The Message of the Nasturtiums.
pHE little glass vase of the nastur
JL tiums sat on the window sill, their
bright faces turned toward the light,
their brlllant orange and yellow and
green making a glowing note of color
in the room.
Day after day they sat there without
fading or drooping, as cut flowers
usually do. Instead, their leaves grew
greener and new buds opened.
Then one day they were carefully ex.
amined to see tbe cause of this unfail
Ing life. And it was discovered that
they were growing. Stems had length
ened. Buds and leaves were unfolding.
For several weeks the phenomenon
was watched. Day after day, the
flowers that were in the vase kept
fresh and green; and as the days went
by new blossoms appeared.
But more interesting than their con
tinued growth without soil to nourish
them was the fact that the water in
the vase kept clear and seemingly
fresh. - The water in which other cut
flowers were placed became green and
stale and had to be frequently changed.!
But the water In which these nastur
tiums were growing was as clear and
sparkling as if fresh from the faucet.
And then tbe message of the nastur
tiums was caught the great fact of
life, that growth and activity make for
health and cleanliness, and that inac
tivity the lack of growth or progress
means stagnation and its ills.
Is it not true? Both in the Indi
vidual life and the body politic?
The little nasturtiums by growing
kept the water clean and pure. They
consumed those things which, if not
used in the creative purposes for which
they were intended, decayed and be
Is it not true of life?
If we do not grow, if we do not use
those forces In us intended for prog
ress, do they not turn and become
breeding spots of evil?
If there isn't activity there Is death.
And death means decay and all the
noisome results that follow.
And is it not true also of a nation?
Doesn't the nation that isn't active,
progressive, go backward and gradually
Activity in the line of nature is nec
essary for health. The 'man or woman
or nation that is not active is not
healthy, whether It be physically, men
tally or morally.
It is so true that it is a truism. Yet
the little vase of nasturtiums said it
so plainly, so cheerily, so beautifully
that It brought the truth home newly
And we need to be active mentally
and morally as well as physically. For
there is a mental and moral health as
well as physical. And those of us wlto
And ourselves inactive in these mat
ters should take to heart the message
of these bright little nasturtiums,
whose growth, which meant activity,
made for cleanliness and health.
Billy Pig's Red Coat.
OU must not wear your red coat

one morning. "You will have to go
through the pasture where the cows
are, to go to .Farmer Brown's; put on

"I don't see why that should make
any difference- said Billy Pig, still
crying. "I want to wear my new coat;
the cows need not look at me if they do
not like red."

did not seem to notice him in the least.
Billy Pig was half way across tbe

him. "They will not see my new coat

this time he did not stop until he

"What has happened to you?" asked
Plggie Brown when he saw Billy Pig.
You look as though you had rolled in

