On February 12, 1927, at the invitation of a republican
congress, Mr. Upshaw, then a member, delivered mthe tow

reviews and one of the ablest speeches ever made, reviewing
dry legislation and temperance woric in ims cwuuuj, "u
Tn'hi introductory remarks, he said: "Is it not a far
cry to the well-springs of sentiment for a son of Georgia, a
son of the south the son of a Confederate soldier, to find a
wealth of patriotic inspiration in the birthday of Abraham

Mr. Upshaw is the kind of man who might be rotten
egged in Mississippi by one from the lowest ranks of the
horde of lawi breakers and booze hounds who are supporting
Al Smith because he is "wet," for the conduct and character
of whom any man running for office ought to blush over the
very fact of his support. It might also be said truthfully
that a lot of gin-soaked colored men in this country are sup
porting Al Smith, with the hope of getting gin cheaper ana
more of it, and Mr. Upshaw knows this.
Is it any wonder that many southern men and women
gag at this?
It almost reconciles many people in the rest of the coun

of the colored people down there of the right to vote, and
thus gives the south more electoral votes than they have a
right to, on the basis of total population.

that prunes have the other health

are laxative and the acid in them
is a stimulant; that prune pulp ia
good for babies; that they are a
great breakfast food for children.
Then Miss Williams gives a lot
of recipes for cooking prunes; as
for instance whole wheat prune
muffins, prune baking powder
bread; prune gingerbread, prune
brown hetty, spiced prune broaa
pudding, prune cobbler, prune
steamed graham pudding, sterling
sauce, eggless prune fruit cake !
prune cake, prune filling for cake.i
Then she gives prune menus
for breakfasts, suppers and din

could have these dishes set before
the whole people of the United
States, it would take all the avaif
able land in the Willamette Val-!
ley to grow enough prunes for the j
' American market alone. And good
health would wait on appetite, too.
Again speaking of prunes. The
Jory dryer Pearcy is using for
washine and drying walnuts for

west corner of Bush and Commer

in 1893, H. S. Jory. & Son pub

nurseryman and fruit grower, who
said among other things, "if there
is anything better I would like to

This catalogue, with the adver

NEW YORK, Oct. 13 At-last
New York is becoming excited
about polities. As in other parts
of the country, party lines are be
ing broken. 1
Pity the poor old regulars
among the voters, with the Repub
lican Sun supporting Franklin D.
Roosevelt, democrat, for governor,
over Attorney General Albert Ot
tinger, republican. The Sun Is
supporting Herbert Hoover for
president. As is the Telegram,
but. like the Sun, it's for Roose
velt for governor.
Franklin D. Roosevelt is not to
be confused with Theodore Roose
velt, son of the late president, who
ran on the republican ticket
against Smith for governor, aJ
was defeated. Franklin D. Is of
different branch of the family.
New York politicians say there
is a "whispering" campaign on up
state. As one paper puts it, the
whisperers' are said to be
against smitn Decause, ne is a
Catholic, and Ottinger because he
is a Jew. But! don't place much
credence Jn it, for Colonel Herbert
H. 'Lehman, whom the democrats
nominated for lieutenant govern
or, also is a Jew. These asser
tions merely denote that New
York City at last realizes there is
a political campaign on. But it
took the -state conventions to con
vinee this city, which doesn't see
much beyond the Hudson.
Obsceno plays will be rarer on
the Broadway stages. Mae West's
most recent experience with her
"Pleasure Man" indicates that.
The new law against obscene
plays is projed workable. Mae,

The concensus is that Mae West

means that plays this season will
toe the mark.

not one had aroused an emotion

Not only are plays at a dead

Sir Thomas Browne wrote that
"gravestones tell truth scarce, for

A Hundred Years
A hundred years is not a long

not a man or women in the world
today will have any direction of
the world's problems or any in

is put upon us the profound duty
of preparing for the future, of
training youth to carry on, of
handing down to generations to
come the little that we have acquired.

end of the race, of life is a poor
standard for us to be judged by.

Could there be a more empty
pleasure than to contemplate what
people are likely to say about the
amount of money you left, after
you are out of the world? The
kind words will be spoken, not for
the misers who left fortunes, but
for those who gave away fortunes
while they lived. Making our
live count now gives real satis,

we're gone, that we left a lot of
money will give us no comfort.

What a comfort it could be if
so-called orators, boring us with

Y own first impression of

that of some great imper

of student officers, and a kind of
legend; a supernaturally able per

slight stoop which, yo ufelt, cam-;
from excess muscular develop

contemplated the damaged mem

to one side, a trick of attitude
which marks hi mto this day. He
had mouse-colored hair, as
straight as an Indian's, and hazel
eyes so contemplative that they
seemed dreamy. He stood with
one foot thrust forward, jingling
the keys in his pocket; a little

its force in inner mirth before It
came to the surface. I cannot
remember that I have ever heard
him laugh "out load." Then and
there, I suppose, I put myself un
