WE BELIEVE IN DOCTORS
Wo believe that every man when he is sick should call a doc
tor, and not try to "doctor" himself. We believe there would
be far less sickness far better health if everybody would do
everything possible to co operate with doctors in taking better
care of their health. We believe that the best way, always, is
to hnve a doctor sec what the matter is, and write u prescrip
tion for it, and then have a reliable druggist prepare the
medicine according to the prescription. : :- :

Wealth is simply one of tlio
Krentest powers which can be
entrusted to liumnn 1 Kinds; u
power, not indeed to he envied,
because it seldom mnkes ns hap
py; but still loss to be abdicated
or despised: while in tneso days
and in this country, It has be
come a power all tlio more nota
ble, in that the possessions of a
rich man are not represented,
as they used to be, by wedges
of gold or coffers of jewels, but
by masses of men variously em
ployed, over whose bodies and
minds the wealth, according to
its direction, exercises harm
ful Influence, and becomes, in
that alternative, mammon either
of unrighteousness or of right
Its primitive cost, it Is apparent that
tlio actlvo or passive alliances of the
future open to the United Stntes will
be not for the sake of our military
strength, but because we cati feed
curselves and the world.
Formerly nations soiighr offensive
and defensive alliance because of tho
strength of their aggregated armies.
Now It Is the American farmer, and
not the soldier who is sought as an
ally by the other great powers. Tho
plow and prunlng-hooU, niul not tho
sword and gun, dictate the destinies
of the nations.
EUROPE'S FOOD SUPPLY.
Another commission with tlio
Prince of Wales ns a member, has
been appointed to inquire into the
safety of England's food supply In
a time of war, says the Call. Coun
tries In Continental Europe have rea
son for making a similar investiga
tion. Not many years ago, when u nation
desired to make war, it was a ques
tion of money, ir the money lenders
refused to take Its bonds, It must
forego the luxury of war and be at
peace Now It Is a question of food.
So many countries depend upon tho
United Stntes for their food supply
that they must have a navy strong
enough to protect its Importation, or
they must let war alone. Great Drit
ain has a surpassingly strong navy,
but she imports more than 50 per
cent of her food supply, and her war
ships would bo kept busy in a war
with another naval power to keep
her people from starving.
Our primacy as a producer of food
stuffs gives to the United States a
position of peculiar power. Not only
in food but In the other production
necessnry to other nations in war and
peace, wo measurably control tho
destinies of the world. Iloth England
and' Germany have found It necessary
to resort to our market for a supply
of mules and horses for military pur
poses, and for dry forage to maintain
the animals they buy. The brave
Boers were not whipped in South '
Africa. They wore whipped by the '
mulo breeders of Missouri and the
horse ranchers of Montana. It Is not
saying too much to say that the
United States can at any time compel
the peace of the world by ceasing to
export food and mules and noises. I
This Is as true as to Asia as It is
to Europe. None of the Western na-1
tions can long maintain forces neces-j
sary to absolutely overrun China un
less we supply them, for the popu
lation of that country has already
outgrown Us food supply and has to
Uopend on us to save Its peoplo from
If brought to their highest produc
tion it Is doubtful whether the farm
lands of the British Isles can in one
year, produce a food supply sufficient
for mono than seven months. Much
mr tho farming area is non-producing
now, and moro Is being obsoleted
every year, while In the United States j
more land is annually brought under
tillage, and wo are still far from forc
ing any considerable portion of our
agricultural area to Its highest capac
ity by Intensive farming.
While an English royal commission
Is meeting to consider the food sup
ply of that country another royal
commission Is on Its way to the
United States to make a profound
study of our food producing capac
ity, our methods of developing it, and
DINGER HERMAN'S CHANCES,
Tho politicians are speculating on
I tho effect on Hlnger Herman's
I chances the land exposure frauds will
I have. As Blngor Herman was com-
mlsslouor of tho land department dur-
I lug the tenure of ofllce of tho recent-
ly discharged land ofllciuls. Miss
1 .Marie Ware, late of the land ofllce
at Eugene, Is missing. An Indictment
Is out for her charging her with per
jury. It Is also said that the proba
bilities are that she will also have
to stand trial for the misapplication
of funds. Blngor Herman Is put in
an awkward position by these expos
ures, it strikes ,tho cnsual observer
that ho has been rather lax in tho
administration of his otllre to allow
without investigation conditions of
this kind to exist. Thai gross frauds
have been perpetrated there Is no
reasonable doubt. The frauds at the
Bend land ofllce are a notable example.
MUST ALTER OURSELVES.
If you claim to be able to deal
with problems you have never con
sidered, to teach things you have
never studied, to understand things
that aro boyend your ken, you are
flatly dishonest, there Is no other
word for it. You are untrue ti your
self. Persons are pronu to think that
the world and life In general ought
to alter to suit them. If they ever
make up their minds to the plain fact
that the only thing we can alter is
ourselves, much useless waste of en
ergy will ho spared. Exchange .

This is n movo In tlio right dlrectlun.

to havo one strong church thnn sov

would lead to conservation of energy
