Livestock Exposition, to be held in
Portland, Oct. 29th to Nov. 6th, in
clusive, is now being distributed. Ex
tra copies may be had from General
Manager O. M. Plummer, 211 N. W.
Bank Building, Portland.
The total amount of cash prizes of
fered in all the various departments
approximates $100,000 and is divided
about as follows: $11,000 in the beef
division, to which the breed associa
tions from the various parts of the
country have added $7,000; the dairy
department $11,800 in addition to
about $2,000 by the breed associa

fat classes, roughly around $5,000; in
the Horse Show department, which is

gating several thousand dollars given
by the association itself. The dis
trict this year will probably com
prise Oregon, Washington, Idaho and
Alaska with perhaps some other ter
ritory taken in.
The same superintendents, practic
ally, have been selected for the com
ing show. As a matter of fact, the
heads of departments of the Pacific
International are changed very little,
which assures a smooth, splendid
show year after year.
With bumper crops all over the
country, and livestock people begin
ning to feel the increases which are
slowly taking place, it is a foregone
conclusion that the Pacific Interna
tional this year will live up to its
motto "Bigger and Better."
This great livestock uniMersity of
this Pacific slope country has become
a part of agriculture in its very best
sense and has rooted deep in tlie
hearts of the people of this great
Western empire, with the result that
each year shows a slowly increasing
attendance and a better understand
ing of its value to this great country.
Many people are availing them
telves of this week as one of vacation
and are coming from all parts of the
Pacific slope territory, as well as
from the far East. It is truly inter
national in its character as exhibits
from across the border, year after
year, Indicate. Newspaper men from
all parts of the territory are making
more and more an effort to attend the
show and report it in their community
upon their return homo.
Railroads everywhere are making a
rate of a fare and a third for the
round trip and exhibit stock is han
dled free one way. Early inquiries
should be made of railroad agents in
your home town, to get particulars of
relling dates and other pertinent in
formation. CHURCH SERVICE AUGUST 28.

NEW SCHOOL GYM
TO BE READY BY
Few Alterations Made in New
Plans; Building Will Accom
modate Large Number.
As Bchool opens jn Heppner Sep
tember 5, many persons will be in
terested to know that work on the
new auditorium-gymnasium for the
Heppner public schools has been pro
gressing for two weeks, and forms
for the side walls are now being
erected. The building is expected to
be ready for use by the middle of
October, in time for the beginning of
the basketball season.
Under the specifications for which
the contract was let the building will
be 124 feet 10 inches in length and
(4 feet wide, of concrete construc
tion. The front elevation the long
way of the building will face the pres
ent school building. The redrawn
plans eliminated two classrooms in
the basement, and moved the shower
rooms to the ground floor, thus elim
inating any underground construction.
A library room is included, however,
and as soon as the building is finished
the present school library will be
moved to the new building as will
also the high school music classes
thus releasing two rooms now occu
pied by these departments in the
classroom building. Professor Bu-
xess believes that the classroom con
gestion will thus be relieved suffi
ciently for many years to come.
The gymnasium floor will be of
standard size, and the building will

the basketball court may be obtained
from any place in the auditorium.
As the auditorium will conveniently
seat 500 people, large crowds will be
enabled to witness any inside athletic
contests. With this building, Hepp
ner will be able to put in a strong
bid for championship tournaments
which draw many people from the
Fearing that there may have been
some misunderstanding still after his
statement of last week, concerning
age of pupils for school attendance,
Professor Burgess wishes to further
emphasize that the Oregon school law
makes attendance compulsory upon
all youth between the ages of 6 and
18, unless they have completed the
eighth grade curricula before the
last mentioned age. If there is any
doubt whatever about the full con
tent of the Jaw, interested persons
should get in touch with Superinten
dent Burgess or Helen M. Walker,
county school superintendent.
Reports Many Fires In
Heppner Forest District
While in the city from the Ditch
Creek ranger station on Friday, For
est Ranger Clark reported numerous
fires in the mountains the past week,
He estimates that five of these fires
were started by smokers and one -by
on abandoned camp fire. This denotes
some carelessness on the part of
those visiting the i'orest nea and Mr.
Clark states that unless there is more
care manifested on the part of the
campers and others, it will be neces
sary to close this section of the Uma
tilla forest until the fire season is
past. A little care is all that is nce-
essary, and the rules concerning
jmoking and camp fires should be ob
served thereby making the fire haz
ard practically nill. No serious out
break has been reported, and some
tires have been the result of light
ning, but the continued dry weather
only increases the danger and re
quires more care and vigilence on the
art of those who find it necessary
t visit the mountains at this sear.on.
75TH BIRTHDAY OBSERVED.
The seventy-fifth birthday of Mrs.
O. F. Thomson, pioneer woman of
Butter creek, was celebrated in a most
enjoyable manner at her home last
Saturday. Mrs. Thomson was invited
to dinner at the home of her daugh

