Father and Son Meeting on Monday
Night Well Attended. Boy Scout
Out In Force and Have Part In Pro
gram. C. E. Wood Hon Speaker.
The regular monthly meeting of the
Brotherhood fell thin time on the
birthday of Abraham Lincoln, Amer
ica's great emancipator and foremost
citizen, and the program was arrang
ed in accordance therewith. This
being at least the case regarding the
subject for discussion. It was also
the night for the fathers to bring
their sons, or some other boy or boys
to join with them in the entertain
ment, and the Boy Scouts were in
vited to come as a troop, to which
they responded practically unani
mously, a few only being absent, and
these being retained at home because
of sickness or some other legal ex
cuse, and the boys and men made up
a company of sixty-five that sat down
to the luncheon.
The first number on the program
was a reading by Miss Margaret
Brown, and she responded to a hearty
encore, which showed the apprecia
tion of her fine elocutionary powers.
Following this, W. 0. Livingstone in
troduced Boy Scout Troop No. 1 of
Heppner with a short speech, in
which he set out the objects and
aims of the organization, and force
fully refuted the impression that the
Boy Scouts are a military organiza
tion in any sense, tho they have rules
of discipline. He then put the troop
through some of their stunts and the
company was well entertained for
several moments, the boys finishing
with the song, "Where the West Be
gins." G. . Woodson was the principal
speaker of the evening and intro
duced the subject: "Abraham Lin
coln." The speaker went over in
quite a complete manner thai por
tion of the life of the martyred' pres
ident having to do with his career as
a public man, and which proved him
to be in the end the greatest Ameri
can. He read Mr. Lincoln's own bio
graphical sketch, which was suffi
cient to show the lowly origin of the
man, and did not dwell farther on
this. The life of Lincoln is always
an interesting study, and Mr. Wood
son presented it in an unusually in
teresting manner on this occasion.
He was followed by a number of
others who took up different inci
dents and phases of the life of the
emancipator that appealed to them,
these being W. 0. Livingstone, J. B,
L. Hastam, S. E. Notson, K. W. Tur
ner, Keid Buseick, J. P. Condor, G.
Franzen and A. M. Phelps.
The next meeting of the Brother
hood will be on Monday, March 12,
and the subject is "Heppner's Heri
tage." President Waters appointed
A. S. Akers and W. W. Smeed com
mittee on arrangements.
Heppner Country Gets
Big Snow With Cold
Snow to the depth of at least fif
teen niches covers all the Heppner
country, and it reaches over the en
tire county. The storm set in on
Sunday and continued over Monday
and Monday night, and since abating
the thermometer has gradually ap
proached the sero mark until last
night it registered six degrees be
low here. Over much of the county
the snow has drifted pretty badly
and the roads leading in from var
ious localities are blocked more or
less and travel is abandoned. The
Willow creek highway has been kept
open, however, and the stage is mak
ing its regular trips, though having
to dig through a gooo many drifts.
The open spell In January was a
fct-eat saver of feed for the stockmen
and they will all weather the present
spill in good shape, providing it does
not last too long. In seme localities
down the creek early lambing is un
der way and for the sake of these we
shall hope that the cold spell will
break soon. After the snow leaves
there will be good fee 4 on the hills
atn and the f.ockmasters will not
be called upon to suffer any losses.

