A WORD WITH "BLUE" MEN.
An exchange calls Monday a "blue
day." Complains about a scarcity of
news, dullness of brain, uncertainty
about a starting point, and weak
pulse. Says there's nothing doing.
Groaks about the lack of activity in
business. Says people are not stir

clal reaction, some dim spectre of
panic he fancies Is hovering over the
Its a disease that attacks newspa
pers. Its symptoms are a falling
nerve, a tired feeling In every column,
& lack of lustte. a wheedling, whining,
complaining tone that is out of tune
with the symphony of the world.
There is no "blue day" in a live
jtown. There Is no scarcity of news
In a newsy office with a willing man
at a capacious pencil.
It's nerve, not news, that Is scarce.
It's the man, and not the day, nor the
'.profession, that is "blue."
There's no -use calling the profes
slon names. It has enough to bear
-now. No use croaking at your town.
,It will grow and forget you In spite
of your walling.
It's your place in society to paint
3Ionday and your town another color.
Blue. Is a good color in the right
place. Nothing is more invigorating
to a gloomy brain than a heaven-sent
.streak of blue sky. Nothing fills
space so admirably as the blue smoke
of action. The electric blue of ener
getlc business friction, which warms
a community with life, is sacred to
the gods of industry.
But heaven forbid the "blue" man.
In the category of hues he is the
hoodoo, tho hindrance, the "scare
crow" of the race. One blue man
"discolors" a town. The color is
catching. It goes In streaks through
society. It changes hopeful smiles
into graveyard moans.
If you feel the symptoms approach
ing, go outside the door, into the brac
ing morning air. Walk down tho
main street with your head up, even
if you do owe everybody In town.

The best feature about - these local
organizations is that they are compos

men of the different communities.
They have a; deeper Interest in the
country than can be measured by
figures. It is their home.
Judge Fitz Gerald told the tax-pay-ers
of this city and county some
plain, unvuinished truth, in a short
interview in last Satuiday's East Or
egouiau. In speaking of the alarm
ing increase of drunkenness among!
Indians, he said some severe peual-
ties should be meted out to those1
-who openly violate the laws against i
selling ilnuor to these people. It Is
a direct burden on the people to sup
port the Indians that are sent to jail
for drunkenness. They have no
money with which to pay fines. The
laws of the land are -violated and the
tax-payer as usual, pays the bill. The
other fellow gets the profit.
