Lexington and Her Business Men-Clarks
Canyon, Spring Valley, Social Ridge
and Garden Plain.
CJTBOUT one hundred and eighty
hi eight miles east of Portland and
forty mileB south of tbe Columbia
river, on the Union Paoifio railway, is to
be found Lexington, tbe subject of our
sketch. It was founded seven years ago
aboutthetime Morrow county was formed
Its locution as a business oenter, a place
of residence and many other special ad
vantages, makes it one of the most fa
vored spots in Eastern Oregon. It has
grown rapidly and Bteadily and is today
the supply depot, the distributing
point, the commercial oenter and future
metropolis of one of the best farming
countries in the world. The oareful
reader will, by examination, oonvinoe
The town is supplied with a good
school and two oburohes. Congrega
tional and Methodist.
By a small outlay Lexington can pipe
in au abundance of fresh, pure spring
water, whioh can, and will be used to
sprinkle lawns and streets and beautify
the homes. The present supply of wa
ter is sufficient for all ordinary purposes.
As the town grows and tbe country ad
vances, this plaoe will become a oity of
homes where people, who dwell remote
from educational advantages, may come
and educate their ohildren. Why se
leot this place? First, beosuse of the
good character of its citizens. The
brightest feature about this embryonic
city is the general good character of its
citizens. Islington nas no saloon, or
dramshop. Inhere is no prohibitive or
dinance, but a saloon can't live here; the
people have no use for a saloon keeper,
People in selecting a Bohool for their
ohildren aim to guard against the evils
of oontaot with a drinking element.
Measures are being taken for the estab
lishment of a first class eduoational in
stitution at this place and we hope the
move will reoeive the support of Lex
ington that it so riohly deserves.
The churohes are in good prosperous
condition. The school is first class and
many people living in the country are
taking advantage of it. From a tmsi
ness stand point, Lexiugton is Bolid as a
rock and well able to oompete with the
surrounding points, in the large and
growing trade of the farming community
of Eastern Oregon. Her position is
such that she can pay more for farm
produce and all supplies than any other
town in this part of Oregon.
Lexington has a number of thrifty
merchants and shop keepers, and it is a
pleasure to speak of them. The first in

The genial, olever postmaster and gro
cer. Mr. McAlister bas been postmaster
for a number of years and deservedly
enjoys the good will of the people. In
connection with his duties he waits on
the publio, and supplies their wants in
the grocery line. He buys for cash, has
no rent or clerk hire, and oan therefore
sell goods very low. His trade is large
and constantly increasing. It would be
difficult for a merchant in a new country
to confine himself to the narrow limits
and keep within prescribed linos. The
oonetant demand for farm machinery has
forced Mr. McAlister to add to his busi
ness a large line of agricultural imple
ments, ot which his sale has been almost
marvelous. His advertisement will be

wishing goods will save money by in

B. P. SINE,
Attorney at law and notary publio, is
one of the firm believers in the theory that
this is a good oouutry. Mr. Hiue is n
careful reader and a deep thinker and
while he is not directly interested in farm

an active interest iu the Alliance, that is
now rising in its might to resist the op

borne for ages.
"Under the spremlinir cheHtiiat tree,
Tilt' village smithy hUuhIh,
The smith a mighty man fH lie,
With large and sinewy litiails."
Ain't that fine, and like wine age im
proves it. I always wanted to be a
blaoksmith; I've got too much fire in me
to follow the more quiet walks of life.
My parents were poor but freckled, aud
at an early day they planned that I
should be a preacher. I ran away aud
was in time apprenticed to a butcher,
and dear reader if you AdJ I've butch
ered the subject charge it to my early
training, for I bear no malioe aud hire all
my fighting done. I started out to talk
about the village blacksmith, but tbe
opportunity admitted of my speaking of
m self, and as priuters are used to doing
gratuitous work so thoy won't mind
helping me a little.
Looated here three years ago and does a
general blacksmith business. He builds

DAVIS i BUIiaoYNE,
Of the Lexiugton Holler Milling Co.,
are pleasant gentlemen and took great
pains to show us through their business
Their mill is operated by a thirty horse

the roller process and manufacture
fine grade of family flour; they have a
large custom trade.
While a large hind owner and interested
in grain raising, is turning his attention
to horses. The cayuse must go, aud a
practical evidence is in the fact that re
cently a number of fine horses have been
imported, among them is Mr. Reanev's
imported, thoroughbred Percheron horse,
Va Si-Tu-Peux. Full and oomplete des
oription and pedigree will be found in

1891 was appointed U. S. land commis

is thoroughly prepared to oonduot all
business in connection with public lands,
such as contests, filings, final proofs and
all matters pertaining to this laud;
keeps maps, plats and platbooks cor
rected up 1 1 date, statute and seven
volumes of land decisions; is thoroughly
conversant with the oountry and parties

consulting him. Mr, Snow is a notary

clever, oourteouB gentleman, and during
tbe brief sojourn we made io Lexington
be favored us repeatedly, but he oan't
help it, he is built that way.
Conduct a livery, feed and sale stable,
where they keep good turnouts and are
prepared to take commercial men and
travelers to any and all points. Charley
and Tom, as they are familiarly oalled,
are two of the most popular men in Lex
ington. They are ever ready to do their
share in any move that is for the benefit
ot the oommunity. Traveling men, who
visit the interior, have found their rates
so much in keeping with the rigs that they
have all they oan do in that line and are
rapidly extending their facilities. Lex
ington's delightful location and wonder
ful climate renders it an admirable res
idence town, and many land owners and
farmers live in town and at the same time
pay attention to their business in tbe
oountry. These gentlemen are some
times dubbod "city farmers," but there
is, we are glad to note, very little of this
disposition on the part of others to be
little a man because he is auxious to live
in town, where he oan educate bis ohil

DAVID A. PORTER,
Though for years engaged in mercantile
pursuits, oan't keep from farming. His
orop report for last season shows a light
yield, but it was owing to alittle mistake,
and any one that knows anything knows
mistakes will happen. Dave took a sack
of shoe pegs, through error, and
sowed them for oats, and he drilled in
about four pounds of giant powder,
whioh had by Some green clerk been
dumped into tbe onion seed chest.
Have went short on oats and onions
both, but it won't happen again.
REV,, B. R. BEAOH
Looated seven years agu and has been
farming some with satisfactory results.
The Congregational society of this place
was organized through his efforts. He
has built a ohurch here that is a credit
to the place. His views are broad as
sunlight, and his work will live through
all time. Mr. Beach says Congregation
alism is the iutelligeut interpretation of
Christ's teaching that superstition must
go aud thut there is no conflict between
soienoe and true religion. "A man he is
to all the country dear," and his life is
such that the world will be better for bis
having lived in it.
