ASTRONOMY STILL AT FAULT
Man of 8clence Forced to Admit Exact
Results From Their Calculations
Are Not Possible.
The celebrated observatory at Green

lonjjltmk", wnH founded by Charles II
In 1075, imilnly for the punxise of ln
veHilnHtlut; the movement! of the moon
In the Interest! of imvlpitlon. Although
in tit iutff cnlnn two hihI a half cen
turlen (istroiiniiit'in have worked at the
problem, the union has not yet become
entirely umemible to their mathemat
ics. In a recent report of the olsrr
vntory nt Greenwich attention Is In
vited to Dim liK-reusim,' deviation be
tween the calculated position of the
moon In the ky nnd Its real position
kIiowii by the Greenwich observations.
The deviation ban lately been growing
In a serious manner. The error last
year was more tbnn twelve times ns
larije as the error twenty years ago,
and the nveraKo annual Increase dur
ing the two decades has amounted to
half a second of arc in longitude. The
reason that astronomers have failed
In getting exact results from calcula
tions bniwd on the dynamical laws of
rravltatlon Is Dosslbly the existence
of some attractive force that they have
not yet discovered, although the result
may also be affected by the true shape
of the earth, which still awaits ac
curate determination.
Dsadly Weapon of Warfare.
An Invention by a French wireless
engineer, M. Dunoyer, will completely
change the character of naval war
fare, If Its claims are fulfilled, says
the London Mall. It consists of what
be calls an "electric safety lock." The
mechanism to direct the course of a
torpedo end necure Its explosion
against an enemy warship can be
worked not only by wireless warea
of the right length, but also by a
proper sequence of Morse signals. Any
error In the right sequence of dota
and dashes would run the mechanism
down to soro again and render the
torpedo harmless. Each torpedo
launched would have Its own key se
quence of dots and dashes, and so the
enemy would be unable to tamper
with It

SCULPTOR'S USE OF CEMENT

Curiosity.
At Monterosso, near 8pezla, Italy
there standa an architectural curiosity
a gigantic figure of Neptune, con
structed of cement and used to 8upport
the extreme end of a terrace for a sea
side villa. The house is the Villa Pas
tine, and the statue Is the work of Ar

Rome.
A small promontory on which the
villa Is built presented many difficul
ties to the architect, but he finally suc
ceeded In building there a very com
modious and comfortable residence.
fhe statue, which Is wonderfully life
like. Is about 33 feet In height. The
body, which, like the head, Is built of
re-enforced cement, Is hollow, and con
tains a spiral staircase. Considering
the nature of the material with which
Signer Mlnerbl had to work, he Is to
be congratulated on the fesult of his
labors.

"All For a Song."
"ITe has sold his future for a song"
they said of a rich man's son who, In
stead of taking advantage of the un
usual opportunities open to him for a
worth-while career, was whlllng away
his golden years in the Great White
Way.
"All for a sone" has come to mean
to us "paying too muchfor a whistle,"
any undue sacrifice or waste for some
thing that Is worthless or only of
transient moment, particularly the
superficial.
It has come down to ns from the
day when lta significance waa literal
As a token of her appreciation of the

