The musical given by the Heppner,

Walked Against Time.
No event has occured in Heppner of
recent date that would compare in
point of genuine interest and enthusiasm
to tbat made manifest in the walk
against time by Harry Cummings Mon
day afternoon. .
For some time there had been con
siderable talk regarding Harry's ability
as a walker, and on Saturday evening
this talk culminated in a wager of $40
to the side as to whether he could walk
18 miles in hours, Harry putting
his own money against that of Tom
Stanage's vtho claimed that he could
not perform the feat. So from Satur
day evening until the close of the
conte-t against time excitement ran
h'gh and considerable side betting was
done, probably between $200 and $300
being up at the time of the start.
Dan Stalter, Billy Crank and Fred
Blaumer were selected as judges and
Geo. Cod Be r as timekeeper and the
start was made at exactly 3:30 from the
corner of Main and May streets, over
lap of 2130 feet.
A little less than 46 laps, each of
which had to be made in an average of
four minutes and 33 seconds, was the
requirement. Of thee 24 lap were
made in the following time : 4 15, 4-35,
4-30, 4-40, 4-15, 4-15, 4-40, 4-20, 4-45,
4-30, 4-30, 4-40, 4-40, 4-50, 4-37, 4-40,
4-40, 4-40, 4-50, 4-45, 4-40, 5, 5, 5.
This added gives one hour, 57 minutes
and 17 seconds, and the exact distance
traveled being 9.68 miles.

The John Day News summarizes the
livestock situation in the interior as
follows: "The live stock business,
which was so gloomy during last week,
has materially improved during the last
few days, and stockmen are beginning
to take an inventory of the damage,
which is not so heavy as had been
looked for. As the weather moderated,
the days and nights assumed an even
temperature, neither too warm nor too
cold, and stock did not give up as they
would have done had the sun came out
hot by day, and the nights become
chilly and stormy.
The Bear Valley stock was mostly
moved to the range country with no .
great loss, and is now doing well on the
'One of the largest owners in the
county stated that losses in sheep were
considerable, but not at all panicy. .
For himself he said he bad suffered no
greater loss than the normal, among
the flocks which he kept at home and
run for himself.
"Ex-Sheriff Newt Livingston reported
the situation bad in bis section of
country, on the Middle Fork, and told
all the aspiring candidates who asked
tor delegate, to give them bay, and
they would get them faster than in mny
other war. A good mmaj nerds had .
been turned out on the hills, and con- ,
siderable loss had ensued.
"Along the John Day valley, and es- -pecially
in the upper section, the loss .
was no greater than it generally is,
hich is only nominal, according to
J. B. Johnson.
