Ho will Astoria hold a sue
cussful regatta with its citizen!
all red hot at each other over a
third rata custom house appoint
ment. The Oregonian tnakea this
unkind prediction: "Look out
for rain September 10. State
Fair and hop-picking will then
be in full swing."
Portland's latest directory,
now on the press, claims 178,705
population for that city. Now
listen to Tacoma's howl and
hear Seattlo's screech.
The city council will do a
good turn when an ordinance is
passed abolishing tho ' oard
signs that swing out nfenace
ingly over the sidewalks.
Within the next thirty days
therft will be a quarter of a rail

picking in the Independence
district. See that you get your
A car shortage bill and an
auti-pass bill are two measures
that are likely to be introduced
at the next session of the legis
lature by the Polk county de e
gation. Nearly all the hop yards in
the Independence diatrict are
owned by white men. They are
men who have h.d experience
in hop culture and treat their
pickers with all due consider
Under the heading of "Car
Shortage and Bankruptcy," the
Oregonian warns the railroad
people of the danger of the in
itiative being invoked by the
people. Representative Elect
Jones of Independence has
already served notice that he
will be on hand again r at the
next session of the; legis ature
with his car shortage bill.
Though be and Judge Harris
were turned down at the short
session of 1903 Jones is not in
the least discouraged and with
the sentiment much stronger
now than it was irr 1903 to back
him,itf is quite likely a car
shortage bill will be put through
at the next session. And ' while
not radical, it may be depended
upon that Jones will get up a
bill that will meet tbe demands
of the time.
Earthquake experiences are not
new ones in the city of Valparaiso,
which next to Santiago, is the larg
est city in the South American
republic whose domain extends
along the shore of the Pacific for
many hundreds of miles. In 1822
the city wae nearly destroyed by an
earthquake and its progress since
has been repeatedly checked by

ike latest consus figure obtainable,
was eccordsJ Kultln of nearly
1200,000. It it !ocat on narrow

Life fa A PDMle
Life is a puzzle,
All sanes avow,
But never to vexing
A problem as now,
Since the muck rake's been busy
And stirred such a etew,
Nobody can hardly
Know juBt what to do.
To eat you must decide on
You will or you won't;
You'll die if you do,
And you'll starve if you don't.
If you're sick disease threatens:
In drugs dangers lie;
If you take then you're poisoned;
If you don't you will die.
Th air's full of microbes;
; To breathe it is death,
And yet, to be living,
You must draw yonr breath.
All money is tainted,
As bad as it's painted,
But to live you muit have it, .
Whether painted or tainted.
In water is typhoid,
In wine ruin's brink;
So when yoa are thirsty
There's nothing to dnnk.
Our grandpas and grandmas,
Who were not so wise,
Just ate, drank, and physicked
And lived good, long lives.
But we, with our knowledge,
Fear from darkness so dawn,
Doomed if we stand still,
Wrecked if we move oa.
No step oan we take, bat
We fear we will rue;
Alarmed if wt don't,
Scared green if we do.
Yes, life is a puzzle.
i And bitter our cup;
We can't guei it right,
And we won't five it opt
Another Good Man 6dm Wrong?
