And while at the courthouse, tax
payers by all means should no to tha
auditor's office, otherwise they will miss
the pleasure of seeing the record of the
vast sums of the taxpayers' money that
formerly went Into that magnificent
structure of imported stone and marble
known as the "Oregonlan building."
Look at the record for the year 1899 and
see that during that year alone the Ore
gonlan drew from the county treasury
ui imnusome sum or 25,623.64. Take
a look at the years 1897. 1900 and 1901
and you will find that over J25.000 more
was paid out. not for the comfort of
the county officials, nor the public gen

(From a eulogy in the United States
house of representatives July 8, 1897,
M. De Armond was accidentally burned
to death ln his home at Butler, Mo., on
the night of November 22.)
He lived in the simple way of the
olden time; a farmer upon the banks of
the Ohio, who tilled his . own acres,
pruned his own vineyard, gathered the
fruit from his own orchard, listened to
the music of the birds ln tha trees
planted by his father and by himself,
and heard the rippling of the waters of
the Ohio as they hurried along by the
foot of the bluff, upon the brow of
which his roof tree stood.
There, ln the simple grandeur of an
American citizen, an American states
man. an American patriot, after the
manner of tha early days of the repub
lic, the manner of the Jeffersons, and
Madisons, and Jacksons, he lived tha
plain life of one of the people. When
here ln Washington, ln the discharge of
his public duties as a legislator, he was
rresh from the people, from the country,
from the farm, from the scenes of every
day rural life, and It was no wonder that
his mind and heart should he animated
and stirred ln the support of the rights
and against the wrongs of the people
whom he loved. Not merely te people
01 nis own aistrict, a district which hon
ored him as perhaps no other man ever
waa honored; not only the people of
nia own party, who for 40 years nom
inated him, and him only, for represen
tative ln congress; but the whole people
found In hlra the watchdog of their
treasury, the great objector when their
tax money was menaced. '
It is hard to tell In what greatness
consists. JHen differ about It Men
often err In attempting to draw the line
between mediocrity and sreatness. But
It does seem to me that this man, who,
had the steadiness to stand and to battle
through a generation for a principle, and
that a correct principle, upbn which rest
the rights of the masses of -the neonin:
and who had the ability upon all occa
sions, as well, as we may Judge, to do
that which was best to bo done under
the circumstances, to promote the In
terests which he had at heart, well may
be ranked as a great man.
I think we may rate him safely as
great in Intellect, great ln courage, great
ln firmness, great In that integrity
which never swerved from the path of
pubuc duty Into the nath of nrivata
gain; . which never suffered him to be
arawn away from the protection of the
rights of the people Into the support of
those who would thrive, and who in a
very large extent, do thrive, at the ex
pense of the people. When it Is said

When a man has ended such a career

the partnerhip calculations, in which
she has no right to be a silent partner.
"Some women marry a man not think

a great mistake and la liable to drag

and the budding trees, unless she is
willing to work and wait, unices she as

life, unless she craves a home free from
the haunting ghost of tha bill collector

unless she knows that she could lova a

a man in dress suit and cravat, unless
the lure of the wheat and tha fragrance
of the fruit make her bosom swell with

woman should not marry a farmer; she
should take a man whoso opportunities
