FAMILY ENJOYS REUNION.
A family reunion was hid at the
home of Mrs. A. Reaney at Lexington
Saturday, when there gathered a
large number of the children of Mrs.
Reaney, with their families, and a
genuine, old-fashioned good time was
had. Among those present were Mr.
nd Mrs, N. S. Phelps, their daughter
and husband, Mr. and Mrs. Walter
BaUtrum, of Kelso; Mr. and Mrs.
Shelly Baldwin and daughter Olivia,
of Heppner; Mr. and Mrs. Elmer
Baldwin, of Lexington; Mr. and Mrs.
Wm. Lunceford and two daughters, of
Kelso, Wash.; Lawrence Reaney and
family, of Lexington; Arthur Parker
and wife, of Heppner; Mrs. Frank
Parker of Gold Hill, Ore., and Mr.
and Mrs. Carl Miller, Lexington. Mrs.
Reaney was made very happy in hav
ing this many of her children at
home on this occasion, but was a lit
tle disappointed that Mr. and Mrs.
Shelby Lee failed to arrive from their
home in California, as htey were ex
pecting to come to Lexington for
Thanksgiving at the home of Mrs.
PHEASANTS SAID DEPLETED,
According to several local sports
men and farmers, the Chinese pheas
ants, present in this county in large
numbers before the season opened,
were practically exterminated during
the last hunting season. This is said
to have been due to the change of
schedule which permitted a large
number of sportsmen to hunt nearly
every day of the season whereas in
past years when the season was open
for a continuous period, they could
not toke the time to hunt as much.
Game officials are also being criti
cized here for releasing a quantity of
birds for brooding purposes just be
fore the open season, it being said
these birds were largely killed, hence
frustrating the purpose for which
they were released. It is probable
the local gun club will pass a reso
lution asking for the restoration of
the former hunting schedule
"TRAIL DUST" HERE SUNDAY.
"Trail Dust," the new 101 Ranch
super-special which comes to the Star
theater on Sunday, Dec. 4, two shows,
was filmed in its entirety on the
famous "Miller Bros." ranch in Ok
lahoma. The "101 Ranch" is said to be the
largest ranch in the world, compris
ing as it does over two hundred thou
sand acres. There are always from
forty to fifty thousand cattle and
ten to fifteen thousand horseson
their ranges. They also have one of
the few remaining buffalo herds in
captivity, comprising three hundr-J
buffaloes and fifty calves.
Another feature of the show is the
Chief Big Boy and his musical red
skins orchestra, which plays during
the showing of the pictures. Five
full-blooded Ponca Indians who are
part of the cast in the picture.
Regular meeting of Heppner Lodge
No. 69, A. F. & A. M., will be held
next Saturday evening, December 3rd.
There will be work in the F. C. de
gree. F. E. FARRIOR, W. M.
MORE LOCAL ITEMS
T. W. Cutsfoth, formerly engaged
in wheat raising in this county, ar-
rived from Salem on Wednesday last
and contemplates spending several
weeks at Lexington. Mr. cutstortn
retired from the farming game in
Morrow county with the past season,
and is now interested in a couple of
tracts of land near Dallas, Polk coun
ty, and divides his time between
Dallas and Salem, where his daughter
Mrs. Maud Pointer, lives. One of
these tracts, about 22 acres, is plant
ed to prunes which produced fair
crop this season. On the other there
is five acres of Hops, as wen as Der
ries and other fruits, so Mr. Cuts
forth has had to inform himself re
garding a line, or lines of endeavor
he had never before been interested
in. He has his valley tracts leased
to parties, however, who understand
the game, and is quite content with
the change made, though it would
seem that he had retired from wheat-
raisine here just at the wrong time,
as he looks forward to a series of
good crops in Morrow county, and
thinks there is nothing that beats a
wheat ranch in the Lexington coun
try when conditions are as promising
as they appear to be at tne present
W. G. Palmateer, who has been
sDending the summer and fall in the
Morgan and lone sections, working
during harvest, will leave this week

he will again work in the logging
camps. Mrs. Palmateer was here for
awhile, but she returned to Jasper
several weeks ago. Wid reports the
Morgan country thoroughly soaked
this fall, the record at Morgan since 1
August first showing nearly five in-1
ches of rainfall, and it has been a
great boost to the fall seeding.
