HEPPNER OLD HOME Native of Vermont Came Here In 1875 ; Waa Successful Sheepman For Great Many Years. The sudden death of William P. Dutton occurred in Portland at 1 o'clock Monday afternoon. Mr. Dut ton had not been ill, and had spent some time Monday morn in in the lobby of the Imperial hotel talking: with friends. He went out to lunch eon and died at the family home shortly after arriving, apparently of heart failure. Mr. Dutton was in Heppner on a viait week before last and at that time was apparently In aa (food health as has been his lot for several years. Mr. Dutton's body was brought to Heppner Wednesday evening: and fun eral services were held at 10 o'clock this morning from the Episcopal church, the Rev. W. 0. Livingstone, pastor of the Christian church, offi ciating;. Business houses of the city cloKed during; the funeral in honor of his memory, and a very large con course of friends attended the funer al. Interment was in Masonic ceme tery. William P. Dutton was born in Vermont, at Macindoes Falls, Novem ber 23, 152, and died in Portland, Oregon, July 21. 1924, aged 71 years, 7 months and 28 days. He left the state of Vermont at the age of 16, and came to California, where he re mained three years. He then removed to Portland, Oregon, where he was en (raged in the grocery business, the firm name being Farnworth & Dut ton. Being burned out in the big ti.-e of 1875 he came to Morrow coun ty, accompanied by his partner, 0. E. Farnsworlh, He settled on Rhea creek on the Charles Miller place and engaged in the fchecp buniness with Mr. Farns worth. In 187ft he came to Heppner and wa employed as clerk in the store of Uncle Jack Morrow, making his residence at Mr. Morrow's home. When Old Chief Joseph went on the warpath the same year, Mr. Dutton was among the citizens of Heppner and community who built a fort for mutual protection. Since 1S7fl he lived in Eastern Oregon, on Rhea creek and in and near Heppner, until 11 years ago when he went to Port land to live, and where he has since resided. During Mr. Dutton's resi dence in Morrow county he became an influential stockman and land own er, and made quite a large success of the business in which ho was en gaged. On May 17, 1883, Mr. Dutton was married to Minn Ida Hallock, who survives her husband. They had no children but ho took at the age of nine, W. H. Dutton, son of his de ceased brother, and cared for him as hia own, the two sustaining the re lationship of father and son. He was a member of the Woodmen of the World and the Ancient Order of United Workmen. He was a high ly respected and much honored citl sen and played a large part in the development of Eastern Oregon. His sterling worth and strength of char acter won for him a hot of friends. He was a great lover of horses. He was a true friend, kind husband and a real father in spirit; a fine type of American cititennhip. In his going the state of Oregon sustains no small loss, but his works will live after him.

Mr. and Mrs, Blaine Chapel, Mr, and Mrs. Henry Chapel. Mrs, lluttie Johnson, Hot Water May Be Taken From Power House; W. B. Barratt Gives $50 Toward Work. "Wow, it's cold!" Such exclamations will not be heard for Ion at Heppner's fine new swim ming tank, provided by the American Legion. A move has been started that looks like a sure go, that should take the chill off the pond In a very short time. The many complaints against the cold water caused the Legion boys to get together Tuesday evening and dis cuss the probability of remedying the evil. A way of providing the heat had already been suggested. It had been figured out that there was enough waste hot water from the power plant to warm the tank sufficiently. With this much to work on, besides several offers of donations to help install the piping necessary to transport the wa ter, the Legion boys were quick to get into action. A benefit dance for Saturday night was announced, and several volunteer ticket sellers among the business men sent out to do their work. Besides tickets to the dance, tickets for the swimming pool are also being dispos ed of. To start the ball rolling, W. B. Bar ratt, who has already given very lib erally to the cause by making a pres ent of the ground on which the tank Is located, gave $50 toward installing the warm water. Mr. Barratt has been a strong advocate of a good swimming pool for Heppnr for a long time, and he has backed this interest in a very substantial way. Besides the contributions of land and money he is at work interesting others in the enterprise. With the general interest being taken in this move it should be but a very short time before people have lost the excuse of staying out of the tank because the water is too cold. As it is many are getting real en joyment from a plunge in the moun tain nectar, and every day finds a iarge number in the pool. Ten Millionth Ford . Greeted With Music Tour 'of Car Marking Record Pro duction Reaches Middle West; Running on Schedule. Music and the Ten Millionth Ford are making merry along the Lincoln highway. If it were possible to reproduce all the selections that have greeted the enr so far on its eventful trip from New York to Pan Francisco, the world would be given a phonographic record which would make the modern jazi orchestra green with envy, ac cording to accounts of the tour. There would be recorded a great med ley of airs, produced by a big variety of instruments and punctuated by frequent bursts of song, continual honking of auto horns and blasts of factory whistles. Never before has there been so much music along the great national roadway which connects the East and West coasts as has characterized the journey of the Ten Millionth Ford. There have been parades and re ceptions with large bands, Bmall bands and even orchestras. Men's bands, ladies' bands, and boy's bands have participated in greeting the car at various places. Scotch bag pipers were a feature along part of the route. Buglers announced the coming of the car in some towns and in one little city a group of pretty girls rid ing on a float heralded its advent with horns. Even calliopes have at different points added their familiar notes to the welcome. Numbers rendered have included everything from the1 inspiring tones of patriotic airs and the ever appeal ing awing of the march to the latest popular jazx fancies and a reversion to the more intimate tune of "The Little Old Ford Rambled Right Along." Now traversing the great stretches of the western part nf the country through Nebraska, Wyoming and Utah and maintaining its schedule with characteristic Ford perform ance, the car which is telling the in teresting story of the production of tin million transportation units by the Ford Motor company, is moving steadily on toward the Pacific coast with enthusiastic and picturesque welcomes at every point along the route.

