Under the head '-The Ideal Sen
ator" the following pen picture ap
peared in the uazette a tew issues
before tbe convention met that was
to name this "Ideal Senator. '
Editor Corvallis Gazette.
li you win allow uie space in
your valuable paper, 1 will try to
express my judgment as to what
constitutes an ideal man for state!
senator. He should be a man in
the prime of life, so if he gives sat
isfar-tion to the people ofhis county
they can send him again. He
should be a g od business man.
capable of acting: for "the county
In a conseuvative business way. A
man with some idea of law so as tj
frame a bill that would stind in
law. vHe should have the respect
of all political parties for when he
is elected he is the Senator for bis
opponents as well as those who
vote for hinjy
Since the convention met and
named the man painted above, ' the
Gazette in its irresponsible columns
has favored us with a real cut of
this "Ideal Senator" together with
a beautiful biographical sketch of
this subject of political idealism.
Now when a man baa his picture
painted and bung up ioi public in
spection we claim the right to a
just our glasses end examine the
portrait on both sides. The corre
spondent thinks a man should
know ecough to frame a bill etc,
iow iet us consider tnis point a
few moments. There was a large
perceet of the last legislature law
yers with ah able lawyer at the
head of each branch. Was their
work perceet? The most profitable
work a lawyer bas is to overturn or
dodge round the spirit as well as
tbe letter of the law. We find
many of them manifesting utter dis
regard tor the law. Look at Henrv
E. McG inn the noted lawyer from
Portland on the very day of organ
izing tne la.-t legislature and with
I e . r. -
in a iew nours auer ne nad sworn
to support the constitution and
Jaws of the state, deliberately slap
ping the Kuykendah clerkship law
in the face, a law which had bcen
solemnly enacted at a former session
This is only one instance out of a
dozen whera laws and articles of
the constitution are utterly cast
aside by our legislative bodies all
under the leadership of lawyere.
Then again the very nature of
their profession renderslawyesr more
susceptible to temptation than
most any class or profession of
u'n. i All their work is done for
fees and some lawyers will take
most any kind of a case 'regardless
of the facts or justice of the matter
at issiie if he can make sure of his
fees. We do not mean this is a re
proach to the profession, for there
are many honorable lawyers, but
this fact renders then easier to reach
with a corruption fund than most
any other class of men. Benton
has had some "Ideal Senators" but
they were not lawyers. Give us
more Tom Cau thorns r Tol Carters,
and John Dalys and fewer Joe
Simons f McGinns and Brownells,
and we will have more wholesome
laws and lower taxes.

London, April 21. The milita
ry expert of the Times in discussing
conditions at the front rays: '.-:.
"so tar as we can judge by tbe,
telegrams from the 6eat of war, the
Russians mean to msk? their ttand
at the Yalu, and in this case they
will speedily require all of their
skill and - resolution to maintain
each. a dangerously advanced posi
tion. The Rossin calculation is
tha tbe Japanese transports' only
land 48,000 men each trip and that
a fortnight must intervene . before
the second contingent can reach tbe
seine of action. Therefore should
the Japanese land north of the Lia
otung Gulf General Kouropatkin
has sufficient men to fall upon the
Japanese fores landed7, and over
whelm them before tbe troopships
can return with reinforcements.
The Russian experts say they have
nothing to fear from the army of
General Kurokai, as it would take
fully a month for him to move his
troops to the support of the other
Japanese army. Therefore, the
Kuesians aver, General Kouropat
kin is in a position ti crush any at
tempt on the part of the Japanese
to operate in Manchuria.
"If thess fac's are obvious to tbe 1
Russians, it would ssem that they
should be equally so to the Japan
ess general staff, which is directing
the campaign. The appearance cf
tbe Cossacks at Chong Sen will cer
tainly serve to remind the board
that the right flank of General Ku
rokai's army is still vulnerable, al
though the danger does not seem to
be very formidable. The fact that
nothing has been heard from Gen
eral Mischtchenko and his force of
Cossacks for three wetks may mean
that the latter means to make a
bold dash upon Northern Corea
from the Northeast, and endeavor
to strike in upon the line of com
munication between Seoul and Ping
Yaog and the reported advance of
the Cossacks upon Chon Sen may
mean just this. If tbe Japanese
have taken tbe precaution to run a
chain of forts and stout block
houses across tbe northern part of
the Co-ean peninsula, aDd have
garrisoned them with tbeir " second
line of troops, these raiders should
do no s -rious injury ta tbe Japan
ese, since the troops on the Yalu
ought by this time to have sifted
their base clrse up to the river and
thus made themselves independent
of the land line of communication.

Since it became known that the bu
bonic plague was spread by rats, the
question of means of destroying: them
has assumed greater importance. The
discovery of a perfect rat destroyer
would be of vast benefit to the pub
lic health, says the Sew York Sun.
M. J. Bosenau, director of the hy
gienic laboratory of the United
States marine hospital service, has
recently investigated a new method
for destroying rats by means of cul
tures of a certain bacillus.. This
method was developed by J. Danyz.
The virus which he obtained, while
far from being a certain means of
exterminating rats in a particular
place, may be used as one weapon in
the flight against them.
A culture of a bacillus isolated
from a spontaneous epidemic among
harvest mice was selected, and grown
in bouillon to accustom it to an ex
istence without oxygen. This was ac
complished by growing the culture in
flasks as completely filled as possi
ble. The flasks were placed in an
incubator until the culture developed,
and then kept at an ordinary tem
perature until a deposit formed and
the bouillon became prefectly clear.
Fl-om the flasks the culture was
passed into a collodion sack, which
was kept for from a day to a day and
a half in the abdominal cavity of a
rat, then kept anew in ordinary
bouillon and thence again in flasks.
This series of operations was repeat
ed several times, and at the fourth or
fifth repetition a decided increase in
virulence for mice was noted.
Mice were then renlaced in the ex
periments by younir rats a mouth or
six weeks old. Next older rats were
used. Proceeding in this way the cul
ture was specialized, and Danyz final
ly succeeded in rendering it regular
ly virulent for gray rats, black rats
and white rats, whereas it was orig
inally only slightly virulent for the
gray rats and entirely Ineffective for
the others.
Dr. Eosenau fed 115 rats with the
cultures during a course of various
experiments with the virus. Df these
only 46 died. The results seem to de
pend largely upon the amount of
culture ingested. By starving the
rats for a couple of days and then"
giving them all they would eat a very
positive result was obtained. Twenty-seven
rats so fed all died within a
week. If the rate get only a small
amount, however, not only is the ef
fect uncertain, but the survivors be
come immune and can feed upon the
cultures to their hearts' content and
be none the worse for it.
' It would seem that the virus is not
unlike the laying of a chemical poi
son, depending as it does upon the
amount ingested. But, while the
chemical poison has the advantage
of not producing an immunity, the
virus has tha very decided advantage
of being, so far as is known, harm
less for man and domestic animals.

I tell you what I sold my home
When I listed It wilh White & Stone.
I was feeling very blue and sad
My wife she made me almost mad
She did uot want on the farm to stay
She wanted to sell It and move away
So I listed it for more than a year
And still I tound myself right here.
The agents they took my place in hand
They were so sure they could sell the land
I sometimes think they did not try
For they never brought a man to buy.
They gave a wink with a knowing amile
And 'ried to fool me all the while.
With that knowing smile and wink
Thay could not fool me dou'tyou think
I saw they would not sell my home
So I listed it with White Stone
You bet I found,them just and true
They will do your work all right for you.
They will always help if they can
They deal with you as man with man.
