Monday the ther mometer went down below the freez ing point and there whs a light snow fall during the day. Tuesday morning the mercury went down to 15 degrees aboi-e zero in town, and in some parts of the valley went to-10, with about 3 Inches of snow on theground. Wednes day morning it was about 2 degrees warmer, and the weather bureau at Portland predicted snow for Eastern Oregon Wednesday night. Thursday morning the snow commenced falling before dayliirht and continued till about 9 o'clock.- It commenced again last evening, about . 5 o'clock, and this morning about 12 inches of beautiful snow covers the ground. Thestorm is re ported to have been general all over the United States "d the cold weather quite severe In the northern part. Hood River seems to have gotten only the tail end of the great storiu, but we had enough of it to suit most of us. C. A. Kaeppler of Kaeppler & Co., commission merchants, Fargo, N. D., was in Hood River yesterday inquir ing after our strawberries. He' attended the Northwest Fruit Growers' Asso ciation meeting at Yakima, where he listened to a paper read by a fruitgrwer named Offuer of Walla Walla. Mr. Kaeppler says Mr. Oflner's fruit is of ten received at Fariro, and at Minne apolis the commission men have learn-J eJ that anytuing packed by ftlr.

If any one thinks weareeggsaggerating in this last statement let him ask Tom W'iekens. 'The severe cold weather during the week interfered with the working of t lie hydraulic machinery of the locks at the Cuseades, consequently the Reg ulator was unable to make regular trips. A woodchopping bee was held by the members of (lie U. B. Church and friends on last Wednesday. The wood was cut on Mrs. Oiler's place, by the 'a ii roaa bridge.

Frankton Notes. The voters of this district met at the school house, Monday, and voted a 3 mill tax for school purposes for the year 1897. Last year a 4mill tax- was voted, but 1J mills went to furnish the upper room with new desks. The as sessable property in the district amounts to $60,900. Last year it was $63,000. No one could give the reason for the big falling oft' in one year. The 3 mills, it is expected, will run five month's school in each department. Last year the primary department had six mouths and the upper room five. After the business for which the meet ing was called was transacted, it was decided by those present to sell the old organ belonging to the district from time immemorial. Mr. E. Locke was elected auctioneer, and after lively bid ding, the organ was knocked down to Warren Miller for $2.60, to be paid in cordwood.' The subject of buying 1 1-8 acres of land adjoining the school grounds from Warren Miller- was dis cussed. Mr Miller has consented 'to take $65 for the land., and at the annu al meeting in March arrangements will likely be made to purchase the same. The Frankton literary held a good WaslEi Co-Opgb life ; ., r ; , ' Herewith I submit my report as Manager Association of Portland, Oregon, for the year 1893. Since our Incorporation we have had but 36 assessments 22 by death and 14 by maturity. In organlziug our Association we did not expect to enrich our members, but we did promise that we could pay to every one that would take out a policy, and fulfill their contract with the Association, to return all their money, together with interest from 100 to 300 per cent, upon their investment. The Association has thus far kept Its part of all contracts to the letter, and has done much better than was ex pected, owing to the hard times, as many of our members have been unable to retain their standing, by prompt payment of assessments, which is the life of all Associations. Of the 14 matured policies held by our members and paid, I will give but one as an illus tration of results, all the others having received a much larger percentage: Mr. William Con nell of Portland, Oregon, paid the largest assessment of any member of the Association, and greater than any member will have to pay again, on account of the reduced age of new mem bers. Mr. uonnen paia an assessment oi tn on every mousana uonars carnea, wnicn ne promptly paid. He received all his money back, with 200 per cenMnereaseon his Investment. The above is the smallest per cent, of the 14 matured policies that have been paid the death policies all being much larger. Mr. E. Kittsmiller of Lewiston, Idaho, was a member for eight years and died in ISM, being Assessment No. 33. His nominee received over $10 for every dollar of cost to him. While another member, Mr. William Hoicomb of Salem, Oregon, who died In 1890, received through his nominee over 100 for each dollar of cost to him. On the 36 assessments we have paid an average of over 600 per cent. being better than we expected. One tiling I should like to have thoroughly understood, and that is that the policy holders are the Association, and not the directors, as many seem to think. W are the servants to do the work, without one penny or favor for our time and labor as directors. We all have to pay our annuals and assessments or be suspended. We have no favorites or dead beats In this Association. Since our incorporation we have issued 1,475 In ISBIt, with over one and a half million dollars o.lnsurance, and increasing one to three members per day. All should be as willing to pay as they are to receive. It is necessary for each member to be prompt in duty the great requisite of success in all fraternal and assess ment associations throughout tne world. Wishing you a Happy New Year, I remain, very truly yonrs, . . .,- CLARK HAY, General Manager. . The Washington Co-Operatlve Life Insurance Association was born in the Sons of Tem perance hall. In Portland. Oregon, with the view to making the lodge a self-sustaining institu tion. A committee was appointed to formulate a plan to guide the Society. It took the American table of mortality of life expectancy for a foundation to build upon, and to All that vacuum that exists in all fraternal and assessment associations in the world. Our policies are made payable at death or at the end of life expectancy, so that a person receives the ben efit of his policy in his lifetime when he needs It most. It is this feature that .makes the Washington Co-Operatlve Life Insurance Association the most equitable of any. The plan has been examined by one of the best actuaries in the United States in life insurance, and he has pronounced it correct, if not superior to all other plans. '.". Now, my friend, you are the one most interested, but I do not advise any one to take a larger policy than he can carry. Any young person can carry a policy of 82,000, keep it up, and you will bless the day you Joined the Washington. Our assessments compare favorably with all other Associations on the fraternal plan. The Washington is the oniy endowment company in tne worm wnere tne policy noiaer interest double the cost. meeting last Saturday night. Tbe Frankton legislature was called to or der by Luther Miller, who was selected by the assembly as temporary speaker. Permanent organization was effected and Mr. M. P.

House bill No. 1, au act for the annexation of Frankton to Bel mont, introduced by a Belmont repre sentative, secured three readings.
