The committee for securing a
sufficient number of names to as­
sure the Chatauqua here another
year, is working this week, try­
ing hard to complete their work.
Over sixty of the hundred names
necessary, have been obtained.
After the recent inspirarational
talk on Community spirit by Dr.
Hawn, it would be expected that
there would be a readiness to
respond to all efforts for im­
provement of an educational and
cultural sort. The Chatauqua
held here this summer was de­
cidedly good and uplifting, the
various numbers being fully up
to the average of much larger
ones with more elaborate pro­
grams and higher salaried lect­
urers and talent.

Married -In Oregon Cily, Sat­
urday, Augut 14, 1920, Miss
Edith 1. Ferry to Theodore A.
* The young couple are well and
favorably known, the bride being
the pretty and popular daughter
of Mr. and Mrs. Art Ferry of
Garfield, and the groom the son
of Mrs. N o r a Reid who lives
south of Estacada. They were
accompanied by the patents of
the bride and mother of the
groom to the county seat for the
marriage ceremony. The newly
married p a i r returned to the
home of the groom’s mother
Sunday, where that evening their
many friends gave them an old
fashioned charivari which for
noise was never surpassed, and
seldom equalled. They will make
their home at the groom’s mill in
the Logan country, accompanied
by the best wishes of all who
know them.
Tuesday afternoon a man in­
quired at the bank where the
coroner, sheriff or some one in
authority could be found. He in­
formed Mr. Stephens that he had
brought that morning, a party
of five from Fortland to the Nunn
ranch in Garfield, which adjoins
that of Doc Falmateer. The day
Richard K. Nunn of
Fortland, brother of the owner
of the ranch, had gone out, and
on arriving they found him dead,
and evidently for some hours.
There were evidences they feared
of suicide. Milt Marshall, depu­
ty sheriff was notified, who put
himself in touch with the author­
ities. The coroner came out in
tho evening and with Mr. Marsh­
all and Dr. McCall went out t«>
view the body. Dr. McCall ex­
amined it, and gave his opinion
that death was caused by a drug.
As Dr. Nunn had been in a very
nervous condition from over
work, evidently he had taken an
opiate to induce sleep and inad­
vertantly an over dose, so it was
decided that no inquest was nec­
essary. An underlaker of the
Holman Co. of Fortland was sent
out after the remains and took
them back that night. The de­
ceased was an eminent oculist
and had practiced in Fortland
from 1882 to 1915, when he went
to Europe to work in the war
hospitals, in the medical corps of
the British army, and had only
returned three weeks from over
seas He was a native of Eng­
land and educated at Dublin uni­
versity and about sixty-one years
of age. He leaves a widow and
a son.
