Splendid Hay Crops. :

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
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
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.

Brave Woman In
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

week looking after tlio progress of the
grading and other matters pertaining
to the road, lie said the work by Con

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

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

Mr. Brandon is living on the firing

car at the front.
