iast naay morning- at i
o'clock: after a lone life of un
usual activity which led to social
and political' prominence, Dr.
James k. myiey passea peace
fully away at his home near
Newport. Some months ago the
aged physician suffered a stroke
of paralysis, and the vital spark
has grown constantly dimmer,
and finally went out. -
Jaines R. Bayley was born in
Clark county, Ohio, October 6th,
1820. Having completed his
academic education at Spring
field, lie began the study of
medicine in 1841, and was grad
uated from the Ohio medical col
lege three years later. He prac
ticed his profession at Spring
field until 1848, when he moved
to Cincinnati, where he resided
for seven years. In 1852, he
married Miss Lizzie Harpole, of
Green county, Ohio. This de?
voted helpmate died May 5,
1899. With his family, Dr.
Bayley came to Oregon in 1855,
and located in Polk county. He
served in the territorial council
of Oregon from i8;6 to i8;7.
when he represented Yamhill
and Clatsop counties. In the
latter year he moved to Corvallis,
where he opened a drug store
and began the practice of his
His superior ability aud schol
arly attainments made him a
power in the community and he
was elected to represent Ben
ton county in thestate senate for
the term of : 1866-68. He was
county judge of Benton for two
terms, and served as supervisor
of internal revenue from 1869 to
Dr. Bayley was . one of the
most prominent Masons in the
state, having taken the Scottish
Rites, or thirty-second, degree.
For nine years he served 33 high
priest of the Oregon Grand
Chapter of Royal Arch Masons,
and one term as grand master ot
the grand lodge ol OregoH.
About fifteen years ago, with
his family. Dr. Bayley mdved
from Corvallis to Newport. The
remains were brought from that
city on Saturday morning's C. &
E. They were taeea in charge
by the Masonic fraternity and es
corted to the temple of that or
der where they laid in state un
til Sunday morning at 10:30
Peculiarly impressive among
the different ceremonies were
those which were held at the Ma
sonic Temple, Saturday at mid
night by the Knights of the
Temple, conducted by the mem
bers of Scottish Right degrees

. As the : clock . chimed 12 the
procession marched in from the
outer apartment, headed by the
eminent commander, followed by
other members of the order, each
bearing a lighted .candle, march
ing; twice arpnnd the casket at
the altar where, lay the body of
the deceased brother in state.
The procession formed a circle
around the casket,, and were
caused to halt by the sound of
gong, struck by the commander.
Reveille was , sounded by the
pianist, which In the gloom of
tha room, there being no lights
but burning tapers . at foot and
head of the casket, made the
scene wierd and impressive. The
beautiful, service . was then pro
nounced, by the commander,
with responses from the Knights,
when hands were laid npon the
dead, the green wreath removed
from his brow, " as a token that
he - parted., -with" all that' was
earthly ; ' the bands whish bound
his- hands were out and removed
a;v typical of releasing the dead
from all ties which bound him
to earth, when at ttle sound of
the gong at the hands of the com
mander all knights knelt around
the casket in silent, prayer;
Arismgi- the fc commander took
from the alter, a -goblet of water,
passing it around the circle of
knights who each : in turn,
sprinkled water: upon the face of
the dead, with, the words "Oar
brother has gone from earth, but
is now with his Lord,", at the
same i- time extinguishing his
Music was then ' rendered at
the piano representing 'tapsV of
the bugle, and the procession
marched out of the temple car
rying their candles extinguished.
The ceremony lasted v about 30
minutes, and was participated in
by Eminent Commander F. A,
Moore, judge supreme court;
Judge Geo. H, . Burnett, Dr.
Gillis, George G. Bingham,

train from Albany brought about
20 or 30 members of the Order,
who assisted in these ceremonies.
The procession moved to Crystal
Lake cemetery, the Knights'
Templar acting: as an escort, and
the last honors were shown the
dead. ; "

Open Session of Grange.
Counter attractions and magnificent
weather for farm operations worked
against the attendance at the meeting of
Corvallis Grange last Saturday ; never
theless, a fair-sized audience of farmers,
their wives, and members of the grange
had assembled at the appointed hour.
Prof. A. L. Knisely, by a large number
of striking experiments, illustrated and
explained the properties ef the two gases,
hydrogen land oxygen, which when
chemically combined, change to a liquid
state and form pure water. A feature ot
the ex- ..clients was the harmless bat
noisC explosion ef a mechanical mixtare
of the two gases when ignited. This
Prof. Knisely explained, was due to the
chemical union of the gapes whereby
they were changed from a gaseous to a
liqaid form, thus producing water and
occupying , only a small fraction of the
space occupied ia the gaseous form.
Oxidation, or commonly speaking, the
rusting of metals, was illustrated by
placing a watch spring in a jar of pure
oxygen, the spring being changed to iron
oxide or iron rust in a few seconds of
Prof. Geo. Coote discussed Small Fruit
Culture in his usual able manner, calling
attention to the mistake often made of
cultivating small fruits deeply in the
spring. Such fruits should receiye deep
cultivation in the fall, and in the spring
the cnltivation shallow, not to exceed a
depth of 'three inches.'' The idea is not
to disturb the feeding roots of tte plant
which are found comparatively near, the
surface. Ia digging about the roots of
any of the bush fruits a spade should
not be used. Instead use a digging fork,
which will not sever the roots to an in
jurious extent. Prnning is essential
with all ot oup small fruits to ensure any
considerable measure of success. - The
idea in pruning is to direct nourishment
to the development of fruit and not to
the growth of wood to such an extent as
found in the enpruned bush. Removal
of the runner constitutes -the pruning of
the strawberry and is quite as essential
as the pruning of other fruits. Professor
Coote also discussed the growing of the
tomato and celery, in reply to questions
along that line. " ;
Miss Telfer, ot Alpha Hail, favored the
audience with some very much appreci
ated instrumental music.
