GET READY FOR IT.
The Directors of school district
No 1, of Heppner, are facing the
necessity of making some quite
extensive improvements to our
school building as the structure is
inadequate, for the present needs
of the school. Besides, the
buildine is needing some repairs;
it should be painted inside and
out; the foundation is crumbling
in places, and in fact the build
ing is considered to be in an' un
The building was erected some
twenty years ago at a cost to
the district of S12000. It never
was what it should have been,
and the placing ' of the structure
way up on the side of that hill,
was a great mistake, that can be
testified to by the parents of
children attending, and sufficient
suffering has been caused on ac
count thereof. It is a pictur
esque sight but impractical, and
should be condemned
thorofni-o nnrwspfl tnUhinf? needed to 'feed -Oregon
the spending of one cent by the
Board on the present school
house, and strongly favor the
proposition of building a new
structure on more suitable
grounds. To be sure, a building
to meet present and future re
quirements of the district will
cost money and require the ex
penditure of perhaps $40000, but
it does not have to be paid in a
day, and by bonding the district
for a term of twenty years, those
to receive the benefits from it in
the future will help to bear the
So let us nrenare for a new and
up-to-date school building of suffi
cient size and proper equipment
for the growing needs of the dis
trict. It is a move in the direc
tion of progression, whereas,
every dollar spent in improving
the old building is so much money

Date for Fair at Condon
Fixed for Oct. 15, 16 and 17
Some Prizes Arranged.
On Monday last the officers of
the Tri-County Development
.eague were called to Arlington
by President George B. Dukek
to fix the date of the first tri
county fair to be held at Condon
this Fall, and also to arrange for
the premiums to be offered.
The meeting was favored by
the presence of Hon. J. N, Teal,
of Portland, and W. L. Crissey,
representing the Portland Com
mercial Club, and Prof. Orren
Beaty, expert agriculturist of the
Moro experiment station, who
came to lend their support and
assistance in futheringthis work.
October 15th, 16th and 17th
was Hprirlpn1 unnn as beine1 the
most favorable date for the fair,
bemer as nearly as possible be
tween harvest and seeding. Also
this date does not conflict with
rlatps of other fairs.
There will be $1700 worth of
premiums given to the exhibitors
at the fair, besides a large num
hpr of merchandise Drizes con
sistine-of silver cues and vases.
which are now on exhibition at
Condon, to which rilace Mr. Teal

A e-reat deal of enthusiam is
manifest in Sherman and Gilliam
ron nties over the Question of ex
hibits and nnzes and a splendid
showing is assured. Now let
Morrow county come to the front
with her products and the success
of the fair is assured.
A 'complete list of classes of
exhibits and premiums to be
awarded will be mailed to all in
terested parties just as soon as
they come from the printers.
It is especially desirable that
we as a countv make our best
showing at this fair as, where
permission of the exhibitor is ob
tained, the exhibits of fruits,
grains and vegetables will( be
shipped to the great land shows
of the East, for advertising pur
poses. In each instance the name
and address of the producer will
be attached so that interested
Easterners may communicate di
rect in looking for lands.
This is the opportunity lor
which we have been waiting.
Let every man in Morrow county
prepare at least one exhibit for
this great fair, thus proving to
the country at large that Morrow
county is on the map and is still
the Garden Spot ot the barth.
