Hon. John Hippie Mitchell, Senator
in Congress from the State of Otegon,
died at hia home in Portland, that
state, on Friday last. December 8, 1905.
in the 71st year of his age.
The fact that Senator Mitchell was a
former citizen of Bntler makes every
thing concerning him of interest to our
people. It was from this place he went
west. He was born in Washington
county, this state, in Jane 1835, but
came to Butler county with his
parents when quite young, about 1836-7.
His father, John Hippie, purchased a
farm between Mount Chestnut and
Prospect, this county, and lived on
same until his death some years ago
Here his son John M. Hippie was raised,
and lived until he came to Bntler. about
1856. He entered the law office of
Samuel A. Purviance and John M.
Thompson us a student, and was ad
mitted to the Butler Bar on March 23d,
1858. Mr. Pnrviance being elected to
Congress, and Mr. Thompson soon
lifter, to the Legislature, left young
Hippie alone in charge of their office,
an opportunity which he improved with
ability. He was regarded as a young
lawyer of talent and eloquence and was
favorablv known. But in 1860 he left
here for "the west, settling in Portland,
Oregon, as his new home. He left a
wife from whom he was afterwards
divorced. At Portland he rapidly rose
in his profession being soon chosen city
solicitor of that place, and then a State (
Senator, and then a United States
Senator by the legislature of Oregon.
All this took place within ten years
after his landing in Oregon. In the
meantime he thought it proper to
change his name from that ot John M.
Hippie, ns he was known here, to that
of John Hippie Mitchell, the Mitchell,
his middle name, being that of his
mother before marriage The Oregon
Legislature we are told subsequently
continued this change of name. He
married again in Oregon and his present
wife and two daughters made a journey
to Europe some time ago and are at
present in Paris, France.
Mr. Mitchell's first election to the
United States Senate was as we have
stated about the year 1870. He was
subsequently re-elected to the same high
post at least twice, and again in lUUI.
and was filling that office at the time of
his death. During his service in the
Senate no Butler man who visited
Washington would fail to meet a warm
greeting from Senator Mitchell. For
his old friends who knew him here as
John M. Hippie, he had a particular re
gard and would serve them in any way
he could. That he was a generous,
warm hearted man was known, and
while we do not desire or intend to ex
cuse his faults or in any way to palliate
his offenses, either public or private,
yet there were none of his old acquaint
ances hero but regretted to learn of his
dea»h and felt sad at the unfortunate
circumstances under which it bad oc
curred. There is a lesson in his life to
be learned by all, but particularly by
young men. He haa left, living in this
and adjoining countieH. good and re
spectable relatives and friends.

EXPLANATION Modern business methods made it necessary for these manufacturers to dispose of their samples when their travelers 5
finished taking the season's orders. To do so at one time meant a i>ig reduction from the regular prices—a direct loss. However, the up-to- M
date manufacturer must encounter these losses, it's considered good business judgment. The big saving we have made Ls now at your mercy, g
These goods are not odds and ends, but fresh and late samples. We would refuse to sell any article which does not come up to the standard V
required by the high reputation of our establishment. 2
