Rood Canyon Item.
While hauling hay for Paul
Webb on Thursday last, Reub
Gaunt met with alivly experi
ence. He was coming down the
Curtis hill with a big load of
bundle hay when a portion of the
harness gave way, letting the
wagon run onto the horses. This
started the team to running
straight for a three wire fence
and it took some good work on
Reubs part to make a turn on the
side hill and keep the team out of
the fence, but he succeeded in
doing it. In order to get out of
the fracas himself he had to
make a jump from the load and
this give him a badly sprained
ankle. He was uninjured other
wise, and thinks it a bum team
that couldent out-run a wagon.

Marv C. Holt
Mary Caid was born in Virginia,
May 23, 1839. Her parents mov
ing to Indiana some years later.
August 2, 1804, she was married
to George G. Kile. To this union
were born two sons, both of
whom died in infancy. Losing
her husband Sept 15, 1867, she
was again married Dec. 27, 1809,
this time to Jas. S. Holt. Two
sons gladdened this union, Geo.
S. and I. E. About 40 years ago
they moved to Iowa, and 15 years
later to Astoria, Ore. and from
thence to Newberg. Oregon, and
about a year ago they came, with
their son I. E., (with whom they
had lived for several years), to
cast their lot with the good people
of Morgan. Shortly after their
arrival there, her husband was
taken from her. The grief and
the lonesomeness, added to her
years of affliction, caused her to
give up and wish for an early
transport to Heaven. She died

Mr. and Mrs. Ben Buschke
were visitors in Heppner on Tues
day. Mr. Buschke has been
busy with his combine ever since
the 10th of July. He had in 2000
acres of grain this year, about
two-thirds of which was hit by
the big hail storm and cut his
yield considerably. He is mak
ing an average of 14 bushels to
the acre but should have had at
least 18 bushels.
Jake Young finished threshing
on his farm the past week the 80
acres struck earlier in the season
by the hail. It had been stated
that the grain was pretty badly
damaged perhaps 25 per cent,
but since threshing it is found
that the damage was very much
more and will be 75 per cent, at
least. Other farmers in that
section and elsewhere have doubt
less suffered in like proportion.
Judge Parker and sheriff Mon
tague, of Condon, visited Hepp
ner on Saturday in the interest
of the Tri-County Fair to be held
at Condon this Fall. These gen
tlemen were enthusiastic in be
half of the fair and are very anx
ious that Heppner and Morrow
county shall be well represented i
there. The fair comes to Mor
row county next year, if we de
sire it, and our citizens should
certainly get busy and prepare a
fine exhibit for the Condon fair.
