mentioned so far. From all appear
ances, Athena's city election, which
occurs on March 3, will be a rather
tame affair, to say the least. But
then, you cannot always tell which
way the ball will roll, and mayhap
there is fun in store for the boys yet.

The council and the city marshal
came together again in regard to a
bill. Mr. Gillis wanted ?36for 12
days carpenter work. Councilman
Kirk thought times were too hard to
pay. that amount, and thought $2
per day reasonable. Mr. Gillis pre
ferred if the bill was to be cut to
have the number of days lessened
and not the amount per day, as' he
did not wish to establish a precedent
of working at his trade for $2 per
day. Mr. Kirk then made the motion
to allow Gillis $24 for 8 days carpen

Born In Athena, February 1, 1896,
to Mr. and Mrs. G. W. Hansell, a
Mrs. Lowell Rogers and Mrs. Ad
am Knox were central figures in a
runaway below town Sunday night.
The buggy pole tore thro' the neck
yoke, and scared the team.. The
ladies were thrown to the ground and
Mrs. Rogers severely hurt. The bug
gy is a wreck.
The funeral train conveying the
remains of Sam P. Sturgis for inter
ment at Walla Walla, passed through
this city at 9:22 this morning. Many
friends of the deceased were at the
depot together with the Masonic
lodge of this city, who marched to
the train in a body, and boarded the
train for Walla Walla to take- part
in the funeral ceremony.
R. M. O'Brien is one farmer of
this neighborhood whose foresight
and faith have brought him reward.
Mr. O'Brien has believed all along
that the low price of wheat could not
last. He thought and said that when
such a staple remained lower than
the cost of production, it was no time
to sell; such a condition was unnat
ural, and could not endure forever.
So he held on to his crops of 1894
and 1895 with the persistency of a
book asrent to a promising victim,
and mortgaged his home place that
he might be enabled to do so. His
patience has at last been rewarded,
much to the pleasure of himself and
friends. Last Saturday he sold 5400
bushels, the purchasers being Stump
& McCaw, of the Weston mills, and
W. S. Byers, the big Pendleton mil
ler. The price was 52 and 54 cents,
and enabled Mr. O'Brien to free him
self from his mortgage and all other
obligations. He yet has 3000 bush
els, which he is in no hurry to sell.
Sam P. Sturgis died at his home on
Water and Johnson streets a few
minutes after 9 o'clock Tuesday
night. Hardly a second later the
news of the death of Pendleton's
most prominent and popular citizen
got abroad and caused sorrow among
those who knew him intimately and
tnose wno were chance acqua:u-
tances; all recognizing him as a trus
benefactor, a man of sterling integ
rity and a man of conservatism, tru
ly beneficial to all communities, in
fact, a man who had the interests of
his adopted city at heart.
Ay, That's Me Rub
The word "scrape," meaning a dif
ficulty or some unfortunate predica
ment, has several synonyms, as "rub,"
a "squeeze," a "pinch," etc., all of
which are younger than the term
"scrape," and of slightly different in
terpretation. "Getting Into a scrape"
fcame from Scotland, and the expres
sion is as old as the ancient and
honorable game of golf. Is Scotland
a rabbit's hole or, burrow Is called a
"scrape." When a player'i ball rolled
into one of these holes It was mani
festly impossible to play It, and the
rules of the game recognized this
fact by naming but a slight penalty for
the player.' He merely "got into a
scrape." Chicago Journal.
