Jt is one vast hay field from Lostine north. The grain ciops bolh above and below Lostine are Also good, probably better than in the'un- per valley.

J. FUNK & CO. ri. A treat to the people of Enterprise and vicinity is promised Saturday night, at the Enterprise opera house, when the Streeter-Bryan Company pre sents Hall Caine's great dramatized story, "The Christian." All who have read this absorbing story will tind the characters in reul lifo doubly Interesting, tlioso who have not are anticipating a decided pleasure. This company played a twenty weeks' stand at the West End Theatre, New York, afterward follow ing Viola Allen with unbounded suc cess in a tour of the principal cities of the United States. Nothing of the kind lias ever been given in Enter prise lefore. The company have their own scenery especially fcr use in this play. Among Miss Brjan's beautiful costumes are two Worth gowns. In cluded in the many press notices of the Streeter-Bryan scrap-book are flattering write-ups from their production of the Christian. Olivette. Olivette, the opera eelocted by Prof. Boyer for presentation at Enterprise this year, is one of the greatest musi cal and comedy successes ever known, either in this country or in Europe. It will be more appreciated and will be a greater success than was "The Pirates of Penzance" last year, for the reason that whereas the "Pirates" was a sat ire on conditions existing in Etifcluid twenty-five years ago, its hun ov, there fore, appearing somewhat obscure to many, "Olivette" is a straight comedy. The cast this season promises to Le much stronger than was that of last season, Prof. Boyer, himself, singing the leading tenor role, Mr. Pratt the leading baritone role, while Mr. Street er will furnish the comedy stunts among the men. The company is fortunate enough to have secured as leading so prano, Miss Edna Browning, who is fresh from her recent triumphs at the Gladstone Park Chatauqua, near Port land. It is doubly fortunate in havkg secured for the soubrette part of "Olivette," Miss Blanche Bryan, whose acting with the Streeter-Bryan Com pany has been so much enjoyed. Altogether the prospects are for a rendition of the opera which will bu u mi morable one. Rehearsels are go'ng on steadily with a large attendance, and it is thought that everything will be ready for the production of the opera on Friday and Saturday, August 7th and 8th. Bliss Brownies ig Chautauqua Star. Eroni Portland Evening Telegram, Oregon City, July 13. The Chautauqua program on Saturday evening w as under the direction of Dr. It. A. Heritage, mil- ioal director of the assembly. It con sisted of special solos and selections by the Willamette Girls, a quartet from Salem; the Beethovt'n Trio and the Chautauqua, Chorus. Every number was encored. The Willamette Girls Quartet is one of the most satisfactory musical attractions on the platform this year. It is composed cf Edna Earl Browning, Ruth Field, Bessie Cor nelius and Elinor Colony. Among the soloists there is no one that gives more pleasure than Miss Etna E. Browniiij, who was the star of Saturday evening's entertainment. . Alder Slope Farmer Who Raises Evervlhinir. Diversified farming, with an Alder Slope farm as a basis, is well illustrated by S. T. Daggett on his ranch at the base of the mountains, five miles south west of Enterprise. Whether it be grain ( r vegetables, hay or fruit, milk or honey, poik cr poultry, scenery or climate, that ranch can supply your need or fancy, and that too, with only a small corner of the 1W acres under cultivation. Mr. Daggett camu from Iowa and bought the piace a year ago last spring. Today he has the nucleus of a splendid farm, with everything that should be on a farm. To begin w ith he has timber in abundance and a fine spring. The fields of timothy, clover and grain are a sight to behold. The thrifty young orchard of apple, pearaud plum trees is burdened with tlio prom iso of a splendid harvest. How after row of raspberries and oth r small fruit surround the fine garden, in w hich every vegetable known grows to perfection, including sweet corn, celery, vegetable oysters, cauliflower, beans and tbe famed Daggett peas, that he has cultivated in Illinois, Iowa and Oregon for 34 years. Fine milk cows mid Du roc Jersey plf add to the farm income, and last but by no means least are the bees. Mr. Daggett, although a new