" ' EducatorsSidestep Washington FTIHE malcontents who are busv seekinc to oust Chancellor JL Kerr from the Oregon system of higher education should take a look at the University of Washington where the re gents are unable to secure a first-class educator for the posi tion because of the repute of politics which attaches to the Office. Dr. Suzzalld, one of the greatest educational leaders to serve the northwest was summarilly ousted through the ukase of a time-serving governor. His successor, Dr. Spen cer was a political stop-gap who was dropped from the pay roll when the Hartley reign, was over. Regents are made to walk the plank at the behest of the high command. At the present special session of the legislature a bill has passed the senate providing that regents of higher in stitutions may not be dismissed by the governor save after hearing of sworn charges by three superior court judges. In the debate on the question Senator Todd of King county, de-" dared: "We're in a position where we can't get a president for the university. The regents have interviewed 1 2 men in the east for the position. After the applicants had studied the record and learned that the last four presidents had been removed through - political intrigue, they didn't care for the job. "Any man who has a good job In the east would be a plain damn fool to take a job at the university. Once we had a univer sity now we have a kindergarten. Eight men are teaching 400 students in the law scool.' The same thing would apply to Oregon if the blind maK evolence of faction is permitted to sway the deliberations of the board of higher education. What Oregon needs is to; compose herself; and what the institutions and their com munities need is cooperative effort to restore higher educa-i tion in the state. We are confident that at his years the chan cellor will retire when the immediate task of organization is completed and when the state may then with confidence in vite strong leadership for his successor. Continuous agita tion now not only disturbs the institutions now but jeopar dizes their future success. LaGuardia s Cabinet MAYOR-ELECT LaGUARDIA has announced his ap pointments for the officials to assist him in the admin istration of affairs in New York when he takes office in Jan uary. He was elected on a fusion ticket, and has picked his subordinates from many political breeds, chiefly party half breeds like himself Republicans, democrats, socialists, f us 'ionists are in the list; but they are all listed as liberals, as might be expected of a man like LaGuardia who was a party rebel in congress. LaGuardia with, his cabinet should be able to give New York an honest and clean and reforming administration, something it sorely needs. Not since John Purroy Mitchell two decades ago was mayor of the city has the grip of Tam many been broken. Assisting LaGuardia in the "new deal" for New York are his appointees, which the Pathfinder de scribes as follows: "Robert Moses, commissioner of parks, is a Smith-Republican; Prof. A. A. Berle, Jr., city chamberlain, was a member of President Roosevelt's brain trust; Paul Blanchard, commis , Sloner of accounts, la a former Socialist; Irvtng Ben Cooper, accounts counsel, was Judge Samuel Sea bury 's assistant in the , Walker investigation and a Democrat; Paul Windels, corporation counsel, Is an Independent Republican; William Hodson, com missioner of public welfare, has no political affiliations of any kind: Langdon Post, a major figure in the fusion movement, is the new tenement house commissioner, MaJ. Gen. John F. O'Ryan, police commissioner, and John S. McElllgott, fire com - missioner,"" Efficient EFFICD3NCY has been highly refined at the motor license division of the secretary of state's office. Secretary Hoss is constantly alert for operating improvements which will reduce the cost and speed up the service. With the system now in vogue there is very little delay in obtaining a renewal f license. Remember the long sheet one had to fill out a few years ago, repeating information the division already had, and thus cumbering its files with additional waste paper? Now the old license is used for the application blank. The in formation is there, and reference is easy to the old files. With a $5 fee the division has to hold down its administra tive costs to leave something for the highway funds. Secre tary Hoss and Carl Gabrielson, head of the division, deserve much credit for the fine system they have developed.

