God, Give Us M en!
At this time, wjien a dozen or more candidates
for office are asking the voters of Washington coun
ty to nominate them, it might be well to see who of
the applicants measure up tc the standard set by
the author of the following impassioned lines:
God, Give us men ! A time like this demands
Strong minds, great hearts, true faith and ready
Men whom the lust of office does not k ill;
Men whom the spoils of office cannot buy;
Men who possess opinions and a will;
Men who love honor— men who will not lie;
Men who can stand before a demagogue
And brave his treacherous flatterings without wink
Tall men, sun-crowned, who live above the fog
In public duty and in private thinking.

Their large profession, and their little deeds,

Wrong rules the land, and waiting justice sleeps.

turn over the governorship and
senatorship to Democrats. The
| process of selection has been for
gotten by Oregon Republicans.
The “ bunch” has done the select
ing, aided by a few country news
papers in boosting the “ picked”
candidates and a trouncing at the
polls has been the result.— M c
Kangaroos can jump a fence

About 250 pairs of Ladies', Misses’ and
Children’s Oxfords— just the stuff for
Summer— going at

Get busy and save yourself from 50c to
$1.25 on a pair.
