The school picnic at Lone Rock
Friday was one of the best days
ever know in that city. After
the big din.ier at noon, County
Agriculturalist Hawkins gsve a
short talk on county agent work
and this was followed by the
drive for Red Cross funds. 188 60
was raised in a few minutes.
Miss Estella D. Parker donated
a centerpiece which sold for $25
and Mrs. Sarah Scott gave a
cushion cover which sold for
$12.50. Mr. Hawkins instructed
the school children in stock judg
ing and then came the field meet
in which everyone took part
One of the main events was the
footrace in which Henry Neel
beat Indian George. George was
not satisfied so he wanted to
wrestle and was matched against
J. C. Hawkins Neither man
knew that the other was a wrest

a furious battle for 15 miuntes
with Mr. Hawkins the winner,
although at the end only a few
shreds of clothing were left on
A number of progressive far
mers of Gilliam county are pre
paring to handle all their grain
in bulk. J. A. Simmons is build
ing a 10,000 bushel elevator on
his farm; J. C. Cooney has one
of 8000 bushels; R. H. Schomp is
building one to hold 10.000
bushels and Tom Conner at Mik
kalo will build one holding 10,000
bushels. Most of these farmers
are also putting in cleaning
machinery. W. G. NeVill of the
Condon Milling Co. drew the
plans for there.
There is no use going to the
stores to buy wheat flour this
week, that is not until Saturday,
for they will not sell you any
For five days no wheat flour is
to be sold by any dealers in the
state except in specified cases
such as hospitals, logging camps
and bakeries. This drastic ac
tion was taken Saturday by the
food administration to curtail the
consumption of wheat following
the adoption of the wheatless
resolutions at the war confer

There will be no June term of Circuit
Court in Gilliam county this year. Or
dinarily court would have convened
next week but has been called off for
the reasons that the court feels that to
take the farmers from their work at
the present time would have a tendency
to lessen crop production when every
bushel is needed; that it will save the
county probably 1400 in jury fees and
that the officers of the courty are busy
with war activities such as the Red
Cross, Armenian and Assyrian relief
drives and in the sale of Thrift and
War Saving Stamps, and in mobilizing
and preparing the boyB who are called
for service. All this is in Hue with
President Wilson's request that every
one do his best to assist his country
and no one can be prejudiced because
the cases for trial and not of public im
portauce and affect inbividuals only in
