all. Mr. Ira Crofutt of Adam traded

The next day Mr. Crofutt sold one of
the quarters to Mr. O'lfricn for $1400.
A few days after, Mr. II. McArthur
sold to Mr. Crofutt one quarter section
of deeded laud and a quarter of railroad
land in the Cold Spring country for
$1500. There were about 200 acres
auwn to wheat on the land bought from
Mr. Itidcnour and about 80 acres sown

Arthur. These figures show that val

We clip tho following from the
Inst issue of the East Oregon inn: "Last
evening the Episcopal Church was well
filled to witness the marriage ef Hubert
J. Slater, oldest son of Senator James
II. Slater, and Miss Maggie Furnish.
At 7 the bridal party entered the church
laoving up the aisle in the following
order: Mr. Charles Wilkins and M'ihs
Jessie Starkweather first, then the brido
en the arm of her brother, Mr. William
Famish, then the groom and the bride's
methor. Then the beautiful and im-
presuve marriage ceremuuy was read.
After the ceremouies at the church all
wore invited to a reception at the bouse
of the bride's mother, where a bounte
ous feast waa spread. The brido was
the recipient of many handsome and
useful presents. The bridal party left
. on thie morning's train for a visit te the
borne of the groom's parents in La
Grande. They will return shortly and
will make 1'endleton their home." Tho

happiness through mauy coming ycara.
One night last week a number of
beys met iu Geo. Hayes' old cellar near
Washington street to pl;iy cards. Jcnks
Montgomery found them there and
male them all prisoners by locking the
door ea the outside. The boys were
properly frightened and proceeded to
out their way out. Montgomery was
ia the meantime searching fot the city
marshal, but failing to find him made
terms With his prisoners and released
them: As frequently before stated by
the LEADER it ia just barely possible
that the parents of these youthful cul
prit are ignorant of their misconduct,
but it does not seem probable. It is
peculiar that boys could be absent from
any well regulated family until lato in
the night without arousing some appre
hension as to the correctness of their
behavior. We are informed that the
city marshal ia making laudable efforts
to enforce the ordinance that requires
- boys to be off the streets after eight
o'clock at night. We hope he will be
successful. It ia a aad commentary

For some years pseudo-scientists
and Bhallow skeptics have sedulously
promulgated the idea that there Is an
unceasing warfare between science and
religion. The ignorance and fanaticism
of many religious teachers have done bo
little injury to tho cause they have been
attempting to uphold through their ina
bility to take rational views of the ideas
advanced by really scientific men. If
materialism and evolution have
shaken the confidence ot ' any
one in the eraad fundamental
truths of Christianity, narrow-minded,
bigoted believers havo been as much
to blame as the advocates ef those
theories. Every earnest christian and
honest skeptic should be able to meet
those arguments which have been ad
vanced to show that mail body and
mind has been evolved and not created,
All these are ablr answered iu a book
called "A Study of Origins, or tiicProb-
ems of Knowledge, of Being, and of
Duty," published by James Pott & Co.,

The following tribute to Weston
is taken from the February number of
The Normal Monthly: A matter 6f
prime importance, and one which is too
frequently overlooked in selecting a
school is the moral character of the towu
in which the school is located. Stud
ents become, for the time being, prac
tically a part of the town. They im
bibe its spirit, are more or less subject
to its iuiluenccs whether evil or good.
In point ot morality and intelligence
there probably is no place in Oregon
superior to Weston. For that reason,
no better place in the State could have
been selected for the location of a school.
Parents can feel perfectly safe in send-
their children to Weston. They will
find the people, generally, hospitable,
intellectual and moral. The govern-
mcnt of the Normal School allows no
studeut to remain whose habits have a
pernicious influence upon his associates.
While perfect freedom is allowed to all
ho conduct themselves uprightly, it
is determined mat tie morals or me
students shall be most carefully guarded
by excluding everything that would tend
to lead them astray.
It has too often been the custom to
elect as school director some mau, one of
whose chief qualifications was the num
ber of children he had to send to school,
fhero wouli be more sense in reversing
this, by electing someone who had no
children te educate in the district. Af
fection too often blinds the reason. The
psirents of bad children, and there are
such, cannot be convinced that their
dear ones aro as unruly and mischievous
read in a respectable family and one
who would encourage, even by corres
ponding with it, is unworthy to be
looked upon as a fellow being. - r'

To the Editor ot the Lksder:
Frank Pixley says, "We knew the
Biblical account of evil spirits and the
fable of the swine, and do not pretend
that tho devil may not get into a hog or
a quack doctar." And Frank is gener
ally correct; in this case he is absolutely
so, for did I not stir up His Satanic
Majesty in the last-mentioned animal
last week? I had not thought to write
this week, and do so with reluctance
new, for fear I may say something that
had better be left unsaid, for it is my
natural disposition to avoid a quarrel,
not eo much from cowardice as from
reluctance to be at emnity with aay
one. This assertion of mine I think
most people who knew me will bear
me out in. But the unprovoked attack
of "Dynamite" in the E. O. of the 13th
inst. upon M. S. Lee ought not to pass
without notice, and in justice to myself
allow me to make the following remarks:
He must certainly be "dynamite" or
some other extremely explosive matter,
otherwise he would not have gone off so
easily,, for if I touched the fellow the
concussion was very light. I but vague

the suow storm he lost quite a number
of tbem. All that was valuable was
the pelts. These he had preserved and
was bringing a load of them to Pendle
ton the other day when he met with an
accident. A few miles this side of
Echo, he undertook to cross the Uma
tilla river with his team and load of
pelta when almost at the opposite bank
he got into deep, rapid water, which
carried the horses and load down the
stream several hundred yards. The
horses got entangled in a fallen tree and
were drowned. The wagon upset and
Mr. Cox dumped in the river, from
which he barely escaped with his life.
The pelts werecsrried oil by the treach
