HEPPNER GAZETTE TIMES, HEPPNER, OREGON, THURSDAY, FEB. 16, 1928.
To the Editor of Heppner Gazette
I have read very carefully your
45th Anniversary Booster Edition
of the Heppner Gazette Times and
was very much impressed with all
I read and also took great pleasure
In looking over all the pictures of
so many places In your county
which show what fine boosters you
have among you. I had no idea that
Cecil had faded from Morrow coun
ty's map. In private I shed a few
bitter tears for Cecil; "with all thy
faults I love thee still." It may be
that some good Cecil booster has
devoted a, whole section to your
booster edition, and it has failed to
arrive with my paper. If so please
Bond me one dozen codes and I will
humbly apologize for what I have
HnwftfT I cannot resist recalling
what I saw and knew to be correct
while living at Cecil and I believe
in giving "honor where honor Is
due " I can vouch for the following
notes and I expect even better re
ports have been going on every year
since. About six year ago as far
b T ran remember. 3501) tons 01 al
falfa were grown on land from
Cecil to the county line, and some
ixnti harf nf rattle were fed around
Cecil and shipped to the Portland
markets, and about 30,000 head of
ehoon were wintered at Cecil on the
various ranches, to say nothing of
the thousands of the earliest lambs
nihirh first saw davlieht at Sunnr
Coril and toDDed the market later
on for weight and price. Thousands
of pounds of wool were shipped
from Cecil. The best honey was
nrodueed from a Cecil ranch; also
nmiltrv and dairv Droducts. not for
getting the thousands of bushels of
vntvi wheAt which was raised on the
various hill ranches and shipped
from Cecil warehouse. Can you
wonder at me wondering why Cecil
was without a good Dooster.
usual hour. This change of hour
for service next Sunday is caused
by the pastor's going to Boardman

and will extend credit to all whom
we deem worthy, on a basis of six

per cent for cash upon delivery of
goods, which Is equal lo imny per
cent per annum; or we will allow
two and one-half per cent discount
at the end of thirty days, which is
also equal to thirty per cent per an

count remains unpaid at the end
of sixty days, an interest charge of
eight per cent per annum will be
added to the account every thirty
days thereafter. There will be no
interest charge on-any item unless
it shall have run for sixty days.
As stated above, the policy that
we will adopt will be beneficial both