Coolidge to Make Accept ance Speech of Interest To the People. Washington, D. C, July 23. The formal notification of President Cool id ge will take place in Washington about the 19th of August and similar ceremonies will be held at Evanston, Illinois, a few days ater when Gen eral Charles G. Dawes will be form ally told that he has been selected aa the running mate of Coolidge. The speech of acceptance by the President will, according to close friends, be a document that will be understood by all the people, it will, no doubt, be as plain as was hia first message to congress, which it will be remembered brought forth thousands of letters and telegrams from all sections of the nation complimenting him upon his honest declaration of principles and the straightforward stand he had taken upon public ques tions. There will again be demon strated to the people that the Pres ident is unafraid, that he refuses to ue high sounding phrases in order to catch votes, or to offer to the peo ple some theoretical cure-all that everyone who stops to think will realize could be put in force. Cool idge has always been honest with the people, he believes that they should be told the truth, he believes in their intelligence and their de sire to do the right thing by their government, and he means to see that their government does the right thing by them. Coolidge is the kind of a President who believes it his duty to use all the power of his office to see that the people of the United States are giv en a square deal he believes it his ; duty to aid in bringing the greatest j amount of prosperity possible to all sections of the nation, he takes his job seriously and thinks less of the great honor of being president than he does of the opportunity that has been given to him to be of real ser vice to his fellow citizens. A Washington newspaperman, one who has followed politics carefully, for many years, made the following: statement the other day it was: "It I in remarkable to see a man in high public office who cares so little for himself and so much for the people the people believe in him they dem onstrated this at the primaries and I'll wager that you will see the votes coming out strong for hira even long before election. I have talked with many democrats, some conservative who do not like the second on their ticket progressive democrats will not accept the head, and they will have none of the independent candi date, claiming this is no time for ex periments with theories, the great majority of these men recognire Coolidge's honesty and ability and unless I miss my guess, many who followed the war president or the democratic nominee in 1920 will go quietly to the polls and "vote for Coolidge." S. E. Notson Attends Big Crime Conference S. E. Notson, who is attending the anti-crime conference under the aus pices of the Northwest Association of Sheriffs and Police in Seattle this week, is on th program as one of the speakers.

Richardson returned home Sunday evening from the Elks na tional convention at Boston. He re ports a very good trip though quite hot. It has been 46 years since Mr. Richardson left Boston, which was his boyhood home, and be said he was unable to locate any of his relatives. There was a very 4arge crowd at the convention and It look the big par ade three hours to pass one point. Mr. Richardson said there was a big cloudburst during the parade which proved to be a blessing as it alleviat ed the excessive heat. Had it not been for the cloudburst he believes many would have been suffocated as the crowd was jammed together bo closely and the heat was so intense. As it was Red Cross ambulances were busy continually hauling persons away who were overcome. After it was all over several truck loads of women's hats which had been ruined by the downpour and thrown away were picked up, said Mr. Richardson. The Elks convention will come to Portland next year. FIRST CHURCH OF CHRIST. July 27, 1924. Your opportunity Is now and here; not in some remote time and place; seize it.

