LONGER MYSTERY WALLA WALLA UNION SAYS IT IS SURELY NORTH WESTERN'S COAST LINE. Walla Walla Vnion, Oct. 27: Ru mor again has it that the Pittsburg Gilmore railroad which Is building through Idaho and the Salmon riv er country is noie other than the Chicago Northwestern, which Is the same as the North Coast road, which Is going to put this city on a trans continental line. There are dozens of groups of surveyors now working in the Salmon river country, making lo cations for the new road. The situatloa at present presents an alarming front for Jlra H1U, for believing that he was secure In Ida ho, the recent actions of the rival read have startled him Into activity anj his surveyors are already at wnh completing a final survey Into Hlk City, Idaho, This means Both in more than that the Chicago Not thwestern is coming In that di re:t!oii attacking the Hill interests from the rear, thereby forcing the Northern Pacific to "move some" if it desires to be in at the tapping of this rich bection, The Piu&burg- Gllmore, which con nects with the C.

It is assured that surveyors of the North Coast are at work running a line through the Blue Mountains and It can hard ly be any other connection than that with the Plttsburg-GUmore or Chi cago Northwestern that they are try ing to make.

The Famous Buster Browns and Nap-a-Tans ,TH F.V AKE A HfT t IS) A pL ?L Blue Ribbok The King's Business What Is God's business should be pre-eminently our business. Nothing should stand in the way of making It so. No Christian can have a legit imate interest that is divorced from "the King's business." God's para mount Interest is thesavlng of lost men; to this object every interest In heaven bends, so far aa this world is concerned. To this same object every interest of a heavenly people must concentrate. Business duties, professional duties, home du ties, school duties, must on the part of Christian people, yield for the time being, to the more immediate business of the King. The evange lltsic meeting now in progress is the King's business. Christ died to save the people of Enterprise. Some 20 or more have already accepted Christ as their savior. That repre sents more in eternal values than all the material Interests! of the town. It is Incumbent upon us to make far greater sacrifices for the Balvation of our people than we have yet made. Let us do it! No legitimate interest will suffer in consequence of such sacrifice. We have an able sader in Dr. Pratt, a p werful ex pounder of God's word, and a spirit filled man. Our opportunity is rare one. The afternoon Bible studies are such as you can not obtain elsewhere except in some of our Bible Instl tutes In Chicago, Los Angeles and a few of the largest cities of our land Every evening service has been in Itself a rare privilege. Every ser vice you miss is a Ions If you miss it. It is a loss which you can not replace God la with us and the presence of the Spirit has been very manifest. The singing by the choir has been a great help to the services. More whole-souled, enthus lastlc singing is rarely found. Many a thrilling story can be related of conversions through the singing of gottpel hymns. It may be ao here, Let us remember that the revival applies primarily to the church mem- ber and just in proportion as the Burlington, Vt., Oct. 26. General Oliver O. Howard, last of the Union commanders of the Civil war, died at his home here tonight of heart disease. He was 79 years old. Monday he returned to his home here from a lecture tour In Ontario, and apparently was In his usual good health. Tonight he was attack ed by heart trouble-and was dead when a physician reached the house. Including General Howard's ser vices in the Indian wars be proba bly was In more engagements than any other officer in the United States army. He was bo:n In Leeds, Maine, November 8, 1830. (Continued on page 6) Aside from his splendid Civil War record. General Howard was of es pecial Interest to tbe people of this county because he commanded the column that made the memorable pursuit of Chief Joseph In the Net Perce war. Joseph and the Indians are gener ally given more credit In that won derful chase than Howard and the soldiers, but it Is usually forgotten that It was an Infantry column that pursued the Indians, who bad an abundance of horses, though handi capped by the women and children of the tribe. And there Is a club of boys In Enterprise who will note the death of the famous general with more than passing Interest the General How- l Fort of the Sons of Daniel Boone, a boys society of the Presby terian church. When he learned the ocal fort was named for him last winter, he sent the boys a nice let ter that was printed in these col umns at the time. Carpets, Rugs and Art Oquares.
