The piece of advertising ' matter is of such a character as to hold the attention of anyone and of ' such an artistic nature as to be pre- : served. 1 Although comparatively new and but little known the' wonder fully beautiful scenery along this new route from Cody, Wyom ing (the Eastern entrance) to Yellowstone Park, has already won everlasting admiration from the enthusiastic tourists who have traversed its picturesque course. Experienced tourists who know what’s what agree that in the sustained beauty and grand eur of its scenery, it far excels the Park itself, except in one par ticular—the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone River. The route lies across the “Buffalo Bill” country, through the precipitous Shoshone canyon and the lofty snow-capped evergreen covered mountains of the Absoraka range, via beautiful Sylvan pass. This great, government-maintained highway is one of the grandest mountain motor roads in existence today. The absence of settlements, the immediate nearness of wild game and the abundant mountain trout are in keeping with and add much to the rugged charm and primitive aspects of the coun try—truly the “Cali of the Wild” is insistently audible here. The Prince of Monaco, who hunted in this region sometime ago said: “1 was deeply impressed by the grandeur and beauty of the scenery. My admiration for your mountains is too deep for words. lam familiar with the beauties of Switzerland and Norway, but the Alps region seems small and artificial and too much like an exploited country when compared with the ! rugged, natural beauty of your Far West.” It costs no more to enter the Park via the Coly Road than via any other gateway; but, it is certainly worth more, because of the delightful motor ride and wonderfully beautiful scenery. By all means, give your Yellowstone passengers an opportunity to secure this additional pleasure by routing them, at least one way, via the Cody Road. Both one way and round trip Pacific coast tickets via the Billings gateway tan be split, enabling your passengers to enter the Park via Cody, and leave it via Gardiner and continue on to the coast—without additional rail charge. The reverse of this is also true —Eastbound passengers may enter the Park via Gardiner, come out via the Cody Road and continue on their way. Full details regarding all tours will be contained in our Cody Road to Yellowstone Park folder, copy of which will reach you in a few days. BURLINGTON TRAINS RUN DIRECT TO CODY. THERE’S A GOOD MARKET FOR EGGS AT $4 A DOZEN IF YOU ARE PRODUCING THE RIGHT KIND Have you any pheasant eggs for sale? They are worth 25 cents a piece and can be produced as cheap ly as chicken eggs. There is a shortage of $25,000 worth of Chinese ring neck pheasant eggs in Colorado and if any of the readers of the Her ald have any to spare there is a pro fitable market for the surplus. The Wyoming Game Protective as sociation thru the chairman of the game birds committee, Edward V. Robertson, proposes to stock the mountains with these game birds The eggs are expected to arrive Saturday and Monday, two shipments having been made. Those who have ordered them have been. notified and furnished with instructions as to the methods for propagation. The settings sell for $4 and the eggs are hatched under the common CHRIST CHURCH There will be no other services at Christ church on Sunday, May 21, ex cepting Sunday school, as Mr. Mc- Ginley will be in Basin attending the consecration of the Episcopal church there.

Cody’s familiar face adorns the title page and caries with it this legend: The Cody Road * * to * * Yellowstone * * The ONLY Motor Road ’ *— into the Park * * Burlington (of course) * Under the title: “The Cody Road to Yellowstone Park, the only auto route into the Park,” is given the following subject matter: barn yard fowl. The propagator should have a field of grain stubble for the oriental birds to run in as they live almost entirely on insects and mice. For this reason they are very valuable Co agriculturists and more than pay for themselves in the number of insects they destroy ami the larvte they consume. The fowls may be liberated in the mountains where they increase rap idly. They are natives of the high altitudes of China and were brought into Colorado by the American Game association. Colorado now has 100,- 000 pheasants. They are accustom ed to severe weather and winter well in Colorado. The introduction of these birds in that state is regarded as a great as set. The demand this year for eggs exceeded the supply by $25,000.

Refreshments which included ice cream and cake, were served.

Owens was unanimously chosen mayor of Cody at the special meeting of the council Wednesday night to serve out the unexpired time of Frank O. Thompson, resigned. M r mw E MAYOR WALTER S. OWENS The resignation of Mr. Thompson has been on the table for several months awaiting his return from De- Kalb, Illinois, where he is engaged temporarily in the automobile busi ness. Conditions were such that it was impossible for him to state defi nitely his future course and it was deemed expedient to accept his res ignation. Mr. Owens has had considerable experience as mayor of the city. This is the second administration in which he has been acting chief. In a former one during the intermittent absence of the mayor he held the of fice for ten months and during Mr. Thompson’s term he has been acting mayor since January. The vacancy in the council was not filled. It was decided to leave the place open until the name of a man was presented upon whom all mem bers of the body could agree. The present council has been a particu larly harmonious one and as a re sult a great amount of work has been accomplished. To preserve those re iations and thus enable all the energy to be spent in progress, the acton was temporarily deferred. Chprles Arnold was named street commissioner and day police. In making this appointment the coun cil took into consideration Mr. Ar nold’s ability as a foreman and work er. It will be his duty to see that the city gets its money’s worth in the labor it hires. He will take part in the activities also. His police duties will consist in maintaining or der during the day time and be sub ject to call should trouble arise. Mr. Arnold’s experience as a builder of roads in Yellowstone park recom mended him highly for the position, and the council’s policy of getting Cody’s streets in first class shape will be carried out under the direc tion of Mr. Arnold.

KENT FEME Senior Thespians Lackaye Trained Cody people are to be treated to something exceptional in the line of home talent plays on the night of the commencement exercises, June 2, at the Temple, when the royalty play “The Strenuous Life,” will be pro duced by members of the graduating class assisted by members of some of the lower classes. “The Strenuous Life.” was written by Richard Walton Tully, the author of “The Rose of the Rancho,” in collaboration with David Belasco, one of the world’s most fa mous playwrights. It is a college farce of unusual merit and cleverness and those who witness the play are assured of many a hearty laugh. Re hearsals, under the direction of Dick Lackeye, who also takes a part, are being conducted daily, and the stu dents are developing unexpected his trionic ability. The excuse for the play are the doings of Tom Harrington, a popu lar student at California university, who although possessed of much ability and a winning personality, al lows himself to lie caught in some awkward situations. To extricate himself and avoid expulsion from college, he tells a few lies, and then some more. Fellow students and members of the faculty are involved, and the complications that arise pro duce many excruciating funny situ ations and climaxes. It ail ends right, of course, wiiti a scene that is the funniest of all. To defray the expense of producing this play, which is considerable, a small charge will be made for admis sion.

The same day Miss Lantry had gone to Basin where a wedding had been prepared at the home of her inti mate friends Mr. and Mrs. A. J. Sul livan. The ceremony was solemnized last night, Rev. Stephen McGinley of the Cody Episcopal church officiating. The arrival of the couple were anxiously awaited last night at the time the Herald went to press. Congratulations of the entire com munity are extended to this excellent couple. 4 BACHELOR SURPRISED Henry Goudreau, the popular sales man of Dave Jones, was surprised by a party arranged by his mother and sister in honor of his birthday anni versary Wednesday evening. The table was well appointed and decor ated with cut flowers. An illumi nated cake and numerous gifts were at Henry’s plate. As he was usher ed to his seat in the dining room he discovered' a beautiful lady seated next to his plate. Hope mounted high but on close examination he' found her but a dummy intended to hint that the guest of honor had reached a prudent age when it would be safe for him to make a selection. Be sides his mother, Mrs. Mary L. Goud reau, covers were laid for Mr. and Mrs. Charles Lutkin and Mr. and Mrs. James Ratliff.
