The test rules to form a young
man are, to talk little, to hear
much, to reflect alone upon what
has passed In company, to dis
trust one's own opinion and
value others that deserve it.

President Roosevelt, so far, has
proved the wisdom of his adventur

He may gain the negro vote, but
he will certainly not hold the white

Governor-elect Chamberlain is
quoted as saying when, the matter of

"While I appreciate the good will
of those persons who would honor me
In this manner. I do not care for a
ball. I. prefer, after my Inauguration,
to go at once into the executive, of

my wish that all ceremonies be as
simple as possible. No red tape or
fringe on them, if you please. No, I
don't wish to go to a ball. I wish to
go to work."
That's the kind of governor that the
people of Oregon want. An executive
that comprehends the responsibilities
of his office and Is not too lazy to get
down to work. Pyrotechnics are alt

wants no ostentatious dis
play in his. He is a plain man of the
people. Baker Democrat.
