Government Facts
Oregon stands today
ns a
bright sample, ami advance
agent, for our American institu
tions. Our public land has lxen
sold and the money accredited
to the much-needed irrigation
of our arid lands. We expect
something for this loyalty and
tinnneial support to the great
combine of human intelligence
we Iiml as the United Stales of
America. We expect protection
from insiduous organization of
capital to our detriment, who
without adequate examination,
which so large an enterprise
certainly demands, seek to inter
fere with the earnest desire of
the people who have existed
some way ou this dry land fully
expecting that the government
would sometime use the money
that this and othor public lands
of Oregon have paid into the
l'. S. treasury, and which has
been set aside for the purpose of
reclaiming lands that would
otherwise be worthless.
The land of this country, and
the contingent water should !
united in the holy bonds of mat
rimony, suitable congenial bride
and bridegroom. Our relation
to these highly conpelent parties
demand that. We want to at
tend the wedding feast, and arc
willing to pay admission fee
luflicient to reimburse for all
the cost, but we do not want
any obsequious doorkeeper to
inlerforein our family affairs.
Uncle Ham is the head of our
family, and he has much to do,
and if some few things are not
lone brown it is not because of
partiality. We are his blood
relatives and as such we make
all due allowance for the over
time he puts in for our bent-lit

is, the water will run to the sea

too numerous to doubt the
ability of the government to do
things better than anybody else.

have abiding faith that our gov

Don't Kick.
Don't kick because you have
to button your wife's waist. Bc
glad your wife has a waist, and
doubly glad you have a wife to
button a waist for. Some men's
wives' waists have no buttons
on to button. Koine men's
wives wlio have no waists with
buttons on to button don't care
a continental whether they are
buttoned or not. Uoiue men
don't have uuy wives with waists
with bullous on lo button any
more than a rabbit. Aud then
there are meu who would much
rather buttou the buttons on a
buttouless waist of some other
man's but what's the use? You
