Independence, Oregon, Friday, October 19, 1917
A Kansas German in bidding" his son goodbye
when the latter was leaving" to join the U. S. army
said: 'My boy, after you have whipped the Ger
mans,stop off in Mecklenburg (Germany) and look
up the folks." Here was a man whose father,
mother, sisters and brothers all lived in Germany.
There was a time most probably, as between Ger
many and England, he hoped and pra) ed for the
Germans to win; but when his own country en
tered the fray his sympathies no longer were with
the home of his people and he cheerfully sends
forth his son to fight perhaps his own flesh and
blood. This is a crisis that thousands of Germans
in tnis country naa to meet ana in most ail cases
they met it loyally and unflinchingly. They carry
two burdens in this war; the one common to al
and the other a feeling of pity for their kin across
the seas who by circumstances are obliged to be
the tools and slaves of a blood-thirsty tyrant. It
should give them some relief to realize that
America has no quarrel with the German people
(our president has so said) and this war will be
the means of freeing the Germans in Germany
from the yoke of oppression.

A mystery what propels the hands of a clock
in a bank at Woodburn has had them guessing,
but last week a man of science butted in with
this explanation:
"There are no pendulous oscillations
cognizable, but the elongated indicators
of aluminum construction perambulate a
circumscribed radius with a circumfer
ential activity, thereby' registering accu
rately the subdivisions of its circumfer
ence. The energizingimpulse neccessary
to accomplish, the resultant activity is not
sufficiently accelerated to destroy the
molecular cohesion of its atomic constitu
ents. Its syncronizatiou is promulgated
by the dissemination of actinic rays, and
the nocturnal and diurnal deflections are
equalized by contraction and expansion."
Woodburn has two mysteries now whereas it
had one before. What makes the clock go and
what the scientist says makes the clock go

condemned as being unsafe for traffic, has been
repaired and is now in use again. Under the cir

taxpayer. It it was possible to repair the old
bridge this year and use it, why wasn't it possible
to do the same thing last year and save all the
expense and inconvenience of maintaining
ferry? Then again if the old bridge conld be re
paired and used, why was it not done and the
letting of a contract for a new bridge postponed
until such a time when prices on bridge materials
would be lower so a big saving in cost could be
made? Verily, 'tis a conundrum that we do not
attempt to solve.
