[ day morning. July 29, 1900, of cardiaci

Freewill Baptist church. In 1832 the
family moved to Moscow, New York

was at Moscow that Mr. Harding’s school
days were spent, and where in 1839 he
commenced learning tbe shoemaker's
trade. In December, 1840, he was
married to Miss Martha Porter, who died

diana ill 1870, and from there to Oregon
in 1877, locating in McMinnville. In
this city Mr. Harding opened a shoe

a familiar figure here. In 1892 be mar

Mr. Harding’s lot was cast in the hum
ble walks of life; lie wars a man among
men; held strong convictions along re

the theory that anything that is worth
doing is worth doing well. He was not
of a disposition to accumulate much
property, prefering to enjoy his earnings

He was a kind hus

A scientific explanation of the cut worm
pest and a remedy for its destruction is
given in the Pacific Homestead by Pro
fessor F. M. MeElfresh, assistant ento
mologist of the Corvallis Agricultural col
lege, who says: “The pest is one of the
many cutworms, but which one we can
not determine until we have reared the
moth. Reports have been received from
a large number of points throughout the
Willamette valley calling our attention
to the same pest, which has been report
ed as doing serious damage to grass, clo
ver and vegetables, as turnips, cabbages
and potatoes; in addition, we have found
the eggs on apple trees and the larva-
are thriving on apple and maple leaves.
The 6ame remedies will apply to all cut
worms. The best is to spriukle the in
fested fields with a pnris green mixture,
using about one pound of pariB green to
100 gallons of water, and one or two
pounds of freshly slacked lime will aid in
holding the poison on the vegetation.
Uninfected fields may be protected by
sprinkling a narrow strip around the out
side of tbe field Persons who have small
garden and no spraying or sprinkling
apparatus may sprinkle their vegetation
by using a small broom of some sort. A
less satisfactory method is to use poison
traps. Take fresh food, as clover or grass,
and dip it iu tbe poison mixture and
place about the garden in heaps large
enough to hold moisture and keep ma
terial green. Another method is to spriu
kle the dry powdered purls green over
the plants, using about one part paris
green to loO parts air-slacked lime. Clean
culture and extremely late fall plowing
will no doubt destroy a large number of
the pests, but careless neigt.l>ors will
help to keep down lieneficial results.”

Wnn the sigasture of C raw . H PLsrcan,
Mrs. A. S. Duniway, the famous wom
an suffrage advocate of this state, was
recently asked by a representative of the
Ashland Tidings the following question,
to which was given the following reply :
“Are you going ahead with the suffrage
work in the face of your late defeat?”
“Why shouldn’t we? We werenotde-
feated. We were whipped by the valid
vote of Portland’s Whitechapel district,
and” she added with a sigh, “by the Ore
gonian, which stirred it up. We got two-
thirds of the counties of the state, includ
ing Yamhill and Lake, which paired, as
they say in congress; and over 4,000 votes
in the decent wards of Multnomah. We’ll
know how to checkmate Whitechapel
next time. We have made gratifying
progress. The total sum of the yes vote
was only 11,233 in 1884. The no vote of
that year was 28,176. The yes vote of
1900 was 26,265, being an increase over
the former vote of 15,032, while the no
vote of 1900 was 28,402, being only an in
crease of 266 votes, to our more than 15,-
000. I still believe iu the chivalry aud
patriotism of good men; and though Ore
gon has lost her opportunity to lead our
cause to victory in this closing year of
the century, she will be redeemed, as I
verily believe, by the many votes of 1904.
The wotld is marching on.”
Fourth Quarterly I'onterence.
The fourth quarterly conference of the

ence are especially urged to attend with

the sermon will be preached by Dr. Wat.
ters and will be followed by the admin
istration of the sacrament of the Lord's
supper. In the evening the pastor will
preach as usual, his theme for that occa
sion being "The Christian Idea of Liber
ty.’’ Everybody is cordially invited to
attend these services.
To My Patrons mid Frlenda.
Iu retiring from my business I desire
to express my appreciation and sincere
thanks for past patronage and favors
and pleasant relationship during the
eighteen years of business intercourse in
this community. And I trust the public
will continue to confer the same patron
age to my successors, Messrs. Scott &
Williams,with which I have been favored
in the past. All bills and accounts con
tracted prior to August 1st are due and
will be collected by me. All claims and
accounts held against me prior to Aug

Cnlitornia f oiisollilated Petroleum
This is an age of consolidation and the
California Consolidated Petroleum Com
pany is born of this successful principle.
The “ten-cent” oil companies are of few
days and full of trouble. They must
strike oil in their first wells or burst, for
with their money gone in a dry bole
their stock is killed
If they survive
they w ill be swallowed up by the Cali
fornia Consolidated or the Standard, for
such is the history of the oil business.
There isoDly room for two oil concerns
like the California Consolidated and the
Standard on the Pacific coast. These two
giants will inevitably control the oil busi
ness of California, and it is those wise
enough to see this who are buying the
stock of the California Consolidated Pe
troleum Company, which stock is likely,
ere long, to make its holders rich. Al
ready the stocks of a few other oil com
panies, brought at a nominal figure, are
worth on the market several hundred
dollars per share, and the time is not
distant when a small block of thia stock
may mean a competence to the fortunate
owner. Certain it is that the present
price will soon tro doubled, and those de
siring non-axsessable oil stock in a solid
company, backed bv solid men, will do
well lo carefully read the company’s ad.
