mystery shrowds bia departure.
The mystery ia not aim ply the (act
of bia going away bnt the condition!

Mr. Travis, the manager of tbe stage
line, reports that be paid Hubbard a
months wages Saturday which amounted
to $39.10,, after he bad deducted some'
thing like $15, which Hobbard bad
drawn on account. On investigation it
was ascertained that tbe atage driver had
spent all but about $20 of bia month':
wages before leaving town.
It appears that Hubbard bad made
preparations aa usual Sunday morning
to take the atage out, having harnessed
bis team and greased the wagon and

The fact that he bad paid a week's

When seen by tbe marshal Hubbard
did not appear to be intoxicated and
was going in the direction of the stable
where his team was kept.

The death 'of Mra Julia Wright re-
moved from Heppner one of ber most
beloved citizens. For thirty years she
has been a resident of Morrow county,
and ber numerous kind deeds tcward
neighbors during pioneer days and in
fact during her active life will ever
remain fresh in tbe memory of these
people. She was a devoted christian

the whole affair appears to be a farce.
It appears that Mr. Heath and a
partner are timber locators, and that
about a year auo they located some
Everett parties on claims in the moun
tains south of Hardman. Afterwards
these parties became dissatisfied and
wanted their money back which Heath
refused to refund, and bence tbe present
Heath, who ia reputed to be a good
citiaen in bia neighborhood, feels con
fident that ba will be able to prove tbe
ibarge wholly unfounded.
At the close of their lodge meeting,
held last Wednesday evening, at which
two candidates were initiated into the

were a solo by J. A. McKee and a duet
by the Misaoa Carr and Driskell.
At the conclusion of the musicale a
splendid luncheon was spread which
was enjoyed very much. The com

cattle are supposed to be tbe ones
