At tit it time there in something in the

Io not look so (.ir away for sub
jects of charity that you are obliged
to raise your vision to an angle that
makes it impossible for you to observe

lure to be deserving and poor people.
Many suffer in silence and endeavor
to keep their privation nnd hardship
away from the world. At th- preavnt
time there are poseibly some families
in our midst who have scarcely the
necessities of life. To these home
people, we would recommend, give
your gifts and extend poor aid.

FOR MORE IMPROVEMENT
A stranger, in looking over the city
o( Independence, might find reason
to think that tue residence portion
has not develoHvt in years past in
keeping with the surrounding coun
try. True we have many lyautiful
homes and valuable residences, and
the city, generally shaking, is er
hap bettor than the average in Ore
gon, iut the residents of a live town
surrounded by the beet and most pro
gressive section of the state, should
not be contentet with good enough.
Winter is ujon us at present and
the opportunity of reform in this ra
sped is not the most encouraging,
but just as soon as the leaves begin to
bud in the spring it would seem that
there ought to be a general awakening
among the property owner and be
fore another wet season seta in the
conditions should bo decidedly im
proved. We are not offering dictation,
but simply offering suggestions along
the line of development. Nothing is
mote inviting to the eastern home
seeker than to find a city w hose stores
and homes are well kept. No adver
tising that a commercial club or any
other civic body can do is more effec
tive than the matter of well-made
and well-kept homes and business :
fit of Oregon. Il hit made j;oh1
promise. I.at Stuil.iy the I'nli-r-prie
received a telegram from Mr.
llawley at Washington, 1'. C, in
which ho says; "Itiver and llnrbnr
Dill just paMfd House, t20,0(0 ad
ditional for improvements of Will
amette lUver for net fiscal yea,"
This means a great deal for Indepen
dence and all Willamette river towns
and in fact for the entire state, With
out goin deep into the matter one can
scarcely realize what a benefit this ap
propriation is going to l. It means
great developments, it means better
freight rates, it means better passen
ger accommodations, it means more
industry and it mean everything.
Fortunate indeed arc the towns on
the Willamette river and fortunate are
the people of this Congressional dis
trict that they selected such an able
representative. Mr. llawley has made
good at Washington from the begin
ing, and the end is not yet. He has
a way of accomplishing what he de
sires and a com prehension of what is
best for the jeoplewhon he serves.
