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. Tbe cultivation of tbe habit of intelli gent reading is ooo of ths greatest safe guards of good citissashlp, and it stsures Cmpqua Valley No Longer to be Lett fa tbe Cold. 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 Oregon were compelled to pay tbe local fare wbicb for distant points nearly equalled tbe special rates made Ir.m St. Pan! to Portland. Wnen the recent special rates were aa ooonced and be saw tbat tbe Westers Oregon was ieit oat, General Passenger Agent R. B. Miller, of tbe Southern Pa cific got slightly .'warm in tbs collar. Us did not propose to see the great Western bsll ol tbs state, with its fertile farms. get the worst ol it u be could help it. 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 qua and Rogue River Valleys hereafter are to participate ia all the benefits gained by other sections of tbe Northwest. That it will be productive ol much good to Westers and Booth era Oregon there can be no qoestkm. Tbe special settlers' rates will become effective March 1 and continue for two months.
