A hot game of bull Is promised
the fans at Gentry field on Sunday
afternoon, when the irrtgationtsts
from down Boardman way will be
here to content for honors against
the local ball tossers. The Board
man team will doubtless be accom
panied by a large number of boosters
from that town, who feel that this
season they have a team that is go
ing to be a winner, and one that has
so far shown themselves to be up
and coming, and they will try hard
to annex another victory.
Heppner, also, has a good team to
pit against Boardman Fur day, and
Manager Van Marter will endeavor
very strenuously to prevent the visit
ors getting the long end of the
score. His team is to be strength
ened by consistent practice, and the
addition of Gay M. Anderson, who
was on the sick list .hen the first
grime was played, will riein that the
visitors are going to met stubborn
This game gives promiae of being
a good one. Boardman has gone up
against lone in two games already,
winning one and losing one, but they
are capable of playing fine ball.
The Heppner fans should give the
locals rousing good support, as this
will encourage the development of
a strong bunch of players here this
season that can be expected to get
their portion of the games they go

By F. E. PRICE, County Agent.
Rumors have been going about In
some parts of the county that hosrt
are dying from hog cholera. One
of these cases was investigated by
the County Agent but no positive
proof of hog cholera could be found
The hogs might have had hog cholera
but the ea was not reported soon
enough to hold a post mortem and
decide whether or not the hogs-died
of hog cholera. Every farmer of Mor
row County is certainly interested
in keeping down the losses from hog
cholera to a minimum. According
to Government statistics the losses
from hog cholera in Oregon each
year is between four and nine thous
and hogs. Hog cholera is the most
furious disease of hogs. Anyone
knowing of cases that giva indica
tions of being hog cholera should
report them promptly to the County
Agent, This will enable control
measures to be adopted at once if
the disease is present. The bureau
of Animal Industry has made a study
of the disease and finally developed
an anti-hog cholera serum which la
the only known reliable preventative
agent. By treatment according to
this simultaneous inoculation method
or the double treatment method, as
it is often called, hogs can be perm
anently immune from the disease.
Fred McMurray, H. G. Rankin, and
J. Pettys of lone had their hogs vac
cinated according to this treatment
last week. No hogs have been lost
on any of these ranches but it was
thought that there might be some
hog cholera in the vicinity as there
had been some losses near by. There
are several cases of hog cholera in
Wasco county at the present time
according to Mr. Derflinger of the
State Veterinary office. No ewes
are known in Morrow county. Let as
all keep on the look-out and keep
it out of Morrow county.

Marty of Jacob Marty & Son. whole-
sale cheesedealers of Portland, was
in Boardman last Friday and went
over the project to interview the lo
cal dairymen and on Saturday met
with the ranchers to pot before them
the proposition of starting a cheese
factory here. If the milk from 75
or 80 cows la assured Mr. Mart will
establish the factory.
C. G. Blayden tells us ha bss
signed op 60 for sure and has 80

Portland prices for butterfat will
be paid and five cents additional for
skimmed milk . A charge of 15 cents
HI be made for collecting milk.
An option has been taken on the
Harry Murchie building.
Mr. Marty agrees to install a
churn if the factory is started so
enough butter may be made to sup
ply local demand.
The petition was sent to Portland
Wednesday. Boardman Mirror.
