Spring Excitement.
The first free open-air entertain
ment of the season was furnished
a large number of Heppner citi
zens yesterday morning. One of
Morrow county's prominent farmer
citizens drove to town in his two
horse-mobile and hitched the team
to an electric light pole in front of
Thomson Bros, store. From some
cause, unknown to deponent,' it

C. K. Pointer, of Lexington, de
parted for the Willamette valley,
Tuesday morning, to purchase an
other carload of Jersey milk cows

pike for home. It passed the Ga

full head of steam, and about a
hundred yards behind came Char

And speeding like a full blooded
race horse. The team kept the
road until it passed the flouring
mill, so did Charlie, but just before
lie overtook it, Fred Crump stepped
in front and stopped, thus spoiling
Charlie's grand achievement, but

E. E. Chamberlain, of Clinton, Me
boldly accused Bucklen's Arnica Salve
of stealing the sting from burns or

the distress from bnilg or piles. "It
robs cats, corns, bruises, sprains sod
injuries of their terror," he says, "as a
healing remedy its equal don't exist."
Only 25c at all druggists

wisdom of this move will be seen
before many months roll around.
Splendid Address.
Dr. W. E. Vaughan came in on
the delayed train Tuesday night,
reaching the church a few minutes
after 8 o'clock, and found a very
good crowd awaiting his arrival.
Some bad cone away because' of
the late hoar. He delivered
splendid address, taking as bis

who asked the privilege of setting
the one on the right and the other
on the left in the Lord's Kingdom.
He emphasized the importance of
looking after the boys and showed
up the tendency of this age.

Pleasant Party.
A very pleasant time was had at
the residence of Mr. and Mrs. S,

people. Miss Grace invited in

Back Again.
W. T. McNabb and family, who
have been residing ip Idaho, near
the city of Nez Perce, have re
turned, with their stock and farm
ing implements, to their old home
at lone, and will again take up
their abode in Morrow county. It
has been three yearB since Wes
left this county and he has con-
vincea nimseit tnat our section is
ahead of the locality where he has
been. Farming in this county is
much easier, and the final returns
better and more satisfactory. It is
a pleasure to note the return of
such people to this section, and we
hope that Mr. McMabb will be as
successful here as he was in former
years. After all, it is bard to stay
away from Morrow county, and we
shrll not be surprised to hear of
many more doing as these people
have done. 1

Meeting a Success.
Those delegates who attended
the tri-state meeting of the Farm
ers' Union at Walla Walla last
week, have returned and pronounce
the meeting a success. The atten
dance was not as large as expected
yet the representation was good
from the states of Washington
Oregon and Idaho, and somethings
that the farmers have been work
ing for were definitely settled, and
good will come out of the delibera
tions of the convention. This
meeting bandied some big ques
tions, and there were some warm
discussions on different subjects,
bat it only cemented the fraternal
spirit between the farmers belong'
to the union, and will be the mean
of bringing about many things that
the farmers are working for. The
editor os this paper enjoyed the
convention very much, and feels
greatly repaid for the time spent in
attending. The knowledge gained

The CasH SKoe Store
As a result of less than three hours work on Monday.
the soliciting committee of the Morrow County Boost
Club, consisting of Messrs. W. S. Wharton, Clyde Brock,
ana J L. WiJkins, raised the splendid sum of 1100 as
Ileppner's donation to the work of advertising- the re
sources of Morrow County.
This committee was appointed some time ago, and
the preliminary steps taken to get funds together, but the
actual work of soliciting had not been taken up, and some
were beginning to fear that the work had been forgotten
and that the Boost Club had gone to its long sleep, and
there were even those among us who had dug its rave
many times, but the work of the committee and the
prompt and liberal response that they met with, disproves
such a theory, and adds strength and encouragement to
the cause of putting Morrow County on the map.
Heppner is alright and so are her business men. The
proposition of publicity funds is settled, and ' our adver
tising will go ahead without delay. The county is also
responding, as we understand that at this time D. E. Gil-
man has raised something over $400.00 in his field, and
the towns of Lexington and lone are yet to be heard from.
The following is the list of the Heppner boosters, and

Life Trails
A large and appreciative audi
ence greeted the Rev. W. L. Air
heart last Friday evening to hear
his lecture "Life Trails."
The lecture was well recieved by
those present and Mr. Airbeart
proved conclusively that be bad
made Ijo mistake in choice of sub-
jects. His delivery was good and
his subject was handled in a man
ner that showed his ability as a
scholar and thinker.
Iu his pictures of the trails of
life the contrasts were plainly
drawn; the one leading down in
the valley where there is darkness
and gloom ; the other along the
hillside of sunshine and hope.
To those who view life seriously
his lecture was more than interest
ing, and after bearing it we believe
that very few of os would choose
the lower way, bat rather the way
along the hillside where we can
have the sunshine of life as we
It was easy to perceive that he
had made a stu.lv of life and hai a
very bro&d and comprehensive view
of the subject.
We have no hesitation in Paying
that it Mr. Airbeart should decide
to. deliver bis lecture at other
points, his audiences will bt? given
a treat that is worth much more
than the admission fee.
I3y referring to the advertising
columns, you will note that the
big sale at Minor & Co. closes Sat
urday. This has been a genuine
bargain sale, and all those who
failed to take advantage of it cer
tainly missed an opportunity to
get bargains. The sale all the way
through has been conducted on the
plan of absolute fair dealing, and
haa been a puccesa in every way.
Yoa should avail yonreell of the
closing salea days and be convinced
that what we eay is true.
City council met in regular ees
sion at the city hall on Monday
evening, with Mayor Woodson and
councilmen Minor, Humphreys,
Aiken, Kirk, and Noble, present.
The application of Pete Eaton
for a liquor license was the means
of opening up a lively discussion.
The license committee reported ad
versely on the petition,' but the
qaestion being presented to the
council, tha body refused to sus
tain the report and proceeded to
yote to grant the license.
The issue was raised, of course,
upon the qaestion of the right of
the council at this time, under the
provisions of ordinance No. 123, to
grant any further licensee. The
license committee beiu? C. A.
Minor, Humphreys, and Noble, the
two former held the view that no
further license could be granted.
Mayor Woodson stated to the coun
cil, before a vote was taken, that
he Would not support the granting
of further licenses under this or
dinance, and that if it was the in
tention to d 3 so he would refuse to
sign a license thus granted; that
before undertaking to do this the
council should first annut the ordinance.
The council then proceeded to
l H. - ...
vine ou me question or grauting a
license to the applicant, and the
ayes and nays being called foi, the
vote was as follows: Ayes, Aiken,
Noble, Kirk; nays, Minor, Hum
phreys. Upon further discussion, how
ever, the vote was reconsidered,
and the matter of gtauticg the
license left as reported oa by tha
litvnse committee.
