ter and Mrs. Ross, who will retire
from this mission at the close of this

tils farewell sermon Sunday at eleven

preciative audience. The ' sermon
sparkled with the gems of ruth as
taught by the Great Master. 'Brother
land Sister Rose have been at this -mission

forts and the loyal support of the
community back of them caused Mr.

he had not found any of the churches
in sucii "S cond'.t!(n financially;
with ni: claims paid up to date and the
chare, proprty newly painted and
everything in first class order; as -he
found It at Sil.-!iz. This was a very
fine compliment and the people
greatly appreciated it. The board of
stewards who handled this matter
and brought about such a fine condi
tion of finances were composed of the
following ladies: Mrs. 1i. L. Chalcraft,
Mrs. Anna Bell Hall, Mrs. Alec Cat

It is a Market road and Andrew Por
ter had charge of the work. It is said
about twice as much gravel had been
put on the road this year as there
was last year, and if the people who
have parsed over the road ere good
Judges they all say the road is in fine
condition and will stand the winter
travel if trucks and wagons are not
loaded too heavily when going over it
This, of course, is a matter that will
be looked after. A part of the Klam
ath Grade has been rocked and about
one quarter of a mile north of the
first bridge on the road leading to the
Lower Farm has been rocked also
