SCENE OF SHOOTING
Heistand Moore Fatally
Wounded by His Son
Glen Moore, 14, fatally wounded
his father, Heistand Moore, lower
Butter creek ranchman, Tuesday
evening, by shooting him twice with
a shotgun, the climax of a family
quarrel. The father died that night
at a Pendleton hospital where he
was rushed for treatment. The boy
later gave himself up at the sher
iff's office In Pendleton.
News of the shooting reached
Heppncr when local officers were
asked to be on the lookout for the
boy who, it was at first believed,
had attempted to make a getaway.
It was thought he might head for
Heppner as relatives live near here.
Mrs. Moore is the daughter of Dave
Gaunt Word from Echo said that
the car bearing the father had pass
ed through there on the way to Pen
dleton but it was not noticed that
the boy was in it Sheriff Bauman
and Deputy Cox Immediately set
out on the Lexington road to look
for him while City Policemen Devin
and Matteson stationed themselves
at the east approach to town. Bau
man and Cox went on through to
Butter creek where they received
word that the boy was in Pendleton.
A statement from the boy to the
Pendleton East Oregonlan yester
day said that he shot his father be
cause of a quarrel with the boy's
mother. The three had been to
Umatilla that day where Moore be
came Intoxicated, the boy said, and
quarrelled with Mrs. Moore all the
way home. On arriving home the
boy told his mother to go to bed as
she had not been feeling well fol
lowing .a recent operation. The
father continued to quarrel, follow
ing Mrs. Moore to the bedroom. The
boy became excited, he said, and got
the shotgun, going to the bedroom
door and firing twice, thinking to
make his father stop quarrelling
but not intending to kill him. One
of the discharges shattered the
man's right elbow, while the other
tore his right wrist to bits and en
tered his abdomen, said the East
When the boy saw what he had
done he rushed immediately to the
home of his aunt Kate Robertson
three miles away, and Mrs. Robert
son and her husband, Neil Robert
son, accompanied him back to the
scene of the shooting, rushing the
boy's father to the hospital In Pen
dleton where he died about mid
night The Moore family, whose post-
office Is Hermlston, is well known
In Morrow county, having resided
on Butter creek for many years and
visiting In Heppner quite often
Heistand Moore shipped cattle from
the local station at various times.
Funeral services for Mr. Moore
will be hold at 2 o'clock Sunday af
ternoon at the Methodist church in
Echo. An inquest to be held over
the body will not take place until
after the funeral, according to word
reaching Heppner today.
August and September
Time to Cull Ewe Flock
The experienced sheepman in Or
egon winters only as many sheep
as can be properly fed, knowing
well that a shortage of feed during
the winter, and especially at lamb
ing time may easily take the profit
out of the enterprise.
Which animals can profitably be
kept through the winter Is a ques
tion which the flockmaster decides
during the latter part of August or
early September, basing his selec
tion on breeding efficiency, health,
age, udder development, fleece, gen
eral conformity of individual, and
uniformity in the flock, says H. A.
Llndgren, specialist in animal hus
bandry for the Oregon State col
lege extension service.
A ewe is not generally discarded
because of age, says Mr. Llndgren,
unless she has lost her teeth, or is
otherwise run down. Those whose
udders are so defective as to make
it difficult for her to raise a lamb
properly are also eliminated.
Breeding efilciency often can be
greatly Increased by rigid culling,
careful management at the time of
breeding and by the use of strong,
vigorous rams. In the well-managed
flock the barren ewes do not exceed
five per cent. It is not advisable,
however, says Mr. Llndgren, to dis
pose of a ewe merely because she
falls to breed one year, but one
failing a second time is best dis
posed of at once.
In culling the flock, wool growers
usually select as nearly as possible
for a heavy fleece, showing plenty
of length and covering over the
body. Length and density of wool
also means less shrinkage after
clipping, it is believed. Fineness of
fiber Is also an Important consider
ation, says Mr. Llndgren.
LARGE STILL DISPLAYED.
The sheriff's office Is displaying
a large still picked up on the out
skirts of Ditch creek last week.
This is one of the largest specimens
of the kind In the imposing collec
tion kept by the county. The still
had been thrown over a bank, and
evidently abandoned as there were
no signs of Its having been used for
some time. A quantity of the dis
tilled product remained In the coll,
Heppner Stores to Close
Monday for Labor Day
Heppner stores will close Mon
day, all day, for Labor Day, an
nounces Earl D. Hallock, president
of the Heppner Luncheon club, who
was notified to this effect yesterday.
Local people are asked to take cog
nizance of the fact and arrange
their purchasing accordingly.
This is the first year for many
years that local stores have closed
for Labor Day, but in view of the
significance of the day local mer
chants believe that it should be bet
ter observed. Labor Day is set
apart in recognition of the big part
played by labor in the economic
structure of our country. It is
more closely observed In the large
Industrial centers where labor is or
ganized, but it should have as sig
nificant meaning to labor every
where, whether organized or unor
ganized. No Reacters Found in
700 'TB' Tested Cows
H. H. Green, assistant state vet
erinarian, working in the county
last week failed to find a Bingle
reacter out of 700 dairy oows tested

