Subscription $2.00 Ter Year E 2- I Horseshoe Contest, Ball Games and Patriotic Program Features. MERCURY AT HEIGHT Sweltering Heat Keeps People Away and Crowds Not as Large aa Anticipated. Though the crowd wai not as large as expected, Heppner's two-day cele bration the third and fourth of July helped liven the town considerably and those who attended enjoyed them selves. That is they enjoyed them selves about ai much as could be ex pected considering the sweltering heat that prevailed both days. A large number of events had not been planned for, a ball game each afternoon between Condon and Hepp ner, a horseshoe tournament the morning of the third, and a patriotic program in the chautauqua tent the morning of the fourth being the main events. A part of the time the morn ing of the fourth was also taken up with races, which proved an attarct Jve feature. Rivalry was keen between the barn yard quoit artists, and a large num ber were present to take part in the tournament, while still more were there to see how it was done. Twelve teams of two men each opened the events on the six courts prepared for the pitching between the Tum-A-Lum Lumber company yard and the fair pavilion. One game was played in tha elimination contest. The winners in this then mixed, leaving three teams to play off "the rub.' The three teams were Harry and Leslie Ball, Oscur Keithley and Charley Hemrich, and Charles Notaon and Jasper Craw ford. The Ball brothers won the tournament with Notson and Craw ford placing second. Condon carried off the honors in the ball games both days. The Condon band arrived the morn ing of the fourth and helped move things along on the natal day. They played several pieces on the street and then marched to the big tent where they took part in the patriotic program. The Kev. W. W. Head of lone wus orator of the day, and de livered a heart-stirring discourse on the importance and meaning of the Fourth of July. Two numbers by the Condon band, invocation by the Rev. W. O. Livingstone, singing of Ameri ca, and reading of the Declaration of Independence by Miss Bernice Wood son tilled out the program. Fred Roberts, Heppner's baseball pitcher, carried off the honor of be ing the fastest runner in town on the Fourth, winning the 100-yard dash in a hotly contented field. Loyal Parker placed second in this event. Other races were a three-legged race, pota to race and sack race. The chautauqua programs each af ternoon and evening drew a large at tendance, and proved a helpful fea ture in showing visitors a good time. There was also a dance each evening in the fair pavilion and a very large number found diversion by swinging partners to music played by the Con don orchestra. Fred Blahm Dies as Re sult of Bursted Appendix , Fred Blahm, eldest son of Mr. and Mrs. Adam Blahm who farm north west of Heppner, died at the Heppner Surgical hospital in this city Monday morning. Fred had been suffering for some time from a pain in his side, and it was decided the trouble was appendicitis. The surgeon's knife re vealed that his appendix, which was found to be unnaturally located, had burst and formed an abdominal ab scess. The abscess was drained and the patient put to bed, but he died without recovering from the anaes thetic. An autopsy revealed a bursted vein in the vicinity was the immedi ate cause of death, the hemorrhage occuring after the boy had been put to bed. Fred Blahm was aged 18 years and 29 days, having been born June 8, l'JOO, and died July 6, 1924. He was just reaching maturity and was a helpful companion and assistant to his father. He was well beloved by all who knew him, and his death came as a shock to the family and friends. Funeral services were held Tues day afternoon at 2 o'clock from the Methodist Community church, the Rev. F. R. Spaulding, pastor, officiat ing. Interment was in Masonic cem etery.

