Arriving in 1886, he bought a band of sheep, but becoming disgusted with the strife between the cattle and sheep men sold out. After teaching school in Gilliam county for a short time, he had charge of the Fossil Journal for a year, when he moved to Wasco, buying the Observer, and ran it until 1891. While teaching school he turned to reading law, and while editing the paper, was grounding himself in the principles which must be familiar to one who appears before the courts as an advocate and representative of another's inter ests. Admitted in 1891, he moved to Moro, the county seat, and has established a large clientage. Five years ago he married Miss Minnie Gilkeson, of Doug las county, and has one child, a daughter.

Born in Germany in 1837, he came to this country with his parents when he was eight years old. They re mained two years in New York, moving then to Virginia. Young John, however, received his education in New York, remaining there until he graduated, then returning to assist the old folks on their farm. In 18G5 he went to Missouri, spending five years there, tilling the soil, then returning to the "Old Dominion," he took up a farm near the old home stead, and stayed there until 1881.

Not only was there a beautiful level val ley, with an abundance of water, but also worlds of grass for miles and miles in every direction. The Doctor located a homestead upon the quarter section they were camped upon and the others of the party took homesteads adjoin ing thereto.

Whenever a railroad is extended through the county it cannot help but go through this place, as the advantages she enjoys both as to water supply, natural location, and the immense trade from southern cities passing through will make it the best town in time in the county. Grass Valley can boast of the best school privileges in the county, as she has located in her midst the Baptist Academy, a fine two-story- building, and also a good two story district schoo building, where a graded schoo is run and it ranks as the second district in the county for schol ars of school age.

46 ST. TAUL'S EPISCOPAL CHURCH. Very little is known of the early history of the church in The Dalles. Some of the oldest residents remember visits from the Rt. Rev. Thos. P. Scott, D. D., Rev. H. M. Fack ler, D. D., Dr. McCarthy, Dr. Stow, Dr. Xevius, and others. A child of the Hon. J. K. Kelly was baptized by Dr. Fack ler, D. D., in 1806, and in 1871 Rev. R. D. Xevius held two services in the Congregational church, through the cour tesy of Rev. T. Condon, the pastor. From 1871 to 1873 four services were held by Rev. R. D. Xevius, one by Bish op Morris, and one or two others by Rev. L. H. "Wells. At this time there were found ten communicants of the church, and Dr. Xevius baptized four adult persons in the Congregational church. With this as a nucleus, a congrega tion was established and an effort made to build a church. In 1874 Rt. Rev. Bishop Morris gave $500 towards it on con dition that a like sum should be raised in The Dalles. This work was undertaken by Mrs. G. H. Knaggs, an...

For many years animals were pastured the year round, the luxuriant growth of natural grass being sufficient to furnish them feed both winter and summer, but as flocks and herds in creased it became necessary to provide artificial feed for the winter months, and in consequence thous ands of tons of hay are put up each year in the stock coun try as a safeguard against severe storms and deep snows. While wheat raising is the leading industry of the county at present, sheep and cattle come next, and are the source of bringing a vast amount of money into the country each year. This year there were over 20,000 head of mutton sheep sold in the county and some 2,000 head of beef, while the assessment roll shows there were 6,583 cattle and 123, 529 sheep owned in the county on the 1st day of March last.

THE DALLES TIMES-MOUNTAINEER. 3 C Lin ATE AND SOIL. By B. S. Pague. Oregon is traversed, north and south, by the Cascade mountains, which divides the state into geographical, as well as into climatic parts. About two-thirds of the state lie east of the mountains, and it has a climate of a semi arid nature. To the west of the mountains the climate is moist, with comparatively small temperature changes. The Columbia and tributary rivers drain the eastern portion of the state, and where the river cuts through the Cascade mountains is where Wasco county begins, extend ing eastward along the Columbia river, then joined by Sherman county. These counties extend southward from the Columbia river a distance of about 60 miles. These two counties comprise the extreme northwestern portion of Oregon east of the Cascades, termed Eastern Oregon or the Inland Empire. TOPOGRAPHY. The counties are in general rolling in surface. The snow capped summit of Mount Hood forms a portion of the west ern boun...

The Dalles was the key to the entire country east of the Cas cades, and Lee perceiving this used his best endeavors to establish a permanent American settlement, that would grow into and become a city witn the development of the country. In August, 1847, the Methodists transferred the mission to Dr. Marcus Whitman, who was a missionary of the Presbyterian Missionary Society, better known as the American Board. Whitman, and his coadjutors of the American Board were doing the greater portion of the mis sionary work east of the Cascade mountains, and the Dalles station was an important one to them. The Metho dists were mostly occupied in the Willamette valley, where they had more work to contend with than they could do justice to. As an act of Christian regard, the mission was - transferred to...

At first, and for a considerable time the military authorities at the fort exercised exclusive jurisdiction; but in the course of time with the organization of town and county governments, they gave way to the civil power.
