The junior Lewis Van Winkle,
who is engaged with his brother in

town, was regretfully compelled to
include a runaway Monday among
his agricultural experiences and vi
cissitudes. The team charged into
a barbed wire fence, and both
horses were quite badly cut up.

Clarence O'Brien, a former Wes- . A. Leonard,
ton boy, son of R. M. O'Brien, has
been awarded a commission as
first lieutenant in the aviation sec

' - stationed at San Antonio, Texas.
He received his training m Georgia.
The news of his success was con

week by his cousin, Robert Reyn
olds. W. O. Read was brought to his
home near Athena Saturday even

Walla hospital. A trained nurse is
in constant attendance upon him,

He was worse Sunday, but next day
a change for the better was noted,
and his family and friends are now
hopeful of hia early recovery.
; The new steel bridge has been fin
ished at Mission on the Umatilla
river and the outfit is now at work
on the Thorn Hollow bridge. It is
expected that this will be complet
ed and the road down Thorn Hollow
improved by the first of July. Aside
from the hauling utility of the
Thorn Hollow bridge, it will be a
. great boon to Weston people who
want to go to the Umatilla river
for an outing.
Taking advantage of the Red
Cross dance to ply his nefarious
trade, a bootlegger motored into
town Saturday night with a suit
case full of "forty-rod." Evidently
the stuff was home made, for ac
cording to reports it stung like a
serpent and bit like an adder. It
likewise bit like a subtracter, for
the city substracted considerable
coin from the purses of three cele
branta who imbibed not wisely but
too well. The name of the sus
pected bootlegger was whispered
about town, but positive proof of
fcU guilt to lacking.
