MOST OLD WHEAT SOLD.
During the week the wheat mar
ket on the Heppner branch has
been quite active, and it is now un
derstood that the most of last year's
crop in the elevators and ware
houses has been sold. When the
market reached the dollar per bu
shel, many let go, while others got
a little better than this, and since
the-prlce is now going around $1.15
some are lamenting that they let
go so soon. However, the clean-up
is making room for the new crop
which will soon be reaching the
railroad. A lot of contracting has
been done, ranging from 95 cents
to better than $1.05, but farmers
are slowing up on this manner of
dealing as the price advances.
Wheat buyers have been quite busy
talking contracts and we have no
data so far as to just what per
centage of the present season's crop
has been disposed of in this manner.
COUNTY GETS LAND.
At sheriff's sale on Saturday at
the Morrow county court house,
various tracts of land upon which

foreclosing of tax liens, were dis

peared, and the county was compell
ed to bid in most of the tracts. No
doubt much of this property will be
gradually disposed of as time goes
on, but just now the county is hold
ing quite a parcel or real estate.

David Miller Ends Life
By Shooting with Rifle
Funeral services under the direc
tion of M. L. Case, undertaker, were
held on Saturday afternoon at
Hardman for David Miller, 57, who
took his life by shooting at the
home of John Hottman In Hepp
ner on Thursday afternoon at 3:30.
Burial was in I. O. O. F. cemetery
Mr. Miller had evidently become
despondent over the state of his
health and his personal affairs, and
decided to end it all, and used for
his taking-off a 25-30 rifle that he
had but recently brought to the
house, and which his wife who was
in the house with him at the time
of the tragedy, did not know he
possessed. It seems that Mr. Miller
had been much affected of late in
regard to his health, and he had a
few days before asked Sheriff Bau
man that he be taken to Pendleton
and placed in the state hospital for
treatment The sheriff stated to him
that he would have to have an ex
amination before a physician, and
he called at the office of Dr. Mc
Murdo where Dr. Fagan, who was
in charge, failed to find anything
to indicate that he was failing men
tally. The statement of Mrs. Miller to
officials and friends was to the ef
fect that she and her husband were
alone in the house. They had been
talking about his condition, when
he suddenly arose and bid her an
affectionate good-by and went into
the bed room, curtained off from
the room where they were sitting.
Being a little suspicious, she fol
lowed and saw that he had a gun
in his hand. Mrs. Miller wrestled
with him and succeeded In getting
the gun, and started for the outside
to call for help. He overtook her
on reaching the door and took the
gun from her, immediately, placing
the muzzle to his temple and firing.
Mrs. Miller ran from the house and
up Main street to summon help and
when Coroner Case and City Police
man Matteson arrived the man was
still alive. Dr. Fagan was called
from the hospital across the street,
but found that the shot was fatal,
the ball having passed entirely
through the head and lodging in
one of the walls of the room. He
died without regaining conscious
ness. Mr. and Mrs. Miller were making
their home in the Briggs house with
John Hottman, and had been liv
ing in Heppner for some time, com
ing here from Hardman. He is sur
vived by his widow and two broth
ers and two sisters. These are Jim
and Francis Miller of . Hardman,
Mrs. Walter Bennett of Burns and
Mrs. Ira LaForge of Hardman.
Mrs. Miller, who at different times
had been confined at the state hos
pital at Pendleton while being treat
ed, was overcome by the tragic
death of her husband, and has been
returned to that institution for
