ALBERT ROLAND PENNICK. – It is said of this gentleman, “He is a rising young man, is respected by all who know him, and takes a decided interest in everything that tends to advance the interests of the town and county.” It also adds that he is unmarried, but owns a comfortable home a quarter of a mile from town. This is as it should be. A bachelor – and he need not be so very old – has no less a privilege of having a home than anyone. Besides his residence, Mr. Pennick owns and runs a grocery store on Main street, has a lumber yard, and conducts an implement house near the depot. This shows him to have an old head on young shoulders, and able to hold a position among the first business men of the city. He is only twenty-two, was born in Edora, Kansas, in 1867, and came to Oregon in 1880, selecting his home at Adams, where he has since resided with the exception of two years spent in attending school in Kansas.
