Man's Duty to Ills Fnmily.
A couplo of wcelta ago, Rov. M. A.
Jlatthowe, pastor of tho First Preaby
terlan Churcb, Seattle, Washington,
tu Iked Ufa insurance to hlsj family,
tuklng for tils subject, "Is domestic
safety ussured and personal righteous
ness aided by fraternal Insurance?"
his text being I Timothy 5:8: "But if
any provide not for his own, and espe
daily those of his own house, ho hath
denied the faith nnd is worse than an
Infidel." Tho geutleman delivered an
excellent discourse, proving con
clnsively that It was the duty of every
innu to carry lifo insurance, aud dur
jng his sermon mado tho following
statements, which aro worthy of con
"Every yonng man ought to havo
eorao Insurance. Young men, of all
men, ought to bo Insured. There are
many whose salaries aro so small they
cannot afford a largo premium policy.
Then let them take a cheaper insur
ance, Somo ono sayn, 1 Cheap insur
ance 19 dangerous, and fraternal com
paules often fail.' That statement is
untrue, hut admit that somo do fail;
not a dollar has been lout, Every dol
larof fraternal insurance goes direct
to.help some widow and comfort some
suffering orphan. It is truo charity,
and you were protected during tho life
of tho company. Anything which
brings men together and Inspires
friendship, confidence and brotherly
love baa my support. Fraternal ItjBur
anoo has. united men In a bond that
cannot bo broken. It has bridged the
grave and mado the surviving mem
berg the .personal guardian of the
wldqvj, and' tho orphans. Jf I could go
into overy humble home and light a
lire In tho grate, put a warm meal on
the table, cover oaoh bod with blankets
and mako ha"ppy each child my cup
of Joy -would overflow. If I cannot go
hi person, I pan go In a fraternal In
surance certificate. My monthly prom
Ujm shall take J he Wings of tho morn
ing nnd carry to honied of-sorrow, com
fort and brotherly support). God bless
tho day of ihsuraubo. A man owes it
to the State, to himself aud to his
famflv to insure his life."
Coal and 0S Too.
. Oil, coal and gas has been found on
the ltarnctt ranch, near Culver.
Thero appears to bo no question but
that tho abovo is truo, judging from
a letter written to the Crook County
Jotu'nal by. ?Ir, Baruett himself, as
Editor Tho Journal: Yours of tho
18th lust, at hand, and will say in
reply that I havo not ns yet found
petroleum In any groat quantities, but
wo havo found flno indications and
thoy get better as wo go down. The
well Ib.iiow.215 feet deep and in a gray
SiimMono formation, Tho Blush' looks
ns if It might bo half oil and will burn
readily when (lro is applied to it,
There havo boon sqveral Eastern men
hero and they pronounce it a sure
pruspoot for potroloum. Tho gas is
esouplng from tho woll aH the present
tlmo and sounds like Btearii from au
euglrio. Wo havo also found coal In
small quantities. Very truly,

More and Smaller Farms.
Wliero wheat is the principal nnd
most profitable crop, as in portions of
Eastern Oregon, large farms yield not
only tho larger profits in tho nggrc
gnto, but per acre, In such cases it
would be useless "to ndvUo their break
ing tip Into smaller wheat farms, even
If the ndvlco were wise. A dairyman
who conducts his business on a large
scale also needs quite a largo farm.
An brchardist, too, can make more
money per acre, perhaps, from a large
than a small orchard. But consider
ing tho matter generally, and taking
nil kinds of agricultural and horticul
tural products into view, Oregon
would be vastly better ofl if most of
the lafgo land-holdings wero divided
up, and so multiplied Into threa, five
or ton times ns many holdings.
For many profitable purposes, in the
well settled portions of, the state, and
near a transportation line, :a small
tract of land is sufficient. It can
furnish tho owner wllh enough em
ployment, (if ho makes the best and
utmost use of it, and it will support n
good-sized family aud in many cases
provide a comfortable bank account
Owners of large tracts of fertile
land, much of which Is practically
useless and profitless to them, would
themselves be better off after selling
tho greater portions -of their holdings.
Thus they would Increase tho popula
tion of their neighborhoods, would de
crease tho per capita taxes, would get
belter wagon reads and perhaps an
electrio road, would havo money for
improvement or investment, and the
fraction they retained would In many
cases bo rendered within a very few
years as valuable as tho whole original
tract would havo been If retained and
This Is a matter that must; be left
entirely to the will and dlsposiilon of
the laud-ownprs," but it should do no
harm to suggest to them occasionally
that they would not only greatly
benefit their communities, and the
state at large, but themselves as well
by selling pfl" portions of large nnd not
fully utilized .holdings at reasonable
prices. Portland Journal.
ProspcrIty,for Farmers;' '
Never on tho whole has the entire
country been more universally pros
pcrous. And the finest fact concern
ing this general prosperity is, that un
like heretofore at such times, when
tho farmers and the agricultural ele
ment tagged along in the procession
somewhere toward tho rear, now tho
country people, tho backbone and
mainstay of tho entire land, lead the
line. They never heretofore felt times
that will compare with their condition
of today. The most frequent ad
jective that used to be employed in
describing the tillers of our fields and
the converters of our immense areas
of bottoms and uplands and prairies,
etc., was as "the poor Jnrmer." The
adjective no longer applies now when
the mortgage has everywhere been
lifted, aud replaced by all sorts of
luxuries. The husbandmen aro lit
orally rolling! In; wealth, buying or
able to buy for themselves aud their
womenfolks everything they -rcqdlre,
and Indeed much more, neatly every
luxury they crave. Every ono knows
that IS a fast. '
Itev. 0. P. 'Bailey, the craok mis
sionary of the Missionary Baptist
persuasion, has announced his 'inten
tion of coming to Madras to hold a
aeries of revival meetings. ReyiO. W.
Trlplott, of Prlneville, will assist him
and tvill commeuce next Monday even
ing at 7 o'clock; 'llov. 'Bfilby will
arrive soon thereafter aud will hold
the fort until conditions indicate
otherwise. Bov. Ballby Is a seff
educatod Westerner, n true son of the
soli aud his preaching is welcomed
everywhere he goes. Our people will
bo glad to meet him.

Owing to a constant increase in patronage,
our present building has become too small ;
therefore we are compelled to erect a large,
commodious store building, in which we shall
be better prepared to wait upon our numer
ous friends. A force of men is now at work,
and we hope to occupy our new building by
January 1st with -the largest stock of general
merchandise in Northern Crook county, at
prices that defy competition.
OUR XM AS. PRESENT
to you is a reduction in prices from now till
January 1st. Can you buy the same goods
at these prices anywhere south of the Co
lumbia river ? ?
