Last Sunday was a big day at Liberty. The house was full of people both morning and evening. The Sunday School is doing excellent work. The prayer meeting held every Sunday evening is a marked success. Sixty and seventy persons lake an active part each time. Some word is given out on the previous eveaing by the leader. Then each one takes the bible and finds a verse of seriDlure with that word in it. Ihe word last Sunday evening was Blood. Wl.st a scene! Old and young with a bible in hand standing and reading in turn the verses selected witli an oprapional piayer and song inter-' spcrced. Was there ever a more decided cha'ge in a community in so sh-rt a time' It cnly illustrates what the gostiel will do f-r any people. It makes them better in eveiy sense. They become more unselfiih, developing the social as well as the moral,, side of life. Not long since about 60 people assembled at the hotre tf Theodore Auderson to give a joint birthday surprise for Mrs. Anderson and Mrs. Dan Rarlow. To say all had a good time would be putting it mildly. That is a mag nificent home with many doors and strings attached for the accommoda tion of all. There good people verify the scripture saying, viz; "No man liveth to himself and no man dieth to himself." The ball rolls on and on and 60 persons are gathered at the home of Rev. Teague, the hen house is unlocked. 32 chickens are not taken out but put in. ' Among them two of the kind Lorenzo Don't used to capture the thief who stole the pocket book and that answered well for an alarm clock. This happy bonch took possession of the premises nd eaid "we are monarch of all we survey." Alter all were gone the Reverend wondered if a cyclone had parsed by. Ail this is as it ought to be. Next Saturday the men and boys are to meet at Mr. Robinson's to organize a base ball team, games to be played on Saturday afternoon's. With movort;enin of this kird in voguo and the splendid prospects for good crons, Fnrely there is a better coming for Morrow counly. Along Rhea Creek new irrigating ditches and aTalfa fields are being opened up. New houses and barns and hence more families is destined to make this a veritable Eden. All this section is destined to be prosperous because of its enterprising citizens. AH kinds of industries are being planned and enterprised. Bees, poultry, hog?, cuttle, horses, alfalfa, grains, orchards and gardens will all receive due attention and become profitable. A splendid Enster time is being planned" for Liberty next Sunday evening. The Rev. Toague is preach ing at a number of theee coantry points. The 3rd Sunday in each month is his dav at Liberty and the 4th is the day fcr t! U cr be E. P. WARREN. Children are much more likely to -contract the contagious diseases when the child has a cold.

Our friend, Bert Maron, sends up the re port for the past eight day. or the first week in Apri', and the ship menmts have been 109 cases, or 3370 dozen at per dozen, netting the farmers $572 25. Mrs. French Bur roughs leads the producers with 303 dozen for the period. This is quite a showing for Easter week, and the lone hen is only just becinning to get busy. The good peocle down that way have added a splendid asset and the business should grow rapidly fiom now on. There is money in it and ' w believe Mcrrovr county oan produce all the eggs that the Port lard market and other outside points can consume when we fairly get into the businers. And by the way, Hepnner has been doing a little egg shipping the pst week: in fact foi theDsst two months our merchants have been pending out many cases of eggs and the firmer hereabout are hrireing them in lively. It is a liMle hard to arrive at the exact figures for the reason that the merchants heie have not all of them taken the trouble to keep exact dat. But it is an unusual thing for Heuuner to be uiiiwping out any quantity of eggs at this sra3on, the rule haa been to ship in, so this shows that the industry is growing fast at this end of the county too. Besides fullv supplying the local de mand which is large at this season, better than two hundred cases have gone to the Portland market. We hope to be able to give exact figures from now on, as the merchants here are beginning to realize tint the business is growing- fast and it is important to have this information for publication.

