J. F. Wineland, of Portland,
Successful Bidder; Work
Begins at Once. Building
Completed By January 1.
The school board of District' No. 1
this week closed negotiations for the
construction of the new school house
and the plans are now in the hands of
the contractors. Work will bo
rushed with all possible haste and it
is the hooe of those connected with
the work to have the building finished
and ready for occupancy by the first
The successful' bidder was J. F.
Wineland, constructing engineei of
Portland. He wiil be represented
hern by Mr. 0. L. Ayerst. who is
uow om the ground and assembling
workmen to start the work of excavat
ing and other preliminaries.
The school board received a num
ber of, bid s from prominent contract
ing firms in the Northwest, but the
figures of Mr. Wineland proved the
most attractive and he was awarded
the contract. His figures as submit
ted to the board call for an expendi
ture of $33,384.00. This is consid
ered a very good contract. Other
bidders were much h'gher, some of
them running over $40,000. The low
figure doei not mean that the work
will be inferior to that calling for
more money. The work and material
will be of first cUss. The contractor's
rating is of the beet and his reputation
as an engineer is suoh that other con
tractors do not hesitate in recommend,
ins him. They are nnable to under
stand how he can do the work at scuh
a low figure but say that if he under
takes the work it will be finished
according to contract. This sounds
good, and the board is to be com
mended for their action in securing a
man of this kind to erect the building.
' As many Heppner peopl -already
know, the new building is to be the
same in appearance as the Newberg
High School. The materials to be
ussd are practically the same, con
crete and brick, Newberg pressed
brick for facings. The structure
when completed will be very im
posing and undoubtedly be the finest
public boilding in the county.

- School Notes.
By Bupt. Notson.
On the 9th inst. I visited the school
in District No. 7. Mies Florence
OlmBted is in charge of this school.
Since my former visit, a new map of
the United States, a fine globe, a new
dictionary, and some new blackboard
have been added to the equipment.
The pupilsTiavn been trying out some
interesting experiments in agriculture.
A horse put its nose through a broken
window and devoured some of the
specimens which were kept in the
light near the window. However, this
did not discourage the pupils. One
of the pupils was writing for some
bulletins which may be obtained from
the Department of Agriculture. The
pupils are very much interested in the
The next" school in my line of march
was the one in District No. 51, which
Is under the direotion of Miss May
Severance. The pupils have a nice
collection of window plants, though
some of the plants were not as nice
as they might have been had not a
wood-rat eaten off the tops a short
time before. This school bad an ex
cellent new flag displayed on the flag
staff. Paint has been purchased with
which to paint the interior of the
school house, and it will not be many
days until the work will be done.
This will add much to the appearance
of the room. Some of the smaller
pupils are greatly interested in needle
work. All the pupila are making
good progress in their work.
In passing through Hardman, I
noted that a new fence has been built
around the school grounds. Also,
that a new outbuilding bad been erec
ted on the boys' side of the premises.
Three teachers have been employed
for the ensuing year. , and Hardman
expects to have an excellent school.
Dr. Winnard has taken a special
course on eve jiseaiosand is prepare!
to fit glasses properly.
The time is appioaching when
arrangements must be made for the
school fair which was planned' last
winter The Commercial Club should
begin to get together the funds for the
premiums. Sunt. Notson is consider
ing plans for making the most of the
fair and will soon be ready to an
nounce the date. However, be will
advise with the club before making
any announcement. Owing to the
fact that the district fair at Pendleton
comes rather early it mav be necessary
to bold the school fair after the dis
trict fair. If so, pupils who desire
to compete at the district fair, may
do so, and then place their exhibits in
the sohoul fair afterward. In the
rush of taking care of the big crop
let us not lose s'ght of the school
fair, and we should also keep in mind
the district fair. .
Wedding Bells Again.
A very quiet wedding was solemn
ized on Monday night of this week,
the 19th, at the home of Mr and Mrs.

Methodist church. The couple were
attended by the groom's sister, Miss
Ella, and by Mr. J. B. Sparks; Miss
Helen Aiken presiding at the piano.
Those present wre Mr. and Mrs. Geo.
C. Aiken, the Misses Helen and Ella,
Masters Henry, Jared, and Paul, and
Messrs. Orve Rasmus. J. B. Sparks

where they will be at home to their
many friends, and where Mr. Aiken

Pennsylvania, but now from Portland
and the groom is well know in this

Climbed Mt. Adams.
Rev. Johfi McAllister returned from
his vacation trip to Glen wood, Wash.,
Saturday. On the 14th of August
Mr. McAllister, in company with a
party of seven other people ascended
to the top of Mt. Adams. His ac
count of it is given briefly sb follows:
A nary consisting of E. A. Shannafelt,
Rev. Owen Umsted, Miss RuthUmsted,
S. J. White and Mies Edna White,
of North Yasima, Rev. John Mo
Allister, of Heppner, and Mr. Hickey
of Glenwood, rode ten miles to the
snow line from Gotch?n creek and be
gan to make the ascent to Mt. Adams.
They were encountered by a snow
storm, took shelter behind the large
boulders and after the heavens were
cleared they succeeded in getting tc
the top. Unfortunately the mountain
was covered with a cap of fog, but
the sight of the snow cones and cre
vasses were worth seeing. They came
down in an hour, eliding on the snow
all the way, and enjoyed themselves
immensely. One of the party who
went to the top was Mr. White who
