The Southern Oregon weather has
broken Its record for being change
able in the last few days. It began
with a heavy rain and flood which
caused the creeks to sheer from
their courses In several places, after
which there was quite a severe snow
storm and freeze which has lasted
for four days. The snow Is at
present four inches deep on the level.

Th actor on the stage of life .
He has to play his part
With no one In th wings to prompt
Or signal htm to start
He slowly blunders on his war
Without the printed text
To tell him what to do or say
And what to tackle next
Mo manager la standing back
To criticise hts art
Or order him to hit the track
And from the scene depart
He has to work It out alone
With patience, toll and skill.
His sole reward a cruet or bone
Or just a bitter pill.
No spangled garments clothe his form.
No royal robes are made
To keep him sheltered from the atom
Or to his shape lend aid.
He picks up In the marts of trad
Such clothing as he can
At bargain prices ready made
On the Installment plan.
The actor cn the stage of life
Must softly come and go
And feed his children and his wife
Without the footllght's glow.
And when he aids a noble cause
Without the hope of pay
He has no thunders of applause
To cheer him on his way.
