We notice by tb« last iuo« of the Klamath Falla (Oregon) Herald 're ceived at this office, that our old friend and “pa"*" Jack Houston la beoomlng a full-fledged theatrical magnate. Jack baa many friends in these parts who will be glad to see him climb the ladder of fame and fortune. Says the Klamath Herald: “Mr. and Mre. J. V. Houston will leave i n the morning for Portland. After a short stay there they will visit Seattle and San Francisco be fore their return home. “Mr. Houston is making this trip /nalnly in the Interest of his theatri /oul business. He expects to lease ' his other store buildings and will de vote hie entire time to the three play houses at Klamath Falls, Merrill and Bonansa. He will purohase a new moving picture machine for the Klamath Falls bouse so that he will have a machine for eaoh of the thea ters in the Klamath County circuit. Tbs now machine will be one of the beat that can be obtained on the market. He will also arrange for better service in attractive pictures. “Mr. Houston’s trip to Seattle will be for the purpose of msking ar rangements to secure good attrac tions when the railroad it In opera tion to this city. These shows will have to be billed a long time 1q ad vance, but Mr. Houston feels confi dent that tbo bettor class of shows would be justified in playlng~here ami that the support will be suffi cient to enable him to offer a guar antee. “The new Houston Opera House is now equipped to handle anything which has been showing between Portland and San Francisco. It has excellent scenery and stage settings and has a large seating capacity. The stage Is built the standard size and will accommodate*most of the shows on the road.” Crucify Him! Charles Duffy was among the out of-town attepdants at the dance last night.—Craig Courier. « Say, boys, haul him up and try him for high treason and all kinds of misdemeanors! The idea!

Beaman, of Denver, has discovered that the part of the forest reserves are illegal, namely, that part or parts formed out of the old Ute Indian reservation. The greater part of the White River forest reserve was formerly part of the Ute lands, and the law says it shall be sold for $1.26 per acre—for the benefit of the Indians. The editor of Thk Hcbald and others in this valley have been “on to" this clause in the Ute treaty for years % but never thought it worth while to bring the the matter to puh llo notice. Treaties with the Indians never have Leen faithfully carried out by the whites or the national govern* meat, and we don't expect to see the present case made an exception to the rule. a Buford School Entertainment. by o. 8. School closed here the 10th Inst. Miss Hitchman gave an entertain ment, followed by a dance, to mark the end of the term, and she achieved another well deserved success. Never in the history of the school have the closing exercises been so appropriately selected, so carefully arranged and splendidly carried out by pupils and teacher as on this oc casion. The decorations were artis tic—red, white and blue streamers, and flags. The charming and clever naturalness of the smaller children in their various parts, and the per fect manner in which the older pu pils performed their roles, won fre quent and appreciative applause. The singing was a treat and a sur prise to most of those present. This feature alone would have done credit to any of the outside schools. The crowd was the largest that ever gathered In the neighborhood, as besides those living nearby many came from down the river, and sev efal from Meeker attended. The dance was the merriest yet given. The music was by Messrs. Pollard. Nitnerick and Hay, and Jim Horn was floor manager. The supper Was excellent. Miss Hltchman's abilities as a teacher are now so well known that no‘comment is needed. It is suffi cient to say that she has given the very best of satisfaction to the par ents, and that she possesses the re spect and affection of the pupils. And within the space of a few brief months she has made a legion of; friends. i A “GENTLEMAN CAPPER." My firm was exceedingly liberal, and never questioned my expanse accounts. My monthly cigar mid i restaurant bills were from $250 to SBOO. To entertain customers was part of my occupation, and these ex penses did not matter when the cus tomers was a good trader. Mind, I had no inducements to offer the people who did business with me, other than any other New York Stock Exchange house offered. The rules of the New York Stock »Ex- tie all its members to oue routine of business. If I secured new customers it was on personal grounds, and not because I could offer them any better terms than other houses. Within a year and a half I built up a business of from 1,000 to 6,oooshares a day—representing a profit of about $110.60 to S7OO a day to my firm. My salary was raised $2,000 a year, and I reoeived a handsome cash bonus. Not quite three weeks after my salary had been raised my firm failed. My customers, who had lost whatever they had on deposit, felt that I should have known of the cri sis, and given them a .chance to withdraw their funds. The ink upon the ticker announcing the suspension was hardly dry when another Stock Exchange house offered me the same salary, if I cared to associate myself with them. What am I? Merely a procurer of gamblers. The total profits which my firm derived In almost three years, from the orders of actual in vestors, would not have covered the tips that I handed out in a few months. The money I received from my firm was merely a part of the “kitty" which I had procured. The New York police have their eyes on a class of men who hang around the gambliqg-house district and are known as “cappers." They are in the same business that I am, but They work for an unlicensed game. The game of which I am a hireling is sanctioned by the state, looked up to by society. lam called a broker, a manager of a Stock Ex change house—a “gentleman," don’t you see, not a “capper."—From “A Hireling of Wall Street," in the April Everybody’#.

