Last Saturday was a lively day in
Heppner. Sheepmen, cattlemen, horse
men and ranchmen were in town from
ail parts of the surrounding section, and
the streets presented an animated appear
ance. Merchants and business men were
kept on the jump all day, and the total
amount of transactions would reach
quite a respectable figure in round num
bers. Tho most agreeable and yet harmless
drink ever invented is ice-cold soda wa
ter. The first marble soda-fountain ever
brought to Heppner, and the only one
now here, is at the variety store of Minor
tt Bods-in, where thisdolicions beverage,
of any Jomxed flavor, may now be obtain
ed. Also plenty of mountain reading
matter on hand.

flowers, contrasting strongly with the
bright scarlet of the wild ve rbena. This
is liowery June, alive with the music of
meadow -larks, and no cramped city
fence to confine its thousand perfumes.
It is a lovely, peaceful picture.

On Wednesday afternoon of last
a deplorable accident occurred m
canyon, about 14 miles southe:!
Heppner. by which. Henry, a son
H. Gaant, lost his life. A. J. Hale
hauling a large load of rails down i
canyon, audihe two Gaunt boys, He:
and Johnnie; were with him, their faor
residing in there while Mr. Gaunt j
-CJgaged in getting out some tim)jt
The road down tho canvon was ti
sidling, but wagons had often pnseJw
over u wuwiut ucoiueni. a eu-ioo ran
was tied to the wagon and run straight
out on the upper side. On this rail the
boys rode to keep the load from capsiz-
inc. while Mr. Hale rode on the brake-
block. All might have gone well hadU
not the wheels slid down some distance!
and oue of the hind ones dropped into g
chuck-hole. Then the wagon went over.j
Mr. Hale sang out to the boys to jump
off the rail. Johnnie did so, but Henry
( lung t j it. As he went over the spring
from the rail Bhot him through tlfe air a
distance of fifty feet, throwing him with
terrific force against the side of a cabin.
The unfortunate boy struck on his head
and shoulders, cracking the snakes out
of which tho building is constructed.
His father picked him up apparently
dead, but by hard work some signs of
recovered consciousness. Dr. STiinl
,,..r.t uml with th nhronts and
. - ... .
ank and Messrs. Hill, Glenn
Kirk, did everything in their power to
save the boy's life, but in spite of all
efforts he died at 11 o'clock Thursday
night. Henry was a real bright and
promising boy of It years, and his sad
death is a severe blow to his bereaved
parents. Ilev. Mr. Hope will preach the
funeral sermon at the Hale schoolhouse
HOKSKS ON THE MOVE.
A band of 130 hed from the John Day
country, owned by Mr. Gilman, passed
through Heppner last Sunday, bound
A great many horses have this spring
been driven out of the country tributary
to Willow creek, and we hear of several
more bands to go, but it is impossible to
give exact figures in the case.
Hon. J. B. Sperry has heard from his
band of horses, which left here for Mon
tana a few weeks ago in charge of Geo.
Ayers. They had reached Boise City,
aud were gettiug along all right. Mr.
Sperry intends to go through over the
Northern Pacific Railroad and get to
Montana ahead of the band, to super
intend their sale.
J. W. Greenwood, accompanied by E.
M. Barlow, started this week with a band
of 250 head of horses, which they will
drive to tho Canyon creek country, be
tween the Yellowstone and Musselshell
rivers, in Montana, where Mr. Green
wood has a horse-ranch. Some of these
horses were bought from Mr. Crawford,
on Butter Creek, at $10 a head. The
balance were bought of Chas. E. Hinton,
administrator of the estate of the late
John Hinton, to which they belonged, at
$41.50 a head. Considering the quality
of the horses, Mr. Greenwood secured
bargains in both purchases. They will
be driven by way of Boine City,
THE STEER CASE.
Tho rjliaunary examination before
S luire Mi llory last Friday in the case
of Goo. Olson and John Michaels,
charged w ith the larceny of a steor from
Thos. Morgan, resulted in their ac
quittal. It was shown in evidence that
r. very natural mistake had been made.
Mr. Michaels noticed a young steer on
the range branded Z. He afterwards
asked Mr. Nordyke whose steer that was,
and as ho speaks with a strong Gerrnnn
p.ncer.t, the latter gest-lenr.u understood
him to Hpeak of tho C brand, and told
him it w.iti Mr. Cochran's. Mr. Michaels
sent word to Mr. Cochran by tho stage
driver, and received permission to butch
er the steer. He then sent Geo. Olsen
after-it, and it was butchered before the
mistake was discovered. The court do
cided that it was all a mistake, and upon
Mr. Michaels paying Mr". Morgan $50 for
the steer, the ease- was dismissed. In
the absoucoof all Heppne. s professional
lawyers, C. M. Mallory conducted the
prosecution and James Hagar the de
fense. FAST SHEARING
A party of six shearers, consisting of
Harry Bennett, Ed. Cox, Jas. Farrier,
Carl Crow, Marion Knox and Henry
Scherzinger one day last week sheared
750 sheep at the ranch of Silas French,
on Dry Kock creek. This is an average
of 125 each, and if the supply of sheep
had not given out, they might have
brought the number up to 150 each. Ed.
Cox led the list with 152. If any other
ctjw outdone this work this season, we
would like to publish their figures.
Shearing is now over for this year, and
the boys are taking a well-earned rest.
