the ones who need tho pl'oteilion of
life Insurance and when one' of that
class dies without it, they leave their
dependents in straitened, or perhaps
dostlt.t.tn (drctimsiances; certainly It.
would mnku no dlffi fence to thorn at.
thai, time where their insurance was
placed, as Ions is the Institution was
solvent und honorable in its dealings;!
but have we not learned, are we not
daily learning that 'no man liveth to
hlms:lt'?' And are not the fraternal
Ists of our land continually teaching
the responsibilities of brotherhood?
"The methods so generally In
vogue In these institutions are surely
among tho commendable things of to
day; it Is unquestionably a comfort
ing thing for a toiler, one whose fam
ily depends upon his weekly wage for
life's necessities, to know that in his
hour of distress and want his loved
ones will be cared for and ministered
to by those who, though not connect
ed by the ties of kinship, call him
neighbor or brother, and that the
monthly payments on the Insurance
policy that may at any moment be
the only thing that stands between
his family nd dire poverty will be
met by thfi lodge he belongs to.
"One of the wide spread evils of
the insurance system is lapsation,
and while it is prevalent in fraternal
societies, as well as In corporations,
the cause or excuse for it is mitigat
ed, being almost totally confined to
carelessness or indifference; experi
ence is surely a great teacher and
the honesty of purpose in fraternal
.life' Insurance societies is being con
tinually borne out by the great les
sons they are daily learning in the
worldwide, school conducted by this
Universal Master; these societies
are presided over by some of the mas
ter minds of the age, and with few
exceptions adequate rates and econo
my of management is their slogan.
L. Hedges, Mrs. Sarah Thorp of In
dependence to Mr. John Shelton of
Monmouth. The ceremony was per
formed at high noon by the Rev. Mr.
Wood of Monmouth.
The wedding was of more than us
ual interest on account of the prom
inence of the contracting parties, to
gether with the fact that both have
reached the age of three Bcore and
ten. They are old and respected pi
oneers of Oregon, both having
crossed the plains in the early fifties.
The bo-autlful parlors of the Hedges
homo were artistically decorated with
autumn leaves and Oregon grape for
the occasion. The bride was attired
becomingly in pure white and the
groom wore a suit of black broad
cloth. Followine the ceremony a
dainty lunch was served.
Their honeymoon is to be spent
with the son of the groom who is a
prominent merchant of Goldendale,
Both the bride and groom are re
lated to many prominent people of
the Willamette valley, Mrs. Shelton
being a sister of D. L. Hedges of
this city. They will make their home
in Monmouth on their return from

Highland Farmer Dies
A. J. Moore, a farmer of Highland,
died at his home Monday night after
a protracted illness of several months
He leaves a wife and step-son. The
funeral took place yesterday.
Efforts were made by this office to
get a more complete account of this
death but even the phone proved of
no assistance. It is hoped that a
more extended account may be given
in next week's paper.

Hop growers are having their inn
ings, with the prevailing quotation
for the Oregon crop at twenty-five
cents per pound. The average price
last year was seven cents, in 1907,
seven cents and in 1906 twelve cents
The last high priced year was 1904,
when the Oregon hop went to forty
five cents and away back in 1882
there were sales as high as $1.25 a
pound. In some respects, the mar
ket this year resembles that of 1S82.
Light crops all over the world are
responsible for the prevailing high
prices. The Oregon crop is the light
est since 1896. The estimate of .70,-
000 bales for the year's yield in this
state is considered about right, with
Washington's crop 15,000 bales,, com
pared with 17,000 bales last year, and
California has about 60,000 bales this
year compartd to 68,000 bales last
It is expected this year will mark
the first of a series of high-priced
crops. This year, the next and pos
sibly one or two more, will mean
large profits to growers. After that,
because of high prices having stimu
lated production, more hops will be
grown than are needed and the price
will drop again.
