W, Cummin ha liecn u cltlicn of Ore--.ton anil It Immediate vicinity, He so lived that he posses to the other side greatly esteemed and beloved liy all who came in touch with him. whether In business, religious, social or politi cal life. He never enred for pomp or llpluy ho ever preferted the simple life. Ill attachment, to friend was so lieautlful as to make one's life wortli Its living especially was thli keenly j-een In hi comradeship with number of the (i. A. It. In hi every relation of life Mr. Cummin wa absolutely reliable; thtre win no ternlng to the right or left; he never dodged; he ceo. W. CUMMIN'S. knit to the very line of hi even- oh llgntion, and when he promised It was us good a kept. In hi obligation no :i citizen fur lie seemed guided by the thought that every citizen should feel obligated to do hi palt to the community In which ho lied, to keep it development. religiously, education. ully, commercially ami in mi .ur, Oinmiln did hi nart to it fullno, Whenever railed he answered, and Im gave those dutle the very Ik-hI. For many yur he wived a a member of our school board, ami aio u u nnui lier of our rltv council. In the every day BlTultn of life he so simple anil sincere; hi word was only needed, and one routed absolutely secure that that word would be kept. Ho wa so up pronchable that one wan not embar rassed In the leat In their Intel course with him. HI pcrsonnl pledge In every relation of life were golden. While Mr. Cummin' death, which occurred Thurday evenlnir, July 4, t'118. wan not unoxnectod. for ho had been a sufferer for many month, yet every heart In our community wa saddened by the announcement thfl community hoped and prayed that thU kindly gentleman would bo spared to us, but the summon came, and with heart filled with deepest sorrow we howed to the Inevitable. How fitting, too. that the nasslni; of this old veteran should come on tho nation' nnnlvors nry. to which he gave much and mnde huch sacrifices, that It was possible for the nation to livo and still celebrate It freedom: that ho had lived to sec the day celebrated in England.

So loyal, so faithful and so truo to each and every ono of them. Take him for all In all George Wash Ingtim Cummins was u man among men, and his deatli has brought deep sorrow Into every home, for they feel tho loss of such kingly men, and feel the needs of their staying.
