Government school at the Agency
and from here he entered the school
at Chemawa graduating from that
school in 1907. While at School be

that business to the present time.
From Chemawa he went to the Cush
man school at Tacoma, Washington,
as an employee and remained in tha
service for 25 years. Here be met
and married his wife. She was a
teacher In the school and a stenog
rapher. He was in the school so long
he became a part of It and was noted
for his industry and attention to busi
ness. He was also a good musician
and was vice-president of the Musi
cian Union at Tacoma, where he now
lives. He owns a forty acre farm
near the city. ' This farm is set to
"berries, mostly strawberries and rasp
"berrles. He keeps the farm rented
and lives in the city where be can

Jess Daniels started out Friday
with the big truck loaded with 25
lop pickers and their baggage. The
reads were a bit slippery as it had
rained some during the day. The
pickers were going to the hop fields
near Independence. On leaving Cor
VEllla Jess had a blowout. This de
layed bim and added, something to
the bill of expense. But It was soon'
tixed and he went on his way. When
a political meeting blows out it don't
amount to much but when an auto
tire blowsout it amounts to a good
deal and always delays.
Mr. and Mrs. R. E. Chandler Have
gone to McMinnville to spend a few
days and to have their baby examined
by a specialist. He went out with
his father and mother who had been
here on a visit.
