Th executive com m itte of the
Morrow County Rod Cross met with
Mr. Cochran on tho evening of Jan
ury 4, at which time a dp Da t ion of
$:i5 was made for the relief of the
family of John Grey at Morgan. The
result of the eighth annual roll call
was the toUl of $281 Of this sum
$106,50 was sent to headquarters, the
home chapter retaining $176.50. A
nurse has been employed to help care
for the Gray children and the latent
reports are to the effect that the two
older children are rapidly recovering
but that the younger one, about two
years of age, is not doing so well.
The crises is passed however, and the
attending physician has hopes that
the little one will not be seriously
affected as a result of the disease.
The children are suffering from in
fantile paralysis. Being very conta
gious, a strict quarantine is being
maintained that the disease may be
readily stamped out. The Red Cross
will cooperate in every way possible,
and Dr. Walker of lone, who is hand
ling this case, will use every precau
tion to prevent its spread.
Philomath correspondence in Ben
ton Independent: Last Monday eve
ning Philomath and community were
shocked when a message was received
by George Bennett telling of the
death of his son. Prof. Frank R. Ben
nett, who was the principal of the
schools at Klamath Falls. He passed
away on the operation table where
a major operation for the removal of
gall stones was being performed. The
many friends of the family mourn
with them in their sorrow....M..Mr.
Frank Bennett and daughter Joyce
have returned to Klamath Falls
where Mrs. Bennett is employed in
the schools and where Mibi Joyce
will resume her studies in the high
Charley Furlong states that it is
no fun digging out about a mile of
water pipe to get it thawed so the
water will run again. This was his
experience at the Eight Mile farm
during several days of the past week,
as the recent cold snap sent the frost
down to a depth that caught the pipes
and blocked the flow. As to the dam
age to wheat In Eight Mile, he thinks
it is nil at present, though no one
can tell very well until a warmer
spell of weather comes. In his dig
ging through the field he found no
grain that he considered to be dam
aged by the freese. Mr. Furlong was
a visitor here on Saturday,
Lowell Twitchell is now located
with the Heppner Packing Co. as the
man at the block. He began his work
there on the 5th, taking the place of
Graver Swaggart who has been assist
ing Mr. Kirk for some time. V,r.
Twitchell has had some 15 years ex
peiience in the butcher business and
has become thoroughly proficient in
the meat cutter's art. He was for
merly with the Pendleton Packing Co.,
for whom he worked for several years
but was more recently engaged in
the running of a market in Los An
geles. Frank F raters visited in town for a
short time on Tuesday. He states
that there Is no doubt but that some
damage has been done the wheat in
his part of the Eight Mile section,
but at present the indications seem
to be that it is slight. He does not
like the present weather conditions
of thawing and freezing and feels
that more actual damage will result
from this than occurred from the sub
sero weather of two weeks or more
