LET US BUILD A PARK.
For 600 years Rome used no medi
cine except her public baths, parks
and swimming pools.
Caracalla built public baths that
were the wonder of the world. The
selfish PerUians, Egyptians and other
contemporary peoples wondered how
a ruler could so deeply concern him
self in the public welfare as to ex
pend public and private funds
for the pleasure and benefit of he
The rabble, from the selfish stand
point, had no claim on the govern
ment, but In the exalted Ideal of Car
acalla the barbarian, the object of all
organized government was to add to
the blessings of the common people,
and by knitting their hearts to tho
government, raise up an Imperisha
ble bulwark against revolution and
His Ideal was to keep the praise of
Rome and her institutions constantly
on the lips of every Human. No other
spot on earth should be allowed to
rival his magnificent Rome, so there
would be no allurement elsewhere to
win the admiration of the people, or
to permit .of a reproach to the Insti
tutions of Home, through comparison.
What an ideal was this for a bar
barian! How keenly should It rebuke
some modern municipalities with 2,
000 years more of enlightenment and
Christianizing to their credit than
In the invigorating baths of old
Rome, a race of matchless men and
women was made.. .Matchless In In

vigor, matchless In health and endur

If you have a faint memory of a
iiutatorium, a band stand, an arbor,
a public fountain, rustic seats, or
a public park, your mind wanders
away from your homo town to that
other place, and Instantly you make
nn unfavorable comparison of your
town with that other, und you almost
wish you wero there Instead of here.

The suggestion of Superintendent
Looney, of the Oregon Reform
School to change the name of that
Institution to the Oregon Industrial
School. Is good. The first and high
est object of that Institution is edu
cation and training and not punish
ment. The horror which the name
"Reform School" Inspires In the
minds of both parents and children
always lingers as a stigma and a ills
grace. The Idea generally prevails
that It Is a bleak prison for youth and
the bad boy often goes there with
the determination to crowd Just us
much meanness Into his term ns pos
sible and come out already fitted for
the penitentiary. The legislature
should cheerfully change the name
of the Institution In hopes that at

California's determination to make
tho best exhibit ev.er gathered by
the golden state, for the Lewis and
Clark fair, should spur Oregon to ex
alted und self-sacrificing effort. This
is a signal, a challenge to the pro
ducers of Oregon. Will they accept
the signal and enter the contest, or
will they Just "lay down" and let
matters drift? Now Is tho time to be
gin. Next harvest will bo too late.
The foundt-lon should be laid this
fall, so the crowning sheaves can be
placed at tho .earliest moment next
spring. Umatilla county must make
an exhibit there. Tho state has
launched tho fair. .Nothing could in
tiro the state so much as to make a
failure of It. Every county will bo
personally responsible for Its part In
tho success of the fair. The wonders
are hero; the great crops of wool,
wheat, alfalfa and fruit, th.e manu
factured articles and tho land values.
Tho people must collect an exhibit
worthy of the county.
