"Ten Years in Oregon" is an interest
ing serial in the Sunday Oregouiari made
tip from a history of the state published
in 1844 by Daniel Lee and J. H. Frost,
first missionaries to Oregon. The ac
count of the establishment of the
mission at The Dalles is of particular
local interest, as an account is given of
an overland trip from the mission to the
Willamette valley. Hood River is spok
' en of aB "White river," because of the
milky appearance of the water at the
time. Following is part of the story :
The members of the Oregon mission
considering The Dalles on the Columbia
river as a promising field for missionary
effort,' it was determined to begin a new
station at that place, which is about 80
miles above Foit Vancouver.and accord
ingly, in 1838, Mr. PerkinB snd the writ
er appointed to proceed to the Dalls
for that purpose.
Leaving the Walamet station on the
14th of March, they embarked in two ca
noes with a small cargo of supplies,
passed down the Walamet river, and
then ascended the Columbia to the place
of destination, where they arrived en

Wednesday the 22d.
About three miles below the DallB,and
a half mile from the shore on the south
side, was found a valuabh spring of wa
ter, some rich land, and agood supply of
timber, oak and' pine, and an elevated
and pleasant location (or a house, al
most in their shade; with a fine extend
ed view of the Columbia river, three
miles on either hand. The back ground
was broken and billy, and thinly wood
ed. Here, about the 1st of April, a
house was begun. The Indians assisted
in cutting the timber, and bringing it
upon the spot. Meantime, Mr. Jaeon
Lee arrived on his way to the United
States, accompanied by Mr. F.dwardB,
and another gentleman, Mr. Ewlng, of
Missouri, and two Indian bovs of the
Chenook tribe, W. M.Brooks and Thom
as Adams, who had been some time in
the mission school at the Walamet
station. The object of his visit was to
obtain additional facilities to carry on,
more etticiently and extensively, the
missionary work in -Oregon territory.

dians to convey himself to Wallah-wal
lah, where he was to purchase the horses
needed to make the tour of the moun
tains, that being the usual plac- of out
tit for parties going by . land into
the interior, he took an affectionate
leave of his friends, Mr. Perkins and
the writer, and set off on his arduous
journey .accompanied by the aforenamed
gentlemen and the native boys. The
same day Mr. Perkins embarked in a
canoe for the Walamet station in order
to bring his wife to the Dalls, and re-
turned in safety on the 5th of May. The
building of the house went on
amidst manv interrnptions, and it was
Hashed before whiter. Mr. Perkins'
hiinily occupied it long before it was
.roofed ; but as the climate was dry, and
ruin seldom fell in summer, it was quite
shI'b. Several trips were made to Walamet
and Vancouver by water during the
year for supplies. One journey was
made to f ori w anan-waiiaii 10 genium
es and another overland, to the Walamet
station, to obtain cattle. These various
journeys and voyages took us away from
the station about five months each dur
ing the year. Immediately on our arri
val at the station we began holding
meetings with the Indians on the Sab
bath; speaking to them in the"jargon,"
through an interpreter. This imperfect
medium of communication sprang from
the traffic of the whites with the In
dians, and it embraces some English,
some French, and many Indian words,
some Chenook, some Wallah-wallah,
and some of the other tribes, and is un
derstood more or less by individuals in
almost all the tribes beyond the moun
tains. Their behavior at woiship was
vorv serious, and most of them would
kneel in time of prayer. Our meetings
were held without, among the oaks, or
under a pine, whose cooling shade
screened us from the burning sun. A
lew scattering stones afforded seats for
some, and others sat quietly on the
around ;a manner of sitting to which
they are well used, and which they
ureter to any other.

are received and mixed, is habitually
converted by many persons into a
chemical retort for all sorts of drugt

organs of the body, from dandruff to
corns. The writer believes that he can
give no more and better reasons for
his confidence in the therapeutic value
of remedies than moat other physi
cians, but he wishes to emphasize here
the transcendent element of common
sense In their administration. Before
and above all things, however, what it
wanted Is a clean gnstro Intestinal ca

erly used is the best agent to effect that
cleansing. On a par with this canal In
