SOME ADVOCATE MANAGER
Resolutions Adopted at Meeting in
Old Conch School Charge Ex- j
travagance "Older Present
System of Administration.
People living- In the vicinity of the
old Couch School at Seventeenth and
Lovejoy streets expressed disapproval
of the present eystem of conducting
the municipal government at a meeting-
held Thursday night.
A group of them pot together in the
echoolhouse and listened to George S.
Shepherd explain a proposed represen
tative form of charter with the party
politics left out, and adopted resolu
tions indorsing the plan.
S. H. Gruber presided. E. Pender
acted as secretary. A lively discussion
was indulged in by a dozen or more
of those in attendance.
After adopting the resolutions the
meeting arranged for the appointment
of a committee to promote the senti
ment of a new form of government in
other parts of the city. Another meet
ing will be held next week, at which
this committee will be appointed.
Other Office Elective
Mr. Shepherd was the principal
speaker. He explained that his pro
posed system provides for a Uayor with
a salary of $4000 a year and 11 Council
men, representing the various wards,
with salaries at $1000 a year each. The
councihnen will not be required to give
all their time to municipal affairs. The
The City Treasurer, Municipal Judge,
Auditor and City Attorney are to be
elected by the people. No party desig
nation shall appear on the ballot.
Others speakers heartily indorsed the
idea of continuing the city government
free from party politics.
Mr. Shepherd emphasized the In
creased cost of the present system con
trasted with the old form of govern
ment. A number of speakers were favorable
to a city manager plan, as proposed by
Extravagance Is Charged.
Following Mr. Shepherd's speech the
following resolutions were passed?
Whereas, Our' city government appears to
be unable to carry on the administration of
Its affairs without creating: new and useless
offices, raisin? salaries and running our city
Into debt, thereby placing an almost un
bearable taxation on the Industrious ana
frugal; and Just so long as our commission
lorra of government is tolerated, just so long
will the burdens of taxation increase and fall
on thoB who are least able to pay, and who
are striving to meet the ever-exacting de
mand of municipal expenses In upholding
this form of government in its wasteful and
extravagant method and operation of pub
lic affairs. We believe in the fundamental
principles of a representative government; a
government of, by and for the people, and
are opposed to a duplication of Mayors and
other officials without head or monumental
methods; therefore, be It
Resolved, That we are opposed to the
prefiont high and exorbitant system and of
ficial recruiting methods employed and now
prevailing and forming the major part of
our present city' administration; and be it
Resolved, That we favor a representative
Instead of a commission form of government,
with a city charter guarding against this
wasteful and extravagant use of the peo
ples money, and to that end and purpose
we appeal to all good citizens as well as
taxpayers, for an Immediate change of our
present city government and administration.

RECORD HOMING PIGEONS
Present Flight World Champion Is
an. Indiana Bird.
The present world champion is Bul
let D-1872, owned ty O. W. Anderson,
of Fort Wayne. Indiana The bird was
fcttcked Iu 1909. When four and a half
months of age. training was begun.
She was taken first two. then five,
eight, fifteen, twenty-five, forty, and
then seventy-five miles away and al
lowed to return. (This training was
distributed, of course, over several
weeks.) She was then entered in the
one-hundred and two-hundred-mile
races. In 1910 she was again given the
above preliminary training races, and
allowed to compete in the two-hundred,
three-hundred, four-hundred and five-hundred-mile
races. In 1911 and 1912
she waa given the same amount of
training. In 1913, after the prelimin
ary mgnts, she won the two-hundred,
and the five-hundred-mile races, flying
the five-hundred-mile race in about
eleven hours. Shortly after this flight
the bird was sent to Abiline, Texas, one
thousand and ten miles (air line meas
ure) from. Fort Wayne. The bird was
liberated at 4:30 A. M.,' July 11, 1913.
and homed at 4 P. M., July 12, the
flying time being one day, eleven hours,
thirty minutes and six seconds. In
this same race a bird belonging to
Mr. John Schilling homed at 11:30 A.
M. the following day (July 13), and a
third bild, belonging to F. Nahrwald,
a half-hour later. All of the above
races were flown under the rules of
the American Racing Pigeon Union.
The best previous record for one thou
sand miles was made by a pigeon be
longing to H. Beech, of Fort Wayne,
in 1912, the time being two days, nine
hours and some odd minutes. And
this record lowered the time made In
1910 by a bird belonging to L. Gebfert,
of the same city, this time being three
days, eleven hours and some odd min
utes. Such -records will probably
never be beaten except by happy com
binations of strong favorable wind and
clear, warm weather.

