loves, war clubs, trapeze bars, etc., and
the amount of fun we have is wonder
ful. I do not think the preacher meant
more than half what he said last Sun

Rock, Umatilla county, Oregon, of con

Father Beuson was born April 30th,
1823; was married iu 1S49 to Miss Emi
ly White; emigrated to this State in
1SC4, and settled on the Umatilia Mead
ows, where ho remained several years,
during which time his beloved compan
ion departed this life December 1st,
1S71. Having lived a devoted Chris
tian, she died ia the triumphs ef a liv
ing faith in Christ her Redeemer.
Four children nnrvive the departed pa

Brother Bsnson was one of the valua
ble members of the Pioneer Baptist
Church of Pilot Rock, Oregon. He
served the church as clerk for several
years. He was a great friend to the
Snnday School work, and by vote of
the Suuday School workers in his own
neighborhood he had served in ths ca
pacity of superintendent of the Sunday
School, which office he filled to the per
feet satisfactio'i of all concerned up to
the time of his death. Durinr his briet
illness he would frequently make inqui
ry about the Sunday School, expressing
great anxiety for its future prosperity.
He was also elected by the voters of
this county to the responsible office of
County Commissioner for two terms,
which office he filled with great credit
to himself and the people. He was not
in any sense of the word an office-seeker.
The office sought him. He was

utes past three in the morning he was
resting apparently free from pain. Five
minutes later the son heard as he
thought his father speak his name, but,
turning to him, he found him uncon
scious. He never spoke again. Fifteen
minutes later his spirit took its Might to
the "home of the soul" which had heen
prepared by the Saviour in whom he
trusted while living. He had been
devoted and exemplary Cbrietian for a
quarter ef a century, ever ready to as'
sist to his utmost ability in everything
that tended to promote and strengthen
the causa which he espoused. ' Iu his af
tliction he was ever patient, gentle aud
kind to those who adiniuistered unto
him, bearing with meekness and sub
mission all for Christ. His loss in the
community aiy church is deeply felt,
He was a faithful friend, a loving fath
er. His children honored him; death
glorified him. Beloved father, friend,
