PENDLETON SURPRISES THEM.
Homeseekers Never Heard of This
Town and Wonder at Its Size and
The coaches of tho westbound pas
senger train which came through
several hours late again today, were
all crowded with homeseekers. Men.
women nnd children rushed for the
doors of tho cars, got out onto the
platform nnd hegnn to ask questions
about Pendleton nnd the surrounding
country. All seemed to be more or
less interested in this section, but
they had heard very little about it.
Many asked how large a town Pendle
ton was, and when told it was a city
of C000 people, they were surprised.
They said Pendleton had scarcely
been heard of In the Middle States,
and they hnd formed the opinion
that It was some Bmall hamlet
stuck off In the hills as Its notoriety
novor reached the outside world.
Ono man In particular, D. B. Mc
Gee. was very much interested in
Pendleton. He asked many ques
tlons about the town nnd Umatilla
county. He is looking for farming
land, and made Inquiry nbout
prices. When told thnt ho could buy
land that would grow 40 bushels of
wheat to the acre for $30 and $35, he
was surprised. He is from Oklaho- Jones, entered Mr. Chandler's meat
ma and said he just sold a large tract market and wanted to buy enough
of land there for $52.50 an acre. On cattle to make up a carload for shlp

Mr. McOee said thnt he had his
ticket for Seattle, but when he got
to Seattle and looked over that coun
try he would return to Pendleton
and perhaps settle in this vicinity.
He was accompanied by his family,
and came West partly for his wife's
health. Ho said that wherever he
settled many other Oklahoma people
would seek homes.

While I pondered, weak nnd weary,
Over that outrageous doggerel,
Doggerel I now deplore
Methought I heard a gentle bustling.

And a voice in anger calling .
Calling loudly, '"Nevermore!"
"It Is Satan's voice," I muttered,
(And my heart -within me fluttered)
"Satan calls to me, a sinner
