Tho last issue of the La Grande Gazette
contained nn nrtlclo written by Henry
Wildev which was an unprovoked attack
upon Henry Anson and W. II. McDonald,,
president and cashier of tho La Grande
First National 15auk. Mr McDonald wrote
a reply vindicating himself, and the bank,
from the charges made, and sent it to the
Gazette but that paper refined, to publish
it on the grounds that the paper was In thu
hands of a committee and they could not
allow every body to talk through its col
umns. This is a new species of journalism
but it is characteristic of the worthies who
conduct it and manage nff.drs In La Grande..

.Miss his dear, familiar fneji.
Iu our sad nnd lonely school room,
None can ever till Ids place.
And our hearts nro almost breaking,
Crushed beneath this heavy oad,
Vor tho path of life without him
Seems a dark and dreary road.
How hechcered with mirth and sunshine
Our loving hearts and home,
Still wo listen for his tootsteps
Keeling yet that he must come,
Hut 'tis only for a moment,
That we listen for his tread,
Now thu sud truth flashes o'or us,
Ho cannot come, l-.ddle's dead.
Uoloved by all who know him,
Ho passed his life so brief.
Then closed his eyes to earthly scenes
Unconscious of our grief.
Hard it is to bo nubmlHsIvo,
As wo pass beneath the rod,
Our poor hearts all filled with sorrow
Can bo soothed by none but Uod.
