PARK OF JRS. M'NAIR
Us went to bed a humble man.
Content with nil that lie pvanesn-d.
He thought himself no better than
His neighbors living east or west;
lis hands was out to all he knew.
From no one near was he estrang
ed JVmo honored him ere night was
. And in the morning he was changed.
The cheer at men were in his ears.
Some little dream he had achieved:
They prafced as men have praised fur
He gladly heard and he believed.
. 11e drug of flattery turned his brain,
' And those who had beeu friends be-
Could never go to hii.l again
And find a welcome at his door.
THE M KNACK OP FAME
Tlie old-time neighbors he forgot.
The little house waclosed for good.
Henceforth he felt that he con Id not
Be seen In such neighborhood;
Yet, such a little time ago
Both peace and joy had crowned
And until fame was his lo know.
The little street seemed wondrous
Oh. why Is it that fame should spoil
The man and turn his love to hate?
Why should the brother used to toil
Forget the toiler when he's great?
Fame's but an outer garb to wear.
And underneath the world's acclaim
And honors which reward the fair,
The man is really Just the same.

MORE MARKET ROADS NEEDED
T N tKfc country west of Pendleton there is a farmer who is
I said to have been at an expense of 25 cents a sack to haul his J
wheat to the warehouse. He was penalized by having a bad
road. He estimates that with a good road he could have saved
P1500 in hauling charges this season.
The instance is cited to show the economic waste attendant
upon bad roads: It is a subject upon which people are learn
ing considerable. The good roads we do have are an object les
son in the economy of correct road building and people want
more They are justified in demanding action.
Umatilla county has of course done considerable in the way
of road improvement A vast program has been carried out an,d
great progress has been made on the essential task of making
our main trunk roads good for all year travel. '
But the main traveled roads are not the only roads by any
ineans and there will be dissatisfaction if this county rests con
tent with what has been done thus far. In all parts of Umatilla
county there are important market roads that need improve
ment. There are numerous cases where' farmers are put to
heavy expense just as in the case of the west end farmer refer
red to above. Some of these men have not stopped to calculate i
what they are losing by the present state of affairs. But they
are paying the price just the same.
Umatilla county still has much to do before it may regard its
road problem as solved. There is crying need of the road
. southward to the Grant county line. The condition of the road
on Butter creek is known to be deplorable and there is just rea
son for the indignation shown over the state of affairs there.
There are similar problems in the east end of the county and in
the region around Athena, Weston and Helix. There is a de
mand that the iioldman road be improved to Pendleton.
All in all Umatilla county has a big road problem yet to
solve. How we are to get all the roads that the people want is
not an easy question to answer. But the problem confronts us
and it is one of extreme importance. It is one worthy of much
thought and frank discussion. Where there's a will it is gen
erally possible to find a way.
THE BUSY BEE
THE number of hives of bees on farms in the United States
on Jan. 1, 1920, according to the fourteenth census, was 3,
476,346, as compared with 3,445,006 in 1910, showing an
increase of 31,340, or 0.9 per cent. In making comparisons be
tween these two years the change in the date of enumeration,
from April 15 in 1910 to January 1 in 1920, should be taken into
consideration. Especially in states where the winters are severe
the number of hives of bees on farms in April of any year is
likely to be considerably less than the number in January, In
Biich states the 1920 figures may be somewhat too high for a fair
comparison with 1010. It is probable, therefore, that a count
tf the hives of bees in April, 1920 would have shown a decrease,
as compared with the number in 1910, rather than even a slight
The states reporting the largest number of hives of bees on
farms on January 1, 1920, were Texas, with 235,111 ; Tennessee,
with 191,898; California, with 180,719; North Carolina with
162,630; Missouri, with 157,678; Kentucky, with 156,889; and
Alabama with 153,766. These eight states are the only ones
which reported over 150,000 hives of bees in 1920. Tennessee
showed the greatest absolute increase, with 47,417 more hives
vt bees in 1920 than in 1910, and Oklahoma was second, with
27,330 more hives in 1920 than in 1920.
The production of honey in 1919 was 55,261,562 pounds, as
against 54,814,890 pounds in 1909, an increase of 0.8 per cent.
The production of honey is fairly uniformly distributed through
out the United States. Six states reported more than 2,000,000
pounds of honey produced in 1919, as follows; California, 5,
.01,738 pounds; Texas, 5,026,095 pounds; New York 3,223,323
pounds; Iowa, 2,840,025 pounds; Wisconsin, 2,676,683 pounds:
and Colorado, 2,493,950 pounds. ' x
California, although ranking first in 1919 and 1909 in
amount of honey produced, reported 4,762,977 pounds less in
1919 than in 1909, this being a decrease of 46.4 per cent. Texas
showed the greatest absolute increase in production of honey,
with 1.932.9H8 pounds more in 1919 than in 1909. Other no
table increases were in Washington (1,092,626 pounds) and
Wyoming 945,349 pounds).
The production of wax was 826,539 pounds in 1919, as
against 904,867 pounds m 1909, representing a decrease of 78,
iuJ8 pounds, or 8.7 per cent.
LOOK TO THE SOUTH
O EEKING new trade relations Pendleton may look with
much confidence to the southward. There is a vast em
pire there not yet developed. Some people underestimate
tuat country because it is largely devoted to grazing. But there
was a time in the memory of men not very aged when Umatilla
-ounty was chiefly a grazing country. Not many years ago
people thought that only the bottom lands of this county were
worth anything. They placed little value on land that now
produces some of the best wheat yields in the country. We
id not raise much wheat before the railroads came. No re
j ion can dy much without transportation and transportation is
'le chief need of southern Umatilla county and of Grant county.
Jsola'ioir-is the fhicf reason why that vast region is pparKe'v
. pulaU'S . Build a real righway into that country and you will
mii a transformation and the change will be profitable to;
