Vi'hat Joy can life bring ua in years that may be?
We had coffee and crackers and oysters for three!
And we talked of brit days
And Jiff's beautiful ways, '
And song that was music, and love that was praise!
Tlie rain dripping down on fhe desolate street
llut even the rain had a rythmical beat,
j And with laughter and songv . - '
We forgot all Life's wron'p, '
With a health to the dark hours drifting along!
For Love Is a dream, and in sorrow it ends, ;
Hut coffee and crackers and oysters muke friends,
i And friends will abide . ... (
. Till the tourn o' the tide, - -And
a crust la a feast when there's )uy at your aide!
So simple a, banquet, but ample, at least!
We laughed dona the sorrows of life at that feast!
And what sorrows may be,
j. Did we care to forsee?
We had coffee and chackers and oysters for three!

MAN IN THE LIVING WORLD
(By Dr. William E. Bartin) V
ILLIAM VAUGHAN MOODY wrote a clever poem on
?Tbe Menagerie." The speaker was a half-drunken
farm hand, who had gone to town to see th show. He
remained in the tent after all the crowd had left and until the
ehowmen put him out After the crowd had gone, he fancied
he saw a change in the situation. He was the animal in the cagt
and all the others were the audience :
"They looked with mixed emolions upon me!"
it was as II they had said, V e are the discarded experi
ments of Nature in her effort after perfection, and you are the
crown of Nature's effort; are you worth it!"
A cjever little jingle is in circulation, which I have heard,
and may not quote with entire .accuracy, but which was some
thing like this: '
; 'Said the philosopher to the protoplasm,
"Between us there's a mighty chasm!"
But the protoplasm had its come-back:
' " When I look at you, old man, '.. ,
I'm almost sorry I "began!" ,
Among the forms of life on this planet, none is so noble as
man. Considered simply as a biological product, a marf is noth
ing less than Nature's sheer miracle.
Yet there is on this planet no organism that bears about
within itself such a weight of misery and pain. The lower ani
mals have no surgery, no medicine; andhey sometimes die for
lrck of it Their lives are sometimes saved by friendly human
intervention. If they knew what we knew some of them that
die need not die. Yet they are more healthy than we. 1 hey use
their little knowledge with more wisdom than we. As soon as
we learn a law of health weAiolate it. i .'.''
What have we to say to the forms of animal life that we have
passed in the upward struggle, concerning the use we have
r.iade of our superb human bodies and brains! Our answer
must be a pitiful apology. ' ' , .
As the country clown discovered in Moody's poem, they
must gaze with very mixed emotions.utfon a race with noble
Lodies and glorious minds but very little common sensed

In Roosevelt's time wa the precedent act ilie White House was horns
a fine little pet. "Algonquin," a pony.. from out of the west, came trotting to

and "Pauline," a cow, introduced to the land. Then Wilson stepped ill anil,

THE FIRST TO SUFFER, THE FIRST TO REVIVE
f T is a common opinion that when the 'jprice readjustment

that stocks are generally low and there .Is mucfi deferred
work that must be taken up as soort as conditions permit
Lending color to the view of a business revival when people
once becqme convinced that bottom has been reached is the fol
lowing extract from a financial review that is usually regarded
as representative of current conditions:
Index numbers showing the movement of prices still support the idea that
prices have nut yet absolutely touched bottom. During the past week the
"Economist" index dumber of British prices showed a decline for the month
Of January which amounts to about & per cent, ideally, commercial agency
liide figures show a falling off of about J, per cent during the last week. I're-
ar prices, however, have prac-ticalry established in many basic lines, includ
fiur sugar, rubber, mm-ferrous metals and various building materials, as well
as cotton, many gnuies of wool and 'a variety of othera Experts attribute the
disposition of buyers to purchase only sparingly to lack of confidence in the
future of prices, and believe that if those who are now in need of commodi
ties could be convinced that prices are practically at bottom there would be
an im K riant development of buying power. One of the most interesting fea
tures of the situation at present is the report that the greatest Improvement Is
now shown in those branches of trade whlca were th first to feel recession
during the past year. This In itself was one of the factors which has contrib
uted to stimulate the belief that Industrial conditions rt actually mending.
On the other hand, however, there is still much readjustment to be effected
In stel, and both prices of and orders for iron and steel and their products
Iiave during the past week suffered still further reduction. More doubt is ex
pressed regarding tke immediate future of the steel and iron industry than
any other branch "of trade, aolwitnstanamg wnicn, it is oecoming more uw
tutrent day by day that "driven" agaiast the shares of the United States Steel
t'orpurvtion and those of the independent companies fail to bring out stock.
Meanwhile during the past week collectUJns in various parts of the country
have somewhat slowed down a fact which indicates a still further recession
'ut isswmes activity in those sections.
It is quite probable that in Eastern Oregon and elsewhere
the conditions will vary with regards to different lines of busi
ness. Generally Fpeaklng, industries that first felt the readjust
ment slump will be the first to profit by the revival. Those who
nre now complaining the most may be the happiest people on
earth this time next year and others may be chanting the song
' of mourning. " -
