THE GAZETTE-TIMES, HEPPNER, OREGON, THURSDAY, AUGUST 16, 1923.
Mr. and Mrs. Vawter Crawford and
MU Margaret Crawford spent Mon
day at the home of Mr. and Mr a. J.
M. Spencer on lower Butter creek.
Down that way the ranch em are all in
the midst of putting- up their second
crop of alfalfa and the big hay stacks
are getting mighty numerous. The
second crop seems to be equally as
good as the first and is yielding well.
Wheat Is rolling off the holls down to
the Kcho market road, trucks being
used largely for transportation, and
all roads leading down to Butter creek
are now badly rutted and the dust is
deep. It will be a fine thing for the
people out that direction when the
Lexington market road fs completed,
and when this happens, large quanti
ties of the grain now going out to
Echo from Morrow county will come
to Lexington, The big melon crop
is just coming on in quantity pro
duction at Irrigon, and daily ship
ment! of watermelons musk melons
and cantaloupes are being mads both
east and west from that point on the
trains, besides what is leaving there
in trucks. This crop is very fine on
the project this season and the de
mand is (rood. Coming home that way,
the editor took on a supply for home
consumption from the patches of
Messrs. Grimm and Seaman.
M r. and M rs. Albert Adkins re
turned on Sunday from their vacation.
Mrs. Adkins has been visiting for the
past month or more at the home of

kins joined her two weeks ago. They
spent the most of his vacation visit
ing at Aberdeen and Hoquim where
Albert enjoyed himself going through
the big lumber mills and other 'manu
facturing plants of Grays Harbor.
Business conditions are good over
that way. Both Harley and Ralph
Adkins reside at Aberdeen, the for
mer holding a good position with the
railroad company in the union sta
tion, and the latter working in one
of the big mills.
R, H. Baldock, divsiion engineer for

penditure of 9400,000. It is becoming
a very popular stopping place for

Chas. Thomson and family returned
home from Portland the first of the
week. Mr. Thomson was one of the
many merchants of the Northwest
taking In Buyers' Week. Just how
he could resist the temptation of
staying this week and attending the
big doings of the Dokies, is more
than we can understand.

for San Juan Island. Wash., Monday,
to join Mrs. Livingstone and Miss Lois
who have been there for several

N. Co. at Portland, took a short lay
off the first of last week and spent

come. Mr. and Mrs. C. L. Keithley of Pen

Why the Good Old
Remington Pump Gun Still Outsells all Others
There's a new 20gauge model, too the best
of the lighugauge guns See it at your dealer's
A SK any of your friends who shoot a
XX Remington 12 -gauge Pump Gun
there are lots of them what it is that
has made this the favorite 12-gauge
ever since Remington brought it out in
1900 the irsf solid-breech hammer
less repeating shotgun ever produced.
Or better yet if he'll let you bor
row his Model 10 and take it out in the
fields or down by the water for an after
noon and try it for yourself.
Fire arms experts always comment on
the precision and finish of the Model 10
the result of 245 separate inspections
in the Remington plant.
And they remark that the receiver is
machined out of solid steel instead
of made of stamped steel metal or a
cored casting as is done with many shot
guns. But the man who goes out for a day's
sport or to get a few ducks or rabbits for
supper isn't so apt to say anything
about these technical features.
He'll tell you that the Remington
Model 10 shoots harder and straight
er than any other 12-gauge he ever had
in his hands, has an action that never
balks or clogs and seems to get better
the longer he uses it.
If you're in line for something
specially good in a 20-gauge
Get your dealer to show you the new
Remington Model 17. This is a ham
merless, solid-breech pump action, too.
Chambered for inch shells which
gives it the power and range of a 16
gauge. It is comparatively new but
already many old-timers swear by it as
a "real man's gun."
The first time you get a chance go to
the gun rack at the store and look at
these Remingtons. Your dealer will be
glad to tell you anything you want to
know about them.
