Southwark. London. An ingenious old writer says that the name originated as follows: "In Dead man's place, at St. Marypverus. a man servant being buried at seven of the cloeke in the morning, and the grave standing open for more dead Commodi ties, at foure of the clocke in the same evening he was got up alive againe by a strange miracle, which, to be true and certaine, hundreds of people can testifie that sawe him acte like a coun try Ghoste In his. white peackled sheete." However, a more exact his torian explained that the name was merely a corruption of Desmond's place. "That Will Do." Big as a house was one of the two arguments at the corner, and he saw ed the air with arm and mighty fist My, but he was laying down the law to the other fellow a little chap and in such a public place it was the more humiliating. The big man's anger was at its height and his words the loudest and strongest, when the little fellow turned to face him and quietly said: "That will do." Did you ever have a small man, with a little red on his cheek bones and eyes between blue and gray bore you with those eyes and remark: "That will do?" Well, it did do. Chicago inter Ocean Price of Ignorance. Many children are never taught to think and to reason out every question in a fair minded, reasonable manner. That is why we meet with and suffer from so many unreasonable and un reasoning men and women, who are governed by prejudice, impulse and personal feelings, instead of by thoughtful and careful consideration. They do not see what is right because they do not know how to judge without- prejudice. Our Four Footed Friends. The Common Fraction.

CORRESPONDENCE STAFFORD Last week Wednesday Mr. Weddle had the misfortune to be kicked by a horse. At the present, writing he is slowly getting better, retarded somewhat by a man's anxiety to se cure his crops. Mr. Gage and Mrs. Holton visited Mrs. Milem at the Sell wood Sanitar ium and found her able to sit up a part of the time, and walk about the corridors. She seemed quite hopeful. The funeral of Mrs. John Kraxber ger was held Tuesday, the 23rd at the Lutheran church; was attended by a large concourse of friends. Mrs Kraxberger had been ill with tuber culosis for more than a year. Her death is deeply felt by the many friends she has made in the few years of her residence in Macksburg. Mrs. Sol. Struhbar was able to at tend church Sunday the 28th, for the first time after a long illness. Phil Graves and wife, Fred Lamour and Leonard Wilbur are at the Hot Springs. Frank and Glenn Hilton, Walter Adams and A. A. Baldwin left early Monday morning for a few days' fish ing at Table Rock. We are reminded of the return of harvest time by the shrill whistle of the threshing machine owned by John Heppler and George Walsh. The hop growers of Macksburg and vicinity are cheered by the fine condi tion of the crop, and also by the prom ise of a fair price for the coming harvest. The Macksburg children are work ing in earnest for the Juvinile Exhibit at the County Fair to be held at Canby. Mrs. Baldwin, Sr., enjoyed a very pleasant visit from Mrs. John Heppler and her little daughter, Bessie, Fri day. Work is going steadily forward on the Canby and Molalla R. R. Macks burg people are anticipating railroad communication with the outer world in the near future. Mrs. Arthur A. Baldwin has been offered the same position in the Macksburg school she held four years ago, as Miss Florence Buchanan. The offer is accepted and Mrs. Baldwin expects to return to her former posi tion at the opening of the school in October. A number of the former pupils of Mrs. Baldwin paid her a visit of wel come the 28th of July. These were Frieda Zinger, Hilda and Gertrude Barth, Wilburger, Elsie and Thurmel da Drayberger and Lydia Kummins. Two future pupils, Hedwig and So phie Kraxberger were included in the party. Mrs. Baldwin entertained her youthful friends on her shaded lawn and all seemed to enjoy the visit. Mr. Baldwin enjoyed a very pleas ant visit from Chas.

All things became new. The world was transformed to that Greek. For the first time he saw how beautiful was the world. Flowers he had not yet seen bloomed under his feet, new stars' shone over his head, and the changing moods pf nature filled him with delight. Why? The change was not in the world, but in the Greek. His mind had been turned backward to the happiness and the grief of the past. Now he looked" outward and forward to the beauty and the joy all about him. In our day is no Apollo to take away the backward looking mind, more's the pity. But the symbolism holds. Many of us need to have our minds reversed. I know a woman who persists in looking backward and who always tells of a day when her people were rich and accustomed to many luxuries she is' now denied. She is constantly deploring a situation she cannot help. She does not live save in a former day. Worse than Lot's wife, who took a single look over her shoulder, she al ways faces backward. I know a man whose constant theme of regret is the fact thr.t he ever changed his business. H did well, he says, at the old place and was a fool (o change. Certainly he is doing little good at his new place, largely for the reason that he is forever harking back ward to the old. He needs an Apollo. Older persons are apt to foster the backward looking habit. Says grand pa from his chimney corner: "There are no days like the good old days. Now, when I was young" Poor grandpa! He magnifies the past, minimizes the present and omits the future. He is dying, like some trees, at the top. You cannot change the past, but you can discount the present and spoil the future by refusing to live in the one and to face the other. To be successful, to stay young, to Bnd happiness, cultivate (he outward looking, forward looking mind. Face the sun. When you stand with your back to if the shadow is in' front of you. When you face the sun the shadow is behind. Wrong Diagnosis, She Before we married you called me an angel.

