Virgil Wagner the son of Mr.
and Mrs. P. M. Wagner, was
born at The Dalles, Oregon, on
November 20, 1891. When five
years old his parents moved to
Garfield and resided there until
coming to Estacada. He attend­
ed the public schools in Garfield
r' tacada, where he gained
the reputation of possessing won­
derful vitality, which later sus­
tained him when his health broke
down. Shortly before the en­
trance of the U. S. into the war,
he attempted to enlist in the na­
vy but was rejected on account
of a defective heart, He then
went east to study locomotive
and railway engineering. When
the U. S. became a participant
in the war, he immediately tried
to enlist in the army, but was re­
jected. Later at his request, he
was ordered to present himself
for reexamination, which result­
ed in his assignment to the sup­
ply train at Camp Custer; Battle
CreeK, Mich. At this station he
contracted the mumps and pneu­
monia which was followed by tu­
berculosis in the left lung, and
was given a disability discharge
in January 1918.
He spent last summer at the
coast and for a time he seemed
to be regaining his health. In
October he and his brother Otis
entered a sanitarium at San Die­
go for treatment. The following
month he underwent a minor
surgical operation which was fol­
lowed by pneumonia, and his
parents were called to his bed­
side. After their arrival he be­
gan rapidly tq recover and three
weeks later they returned home
leaving him apparently convales­
cent. However the improvement
did not continue so he was trans­
ferred to a government sanitari­
um at Alpine. At this higher al­
titude he gained at first, but on
March 5th. a hemorrhage set in
and he passed away at 3 p. m.
The remains are being sent

BACK AT THE
OLO LOCATION
When our esteemed predeces­
sor, R. M. Stand ish, was in tin»
real estate business, he had an
office at the corner of Broadway
and 2nd St., across from the
pharmacy. When he ga,fe up
the business, he moved this
building on to one of the lots
owned by Mrs. M. H. Evans on
Upper Broadway, adjoining her
residence. Later she bought the
building and now has sold it to
W. F. Cary who has moved it
its former site, and will use it
again as a real estate office. Its
experiance is reminiscent of the
action of the king of France,
who marched his army up the
hill and then marched it down
I again.
L ectu re T onight
R. Foster Stone who lectured
so acceptably last night at the
High School auditorium, on “ A
Message for These Times,” will
i lecture again this evening. His
I subject will be “The World
Around Us: Its Lights and Shad­
ows; Its Mirth and Pathos.”
He will be assisted by Miss IIil-
dur Levida Lingren, soloist. No
admission will be charged hut a
silver offering taken up. P a r­
ents ar»1 especially urged to at­
tend. Mr. Stone proved himself
last night an able and forcible
speaker, and his lecture tonight
is in some particulars the strong­
est in his repetory. The musi­
cal features by Mist» Lindgren
and Miss Thatcher are of an ex­
ceptional order and a delight to
music lovers.
