ST. JOHNS, PORTLAND, OREGON, FRIDAY, AUGUST G, 1920.
I walk beside the sea and
muse, among the surge lashed
. rocks; the Waves roll up and
: wet my shoes, and spoil my
green silk socks. It seems to
I me the oceans sound is one great
endless knell: its waters are the
battle ground of all that in them
I dwell. Like cannibals fish make
their meals of relatives that
pass; the swordfish fills itself
I with eels, the dolphin eats the
ybass. All fishes are avoiding
- foes by every futile means; the
I salted codfish briskly goes, pur-
suing canned sardines. I sense
Z an fcndless tragedy where'er the
breakers boom, the thrilling
epic of the sea, that tells of death
and doom. And if I bade the
i warfare cease, I'd simply waste
my breath; in vain I'd preach a
balmy peace to those whose trade
" is death. Until the end of stars
and suns the hungry fish will
slay; the big will chaso the little
ones, and stow the same away.
The- sharks would look on me

hence, just as the people do on
earth, when I talk peace and
sonse. And on the land as in
the sea red blood must always
flow; alack, alas, and woe is me,
that such things should be so.
If you want to be loved don't
contradict pconlo, oven if you'ro
sure you're right; don't bo inquisitive-
about the affairs of
even your most intimato friend;
don't underrate anything be-
causo you'don't possess it; don't
boltovo everybody clso is hup
pier than you; don't conclude
that you have never had any op
portunities' in life; don't believe
all tho evil you hear; don't ro
peat gossip.ovon if it docs inter
est a crowd; don't jcor at any
body's religious belief. Learn
to hide y.auraches and pains un
der n pleasant smile. Few care
whether you have thu earache,
headache, or rheumatism. Learn
to attend to your own business
a very important point. Do not
try to bo anything else but a
ganMoman or gentlewoman, and
that means one who has consider
ation for tho wholo world, and
whoso lifo is governed by tho
Golden Rule, "Do unto others as
you would bo done by." Py

Sam A. Koxer, Secretary of
State, says: The belief has de
veloped in some sections of the
state that persons under the
age of sixteen years may, un
der certain circumstances, ob
tain licenses or permits to op
erate motor vohicles. Such- is
not the case. The Operator's
Law specifically prohibits tho is
suance of a license or permit to
any person under the age of six
teen years, whether or not such
person be the owner of motor
vehicle, and the same section
further enacts that "No person,
who is the owner or custodian of
any motor vehicle, shall permit
any person who is less than six
teen years of age to operate or
drive any such motor vehicle or
emulov nnv nerson to onernto or
drive any such motor vehicle
who ia less than eighteen' years
of age and a licensed operator
or chauffeur." In no part of the
law is there any authority giv
en to tho Secretary of State or
any other officer to issue to a
person less thnn sixteen years
of ago a license or permit to op
erate a motor vehicle, under any
Tho French minister of war
has issued his final statistics as
other fatalities during the war so
far as his country is concerned.
Tho exact number of killed is
1.3G2.872. Fmv of us have ever
seen that many men in our whole
li cs. None of us can imagine
whnt it would look- like to see
them all in a great field at one
time. Rut if one can imagine that
every man ho has oven seen in
his wholo life should be killed,
nml that a mountain hundreds of
feet high should be composed of
corpses, he would get somo idea
of this terriblo slaughter. It
would have required 3000 trains
to transport these soldiers while
they were living, in single file
they would have formed n col
umn more than 800 miles long,
allowing a space of only two
feet between them. At one time
wo had r0. 000 soldiers at Camp
Sherman and it seemed tho
wholo face of the earth for miles
around was covorcd with men.
Franco lost as many soldiers as
would have occupied 27 such
camns. Our reirimonts averag
ed about 3500 men. Franco lost
in killed nnd wounded 400 such
regiments ns ours.

Tho Mt. Scott Herald has the
followinc to say: While the lo-
cal paper is always boosting for,
its community, many people ne
glect to boost for tho paper. It
deserves a good word, just as
much as any other business of
the community. Many people
think it sounds smart to refer to
tho home paper as tho "rag, "etc.
Even some so-called business
men speak condescendingly and
even sneeringly of tho "little"
local paper, and apparently do
not realize mat wmie tney are
comparing it to the metropolitan
papers, mucn to ua discredit,
tneirown iittio business, com
pared to the. large down town
emporiums, is in exactly the
same class as the locnl paper.
Loyalty . toujour, town includes
the home paper, which always
boosts, if it is the right sort.
How would you. Mr. Business
Man, like to have somo one sneer
at your little store, and have it
said that your stock was "a
cheap John outfit," etc.? The
local paper is your best friend.
It stands un for your town.
Try spcaking a good word for it.