SHIELDS (Secretary of the Oregon Equal Taxa tion League) These be the days of mad dogs and rabies. Accordingly, our friends, the Single Taxers, to the in proper style, produce their own version of a rabies that is terrifying only to themselves. Our present tax system is their pet form of hydrophobia andl Single Tax is the means by which they would destroy it Across the line in British Columbia they point to a delightful state, or so they say of prosperity and happiness So Arcadian and Utopian must British Columbia be, to judge from the de scriptions of the salaried members of the Fels army, that it is to me a per petual wonder that TJ'Ren, Cridge et al do not remove the encouragement their lives afford to the Canadians. What a delightful example to the re mittance man, whom we occassionally scorn, would be these remittance men of remittance men, these salaried workers of Joseph Fels. And since Mr. Fels is soon to visit us and will add his paeans of praise to the wonders of taxation in British Columbia suppose we stop soaring in the cloud and tell the facts. One of these facts Is that British Columbia has not Single Tax. On the contrary, it has 15 separate and dis tinct ways and means of taxation, or raising revenue. That leads me to support the En terprise in its charge that neither TJ'Ren nor his cohorts stick sufficient ly close enough to the truth. While the . States of Oregon and Washington and the cities of the West San Francisco, Portland, Tacoma, Spokane, Seattle, Everett and Belling ham were enjoying the flood of im migration and capital seeking invest ments in the West while all these cities enjoyed unprecedented growth there was no magie influence of Sin gle Tax. While Oregon and Washington were thus enjoying this growth, the Prov The drunkard will have none of me. The heavy drinker says "no" when my name is mentioned. The man who craves rough strong whiskey passes me by. All this is as it should be as I myself would wish it. I am not for them. inces of British Columbia and Alberta which boast of the magic constructive influence of Single Tax, were all but dead, yet Vancouver had what some are pleased to call Single Tax. The cities of Oregon and Washington had their boom, had reached a point in development equal to and even in ad vance of the resources from which they drew their supports. A halt was necessary. Just at this time Western Canada and British Columbia began to awak en, stimulated by the coming of the Grand Trunk Pacific, the Canadian Northern, and the extensions of the Canadian Pacific, and by the expendi ture of over $100,000,000 by these dif ferent railroad companies, together with vast undeveloped resources. With her forests, mines, and great agricultural belts of free land yet un touched, all of which were made avail able by the coming of the railroad, and a climate that is congenial, is it to be wondered that the cities of Brit ish Columbia should have a marvelous growth? Is it to be wondered that the people of Oregon and Washington should go to British Columbia where free land may be obtained where an army of laborers is required to bring the Province of British Columbia to that state of development equal to Oregon or Washington? With all of these resources, and in addition there to the borrowing power of the cities of British Columbia equal to 20 per cent of the assessed valua tion; and where the assessment is full value, using that power up to the limit, to the extent that, should Port land or Seattle or any of the cities of the Northwest indulge in such reck lessness as Vancouver has done, Port land or Seattle would now have a bonded indebtedness of over $100,000, 000 is it to be wondered that the build ing permits of Vancouver and Victoria and the general activities of British Columbia are what they are? This influx of capital has all happen ed within a few years. But the great day of reckonening is close at hand for the cities of British Columbia. The magic of the so-called Single Tax will not save them. They have not less than 15 different ways or methods of obtaining revenue in the Province of British Columbia.

About 50 shots were exchanged between Unit ed States soldiers and unidentified men from the Mexican side of the riv er last night in East -El Paso.' No one was hit. There were no arrests made. Three shots were fired from the Mexican side, striking a house belong ing to C. H. Cole. After the first three or four shots were fired, the soldiers on guard on the American side opened fire. The bullets then came faster from the Mexican side, one of them striking A. D. Martinez' house. The houses of Messrs. Curtis, Williams and Yonkers near the river were stnick.by bullets as was the roof of one of the El Paso, foundry buildings. After the persons on the Mexican side, of the river had fired 30 or 40 times they ceased, and the American soldiers went toward the river to in vestigate. At this moment a posse, composed of Sheriff Peyton J. Edwards, and dep uties, arrived, and started a search of thick brush growing in the old river bed. No trace of the men who fired from the Mexican side could be found. The police officers returned, leaving further investigation to the soldiers. Captain D. G. Berry, who was in command of the United States guards has started an investigation. It has been reported that the firing was done by Mexican rebels to attract attention of American soldiers to a spot on the Rio Grande, while rebel "gun-runners" crossed at another point, but this has not been confirmed officially.

A fight for a $2,000,000 fortune accumulated in Al aska by Henry Curtis Elliott, is be ing waged in the courts here by his two widows. Katherince M. Elliott, the first and divorced wife, holds a "contract will," in which Elliott be queathed to her all that he then pos sessed or hoped to possess. He made her his sole executrix. A second document making void any will that might have been made be fore, is held by the second wife, Mrs. Grace Van Wormer Elliott. By this document everything is left to the second Mrs. Elliott and a son, Hen ry Curtis Elliott, Jr. According to the story, Elliott, with out funds, 1897, became stricken with the gold fever. His first wife had sav ed money by painting china, and "grubstaked" her husband at the same time demanding half of his winnings in the Klondike region. He promised her she could have It He met two other men, and by lo cating and selling various claims ac cumulated his fortune. On his re turn to Chicago Elliott and his wife were divorced and he went to New York where he met and married Grace Van Wormer. Elliott returned to Alaska, and in 1909 was buried beneath an avalan che. In January, 1910, his last will was probated." Various legal entanglements have appeared regarding the first will from time to time, and finally August 7 was set as a date for argument in theAp jellate Court as to the validity of the "contract wilL" LLOYD WILLIAMS SUED D.
