Big Oregon Trail Edition
Bruce Dennis, editor of the La
Grande Observer did himself proud
by getting out a big Oregon Trail
edition under date of Snturday, .May
26. This is an unusual stunt for
Dennis as he is not much given to
special editions, hut the occasion of

effort, and this the Observer did In
a splendid manner with a 62-page

writeups and illustrations of the scen
ic beauties of the Blue Mountain sec
tion, giving special preference to
Union, Baker and Waliowa counties,
and not overlooking the extensive re
sources of this district. Krom a me
chanical standpoint the edition Is al
so of a high class, and showe what
can be accomplished in the splendid

BOUNTY IS CUT OFF
BY COUNTY COURT
By action of the county court yes
terday, the bounty on predatory ani
mals was declared off, and from this
on, unless they see fit to return again
to the old system, the county will
cooperate with the state and the U.
S. biological survey in carrying on
The state repealed the bounty law
at the last session of the legislature,
and it was left to the counties to do
as they wished in this regard. As all
the counties adjoining Morrow have
taken off the bounty, and this has
left our commissioners nothing else
Elmer Williams, who is connected
with the predatory animal depart
ment of the government biological
survey, was here the first of the week,
and in consultation with members
of the court, it was shown that by
cooperating with the government in
their work of eradication of coyotes
and other predatory animals, the
work can be carried on satisfactorily,
and the contract between the county
and the government will be so chang
ed as to allow this. In this work,
by the county putting up a certain
sum, it will also be matched by the
state and government.

HIS IT IDE
Nature's Providence Big
in Material Man Has
MAKES GOOD ROADS
Largest Crusher Ever Operated in
County Being Used by State
up Hintun Cffcek
Nature Is a grand provider. Even
in Morrow county where the many
cliffs of rock seem to be an eyesore
Nature has not been so very unkind
in her providence. Man in his course
of progress has found necessary a
faster and better means of transport
ation. Thus came the many gas driv
en vehicles which crowd the high
ways of the world. But the vehicles
alone did not suffice. Firm, smooth
roadways in turn became necessary
before they could be successfully op
erated. Many kinds of roads have
been made, but undoubtedly the best
for the money is the macadam, or
crushed rock roadbed. According to
experts the rock of Morrow county
is the best material obtainable for
macadamized roads. Man in Morrow
county is now making use of Nature's
bounties in the road program which
it has become imperative for him to
follow to keep up with the procession.
It is a grand and somewhat awe
inspiring sight to witness the ma
chinery at work near the Matlock
ranch up Hinton creek, literally tear
ing a hill to pieces, breaking up the
rock to feed through the crusher.
Two monster engines work side by
side, to turn the wheels of the Jarg
est crusher ever operated in the coun
ty which grinds up the rock as if
it were so much popcorn, as well as
to pull the big shovel back and forth
on a cable to feed the ever-hungry
gullet of the giant rock glutton. From
the crusher the rock is hoisted by a
cup-belt to the top of the bunkers
into a double perforated cylinder
which sorts it into coarse and fine
grades, each grade falling into a
separate compartment in the bunk
ers. Huge trucks with dump bodies
drive under the bunkers and are
loaded through a trap-door.
It is planned to keep the crusher
in operation day and night till en
ough material has been provided to
cover the 12-mile stretch which will
connect up the Heppner macadam
with that of Jones Hill. A full crew
is now at the work being carried
on by the state and it will .be pushed
at top speed. The job is a big one,
however, and it Is expected to be
close to the first of November be
fore it is finished.

High Class Performance of Musical and Artistic Worth Promised Patrons of

Here's a "different" program by an altogether "different" company. Instead of the usual girl entertainment
group, so common in Chautauqua, you wfll have an opportunity to enjoy a real red-blooded "man" company when
the Patton Brothers come to town. The boysall brothers are full of "pep" and enthusiasm, and their program,
all written in musical form, consists of iRpecially costumed "episodes," No expense has been spared in costuming
and providing special scenic effects. The result is a high-class performance of musical and artistic worth lack
ing only in the cheap "jazz" element, bo common In entertainment nowadays. And yet it is a program of ral "punch"
a personality program, if you will, for the work of each of these young artists stands out in bold relief. They
will give two programs on the opening day of Chautauqua.

Farmers, Specialists and Business
Men to Consider Farm Produc
tion and Marketing
An agricultural program for Ore
gon with due regard to farm produc
tion and marketing has been announ
ced for the fourth week in January
next, at the agricultural college.
Leaders of farmers organizations, re
search and business men will take
part in shaping up the program.
The two problems of producing and
marketing are so closely linked that
neither can be solved successfully
without regard to the other, the com
mittee in charge finds. This relation
ship as applied to the potato is point
ed out that unless due weight is
given selection of seed and soils for
growing the tuber no proper grading
and packing for economic marketing
is possible later.
Organization will be on commodity
lines. Delegates interested primar
ily in fruit will form one division and
work to draw up a program that will
become one section of the state ag
ricultural program. Livestock, farm
crops and dairy groups and others
will act on similar lines, with special
sections on agricultural credits and
The weakest links of the state-wide
agricultural chain will be pointed out

The annual trip of the wheat grow
era of Morrow county to the experi
ment station at Moro will take place
this year on the 15th, 16th and 17th
of this month. The importance of the
work of thii station on the yield and
quality of wheat grown in this sec
tion cannot be over estimated and
the farmers who will make this trip
will have the opportunity of getting
first hand results of the experimental
work now going on at this station.
Among the many experimental plots
to be seen are the ones showing the
influence of time of plowing on the
yield. Plots plowed April 1st, May
1st and June 1st are being given
eight different methods of handling
through the summer and the results
obtained show very plainly the neces
sity for early plowing and clean cul
tivation. Some of the most interest
ing of the plots which will be seen
are those comparing the various
treatment tests and those showing
the smut resistant wheat. Several of
the latter have been developed and it
is hoped that they will be ready for
distribution in the next year or two.
Some of these wheats appear to be
totally immune from smut and should
the yields from these be satisfactory
they will probably be the leading var
ieties for the state in a short time.
Those making the trip will leave
from Heppner June 15 at & a. m.f
leave Lexington at 9:45 and lone at
10:30. A stop will be made at Ar
lington for dinner and the party will
arrive at Moro in time to visit some
of the fields in that vicinity that eve
ning. Saturday will be spent at the
Moro experiment station and the re
turn to Morrow county will be made
on the 17th. All who will be able to
make the trip are urged to notify the
county agent so that arrangements
regarding accommodations en route
and at Moro can be made.

sions and Bible schools and Endeav
or societies. The sessions of the
convention will be open at all times
to the public of Heppner, and it is
hoped that the people of the com
munity will take advantage of the op
portunity offered to hear the splen
did addresses that will be given by
the talent on the program.
The homes of Heppner have been
opened to the entertainment of the
visitors, and there will be nothing
lacking in hospitality on the part of
the people of the city. One feature
of entertainment planned will be a
trip for the delegates coming from
outside Morrow county, over the
wheat growing section that they may
understand somewhat the resources
we have here. This is planned on the
part of the commercial club, and suf
ficient automobiles will be supplied
for the purpose, and on reaching lone
entertainment will be provided there
in the way of a luncheon, served by
the church at least this is the pre
sent arrangement, and the details
will be fully worked out in time.
