Interested in the Raising of
Poultry to Meet on Tues
The Gazotte-Tiinps is informed by
Prenident Gurdane. of the Morrow
Umatilla Poultry Association that
there are more bird fanciers in and
around Heppner than there are about
Pendleton, and we know that our
bird raisers have been attending the
winter meetings of this association and
carrying of! the most of the prizes.
This industry is growing fast over this
way and the proposition to organize an
association for Morrow county indepen

A meeting is called for Tuesday
evpning at the council chambers to
take the initial sttps and stare the
matter off, and all the county are
urgently reauested to be present and
participate in the deliberations. All
other citizens interested are also in
vited. Come and help get another
good proposition on its feet.
This movement should be encouraged
by every one. It is not too early
to begin as there is much to be done
if a show is pulled off by nest
December, or thereabouts. The in
cubators will have to be put in action,
in fact the ho us will have to be
retted up so that the necessary pre-
iminary work of tbe incubators may
be done that suitable birds may be
provided. Then there is the young

looked, as prizes will be offered them
for poultry of their own raising, and

Good Platform. He Will
Make Strong Race for
having been a lawyer as well as a land
owner interested in the quostion of
getting water, that I am qualified
to a Blight extent anyway to represent
water users and enow something of
the needs of this Eastern Oregon coun
try with respect to irrigation. The
present method of handling the re
clamation work is too slow, too much
red tape. I would favor placing this
work in charge of a man of the capac
ity for work of Col. Goethals of the
Panama Canal, in fact we will soon
be called uoon to find a new job for
him, so why not put him in charge
of this reclamation work. Give him
a hundred million dollars to start in
with and more if he needad it to com
plete the work. Raise the money by
the use of the government credit,
the government is nothing more than
the people, arrange to pay the in
terest and gradually the principal, by I
easy annual installments to be paid
by the settlers on the reclaimed lands.
Get busy and let the present genra
tion see and enjoy some of the bene
fils that will come with the completion
ot tnis work. See also that Oregon
gets her fair share of the Reclama
Then we repaired to the school house
where the services were concluded.
A church organization consisting
of 35 persons nnd more to follow was
perfected. We have large plans for
the future. Keep your eye on as.

Mr. Editor: Allow me to say a
few words in regard to our meeting
which closed Sunday evening, Feb.
11, after running four weeks at Liber

successful meeting I ever held. Forty-eight
persons professed faith in
Christ most all grown-up people.

The past week has witnessed some
deals in real estate and other prop
erties, the most important being the
trade whereby E. M. Shutt comes into
possession of the Wiley Wattenburger
lfalfa ranch, 3 miles northwest of
lone. In the trade Mr. Wattenbur
ger takes over the Shutt residence
property in Heppner and will move
here with his family at once, and Mr.
Shutt and family have already re
moved to the farm. ' In the trade the
Times has come under control cf the
Gazette manaeement and will be con
ducted ia the future as per announce
ment in another column. From now
on Mr. Shutt will be engaged in the
raising of alfalfa hay. fruit, chickens,
pigs and dairy products for he has
come into possession of one of the
best small ranches in the county. He
should have abundant success and be
free from the worries and troubles
that beset the country editor. Mr.
Wattenburger will engage in real
estate business in Heppner at least
this is his present plans. At any
rate he is now placed in position to be
able to give his children school
privileges which were denied them
owing to the distance they were from
any school. The consideration in
this deal was $16,000.
Word received this morning by
relatives here announces the sudden
death of Dr. J. E. Adkins at his home
in Hillsboro. . Dr. Adkins was raised
in Morrow county and is well known
here. His brother J. J. Adkins. will
leave for Hillsboro in the morning to
attend the funeral.
Little Elsie, the six mouths old
daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Phill Jones,
of Hoppner passed away this morning
at 5:30 after an illness of several
lays with pneumonia. Everything
that mtdical skill and good nursing
could do was of no avail as the
disease had too firm a hold on the
littls one. Faneral services will be
held at the M. E. Church south on
tomorrow afternoon at 2:30, conducted
by Rev. E. P. Warren. In this sad
bereavement these young people have January 16th, 1912 itated that "Jerry

with me a picture to be hung in the
galleries of my memory never to be
taken down. We surrendered our
selves to the people and allowed them
to serve us as they pleased, which
meant a visit and to Borne a number
of visits to almost every home. No
people were ever more royally enter
tained than were we.
On the last Sunday of the meeting
we had the biggest day in the history
of the country, and the largest crowd
in 15 years. Oh what a day I The
people came from everywhere, bring
ing their Sinners. At the close of
the Sunday school the candidates for
memoersnip in tne cnurcn were pre
pared for the sacrament of baptism
and four were baptised by affusion
and then we had an intermission
some remaining at the sohool house
for lunch, but the majority went to
Theodore Anderson's, where they
spread their lunches on the large
tables in the dining room and kit
chen, also on the large porch. Mr.
and Mrs. Anderson soared no pains to
make everybody bappy by throwing
open their splendid home.
At about 2 o'clock the crowd as
sembled near the large tank which had
been prepared and filled with clean
water for the baptism where 13 per
sons were baptised by immersion.

pupils of this county. As soon as
the committees have made the arrange

well for the pupils to begin to prepai

cndoised ty the Bankers' Associa

make a beginning this year, and we
shonld try to do something creditable.
Three hundred prizes have been of
fered for the exhibits which will be
sent to the State Fair. The District
Fairs will offer some desirable prizes
also. So if we can get the prizes for
our local school fairs there will be
some encsuragement for the young
people to go to work. The work
will well repay them even if they de
not win a prize.
