The Associated Press to exclusively
ntltled to the um lor publication of
aU newa dispatches credited to It or
met otherwise credited in this paper
and also local news published herein.
Alone with the demand for peace are woven the customary
partisan platitudes, admiration of the administration, and of
themselves for beine democrats. One of the candidates confesses
Mr order of u. & coremment. an J a slogan that "there is no greater honor than delegate to a nation
al democratic convention" while others camouflage their personal
ambitions as future office holders with high sounding but mean
ingless phrases for regulating the nation.
Judge G. T. Baldwin of Klamath Falls, among the candidates
for delegate at large, does not mention the League, but wants
"America for Americans." Charles Emory Dye of Oregon City
also fails to mention the Treaty, but wants "real liberty, subject
only to rights:" Frederick V. Holman of Portland declares that
he believes "in true Americanism and is opposed to socialism and;
paternalism ; Kichard W. Montague of .Portland, filed no slogan
or platform, neither did Dr. J. C. Smith, once candidate for gov
ernor, but both are on record as favoring the League of Nations.
All the other candidates commit themselves definitely to the
League. Will E. Purdy of Salem believes in curbing the middle
man and in "Bryan as the party's greatest asset." Dr. J. F. Reddy
of Medford "believes in the League of Nations, with or without
reservations, willing to try anything once."
Among the first district's candidates for delegate, all favor
immediate ratification of the treaty, except Al Waugh of To
ledo, whose slogan is "your man is my man, let's elect him" ; and
Thomas Whitehorn of Corvallis, whose slogan is "40 years a
democrat," and "believes in the principles of democracy", what
ever that may mean. '
In the second district, Frank L. Young of Lakeview alone
implies opposition to the League of Nations in his platform de
claring for American institutions "without asking the advice or
consent of any other nation on earth."
Among the third district) Candidates, H. B. Adams of Port
land believes in perpetuating the two old parties but is silent on
the Treaty. Walter B. Gleason of Portland believes we are be
coming too paternalistic as a government, but says nothing
about the League. - George J. Smith believes in "American ideals
and institutions" but says nothing about Wilson's peace policy,
while Robert II. Strong refuses to commit himself on any subject.
No matter who is selected, a majority favoring ratification
of the Treaty of Versailles seems assured.

it was painted black and green, and cost me many groats. "It is

will look absurd, this noble bus beside. The pride of ownership
'twill give, and fill your soul with, bliss, and it will last you while
you live, I wot and ween and wis." And now my tumbril's out
of style, it looks like Noah's ark, and when I'd push her for a mile
I go out after dark. For if I take it out by day, by jokers it's
absurd ; they ask me if it is the dray the Pilgram Fathers used.
My wife declares she'd rather walk, and proper pride maintain,
than ride with me around a block in that ancestral wain. And
thus the motor game is played upon the trustful chump, whose
last year s model looks decayed and ready for the dump. My
van is just as fine as silk, so far as chugging goes; but people of
the critic ilk turn up the scornful nose; its hood is badly out of
date, the windshield slant is vile, the body lines, which should

gig that's up-to-date and new; and in six months, I'll bet a fiz

The news of Rusty Wren's sign,
"Boy Wanted," spread like wildfire
through the whole of Pleasant Valley.
Rusty had put the sign out at day
break. And before sunset as many as
fifty of the field and forest people had
come shyly to Farmer Green's door

position, and some of them merely

wanted to see the sign for it was a
most unusual sight in that iighbor
hood. There were others, too, such as Fat
ty Coon and Tommy Fox, who said
that while they didn't care to visit
Farmer Green's place In the daytime,
they expected to call there during the
night and take a look at Rusty Wren's
home and the odd sign upon it.
Yes! So quiet a person as Rusty
Wren, who never wandered far from
home, had become famous in a day.
Yet It proved to be a very bad day
for Rusty's family, because he had al
most no time at all in which to try to
bring home any food. . No sooner had
row. "My wife is calling me. And I
must see what she wants.
So he disappeared inside his house,
to return shortly with a doleful look
upon hig face.
"I'm afraid you won't do," he said to
the young English sparrow.
Ha!" cried the stranger Imperi
nently. "It's easy to see that you wife
rules the house. And since that's the
case, I'm very glad I'm not going to
work for you." He few away then,
with a jeering laugh which made Rus
ty Wren feel quite uncomfortable..
Now Mrs. Rusty had overheard the
talk outside her door.. And she had
no intention of letting and rude, noisy
English sparrow even If he was a
young one come inside her house.
That was why she called to her hus
band. And she made the matter so
plain that Rusty knew there was no
use of trying to change her mind for

It was a discouraging business, to
say the least. Though Rusty had ad
vertised for a "boy," persons of all
ages appeared and wanted to work for
him. Some of there were old enough
to be his grandfather. And, what was
worse, they were all so big that they
couldn't squeeze through Rusty' little
round door. (The hole in the syrup
can, you will rememher, was only
slightly larger than a quarter of a dol
lar.) Of course, there was no use of his
hiring a helper that could do only half
the work. What Rusty wanted was
somebody that could not only catch
an Insect, but bring it right inside the
house and drop it into the mouth of
one of his children.
At last when Rusty had almost giv
en up all hope of finding anyone of
the required size, a young English spar
row flew up and said boldly that he
was the very person for the position.
He claimed that he could get' in and

Kay Boomed For
House At Lunch
An early boom for Thomas B. Kay
for speaker of the next house ot rep
resentatives was launched by Col. E.
Hofer of thi city at the regular Mon
day luncheon of the Commercial club
Monday noon. . Hofer, speaking In be
half of the Marten County Taxpayers
league, invited the club members to
attend a meeting of the league to be
held here Saturday morning. In the
course o his remarks he intimated
very strongly that Kay headed the
league's legislative ticket and declared
that he not only hoped to see his elec
tion to the state legislature but his ele
vation to the speakership.

be permitted to remain on the land,
under a bill passed Monday by the
house and sent to the senate. This,
however, would be on condition that
later use of the property for power
uses would be preceded by compen
sation for Improvement.
The bill also authorizes the inter
ior department to sell timber on land
withdrawn as power sites and to ex
change any government timber lands
with private owhers. ,
Tho next thing I heard ivas a voice
that (teemed to float to my ear from
a great distance, jt "Well, she
will be all right now," und then 1
opened my eyes. I never knew that
eyelids could be so heavy; It seemed
to me that mine weighed pounds
and I looked 'up Into the face of niy
kind old doctor. .. .. .
I knew, of course, the moment that
I saw him that I .must have len un

send for him ,und long enough jr

In my night dress, and for all that I
knew, I might have been ill for weeks.
Alice came forward und said, "Don't
lalk, Katlieilne, Juet lie still."
"Hut I don't understand. The last
thing I remember, you asked me to go
wllh you to se Ittilli. Was that hours
or daya ago?"
"It was about two hours ago, Kath
erlne, when you fainted."
"I have fainted so ninny times late
ly. AVlint Is the mutter with me, doc
tor?" The old doctor looked at me curi
ously, "Don't you know what is the mailer
with you, my dear child?" he asked.
Never Fainted Before.
"I lmven't the slightest Idea.. My
heart has always been strong enough
until now. I never fainted before in my
life until within the last few months.

myself these things over and oyer, but
It meant nothing, literally nothing. Be
side them In my brain was written all
John's neglect of me, and his utter sel
(ishness where I was concerned.
I think perhaps, what crystallized
this In my mind was the fact that
since I had inherited money John had
been so kind and thoughtful of me. He
could never do anything nlco for me In
the future, never give give me a caress
or even a smile that I would not think
