term as master, and has had only a
short experience in grange work, but
he is well versed in the performance
of his duties.
They have 110 members and arc
( ontinually adding to their numbers.
One reason of their success is that
they are striving to be as near per

do 'with their future prosperity.
They now have undertaken a
scheme of co-operation which if fol
lowed up as it should be, will be, of

under 21, but made one of the best
snccchcs of the campaign, attracting
a good deal of attention. Like too
many precocious people he failed to
make good later and was soon lost
sight of. As a rule the successful

The price of weekly newspapers

Wheat was then the almost ex
clusive product of the county, the
farmer depending upon it for his in
come. The product of the county was
estimated al 1,500,000 bushels, prob

have done well in diversifying their
business, branching out into dairying,
stock, clover, fruit, etc. The value of
land has increased several fold.

as musicians.
The first sermon the Misfit man
heard in the valley was by Rev. R. L.
Stevens, in the Episcopal church at
Corvallis. It was a very plain affair
in which the minister told his people
how he had worked for nothing and
even built his own fires and did all
the janitor work. Rew Stevens was
also "astor of the church at this city,
and afterwards devoted his exclusive
time here. He was an original genius.
Besides preaching he was active in
athletics, a member of the Linns,
champions of Oregon, and occasion
