(By Prank I Stanton.)
FVnr heart! I know not looklnsr to the light
That evermore your pathway blesses;
What would be one rose more. In the deep night
Of your unbraided tresses?
Take you the M ill for what would be the deed!
l'ity me, dear: seeing I am but human!
Oh, may the angeis of the great Lord lead
My life to such a woman!
Now in deep penitence before your feet:
Now, queen-like strike and slay!
Demand me death and death were passing sweet,
iear, at your feet today!

$24,000,000 WASTED ANNUALLY
engineering authority in Canada has estimated that on
the Canadian railways operated by the use of coal the
consumption of coal per horse power runs up.as high as
HO tons a year. He estimates that from 20 to 30 tons per horse
power a year will represent the average present cost in coal.
Assuming that the &ame figures wni apply to railroads in
the United States and that 25 tons per horse power a year is a
fair average some very interesting observations may be made
fi to the economic waste in using coal on northwestern railroads
when water power is available.
The continuous electric power that may be developed at
Umatilla rapids, according to preliminary surveys by govern
ment engineers, is 120,000 horse power. In addition 200,000
horse power may be developed for use during the irrigation sea
fun. Therefore for purposes of discussion the continuous horse
Jower may be regarded as available for industrial uses. Turned
" ;nto terms of coaj, on the basis of the Canadian engineer's esti
mate, this mean 3,000,000 tons of coal per year: Putting a
Value of $8 per ton on that coal means that through failure to
use the minimum power at Umatilla ripids the country is suf
fering an economic loss of $24,000,000 annually a sum larger
than the estimate for the construction of the power project.
Think of the such waste and think of the blunder in operat
ing our railroads by coal instead of by hydro electric power.
Think of the useless labor the railroads perform in devoting a
large part of their energy to hauling coal for their own uses.
Think of the needless burden the public carries in raying freight
rates that will produce dividends under such conditio.
' But that is not all the story. The conl supply is exhaustible,
and wilt some day be depleted.". hen that time comes what
w 'W happen to industries located where hydro electric power, is
Hot available? With prices of coal and oil advancing is it not
time for people to give some thought to this phase ot economy,
Hydro electric power when developed is inexhaustible. Why
not use it instead of continuously burning up coal that will some
ciay become a matter of lite or death to those living m regions
not blessed with water power?
, An inspiring thing about the move to hasten development of
power at Umatilla ripids is that it is hot only a step to increase
the prosperity ot this region but is also a move directly in line
with a course that is being urgently recommended by the best
minus in uie ileitis oi science ana economics.
ADVICE FROM A CHAMPION
DUNG men expect preachers to admonish them against
evil ways of living. .
They expect their teachers to instruct them that bad
habits breed disease, unhappiness and death.
lhey expect their parents to remonstrate with them against
falling into the pitfalls of vice. ' -
lhey expect writers, lecturers and reformers to tell them
that the road to success and happiness is the straight and nar
Because they feel more or less that these advisors are trvinir
to take all of the joy out of life, they are Drone to cive onlv
partial heed to their injunctions. ' i
Perhaps, then, they will be more impressed hv th words
of the champion prizefighter of the world. If so. let them lend
vn attentive ear to what Mr. Jack Dempsey, premier pugilist,
uus to say upon me suDject. ;
In an interview with a Portland newsnanerman. Mr. npmnl
soy declared that he did not smoke, chew, drink or associate
with dissolute women. It is the clean liver who wins in anv
walk of life, whether he goes in for boxinc or banking, said th
champion. 'He even went further. He declared that a clean
mnd and a clean heart are as essential as a clean hodv if a man
is to heach and stay at the top. 1
Inese words may have a stransre sound cominc from nViP
whose vocation has ever been associated in the nublie mind with
tl e under side of life. But Jack Dempsey has learned from the
experince of others that a man must have something more than
burly strength and brute courage to win in pugilism. The his
tory of the fistic game is replete with examples of the downfall
of champions who disregarded the fundamental laws of the
game. 1 .
Any other athlete will subscribe to the same advice given
by Dempsey, but, because the fighter commands an admiration
irom the youth such as does no other, the words of the champion
ought to carran impressive lesson.
