TOLEDO. LINCOLN COUNTY. OREGON. FRIDAY, OCTOBER 28th, 1921.
Dr. C. H. Newth of Pntlomath came
over Tuesday, October 25th, to see
Mrs. Margaret L. Brown Cain who wag
dangerously sick with pneumonia fol
lowing an attack of flu. This is a
dangerous form of pneumonia. Mrs.
Cain lingered a long un.il Monday
morning at 4 A. M. when she 'quietly
and peacefully passed away. Mrs.
Cain was 23 years old and was the
, oldest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. John
L. Brown who live on a farm on Drift
Creek one mile from Millport where
the daughter died. Mrs. Cain was of
a lovable, generous disposition and
very popular in the social circles
where she lived. The funeral service
was conducted by Rev. Cain, pastor of
the M. E. Church at Toledo. The In
terment took place near the home of
her parents. She was soon to have
been married but cruel Fate ordered
It otherwise. Instead of a wedding it
was a funeral and her beautiful trous
seau was used for that purpose. Her
Intended husband was a brother to
her sister's husband, Mr. Max, who
lives at Marshfleld. This sudden and
unexpected death cast a gloom over
the entire community.
Within the last few days we have
been favored with an old fashioned
Oregon rain, but as we have been
blessed with such fine fall weather,
we have no complaint to make. Most
of the farmers have their farm work
done and most of the potatoes have
been dug and put in the dry. Since
the raise In the river the salmon and
salmon trout have been coming up
the river by hundreds. The river
banks have been pretty well lined
with fishermen who had fine sport
catching the big speckled trout. It is
no exaggeration to say that Slletz and
Its trlbuUritj mako some of the best
fishing grounds in Oregon. The water
shed is large and the great number of
small streams .that enter the main
river make it an ideal spawning
grounds for the salmon. The people
who come from California and other
arid districts enjoy the shady nooks
and pure water along the banks of the

and seem to have the good will of the

road from Euchre mountain to, the

Is said the stage driver never swears.
This piece of road would try the pa
tience of a Job. But the driver
wears a pleasant smile and this makes
it nice for the horses and passengers.
Next year no doubt this part of the
road will be gravelled and made good
as the rest of the road.

Nation Wide Campaign Launched far

nity Llfo Emphasized.
November 7-12 has been set as "Sub

with the thousands of country news
papers the United States over there
are not far from 111,000 of them, week
lies and small dallies is to partici
pate. The purpose of the campaign is not
only to Induce residents of the small
communities and the home town folks
who are far from their native heath
to subscribe for the home puper, but
also to emphasize the Important place
the home newspaper plays In the life
of Its community.
This campaign has the hearty sup
port and co-operation not only of tht
newspapers but thousands of minis
ters and school principals, and muny
state agricultural colleges and farm
and home bureau organizations.
Some persons, it Is pointed out, havo
been Inclined to bollttle the place and
function of the country newspaper.
They have not realized that In reality
the home paper Is a community insti
tution and that It enables the other
Institutions, such as the church and
the school and all the rest to function
better and more effectively. That it Is
a necessity If the town Is to advance.
During the time between' now and
"Home Town Paper Week," Novem
ber 7-12, this newHpaner In Its col
umns will have much to say about the
Home Town Paper not this newspa
per in particular, but the home town
paper the nation over, the home town
newspaper as a real and distinctive
factor In American life.

'TO PRESENT AGATES
The National Grange, with repre
sentatives from every State in the
Union, will meet at Portland 'he third
week in November. The Granges of
Lincoln County conceived the Idea
that since agates were so abundant In
Lincoln County and as the agate is
the emblem stone of the Orange, lt
would be a nice little token of appre
ciation, as well as a good little ad
vertising stunt for Lincoln Couuty, to
present each of the official delegates
with an agate.
Since ihe advertising vdlue of this
stunt Is of Interest to the, entire
County, the Grange is asking the co
operation of every person in the
County, and particularly of the public
organizations. The P'nn is to get Just
as good agates as can be had, surface
one side, inclose in a neat little box
in tho lid of which will be placed an
advertising leaflet giving a brief
writ-up of the agate and Lincoln Co.
ters will visit the subordinate Granges
and he will tell them there about the
National Grange meeting. Again the
agase will go the rounds. Many more
things might be said regarding what
this little stunt will mean to Lincoln
County but you can think of these as
well as we. What the committee In
charge of this event wants is agates.
If you have an agate which you would
like to donate tor this purpose to help
this cause along, leave It or eend lt to
S. T. Loudon, Eddyvllle, J. E. Cooter.

Thomas, Newport, who is preparing;
Will lt payT Let us think of it for
The delegates at the National
Grange consist, of the State Masters
and their wives from each State in the
Union and the Past National Officers.
Each one of these delegates, on re
ceiving his agate, will at once be
come Interested and want to see the
other fellow's agate. Think how they
will marvel at the beauty of the spec
ial display put on by Mr. Thomas.
The papers will mention the agates
and Lincoln County in their write-ups
of the National Grange meeting. But
what will happen when the delegates
return homer Each State Master
will at the first State Grange meeting
report to his home people the "do
ings'' at the National Grange. And
we'll bet you that in not one Instance
will they neglect mentioning the ag
ates and Lincoln County. He will
show them his agate and they will
