon & Eastern Railroad
A private letter just, received in this city from Vulo un
dor lato of May 110, it to definitely announced that ordeiH
have been iHHiiod for the iui mediate eoiiHtruotion of 80
inileHof tlio Oregon & 'lOiiHtern Railroad woHt to tlio Har
lb had been rumored, in thin city during the week that
Work inJUalhour canyon' luuhijejMed and the impreHHion
wiih general that no more eoiiHtruotion was contemplated
for tho present. Tho information jiiHt reeoived Htaten that
tho men wore called back to Vale to begin laying railH for
necenHury sidings and on that portion of the roadbed west
now complete Steel for this purpose is now in the yardB
This is a wolcomo announcement to the people of this
section and will add greatly to the influx of homeseokorH
and capitalists to the Big Harney Country where the de
velopment of vast resources have been rotarded through
lack of transportation. The announcement means that
tho big irrigation projects which will impound the waste
water will bo immediately constructed, covering thousands
of fertile acres with a system that, will cost less than half
what users are paying for water on other reclamation pro
jects. It means tho cutting up of largo land holdings into
tracts for the homo builder. In fact it is the beginning of
an era of great prosperity and advancement.

SUCCESS IN FARMING liiiRI!
Willi RIGHT .METHODS
Failure Duo Lnllrcty to Manner of Culli-
vatloD, Says I'ror. Scuddcr of
Stale Agricultural College
"Four fifths of tho settlors
who nro homesteading the dry
farming lands of Crook nnd Har
ney counties will make a failure
if they keep on with the methots
thoy nro now following. Prac
tically every ono of them could
make a success if ho would farm
tho way ho Bhould."
That is tho message of Prof
essor II. D. Scuddor, of tho Agri
cultural College. Professor Scud-
der knows what ho is talking
about. Agriculturally he is tho
best im formed man in Oregon.
Ho knows, at first huud, nil tho
acctions of Central Oregon. Ho
is intimately familiar with their
soil, their climate, rainfall, draw
backs and advantages.
That is not a discouraging mes
sage. It !b really ono vastly en
couraging. After he stated that
nearly every man in the home
stead country would fail, un'css
ho farms ns he should farm,
Professor Scudder added, even
more emphatically, that with
proper treatment every rancher
in tho southeast country can
readily make a success, and that
that territory can rank as a grain
producer with Wnsco ond Sher
man counties, spys the Bend
As in every new country, nl
ready in some districts there has
been a "crop" of homesteaders,
who either have abandoned their
claims or sold out. They blame
tho frosts, lack of rainfall or
hard pan, for their failure. In
reality these discouraged men
hnvc nothing to blame but them
selves. They simply didn't know
how. They didn't realize that
they had to make an investment
build a plant - before they
could turn out marketable goods.
?VttP Utti litJIi llllill IiiiL'U 1111111
jtiivj v;ii; i'uvi t'tit?t ii iiiv.iia
Frosts, small rain fall, hardpan
and other petty matters an; ridi
culed by Professor Scudder.
They are merely excuses for fail
ure, he says.
Tho matter is" ono of business.
To get results, the homesteaders
must first build up the plant
which is to turn out what they
wish to sell. Tho plant in funda
mental manufacturing establish
ment, tho soil. The product is
grain. To produce grain with
full success in n country whoso
rainfall is less than 20 inches it
is essential that every iossible
bit of moisture be concerved.
There lies the secret of the entire
matter in the southeast country,
und in every dry-farm section,
says Professor Scudder. Care
for the moisture properly and
good grain crops arc assured.
With a positive statement like
that from a man who knows, it
is worth while to pay heed.
Marvelous Musical Ability
Proficiency Displayed by Younger
Element of Burns at Tonawama
Tuesday Evening in Recital
To tho satisfaction and delight
of tho parents, and many friends
of the little children of Burns,
nnd also tho young ladies and
gentlemen who took part in the
joint recital of the classes in vo
cal and instrumental music at
tho TonawnmnThcatrolnst Tues
day evening under the supervis
ion of MrB. II. W. McIIoso and
Mrs M. V. Dodge, the program
as planned and prepared for the
public was given without the
least disappointment or mar, and
to state it was merely good would
bo putting it rather mildly-in
fact it was beyond expectation,
and .par excellence in extreme.
That the training of our young
er generation is in the hands of
most skillful and painstaking
teachers, is evident to even tho
most skeptical and the results
obtained and displayed at the re
cital given as before stated waa
almost beyond belief, yet was
gratifying in the extreme.
Those in attendance were loud
in praises of the good work ac
complished thus far, and pleased
beyond expression to note the
rapid advancement and progress
in proficiency displayed by all on
the program rendered to the pub
lic last Tuesday evening.
It wns manifest from the be
ginning, that the pupils had been
well taught and an excellent
foundation for future develop
ments along this line had been
laid, and was an assurance of
ultimate results, and would bear
abundant fruit and repay tho
student for their earlier patience
and perseverence, as well as the
Mrs. M. V. Dodge, instructress
of the violin and Mrs. H. W. Mc
Hose, vocalist and pianoist, can
woll feel proud of tho showing
made and tho splendid manner in
which members of the class dis
tinguished themselves on this
occasion, and have every reason
to feel encouraged over tho artis
tic and precise appearance the
students as a whole presented on
this special-occasion andcovered
themBelves with glory. The
class was the admiration of the
music loving public of Burns and
we do not hesitate to state that
their equal would be difficult to
to duplicate In the state, consid
ering point of age and advant
age, and if accomplishment
counts for advancemect in thin
line of vocation, we truly believe
our little ones are in a class by
themselves and are deserving of
all credit and encouragemet pos
sible. It would be an injus ice on our
part to make mention of any par
ticular point of proficiency, as it
waa all good exceedingly good,
and the impression made by the
class upon this, their first public
appearance, was faultless and
worthy of pupils years advanced
therefore it behooves us to re
frain from further cxaultation.
Considering the age of the lit
tle ones, it was truely marvelous
the manner in which tone and
technique predominated in almost
.every instance and especially in
the work of little Miss Folley,
who is justly entitled to special
mention, as her work on tho
violin simply charmed the aud
ience from start to finish and
called forth repeated encores.
Considering she is merely 11
years of age and with a little
over a years study, her work is
most commendable indeed, and