Like anything in tht way of mechanical construction, it may be defective. This may be due to the use of in ferior material, not putting It properly tcfeth er, or it may be the result of con stant wear and tear. Contrary to the popular belief, "hernia", or "rupture-, as It ia commonly called, is not a disease. It is a defect due to muscular weakness. This weaknam avlarta Dr. Copeland in several locations of the body, mch as around the umbilicus or "belly button", and in the groin. As a rule, the defect is present at birth, but It is not detected until adult life. It may disappear during the development of the body, but usually the weakness becomes more and more marked. The rupture ls Increased by manual labor, especially work that requires sndden and force ful exertion, like lifting. "Dread Knife" I am glad to say that hernia Is no longer neglected as it was in former years. Ia those days the victims of hernia avoided the necessary opera tion. They dreaded the knife" and resorted to the use of a mechanical appliance called a truss. The trusses are likely to be uncom fortable. They often cause more pain than an operation and rarely, if ever, cure or have any permanent valuable effect on the rupture. In fact, many surgeons believe that in some cases it ls more harmful to wear a truss than It is to leave the rupture alone. But do not neglect a rupture. Bear In mind the operation for the cor rection of this defect is a simple one and not to be feared. It Is danger ous to delay since it may become necessary to have an emergency op eration. This occurs when loops of Intestine become caught in the her nial sac. This causes what is called "strangulated hernia" and requires Immediate operation. In such cases the convalescence is prolonged and more difficult than that following a simple hernia operation. Early Operation Urged i am often asked, "when is the best time to perform an operation for rup ture in a child r If the health of the child is good and he has devel oped normally the operation may be performed as early as the fifth year. In cases of underweight and under nourishment, it Is best to delay the operation until the child Is well and strong. Consult with your doctor about this simple operation. It Is unwise to carry this handicap through life. Bear In mind that the best results obtained by operation are those per formed in early life. Perhaps you are unaware of hav ing this physical defect When next you visit your doctor ask him whether you show any evidence of K. This can easily be determined by a routine physical examination.

J. -HENDRICKS Journal of Rogue River war, of 1855: s s s (Continuing from yesterday:) The total U S. military force of the department of the Pacific at the beginning of 1855 was 1200 dragoons, infantry and artillery of which 335 were stationed in Oregon and Washington; but oth ers were' under orders for the Pa cific coast. The army bill had failed to pass congress, and only through the smuggling of a section into the general appropriation bill provid ing for two more regiments of cavalry and two of infantry wa3 any Increase of the army made possible; this was accomplished by Delegate Lane and the rest of the delegation from the Pacific; and it was further provided that arms should be distributed to the militia of the territories revert ing to the terms of an act dating back to 1808, arming the militia of the states. . 1. The able General Joel Palmer, superintendent of Indian affairs for Oregon, was able in October, 1854, to assure the tribes with whom he had made treaties that they had been ratified by con gress, although with some amend ments to which they gave their assent with reluctance. One of these allowed other tribes to be placed on their reservation, an other consolidated all the Rogue River tribes Into one two intru sions offensive to them, and, in their jealous natures, resented with intense bitterness. S 'm Palmer had intended to remove the Indians of the Willamette val ley east of the Cascades, but found them unwilling to go and tribes men on the east side unwilling to receive them, on account of their diseased condition. So he gathered them into the Grand Rond reservation beyond Sheridan, Oregon, much to the disgust of the settlers of that dis trict; the reservation land extend ing to the coast country around Siletz. These were the first treaties with Oregon country Indians since the crude agreements made by Dr. Elijah White in 1843. But now General Palmer, Oregon superin tendent of Indian affairs, and Gov. 1. 1. Stevens, performing the same duties for Washington ter ritory,' then Including the part that became Idaho, started out to make treaties with the tribes east of the Cascades. But that ls a long, long-story, and parts of It a bloody one. mm While General Palmer, in 1855, was absent on that business be yond the ranges, great trouble was again brewing in southern Oregon. Following some minor disturb ances, on June 1, Jerome Dyar and Daniel McKaw were murder ed on the road between Jackson viUe and Illinois river. On vari ous pretenses, the Indians of that district roamed oft the reserva tion, and In June a party of them made a descent on a mining camp, killing several men and capturing valuable property, and a volunteer company calling themselves the "Independent Rangers' was or ganized at Wait's mill ia Rogue river valley, and went in pursuit of the guilty renegades the first such organization since the 1853 treaty was signed. The agent n