Alone in the dark, still hours of
night, the Angel ol Death called for
Mrs. Martha Proctor Sjiencer and
she answered with her life. Mrs.
Spencer, widow, aged almost GO
years. lived in her residence at the
southeast corner of First and Oak
streets, where she had rosided al
mort continuously since her hus
band's death, in 1884. She had been
imiiortuned by her children time and
again to make her home with them,
but she chose to be alone, though her
son, Oliver, who lives Just across
first strset, had got her to so far mod
ify her rule that she took her meals
with him and his family. On Sua
day morning last ho seut across to
call mother to breakfast, but the
messenger reported that the usual
answer was not made. Oliver went
himself, knocked at the door and
called, but received no answer. He
looked about in the fresh snow to see
if he could find trace of her leaving
the house. Seeing no tracks, he
0(ened the door and went to her
bed room, where he found her com
posed in bed, but life had departed.
Thero was yet some warmth in the
body, though the hands were icy
cold, from which circumstanco it is
thought death occurred in the after
part of the night, perhaps near morn
ing. Dr. Tamiesie was called and
found that death whs due to heart
failure. Without a struggle, the de
ceased passed away. The author
ities considered that an inquest was
unnecessary, hence none was held.
Tho funeral was on Tuesday after
noon from the Evangelical church.
Mrs. Spencer was born in Indepen
dence, Jackson county, Mo., June
24. 1833, and with her parents mov
ed to Holt county, that state, in
1842. She was marritd to James R.
Spencer, of Indian, In 1852, and
started across the plains the same
year. They lived in California, Ore
gon and Idaho until 1860, when they
settled at Champoeg. In 1872 the
family moved to Forest Grove, and a
short time afterwards to Cornelius,
where Mr. Spencer engaged in the
mercantile business. In 1880 a
inovo was made to Portland, where
Mr. Spencer engaged in the grocery
business. In July, 1S8I, Mr. Spenc
er wss taken sick with pneumonia,
and died on the 26th of that month.

A few weeks ago, when Mr. Funk,
of Bloomfield, Illinois, was In Ore
gon he talked about the Industry of
growing seed corn. The ecmpacy
with which ho is connected furms
about 2-1,000 acres, raising no gen
eral crop except seed corn. Every
bushel sold from tho farm is for
planting. Of course, there is corn
fed to the stock that has to be kept
for the betterment of the laud. The
company strives to get a perfect
corn. A variety that can be d
pended upon to produce even one
bushel per aero more than an old va
riety Is worth selecting, for one
bushi 1 per acre means thousands of
dollars more to the state, but the
company does not stop Ht a single
bushel increase, but four or five
bushels is harvested from each acre.
Attention is not confined to Improv
ing the yield, but for some purposes
a variety Is sought that will quickly
mature. Much has been done In
that direction, and corn has been
evolved that will rijien in 00 dtiys.
This variety ought to do well in Ore
gon, for if planted in May It would
be ready for harvest in August
But the most remarkable varistion
that has been secured is a change in
the grain itself. lu five years the
company has lieen able to increase
the protein in corn from 10 j to 15.
This remarkable increase almost
changes the nature of the grain, it
approaches wheat, which contains 10.
This is done at the expense of starch
and oil that is found in tho natural
grain. By another selection starch
has been increased from It J to 15 J
and oil from 10.C2 to 12.02. But
why make these changes? The I Hi
uois stockman wants a food that will
force his calves, sheep and pigs to
grow. He puts his bullocks ou the
block at the Hge of two years, hence
a food that is rich in protein is want
ed to hasten a lean meat growth.
When that hns been accomplished,
then the young uiiimul is fed a lib
eral ration of starchy and oily food
to hasten the fat development. There
is a hint to the Oregon farmer who
has wheat to feed. Force the young
stock on a wheat diet, supplemented
with clover and vetches, then finish
with corn meal and the other staichy
and oily foods. Mr. Funk stated
that it is a rare thing to see a 4-year
old bullock in tho feeding stalls.
They cannot afford to keep them till
that age is reached. Mr. Funk prac
tices what ho preaches. He found a
variety of white oats out here that
had been grown in a field that yield
ed 80 bushels to the acre. He took
some home, for while he did not
hope to get 80 bushels, yet he thought
it probable that the Oregon seed
might for a year or two produce five
or six bushels more than the seed at
home. If this is verified, he is will
ing to take his seed every year from
Oregou grown oats. It will be prof

