his modesty had kept him silent so long.
Another Pioneer I'snmciI on.
The roiiimuiilly at Ilutte Creek lost a
very worthy citizen by the death of
William Allen Jnck, which occurred
r.Uuuiy 10, JHH5, ut hi h.me near
MHrrpmm, ('liiikmiiHS county, Oregon.
Mr. Jack had been feeble for several
year and hi death wa not unex
pected and by him not unprepared for,
a ho divided hi farm among hi child
reu and gave them deed some two
year ago, reserving for hluiwlf and wife
life estate in the hind, a precaution
probably unneecKK.y with hi prudent
children, hut generally too much neg
lected by pioneer. Mr. Jack, though a
pioneer of 1847, did not avail himself of
tbe opportunity ollered by (he donation
land law. Hi parent were ged and
rather Infirm Ukmi their arrival in the
territory and needed the care and sup
port of their children, which wa freely
and telf-dunyingly given. I well recol
lect the reply of the futher, Jeremiah
Jack, when I asked him why hi ton,
William and Hubert, did not take claims
when (hut beautiful Ilutte Creek country
wa unoccupied? "Oh, we could not be
sepemled," and he continued,' "My
wife ami I have taken a section and Por
ter bus taken a half section and don't
you think that a section and a half of
land is enough for our three lxjys?" I
must not omit that the suid section and
a half of land wa til in one body, lying
on both side of Itutta crock, including
larKO area ol splendid bottom land, and
that the parent and three boys, Wil
liam, Kohort and Porter, lived in the
suine house. Tlio futher wa Irlih, the
mother wa Scotch, but no Jarring feud
ever came Into that home. Dillerences
of opinion, which were firujiiont aud ra
tionally disposed of, seemed to weld
them more firmly together. True enough
they could not bear to be eieraled, and
a tougti arithmetical problem wa prei
ented to me in the year 1803 when the
father desired me to run a line dividing
the section from the half section and
paaslng through the house so that he
could swear to a residence on hi land
and Porter en hi. The problem wa
atisfactorily solved and the require
ments of the land law fully obeyed.
The adage of "like father like son" is
reinforced in the person and family of
William Jack, for that too i a model
family. Hi marriage to Mis Mary
Jane Weddle January fi, 18T4, wa fortu
nate and their children, Barton, J. E.,
W. S and A. F. Jack and Mr. Nettie
Albright anil Mr. Susan Hook are
worthy of their anceator.
It seems to be a fashionable idea with
too many people that those who never
quarrel lack couraite and force and that
such are a goody-goody set who can't be
depended upon when severe trial come.
No be tier ptoof of the falsity of such no
tions can he found than the li'e history
fo William Jack. He was born August
Sttth, near Madlsonville, Monroe county,
East Tennesee, where he lived until
March 18:10, when his father and
family, consisting of his wife, three son
and one daughter, moved to Sedalia,
Missouri. Here they lived eleven years,
then the family Joined an emigrant
train bound for Oregon, which they
reached in October of the same year,
1847. The winter of that year the family
lived near Oregon CUy and the spring
of 1848 moved to their claim on Butte
craek. Wiliam Jack, though worn and
wasted by the overland journey of some
five months duration, could And cause
and courage enough to Join a conymny of
volunteers enlisted for the tayuse war
in Eastern Oregon. He bore unllinch
ingly every duty during that rigorous
winter and wa one of the company who
buried the bleaching bones of Dr. Whit
man and family. Arriving home late
in the spring of 1848, he and his brother
tut about preparing for a trip to the Cal
ifornia gold mines, which they reached
in the fall. But the hardahip he had
undergone were beginning to tell upon a
constitution never strong and icknea
constantly interrupted the mining busi
ness. Despairing of success, he took
passage for Oregon on an old Bail vessel
which made the trip in twenty-one day
at a cost of $1.0 for each passenger
Mr. Jack became a member of the Cum
berland Presbytersan church In 1842 and
though thete ha been some dissutiafai!
tion in that church as well as in others,
he lias kept on in the straight and quiet
I became acquainted with the family
of Jeremiah Jack immediately after my
arrival In the Wyiamotto valley, in the
fall of 1851, and I can say that every
since, and it covers a long period of
forty-lour years, I have never exper
ienced anything but unalloyed pleasure
when we met. Honorable, candid, pa
tient, Intelligent people, not unduly sel
fish and KWHessed of a fund of humor
and delicacy of appreciation which baf
fled the disagreeable pricks which are
wont to make such woeful rent in this
world's peace and pleasures. Why
shouldn't I long to meet them?

