arc not better? ... Pennoyer, one of
the calamity-howlers, and the re
puted poor man's friend acknowl
edges it by starting, up his mill,
which he declared would not be run
until better times. This is one of
the largest lumber mills in the
state and employs a. large number
of men. Many poor men are await

they expect to be 'employed in it.
Bully for Pennoyer!
There is a good demand for Ore
gon timber claims, and many
deeded- quarter sections are being
purchased for $300 tp-600. The
purchasers feel confident that these
'Claims will be worth from $6000 to
$7000 ....within five years. From
present indications there will be
very little timber unclaimed in
Oregon after, this year, and many
contests will be filed in local land
offices for the purpose of canceling
entries formerly made on claims

THEM'S OUR SENTIMENTS
Hon. H. W. Scott, editor of the
Oregonian, would make a repre
sentative U. S. senator from Ore
gon. ' He is a man of superior
intellect, great breadth of compre
hension in national and interna
tional circles of influence and has a
strength of character' second in
degree to no man now- before the
American public. His honesty is
fearless and .uncompromising. He
is the embodiment of the' new and
determined spirit of the great North
west and stands to do more for our
broader commercial and political
future than any other man. He
should go to the senate from Ore
gon. Blue Mountain American.
The city of New York was not in
the business of receiving Dewey in
a manner never surpassed just for

rare occasion when the almjghty
dollar does not play an important
part. .... - - ' - ' .

The few Klickitat farmers who exerted
"nerve" last fall and sent at great ex
pense to Walla Walla valley and pro
cured the red Russian wheat for a trial
seeding on uplands are said to be in
unusuallv good spirits over their experi
ment. The yield in bushels ranges
from 35 to. 50 per acre. To show the
marked difference of the returns a
farmer on Spring creek sowed blue stem
and red Russian side by side on the
same- character ' of soil. The average
yield of the former was 23 and of the
latter 35 bushels per acre. " All the red
Russian variety produced m Klickitat
this year will be used by local farmers
for reseoding. It is believed the demand
for seed will require the importation of
new wheat by Klickitat farmers.
Col. Davidson and Mr. Johns, of the
Lost Lake Lumber Company, of Hood
River, were in town several davs this
week looking after timber. Their mill
at Hood River is too large to' be kept
busy with logs from the near vicinity
and so they must get logs from other
places, and Stevenson is about the
handiest place to get them from.
One of Aguinaldo's. particular
friends and supporters, Jerry Simp
son the notorious anarchist, who
was talking treason before a Kan
sas audience the other; night, was
very properly hissed off the stage.
and his voice drowned by the re
sonant, inspiring, patriotic tones of
"The Star Spangled Banner." An
exchange adds that he was "lucky
(or unlucky) to escape with his
worthless life. . '.-..?"'
Dewey says he isn't fit to be
president, but during his adminis
tration at Manila, when he was in
sole command, he showed shrewder
diplomacy, better statesmanship
and more common sense than prob
ably would have been displayed by
either Mr. McKinley or Mr. Bryan
Spokane Spokesman-Re view..
Where They Are Now.
Take a walk through a .cemetery ofa large
city, and you will pass the last renting place of
t he man who blew down the muzzle of a gun to
see if it wae loaded. A little further down the
slope is the man who tried to jump on a mov
ing train. . The handsome marble shaft of the
man who blew out the gas casts a shadow
across the bosom of the hired girl who lit the
tire with kerosene, while in close proximity
lies all that is mortal of the old lady who kept
strychnine and baking powder on the same
shelf in the pantry. " The dude who wore a plug
hat in Texas is quiet now, and he rests beside
the gambler who turned the trump from the
bottom of the deck. The fair damsel who
pinched ber corset to the last hole and danced
every number at the firemen's ball, slumbers
close to her lover, the intelligent idiot who
rode a bicycle ten miles in nine minutes. The
stylish young man who smoked a cigar while
cleaning his clothes with gasoline, sleeps most
peacefully, and the branches of the rosebush
which adorns the last resting place of the old
maid who contracted the morphine habit and
took too much, wave over her grave. But,
alasl Beneath a grassy mound moulders a
greasy suspender button, all that could be
found of the printer's devil who lit a cigarette
over the benzine can while washing the roUer.
The troubles of the farmer who stood in front
of the sickle to oil his mowing machine are
over now, and so are those of the battle scarred
veteran who fought in the Mexican war, won
laurels in the last great rebellion, but failed to
successfully draw his musket through a barbed
wire fence while out hunting woodebucks.
Yes, the fools are slowly floating down the
river and through the backyard fence of the
past. Pretty soon they will all be gone ; then
someone will invent a way to make a living
without work, and life will become one round
ol hilarious enjoyment.
