Fifty! Yert of Wedded
Life Celebrated By
r.fcup:a Couple
Half Century of Unalloyed Blisa I
Record of W. H. W.IIUm. and
Estimable Wife
Fifty yean ii a Img time fur
couple to live together. Fifty years
of ccmpanlonable happiness 1
something not enjoyed by many, but
W. H. Williams and wifn have had
that experience. To fittingly com
memorate the time of their marri
age. Mr. and Mr. WillUuns enter

are living- in Mvj)in, they being 0.
J. Williams, Mrs. Oliver Resh and
Mr. Bates Shattuck, with their
famiUes at a dinner at the Wllliami
home on Tuesday. Betides the
members of the immediate family
Mra. Albert St. Dennia and son. Al
bert, Jr., and Mra. J. W. McClure
had teata at the table.
Fifty year ago, on the third day
of July 1878, Bill and hit bride
jtood before John Carpenter, a jus
tice of the peace at Laurel, Wash
ington county, and pledged eternal
fealty to each other. Rome time h
ftre that date Mr. William, then
a young man, met, and wooed Mine
Eliza Jane Clemmena for his wife.
The young couple aet out to make
their way in the world, each filled
with optimism and many days of
hard .work. They worked together
in the field and in the home. They
raised a family of four children as
well as a grand on, whose mother
had passed' on. As a mail carrier,
farm hand, stage driver and ranch
er, Bill Williams' first call was that
of. his home and family. His wife
proved' a Ureles, helpmate, and as
time pa aed the couple seemed to
be drawn closed to each other and
to have' but one though the hap
piness and comfort .of their home.
Through trials and tribulations,
sunshine and showers, light and
darkness they clove to each other,
looking forward to the time when
they might retire from acUve work
and rest tfheir remaining days In
their home, content with each other
and at peace with the world.
Fifty year. What vicissitudes
of lhe has been the lot of the peo
ple spoken of here. What years of
hard' labor has been theirs; what
trials and tribulations ' have they
overcome ind what satisfaction is
theirs ' that their children are now
among the most respected people of
thls'rtate.' How they have fought
to master conditions and how their
love for each other overcame all ob
stacles and grtW,, stronger as time
elapsed. Fifty yars! How much
can be accomplished in that time.
Two score yesrs and ten have seen
this couple struggling to attain a
goahcought by all. It is a sublime
thought .that during their long
married life Mr. and Mrs. Williams
have buoyed up by the thought that
their happiness on this earth will
la. younted in the next life and thut
when the time comes to take fare
well of thig earth they may wen ay
their Uvea have not been in vain.

Hedin Could Win Office If
Left '"to the Voters' Choice
The campaign for state senator J
from the 16th district to fill R. R.
Butler's vacancy caused by his nomi
nation for congress to fill the place
vacated by Nick Blnnott, is not get
ting down to cases.
It is conceded by thinking mea
over Hood River and Warco coun
ties that it were possible to place
N. G. Hedin's name before the
voters of those counties that no
other candidate could beat him, lie
remained loyal to Judge Butler as

despites trenuous urging on the part
of prominent men of The Dalles and
other parts of the district to throw
his hat Into the ring two years ago
and again in the recent primary
race. Hedin considerel Judge But
ler an able, wide awake senator,
fully equipped to make himself
heard at Salem, therefore declined
to make a race against him.
At the prerent time the situation
Is quit different with Butler's res
ignationa sort of free-for-all
scramble of many poorly qualified
candidates has clogged the commit
tee machinery. Fortunately no one
ha been stampeded and the issue
has boiled down to Hedin and. Ruck.
' Thinking men who favor HedH
as against Kuck do so not wishing
to say aught against the worthy man
from The Dalles. They simply
know Hedin to be a fearless scrap-,
per, a natural orator, a far-seeing
man' and one who is naturally quali
fied to carry on the work as legis
lator without weakening the good
Work "begun""1 by '"Senator'" Butter.
Anyone less gifted than Hedin, call
ed upon to sway men of higher edu
cation as well as hard headed far
mers and business men found in the
state senate, will fail to really repre
sent the two counties, and to offer
this important office to any good
man, however well known, who lacks
that oratorical gift coupled with a
keen insight of the needs of the
state, is to knock the props from un
der the counties' right to be heard
at the state capital.
Many letters from politicians in

took advantage of the time to
lay off from work. As a con
sequence The Times is one day
late this week, for which we ask
our readers' indulgence. -The

a year and on that day all true
Americans are supposed to
recognize the time and lay aside
business for the time being and