CAR IS STRANDED
IN BIG SNOW DRIFT
Mr. and Mrs. B. H. Finch and Mr.
and Mrs. Delbert Clabough visited at
the home of Mr. and Mrs. Garnet
Burratt east of Sand Hollow on Sun
day When they left town in the new
car of Mr. Finch it was snowing but
the storm was not so severe as to
interfere with their making the trip
out to the Barratt ranch in good
shape. When ready to return home,
however, they thought they would
cross over Sand Hollow and come
back to Heppner by way of Lexing
ton. As they proceeded on their way
across the hills, the storm grew more
severe, and finally they landed up in
a big drift and the car refused to
It was necessary to abandon the ve
hicle and look for shelter in some
nearby farm residence, but nothing
was in sight, and ft took several hours
wandering and miles of travel before
they came to the home of Carl Mil
ler, where they were made comfort
able for the night. Both Mrs. Finch
and Mrs. Clabough had their small
babies with them, and it was found
to be no small chore getting through
the drffts with the little oneB.
They managed to get back to Hepp
ner late on Monday afternoon, and
since then Mr Finch has tried to get
out to where the car was left that
he might bring it In, but in this he
has failed, and it still stands buried
in the snow drift. The weather had
not turned very cold at the time of
the tie-up and the people were for
tunate enough to get through without
any great suffering.
Bordeaux Best Moss Control.
Moss and lichens on fruit trees
may be quickly destroyed during the
winter by spraying with ordinary lye
at the rate of 1 pound to 6 or 8 gal
Ions of water. If San Jose or other
scale is present add the lye dissolved
in a little water to the usual winter
strength lime-sulftfr. Thorough
spraying of this solution will remove
both the moss and Bcate. Lye re
moves the moss rapidly but not per
manently. For permanent preven
tion the 0. A. C Experiment Station
recommends the usual Bordeaux
spray. Applied for apple tree an
thracnose, peach leaf curl, and prune
and cherry blossom blight it will pre
vent the moss from developing.

Young Fruit Trees Die
From Attack of Borers
Thousands of young fruit trees,
planted last spring, were killed dur
ing the summer by attcks of borers,
says A. L, Lovett, chief In entomol
ogy at Oregon Experiment Station.
This largo loss was sustained in spite
of the fact that borers may success
fully attack only unthrifty, poorly
growing trees. The excessive drought
conditions of last summer, caused a
severe drain on the vitnlity of the
trees, particularly those young trees
which had had insufficient time to de
velop a good root system.
Two methods of preventing borers
from attacking the trees are suggest
ed by Mr. Lovett. The placing of a
barrel stave, or similar shield on the
southwest aide of the tree to cast a
shawod on the trunk is one method.
This prevents sun scald of the bark
which attract borer attacks.
A good whitewash is also a protec
tion against attacks of boring insects.
One of the most successful receipts
for making whitewash Is eight pounds
of quick lime, one-half pound of glue
or casein (powdered), one-fourth
pound of copper-sulphate, and one
pound of flaked napthnline, with
enough water to make a whitewash
about tho consistency of paint, Car
bolic acid at the rate of one-half pint
to eight gallons of whitewash may
Ue substituted for the napthaline,

evening from his trip through Cali

race horses. He was accompanied by
Mrs. Swaggart who remained in Port

Mr. Swaggart states that he en

pretty tough weather conditions at
most of the places he visited. This
was especially true of the little Mex