Last Friday our winter common
ced and up to date we have had a
liberal taste. Tho first day, Friday
January 24th, snow fell in Hillsboro
to the depth of ouo and one half
Inches. By early evening a sharp
north-east wind was blowing which
continued all night. The temper
ature dropped to about 1C above
zero. Saturday was clear and cold,
though about 1 p. m. icicles formed
from the eaves on the south of roofs.
Sunday more snow fell so that by
Monday morning the white mantle
was about 6 inches thick, Sleighing
was fairly good and every kind and
class of slipping vehicle was out.
Monday and Tuesday were fair, a
few clouds in the forenoon but bright
sunshine in the afternoon, Snow
fell again Wednesday, from one to
two iuches, so that by yesterday
morning the snow was good honest
six inches deep. But the weather
had greatly moderated. A thaw
without doubt will rule today and
within a few hours Oregon will again
tie herself. Old settlers do not ap
preciate the "glorious frosty weather"

FIRES OF THE WEEK.
There were two fire alarms last
Saturday and one on Suuday, In
deed they were more than alarms,
for damage resulted. The first blaze
was in an upper sleeping apartment
of Mr. I hum! Butler's residence. The
brick fiue was defective in that there
whs a crevice through the brick and
through the outside plastering, so
that when a puff of wind went down
the chimney, sparks and flume from
the early morning fire set tho cloth
and paper burning. Mr. James But
ler, who occupied an adjoining room,
discovered what was doing and was
able to get water on before a "good
start" was made by the fire. The
loss is the chimney and cloth and
paper of the room, probably $50,
Fully covered by iDsurauce.
The second fire was in the S. P.
Co. 'a station at about 3 p. in., and
was due to a short circuit of. tele
graph wires. Tho wires leading to
the instruments are small insulated
affairs and it is supposed that
heavily charged electric light wire
fell acros s the telegrapli wire. This
probably happened in Portland
The slight insulation in the Hllls
boro office burned, and there was the
blaze. Mr. Beck with lost his lustra
ments, his blank reports and dam
age to his desk. . Ho prevented fur
ther harm by the prompt use of sta
tion hose pipe. The loss is about $30
The Sunday morning flro was at
Mrs. Cota's green-house and burned
till more damage was done say 1 100.
The department was promptly on
hand, but, fortunately, its services
were not required.
The railroad station alarm was
promptly remondcd to by the fire
companies, and the hurry was wit
ness d by a New York insurance
man who happened to be here, "I'll
see how they work," and away he
went with the apparatus.
Looking over the township maps
of the Tualatin Plains one is apt to
speculate as a the cause of the ir
regular boundary lines of the dona
tion claims. The map is a regular
crazy quilt pattern. tKiiug on the
ground, however, one can readily
understand why "this is thus." The
first squatter took his choice, good
prairio here, skippiuir brush land
there, taking a good grove for tiiu
ber, but leaving the scrubby trees
and the ground they stood on for
the others. Those taking laud later
had to squat on what was be
tween. All this was doue before the
government townships uu section
surveys were made, me oniy re
striction on the pioneer was that "No
Individual shall be allowed to hold a
claim of more than one eq'iflre mile
or 640 acres ia a sqnure or oblong
form, according to the natural situ
ation of the premises." I his re
stricted the number of corners which
a land holder might have, and
worked to the inconvenience of BenJ.
Catching and liov. Elkanah Walker,
of this county. Catching claimed a
beautiful tract of laud hard by For
est Grove, all prairie, while Mr.
Walker, coming ' liter. Snul more
timber than seemed desirable. Catch
ing soon Haw the need of more tim
ber for bis prairie, whort'fore he and
Walker proposed a swap, but as the
law read, they could not have L's to
their claim, since there would be too
many corners, nut mcy agn-eo 10
trade when their titles were secured,
and did. Catching, In addition,
bought 40 acres of timber from
Walker. The things happened 60
vears aito. A eonskiertiDie pun oi
the Catching prairie has grown up
to timber, second growth, while the
40-acre tract of timber has beeu re
claimed to plow land. Some years
ago G. C. Ritler bought the tract on
speculation. The timber cut into
cordwood repeid the purehuse price,
and then the stumps disippeired,
when the tract was created an addi
tion to the city of Forest Grove.

The new tax law is now In oper