The lecture room of the Cong, church
w filled to It uttermost capacity last
Friday evening. The occasion wa a
very euihulutlu oau. Thu Philomath
en and Franklin Sodotlc met In a
Joint debate and tbe topic lor discussion
was. Kesolvcd, That Increased wealth
is a benefit to the moral of the people.
The former club, which was represented
by Messr. Bert Beatie, Clarence Purdoui
and Arthur Ilolden took the affirmative
side of the question, while the invinci-
lo Franklin Lyceum, upholding the
negative, wa represented by Ja. Mathe
son, Fred Moindle and Edgar Meresse.
Tno meeting wa culled to order by
Dr. Fernn. Hurt Beultie led the affirm
ative in a most convincing manner, and
wa followed by hi colleague. The
m-giitive, led by the fascinating and able
speech of . Matheson, soon overbal
anced the affirmative ; then came the el
oquent appeal of Fred Meindle, which
made a gieat impression upon the judge
and audience. The decision of the judges
was rendered, two in favor of tbe nega
tive and one In favor of the affirmative.
The meeting then adjourned.
This Mfcond victory of the Frojiklin
Lyceum over the Plulo, bring great
credit and congratulation to the former
club; but one knows not which to admire
the more, the gallantry of the attack or
the lieroiem of the defense. In such a
victory is glory and in uch a defeat no
disgrace. A Bov.

A Piece of Her Mind.
A lady correspondent ha this to say :
" I wint to give a piece of my mind to
a certain class who object to advertising,
when It cost them anything this won't
coat them a cent.
I suffered a living death for nearly two
year with headache, backache, in psin
standing or walking, was being liteially
dragged out of existence, my misery in
creased by drugging.
At last, in despair I committed the
sin of trying an advertised medicine,
Dr. Pierce' Favorite Prescription, and
It restored me to the blessedness of
sound health. I honoi the physician
who when he knowns he can cure, has
the moral courage to advertise the fact."
The medicine mentioned cure all the
delicate diseases peculiar to females, as
"Female Weakness," periodical pains,
irregularities. nervou prostration,
tpasm, chorea or St. Vitus' Dance,
sleeplessness, threatened insanity.
To permanently cure constipation, bll

to try an old remedy in a new way
and accordingly took a tablespoonful
(four time the usual dose) of Chamber

that her cold bad almost entirely disap
peared . During the day she took s few
doses of the remedy, (one teaspoonful at
a time) and at night again took a table'
spoonful before going to bed, and on the
following mornir.g awoke free from all
symptoms of the cold. Since then she
has on several occasions used the remedy
in like manner with the same results
and is much elated over her discovery ol

ret the number or their victims sinus into
ntignificance when compared with tboae of
consumption. Comparatively few people
know what to do for their loved ones when
they ace them gradually lose strength, lose
color, manifest feeble vitality and emacia
tion, or develop a cough, with difficult
breathing, or hemorrhage. Cod liver oil
was for a long time given in all auch caws,
but the poor succesa attending it nae
counted with its nauneatinc taste has led
many practitioners, aa well as the public at
l irge, to place their main reliance in Dr.
Pierce 'a Golden Medical Discovery. It de
serves early attention and will prove effect
ual not in every case but in a large percentage
of cases, and we believe that fully oS per
cent of all case of consumption can, if taken
in the early stages of tbe dieae, be cured
with the " Discovery." Dr. Pierce doea not
ask people to believe until they have in
vestigated for themselves. A pamphlet ha
been published having the names, addresse
and photographs of a large number of those
cured of consumption, bronchitis, lingering;
coughs, asthma, chronic nasal catarrh and
