Sarah E. Bates was born in
Niagara Co. N. Y. February 9th,
* 1840. When she was three years
old her parents moved to Oakland
Co. Michigan, whence a few
years later, they removed t o
Knox Co. Missouri. Here at the
age of twenty, she was uuited in
marriage to Edwin Bates. They
arrived in Oregon January 11th,
1871, first at Oregon City, and
later took a claim on the Salmon
River i n Clackamas Co. They
have lived in this county ever
since with the exception of two
years s p e n t in Multnomah.
During this time they were at
different points in this vicinity,
coming to Estacada some nine or
ten years ago. Four children
were born to them, Maud M.
Howell of Ashland, Ore., E. N.
Bates of Barton, F. W. Bates of
Eagle Creek a n d Francis who
died at the age of three years.
For over fifty-three years their
married life was most happily
spent together. Mrs. Bates was
always in good health until she
suffered a stroke a few months
ago, from which she never re­
covered, but after a temporary
improvement gradually sank un­
til she passed away on Wednes­
day the 19th.
The funeral service took place
in the Christian Church of which
she was a member, the Rev. J.
F. Dunlop, pastor of the M. E.
Church officiating. The auditor­
ium was crowded to the limit,
showing t h e vast respect and
affection in which the deceased
was held. The sympathy of the
entire community goes o it to the
bereaved family especially to the
husband, to whom the loss must
must be most severe. Words are
inadequate to meet the situation,
but what they lack in expressive­
ness is made up in sincerity, and
no doubt afford some s ight con­
solation to the mourners’ hearts.
Thanksgiving is a season of
appreciation for what has come
to the country as well as for
what it has escaped. On bom
counts the people of America
have abundant reason on this day
to express their gratitude in ac­
cordance with the national insti­
tution so wisely ordered long ago.

For dull case broken
By sharpest dole,
For the dart that is driven
Through fle«h to soul;
For wrath made sterner
By right's eclipse,
For brave songs breaking
From pain-wrung lips—
We praise Thee, O God I
For faith that is born
From the burning nest,
For the spirit's flight
On its starward quest,
For peace that dwells
At the heart of strife,
For death that scatters
The seed of life—
We praise Thee, O God!
Clackamas County through the carrying of the road bond issue
by a big majority, has put itself in line with all the progressive
sections of the state. The only opposition was from those precincts
which had declared themselves opposed beforehand. Their action
will react against them. It is to be hoped that when they begin to
enjoy the benefits which will accrue to the whole county, from the
increased facilities of transportation, which the net work of paved
roads will afford, that they will be ashamed of themselves. The
result of Monday’s election should put more zest into our Thanks­
giving celebration today, as it is the augury of an eru of great
business activity and prosperity.
