HOGU KIVER GLACIER, THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 9, 1005.
CORRESPONDENCE. ODELL. To write of the livluir is easy com oared to the task of recording the life work of the dead. Hut considering the nost of duty tho post of honor. with some missgvings we umlertuke tho sorrowful tuk of furnishing the (Ihicicr renders with the subject of this sketch. John Whitmoro Pluck, who died at Odell lust Thursday morning, Feb ruary at 2 o clock, was a uutive of 'imw. having been bom In Van Kan:, c-rnt''. S"rtenor 1(1, 1K5H, being thus 47 years old at the time of his fit fit ij. The cause of his death was consumption. Although afllicted for inanv vours with thin dread disease. it wits only a few days before his death that, ho became helpless. Hu apt are wodtnd perhaps it is right) to draw the curtain of charity over the Jiff) of tho dead, we almost fear t hat what we are now constrained to nav will lie miHiinderHtood liy your readers. J hit tridy Air. Iilack was i character worthy of more than pas siiiir notice. Ho was a typical South erner tvne of manhood, worthy of udiiiirutioii. Constrained to leave the parental roof in boyhood, never re turning homo, becoming a wanderer and a stranger to his relatives, with out an education, he fought his way at'iiiiiHt inherited tendencies to an eu vieable position In life and why? Ile causo lie always steadfastly adhered to the crowning principle of his lifo, to-wit: A sterling integrity, the ground work of his well rounded life. A strict adherenco to tho principles of justice and fair dealing toward Ids fellows Drought him an abundant har vest. And bravely, without murmur, and unflinching courage he marched triumphantly to deaths door, and was ready for roll cull. During his last hours ut his own request, M. J). OdelJ was called to his lied side and administered spirtual consolation which was gladly accepted, and we now record his last utterance, to-wit: That ho accepted salvation ; and as John W. liiack's word was never ques tioned in life, who shall question his Inst statement before passing out from us nud into that unknown re gion of the land that lies boyond the mystic river of death? Not one of us dare impeach Mr. Iilack, not even when the shadows of death envelop him. What greater tribute could lie paid to t lie memory of a man or what more prcoioiis monument could bo erected over the gruve of a friend than to say understanding fully the meaning of TliUK MANHOOD: "Here lie the body of John W. Iilack, who was a M AN in the fullest sense of tho mean ing of the word. " Man think for a moment and the thought will come to you that there is very much more in this than the mere speaking or writing of the word. John W. Iilack as such a man in the fullest sen. ne of tho word, and while he has tak en his departure from us, yet his mem ory will lie fresh aud green in the hearts of those who know him hero, as was fitly illustrated iu the ritual ist io services conducted by the Odd Fellows of Kemp Lodge ut the ldle wilde cemetery. At his request tho order of Odd Fol lows took charge of his body, and after services at the Union church, laid him to rest at 1 o'clock Fri day after noon, Fobrnary !J, Kemp lodge performing acceptably the last funeral rites at Ills gravo. Laying aside tho pronounced views of theology mid Christianity in his lifo, und rotrosi looting the Jil'o of Mr. Iilack, here, we submit in conclusion this following' question : What tide of tlio unknown future shall sweep his way to drift John W. thick from the ranks of the upright over boyond the raging river of death? Mr. iilack ami Mr. Runcorn had heiiu partner for nearly four yonrs prior to his death, and during this time made his homo with Mr, Kim corn. During all that time and es pecially during tho last days of his illness, Mrs. Runcorn attended him tenderly, and watched by his bedside administering to his wants, so as his days wore drawing to a close lie re quested that in no case should she do sett him. This she did faithfully and willingly as the neighbors can liear witness, and every wish of Mr. Iilack was gratified. (Jouoomitig this Mr. Iilack was satlslled and expressed him self as truly grutillod that he was per mifed to die at borne aud in the presence of those who were dear n 1 PRICED TALSi 1 j t , Tho successful Druggist of tho old school wns niako tho most profit on his goods without driving Tho np-to-dato win a constantly mere-using trade.

Now Hubert is holding the rib bons over the best matched team on the piko. The horse trader is an in teresting character. Invariably both of them get the liest or the trade to the ontire satisfaction of each party interested. This can not always be said of othor traders. POLITICS. Well what is politics? It is my opin- lou that it is a machine upon which the bosses have a patent, and through which they grind out legislation with out any regard for locality or people. It occurs to mo that the patent right Is about to expire, and that the poo- will soon have something to say. liy what right should Senator Mitch ell, Malcolm A. Moody or J. IN. Will iamson have anything to say about the settlementof the affairs of tho Dulles and Hood River? In the language of John L. Sullivan on cigarette smoking we say, : "Chop It on. "(Jut It out.

A good program was rendered, although it was shorter than the week before. The paper was very good. containing an account of the wedding of John Murphy and Salfly )Magundl. After recess, the question box was opened and contained many good live questions. J. O. Cameron discussed the Jayno 1 11 II. This question created a great deal of general discussion, the prevailing opinion lining that the lull is a farce, r. A. Massey was asked to discuss tho local option law, re gar ding the power of a city council to close the saloons, and whether the saloon keepers can collect their rebate immediately if thore be a shortage In the city treasury, or must wait until the money could lie raised by tho legal methods of taxation, Ths also created quite a spirited general dis cussion. Among other questions were some concerning the elfect of the proposed trolley lino to Mount Hood via Troutdalo and Sandy river, ou Hood River; the equity of Chris Dethman's petition to be placed iu Pino (irovo district; tho probable oil'oot on tho Paclllo coast of tho recent cut in freight rates ou immigrant moveables.