So far in the primarv campaign, the Gazette-Times has seen fit to take but little interest in the campaign for state officers but there is one man before the people that we are par ti.ularly anxious to see nominated and elected, and ihat is Frank S. Fields, the present incumbent of the county clerk's office in Moltnomah county. Mr. Fields is candidate before the republicans of the state fcr the nomi nation of Secretary of State. He has been the efficient clerk of Multnomah county for the past ten years, dur ing which period he has been able by his splendid business ability and systematic management, to place that office on a profit paying basis of $30, 000 annually, whereas, under former administrations the less had been 16, 000 annually. He has given close attention to the duties of the office and conducted the same as a business office should be conducted. Furthermore, Mr. Fields is making his campaign as a straight republi can, and is not looking to. or appeal ing 10 anv but republicans who are interested fn the principles of the party to place him in nomination. So why award a domo;ratic appointee by casting your vote for the present incu-nbent, and Mr. Field's only opppctnt for the nomination, who by his own Eworn Etatement appended herewith, boosted Oswald West into the governor's offioe, and is now ask ing the republicans to kefp him there. Mr. Olcott is no doutt an efficient man,' but if he retains his office it should be through the votes of democrats and not republicans, for they certainly owe him nothing. Here is his statement: "United States of America, State of Uregon, Office of the Secretary of State. I, Ben W. Olcott, Secretary of State of the State of Oreson and Custodian of the Seal of said State,' do hereby certify : That I have carefully compared the annexed copy of the statement of receiDts and expenditures of West Booster Club with the original there of, which was filed in the office of the Secretary of State of the State of Oregon, on the 23idday of Novem ber, 1910, aud that it is a correct trarscript therefrom and of the whole of such original.

Morgan, Oregon, April , IflLj. Sporting Editor: The Morgan Regulars met defeat at the hauda of the fast playina lone High School nine by the score of 14 to 7. The game was fast and exciting throughout. Catcher Oleary and First Baseman Pierce did excellent work for Morgan, while Ritchie, Blake and Rietrean did some quick stunts for lone. Although Morgan was defeated Saturday we ars willing to bet tbey will get the kids the next time. Morgan's defeat was due to poor playing in the outfield, and the poor coaching of.. Capta'n Cumrnings, has-been, who is tryirg to fchow tha boys some new stunts in base ball. A change in the line-up and a few new players aod Morgan might be able to play ball. From a constant Reader and Sub scriber at Morgan. Someone Answer. Cecil, Orpgon, April 6, 1912. Editor Gazette-Times. Please answer tha following ques tions in your valuable parer. 1. There are one million rabbila on lower Willow creek, aud they will increase ten-fold during the summer. There are no coyotes cn the cree, and they will increase three-fold during the summer. Each eovote will kill cne thousand rabbits. How many rabbits will there be nest fall? 2. If a legislator is bitten by a coyote and has the rabbies or bas gone mad, will the act of him sitting in the legislature give the people tba hydrophobia? Yours truly, W. B. EWINGJ. Is Doing Great Work. The editor of this paper took occa sion to visit the field at the top of the Eight Mile grade jost sooth of town, where the big Oil Pull engine is demonstrating what it can do in the line of practical farm work. W. P. Sorivner is directing the work, and the machine is in charae cf Clarence Scrivner and Charley Ayerg, the former acting as engineer and tha latter handling the section of foor plows that is being used. The field in which they are workinsr la so situated as to he a fair place for showing the possibilities of the en gine, as it lays on practically Un per cent gradt, is quite rocky in some places and has been under cnltivation for a sufficient length of time to soften up the surface. The engine has no difficulty whatever in moving along at a good speed and the boya are plowing at the rate of an acre par hour. To do this requires the coat of $4 worth of fuel per ten acree, besides the wages of a man and boy, and Mr. Scrivner figures that it would take a team of twelve head of borsea to accomplish a like amount of work. Four plows, only are being osed 3n this demonstration, but on fields that are more level than this one, six plows can be handled just as easily. Each plow i worKS in an individual wanner so that if one strikes an obstruction the ethers are not dis turbed. This makes it easy to handle in fields that are mora or- less reeky or uneven of surface. Tho ergir.e maintains au even fiecd and a small boy can handle the plows just as well as a n;an. It seems ' to us that this machine should prove a coed ard economical investment to these far mers who have power thrashers snl now have their ni(wy tied rp in steam outfits that lay i ile for ft'jpat ten month3 in the year. This erire ccuid be utilized to good advantage on a great many of the.-e farms ss it would be ready for the Irivirg of ary kind of machinery and he!p in turn ing off the plowing ard harrowing of tie lands as well. Our farmers should not fail to witnefs tbeso demonstrations. Another den; n.-.t ra tion will be mrde cn Tue-day, th- lGth, at the head of the Eight Mi: grade. Thresher For Sale.
