As a matter of interest to our
readers and as a bit of early his
tory, we give the story of how
Mr. Craig gained the rank of
Captain, it being generally sup
posed that he gained that rank
while serving in the Civil War.
In 1878 the Umatilla Indians
went on the .war path and the
settlers of Ih'is oection being few
in number and far from at.y fort
became alarmed of the possibility
of being attacked and perhaps
massacred by the savages. Mr.
Craig secured a commission as
Captain, organized a company of
volunteers, obtained sixty rifles
and 1000 rounds Of ammunition,
and built a stockade near the
the present residence of Mrs. P.
A.. Moody. . Later on in the
same year the Captuin with his
company camped at the mouth
of Daly Creek and kept back the
redskins while tho crops were
being harvested in "the valley.
Smith went away on his sum
mer vacation. He took along
plenty of cash, BUT the day he
arrived at his destination the
light lingered gentry "hfteJ his
roll" and he was up against it
right Now young Ferris, who
has an account at this bank
and made the samu trip carried
just enough cash to pay for meals
and other necessities, BUT be
fore leaving he had us send.'a let
ter of identifuatioh to a bank in
tho place where ho, intended to
visit. He was thus enabled to
check against his account here
for what ho needed who; he
needed it. They can "pick" your
pocket but tliey can't pick"
your bank account. No charge
for letters of identification at this
ad) Eagle Valley State Bank
