We are of the opinion that these are the oldest and largest English walnut tree in the State of Oregon, and for many years they have yielded abundant crops. This year is no exception to the rule, and they will yield about twenty bushels of as good nuts as ever came from California. A small quantity of the old crop is still on hand in excellent condition, demon strating that they are good keepers. A few acres set out in English walnuts would be a safe and very profitable in vestment, as their culture has passed the experimental stage and they are demon strated to be a success in Oregon.

The Evening Tlee grarn printed a column concerning the affair last Tuesday, but the gist of it is in this short item, DEATH OF W. C. S00X. W. C.

MOEGDS, Cooper Building, Main '"Of course I would." "Well, you stay." The fact is, Cor telyou, I "don't know how I could get along without yon " And Cortelyou stayed. As the months rolled by, Msxwell was so mnch delighted with the quiet, skill ful, rapid work of hiB secretary that he fell into the habit of boastinz that he had the beat stenographer in the shop. He cracked up Cortelyou till his fame reached the White House and Presi dent Cleveland sent for him. When CorteLvou started in at the White House, it was as a stenographer to the president. He wrote the presi dent's letter. After a day or two, Cor telyou thought it best to offer a little explanation to th. man whose confiden tial work be was doing, and so he said : "Mr. President, perhaps you think I am a Democrat. Cut I ttiiuk it is no more than right I should tell you I am a Republican." "1 don't care a damn what your poli- ftics are," replied Mr. Cleveland, "as long as yon do your work well and are loyal to your chief." Cortelyou was such a good stenograph er and a man so zealous and trustworthy in all his work that President Cleveland kept him and liked him. When 11c Kinley was inaugurated, Cortolyou was there, and became assistant to Secretary Porter. He was the best stenographer and man of business on the Wbite.llonse stuff, and when Porter's health.. broke down, it was the most natural tiling in the world that he should be promoted to the secretaryship. When Boosevelt came in, ol course he kept Cortelyou. Moreover, he stood by the arrangement which McKinley him self had made, and appointed Cortelyou secretary of the Department ol Com merce and Labor. Todav Cortelyou is the center of all eyes the chairman of the Republican National Committe. After the campaign is over he is to take Henry C. Payne's place as pjost uinster general. Thus, in ten years, he will have completed the circuit.
