Tlio evidences seem to multiply
Clint the panic which surprised the
nation into a holiday period, Is not
only over but that the country is
lUiely to enter upon a season of pros
jpnrlty even more gratifying than that
tol tho last seven years. It is con
ceded that the panic was unneces
sary; that it was precipitated by the
efllct of a few magnates; that it had
ihts effect of drawing money out of
circulation when money was less
Motfipd than food and that in order

armars must "be moved" and a dol-
ar scorns as necessary to its trans-
pwr'afllon as a car. Neither car nor
lu)3urs can be hidden much longer If
nst.arn and alien people "who need
41ie -wheat wish to live.
Tho magnates are now as earnest
ly engaged In fostering goojl times
as they were formerly engaged In dis
couraging the people. Perhaps their
objects have been attained. At all

and intellect of the next generation
It is easy to prove that a calf
will show Its parentage. But gen
ius, intellect and oven moral earn
estness nro only incldentary here
Idltary. A stunted calf will make
a small adult. But tho weakling
of tho human family may be a
giant. Carlylo declared Webster the
most commanding man ho ever saw,
and ho was a sickly child. If the
human race Is different from all
others In this physical Independence
of heredity, to what extent is com
parison In mental or moral attri
butes worth while.
Nobody knows out of what min
er's hut the Booker T. Washington
of the next generation will come, or
in what humble cabin another Liln
Iight. All we know is that It will
light. All we know is that Is will
bo some miner's home and some
humble cabin. For there Is no aris
tocracy of talent and no determin
ing heredity of goodness. Tho geni
us of the next century may be a
Filipino, a Sioux Indian, a subject
of the mikado.
The first tendency which all peo
ple who get up in tho world is to
magnify their ancestry. They for
get that the colonial dames and their
consorts were shipped out of Eur
ope as good riddance. Having thus
established a family tree they be
gin to project tho royal stream of
intellect and goodness into the fu
ture and to imagine that all the
world needs Is the elimination of
some other family strains just at
the time not so worldly well circum
stanced. But Providence, fortunately
is not directed along lines of descent.
And in the future, as in the past,
genius will create its own heredity.
It is the beauty of this world that
there Is no prescriptive rights to the
great gifts of life. There is not a
boy on Coos Bay who may not look
to the career of Garfield with as
surance, or the career of Roosevelt.
The men who rule the world arc
not the boys of the men who ruled
it yesterday. In the lands where
they have attempted to contravert
tho stern impartiality of nature they
have made a sorry fizzle of it. The
hopeless imbecility of royalty Is Its
There is no royal one-third In the
United States. Tho future president
of Stanford university may be a boy
whoso parents would be today se
lected as encumbrances to the earth.
Nature has her own method "of man
ufacturing greatness and goodness.
I WITH THE t
t TOAST AND TEA
For, we know, not every morrow
Can be sad;
So, forgetting all the sorrow
We have had.
Let us fold away our fears,
And put by our foolish tears,
And through all the coming
Just be glad.

THE GOVERNOR'S JOKE.
The people of Oregon have become
habituated to the continuous procla
mation of holidays. They have had
nearly six weeks of financial ab
stinence and fasting and, from cur
rent newspaper reports supposed
that there would be no intermission
until the 14th of December. But
one day Governor Chamberlain for
got or neglected to proclaim a holi
day and It now transpires that last
Friday and last Saturday were not
holidays at all. The banks were
theoretically open for business even
if their doors were closed. Legal
obligations matured and could bo
collected by law. The courts were
legally bound to be open and legally
bound to do business. Drafts which
became dishonored could be pro
tested. Notices had to be served in
cases which Involved important ques
tions and largo property Interests.
Was the Governor's joko a practical
ono and being practical is It not pos
sible that somebody Is hurt?
Legal rights wero supposed to be
In suspense during the holidays. For
Instance a claim might bo six years
old lacking a day and that day Sun
day or Christmas or a holiday. Tho
six years provided for tho out law
ing of tho claim would not be com
plete until tho day after tho holiday.
The claimant or creditor could com
mence an action the day after tho
holiday and savo his claim by put
ting It into judgment. Of course the
creditor would bo negligent to let
tho six years so nearly explro with
out action and would deserve very
little consideration, but the govern
or's joko reaches him nevertheless.
Attorneys, bankors, business men,
farmers, and people of all descrip
tions will find that tho Governor has
Implicated an already complicated
situation by Injecting this jocular
featuro into tho situation, and it
may not, in tho end, appear so plain
as tho Governor thinks that "what
peoplo don't know won't hurt them."
Tho holiday proposition was not a
very pretty and pleasant featuro to
Inject Into tho situation at any stage,
but It was tolerated and endured
mostly becauso of grim necessity. It
never was a thing to play with and It
tho Governor really intended to
joko It was as much out of placo as
a clown at a funeral. How many
rights of appeal, rights of action, and
property rights have beon lost by
this Joko remains to bo soon.
My ship Is built of crystal:
The sails are cloth of gold,
And all the masts are silver
With Jewels in the hold.
There's "love" upon the pennant,
And rubles down below.
And diamonds and emeralds,
With pearls as white as snow.
The centerboard has flagons
Of sparkling, heady wine,
And food so rich and tempting
And all of this Is mine!
Dan Cupid Is the captain,
And Commonsenso the mate;
The sailors are my heart's desires
Who joyously await.
But sometimes in the gloaming,
When I am tlrod and sad,
I fear my ship has foundered:
Until again I'm glad.
For yonder at the meeting
Of crested sea and sky,
I know my ship is sailing,
I see the pennant fly!
And on some happy morning,
I'll waken with a bound
To find my ship in harbor,
At anchor, safe and sound.

All men are born equal but the
equality ends soon after they get in

It is only after th eglrl has said
"yes" ihat some Marshfleld fellows
stop to think that the girl will have

An experienced Marshfleld man
says that a man Is likely to put his
foot In It if he buys stockings for his
wife without first consulting her.
Because you meet a man with a
bulging forehead It Is no sign of a
great Intellect. His wife may have
swatted him with a broomhandle.

A WORD TO TOUNG MEN.
"So you have repented and aro go
ing to turn over a new leaf, haye you
young man? Well, It is a mighty
good idea. There are several things
you want to do at the outstart, how
ever, to make peoplo think you are
sincere. There are numerous little
debts you owe around town. You
can't become a full-fledged penitent
until you step around and tell tho
follows who have been holding tho
sack for you that you are ready to
make good. If you can't pay them
all of it, pay part. Or set a time to
square up. Then you have been us
ing too much bad language and miss
ing tho whole truth a wholo lot of
times. You also want to cut out all
such things. The peoplo may bo a
Httlo slow to accept your reform talk,
but they will eventually do It If you
aro In earnest. Tho restaurant keep
ers and tho clothing store man may
not rush out and grab you tho first
tlmo they see you, and want you to
como In and stand them off for a lotof
stuff, but if you mako good you will
have no trouble about credit In time.
You might also help tho folks at
homo a little. Thero aro numerous
little things you can do to help your
mother, and tho old man would And
Hfo lots easier If you would help oc
casionally. You can't repent and
still stand around on tho street and
cuss and smoko and loaf throughout
tho day. Tho first thing for a re
formed boy to do is to go to work.
Keep at it, and tho rest will como
