An incident of deep and unsolvable
mystery took place in the school the
last week. No one admit? having any
thing to do with it but from the cov
ert laughter and whisperings one
word of mysterious meaning has been
caught: PIE. A frenzied but vain
search was conducted by Mr. Smith
for this flaky product of the oven,
while two, higher in authority, are
connected with its disappearance.
Two empty plates were found in
the Domestic Science room. A strange
handwriting has been discovered on
these plates. When a scribe was
brought in who could decipher the
"handwriting on the plate" it was
found to contain five words: "Thanks
very much. Mr. Smith."

lone Farmers Hard Hit
ByN. W. Bank Failure
From what information we are able
to gather, very many farmers of the
lone section are facing heavy finan
cial loss because of the recent liqui
dation of the Northwestern National
bank of Portland.
Because of the failure, recently, of
the bank of lone, a large amount of
collateral fell into the hands of the
Northwestern National, Portland cor
respondent of the lone institution.
The Portland bank had adopted a pol
icy of leniency toward these creditors
and was extending them further fi
nancial aid in order that they might
carry on and harvest their crops,
which give promise of being abund
ant. As matters now stand, however,
this aid has been withdrawn, and
these people are up against quit
ting, unless some means are found
to help them out. Just where
this aid is to come from is not appar
ent at this time, and the outlook for
these people is anything but, bright.

Facts are elusive, and information which we think we have at our finger
tips often eludes us. It's great fun digging into the recesses of our minds
for those hidden bits of knowledge. That's why everybody is playing this

Heppner and Lexington to Clash.
The Heppner high school baseball
team will meet Lexington in their
first game of the season. This game
will be played on the Lexington field.
A large number of players have been
turning out this season and although
the team has not yet been chosen, this
game is expected to be very snappy
and interesting, due to the fact that
Heppner and Lexington are very close
rivals and usually play the closest
and fastest games of the season.

THE STRAY DOG AND
From State Board of Health.
The stray dog is the main factor in
in the spread of rabies or hydropho
bia. The "mad" or rabid dog is in
fected with rabies, and during the
"furious" or biting stage of this dis
ease will terrorize a community. In
Oregon the stray dog may be attacked
by rabid coyotes. Stray dogs fre
quently bite the house dog and in
this way the infection may enter the
home. Rabies is communicated from
a rabid or mad animal through a
wound usually produced by biting.
Rabies is a rapidly fatal paralytic in
fection. Man always contracts the
disease from some lower animal, com
monly the dog.
In civilized communities doge are
subject to license and definite rules
for control so that measures may
promptly be taken when rabies has
been introduced into the community.
Rabies may be controlled and even
extinguished by intelligent means di
rected towards the eradication of
rabies in dogs.
The chief requirement for the con
trol of rabies is the impounding of
all strange dogs and the proper su
pervision of all licensed dogs. All
dogs should be licensed and required
to wear a tag, and under certain cir
cumstances restrained by a chain or
leash. Strange dogs should be im
pounded and ownerless dogs killed.
It is the stray dog that keeps rabies
alive. Muzzling and other mechanical
measures of restraint become neces
sary when rabies is known to exist in
a community. It is a mistake to kill
a dog immediately after it has bitten
someone. The dog should be shut up
for ten days and watched carefully
to see if symptoms of rabies develop.
Owners should be held legally re
sponsible for damages inflicted by
dogs. Education of the dog-owning

The dog can be immunized against
rabies. The immunization of all dogs
when licensed and the impounding or
killing of all stray dogs should ef
fectively control rabies.
Bites by rabid animals or animals
suspected of being rabid may be cau
terized by fuming nitric acid.. The
method is helpful if used within forty-eight
hours, but the earlier the
better. In cases of bites on the face
there is especial need for immediate
treatment with fuming, nitric acid,
for the action of rabies virus may be
so rapid that the Pasteur treatment
will not have time to take full effect.
Properly used nitric acid should not
cause scarring. Every person bitten
by a rabid animal, or an animal sus
pected of being rabid, should take
the Pasteur treatment.
