To care for and develop such a ' helpless creature so that at aia turity it can engage in the battle of life, that inevitable struggle for mainlaiuauce, with some pro epect of success. Parental in slinct, in civilized society 'baa been found insufficient, acd the state must step in. .The state does this as a nutter of self pro t te,,A"- ' i ctri-5lu huu per petuation depends on the skill of the people to well do the in numerable things that are acc essary to be done in order that a civilized commuuity can exist. Pjeparatory to acquiring this skill and aptitude much of the knowledge acquired by experi ence and observation by genera tions now dead, and the addi tions made thereto by the matured cf the living generation must be learned, for at birth no one knew anything of the past or present, o the source of food or how it is procured from earth or sea; knew not how to express a thought or make known a de sire in words. What we call science is hut humane experi ence and observation, collected, classified and rendered access able for .ise and transmission. It 'a this human experience aud observation that a modern civilized state finds necessary to render accessable to its youths, and it establishes schools, And colleges where the young may receive the knowledge necessary , to enable them, by practice, to acquire skill and become experts in whatever calling or station selected in. the battle of life. By modern civilization is meant one wherein the iamily, and not the armed regime itja the unit, of state or society. Knowledge, without the skill to apply it, is useless,' but when the two are combined the result is an expert, that is one who knows what ought to be done, and why, and how to do it, to produce a desired result. The experts in any vocation that supplies human wants are knights of modern civilation. It owes its superiority to them; There are many kiiids of meat but we sell onl? the best kind. A trial order will convince you of the truth of this statement. We kill only the best specimens and kill it correciiy v t ... Oar prices are as ,'ow as con jsistent with the best quality.' bectiusa it is their knowledge and skill that enables it to de clare, truthfully, that nene of the epilations of the past ever did so much to render comfort able and pleasant the home life of the masses of men kind women. The 83,000,000 of Americans doff their hats to Sir Knight, Expert for it is to him that they are in debted for the present prosperity of the land and universal abun dance. And when he modestly waives his soil stained hand, not bio Hi y sword, and modestly w ith a feeling of profound pat r iota in says, "No land on earth ever had o many pleasant homes as mine has today", the acclaim of joy and gratitude wells", up from cabin and mansion with a roar the .heroes of battles never heard. It is an evident fact that La GraDde and Cove should con nected by rail. The necessities of the two towns and the inter mediate country are such that nothing short of a railroad, eith er electrical or steam, will longer suffice ..; During the past year or two all sorts of railroad rumors have been afloat, but so far no thing more substantial than , a blueprint rnA i'-ii ed. It is About time that (he people of this valley cease to de pend upon the other fellow, but begin to set up and take notice or themselves. A- railroad across the valley is not such a giant of an undertaking. There certainly enough capital in this valley to finance a little matter of twenty miles of rail road. Once upop a time this city with the aid of a few far sighted farmers subscribed an amount sufficient to secure the ocation In this valley of a sugar factory. When this enterprise was first mentioned, there were those who threw up their hands aud et once branded the plan as foolish as well at impossible, but there were others who real ized what its accomplishment meant to La Grande and Union county and as a result of their efforts the sugar factory wan lo cated here and stands today a monument to the progressive neBS of the citizens of this city and to the business ability of the farmers of this valley." AH that was required to secure the sugar factory was a united effort on the part of the citizens of this city, and a similar effort is all that is necessary to build a road across the valley, If a railroad from La Grande to Cove will pay a pmfit to eastern capital, why would Union county capital not find it equally -profitable? If there is to he any money made in the railroad business in this valley let Union county, men furnish the money and brains and reap whatever there may be of profit. .;' '.