Safe Water For the Tourists and Campers Prom State Board of Health. No problem is of greater import- 1 ance tc the tourist and camper than the safety of his drinking water. At home he is familiar with his sur- i roundings, he knows the source of his water supply and is safe-guarded by rules and regulations of his State and local boards of health. This is not always the case in camps and on excursions. Persons who are ordin arily .cautious about their drinking water at home, may become careless and indifferent when on their vaca tions. Furthermore, many campers and tourists are entirely ignorant of the dangers of contaminated water. No surface water should be con sidered safe until it has been tested at a competent laboratory, and a sanitary survey made of its source. In the army, it is customary for a medical, officer, well in the van, to make a sanitary survey of the avail able water supplies. This is sup-, planted by a few laboratory tests to determine its purity or safety. It is gratifying to note that this meth od is being adopted more and more, by such organizations as the Boy Scouts, the Girl Scouts, and the Camp fire Girls. The educational work being done among these young folks is far reaching in its effects and should be encouraged. In case of doubt, do not hesitate. Sterilize your water. Several methods of sterilisation have been recom mended for campers and excursion ists. Boiling wil Istenuze almost any kind of water. The flat taste produced by boiling may be removed by stirring the water briskly with an egg beater, or pouring it from one vessel to another. A Lister bag, such as is used in the army, may be used also In camps. This consists of a water-tight canvas bag holding about forty gallons. The water is sterilized by the addition of one gram of hypo chlorite of lime (bleaching powder.) Either hypochlorite of soda or hy pochlorite of lime (bleaching powder) may be used for the sterilization of water. The powders may be obtained on the market in small containers for 5c and upward. A stock solution is made by dissolving a teaspoonful of powder in a pint of water. A tea spoonful of this stock solution will sterilize ten gallons of water. There are also a number of tablets con taining chlorine sold on the market for this purpose. They may be ob tained through your druggists. One of these tablets ia generally used to sterilize a quart of drinking water. Filters cannot be depended upon un der camp conditions. Safety first!

Famous Manufacturer Points Out Possibilities of Producing Ni trates for Immense Power. WOULD ELIMINATE STRIFE Interview In Collier! Shows How V. S. Could Force Peace Through Development of Resource. New York, July 23. Henry Ford believes great wars can be ended by the United States wielding the big stick. In an interview with Samuel Crowther in Collier's, the National Weekly, for July 26th, Mr. Ford de clares that potential nitrate produc tion of Muscle Shoals will make the United States independent of Chilean nitrate and able to manufacture high explosives on a colossal scale, un dreamed of by munitions manufac turers, and thus "develop war power! beyond anything that has even been ! known. In the interests of peace,' he 1 declares, "it seems that we ahall have to do it." 1 Mr. Ford states that war ia not in-1 evitable. "The worJd does not seem ! to be tired of war in spite of the fact i that everybody lost and nobody won in the last war. People are still thinking that force, and-force atone, is important, and they are going to go on thinking in that way until a force appears which makes the big gest forces they can muster trivial in comparison.' He believes that force is latent in Muscle Shoals, and that it can and must be developed unless an enormous emergency expenditure is to be totally scrapped. "Our bid for Muscle Shoals, he says, "hag been talked about a good deal, but we have not been doing the talking." He adds that his interest in Muscle Shoals was that of preserving a national asset of vital value in a future national emergency, and that if there is a better way of developing the project than the one he suggest ed it ought to be adopted. He describes the boosting of the price of nitrates for agricultural use as "poor, petty business," and that nitrate profits could be easily multi plied by selling nitrate products to the farmers as cheaply as possible. "Petty larceny wars," he states "will die out of themselves," adding: "We cannot prevent all war, but we can prevent great wars." Mr. Ford believes that that potent instrument of war-making, the aer oplane, "can be commercially devel oped as oon aa they (airplanes) are taken up in a commercial way. Ground at Dearborn has been given over to an aviation field. As soon as we know as much about them aa we do about automobiles and that will not be long then they can be built by the thousands or by the millions, he declares. "International justice is very apt to be power balanced against power, instead of right balanced against right," and Mr. Ford believes that the queer combination" of banking and business abroad, which he says is not commonly the case in America, re suits in war as a contest for markets. The home market is our chief con cern, he concludes. "We have no temptation to make war for trade pur poses. ' In the same interview in Collier s Mr. Ford refers to the recent oil in vestigation and its disclosures, as serting that "No people other than our own would have kicked up such a fuss. The worst evidence that has been turned up concerns action which in many countries could be taken as a matter of course. They expect their politicians to act that way. These investigations would scarcely have been started even in this