A HOMESTEADER KILLEd.
Joseph E. Gorry, a laborer on
tho government work at Celilo,
was instantly killed in an acci
dent last week. He was tend
ing the derrick and as a box
of rocks was brought up it
swung oyer, Gorry being mash
ed between the box of rocks
and the rock wall with suffi
cient force to kill him a' most
Gorry was about 40 years of
age, and had been a resident of
The Dalles for a number of
years. Among the papers found
in his possesion, and which
were turned over to the coroner,
was a Receiver's Duplicate Re
ceipt for a homestead entry of
land in section 11, Tp. 10 south,
range 14 east, which is the
township lying east of the
Agency Plains. Gorry left a son
living in Portland, and a daugh
ter who resides at The Dalles.
Miss Mary Jennings and Mr. Fred C.
Missall were marrjed at the home of the
bride's parents at this place at 12 o'clock
noon, March 7, 1906. The brief cere
mony which made them man and wile
was said by Rev. J. K. Craig of the M.
E. church, only the family of the bride
being present to witness the ceremony.
The bride is a daughter of Mr. and
Mrs. N. S. Jennings, and has enjoyed un
usual popularity among all of her acquain
tances during the three years of her rest
dence here. Coming originally from Vir
ginia, Miss Jennings ha.sf been a.resident
of lhis state for s;ven years, the fust; four
having been spent in Western Oregon
and.it was during her residence in the
Willamette yalley that the romance be
gan winch yesterday culminated in her
marriage to Mr. Missall. The groom is a
prominent young business man from Mo
Coy in Polk county, for which place Mr
and Mrs. Missall left yesterday afternoon.
They expect to return to this place to
make their home some time in the near

MADRAS. - OREGON
Ferd MacCalUster of Prineville, who
owns one of the finest alfal ranches on
Crooked river, was in town on Tuesday
evening. Mr. iWacLallisler has been one
of the successful farmers of this county
and he has many theories about farming
in this region which he has put to a prac
tical test and found gocd. Among other
practices which he says are wrong is that
of letting the land lie idle during summer
fallow. He says that insteed of letting
the l.hd lie idle, it should be planted to
corn cr held peas, whicn . mane excellent
feed for hogs, and that the value of the
summer-fallow lor next year's wheat crop
is not impaired in the slightest. This
idea of Mr. MacCallisters is well worth
the attention of the farmers of this sec
tion who, owning only small tracts, can
ill afford to lose the use of half of their
land each year while summer-fallowing
It is known that corn yields heavily upon
this soil, every experimental crop in that
cereal in this section of country having
proved entirely satisfactory.
