The Children’s Panacea—The Mother’s Friend.
The assertion that “marriage is a failure” would find no acceptance in
the minds of Mr. and Mrs. Lorenzo Root, or their many friends. The
beauty and success of the relation in their ease has been such all the way
up to the 50th milestone, that about sixty of their friends were led to cele
brate the event last Saturday, at their home in this city. The friends
gathered during the afternoon and evening, and an excellent supper was
provided by the visiting ladies. It was the pleasure of the following per
sons to be present:
Rev. Joseph Hoberg anti wife, John Kingery, Mrs. J. E. Noll, Mr. and
Mrs. Cullison, Mrs. Lucy Cowls, J. H. Nelson and wife, F. E. Rogers and

MRS. C. D. NAIRN, Shadeland Farm,
A large silver fruit dish and a gold-lined berry spoon were the hand
some gifts bestowed by the guests. These were presented by Rev. H. T.
Atkinson, the Methodist pastor, whose choice expression of sentiment on
the occasion is the voicing of the heart’s desire of the many persons who
hold Mr. and Mrs. Root in high esteem. Addressing them he said:
I have been asked to say a few words to you in the name of tho friends who
have gathered here upon thia extremely interesting occasion. The fact that so very
few have journeyed over the highway of life as long as you have done, makes it
but natural that great interest should attach to this highly important event in your
lives. I feel that my friends, and yours, have placed upon me an extremely weighty
responsibility in asking me to make tho presentation speech in connection with
this beautiful fruit dish and spoon, which comes from them as a very slight mark
indeed of their respect and affection for yon. That you are together now on this
fiftieth anniversary of your wedding day is evidence that you have been faithful to
each other; for many years yon have been faithful to your God and to your church,
ami today it is our united wish that yon may yet live to see many more years on
earth before the sun of your life shall finally set to rise in the kingdom that has no
end. Take these gifts, then, and may you continue to live until continued use
shall have worn them out, and when that time comes may we also lie living to re
place them with fresh ones.
Both recipients responded briefly, but were so impressed with the
kindly demonstration, that emotion expressed more than words. The en
graving upon the dish was from thy poetical pen of Mrs. H. Mills, and is

The Reporter takes pleasure in presenting the accompanying credita
ble portraits of these worthy people. Lorenzo Root was born in Trumbull

state. Martha Vedder Root was born in Jefferson county, New York,
November 15th, 1829, and removed to Illinois in 1849. She was married
to Lorenzo Root March 3d, 1850, and together they came to Oregon with
an ox team two years later. They settled at Astoria, and remained there
six years before casting their lot in tho favored West Chehalem valley.
Here they tended th°ir flocks and plowed the stubborn glebe until 1879,
when they moved to McMinnville, the immediate jewel of the universe.
Thev have iieen members of the Methodist church for over 50 years, and
have probably fed more preachers at their house, Methodist and otherwise,
than any other of the many households whose latch-string is out to the
men of God. They are worthy of the attention now shown them.
