. Heppner Gazette
The road leading to lone from Hepp
ner Is now receiving considerable at
tention. vThe road is being graded and
Harry Bartholomew recently shipped
six car loads of sheep from Echo, to
the Union Meat company, of Portland.
The sheep brought close to $6 per
head in the Portland market.
Complaint comes to the Gazette
about chickens running at large in the
city. It will soon be time to make
gardens and then the gardens or the
chickens will get Into trouble.
Chickens are nice to have and so is fi
good garden, but the chickens will do I
better than the garden If allowed to
grow together. The city council has
failed to pass an ordinance against
gardens running at large, but there is a
law against the public parade .of the
feathered egg machines. To preserve
the health of the chickens, keep them
A representative of the Gazette
Visited Lexington one day last week.
Within the past year there certainly
has been a great change in the town.
Many new buildings have been built.
New business houses have started up
and prosperity, thrift and growth are so
apparent as to Impress the visitor.
The town has a good water system and
electric lights. The first electric plant
put in Is entirely to small to meet the
demand for lights and a new 14 horse
power gasoline engine has been In
stalled. '. A new 160 light dynamo is
on the way, which will be large enough
to meet present demands. The light
plant is i owned by S. A, Thomas, pro'
prletor ot the Wheatneld, which Is a
bright and progressive, newspaper.
Lexington Is surrounded with a rich
agricultural district. This country has
great posslbilltes and Is being rapidly
developed The Lexington country Is
able to support 50 times the population
now there which will always make
Lexington a good town. :(

The Lexington Wheatfield man is
also owner of the electric light system
In Lexington. This is the first case
on record where a country newspaper
man could rustle enough money to
start an electric light plant. Most of
us would be satisfied with a coal oil
lantern. This makes Mr. Thomas a
shining light both day and night.
The Wheatfield man is not the only
star that twinkles In Lexington. There
are others. , "
CHAFF FROM THE STRAW STACK
Not every man with a stove in his
hat is hot-headed.
Tickle "the printer under the ribs
with a. dollar and see him smile.
The crab may not be as good eating
as the lobster, but he'll do In a pinch.
The ladies attend conventions more
to see dresses, than to hear addresses,
Many peopjewill not believe a story, !
unless there Isloe scandal connected
Some girls go to church to giggle,
and some , boys go to church to flirt
with these gtrla.
Some girls Imagine they smell
orange blossoms every time a young
man asks them to go to a show.
A bald-headed man Is a blessing in
more ways than one. He never gets
his hair cut on Saturday.
The reason why girls wear such
tight gloves is because they are fond
of having their hand squeezed.
Some fellows who never seem to be
In a hurry themselves,' are always
ready to "rush" the growler.
When a woman and a cyclone make
up their minds to go anywhere nothing
yet invented can stop them.
