One of the young ladies who was absent

Snow lias been falling iff and on for
two weeks, and still it snows. There is
about bIx inches of snow on the ground
at present, and about six inches of mud
under that; consequently we hear no
sleigh bells singing yet.
A. T. Dodge was seen one day the first

job and put his sleigh under the shed.

Mr. and Mrs. Geo. W. Jones and their
little son arrived home Friday evening
from their Fortland visit which they
extended a? far as Hood River. Mr.
Jones was verv favorably impressed

home a number of samples of apples,
which certainly rank above the famous
Yamhill red apples. Land values in the
fruit section are phenomenally high,

Land set to strawberries
brings cash rental of 110 an acre, and

Evidently Mr. Jones failed to acquire
reliable information regarding the value
of Howl River fruit lands. Prices of
good fruit lands range from f 100 to IO0
per acre, according to location and
whether now producing fruit or not.
We know of none for sale that are belli
above the latter figure. As to rentals
of land set to strawberries, every acre of
good thriftv strawberry plants in the
valley will "readily command a cash ren
tal of 40 per acre, and will pay the
renter from 100 to flttO an acre clear of
all expenses outside his own labor.

By authority from the postal depart
ment, Sherman Young, the carrier, ser
ved notice on the residents of Odell last
Monday that unless the road connecting
the East and West side roads south of
here was fixed in a few days, our splen
did mail service would be cut off. This
is as it should be. The government is
not required to .furnish mail over al
most impassable roads when there is no
good excuse for their being in such con
dition. This should prove a lesson that
ought to be remembered. Wherever the
surface water is drained off there are no
bad roads, and to do this requires little
work if done at the proper time. Road
supervisors should be required to give
bonds, and held responsible for such
condition of roads as now exist.

Rev. W. O. Eliot, jr., who has so
acceptably filled the pulpit of the Uui-
tariau church in im city tor the past
two years, has been compelled to re
sign that positiou owing to the pres
sure of denominational work in differ
ent points of the state and Northwest.
Mr. Knot, under the auspices ot the
American Unitarian Association, has
been active since March last as a super
intendent of field work in the Pacific
Northwest. The hitter department of
his work has now developed to such
proportion to where he feels it impossi
ble to do justice to the local work. For
this reason he has resigned the care of
the parish in Salem, in order to devote
himself solely to the iieia work, lie
expects to continue bis headquarters
til sulem tor a lew months. At an au-
journed meeting of the First Uuilarian
society, held lust evening, Mr. Eliot's
resignation was accepted and itev.
t rank A. rowen called to succeed Dim
to take charge December 1.
A resolution was ottered and spread
upon the minutes tendering Mr. Eliot
the society's appreciation of his labors
among them aud expressing profound
regret that circumstuuces maae neces
sary bis withdrawal.
During Ms two years incumbency
Mr. Kliot had endeared himself in the
hearts of his congregation, by his lofty
character and gracious personality,
and his high culture, as well as schol
arly attainments have marked him as
one of the ablest divines in the city.
In his work as field superintendent Mr.
Eliot has built up the Unitarian move
ment in Oregon with gratifying suc
cess, and church organizations Bre

business will require our attention
henceforth. It won't. Neither did
we quit because we were making more
money than we knew what to do with.
We simply tried and failed. The Sen
tinel has grown weaker almost hourly
since its birth; iu fact, we have some
times thought its birth was premature
by several years. We have given it
copious doses of patent medicine ads.,
si'ch as colic, cholera, diarrhea remedy,
electric bitters, Bucklln's file salve,
cancarets, catarrh remedy, no-to-bac,
and a dozen different kinds of pills, but
all to no avail. Its circulatory system
was all out of whack, and we were un
able to get it in whack. We have stood
by it through thick and thlnj we have
hoped great things for it; we have
scratched for it like a mother hen
scratcheth for her only chick. We
have worn so many patches on our
breeches that we could hardly tell
which was patch and which was
breeches. And we don't propose to do
it any more. But we are not going to
kick about the people. The town and
surrounding community is full of good
people. Koine of them have given us
much advice about how to run a paper,
and we do not doubt that it was well
Intended. We believe it came from the
bottom of their hearts. Perhaps it
would have been better had we follow
ed some of this advice. True, we would
have come to grief sooner, but the
agony would have been sooner over,
We are sorry to hang up In this fash
Ion, but running a newsMiper for glory
Is a mighty poor job, and we long for
a full stomach once more. If any other
fool ever starts a paper here we will, as
the old Scotchman once said, 'admire
his pluck, but dora his judgment.' "

ance thrown immediately into the fire. The number upon none of the cards were seen except by the
person writing them.
