One of tho greatest Incentives for

tho town that has been felt by the

Is the hopeful, aggressive tone of the
Heppner newspapers, There has been
no liewnlllng, no complaining word
from either of them. They have
preached progress In tho very ruins
or their town. They have advised
rebuilding better than over, ovon be

character reached me, did I obey,
"I think I should havo rl3ked the
conseouences of disobedience even
then, hut for the fact that the order
to halt was accompanied with the
exnlanatlou that General Iee, who
wns several miles away, did not wish
to glvo battle at Gettysburg. It is
stated on good authority that General

served by Mesdames Husklns nnd Nut

A GREAT STATESMAN.
It must have been some 400 miles
by the old road and canals from Slp
parn to Susa; but It was easier trav
eling In that region -1000 years ago
than It Is now, for Hammurabi was a
strenuous ruler. It had taen him 30
years to throw off the yoke of the
Elamltes, with their capital at Susa,
and the remaining dozen years of his:
reign he devoted to consolidating
his empire, which now for the first
tlino in history united under one ruin'
tho whole of Babylon and added to It
the snzoranlty of Elam, or southern
Persia, with Assyria to the north and
even Syria and Palestine as far as;
the Mediterranean Sea. Being a grent
statesman as well as conquerer, he
built roads, dug canals, and was the
flrst to collect and formulate Into,
rodo tho decisions which the civil
courts had rendered nnd which had
grown out of Judges' law.
This full code, the most elaborate
monument of early civilization yet
discovered, ho engraved' on grunt
stono stelae, and set up in the prin
cipal cities in his realm, where they
could bo read by ull his subjects.
There wero about 280 soparato decis
ions, or edlctu, r-ovorlng the lights-of
property. Inheritance, marriage, di
vorce, Injuries to life or person,
tents, wages, slavery, etc. On the
stelae, following the text of tho luws,
Hammurabi told" his people why ho
had set up and published, this node.
It was that Justice might be e.tnbllsh
ed, and that any one who n.ut a com
plaint ugainst his neighbor might
come and read tho law and learn
what wero his rights. Dr. William
Hayes Ward In July Century.

Up Ui her chamber window
A slight wire trellis goes,
And up this Romeo's laddor
Clambers a hold white rose.
I lounge In tho Ilex shadows,
I see tho lady lean,
Unclasping her silken girdle,
The curtain's fold between.
She smiles on her whlte-roso lover,
She reaches out her hand
And helps him In nt tho window
I se It where I standi
To her scarlet lip she holds him,
And lefsses him many a time
Ah, me! It was ho that won hor
Heeause ho dared to climb!
