" An old man dying in a wretched tenement in the slums of a big
Nothing surprising in that.
A bit sad but natural old men must die and most of us are poor.
As he picked feebly at the ragged quilt covering him he was
talking and the lone watcher at his bedside, had she been wise, would
have learned a great lesson from the wandering words.
He babbled of green fields, of running streams, of games, school,
fishing happily back to boyhood.
No longer a weary, hopeless old derelict but a happy, laughing
boy with all the world before him and such a bright and joyous
world it was.
- '. In his talk he went after the cows, found a bird's nest, saw a
.Suddenly he was silent the groping fingers faltered a startled
look came into his face a smile that wiped the years away like a
sponge a faint, whispered "Mother." - ,
. ; And he drifted out into the Unknown Land.
Thank God for memory -sometimes.
: Thank God, we can hold fast to the happy days and know not
what lies ahead 1
. A memory that could banish all the years and the sordidness
surrounding him--could bring back youth, and love and hope did
bring back "Mother" to such a weary old face and make it sweet
and true is the one great gift; for it promises us that somewhere,
sometime, we shall find it all and ''Mother.' ;
Tomorrow I shall wear a white carnation. Will you?
There are three candidates for nomination for Vice President
oh the Oregon Republican primary ticket to be voted May 21. They
zxk Henry Cabot Lodge of Massachusetts and Wm Grant Webster
of Kew York and Elwood Washington of Indiana. Webster is Jhe
fellow,, that ran in Oregon, at the last presidential primary election
tk. s4m.i5$mnation; He is therwiseunkiywn to fame. He
may; be a white man or colored, for any thing any one knows in Ore
gon or cares. - .
t A person or a personage yclept M. G. Todd, "chairman," Oak
Park, Ills., is sending cards to the Oregon newspapers, bearing a pic
ture of Elwood Washington, and saying among other things: "This
is prooaoiy tne ursi instance wnere a member of the Washington
family has allowed his. namc to go before a national fxlitial con
vention since our first President." (Did our first President do
that !) The inference is evidently intended that this Elwood Wash
ington is a member of the Georee Washington famil v. But George
Washington had no children. He was the father of his country, but
ieit no airect neirs oi tne body, it does not matter much either way:

i Some of the men of the Salem district who know how to raise
sugar beets are, responding to the call of The Statesman for infor

we would like to hear from more of them; and especially would we
beglad to hear from any man or woman who has successfully made
beet syrup at home from sugar beets successfully produced the synp
without the "beety" flavor. That is the important point.

- 'There should be no strings upon
any bonds purchased by the state of
Oregon." declares the report. "We
condemn the policy of the state
treasurer in Investing such large
sums of money in one locality or In
vestment; also, his theory and prac
tice of buying bonds that pay a high
rate of Interest without looking Into
the ralue of the property back of the
bonds that must ultimately redeem
Another criticism of general na
ture Is "the systam that has obtained
In the of lice ot the state treasurer
for these many years of making ad
rances on salaries and claims against
the state before the same hare been
audited by the auditing officer or the
state naioely the secretary of state."
Referrlnr to the auditors report
which is made part of the grand
Jury's criticism is made of the meth
od of bockheeping that has been
used in the treasurer s office for a
number of years. likewise to the aud
itor s criticism of the method ot
keeping the record of collection of
Inheritance taxes in the treasurer's
office for a similar period.
In the war of commendation t,he
state tr?asurer is lauded tor inreit
