Joseph Hugh Gemmell was born
August 8, 1862, in Wigtonshire, Scot
land, and died at Heppner, Oregon,
March 25th, 1926, at the age of 73
years, 7 months and 17 days. He
came to America in the year 1889,
and with his mother resided for a time
in Muscateen county, Iowa. In 1879
he was united in marriage to Emma
ma A., four sons and fourteen grand
Thomas A. Gaskill of Corning, Iowa.
To this union 8 children were born,
four of whom died in childhood. Mr.
Gemmell with his family came to this
state in 1886 and settled on Butter
creek in what is now a part of Mor
row county, where they resided for a
period of four years. They then re
moved to Lexington where they lived
for seven years and seven years moro
they spent on a homestead out from
Lexington, following which period of
time they removed to Heppner and
have made their home here since.
He is survived by his widow, Em
ma A, four sons and fourteen grand
children. The sons are Arthur W.
and Paul M. of Heppner, Chester H. of
Helix and Walter H. of The Dalles,
all of whom were present with their
families to attend the last sad rites.
One brother, James Gemmell, of Cor
ning, Iowa, also survives.
Mr. Gemmell was an honored pion
eer of this county and in his long
years of residence here was highly
esteemed because of his excellent
qualities of manhood. When but a
young man he united with the church
ind all through the year? he was a
faithful and devout Christian, ever
standing for the best things of life
and upholding the tenets of his faith.
He was a kind and devoted husband
Funeral services were held at the
Christian church in this city, of which
the diseased was a member, Saturday
afternoon, and were largely attended
by his neighbors and friends. Milton
W. Bower, pastor, delivered a short
and appropriate address and the re
mains were then borne to the ceme
tery on the hill where they were laid
to rest in the family plot.
YOUNG COUPLE MARRIED.
The marriage of Guy L. Abrogast
and Neva Brown was solemnized at
the home of the bride's parents, Mr.
and Mrs. George Cason, in this city
on Sunday evening, March 28th, by
Milton W. Bower, pastor of the Chris
tian church. The bride is a native
daughter of Heppner and Mr. Abro
gast formerly resided in Grant coun
ty but has been making his home In
this city for the past year. The new
lyweds will continue their residence
here for the present, at least.
The Misses Ruth Tash and Leora
Devin arrived at Heppner on Friday
from Monmouth and spent several
days with the home folks, returning
to their school duties on Tuesday.
They were accompanied by Durward
Tash, who is a student at 0. A. C.
After spending several weeks here
during the lambing season at the
ranch of W. B. Barratt & Son, Mr,
Barratt will return to his Portland
home tomorrow. He will be accom
panied to the city by Mrs. Garnet Bar
ratt and the children, and Mrs. W. V,

Six Towns Form Tri
County Baseball League
The Tri-County Baseball league,
composed of teams from Ilermiston,
Echo, Umatilla, Boardman, lone and
Arlington, wai forrred at a meeting
of representatives held at Umatiila
Monday evening. A schedule of ten
games will be played, beginning April
11, giving each team a game at home
and a game away from home with ev
ery other team. Schedule cards will
soon be out which will keep he fans
informed where the different teams
will be playing.
lone will open the season at Arling
ton and the first league game at lone
will be against the Echo team, April
18. Fred Roberts has signed up with
lone as pitcher for the season and
with Dutch, Werner and Vic Riet
mann holding down the bases, Adams
at short, Hoskins catching, Eubanks,
Bristow and Arch Cochran regular
outfielders and a number of the
younger element as reserve players,
lone is assured of one of the strong
est teams to wear their colors in
many years, it is reported.
The Cayuse Indian team from Ca
yuse will play at lone Easter Sunday
and a good game is assured as the
Indian boys beat the Pendleton Blue
Mountain League team last Sunday.
The initial baseball game of the
season on the local diamond Sunday
afternoon ended in disaster for the
locals, though the game was hot as
loose as the score might indicate.
Boardman appeared on the field a lit
tle late, and the afternoon being a
bit cool, anyway, the game did not
start with too much "zipper."
Boardman gleaned five runs the
first two innings, then were held
scoreless until the seventh. After that
they just took a little bating practice.
Heppner's lone run came in the ninth
when Finch's two-bagger scored Smith
In the fielding game the local's
played good ball, nabbing a majority
of the possible chances. The trouble
in this department was that the
Boardman batters kept their bingles
in unguarded territory to a large ex
tent. Carl Cason on third played a
stellar game, grabbing some hard
chances and making some mighty neat
pegs to first. B. R. Finch looked good
In center field, and started his bat
ting average well up in the jwrent
On the whole Heppner was weakest
at the bat, which accounted for their
The other Heppner players were:
McArthur, catcher;, Merritt, "Slim,"
brakeman, pitchers; Austin Smith,
first base; Gene Ferguson, Bill Hos-
kinn, second base; Paul Aiken, short
stop; Francis Doherty, left field;
"Ole" Eisenberg, Gene Ferguson, right
Heppner will journey to Boardman
next Sunday for a return game, and
with numerous changes in the line
up, hope, to make it warmer for the
boys of the sand country.

