A reliable friend of this paper
residing at lone, has been keening
tab on the poultry aud egg business
of that little oily for he past year
and his figures are interesting reading.
There was a total of 39,048 dozen egs
shipoed to the cntside market bes'des
an estimated amount of 3,360 dozen
sold by the local dealers to their
city and country trade. This does
not take into account what was
purchased by the people direct from
the producer but taking the figures as
given above and niultplving this by
the average price paid 25 cents per
dozen and vou have the neat sum of
$10,827 which was disbursed among
the poultry raisers for the eggs alone.
There was also shinned from lone
during this period 20,000 of chickens,
turkeys, geese and ducks which were
sold at the average price of 12j cents
per pound, adding 2500 more to. the
account and making a total of $13,227
realized by these people on their
poultry for the past year. As stated
before this does not, of course repre
sent the full amount realized, but it
does give an estimate of what the
industry has meant to the people 'of
our neighboring city and the farmers
who trade there. The poultry indus
try in Morrow county is only in its
infancy and when we begin to get into
the business as we should these
figures will be greatly multpliied
lone has been the principal shippng
point so far and the people down tha
way are beoooppg more and more in
terested in this Hue, just as they are
all over the country. It should not be
muny years before Morrow county
will be recognized as leaning every
other section of the state in the pro
duction of poultry and eggs. We
have the climate can raise the feed,
and all the conditions necessary to
the success of the business are hern
and our people wiljl not be slow in
taking hold of this industry from now
on. Ia the meantime prepare for
the big show of the Morrow County
Poultry Association this coming win
The tragic death of a bright, prom
ising: boy at Lexington this week, at
the hands of a school-mate, caused
a severe shock to the entire coramun
itv. It was indeed sad, and not the
least unfortunate feature touchiug
the tragedy is the apoareut indiffer
ence of the lad who is responsible for
the taking off of a fellow beiug,
There seems to be but little value
placed on the life of a human being
by too many people these days, and
this wculd appear from all the facts
that we gather, tj be a case of crim
inal recklessness. A boy who has
reached the age of 15 yeais is certain
ly responsible for his acts, and to do
a ttvng of this nature shows that he
is devoid of a proper conception of
the value of human life, is a danger
ous person to be at large, and should
be dealt with accordingly. On the
one hand a borne is bereft of a bright
and prom.sing boy; on the other, the
parents have been brought to the
deepest gref and suffering because uf
the thoughtless action of one of their
naniber. Let the bovs of iur com
munity take a lesson from this sad
occurrence and have a thought always
for the little fellows with whom they
come in contact at scnooi ana else
Hon. W. R. Ellis is in Heppner
looking uo his old-time friends aod
repairing political fence?. This paper
mentioned last week that it was our
opinion that of all the present aspir
ants for congressional honors from this
district, Mr. Ellis stands at the head.
By reason of his long years of service
in Congress he is "on to the ropes,"
and easily takes a place of leader-hip.
No doubt the other gentlemen se'eking
the Domination are excellent men,
but they are new and any one of them
would have to spend the greater part
of his term in getting shaped up to
do any actual work. Mr. Ellis
because of his experience, will not
have to do this. He was awlavs a
quiet but persistent worker for Ore
gon's interests and accomplished much
for the state during his terms of
service at Washington.
The office of Commissioner is an
important one and should be filled by
a man who is conversant with the needs
of the county. M. A. Bates, of
Hardman has announced himself a can
didate for nomination to this office on
the republican ticket' He has been a
resident of the south end of the county
for a long number of years and during
a greater part of this time hag served
the people of his precinct as justice
of tha peace. Mr. Bates is well
qualified for the new office to which
he aspires , and it now Ioors as though
he would be nominated without J