Music of bagpipes of Scotland en
livened the O.-W. R. & N. Employes'
Club river party on board the steamship
Beaver Thursday night. With a happy
assemblage of 99S persons on board
the boat left the Alnsworth dock at
:4o o ciock, going as far as St. Helens
and returning about midnight.
A potent factor in the success of the
affair was the O.-W. R. & N. Employes'
band which, under the direction of S.
E. Westover, gave a concert, first in
front of the company's general office
in Portland, then at the Ainsworth
dock and all during the trip. J. D.
Farrell. president of the company, gave
the Employes' Club the use of the
boat and the crew.
Dancers Use All Declts.
On every deck there were dancers
and music In the social hall splendid
vocal and Instrumental solos, mingled
with conversation and merriment, made
evident the festival spirit. The popu
lar piper, whose bagpipes were one of
the most happy features of the party,
was J. H. MacDonald in full costume.
Blllio Southerland entertained the
guests with the "sword dance" and a
number of interesting Scotch dances.
Refreshments were served in the dining-room
by the regular Beaver force.
Candy booths for the club benefit were
maintained by W. M. Abel and the fol

"Now that we are all here, let's make
this a night of nights and a time of
times," and every excursionist adopted
the slogan. They took possession of the
entire steamer. Captain E. W. Mason
and Purser H. Eddlngs thought they
were in charge, but before the boat pro
ceeded Deyond the city limits they
found out they were mistaken. The

FARM ACCOUNTANCY URGED
Dollar for Blank: Book and
Saturday Evening: Post,
The Department of Agriculture puts
the value of the chief necessaries of
life consumed by an average farm fam
ily each year at a little under $600; but
over $400 worth of these necessaries is
contributed by the farm itself, leaving
only $X74 worth to be purchased by the
That suggests one difficulty with the
average farm bookkeeping:: It consists
of only a cash account. A good many
farmers- can tell, with approximate
accuracy, how much money they re
ceived and paid out during a year. The
number that have even an approximate
notion of the value of articles con
sumed on the farm is much smaller. "1
got so much for my hogs," a farmer
may tell you; but if you ask what he
might have got for the feed they con
sumed he answers: "Oh, I raised that
And there are still many more farm
ers who have no clear notion as to how
much caeh they received and disbursed.
They know only howmuch they have
left at the end of the year. In farming,
as much as in banking and railroading,
good bookkeeping is the foundation of
real economy and efficiency. Stuffing
$8 worth of corn into a pigskin and
selling it for $7.50 is certainly not
A great amount of money is lost
yearly in milch cows simply because
the owners do not know what each
quart of cream they sell hai actually
cost them. A proper but very simple
set of books would show at once which
cows yielded a profit and which were
merely perambulatory corncribs.
A dollar invested in a blank book
and a pen would be the best invest
ment many farmers could make.

