HEPPNER, OREGON, January 16, 1917
We take pleasure in announcing
that any of our readers can secure a
pretty 1917 pocket diary, free of
charge, by sending the postage there
for, two cents in stamps to D. Swift
& Co., patent lawyers, Washington,
D. C. The diary is a gold mine of
useful information, contains the pop
ular and electoral vote received by
Wilson and Hughes from each state
in 1916, and also by Wilson, Roose
velt and Taft in 1912; states the
amount of the principal crops pro
duced in each state in 1916; gives the
census population of each state in
1890, 1900 and 1910, the population
of about 600 of the largest cities in
the United States; a synopsis of busi
ness laws, patent laws, household
recipes, and much other useful in
formation. The diary would cost you
25c at a book store. For three cents
in stamps they will send a nice wall
calendar, size 10 by 11 inches. Send
five one cent stamps and get the diary
Bad roads and car shorage have
robbed the farmers of Gilliam and
Wheeler counties of many thousands
of dollars during the past few months.
While wheat was at the top notch it
was all but impossible to make the
trip to Condon with loaded wagons,
and much of it will have to remain
on the farms till the roads dry op in
the spring. Some day, perhaps before
very long, we'll have roads that can
be traveled with loads any day in the
year, all the way to the Columbia
river, and some day, perhaps before
Gabriel blows his horn, there'll be
boats on that historic stream to take
our grain and other products to tide
water. Fossil Journal.

The revival meetings conducted by
Evangelist and Mrs, Fagan at the
Christian church are attracting a
great deal of attention and are being
well attended from night to night,
Evangelist Fagan is a forceful speak
er who has learned the art of holding
the attention of his audience, Mrs,
Fagan has one of the best contralto
voices ever heard, in Heppner,
Qn Sunday evening before a packed
(louse the evangelist delivered a
strong sermon pn "Conscience." Jle
paid jn parti "Conscience something
that all possess, but is hard to define.
It is higher than the law of any
church, state or government. In the
days of Daniel the prophet, King Dar
ius issued an edict that if any mar.
should afk a petition of any god or
jnjin for. 8(j days, save, of the ki,g, l:e
Nt)quliJ bj cpst" into Kg den fif linns.
But Danitd'H eonactenoe dafied the
edict of the Ling, for when he knew
sciences. They are those who profess
Christianity but don't live it. They
are like veneered furniture. It looks
like the real stuff, but when exposed
to the heat the veneer comes off. So
with the weak conscience Christian.
Ha may look alright for awhile but
when exposed to the fires of tempta
tion he twists, and bends, and doubles
and sometimes breaks. He attends
church just once a year. That is when
the revival meeting is in progress.
He is usually on the front seat, but
when the revival meeting is over, he
is gone, and the poor old pastor who
has to stay on the job all the year
never gets any help or encourage
ment from him. May the Lord deliver
me from such folks.
"Then there are those who have o
defiled or polluted conscience. These
are thu fulm Vhfl will engage in
fraudulent business; or vote for the
saloon; or steal a man's character.

scene of another double-header
basket ball game between Lex

In the girls game, L. Groshen
played the most consistant
game for Heppner, while Reany
and Allen starred for Lexington
For the boys Nicholson and
Crawford played their usual fast

well at guard, and Hughes play-'
ed a good game in his position
as center. For Lexington, John ,

I know that in there lies a loved one

pitiable person In this state is not the

to resist the message of the Son of
God, lest in so doing you may harden
your own hearts arid sear yo,ur. wn

75 more will be picked up on the way.
About 40 candidates will be initi
