Mrs. W. H. Dempster and two little

Redland a few days last week.
F. F. Wilcox's little daughter Ora is

The entertainment given by the I-adies'
Aid Society was greeted by a crowded house
and the program was excellent and a credit
to those who took part in the exercises.
The society extends its hearty thanks to
Miss Taylor for ber kindness in helping to
get up the program and for the efficient
manner in which she acted the part of
doorkeeper. She was certainly the right
person in the right place. The society also
thanks Miss Anna Funk lor the successful
manner in which she managed the tableaux
and in otherwise contributing to the enter
tainment Ella and Eva Dempster, of Ore
gon City, and Uertie and Clara Sayvere, of
Viela, are also entitled to our gratitude for
helping us with their singing and recita
tions. Where all did so well it is difficult
to say who is most entitled to special men
tion. We wish we could speak as well for cer
tain boys and young men who were among
the audience, who so tar forgot their self
respect as to disturb the meeting by ungen
tlemanly conduct. Patience sometimes
ceases to be a virtue, and it would be well
lor these thoughtless parsons to no longer
tax the forbearance of the community.

Passed to the higher life, seemingly of
natural decay, April 4, 1805, at the resi
dence of her daughter, Mrs. Emma
Capps, Mm. Kitty Ann Welch, in the
88th year of her age. She leaves two
sons and three daughters, together with
numerous friends to mourn her demise.
Mrs. Welch, whose maiden name was
Robinson, was born in Carroll country,
Kentucky, January 19, 1803, where she
rniaieu until the Huh year ol her age
when she was married to Dr. I'resly
Welch and subsequently moved with
her husband to the state of Ohio, re
maining there a few years, then the pair
moved to Indiana. After making that
state their borne for a while they moved
to Missouri where they remained until
the spring of 1845, at which time, to
gether with their four children, started
on that perilous journey with ox teams
across the plains to Oregon. Arriving
at The Dalles in October, that point
being the end of the road for wagons at
that 'ime, the alternative of continuing
the journey on rafts or small boats or
crossing the Cascade mountains on pack
animals was presented. They chose the
latter, following an Indian trail, which
trail subsequently became the line of
the well known Barlow road that lead
south of Mt. Hood to the falls of the
WilUmetts, at which place they arrived
November 1. Soon after their arrival
they located the Preidy Welch donation
lan'' claim five niilea nortlmaHt of Oregon
City, which place remained the home of
the deceased until the day of her death.
Mrs. Welch, at an early age in life
joineil the Methodist church and re
mained a consistent memlier thereot
through all her later years, an example
of piety and devotion to her family, hon
ored and reflected by all whose good
fortune it was to Income aciiiinted with
her, fihe was the mother of nine child
ren, four sons and five daughters, seven
of whom were brought up to manhood
and womanhood and took an active part
in the affairs of the world. Her re
mains were interred in the Damascus
cemetery, Rev. Gabriel Sykes of Oregon
City, officiating at Ihe iuneral, which
was largely attended, and being a
pioneer in the early settlement of the
country, me tot lowing .named persons
being the earliest immigrants available
at the time, were choen as pallbearers:
Wm. A. Mills, immigrant of 1843; Mar
ion Phillips, immigrant of 18-lfi; Daniel
and J. A. Talbert, immigrants of 18T,2;
Alex Thompson and Wm. Kee, immi
grants of 1873.
''One by one the leaves are falling,
So like these the pioneer.
Each rriUHt yield to God's sure cilling,
In the day that death draws near."
