SNAKE RIVER STOCKMEN FIND
IT MAKES EASY SAILING
Pittsburg, Nov. 24. The Pittsburg:
Livestock association held its annual
meeting . on November 20, and it was
a very pleasant affair, no less than
15 stockmen attended, talked over
the last year and planned for the
coming year. All agreed that the
Stock association is a success and
if everything continues as smoothly
in the future as in the past, it
will be nice, easy sailing for every
one concerned. The Forest Reserve
has proven a blessing in these parts
It is hard for a few of us to see i
that way, but doubtless In time w
will be telling our neighbors that we
knew it was a good thing all the
time but didn't want to let on.
Secretary E. A. Mace kindly fur
nished the following minutes of the
association meeting. Reports of sec
retary, treasurer and manager read
and approved. Officers elected:
Pres., Ben Johnson; vice, F. P. Som
ers; Secy, and Treas., W. S. Brock
man; manager, Ralph Russell; di
rectors, M. H. Thomason, Charles
Crader, E. A, Mace. It was decided
to herd the spring and fall range
for protection during the summer
season instead of fencing. It was
agreed to recommend and ask that
a pass-way be opened by the for
est supervisor from Hominy creek,
south to the Tepee trail, for better
ing the way of handling cattle mov
ing to and from the summer range.
We have been having very nice
weather this fall, nice, bright, sun
shiny days for the past two weeks,
but last Sunday brought us the much
needed rain and grass is fine.
Stockmen are busy getting their
cattle Into pastures for winter. There
seems to be all kinds of good beef
among them and if a beef buyer
should happen along he could find
plenty of beef that would be a cred
it to any country.

The people of Troy and this vi

to be a reality that the railroad is
to be extended on down the Grande
Ronde river from River Junction to
Lewlston. It would open up one of
the best producing sections to be
found any where. Troy has one of
the best water powers in the state.
It would also -make one of the best
shipping points along the entire line.

SPECIALTIES WILL MAKE
BIG HIT WITH AUDIENCE
"The Japanese Girl, to be pre
sented at the Enterprise opera house
this, Saturday evening by the ladles
of the Enterprise Library association,
Is going to be one of the very best
performances ever seen in Enter
prise. The ladles have rehearsed faith
fully, will be costumed beautifully,
and the piece will be staged in a
manner In keeping with Its other
features.- The opera contains much
beautiful music and it will be beau
tifully sung. The comedy feature
will be taken care of by Mrs. Gully,
which, to those who know her ability
along those lines, is sufficient guar
antee that it will be done well.
Miss Craig is ' in most excellent
voice, as are all the others of the
principals. The occasion will serve
to introduce to an Enterprise audi
ence some new stars, the Misses
Hauck, who bid fair to become as
popular as any of our other favorites.
In addition to the opera the follow
ing will be Introduced as specialties:
Bauer &. Bauer, song and dance,
Miss Nanne Heaton, in Indian club
Miss Edna Browning, waits song,
Miss Allegra Ragsdale, reading In
pantomime, "I'm Bad."
Little Miss Ragsdale's act Is one
I of the very best ever seen on any
j stage and will undoubtedly make a
big hit with the audience.
When it is considered that in point
of quality, nothing ever seen in Enter
prise surpasses "A Japanese Girl,"
and that as a further incentive the
opera is for the benefit of the public
library, surely there will be a record
breaking crowd in attendance.
