' THE HEPPNER WAREHOUSE
Has been enlarged to accommodate
the increasing business. The wools
i of this section which accumulate at
Heppner, attract all the leading
Western buyers to that point, and
' make it the best market in which
the grower can dispose of his clip.
Last season over 1,000,000
pounds of wool was sold in Hep
pner at prices which averaged the
grower more clear money than was
: realized by sales of similar wools
in other western markets more dis
tant from the manufacturing cen
ters oi the East.
Teamsters charges advanced on
written orders. Cash advanced on
wool in storage.

we have in thi country, and I can
