lion and ruin; and now, with a source
of magnificent gratitude, I am prlbi
leged to meet one great life saver, P.
K. Thomason of Turner, and hearti
ly extend congratulations for bis ef
forts and achievements. But, more, 1
congratulate Turner upon having such
' a citiien, and still more upon having
the good sense to know and value I
him. It his work but leads a few of
the boys to a proper appreciation of
Tirtuous manhood, and helps them to
avoid the mistakes common to youth,
he is duly repaid for the efforts he
baa put forth during the past five or
six years.
Mr. Thomason la state contractor
for the flax grown here and stated
that the state haa over three hundred
acres contracted at the present time,
Man after man has been taken
from the penitentiary or house of cor
rection and put to, work on his flax
farm, who after a few weeks found
a home and employment and became
honorable citizens. He has sent men
to work in different places where
their employes have never known of
their previous position and regarded
them as trusty and responsible work
ing men. There Is a lot of good in so
called convicts. Not half the men con

tations which confront many a young
man In the cities, can be found from
time to time boys and young men who
have been paroled from the state In
stitutions. This kind foster father
'with a love for humanity and its cause
frives them encouragement and em
ployment and a renewed start in life
which many times has proven a great
' benefit, Mr. Thomason Is reluctant
about telling of his experiences, and
What he did say was far from tna
aplrit of braggadocio. He Is In the
work wholly because he loves to do
frood for suffering humanity. He has
fostered and encouraged men from
the state Institutions who are today
holding responsible positions as a re
sult of the encouragement given by
this generous and kindly "dad" to all
After the days work, which affords
ultabln remuneration, of course, the
boys and their foster father find en

ant One evening, not very long ago,
Mr. Thomason arranged for a smoker
at the farm home and there were sev
eral young men ' present. Ice cream
and cake wee served, two or three
boxing matches were made a part of
the program and a general good time
was had. But there Was one man,
whose name is not for publication,
who Deemed to be quiet and unusual
ly dissatisfied. He took no part In the
entertainment and his sullen fit caus
ed uneasiness on the part of his as
noclates. As they were going out to
milk the next morning the young man
aid: "Dad, last nlht was the first
time I ever awoke to my real situa
tion. I start In as a wharf rat, my
parents bavins died when I was an
Infant. From that I went to a reform
chnol, served nly time and was dis
charged. Was sent up again and
again. Finally I landed In the peniten
tiary, and have served time In three
different state Institutions, but I nev
er realised my situation as I did last
night. From this on, dad, I am going
to be a man." Since he left the farm
the young man has held responsible
positions In Salem and other Oregon
towns and Is now employed by a re
sponsible firm in Seattle. A letter re
ceived by Mr. Thomason a few days
gt contained the announcement of
his engagement to a Seattle young
lady. This Is but one ot many In
tpiipea of a similar nature.
"It la discouraging at times," said
name through error or evil associates.
This is what Mr. Thomason hopes to
avoid and he is making his vocation
a grand success. It ought to find en

How to Remove Easily
Here's a chance. Miss Freckle-faco,
to try a remedy for freckles with the
guarantee of a reliable concern that it
will not cost you a penny unless it
removes the freckles; while If it does
give you a clear complexion the ex
pense is trifling.
Simply get an ounce of Othlne
double strength from any druggist
and a few applications should show
you how easy It is to rid yourself of
the homely freckles and get a beauti
ful complexion. RaVely Is more than
one ounce needed for the worst case.
Be sure to ask the druggist' for the
double strength Othlne as this strength
is sold under guarantee of money
back if it fails to remove freckles.
