John Most the famous anarchist
teacher, in addressing an anarchistic
meeting in New Tork recently, said
that anarchists ' are ' the only 'high
minded" people In the world. Some
of them have their heads elevated,
though this action comes only near the
close of their Uvea in this "cold and,
upappredative" world. All good people
would have no serious objection to Mr.
Most's "elevation" In the same man'
Portland is entitled to sympathy,
thinks the Taeoma News. The build
ing trades are paralyzed by a big
strike; three large manufacturing es
tablishments were wiped out by last
week's Are; a demand has been for
mulated for a referendum on the state
appropriation of $500,000 for the Lewie
and Clark exposition and In conse
quence work has been suspended on
the exposition to await the result. Be
sides these distressing misfortunes both
of Portland's baseball nines are playing
in the cellar. Portland is certainly in
hard luck. But cheer up, neighbor,
you will live to lee better days.
A SUCCESSFUL MAN.
Mr. P.oosevelt has had an extraordl'
nary career, says the Salem Journal
He has held many important stations,
and in each has done his full duty. As
a civilian he was ready to devote time
to affairs of state. Later he accepted
place where the duties were onerous.
Ha went from the navy to the army,
from peace to war and In every situa
tion was a credit to the citizenship of
wTllch he must be recognized as a high
type. As president he has had many
matters of import to pass upon and his
Judgment has been tested and found
sound, the judgment of honesty .and of
diplomatic wisdom. He Is fearless and
faithful and competent, and the more
the country sees of him the more It Is
Impressed with these qualities.
As an Instance of his devotion to
whatever matter may be in hand may
be cited the addresses. They are not
appeals to patriotism nor to party.
They are talks of man to man. If he
is speaking in Kansas he knows about
corn and what is needed by the farm
ers. In Montana he speaks of gold and
copper and the miners. In Wyoming
he stiotvs that he understands the cat
tle business. At St. Louis where his
words are of a national bearing, he dis
plays a minute Intimacy with history, j

moment. It is lh knowledge the thou
ghtful student acquires, the fund that
constitutes the slock of the mind richly
stored. Mr. Roosevelt Is great man,
and the country that has rendered this
verdict in his favor becomes daily
more enthusiastic In Its conviction.
HUSBAND THE FORESTS.
tf the private owners of forest land
desire to endow their descendants and
provide for their posterity, they can
not make a more certain provision than
in planting more trees. The cousump-
tkia of timber In all forms increases as
the supply decreases. Timber that was
formerly thought to be worthless has
become valuable. The Indiana white
wood, which was thought to be useless,
unfit even for fuel, has become so valu
able for furniture that the people who
logged and burned forests of it to make
farms are loud in lamenting their fol
ly. In destroying the pine and hard
wood forests of Wisconsin the bass-
ood was passed by as having no val
ue. Now the lumberman is going dock
over his path In the forest, cutting and
sawing the basswood, which Is more
valuable than the white pine was when
it was lumbered. It Is difficult to pre
dict that any kind of tree will be found
useless. Wood that has no other val
ue Is charcoaled, and the arts continue
to demand the product.
It Is only within SO years that the
high value of black walnut timber was
discovered. Up to that tme the forests
of that wood had been cut for cord-
wood or made Into rails or girdled and
burned to clear the land for the plow.
By these processes fortunes were
thrown away. Every reader is famil
iar with the history of a pound of Iron
converted into steel and made Into
watch springs, with a value constantly
increasing with each change In form
and use.. That story of the metal Is
equaled by a recent history of timber.
An owner of forest'land In the moun
tains of North Carolina was selling wal
nut trees to a buyer, who represented a
big furniture factory. For one very
handsome tree the buyer offered 150.
The owner was suspicious and refused
to sell that tree. He sent for an ex
pert, found that it was curled walnut
and got ItfAO for it. The man who cut
it got $3000 for it oh the cars. Its for
tuns were followed on. It was shipped
to New York and sliced Into one-sixth
of an Inch veneers and sold for (60,000.
Though the owner got a big price he
did not get enough.
In view of the rapid Increase In all
timber values, it is very doubtful if
any attainable rate of interest on
money will bring such returns, even
If compounded, as can be had by plant'
ing forest trees, especially the valuable
bard woods and furniture stock. The
returns begin with the thrid genera
tion after the planter, and If each gen
eration plant a family endowment can
he created that 'Is more permanent

ONE WORD IN TIME.
Is Better Than Two Afterwards A
Chance to Front by an Astoria
It ta a strange thing how people will
put away an opportunity until too late;
it is only little things that go to make
up our every day existence; th trouble
is we don't pay sufficient -attention to
them. Backache Is a little thins some
times it oottws after a hard day's work
or a wight cold, it will poss ore you
say; It la only the result. of overtaxing
my back; It Isnt the fault of your back
but your kidneys. The exertion or
straining has Interfered with their del
icate mschaniclsm. Tou call It back
ache, but it really Is ktdneyache. If
the kidneys are not relieved chronic dis
orders set In and that Is wnere the
little thing" should not be passed over.
An Astoria man has learned to appre
ciate what delay means.
W. R. Mcintosh whose place of resi
dence Is at 593 Harrison avenue, says:
For years t suffered very much from
lameness and soreness across the small
of my back. To turn In bed gave me
painful twinges and when I was not
working but simply standing around
there was a constant aching over my
hips. The kidney secretions gave me
no end of trouble. I often thought I
had gravel, so painful were the secre
tions In passing. I read about Doan's
Kidney Pills and got a box at Charles
Rogers' drug store on Commercial St,
On taking them I soon noticed an Im
provement In my condition and the
pain serosa my back was soon wonder-,
fully relieved Though I did not take
Doan's kidney pills as regularly as I
should have done .they did me a great
deal of good."