MAYOR SAYS, START
Make your preparations now for
Clean-Up Day. Monday, April 12, ad
monishes Mayor Noble. Get the work
lined up, and if it looks like too much
to do in one day, start it at once.
The big thing,, he says, is to have the
rubbish and trash in containers and
put in the street where the city haul
ers can find it on that day.
"We should all have a pride in the
appearance of our little city," the
mayor said, "and now with lawns,
flowery and trees coming forth in all
their glory, how appropriate it is
that we have the surroundings in
keeping with their beauty. We have
n good town; we believe there is none
better; but it is a long way from per
fect. Why not strive for perfection
in cleanliness, when all it takes is the
expenditure of a little muscular ef
fort, which itself is a mighty good
thing this kind of weather in com
batting spring fever?"
Weeds, rubbish heaps, and all
should be obliterated, making a clean
sweep, is the word put forth, and
special burning permits will be issued
for this day to the end that nothing
may remain of a deterrent effect on
the city's beauty. Clean up the park
ing, the back yards and alleys, as well
as vacant lots and front yards. The
health, sanitation and civic pride of
the community demand unanimous co
operation on Clean-Up Day.
CANDIDATES VISIT HEPPNER.
I. L. Patterson of Eola, Oregon, and
Roy W. Ritner of Pendleton, candi
dates respectively for governor and
joint representative, were visitors in
Heppner for a short time on Saturday
afternoon. Mr. Patterson was just
completing a trip over the eastern
part of the state and expressed him
self as well pleased with the outlook,
in fact he fully expects to receive the
republican nomination for governor,
and feels that he has made a very fa
vorable impression upon the elector
ate in this part of the stnte. Mr. Pat
terson made it a point to see many of
the voters in this city, though his
stay here was short. Mr. Ritner, who
aspires to be joint representative
lrom Morrow and Umatilla counties,
states that his campaign, while yet
young, is coming along satisfactorily.
ne expects opposition in the fall elec
tion, however, as Joseph N. Scott of
Pendleton, will seek the democratic
nomination, so he understands.
MR. STEIWER TO VISIT.
Fred Steiwer of Pendleton, who is
now making a tour of the state in the
interests of his candidacy for the U.
S. senatorship, is now in Southern
Oregon. It is understood that Mr.
Steiwer will be able to spend one day
and evening in this county and the
date for his visit here is the 22nd of
this month. Oregon being such a
large state, it is not possible for can
didates who attempt to cover the ter
ritory to spend a grcnt deal of time
in one section; however, Mr. Steiwer
is desirous of meeting as many of
the republican voters of Morrow coun
ty ns possible and on his visit here
will try to visit the most prominent
parts of the county. Further an
nouncement will be made regarding
this visit of the prospective senator,
and a public meeting will likely be
arranged for Heppner on the eve
ning Mr. Steiwer is here.

