Henry Smouse reports that he
has been quite busy reseeding at
has farm in the lone section. The
Arco wheat seemed to be al killed,
and this has been reseeded, and
while the Turkey Red seems to be
coming through, much of it is un

' now, Mr. Smouse states. He was
a visitor here yesterday afternoon.
Clifford Simms of Freewater and

were visitors in Heppner Saturday,

of instituting proceeding in court
for the recovery of missing wheat.

not taken at this meeting, so this
paper has been informed.
This paper was in error last week
regarding the nativity of John
Skuzeski, who was made a citizen
of the United States in examination
before Judge Parker in circuit
court The paper had Mr. Skuzeski
a native of Russia, whereas, it
should have been Poland. He was
born at Krakow, near the city of
Warsaw in Poland, and we are glad
to make this correction on behalf
of Mr. Skuzeski.

Mr. and Mrs. Gus Wilcox were
