Mrs. F. L. Strang of Sparta re

"I am Htill at the mime old place

ng liere now, and it keeps me
pretty busy keeping the cars and
rail era in running condition. 1
invo ncen out on several trips
and hood a lot of France; it is a
very pretty country but it is
badly shot to pieces but I have
not aeon much of the shooting as
1 have not been very close to the
front and don't have any chance
to see any of the excitement at
the front. Have the News sent
to the G12 Aero Sqdrn. as 1 don't
get them very regular. 1 haven't
got a letter from anyone for a
month. I don't see what is the
cause unless thoy got lost on the
way. There was a while that I
got my mail very regularly but I
haven't lately. Wish 1 could tell
more about this country but you
know vt' can't writo much, but
when I get homo I can tell you a
,t that you never thought of."

To the Women of Baker Co.:
The attention of Baker county
hv3Kf6n' Tilled to a new course
that the 0. A. C. is starting in
horticulture for women. While
it is a one-year course they can
enter at any time. The course will
aid women in either running their
own tracts or to become orchard
foremen. It will include lectures
as well as orchard and laboratory
work including picking, packing,
pruning, spraying, etc. Three
half days each week will be spent
in the field.
There will also be courses offer
ed in dairy manufacture, general
agriculture, etc. While people
cannot come for the college year,
perhaps they could attend for
thref or six months, and with the
tremendous labor shortage, it will
offer a line opportunity for women
to become proficient in farming
and especially in orchard work.

Portland, Ore.. Oct. 24, 1918.
Mr. C. 13. Thorp, Richland, Orr.
Dear Sir: I take the liberty of
addressing you on the subject of
Judge Anderson's candidacy for
re-election as Circuit Judga in the)
Baker district. I am advised that
the opposition questions Judge
Anderson's qualifications lor the
office he now fills and charges that
he is without standing before the
The present members of the
Supremo Court cannot with pro
priety take part in political con
t'ists, nor can they publicly an
swer such charges as these. I an,
no longer a member of the Court
and bcc no reason why I should
not speak freely on this subject.
In fact my sense of fair play de
mands that 1 speak.
For a year and a half prior to
June -I, 1018, I was a member of
the Supreme Court of Oregon and
during that period a larger share
of the work from Judge Ander
son's court was referred to me
than to any other member of the
Court. I found that he had been
careful, intelligent and conscien
tious in the performance of his
duties. It was impossible to
doubt his earnest desire to be just
to every litigant and to reach a
correct solution of every contro
versy which came before him
Judge Anderson is well irrounded
in legal principlos and ' has the
essential judicial qualification of
good common sense.
I have no quarrel with Judcrr
Anderson's opponent. This letter
is written as a matter of justice
to a hard-working, high-minded,
conscientious public servant.
Very truly yours,
On His Way Over.

The doctor replied: Well, you
may not live longer, but it will
certainly SEEM longer."
It's much the same with pov
erty. If you have to struggle all
your life with poverty and never
"get ahead," you. may not live
longer but life will at least SEEM
plenty long enough. Why not
start the saving habit now by
opening a little account at our
bank and adding to it regularly?
It will bd the best move you ever
made. Start today, not next

Mary Ann McClintock was born
at Chillicothe, Ohio, on July 12,
1847, and with her parents came
to Wapello county, Iowa, xvhen
but a child. In February. 1864,
she was married to VV. W. Kirby
at Rockport, Mo With her hus
band and family she arrived in
Eagle Valley on Sept. 27, 1887,
and has sine resided here.
In 1874 she accepted Christ a3
her leader and united with the
Christian church and has since
been a constant and devoted
christian as well as a sincere ad
vocate of temperance.
Her life was one of devotion to
her family, yet she always found
time to do a kind deed or lend as
sistance to a neighbor, friend or
stranger, and though her last
years were filled with much pain
she was never heard to complain.
For a number of years Mrs.
Kirby had been a sufferer from a
sort of stomach trouble, the exact
nature of which physicians were
never able to discover. Some
moaths ago she was taken worse
and .several weeks since was
removed to the home of her son
Jas. A., in Baker, and later re
moved to St. Elizabeth Hospital
where everything possible was
done to relieve her suffering.
