There has been a great deal satd
about low taxes anil inequitable as
segments, ami this thing and that on
the subject, but there has been but
little "said about the property that
escapes tho assessment entirely
A taxpayer was discussing the mat
ter yesterday and said that the bulk
of tho property of the county oscap
ed taxation entirely. He called at
tention to the immense wealth of the
county and then compared the total
as.-essed value with it. He showed
how many millions of dollars in cash
is actually possessed by citizens of
1,'matllla county, while the assess'
ment'rolls show that but a little- over
30,000 in cash is assessed. He call
od attention to the millions of bushels
of wheat produced here and the small
amount assessed. He spoke of the
wool, the barley, tho cattle, the
horses, the sheep, amU-wound up by
saying that the small man with his
little mite of an outfit in sight was
about the only one that is caught.
He explained the matter in this
way: He said that at the time the
property was subject to assessment,
men with large cash, either shifted it
cut of tho county, or swore they did
not have it; that the wheat crop was
rai.ied, harvested and sold when the
assessor came around; that the wool
was clipped and sold also; that tho
horses and cattle were shipped; that
the sheep were not In tho county, but
on some other range in some other
county, and so on down the line, until
-millions of property escaped taxation
He narrowed down by stating that
only the merchants, the farmers, the
bankers, Hhe mill men, the small stock
men who had their little herds about
their premises, and the small men
generally were caught.
If this is true, there is something
wrong somewhere. If it is true, the
bulk of property is escaping taxa
tion, and the very property that ought
to be taxed. It is tho property that
most speculation is made upon and
ought to bear Its portion of the bur
den with tho homemaker and the
small business man, struggling for
existence. But the question is a broad
one and the man who disentangles it
deserves a monument.
The printer's devil has practically
become a myth. He is often spoken
of now, but the "devil" himself does
not regard himself as a "devil" seri
ously, and none of the force on a pa
per In the country or otherwlso look
upon tho boy In the office today as
the "devil," as ho was looked upon
In olden times. Still, no one is
ashamed of tho "devil," or of being
called tho "devil."
In olden times ho was a hard-worked
"devil," but be occupied an honor
able and Important position. Ho was
tho right hand man of the man who
ruled tho community. Ho knew all
of tho secrets of tho office, did er
rands that brought him in contact
with the best people of tho place, and
while ho bore an usly name, went
raggod nnd his face and hands and
clothing were usually besmeared with
Ink, he was looked upon more with
envy than with contempt.
for his "victuals and clothes," as the
only compensation, just to get to oc
cupy the position. Then it took hard
work and good recommendations and
unswerving fidelity to hold the Job.
That ordinary boys did not get posi
tions in those times as printer's
uevlls" Is proved by tho fact that
all oT the greatest newspaper men
and greatest wielders of public opln
Ion In those days first served the
seven years' apprenticeship. In fact,
all of the great newspaper men of
those times came through that chan
nel. Hut the printer's "devil" of today Is
different. Ho is a short-lived person
age. He Is unknown in the city of
fices, though there aro a for.- of his
species in the small country offices.
Hut he Is only there for a week or
two before he develops from "devjl"
to printer or editor and publisher.

days than tney were in olden times,
or they were held back in those days.
A bright boy, with modern improve
ments in printing offices, may make
a better printer in two months now-
idays than the boys of old mado in
seven years. He would scorn the
idea of being seven years ip learning
anything. The average boy of today
would make an Edison or a Marconi
in that length of time, If he had such
instructors as those two great men,
and was held down to his work as
closely as was the printer's "devil" of
olden times.
No wonder it makes the printing of
fice boy of today smile when he Is
called a printer's "devil." From the
day he enters the office he expects
to be foreman, or own a paper of his
own in a few months, and he often
carries out his ambition.

a system; farming without vim;
farming without an object. It is an
abuse of tho profession.
Farming Is ono of the most Intri
cate sciences. It is not everybody
who can farm rightly. Usually what
a man falls at ovory othor calling, ho
rents a farm and expects a fortune to
ronio to him, no matter how he stum
bles through the profession.
Farming properly is co-operating
with providence. To know tho per
fect adaptation of crops to soil and
climate; to fertilize and cultivate
land to mnke It produce more nnd
more; to study plant life, the chemis
try of the soil, the result of nature's
laws in their various processes
nothing could nppoal more thrllllngly
to the thinking man! It is to under
stand nature, the great mother. It
la to live hand In hand with her; to
know her moods, her eccentricities,
her weaknesses and her triumphs, as
the mariner knows the sea. It Is to
bo guided by her voice In her fore
warnings. It Is to listen to her word
less language, to lay the ear to her
throbbing breast, and to feel tho pul
sations of her life currents, and, best
of all, to understand.
The farm of the Eastern Oregon
Experiment Station, at .Union, is a
scrap of Wonderland. It is tho farm
in its highest perfection, so far as con"
ditlons permit. Weeds are not to be
found. Fences are kept up. Fence
corners are clean. Every foot of land
Is producing something. The tools
are kept in place. Tho trees aro
