Rabbit Drive Sunday Was
ABOUT 7000 SLAUGHTERED
The Drive Was Over Course
of bout Two Miles, Which
Wai Made In 40 Minutes
Enthuslam at High Pitch.
It was a jolly crowd of about forty who
left Heppner at 8:35 Sunday morning
for the big rabbit drive of the season
that was pulled off at Harry Rogers'
place, near Echo, between the hoars of
2 and 3 o'clock in the afternoon "of that
day. A short stop was made at Lexing
ton but not a man, woman or child was
in sight. At lone the Ueppner con
tingent was joined by about a dozen
men. At 9:45 our train pulled into
Heppner Junction, just 70 minutes
after leaving Heppner, including two
stops. Here twenty minutes were con
sumed in turning the engine and getting
onto the main line. ' One hour later or
a little past 11,- we were at our desti
nation, mile post 197, where there were
several rigs to convey passengers, who
did not desire to walk, a couple of miles
to the driving grounds, and it didn't
cost but 50 cents for the ride. A ma
jority of our crew preferred to walk,
because walking was preferable to
riding through the bleak wind.
At the starling point came a long
tiresom wait of two hours for the Pacific
express, on which the Pendleton ex
cursion came. This wait proved the
most tiresom part of our excursion as
all were anions to get into line for the
uiito. -uuovvTr, tui. train 'jrovihl

The only unfavorable impression
came at the close of the drive from the
improvised lunch station which made
the boys pot up 25 cents for a sandwich
and a cup of weak coffee, or if a second
cup of coffee were indulged in an extra
15 cents was demanded. The boys felt
that they were doing a generous deed
to put np 2.70 tor an excursion ticket
to go down and help rid that section of
the rabbit nuisance, and naturally feel
that the exhorbitaot rates charged for a
lunch was a mild graft.
The only regretable feature of the
excursion is ibst Harry Batholomew,
who chartered the train, was loser to
the extent of between $100 and $150.
This was caused by the inclemency of
the weather early Sunday, It began
raining early in the morning and kept
it np until 830 which caused many
who intended going to remain at home.
Bat after all the day turned to be an
ideal one for the drive.
A number of the Heppner boys went
from the drive to Pendleton to visit for
a day or two. Among them were Harry
Bartholomew, Leilie and Jack Matlock,
Victor Groahens and Albert Lalande.

G. W. Hunt of Portland who owns a
large cattle ranch on Echo Meadows,
near Foster station, in speaking of the
market conditions of livestock says
that the market at present is decidedly
unsettled and quotations vary. This
is caused by a scarcity of feed and the
high price which hay is held at this
time. Some raisers are selling off to
avoid expense of feeding.
Most of the cattle in the country now
will be held for the spring market. Mr.
Hunt thinks. But the loose stuff that
ia in marketable condition is mostly
picked up. He is feeding about 5-50
head for the spring market. Prices at
tnie time will be much improved.
It is his opinion that the size of the
herds will be reduced and the quality of
the stock brought up to the higher
standard. During the past two or three
years the greatest improvements have
been brought about.
