.WHERE THE WEST BEGINS
Out where the hand cla&pa a little
Out whero tho amilo dwells a little
That's whoro the west begins;' o
Out whero the sun ia a little brighter
Whero the snows that fall are a trifle
Whoro tho bonds of home are alible
That's whero the West begins.
Out where tho skies are a triflo blu
er, Out where friendship's a little truer,
That's where tho west begins;
Where thero's laughter in every
Whero there's more of reaping and
less of sowing,
Where throngs of men are coming and
That's where the West begins.
Out where tho world is in Use making,
Whero fewer hearts with despair are
That's where the west begins.
Whero thero's more of singing and
less of sighing,
Whero thero's moro of giving and less
And a man mnkes friends without
That's whero tho West begins.
Christ has given us a measure of
greatness which eliminates conflicts.
When his disciples disputed amongst
themselves as to which should be
greatest in the kingdom of heaven,
He rebuked thorn and said: "Let him
who 'would bo chjefest among you be
tho servant or an." service is me
measure of greatness: it always has
been true, it is truo today, and it al
ways will be ruc that he is greatest
who does the most of good. And yet
what a revolution it will work in this
old world when this stnndaid becomes
tho standard of ovcry lifo. Nearly all
of our controversies and combats a
riso from tho fact that wo aro trying
to get'somcthing from each other. Our
onmities and animosities arise from
our efforts to get as much as possiblo
out of tho world thero will bo peace
when our endeavor Is to put as much
as possiblo into tho world. Society will
havo taken an immeasurable step to
ward peace when it estimates a cit
izen by his output rather than by his
income nnd gives the crown of its ap
proval -to tho one who makes the larg
est contribution to the welfare of all

CARE OP HORSES
See that the colts do not lose flesh
on short' or frost-bitten pastures.
No matter how good a horsa is in
its early life, its usefulness is cut
shrt if it is not properly cared for.
This Is a serious loss.
If you are feeding clover, remember
to cut down tho bulk.

A BEAUTIFUL SENTIMENT
(by John L. Stoddard,' Traveler and
'We must nlace our hopes for the
hnttorment of this world largely upon
the rising generation. It, is chiefly
a njatter of education, enlist tn
avmnnthlns of children in behalf c
animals and half the battle is won and
their future character determined.

may nnko the intellect keen but may
ha ? ro effect whatever upon the nor

wholcrome ethical training wo miss
tho most important asset of both

The longer f live the more it seems
to me that there is but one great vir
tuekindness, and but one vice
cruelty. In the last analysis every
thing reduces itself to these.

IS ADVERTISING EXPENSIVE?
Advertising that is regarded by the
advertiser as expensive is just that.
There is something wrong with it.
Nine times out of ten the copy has the
charley-horsc. It is so weak that it
fhiildn't. movo itself, let alone move
others. Andwhoso fnult is that? Ad
vertisings? Not on your life. Its the
fault of the man who is paying for
tho advertising. Go to his store, and
the chances are that you will find it
slowlv exnirinir with dry rot. The
goods will be dirty and unkept. The
shelves will be dusty and neglected.
Even tho boss will hnve tho grouch
and the grouch never attracts buyers.
Lifo is too short to waste it with the
wooden faces. It isn't tho advertis
ing that's expensive, its the lack of
push thot't behind tho failures.
HELP HUMANE SOCIETY WORK
The Oregon Humane Society, Al-
Mrs. Frank U. Swanton, Secretary
laddress Portland), has compiled a be
autiful booklet on Oregon laws for
the prevention ofcruelty to children
and animals, and with instructions
how to t form local branch societies
It will bo sent free upon application
to the officers building by addressing
Robert Tucker, attorney for tho So
clety, Wilcox building, Portland.
A letter from tho Ellison-White
Chatauqua system has been written
to and received by some of those in
terested in promoting tho movement
at Bandon for the 1916 season. The
letter expresses tho appreciation of the
company for the encouragement re
ceived here, and adds:
"We shall give this our best atten
tion from now on and want to assure
you that we are building a splendid
program for next year. Wo expect
to give you the finest Chatauqua ever
brought West and trust it will bo a
thoro success in Bandon."
Ex-Senator Johnathan, Bourne of
Oregon has bought a 1C00 aero ctton
plantation in Alabama and in writ
ing to a Portland friend of tho trans
action concluded his letter with, the
statement, "So I guess, Alabama is
good enough for me".
A raw boy without a dollar present
or prospective sparking a, girl regular
and talking about marrying is a spec
tacle for god and man. He should bo
reasoned with, and if he will not quit
it until ho is able to support a wife,
and to know whom he loves, and the
difference between love and chicken
pox, he should be quarantined or put
in a convent erected purposely for
such cases. Nine-tenths of the un
happy marriages are tho result of
green human calves being allowed to
run ut large In tho pasture of sosiety
without any yokes on them.

ttmtu There are only a few things that
will start a cheer from, tho average
movie crowd ao for instance the grand
old flag, our peerless and beloved
president and the announcement
of the impending appearance of that
illustrious commedian, Charles Chap
lin. One of the important phases of the
moving picture invention is its abil
ity to preserve and present at any
timo wo caro to bring it up before us
the world as it were before our eyes.
It is therefore a matter of surprise
that the European war bm not cut a
larger figure in the movio programs
of the day. This appears to duo to the
fact that in no instance have the
war pictures have been financially
successful and the profits to bo de
rived is after all tho standard with
this or any other enterprise. Tho pub
lic does not take to war pictures at
present Perhaps when the war is a
matter of past history and not a viv
id reality tho war pictures may be
brought forth and meet with success
ful patronage. But the modern battle
does not render itself adaptable to the
scope of the picture- machine. Only
detached fragments can be secured
and thero is a sameness about them
that makes them secondary in inter
est to the Misadventures of Maria of
the Exploits of Sherlock Slick.
Speaking of war can any one ex
plain the reason why war and hideous
fashions for woman kind should go
together. Tho fashions of Napoleonic
days when tho women of France
shared tho common instinct of that
newly liberated nation and arrayed
themselves in garb that was far less
conventional than beautiful. So at
the timo of tho civil war old fashion
magazine files show how uncouth and
ungainly women contrived to make
themselves with crinolino and large
sieves. Neither of these however have
anything on the styles in which
the women slaves of fashion must
now bedeck themselves. Surely it must
require courage to adopt some of the
patterns which are put" forth for the
choice of maid, or matron.
Again referring to the vrsJ it is
curious that the most rabid parisans
of the contending nations are by no
means those most closely interested.
Many good American citizens have
relatives or intimate friends along the
line of conflict, perhaps in Russia, or
France or at the straits that lead to
the city of Conctantine. Many also
havo friends or 'relatives among tho
heroic dead and these are the people
who seriously ask one another what
it is all aboutj Tho sporting instinct
that cheers on tho victor Is completely
lost sight of in tho presence of death.
Manv a mother's son or orphan's fath
er has been laid away in tho trench
who died for the pride of kings. These
are the seeds sown in tho name of
pomp and glory. Somewhere at some
time the harvest will be reaped.
' Tho threat of the representatives
of the allies to get their loan in other
countries if refused here is a poor
renson for yielding to them. But the
idea is by no means impossible. How
many people, know, that Argentina
is one third as large as the United
States and that its principal city,
Buenos Ayres has one million three
hundred thousand Inhabitants. A rival
John D. Rockefeller's refusal to let
any of his monoy go to help make up
that billion dollar loan may havo due
to his desire to advance the cause of
peace. And then it may have been an
other long-headed stroke of business.
It took only a feather to break the
camel's back and the load of war debt
