good literature. This can be easil)

the following paragraph:

of doing the rpik outlined above.
That will tahe"7?ars. But our cit-
the foundations of nn institution
that will gradually grow and im
prove ni the town grows, fo one
need be frightened regarding the
expense. It is planned so as to be
a burden on-no man, and the run
nine expenses will be small. If
the people want a free public library
and reading room conducted on
business methods, they can have
it. It's up to them.
A great temperance movement is
spreading over the entire country
It is prophesied bv conservative
thinkers that the question of pro
hibition will be a national issue in
a few yean if, in the meantime, it
has not been settled by the passage
of state laws which prohibit the
manufacture and sale of liquor
Especially iu the South is the tem
perance movement noticeable. Many
Southern states now have cither
state prohibition or local option
laws, with the sentiment to curtail
the sale of the stuff spreading rap
idly in other states. This move
ment is one for which to be thank
ful, and it is to be hoped that it
will continue to spread until it con
quers the entire nation.
One of the chief reasons for the
present strength of temperance sen
timent is the belief that is becoming
prevalent among business men that
it is an unwiae business policy to
teVter or allow to exist any institu
tion that is so destructive of wealth
as is the saloon. If the business
men of the country can be made to
see the wastefulness of the modern
saloon both in wealth and man
hood the saloon will soon be put
out of business tor alt time. There
can be no real and lastins prosper
ity as tone as the saloon is allowed
to flourish. It is the greatest de
stroyer of wealth in the work! to
day. It takes a man's wages and
gives bfet in return a stuff that de
stroys his manhood and damns his
soul. With the nation crying for
laborers to develop its resources,
the saloon sends thousands of strong
and able men to the grave every
year; and it keeps the courts busy
and the prisons filled in. the work
of straightening out and penkhiug
the crimes that it commits. Of all
the wasteful institutions with which
humanity lias been afflicted, the
saloon stznds pre-eminently the

This result of a study of the elec
tion returns causes no surprise. It
is what always happens. When
ever there is a fight for pure gov
ernment and higher ideal, the
forces of decency always find ar
rayed against them the forces of
plutocracy. And the fight itivar-
iably discloses that the millionaires
and their ilk have waxed fat and
lined their pockets with profits se
cured by bribing public officials to
betray their trust, and by trafficking
iu immorality and vice. Such is the
work of plutocrats as a class. And
thoe who take up the cudgels for
better and purer government always
receive their greatest support from
the middle classes. What a rotten
civtliratiou ours would be if it were
not for the decency of the common

N. II. Pinkerton, wlio is having
a well drilled nn his ranch
on Agency Plains, receutlv
struck water at a depth of
50 feet. There were two small
veins of water that flowed a little
less than 350 gallons in 34 hours.
On account of the small flow Mr.
Pinkerton ordered the drilling to
continue and will go deep enough
to get a supply of water sufficient
foi all ranch purposes.
Thonsands of bushels of grain
are bcinc hauled to the warehouse
at Shaniko by farmers in the

money is being paid for it at the
present time. The financial panic
has tied up money to such nil ex
tent that there is no currency with
which to make payments, and the
best the farmer can do is to get a
warehouse receipt for his grain;. It
is causing quite hard times at
