It Is appropriate to tho blos

should stir the breast, and If
lovo and mating, why not di
vorce? They are the blossoms,
these are the fruit. To have
no divorces, presupposes Infal
libility of Judgment of every
boy and girl, man or woman.
It presupposes the same likes,
dislikes and affinities, charac
ter and development, at 40 as
at 20. Are human beings In
fallible In Judgment? No.
Hence divorce. Is a man or
woman tho same at 40 as at
20? No. Hence divorce. If
divorce at all. then the logic

It will require some time for the
large land holders In the West to
reconcile themselves to the unselfish
ness of the government plans of Ir
rigation. The government requires nothing
but complete surrender of .water
rights held for speculation and prollt.
It cannot undertake to combat or in
terfere with vested rights. There
must be a clear path and when a clear
path Is secured for government oper
ations, then there Is no limit to the
benefits that will come to he com
munity. In many places large tracts of laud
are held for an increase In price,
through the reclamation and Im
provement of adjacent land. This.
mo government will not tolerate
under a government project. There
must be a complete surrender, a di
vision of the spoils of the old laud
grabbing system, and a reorganiza
tion on a basts that contemplates tho
greatest good for the greatest possi
ble number.
The West must in time conform to
this wise and mitnitlcent plan, it
will mean a sacrifice of vested
rights, a surrender of speculative
schemes, but It will mean all to tho
general prosperity and advancement
of tho country.

the West must do everything to ac
complish it Just as rapidly as possi
One of tho uost arguments yot of
fered for road Improvements Is con
tained In a report of thu Industrial
commission on the distribution or
farm products.
Tho important fact Is thero brought
out that tho cost of hauling farm
products to markets over country
toads two years ago was In excess of
the cost of operating all tho railroads
in tho United States,
It has been shown by careful In
quiry that tho average haul of tho
American farmer In getting his pro
duce to market or to tho nearest ship
ping station Is 12 miles.
Tho average cost a ton for hauling
over tho ordinary country roads Is 25
cents a.,111110, or $3 a ton for a 12
mile haul, Careful cstlmats place tho
total number of tons hauled at 300,-
000,000 per annum and this, ut th.o ,
average 12-mIlo haul, would make tho
total nnniiul cost $900,000,000 as com-,
pared with tho $818,000,000 oxponso
fnrmors. On tli,om tho litinlcn fnlls
largely, ns fuw of them probably add
tho oxponso of hauling to tho coat of
tho product. Yet, with fow excep
tions, tho class of producers has stood
In tho way of road Improvement.

j stature, with low brows and a wide,
loose mouth, a representative of tho
poor type, lacking In brawn and
beauty, springing weedlly from a

vnpld In the bloodless pouch of the
cheek and the bouelessuess of tho

the contours are not defined.

"In tho lurking frenzy that inhabits

all his life made it a practice to write

engagements he has with politicians,
Mr. Davis goes to his room early,
even while In Now York, to write his

George II, Ilimes, assistant secre-
ary of tho Oregon Historical Society,
has received numerous tux receipts
and other papers issued to Jeremiah
Jack during the early part of tho last
century, says tho Oregon Dally Jour
nal. The papers are framed and
wero presented to the historical so
ciety by a graniUon of Jack, who re
sides at Pleasant Home, this county.
One of the most valuable of the pa
pers is an honorable discharge, or
certificate of service, Issued to Jero
in bib Jack at Camp Coosu, Ga.. on
November 10, 1813, signed by Capt.
Samuol Bowman. There uro also
three tux receipts Issued to Jack In
1813, 1817 and 1819. A receipt from
John Walker shows that Jack was a
hunter of some skill, ho having sold
to WvJlk.er nt one time, August 15,
1815, 314 raccoon, 115 fox, 25 cat. two
muskrar, four beaver and three otter
The most curious ot tho papers Is a
