Activity in wool at paying prices
has given some stimulation to pur

early lambs are likely to continue

prophecy are high priced beef and

Why Not GiveHedin the
Coveted State Senatorship
The names of Henry Kuck and
Newton G. Hedln are the two out
standing ones for the nomination
of state senator from the 16th dis
trict of Oregon up for consideration
,i . , ' -..
before the nominating committee of
the district. One is a Dalle, man,
the other from the couthern end of
Wasco county. Both .r !,-,

over the district: both are rpnprtni ;
One i ready and able to retire; the
other still in the harness and full
. . . .
has little to say at any public gath
ering; the other is a - leader, a
pioneer, a campaigner, a recogniz
ed dehator. When we think in
term of money we think of Kuck;
when we think of leadership and
1 when we thi"k of leadership and
ah ill. il ..i. e
; "v,Mt we oi neain.
If Wasco and Hood River coun-
ties want a scnafbr who represents
activity and who I- fully equipped
by nature and experience, they need
j e dobatorT the speaker,
scrapper, the man in -harness. If
our water pipes are out of order we
get a plumber to fix them, a me
chanic to repair cars, a banker to
handle money. If we want a real
reprcentative in the legislature at
Salem we should use common naa
and Judgment and choo e of these
two good men the one who U the
better equipjped to handle the af
fairs of the district and who would
oppose all measures that tend

By BEN 1IUR LAMPMAN, Portland, Oregon.
AFTEN I try to remember fragments of thing-,
V As how many days has November, and namea of kings,
And measures for corn and barley, anf hay in the rtack
But alway, they will elude me and svon't come back. -But
always they will elude men and won't come back.
That which'l learn for tomorrow is quite forgotten today
As a mist that meet; a breeze and is driven away.
How strange I should remember, for many and many a June,
The lilt and the running laughter of an old tune.
When I open a book to follow the way a scholar should,
Fleet ag a glancing swallow my heart is off to the wood;
The lines are dim before me and have" no meaning, while
I stand in a lane by the river, at the end of a country mile.
There is wind on the water, and a sprinkle of dancing rain,
And I am so glad within me that the joy of it hurts like pain
I have closed the book without knowing what it i8 all about:
But well, so well, I remember the glint of a leaping trout
So I have given it over, and am minded not to try
Ever again to recover such matters as when and why,
And how many day, has November, and names of kings.
And any number of other very important thing:.
It seem I must be content with trivial memories, quite
Like one I have of the star'a on a windless winter night,
Or one of a golden wave on a acre I'd sown to grain
And how could 1 Jbe forgetting the whisper that heralds rain?
The be t of a sorry bargain yet in my heart I am glad,
For I have kept each picture that I have ever had
I've but to dream for a moment, and so in a moment to be
Dazed with a wind from ocean and filled with a sight of the sea,
But to reflect for a moment, and then to stand in the rain,
Silver rain by the river, where the bright trout leap again;
For I could never remember the rules that are found in books;
But how could I be forgetting the way that a runset looks?
