County Recorder Starr's right

round to their old haunts, the sa

Orphans and the Sick.
In a drive around the eastern part
of town, a Journal reporter noted
that Mr. Dove, a newcomer from
Minnesota, has erected a neat little
house for residence, and his neigh
bor, Mr. Robt, Ashburn, the baker
at the asylum, is building another
for himself and family. In that
neighborhood are young peach trees
proving that this fruit can bo grown
with considerable success in any or
dinary season in the Willamette, al
though it is not its natural home.
H. W. Savage Is fixing up a new
windmill, and adding a hundred
feet to his greenhouse.
The grounds and gardens of the
asylum, orphans' home and private
residences show the richness of the
soil and ability to keep vegetation
green and growing through summer
months when not a drop of rain
falls. Seeing cabbage, squash, beets,
potatoes and corn, fresh nud green,
the writer's companion, a Kansas
man, remarked that with no more
rain there than had here fallen dur
ing the past weeks crops would be
fast drying up. And the papers and
private letters say that tho hot
winds are already cutting down the
crops in some parts of that state
from one-third to one-half, or even
more. No wonder that people there
catch tho western fever, when reli
able word reaches them of the advan
tageous contrast. Bo sure and keep
Tho Orphans' home was visited.
The large, new building has too re
cently been described in these col
umns to need further mention. Un
der Mrs. Dr. Shelton's matronly care
are twelve boys and six girls from
various counties, their ages varying
from three months to thirteen years.
The oldest is a girl one of W. S.
Smith's, the deaf mute. She and
Kitty Miller prove very helpful to
tho matron. The youngest child is
George, a very bright and interest
ing babe of three months, evidently
of intelligent parentage, but sup
posed to be abandoned by both
father and mother, becauso born out
of wedlock. It is tho pet of the
household. Tho child is very sick
of an infantile aliment. Should it
recover it is offered for adoption by
any ono who would satisfy the
ladles' committee that it would have
a good home and be well cared for.
The next call was at Mr. E. N.
Law's. Ho is the gentleman who
met with tho accident to his kneo
at the saw mill. Being a total ab
stainer from all intoxicating liquors,
and in good health, tho wound is
rapidly healing. The only question
is whether the bones will knit so as
to make a stiff joint. As there is no
hope of its ever being fit for use this
is more desirable- than a limber and
useless leg, yielding no support, and
with tho knees always out of place.
Mr. and Mrs. Law show commend
able philosophy, over the event, and
instead of bewailing their misfor
tune speak gratefully of tho kindness
of strangers who, they say, could
not have acted more generously if
they had been old neighbors of a
lifetime. The employes of tho asy
lum were particularly good If any
distinction could bo made In sit
ting up of nights, two at a time
when that was necessary. Salem
certainly keeps up her reputation in
tills direction. Though not a hint
was uttered by them, it is reasonable
to suppose that further help will be
needed and acceptable, for a while,

THE HOME OF TUB T00R.
As nothing has appeared in print
for some time about Marion county's
"home for the poor," perhaps a
sketch of that place would prove In
teresting to at least a few of tho
Considerable credit is duo to tho
present manager, Mr. Illldgc, and
his wife, as they havo proved to bo
the right peoplo in tho right place;
and as the time draws near, when
they go to their own farm, they
must surely leave with a conscience
clear that they havo tried to fulfill
their trust. There havo also been
somo valuable improvements made
during their administration, which
add a much better appearauco to
tho place. There are somo old
gentlemen as Inmates there who
consider it a duty as well as a
pleasure to improvo their home by
clearing up the land and, fitting It
for cultivation. In a few years, if
they are as diligent as they havo
been In the past, Marlon county
will have to Invest in some more
real estate on which to install its
poor, so that tho:o who are able can
help to earn their living. There are
two old gentlemen there who should,
by all means, bo drawing pensions,
having served in tho war for several
years, and received wounds which
disable them from earning their
own living, and it seems a shame
that these old soldiers should die In
tho poor house; but with the aid of
Mr. Illidge, they aro still trying to
obtain their just dues, but havo not
met with success as yet. And there
aro some who aro able to do a littlo
work, if only enough for bodily
exercise, but they prefer "sitting in
tho shade." Mrs. York is tho only
lady inmate there, and as many
know, was deserted by her husband,
then sent to tho asylum, and after
wards taken to tho poor house.
Perhaps some peoplo would say tho
proper place for her is in tho asylum,
as sho is subject to epileptic tits, and
requires constant waching by tho
worthy matron, Mrs. Illldgc.
Besides theso there aro also some
who through sickness and trouble
havo becomo poor, and as they havo
no relatives to support them In
their declining days thoy aro very
unwillingly supported by tho
Perhaps, right hero, it might bo
said that prohibition might prove a