o'clock she received a telephone call
Eaying there was some one at her
home who wished to see her. Upon
her arrival she found her home filled
with neighbors and other friends who
greeted her with wishes for a happy
In speaking of the event Mrs. Thom
son said that she enjoyed it exceed
ingly and was very grateful to all
who participated. More than 60 peo
ple were present, several of whom
Mrs. Thomson had not seen for some
time. Delicious refreshments were
served, Mrs. Thomson received manv
lovely birthday gifts. All her many
friends hope that she may see many
huppy returns of the day.

Real Texas Longhorns
To Be Used at Rodeo
The toughest steers obtainable will
be used at the Heppner Rodeo, Sep
tember 22-3-4 the real Texas long
horns. C. W. McNamer, president of
the association, left for Pendleton
today to close a deal for ten of these
animals from the Pendleton Round
Up. The Round-Up association buys
them by the carload direct from the
These longhorns will be used in
the bulldogging events, a new feature
to be introduced at the Rodeo. Their
long horns, from which they derive
their name, make them especially
suitable for this purpose. For the
steer roping of past years, the Rodeo
used steers off the local ranges. These
are a different type from the long
horns, being softer and more easily
hurt. The longhorns are bigger
boned, brawnier, and it is almost im
possible to injure them.
In fact it takes a good man to
throw one of them, as anyone will
testify who has witnessed these per
formances at the Pendleton show.
This feature will supplant the steer
roping of former years in which so
many animals were injured. The calf
roping, however, will take place as be
fore. This sport has created much
fun for the stands in years past. The
calves are elusive to the extreme,
many a roper missing his target, and
the calves are soft boned, hence not
so easily injured.
The Rodeo bucking string will be
ounded up by September 8 and try-
outs will take place a week or so be
fore the show starts, Mr. iVicNamer
states. Announcement of reserved
seat sales will be made next week.

