MRS. A. T. HEREIM, Correspondent
Miss Erma Broyles left Tuesday
for an unlimited stay at Rock
Springs, Wyo. She stopped at La
Grande for a short visit with her
Mrs. Lottie Attebury was pleased
to have her daughter, Mrs. A. C.
Nottingham and family of Port
land with her for the week end.
They came up on Memorial day and
remained over Sunday.
The Home Economics club met
Wednesday with Mrs. Chas. Wick
lander. A splendid luncheon was
partaken of and later a social hour
was enjoyed followed by a business
meeting. The matter of the ap
proaching North Morrow County
fair was discussed at length and
other business transacted.
Mr. and Mrs. Robert Wilson and
Mr. and Mrs. T. E. Broyles motored

On Tuesday, June 10, a children's
clinic will be held at the school at
9 a. m. This will be for children
from six months to two years of age
and for all those children who enter
school this fall, and for children of
any other age whose parents wish
an examination. This clinic will be
free of charge and it is hoped that
parents will bring their children for
examination. The children will be
weighed, measured, teeth, throats
examined, etc. If necessary Miss
Stallard will return at intervals of
two weeks during the summer to
give further assistance to mothers.
The health work in the county is a
very fine thing and parents should
give Miss Stallard cooperation in
every way possible.
The time again draws near for
the election of school director. Chas.
Dillon is the retiring director. There
are no burning issues this year, so
not a great deal of interest has
been shown. It is likely that Mr.
Dillon will be reelected without
much opposition. He understands
the stringent financial condition of
the district and the various prob
lems which the directors must meet.
Paul Smith, Leslie Packard, F. A
Fortier and Jack Gorham are oth
ers who have been mentioned as
possible candidates for the thank
less position. Mrs. Lee .mead will
have no opposition as clerk, having
filled that place very capably the
last two years.
This section was visited by a fine
rain on Memorial day, which was
not much appreciated by the farm
ers who had their hay down. The
usual wind followed on Saturday.
Memorial day was not observed
here except by those who had loved
ones sleeping in "The City of the
Dead." Practically every grave was
decorated. The cemetery looks far
different now than it did eight years
ago when Arvie Hango was buried
there. It was then a desert waste
but at present it has trees planted,
it is fenced, some of the lots have
grass planted and growing, and a
windmill provides water. The Ol
sons and Roots have worked un
ceasingly there to improve the ap
pearance of the place and it has
been a constant struggle against
many odds. Last summer the wa
ter in the small reservoir became
too warm and burned the vegeta
tion; the hot winds in the summer
force them to make many trips to
the cemetery to irrigate that their
labor may not be all in vain. Then,
too, there is the constant handicap
of insufficient funds. Those buried
in the cemetery are Arvie, Wayne
and Teddy Hango, Ezra Hopkins,
Mr. Kelly, Charles Attebury, Clif
ford Olson, Mrs. Lulu Wicklander,
Mrs. Clarence Berger, Mrs. W. A.
Price, Pearl Nickerson, Richard
Root, Jessie Bennet, Mrs. Nettie
Hill, Mrs. Emma Sherman, W. A.
Goodwin, Mrs. Alice Dingmon,
Ruby Wilson, the tiny Cooney baby
and a wee babe born to Mr. and
Mrs. George Gross.

Deos girl Friday at Heppner.

purchased the first cutting of hay
on the Jess Lower place.

sheep to the mountains Saturday,

Chas. Dillon had a wheel on his

I will pass on now until the morn
ing of September 19, 1863. We were
camped at Ringgold. It was there
that we got our orders from "Pap"
Thomas as we called him, to pack
with two days rations and 40 rounds
of cartridges. We marched all of
that night and arrived on Snod-
grass ridge at about noon Sunday.
I was wounded at about 5 o clock
that evening. A short time after
that our line retreated and the reb
el line passed over me. After about
a half hour a rebel straggler came
to me. He took my cap and gave
me his old slouch hat. He also
traded canteens. I guess he had
a little sympathy for me for he
rustled a blanket, which he brought
to me before going on. So I began ,
to think I would soon be a pris
oner, in their hands. I then de
stroyed the cartridges that I had
left nd took the lock off of my gun
and threw it away. I laid there
until Tuesday morning when the
rebels gathered us up and took us
to Snodgrass ridge down beside
Chickamauga creek. We had our
board and lodging there until Octo
ber 2, when we signed the pay roll
and were taken to the hospital at
Chatanooga, Tenn. I was kept there
until the latter part of January,
1864, when I was sent to Nashville.
I was sent from one hospital to an
other until I arrived at Camp Chase,
Ohio, where I stayed until June 30,
1864. I receive my discharge then,