Mrs. Eugene Campbell
Honored on Anniversary
On Saturday afternoon, March 27,
occurred a very unique celebration,
the occasion being the fiftieth anni
versary of the wedding of Mr. and
Mrs. E. F. Campbell of this city.
The parlors of the Methodist Com
munity church were festively decor
ated with gay spring flowers, where
the women's organization of the
church, with many neighbors and
friends and Mrs, Campbell's delightful
family of girls had Aid ready to
surprise and honor the sweet little
bride of fifty years ago with a real
"Bride's Maid Party." That she had
become aware of their intentions de
tracted nothing from the enjoyment
of the occasion.
The tea table was resplendant in
yellow and white, in the center of
which a large bowl of daffodils and
narcissis was flanked on all sides by
golden candles, whose soft glow fell
over the merry-makers with a gentle
radiance like the influence of her
Mrs. Mattie Adkins and Mrs. Ethel
M. Alford poured, while the dainty
refreshments were served by Miss
Thelma Miller, Miss Charlotte New-
house, Mrs. Ted Stiles and Mrs. Thom
A quaint conceit was to adorn the
bride in veil and orange blossoms,
and place in her hand a dainty bo
quet which she afterwards threw to
the girls in the group. Miss Harriet
Case secured the blossoms but gen
erously shared them with the other
envious damsel who strove to obtain
at least a spray. As Miss Olive Wil
liamson, she was married March 27,
1876, at Andover, N. Y., to Eugene
Francis Campbell, the Rev. David Hut-
ton being the officiating minister.
Sincere words of love and apprecia
tion were spoken, with hearty wishes
for many, many years of joy and hap
piness, and as a token of the esteem
in which Mrs. Campbell is held, there
was presented to her from her nu
merous friends, many of whom were
detained at home by illness, an ex
quisitely carved cameo brooch. Mrs.
Campbell responded in a gracious
manner for the pleasure her friends
had afforded her. All that was need
ed to make the occasion complete was
the presence of the three children,
Mrs. P. A. Anderson of Portland, Mrs.
Willis McCarty of The Dalles, and
L. C. Campbell of Pendleton. Thore
being no time, after friends became
aware of the date of their anniver
sary, to secure the children's attend
once. The following poem, composed for
the occasion by Mrs. Alford, was read
by Mrs. Bramer:
Fifty years did you siiy? Ah, surely
That's a very long time to be married
Fifty years on one job? Why, its too
much to ask;
'Tis too long for us moderns to stick
to one task.
Fifty years, why I scarce can believe
whnt. I'm told.
That's long enough to make any young
brute seem old,
But the beautiful spirit of Youth
On her soft velvet cheeks like the
blush of the rose.
While tho straight queenly form mov
ing graceful and spry
The almond tree's blossoms most
Ah, there's fnith, hope and cournge,
and holy desire
Which tlfe years have not quenched,
only brightened their fire.
Fifty years Golden years, fleeting

Group pictures for the Hehisch
have been taken, developed, and final
selections made during the past week.
Mr. Sigsbee took advantage of the
sunny days the end of last week to
photograph all of them, and a regular
schedule was followed vn snapping the
different organizations and groups.
Miss Lawrence is still confined in
the hospital, although she is making
constant improvement over the at
tack of flu-pneumonia with which she
has been ill for the past two weeks.
Mrs. C. W. McNamer is still taking
Miss Lawrence's classes.
The Spanish-American war was re
called to the minds of members of the
American history class in a most vivid
manner Tuesday morning, when M. L.
Case, a veteran of that war, talked
to them of the more interesting high
lights of it, and showed them numer
ous trophies which he collected dur
ing the course of the combat.
Wednesday evening of last week
members of the senior class and sev
eral of the high school teachers rode
up past the forks of Willow creek and
spent the evening around a huge bon
fire. Wcinies, coffee, sandwiches, and
marshmallows were consumed in great
numbers. Several skits taken from
the recent operetta were given, and
then everybody played games until
time to pile in the straw-lined truck
and leave for home.
Monday was visiting day in the en
tire school, from first grade in the
elementary division to the senior
courses in high school. Twenty or
twenty-five rural teachers took ad
vantage of the opportunity to spend
the day observing methods and pro
cedure in the largest school in the
county. Many of them expressed
themselves as feeling that the contact
with other classes similar to their
own, and with other teachers who had
much the same problems as them
selves, was extremely beneficial. Af
ter the close of school in the after
noon tea was served in the domestic
science laboratory to the visitors.
The need for financial support of
the Hehisch, official high school pub
lication, was depicted most forcefully
in a pantomime presented before the
student body Wednesday afternoon of
last week. Ellis Thomson, as Mr. H.
E. Hisch, lay on his denth bed. Crock
et Sprouls, labeled "Doc. Burgess"
was unable to offer relief to the suf
ferer, despite a liberal application of
pills and potions. Finally the suf
ferer emitted several deep breaths
and then lay perfectly quiet, as Duck
Lee, attired in feminine costume,
wept profusely at the bedside. Final
ly Leonard Schwarz, disguised as
"Doc. Student Body," arrived, and not
a moment too soon. Prompt doses of
"Student Support" administered from
an immense medicine bottle by means
of a wooden spoon, proved effectual,
and the curtain fell as Mr. H. E. Hisch
rose from his bed with a mighty lunge
and capered about the room.
At the conclusion of the stunt,
about forty of the high school stu
dents were so touched by the plight
of the paper that they pledged them
selves to sell two copies of the annual
LITTLE BABY DIES.
A baby boy was born to Mr. and
Mrs. Claud Keithley at their home in
Blythe, California, on March 12th,
but was claimed by death when three
days old. At the time of tho birth
of the baby, Mrs. Keithley was suf
fering from flu pneumonia and her
sickness no duobt affected the health
of the child. The sad news was re
ceived by Mr. and Mrs. Oscar Keith
ley of Eight Mile, where Mr. and Mrs.
Claud Keithley formerly lived.
OF PENDLETON TO
BE IN RACE AGAIN
First Said He Would Not Run;
Changes Mind and Now Throws
His Hat Into the Ring.
Last week announcement coming
out from Pendleton was to the effect
that Senator Henry J. Taylor of that
city would not again be a candidate
for this office, his reason being on
account of poor health. However, he
has reconsidered, and according to
Monday's East Oregonin, Mr. Tay
lor will get into the running and be
come the democratic Candidate for
nomination to succeed himself as
joint snator from Union, Umatilla
and Morrow counties.
In response to earnest demands
from local friends of both poit)cal
parties and requests of the same sort
from Union county, Senator H. J.
Taylor has returned to tile race for
the joint senatorship from Umatilla,
Union and Morrow counties, states
the Pendleton paper. Several days
ago Senator Taylor attempted to
withdraw from the race but he has
encountered so much protest against
that course that he has reconsidered
the matter. Saturday Mr. Taylor told
friends he would run if drafted and
at a meeting of democrats held at the
Commercial association rooms Satur
day evening the draft act was applied
Much of the support for Senator
Taylor is based upon his record at
the last two legislative sessions. He
was a supporter of the income tax
and as a member of the ways and
means committee was a pronounced
advocate of economy in state ex
penses. His committee slashed bud
get estimates to the extent of $1,
060,000 and thus had much to do with
reducing the state tax levy. He also
championed the Beed loan act which
did much to aid eastern Oregon far
mers following the severe freezeout
in the winter of 1924, and was an
ardent supporter of what he con
ceived to be the interests of his dis
Senator Taylor is preparing to file
immediately for the democratic nom
ination and announces the following
as his platform.
I am in favor of an income tax.
I favor an Eastern Oregon Normal
I will stand to protect the Round
Up. I am in favor of completing the
highway system and paying road
bonds at maturity.
I favor readjustment of licenses
allowing reduction on used cars.
I have no pet bills to offer.
I favor rigid economy in transact

