The Blow process or rewarding those
who did service when a state or a na
tlon in time of need Is regrettable In
deed, but It la better, that compensa
tion come late than never. This is true
of J. Q. A. Richardson of Alice! who
last Friday received a check from the
atate of Washington for services Mr.
Richardson performed in the Indian
wars of 1856 at Walla Walla.
This transaction becomes .doubjy
Interesting after one has talked with
the old gray haired veteran who ex
perienced tortures and hardships in
the early daya that the northwest
might be a place for the white men to
peacefully live. He not only helped
.fight the Indians but later on lie devel
oped land and made a home In the
Grande Ronde valley,, which place he
loves with a fondness "that is admirable.-,.'.
In speaking of the claim recently
pald hlra hesald to the Observer: "Yes
I was glad to get the, money. . I was
entitled to it, but at the same time
I did nothing more than my duty. Any
loyal American would have Joined in
lighting for home and -country 'against
the redskins In those days. It was a
case of the survival of the fittest and
to tell the truth there was nothing
much to do but fight or seek a hiding
place and some way I never was built
on the hiding plan.. One thing I weld
Ilka to impress oh the 'people of toi
day and that is the importance of fly
ing the American flag once in a wh'l.,
4s a nation we are losing our patriot
Ism; we are failing to teach it to th?
rising generation as we should and
this lethargy, too, is appearing before
we old fellows have shuffled off the
,stage of action. Too bad, too bad. Don't
ydu know right here in thi Grande
Ronde valley opposite Mr. Emily a
battle was fought on July 17, lSSC. I
was not in that battle tut I want to
say to you there was some fighting
done. , I was In ths Walla Walla
country at that time, but for the sake
of the boys who did fight In the Grande
Ronde and fof the sake of our country
every school house and public build
ing In the valley Bhould fly the Ameri
can flag on the ICth day of July every
year. Walla Walla should also fly the
flag on the anniversary of their Indian
baitea. I would show the right epirlt-"
There is little doubt that Mr. Rich
ardson is righln his claim that pat
riotism is bJng permitted to drift in
this country.' Too little attention is
pad the old men who fought when this
country needed fighters and had to
have them. If things continue as they
are at present tha next generation will
know little and care less about teh
wars which meant so much to this na
tion. -. ' - -
The two county publicity campaign
that is fast taking shape In Union and
Wallowa countlef will be materially
assisted by Hot Lake. . This has been
assured by Senator Pierce and the as
surance is sufficient to make every
one know the fact Hot Lake is a great
big magnificent institution located al
most in the suburbs of La Grande.
Its pay roll should be included in La
Grande's resources for the people who
are working there know no other city
but th's. Thi institution is closely
Interwowi and allied with La Granue
that h J iee'.irg o: loyalty to tha tmh
torium can easily be accounted fnr.
There will be tfneftys derlvv'l from
the publicity riven the two counties
and Hot Lai;a will reap her share of
the basing j, ljut so will min' othe
lpBtitu'oii, tt:r this certain! is wt
to be dwelt upon at length. The fac:
that Senator Pierce, without the lais
Hesitation, came to me center auu
said, "You bet, boys, I am In on any
thing that will tend to benefit JJnlon
or Wallowa county and you can de
pend upon the Lake doing its share"
carried a meaning which all can un
derstand amounts to loyal personal
support as well as .financial support
to the movement. r,
Singing Cliff In the Pyrenees and
Roaring Sends In Hawaii.
In certain parts of the world are
mountains and hills which are 6a Id by
the natives to sing." lu the Pyrenees
certain cliffs emit plaintive sounds re
sembling the strains of u harp. Two
other cliffs In the same chalu are called
the "snorers." When 'the wind is in
the southwest they wild forth a pe
culiar sound not altogether musical.
The faces of these cliffs are marked
by deep gullies, open lu front, which
nrty he compared to' the pipes of an
orami. At i crrnln tiniest n stratum of
air, held l eiiveeu t!s rll.r and border

At the conttueme of the Orinoco and
flip Klu MeU are praulte clUV which
sing "itt stinrlsi'. llnmlioldt refers to
the phenomenon as the musical stones
of tire Orinoco. The music is caused by
the rush of the expanding air through
fissures partly closed by mien.
Many more examples miht' be cited
to show that nature makes use of prin
ciples which have been adopted . by
man In the creation of musical sounds.
Nor are the musical sounds of nature
confined to rocks, mountains and hills,
for in Hawaii Is a sand bauk fifty feet
high which.' when the hand Is moved
about in the loon urt. produces a
soun1 like thru of n inelodeon. It Is

Crow Quills Make the Best Pens.
A quill Deumnker says that no pen will
do as fine writing as the crow quill.
It reouires the nsRlstance of a micro
scope to make a proper pen out of such I
a quill, but when mode it Is of won- j
derful delicacy. The microscopic writ
ing told of In books of literary curios
ities was all done with a crow qutll.
The steel pens of the present hare
very fine points, but somehow a finer
point can be given to a quill than ban
ever been put on a steel pen, and for
delicacy nothing can equal It.
