DOME FROM ALL OVER THE STATE OF OREGON TO ATTEND
Big Dinner in Walnut Grove and Toasts by Various Notables-Jolly Good
Time, After Which Officers are Elected for Year.
FOUR GENERATIONS OF
The Henkle family are as pro
lific as they are prosperous.
They are scattered over the earth
from Saxony to Ohio, from Ohio
to Iowa and from Iowa to Ore
gon. From fifty to one hundred
of them hold annual reunions m
Pleasant Valley near Philomath.
Yesterday the third gathering of
this character was held at the
home of Mr. and Mrs. Jacob
Henkle, pioneers of 1852. There '
were eighty-eight persons pres
ent, chiefly from Oregon and
Washington; and many were
kept away for reasons unavoid
able. Harrison Johnson who
came from Lebanon boasted of
the fact that he had lived as
. many years as there were peo
ple present, while Jacob Henkle
'who is eighty years old thought
he could run a foot race with any
body in the crowd. In fact, the
ladies congratulated these men
who are as sunshiny as boys
. themselves. Children were there
half a century old and some near-
ing three score years and ten.
There were grandchildren galore
whose Jine forms, figures and
strength ' bespoke the heritage
that has , been bequeathed to
them through a long line of fam
ilies ; above mediocrity. These
are largely tie defendants of
Jacob Henkle, of Iowa, who like
the Jacob of old, brought his
family to the new land of prom
. , The relatives assembled early

m the day in a tent fifty feet
long prepared especially for the
occasion. The tables as well as
the tent within were sumptu
ously decorated - with walnut
branches raised in that locality.
After a short season of visiting
and handshaking and so on,
came the dinner such a dinner
as only the Henkles and other
Oregonians know how to pre
pare. Mrs. Mary Grant Henkle,
of Portland, officiated as toast
mistress. Urcle Jake " Henkle1
extended a hearty welcome to
all and exhorted them to con
tinue the Henkle reunion annu
ally throughout the future.
Uncle Harrison Johnson said he
had been acquainted, with the
Henkle family intimately for
more than seventy years and he
had never . known a black . sheep
among them; .and that their
motto had been to teach their
c hildren in early life to worship
God and to be industrious. Wm.
McCoy, who was brought' up at
Belief ountain, but who now
liv es at Oaksdale, Wash., spoke
feelingly upon the debt that the
present generations of the Hen
kle family owe to their ancestry.
Rev. Bonebrake seemed to de
light in the fact that he was
married and that his wife is a
Henkle. ; Milton Wyatt who had'
been kept busy during the whole
day looking after the young
ladies toasted them enthusiaS'
tically; but was reminded by
the toastmistress that, the young
man must not undertake to
m onopolize ; the whole business,
