J. A. Patterson Lives But
Few Hours Following
Death came suddenly to John A.
Patterson, pioneer Heppner drug
gist, at his home In this city on Sun
day morning at about 8:00 o'clock,
his demise being the result of cere
bral hemorrhage, though he had not
been well for some time. Driving
home from his piece of business Sat
urday morning, Mr. Patterson went
to bed, complaining of severe pain
in the head. On Sunday morning,
however, he appeared much better
and ate a hearty breakfast, Boon
after which he was attacked by the
stroke and died immediately. '
Funeral services were held at Ma
sonic hall on Tuesday at 11:00, and
that evening the remains were
shipped to Portland where services
were held on Wednesday at the
crematorium. The services here
were largely attended by friends
and neighbors and members of the
Masonic order, and the floral offer
ings were many and very beautiful.
A short address was delivered by
Rev. F. K. Spaulding and a male
quartet consisting of M. D. Clark,
Dean T. Goodman, W. O. Dix and
Vawter Crawford, sang two appro
priate hymns, Mrs. C. L. Sweek as

John Ancil Patterson was born
September 16, 1854, In Elmlra, New
York, son of Robert and Mary Pat
terson, and his boyhood days were
spent on the farm. In 1873 he was
married to Rebecca Griffiths at
Horneville, New York, and for al
most 56 years they journeyed life's
pathway together. Mr. Patterson
took up railroading and became a
locomotive engineer, which occupa
tion he followed for many years.
Coming west In 1878 he worked for
different railroads in California,
Washington and Oregon, and it was
his privilege to drive the first train
into Heppner upon the completion
of the branch of the O.-W. R. N.
to this city in December, 1888. With
his family he took up his residence
here while Mr. Patterson continued
with the railroad company for some
fifteen years as engineer on the
branch, and his railroad experience
covered a period of thirty-five years.
Upon retiring from this work, he
went Into the drug business with his
son with whom he had formed a
partnership some years before leav
ing the railroad, nad the firm of
Patterson & Son, druggists, has been
one of the business fixtures of this
city for the past quarter of a cen
tury or more.
Surviving Mr. Patterson are his
widow, Rebecca Patterson and son
Ben R. Patterson, who lives at Pas
adena, Calif., where he and his fath
er also conducted a drug business.

O'Connor Bros. Add
To Land Holdings
Jerm O'Connor was in town Tues
day and closed a deal with R. W.
Owen for 920 acres of range land
which was surrounded by the other
lands of O'Connor Bros, on Rhea
creek. This now gives these young
sheepmen a total of some 7000 acres
of good range and hay land in that
vicinity, making their ranch one of
the best In the county. They will
run three bands of sheep for the

grass on the range has started nice

come along properly. Should mois
ture sufficient arrive soon, the fall
range will be excellent.

a number of sales are reported. The
prevailing price was $1.0214. Much
wheat yet remains to be sold in the
county, however, and may be held

City Election Calling
Out Many Candidates
For a number of years past the
city election has been a rather quiet
affair, as it was possible much of
the time to get just a sufficient
number of candidates to fill the va
cancies, and this was often those
who were retiring, and they would
be persuaded to run again. In this
manner, no contest was on, and con
sequently little interest taken by the
electorate. It will be somewhat dif
ferent this year, as already there
appears two full tickets.
During the past week, M. L. Case
filed for mayor, and at the same
time the petitions of T. J. Humph
reys, John Hlatt and Spencer Craw
ford were presented, duly verified,
to Clerk Anderson, asking their
names be placed on the city ticket
for councilmen. Later W. G. Mc
carty handed In his petition for
mayor, and the petitions of Gay M.
Anderson, L. E. Bisbee- and Frank
Shively have been filed for council
men. All these are good men, and
it will be up to the voters to decide
whom they shall have serve them
for the next four years. The retir
ing officers will be Mayor Noble,
who has been at the head of the
city government for the past six
years, and Councilmen M. D. Clark,
L. E. Bisbee and Chas. Thomson.
LITTLE DAUGHTER DIES.
Ruby Louise Wilson, little daugh
ter of Mr. and Mrs. Robert Wilson
of Boardman, died at Heppner hos
pital at 9:00 o'clock Wednesday
morning, following an illness of two
weeks, during which she suffered
from intestinal trouble. The child
took sick at the Boardman home
and was later brought here for med
ical care. The remains were pre

