MOST OF CAST NEW
Player. Who Had Never Ben on the
Stage Before Make Few Slips In
Good Three-Act Comedy.
An almost entirely new cant ap
peared before the Heppner publie at
the Star theater last evening, when
the Juniori of the high tchool pre
aented .their play. "Brother Elks," to
an appreciative audience. The thea
ter wai well filled, and be it laid to
the credit of each one of the per
former!, their characters were well
sustained. But one member of the
cast had been before the Heppner
public before and if some of them
were slightly afflicted with stage
fright, or forgot their lines and cues
occasionally, they were not to be
censured, for these slips were few
and far between.
The play is comedy practically all
the way through, and under the tu
torship of Principal Smith and his
assistants, the cast was able to bring
out the salient points with telling
effect, and the audience was convulsed
with many a good laugh as the play
The high school Orchestra fur
nished several selections and between
acts one and two, Chas. Notson gave
a reading which demonstrated his
ability along this line, while follow
ing act two, Mr. Smith and Miss
Kathleen McDaid offered a "vodevli"
sketch that brought forth a lusty
encore. The audience was well
pleased with the evening's entertain
ment, and it was shown that some
very fine talent ia coming along for
future plays of the high school, and
the Juniors will be able to fully
measure up in thia regard to those
of the classes that have gone before.

PORTLAND ATTORNEY SPEAKS.
L. D. Mahone, attorney from Port
land, was a visitor here over the
week end, looking after legal busi
ness. Being a man of wide experience
and a student of world affairs, Mr.
Mahone delivered an address on Sun
day evening at the Methodist church
that was very interesting. He spoke
on Monday afternoon at the high
achool and then again Monday eve
ning at the church, where he was
greeted with a fair sited crowd. His
Monday evening address was strict
ly along political lines, though it was
presumed that he would continue his
lina of argument for the business
men along similar lines of the talk
on Sunday evening. Mr. Mahone,
while being well Informed in many
ways, brought nothing new to the
people in his Monday evening meet
ing, as the so-called plain facts and
figures were all threshed out In the

Meningitis has come down to our
time through the centuries like many
of the other Infections but It was not
recognised until 1805, Outbreaks

ingitis has its greatest prevalence in
winter and spring. It is a disease of
children and young adults. The dis
ease is caused by a double round or
ganism which occurs in tissue cells
and is called on this account the dip

There are other forms of meningitis
but the epidemic form is always caus
ed by this germ.
The germs leave the body with the
discharges from mouth and nose. In
no other disease have carriers been
demonstrated in such great numbers
in proportion to the number of cases.
The disease is transmitted by con
tact with a carrier or with a person
who has the disease. Individuals de
velop into carriers by contact with
carriers and they occur usually when
there is close contact and bad ventil
ation. Carriers can be cleared up by
having plenty of fresh air and avoid
The disease is usually preceded by
chills, depression, headache, pain in
back and limbs, but suddenness of
onset is the most striking featut.
There are a number of types of this
infection but there are certain car

set, general depression with or with
out pains In the back and neck, draw

consists of an early injection of anti
