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 he Is one of society's Incurably "lame ducks," for whom society has shelter, but society cannot be expected to shape the whole economy of its life to the demands and diet of "lame ducks. ' The 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 of hope for the future, never showed so few marks of a dissolute, immoral. In human or irreligious life as today. A1 cohol, in its various forms, may not be a n absolute necessity of human exist ence, but It is so inseparable from our civilization that we cannot abruptly abolish Its use or extirpate its produc- ; tion The best we can do Is to educate our civilization to full knowledge of its proper use and the direful results of its j abuse.

It can invite or repel, sigh or smile, be m eek or haughty, tear a passion to tatters or hum bly seek for giveness. It can also tell the story of health. A woman who suffers from weakness and disease in a woman ly way sits in sorrow and dejection while her healthy sisters enjoy themselves. She may be naturally beautiful, naturally attrac tive, naturally interesting and animated and witty, but the demon of ill-health is gnawing at the very vitals of her womanly nature, and she soon becomes a withered wall flower in comparison with her brighter and more healthy sisters.

Dorris, a resident of Tillamook, in 1847, on Christmas. Her second marriage was to Dr. J. W. Watts, at LaFayette, January 31, 1872. With the exeeption of a year’s resi dence at The Dalles, four years at Ore gon City, during which time her hus band was receiver of the United States land office under President Hayes’ ad ministration, and one year at Albany, Mrs. Watts has been a continuous res-1 ident of La Fayette. During her first marriage six children were born. Only one, Sidney G. Dorris, survives. An exciting adventure happened to Mrs. Watts in crossing the plains. She was captured by the Sioux Indians at Fort Laramie, but was finally given up by the chief who captured her. by the threatening of Bosh Rickner. The in cident came near causing serious trou ble with the Indians, as the chief fol lowed the train for several days, and tried to steal her from the wagon. r ____ Mrs. Watts is ___ hale ___ and ______ hearty, and shows the remarkable temerity and hardihood of the early pioneer settlers of Oregon. i ,the Chehalem valley on December 13 of that year, where her girl hi w ere spaBtr Aha married Morris a merchant at La Fayette.
