For lo! these many years it
has been a favorite saying that
merit will be recognized and re
warded. The idea that real
merit' is always rewarded for
meat's sake is absolute "tommy
rot " The "Success" magazine
flourishes by harping on this
idea, and other magazines and
certain newspapers have fallen
into line and carried the matter to
the point where it becomes al-
rnncr rhp nrattlft ' of a nhild.
The idea shows no sign of rea
son, observation, philosophy nor
In every novel there is, of
course, a "love sick" hero and
heroine, who are represented as
meritorious characters and ulti
mately they succeed. The sicker
they are with the love malady
the greater their merit and the
more signal their, success in
time. But this is in the way of
novels grown-up folk's fairy
tales. Look about for your heros
and heroines in . real life and ob
serve how scarce they are; also
that they are generally about as
poverty-stricken as people get to
This is not to say that those
who have succeeded are not de
serving, but simply to explode
the idea that there is an abun
dance of wealthy men awaiting
an opportunity to lavish money
and precious jewels on their fel
lows who evince meritorious
qualities. In this day and age it
is well to remember that no mat

who poses as an authority on a
given thing or subject to be an
ignorant ape in reality, and de

the scenes for all the glory he
accepts. Go into the 'colleges
and universities and you may
find greater minds and better
qualifications among the under
teachers t han in the heads of de
partments. The same is true in
all businesses. It is not always
so, but it may be so. ' In fact, to
sum up, a person of meritorious
qualities has just about the same
chance of success as a man of
lesser ability. but greater
"push." All sorts of people suc
ceed and fail alike and the idea
that it is an infallible rule that
merit shall be rewarded is but a
fairy story-
We are now on the eve of hop
l.c i . jstin tho Willamette Val
ley. The real importance of the
hop industry to the people of this
siion is a matter but little
s'uJied by the masses. It brings
to our people hundreds of thous
ands of dollars annually and
those dollars stand for necessi
ties of life in many instances;
they also buy comforts innumer
able. Picking hops is a task of such
character that women and chil
dren can engage in it and make
as much money as any man;
therefore -it becomes a sort of
family affair, as fathers, mothers
and babes are to be found in the
yards. Her; is practically the
last opportur i.y to ,nake money
for the winter supplies; this is
the last chance for the student
to secure money to assjsfe-iirH-througif
college; it provides the
wherewithal to purchase clothes
and books for the youngster of
ithe public school.
In - a multi-
tude of ways the hop indastry
l l .. e t. : - .

