Corvallis A Eastern
spect to the motherhood of the
world. Once the idea is grasped,
it can but gather popularity, for
its appeal is to all men to all
women" and all children. It
merely means that the world in
its nervous rush of business
shall give thought, upon one
day in the year as honor to the
mothers that are gone, and as a
token of love to living mothers.
Upon that day, as the thought
is elaborated, , the mother at
home'shbuld be made , conscious
of the world honor paid to her
maternity by such appreciative
acts as usually mark the day of
special observance, and the
mother at a distance' should
have her heart gladdened by a
"love letter," as suggested by
Miss Jarvis, or at least by an
appropriate greeting of some
sort, by wire or mail or phone.
The observance of a day like
this makes for the strengthening
of the home spirit; and it is a
spirit that needs strengthening
in this day and age. : Simple as
it is, it is a movement worthy
the official attention of govern
ors and mayors and all manner
of societies, and of every indi
vidual who honors the memory
of a mother dead, or loves a liv
ing mother.

UNCLE REMUS' PROPHECY.
TRIBUTE TO MOTHERS.
It has been suggested that the
Ladies' Auxiliary to the Com
mercial Club have a day de
voted to the mothers of the city
and in this connection the fol
lowing tril ute to mothers from
the Portland Telegram is 'well
worthy of reproduction and cer
tainly entitled to the considera
tion of every person:
"Mothers' Day!" We have
Christinas Day and Thanksgiv
ing Day and Labor Day and Ar
bor Day and numerous other
days, which we observe and cele
brate, for one purpose or an
other. Miss Annie Jarvis. of
Philadelphia, urges that another
-day of universal celebration be
-added to the list "Mothers'
Day."
The movement was launched
some three years ago. The
thought originated in the de
sire of an appreciative daughter
to commemorate the anniver
sary of her mother's death. The
wearing of a white flower on the
second Sunday in May was sug
gested as a simple tribute to
mothers of the land, living or
dead a tribute' that denotes
purity. The thought was given
; publicity; and Miss Jaivis is
now earnestly engaged in its
. further propagation. In this
connection, The Telegram is in-
Julian Harris, son of Joel
Chandler Harris, is now editor
of Uncle Remus' Magazine. In
the March number he comments
on the proposed division of
political opinion in his section
under the caption "Shall the
SolM South Be Shattered?" He
say(bhat the "Solid South" is
no llsfnger a power, it is a phrase
that is a signal for laughter.
He frankly believes that the
breaking of the "solid South"
would be one of the" best things
politically that could happen to
the South, and he lays the foun
dation for this conclusion. Mr.
Harris says that "the South is
bound to go slow in any ladical
move; and President Taft will
doubtless be in no hurry. In
the meantime, each man of the
South can "help the nation at
large and the South in particu
lar by standing to the gun of
his convictions and voting
conscientiously ' and , honestly,
whether for Republican or Dem
ocratic doctrines.": What the
Uncle Remus 'Magazine says in
such courageous , fashion will
have influence among its south
ern readers, and it need ; create
no surprise, when Taft is up
for re-election, to see Georgia
break away from the solid South
and cast her vote for a Republi
can President. -
Booster Spirit Spreading.
Wallace Nash, of Toledo Lin
coln county, was a Coryallis vis

ing gratification at the worderf ul,
growth and prosperity every

siasm when speaking of, the pos
sibilities of his home county;
The boosting spirit , seems to
have pervaded the air and not
withstanding adverse winds, has
at last reached the beautiful lit
tle towns along the sea shore.
Among other good things, Tole

pumpkinheaded they have been
in wasting golden opportunities.
Over $600 has . already been
raised and the tireless commit

the masric touch of oratory.
debted to MissJaivis for the fol-i That's right brothers!. Throw
lowing letter:
"Cannot you give Mothers'
Day wide and persistent pub
licity, and urge churches, Sun
day schools and all other or
ganizations, military, social, fra
ternal and civic to observe the
day? The mayor of Los An
geles has issued a' proclamation;
so has the Governor of South
Dakota; and West Virginia's
Governor also urges all citizens
. to observe the day. How about
the ixovernor or uregon, mayor
of Oregon cities, etc?
To urge this new day of spec
ial observance is a simple propo
sition, prompted by the most
exalted motive that of paying
proper tribute of love and re

aloud to the weary passers-by,