L. Case and were taken to Board-
man today where the funeral was
to be held at 2:00 p. m.
A younger child of Mr. and Mrs.

ner, suffering with the same trouble,
but she had sufficiently recovered
to be taken home on Tuesday by
her parents. This little girl was
cured for at the home of Mr. and
Mrs. Alva Jones, and the older

her parents left for home Tuesday
afternoon. Upon receiving word

Corvallis, Ore., October 8. Bread
Grain. Wheat markets on the
whole were unchanged to slightly
higher last week. Rye showed Im
provement on export Inquiry and is
considered to be in rather firm po
sition. Soft wheats were about
steady at" $1.48-11-49 in St. Louis for
No. 2 grade bulk basis, which is a
little better than this kind was
bringing a year ago but not nearly
so high as last April and May. The
world supply of bread grain, ac
cording to present information, Is
not greatly different from a year
ago. In the northern hemisphere
there appears to be about 5 per cent
more wheat but rye production is
enough less to offset the increase in
wheat Southern hemisphere crops
are more promising than a year ago,
but old stocks there are about 30,
000,000 bushels lower. On the de
mand side, in addition to the normal
increase in consumption of perhaps
5 per cent, there is a poor potato
crop in prospect in Europe and the
corn crop is also small there.
Feed Grains. Corn prices were
sharply higher. Oats were firm.
Barley prices advanced In both do
mestic and foreign markets. Flax
advanced. Feed grain markets are
influenced by short carryover stocks
and lower prospective production of
corn in the United States and Eu
rope than expected earlier In the
season. A short potato crop in Eu
rope is also a factor in the situa
tion. Domestic supplies of feed
grain are large however, particular
ly in the Corn Belt, while the sup
ply of livestock for feeding Is short.
A private statistician reports a ra
tion of feed to livestock of 116 which
would indicate the largest relatives
supply of feed grain for many years.
There is a better balance between
supply and demand In most parts
of the country than In the Corn
Hay, Pasture and Feeds. The gen
eral condition of pastures and
ranges is not so good, which has Im
proved demand for hay and feeds.
High protein feeds and choice al
falfa hay tend to advance in price.
Potatoes. Digging of main crop
potatoes is now general and reports
of the yield vary. The crop may
not be as big as the September es
timate, but on the other hand some
yields indicate no shortage of po
Poultry. No increase in consump
tion but larger receipts resulted in
building up stocks of storage eggs
during the past month to a point
above the large holdings of a year
ago. This situation is in reverse to
that of earlier months of the pres
ent year and has resulted in a level
of prices scarcely equal to last year
at this time instead of from 3 to
6 cents higher as prevailed through
out much of the season. Informa
tion remains incomplete regarding
the probable trend of production
this fall and winter. Some decrease
in numbers of pullets is expected
but on the other hand favorable
weather and an abundance of cheap
er ieea may iena to nom production
up. The United States situation is
giving some concern to Canadian
egg interests as well as to holders
of cold storage stocks in this coun
try as indicated by prices of eggs
for future delivery.
Dairy Products. A very favorable
season for butter production is ex
pected in Australia and New Zea
land which with increasing produc
tion in this country is tending to
curb the seasonal rise in prices
which are now about In line with
a year ago whereas prices in July
and August were 3 to 5 cents above
1927. Cheese stocks were about 14,-
000,000 pounds higher on September
1 than a year ago and 10,000,000
pounds over average, with a ten
dency to accumulate. Milk prod

Farming" as applied by him to the
irrigated sections was of pratlcular
benefit to the progressive farmer.
Several readings, monologs, and
song numbers by the various sub

lighter and more entertaining num
bers on the program.
Among resolutions adopted were

should have been. We are sure,
