MRS. A. T. HEREIM, Correspondent
A group of the East End women
entertained at a pleasant priy on
Wednesday afternoon of last week
at the Mrs. Lee Mead home. About
SO ladies were in attendance. Mrs.
L. C. Cooney was the inspiration of
the party, having recently joined the
ral.ks of motherhooi! via tha adaption
route. Since Miss Mary Msxine r.r
rived fullly clothed tni with all t'ne
accoutrements of babyhood the us
ual stork shower was omitted and in
stead a beautiful Esmond blanket
was presented to Mis. Cooney by i'.ie
ladies present. A clever rhyme writ
ten by Mrs. Mead was read as the
blanket was given to Mrs. Cooney
who was much surprised, having had
no idea that the party was given for
her. The time was spent in making
newspaper articles and some amazing
results were obtained. Mrs. Hum
phrey received first prize for the best
free hand cutting of a baby and Mrs.
Lahmondicr and Mrs. Frank Cramer
had the best looking newspaper chess
made within a stated length of time.
Refreshments were served by the
hos' esses, who were Mesdames Mead,
King, C. S. Calkins, Ray Brown end
A. T. Hereim.
When the epidemic had apparently
subsided and it was thought there
were no new cases of smallpox, three
more fell victims to the scourge and
school was closed and a ban placed
on all public gatherings last Friday,
by the health officer. Ono of the
Root boys, Albert Boardman and Ir
ma Broyles are the unfortunates.
Most of the teachers returned to their
homes, Mrs. Wilson going to Walla
Walla, Miss Silver to Astoria and
Miss Beougher to Albtny. It is hop
ed that no more cases will develop.
Warner's motored to Pendleton
twice last week, going up to see a
physician about Mr. Warner who has
been ill with Brights disease.
On Wednesday evening an interest
ing meeting was held at the church
when about 25 men of the project
were seated around the table and par
took of a delicious dinner of which
chicken and noodles was the piece
d'resistance with salads, pie and cof
fee to help fill in. Rev. D. A. Thomp
son of Portland was the speaker of
the evening and ho based his talk
on the home, school, church and obe
dience to the laws as the four pillars
of life. Rev. Swogger was the toast
master and toasts were responded to
by several of Boardman's prominent
men. Such occasions make for better
harmony in the community and the
men present rather enjoyed the nov
elty of a stray dinner as there are
few of such affairs given here. Only
enough women were present to serve
the dinner. These were Mesdames
Messenger, Johnson, Flickinger, Faler,
Smith, Blayden and Klitz.
The Ladies Aid play. "Her Son's
Sweetheart," which was scheduled for
Saturday night had to be indefinitely

members of the far.iily had the small
ne do not know what the doctors
of the presort day think of cream
of tartar as a means of prevention
of smallpox, but a number of peo
ple here have been tuing it. Accord
ing to the directions one should dis
solve 1 oi. of cream of tartar in boil
ing water and drink it at frequent
intervals when cold. At least it would
do no harm to try. Vaccination is
of course the safest and surest meth
od of preventing and eventually elim
inating the disease.
Of interest to local people was the
meeting hold last week at Pendleton

corporation. The pulpit at Stanfield
was declared vacant, Rev. Schnable
