The small boy had a bad tem
per. He knew it. and was sin
cerely sorry that he couldn't
control It better. He talked
to his father about it, and the
father who was fond of object
tesclring. said: "I'll" see what I
can do to help you. Here are
some nails and a hammer. Xow
every time you lose your tem
per drive one of these nails in
that post just outside the door."
After a ew weeks the boy came
to his father with a heavy face,
and confessed, "rather, the nails
are all gone." But the father
only answered. "Well. now. ray
lad. every time that you get the
better of your temper pull a nail
out of the pot." And so the
boy did. And one day he came
to his father with a smiling
face and said: "Father, the nails
are all out." Then a shadow
fell upon the boy's face, as he
went on in a less cheerful tone,
"but father, the holes are there
yet." Some of us would give a
good deal if we could pull out
the holes. Robert Whlttaker.
The Heppner relief committee has
been unjust attacked by a venomous
minded man in a private letter pub- j
llshed In the Pilot Rock Record, Aug. j
21. The lotter accused the commit-
tee of misappropriating the public
funds received by It, and of otner
mismanagement In the affairs en-'
trusted to it by the people of Hep
nr. ' Following the publication of the
letter in the paper in question, the
author of it comes out in the same
paper. August 2S. with a complete
retraction, disclaiming any Informa-,
lion on the subject whatever, and
saying that he was not warranted i ,
making the libelous statements cor. ,
tained in the communication.
Tills uujiist and damaging attack
on the committee has not caused any ,
suspicion in the minds of friends of
the gentlemen comprising It, but u
has sent abroad among those not j
personally acquainted with these ,
mon, a damaging and false impres- J
rton. In matters or this kind one j
thousand people read the false accus
ation, where but few will read jc
denial. Bad news always travels
rapidly, while good reports are slow I
of wing. An Injustice, wnlch cannot !
be undone, has been committed by !
this criminnlly inclined man and this ,
thoughtless paper. The people of
Pilot Rock and vicinity know the gen-'
tlemen comprising that committee ,
and not one in a hundred of them !
Iiallevoil the accusations. But the
very fact that such a venomous '
attack could find tho light of day, 1
through the columns of the press,
lead many strangers to suspect the
uommlttee. Not In Eastern Oregon,
or any other country. Is there to be
found a more straightforward, con-
.sclentiotib. honest, faithful and able
body of citizens, than that composing
tbe Heppner relief committee. Their
characters were advertised to the
world by their fellow citizens when
they wore named as custodians of
Heppuer's welfare. In that time of
dire need. Their actions since that
time, and their management of the
funds lu the relief or the distressed

letter and make this retraction le
cause in justice I owe it to the Hopp

The same class of vermin, which
would thus besmirch the characters
of upright citizens, whose promi
nence, business ability and sense of
responsibility fitted them especially
for the task In which tbey have been
engaged since the day of that horror,
would hesitate at no depth of infamy
to accomplish an evil purpose. The
people of Heppner would be justified
in treating a raau who would thus
willfully rob the living of their rep
utation, as they would a man who
would rob the cloud of their trinkets.

A MEDIEVAL PSYCHOLOGIST.

whose specialty Is psychology, relies

pass, however, is so fraught with dread, pain, suffering and danger,
that the very thought of it fills her with apprehension and horror.
There is no necessity for the reproduction of life to be cither painful
or dangerous. The use of Mother's Friend so prepares the system for
the coming event that it is safely passed with ut any danger. This
crreat and wonderful

of women through
