TROLLEY A OIVILIZER.
Many people remember the old horse
car Una on Firt Street, Portland,
whan It wat the only line In the
city. By and bya cam the ataaiB
motor, tb cable car aad the trolley.
With tha trolley comet city extension,
cheap honiea for workingmen and
paolona conulry bomea for boalnea
mea. Without iwolal planning fur
social, moral, orrellglou affect the
trolley I distinct gain to civiliza
tlon. The crowded city la always
fceterlni aore on the body politic
pjvsrly. Tic and orlnie are iutiniate
ly aaaoclated with narrow street,
" dark alley, cheap boarding house
and the beer aalooa. Hot the trolley
U tliluniug out the heart of the city
aud flttiug op the suburbs. Working.
Mn own their owu home, (o back
and forth to their labor every day,
with houeat pride and self reapect that
count on Ilia rig-tit aide of the serial
lsdger. And It 1 helping to restrict
It would l a great gaiu '" civili

Hue I ranching out the center
of population In til direction. No
greater opportunity exist for that
radical philanthropy which promise,
to help other at the same time stimu
lating other to lidp thennolvc.
How would it wort fur our million
alr to turn their attention in a
measure from endowing college to
endowing street car !!,
What a wenlth ol mritiiitiK may be

The aim was called tl y of the

daisy bore a linking rritemhlaiice to

eye of day or the ,day't eye which in
time wat shortened to dairy.

cial panic called down many a high
flyer and taught many to seek safe
landing before getting entirely out
of light Ballooning it alwayt dan
gerous. The next time any of our business
men want to puzzle their customer
let tliftp try the following: Two
boyt went ont to tell SO applet, divid
ing the number 'equally between them
and brought home 25 cents. The next
dty one boy wit tick and the other
took ont the AO applet telling firat
three for one oent and then two for
oent end brongbt'back only 34 cents.

Pig killing time inggeata the odd
distinction peculiar to the Englith
langoage by which the animal change
its name at toon at the breath it out
of itt body. The 01 become) beef
the tktep become mutton and tb hog
becomes pork. The old man will gie
a braat button to the Brtt one who
will tell the reaaon why.
This lithe naoal time for the church

bad people good, good people better
and better people better ttllL Some

weak need strengthening, the lazy
need atimalating and the dead either
a returrectlon or a decent burial.
Appearance are deceitful. A lady
riding out in her bnggy dressed in
silks and satins with a gold watch
chain heavy enough to tie op the dog,
