Eldon, Infant son, of G. M. and Livo
nia Westfull, died at Lebanon Oregon,
after a short but painfi'l illness. All
that loving hands, and medical skill
could do was done; but all could not
avail. The little one could not be
kept, to the Loving Father took him
home. Here his stay was short; but
the lnye he expanded lives; it can
never tile: and In a few years love will
be reunited; to part no more. He was
lam to rest in tne Masonic lemetery
on Tuesday. The services were eJm
ducted by Rev. E. C. Jacka.
" 'Ood lent liim,' you sigh,
Kay, there let me break with your pain:
God's generous in Riving, say 1,
And the thing which he gives, I deny
That he ever can take it again.
He lends not, but gives to the end,
As he loves to the end. If it seem
That he d aw back a gift, comprehend
'Tis to add to i., rather, amend,
And finish it up to your dream.
He's ours, and forever. Believe,
0 fjilhci 1 (,1 mother, look hack
To the first love s assurance! To give
Means, with Ood, not to tempt or deceive.
With a cup thrust in lletijauiin b sack.
Bo look up, friends! You who indeed
Hare possessed in your house aswee' piece
Of the heaven which men strive for, must
Be more earnest than otheis ate sliced
Wheie they loite' , peisist where they cease.
You know how an angel smiles there,
Then, eor-ra.'. 'Tis easy for you
To le d.awu by a single hi-uwii hair
01 vhat curl, fioin carih'Bsioims and de
To the safe place above us. Adieu."

The American Agriculturist, In lui
annual review of the harvests, to be
published ill Its September Issue, esti
mates that the farm profits this year
will be f l,OUQ,00,ul)0 more than during
the recent years of depression. On the
basis of the present prospects the corn
crop of 1891 Is estimated to be 2,000,000,
030, bushels; wheat, 500,(KK),000 bushels;
and oats, (K2,0(M,000 bushels. The total
yield of wheat, corn and oats on the
basis of this estimate will be 23.8 per
cent, greater than last year, and 16.7
per ceil!, above the average of the pre-
cedinc eleven years. On this basis the
value of the coi n crop will lie to the
farmers, l,000,0(Kt,C00; wheat, $500,000,
000; and oats, Si60,(KI0,000i This is
$450,0rt0,000 more than the value of
these cropH in IKOtI, aud $025,000,000
more than the value of the average of
these crops from 18S0 to 1890 inclusive.
Cotton and rice will command better
prices than last season. Cattle will be
worth one-third more than 18 months
ago with other livestock in proportion
Tobacco is advancing heavily, and hops
are firm at good prices. Winter fruit
will command large values, and all
vegetables are yielding fairly with
every indication of a remunerative
market. The export outlook was never
better. Immensely increased sums
will be sent to the United States for
our produce. Of course ulterior Influ
ences may interfere with these brilliant
predictions, hut it is almost certain the
farmers will receive better profits on
their crops than ever before.
