CECIL FOLK RECOVER
The people of Cecil are just begin
ning to resume their normal occupa
tions after having enjoyed themselves
to the limit at Frank Habelt's birth
day party, which was held on the
fourth of this month in the Cecil Hall.
We can say that Frank did not forget
any of his friends, because we are in
receipt of a generous portion "of the
birthday cake. One of the unique
features of the party about which con
siderable comment has been heard
was the introduction of the guest and
his "bride." They were wheeled into
the room, Mr. Habelt with his eyes
blindfolded. He thought that he had
a sure-enough bride, but when his
eyes were uncovered, he found that it
was a dummy. Hovever, Frank was
not to be taken back, but had her sit
with him at the big birthday supper.

In the decision of the Supreme
Court rendered, in this state about
two weeks ago, F. M. Templeton was
awarded a judgment for the amount

Wednesday night was a big night
for Rebekahs and Oddfellows of Hepp
ner and vicinity. The occasion was
the visit of Grand Patriarch Geo. W.
Wright of Albany, who delivered an
interesting and instructive address to
over one hundred and twenty mem
bers of the Order, and a few invited
Deputy Patriarch T. E. Chidsey was
chairman of the evening. Preceeding
the address a short musical program
was rendered which consisted of piano
solos by Miss Virginia Crawford,
vocal solos by Miss Thorley and vocal
duets by Miss Long and Mrs. Harlan.
The speaker then occupied the plat
form and held his audience in close
attention for nearly an hour. Grand
Patriarch Wright spoke of his coming
to Heppner to make his start in life
some thirty years ago and since leav
ing here twenty-five years ago he had
not returned until Tuesday evening
His address on Oddfellowship, what it
means and what it stands for, was
greatly appreciated by the members
present and gave his hearers a closer
understanding of the obligations which
they, as members, were under. Fol
lowing the address the members and
their friends were seated in the dining
hall where they ate heartily' of an
elegant banquet, the main dish of
which was clams, and moreclams. In
the eating contest Dr. Winnard was
again far in the lead of his nearest
rival, Hanson Hughes. Our old friend
Andy Cook was in charge of the
kitchen and kept his assistants on the
jump all the time to see that every
one present lacked nothing. The mem
bers departed for their homes as the
midnight hour was announced by the
Court House clock.
