In last issue we Rave an account

their clips at private sale. These
sales aggregate about 870,000 pounds
and consisted of the choicest clips of
the connty. The average price ob
tained was about 17 cents.

A large amount of wool remains
unsold but this will all be taken up
bv private boyers, no doubt in a
very short time, and it is not expected
that there will be another sales day
at Heppner. Interior cups are coming
in rapidly , and had it not been for
the condition of the roads, the most
of this wool would have reached the
warebonbes in Heppner for the sales
last week. Growers generally are
well satisfied with the prices received
and on the whole the season is wind
ing up very profitably for the flock-!
Horse Racing, Bucking Contests and
Bull Riding; fine camping ground and
good fishing; Big Dance at night and in
afternoon of each day.
COME AND ENJOY YOURSELF
N. H. LEATHERS,
While returning from a trip to his
farm, known as the Stalter ranch on
Thursday evening last, Dr. N. E.
Winnard met with an accident that
has put him "on the shelf " so to
speak, for the next few weeks to
come. He was riding that "infer
nal" machiue of his, otherwise known
a motorcyole, and speeding down
the road at a pretty good clip dodging
rocks and chucks as best he could,
but as it was setting dark he was un
able to see very well. Just after
passing the Al Osmin place the ma
chine struck a small rock and before
the doctor could gather himself he was
thrown to the road with the heavy
machine on top of his right leg, aod
grinding away at bis foot. He suc
ceeded in pulling himself loose and
found that no bones were broken but
that the foot had been badly wrenched
and sprained and the flesh and liga
ments torn from the bone. His
shonlder was also badly brnised and
altogether he was in a helpless condi
tion. R was impossible for him to
help himself so he had to lay beside
trig road for about two and a half
hours till some one came along to pick
him up. A little past eleven o'clock
he whs brought to the hospital and
his injuries oared for. He is done
with that machine and will seek a
safer mode of travel in the future,
being thankful that he got out of this
scrape without a cracked neck.
A very quiet wedding took place
early Monday morning of this week,
our genial baker, Frank Fnchs taking
unto himself a help-meet in the per
son of Mrs. Lena Lichtenthal. It
was surmised by a few that such an
event would take place sometime, as
they had seen the baker, tempting
the widow with frequent samples of
his culinary art, but it was quite a
surprise to have them np and get mar
ried and slip away so qneitly to Port
land on Monday's train, as man and
wife. The marriage took place at
the home of the bride, in thepiesence
of a few witnesses, the ceremony be
ing performed by the Rsv. W. A.
Pratt, pastor of the Methodist church.

FROM SUPT. NOTSON.
I desire to call attention to and in
dorse the letter of State Supt. Alder
man, found in this issue of the Gaz
ette-Times, in regard to the annual
meeting. I wish also to suggest that
it will be found advisable in most
districts to postpone voting a special
tax until after the tax roll is com
pleted next fall. You will then know
your valuation and will have reoeived
your apportionment irons tne state
and Connty funds, which will enable
you to determine more definitely your
financial needs. 1 tinst the clerks
will observe the note at the bottom of
the first page of the annual report
Llank and see to it that the report is
sent in within five daya after the an
nual meeting. The State Superinten
dent insists upon prompt reports from
the county superintendents, and the
county superintendent can not make
his report until the clerks have sent
in their reports.
Teachers who are entitled to renew
al of their certificates should make
application at the time of the regular
examination next week. I have blank
forms, which will be mailed upon
The Annual Meeting.
To the Patrons of Oregon Schools :
We do not attach sufficient import
ance to our annual school meeting.
This year our annual meeting occurs
June 17. On this day one director
and the clerk are to be elected in
eery sohool district in Oregon, a mat
ter of much importance to each com
muniy. I should be very glad, in
deed, to find that many of the Oregon
school districts were making the day
of the annual school meeting an im
portant occasion, and at the same time
taking advantage of being together to
talk over the problems of the schools.
The voting for director and clerk
will take place at the sohool house.
It should be remembered that women
already have the privilege of suffrage
in school elections. If all the women
of the comunity will pack their lunch
baskets, and assemble at the school
house on the morning of Jane 17, I
m confident that the men will be
there also when the sun reaches the
meridian. Of course, the members
of the family under voting age will
have to have dinner. So all will
spread out their lunches under some
pleasant shade, and enjoy dinner to
After a good dinner all will be in
the right frame of mind for selecting
the officers, and discussing school
affairs. The patrons will have this
opportunity to investigate the condi
tions of the school house and grounds,
and see what repairs are needed;
whether the school house is properly
heated, lighted, and ventilated, and
what books and pictures are most
needed. Let us make June 17 red
letter dsy for oar district.
Yours for better schools,
L. R. ALDERMAN,
Sup't. Public Instruction.
