HEPPNER, OREGON, TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 12, 1922
PASSES AT RIPE OLD AGE
Mrs. Ana M. Minor, one of Mor
row county's oldest and most highly j
respected pioneer women died at her
summer home at Rockaway, Oregon,
Sunday, September 10, 1922, at the
age of 83 years and 13 days.

The Hill family moved to Iowa
about the year 1858, that being the
year the subject of this sketch was
married to Ellis Minor. In 1864 the
Minor family crossed the plains to
Oregon, settling first in Marion county
where they remained until May 1871
when they came to what is now Mor
row county and settled on Rhea creek
living on the ranch until 1874 when
they removed to Heppiner. Mr. and
Mrs. Minor were among the earliest
settlers of this city and they were ac
tively engaged in business here until
his .death several years ago.
Mrs. Minor was respected and
much beloved by a large circle of
friends and acquaintances as a fine
type of the pioneer women whose
strenuous lives on the frontier offer
ed so many opportunities for show
ing the sterling qualities of woman
hood without which Oregon could
never have grown to be the fine state
Mrs. Minor was the mother of nine
children, seven of whom survive her.

HEPPXEIt CAN" SHOW FINE CROP
Heppner is not the biggest town in
Oregon but it is doubtful if any other
town in the state can boast of such
a luxurious growth of weeds along the
sidewalks as we have on exhibition.
The sidewalks on May street aro al
most closed to navigation now and if
an unusually early frost does not
spoil the crop pedestrians will goon

hours in Crater lake and got one 18

explained that something more than
3000 fishermen had been there ahead

not what it might have been.

FAMILY WHILE ASLEEP
Mrs. James Murtha and children
had an experience with a wild cat
this week at their summer home in
the Six-Shooter country, which Ihey
will not wish to repeat. One of the
tha was severely clawed and scratch
ed by the animal.
During the night the cat epi-.e"d.
the house, making its way to tin
bed where Mis'. Murtha and har two
youngest children were slot ping,
siezed one of the children by the
head. It tried to pull the child fn.iu
the bed. This awakened the mother
who immediately siezed the ani nal by
the throat. As the room was dark
she could not see what sort of an an
imal it was whether cat, wolf, bear
or cougar. But she grappled wit 1 i
anyhow. Meeting with resistance,
combined with attack, the animal let
go the child and escaped from' Mrs.
Murtha and ran into another room
where three ofther children wee sleep
it.; on the floor. Being awak u d
b., th noise and becoming fright seed,
tvo of the children crouched beneath
the covers, but the other one sit, up
dying to see what was going on. Id
parsing, the cat gave the chili a side
sweep, scratching it about the arms
Mrs. Murtha gathered the children
about her in her room and shut the
door of the room into which tho ani
mal had fled.
At this juncture, Mike O'Leary, ai
employee, awakened by the uproar
came down stairs to see what the
trouble was all about. After beinf
pursuaded that some animal wa
locked in the other room, he socuree
a candle and an ax and went aftei
After a sNvipe or two at him with
the ax, the wild cat took refuge un
der a low bed, with springs and cover.
Locating the animal O'Leary killec
him with one blow, through th
I cover springs and all
Later examination showed the an
mal to be a long, lean, hungary lynx
cne of the cat tribe. It Is prol
able that hungar drove the animal tc
attack the children, as the lynx will
not usually molest any one, being ,
cowardly animal. But they become
vicious when hungry or when woun
ded. Mr. Murtha was In Condon at the
time. The next day he received ;
telephone message, but as the line
was not clear he could not under
stand jurt what h.id happened. But
he at once called Dr. Gaunt, r.nd they
made the trip (o the Six-Shooter
couuntry which lies between Rich
mond and Waterman. They found

VICE 10 DEER HUMTERS
A correspondent of the Portland
Journal writes the following advice
to deer hunters:
I see from numerous reports that
deer hunters this season are usually
successful for if they fail to ge-t a tteer
they are very apt to kill a man by mis
taking him for a deer. Being a deer
hunter many years ago, 1 feel that 1
should offer some advice to the young
men of this generation who would be

be to go out to the zoo and go near
to a deer, look It all over carefully;
look It square in the face. Notice
length and shape of its ears. Count
the number of legs it lias'; notice
whore it has a tail; observe closedy,

FIRSI FALL MEETING
The first meeting of the Brother
hood for the fall and winter season
was held at Hotel Patrick last even
ing when Manager and Mrs. Fisher
served an excellent luncheon to tho
50 or more members present .
President J. A. Waters presided at
the meeting which followed tho re
past and announced the program.
Miss Bernico Woodson favored with a
piano solo and was heartily encored.
Miss Quisenberry gave a very enjoy
able reading, also responding to ail
encore from the audience.
The subject of discussion was tha
strike quetion, not any particular
strike but strikes in general.
A report had been circulated tint
the discussion, was to take the form of
a debate on the railway shopmen
strike with Rev. Livingstone taking
the side of the employers and local
railroad men made an effort to secure
a union speaker from Portland but oil
the short notice were I'nnblo to do so.
Practically all the loc;l rallror.d men
were present, however, a' d tho out
come of the meeting must have bowl
tiuite satist'tory to them as' practically
every speaker endorsoed the labor
union movement and scored the abu
ses of capitalis'm so strongly that
many of them had to explain that, "I
am not a socialist, but "
Mr. Livingstone opened the discus
sion iin a speech in which h 3 made it
plain that he was on the side of labor
as long as labor kept within the law
In urging its dWtands for fair treat
ment and a square deal. His plain
for gi'tting away from tho strike as a
method of settling labor troubles,
which, be pointed out has never yet
settled anything, is government own-
ship of public utilities.
Rev. Glliland, of Lexington, placed
the blame for present social and econ
omic wiliest in tho home where chihl
ren are no longer taught to respect
the laws and the administrator:) oC
the law. He also placed i. share "of
the responsibility on the church, anil
I advocated a union of nil proti-stant
churches In their tight against pres
ent day evils. The schoolc were also
cril iclze'd because of the tendency to
day of ti'achlng the children the nec
essity of making money rather than
buililing character. He also thought
bail laws responsible and gave tho
lawyers a rap for making laws witli
too many loop holes through which
they can pull their cliemts out ot
trouble. He also blameel partisan
politics and urged that patty should
b-i lost sight of iu working for tin;
com mem good.
