Reaffirming Mr. Hill's state ment about the present stringency in financial circles he begged everyone to be patient a little while longer and expressed the hope that when the road did come in he would represent it. In elusion Mr. Young advised that with all due regard to J. J. Hill the elub shouldn't overlook Louis W. Hill and let him getaway from them. At this point, before the ap plause had died out Mr. Hill evoked great enthusiasm by sug gesting that if the club really i wanted hff father to visit them they should send Col. Bill Han- ; ley after him. "Our Bill" Hanley as the last speaker showered praise without 'stint on the Commercial Club and New Books Added to Library. pery year THE BURNS HOTEL DELL DIBBlL, Prop.

Mr. II ill in a jocular fashion Illustrated how the Hill line might be in the valley ahead of the Harriinan line by referring to his trip over from Bend. Ho commended Mr. Davidson as a driver said he had a good car and kept in the lead all the way but at the finish the Packard road ster was in front. "We might Start behind and keep urging tht other fellow on, but we finish behind," he said, I ef er ring to his own extensive invest ments hre Hi Hill stated that what the country needed w,ih two railroads null thai he wished faf the same u h'wrlilj snyone present..

He urged upon jail that for a community or or ganization to be successful each man as a unit must do his best for the good of the whole. And as the standard of the people re flects the standard of the com munity so must each man be judged by his works. Bill entreated every person to become a booster for the state as well ns mr his own community. "If you must knock" he says, "tackle the cyclone and flood devastations they have back East. A burst of laughter greeted his challenge to some of the "Brand new" democrats to display their loyalty to the country by going back to Washington and demand the "twelve millions" which are Oregon's due. He maintained that the people are really the judges of the fit ness of any law of regulation and finished by making a fervant ap lieal for a statewide agitation that would force the powers at Washington to grant Oregon the full recognition she needs in ex ploiting her vast resources. After the reception at the Masonic hall the distinguished guests went out to the Hanley ranch and left for Ontario early the following morning. It was not learned where they would go from that point, but it is under stood they were due in Caldwell where they will be guests of -the Commercial Club. It is further stated that the Hills are back of a line of railroad from up in Mon tana through Boise and Caldwell to the south through the southern part of this county to a connect ion with the Gould lin.'.i in Neva da and thus into San Francisco. The excellent i ublic library of this city that has had the untir ing support of the ladies has be come one of the most attractive places in Burns and one that is a community.

There is a saying that "Rapid eating is slow suicide." If you have formed the habit of eating too rapidly you are most likely suffering from indigestion or constipation, which will result eventually in serious illness unless corrected. Digestion begins in the mouth. Food should be thoroughly mosticated and in salivated. Then when you have a fullness of the stomach or feel dull and stupid after eating, take one of Chamberlain's Tablets. ' Many severe cases of stomach ! trouble and constipation have i been cured by the use of these bw.i o . 'tablets.
