There was a time not so many
dozen years ago when falsehood
and deceit were condemned and
c;jor a cprirms defects of
(.UUO 1.VA.S. . v
character, today lying is a fine
art and deception an accomplish
ment, if one may be permitted to
iadi?e troai observation. Do you
doubt it? Then put in a few
hours in sell examination, and in
general observation of other peo
Just recall how often you have
uttered "polite" falsehoods dur
ing the past month, and you will
be amazed at the number that
confronts you. Perhaps you have
been drilled into thinking these
little "society fibs" are permissi
ble if not absolutely necessary?
If this be true, give yourself a
moral shaking up and be convin
ced that lie is a lie, no matter
when, where nor why it is utter-
o, and that no one whose opin
ion is really worth having will
respect you as much after learn
ing that you are adept in the art
of "polite" lying. .
Deception, too, as encouraged
in society today through amis
taken idea entertaiued by so
many that it is "tact" or "pol
ish," is a -grave menace to the
morals of the rising generation.
If we teach by precept and ex
ample the false doctrine of being
"tactful" and "polished" regard
less of veracity and plain, straight
forward manliness and womanli
ness, where will we look, in the
coining years, for the absolutely
truthful and frank young man
and young woman in whose
hands we can safely entrust out
It is well to teach children to
be mannerly and respectful, but
the deceptions and insincerities
so commoa todav in so-called j
"best" society are but a gaudy
veneer that no sensible young
person will seek to acquire.
The agitation in Southern
1?entonof the subject of establish
ing a cannery for fruits and vege
tables should cause Corvallis to
Tab her eyes, sit up and take
notice. This is a subject to
which allusion has repeatedly
been made in the Gazette and by
various business men of the city,
but the agitation has so far bee.;
Are the farmers in the immed
iate vicinity of Corvallis willing
to be outdone and out-generaled
by their brothers in the section
mentioned? Is Corvallis willing
to fold her hands listlessly and
see a neighboring community
put in the identical sort of plant
that would mean increased pros
perity and growth to this section
if established in Corvallis?
It 3s certain that nothing is so
much needed in this city as busi
ness establishments with generous
payrolls, that would provide em
ployment for men looking for
work, and in this case put to
practicil and profitable use the
products of the orchards and ga. -dens
of the farmers hereabouts.
The progressive farmers of
Southern Benton recognize the
possibilities of a cannery and are
determined to make an effort to
secure one. Poor old Corvallis
has so far failed to "get next"
A very general and hearty in
terest is being taken throughout

Ycu will find everything suitable
for Holiday giving. We have
secured a selection of high class
and desirable gifts and you can
safely depend on the quality. You
need never feel ashamed of any
thing you give that you buy here.
From now on are holiday buying
days, but you are welcome to
look, as well as to buy. Make
your selections now, we will
store them for you and deliver
when you say desirable. Suit
able, sensible presents for men,
women and children.
No toys. Nothing to
childrens' Agricultuial Fair for
next year. Generous contribu
tions have been received from the
business men, and there are good
words irom everyone who would
naturally take an interest in the
matter, which .means every resi
dent in the county. It is first,
ast and all the time an affair of
the pesple, by the people and for
the people of Benton county.
For this reason, there has been
considerable criticism of the re
cent action of the county court
in refusing the use of the county
court room during the coming
fair, and also for donating only
fioo towards the fund, instead
of the $20C that was requested by
the committee. As the county
court represents the people of
the county and is not represent
ing any individual interests, it is
not quite apparent why the court
refused to aid fully a project that
is approved by the majority and
is certain to result in benefit and
financial gain to Benton county.
