HOOD RIVER GLACIER, THURSDAY, JULY 7, 1904.
With the passing of the Fourth of
July, the spirit of patriotism in ti e
hearts of true Americans runs high.
The music of the band and the popping
of firecrackers in the hands of the
small hoy tends to heighten it and it
is well that It should be thus, and It
always will tie, for the love of country
Is akin and next to the mother's love.
Mont of our people who did not at
tend a public celebration took their
families and lunch baskets and went
to the falls, or to some retreat In the
depths of the forest and spent a quiet,
The writer of these notes and wife
received the sad Intelligence last Fri
day of the death of a dear sister in
Yamhill county, and taking the early
morning train in company with Broth
er Troy Hhelley Hrrlved at the house of
mourning lale In the evening. Our
sister, Mrs. Mary L. Hilton, widow of
N. K, Sltton who died about two years
ago, was u pioneer of and spent
her whole lire on the border. When
the funeral hour came on Sunday al
U a. m , there were over 70 carriages
carrying friends and relations, who
accompanied the remains to the last
restlim ulace ou a hill overlooking the
vallev of North Yamhill. Mrs. Bitlon
was a devoted mother as well as a de
vout christian, as was demonstrated
In her every day life' and attested by
scores of relations una menu's uunng
the last sad parting hours. Kev. Co
berg and A. J. llunsaker of McMinn
villo olllelaled. The floral offerings
were profuse and of the choicest vari
eties, being presented by loving hands
from dill'erent points In the state.
There were children preseul from three
dill'erent families: her own, those of
her first husband, James I.. Jaughlin.
and those of her second husband and
first wife. Mr. and Mm. N. K. Hilton,
and five children being the fruit of the
second marriage with .N. N. hiiion.
Then there were grandchildren and
oreat Grandchildren, all anxious to
" pay a lust tribute of love to the mem
ory of one whose whole life work had
beer, a work of love and sacrifice, No
more fitting monument could lie reared
over the grave of any one than was
manifest on this occasion, and as an
unworthy brother we pause and drop
a tear over the bier, containing one
who was both mother and sister to us,
as well as mother to my motherless
little ones during the last oceauu.
There are left of the Hhelley fumlly,
which was Mrs. Hilton's maiden name,
four brothers and two sisters,, whose
hearts are shadowed with grief, as fol
