}i ! iiii:!! O MRS, ORPHA COCHRAHE PASSES TO HEFI REWARD Taken Sick and Dios in a Pew Min- utes--Homesteaded Near Harvard. The sad news of the sudden and untimely death of Mrs. Orpha Coch- rane, which occurred at Moscow on the evening of October 20, came as a great shock to the people of this com- munity, where Mrs. Cochrane had spen, t ahnost her entire life since the days of her early girlhood. Orpha Chambers was a daughter of Samuel T. and Johnannah Chambers, early day pioneers of Latah county, and was born at Edwards Ford, Indiana, December 1, 1869. The family came west by oxteam in 1872, locating near Elberton, %*ashington, where they re- sided for a time, coming to the upper Palouse in 1884. They homesteaded a. quarter section of land on the flt~t three miles west of Harvard, which still carries the family name. At al time when this part of the countryi I was little more than a wilderness antiI settlers were few and far between and good roads were unknown. Mrs. Cochrane saw this community rise from its earlist settlement to its pres- ent advanced state. She was united in marriage to George T. Cochrane, who lived on an adjoining homestead, on May 8, 1890. Mr. Cochrane passed away May 17, 1915, and was laid to rest in the cem- etery at Freeze. Mrs. Coehrane eon- tlnued the management of the farm up till a little over a year ago, when, desiring to further the education of her two daughters, Vina and Mary, she leased the farm to her son, Eu- gene, ~and moved to .~oscow, where she has since resided. To all al)pear- ances in her usual health Thursday evening she started front her home on East Eighth street, with her two (laughters, to attend t~e U. of I. foot- ball rally. On reaching Marion street she was taken with an attack of diz- ziness and went into t,'he R. Medlock home for a rest before continuing on her way. Dr. Gritman was called, but her case was hopeless and in less than 20 minutes from the appearance of the attack Mrs. Coehrane had crossed the great divide and joined the hosts on the other side. The remains were brought to the old home on Chambers Flat Monday and on Tuesday were taRen to the cemetery at Freeze, where they were gridiron Friday afternoon, the score being 40 to 7. Mr. and Mrs. J. G. Witt expect to leave Saturday, October 29, for their new home in Seattle. 51r. Witt has )een for the past 12 years master me- chanic of the W., I. & 51. railroad at Potlatch, and (luring their long rest-. dence here they have made many friends who regret their departure. Mrs. Witt has been t~ze guest of honor at a number of social affairs since they have announced their decision to leave here. Born to Mr. and Mrs. Arthur Oli- ver, on October 23, a 12-pound boy. L. E.

A firm believer In Christianity, she en- deavored to live up to her beliefs. In sickness or distress she was eeer ready to lend a helping hand. A neighbor when a neighbor was need- ed. By her quiet, gentle ways she won the esteem of all whom she met and her taking away will be felt as a severe loss by all. The long string of automobiles loaded with relatives and friends which followed the remains to their last resting place, together with the large number of wreaths and boquets of flowers, showed the high regard in which she was held in a community where she had resided almost con- stantly for 37 years. Mrs. Cochrane is survived by two daughters, Vina and Mary, who have been at(on(ling school at Moscow, four sons, James A. and Eugene, of Chambers Flat, and Clyde W. and Homer L., of Carstairs, Alberta; one sister, Mrs. Corinne Bay, of Harvard, and three brothers, Eudoris and Jos- eph, of Reubens, Idaho, and Ulysses of Fort George, B.
