Why not make a sort of stand
against what is evidently an un
fair deal? The people of almost,
any community can do wonder.

on a given proposition. This is
true. So wiiy noc organize a lo

son why if the master is properly
handled the business men of this
city, and property owners gen
erally, shouid not be able to
carry adequate insurance among
themselves and thus become in

who make no diiierence in rates
of insurance whether your water

A few evenings ago some of
our representative men were dis
cussing the matter and a senti
ment m favor of a home com
pany was in evidence- In regard
to why the rate of our insur
ance was not decreased, as was
expected on the completion of
tiie new system, the opinion of
tht.se gentlemen seemed general
that the San Francisco disaster
had sjrne bearing on tiie case.
Be tins as it may, a little self
help is a good thing at any time
and is a mighty good thing to
use in forcing a .square deal.
HOW ABOUT THE RACE?
In these days of so-called high
er education and general enlight
enment there are yet many evils
needing correction. We either
do nut stop to think, or thinking,
conclude to let "the other fel
low" apply the remedy. In the
propaj tion of man's kind there
is less atttniion paid than to the
breeding of hogs. No stock
ra ser who has enough common
sense to succeed in his business
would think of breeding inferior
Not so with the human race.
Here we find every sort of mix
up, good and bad blood (there
is nothing personal in this) men
tal weakness as well as physical
in both men and women. Moral
degeneracy cannot hope to pro
duce, as the hope of a union,
anything less than like degener
ates perhaps criminals of the
won.t type. There is much in
the saw that "like begets like,"
therefore is it not reasonable to
assume that m:re care should be
exercised in selling marriage
certificates? These little bits of
bond paper or artificial parch
ment cost only two or three dol
lars,, but they make possible, in
fact.; legalize and legitimatize
the birth of a being that may
;ost the commonwealth dearly
and who finally swings from the
gallows or becomes an inmate of
a convicts' cell for all the days he
Some people are responsible for
these conditions. Really, those
of sane mind are responsible for
all conditions, jsocial and cither
wise, and cannot hope to shirk
the duty of being the keepers of
those mentally, physically and
morally weak. That there is too
little attention paid to the fitness
of the contracting parties in the
matter of marriage is all too true.
Those who are looked upon as an
authority in these matters de
clare in strongest terms that the
race in some respects is retro
grading. If such be true there
can be but two causes for the
decadence, unfit marriage and
he mode of living in vosue.
It is hard to tell which way
the wind blows in California on
some problems. .Of late there
nas been great agitation in our
sister state regarding the exclu
sion of the Chinese and Japan
ese, particularly , the- latter.
From what has been given out
the impression likely to be estab
lished in the minds of persons
not versed in California affairs
-vould be that the people of that
state were almost a unit against
Asiatics. Such a view is discred
ted by the action of the State
federation of Labor in session
last week in Stockton, Calif
ornia. The Federation refused
to endorse the action of the
Humboldt county boycotters
against Japanese and Coreans
and all persons who employ
them. Another resolution com
mending the action of labor
unions in Humboldt county in
driving out Chinese who had
been shipped in also was voted
down. This shows a somewhat
strange change in the sentiment
of the California Federation of
Real Estate Transfers.

Last week the Perfect man
made this office a very pleasant
call. He gave the office force to
undersland that if he did not re
ceive his paper promptly at seven
o'clock on Friday morning he
didn't want it at all.
We are very sorry that he was
disappointed last week in not get
ting it on time, but we are la
boring under a load of care that
would break the back of even the
Perfect man. We are glad how
ever that he called and told us
how to get the paper out on time
at all times. In our humble way
we try to do things to suit such
individuals. We are well aware
that the Fernet man is never
late io his meals, that he is al
ways kind to his wife, ? that be
blankets, his horses . when he
comes to town on a cold ' day,
that he curries his cows before
breakfast and always washes
their udders before milking so
that no filth can get into the
milk, that he never waters .. the
milk he sells his neighbors, that
he never swears, that he never
gets but of patience under any
circumstances, that he doesn't
drink, gamble or use tobacco in
any form; in fact he is the Per
fect man. If we ; have omitted
anything please notify lis by re

"Old" Young People.
The number of 4,o"d" young
girls and boys nowadays is some
thing absolutely amazing. Ever
notice them, as you go about
your daily work and mingle With
the crowds here and there? Il
not, try it. ,
The girl of ten or twelve dress
ed as a young lady, posing as a
young lady and. aping the ways
of the grown-up; all the inno
cent girlishness gone and in its
stead a worldy air, a knowing
look from the eye aud a brazen
smirk on the lips, while a couple
of these mere .babies will carry
on a conversation with the great
est animation about 'he said,"
"we went," 4,my fellow" and so
on, until the listener turns away
And as it is with the girls, so
with the young boys. Smoking,
chewing, swearing, passing vul
gar comments about the opposite
sex; frequently going to places
where some men would hesitate
to be seen so goes the young
boys of the day.
As the scenes pass before one,
day after days, the querry arises,
"How long can present condi
tions last? and will the day ever
come when our girls and boys
will remain mere girls and boys
until they assume long dresses
and shed their" Buster Browns?"