HEPPNER RODEO DATES ARE SET FOR SEPT. 25-6-7 Last Year's Committee Is Again In Charge and Pushing Preparations. A better show than ever is prom ised at the Heppner Rodeo this year, the dates for which were set for September 26-26-27 at the council meeting Monday evening. The per formance Is in charge of the name committee as last year, Chas. Lat ourell, V, Gentry and C. W. McNamer, which guarantees that everything will be done to assure its success. Mr. McNamer was at Ukiah for the three-day celebration and while there arranged to bring their bucking string to the rodeo, which, combined with the local string ha declares will provide twenty of the best buckers ever seen here. With this bunch of outlaws as a foundation Mr. McNa mer believes the committee will have no trouble in filling in the best pro gram ever. Many new events will be on the card this year, in the form of a pony express race, Indian races and other events that it is believed wilt prove attractive features. Mr. Latourell has charge of the amusement fea tures to till in the spare moments and promises that visitors will have plenty to occupy every minute of their time at the three-day, real wild west celebration. "The show is going to be a dandy this year," said McNamer emphat ically, "and its going over strong. We are going to make it so good no one can afford to stay away." All stock will be brought to Hepp ner by the middle of August and put in first class condition. The grounds and every other part of the rodeo will be looked after with like care, and no details will be overlooked, Mr, McNamer declared. U The annual Morrow county picnic was held in Portland, Sunday, July 8th at Laurelhurst Park, at which were present about fifty former Mor row county residents. At 2:30 p. m. the feast which had been prepared by the former Morrow county expert cooks was spread and everyone fell to with a gusto and did justice to a wonderful meal, for there was plenty for everyone with a lot to spare. Excellent coffee and iced tea were served by Mrs. W. B. Potter who has a beautiful 'home overlooking the park. After everyone had eaten their fill the meeting proceeded to the usual order of business. The "Ode" that had been written by one of the mem bers of the association and dedicated to the former Morrow county resi dents, was sung by the gathering, after which the minutes of the last meeting were read. Then came the election of officers for the ensuing year. N. C, Maris was chosen presi dent, J. W. Beckett treasurer and Gus. Mallory secretary. The chair was then turned over to Mr. Maris by George Horseman, the former president, and the gathering listened to a short address by Milton A. Miller, former collector of Inter nal Revenue of the Portland district, and also to some reminiscences by John Galloway who was the oldest member of the association present. The business meeting then adjourn ed to meet again next year at the same place, Laurolhurat Park, on the 4th of July, the dinner to be spread at 6 o'clock p. m. One of the most enjoyable features of these meetings was sadly lacking this year, the reading of communica tions from both present and former Morrow county residents who are un able to be present. These communi cations are read at the meetings of the association nnd atu very murh enjoyed by every one. There was only one such this year but it would surely be appreciated by every one if there were a large number to be read at the meeting next year. After a short time spent in sum! intercourse the meeting broke up with everyone feeling well repaid for the time spent in preparing for and attending this, the HHh annual Mor row county picnic.

ID FAST GAMES Visitors Win One In 8th and One In 9th Frame on July 3rd and 4th AIKEN, KING STAR Local Right Fielder Grabs Six Taugb One on 4th, While Chappie Steals Home Twlc. By showing her ability to get hits when most needed, Condon edged Heppner out of both games the third and fourth of July, winning the game on the third In the eighth Inning and the one the fourth in the ninth. Heppner had a clean lead of two scores up to the eighth Inning on the third, and led her opponents by one score up to the ninth frame the fol lowing day. The weather was ex ceedingly warm both days, the mer cury being right at its highest point for the season. Though the attend ance was slim the third, interest in creased on the fourth and the stands were packed with the largest crowd in attendance at a game this season. In consequence of the Condon band and a large number of fans from the Wheat City being present the specta tors had a lively time among them selves. Condon took the lead with one score in the initial Inning on the third. Things were then nip and tuck till the fifth frame when Hepp ner scored twice, and added to her lead with one run in the seventh. This encouraging lead led the locals to believe they had won a ball game. But this was not to be for In the eighth Condon had her inning, tally ing five counters and thereby taking the lead by three scores. A last at tempt by the locals to score proved futile and the game ended, 7-6 in favor of the visitors. There was litlte difference in the pitching department of the two teams Clow for Condon and Roberts for Heppner both holding opposing bat ters to few hits. Each team got one not-earned run. While Condon got four fair blows to Heppner's five, they were fortunate in grouping their hits at a time that counted, and thus with three of them in the eighth com bined wih two passed batters and an error by Conley at short, they were netted the game. There were more thrills in the game the second day. After Condon had taken the count the first time at bat without scoring, the locals came to bat apd batted clear around, run ning in four scores. Four passed bat ters, two hits and an error by Ortman at short were responsible. Chances looked favorable for more scores as the bases were loaded when the last out was made. This was the only real blow-up inning of the game, tho errors were more prevalent than the previous day. Another score was made by the locals in the fourth frame when Brown singled and scor ed on a two-bag blow by Drake. But "Chappie" King entertained the fans most of all by working the squeeze play and stealing home twice, once in the fifth and once in the seventh inning, Heppner would have scored neither of these times had it not been for Chappie's base running ability. Heppner thus piled up seven scores and with one run lead when Condon came to bat in the ninth they felt confident of victory. But Condon again showed the ability of getting hits when needed, as she did the day before, two of them being sufficient combined with a passed batter and an error by Moore on third, to score the two tallies necessary to take the lead, having previously scored one run in the fourth, three in the sixth and two in the seventh. The final score showed 8-7. The stellar fielding of Paul Aiken, covering the right corner of the lot for the locals furnished many thrills for the fans. He grabbed three high ones out of the ether on the third and six on the fourth, many of them being very hard chances. Van M ar te r also did good work in center field for the locals, catching four fly balls. High batting honors go to Drake, who clouted three hits in four times to the bat the second day.

