If some stronger hero's sword
Had struck down my weak
er blade
Not one coward's moan or
word
Had the stinging wound be
trayed. But to see the battle won
By less daring heart than
mine;
Febler feet to win the race
Shallow brows the wreath
to twine!
Up. and strive! The golden
day
Is not lost, but still unwon!
Far beyond the weakling He
Glorious deeds as yet un
done! Golden heights are yet to
scale
Far beyond the weakling's
powers;
Strong mf heart, and fleet of
the day shall yet be
ours.

THE PUBLIC SCHOOL KNOCKER.
I was mayor." or "school clerk" or
, some other official.
I But If you will look nt the other
side of the school reports you will
see that the dally attendance has
doubled in eight years; Pendleton
has added an entire residence dis
trict north of the river since that
time, and the birth rate has not de
clined in any portion of the city, out
side of the bachelor ward.
If you take any iride In the growth
of the city, in the extension of lis
trade and the unfolding of Its insti
tutions. quit knocking the public
schools and all efforts to improve
them.
If you doa't want t new settlors, if
you don't want increased business In
Pendleton. If you are rich enough
without making any further .effort to
increase the value of property by the
erection of elegant homes and the
improvement of the city, just keep
on kicking about legitimate school
taxes and about paying wages to
competent school teachers and for
sanitary arrangements to protect the
health cf the scholars, and make tbe
school!. Inviting to outside patrons.
The city should know where to
look for assistance in its upward
struggle and the knockers should no:
be identified with any forward move
ment. Isn't it time to get in line for
Pendleton?

The kickers against the cost of tbe
public school system in Pendleton
can be numbered on the fingers tl
your two hands, but strange to say,
that number comprises some of tbe
must thoughtful business men in the
eity.
The first argument they advance
when asked why tuey object to pay
ing teachers good salaries, to build
ing suitable school rooms, to" making
Improvements necessary to the
ing teachers good salaries, to build
is this: "I didn't have all those lux
uries, and my boy is no better than
I am. What little I know I learned
In a log schoolhouse, sitting on a
slab bench."
That is tne first and last burden of
their objection to puuilc school Im
provements. By tbe same rules of logic these
kickers should now be reading some
old almanac by the light of a tallow
dip, warming their shins In a BmoKy
log cabin before a fireplace that
won't "draw." sitting on a wooden
bench without qushion or back; their
motive power should be a yoke nf
oxen and their time limit in going
from Pendleton to Portland should
not be less than 40 days, and their
accommodations on that trip should
consist In a "corn husk" bed In a
covered yagon, a frying pan, coffee
pot, hatchet and rifle and If they
didn't kill a jack rabbit during tbe
day no supper should be forthcom
ing. They are willing that every other
feature of civilization shall grow
away from the puoilc school.
They are willing to furnish their
homes with electric lights, (express)
telephones, and improved hot-air
plants, They are willing to have mall
delivered at their doors, evening and
morning papers brought to their
desks, revolving chairs and dream
laden divans in cozy corners and all
in other advancements In home and
business life but they want the
public school system left where It
.was when they -were boys, because
"their boy. Is no better than they."
Laying :aslde all Jokes, and in all
seriousness, Is It not about time for
this littloi coterie of publfc school
knockers to Jay down their hammers
and Join the procession?
Is It not time to meet the natural
Increase of school population In a
brave, hopest, cordial manner, con
sistent with the spirit of the patri
ots who gave us the public school?,,
It is true' tbe cost of maintaining
the public schools of Pendleton Is
greater now than it was "eight years
ago, when J was director," or "whan
The municipal water system owned
by the city of Pendleton, returned
the people profit of $7,063.01 for the
year 1903, an increase in profits of
992.10 over 1902. This money is the
fruits of municipal ownership of
public utilities. No city in the land
should ever sell, barter or give away
a franchise that belongs to the peo
ple. If a well regulated municipal
water Bystem will pay, well conduct
ed municipal electric light and tele
phone systems will pay in equal pro
portion to the amount invested. Pub
lic ownership Is successful here. No
scandal has been connected with the
water system, "ine same success
would attend the management of
light and telephone systems and the
aim In maintaining tbe municipal
systems would be good service and
comforts for the people, advance
ment to Keep pace with the age and
not altogether proflt-getttug. This
is one of the coming Issues In Pen
dleton. The people know where
their interests lie and some morning
not far distant, the city will wake up
to find a set of ouicials in power
ready to buy or construct every pub
lic convenience used by the people.
Public ownership is not a dream.

would 'phone to find out what was ,

Every housewife and every dys
peptic husband in tbe state hopes
that the creamery business will ad
vance fast enough, in Oregon to
drive the oleo and "process" butter
out of the markets. It Is a burning
disgrace to know that some of the
stuff shipped into Oregon as butter
should And place in ue markets of
a state containing such creamery
possibilities as this state contain.
Tbe establishment of a 10,000-pound
dally capacity creamer' in Portland
will be a long step toward tbe elim
ination of bogus butter from tbe mar
kets. What is wanted is full-weig'at,
fresh, clean home production, with
the coat of arms of Oregon printed
on it, as a guarantee that It does not
contain a million disease germs to
the square inch. Penuleton eats 230,
000 to 300,000 pounds of butter each
year and Imports this entire amount.
CRUELTY TO THE HORSE.
The horse, the moBt useful of .til
animals, is the one marked for the
most of men's ill-treatment. For
the most part housed In' Ill-lighted,
Ill-ventilated and ill-smelling guar
ters, worked to its full capacity,
cared for only to the degree that
selfish interest prompts, the animal
Is delivered over as the unprotected
object of tbe unrestrained passions of
man.
The aveiage man falls apparently
to understand that animals have a
nervous system, among them in a
marked degree the horse, and that
were he to govern his own temper
he could with a little patience get
control o fthe horse's nervous syb-1
tem and make out ot It a servant
vnstly more efficient man It Is under
the system In which he beats and
jerks and drives it to distraction. '
A short wall, in any city will illf-1
cover many blind horses. Why? .
There are no blind cows, compara-,
lively. And yet the sight of one i
naturally Is as good as that of the
other. The difference Is simply '
that the harfce from the beginning i
has been abused. Ill-housed, over j
worked and worked under condi-1
tlons that have driven him blind.
His eyes are shut in by bllnde-s
at each side, for which there is no
. use but to satisfy the caprice of
fashion of man. So h s vision inter
I fered witn and deprived of air, the
wonder is that with the other treat
ment he gets he is not blind oftener.
i Besides this in other cases his neck
Is almost pulled out of Joint by over
i head check reins tnat raise his face
j to the glare of the sun unprotected.
I Or. on the other hand, deprived ot
check rein, he is bitted with a curb
, that pulls his jaws to his breast and
tortures him in this fashion. Salem

SOMETHING FOR SMOKERS.
Two or three moutbfuls of tobac
co smoke from a cigarette were
shaken up with a few drops of blood
diluted with water In a bottle. Al
most Immediately the blood assumed
the pink color characteristic of blood
containing monoxide gas, and further
observations with the spectroscope
confirmed the presence In the blood
of carbon monoxide. Similarly, a
few mouthfuls of smoke from a pipe
and a cigar were tried and the re
sults were even more marked. In
this experiment we have some ex
planation in particular of The evil
