Heppner-Spray highway nears com
pletion. The drive over takes about
three hours now and this time will
be shortened, when the last link In
the highway is completed, and these
good people hope that this will not
be delayed any longer than is ab
solutely necessary. Mrs. Roland
and daughter will be in the city for

THE INDEPENDENT THINKER.
(Being a brief summary of the
sermon preached by the pastor of
the Church of Christ Sunday eve
ning, August 19.)
There was a time when anyone
called a heretic was apt to be burn
ed at the stake or have his eyes put
out with red hot iron or have his
tongue pulled out by the roots or
suffer any similar punishment ac
cordlng to the whim of the perse
cutor. Now a heretic is simply one
who thinks differently. He is one
whp does not hold the common or
orthodox opinion. The fact that he
is different does not prove him to be
either right or wrong. The old
method was to assume him wrong
and punish him severely. The more
modern method seems to be to as
sume that the one who is different
is right ana to heap honors upon
him. The old system may have had
advantacea but nnuld not hA rni
ated in the same world with free
dom of conscience. However, the
opposite extreme of today leaves
mucn uj oe aesirea ior tne reason
one is not necessarily either right
or independent simply because he
disagrees with orthodox opinions.
