It waa plainly evident that there hud
been no mlHlake made In selecting Mr.

waa standing and on down to tlie pres

ing In exercises couuected with tlio
university. Taking up liiaaubject, he
bandied It In an able and Hchularly wuv,
discussing man, hi origin, bit dead
ny and the position he should fill In
the world, dwelling more heavily on
the second thought. "Muu cannot
control hia origin, but he can control
liUdiMtluy;" and mo ho admonished
the atuilent to be on Ihu alert and al
wnya keepa watchful eye that lie might
attain that highest atuudaril of a moral

On the whole, the sermon by Mr.

those who heard It.

olislio sheet, the I'oftlana urcgo i-
ian, h'iH persistently slundereu tno
office of tho secretary of Hate. It
tins blurred und insulted both tno
past und present luliniiiistnition of
this ollice and held both Secretary
Kincuid und ex-Secretary McBride
up im public robbers who improp
erly persuaded the legislature to
retain their enormous fees and sal
aries. "The facts do not leave Harvey
Scott a foot of ground to stand
uKn. The facta show that the
ollice at present is not paying over
5,000 a year, and it has never paid
the occupant over from 15,000 to
17,000 a year.
"The Oregonian has published
several times as a fuct that the
secretary of state receives in salary
und fees 120,000 a yeur. Secretary
Kincaid has today made up the
figures of receipts of his office for
six months past, salary, fees from
insurance companies, sales of books,
etc., a total of 4,726.53', of this he
turned over to the state treasury
according to law 2,480.14 and has
retained for his services $2,240.39.
'The clerical force of department
of state is paid out of appropria
tions made biennially by the legis
lature. Not a dollar is paid out
for that purpose that is not abso
lutely necessary. Until last Mon
day there was work in copying tne
laws and legislative journals for a
number of typewriters. That work
was completed Monday and they
were all discharged. Of course the
Oregonian will not correct its state
ments to the contrary.
"The Journal does not agree with
Mr. Kincaid in all public matters
and is not excusing big fees or big
salaries. But we want the peo-
Die to consider the above facts
as against tho Oregonian's mere
slanderous assertions and draw
their own conclusions. Harvey
Scott will defend a man like Lotan
and villifv a man like Kincaid
He probably hus reasons for ifoing
so, and has taster and ideas in such
matters that are peculiarly his
own. When the people come to
puss their Gnal opinion on public
ofliciuls their judgment will not
be unfavorable to Mr. Kincaid."
TO DESTROY CATERPILLARS.
A correspondent in an exchange
"Caterpillars on trees are easily
killed. Every year I hear of them
destroying whole orchards and
there is nothing that can be dis
posed of more easily. I bore a
hole in the tree deep enough to
reach ti e s ip, fill it with sulphur
and then plug it up. The result is
magical. The sup takes the sul
phur to every branch and tw'g and
caterpillars die at once. I have
gathered up the insects by the pint
under trees that hud become in
fested with them b fore I noticed
and destroyed them. I have never
known the remedy to fuil and
I never knew of a tree being in
jured by it, and I have pursued
this course for many years."
We find the following gem going
the rounds of the press, without
credit: "Remember . this young
