Committee From Boost Club
Is Appointed to Solicit The
Funds and Prizes.
The Booster Club held an in
teresting meeting on Friday eve
ning last. There were a lot of
questions coming up.for attention,
and some of these received prop
er notice. One of the chief mat
ters of discussion was the coming
school fair for Morrow county,
and the steps to get this under
headway were taken by the ap
pointment of a committee to so
licit funds and prizes. M. D.
Clark and Vawter Crawford were
appointed for Heppner, W. G.
Scott, Lexington, Paul G. Balsig
er, lone, and Prof. Allen, Hard
man. This committee is to get
busy at once and parties named
for the different towns will look
after their own localities. It is de
sired to get the initial work done
at once, the prizes arranged just
as soon as posible, so that a date
can be set on which to hold the
fair. This date should be announ
ced by the coming week and it
shouM be just as early ws possible

Riding bucking broncos is hardly des

it is enjoyment in the superlative
form. Where other women prefer to
sit at a rudder of bridge, she choies

Tillie Baldwin contrary to the nat

Pendleton, Ore. Sept 17 The only
genuine long horn Texas steeri iu the
northwest have just been received in
Fendleton as a part of the stock in
trade of the ronnd-np. They are
beonliarly adapted for the steer rop
ing and bulldogging contests, being
long of horn, lithe of body lean of
flank, fleet of foot and uncertain of
temper. Heretofore Oreson steers
hare been used in these contents but
have proven to be too heavy and slow
to permit oi the maximum of excite
ment, hence the Round-up associa
tion imported twenty-five head of the
kind which put cowboy skill to the
real test. So long are they are they
of horn that they could scarcely pass
throngh an ordinary stock chnte and
so wild that it is dangerous to get
within reach of them. Just before
loading there for their long journey
over the rails, one of them gored a
hors to death and when being trans
feree to Pasoo the same animal chased
the cowboys out of the corrals fonr
times before the job was accomplished.
The Irrigon Tract Sold.
The town of Irrigon and 29 ,000 acre
land was sold last week to satisfy a
judgment of $560,302 with accrued ia
terest and Court exp'enses. This soit
was brought by R. S. Howard Jr. , re
ceiver of the Tittle Guarantee arxi
Trust Company of Portland. Thia in
stitution failed a few years ago and ono
of its heaviest assets was a loan to the -Orecron
Land and Water Co. , promoters
of the Irrigon project. For five year,
rast the residents at Irrigon have beeiv
held np and unable to make any im
provements because of the nncertainty
as to the outcome of this suit. It isu
now expected that this sale will bave--
the effect of quieting title and;
