Some few issues ago the Ga
zette voiced a sentiment favor
able to .President Koosevelt as
his own successor m lyuis. W hen
first mentioned . by this paper
very little attention , had been
jiven by the large papers of the
country to the discussion of this
anatter, although they had been
snaking; various and sundry ef
forts to select timber suitable for
the . presidency when President
"Roosevelt retired.
During the last week or more
we notice that the metropolitan
papers of the East and West are
commenting on the possibility of
Boosevelt accepting another term
as the chief man of the nation.
It is a fact most satisfactory ; to
chronicle that in the discussion
being waged at present there is
tiowhere visable any objection to
President Roosevelt. The mat
ter seems to hinge wholly on
"whether he will or will not ac
cept , '.'
Some of the papers state em
jshatically that Teddy will not
under any circumstances -accept
another term as president ; be
cause he said last November that
he would not. ' They argue that
the president means what he
says. Well and good; true, he
aneans what he says, but he is no
fool and might change his mind,
-as many a wise man before him
"has done.- "' : '. ' '..
We have strong faith in the
loyalty and love of country in
president Roosevelt. ; If condi
tions were such that in his mind
there existed a great need of his
service to his country,Jand the
people demanded it, we believe
he would serve again. The pres
ent administration is certainly
proving one of general . purifica
tion in all ways. Trusts, corpor-
ations, and combines are toeing
the mark more than they were
:and this is mainly due to the in
dividual effort of our : strenuous
president '
But. of all things that Presi--dent
Roosevelt will have to his
credit, the one great thing that
"will mark him in. history, is "his
-connection with : the Panama
canal building. - To carry such a
gigantic task to completion has
been the dream of .many great
aneri and ' many have already
proved their inability to cope with
"4he matter. ; '. : ;'; , ' s. ; '
The president is greatly in ear-
, mest in the matter of canal, . but
cannot hope to see it anywhere
mear completion during his pres-
ieht term. He recently dissolved
a commission of his own ereation
and has chosen another.""" In so
doing he cast no stigma upon any
anember of the commission just
quietly stated that the commis
isionwas not satisfactory. - That
"was enough. If there was blame,
3ie took It. In this he had the
.courage to face "the truth and un
do that which he had previously
-done. '
If he faces the truth and cour
ageously accepts a mistake in an
instance of this character may
we not figure that he would, in
order to complete the canal and
satisfy a large majority of 80,-
"000,000 people, reconsider what
he said about never again ac
cepting the presidency? Of course
he would reconsider; of course
under these conditions lie would

The Educations! Exhibit of Ben
ton County School Children
Goes to the Fair.
During last Saturday and yes
terday the large show windows
of the establishments of R. 1 H.
Hssioa -and H. Harris were
ablaze with the educationl ex
hibit of ibe school , children of
Benton county. xThe exh bit is
destined for the Lewis and Clark
Fair and Supt. penman will
ship it to Portland today. J
,. That ... the children -' of our
schools have succeeded far be-
lyond expectations, will not be
fortunate as to see their work on
display. . How mere children
could do some of the things that
have been exhibited is tocj much
for us, and yet it was in evidence
in great quantities from various
parts of the county and all bona
fide. There is exhibited in much
of the work contributed evidences
of rare skill. Many items of the
exhibit are the result of rare
talent, and there are many
parents in this county who have
children for whom they should
make every , effort, in order to
develop the gifts of nature to
their offspring.
Some of the work done denot
ed nothing short of genius. For
instance, there were in the col
lection one or two maps that
looked as though they had come
from the hands of a firs t-class
engraver. If printed they could
not have been more perfect. An
other . map that attracted great
attention was of a patch-work
bedspread, laboriously ; worked
into a map of Oregon. Each
county is plainly showed and
eacn in dinerent color as many
colors ad pieces as "Joseph's
coat." This quilt would rejsice
the heart of a "webfoot" on
frosty night. .?
There are all kinds of . "busy
work' ' for little "tots" : in the
collection and nearly all schools
of the county are represented in
this class of educational effort,
Some of the work is really
amusing and the more you gaze
at it the funnier it becomes. In
one's mind you fancy you see
some "little shaver" at the task
set him, working away as though
his very existence depended up
on it, his face wrinkled into
seriousness befitting a statesman.
There is some relief ma p work
of every country of the globe in
evidence and it is fine, very fine.
It will not be equalled at the
Fair, much less excelled, is our
guess. , On these maps are show
ed all the mountains, lakes, rivers
and valleys of the country
pictured. : ; - ' : -l- , :lr .;;
Other maps are drawn shoyf
ing the , products of every sec
tion, the grain - and fruit belts,
the animals and regions they in
habit, mineral districts,' in fact
there seems to be nothing omit
ted, f
One or two schools have sent
in collections : of Benton county
woods. There are various shap
ed little blocks of wood, nicely
ponsnea, ana laDeiea in sucn a
manner as to be4 readily under
stood.1: ;;";' 7 :;r'-;-;V:--.
All fogether it is a really great
exhibit of what our school chil
dren can do. The many, many
anxious . and weary hours the
little fellows have labored to
bring this about for the glory of
Benton should be an object lesson
to many older, people. These
children are to ; be men and
women in a few brief . years and
they , will fall heir to the present
responsib'lities of their fathers
and mothers ; cares and trouble
will T be : their . inheritance in a
large degree and they 'are now
preparing for this time. Will
they be prepared? Yes, in most
cases they will work on to even
better things than - their fathers
and mothers knew, as they are
enjoying better opportunity for
preparation than had their par
ents. Supt Denman, while he had
a lot of patience-trying work to
do in putting the exhibit in pre
sentable shape, is very proud of
it nevertheless. He' thinks it a
winner so say we all.

Kidney Trouble, which caused me great
pain, suffering and anxiety, but I took
Electric Bitters, which effected a com

great benefit in general debility and
nerve trouble, and keep them constantly
