A notable gathering was that at the resi
dence of Mr. and Mrs. T. li Waldrip, near
Lee Siding Saturday, March I?, in honor of
Mr. Waldrip's father, Jair.es Waldriu—or as
the younp pc >ple love to call him, "Grandpa"
Waldrip whose eighty-second birthday was
(Jrandpa Waldrip ii one of the Kturdy
pioneers who crossed the plains to Oregon in
After a residence of six yearn in that
state he lemoved to Ohehaiis county, Wash
ington, in 1869. He helped to make that
part ol our state to "blossom as the rose."
Mr. Waldrip tells of the time in Chehalis
when the rivers were the sole highways, the
only mode of ingress and caress boing by
canoe. While in Uhehalis, he eer\ed two
terms as county judge. He was also a repre
sentative in the territorial legislature from
(In halis and Mason counties in 1564-65.
Prom western Washington Mr. Waldrip re
moved to Whitman county in 1*73 and set
n the laud now occupied by the fair
grounds, the Waldrip home being just south
<>t where the grand stand now is, and near
the spring.
While in Whitman county Mr. Waldrip
-• rved one term as county judge—the second
judge ever ducted in Whitman. Later he

to Muthern California, where he resided until
in mere recent years he has been a resident of
Mexico. Last June Mr. and Mrs. Waldrip
came to visit their eldest son, T. K. Waldrip,
and are still here.
In a happy way Grandpa Waldrip relates
the lively times of Jackson's administration;
of the prompt action of "Old Hickory," when
nullification was the all-absorbing topic in
South Carolina,and later of the furore created
by Jackson's veto of the bill re-chartering the
United States bank.
Mr. Waldrip is hale and hearty, and both
he and his wife take a great interest in the
rapid stride-; of p-ogress in our own state, aa
well as the latest dispatches from the war in
the Trail-\ aal.