Billy Pig did not want Piggle Brown

BY LILIAN TINGLE.
PORTLAND, Auk. 2S. Kindly give in
The Oreg-oman a recipe for tomato catsup
in which you allow the tomatoes to ferment.
Also a recipe for India relish.
MRS. P. R. C.
HOPE the following may be what
you want, but each name stands for
such varied products that I am not sure
of "hitting the mark" the first time, so
et me know if you need other recipes.
Tomato catsup Mash sound ripe to
matoes and let stand to ferment three
days, stirring each day. Then rub
through a sieve and boll until of
"thick cream" consistency. Measure
and for each gallon add one cup sugar,
one-half cup salt, one cup vinegar, one
teaspoon extract of cloves or powdered
cloves (the former does not darken the
catsup), two teaspoons ground mace,
one-fourth teaspoon cayenne pepper, or
less if a mild catsup is liked, more if
a very hot catsup is preferred. Boil
10 minutes, then can or bottle. A clove
of crushed garlic is added by some
makers to the cooking tomato-pulp
and removed before bottling.
India Relish One quart fine
chopped white cabbage, 2 quarts green
tomatoes, 6 large green peppers with
seeds removed. 3 large white onions.
Chop all very fine, sprinkle hi cup salt,
and let stand overnight. In the morn
ing drain and press the moisture from
the vegetables. Then place in a sauce
pan 3 pints vinegar, 1 cup sugar, 1
teaspoon , each powdered cloves and
cinnamon, 2 tablespoons white mustard
seed, 2 tablespoons celery seed (tied In
a bit of muslin). Boil slowly 25 min
utes.. Remove from the fire, let cool,
then pour over the chopped vegetables,
removing the celery seed. Pack into
small jars and seal at once, adding a
little cold unspiced vinegar If there is
not quite enough to cover the vege
tables. If a hot relish is wanted add.
cautiously, cayenne to taste or boil one
or two tiny hot peppers in tbe vinegar.
Interesting Erery-Daj People The Gas
f MET a man the other day who has
X written a great play," said my
neighbor. "I have seen the play and
heard a great 'deal about him, and so
you may imagine how gratified I was
to be introduced to him."
"Was he interesting?" I asked.
"He didn't say very much." admitted
my neighbor. "He was rather bored
and tired. Still. It's nice to know him."
"I met a man the other day who is,
I think, as interesting as your play
wright," I said. "He didn't look par
ticularly bored and tired, though he
did look somewhat dusty and 'per
splry for he came on a motorcycle.
He was a shock-headed young fellow of
about 16, with deep blue eyes behind
big spectacles. He came to collect the
gas bill. And I'll confess when he
rapped at the door and presented the
little slip I wasn't looking for an inter
esting half hour."
"Was the bill wrong?" inquired my
"No. But it seems he represented the
municipal light plant. I happened to
say casually that I liked the municipal
plant. This started him to telling me
about the fight the town had bad to put
In municipal lighting. And in a few
minutes a torrent of socialism and the
brotherhood of man and the social con
science and civic efficiency boards was
being poured out upon me with such
ardor and earnestness and understand
ing that I felt like going out and wav
ing the red flag. And I am secretly
considering buying a red necktie."
"Wasn't it dull?" asked my neighbor.
"Not a second of it. That little fel
low had facts and figures at his finger
tips. I seemed at the heart of the mak
ing of a new social order. It was fine
and exhilarating. For one thing, he
told me about the necessity for one's
cultivating a social conscience. Of
course, it isn't new. But the way he
put it made me feel I ought immedi
ately to get busy cultivating mine. He
said the cost of installing light in a
home was 35 cents, and so putting In
and reading a meter and making bills,
together with what light might be used,
would amount at least to 50 cents. And
so the municipal plant had made that
their minimum rate. But the rival
plant, to get trade, had made their min
imum 25 cents. And so the loss on
those who only paid 25 cents was being
paid by the other consumers. And he
said we ought not to be willing to slip
out of this way of paying. what we
honestly owed, even though it might
be possible for us to do so. I must con
fess I like that standard of honesty,
"Yes. But I don't know as many of
us would look at it in that way," ad
mitted my neighbor.
, "Then what he told me about the es
tablishment of civic efficiency boards
was interesting. He admitted that
when it came to politics, it was hard
to get facts. He said one party would
tell you one thing, and another just the
opposite: and possibly a third give you
a still different version. And It was
difficult to get at the truth of tbe mat
ter. You might believe one party or
the other because you had friends in it,
or your father or employer belonged
to it. But you had nothing really to go
on but preference or prejudice. To illus
trate how illogical this was. he said if
one person told you the distance across
room was five feet, and another 10,
and still another person 15, you wouldn't
take the word of any one. You would
measure and see. And he said that was
the way we ought to take politics, to
go by facts. And so non-partisan effi
ciency boards were being created to
give facts that any one could prove for
himself. I tell you I had an interest
ing and illuminating half hour. And
I have a lot more respect for dusty gas
collectors on motorcycles than I ever
"I'll look at them with a new eye
myself." laughed my neighbor.
"Do," I advised. "Not all the inter
estlng people are writing plays."

Arbiters Report on Printing Work
Done for County.
Arbiters' to whom had been left the
adjudication of a printing bill of $244.70
filed with the County Commissioners
by the Glass &Prudhomme Company
reported yesterday that $45 was a good
price for the work and material. The
report was laid on the table, pending
further action. President Graham
Glass, of the printing firm, declares
he will suggest that the case be sub
mitted to the United Typothetae of
America. The printing bill now in dis
pute was for supplying adidtional bal
lots for the primary election last May.
ine arbiters comprised one man cho
sen by the Commissioners, one by the
Glass & Prudhomme Company and a
third by the Commissioners and the
printers. E. H. James. Chester A.
Whltmore and Milton Markewltz, the
arbiters, signed the report submitted
"We went over the figures carefully
and that Is our best judgment," said
one arbiter. "As we are an business
competitors of Glass & Prudhomme
Company we dislike to talk about It."
"The award of the arbitration board
and the bids of these same men on the
job when It was first awarded are much
at variance." said Mr. Glass. "It looks
like the manifestation of a spirit of
revenge or something of that sort."

One reason mercoiized wax is so
strongly recommended is that it really
takes the place of several different
cosmetics, saving time, patience and
expense. It Is better than any cleans
ing cream, better than any massage
cream, and better than any rouge, tor
accomplishing the results for which
such articles are used. As the .wax
actually absorbs an old. faded or dis
colored cuticle, a little each dy, the
underlying skin which gradually ap
pears, is clearer, softer, healthier-hued
and more youthful than any cosmetic
made complexion. Spreading on a thin
coat of this wax at night, washing it
off mornings, in a week or so produces
a marvelous transformation. Juat one
ounce of mercollzed wax, obtainable at
any drug store, will do the work.
