Let Us Be Your Watchman
To some extent the impression prevails
that almost anybody can "fix a watch,”
and many only learn by costly experi
ence that it is not so. The tinker, the
natural born mechanic, the genius who
can “fix anything,” finds himself at sea
when he tackles a fine watch, for the ad
justment to positions and isochronism
requires something besides mechanical
skill. There is no minute detail with
which we are not familiar in the mechan
ical and mathematical adjustment of a

Wrath of .Hr. Barnhart.
The announcement of the sudden and
severe illness of Mr. Barnhart of the
Sheridan Sun was made in The Report
er last week. Death came to the relief
of this brave and good man on last Sun
day morning, shortly after 9 o'clock.
Francis Henry Barnhart was born
April 18th, 1849, in Chautauqua county,
N. V., on the banks of that beautiful
lake of the same name, whieh has
since become nationally familiar as the
yearly meeting place of that great body
of students known as the "Chautauqua
Literary and Scientific Circle." The love
for the beauties of nature instilled in his
youthful mind at this place, remained
with him through life.
While yet in
boyhood he went to Iowa on his own re
sources, and at Muscatine learned the

For his family and myself I wish to
say from a heart warm with gratitude,
that there comes never another time in
the life of any of us when the kindly
offices of friends are so strongly felt, or
our inability to repay so surely made ap
parent. The presence at the service of
the splendid body of friends from both
McMinnville and Sheridan attested the
esteem in which Mr. Barnhart was held,
and as surely impressed his family with
their noble love aud sympathy.
