Gazette: A faint wish has en tered my cranium to scratch a few wordB to the most enterprising and interesting paper, the Heppner Gazette. As this is my first attempt at writing for a paper I have but little hopes of seeing it in print, but nevertheless I will be pleased if it does happen to find a littie-spaceiu some unoooupied column. We have been having very severe weather in this section for some time past, all tha high hills and mpi'tutains are covered with nature's snowy garb. Al though it has not snowed for several days it has been cloudy and threatening de struction to the wee lambs, which are constantly arriving this time of the year, and oonBequently the sheepmen do not have sue li a pleasant smile as would be expected under different oircumstances. As I bad the pleasure of riding over the Eight Mile oountry a few days since, I feol it my duty to describe some of its beauties, whioh are plowed fields, bar rowed as smooth as a new swept lloor. beautiful green lanes and pastures, and sturdy farmers turning over ths green sod for next fall's use; little lambs scampering and playing, and young orchards' sprouting leaves waving in the April breezes, tell of industry, prosper ity and happiness. But I must leave Eight Mile and re turn to our own little village, which is in a bad condition, and needs a justice of the peace or somebody with great power to keep peace amorg the gentle sex, so their aching jaws may have a little rest. If there is an neuiployed peaoe-mnker about Heppner, we wonld be willing to give good wages for a short time, just to get a rest, you know, A Bthaqulino. Lone Hock, April 8, 1802.

Upon repre sentations ol fair, impartial treatment of all olasses, I was induced to subscribe for tbe Gazette. Within the last ten days, sir, you have broken faith with me, or your agent is full of guile. You recently published in your local oolumns an item wbioh does serious in justice to one of our most respected fel low-townsmen, viz: That he had recently become the father of an l.S-pound boy The party in question is not a married man at all, and it looks as though you were endeavoring to practice an old nolitioal dodge. Don't think, because we are few in number, that we will suf fer injustice at your hands, sir. You have already seen the error of your way and made partial restitution by saying it was a man of the same name and looked like him. Whom do you mean tbe baby or the man?
