Kasparilla is the name of a new remedy I
most successfully prescribed for a "world I
oi irouoiea. for derangements of the
digestive organs it is a natural corrective,
operating directly upon the liver and ali
mentary canal, gently but persistently
stimulating a healthy activity. Its bene
ficial influence extends, however, to every
portion of the system, aiding in the
processes of digestion and assimilation of
food, promoting a wholesome, natural
appetite, correcting sour stomach, bad
breath, irregularities of the bowels, con
stipation and the long list of troubles
directly traceable to those unwholesome
conditions. Kasparilla dispels drowsi
ness, headache, backache and despond
ency due to inactivity of the liver,
kidneys and digestive tract. It is a
strengthening tonic of the highest value.

Enterprise won the drill contest at
the Knights of Pythias district con
vention held in. this city Friday. It
was a splendid exhibition by both
the Enterprise and Wallowa teams
and the decision of the judges
showed they were very evenly
matched as there was only a point's
difference. The judges were George
Llndgrecn and E. E. Bragg of La
Grande and Frank S. Smith of Elgin.
The winning team will represent this
county at the state convention of the
nrder to be held at Pendleton In
June.
There was a large attendance, close
to 100, in Fraternal hall and the en
tertainment was line. The exempli
fication of the work of the third rank
iy the drill teams of the two lodges
was of course the principal feature,
but in addition the evening was
marked by a good social time, and
was rounded out by a delicious Bp
per served by the ladles of Juanlta

ROYAL ARCH MASONS
"HELP" AN OLD
FRIEND
Seven members of Enterprise chap
ter. No. 30. Roval Arch masons, had
the time of their lives in La Grande,
Tuesday night, when on special In
vitation they saw tne Jtoyai Arcn
degree conferred on three candidates
one of whom was John S. Hodgln,
formerly of this city. The Wallowa
county visitor were Judge J B.
Olmsted, C. E. Funk. D. W. Sheahan,
w. R. Holmes, Ben Boswell nd Geo.
S. Craig of this city, and Waldo
Chase of Imnaha. One and all de
clare they were royally treated and
made to feel at home and then some.
The La Grande Observer tells of
the
Great Time in th. Temple..
There were great things doing at
Masonic temple last night when the
Royal Arch degree was conferred.
Somehow, possibly by wireless tel-
egrapn, it became rumored that a
once prominent citizen of Wallowa
county was to be one of the "vic
tims," and when the Wallowa coun
ty train pulled in there were eight
or ten innocent looking individuals
alighted and proceeded to let it be
known that they had come primar
Ily for the purpose of seeing this
degree conferred upon their erst
while friend and they did not want
to be disappointed in not seeing the
candidate duly and truly prepared In
due and ancient form. In the Wal
towa constituency there was one
or two old line campaigners and they
soon engineered it so their friend
was io receive the brunt of the
special features, and. suffice to say,
the visiting brethren were more than
we!l pleased with the evening's en
teriainment, wnich closed with a
banquet. This was the first offic
ial occasion that gave the officers
of Hope Chapter No. 9 an opportun
Ity to wear their elerant new uni
form, which Is acknowledged to be
the finest In the state. It required
very little fancy to make one be
Ueve that he had been viewing
King Solomon's temple with all the
high court officials out to greet
him. It was after midnight when
the friends left the banquet table.'
