?' The Right to Vote
WE had a great electiorrrecently. Candidates were named
for important offices: senator, mayor, congressman,
presidential delegates, aldermen, county sheriff, state treas
urer. The election was well advertised. For weeks the voters
were subjected to a barrage of advertisements, radio address
es, personal appeals, cards, pamphlets, streamers, stickers,
placards. In spite of the Importance of the election and in
sjMte of the publicity it received in this county only 58.4 of
the registered voters voted in the election. Of the 27,361 who
were registered as eligible to vote only 15,980 participated.
This means there were about 11,000 in the county who failed
to1 vote.
. Manjr doubtless had good excuses. Some were absent on
journeys and failed to take absentee ballots. While the regis
tration list carries name3 of many who are no longer eligible
because of removal from the precinct there are hundreds of
others who have just failed to register.
j Why is it so small a percentage of voters actually cast
their ballots? Are they indifferent or just neglectful? Or do
they feel that one vote more or less counts for little and
''what's the use?" Germany in recent elections polled a far
higher percentage. Probably for the state, as a whole the per
centage at this election was higher than the average in ihe
past decade. The primary election is a newer institution. The
quadrennial election of a president is after all what gets peo
ple out to vote.
' There is a lot of berating the people who stay at home
from the polls as bad citizens. In truth they are indifferent
to their responsibilities and privileges as citizens. But so far
as changing the result is concerned it is only In case of a
very low vote or a very close vote that the result is affected
by the stay-at-homes. Usually the majority sentiment is re
flected accurately by the people who do vote; and if there
were a hundred per cent vote the result would be the same.
People would fight, bleed and die for the right to vote.
When they get it, thousands of them treat the privilege with
contempt.

Daily Health Talks
By ROYAL S. COPELAND, M. D.
ONE of the saddest sights we
see Is a child that is under
nourished and underweight.
While it seems unbelievable In this
present day of scientific study, we
cannot deny the
fact that many
children are
definitely un
derweight and
show signs of
malnutrition.
Con fronted
with these facts,
it is natural to
conclude that
they can be
traced to lack
of money with

not always true. Often it Is be
cause the wrong kind of food is
given, or because tne chud is per
mitted to exercise his own choice
of food, or to refuse the food he
H should have.
Children displaying such symp
toms come from the nomas ox the
very poor and the very rich. In
the homes of the very poor, where
there is a lack of sufficient and
proper food, the children are the
first to suffer.
Many wealthy children show
gigns of undernourishment, not be
cause proper and adequate food
cannot be obtained, but simply be
cause they are permitted to pick
and choose their food according
to taste rather than their needs.-
Undernourished children are un
derweight. They are irritable and
dre easily. ; Their posture is poor
and digestion faulty. The skin is
dry . and the hair is coarse and

this was taken up the river a few
miles and sheltered under a can
vas covering made from the sails
of the stranded ship.
The place thus occupied was
named Gardiner, in honor of the
owner of the ship and goods and
on the same spot now stands the
city of Gardiner.

At the entrance of the river, on
the north bank, Winchester,
Payne ft Co. had laid out their
first town, which they called
Umpqua City. They passed up the
stream, finding the shipwrecked
Yankees in camp at Gardiner.

At the mouth of Smith river
(named for Jedediah Smith), a
number of men were landed, who
began getting out piling timber to
be shipped back to San Francisco
on the return trip of the Kate

The others continued up the
river to Scottsburg, where they
found Captain Levi Scott already
in possession of a town site. They
laid out a town adjoining his lo
cation and embracing a tract gen
erously donated by him for that
purpose. This was the portion of
Scottsburg called the "lower
town." which succumbed to the
power of the flood in the winter
of 1881-2, and is now a sandy
waste.

A number of the party went up
the stream to Elk creek, and laid
contract all the ailments to which
they are exposed.
Lack of appetite and a dislike
for certain foods are other causes
of undernourishment in children.
When important foods like mny
and vegetables are omitted from
the diet, undernourishment results,
and to overcome this it is neces
sary to create a desire for the
essential foods.
Many children dislike T"1V,
which is indeed unfortunate, be
cause milk is one of the most Im
portant foods. It is essential for
every child, but its use should not
be forced. Never scold or punish
a child who refuses milk, for a
child who has been punished for
not drinking milk acquires an in-'
tense dislike for this food.
Spinach is another food that1
many children dislike because of
unpleasant associations. When first
served it may have been improper
ly cooked and unpalatable. Spinach
is delicious only when properly
prepared. Be sure it Is' thoroughly
cleaned and cooked for fifteen to
twenty minutes, then the addition
of butter and a pinch of salt
makes this nutritious dish inviting
Adults should never discuss food
in the presence of children, for

