A Word of Explanation.
I see in hist week's issue of tho Kastorn
Oregon Republican a littlo comment on
the construction of tho Wallowa bridge, in
which comment they seem to want to lay
particular blame on me for the failure of
the builders to place corbies on the abut
ments under the bridge. Now if there is
any fault anywhere aside from the buildors
It Is in the imperfection of the specifications
in the contract. I contended with tho fore
man of tho bridge carpenters that thero
should bo good corbies placo.l on these
abutments, and ho wrote to Hoffman A:
Bates ami their instructions to him was to
do the work aocordlug to the contract and
no more. I was sunt there to superintend
tho work and see that the contract was
complied with, and I could not enforce
that which was not in the contract. Thero
were men there, both from this county and
Wallowa, during the construction of tho
nhntiiiPiits. und thev all agiood with mo
that it wjs as good work as they ever saw,
except it was of cut stone which is a differ
ent class of masourv entirely. 1 don't look
at it as being carelessness on my part nor
any fault of mine whatever J. J. Oiau:.
Tho transition from long, l;ngering and
painful ilekness to robust health marks an
opouh in the life of the Individual. Kueh a
rtmiarkable event is treasured in the memo
ry and tnr ;ig -ncy whereby the good health
has been attained is gratefully blessed.

Jennctta Curr was born in Adams coun
ty, Ohio, February it, 1U, and was mar
ried to John Mc 'onus Feb. 181, lSii, near
the place of her birth. She was the mother
of eight children, four bovs and four girls.
Her two oldest children, Harriet and
Evans, were born in Ohio; Esther, Mary,
Samilel nnriJJohn weio born i:i Indiana,
and Alice and William in Iowa. Sho had

a id in every respect one of tho -pioneer
mothers whose lives have bueomo a part of
the essential history of our country. How
vividly my thoughts carry me back to the
little old log cabin on the bleak prairies of
Indiana, when our father delayed In his
long journey to the timber for the good
hickory wood, or in marketing tho corn,
caused her to bar tho door as the dismal
howl of tho wolves drow nearer and near
er. How Harriet and 1 watched hor face
to instinctively rend hor thoughts, and
how noble and brave she now appears to
me as I recall the calm heroism that always
seemed to oomo to her support in the lone
some) vigils that dire necessity imposed
upon her. After pioneer life in Illinois,
Indiana and Iowa, Industry and economy
brought their reward In a comfortable home
and surroundings. And then it was that
the noble haracte: of mother to us, "Aunt
Jenette" to others, was most conspicuous.
In oarly life she joined the Christian de
nomination of religionists as did her de
voted companion. But as sho reasoned and
as age came creeping upon her the theories
ot endless torment, and vicarious atone
ment, regeneration and resurrection of the
mortal body, were discardedius butj the
nightmare of gross superstition and scarce
ly pardonable cupidity, and she settled
down into u calm, conlident hope that
