The death of Mrs. Lucy S. Kaucher, which occurred at her home in this city on Saturday, January 23, 1904, is a distinct los9,not only. to the members of her family and relatives, but to our peo ple, for her life was of that pure and exalted character, and her example was such as to make the loss keenly felt. She was never of (ho rugged kind, and it may be said she was of delicate con stitution, but her wonderful will force and indomitable energy helped her on to face the various struggles incident to our every day life but for the past three years she was an invalid and con stant sufferer, but she bore this suffer ing with meekuess and free from com plaining, that only can be borne by true Cunstian characters. Lucy S Christian was born tn Chi cag . Ills , June 18, 1653, and graduated from the Chicago High school and Nor nial sctiool in 1871. In 1872 she came to t i state ind began her career as a teacher in NoJaway county ,and after wards became one of the most success ful of teachers. She came to Oregon, after teaching a term in Nodaway coun ty, and began her work as a teacher here in 1872-3, under the principalship of Prof. W. F. Drake. She continued as a member of the corps of teachers here for 18 years, teaching in every grade except the Normal, and taught the second primary grade for 12 years, and at tho beginning of her 13th year she was compelled to resigu on account of hr feeble health. She was married to William Kaucher, May 20, 1873. and throe children were born by this union, two of whom, Leah Ethel aud George C, survive. Mr. Kaucher preceded her to the great un known in March, 1903. In addition to th-se who mourn hor loss are four step children, Lawrence, of the railway mail service at St. Joseph; Mrs. Eva Bruner; Mrs. Lillie Clark and Mary, of this city, and two brothers, George Christian, United States Marshal for ihe Southern district of Iowa, residiug at Dee Moines, and W. H., postmaster at Stephenville, Texas. On June 10, 18S7, during tho pastor ate of Rev. J. R. Sassen, she united with the M. E. church, and from that time up to her last illness was a devoted com municant. Next to her family and, in deed, sharing with it her devotion and her work was her church, and her death Corner. east of Oregon on the Kichville road, moms, two barns, corn crib, shds, two into four fields, plenty of orchard of all and church, in a line neighborhood and Forest City, all under fence, dwelling of plenty of fruit, price 3,000 seven miles s mthcast of Oregon, has cistern and out buildings, situated on well as farms not advertised, and it will or country property, as I can usually have any amount of the cheapest kind of Now is the time to arrange for your loans, will pay you to watch Benton's Corner for comes as a loss to that organization. Though of delicate health she was ever cheerful and attracted to herself an unusually large circle of devoted friends. By nature she was very sympathetic. She was interested and assisted largely in charitable work and will long be re membered by the poor to whom her life was a distinctive blessing. Her life was an example of what was best and the cheerfulness and brightness in it was imparted to all about her, and talked of her departure with calm and implicit faith, and selecied the following young men, former pupils, to act as pallbear ers: Guy L. Cummins, Sol. Zachman, Robert Ruley, Carey Bunker, M. R. Martin, Frank Foster, Samuel Schulte and Dr. W. C. Proud. She selected Rev. Henry Crampton to conduct her funeral and her Sunday school class to accompany her body to its last resting place. She eelected the following songs: 'Jesus Lover of My Soul;" "Asleep in Jesus," and named Hebrews 12:1-14 as the text. Closing her requests which were all written by herself was the fol lowing: "Thank the dear friends who have been so good to me, and tell them not to mourn, but rejoice that I am at rest and out of pain; and tell them the blossiugs I have received is worth all the suffering I endured. As a friend, she was true; as a neigh br, kind; tho poor never went empty handed from her; as a wife, devoted; a a mother, noble. Though the golden bowl has been broken, the silver chord loosened, and death has sealed her lips, her influence always for the good, the pure, still lives to cheer and bless all that over came in contact with her pure and noble life. The funeral services were conducted hy Rev. Henry Crampton, now of Al bany, Mo., from the M. E. church on Monday, January 25th, who was as sisted by Rev. A . J. Brock. Letter List.

The bitter fight that began in the county court last October, over the proposition to establish a dram shop at Maitland, had a final contest in the cir cuit court Friday of last week. After a four days' fight in the county ourt.that ourt granted a license to Adolph Lipp m an and Bvrd Foster to keep a dram shop for a year. The remonstrators be ig dissatisfied, kept quiet until the meeting of circuit court, and then took the case to that court, where Judge Elli son held the license void, and revoked the proceedings in the case. Messrs. T. C. and H M. Dungan and R. B. Bridjjeman represented the dramshop i keepers and Ivan Blair the remonstra I tors. At- present the dramshop is closed. The law requires the saloon keeper to give a bond not to sell to minors with out the written consent of the parent. The law provides that the parent may sue on the bond for a sale to a minor. The bond in this case made the saloon keeper liable only when be sold without the consent of the parent. The court held that no one could hare any action on the bond filed, and the public was left entirely without any legal remedy for such sales made to minors, and for that reason the license was annulled.