the reservation no titled Capt, Smith of Fort Lane, who rounded up the strays and herded them back onto the reservation, where they were safe. But Capt. Smith missed one bunch, and the "Rang ers" chased them into the moun tains, there was a skirmish, and one Indian 'was killed, and also a white man named Philpot and several horses wounded. In August a white man sold a bottle of whisky to some strolling Indians from the reservation, and they attacked a party of miners on -the Klamath river, killing John Pollock, Wm. Hennessey, Peter Heinrich, Thomas Gray, Ed ward Parrish, John L. Fickas, F. D. Mattice, T. D. Mattlce and two other men known as Raymond and Pedro. Several Indians were killed in the fight. A company of. volunteers, or ganized on the south side of the Siskiyous, led by Wm. Martin, went to the reservation and de manded the surrender of the mur derers; Capt. Smith refused, on technical grounds he could not deliver persons charged with crime to a merely voluntary as semblage of men. Late, however, some arrests were made on a re quisition from Siskiyou county. S w Another affair in August pro duced a strong feeling against the regular soldiers even more than the Indians. An Indian shot at and wounded James Buford, near the mouth of Rogue river. Ben Wright, the agent, delivered the Indian to the sheriff of Coos coun ty, who, having no Jail, trusted him to a squad of soldiers to be taken to Fort Orford and placed in the guardhouse. While the canoe in which were the prisoner and his guards was passing 'down the river to a place of encamp ment, it was followed by Buford, his partner Hawkins and a trader named O'Brien, determined to give the Indian no chance of es cape through the sympathy of the military authorities. They fired on the canoe, killing the prisoner and another Indian. The fire was returned by the soIZtiers, killing two of the white men and mor tally wounding the third. Indignation aroused against the military by this affair was intense. There was in the air a threat to fight both soldiers and Indians. Sept. 2, Greenville M. Keene of Tennessee was killed on the reser vation, while, with others, he was attempting to recover some stolen horses, and two of his party were wounded. Sept. 24, Calvin Fields of Iowa and John Cunningham of Sauve Island, Oregon, were killed and Harrison Oatman and Daniel Brltton wounded, while crossing the Siskiyou mountains with load ed teams, and their 18 oxen slain. Capt. Smith, ordering out a de tachment, was unable to make any arrests. On the 25th, Samuel War ner was killed near the same place. Early in October a party of reservation India ns were discover ed encamped near the mouth of Butte creek, on Rogue river, and it was suspected that among them were some who had been annoy ing the settlers. Oct. 8, a company of about 30 men led by J. A. Lup ton, surprised this camp before daybreak and killed 23 and wounded many before it was learned that most of them were non-combatants, or old men, wom en and children. Lupton was kill ed and 11 of his men wounded, a proof that the Indians were not all unarmed. But mutual hatreds were further aroused by the af fair. That night two men were killed and another wounded, who were in charge of a pack train at Jew ett's ferry. Jewett's house was fired upon, but no one was killed. A considerable number of Indians had gathered, apparently by con cert, near this place. V About daylight on the 9 th they proceeded down the river to Evans ferry, where they found Isaac Shelton of the Willamette valley on his way to Treka and mortally wounded him. Still fur ther down was the house of J. K. Jones, whom they killed; also mortally wounded his wife, and pillaged and burned his house. Be- CHAPTER THIRTY -fTOIB , f Once upstairs she wearily droppec off hex clothes, brushed hex hair: slowly, methodically and got into bed. The lights were off. She was lying la the dark. The agony of pain mad jealousy that she had ept at bay all evening was upon her. The scene la the livinr room re turned agaia- and again. She could i not escape it. A thousand times she saw dark lifting her hand to Idas it, saw ICarthe walking in the doer. How cheap ia retrospect her.eva part seemed! Clark was engaged and she had known it Yet she bad deberatjr sought U chana hint had used every saeane t engage his batareat, bad openly flsnr her self at bis bead. t ' He thotrghts swung inevitably to that pc4nt when she bad been about to tell dark everything, when she had wavered on the brink of con fessing her love for him. Uer cheeks burned in the darkness. Hew ska folly the man bad averted her cen- f ession. How quickly he bad offered friendship. . She turned and twisted, disgusted with, herself, ber pride in tatters. Presently she beard footsteps and roiees ia the hall outside. The ethers were coming upstairs. Some one knocked at her door. Patricia lay very still. "Patricia, someone called, "Pat ricia." It was Julian. "What do you want?" she re sponded daUy. "I'm ia bed." Tut on something, please. I'd like to talk to you." TouH have to wait till morn ing." He went away. After a while a deep silence fell upon the house. Suddenly Patricia sprang from bed, pulled on a negligee and went to the window. Leaning her elbows en the sOI she stared out into the star lit night. The Sound was a sheet of onyx silvered by moonlight, stirred by a wandering, vagrant breexe. Patri cia looked up at the dome of the sky sprinkled with millions of stars, slashed by a crescent