Six Month Three Month. tiOO .1.00 . .75 The Times-Herald is pleased to note a goodly number of excellent men coming out for the various offices to be filled at the coming elections. With such material in the field the voters may make selections of the most capable men and thus insure the county good service. In selecting officers for county work the man and his qualifications are the first to be considered. Last season articles appeared in the local papers respecting the adjudication of water rights along Silvies River and advising action by local water users. No particular attention was given the suggestion at the time in this vicinity but an application from citizens of the Lawen section was acted upon. This, however, was not as comprehensive as was desired by the board and it was hoped a petition signed by a greater number of water users would be forwarded. It seems now that people are aroused to the necessity of the work and we are pleased to note the state board has already taken steps i near it toward the end desired without -phe Literary further requests. our way lately Saturday Feb ruary 3, a drive was made near the Stevens places. People gathered from all directions Princeton, Waverly, Virginia val by and even Harriman and Hap py Valley were represented until over 150 were there. Two drives were made with dinner and a social hour between which all en joyed very much. The old set tlers met and greeted each other and made the new comers wel come and helped them get ac quainted with their neighbors. About 700 rabbits were killed. A second drive a week later far ther down the valley near Mr. Cullen and Mr. Dildine's places was not so successful in either people or rabbits as the bad weather and roads kept away 1 many of the farmer most of the latter have gone to the hills. The sociability and good eating however were just as enjoyable as before. Items in the papers and recent letters from friends telling that the snow is not all gone at Burns and other places seems strange to us as the snow has been all gone from Virginia Valley for nearly a month and last week it was getting so dry the farmers were talking of plowing soon but recent rains and light snows have postponed that for awhile. How ever the songs of the larks and the less musical but equally wel come cackle of the hen convinces us that spring is here or very BETTER CUSS OF WOOL. Society is still thriving and while settling all the great questions of the day is also developing some fine debat ers and good speakers.

Grower's Association will no doubt benefit by this state of af fairs as the members will have the advantage of organization and this, too, will attract a class of wool buyers that have hereto fore not been in this market. If the association make it an object the auto freight truck people have promised to go out into the valley and pick up the wool for delivery to the ware houses and railroads. Considerable intei est is being shown in the meeting of the as Bociation on March 4 in this city and more sheepmen have signi fied their intention of joining the association at that time. Mr. and Mrs. Gray Kinney and baby daughter visited relatives and friends in the valley over Sunday and attended the Liter ary Society meeting and Sunday school and preaching last week. Harley Quier, Perry Retherford and Alma Quier have just finish ed clearing twenty-five acres of sage brush for Mr. Hubert Keck. Frank Steel has contracted to clear a tract for the Harstritch sisters. Homer Bennett made a short visit to home folks last week and helped round up a few rabbits. Walter Quier made a flying visit home from the sheep camp last week. cases of grip and tonsilitis have been about all. Joe Retherford has been help ing Jim Cameron dig Mrs. Ben Cameron's well deeper and put in the pump. We can hear the blasting in the tunnel of the Malheur canyon very often and it sure sounds good to us. WASIIIM110N SLRVICr AND SERMON.

Several ARCHIE McGOWAN "THE LAND MAN" Always Ready For Business Can Sell Your Land Can Handle Relinquishments On Good Claims It might pay you to see him if you have anything to sell The competitive rabbit hunt by the Rod and Gun Club last Thurs day resulted in a victory for Dr. Hibbard 's side and the fortunate ones will now feed at the expense of James Smith and his crowd. It was not such a "killing" as had been planned as the day proved very disagreeable and only a comparative few of the club participated. Several went to the swamps to shoot birds which also reduced the ranks so far as points in the competition was concerned as the birds did not count. The greatest individual score was made by Frank Triska, one of Mr. Smith's men, who brought in 99 rabbits tails. He had got ten 100 but lost one of the mark ers. A meeting of the Club will be held at The Times-Herald office tonight to arrange for the date of the "rabbit banquet" which Mr. Smith and his vanquished warriors will have to provide for Dr. Hibbard and his bunch. This promises to be a very en joyable affair where bear, fish (and perhaps snake) stones will be the order. No doubt at this banbuet arrangements will be made for another hunt at some future date and also a plan for a competitive trophy based on points to be determined after discussion. L0CL ND PERSON a.
