Rhea Creek People Are

A wedding that was somewhat of
a surprise to their many fiends, was
that of Miss Nettie L. Mason and
John M. Lundy, both of Rhea ereek,
which took place in Heppner on Sat
urday, January 27th, 1923. All par
ties having to do with the affair were
sworn to secrecy, and as yet this pa
per has not learned who it waa that
performed the ceremony. We pre
sume that it was the intention of the
newly weds to put one over on their
friends, get married and slip away
on the honeymoon before the fact had
become known, as they announced
they would be "at home" after Feb
ruary 1st at the farm of Mrs. Lundy
on Rhea creek. However, the mar

FOREST NEWS OF
A summary of the reports of Fred
Cakteel, Salter on the Five Mile Cat
tle and Horse range of the Umatilla
National Forest, during the past sea
son, has been prepared by Ranger
Woods. The summary shows that
1.204 head of cattle and 44 head of
hones graced on this range and that
they consumed 8,660 pounds of salt
which would be 6.K3 pounds per head,
during the five months season. The
summarv shows th.t Attrin t.,
the first month that the stock was
on the forest range, they ate 2.62
pounds of salt a Fiend In Jnlv flia
consumption of salt had dropped to
i.u pounds a nead. During August
it was only 1.28 pounds a head, and
during September 1.12 pounds a head
sufficed, and it is probable, states the
summary, that a much less amount
would have been sufficient for the ac
tual needs for the last month but
the Salter put out extra amounts to
supply the stock through October.
The services of the Salter terminat
ed September 30.
The summary concludes, "It is,
therefore, apparent that the need of
salting is greatest when the stock
first come upon the mountain range.
At this time the forage is fresh and
lacking in mineral substance. Salt
partially supplies this mineral and,
to some degree, tends to prevent
washing, or scouring."

Good telephone service depends vitally upon
care in calling telephone numbers. A wrong num
ber called causes loss of time to you, to the party
called and to the operator. Every instance means
avoidable inconvenience to all concerned.
It is not the loss of time to you alone or to the
operator that concerns us most, but it is the annoy
ance to the party called. Your mistake cannot be
explained to him, and the Telephone Company is
held responsible for your error.
Consulting the current issue of the telephone di
rectory, instead of trusting to memory; giving your
number clearly, and quickly correcting the operator
if she misunderstands your call, will greatly in
crease the efficiency of the service.
