t The state of Oregon Jias this week
been-cast into gloom by the awful
disaster of the .town of Heppner and
the valley, of Willow Creek in easten
Oregon. In a part ofthe state where
it rains but little the heavens have
opened and a veritable delugo of water
has been cast upon the mountains and

came down upon th city of Heppner
and tho fertile valley in which the
city lay and in a fewminutesjwrought
untold distruction, destroying build
ings, wiping out human lives and
leaving in its wake a train of human
death and disaster whioh appalls the
luman mind and staggers belief.

women an children, property to the
amount of $1,000,000 was swept
away and hundreds of people are home

generously responded to their cry of
need and train loads of provision and
clothing and tents and holpful nec
essaries have rushed to thorn,.' The
open handed charity of the people of
the Northwest has been shown at
its best. - No such calamity has. ever
visited this coast or the Inland Empire
of Oregon and let us hope that many
years may come and go before another
calamity of such appalling proportions
shall be visited upon our people.