side points, being called away to

man from the state veterinarian's
office is available testing In the
county will be resumed. Letters
will be sent from the office of Chas.
W. Smith, county agent to all those
whose applications for testing have
not been filled. The letters will no
tify them of the exact date the
tester may be expected. It will prob
ably "be two or three weeks before
the work will be resumed, says Mr.

Personal Property Tax to
Be Paid in Year it is Due
A new law governing the collec
tion of personal property tax makes
it compulsory for the sheriff to col
lect the tax In the year In which It
becomes due, says the local sheriff's
office. A notice regarding the new
law and containing the text of the
law appears in another column of
this Issue. "It will be well for peo
ple to take note of the new law, as
It may save them troube later on,"
declares Elbert Cox, deputy sheriff.
The county has a large sum of
money on the books due on delin
quent personal taxes that is unse
cured, Mr. Cox says. Much of this
will be difficult to collect, while a
large amount is already considered
a dead loss. Failure to pay person
al property tax means that a great
er load is thrown on real property,
and It is to the Interest of the gen
eral public to see that the personal
property tax is paid.

FIRE TAKES COMBINE.
The combine belonging to Joe
Batty of near Hardman was totally
destroyed by fire on Thursday af
ternoon last while at work in his
field four miles out from Hardman.
The fire evidently caught from a
hot box and a stiff wind at the time
made it impossible to save the ma
chine. Mr. Batty spread the word
to neighbors and there was soon a
goodly number congregated to as
sist in keeping the fire from spread
ing to the uncut wheat in the field,
and the wind was also favorable,
blowing away from the uncut grain,
so no damage was done to standing
grain and a small area only, of stub
ble, burned. Another feature was
the complete burning of the gaso
line In the tank with no explosion
taking place. The combine Is one
that Mr. Batty had run for five sea
sons. He had insurance.

The John Cochran and Holmes
Holman party returned the first of
last week from a very pleasant auto
trip. They had ideal weather and
found good roads all the way. They
went by way of Fossil to Bend, Dia
mond lake and Crater lake, stop
ping at Klamath Falls and Oregon
caves. They crossed the line over
into California, saw the wonderful
Redwood forest and visited Cres
cent City. From there they motor
ed up the coast to Bandon. They
stopped at Eugene and Brownsville
and other points before they visited
Portland. At many points along the
way they visited with relatives ana
friends. At Dallas they had a plea
sant visit with Mr. Holman's sister.
Fifty-eight years ago Mrs. Cochran
left her old home In Brownsville.
Through all these years she has
carried a mind picture of the old
house and has always had a desire
to see the place again. On this trip
she had the gratification of that de-.
sire. She found the house in a
good state of preservation and just
as she had remembered it when she
left it a girl of eight years. Mr.
Cochran also visited his old home
at Harrisburg, but the only building
he found there that he could re
member was an old barn. He left
there when he was 13 years of age.
At Portland they attended a re
union of Mrs. Cochran's mother's
people. The return trip was made
over the Mount Hood loop road. Af
ter a night's rest here, Mr. and
Mrs. Holman and daughter Marjory

tucky, Ohio and Indiana. They vis
ited many interesting places, among
them being several of the state cap
itals, a national park in Arkansas,
the locality in the Ozaik mountains
made famous by Harold Bell
Wright's "Shepherd of the Hills,"
and the Mammoth caves in Ken
tucky. While on their tour of the
caves they passed near the Sand
cave where Floyd Collins lies bur
ied. A place of especial interest
which they visited in Kentucky was
the old home of Abraham Lincoln
near Hodgenville. Mrs. Corson came
home by way of Kansas City, Den
ver, through the Royal gorge to
Salt Lake City, and on home.
