Of Domestic Happiness !
A pretty cottage in the suburbs,
with a lovely green lawu eloping
gently to the street and flowers
flowers everywhere. And the man in
the picture is a model husband so
kind hearted, and considerate of his
wife's happiness and well being that
he allows her to mow the lawu sev
eral times a week or as often as it
needs it. No doubt he even consents
to her getting up early in the morning
to chop the wood and kindling.
Some people stem to think chop,
ping wood hard work, and after
calm reflection we are inclined
to agree with him. Rut to mow
the lawn with one of oar lawn mowers
this is not work, it is pleasure.

SENATOR FULTON SPEAKS
Speech rt Opera House in Behalf
Hon. 0. W. Fulton, U. S. senator
from Oregon, spoke at the opera house
Monday evening in behalf of Binger
Hermann republican candidate for
congress. W. H. Hampton chairman
of the republican committee intro
duced the speaker. As a speaker, Mr.
Fulton is of the class that may bo
termed powerful. He has a strong
and pleasant voice, a pleasing pres
ence, and a most effective delivery.
In the opening of his speech he
eulogized the late Congressman
Tongue, expressing sorrow at the
event which had made it necessary to
elect a congressman at thin time. He
said lis had no doubt that Binger
Hermann would be elected to con
Kress, giving as a reason the supposi
tion that men would use the same
business judgment in public matters
that they would iu private. He made
a strong plea for Mr. Hermann on
par'.y lines, citing his bearers to the
records of the two parties. He spoke
kindly of Mr. Reames from a personal
stand point but ridiculed the idea
that a democrat could be in harmony
with the administration, referring to
the charge that Hermann was out of
harmony. This latter allegation was
denied by Mr. Fulton, who said he
knew positively that Mr. Hermann
resigned tram the land office because
he disagreed with his superior, Score
tary Hitchcock, concerning the minor
details of the work and that the dis
agreement was not one which reflected
on the character or ability of either
man. As Mr. Hermann was the sub
ordinate it was natural tliat he should
be the one to resign rather than the
secretary. From a purely business
point of view also he urged the elec
tion of Mr. Hermann saying that a
democrat could not get the advantag
eous committee assignments whih a
republican could and that it was
in the committee where the real work
is done. He presumed that the voters
want the man who can do the most
for Oregon. In conclusion he made a
short address to the young men who
were Just takinr their places among
the voters and urged them to read the
history of their country and be guided
by the records in the selection f their
