Build Up the Grange.
As the evenings are lengthening
and the farming community has
more time for rest, recreation; and
mental improvement, those who be
lieve the Grange is a factor lor good
in the community should begin act
ual work in the building up of their
local granges. The too prevalent
opinion that the grange has but one
object should be dissipated and peo
ple should be taught that it has
many uses other than that of influen-
cing legislation or keeping track ot
the misdoings of county officials.
The most important function of the
Grange is to bring the members ot
rural communities together in a so
cial gathering that they may be im
pressed with the fact of their com
mon interest and persuaded that the
old maxim "in union there is
strength" has for them a valuable
local application. The Grange is
composed of good citizens, and when
they are banded together they are
capable of doiug a great work for
the community. The grange dance
takes the place of the miscellaneous
dance, and provides an innocent
pleasure that is greatly needed by
the hard workers who have too lit
tle enjoyment in the ordinary course
of their working lives The literary
program which should be a feature
of every grange meeting gives scope. J
to the talents of both old and young,
and trains the youug men in the
valuable ability of giving expression
to their thoughts. The effort of
every granger should be to make
his local organization a factor in im
proving the citizenship of his neigh
borhood, and this can best be done
by bringing into membership all the
men and women of the community
whose membership is desirable.
Let us see if we cannot send a re
port of a greatly increased member
ship to the next session of the
State Grange. Oregon Mist.

CAME TO OREGON IN 1854.
William Raper Barrett Diea at Hia
Heme In North Hilltboro
After a Short lllneta.
Probably no man in Hillsboro
was better known than William
Raper Barrett, father of Hon. V.
N. Barrett, of this city. For the
past three years, weather and the
condition of his health permitting,
he never missed going to the post
office daily and speuding an hour
or two in social conversation with
friends up town; and these friends
were not confined to a few, but in
cluded every man he met. In his
time he had been a man of great ac
tivity and considerable note, but
infirmities incident to old age made
it necessary for him to give up
work, but it was impossible for him
to sit with folded bauds and gaze
on events of the past, so he continu
ed to mingle with men, talk of the
present and speculate 011 things of
the future, and it seems but yester
day that he was on the streets as
was his want at mail time, giving a
kindly smile and a pleasant nod to
every one he met. He was born in
uammon county, Uhio, April 27,
1 83 1, and in 1854 came to Oregon
by the way of the Isthmas of Pan
ama, locating at Greenville, this
county. In 1855 he married Miss
Kliza Jane Purdin at Greenville,
she also being a pioneer of 1854.
Mr. Barrett when a boy learned
the carpenter and cabinet makers
trade, and built manv ot the houses
of pioneer times in this section.
Shortly after his marriage he en
listed in the Indian war, serving
under the late Col. T. R. Cornelius
in Co. D, First Oregon Volunteers,
afterwards spending a year in the
mines of Idaho, at that time a part
of Oregon. Returning to Wash
ington county, he was made dep
uty under Sheriff R. E. Wiley,
now deceased, along in the '6o's,
and held that po-ition during Mr
Wiley's term of office. He was also
deputy county assessor and held sev
eral other places of trust and respon
sibility. While not what would be
called a polititian, he took great in
terest in county afSVirs, and an of
ficial who went in to win invariably
had Mr. Barrett in the contest. He
was a stanch republican, could al
ways be found with th.it party in
victory or defeat and stood by his
friends after the contest was over.
Mr. Barrett lived on his farm at
Greenville for many years until
about four years ago, when he went
to Forest Grove, remaining a year,
then removed to Hi'lsboro, wheie
he resided until his death, which oc-

It will be beautifully illustrated

she left home she wore a black

she left her false set at home before
