Yellowstone, Copper
Mining Seen on Trip
Mr. and Mrs. J. O. Turner re
turned home Sunday from an 8-day
motor trip on which they "gypsied"
through Yellowstone National park,
learned first-hand of the copper
mining industry at Butte and Ana
conda, Mont., and otherwise spent an
interesting vacation.
Driving to Boise the first day, they
stopped at Vale for a short visit with
Mr. and Mrs. L. G. Atherton, uncle
and aunt of Mrs. Turner's. Between
Boise and Twin Falls, sight of the
Thousand Springs, reputedly emerg
in from a hidden river, and the huge
power plant at Shoshone falls were
enjoyed. The big power plant sup
plies power for the entire state of
Idaho. From Twin Falls to Pocatello,
beyond where the green wheat in
dicated harvest a month later than
that at home.
A sight of the famous Jackson
Hole country was seen from an ele
vation of 8400 feet and angle of 45
degrees in the Teton mountains.
These mountains and the pass across
them before entering the park was
considered one of the highlights of
the trip. The snow covered Grand
Teton towering above the other
peaks at a 'height of almost 14,0001
feet was a beautiful sight. Just be
fore reaching the south entrance of
the park a violent electrical storm
was encountered.
iirst attraction in the parte was
Old Faithful geyser, seen the eve
ning of the first day there lighted by
beams of a 1500 candlepower beacon
light The second day was spent
hiking, viewing geysers, springs, riv
ers, inspecting the camp, museum,
picture studio, hotel, watching fat
folk splash in the natatorium, chas
ing black bear away from cabin and
trying to sleep.
Into the mountains by way of
Grand canyon and Yellowstone falls
and border of Great Yellowstone
lake, claimed highest fresh water
lake in the world at elevation of
7761 feet, and a 14-mile side drive to
see 62 head of grizzly and black bear
being fed, another outstanding sight
as reported.
The park was left the fourth day
through the east gate over 8559-foot
Sylvan pass to Cody, Wyo., with
pleasant memories of the park, no
report of which would be complete,
say the visitors, without mention of
the excellent accommodations every
where and the high type of service
given by employees, most of whom
are college students. After viewing
"Wild Bill" Cody's memorial statue,
the route followed through Powell,
Deaver, Frannie and on to Bridger.
Mont From Red Lodge the Cooke
highway was followed through the
northeast entrance of the park to
Mammoth Hot Springs, thence thru
the north gate to Livingston, Boze
man and Butte, Mont.
At Butte a visit was enjoyed at
the home of Mr. and Mrs, Jay King,
friends, and through Jay, Jr., min
ing engineer and sampler in the cop
per mines a liberal education in cop
per mining was obtained. His infor
mation was supplemented by a visit
to the huge smelter at Aanconda,
said to be the largest in the world,
Missoula, Wallace and Kellogg,
Idaho, were visited on the return,
through Spokane, Pasco and Her
miston. '
Eric Bergstrom and son "Skeet"
took advantage of the lay-off from
harvest caused by Thursday eve
ning's storm to transact business in
the city the following day. They re
ported the second rain of the storm
at their Gooseberry farm to have
been the heaviest they had ever
seen. In fifteen minutes time a large
space of level ground about the
house was covered by water four
inches deep, and one of the boys on
the farm got into difficulty attempt
ing to rescue some small pigs. Two
boys who were after the cows no
ticed the storm brewing and head
ed for the house. They were caught
before reaching it", however, and
looked like they had been dragged
through a river. Though some of
the tall grain had been laid low by
the heavy rainfall and hard wind
that accompanied it, they anticipat
ed that most of it would be saved.
J. E. Swanson of lone was a bus
iness visitor in the city for a short
time Monday morning. Mr. Swanson
is a leading grain broker of the
neighboring city where activity in
receiving the new grain crop is now
mighty lively.

When L. W. Briggs, county treas
urer and octogenarian, drove to
Heppner Junction last Thursday
evening to meet his daughter, Miss
Opal Briggs, and Mrs. Jennie Mc
Carter who were returning from a
week's vacation, he thought for a
time that he was encountering a sec
ond Heppner flood. He went through
water clear over the tires on the
highway above lone, and beyond
lone it was washing the windshield
in dense sheets, necessitating prog
ress at a snail's pace. Having gone
through the storm at the time of the
big flood, he believed he could safe
ly say that the fall encountered on
this trip was heavier than that at
Heppner preceding the memorable
In the heaviest part of the storm,
the ditch at either side of the high
way was flowing brimful and the
highway itself resembled a stream,
so that he could only guess where
the road actually was.
On the return he found the high
way guardsmen detouring traffic
over the ridge road between lone

Continued on
and Lexington, and not being famil
iar with the road was at a loss to
know which road to take at one place
where three roads came together.
Fate was -with him here, as Harry
Tamblyn, county engineer, came
along as he debated the problem,
and piloted his car over the correct
route. In traversing this road, occa
sional flood sloughs were encoun
tered without warning, drenching
his car's exterior with muddy water.
Recalling the heavy rain of June
14, 1903, preceding Heppner's de
luge, Mr. Briggs said he was in the
house when the rain was descend
ing. Noticing a neighbor's cow in the
yard with its head stuck down under
a rose bush, he decided to go put the
animal in the barn. Donning a hard
brimmed hat, he ventured forth, but
the force of the rain drove the brim
down over his eyes. He then went
back to the house and put a big
cowboy hat on over the other one.
But again the brims of the two hats
were driven down over his nostrils,
almost suffocating him. Realizing
then why the animal had its head
for record by the Clerk of said County
on the 26th day of July, 1938, which said
Certificate is in the amount of $28,320.09
being the amount then due and delin
quent for taxes for the year 1937 and
prior on which a period of three years
has expired since the earliest date of
delinquency of taxes levied and charged
on any tax roll of Morrow County, Ore
gon, and on which there has not been
paid two annual installments of such de
linquent taxes, each installment being
one-quarter of the taxes of the earliest
year of delinquency, in accordance with
of delinquency, in accordance with
Chapter 5, Oregon Laws, Special Ses
sion, 1935, as amended by Chapter 96,
Oregon Laws 1937, and also the taxes on
the 1936 and 1937 tax rolls, together
with, interest and costs thereon, upon
