The church was over full, fully one-third of those present standing through the entire pro gram. Miss Bessie Collison and her troup of little ones from the public school, together with Masters Shed and Leon Rosebrooks, furnished the entire program, which was thoroughly enjoyed and appreci ated. Such singing and acting cannot be found in another primary school in Oregon.. The Leader would say more but does not wish to flatter into, vanity . a disposition so devoid of that failing. There was all kinds of eatables and baskets to be had and those in attendance knew just what to do with . them, and., they did it. The proceeds were $27.50, everybody enjoyed themselves and the church debt is lessened by this hard work of the ladies. May they continue to succeed. . Church Notes.

A great many repub licans have censured President McKinley for not causing a change long ago, but it will be noticed that he makes changes with due deliber ation, which is not a fault but a praiseworthy rule of action.
