Net long ago the parents of a
baby in New York died and the
little child was given to the sis
ter of the deceased mother, who,
of course, was the aunt of the
mt. She proved a good
mother to the lictle charge and
was of good character, but in
course of time she married a
niLn of religious faith different
to what she 'had been raised,
also at variance with religion of
the deceased paients of the
charge to which she was minis
tering. Tiie grandparents of the
orphan went into court and were
awarded the custody of their
grandchild. What hocus-pocus
the judge based his decision on
is a .oystery. It seemed to be
the Idea of His Honor that a
child whose parents are dead
mus-t be brought up in the faith
which they professed while liv
ing. Strange decision, to say
Had the judge any assurance
that had the parents lived they
would not have changed their
religion? Does he hold that
there is only one road that leads
to realms of eternal bliss? and
does he opine in secret that the
one in which he assisted this
little waif to be reared is that
one? One can almost fancy such
a judge going so far as to de
lare that the faith a child is
born to it shall follow; until it
outgrows a guardian. A little
farther along on such an argu
ment and it is doubtful if parents
would have a right to the posses
sion of their own children if they
changed their faith after the ap
pearance of their progeny. , To
make the whole proposition,
from first to last, absurd, we
will presume that if a father
dies and later his widow marries
another man of a different re
ligion some power should step in
and take the mother's children
We all respect a wholesome
and rational religion. It is a
good thing, but when nonsensi
cal it is deplorable and none re
gret the follies perpetrated in
the name of religion more than a
sincerely devout and broad
minded person. These ultra
nonsensical acts do more to breed
infidelity and skepticism than
anything else. They excite liberal-minded
people with con
tempt. If there be but one pathway to
the "better land," through the
portals of what church does it
run ? Who can say his church
and his religion is the only
means of salvation? What then
becomes of the millions belong
ing to other denominations who
are striving to live honorable and
upright lives? What becomes of
the untold millions of people who
died before this particular church
was dreamt of? Let each and
all choose that religion which af

Plenty of Work But no Response
From This Class,
In an editorial the Oregonian
sizes up the situation" in regard
to tbe loafers that are found in
Corvallis and in every other town
these days, when help has never
been in such demand as now.
The man who loafs while the
summer days slip by is the man
who asks for credit and gets it
not when the winter rain is upon
the land, and whose family suf
fers for want of decent food and
comfortable raiment. The edi
One of the marvels of a busy
season, with its demand for labor
in every line, is the number of
men who stretch their listless
length day after day on the grass
of the park blocks or doze on
the park benches over the sport
ing columns of the daily papers.
True, the grass is cool and the
shade inviting at present; but it
does not require a very lively
imagination to picture these same
grounds in the winter, when
Nature is taking her annual rest
and does not invite the Summer
lounger to share it with her.
The call to labor is resounding
throughout the land. No able
bodied man is now idle except
from choice; the wages offered
everywhere and in every voca
tion are living wages, with some
thing to spare for the rainy day
that two months hence will re
peat itself more or less contin
uously throughout the Pacific
Northwest until Spring.
It is not work, however, that
the idler wants. He would even
scorn "employment" unless it
came to him with the "soft-
snap" guarantee. And it may
be as well to say, though the
statement may shatter the lan
guid hopes of the soft-snap man,
that this guarantee does not ac
company the demand for labor
that is heard on every band.
Employers weie never more will
ing than now to concede the
truth of the assertion, "The labor
er is worthv of his hire," nor were
they ever less ready than now to
paittr with men who work uv.dcr
compulsion and perforin as little
actual service for the stipulated
.vaye as is possible.
There is work in the harvest
fields, but the soft-snap man does
not and need not turn his steps
that way; soon there will be
work for hundreds of hands in
the hop yards, but if the soft
snap man winds his way thither
looking for a job that will be
simply an outing with wages as
an attraction, he will soon dis
cover that hoppickiug does not
fill the measure of his desire.
Later there will be prunes to
pick and potatoes to dig, in either
of whfch occupations a willing,
industrious man can make wages;
but the soft-snap man will not
bend his back to such lowly
tasks. Dairymen need help, but
their need is not met by the soft
snap man. The sawmills were
never so driven with orders as
now, and never before was help
that deserved the name more
sure than now of a place in the
lumber industry, at good wages.
But the soft snap dots not lurk
in and about milliards.
Even in the, so-called lighter
vocations the demand for labor
has no soft-snap guaraniee.
C'erks are wanted m department
stores for use, not for ornament;
shipping clerks find 110 soft-snap
behind the enormous piles of
goods waiting to hi shipped, and
even the office boy lias need of
legs upon which 1 ear him
about on pressing errands, ard of
a cheerful voie in which to re
spond to the insistent business
call of the telephone. In brief,
there is work to do in every de
pat'mcntof labor, business and;
trade. But there are no soft
snaps awaiting the listless ap
proach ot the park idler, the
street corner lounger, the bum
mer at the Men's Resort or the
lodger in the Salvation Army
barracks. And if ever there was
a time for the edict, "Those who
will not work must not eat,"
which was the basis of industrial
discipline in the large families
of a past generation, that time is
HADE FROH NATIVE ROOTS.
SAFE AND RELIABLE.
That the roots of many native plants,
growing wild in our American forests,
possess remarkable properties for the cure
of human maladies is well proven. Even
the untutored Indian had learned the
curative value of some of these and
taught the early settlers their uses. The
Indian never liked work so he wanted his
squaw to get well as soon as possible that
she might do the work and let him hunt.
Therefore, he dug " papoose root1" for her,
for that was their great remedy for fe
male weaknesses. Dr. Pierce uses the
same root called Blue Cohosh in his
Favorite Prescription," skillfully com
bined with other agents that make it
more effective than any other medicine in
curing all the various weaknesses and
painful derangements peculiar to women.
Many afflicted women have been saved
from the operating table and the sur-
? eon's knife by the timely use of Doctor
'ierce's Favorite Prescription. Tender
ness over the lower pelvic region, with
backache, spells of dizziness, faintness.
bearing down pains or distress should not
go unheeded. A course of "Favorite Pre
scription" will work marvelous benefit
in all such cases, and generally effect a
permanent cure if persisted in for a rea
sonable length of time. The "Favorite
Prescription " is a harmless agent, being
wholly prepared from native medicinal
roots, without a drop of alcohol in its
make up, whereas all other medicines,
put up for sale through druggists for
woman's peculiar ailments, contain large
quantities of spirituous liquors, which
are very harmful, especially to delicate
women. "Favorite Prescription" con
tains neither alcohol nor harmful habjt
forming drugs. All its ingredients are
printed on each bottle wrapper. It is a
powerful invigorating tonic, imparting
health and strength in particular to the
organs distinctly feminine. For weak
and sickly women, who are "worn-out,"
or debilitated, especially for women who
work in store, ofiice, or school-room, who
sit at the typewriter or sewing machine,
or bear heavy household burdens, and for
nursing mothers, Dr. Pierce':; Favorite
Prescription will prove a priceless benelit
because of its health - restoring and
