This style of journalism went out of vogue years aero when
newspapers became newspapers instead of political organs and
l eased to color events to suit their politics. Nowadays the news
paper does not assume the responsibility for the views of its cor
respondents but makes them sign their effusions, so the readers
will not confuse news and propaganda. But the Oregonian still
clings to the discredited system of prostituting its news columns
ior partisan purposes.
The McAdoo pipe dream, without a scintilla of evidence to
verify it, is simply a smoke screen to conceal the huge expends
lures oi republican candidates especially the Leonard Wood

BRAINS AND BONE HEADS.
In discussing the functions of the brain, Arthur Brisbane,
,in one of his brilliant studies of the masterpieces of literature
that have appeared in the Hearst Sunday papers, says:
. "As time passes, the substance of which your brain is made
"sets," becomes, mentally speaking, hard as concrete. After a
certain age a man cannot change his opinions, he thinks he
doesn't want to, but in reality, he cannot." '
This probably applies to a large percentage of humanity, and
accounts for the reaction of age, but it seems probable that fail
ure to exercise the intellect has as much to do with the stolidity of
the brain as age. We frequently find ignorant youth much more
stubborn and set in opinion than intellegent age. It is a law of
nature, that failure to use any organ of the body results in the
atrophy of its powers, and the brain is probably no exception.
In the normal person, the mind ought to grow in power and
strength as long as health continues, and it does, if used. It has
been scientifically proven that persons in intellectual occupations
increase in mental power continuously, and outstrip those in pure
ly mechanical occupations, even though the latter were naturally
superior in mentality in youth.
The brain becomes "set" only when its growth and develo
pment are checked. This may happen in childhood as with the feeble
minded, or in youth, as with the "morons" or in the decade

Too many use brains as mechanically as muscles and other
organs. There is almost no limit to the individual's mental powers,
if they are persistently cultivated. But few ever pay any atten
tion to tne development ot mentality and are content to let their
brains solidify through non-use, and join the great army of bone
heads, as long as the brain performs its physical labors of di
recting the body, which process Mr. Brisbane thus describes:
"One nerve drives the heart faster, another holds it back.
And as the heart's action is controlled, so everything within our
bodies, 'fearfully and wonderfully made', is controlled from the
brain's dark cortex; muscles and nerves that regulate blood pres
sure, marvelous system that controls the body's heat so that blood
temperature doesn't change a fraction of a degree between the
equator ami the North Pole. And about all that automatic man
agement we feel and know nothing."
Are you sad and weary hearted, are you full of prunes? Come
and see my lyre get started, hear my cheer-up tunes. Do you
think you've cornered sorrow? I have griefs, as well; but I'm
banking on tomorrow ; hear my blithesome yell. I have dona a lot

life too hard? Come and hear a glad word spoken by a cornfed
