gone to help make up the cycle of past
ages. When this abstract thing which
we call time shall be no more, in the
grand summing up of events, no period
will shine with greater brilliancy of
progress and achievement than the
century now closed.
Last Thursday evening Mrs. John
Steidsm gave a party in honor of her
young sister, Emma Jones, who came
from Fishers, Oregon, to spend Christ
mas with her Cams friends. Cards and
dancing were the amusements of th
evening. Refreshments were served
and soon after midnight the guesta dis
persed, voting it a very plea ant occa
Among the many elegant presents on
the Christmas tree Tuesday evening was
puree for the Rev. Dunlap, containing
17.75; also a handsome rug for Mrs
Dunlap. Pastor Dunlsp is the regularly
appointed M. . preacher for this dace.
At present, as bia field is large, he can
only give one service in each month,
and that on Monday evening; but it is
expected that better arrangements will
ibe made as soon as possible.
Last Sabbath Pastor Englebart made
an earnest appeal to the officers, teach
ere and members of the Zion, Evangeli
cal, Sunday school in the interests of the
school. As the usual Christmas tree for
children was omitted this year, the
church people decided to place a copy of
(be Magnet, a young people's paper, in
each family represented in the school
"a Christmas gift to last the year." The
election of officers for the ensuing year
took place after the preaching service.
Dr. J. Casto has ret) ted bis place,
"The Alpine Farm." for a term of three
years to parties from Kansas.
The Christmas spirit of peace and
good will prevailed in this community,
and was exemplified by a united gather
ing on Christmas night in the old M. E
church. The somewhat lengthy pro
gram received the patient, kindly at
tention of a large audience, later, the
festivities of an old-time Christmas tree
were enjoyed by old and young. The
tree was so laden with decorations and
presents, it was r.ot thought safe to light
the tapers which had been provided
In fact, it was lovely enough without.
Many thanks are due Mrs. Ben Faust
and her young assistants, lor their
efforts aa tree committee.

Not easy to cure

It stops falling,
promotes growth, and

Ilow Oranges ire ricked.
Oba.nge, Cal., Dec. 15. Thinking it
would be of interest to your readers to
know how oranges are picked and pre
pared for market, I tend the following
description of the operations of the crew
to which the writer Monged :
The ciew is composed of from 10 to 20
men, eacu man being provided with a
wheel, a picking sack and a pair of clip
pers. ine bicycle so as to be able to
move rapidly from one orchard to anoth
er and the clippers to cut the ripe fruit
from the tree.
After being pinked, the oranges are
hauled to the packing houie, where they
are flrst run through a brunhing machine
which removes all the dirt and dust.
From the brushes they aie carried to the
grader, where they are sorted into the
several different si.e, from 90's to 240's,
indicating the average number of oranges
in a box. After being graded, the or
anges are wrapped in tissue paper and
packed into boxes ready for shipment
the packing being done by nirls, each
girl working so deftly and swiftly that in
an incredibly short time a car load is
ready for market.
Ihus far the oranges have all been
shipped to the Texas market for the hol
iday trade. A 1'ickkk.

The Orrgonlan's Annual.
The Oregonian iasued on January 1, a
3d page annual New Year's edition.
This is a regular feature of the Oregon
ian, and these editions have proven of
immense value in advertising the state
and the Northwest generally. Many
thousands of copies are sent eanf eacb
year and many people have been In
duced to investigate the resources of this
magniflcient country by menus of them.
The annual this year is a particularly
tine edition. Well gotten op in every
' The Stat-mnau's tnual.
The Salem Statesman iasue l a sixty-
page, illustrated supplement, on New
Vear's. It is a One piece of work in
every way. It sets forth the beautiei
and resources of Oregon's capital city in
a very favorable light, and it also pur
trays the attractive featutes of the great
Willamette valley in an interesting wsy.
It is a very creditable edition.

When llarrlaou was elected In 1S40,
the iK'iniH-nita asserted that bia suc
cess was due partly to fraudulent vot
I dr. which was made possible by the
lack of a definite election day. It was
alleged that Kentucky and Ohio Whlga
had voted In both states, the election
being held on different daya. Ho
the Democrats passed tho law
now on the statute books making the
first Tuesday after the llrst Monday
At that time hufflve of the 2d states
had their elections In November. In
Michigan aud Mississippi voting was
carried on through two days the flmt
Monday and the following Tuesday
New York had three election dnys-the
first Monday, Tuesday and Wetlnea
day but had finally confined voting to
the middle day. or the first Tuesday
after the first Monday. Massachusetts
chose state officers on the second Mon
day In November and Delaware on the
aeeond Tuesday. Bo congress selected
the first Tuesday after the first Mon
day to consult the convenience of three
states out of five, one of the three be
