A LAY SERMON ON THE RECENT CAMPAIGN
St. Peter in his epistles, written nineteen centuries agd, gave j
fair -warning to 4he followers oZ La Follette !and many who

a better.'foreign trade today than
he had before the war. The vol
ume of our agricultural exports in
September was 158, as compared
with 100 used as the average for
the period from July, 1909, to
June, 1914. We are selling more
in volume and getting better
prices for it. The wheat exports
in September were nearly J 33,
000,000 bushels as compared with
15,408,000 bushels in September
last year. - ; ;'
The increased exports of bread
grains appear even more import
ant, as the department of agri
culture explains, when it is con
sidered that the export price of
wheat In September was $1.36, as
compared with $1.12 a year ago;
and the export price of rye $1.23
as compared with 95 cents last
year. Cotton exports In Septem
ber were 774,000 .bales, the larg
est September export since 1913.
There was also an increased for
eign demand for our dairy prod
ucts and canned and evaporated
fruits. 1 ,

VOTKI FOR ECONOMY
President Coolidge has been so
economical that he is known as
stingy. He never made much
money In his life and always had
to be economical. , He has carried
his habits of economy into nation
al affairs. He is not thrifty in
his personal affairs, but he was
always economical. .
Just at this time the country
voted for ah economical adminis
tration. - We can have thrift a-
plenty, but unless we are economi
cal thrift won't buy us anything.
Money just runs in and runs out.
President Coolidge proposes to get
results, to have money stay in. the
able surplus. But a republican

abroad and only moderate or de
ployment and good wages, can give
our farm producers better home

SEEKING THE TRUTH
It is a fact that newspapers are
more careful to get the truth than
any other class of people. They
feel their responsibility and they
insist upon all their reporters
getting the facts.
Very few papers color their
news. Some of them color their

I In substance, in another place, Peter wrote: "Grace and
peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God
whereby ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having
escaped the corruption that is m the world through lust. And
besides this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and

health and full life and solid growth. j
Civilization has been built on the principles of optimism

world, and the United States is above all others a progressive
nation. That was shown conclusively in the results of last
Tuesday's election, and this showing will prove one of the best
things that lever happened to all our people, including even the
nisguided pessimists and crape hangers. j ;

ed as sacred. Where newspapers
do not tell the truth the fault lies
in lack of information.
The Monnt Angel News dis
courses on this as follows:
yon can not believe what you read
tn the newspapers. That may be
so. But It Is not the newspaper
that Is to blame necessarily. How
ever good the intentions of the
newspaper may be, If its inform
ants are untruthful and unreliable,
what is published will be disap
pointing. . .
"It is paramount to a truth
ful newspaper that ' those who
furnish it information be depend
able. It is often very difficult
to get the truth for publication
because the paper must rely upon
the information It gets from oth
ers, and it is not always possible
to verify the data offered as! it
should be. ? : '
It is not intended here that
newspapers need an apology or an
alibi in the mass or matter they
print from week to week. A very
large per cent of it is reliable.
Yet there is a duty resting upon
the general public with respect
to the reliability of news that is
easily overlooked If not entirely
Ignored. Newspapers must depend
upon folks In general for their
information which is printed as
news. Folks, therefore, must not
be too ready to condemn the press
for what they themselves are re
sponsible. 1 j
A nationally known clergyman
in speaking of the press says:
'The average newspaper man tells
the truth. He wants to tell the
truth, and it is a matter of getting
the truth to him. Give him the
truth and' you will see what's
printed. I've taken editors into
my confidence times without nam-
At least three different interests are looking to the building
of a beet sugar factory in Salem !
And oar major development efforts ought j to be concen
trated on this; next to flax; and linen factories, and followed by
starch factories. All these things will have direct benefits.
Flax bolls make splendid stock feed I
And so do both the pulp of beet sugar factories and the
leaves of the sugar beets. ?The leading sugar magazine, "Facts
About Sugar," in its current issue says that in Utah and Colo
rado there; is now a demand for dried beet pulp exceeding any
thing previously known. Interests fattening steers and lambs
have reserved increased allotments of the pulp; and these people
are using ind paying high prices for beet tops averaging $10
and. more per acre. ; j

