The case there demonstrates as in
of the country that the papers which

'women have the leisure to read and digest them. The
farther west one goes the more obvious the opportunity

advantage they have in time over New York and the

GOOD DEAL of comment haa been made by the
r-interior press recently about the departure bf
- local capital for foreign fields. This has been
especially noted in Umatilla, Union, Gilliam, Sherman
and -some 'other eastern Oregon counties. From Uma
tilla county alone several hundred thousand dollars, per
haps over half a million, has gone within year or two to
Mexico California, Alberta and other places. Nobody
challenges' the right of the owners of this surplus cash to
do this." It is theirt to go where with and do whst with
they -pleaseV Bur the old truth is coming home to many
bf trresa investors' that "distance lends enchantment to
the vie w.', ' One two men with plenty of capital have
msdes money in-Alaska; a very few are in the way of
making money in Alberta Jome think they have bright
prospects to make a pile of money ' raising coffee in
Jalisco, Mexico; yet as a rule the truth is being brought
practically borne to most of tiem that "Oregon is good
enough," and that there is no place in any country where
money can be inveatcd to better advantage, especially if
that investment involves residence in the place where the

was la keeping with his purpose. He
came upon a- young colt, upon whom

- Verse It, The evangelist records this
Incident as fulfilling the words which
had been spoken many generations be
fore, words which ths Jews had al
ways associated with the advent of the
Messiah. The Immediate disciples of
our Lord thoroughly believed him ful
filling the predictive prophecies of the
old testament. . :' ' .
. Terse It. , The writers ot the gospels
are always anxious to have It under
stood that they did not Invent the Inci
dents of their Lord's career.. It was not
the prearranged but the unexpected that
happened. He did not act out some
comedy which they had devised. He
lived. hiS own life to its tragic close;
They no more controlled his actions
than they commanded the orbits of the
planets. They -did not even at the Urns
recognise the coincidence of the event
with the words of the prophets. Hie
life was not duo to their connivance but
It flashed upon them aa a surprise..
1 Verses 17, It- The fact that Bethany
waa so near and the raising ef Lasarus
so recent, raised excitement to a high
pitch. Whether Lasarus was in the ac
companying multitude or not appears
to have been regarded of little conse
quence to the writer of this gospel.
