Grants Pass W. O. T. TJ. will hold
their regular meeting February 1, in
the parlors of the M. E. chorea.
Mrs. C. O. Beckaian, saperiuteudeot
of the department of "Rescue Work"
is preparing the program. Mrs.
GmIibui has consented to give a talk
ou the subject. Yon are invited to
(tend this instructive and helpful
meeting. The meeting under "Moral
Education" (Purity) was held at the
residence of H. L. Gilkey, January 18
as announced. After a brief business
session, Mrs. H. L. Gilkey was in
troduced and au Interesting aud in
structive program rendered.
The piano solo by Miss Laoosta
Man gum and the violin solo by Miss
Walter were especially enjoyed by all.
The paper by Mrs. Bertha Courtney,
on "Child Pority the Safeguard of
Society," contained practical sugges
tions which aroused . lively discussion
among tliose who are awake to the
evils which beset the pathway of
children. As a remedy for some evils
among small children at school, it
was so guested that mothers acquaint
themselves thoroughly with the length
of time required for children to reach
the school and send them at the proper
time. Dear mothers, be vigilsut.
The attendance of 60 members and
friends proves an interest abounds,
and with God's richest blessings upen
our efforts, may we continue in the
good work. Three members were ob
ligated and received the little bow of
white ribbon which all Christian
women are orged to wear.
"The white ribbon is symbolical
not only of purity and peace, bnt it
includes all the correlated reforms
that center iu the protection of the
"Do any hearts beat faster,
Do any voices brightea,
To hear yoar footsteps on the stair,
To meet you, greet yon, anywhere?
Life wars not worth the liviug,
If no one were the better,
For having met thee on the way,
And known the sunshine ol thy stay.
Give as tby God is giving ;
To no one be a debtor I
So hearts shall faster beat for thee
And faces beam tby light to see.

A Hard Pltvc to Boom.
The Roeebnrg Review editor baa
this to say of conditions in bis town :
"It is little use for the looal editor
to waste his lungs and sprain his
spine in trying to boom a town when
the citizens all stand around with
their bands in their pockets and in
differently wait for something to turn
up. If the capitalists or business
men do not put their shoulders to the
wheel and do a little boosting it is
oseless for the editor to try and boom
things. He can write "boom' - articles
till he gets bald headed, but if the
citizens themselves do not take hold
and pobIi, the town will forever stick
lu the mod. Of what use is it for the
local paper to suggest improvement
aud new enterprises if the suggestions
are not acted opon. One man cannot
boom a town. It requires the oon
certed actions of the citizens. When
one man shoulders a town and at
tempts to carry it ther are always a
lot of cranky kickers ready to jump
ou top of the load. Unity of action in
what counts. "
