The Moro Observer is battling against
the mistaken economy of lessening sal

reducing the salary of school superin

can exist on that sum? Competency is
a secondary consideration.

Apology and Advice to Mosier
Dufur, April 13, 1893.
"Errors, like straws, upon the surface flow.
xie wiiu wouiu seurcu ior pearls must dive
Bless your heart, "Mosier," Keno is
real sorry for having offended, but you
must grant that if there is any place
where it would be proper, or even par
donable, to have slang slung around
promiscuously it certainly would be in
a description of a cock fight. Did you
ever attend a cock fight, "Mosier?"
You know that God made the game
chicken, and if he was made for any
other than fighting purposes, the human
family have been unable to "catch on"
to hia other uses ; in fact, he is as value
less for anything else as you are as a
Did you know that in your article
criticising me for a breach of the second
essential property of style, propriety,
you badly ruptured the first principle,
purity? "Let him who is without sin
cast the first stone."
There is another thing you were un
aware of, "Mosier," when you sat down
upon me so hard ("sat down upon" is
slang, but it will have to go now), and
that is, that seven of the candidates,
mentioned in the article, have already
thrashed me, and the other two are in
training. I know that you are too tender-hearted
to speak or write harshly of
man with a broken nose and two dis-
olored optics. How does that last
'discolored optics" strike you?
As to the particular slang expressions
that are too old for further use. vou
ust really excuse me. I live fifteen
ilea from the nearest railroad. Have
heard that "too too" and "utterly utter"
were out of fashion, and don't use them
any more. You must have recently
come from some large town and made
this business a etudv, North Dalles or
veiiio, pernaps. un, how 1 envy you
your past opportunities! But do, just
this once, take the advice of a fool, who
realizes his and your own awful condi
tion, and let some of the old-time
"uiossbacks," whom you say have been
digging bait, catcli you a few trout for
bruin food. Do it at once, for when yon
begin to think that the ticks on a horse
were ever intended for ornaments, it
will bo but a short time until your brain
will rattle around like a bullet in an
After you eat a few fish, you will pos
sibly be able to see the moral in the
following story, which was told me and
I have taken care to remember: An
Englishman, hearing the late slang ex
pression "Where am I at," was greatly
shocked, and said it was 'orrid what
bad grammarians Hamaricana are."
"Why?" asked a bystander, "What
should he have said?" "What should
he 'aye said?" repeated the Englishman,
"he should have said, Where is tny

My wife was confined to her Ded for
over two months with a very severe at
tack ot rheumatism. We could get
nothing that would afford htr any re

first application, and by using it regu

J. M. Patterson and wife returned
from Pendleton last night, where they
have been in attendance on the G. A. R.
reunion and Women's Relief Corps. J.
R. Warner also returned. Portland

pent of this enough others went to swell
the delegation to 100.
Mr. Patterson reports that the re

has ever been hia fortune to attend.
The Pendletonians exceeded all custom
ary demands in providing for the enter

gaily decorated with flowers and ever

A sensational 6tory is now going the
rounds of the English press to the effect
that Charley Mitchell, the prizefighter,
intends abandoning the ring and enter

voted to this apDarentlv important
piece of news, and some of the writers
on the other side have even mapped out
a lecture route for the British champion.
According to these stories, Mitchell is
to travel about Great Britain in com
pany with several well-known evange
lists,, speaking an hour each evening on
"The Dark Side of London." When
Mitchell reached London he was too
much occupied to give any attention to
the report. He laughed and asked what
the papers would have him do next.
