JIM HILL Ml'KTARD. I
A little Investigation will disclose
the fact that the White, or "Jim Hill"
mustard, Is getting quite a hold In this
county. This crop destroyer received
Its name Jim Hill from the fact that
the Dakotas were never afflicted with
this weed until the railroad brought
It Into that section, and It grew so pro
lific that It ruined many farms. The
same thing Is true in this county. It
never was here prior to the building
of the Elgin branch. Last senson one
farmer on the Sandrldge lost a S20
cr field of grain. The mustard was
o rank it practically took the field.
Today Turner Oliver brought a plant
to The Observer office and we count
ed the pods and seeds, and soon as
certained that on this one bush, there
were no I lens than 1K9.000 sepds. As
the bush, when matured. Is brittle and
easily broken off near the ground, the
first breee rolls the bush from one
field to another. It is readily noticed
how the seed spreads from one sec
tion of the valley to another.
The county court a few weeks ago
Issued orders to the several road su
pervisors of the county to clean up
their highways and to notify the prop
erly owners to do likewise.
Those who have watched the devel
opment and spread of this While mus
tard, reiillre tho Importance of com
plying with the law. It Is not hurd to
kill It. but, allowed to spread lit will,
It takes everything before It
The law Is very strict regarding lis
destruction, but like all other l;ivs!
tlint ar In the 'Wild letter" rhiss Hi
tnay' require several arrests before all
wake up to the necessity of doing their
Individual duty. The law provides ai
fine of 1100 for each violation, and in
rase of failure the road supervisors !
lire empowered to put a force or men
Into the fields anil rut It out und!
charge up the expellee ngnlnxt tlin !

being knocked out of court about as
fast as the Judge and jury can get
to them. These prosecutions have had
their effect. U has cleared things up

change and It requires just such
changesg to round out a complete life.
ItlSINKKS IS HKTTF.R.
At this, the beginning of the second
month of , prohibition in Umatilla
county, the East Oregonlan is proud
to say that Its business and the busi
ness of Pendleton in general is excel
lent, better, perhaps, than in former
months of July when, every merchant
expects a slight slump In business.'
The advertising patronage of the
East Oregonlan was never better In
the summer months; Its subscription
list is bigger and more permanent to
day than ever n Its history and it Is
doing more Job work and is enjoying
a wider field and has more influence
and publishes more news todny than
eyer before. i
It waa not afraid of prohibition be
fore election and Its courage has been
vindicated since election. Pendleton
Is on the way to a better business era
than has ever yet blessed her, not
withstanding the excellent record of
the past, and the East Oregonlan ex
pects to share that better era to the
This paper is sincerely gratified at
the results and whllo It regrets that
anybody 'should have suffered by the
radical change, yet It believes that
every man who stays In Umatilla coun
ty will recover his loss ten-fold. Pen

Friends of Colonel Ivunlioe Give HJm
u I'leiiMaiit Surprise.
The 62dl birthday anniversary of
District Attorney F. S. Ivanhoe gave
i'.rs: Ivanhoe an opportunity to com
pletely surprise him by inviting a
number of friends In to spend the
evening. Along during the afternoon
the telephone was kept busy and a lit
tle past 7:30 the parlors of the Ivanhoe
home were filled by friends. Mr.' Ivan
hoe, after dinner returned' to his of
fice, that Is. this Is the story he told
Mrs. Ivanhoe, and when she called
him to inform him that he had com
pany, he did not res-pond and Mrs.
Ivanhoe and Mrs. J. M. Berry, who as
sisted Mrs. Ivanhoe, went out on a
searching party and for a little while
It began to loolt as though the sur
prise might be reversed. But it was
not, and upon entering .Mr. Ivanhoe
wanted to know immediately what ho
was being led up' against.
After carefully shaking hands with
those present he became sufficiently
calm to raiiias r !.''rM',,
peared on' the. surface and Mrs,
Ivanhoe explained to him that all of
the present trouble was brought about
by the fact that 52 years ago he was
Pleasant conversation and greetings
were exchanged for several moments,
when games of various sorts were
played, and the guests were favored
with a number of selections on : the
Later In the evening refreshments
were sarved, followed by a smoker.
Judge Knowlea' then presented Col.
Ivanhoe as an expression of the high
esteem In which he was held by his
friends a gold mounted fountain pen,
upon which waa engraved an Elks'
emblem. The colonel responded In his
happy felicitous manner and he was
followed by a number of the gentle
men present, who not only compli
mented the colonel, all of whom had
known him no less than 10 years and
many 20 'years, for his sterling quali
ties and success, and in. as much as
all present had received such short
notice, these expressions were simply
expressions of the heart, not sot stud
led phrases which In similar circum
stances are often the case. Each one
realized this and the sentiments thus
expressed added greatly to the pleas
ure nf the evening. '