Glass cock, wife and stepdaughter, Temple Goetchius, Portland; Roy Glasscock and son Edward of Mt. Vernon, Ore.; Mrs. O. G. Boyd and children, Elwyn Shipley of Bingen, Wash., Mildred, Liise and Phil Boyd, of Parma, Ida ho; Mr. and Mrs. Charlea H. Curtis of Stockton, Cal.; Mrs. Lena M.

No one need question the necessity for cessation, for a brief period dur ing the year, from the daily routine of your work. There are sound phy siological, mental, social, and econ omical reasons for a vacation period. The physical energy upon which you have constantly drawn must be re newed and increased. That tired, listless feeling, the accumulation of your repeated and hearty responses to the demands of your work, must be dispelled. Your visions and ideals must not only be maintained but also enlarged. And, finally, your mental and physical condition must be so guarded that your earning capacity be not impaired. Wonderful scenery, cooling winds, and the normal human response to all that is living in the realms of na ture have made it customary for the vacation period to be allotted to one of the summer months. Transporta tion facilities the train, the boat, and the automobile make it possi ble for you to visit every nook and corner of the world. Whether you should have solitude or should seek the excitement of crowds is for you to decide; you may have either. Choose, however, that which is en tirely foreign to your daily mode of life and of play. Keep away from anything that resembles an activity that is routine to your work. Give your mind complete relaxation. Your physical activities should, at all times, be so apportioned that there should be no need to "rest up" after your relurn from your vacation. Whatever exercise you indulge in see that it is in keeping with your physi cal requirements. Avoid excesses of any kind. Give proper and careful at tention to the food you eat and to the water you drink. Rear in mind that typhoid fever and other intestinal dis eases and disorders may be easily ac quired from contaminated food and water supplies. Maintain and exer cise your knowledge of sanitary de cency. Your vacation will have been mer ited and successful if, upon your re turn you ar mentally and physically refreshed, and are not only ready but also eager to resume your daily activ ities. "Dad" E. C. Maddock was a visitor In Heppner yesterday from Arlington. This Week By Arthur Brisbane The Nordic Craze. To Live With Monkeys. Tailless Aligators, Etc. Foot and Mouth Cure. The "purely Nordic craze has gone far. A scientific association of German "radicalists" proposes to plan a new State fn which only those "purely Nordic" will be admitted. The scientists allege that blood tests will distinguish the purely Nor dic from the mixed breeds. That's interesting, as there is not on all the surface of the earth any single sample of a pure breed, wheth er of "Nordic," Aryan, Semitic, Mon golian, African of Malaysian strain. All the breeds were mixed up long ago, although they don't know it. That new Nordic state, by the way, would exclude the founder of Chris tianity, whose mother was a Jewess. He, certainly, was not "purely Nor dic." Here's one original thought. John Gromardie, citizen of New York, writes to the Franklin Park Zoo in Boston, saying he'd like to be exhib ited in the monkey house, with the other primates, "to show the public I how much man resembles the ape, in accordance with the Darwinian the ory." Some that live in the open spaces. Texas, Washington, California, Flor ida, etc., will probably suggest that if all New Yorkers adapted to dem onstrating the Darwinian theory were locked up in the Zoological Garden there would be many vacancies in Fifth avenue and at Newport. How many little boys know that our word "muslin" comes from Mo sul, or that our able Italian Musso lini got his name from that land of the Mohammedans? Read in Marco Polo's Travels that "great merchants who convey spices and drugs from one country to another are termed mossulini." Herr Schomburgk, an African ex plorer, Is accused in a Berlin court of stealing from the holy grove in Liberia the "sacred stone of the alli gator without any tail." Tribes of the African West Coast have worshipped that sacred fetish for years, and want it back, to bring them luck. Schomburgk says he bought the fetish for $5. Only those NOT afraid to walk un der a ladder or sit thirteen at table have a right to laugh at the wor shippers of the tailless alligator. Arthur Harris, of the I. W. W stabbed in a fight with farm hands, learns the value of scientific educa tion. A knife thrust penetrated his pericardium sac containing the heart and made a wound three-quarters of an inch long. The sac filled with blood, the heart couldn't work. But while Harris, fully conscious, saw everything that was groing on, sur geons in Kansas City removed three of his ribs, drained the pericardium, permitting the heart to continue pumping, put back the ribs, sewed him up, and he lives. Thanks to lo cal anesthetic, Harris felt no pain. Six million bonus applications are ready, five millions more will be pre pared and sent out. Some pocket pa triots are weeping about that. It makes them sad to pay a few dollars m taxes to men that won the war, and saved them all their money. Yet the paying out of that bonus money will be to general prosperity like pouring water on dry soil. Every. body will share in the prosperity that the bonus distribution is bound to bring. Every dollar of it will be SPENT. It's the money SPENT that counts. A Berlin scientist has found and isolated the germ that causes foot and mouth disease. That news will be worth many millions to this coun try directly, and billions perhaps, in directly. It is reported, although fortunately NOT proved, that agitators in the West have purposely spead foot and mouth disease by means of dogs and otherwise. California is a bad state in which to play a game of that kind. The perpetrators would find it more dangerous than horse-stealing in Tex as in the old days. Newspapers print a story that Sen ator Robinson, of Arkansas, having a little dispute with a Dr. Mitchell at golf, knocked him down and out with one blow. Farmers in Arkansas will not only forgive but cheer their Sen ator for knocking a man down with one blow. Whether they will forgive him for playing golf is another ques tion.

