needs of Oregon and as he has seved
several terms as state senator from
his district h in touch with matters
pertaining to state government. He
is capable, honest and would, if elect

be proud of.
The Times hopes it will be given a
chance to champion his election,
knowing that by so doing it would be
working for the succes of one of the
squarest shooters and strongest busi
ness of the state.
DISPARITY IN ASSESSMENTS
There seems to be several angles
in our method of making assess
ments. For instance: The county
will advertise and soli a plat of real
ctatr for a nominal sum am! then
turn around and v-zs -ss it for
many times the amount received for
it, A ea.'c pertaining to that
Method is cited by a correspondent
to The Times, who says:
"One lot holder in Maupin is
wondering how they get it. A lot
sold by the county last year for
$12.00 is this year assessed at $80.
"Perhaps they take an average.
In ages to come perhaps this assess-

is left among the mourners.
At a nearly ago Mrs. Drown united
with the Methodist church. She had
always been a willing worker in
church affairs, and through her ef
forts, with those of others, the
church at Wapintia was enabled to
ox t. At the time of h-r death she
was president of the Ladirs Aid of
the Wapintia church.
Mrs. Prown was strUkrn at her
home on Thanksgiving day. The fol-
i lowing Sunday she was token to the
hospital at The Dalles, and from her
arrival there continued to sink. She
was a victim of paralyt is, which
gradually sapped her strength until
!he final summons came, which was
on the date above recorded.
Mrs. Mr.ry Brown was one of
God's noble women. No call for
:i;d or assistance was. pa sed up by
her. Fhe was ever willing to extend
succor to the afflicted and her
purse was always open in aid of
any church need. As a ngeihbor
she was held in high esteem; as a
business woman she was known and
admired for her astitueness and fair
ness. As a wife she was all that
the name implies. Her death has
created a crater in the Brown home
that nothing can fill, and the griev
ing husband, while almost inconsol
able is buoyed up by the knowledge
that she has gone before ami awaits
him in a better land than this, Mr.
brown has the sympathy of thi.t

Mrs. Brown's remains wore laid
