Acreage of 'Grain Exceeds
Any Former Season
Uunsub'iy Large Amount of
Business Transacted at the
Special Session of County
Those of the Morrow county farmers
who had not finished seeding before the
recent rains are now pushing thia work
to early completion during the present
fine spell of weather. Some of the
wheat growers were leary of sowing
during the dry season for fear their grain
would rot in the ground, but the abun
dant rala has put them to work again,
and the result will be that Morrow
county will have the largest acreage
seeded to grain in her history before the
close of the season.
Thanksgiving day was generally ob:
Berved in Heppner. AJ stores and
business houses were closed.
A nn)on thanksgiving service was
held at the Christian church com
mencing at 11 o'clock in the forenoon,
Rev. II. L. Beightol, pastor of the M.
. church, delivered the sermon. The
attendance was large.
Thare were very many thanksgiving
dinners at which friends and neighbors
together enjoyed elegant dinners.

E. Voose Claims Insurance
OTHER SIMILAR CASES.
Heirs of Heppner Flood Vic
tims Contest $3000 Insur
A case similar to the celebrated Fair
case, in which the heirs, failing U agree,
and bringing suit for a division of the
property, had to prove which died first,
the husband or the wife, has been filed,
in the portland courts, says the Ore
gonian. The case is that of E. Voose,
administrator of the estate of Mrs Em
ma Hanby, who with her husband, Har
ry Hanby, were victims of the Heppner
flood, Voose is the father of Mrs
Hanby, and he is suing the Modern
Woodmen of America for $3000, the
amount of a policy which her husband
held In the fraternal order.
There has baen no attempt on the
part of the society to refute the claim,
but the payment has been withheld
because of counter-claimants. It seema
that after order was restored at Hepp
ner, a man named J. Kirk was appointed
administrator of Harry Hanby'a estate,
and in due course ol time he made ap
plication to the camp of Modern Wood
men of America for the $3000 due on
the policy which Harry Hanby held.
Mrs Hanby waa made beneficiary in
the pclicy, and of coarse ehe being dead
the money due on the policy would go
to the heira of the one who died last.
As near as could be learned,, the heira
of the husbann has taken no actios in
the matter of obtaining the money from
the society. When Mr Yooee learned!
that Kirk had made application for th
payment of the poILoy, through hia
attorney Oglesby Young, he filed a
counter-claim, and the payment baa
been held up.
In actions of this sort it is necessary
to establish thi fact that the husband
died first, although it ia the general
presumption that the man lives longer
than the woman, because be is the
stronger. Both Mr and Mrs Hanby
perished in the Heppner flood, and
their bodies were found close to each
other. No one saw the two unfortunate
people drown, and that the husband in
this case died before his wife will- have
to be proved before Yooee's claim is
allowed. From the position in which
the bodies were found and from the
general surroundings, it may be proved
that hanby was the first to die. Then
the $3000 will go to Mrs Hanby's heirs. '
There is a number of similar cases
as a result of the flood, but several
have been settled, while others are yet
pending and will probably be settled
without taking them into the courts.
