Practically none of thia year'i orop
naa been put on the market, the
wheat being stored in the local ele
vator and warehouses awaiting more
favorable pTice quotation!. There
was little contracting last fall, and
the market has been so unsteady since
harvest, with the general trend down
ward, that there haa been no Incentive-
to sell. However, quotations
from Portland and Chicago the past
few days indicate a reversal of this
situation, and more lively selling is
looked for before long.
From yesterday's Oregonian we
glean the following:
"A firm feeling continued in the
local wheat market yesterday and
prices were again advanced. There
were a number of bids of tl.M for
club with a possibility of $1.37 be
ing obtained. Other classes of wheat
were alio moving in a small way.
Reports from the country show no
more disposition of the farmers to
sell than heretofore. In most of
the districts only a small part of
the crop has been sold to date. Bids
at the Merchants Exchange were
ICqSe higher than Monday.
"Wheat took a big upward swing
at Chicago largely as a result of
storms that stopped threshing and
that aroused fresh anxiety relative
to possible shotage of the United
Statei supplies east of the Rockies.
Final quotation! were strong at the
top figures of the day, S 1-4 6 1 8c

usual threshing delays, It was pointed
out that nearly 81,000,000 bushels of
wheat have been exported from -the
United States since July 1 and that
notwithstanding the total Is much
smaller than at this time last year,
the proportion is turpriiing in cor-
trast with the relatively email sur
plus for 1926. Under such circum
stances, reports of continued unfav
orable weather in Canada and in the
spring wheat states northwest sent
the market kiting. New estimates
that Canada has raised more than
400,000,000 bushels in the prairie
provinces as sgsinst 235,000,000 bu
hels last year failed entirely to
check the upward sweep of values.

"The depsrtment of commerce

indicates that United States exports
of wheat since July have been 30,651,

much smaller than at thia time last

Considering the fact that practic

county was frozen out last winter,

the yield was much larger than anti

were followed closely by hot winds

badly shriveled. In spite of this,
there is an abundance of first grade
wheat, say warehousemen, and none
of the wheat was as badly hurt as
was feared in the early season.

XlTTSBURGH won today's game
8 to 2 in the World's Series when
Cuyler's homer in the eighth
scored Carey ahead of him, ac
cording to radio reports received
by Maurice Frye, local radio deal
er. The Pirates' other run came
in the fourth inning, a homer by
Wright. Washington's two tallies
were scored by Judge with a hom
er in the aecond inning, and Mc
Neeley, running for J. Harris, on
a long fly by Beach.
The game was close throughout,
except for the Pirate rally in the
eighth, and the threatening attack
of the Senatore in the ninth when
Aldrich pitched himself out of a
bad hole after filling the bases
with the first three batters. Two
errors by Peckinpaugh, Senator
shortstop, were partly responsible
for the extra Pirate score in the

looking arter his interests here. Mr.
Moyer owns a large tract of good
wheat land in the Blackhorse section,
which for a number of yeara has
been farmed on the lease plan. As
a resident of Klamath county, Mr.
Moyer states that things are some

M. R. Morgan, prominent lone resi

Wednesday. Mr. Morgan states that
there is a lot of wheat unsold in his
section and the farmers are awaiting
a rise in the price before letting go.
These who took advantage of the
price offered at the opening of the
season are much to the good in Mr.
Morgan's opinion, and it happened he
was not among that number.

Remembered by Members
Of His Old Regiment
John C. Ball, Grand Army veteran
of Heppner, was remembered the past
week by receiving a long letter from
the members of his old regiment, who
met in annual reunion at Columbus,
Ohio, on the third Thursday of Sep
tember. On this date each and every
year the members of the 113th Ohio
Regiment who can possibly do so,
gather at the Ohio state capital and
enjoy the rehearsal of old war days,
when the boys of '61 went forth to
fight for the preservation of the na
Mr. Ball states that but. one mem
ber of his company was present on
this occasion, Jos. Jackson, and s
far as he knows now, but three mem
bers of the comnany besides himself
still live. He has never seen sny of
them since the close of the war, and
the last meeting with members of his
company was following the battle of
Chicamagua. Mr. Ball entered the
service at the age of 18 years and
was severely wounded in action, as
was his old comrade, Jackson. As a
rule, following every annual meeting
of the regiment, letters are sent to
the absent members, and Mr. Ball is
very frequently remembered in this
manner. A number of photographs
were enclosed in the letter to Mr.
Ball at this time, and these reveal to
him the fact of the ever thinning
ranks of the veterans of the war of
the rebellion. At this gathering but
12 members of the entire 113th Ohio
regiment were able to be present.
RESCUE WORKER HERE.
F. E. A. Smith, financial secretary
of the Pacific Coast Rescue and Pro

of the week, soliciting and receiving
liberal financial support for the Al-
bertina Kerr Nursery Home and the

by the society in Portland. Heppner

other signs of disease must not milk

Heppner Lodge No. 358, B. P. O. E.,
is preparing to place before the school
children within its jurisdiction, the
program for the saving of "Old Iron
sides." The local lodge is getting
shaped up for "Old Ironsides Week.'

Secretary Wilbur felt that to raise

Recent issues of the Elks Magazine
contain artidlea setting forth the
plans of campaign, from one of which
we quote as follows:
'The inspiring patriotic and edu
tional lesson interwoven in the
deeds and adventures of "Old Iron-
des" and the early traditions of our
American Navy will be brought to
twenty million school children in this
nation during "Old Ironsides Week,"
October 19-24, by the 1400 lodges of
Elks. This is the indication from the
arly returns of the survey of the
school situation of America that has
been going on for over a month in
the different lodges throughout the
verywhere the movement has
been received with great enthusiasm,
and to the National Headquarters at
the Boston Navy Yard thousands of
letters have poured in characterizing
the work as the most patriotic service
that the Elks have been asked to do.
The scope of the activity is more far
reaching than any national movement
among the school children. The slo
gan of the campaign is "An Elk in
hvery School Will Save 'Old Iron
sides'." The 1400 lodges are striving
to make this slogan a reality, for
the "Old Ironsides" committees, of
each lodge are planned on this basis.
and there will be an Elk assigned to
every school within the jurisdiction
of each lodge.
The campaign received another big
impetus at the Grand Lodge Session
at Portland, Ore., which enthusiastic
ally passed resolutions endorsing the
movement and calling upon the lodges
to do their utmost in this patriotic
call. It was the keynote of ther Grand
Lodge Session, and thousands of del
egates and members of the Order
went back to their home lodges re
solved that they would put over the
campaign in a 100 per cent way."
This article also sets out that pro
vision has been made for the award
ing of medals to school children with

the best 600-word essay on the United