The Illinois farm boy whose slogan
"It can be done," brought him success
and made him the greatest leader in
American industries. As Chairman
of the Board rf Directors of the U.
S. Steel Corporation he directed the
world's greatest industrial unit, a two
and a half billion dollar corporation.
He was buried last week at Wheaton,
111., age 80.
Increasing In Oregon
A steady increase in potato certifi
cation with consequent better stands
and increased yields has been noted
throughout the state by G. R. Jlyslop,
chief in farm crops at Oregon Agri
cultural college, who has just made
in extended trip througn the princi
pal districts in which fields entered
were given their first inspection.
"More fields are entered for certifi
cation and more are passn.g the first
inspection, though some have been
turned down because of too much dis
ease," reported Professor Hyslop.
"Some fields turned down proved to
be from poor seed sorted out of cer
tified stock. Others are from good
certified seed but the grower failed
U, pull out the few diseased plants
in time to prevent spread. Most of
the fields turned down, however, are
from common lots. Practically all
lots passing are from seed tracing to
recent certified stock."
Some violations of the certified seed
law were discovered by Professor
Hyslop. With increased demand for
this seed, some unscrupulous dealers
and growers have sold seed as certi
fied when it had failed to pass first
inspectoin. A field from such seed
this year was found to be more than
50 per cent diseased. To sell uncer
tified seed as certified or to sell certi
fied seed without the official tag on
each sack is a violation of law pun
ishable by both fine and imprison
ment. An unusual amount of blackleg was
found in the fields this year. It
causes a dwarfing of the plants and
a yellowing of leaves, while the stem
turns black and rotten. Standard
corrosive sublimate treatment is the
only control found effective for this,
and it is being recommended for both
certified and common seed fields.
Large cut pieces or whole seed is
giving the best yields while four or
five inch planting is better than more
or less. Two man planter stands are
best, while late cultivation where the
field is free of weeds and has a good
mulch is useless or even harmful if
too deep, says Professor Hyslop.
A meeting of the executive board
of the Heppner Public Library asso
ciation will be held Monday evening,
Sept. 5. It is important that all mem
bers be present. Called by the pres-oent.
WRITTEN IN THE
Deceased Head of Steel Corpora
tion Had Humble Beginning
on Middle Western Farm.
From the cornfield of a poor Illin
ois farm some sixty years ago came
a lanky-raw-boned youth, looking city
wardand for the opportunity to hew
cut a modeit success in life. His
passing last week caused the world's
present-day leading capitalists to
pause, pay tribute to his greatness
and agree that through the ages no
man ever had conceived greater in
dustrial plans nor the driving force
t.o make them successful.
That farm boy was Judge E. H.
Gary, chairman of the board of di
rectors of the United States Steel
Corporation, a typical American.
From the president of the United
States down to the most humble
worker in the corporation's great steel
mills throughout the ration, Judge
Gary was known as the grand old
man of American industry. He was
active and in absolute control of the
great steei corporation up until his
death at 80 years of age.
Today on some American farm
there possibly is some boy or youth
who in the next sixty or seventy
years may climb to greater success
than came to Elbert Gary, as great as
it was because truly the United
States is the land of opportunity
where the sky is the only limit to
achievement and ability knows no re
strictions. Early Yeara on Farm
Born on a farm near Wheaton, 111.,
nearly 81 years ago, Judge Gary, in
early youth, worked with his father
tilling the coil in summer, going to
bchool in winter. If was the farm
which gave him that robust constitu
tion that was with him to the end.
Finishing grade school, he studied at
Wheaton College, then to the Uni
versity of Chicago Law School and
oack to Wheaton to practice. Twice
mayor of Wheaton, then county at
torney and then judgef the district
court he finally broil- home town
ties to move to Chicago and take up
the practice of corporation law.
Eventually he became counsel for the
Illinois Steel Corporation and soon
guided the formation of one of the
early steel combines, the American
Wire and Steel Company.
His organizing abilities attracted
the attention of J. P. Morgan and in
1898 he was called to New York to
form the Federal Steel Company, an
other combine. Three years later1
Morgan gave Gary the money to or
ganize the daddy, of them all--the
United States Steel Corporation the
first billion dollar corporation the
world had ever known.
Built With Earnings
Today that corporation is a two
and one-half billion dollar organiza
tion, but is perhaps an actual three
or four billion dollar corporation
built up out of earnings under the
leadership of that former Illinois
farm boy. It was done without
mulcting the public or crushing com
petitors. When the government started its
dissolution suit against the steel cor
poration fiftee nyears ago, it was un
able to prove that any complaint had
been made to prosecution by any com
petitor, customer or employee as to
its methods, prices or treatment in
business. The suit was dismissed.
Judge Gary's working slogan al
ways was: "It can be done."
When asked recently if he had ever
smoked Judge Gary said:
"Yes for about a year and a half
while studying law at Chicago But
I quit. I returned home to the farm
at Wheaton for a visit and when I
kissed my mother she said: "I love
you but not as much as I used to
with that tobacco smell on your
breath.' Then I quit even though
it was hard but I haven't smoked
Wheat Leaders Come From
It was just a glimpse of the human
side of Judge Gary and it reflected
the value of good home environment
still prevailing in the American
farm homes and which, no doubt, ac
counts for the success of so many
farm born and reared boys who have
turned to the city for new worlds to
It has been stated that seventy per
cent of the nation's leaders today, in
trades and professions, are sons of
poor parents and a big majority of
them from the farms and small towns.
When Jesus went back to Nazareth
His own city, He was rejected. But

investigation? "Rejecting Jesus" will
