To meot the needa of large numbers of
people both old and young who live in re
mote sections of the country ur iu places
where the schools are not advanced, tbe
University of Oregon baa made arrange
me ut to couduct a four yeare coarse of
study by correspondence. The plan is
to make (his course entirely free except
small charge which will cover the act-
ual eipenses. This charKe will le in
the form of a small sum for each lesson
sunt out. It, will not exceed what is act
ually paid out for postage and clerical
work io conducting the course. 8tu-
dents will ho -xiectcd to order their
textbooks either through local dealers or
from the Portland book stores, it is
hoped that large numbers of people will
avail the in celves of tho opportunity to
do intellectual rfork under competent
guidance It is also hoped lo interest
the press of the state in the undertaking
bo that it may become very widely
known. No newgpaper can he paid for
pubiiHbicg the announcement of the
course, bim e it is not a plan for making
money, Ixit it it hoped that a wide
spread public spirit may be awakened
aud that the press will lend its powerful
asHistance toward the success of the
work. The course w ill be divided "into
Ave departments uf study: English
literature, lttin, history, and civics,
mathematics, science. Four years of
work have been plauned in each of these
departments. Any ptrstm umy take op
oue or all ol the departments as lie
Tho course will be conducted as fol
lows: Any person who wishes to take
one or more of the studies may' send in
his name to the University of Oregon,
Eugene, Oregon. The words "Extension
lepartnienl" should be written on the
envelope. He should also date clearly
what lines of 6tudy he wishes to lake
np. Uirections will be sent to luia at
oo co for procuring text books and in
structions concerning the details of the
Queslious will be mailed to students
covering definite portions of the text
books from time to time as they are
uceded. These should be carefully
answered and the auewera mailed to the
Extension Department of tbe University.
They will be corrected and returned, to
gether with a new set of iuestiont.
This is in brief the scheme of tbe
course. Hie University has been carry
ing ou this work in a limited way for
two years, but it is now hoped to make
it much more exteueivo and more gen
erally useful to the people of the state.
Tbe experience of the past however,
places the extension department in a
position lo manage tbe practical details
ol tbe course accurately and promptly.
The only charge which will to mu Jo will
bo for the liste of questions aod for mark
ing the auswere which are tent iu. It
it thought that this cau be reduced to
ten cents for each eet of questions and
ten cents for examining each set of
answers. Ibis Buiall lee will probably
cover the actual expenses of the course
and nothing further it desired by tho
It it to bo noted that this course it
opeu to all perious who desire to engage
in study. It will cover tbe ground of
tbe usual good high school courte, and
tbe quest ious and suggestions which
will be tent out may often be used with
profit iu reviews ami examinations iu
city high echoolr. No person should
loci that a course of this kind is a com
pleto substitute for a good school, but if
the school is not available lor any reason
then much advancement iu souud learn
ing may be made by t.ikii.g a correspon

THE LAW OF KARMA.
Tho people of Central IViut, iu Jack
ion county, aro preparing for the city
election to take place ou March 8. One
caucus nominate J the following candi
dates: For trustees, John Olwoll, C.
Jeffries, Mart. Welch, J, M. Uibsou, S.
Ft Hathaway ; recorder, Prof. Barnard;
marshal, C. B. Uilcbriut; street commit
tioucr, 0. H. Paukoy) treasurer, ti. S.
Moore. The day following, another cau
cus uouiiuated this ticket: Trustees,
Johu Olwoll, J. W. Merrit, John Clem
ents, 8. W, McCleudou, P. Applygate;
marshal, ( W. Little; recorder, J,
W, Jacobs; street commissioner, Leo
lugram; treasurer, ll. 8. Moore. The
election, says the Monitor, will be very
hotly contested by both tickets from
tart to finish,
"The luw of Karma is the law of elh
leal cau-atiun," savs Professor John
MacKenr.Ifl ; "it Is law applied In nvr
ality. It took many centuries for tbe
human mind to realize that' tbe
world of nature operates according to
law; that each cause has its effect, each
antecedent its consequent. Now we are
just beginning to acquire tbe concep
tion that tbe ethical cr mora! csivcrte
it alto governed by law jait at much at
the world of physical nature. Tbe re
ductioa of the highest tpberet of human
aspiration and effort to the domination
of ascertained law Is one of tbe most im
porta Dt objects of theosopby. In the
law of Karma theosopby applies science
to conduct. Theosopby believe that
spiritual principles cannot be cultivated
by capricious fancies. Mao It contin
ually generating through forma of men
tal image In the mantslc or mental
plane. The mental images become Hv
ing entiliet in the astral plane, and
there operate for good or for evil, ao
cording to tbeir character. Thoughts
have been photographed. Each thought
Lai its own particular form ' and color
and utters its own particular sound or
vibration. Throughout life we build np
a thou jht body from these mental im
ages. At death we pass Into Oevaclian,
where we assimilate all our life experi
ences. Wlieu we again emerge Irom
Devacban to reincarnate, tbis thought
body again becomes active, aod draws
onto itself the elements from the vari
oua planes, which correspond with its
nature, and tbe ego is born in a particu
lar nation, race, family aud environ
ment adapted to its condition aud state
of development. The laws of Karma eV
termine tbis in such a manner that ab
solute justice is done, and each individ
ual is given a body and place iu condi
lions which exactly coi respond to Lis
deserts. Under the law of Karma every
good action and every evil action brings
ti own reward.
"Theosopby shows I bat according to
tbe law of Karma aspirations ar.d dc
sires in this life become capacities in our
next incarnation ; repeated thoughts l
come tendecies, wills to perform become
wisdom, and painful experiences become
conscience. Ihe evolution ol the soul
takes place according lo the law of Kar
ma. It teaches us that we cannot avoid
th? consequences of cur acts, nor can we
throw the responsibility for our actions
upon any other person, not even upou
Jesus Christ, as orthodox theology
teaches. The doctrine of the vicarious
atonement is against every principle of
justice; it is a contrivance for avoiding
the results of conduct. The doctrine of
imputed righteousness and remission of
sins by any act of faith, ceremonial or
sentiment, is faloe and pernicious leadi
ng, and against every principle of jus
tice. Under tbis theory law is forceful
only up to the point where it meets a
sentiment. It operates against the sol-
xlity of the human race, for it says tho
ndividual leliever gets a salvation
which the majority are not tj share.
The result is that in neither Protestant
nor (he Koman Catholic church is a life
of morality essential lo religiou, nor it
life a test of character.
'Theosopby makes life a lost of char
acter, and claims that a pure, lofty, no
ble character cau only be won as tbe re
sult of much effort and long striving.
Theosopby explains the true idoa which
underlies the doctrioo of the atonement.
:V11 religions possess tbe fundamental
truth underlying it. But the church to
day does not possess this truth, but a
travesty of tlte true idea is so perverted
by tbo theology ol tho day that it is no