K. OF P. BALL TEAM
Looking to the advancement of the
national sport in Heppner as well as
a means of amusement for a few of
the fine spring afternoons this part
of the country is now enjoying, the
Knights of Pythias lodge of this city
decided at its meeting Tuesday night
to put a ball organization in the field
for local honors. W. W. Smead was
named manager of the Doric No. 20
boys, and reports a "go-gettum" line
up. One idea in forming a ball aggrega
tion, it is said, is to get a "twilight"
series of gnmes started, which it is
believed could be made the means of
considerable sport for a few weeks.
In line with this idea Manager Smead
has issued a challenge to any other
ball organization for a game any
time that can be conveniently ar
ranged. A tentative line-up has been
announced as follows:
Earl Merritt, pitcher; E. J. Keller,
catcher; Austin Smith, first base; Ed
Clark, second base; Carl Cason, third
base; Jap Crawford, short stop; John
Hiatt, Lee Sprinkle, Allan Case, out
fielders. Many other names are on
the list, which stand a good chance
of being on the line-up.
ENGAGEMENT IS ANNOUNCED.
At Longview, Wash., during the past
week the announcement of the en
gagement of Miss Dora Cutsforth of
Lexington to Mr. Harold Cox, for
merly of the same city, was made.
Miss Cutsforth was visiting at the
home of Mr. and Mrs. D. A. Cox in
Longview while on 'her Easter vaca
tion from the State Normal at Mon
mouth. She will graduate from the
normal school this year. The exact
date of the wedding, however, is not
yet set, but will take place soon after
school closes. Miss Cutsforth is the
daughter of T. W. Cutsforth of Lex
ington, and Mr. Cox, who is a son of
Mr. and Mrs. O. J. Cox, also of Lex
ington, is at present engaged in the
electrical department of the Long
Hell company at Longview,

A Missing Comet.
Five thousand canaries, forty pet
monkeys, 150 parrots, two boa con

La Rochefoucauld says, "Neither
the sun nor death can be looked at
with a steady eye." That applies to
men, not animals. The eagle and
others look at the sun steadily, and
all look calmly at Death, not knowing
he is there.
Men find comfort in the belief that
there is something for them beyond
death. Animals do not need that com
fort. Here is old-fashioned news. A bril