beth ordered Lord Burleigh to present
him with 100, which In those oays
was a small fortune. Upon this Lord
Burleigh Is said to have exclaimed
"All this for a song!"
Penn and Land Buying.
The story that William Penn bought
from the Delaware Indians aa much
land as a dozen bulla hides would
cover and then cut them Into narrow
strips to cunningly enable him to trick
the Indians by encircling a vast stretch
of territory la not true. This la a very
old story. It was told In remote times
of Dido of Carthage. The legend Is
that Dido built that city after buying
as much land aa a bullock's hide would
cover. She cut the hide Into strips,
getting a large bit of real estate In
the trapsaction. The story reappears
In the case of the Dutchman In Irv
Ing's -Knickerbocker," who bought as
much land from the Indians as Ten
breek's trousers would cover. But
Tenbreek had on pairs of trousers
enough to cover the Island of Manhat
tan. Pertinent Questions. s
Among the many Irish anecdotes
told by Canon Hunnay, author of sev
eral books under the pen-name, of
"George Birmingham," Is the follow
ing. An Irish gentleman who heard
of the death of a great enemy of his,
who had harassed him for mnn years,
remarked: "Well, It's a comfort to
think that the devil's got that fellow
at last" A clergyman who happened
to be present felt " nis auiy iu ir i
monstrate against this uncharitable
view of the dead man's condition. He
snid be hoped that, in spite of all that
bad passed, the poor man might have
escaped the extreme penalty. "Well,"
retorted the other,, "if the devil hasn't
got that fellow, nil I can say Is that
I don't see much use In keeping a
devil at all."
Rata as Food.
Doctor Kane, the Arctic explorer,
said that one of Uie worst curses In
the far North were the rats that in
fested his ship. Nevertheless, when
In want of other food, he was glad to
eat them sometimes chopped up and
frozen into tallow balls.
He wrote : "During the long winter
nights Uans beguiled his hours of
watch by shooting rats with bow and
arrow. The repugnance of my com
panions to share with me this table
luxury gave me frequent advantage oi
fresh meat soup, which contributed no
doubt to my comparative immunity to
scurvy." .. - .

OLD MAN OREGON
The spirit of the west is the spirit of youth, of faith and
of hope. It is the spirit of optimism, of progress, of
achievement, of adventure. All things are possible and
therefore become actualities, because of the courage and
enterprise and enthusiasm that materializes vision.
It is this spirit of the west that created its wonder
cities, transformed its deserts into fertile fields, harness
ed its streams to turn the wheels of a thousand industries
and developed the resources of its great empire.. It is
this spirit of youth that vitalizes the call of the west and
populate the last frontier.
Oregon is of the west and yet has less of the spirit of
the west than other. coast states, hence her growth has
been slower than that of her sister states, her develop
ment more backward. The conservation of her pioneers
is reflected in the Oregon of today. Isolation and pro
vincialism bred a pessimism that retards progress. Brim
full of oportunities, the optimism and enterprise to take
advantage of them is lacking. A Los Angeles coultl
never have been created out of climate, hot air and a
desert in Oregon nor could a Seattle have been magi
cally built to dominate the shipping of two continents
although nature provided Oregon the great river of the
west to control its commerce. The faith in Oregon's fu
ture and the contagious cooperation that faith engenders
are lacking.
Oregon is often cartooned as an old man and the
characteristic is a fitting one. Oregon seems to have
been born old and Oregonians lacking in the imagination
of youth,its audacity, daring and adventurousncss.
They have the rigidity of middle life, if not of age, and
ifyuanbaii 001 si 9aitbiiiut suisisnquo jo poiAap ojb
chilled at birth, enterprise too otten aampenea, ana pro
gress viewed with suspicious distrust. Not all Oregon
ians are pessimists by any means, but the majority are,
and the pessimist prospers because he is the victim of cir
cumstances and not because he is their master.
Nearly every Oregon community has the broad vis
ioned few whose inspiration is the spirit of the west
who have with difficulty held aloft the torch, but their
endeavors are repeatedly forced to flounder amidst the
breakers of hostile provincial resistance, their enterprise
tossed helplessly on the waves of captions and cynical
negation or cast adrift in the doldrums of indifference.
The loyal support, the hearty cooperation, the commun
ity patriotism that sustains and unhold the builder are all
too frequently conspicuous by their absence.
0! ye of little faith in Oregon and her future, her re
sources and possibilitieswake up! " Discard the pessi
mism that destroys, cultivate the optimism that cons
structs. Communities do not build themselves, and their
only limit is the size of the men building them. They are
the result of the initiative, enterprise and courage of the
few, sustained by the loyalty, enthusiasm and coopera-.
tion of the many. Support industry and development,
encourage enterprise and expansion in the only -way it
can be encouraged, with your fealty and your money.
Catch the spirit of the west, that sees the future large
and great. Smiling at reverses, resourceful and confi
dent, build for tomorrow and realize the vision for
faith in Oregon and its future is the fountain of eternal
youth Old Man Oregon isseeking for rejuvenation. Sa
