There is the stagnation mind matter.
just as there is a general lassitude of all
bodily functions following any physical
condition aside from the normal, wheth
er ancb impaired vigor is due to disease
cr to the results of indiscretions, aa an
inevitable result of all excesses.
It is noticeable tbat nearly all forms ol
di versions which appeal the most strong'
ly to tbs human race are pernicious in
tbeir effects, until at least ths lesson ol
loouVraiion tbat experience alone teaches
bar been lolly learned. Athletics appeal
most strongly to ths maa in tbe lull vig
or of youth. As be grows older he. drops
athletics, either from Inclination loilo
ing bis lessened bodily powers, or from
necessity as tbe result of tbe lesson be
baa learned of lbs grave dangers of ove
exertion, He tires ot horses, of general
amusements as ths term amusement is
construed Iu tbe popular sense. He
does not take up with cards if be is sen
sible, because devotion to cards implies a
loss of meutal and physical vigor be ia
not ready to incur, and for the further
reason tbat interest in cards implies
greatly lesseLed interest in all other
farms of diversion. To the man who
takes a serious interest in life, and it is
tbe serious aspect ot a men's tnske-np
alone tbat guarantees contentment, his
beat diversion is found in his books.

gent reading is ooo of ths greatest safe

Pobtlasd, Jan. 14 Tbe extension ol
tbe special settlers' rates recently aa-
nooured to every point oo tbe lines ol
tbe Southern Pacific in Oregon, will
prove mors of a boon to tbe Cmpqas
Valley than may be supposed. This is
the 6rst time tbat special rates of any
kind from Chicago, St. Paul and Missouri
river points bave been extended to tbe
valley. Heretofore tbsss special rates
bave extended 'only to Portland, and
sealers who desirea to locate ia Western

equalled tbe special rates made Ir.m St.

and at once set in motion tbs 'machinery
capable of giving the desired rebel,
Tbat bis efforts were highly successful is
evidenced by tbe fact that tbe Union Pa
cific and O. E A S. Companies bave al
ready agreed to tbe arrangement, where
by all points on the Southern Pacific in
Oregon will get exactly tbs same rates sa
Portland and Paget Sound. This met
ibat bomerkere can travel nearly 350
a.ilee farther after reaching Portland ia
the eysnt that they desire to locate in
SooUiem Oregon. Tbe fare from Chicago
ia 33; Iron SwLuOis, $30; from Ssoax
City, $27 90; sad from St. Peal and Min
neapolis, $25. Wer t tbe local fares add
ed settlers going as far aontb ss Aablaad,
for instance, would be obliged to pay
about $16 more. Now oke fare takes
them to tbeir destination.
It means tbat tbs Willamette, Cmp
