Some Notable Windows. The Cowls memorial windows, three in number, have been placed in position in the new Christian church, Mr. D. L. Povey of Portland, the manufacturer, be ing present the past week to superintend tbe work. The aggregate cost of the windows was $000, and they are tbe con tribution and pride of Mrs. Lucy Cowls. The largest window is in the north end of the building. Its center piece bears a likeness of the Christ, beneath which is inscribed A bsolutely P ure Makes the food more delicious and wholesome ROYAL BAKING POWDER CO., NEW YORK. THE EVE.1T OF THE M’ITllH Committee met at 2 p. m. according to adjournment. The chairman being ab sent the meeting was called to order by the secretary and Hon. R. P. Bird was made temporary chairman. The min utes of last meeting were read and ap proved. On motion of Mr. Cooper the chairmen of the committees appointed by the W. R. C. and the mayor were made vice presidents of the general com mittee. The committee appointed at last meeting to arrange sub-committees and define their duties made report, as signing tbe various committees to their special work, and the report was adopted. The general committee was made com mittee on reception, to wit: Rev. G. W. Grannis, president; Mrs. Jennie Irvine, 1st vice president; Mayor McPhillips, 2d vice president and treasurer; H. S. Ma loney, treasurer, J. C. Cooper, G. A. Prentiss, R. P Bird, Mrs. Wyatt Harris, Mrs. G. W. Keen, Mrs. M. E. Colby, Mrs. M. A. Noll, Prof. Reynolds, Prof. Northup, Elsia Wright and J. ,P. Irvine.

O, together with three other citizens to be named at the next meeting of this com mittee, were made the committee on fi nance. On motiou of G. A.

On motion of J. C, Cooper all sub-committees were in structed to report from time to time to the general committee so that all may work together in harmony for the suc cess of the encampment. On motion of J. C. Cooper the officers of this general committee were made an executive com mittee to consist of five members. On motion of G. A.

The choir window is in memory of the only child of Judge and Mrs. Lucretia Cowls. It bears a likeness of Christ holding scroll with the inscription, “Suf fer little children to come unto me.” Be low this is In memory of MARY COWLS Born Aug. 4, 1865, Died Feb 7, 1868. This window is inlaid with vari-colored pebbles picked up by the child while playing on the ocean beach. At the top of the rolling doors between the auditorium and the lecture room are three windows, one bearing the name of “Frank Abram Powell, Pastor,” another “Bernice and Wanda Nelson,” and a third, “In memory of Mrs. N. A. Hem bree, by W. L. Hembree.” The east windows of the auditorium are four in number, gifts respectively of Mr. and Mrs. C. A. Wallace, Henry Schenk, the builder, Chas. Burgraf, the architect, and Mr. and Mrs. Todd. The first bears the emblem of a sheaf of wheat, the next two, a harp, and the fourth a dove. In the lecture room at the south and east are memorial w indows, the south being that of the C. E’e. It contains the following: “I press toward the mark. Y. P. S. C. E. For Christ and the church.” Ou the east end Mrs. A. J. Warren has a window in memory of her mother, Mrs. Malinda Butler, and Mr. and Mrs. A. J. Nelson have one in memory of their daughter, Alice. The center window is the gift of class No. 9, and is inscribed, “From a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith in Christ Jesus.” The new church will probably be dedi cated during the month of March, in con nection with a aeries of meetings. The seats are now being varnished, and a new carpet is expected to arrive in a few days for the auditorium. One unfortu nate thing about this church is, that the absence of white glass in the windows renders the auditorium very dark, even on a clear day, and something will have to be done to remedy it. 4>biluary. How true : The old must die and the young may die. “Therefore, be ye also ready, for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of Man cometh.” Once more the white-winged angel of death has visited our neighborhood and plucked the sweet little babe who was beloved by all. To see him was to love him. Son of Mr. Charles and Mary E. Taylor. Little Ambery died Feb. 18th, 1899, be ing 8 months and 7 days old. While we realize that his departure is a great loss to father, mother, brothers and sisters, being their first bereavement, we mu«t bow in hnmble submission to the will of Him who is too wise to err and too good to Lie unkind, for we feel assured that the little jewel has changed the sorrows and sufferings of earth for the repose and happiness of heaven. We ex tend to the bereaved family our deepest sympathy, and hope that goodness and mercy may sustain them in their great affliction. W m . M. M. Moore's valley, Feb. 21st. 1899.

II. C. Edgerton, agent at Trion Fat- tory, Ga., for the Chattanooga, Rome & Southern R. R. Co., has written a local citizen here saying that there are several parties in that town who expect to conte to Oregon this summer or early in the fall, and desire information ip regard to laud aud the best place to locate. The party seems to be lookiug for government land to homestead. The letter has been referred to The Reporter. We would say to Mr. Edgertcn concerning vacant public laud in Oregon, that the choicest of it is occupied. The total area of pub lic land in the state unappropriated, un reserved, surveyed and unsurveyed ag gregates 35,897,896 acres, out of a total of 61,626,218 acres in the state. To a resident of a comparatively level state in the east this would sound like it big op portunity for settlement. But it must he remembered that tbe vacant land is for the most part sage brush desert or snow covered and barren mountain land. It it hasn’t this character, it is heavily timbered and precipitous, and not well calculated for farming. Of this thirty- five million acres over 28,000 acres lie in this county and belong to the heavily timbered class. Perhaps the residents of tbe turpentine land of Georgia would lie reasonably satisfied to locate in the midst of dense forests and begin the la-' borious work of clearing a farm, but it should be undertaken with the expecta tion that it would occupy the best of a lifetime. One thing is true about all this unoccupied land in Oregon, where a farmer can get a foothold be has a soil of unsurpassed richness. If it be tim bered mountain land aud he can clear it, the land will be highly productive. The same is true of the desert land if it can be irrigated. The best way to come to Oregon is with a little stake sufficient to buy a farm, large or small, which is al ready improved and ready to bring re turns for the investment. These can al ways lie had at a reason able figure, say front $10 to $100 per acre. That uttei- ance of scripture, “The poor ye have al ways with you,” applies to Oregon as other states, and when we go fishing for immigration we always make it a point to advise the new comer to bring money with him. This will enhance the pros- jierity of the country by making business for the poor we ttlreudy have. The great need of this country is institutions to work up raw products that can be grown here, and thus employ the people and make business. Among these are woolen factories, fruit canneries and driers, creameries, flouring and lumlter mills, tanneries and packinghouses. Nocounty in the state offers greater inducements for capital seeking profitable investment than Yamhill county. THE SCHOOL*. COOK HULDINO. Washington's birthday was oltserved at our school in a neat manner Tuesday afternoon. The 3d, 4th, 5th and 6th grades assembled in Prof. Scott’s room which had been very prettily decorated, and quite an extensive program was given.