THE DISCLOSURE THE MAN
At Dr. Pettlt's pronouncement
that he did not know the nature
of the drug which I had brought
man -Smith, lying bound in the
corner of the room, and surprised
in his watchful eyes a flash of
malevolent glee. But in another
instant their expression changed.
; It became apprehensive, almost
cringing,; and I only had to shift
my eyes to Lillian's face to see
the reason for the transition, r
She was leaning forward in her
chair, fixing him with a glare as
coolly intent and devoid of emo
tion as that of an entomologist
studying some rare insect. And
then, slowly, with an effect of
casualness, Lillian, shifted her
gaze to Dr. Pettit, and said with
an apparent nonchalance:
"That - is very sad for young
Chester, and also for Mr. Smith
who in another thirty seconds will
be suffering from the same ail
ment, i Would you oblige me by
leaving the room for a minute or
two. Dr. Pettit?" .
She turned to the mantel upon
which lay the small stiletto-like
knife with which Smith had struck
npon young Chester, and which
we knew held poison upon it's
surface. I realized her, reason for
asking Dr. Pettit to leave the
room. She did not wish to Involve
him in the action she was con
templating, and which she knew
he would feel compelled to pre
vent if he remained.
Dr. Pettit Aids f
The physician gave a distinct
start, the most noticeable depar
ture from his frozen professional
dignity which I have ever seen
then, evidently realizing the ad
vantage of "seeing nothing,
speaking nothing, hearing noth
ing," he bowed stiffly and walk
ed out of the room, closing the
door after him. .
"So sorry to inconvenience you,
Mr. Smith," Lillian's voice was
courteously, solicitlous as she ad
vanced toward him, the! poisoned
knife held gingerly in her hand,
"but - since the ; only antidote for
this poison Is a drug so rare that
our physician does not know about
It, I 'have no' alternative but to
give Mr. Chester a companion in
his trouble. Will you have this
on the right cheek or the left?"
I stared at her, fascinated. She
waa as airily perfunctory as if she
were asking "how many lumps"
at a crowded charity tea. But i
realized that unless Smith acted
more quickly than he ever had
done in his life before, she would
make good her words.
That Smith realized her deter
mination. I knew also, as I saw
tiny beads of water standing on
his forehead, the agonized capit
ulation in his eyes.
"I am a physician. -1 can use
this," he said quickly. "But I must
have my hands free."
"I Shall Need Him"
sV Lillian, smiled significantly.
L thought on'd seejthe lifht
she said. "But my Ingenious friend
there's nothing doing in the band
freeing line until Dr. Pettit says
so. He is an exceedingly able cit
izen, and you will be able to give
him the necessary directions for
the use of this. Are you reaay?" .
Her eyes narrowed to pin-points
as she snapped the question at
him, and Smith bowed his head in
"I will do whatever you say,"
he replied sullenly,
; "You're a wise gentleman,'
Lillian retorted, walking quickly
to the door as she spoke, and
summoning Dr. Pettit,
"This man Smith," she said
crisply, "says he is a physician
and understands; this drug. You
will soon be able to ascertain if
he is faking. Please question him
while I get the two operatives in
here. Then if you need him up
in young Chester's room they
can carry him up there.",
She went swiftly through the
door, and Dr. Pettit with equal
quickness crossed the room to
amun s siae. " -t
"This is not to be taken Intern
ally for poison In an external
wound," he said with decision.
"No, no," Smith's tone was con
temptuous. "It Is a most recent
discovery,- a serum, in fact so re
cent that I am surprised the hos
pital had it.'
xvever mind that now." Dr.
feint said peremptorily. "There
Isn't time. Tell me just how I
must use this."
The quick colloquy Which fol
lowed has scant meaning for me,
because it was couched in medical
language. Dr. Pettit turned grave
ly to Lnlian when she re-entered
me room bringing with her the
two stalwart government opera
"I shall need" him." he said
succinctly. ; "Have him broueht

the attempt at St. Paul proves a
success, the plan. Is to have the