comer, is known all over the valley be cause of his bees. Aud they are doing splendidly. Swarm after swarm have been hived tills summer until the line of stands extend clear along the or cluud fence. The bees find plenty of honey and he anticipates a large sur plus this full. Already orders are booked for mauv swarms but be will have none to sell until next year. A visit to the Daggett farm would be a revelation to a one-crop farmer. J. C. Shackelford lett Thursday morn ing for Museo, Idaho, with a car load of horses. Brave Woman In Runaway Accident V T. O. Barnwell, wife and three chil dren and Bert Whittoniore, all of ha Grande, were the participants in an ex citing runaway here Monday evening. They had gotten the team at Elgin and were driving in for a visit with Mrs. Barnwell's brother, Lon Davis. The team became frightened and started to run on Trout Creek hill, going south through town on Riyer street. After the two men and one of the children hud been thrown out Mrs. Barnwell to save the little children who were with her from a worse fate, threw them out and then jumped herself. The band boys were practicing at the rink and they were taken in there. Dr. C. T. Ilockett was summoned and dressed their wounds. Their injuries are not severe, though Mrs. Barnwell has a deep cut on her head and was badly bruised, evidently having been dragged some little distance, her clothing being torn to shreds. One of the boys especially was cut about the face. The team was captured near the Murry place on Al der Slope and brought to tbe Shackle Tord stable Tuesday afternoon. Mr. Barnwell desires to thank the people of the city for the kindness shown them. TRACK TO WALLOWA WITHIN SIX WEEKS Cheering Words by Engineer Brandon Will Reach Minan River la Ten Days.

A charivari party followed tlio ceremony. :in Mir. ule Washer at Ashley's, j "The track will be laid as far as the bridge in ten days." said Enuinetr 'Brandon at Enterprise, Monday, "and will be at the town of Wallowa within six weeks." Mr. Brandon who has charge of the construction of tlio Elgin-Joseph branch, was in the city the first of the week looking after tlio progress of the grading and other matters pertaining to the road, lie said the work by Con tractor Battel son is proceeding rapidly and satisfactorily. Mr. Brandon reported the track laid as far as Howard creek, three miles from the mouth of the Wallowa. The Howard creek bridge was finished Mou day night, and tracklaying resumed Tuesday morning. Only a small bridge at the hatchery interferes with a cleur w ay for the tracklayers as far as the Minani, which will be reached by August 30. Temporory piling across the Wallowa at the bridge will delay on a few days and then tracklaying will continue up tbo canyon. An average of 3000 feet of track per day is now being laid, but as soon as they are out of the canyon and the tracklaying machine can bo used, a mile a day will be 1 nt down. At pres eut there are 'S0 men at work in tlio canyon and about 50 on the grades in the valley. There will lie no delays in the work says Mr. Braudon. All material is not only assembled in 1 ho big yards estab lished on tlio Anthony fur in at the n.outh o' the Wallowa, but the material is shaped ready for use. The railj are bent to fit tlio curves aud a yard gang of 40 men load ami unload the cars and fit the material for use. It is one of the most complete railroad construction yards and camps over established in the West and is an indication of the thoroughness with which Mr. Brandon lias prepared for this work. Three en gines are in use at the yards and on the completed track. Water is eveu piped into the workmen's cars, giving thorn the convenience of shower baths. Mr. Brandon is living on the firing line, so to speak, having his private car at the front. When the track is laid as fur as Wallowa, about September 1, new yuids will bo established there as the base of operations for the valley, up which construction work will proceed with all speed as it is. the purpose of the company that regular service shall bo instituted tl.is fall. Tlio yards at Wallowa will not of course lie of the same magnitude us the one inw at Anthony, us the work in tiie valley is so much less tluiii that up tho canyon. The concrete pier- of the big bridge across Hie Graiidu Itondeam now being put in. Dan Clark Released 011 Bond. Dun Clark, sou of ().
