Rippling Rhymes.
: These Christmas bells remind ua,
as they ring everywhere, of good old
(lays behind us, when problems did
n't scare; our problems then were
I smaller, nnd wouldn't fetch a dollar;
wo took them by the collar and slug
? pred them with a chair. In those old
'; times 'twas seldom that problems
"". cune out way; In high esteem we held
t em, and watched the blamed things
flay; our dull routine was broken
when problems from Hoboken blew
li, with sign and token that they had
come to stay. Then life was calm and
peaceful, we worked, and made no
whine, nnd had a large valiseful of
SMds put down In brin; we did the
tasks allotted, the files we blithely
swatted, and to the hay wte trotted at
twenty after nine, One day was like
another," we k,pt our divers spheres,
and no man skinned his brother, as
no tne profiteers; or so It seems,
back gazing; the old days seem amaz
iug, whiles present (times are rais
ing their racket in our ears. But now
our problems vex us, and never lose
ttutlr grip; each day some new one
wrecks us, and smites us, thigh and
tilp j and so we're backward glancing,
we wish we might be prancing to
those old times entrancing
problems raised no' yip.

, more easily obtain money from their
""fcTiMbondit after studying public- speak
lag is the opinion of Dr. George R.
Vaniey, instructor in that oourse at
O. A. C. Public speaking has been de
fined as the art of porsuaslon and
persuasion is often necessary Iji such
cases. Also a mother might huvo to
use the art in training her children.
''Women, in general, without re
cord to their occupation, through the
Ktuily of public speaking gain Blf
confidence, ease, and poise in stand
ing before others," sulci Doctor Vur
noy. . "For women who expect to
loach there can be no doubt of Us
value. All the principles apply to this
work. It glvJs one a knowledge of her

"VUR esteemed contemporary, the Statesman, has a new
w slogan to advertise city and valley "Salem the
Freeze Center Hope for Fruit Gone!"
. ... Such at any rate is the package .of holiday cheer
handed the community by the eminent scientists that
furnish dope for the Statesman columns.

sagely informed the public that the "blackberry has suf
fered the fate of the loganberry," that 'as to peaches,
there will be none" and that "Jack Frost tlavs no favor.
ites, for prune orchards are hit hard", etc., etc, etc.
All of which would be sad if true, but beint? the exag
gerated phantasy of a journalistic "Scarey William,"
seeking a sensational story at the expense of veracity
is sadder still because it slanders the fair name and fame
of the community abroad, keeps people away and thereby
retards development.

outstrips good tidings,: we find the Portland TeWr-am

7-column banner declaring that the Willamette Valley

nation by the Associated Press leased wire and no
amount of denials will remove the impression created in
many minds that our most promising industry has hepn

elvely putting my hand to my fore
hoad. I found it covered with drops
of cold moisture.
Blindly I groped my way to a AU
van. As I did so, I caught eight of
my face. For a moment I did not
renilzc that it was mine so lined and
ashen was it. The weary eyes looked
at me, arid from their effort to keep
from crying. Those eyes begged of me
to give them the poor oonsolatton of
tears, j
But although the boIwi mine, and
snooK me from head to foot, I could
not weep,
bear It! Nobody wants us, baby!"
And then I thought of- my own
dear lttlo mother. How she would
welcome me with open arms, although
her heart might break at my sorrow!
How she wolud care for me. and a
baby that would eall her "Granny!"
Writes To Her Mother.
With sudden determination- and
strength which a moment before I
thought I did not possess, I went to
John's writing table and wrote:
"Dear Mother: I am coming to you.
I am coming to you to be with you
"1 can- not live here any longer: I
do not know my own husband, he ie
so strange,: so thoughtless, so selfish
"Mother, dear, when I told him this
morning that I am to become a moth
er, he was angry with me. He made
me feel that In some way t was to
blame and that what I thought would
e the crowning of my womanhood,
was in his eyes only an annoyance and
hindrance to some plans he had for
the immediate future. " "
"Mother, dear, I hope that I won't
make you too unhappy, but I am com
ingcoming right away!
"Tour unhappy KATHERINB.'
I read this letter over carefully ajMi
the picture of my dear little mothw
reading it, arose before me, and I
knew that not even the death of my
father, whom she had loved so devot
edly, would bring her such- intoler-
.able pain.
Again I read the letter through.
. Oh, how I wanted the consolation of
her loving arms. I wanted to put my
head in her lap and cry out my disap
pointment and sorrow. And then I
hemembered that she had only a lit
tle time to live and I could not sadden
her declining years with my sorrow.
It would not be brave, and above 'all,
the thing that I despised most in this
world was lack of courage.
Tells Of Tho Accident.
I pushed the letter one side, and
wrote another:
'Thia is to tell you, darling moth
er, that I arrived home this morning
to find things were not nearly so bad
as I had feared. John had an automo
bile collision yesterday, and while he
was not hurt, the occupants of the
other motor were badly injured: When
John telegraphed me he thought one
of them was going to die. Fortunately
the doctor has pronounced both of
the victims out of danger.
Of course I am very tired tonight
because I have been with John at the
hospital today, -and at many other
places where I felt my presence would
help John. I am not going to write
you a very long letter tonights but I
just felt that I could not go to sleep
without letting you know that every
thing is all right with your " loving
.daughter, , . KATHERINE.
. i This letter I sealed quickly without
reading it, stamped . it and called a
,man to mail it, before my': courage
should fall me. As the man came to
the door he said? :
t "Dinner is served, Mrs. Gordon.
After bathiing my face M stumbled
down the stairs, hardly knowing what
I was doing, for I had made the most
momentous decision of my. life; and in
doing so I had told my mother an
other He-for John, and that lie had
sapped away a Uttle more of my love
and trust in hinit ..
John entered the dining-room Just
as I did and smiled cheerfully.
"Good gir.1!" he said "I had it out
with mother after you were gone. She
is having dinner in her room, I told
her I would not have married Eliza
beth Moreland if She had been the last
woman in the world."
. I could not refrain from sayint:
"Would that have been the truth yes
terday?" - . .
Altogether Too Bossy.
Don't be nasty, he begged, "cause
we're going to besall right from now
oni and besides, Katherine, I think it
is. true I don't think I would have
married that woman under any cir
cumstances. She is altogether too bos
sy; I want a wife to comfort me. to
love me, and one for which my friends
will envy me. I doh't want one to in
terfere all the time with my big plana.
with her little feminine schemea."
Sometimes, John," I said "it seems
mat uott and nature interfere with
your schemes without asking vour
consent. -
He frowned at my reference and
knew that I should never be able to
make him reconciled to our coming
baby. My only hope was that It would
bring its welcome with it. As it was.
my reference changed my husband's
entire Ynood and he continued his dip
ner in sullen silence.

The Marion county commissioners
have awarded the orders for trucKS
called for in recently opened bids. The
order is apportioned as follows:' Fed

Salem firms, were' successful ; bid

There were 31 bidders. Otto J. Wil

company of Portland .offering Sterling
'trucks at $4750 were given considera

Portland firm of Hughson & company:
will make the sale of six Federal
trucks at $4045 each.
In making the awards the county
commissioners were obliged to keep In
mind the limited funds of the county
and to give the more reasonably priced
trucks consideration. Both the Otto
J. Wilson and the Hughson company
bids are considered to have been fair,
considering the widespread distribu
tion and use of these hauling units.
The Sterling award was made be
cause the county already possesses one
of these trucks, which has given gen
eral satisfaction. The main purpose of
the Sterling purchase, however, was to
simplify the purchase of repair parts,