country twenty or thirty years back. We shall have nothing to fear so long as po litical rascality is exposed." Small Boy Loses Eye By Bullet Explosion Roy C. Boggs, Jr., 9 year old son of Mr, and Mrs. Roy Boggs of Mon ument, lost an eye and had a close call to losing his life Sunday when the shell of an exploded bullet lodged his eye. The projectile entered through the pupil of the eye, going directly through the center just above the optic nerve, and had it gone a sixteneth of an inch further, the at tending physician says it would have reached the brain, the result of which would have been fatal. The accident happened Sunday af ternoon when young Boggs, on horse back, passed some boys playing in a yard and was called over to see what they were doing. He was asked to look into a bucket on a fire, not being told what the contents were. The boys had placed some 22. calibre cart ridges in the bucket and just as Roy peered into it one of them exploded, with the result as given. He was rushed to Heppner to a doctor. Dr. Johnston dressed the in jured member, and thinking there might be a chance to save the eye an operation was not performed imme diately, but an x-ray picture was taken. Development of the picture revealed the shell in the precarious position, and the eye containing it was removed Monday afternoon by Drs. Johnston and McMurdo. Infec tion was starting to set in, and the operation was performed just in time to save the other eye, the physicians state. CARD OF THANKS. We wish to thank the many kind friends and neighbors who so kindly assisted us in the death of our dear son and brother and also for the many beautiful floral offerings. Mr. and Mrs. J W Stevens and Family. The Willing Workers wilt hold their monthly window sale at Humphreys Drug company store Saturday morn ing. There will be a choice supply of cooked foods. By Arthur Brisbane Warning to Parents. 8 Million Little Pigs. Riding a Driving Wheel. Eastman's Millions. All fathers and mothers should be put on their guard by the death of the President's son. The boy wore shoes, or sandals, with no stockings, as thousands of boys and girls do, every day in Summer. THAT IS MOST DANGEROUS. The earth, everywhere, is impreg nated with dangerous germs, includ ing the germ of lockjaw, and innum erble other germs that may cause blood poisoning if a slight wound is neglected. The feet and especially the toes. are more easily infected than any other external part of the body. Cramped for generations in shoes, deprived of their natural blood sup ply, very often the toes lose their power of resistance to germ attack. Constantly you read of blood poison ing that starts in the foot. - Wearing shoes without stockings, neglecting a cut or blister, as chil dren often do, any germs accumula ted are persistently and continuously rubbed into the tissues and into the blood circulation, with no protecting stocking between the foot and the leather. The pluckier the child the more probability of a 'neglected wound. And boyish courage, unfortunately, is no protection against germ at tack. The Spring erop of pigs is short by 8,000,000 in the corn belt." What becomes of the "consciousness of those 8,000,000 little pigs that never saw the light of day? Are they suspended somewhere in eternity, waiting for a chance to kick up their little legs in the corn belt and eat good corn, previous to having their throats cut? If they could think at all, what would they say to a system that brings them into the world to eat corn for a little while and then be eaten by their "superiors," a system that keeps eight million of them out of the world when the price of corn happens to go up? What is the exact difference between 8,000,000 pigs and the same number of humans? Next in importance to INTELLI GENCE comes POWER. Everything we have comes from power intelli gently directed. The World Power Conference in London, discussing the possibility of harnessing the wind, waves, tides, sunlight, natural steam and hot wells and unused possibili ties of alcohol production, is a most important gathering. Prince Conti says the United States of America could get more power from its hot springs in California, the Yellowstone, "Valley of Ten Thousand Smokes" in Alaska, etc.. than from all our waterfalls. And think of unused heat, deep under ground. Sir Charles Bedford says alcohol from waste vegetable matter would provide more power than gasoline, when oil is exhausted. Rice straw wasted in India could produce enough alcohol to equal in power the annual production of petroleum. This earth is a driving wheel and it is silly to think that we could ever run short of power, living on a driv ing wheel. The attempt to climb Mt. Everest is abandoned for this year. But with the patience and perseverance of other insects, men will keep on try ing and they will reach the top. They may find there the froien bodies of Mallory and Ervtne, two of the expedition last seen as they en tered a heavy cloud in a drive for the top. Rather a romantic grave, in the freezing cold of the highest spot on earth. Some day sightseers in flying machines will look at a stone "cover ing the dead bodies of the first two men that ever climbed up here," and children in the sightseeing flier will ask, "Why did they climb up, instead of flying?" Five years ago George Eastman, of Rochester, allowed 6.000 employes of his Eastman Kcdak company to sub scribe for stock in the company at par. Last week the employes got their stock, worth $21,000,000. They paid just half that price for it originally, making a profit of 100 per cent. That's a good way to en courage good work and interest work ers in their jobs. DEATH WS UNEXPECTED. The death of W. P.
