all because, forsooth, the king of Italy is

impatience about this act of the Italian
King more befitting the warm blood of
the fiery emperor of Germany. To say
the least one would have expected more
good sense from King Humbert. The

swung too widely inward for these many

where and sometime. We have no use
for a class of immigrants, whom we can
not punish, when they violate our laws,
without getting into a row with the
mother country. The man who is not
willing to assume the responsibilities of
American citizenship with all that that

' we reject a Chinaman because he cannot
be assimilated, we must reject others
for the same reason. This country has
too long been the dumping ground for
the social offal of Europe. Politicians
have from time to time placed restriction
planks in their platforms but the dumps
still continue to grow larger, until this
Italian entanglement at last demands in
thunder tones that the thing ought to stop
and stop right soon. While the nation
will Always regard with pride every for-'

of his citizenship, no matter to what
race he belongs or what country gave

PATRIOTISM VERSUS IRON-CLADS.
Now that Italy has got mad it may be
comforting to this country to learn that
the Italian navy consists of "ten first
class iron-clads, five steel war vessels and
fifty sea going torpedo boats, besides any
number of lesser iron-clads and wooden
ships of war." Well, she will need the
whole menagerie when she tackles Uncle
Sam. If we have not an army or navy
-we have men, money, stout hearts and
willing hands and enough of surplus
patriotism at present running to seed
among foreign born citizens of several
nations alone to take the contract of lick

his fist in our nose. I

Is Disease a Punishment?

and plainly tells yon in nature's way,
that as a punishment for some indiscre

unless you choose to ward it off bv

Don't Be Afraid of Cold Alp.
To suppose that the constant inhala
tion of impure air has a tendency to ex
cite the symptoms of consnmption is
not at all unreasonable, when we con
sider the wonderful mechanism of the
lungs and the efforts which they are
continually employing to throw off the
poisons of a corrupted air which h
been breathed again and again, until its
foulness has become unbearable, and
even worse overpowering. One drop of
the flnid condensed from the air which
has come from the lungs has been found
sufficiently powerful to cause instant
death. Is it any wonder that
wasting away and slowly dying upon
this destructive food?
The fear of catching cold has caused
more sickness than all the colds thatever
were "caught." With this peevish dread
many strip up their doors, bind up their
windows, and look upon every puff of
wind as if it were some keen thief who
had come to rob them of their lives.
This custom prevails mostly among
the better class, or "the rich," as they
ttrmeu. i ne poor man, whose com
forts are confined to a little frame house.
is seldom beard to complain; and bis
cbildren are always hale and heartv. in
spite of the many draughts which come
in through the cracks and the rents of
every door and window. The infinite
value and the immediate necessity of
ventilation must not be underrated, for
ii is tnis ever changing current that con
tributes the greatest boon toward the
health and happiness of all chuues of
Humanity. Hall's Journal of Health.
Plucky California Girl.
A San Diego girl distdngished herself
at Jfacihc beach the other day.' She was
one of the three students from the Col
lege of Letters who belong to the swim
ming club. They went to the bath house
in the cove of Mission bay, got into bath
suits, and rowed out to a little island
nail mile off looking down on San
Diego. The San Diegon has become an
expert swimmer,' and 6he was so bnsv
teaching her girl companions that none
of them observed two of the college boys
swimming over and carrying off their
oars. When it was discovered the San
Diegon girl remarked that she wouldn't
be outwitted by any sneaking boys.
Her companions could not be trusted in'
deep water, and they accordingly turned
pale. The San Diegon told them to eet
into tne boat, as she would pull them
across, fehe then pushed the boat off.

is worn the young woman will see her

THE VINEYARD OF OREGON.
The country near The Dalles produces splendid
crops of cereals, and its fruits cannot be excelled." It
is the vineyard of Oregon, its grapes equalling Cali
fornia's best, and its other fruits, apples, pears
prunes, cherries etc., are unsurpassed.
The salmon fisheries are the finest on the Columbia,
yielding this year a revenue of $1,500,000 which can
and will be more than doubled in the near future.
The products of the beautiful Klickital valley find
market here,- and the country south and east has this
year filled the warehouses, and all available storage
places to overflowing with their products.
It is the richest city of its size on the coast, and its
money is scattered over and is being used to develop,
more farming country than is tributary to any other
city in Eastern Oregon.
Its situation is unsurpassed! - Its climate delight
ful Its possibilities incalculable! Its resources un
