in which he saw service in France.
Lee runs a photography studio and

son took up a homestead. After
proving up on the homestead they
came to Heppner in 1905 when Mr.
Notson became deputy district at
torney and partner In the law prac
tice of the late G. W. Phelps, later
circuit judge. The family home
has been made at Heppner since,

MRS. J. W. BECKET.
Catherine Irene Stall was born
August 10, 1854, at Mindon, Illinois,
the daughter of Henry V. and Ca
sandra (Liggett) Stall. When 12
years of age she moved with the
family to Creighton, Cass county,
Missouri, and it was at that place
on January 1, 1876, that she was
united in marriage to J. W. Becket.
With her husband she crossed the
plains by covered wagon to Weston,
Oregon, in 1880, and had continu
ously resided in Oregon since. The
family came to Eight Mile in Mor
row county in 1885, and Mr. and
Mrs. Becket made their home on the
farm in this county until 1907 When
they removed to Portland, making
their home at 235 S. E. 18th avenue,
where Mrs. Becket passed away
August 21, 1934, aged 80 years and
Funeral services were conducted
from the chapel of Holman & Lutz
funeral home, 14th and Sandy Blvd.,
Portland, on August 23, Rev. W. O.
Miller, pioneer minister of eastern
Oregon, officiating. Interment was
in Rose City cemetery, Portland,
beside the graves of two sons, Hen
ry and Ralph, who preceded her in
death. To Mr. and Mrs. Becket were
born five sons and three daughters,
the surviving children being Wal
ter, Charles and Norma (Ander
son) of Heppner, John of San Diego,
Calif., and Mary of Portland. Re
maining with these to mourn her
loss are her husband, J. W. Becket,
several grandchildren, five great
grandchildren and a host of friends.
Mrs. Becket was the last of her
family to be called to the Great Be
yond. Just two weeks before, a
brother, Frank Stall of Willington,
Kansas, passed away, leaving her
as the sole survivor of the family.
Her death marks the passing of an
other of those pioneers who builded
the west; of one who faced all the
hardships and vicissitudes of pion
eer conditions cheerfully, with ever
a smile and word of encouragement
to family and friends even when
things looked the blackest. These
magnificent qualities of pioneer
motherhood gained for Mrs. Becket
the love and respect of all who
Mrs. Becket's father was a cap
tain in the Union army when civil
war enveloped the nation from '61 to
ho. With other members of the
family she was left at home while
Captain Stall was away with the
boys in Blue. The Stall farm was
in contested territory, and it was
visited several times by foraging
soldiers who brought fear and suf
fering upon the Stall home.
Moving westward by covered
wagon as a young wife, Mrs. Becket
learned more of the hardships of
life on that Oregon Trail colored by
the blood of martyrs and glorified
by heroes. With her husband, Mrs.
Becket was among the first to lo
cate In the Eight Mile section and
pioneers the growing of wheat in
this county. In those early days.
the roads were but trails, the dis
tance to neighbors many miles, and
marauding Indians were abroad, a
constant threat. Through all this
Mrs. Becket was the unflinching
wife and mother, giving naught but
cheer and encouragement to those
about her. She was a lifelong mem
ber of the Methodist church, a God
fearing woman whose first concern
was for others.

County Pumping Plant In ;
New Reservoir Planned
The last connection on the coun
ty's new waterworks for fire pro
tection and irrigation at the court
house and grounds was made Tues
day, and work was started to house
the pumping plant Capable of
throwing 88 gallons a minute at the
level of the pump, the new centrifu
gal deep well pump, electrically
operated, will soon be used to keep
filled a 50,000 gallon capacity reser
voir expected to be installed several
hundred feet on the hill above.
Meantime the water will be pumped
directly into the pipes.
Total depth of the well, located in
the southeast corner of the park
behind the courthouse, is 156 feet.
Tuesday morning the water showed
a depth of 106 feet. In a 24-hour
test last week, with the pump
throwing 30 gallons a minute, the
water was never lowered below 101
feet, showing a strong flow of wa
ter. A feature of the pumping plant
is that it can be regulated to throw
any amount of water desired up to
its maximum capacity. When
pumping to the reservoir planned
to be dug, It is estimated the pump
will have a maximum capacity of
50 gallons a minute.
