Bovvker and Orve Rasmus, who have

Club Building, will remodel the place

far to the rear of the building as
possible. When the work is completed
the building and stage will be large
enough to accomodate large crowds
and a large troupe of actors. The
town has felt the need for a long time
of a public theatre of this size and
local people will be glad to hear that
we are soon to have a first-class
theatre equal in size and equipment to
those found in towns many times

FAITHFUL BEAST DIES
One of the familiar figures upon the
treets of Heppner for a good many
years past was "Paddy" the faithful
work horse owned by F. N. Frye, the
drayman. "Paddy" was 26 years old
and evidently thought he had lived
long enough. On Monday, while haul
ing a load of wood from the depot,
he decided that his load was a little
too heavy for a horse of his age and
proceeded to lie down in the harness
and die, which feat he accomplished
without much effort. Mrs. Frye in
formed the Herald man that, in her
opinion, "Paddy" deserved an obit
uary, hence the above.
Demonstrations have been given

R. A. BOOTH
Republican Nominee for United States
To Our Readers:
After having published our "state
ment of facts" in answer to a scur
rilous attack upon the writer, by one
A. L. Sparling, we interviewed the
majority of the business men of Hepp
ner and upon their advice we have de
cided to refrain from further contro
versary in this matter. Any remarks
that Mr. Sparling nay make regard
ing this paper we will salt down
with those he has made concerning the
majority of the balance of the busi
ness houses of the city.
One statement made in our issue of
the Kith inst., we wish to correct,
however. We stated that we were not
in the employ of any syndicate. We
wish to usknowledge that we are in
the employ of a syndicate which is
composed of some 1500 of Morrow
County's progressive citizens, men
and women who are alive to the fact
that The Herald's columns contain
more news matter than were ever be
fore printed in a newspaper in this
iicguimng our reasons lor moving
to Heppner from lone we might state
that our books are open to any of
our friends and upon investigation it
will be proven that from June 1,
1 1 1 i to June 1, l'.ll I, the business done
I by the Ime Bulletin in Heppner
amounted to nearly twice the amount
(if business done in lone. This fact,
j coupled with the earnest requests of
1 people from all sections of the county
outside of the city of lone that the
I writer establish a paper at the county
jt.eat, was the direct reason for our
j having established The Heppner
As for our having the support 01
lb! "wets" in our business we will

what dentist, refuses to accept lhc

"wets?" We never heard of a grocer I
refm ing to sell a "wet" man a sack
of flour or of a doctor refusing t" at

"Little Dutch," the race horse owned
by Jack Eads of Hardman has been
sold to Wm. Wilkirvs of Pendleton.
The aalc took place after the V4 mile
race at Condon during the fair. "Little
Dutch" is well known to all followers

meets, and has seldom lost a race.
