Mrs. E. S. Duran has a very fine
garden at the farm home In Black
horse. We know this Is true, for
she left with us a sample of the
very excellent turnips, all grown on
dry land, that she has raised this
season. We can well remember the
very One vegetables raised on this
place "nigh on to forty year" ago,
when Mr. Sweetser, father of Mrs.
Duran, furnished the Heppner mar
ket with a great portion of its "gar
den truck" delivered to the resi
dents early every morning. The
fram evidently produces just as well
these later days.
R. E. Driskell of Eight Mile was
looking after business here on Mon
day. Harvest will be coming on out
his way in about two weeks, the
grain turning rapidly with the
warm weather. Had it not been
for frost getting some of his wheat
just as it was beginning to head
out, he feels that he would have
had better than a 40-bushel yield.
This figure will be reduced some
on account of the whitecaps, but an
abundant yield is looked for by Mr.
Driskell, and a number of his neigh-
bors will likewise make a fine show
ing this season.
Harry French reports that there
is considerable activity in timber
out his way, and that a number of
parties have been cruising over the

This is what he Btated to the editor
while in town for a short time on
Monday. Whether or not there will
be any trades made, he was not
able to say, but representatives of
several large mills were looking
over the timber belt In the south
part of the county, and rumors are
heard to the effect that much prop
erty will likely change hands out

extensively some six miles north of
Lexington, was a visitor here on
Friday. He reports that it rained
