Thti"LiKon of the Alfalfa," taken
from the Fat Oregoniun, is worth re
peating. Here it is: 1'eople often
"kick" about their unhappy lots and
imagine that they are much abused
and much burdened. They vvuil about
unfavorable environment and go into
hysterics over their forbidding sur
roundings. There is a lesson in two great, lux
uriant, flourishing beautiful alfalfa
plants, growing on a high, dry, sun
burnt hillside near the high school
grounds in Pendleton, which should
knock all the pessimism out of those
who look on these splendid specimens
in their forbidding environment.
All about them the hot sun has
shrivelled the "pig weed" and scalded
the life from the struggling dandelion.
The grass is withered, the rag weed
is sickly and pale and suffocating
ilust covers the ground. It is appar
ently more than a hundred feet to
water and all about these two rugged,
symmetrical plants is the waste and
desolation of a sun-scorched hillside.
But there they stand: green, luxur
iant, flourishing in spite of their sur
roundings. . They are heedless of the
dry hillside, unmindful of the wither
ed "pig weed" and dandelion curled
up in early death. They do not wilt
away and waste their strength in the
hot sunshine. They are rooted deep
in the faith of life, firmly planted and