to all classes of our citizens,' as
they are 11 affected - by hops in
a gaf or jess degree.
Without making a plea for
anti-local option, it may not be
out of place- to dwell uponx our
consistency, or inconsistency; as
a people. Aside from beer
brewed from hops there is little
or no Commercial demand for
the products. A bale of hops
would make yeast enough to J
raise all the bread required in j
Benton county for a year so,
according to many good people, I
we have only a legitimate need
for a very small quantity xf
No, we do not use our hops,
or the "poison" brewed from
them, but we help harvest them,
secure our "pin money" for the
task, that thay may be sold
abroad to degenerate and de
moralize some other people.
Many who cry out against the
curse of rum (and it is a curse)
are to be found in the hop yards
today taking money for1 assist
ing to make beer. Those who
are opposed to beer brewing
have a perfect right to their
views and the expression' there
of, but when they turn right
around and accept money to help
manulacture the "booze" for
what they term the damnation
of some other people, a fellow
who professes to be a trifle shy
on high and mighty moral in
stincts fails to see by what pro
cess these good people justify
their course likewise their con
sciences. But perhaps this is
not for us to know, nor to in
quire about.
It might be better for the
many men, women and children
who pick hops if the yards were
plowed up and sowed to wheat
but there's nothing in wheat.
Bad moral proposition, isn't it?
We need the money have just
got to have it. In view of the
urgent need of the money, and
the knowledge that "charity be
gins at home,' we will quietly
pick our hops and sell them
where they cannot harm us.
Meanwhile it snail ever remain
our christian duty to work for
the general up-lifting of our fel
lows. Oh, Consistency ! Where
art thou?
In Moment of Insanity Former
. OAC Professor.
a cnui or norror .wept over
Corvallis, Saturday noon, when
the news was .passed frni lip to
hp that ProF. F. M. McE? fresh.
a lortner rngmy rsspece-d p.o-
fessoi of OAC, had committed
suicide at his home near Silem
I ne details or trie sad alt or are
given as follows in Saturday's
Oregonian, in a dispatch from
Salem, dated Friday
t. M. Mcfc,Hresh, superinten
dent of the large Wallace' or
chard near this city," committed
suicide this afternoon bv shoot
.if . it i
ing nimseii in tne neaa witn a
shotgun. Temporary insanity is
the only possible explanation o
his act. McEi fresh was one of
the best known and highly es
teemed fruit men -in this part of
the valley. He was a graduate
of the University of Illinois and
from 1898 to 1 90 1 he was iro-
fessor or botany and entomo; .ay
at the Oregon Agricultural Col
lege. In the Fall of 1901 he
took the superintendency of the
Wallace orchard and filled it with
entire satisfaction to the owners.
Mr. McEl fresh was a conscien
tious man and worried greatly
whenever the work of the bis?
orcharH did not proceed to the
btit interests of his employers.
He was just finishing the harvest
of a 300-tou crop of pears, but in
the last few dnys many pickers
left to go to the hop yards and
he worried, ovrr that.
He ate hi .nondav meal as
usual today uml sMve int'"uctions
for the atilrnoou wcrk. He
then went to the fruit house,
placed the muzzle of a gun to hi.
hcad and fired. His head was
nearly severed from the body.
He was alone in the building at
the time.
Workmen who- were .well ac
quainted "with him, and to whom
he talked a moment before enter
ing the fruithouse, saw nothiDg
unusual in his manner. " ;
McElfresh was a native of Illi
nois and was about 35 years of
age. He was married in. Febru
ary 1905 to Miss Gertrude Ewing
of Oswego, Ore. There ? are no
McE! fresh was well known to
Oregon fruit men.. 'He attended
horticultural meetings and fre
quently delivered addresses of a
practical nature. Funeral ar
rangements have not been made .
To Go South,
If plans now on foot mature,
the largest- shipment' of - vetch
seed that has ever gone out . of
this section will i.leave Corvallis
this week. " L,. Brooks, the
well-known rancher,' is, to be the
shipper, and there will be 81,000
pounds of the seed in the carload:
The destination is the Southern
States, the exact point not being
given out. ,
Mr. Brooks, from the time-oi
his arrival in Benton county from
the East, has " been known as a
man of progressive ideas, always
ready to assist in any public
movement for the betterment of
the cousty, city- or his particular
neighborhood, and with his usual
foresight, he has for a long time
given much attention to vetch,
realizing the possibilities in its
production as a money-maker for
the farmer.
The shipment that-will leave
here this week has been gathered
from all sections of the county,
and while, thefigures in the deal
are not stated, it is safe to assert
that Mr. Brooks will come out
of the transaction with a "speck"
to his credit, since he seldom' gees
into a business proposition mere
ly for bis health. .
John Schroeder, the well-known stu
dent of OAC, accompanied bv his sister,
arrived yesterday from Portland. - They
expert to go to Newport , today, accom
panied by Mies Nellie Cameron and her
brother, Amy Cameron, for a week's out
ing. Mr. Schroeder will re-enter OAC
this month. '.r
Whose Say-so is Best ?
With-nearly all medicines put up for
sale through druggists,. one has to take
the "maker's say-so alone as to their cura
tive value. Of course, such testimony is
not that of a disinterested nartv and
accordingly is not to 'be given the same .
credit as 11 written trom disinterested
motives. Dr. Pierce's medicines. - htiw
ever, form a single and therefore striking
exception to this rule. Their claims to
.the confidence of invalids does not rest
solely upon .their makers' .say-so or
praise. : Their ingredients are matters of
public knowledge, being printed on each
separate bottle wrapper. Thus invalid
suilcrors are taken, into Dr. Pierce's full
confidence. -Scores of leading medical
men have written enough to fill volumes
In praise of the curative value of the
several ingredients entering into the
well-known medicines. '
, Amongst these writers we find "such med
ical lights as Prof. Finley 'Ellinsrwood. M. D.,
of Bonnet Medical College, Chicago; Prof.
Hale of the same city: Prof. John M. Scud-
dor. M. 1).. Into of Cincinnati, Ohio; Prof.
John King, M. D., lato of Cincinnati. Ohio:
Dr. Ciovcx Coc of New York; Dr. Bartho
low, of Jefferson Medioat College, of Pa.,
and scores of others equally eminent.
