Jerome Gentry was born in Anderson

at the homo of of his parents near
Ubanon, Oregon, Oct. 2, 189t. He was the
eldest son of Mr. and Mrs. Charles Gentry

wli icli settled on Ms lungs, and developed
Into consumption, of which he died. A
year ago bis parents sent him on a visit to
ids old home in Tennessee, hoping that a
change of climate would benefit him, but
he gradually weaker and was brought home
by his father last August.
'Rome was always a good boy anda
general favorite with everybody. While away
on his last trip he witnessed tho baptism of
his cousins, which together with tho ser
vice, made a deep impression on him and
brought him under conviction. His life
seemed changed from this on, for he often
spoke of the hope he had of the life beyond,
lie was a most patient sufferer gentle and
uncomplaining, doing everything he was
hidden without a murmur.
He was very fond of music and one day
said, "If they have lots of music in Heaven,
there's where I want to go."
As the end drew near he called the sor
rowing family about him and calmly bid
t horn alt good bye, getting a promise from
each one that they would all meet him in
Heaven. Later he seemed to suffer a good
ileal, and whisiercd, "Ask the Lord to
take me tonight," then soon he passed i
away to be forever with the Lord. "Blessed
are the dead that die in the Lord."

Light and Water.
A petition signed by a majority of
the business men and other citizens of
the place, was presented to the council
on Tuesday night, asking that the
necessary steps be taken to enable the
people to vole on the question of bond
log the city for the purchase of the
eleotrio light plant. The petition was
referred to the committee on ways aud
means, who will give it proper con
sideration. The petition was pretty
generally signed and seemed to indicate
a desire that the people be allowed to
vote on the question. A' thorough
canvass is beinf made by our citizens
and the matter is being discussed.
There IS an evident desire to own the
plant, but the people are reluctant to
bond tlie city. Atpresentlheresourcee
do not meet the demand of the city
and this deficiency will iucrease each
year. A tax will be necessary, and it
is hardly probable that a 8-mlll tax,
the limit under our charter, will suf
fice. It is claimed that the city can
save Beveral hunbred dollars a year by
purchasing this plant.
Strawberries in October.
While working lu his strawberry
patch one day this week, trimming the
vines aud preparing them for winter
Mr. Stephen A. Cochell found a large
bunch of strawberries in every stage of
growth. There were, op oue vine, a
lurge bunch of blossoms, strawberries
Just forming, strawberries half grown,
and the big, red, ripe strawbeiries. It
can truly be said this is the 'uud of
gardeners, when it Is considered that
strawberries ripen early in June and
are Btill with us the latter part of

as the "Lost Emigrant Party" of 1846,

who ciime near perishing, and doubt

Ings iu what is now known as Eastern
Oregon, is a well-known fact. But
that the richness of that discovery has
been greatly exaggerated is, I think,
no doubt true. That we, Mr. Salt-
marsh and myself, found the place for
which we started, I have no doubt,
but which, as I feared might be tlie
case, had been located, and is now
being worked, under the title of the

Tuesday evening. All the members
Minutes of previous meetings were
read and corrected.
Tlie committee on ordinances reported
that the proposed ordinance sent to the
council bylhe S. P. Railroad Company
.was faulty and did not meet with their
approval. The matter in question is
the building of crossings over tlie rail
road track on certain streets. The mat
ter was discussed by the council, and
some of tlie members expressed them
selves as being strongly opposed to the
propositions of the company. The com
pany want crossings made on only two
streets, and want the council to agree
to never make nor attempt to make any
more crossings across tho track; be
sides, the company wants the "city to
build the crossings and keep them in
repair. Tlie committee was instructed
to reply to tlie company, admitting
nothing and granting nothing, and to
draw up an ordinance to suit themsel ves,
