Among the gifts the most common ones
are ambition, the solving of the personal
equation,, cheerfulness:, , enthusiasm and
the Christian life. After reminding the
students of the gifts that always existed,
he told them how they could make their
gifts burn blighter and add to their
power and Influence in the world, by
their own efforts. By coming in contact
with great men and women, by reading,
by earnest meditation, they could be
brought into prominence and assist the
individual in making himself felt in the
The us-e of the many gifts were ex
plained very minutely. He told how con
ditions throughout the world are bettered
from one decade to another, and, while
the many colleges turn out hundreds and
hundreds of young men and women to
meet these conditions, the demand will
never exceed the supply, for the reason
that the ladder of fame keeps growing
higher and higher with the increase of
climbers. He also admonished ths stu
dents that the college education wae
within the reach of everyone, no matter
what the financial ' conditions of that
person is, and if the individual would
only make the best of his or her course.
thre would never be a worthless waste
of money in securing an education, no
matter how many graduates there are.
He concluded his address by comparing
the modern life with the old Grecian race
track. ' On that track were always three
pillars, on the first being written "Show
yourself a man," and still further on,
where the runnere were likely to fagg
and fall behind, was a flag saying "Do
your best. Make haste," and at the finish
the pillar said "Stop here."
Mr. Hayes modernized the famous race
course by placing at the first post the
American flag. The red symbolizing
"Blood paid for our freedom." The white
"Pure life and citizenship," and the blue
as "Hope." Figurative runners should
use the flag as a standard to which their
manhood and defense of the country
should be raised. At the half way he
laid the Bible. Here, at the time of
doubt the runner should refer to the word
of God for aid and direction and inspira
tion. Then at the finish we should set
Christ as a model. He should be the
laurel and the prize of this life over and
above all other things, and the inspira
tion for us to do our best.

interest In Mount Hood for the past gener-J
ation is well known throughout the state, -and
t feel that a word from me will not'
be out of place at this time, 1 do not
know who is interested In this proposition,
hence, I can speak without personal feel
mg in tne matter. :-;., - X' -
It is currently reported that a combi
nation of some sort has boen formed, for .
the purpose of selling this property to the.,,
state for the price named, and an option .
taken on it for $3000, As to the corroecU
neev of this rport I cannot vouch, but t
have reason to say it does not much ex
ceed that fifure. Sixteen thousaud dol'ara
seems like a pretty good margin for pri
vate Individuals to make on a little $24, .
000 sale to the state. Particularly is
this true when the fact is considered that
for many year ther has been bitter op
position in the legislature against main
taining or in any manner improving state
roads, and for this reason they have new
tnar oeen built, nor . purchased. It will
require many thousands of dollar to put
this road in first-class condition. ; Undef
such circumstances, where Is ths rnonev
to com from.
Inquisitive persons may raise the quss-;
tion a to what i offered for this money;
Has the road company any rights or priv
ileges that are not conferred by the stat
or county through lease? The company .
never purchased the road, did not build.
and do not own it. Then what 1 off
ered for sale? If a lease is held, when
nd from whom was it obtained, and when
does it expire? It extends principally
through the Cascade Range forest reserve.
On page 62, '"National Forest Rueerv
Regulations and Instructions," the follow
ing languag occurs;,' "Reg.r 48. Wagon
roads and trails may to constructed, :
changed, widened, extended, or repaired
upon forest reserve lands whan needed,
but permit or right of way must first be
secured. Permits will not give the right
to exclusive use or to charge ' toll, or
against future disposal ot the land by the.