If-Hedin's chances would be 100
percent good before the voters a
fact no one is ready to deny then
the committeemen's duty is clear.
Hedin's work for thb part of the
district shines like a lighthouse
tamp. He has been foremost in all
things which brought about better
conditions and more trade to the
section. When the Mt. Hood Loop
road, wag sponsored by different
Central Oregon Cliques, Hedin went
after the Wapinitia-Maupin-Oak
Grove route and put it through.
Secretary Quayle of the Oregon
State Chamber of Commerce design
ated Hedin as "the Father of the
Mt Hood Loop." Senator George
Joseph said "he made the best
speech before the ' legislative as
sembly I ever heard" Mayor
Baker's laudation of Hedin's talk in
the East Portland sewer fight was
as follows: "Hedin's talk was the
"clearest presentation made to the
city council since I became Mayor
of the city."
Everyone in Wasco county has
heard Hedin before all kinds of
audiences, on a wide range of sub
jects. Would anyone like to see
him in action at Salem? Would
we, as voters, have- to apologise for
such a man as state senator? Then
why not be broad minded and put
aside all perronal petty matters and
send the right man to Salem to rep
resent this district as state senaor,
andlhat man is N. G. HEDIN.

Local Veterinarian Tells

Dr. Stovall Explain Hi Version, of
Malady Which i Causing Daath
of Many Cattle
, During the past three weeks there
have been many deaths among .
cattle on Bakeoveo and Buck. Hol
low. One man at the latter loca
tion, out of a herd of 40 attacked
by the malady had but seven survive.
Dr. StovaU was called and in the ,
following story he details at length
his opinion of the dkease:
(By Dr. L. S. Stovall, V. S.)
For the benefit of stockman and
others interested in the disease pre
valent amang the herds of cattle
ranging In territory tributary .to
Buck Hollow, in Wasco and Sher-
man counties, I will try to give, as
near as possiHe, observations : I
have made concerning the malady:

veterinarian and his deputies have
been on the ground and have made
observations, treated sick animals
and made post mortem examinations , ,
of dead ones, but no definite con- .
elusion has been mjide. Opinions
ranging from forage or plant
poisoning to black leg, have bein
advanced. The disease has been '
found to be a bad one, and conta
gious, and when once started will
practically eradicate a whole herd. ,

is an acute form of hemorrhage
septecemia, and as animals treated
for that disease have responded fa
vorably I will say something regard
ing the nature of that malady. .. -
Hemorrhage septecemia is a dis
ease caused oy a iniyutc vigauiu
kH: 4kn, Kalinrrc in the eamn ',
group as that causing swine plague
and cholera in chickens. The. dis
ensA mav either acute or" chronic,
and animals may be dead . before ,
septecemia symptoms will vary ac
cording to parts affected and to the
violance of the attack. There are
several forms, according to the parts
affected: The menengeal, affect
ing brain and nerves, causing ; se
vere convulsions; the culaneous, that
causes swelling of the tongue, throat
dewlap and sometimes lower, part of
legs; the intestinal, affecting the
alimentarv tract. Temperature will
range from 102 degrees to 106 de
grees. ;
The cattle affected in this neigh
borhood have shown symptoms
principally of the menengeal type;
some have had the symptomo of the
intestinal andcutaneosis. . The ones
having later symptoms have had the
menengeal symptoms also. Every
animal . has had periodic spells or
convulsions, strong Bymtoms qf
menengitis. . . '
It is well for stockmen to "keep ;
close watch of their herds, and if
any symptoms of this disease accur
affected animals should be isolated
and the proper authorities notified
at once. Vaccination and remedies
to control convulsions ., should be
given at once, and all hygenic and
precautionary measures taken, to the
end that the disease may be control!-;
ed i and stamped out.
The undersigned desires through
this medium to return thanks to all

words of sympathy to us during the
