The editor of this paper spoke kind
ly to Willis Stewart the other day
and inquired of him why we should
be suffering such a long dry spell,
when rain is sd much needed. We
could not understand why he was not
busy, but he informs ua that he re
signed the position of Heppner's
weather prophet a year or more ago,
leaving that work to Lum Gordon.
The latter gentleman is away in the
country looking after a band of sheep,
so we have no one on the job. ' Willis
seems to think that after serving
faithfully for so many years, he
should be entitled to a rest, besides
there were a lot of people who ap
parently thought he was not doing the
job up right, hence we shall have to
suffer the consequences. . It's a cinch
that someone should get busy and
order a big rain; we need it right
now. The mud snow storm of Tues
day morning helps, but more mois
ture would be welcome.
Arnold Pieper was doing business
in town on Saturday. He thinks that
his family, as well as a number of
their neighbors, were rather badly
stung recently by a picture outfit that
was here taking orders for enlarge
. ments. One bunch came along and
took the orders, securing the con
tracts and then another party made
the deliveries which were not up to
the representations made by the
parties making the first visit, but the
scheme was so cleverly worked that
those accepting the pictures had no
comeback, and they are charging the
cost up to "experience." It is stated
that this outfit is now working over
in the Yakima country.
