C. C. Boon Visits Old Home.
Today is not the first time that C.
C. Boon, father of Mrs. Will Wy
rlck, has been in Pendleton. He is
an old timer of the 60's and first
saw Pendleton in the days when
there was not more than a house or
two here and when "Whistling"
Thompson ran a pack train from
Umatilla to Idaho. He first came to
the county in 1867 after having been
a soldier during the Civil War. He
also has a brief record as a soldier
here though he saw no fighting
It was in '78. when the Piute In
dian war was on and Al Bunker was
slain by Indians near Cayuse. A com
pany was formed at Milton where
Mr. Boon then lived and he was made
a lieutenant. The company came
dowu to take part in driving the In
ilians away. They reached the north
bank of the Umatilla river at the very
time when federal soldiers were fight
ing on the reservation against the
hostlles from Idaho. Owing to the
fact that the water was up in the riv
er the Milton company did not get
across and they took no part in the
fighting. However their help was
not needed, anyway, as the regulars
defeated the Indians.
Mr. Boon is now a resident of Lex
ington, Morrow county, and this is
the first time he lias been here in 20
years. He was well acquainted with
A. W. Nye and many other old time
settlers here and has been busy to
day greeting old friends and enjoy
ing talks of the days when the real
Happy Canyon was on the map.

The Boise national forest In Idaho
had 30 fires during the past summer,
yet 28 were held down to less than
10 acres, and of these 16 were less

to a lookout tower, and the efficient

Daughter of Alfred H. Hooker and
wife, was born October 23rd, 1868,
at Franklinville, Lynn County, Kan
sas. She came to Oregon with her
parents in 1883 and on February
17th, 1885, she was united in mar
riage to J. S. Young in Morrow coun
ty. To this union have been born sev
en children, six of whom Burvlve and
are at present residents of this sec
tion. These are Mrs. Eugenia Hus
ton, wife of Clive Huston of Eight
Mile; Robert H., Harvey E., Elbert
Ray, James Glenn and Enreta Fay,
who with the father are left to mourn
the loss of an estimable wife and lov
ing mother.
Besides these, the following mem
bers of Mrs. Young's own family are
left: Edwin Hooker, Twinn Falls,
Idaho; Leonard Hooker, Klamath
Falls, Oregon; Delbert Hooker and
William Hooker, Medford, Oregon;
Mrs. Iva Haines, San Francisco, Cal.;

among whom Mrs. Young has resid
ed for so many years, who came to
express sympathy with the family
and to show the high regard in which
the departed was held by those know

Rev. Ferris, pastor of the Federat
ed church, conducted the services and
delivered a short, impressive and
smypathetic discourse after which
the remains were followed to their
last resting place ill Heppner ceme

of Mrs. Young, and in the parting
words of the pastor at the grave the
appreciation of the stricken family
was expressed for all the kindnesses
and tender "sympathies extended in
the hour of sickness and bereave

matters pertaining to morals and re
ligion and in every way an estimable
woman, and the vacancy caused by
her death, not only In her ramlly,
but in the entire community, cannot
be more fittingly expressen than in
the words chosen by her pastor as the
foundation for his funeral discourse:
"Thou shalt be missed, because thy
seat will be empty."

S. E. Notson Is In receipt of a let
ter from J. R. Ellison, general man
ager of the Ellison-White Chautaqua
System In Portland in which is prom
ised an excellent Chautaqua for
Heppner next summer, since enough

Dear Mr. Notson:
We are in receipt of Chautaqua
contract through our Miss Young for
the Chautauqua at Heppner next
Sjnntf We want to congratulate
you good people over there for the
progressive move you have taken.
Also I wish to say that the Chautau
qua will be one of the most popular
features that Heppner has ever at
tempted. Every where we go the
expression is the same. After the
Chautauqua is on for two or three
days, people begin saying, "If we
had only known how good this was
going to be we could have packed the
tent the first night."
Through the excellent publicity
manager, local people will be able
to learn from time to time the var
ious excellent features which will be
presented by the Chautauqua.
Oregon Station Leads in Dry Farm
Oregon Agricultural College, Cor-
vallis. Ore., Dec. 14, "The Oregon
Experiment Station is the only one in
the United States that has made a
success of growing legumes on a
practical scale under extreme dry
farming conditions." said Professor
H. D. Scudder on his return from the
International Dry Farming Congress,
held in Wichita, Kansas. "For this
reason the Oregon exhibit attracted
a great deal of interest, being contin
ually surrounded by large crowds of
people who asked many questions
concerning the legume production.
"The field peas and alfalfa exhibit
ed at this congress were grown at
Moro and Burns, where the annual
rainfall averages less than twelve
inches. Other dry farm products
were displayed from the experiment
stations of this state grown under a
lower rainfall than any other exhlb
its in the entire exposition.
"Since the purpose of the dry
farming congress is to distribute
knowledge gained by the experiment
stations so that farmers can put this
knowledge in to practical use. it is ex
pected that the legume exhibit of the
Oregon station will do much to In
troduce and extend the practice of
growing legumes on dry farms. The
dry farming experiment stations
work in Oregon is only about six
years old, and the early and marked
success in growing legumes for crop
and for Boll fertility purposes is one
of its important achievements."
An address on "Dry Farming in
Oregon and What the Oregon Exper
iment Station is Doing With Dry
Farming Legumes," was delivered at
this congress by Professor Scudder,
who is a member of the executive
board of the congress.

the gathering was very enthusiastic

touched upon the needs of a live
commercial club, what the Club could
accomplish for the good of Heppner
and Morrow county, and Dr. Conder
spoKe or the need of co-operation
between the Club and varinua nthor
organizations of the county.
The Club decided to hold a clam

Buys a Few Horses.
John H. Luck, of Pendleton, has
been in Heppner during the week
picking up some horses suitable for
cavalry use. A large number of an
imals were brought in and Inspected
by Mr. Luck but he made few pur
chases as much of the stuff was not
up to the standard he had fixed and
on the other hand the prices offered
did not seem to appeal very strongly
to our horsemen, many of wKom have
a feeling that they will do much bet
ter iu this regard a few months
hence. However, the standard fixed
for cavalry horses has to be met and
there is little use in trying to induce
one of these buyers to take an ani
mal for the service that does not
come up to the requirements. Mr.
Luck did his own inspecting and
gathered in a few head.
(Jets Feet Frozen.
While going from town out to his
sheep ranch last Friday evening.
John Mollahan was so unfortunate as
to get a pair of frozen feet. He did
not realize that the temperature was
such that he was in danger of frost
ing feet or hands but as he was on
the road for considerable time the
cold got in its work and he found he
was badly frost bitten. He was
brought back to town and has since
been under the care of a physician.
Dr. McMurdo states that the man is
now getting along all right and is iu
no danger of being deprived of the
use of his pedal extrenieties.