GUARANTEE SIGNED Chautaoqua to Come Ne&t Year In June; Small Deficit la Faced for This Year. With the concluding program Sat urday night, Heppner's 1924 chautau qua finished a successful week. The big tent is gone, but the memory of things heard and seen there will re main with us for many days to come, all the numbers being so clean, inspi rational and educational as well as entertaining. There is a small deficit to be made up by the guarantors, but in spite of this the 1924 chautauqua is pro claimed a success, measured by the real enjoyment evidenced by the large number of attendants. The guarantee has been signed to bring it again next year in June. In our report of the programs the first two days last week we praised the performers highly. But after hearing the remaining numbers, we believe too much cannot be said of the quality of talent which Ellison White provided for our chautauqua. It was exceptionally good. Wednesday the Vernon Symphonic Quintet gave two programs, dividing the time in the afternoon with Dr. H. Leo Taylor, eminent authority on boy psychology, whose inspirational lecture, "Give the Boy a Chance," was unusually well received. In their playing of chamber music and solo work the Vernon Quintet surpassed all expectations. The introduction of the viola d 'Am ore and Paul Vernon's wonderful solos on the violin, were two treats which Heppner music lovers greatly appreciated, judging by the numerous encores called for. Dr. Taylor gave a atraight-xrom- the-shoulder punch in his lecture which hit the mark, from the number of adults present who were seen to cringe in their seats. He stressed the important part which the younger generation will play in conducting the affairs of tomorrow, and pointed out the absolute necessity of caring for ita health, education and morals that it may preserve and improve our institutions. Dr. Taylor not only said these things should be done, but told how they could be done, thereby giv ing his listeners a chance to put them into practice. Bagdasar K. Baghdigian, a native of Armenia now making good as an American, gave his lecture, "The Making of an American," Thursday afernoon, and in the evening the Clark-Browne players presented "The Mollusc" comedy-drama. Mr. Bagh digian's lecture was especially ap pealing, coming from a foreign-born citizen who holds the ideals of true Americanism in very greatest rever ence. "The Mollusc" also made a big hit with its clean comedy and true-to-life situations. The lines were very clever and the parts well taken. It taught a lesson to those who are inclined to take life too easy and be come dependent on others. Something a little different in the line of music was heard Friday when the Australian Artists Trio presented their clever and beautiful program. Their numbers consisted mainly of popular selections, with the combina tion of voice, piano and violin. Alan Murray, baritone, has a clear mellow voice and sang several groups con taining Irish folk and Negro planta tion songs. Dolly Stewart's clever humorous and characteristic vocal monologues called forth repeated en cores. But most appreciated of all from the number of encores were the violin solos of Edwyn Hames, who made the most favored of instru ments virtually talk. He played groups of classical pieces as well as many by modern composers. Dr. E. T. Hagerman brought his audience up standing in the last half of the program Friday evening with his famous lecture, "The Man Wtih One Window." From his plain, matter-of-fact manner of speech, critics have likened him to Abe Lincoln, and after hearing him we are sure his Heppner audience can appreciate this comparison. His appeal for a wider vision in all things looking toward a truer and saner democracy is sure to have its effect wherever heard. The kiddies had their day Satur day. A real clown and a circus alt their own gave them a lively timo and gladdened their hearts. Hughie Fitzpatrick, who won fame entertain ing crowds at Barnum and Bailey circuses, was theirs for one whole afternoon. Then they had a parade and costume contest, all of which made them a very good time, indeed. McDonald Birch put on the con cluding show with an entertainment of artistic magic. He did everything from taking a dozen full grown alarm clocks from a hat to conversing with the spirits, and all the tinw his wit ticisms had his audience in an up roar of laughter. His final act, the reproducing of a madonna paint inn; through the medium of the spirits was exceptionally clever. His night was called "Joy Nite" and it was in deed well named.
