DDKESS1NG a Portland jftidience, Dr. Samuel Kohs, who
ever he may be, blamed much of the present day delin
quency on tlie public school system. On the contrary,
much of the trouble ia due to silly uratintr of the variety in-
Jdulged in by this speaker. There are too many people going
f.boiit blaming crime and misdemeanor on most everyone, ex-:
t epi inose responsioie. iney would take all the guilt away
from the criminal and place it on social conditions. We need
less mush of that sort and a stricter moral responsibility upon
the individual, whoever he may be. The law of gravity works
whether anyone likes it or not and we can get nowhere by trying
u iimnc ou.cjiuuic iiuuua uuiiK. uu teienuy. riop ine aiiui
making and put the blame fairly and impartially upon the evil
rtcter. A continual policy of soft pedalling and passing the buck
merely increases tne trouble..

At any rate our farmers can take consolation in the fact tlie
assessor placed a value pf but 60 cents a bushel on their wheat;
in Union county wheat id assessed at 80 cents.
THE ISOLATED MAN
(By Dr. William E. Barton)
WORDS have a queer way of drifting from their original
meanings. The word "prevent," for instance, means "to
go before." It is a word built up as plainly as a word can
possibly be constructed, out of a Lnpn verb which means to go,
and a preposition which means ahead.
It has come about, and we may well be sorry for it, that the
man who gets there first so often stops the other man from get
ting there at all, that we have come to use the word "prevent"
not of going and of arriving first, but of impeding, whether one
goes himself or not. Such a change in meaning could not have
occurred in an ideally unselfish world; the man who got there
first would be a helper of the next man to arrive. What a bless
ing it would have been, and what a fine comment on humanity,
if "prevent" had come to mean "to help," in the sense of a per
son who has the advantage using it for another's good! The
change might quite as well have been of that sort.
But there is another change worth speaking of. The root
"idio" is common in Greek. Its meaning is "one's own" or "one's
self." t ,
Naturally, our English derivatives from this root are not all
adjectives and verbs: there is a noun descriptive of the man who
acknowledges no standards but his own, and seeks no other's
welfare than his own. The word, as every one knows, is "idiot."
It means nothing more nor less than a completely self-centered
Now, it is interesting to see how this word has modified its
meaning. The isolated man who lives the isolated life, the life
of complete self-hood, cannot be that of a person of much learn
ing; so, by Jeremy Taylor's day, the Word idiot washed of ig
norant persons. ' .
Really, if you stop to think of it, that definition is not wholly
strange. If one could find a man completely satisfied with him
self, completely w illing to learn nothing and receive nothing
from any other human being, and determined to do nothing for
ny one else, there would be some justice in maintaining that the
change in the meariing of the word had done no great violence
to its, generic idea. ,
A, social world is no piace for a completely self-centered

m EW people in America realize that Australia, away, off

more so, in many respects, than the United States or any
country in the world," remarked John T. Johnson, of Sidney,
Australia. "Australia was the first country in the" world to es
tablish the arbitration court to settle disputes between capital
and labor. It has been-in existence over 20 years, and is invar
iably successful. Kecotfrse to the arbitration court is, compul

able to imprisonment if it has recourse to a lockout or a strike
before submitting the case in dispute first to this court. No pro

which has stopped by offers from the
United fitates to mediate, has brought
the little Central American republic
to tho front page;
Although appropriately equal In
area to West Virginia, the great ma
jority of tho half'million inhabitants
of Costa Rica live on- a mountain
fringed plateau 50 miles square, In the
center of the. country. The regions
bordering Nicaragua on the northwest
and Panama on tho southeast are al
most uninhabited, except for Indians.
Praetically all of the original Indian
Inhabitant of Costa Rica were ex
terminated when the country was ta

striking contrast to most Lutln-AmerT-ean