moon. How cheap and petty seemed the strug gles of two girls for a single man. This girl could think of nothing else. "Clark could have loved me," whispered Patricia to herself. "I knew he coedd have." But he hadnt. He wouldn't. Things weren't planned that way. Marthe had everything. She would have this final glory. Some bright day in the fall Martha would" walk down a carpeted aisle with Clark. Marthe would kneel in her flutter ing veil and satin gown, would rise, would lift her lips for her first kiss as s wife. Patricia laid her head on the window sill. It was not fair that one girl should have so much, that another girl should have so little. How dif ferent her life and Marthe'a life had been. Marthe had had expen sive nurses, governesses, smart schools, trips to Europe. Patricia's own life seemed to pass before her eyes In a series of little pictures that were like stereopticon slides. She saw herself as a child of ten, shabby and eager, a gambler's daughter, waiting for ber father to come in from an aS night game. ' Had the cards been running? Tes or no? Even at ten she bad known the extreme Importance of her father's answer. She saw herself: again after his death, crushed with, grief and dazed, with worry, won- low this place was the house of J. Wagoner, an the way to It the Indians killed four men. Mr. Wagoner was absent from his home, having gone that morn ing to escort Miss Pellet, a tem perance lecturer from Buffalo, N. Y., to Sailor Diggings. The fate of Mrs. Wagoner and her 4 year old daughter was never certainly known, the house and all in it having been burned. She was a young and beautiful woman, well educated and refined. One story told by the Indians themselves was that she fastened . herself In her house, carefully dressed as If for a sacrifice, and, seating her self in the center of the sitting room with her child in her arms, awaited death, which came to her by fire. But others said, and prob ably with truth, that she was car ried off, and her child killed be cause it cried so much; that the mother refused to eat, and died of grief and starvation at "The Meadows." Capt. John M. WaUen afterward declared that two scalps captured from the Indians at the battle of Cow Creek in 1856 were Identified as those of Mrs. Wagon er and her child, the mother'a beautiful hair being unmistakable. So none of the Indian stories may be the actual truth. From the smoking ruins of the Wagoner home the Indians pro ceeded to the place of Geo. W. Harris, who being a little distance from his house and suspecting that they meant to attack him, ran quickly in and seized his gun. As they e tore .on with, hostile words, he shot one and wounded another from his. doorway, where he himself was shot down a few moments later, leaving his wife and daughter to defend them Belves, which they did for 24 hours, before help arrived.

Fifteen she was, and Eileen Sycott had needed a fourth to make up a table of bridge. Not that she had gambled then. It had been a job that paid ber fifty cents an hour. But she had gambled so often since. She had gambled at last with ber own good name. The pact with Julian Haverholt, as she viewed it now, was ne more, no less than that. She was thinking so hard of Julian just then that she saw him on the lawa below with a shock of surprise. It must be nearly two o'clock. Julian, costless, his white head bare, strolled out of the vision of her window and on across the moonlit gardens as casually as though it bad been eight in the morning. He had wanted to speak to her. About what? Suddenly Pat ricia determined to know. In a minute she had hurried into clothes, pulled on a soft little hat,! slipped into walking shoes. She was in the upstairs hall. Tho house was asleep. With no especial attempt at caution Patricia walked down the stairway, through the darkened foyer and out into the brilliant night. The grass was heavy with dew. The wind from the Sound was eooL j Julian was not in sight. All at once the expedition seemed silly. What Julian had to say could wait until morning. Patricia hesitated, glancing this way and that, half inclined to return to bed, Still she knew that she could not sleep. She strolled en, her eyes alert for a glimpse of the man. Her footsteps left tracks in the sparkling dew. ; Finally she caught a nicker of PASSES AT DM1 DAYTON, Dec. 29. George H.

Julian wat in the summer house. He was not alone. Marthe March was with him Patricia could not see her but shi heard Marthe say: "Come now, Julian. Tell the trutk for once in your wicked life. I know, I know that girl is not your niece. "Then you're wrong." "Oh, am I?" Julian must have kissed her then For, as she fled, Patricia heard thi other girl's low, exultant laugh She had heard that laugh before She knew it now. Weeks befon Marthe had left Julian's house a' four in the morning. Patricia hao heard that self-same laugh on thai so-well-remembered occasion. Sunday passed like a nightmare. There had been ' breakfast en the lawn under the trees, there had been a quick dip in a swimming pool as blue as a sapphire lake, there had been a polo game in the afternoon. They had all piled into cars to go to the field. Patricia had seen Clark, a cork helmet tilted rakishly across his burned, brown brow, a mallet held in his steady hand, riding with incredible grace, the star of bis chosen game. With the others she had cheered; for the first time she beard about mysteri ous things called'chukkers. It had been nothing.
