For the first time in years Mr.
Harris had planned to take a little
vacation and attend the commence
ment exercises in connection with
Russell’s graduation from O. A. C.
He was perfectly delighted with the
prospect for this trip; and nad so
expressed himself to several o f his
friends. It was late in the week be
fore he knew that he could leave his
wife, who had had a major opera
tion at the Community hospital. As
soon as it was known that Mrs. Har
ris was recovering nicely, the ar
rangements were completed for his
trip, and he and James left the
ranch at four o’clock on Sunday
morning in their Ford roadster.
They had passed through Corvallis
at about one o'clock, and were going
over to Salem to meet Walter, when,
at a point about three miles south
of Salpm the accident occurred that
ended his earthly life.
Mr. Harris has been a faithful
member of the Presbyterian church
for many years; and at the time of
his death was a member of the Fed
erated church board and also an
Elder in the church at Central Point.
He was consistent in his life, careful
in his advice as an official in the
church, kind, brotherly, unselfish,
and always stood for the highest and
best things. His seat among us is
vacant; but the sweet memory o f his
presence will abide with us. W. B.
