Mr. and Mrs. E. S. Duran, who
have been on their Blackhorse farm
for the past three years, are grad
ually bringing things up to date
again. They have Just finished In
stalling an electric light plant for
the house and barn and other out
buildings, and this will be followed
by the placing of modern water con
veniences In both residence and
barn, the pressure being supplied
by a reservoir elevated sufficiently
to give the force needed, both elec
tric and water plants being power
ed from the same engine. Mr. Du
ran has in 500 acres of wheat that
is now coming along fine. Getting
to Heppner from the ranch is not
easy yet, as the roads are soft and
slippery, but a few more days and
the ground will be fully settled.
Their part of the county had nearly
20 inches of snow and the ground
got the benefit of the most of It
when it melted. Mr. and Mrs. Dur
an were visitors here Tuesday af
ternoon. A cablegram received on the 6th
of February by Mrs. Alex Warren
of Kinzua, Ore., announced the
death at Collie Hospital, Western
Australia, of her daughter, Nellie
Ann (Robison) Cull, which occur
red on January 28th. Death result
ed from pneumonia. Mrs. Cull
leaves six children and her husband
to mourn her loss, at the Australia
home, besides three brothers, Clyde,
Roy and Henry Robinson, and one
sister, Mrs. Grace Harrison, and her
mother, Mrs. Alex Warren of Ore
gon. Nellie was born at Hardman,
Oregon, December 7, 1902, and was
well known there.
J. W. Becket, who registers as a
voter In Multnomah county, main
taining a residence in one of the
Portland wards, came up from that
citv the end of the week. He was
in Heppner Saturday with his son,
Charles Becket, from the old home
on Eight Mile, where J. W. has
enjoyed spending a lot of his time
during the past few years. In fact,
he admitted to the G. T. man and
a few other friends, just on the
quiet, Saturday, that he wished he
was living in Morrow county he
likes it here and cannot get weaned
Mr. and Mrs. Edison Morgan and
Mr. Morgan's father, M. R. Morgan,
were lone people in the city on
Saturday. M. R., pioneer wheatrais
er of the lone country, who retired
a number of years ago from active
participation in the game, states
that the present Indications point
to a splendid yield for the 1930
season. So far as he has been able
to learn, there has been no damage
because of the cold weather, and
the ground contains the best sup
ply of moisture it has had for many
seasons past.
Roy Nelll, who was in Heppner
on Saturday from his home near
Pine City, reports everything look
ing fine on Butter creek since the
warmer weather set in. Alfalfa
fields are putting on their coat of
green as a result of growing con
ditions. Stock along the creek win
tered in fine shape and the hills will
soon furnish green feed, providing
the present warm weather con
tinues. Alonzo Edmundson, who has been
In Portland for some time receiving
medical attention for his jaw, which
was seriously injured In an auto
mobile accident, returned home
Sunday night, expecting to be here
for a week. The condition of his
jaws is somewhat Improved, but it
will be some time before complete
recovery from the accident.
Herman Neilson was in town
from his Rood canyon farm Tues
day. He found the roads leading
to the highway a little slick, but
travel not so bad. Up Hardman
way everything points to an early
spring, and grain seems to have
come through the cold snap devoid
of Injury.
Tindal Robison states that roads
out his way are almost impassable,
owing to the soaking they got when
the big snow departed. He fully
satisfied himself of this fact when
he undertook to make a journey
from his Eight Mile farm to Con
don, where he was called to see his
sister who had suffered Injuries by
falling. He left home at 2 p. m.
and was able to make it into Con
don, a distance of 35 miles, after
1 a. m., just having all kinds of
trouble in getting over portions of
the road. It would have required
his making a journey of about 110
miles through Heppner and around
to Condon by the highway, but at
that he would have saved a lot of
time, and the Journey would have
been much more pleasant. Mr. Rob
ison was looking after business here
on Friday, having just returned
from Condon.
E. W. Bergstrom, young farmer
of the Gooseberry section, was at
tending to business affairs in Hepp
ner on Friday, it being his first trip
to town for a number of weeks,
owing to the big snow in January.
It was his opinion that the ground
received the great bulk of the mois
ture when the snow melted, and
from what he could tell at this ear
ly date, the wheat had received no
injury from the sub-zero weather,
the heavy fall of snow having pre
vented that.
Peter Brenner, a pioneer resident
of Morrow county, and for many
years a farmer in the Eight Mile
country, passed away at the home
of a brother residing at Scio, Ore
gon, the past week, being 83 years
of age. Mr. Brenner left this coun
ty a number of years ago and since
that time had been making his
home at Portland and Scio. He
was the son of Oregon pioneers.
John McMillan informs this office
that at his place northwest of Lex
ington, the moisture has reached
down to a depth of 24 inches, as he
discovered when doing some dig
ging a few days ago. This is two
inches below what it was at this
season last year. His grain is look
ing up well. He and his neighbor,
E. J. Evans, were looking after bus
iness in Heppner Monday.
Mr. and Mrs. Frank Stevenson,
who have been in Heppner during
the illness of Mrs. Stevenson's fath
er, Henry Howard, departed for
their home In Washington Friday.
Mr. Stevenson will bs remembered
by many Heppner residents as the
operator of the old flour mill located

Make Baby Covers
From old blankets you can make
the most desirable sort of covers for
the new baby. These may be made
from pieces of the blanket of con
venient size, simply hemmed around
or finished with blanket stitch or
bound. They have the advantage
over new blankets of being very
soft and pliable and are better to
us than knitted coverlets, because
they can be washed frequently
There is an excellent sort of car
riage or crib cover that calls for
pieces of old blanket. Make a cover
of any desired wash material. Line
it with the same material or with
thin muslin. Leave a slit in the
back of this lining, through which a
double layer of the old blanket, cut
lust the right size, may be inserted
Put the hands into the cover and
push out the blanket at the corners.
You may then keep it secure oy
fastening at each corner through
with a tiny safety pin, or you may
have little tapes at the corners of
the blanket and run these through
small button-holes at the corners of
the cover, tying the ends secure.
The advantage of this sort of
cover is that it may be washed
easily and yet be warm. The or
dinary knitted carriage robe, of
course, becomes thickened witn
many washes and never looks so
attractive after it has been submit
ted to frequent washings.
Keep Children Comfortable
When the children divide their
time between a comfortable home
and the cold out-of-doors It is some
times difficult to decjdd on the

light-weight garments are warmer
than a heavy one. A practical selec-
toin is a woolen coat that is loose
enough for a sweater to be worn
underneath on especially cold days.
Leggings will also come in handy
in frigid weather.
Orange Sherbet
Grate the rind of four oranges on
two and one-half cups of sugar.
Add to it one quart of water; put
it in a double boiler and cook to a
clear syrup, being very careful to
remove all the scum. Remove from
the fire and strain through a fine
muslin cloth. When cold, add the
strained juice of twelve oranges and
two lemons and one pint of cold
water. If not sweet enough, add
more sugar. Strain it and freeze.

"A year ago rheumatic pains de

nothing gave me lasting relief until
I started Sargon. Two bottles of

woolen garments are suitable for

Light-weight underwear and cot

choice for children who live In a
well-heated house. These are desir

with which they can be kept clean.
