WRITE TO THEM
OUR READERS CAN HELP.
Persons Asking for Information ef
Oregon and Its Opportunities-
Write to Some One ef Them.
Oregon's greatest need is people,
not in the cities, but in the smaller
communities and on the farms
There are hundreds of people in the
East and South who want to come
to this Oregon country, but do not
care to do so until they know more
of the climate and opportunities.
The following list of people want
to come here and have the where
with to make homes and business
for themselves. Few of them are
from Missouri, but they all "want
to be shown." We wish the readers
of The Independent would write one
or more of these persons a letter,
giving a description of the country
here, the advantages, and tell them
why Oregon is a good place to live
in. Stick closely to the truth for
the truth is good enough. No ef
fort is made to classify these names,
but you can easily determine those
to whom your locality would appeal.
Every reader of The Independent
can find the time to write one letter
at least. By so doing many letters
will be written and much good done.
Read over the list carefully, pick out
one to write to and "do it now:"

TAKES THE SHOT GUN ROUTE.
Ne Cause Assigned for Suicide ef
Pacifio University Girl-. Had
Everything to Live For.
Coronpr E. C. Brown was called
to Greeuville, near this city, last
Sunday, to investigate the death of
Miss Elsie Burnett, the 1 7-year-old
daughter of Mr. and Mrs. N. I.
Burnett, of that place, who shot
herself with a 22-calabre target gun
the afternoon before. Mr. Brown
decided it was a clear case of sui
cide and deemed aa inquest unnec
essary, lne iiurnnis live on a
farm about five miles north of For
est Grove. Every circumstance of
the case points to deliberate suicide.
Miss Burnett left a note to her
mother, saying she wished to be
buried in white and without glasses,
which it was her custom to wear on
account of defective sight. She
had some little keepsakes which
she asked in the letter to have giv
en to certain friends, among the
little gifts being her canary bird.
Her father had purchased an ounce
of laudanum recently to use on a
poultice for his hand He had used
only about a teaspoontul, and the
remaining portion was found in
possession of the girl. A few min
utes prior to her death, Miss Bur
nett was playing on the piano, as
happily as usual. Her father,
mother and brother were in the
sitting-room. After finishing her
music, she passed through the
house to the front porch, taking
with her a 22 rifle. Tlacing one
end on a table and the other about
an inch from her temple, she dis
charged it, the bullet passing
through lhebcjt)killing her in
stantly. She wu) a student in
Tualatin Academy and Pacific Uni
versity, at Forest Grove and was
studying music with Miss Emma
Staehr. She had a cheerful dispo
sition and was a very popular girl.
Mrs. E. Liepold, with whom she
roomed, said she had noticed noth
ing unusual in her manner and does
not think she had any idea of tak
ing her life when she left her
house for her home Friday, about
24 hours prior to her death. Mrs.
Liepold says she had left the room
in good order, all her things being
in their accustomed place. The
cause of her death is a mystery, and
will perhaps never be known. Mr.
and Mrs. Burnett, the parents of
the unfortunate girl, came from
Minnesota about six years ago, and
have a valuable farm near Green
Postage stamps of the issue of
1907 at 6,000 presidential postofliees,
will bear on their face the name of
the state and the city in which the
postoffice is situated. The chief
reason lor this is said to be the be
lief that it will help to do away
with postoffice robberies and make
it much easier to trace criminals.
The postoffice robbery at Chicago
a few years ago is a good example
of the ease with which stolen post
age stamps can be disposed of, for
no trace of the ierpetrators was
ever discovered, although nearly
$100,000 worth of stamps were stol
en and these mostly in small de
nominations. Another reason for
the change is to enalbe the post of
fice department to determine the
amount of business done by differ
ent postoffices and prevent padding
through stamps sold by some offices
to residents who do business in ad
Rockefeller's income every day in
the year is $ 14.383-52, Every
hour of the 24. waking or sleeping,
playing r, jlf or skating, sitting in
church or superintending his new
house at Pocantico, Rockefeller is
sure that $6,840. is accumulating
for him. This is $114 a minute.
His fortune accumulates at the rate
ol $1.60 every time the clock ticks.

Why not carry the tollroad fight
into the state legislature and have
the law repealed which gives coun
ty courts the power to lease public
highways? Such a system is to
antiquated in this day and genera
tion. And as there is a determina
tion to stop grafting, if possible,
we do not know any better or speed
ier way to stop the tollroad graft
than to repeal the law, which the
next state legislature ought to do.
Tillamook has beep bottled up with
the tollroad graft and it is time to
put a stop to it, for now is the time
to open up the country, invite

ROSEVELTS PURPOSE PLAIN.
If Senate Does Not Act He
Reappoint Bristol, Other
wise He Will Not.
Washington, Dec. !. If the sen
ate committee on judiciary, upon
again reviewing the charges against
District Attorney Bristol, decides to
recommend the rejection of his nom
ination, it is not believed that the
President or any member of his cab
iuent will exert influence to have
the recommendation of th commit
tee overturned. In renominating
Mr. Bristol the President pursued a
perfectly consistent course, for,
while he withdrew Mr. Bristol's
nomination last winter at the time
the charges were filed, he sent it
back to the senate when he had re
ceived Mr. Bristol's explanation of
his famous letter. There was not
sufficient justification in that letter
in the mind of the president, to unfit
Mr. Bristol for office, although At
torney General Moody and other
officials of the Department of Justice
IUC U '1IU.1 ic view.
Mr. Bristol's conduct iu the land
fraud cases during the past summer
would not tend to turn the president
againt him; if anything, it would
strengthen him with the president
and, in sending in Mr. Bristol's
nomination at the opening of the
present session, the president mere
ly carried out his policy established
While the president believes Mr.
Bristol is qualified to fill the district
attorney's office, it is nevertheless
believed that if the senate judiciary
committee disagrees with him as it
did last session, he will accept its
judgment. In that event, it Mr.
Bristol's nomination should be re
jected, the president would make a
new appointment; if, on the other
hand, the senate should fail to act
on the nomination, the president
could consistently reappoint Mr.

A Wondertnl Magazine Bargain
for $i 35-
The most remarkable bargain in
interesting current reading matter
of this year includes an offer of Les
lie's Weekly (the famous illustrated
journal) for six months, Judge (the
great comic cartoon weekly) for six
months, and Judge's Library (a not
able magazine of fun, containing
each month ten or fifteen stories)
for six months, all to one address
for $3.35. As the price ot Leslie's
Weekly is $4.00 a year, of Judge
$5.00 and of Judge's Library $1.00,
it will be seen that this is less than
a one-half-rate offer. It is made for
those who subscribe to the entire
combination, to be sent to one ad
dress. This offers one of the best
holiday or other gifts that can be
made. It gives one-half year's
high-class reading matter, which
every one in the family circle will
enjoy, including two ot the most
popular weeklies, and one of the
most popular monthlies, all at a cost
of about 13'cents a week. Remit
to Judge Company, 225 Fourth
Ave., New York City. This offer
is only good for a limited time.

Habit is a remarkable thing. . It
is a force of unknown power till one
tries to overcome it. One may get
into the habit of idling, and he finds
his natural energy disappears. One
may get into the habit of working
hard and intelligently, and it grows
on him, till he cannot quit. How
ever, it is noticeable that this habit
is not so common as the other oue.