New Tork Times.
Colon H. Livingstone, vice-president
of the ' American National Bank of
Washington, came to New Tork the
other day to confer -with other offi
cials of the Boy Scouts of America.
"A thing which surprises and dis
tresses all of us," said Mr. Livingstone,
is that so many persons do not under
stand that there are two organizations
bearing the scout name Boy Scouts of
America and tie United States Boy
couta. This would not be serious If
tne two organizations were not so dif
Cerent in character, methods and pur
pose. The chief difference is that the
United States Boy Scouts are avowedly
military. The Drs are equipped with
?uns and drilled In armories in regular
military lashlon, whereas the Boy
Scouts of America do not have militarv
drill and do not carry arms as part of
"The men on our National council and
its various boards and committees are
agreed that it is not only dangerous to
place firearms in the hands of boys
12 to 15 years, but it defeats the pur
pose which evidently is in the minds of
those who did it.
"We in the Boy Scouts of America
open to the boy the whole world of
wholesome interest; the out-of-doors,
trees, plants, birds, animals, the winds
and stars, tides and fogs and all that is
beautiful and significant in nature and
Important to man and to commerce. In
terpreting those fascinating things in
ici-ius which ooys can understand, we
fix nis Interest upon all things that are
good and noble. We do not preach to
the boy, but by illustration, example
and his own personal experience re
veal to him that he can have just as
much fun doing 'good turns' to persons
or animals and helping good causes as
he can in mere mischief-making."
MUSIC OF SOME SORT
And the Soldiers Ordain What
Atlanta (Ga.) Constitution.
Though a strange oversight, no pro
vision for regimental bands seems to
have been made for ,the new army
Kitchener is recruiting for England.
Himself the embodiment of silence and
lack of emotion, what the British troops
might suffer through the absence of
musical accessories does not seem to
have occurred to him, although it ap
pears his long military experience
would have taught him the value of
music in war.
The oversight is to be remedied, it is
reported, largely by nublic subscriDtion.
Full bands are to be provided in some4
instances. 5ut the more frequent ar
rangement is to be simply for a fife and
drum corps. Anyone who has listened
to the stirring melody thrown out by
this combination does not need any
elaboration to know the part it may
play in the fighting.
It is curious how the taste of the av
erage soldier runs, when it comes to
the music which ia to supply him In
spiration by which to fight, and, per
haps, die. In the Spanish-American war
none of the more or less stately "Na
tional hymns was in vogue. Instead,
that rollicking bit of "rag," "There'll Be
a Hot Time in the Old Town Tonight,"
furnished the "pepper" for most of the
fights of consequence. In the British
Boer war they used to hum, while ram
ming down cannon ball, "Here's Another
Lump of Sugar for the Bird" or "A Lit
tle Bit Off the Top." It is said that in
Jhe Far Eastern war the Russians did
some of their best fighting to the tune
of a nondescript ballad, the substance
of which was a constant reiteration of
"Ivan's in the Garden Picking Cab
bages." What the Japs chose we do not
know, but we may well imagine that
when they went into battle it was to
the lilt of some saucy tune rather than
a dignified national "anthem." The
"Tipperary" of the present war Is, of
course, familiar to every one.
Your Boy's Vacation.'
What is your boy doing this Summer
vacation? Has he something to do each
day these three months as definite and
educational as he had during the pre
ceding nine school months? If not, why
not? Does he need three months of
undirected, aimless rest? If he is a
healthy boy, he does not. Indeed, such
a vacation may be demoralizing.
No healthy boy needs to lie about and
rest, till he must devise new entertain
ment to vary the monotony of rest.
This is but preparation for habitual
idleness. The boy's unfitness for work
at graduation is not to any great extent
the fault of the school. It is the fault
of his father, who was too busy with
business to save his son; to lay out
daily programmes and watch them
done; to direct, to counsel, to command.
Bringing up a boy costs time and
thought and vitality. But it pays. For
what shall it profit a man, if he gain
the whole world and lose his own son?
Or what shall a man give in exchange
for his son?

silverware which had been served with
it and departed. He soon returned

little hollow you strike one of the large
trunk nerves which springs between
the vertebrae at the base of the neck
and runs through the arm to the wrist.
In the hollow of the elbow the nerve
lies over a bone. When you strike that
spot you feel a tingling sensation
which isn't exactly funny, but because
it tickles the bone is called the "funny