UNEARTHED IN EGYPT
Opening of Tomb of Tutankhamen
ranks Among Moat Astounding Rev
elations of Archaeology. Undistin
guished Pharos h Gets Limelight
University of Oregon, Eugene, Feb.
14. The opening of the tomb of Tu
tankhamen, involving as it does the
discovery of the most brilliant collec
tion of funeral equipment yet found
in the hidden crypts of the Pharoahs,
ranks among the most astounding
revelations in the annals of archaeol
ogy, declared Prof. F. S. Dunn, pro
fessor of Latin in the University of
Oregon, who delivered a lecture re
cently on Tutankhamen Lives Again.
The lecture was delivered over the
radio and was heard by hundreds of
Pacific Coast radio fans.
"The magic spell of Egypt ha once
again been cast over the wor!d. We
are momently awaiting the thrill that
will attend the opening of thit sealed
rock chamber where presumably Ues
Piir.roah Tutankhamen," said Pnf.
Di.nn. "When the funeral cortege
passed out of Thebes and across the
Nile, bearing the dead Pharoah to his
catacomb, how strange a fantasy it
would have been to any one in that
piocession that a company of arch
aeologists, 3000 years later, would
stumble upon the hidden crypt and
reintroduce the mummied monarch to
an astonished world. And could any
thing now be more wierd than to
await the coming forth from his tomb
of an autocrat who wore the double
crown of Egypt far back in the 1300's
"A remarkable fate' has befallen a
relatively unimportant Pharoah, in
that the discovery of his tomb early
in last November and the opening of
the antechamber, some three weeks
later, disclosing almost complete fu
neral paraphernalia to the probable
value of half a hundred million dol
lars, rank among the most astound
ing revelations in the annals of ar
chaeology. Tutankhamen himself,
though far excelled in fame by the
Pyramid Builders and such heroic
personalities as SesostrisThutmose,
Amenhotep, or Ramesea, has survived
3000 posthumous years, suddenly to
become an international figure.
"In his own day and in hia own
place in the accepted chronology as
king of the 18th dynasty, Tutankha
men can not be credited with having
been a conspicuous success. History
knows him as the illegitimate son of
Amenhotep the Magnificent, and as
successor, after a short interval, of
the heretic and mystic Akhenaton,
whose ecn-in-law he vas) His short
reign of eight years was a troublous
era of vacillation and decadence.
Feeling under the domination of the
priesthood, he was induced to restore
the old worship which Akhenaton had
striven so gloriously to refine and re
form; and incidentally removed the
capital back to Thebes. By far the
most interesting item connected with
his name and reign is the suggestion
recently advanced by Arthur Weigal
that Tutankhamen and not Rameses
II is the real Pharoah of the Oppres
sion who taught the children of Is
rael to make brick without straw.
"Numerous monuments bear wit
ness to his name, for instance a lion
of red granite now in the British
museum which shows the cartouche
and royal signature of Tutankhamen;
a letter on clay and in cuneiform ad
dressed to him while still a courtier,
and discovered at Tell-el-Amama.
Then there are the frescoed walls
of the tomb of his Ethiopian viceroy
Huy, which depict Tutankhamen on
his throne and receiving both his
governor's report and embassies of
tributary peoples. And the marvel
ous ruins of Luxor are the most su
perb by reason of Tutankhamen's
great colonnade on which are sculp
tured the scenes of his triumphant
reception in Thebes, the most preten
tious structure erected by any Phar
oah up to that .time.
"The practice of burial in pyra
mids had long since been abandoned
by the Pharoahs and now the deso
late chalk cliff walls on the west of
the Nile had been preempted by the
royal line and honeycombed with
tombs in maze-like chambers exca
vated in the rock. And here it was
that Tutankhamen eventually came
to join his fathers. Re'iiarkably good
fortune has attended the search for
these tombs in the Valley of Kings
and tourists today may look upon the
mummies of some of the most famous
of the Pharoahs now lying in state
in the museum at Gizeh."
A short time ago Dr. Philip A.
Parsons, director of the School of
Social Work of the University of
Oregon, delivered a radio lecture on
"Prison Reform in the U. S.'' Let

is in favor of it. If, however, the
biological department of the govern
ment attempts to kill off the coyote
with the scattering of poison it will
kill off nearly all the fur bearing ani
mals of the state. There are some
thing like 4000 trappers in Oregon
and the fur industry resulted in
bringing thousands of dollalrs into
the several counties. Mr. Hosier has
trapped for the last 39 winters and
he says that he has experienced some
things that are not written in the
books and if he should say that it has
been the poison scattered on the
ranges that has been responsible for
rabies a lot of professors would deny
it. And yet he has seen it. He has
poisoned coyotes that did not get
enough to kill thorn but they devel
oped all the symptoms of rabies. It
started in Montana when the govern
ment began to put out poison for the
wolves and then the rabies broke out.
Scattering poison on the ranges may
be all right, but there are some con
sequences to pay if his observations
of nearly 40 years trapping amount

