Now that spring has really decided to be
clothed in green, and the trees and flowers
are beginning to open their thousand

than ever. Among the homes that are
pleasantest and with which Nature has
been most prodigal, are Mrs, KlualH-th War

'Fir Orvne," K. K. Kellogg's "White

and Wni, Partlow's farm, once Captain

Perhaps the finest view of Mount Hood is
caught from Fir drove, which reminds us
of Martiia Callahan Havward's sketch of
"O. mounuiu beautiful aud grand!
As in the valley here I stand
And gaie upon thy lofty height.
Whose glittering crown retire! th light
Of changing skies, my wouderitie thoucht
Marvels at what licd's hand hath wrought.
Wrapped In yna unet' softer glow
Thy tender radiance seems to throw
Around my heart a deeper rharm;
Sets all my pulses thritliCK warm
With aspirations from above.
Of faith, and hope and sweeter love."
We should enjoy another poem from the
pen of our gifted Cams colleague; some
thing sentimental if we were left to choose.
We think of poetry as Ruckert expresses it :
" In sooth, a witching thins; Is poesy;
But whether poet
Ee the magician, or bewitched be.
Now who nuy know It"
It is said that the Swiss are ennobled by
their surroundings, and the towering Jung
frau (Yirxin) instils not only republican
spirit but virtue and morality. We are
equally blessed. Mount St. Helens stands
arrayed in all her virgin splendor; and is
there any one so so exalted or yet one
plunged so low in the vortes of crime who
will not pause to admire and benefit bv
spotlss purity? No! unless, as Trench says, ! " delegates to the county conven-"si-miavbe
clasped so tight that we can-i,ion: Henry Nachand, Richard Ula.-.-pool,
not see its lace.''
" We get back our mete as we measure
We cannot Jo wrong ni feel ritrtit,
Nurcan we give pain and gain pleasure,
For j'l.-tif-e avenge each slight.
The air for the wing of the sparrow,
The bush torthe robin and wren,
But always the path that is narrow
And .-traight for the children of men."

Social Events In the Town Some Industrial
Canby, April 1J. A very pleasant even
ing was passed with Mr. Charles I.uelling
and family last Wednesday, the occasion
being Charles's twenty-sixth birthday. As
was intended the party was a complete sur
prise. The evening was passed in games,
social amusement, and every thing the in
genious minds of a crowd of young people
could suggest, until too soon they were
aware that it was close to 12 o'clock. Most
of the young folks of the town were pres
ent. There was also an enjoyable evening
passed at Knight's hall at a play party last
Friday in honor of Mr. Marion White of
Marquam, who returned to his home the
following day, and Mr. Beth Luelling who
