"No; what do I want of lamb stew

particularly happy. It is true that the

twelve of hich are now liviug.
We join their many friends in hoping
'hat they will meet in many yearly re
unions. FAMILY BISTORT,
home history of this family will doubt
less prove interesting to our readers, as
hey were pioneer settlers iu Oregon In
i he year 1840, William 8peiry and fain
dy, oousistiug of wife and four obildreu,
moved from the State of Ohio to Iowa
where they resided eleven years, but they
v earned for soeues farther west, and in
the )ear 1851 started for Oregon, crossing
i he plains by ox team. In six mouths
ibey had reached the end of their jour
ney, settling in Linn county, near tin
present town of Brownsville. Their jour-
ney, like all that crossed the "Great
Ainerionn Desert" at that period, was
not unattended by hardships.
The father purchased a claim near
Brownsville and went to farming. Being
i miuister of the Baptist church, his du
ties at this time were numerous, forthtre
were few preachers in the Willamette
valley, and his pastoral work had to be
curried on in connection with the farm-
ug, making it no light task on him.
However, the older children were by this
time grown, and took a large portion of
(he burden from the father's shoulders.
Wm, Sperry died in 1857 Rt the age of
Mr" Sperry in 1859 was married to
Williani Cochran, a wealthy and most
expected resident ot Brownsville. She
lived till 1881, and had the satisfaolioi
f seeing her shildreu married and set
tied iu life, ami more, that they were re
-tpeoted ud esteemed by all.
Iu regard to organizing against tbe
squirrels, I will say, I think that is tbe
ouly way we will ever exterminate them.
They are getting mure numerous every
year. My plan is this: Call a meeting
ot the citizens of each preeiuot, elect del.
egales to a convention to be culled at
Heppner, there to select a committee on
tiuuuoe aud a busiuess cuminiitee, lo see
to aud prepare the poison, three or four
kinds. Solicit help from the couuty, iu
ihe shape ot premiums. To the one get
ting the largest number of scalps, $73;
seound, $50; third, $25 That will do
more good than tbe $l,7u0 given by tbe
oounty as bounty last year.
We will have to do something to ex
terminate them, or we wili Lave to va
cate. Liuzeus, one aud all, let us hear
from J on on this qnestion, as i-u ought
all to be interested.
