Religion Is not a little fenced
off enclosure, within which all
is sacred, and outsiau of which
all is secular nnd profane.
There is no sncn distinction to
bo drawn. Huligion is life,
character, conduct: it reaches
up to God and down Into the
smallest details of daily duty.
It covers everything.
The man who does not want
to mix his religion with his
business must have a very
poor quality of religion or n
very shady sort of business.
"While the city of Portland is
clinching friendships, by the hundred.
in her able and masterly handling of
the livestock conventions, the happy
ord reaches the city that Jefferson
Myers has added a master stroke to
the already matchless accomplish
ment of the stato of Oregon and city
of Portland, in furthering the inter
ests of the Lewis and Clark fair.
To the fine executive' ability and
foresight of .Mr. Myers is due the In
troduction and passage of a resolu
tion by the democratic natlonnl com
mittee, recognizing and Indorsing both
the St. Louis nnd Lewis and Clark
fairs, by that committee.
No other one act performed In the
interest of these expositions, will
have such a wide reaching effect. No
other single performance will appeal
o thrlllingly to the masses as the
commendation of this committee, of
ovents commemorating the two great
est achievements of tho father of de
mocracy the purchase of Louisiana,
and tho exploration of the "Oregon
Oregon Is fortunate In having such
a leader at the head of the state
Lewis and Clark commission. This
is a time In which she needs big men
men of Insight and wisdom, backed
by the ready wit to perceive and tho
backbone to execute such master
strokes as this.
Even the able and statesmanlike
speech of Senator Mitchell in the
halls of congress will not exceed this
act, In placing the fair before the peo
ple. This commendation of the two
historical achievements of Thomas
Jefferson by his followers, Is a fitting
tribute to bis wisdom and to tho
glory of the result of his far-reaching
policy, by which the major portion "f
the empire of the United States was
brought under the flag, and left as a
heritage for this generation.
Oregon Is fortunate In having Jef
ferson Myers for this occasion. She
has clinched a point through his ef
forts that counts, it will bring :o
sults. It means visitors for tho fair.
It means renewed vigor in congress.
It means greater publicity to the fair
and Its objects, and It means the
touching of a patriotic chord In tho
hearts of the people, which will draw
them to Oregon, as no other appeal
could do.
As tho West settles up, as tho arid
districts are reclaimed, new and
wondrous political problems will
arise. Western states are veritable
empires In magnitude.
Tho capital cities aro necessarily
far removed from many of the popu
lous districts. Travel to and from
present metropoles, and stato capitals
Is costly and tedious, from tho romoto
cornors of tho present great stales
of tho West.
As tho country Is sottled up new
centers of population will naturally uo
formed around tho fertile spots re
claimed from tho wilderness, New
lines of railroad and tho grouping of
now Industries will bring Into life now
central points and chango tho very
faco of tho maps of tho Westorn
These wonderful Industrial evolu
tions will rnnko now linos nnd new
conveniences noccssary, Tlio enor
mous mlicago bills by tortuous routes
from .mountain valleys to state legis
latures nnd county scats, will make
new counties, new states nnd now
cities inevitable.
Thoso chnngos nro coming nnd tho
people might ns woll prepnre for
them. tW same vlrllo industrlnl pol
icy which is now parceling out tho
former 1.000 ncre farms of tho West,
Into 20 nnd 40 ncro tracts, each sup
porting its quota of population, will
gradually divide Westorn counties

