Ebenezer Burton McElroy, A.
M., Ph. D., wasa native of Penn
sylvania, where he was born
September 17, 1842, being the
youngest of a family of 12 child
ren. His early life was spent on
a farm. After completing his
education, which he acquired in
his native state, he began teach
ing, at which he was engaged in
1 85 1, when the war broke out
His patriotic spirit took posses
sion of him, and he enlisted as a
private in Company B, First
West Virginia Volunteers. He
served in that reginent until 1863,
when he was mustered out and
re-enlisted in the One Hundredth
Pennsylvania Volunteer Infantry,
and served until July, 1865, when
he was again mustered out.
After the war he spent two
years more pursuing his studies
in college, and again took up the
work of teaching.
Professor McElroy was mar
ried in 1869, to Miss Agnes Me
Fadden, sister of W. S. McFad- j
den, of this city. Together they
came to Oregon in 1874, and
settled in Corvallis, where he
taught one year in the old lower
district school. The following:
year he was given a chair in the j
State Agricultural College, which
he rilled until he was elected
state superintendent of public in
struction in 1880, in which office
he served until 1892.
He was then appointed to a
chair in the University of Ore
gon, which he filled until a year
ago, when, he resigned. Since
that time he has devoted his at
tention to his largefarm and or
chard near Monroe.
The body was " brought to Cor

of Masons from Salem, Eugene
and Albany, Mr. McElroy having

White going on one of the lit
tle valleys the gentleman accom
panying me, in passing a farm,
said that five years ago the farm
was purchased for $1,300, the
purchaser paying $200 down and
giving- his note for the balance.
The purchaser got some cows, a
few pens of Black Leghorn
ohiekens and went to - work.
Every Satnrday he. goes to To

batter and eggs and his egg
basket is full of nice, fresh, clean

paid off and the proprietor Is the

which he can oall his own.
These valleys are very rich
and there are many of them in
Lincoln county. One party said
he sowed an acre of elover in the
spring and cut two tons of hay
that fall. He claims that by ac- I
tual test the sugar beets raised
in that county are richer in sugar
than these raised in Eastern Ore
gon. He claims that the tide
land when dyked is rich enough
to raise almost anything. This
county is rapidly developing and
is destined to bo one of the rich

this be trne when the dairy and
the timber industries are fully
developed. There are many or

small, .but the. trees look healthy

disease than in some other parts
of the state. .
A Fir Tree.
That there were vast forests
centuries age, that were in Vari
ous manners destroyed is not for
a moment doubted by people
who are versed on questions of
this nature. Everything indi
cates long before the present
forests sprang from earth there
were trees of large growth in
Oregon, which, throttga some
violent and snddea change, or by
the slow process of time have
been buried many feet under
ground. The Albany Herald re
lates the following which proves
that such is the case:
The sinking of a shaft to te
depth of about thirty feet for a

S. E. Young & Son has brought
to the surface some remarkable
specimens of the strange things
down in the earth. At the depth
of 26 feet a well preserved log
was encountered. It seemed to
have been from a fir tree and re
sembled peat more tlan wood.
On boring through the log a sub
stanee was found that looked
ver? much, like mineral paint.
Yesterday a quantity of this sub
stance whiah was a beautiful
blue color, was taken out. Then
a strata of black sand was reach
ed which gave evidence of being
gold bearing. To cap the cli
max, at the lowest depth reach
ed, the water which came out
had a decidedly oily appearance,
indicating that a genuine gusher
might be tapped by boring deep
enough. Aa energetic miner
with any sort of an imagination
could have been kept busy dar

ing the possible values of the
produet of the shaft.
