It is possible that none of us
are safe and entitled to rest in
a feeling of security from the
hand of an assassin. Few peo
ple realize that they are to be
the victims of murder until the
fatal moment, therefore none of
us may be certain that we are
not to be victims at some time
in the future.
One of the most cold-blooded
murders of late years within the
history of the Northwest occur
red in Spokane during the night
of August 27th when James F.
Sloane was murdered by his son.
The son, Sidney, is only 17
years of age and the killing was
planned and executed with such
attention to detail and secretive
ness that would suggest the
hand of one steeped in long
years of crime. The motive for
the crime was robbery the sum
sought was 500.
And to think that for so paltry
a sum or any sum for that mat
tera 17-year-old boy should be
come the slayer of his own
father. What can be done?
Wbire can the blame of such
degeneracy be laid? Is it in
herited? or is it engendered by
years of indulgence? It is not
right to blame parents in all
cases for the waywardness of
their offspring, as one does not
have to look far to find a family
with a black sheep.
Children of the same parents
will grow to become model
young men and women, all save
one child, perhaps, and that one
will prove utterly beyond re
demption. Here you have an
example of the results of parent
al restraint and discipline. The
same family may contain both
saints and sinners. True, in
many cases the parents are to
blame and should be held respon
sible to a certain degree, but
there is a case now and then
. which is clearly beyond control
of any sort.
The world may be growing
better, let us hope so, at any
rate, but it is improving none
too rapidly. When we as a peo
ple reach that state of develop
ment which is thought possible
for the race then there will be
no such thing as awakening of a
morning to find our neighbor to
have been murdered, by his own
son or any other person.
For long there has been a
studied and continued effort on
the part of the churchmen to
make marriage first, last and all
the time a religious form. We
will grant that these peo
ple, many of them, are actuated
by good and sincere motives, but
there h nonsense in everything
if carried far enough and mar
riage is on the list. -Pope Pius
recently undertook to make it
necessary for the men and wo
men of Spain to declare their
religion upon entering the mar
riage state. This was so absurd
and far-fetched a proposition
that tha former order of things
was rssiox'ed by royal decree.
Loi there be creeds and dog
mas and allow those of faith in
this or that particular "ism" the
right to believe in that which
affords them the greatest solace
for what they., fancy is their
souls, but for the love of truth
and honor do not impose a con
dition, religious or otherwise,
that will make a man a liar and
a hypocrite before ha can marry.
Let those who so please deify
their marriage. This is strictly
the business of the contracting
parties. Should a man or wo
man not desire a religious form
of marriage it is their own busi
ness. To declare that one is not
eligible for marriage because
they do not embrace a certain
form of religion would be ultra
folly, and the better and broader
minded of the ministry do not
hesitate so to state.
In every state sa far - as we
know the matter of marriage in
the eyes of the law is a civil con
tract. It may be of interest to
note in this connection that the
United States, as a nation, has
no marriage law. The matter of
marriage is left to each state
within the union to regulate and
control as best suits the people
of that state.
Put your money in a sock and
then lose the sock is about on a
par with banking your coin in
an Eastern bank just ."at present.
Not many weeks ago the people
of Chicago and' vhinity were
throwing all sorts of fits over the
fact that the Milwaukee-Avenue
bank of that city had closed its
doors. Several people became
so despondent over the loss of
their money in this failure that
they suicided. Now it seems
Philadelphians are to undergo a
similar experience. -
During the last fewdays the
Real Estate Trust Company of
the Quaker City closed its doors,
being reported short in coin ot
the extent of some seven mil
lion dollars, Frank K. Hippie,
president of the burs ted bank,
speculated on his own account
with funds banked with his in
stitution and proved a poor hand
at the gamble. Shortly after the
expose Mr. Hippie's death oc
curred and the statement.that
he did not diel from natural
causes is boldly made.
Perhaps it is all well that Mr.
Hippie is no .longer an"! earthly
infliction. The bank having
failed, the knowledge that the
man who failed it breathes no
longer will be the only consola
tion possible for a certain class

Corvallis Man Enjoys Vacation

Colonel J. K. Phillips of this

Treating Wrong Disease.
Many times women call on their family
physicians, suffering, as they imagine,
one from dyspepsia, another from heart
disease, another from liver or kidney
disease, another from nervous exhaustion
or prostration, another with pain here and
there, and in this way they all present
alike to themselves and their easy-going
and indifferent, or over-busy doctor, sep
arate and distinct diseases, for which he,
assuming them to be such, prescribes his
pills and potions. In reality, they are all
only symptoms caused by some uterino
disease. The physician, ignorant of the
cause of suffering, encourages this prac
tice until large bills are made. The suf
fering patient gets no better, but probably
worse, by reason of - the delay, wrong
treatment and consequent complications.
A proper medicine like Dr. Pierce's Fa
vorite Prescription, directed to the cause
would have entirely removed the disease,
thereby dispelling all those distressing
symptoms, and instituting comfort in
stead of prolonged misery. It has been
well said, that "a disease known is half

If you have 125 loads of manure to spread and yon are going to plant 25 acres'of corn or wheat,
or have a 25 acre meadow we will tell you how you can increase the value of your crop this year
from S4.00 to $8.00 per acre or more than enough to pay for a spreader. We issue, a 48-page book
entitled "Practical- Experience With Barnyard Manures'." which explains the whole situation.
Our Plan is not a theory. It is an actual fact, backed up by actual experiments extending over
a period of 13 years. To give you an idea of what this book contains, we show results of experi
ments made with various crops where 5 loads of manure were spread per acre by the old method,
and 5 loads by the new method, on corn ground. The latter shows a gain of S4.S0 per acre. On
another field and in another state, it shows a gain of S5.60 per acre, and on a clover and timothy
meadow, a gain of $8.00 per acre.
This Book will be sent free to anyone writing ns. It is worth $100.00 to you, bu it won't cost
yon a. cent. If it doesn't do you any good, it won't do you any harm. Write us now and let us mil
it to you. It is brimming full of valuable information.
