A LENTEN MEDITATION
By the Rev. Charles Stelzle
Scientific knowledge rereals God.
- It does not shorten the arm of God it lengthens it.
It rereals the pnrpose of God.
It Indicates the partnership of God and man in fulfilling His plans
for the complete redemption of the world.
God is the God of Love.
Bnt He is also the God of mathematics, of mechanics, of geology,
of astronomy, of biology.
He Is not the God of a haphazard world. v
Eren God Himself obeys His own laws.
The working of so-called "miracles' means simply the introduction
-of higher laws.

If our city council cannot agree upon the matter of the
submission of the matter of taking a vote on municipal owner
ship of the water works, let the people take the matter up
directly, by initiative. There is time yet, for the special
election. Salem's splendid growth must not be hampered by
inaction and bickerings and the sloth of general neglect on
the part of any group. The whole people are concerned, not
represented by any clique or faction.

The Columbia Basin Irrigation league is making progress,
the legislatures of three of the four interested states having
taken action Washington, Idaho and Montana. Oregon must
come into line. The consummation of this great project will
mean the reclamation of millions of acres, and the harnessing
of vast water powers. White coal is the biggest asset of these
four states. The use of all our water powers, and all our
water that is running, to waste for irrigation, will make this
northwest corner of the United States, looking out upon the

charivari, relic of the mob spirit and disgusting symptom of
the hick lack of culture, still exwts
, And in its most bucolic form
Where, not long since, the door of a bride and groom was
broken down and the ordinarily decent women and men and
boys and girls of the countryside, turned into a rabble of
howling dervishes, yelled and screamed and beat tin pans and
shot off guns and generally made such an outlandish jazz of
awful noises as to frighten the timid bride into a state of
nervous prostration from which she did not recover for
And actually turned another woman of the household into
a condition of insanity.
This spectacle ought to be enough to ban the charivari

Those ordinarily good people ought tq be ashamed of
themselves. But they are not. They have carried on in the
game manner since, when some neighbor boy and girl have
i entered into the holy bonds of matrimony.
It is natural and right that they should so heed the in
stincts of the race and follow the orderly rules of decent
, society . ..
For which they ought to be commended and treated like

When they get married, that is their business. It is not
the business of prying and snooping neighbors, such as is
depicted in the Russian mob turned brutes in the screen of
the Volga Boatman.
The fact is, the charivari, as practiced in the neighborhood
mentioned, is a thing that ought to be frowned on by every
man with the instincts of a gentleman and every wdhian with
the qualities of a lady, and every boy and girl trained to have
such instincts and qualities.

there are "folks who are decent and law abiding and kindly

' And commenting on this fact a writer in the! Los Angeles
Times says: "The vocational school has developed mightily
in the last five or six years and is now recognized as the
great, factor in determining the future of America. The
young men are getting lined up for their careers and are
getting their apprenticeship along with their tuition. This
gives them a 'lead of a year or two over the records of their
fathers. If a good start means a good finish the country
should have something to be proud of."

PASO, Texas, Mar. 17.
