SHALL STOCK RUN AT LARGE.
A Question Which Will Be Voted Upon
in Linn County In June.
A good many people perhaps have
hot given much attention to one ques
tion which is to lie voted upon in the

hundred or more legal voters of any
county in the state being filed with the
county clerk before the time of giving
the notice of the general election In

notice to be given that at such election
a vote wil be taken for aud against
stock running at large.
Section 2. In voting for and against
stock running at. large, it shall be
printed or written on tbe same ballot
with candidates for county offices, and
shall read, "For ruunlug at large
Yes," or "For running at large No,"
and the votes thus cast shall be can
vassed as those for auy county officer.
Section 8. If the majority of all
the votes cast shall be against stock
running at large, the couuty clerk
shall give notice by publishing in some
newspaper for three consecutive weeks
that in sixty days from the date of said
notice It will' be unlawful for stock to

vided, that after tbe owner has been
once notified that his stock 1b running
at large, it will not be ueccBsary to
notify such owner or keeper on the
stock being found at large a second
time, if it is known and is susceptible
of proof that such owner or keeper is
aware that such stock Is ruunlug at

Section 5. Any person fiuding any
stock at large, coutrary to the provis
sions of this act, aud any constable of

Mrs. Dulcina P. Ridgway, Grandma
Ridgway, as she was kuown by all her
frieuds, passed away' on May 2, 1896.
Though a constant sufferer for several
years she was ever patient in bearing
losses and enduring pain, and was
always pleased and grateful for the
smallest kindness or favor shown her.
Her christian faith aud cairn endur
auoe of palh and suffering, her kind
aud gentle ways, her sweet aud peace
ful face will long be remembered by
her many friends ami loved ones. ,
To her memory the following lines
We have lain her 'neath the sod,
Where tbe grasses wave and blow.
Bhe has received tbe last fond token
From her loved ones here below.
Calm and patient here in life,
Enduring pain and bearing loss;
Now she's joined the throng immortal,
Received her crown, laid down her cross.
All her trials now are ended,
All her sufferings of pain are o'er;
She has gone to meet her loved ones
Over on the other shore.
We think not of tbe cold grave yonder,
Nor of her in pain distressed:
But think of her at home in heaven,
Of her joys, and peace, and rest.
Could wecatch but one glimpse only, '
Of her face so pure and bright,
It would turn our hearts of sadness
Into one of Joy and light,
We would not call her back
From that dear home so blest;
Yet we miss her, sadly miss her,
But rest on, O dear one, rest !
For we know that she is waiting,
Over on yon shining shore,
Waiting to welcome each dear one,
Where we'll meet to part no more.