This spring the ground is in splendid condition, the moisture in many fields being down three feet or more. This is enough to insure a stand, if not al lowed to waste by evaporation. To bold it, disc or harrow until ready to plow. When plowing, harrow every hour. Plow as deen as possible, the deeper the better; eight Inches is the minimum. Plant ten poudds to the acre in rich, deep, sandy loam, any time In April. It Will do well anywhere where the soil It deep and rich, and in some adobe, kfat sometimes fails in adobe, barren tsands, and clays or clayed gravels. The second year It can be harrowed lightly. After that it should be disced after each cutting. If it Jives until August it is established and the tops may dry. but it will bud again from the roots. The first year you get no crop. It can be cut, weeds and all, in August and left on the ground. Nothing should ever be planted with it. It Is easy to get a stand.—E. R. Parsons in Ranch and Range, Denver. Using the “Stick,” A Denver dispatch of Monday says: Governor Shafroth today wielded the “bi« stick" in a message to the as sembly demanding that the legisla ture pass the measures pledged In tbs Democratic platform. The gov ernor was busy all Saturday and Sunday on the message and after the text was completed it was submitted to former Governor C. S. Thomas. While the message makes no specific reference to bills which have failed, It declares that any members who have changed their minds since the election as to their party pledges should resign. The Norwood Record has survived the wear, tear, grind, kicks and knocks of infantile journalism and starts out in the second round of its career well on its feet, having won a decision from the great referee—time. A part of ita success Is embodied in the Measles it has made; for a pub lication without enemies is like a duck without a pool in which to gratify the instincts of its nature. Fortunately for the Record, its friends vastly outnumber its foes. And the Record’s friends belong to the class of fair-minded, intelligent people, who do not boycott a publica tion because they are not allowed to dictate its course in things large and small. To this class we acknowb-dg • we are indebted for many favors, mid we will spare no effort in the future to merit tlietr good will and patronage. [As Jim is an old “hunkie" of ours we wish hitn all manner of success in the future.— Editor Herald.[ WlUle Whitla, the eight-year-old boy who was kidnapped from school in Sharon, Pa., on Thursday of last week, was returned to his father at Cleveland, Ohio, last Monday after payment of SIO,OOO ransom. On the following day a man and woman were arrested on suspicion of being the kidnapers, and it Is reported that the woman has made a confession. If proven guilty they will doubtless be giveii the extreme penalty of the law, as the feeling against them Is very high. Congressman Ed Taylor of this state played to his usual good luck and drew ticket No. 3 in the lottery for choice of spats in the national house. It will just be Ed’s luck to draw Guggenheim’s seat in the seb ate in 1012. Note The Herald'S prediction. President Taft’s message, calling the extra session of congress togeth er, was the shortest document of its kind In the history of national legis lation. Good for Taft! He is start ing out well. Former President Roosevelt de parted Tuesday for his much-adver tised African hunt. True to his spectacular Instincts Mr. Roosevelt wore his old “Rough Rider” uniform. Kindell, the now famous Denver railroad rate-buster, has won another victory in his war on high and dis criminating rates. It la thought that the fellows who robbed the Rio Grande train near Denver on February 18th, have been caught. Lieutenant Shackelton of the Brit ish navy has succeeded In getting to within 111 miles of the south pole. Things political are warm in Den ver these days—even if the weather in the Queen City is cold. It la well to watch the virtues that employ press agents. Painting Time . ..
