A STRANGER coming to Hepp
ner, should he step into the lobby
of the postoffice, might form the
opinion that the city is predomin
antly moron. At least there is a
decided lack of culture evidenced in
the numerous scrawlings, scrib
blings and caricatures on the walls,
the like of which are found only in
The obscene markings are known
to be the work of minors. It is re
ported that the vandalism is ac
complished in the late evenings
when the minors are supposed to
be at home. Resurrection of the
curfew law has been suggested as a
means of correction.
Curfew, and the strong arm of the
law might afford protection. It is
doubtful if they do any correcting.
There is but one way to cure any
trouble and that is to go to the
source. Vandalism is the result
largely, except in cases where the
child is absoluttly mentally de
ficient, of improper training. Prop
er education in the home and in the
school, with direction of the talents
of youth into productive channels
is the only real cure for the evil.
City authorities and citiezens of
the community generally have a
responsibility, yes. The authorities
are expected to protect public, as
well as private property, and to
bring offenders to justice. The cit
izens have a duty in providing ade
quate channels for properly direct
ing the talents and exhuberance of
Petty vandalism is the early ear
mark of criminality. It should not
be allowed to go unnoticed. Re
spect for property and obedience
of law are principles which need
to be stressed in the making of
good citizens. The principles are
based on sound reason and should
be impressed upon the youth in a
reasonable manner. Unreasonable
chastisement leads only to resent
ment, malice, and in the extreme,
rATED from the time of issu-
ance of the Heppner Gazette,
earliest established of the consoli
dated papers now known as the
Gazette Times, this newspaper is
51 years old today. It is just an
other milestone, meaningless per
haps, in that no special observance
is being made of the occasion, but
nevertheless worthy of note.
It makes little difference that
somewhere in the uncertain past
the volumes were thrown off in their
numbering, inadvertently, mayhap
through slip-up of the makeup
man, so that actually the birthdate
is March 30. The Gazette was es
tablished March 30, 1883, by one J.
A. Stine. There is now no way to
keep the numbering sequence in or
der, except to observe the anniver
sary with this issue.
Editors of the past have come and
gone. Some names still stand out
vividly on the canvas of the past:
J. W. Redington, Otis and A. W.
Patterson, Henry Rasmus, and Fred
Warnock of the Gazette; E. M.
Shutt and E. R. Hicks of the Times;
Thomas Nelson of the Record; E. G.
Harlan and S. A Pattison of the

isfa doctor's prescription, end is
perfectly safe. IU laxative action
is based on senna a natural laxa
tive. The bowels will not become
dependent on this form of help, as
in the case of mineral drugs.
Hospitals and doctors have al
ways used liquid laxatives. The
dose can be measured, and the
action controlled. Pills and tablets
containing drugs of violent action
are hard on the bowels.
If there are children in your
household, don't give them any fad
form of laxative, cut use a health
ful, helpful preparation like Syrup
Pepsin. Its very taste will tell you
it is wholesome, and agreeable to
the stomach. Delightful taste, and
delightful action; there is no dis
comfort at the time, or after. Ask
your druggist for Dr. Caldwell's
Syrup Pepsin, all ready to take.
