James Jordan died at his home in the town of Thorp, Clark county, near this city on Monday night, September 30, after a lingering illness. His death was not unexpected as he was suffering from a fatal malady. He was about 60 years of age and one of the pioneer residents of this locality. He was born at Elm Grove, Wis. in 1853. He was married to Emma Warner, Elroy in 1874 and settled on the farm where he died, in 1877. Indeed, we have met few people who claimed to have been residents of the Stanley Country when "Jim" Jordan came. It is believed that he settled here about 35 years ago and with his faithful wife who survives him reared a family of 14 children, 12 of whom survive, as follows: Mrs. Lottie Palmer, Oregon City, Ore.; Mrs. Rose Timlin, Thorp; Mrs. Len Hutchins, Randle, Wash.; Mrs. John Techmeier, Thorp; Mrs. E G. Erdman, Stanley; Michael Jordan, Stanley; Mrs. Wm. Calkikns, Stanley; and Emma, Eva, James, Tom and William at home. His funeral was conducted from St. Mary's church on Thursday and his mortal remains were interred in St. Mary's cemetery.

Mr. Jordan was a good neighbor, a genial and whole hearted companion, a kind and indulgent husband and father.