food, the child wiU undoubtedly

She mored into the aparUnentl

ermiaaioa to have a small upright
piano. It was the only thing they
ever really quarreled over.
"A grand would have grren us a
little class! But that thingugh!"
1 know, it Isnt very beautiful.
But IVe got to live cheaply. You
dont know how poor I am. The
only clothes I have are the grand
evening things Madame Nahhnan
gave me, and X cant wear them on
the street.''
Maxine grinned. "Oh, something
will turn up!"
Back home in Woodlake, if she
had read about a girl coming to
New York, and falling iato the sort
of luck she had had, she wouldn't
have believed it. You either had
luck, or you didn't. Maxine, who
practically lived by her wits, being,
strangely enough, a technically
good girl, took everything, and
gave nothing but her personality.
She and her small circle were
the sort whom traveling salesmen
from Columbus and all points west
invariably meet and take to dinner,
-a show, and roof cabaret after
ward. The number of blind dates
that Maxine acquired was some
thing that never failed to astound
Lily Lou, who steadfastly refused
to accompany her.
"Why not? Free meaL good
show I make 'em get the best
seats, and pick the showsl Dance
a bit afterward if they can dance,
eat some more, and then leave 'em.
Not so bad for a plain looking
girl ? And you with your looks. . . ."
LQy Lou laughed. "No, I couldn't.
I just couldn't do it. I I don't
know Early bringing up, I guess."
The next few months would be
ghastly. Even doing all her own
laundry, and all the cleaning in' the
apartment, and cutting her food
down to almost nothing, she didn't
see how she'd manage.
Gwin was staying at his Long
Island home during the summer
months, and only came in one day
a week to teach. Lily Lou hesi
tated when he made out her first
weekly check. I cant take a
week's pay for a day's work," she
said dejectedly.
"You must live. How much are
you paying for the baby's board?"
"Fifty."
"And your rent?"
"There's none. The apartment
belonged to a girl who who mar
ried or something, and went to
Europe, and the lease isn't up until
November, so Maxine and I "
"I see." Gwin wiped away a
smile.
"So there's just the food, and
one doesn't want to eat much this
hot weather. I spend quite a lot on
carfare though to get out to Ja
maica Park to see the bubchen, but
I m hoping to get church work "
He wheeled on her sharply. "I
wont coach you if you force your
voice!
"I wont force it. HI be careful."
"Careful, eh! IVe told you what
happens to coloraturas who break
down!"
"But Gwin. Ill be careful. It
isnt as though I were just begin
ning. I know how to keep my
voice forward now
"All right. Choose between the
church and that Metropolitan
chorus idea you and Tony were
raving about."
"Choose between them! Why,
one s a thing to do for pay, and
one s a chance to break in

"But even you said I had to eat!"
She went home, more shaken
than she had been since the old
days when she first faced the bub
chen's coming. If she could only
have stayed with Nahlman until
summer was over . . . But no use to

is at the head of navigation, but
below it are many prospective
towns, beautifully pictured on pa
per. There are two ferries on the
Umpqua, and a road from Win
chester to Scottsburg. Winchester
lies on both sides of the Umpqua
river about five miles from the
forks, and Is located on favorable
ground, thickly timbered. General
Lane's claim adjoins it on the
south. The city has been laid out
in lots' and Is fast becoming a
mart of trade. The main road to
the canyon passes through Win
chester. Major Kearney Is now
exploring for a road erst of this,
and Jesse Applegate and Levi
Scott are with him as guides. They
are now near Table Rock on Ro

And after his regular classes

lessons costing twenty dollars the

Oh, how did anyone ever do it?
How did girls ever become opera

There was no one else. Maybe
she could write home. Perhaps
they could advance her something,
and then when Uncle Eph's estate
was settled. . . . Besides, this would
be the last time she'd have to ask.
Perhaps they could spare her just
a few dollars, say for two months,
until Gwin started full time classes
again. . . . She got up and wrote out
the message, night letter.
The answer was waiting for her
at noon the next day:
"Sorry to have to tell you la

want to alarm you, but mother has
had the flu and now pneumonia.
Asks for you constantly. Wish you
could come, but no use to consider
it if you are broke. Win let you

And right on the heels of that:

asks for you constantly. All the

finesse the declarer's Q, Y wUl
have to lose to B's K, and later
on he win have to lose another
club trick to either B's J or A's
10, which wiU put the contract
down by one trick.
If Y first takes a round of
trumps, to force discards, it will
not help his cause. Then B can
strip down to the "K-J of clubs and
the 10 of hearts.
The only way that Y can win
three of the remaining four tricks
is as follows: lead the 9 of clubs;
if A. plays his 10, overplay with
dummy's Q; in case A plays nor
mally, and declines to cover with
his 10, let the 9 run. In the latter
event B must play his J to win
the trick; if the 10 and Q are
played B must win with his K. In
either event B will be in the lead
and his side cannot win another
trick. If B ada back a club, both
tricks will be won by Y's cards ef
that suit If B leads his heart,
dummy can trump while Y discards
his only club that fails to be the
highest remaining card of that
suit Mr. Lockridge played the
hand as described, and won his
twelve tricks.
