DRUGGISTS WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 1!03 Get land! Get lamt: TImt is the cry of the century, "the shib boleth of the world! That Is why Venezuela Is invaded, Si beria conquered, and China par celed to the kings! Tho day Is coming when thoso who hae no homes will stand in awe and gaze upon the princely holdings -of the combines that own mil lions of acres entire counties, province; and political divisions rhtch they cauuot occupy nor use. Di II. 1C. IVvtrsoms THE FUTURE IS SECURE. Tho people of Pendleton and Uma tilla county are pioud ol tho Com mercial Association of this city, and without any intention of throwing lwquets, or passing empty compli ments, they give this body of ener getic business men the plain, unas- Bunting assurance that public senti ment and individual good will is with it. first, last and all the time. A taxpayer of this county who lis tened to'-the earnest discussion by the Commercial Association, at its meeting last night, of the most vital Interests of the people, said after the meeting:. "The future of Umatilla county Is .eecure." Amen to that sentiment. Secure, indeed. Composed of the men who have mado tho city ami-county what they are, the association lias the expert-' ence, judgment and broad busines3 sagacity to malse tho future better. Mo niai-hir.es for the gratification of the few. It should be repealed. T!"'re is no room on statute books for licenses to perpetrate fraud, How will the repeal of the stone nid timbci land law effect Oregon and other Western states? "It will take two of the three remain ing land privileges away from the ris ing generation, it will narrow down the opportunities of tho young man who llnds 1-lmself in need of a home, to the Military homestead law. It will mean that tho great and tracts. Mtho timbered mountain land and the stony pasture land of the public do n-aln can only be urqulted by the! c.xerrlse of the homestead right and that, under more rigid restrictions (ban have formerly prevailed, if the 1 ona fide residence clause is enforced and the lenient nnd highly important leave of absence permit Is revoked. as has been insinuated by the interi or department. If these acts have been abused by timber and land sharks, congress should strengthen the laws, to pro tect honest settlors and punish thoso guilty of crooked transactions, The right of the people should not be swept away from them In a sort of retaliation for the acts of a few un principled men. Tho future should be considered, end the rights of innocent settlers whose only means of acquiring homes is through the exercise of laud privil eges, should outweigh tho desire of congress to puulshe the authors of is olated cases of fraud by taking away the very birthright of the masses. No section of. the country deplores the land frauds as deeply as the West. No section of the country is as desirous of seeing the guilty pun ished as the West and congrea.-j should study the situation well be tore making such a sweeping stroke pi eat Injur No section of the conn try Is free fiom Its .vexatious con fllcta.

The community is interested in these issues. They lie at the very heart of the business interests of TJmatllla county. When the people see the Commer cial Association take a matter In hand, they know that sume practical results will ensue. They know that wort: will be done; that roads will be Improved and that the e,vlls of tax ation, will be remedied If possible, and its burdens distributed upon all alike. There Is a just cause for pride In all the public-spirited work that has been done by this body of men. The community owes It a debt of gratl-'. tude, and moro than- that, the com munity owes it constant enthusiastic, willing support, aud encouragement. The tuture is secure. The Commer .clal Association has it in charge. The young men training with the veter ans, are learning lessons in business that will perpetuate the good work; nnd Insure the fulfillment of designs now being shaped by tho heads of these master spirits of the commu nity, j Oregon has .learned a lesson. Her sister states of the Northwest have also gained In wisdom. Land inves tigation Is earnestly desired. She asks one moro chance for life. Put the guilty grafters into the sweat box, and make them feel the Iron hand of justice, but allow the people who are innocent to retain their priv ileges, and enjoy their just rights. It is safe to say that not more than one woman out of BOO is able to walk, stand, sit, breathe, or rest cor lectly; by correctly I mean normally, lor whatever act Is performed nor mally Is always correct. What'ls nor mal poise? Normal poise la natural poise, a poise of strength and confi dence; an erect, natural carriage of tlie Jiouy over a strong base or center. In standing this strong base or center should be always on the balls of the feet, of one or both feet as the case may be. Look at a child, a young child, be fore it has been coddled, pampered and squeezed out or its normal state. Jt does not have a sunken chest, pro truding abdomen and bent knee. Look at the average woman; If compelled to stand for five minutes tiie knee bends and she shifts uncom fortably from one foot to the other; ll compelled to stand for half an hour her face takes on a look almost of lardness, caused by the weariness filio is enduring. The logs become tiembly and she wants to sink. m m m The law of gravity Is such that It in natural for the heavier part to seek the earth, but tho laws of nature are also such that It is natural for tho V'ltal part 01 tho center to furnish the limbs of our body with sufflcient strengtli to do our bidding without ex cessive fatigue. A weak person, there fore, cannot be well poised. Whence comes our strength? from the air we breathe, from the food and drink taken Into the stomach, and from the exercise that wo take to distribute that nourishment. The Place to Save Money As strength Is possible only tlnough the medium of 'the vital organs, It Is Imperative that these organs be kept always in a condition of normal ac tivity. Jt is obvious that thoy must not be squeezed out of place, neither must they be allowed to sag, and press one upon another. Pilgrim.