Evftit now a plnn which may seem
visionary todny 1ms been proposed by
nn Idaho paper. This gonitis proposes
n new stato. carved from Eastern
Washington, Northeastern Oregon
nnd the panhandle of Idaho, with
I.owlstnn ns the cnpltnl of a iinturnl
state, formed by tho great districts
pouring tlicir products Into the lap of
that Idaho city.
Greater surprises than the forma
tion of Just such a state, havo been
sprung on unsuspoctlug politicians in
the past and it Is not an Impossibil
ity. The great Cascade range dividing
Oregon Into two natural sections, with
vastly dlfforent needs and surround
ings hns boon suggested ns the lino
for stato division In this state, nnd as
the vast Idle tracts of tho Interior
come under the hand of the home
maker, such a division would not be
unjust, nor unexpected.
ed on tho same day by the same com
mission man, One clip brought 13&
txints per pound, tho other 12 cents.
This difference enraged tho low man
nnd he abused the buyer very blttor
ly for tho seeming injustice Hut the
speaker explained tho renson for the
dlfforonco in price. The man receiv
ing the highest price lor his wool
sorted it nt the shearing pen, put.
Hub- nil tho clean fleeces In snclis a
themselves nnd all tho tags, pulled
wool and dirty gatherings from - the
shearing pen In sacks to themselves,
lnbollng them ns such. The man who
received but 12 cents, put his fleeces
pulled from dead sheep among his
live lleeces, scattered his worst tags
nil through tho clip, nnd when the
buyer cut onun n sack, he found n
dead fleece In the contor nnd this And
cost the owner 1M: cents a pound on
his entire clip.
The following sentiments are taken
from nn editorial of ex-Governor J.
J. Geor's in the Salem Statesman.
The editorial end of the Statesman
was never better handled than It Is
at present:
"No class of our public servants
are required to work so hard for o
small pay as tho teachers In our pub
lic schools. Theirs is the most thank
less of all public positions to All
while there is no vocation bearing
more directly on the future welfare
of the commonwealth. The intelli
gence as well as the moral worth of
the men nnd women who are to suc
ceed to tho management of our af
fairs depend largely ou those who are
placed In charge of the chlldten In
the school rooms.
One of the best results, of tho live
stock conventions being held in Port
land this week Is the obliteration rf
all traces of the differences between
the sheepmen and cattlemen. A weld
ing of friendships has been in pro
gress this week in Portlnnd, which
means peace and harmony on the
wide ranges of tho state. Thanks to
the broad Westerner, this is a result
in keeping with his size. It means
money, peace, equal rights, fair deal
ing and friendship that is beyond
price to the hardy race of men who
are the bono and sinew of the West.
Sir l'ollfiiore with nrmed hnuds,
Undo out to seek the Grail,
Hut though he sought In many
lie sought without avail.
Sir I'ollenore rode home ngnln
To see ills mother, denr.
And coming, found with bitter pain,
That mother on her bier.
And on the altar nt her bend,
All passion pure and pale,
Abrlm with sacred wine rosc-red
He saw the Holy Oral!.
God grant this little legend wings
To nil who love to roam,
The holiest nnd tho dearest things
May still be found nt home."
John Fox, tho nuthor of "The Little
Shepherd of Kingdom Come," on ono
of the occasions of his search for
local color" In the Kentucky moun
tains, stayed over night nt a cabin
where he slept up next the clap
boards and wont down a ladder to
breakfast. He washed his face In a
creek below tho house and dried It
on n siding of coffee sack hung
against the logs for family use, and
combed his hair with his own comb
bcTore a piece of broken glass stuck
between the chinking nnd daubing.
The progress of this toilet was close
ly watched by a smnll boy clothed In
cottouiule pants hitched by ono "gal
lus" to his shirt with a nail, nnd tho
rest of his nppcaranco In keopjn. Sir.
Fox believed he was making a good
Impression upon the spectator until
the latter casually remarked: "Say.
mister, nin't you a good deal of
troublo to yourself!"
Alfred Henry Lewis, In n recent
Saturday Evening Post, discourses ns
follows. "The Tool's n patriot in every

"One reads .Mr. Tlay's earlier poonib
with a thrill of pride. They open

Contentment is a theme which has
Inspired the pens of numerous wntors
nnd the subject does not seem lo be
yet exhausted.

One of the most important revela

In recent years, was unfolded by a
representative of the American Man
ufacturers' Association beforo tho
woolgrowers' meeting on Tuesday
afternoon In Portland. It was this:

The ttory of
great deal of the
unhappioeaa of
women is a story
of loot health.
Women wonder
how it is that
little by little
the form loses
plumpness, the
cheeks grow hol
low and sallow, and they feel tired and
worn-out all the time. In a large pro
portion ot cases wlieu women are r eaic,
run-down and falling off in flesh and
looks, the root of the trouble can be
traced to wutnanly dbeases which under
mine the general health. The proof of
this is that women who have been cured
of painful womanly diseases by the use
of Dr. Pierce's I'avorite Prescription
have recovered their general health,
gained in flesh and ill appearance.
Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription cures
the womanly diseases which sap the gen
eral health. It establishes regularity,
dries weakening drains, heals inflamma
tion and ulceration and cures female

"I'avorite Prescription " makes weak
women strong, sick women well. Ac

which works wonders for weak women.
