which he endeavored to build up ac

he was of a positive nature and deep
religious convictions. The record of
his christian life was bright and unsul

dealings with His fellovy men, his influ

which shortened his life did not find
him unprepared for the final summons.'

That Other Route. Says the Cres
cent City "Courier" of August 11th:
Considerable enthusiasm seems to pre
vail at Smith River, upon tho subject
of their proposed new wagon road over
the mountains. .We like to seo inter
est shown in., a new enterprise, but
think it is useless for our SmitH River
friends to spend their money in survey
ing a route from there to Illinois val
ley. They certainly cannot do much
without the help of Jackson and Jose
phine counties, and it is not likely
that the people of these two
counties will bo willing, ,afer all the'
efforts tha't have been made and money
expended to sur.vey a route to Crescent
City by way of Gasquot's, to abandon
said route and spend as much time jn
looking for a route in a different direc
tion', a3 it has taken to wake up the
citizens. of Crescent City to the impor
tance of a .wagon road to Southern
Oregon. The character of tho road
proposed' to pass, jsj. pretty well known,
aud if a road can be, built with less ex
pense than can tho Crescent City
Wagon Road, we will venturo to
say tha thediffere'neo necessary for
construction, will not be worth talking
