Marahftll Hill of Piieo, Waah., has
been spending the pait week at the
home of hii brother. W. O. Hill, in
Lexington. These gentleman were
in Heppner for ft short time on
Monday. Mr. Hill was formerly a
lesident of this county, coming bore
with his parents from Illinois in
1KK4, when a lad sixteen years of age.
In 1888 he took up railroading at
Pasco and for a great many yeara he
was an engineer running out of that
city. More recently he ha filled a
position in another department with
the railroad, and the vast several
months he has been with his mother
at Walla Walla. He is (jut fami
liar with the early history of the
Lexington country, but there was not
much of Lexington when he left
here, the town having some into ex
istence a short time beforo his de
parture. H. A. Clemens, who formerly pub
lished the Pine Valley Herald at
Halfway, Baker county, and in for
mer years was connected with both
the East Oregonian and Pendleton
Tribune In their mechanical depart
ment, is now on the Butter creek
ranch of John Kilkenny, where he
is regaining his health to some ex
tent. He is a printer and newspaper
man of wide experience. His son,
P. A. Clemens, is alBo working on a
farm near Heppner, having had to
get out into the open because of ill
health. These gentlemen like this
part of the country quite well, but
are contemplating getting back into
the newspaper game again when the
proper location is found.
H. C. Robertson, who farms quite
extensively out in the north Sand
Hollow section, was in the city Tu
esday. He states that his entire fall
seeding of bluestem failed to come,
apparently froze out, and the hybrid
is spotted. He was trying to get
seed barley to re-seed the ground.
Mr. Robertson thinks that much of
the grain was sown too deep and the
aeed rotted In the ground. He re
ports that many of his neighbors are
having to re-seed.
F. H. Wilson was here from lone
Friday. He had just arrived from
his home at Santa Ana, Calif. He
expects to remain in Morrow coun
ty for the summer, to look after his
interests here. Mr. Wilson states
that the Southern California coun
try is on the boom, this being espec
ially true of Los Angeles, near which
city Mr. Wilson has a home. Some
wonderful wells are being develop
ed In the oil fields there.
Charley Erwin and Fred Raymond
were two of the big wheat raisers
from the lone section in this city on
Saturday. The big rain held them
here pretty late, but they did not
care for this if their own part of the
county was getting a goodly share
of that portion that Heppner did
not need. Crops are coming along
fine with then gentlemen, however,
and they had no complaint to offer.
Ralph Thompson tangled up with
a barbed wire out at his Willow
creek farm Tuesday morning, re
ceiving a bad cut on his lip and
cheek that required the attention of
a physctan to stitch up. The acci
dent happened to him while he was
trying to chase a lamb into the pen,
Mr Thompson forgetting that a
strand of barbed wire was stretched
across the opening.

An Anchor to
JAILORS know the wisdom of
having an anchor to wind
ward. That precaution has
prevented many a disaster.
To have a money surplus capital in
reserve is simply throwing an anchor
to windward. It will prevent your
drifting on to the rocks of dependence
The time to build up a reserve, a safe
guard for future, is now when you are
strong and able to work and sacrifice.
You don't know about the future, but
you do know that now, today, you are
able to earn and save. Make the most
of your present opportunity and pre
