THE BBAUTIFl'L WILLAMETTE.
(By Sam L. Simpson)
From the Cascades’ frozen gorges,
Leaping like a child at play.
Winding, widening through the valley
Bright Willamette glides away;
Softly calling to the sea;
Time that scars us.
Maims and mars us.
Leaves no track or trench on thee.
Spring’s green witchery is weaving
Braid and border for thy side;
Grace forever haunts thy journey,
Beauty dimples on thy tide;
Through the purple gates of morning,
Now thy roseate ripples dance,
Golden then, when day, departing.
On thy waters trails his lance.
Limpid; volatile, and free—-
To be buri#d
In the bitter, moon-mad sea.
County Official Paper
On the roaring waste of ocean
Soon thy scattered waves shall toss,
’Mid the surges’ rythmic thunder
Shall thy silver tongues be lost.
Oh; thy g.immering rush of gladness
Mocks this turbid life of mine,
Racing to the wild Forever
Down the sloping paths of Time.
Softly calling to the sea;
Time that scars us.
Maims and mars us,
Leaves no track or trench on thee.

AUSTIN CRAIG ,
In thy crystal deeps inverted
Swings a picture to the sky.
Like those waverifig hopes of Aidenn,
Dimly in our dreams that lie;
Clouded often, drowned in turmoil,
Faint and lovely, far away—•
Wreathing sunshine on the morrow,
Breathing fragr.nice round to-day.
Love would wander

Hither poetry would dream;

Society cannot rescue a single man or
woman by statute from the spiritual
slavery of vice and sin. Every man
and woman as a free moral agent must
do this for himself; society cannot save
him from himself by attempting to
make it impossible for him to encoun
ter temptation. If a man is not a free
moral agent and responsible for his
actions, he is a proper subject for the
doctors, for the restraint and treatment
of the asylum. If he wants to be sober,
he will refrain from drinking, if he de
clines to deny himself, he must expect
and ought to receive the retribution
which no law ran avert from him. If
he is too weak to reform himself, then

survival of the fittest, those who are
able and willing to keep step with the
living, not the dying, world, is the law
of civilization. The world will not
stop its march to pick up stragglers or
drive Its brutal, lawless bushwhackers
into the ranks o f order and discipline.
The world, through moral evolution
and the lessons of human experience,
has become not a slowly dying world,
but is a living world, wnose face, full

our civilization to full knowledge of its

and dejection while

may be naturally beautiful, naturally attrac

gnawing at the very vitals of her womanly
