ALL ON THE MAP
Brother Thomas, of the Lexington
Wheatfield, calls the attention of the
Heppner Gazette to the fact that the
County Court of Morrow recently ap
propriated $250 for the purpose of pay
ing one-half of the expense of issuing a
booklet about Morrow County, the
Heppner, Commercial , club to pay an
equal amount, and . Thomss says the
book could be printed for $250, and
that it practically only treats of Hepp
ner. We do not know anything about the
facts of the case other than what the
Wheatfield says' but on general prin
ciples we do not believe the county
judge would sanction the expenditure
of a cent of county funds for the pur
pose of advertising the county unless
it was at least nine-tenths for' his own
town. Judge Ayers is not built that
way. He scarcely knows there are
such places as lone, Lexington, Irrigon
and Castle Rock, except about election
times. But he will, thank the -Lord,
find out that we are on the map, and
have voters,' when another election rolls
around. !
.. Morrow is a good county, has some
good towns, and lots of good, wide
awake people, and we ought to pull to
gether, and as a rule do. The papers
'of the. county are not hide-bound!
They all work for the county as a
"whole. The two Heppner papers and
those of lone, Lexington aud Irrigon
gives lots of space each weak to the
county as a whole, and we are all proud
of anything that helps the county no
matter whether it is in our town or
some other part of the community.
The trouble is not with the news
papers. It is with a few old mossbacks
who ought to have been dead twenty
years, ago ."but who. still linger on the
stage of action to gather more .moss
for themselves and to hold the balance
'of the county back. Irrigon, Irrigator.
Prosperity is here, but1 many a poor
man is forgotten and won't have turkey
on Thanksgiving, unless he goes to
meet the good , times by "doing" some
thing. Santa Claus will ,be interested to
learn that the company recently or
ganized to manufacture tablets of con
densed wines and whisky promises to
have its product- on the' market by
Christmas.
Don't worjy about your kidneys
when you can obtain 30 days' treat
ment of Pineules for $1.00. These
little globules bring relief in the first
dose. Backache, Lumbago and Rheu
matism yeild quickly. If not satisfied
your money refunded. This is a fair
offer you can't lose. Sold by W. P.
McMillan.
So many people have called on a
woman since It was rumored that she
intended to give a party, that she has
been compelled to trim a clothes bas
ket with ribbon, and hang it in the hall
for a card basket.
The young men of Wayback inKan
sas have organized an anti-tea drinking
clu J, a:id one rule is, that lips that sip
tea. shall never sip ambrosial nectar
from theirs. 0, Carrie, see whaA your
little hatchet has done.
To cure a cold first move the bowels.
Bees Laxative Cough Syrup acts gently
on the bowels, drives out the cold, clear
the head. It's pleasant to take and
mothers highly recommend it for colds,
croup and whooping cough! Equally
good for young and old. Sold by W.
P. McMillan. , '
The haughty hen sticks up her nose
and proudly walks away, and though
we coax and wheedle her she still de
clines to lay. We feed her cracklings;
meat and grain, ground oyster shells
and such, but still she hangs onto her
eggs with a puissant clutch. Why is
it when eggs are chea p the hens work
overtime, but choose to take a rest
j ist when the prices climb? Why is
r
it things we want the worse are always
scarce and high? When we are need
ing water most why do the wells go dry?
Why is it gold and precious stones are
always hard to find? . In granting life's
precious gifts why are the fates
unkind?