Mr. McMenamin Closes
His Office In Heppner
Attorney F. A. McMenamin came
up from Portland on "Monday and dur
ing the week he packed up his books
and office furniture and the same
have been shipped to Portland, Mr.
McMenamin having closed up his of
fice in this city.
Mr. McMenamin has formed a part
nership with Thos. Mannix of Port
land, and they have their offices in the
Yeon building in that city. R. M.
Andrews, who has been in charge of
the office here for several months,
will go to Portrland, and with A. L.
Frison will be in the employ of the
firm of Mannix & McMenamin.
Frank states that he has purchased
a home in Rose City Park and is quite
nicely located. Business conditions
ar very good in the city, especially
in the lumbering and allied industries
and there is much activity in real
estate circles. He expects to look
after business in Heppner personally
in the future.
Flurry in Market.
L. A. Hunt, of Hermiston. manager
of the Oregon Co-operative Hay
Growers Association, states that hay
is now being shipped from the Her
miston section to the Seattle market
and western hay dealers are already
considering the importation of Cali
fornia hay. He says that some time
ago the fear was expressed that un
less most favorable weather condi
tions should continue until Spring
the Northwest-would face a real hay
shortage." The storm of December,
according to Mr. Hunt, and cold
weather following bring the prophecy
near t6 realization. He says that
there would be enough hay to last
Oregon feeders if it were not for the
demand for Oregon hay in Washing
ton. The Yakima valley is rapidly
cleaning up and some dealers have
expressed the opinion that there will
not be sufficient hay to last more than
another four weeks. Dealers, says
Mr. Hunt, are now offering farmers
$20 at country points, with but little
hay to be had. Even with the most
favorable weather conditions from
now until spring, there will not be
enough hay in the Northwest to meet
the demand, says Mr. Hunt, and it is
probable that the only limit set to
prices will be that fixed by the Cali
fornia market Pendleton E. O.

Makes Nice Display of Meat.
The Central Market made a nice
display of meats on Monday evening
when they hung up 35 head of dressed
porkers and several prime beeves.
Grover Swaggart, the new proprietor,
is taking a lot of pride in the shop
and in the appearance of the meats
he hangs up, and he invites the pub
lic of Heppner to visit any part of
the plant at any time. He contem
plates a number of improvements that
will be made in a short time.
Says Proposed Change
In Road Law Premature
Commissioner Barratt got home on
Sunday from Portland and Salem.
He had been away attending the
monthly meeting of the State High
way commission, and was also call
to Salem with the other members of
that body to hold consultation with
legislative committees over proposed
laws touching the state highways.
The bill in which they were the
most vitally interested, known as the
Graham measure, providing for the
reissuance of state highway road
bonds to be used for the construction
of primary market roads, had been
through committee, recommended for
passage and had passed the house.
This bill is opposed by the commis
sion, not because they believe H to
be a bad measure, but on the ground
that it is not yet the proper time to
handle the hig'...y bonds in this
manner. Upon the completion of the
program as now settled, Mr. Barratt
thinks a measure of this kind will be
in order. It is sponsored by the peo
ple of the Willamette valley, whoe
primary roads are now completed,
and they are anxious to get their
fingers on the money to finish their
feeder roads. This does not apply
to the situation in the Eastern Oregon
and coast counties, and the commis
sion are opposed to the bill for the
reason that its provisions would
work an injustice to these sections
of the state Mr. Barratt is of the
opinion that the measure will meet
with defeat in the senate, and the
governor has stated that if it should
pass he will veto the bill for the rea
sons as stated.
The other bill, that of a paid high
way commission, was killed when
called up for a vote in the houie.
Lowell McMillan returned from
Portland on Monday evening. He went
to the city to get him a car, and
drove home in a new Ford coupe.
Some of the driving was not of the
beat, either, but he got here after ex
periencing some delay on the way.
