THE. UNIVERSAL BLUNDER
IJy Dr. Frank 'Crane
"Tho universal blunder in this world
f " said Phillips Brooks, "is in thinking
'' that tiiero are certain persons put in
to the wprld to govern and certain
others to obey.
"Everybody is in this world to gov
ern and everybody to obey. There arc
no benefactors and bcncficUirips in 1
distinct classes. Every man is at oncc
benefactor nnd beneficiary. 1 Every t
good deed you do you ought to thank
your fellow man for giving, you an
opportunity and they ought to bte
thankful to you for doing it."
That is a mighty good sentiment to
set down on your tablets. It may gain
you a great dual of happiness if you
will believe it. It may even save your

It is the ancient delusion of tho
centuries that labor in some way

it ennobles him.
For instanca Mr. Wilson is consider

suro ho considers himself, as their ser

job. He holds it by no divine right.
Ho cannot pass it on to a successor of
his own blood or choice. If we don't

Thero are certain partisans that yelp

And yet ho is tho chief man of tho
greatest nation in the world. In for
mer days he would have shouted.
"Off with his head!" whon any one
crossed him, and would have worn a
crown, also a robe with a tail ten feet
long. It is spirit of service that mak
es him tho decent, conscientious, hard
working man he is.
Tho curse of wealth is thnt it'do
stroys this spirit of service. The man
who does nothing because he has en
ough to live on comfortably is no bet
ter than the man who does nothing
because he can beg or smoke his pipe
on the bench of tho poorhouse door.
Both are leeches. They are not serv

serving you invito at onco spiritual

The people of Bandon seem to be

Tho reason apparently lies in the pro
vision of the petition that clips off

while the remainder is to be spent
"where the cpunty court may direct."
In the Myrtle Point Section there are
few who will vote in fnvor of the bond

which is hardly probably for various
reasons. Chief among these are, that

It has rarely been in the last di-J

The managers of tho Phjjjes have
never been stingy with tho team.
They havo spared no expense to
maintain a high average in the qual
ity of members of the team. But
they never seemed to bo able to find
a manager with the requisite pep and
ginger to put over a winner.
Odd that it should have taken lum
bering Pat Moran to turn the trick.
Moran, like J. Evcrs was a cog in
the old Cub .machine, a catcher in
which his talents were far outshown
by his brilliant associate, Johnic
Kling and later by Archer the mnn
who throws bases with a snap of his
wrist without rising from his squat
But the slow going Pat hns at last
brought a winner to Philadelphia and
now his past record is being examin
ed for indications of greatness.
There appears to be qualities in a
manager that aro different from those
that go to make up a brilliant ball
player. Sometimes the two kinds of
qualities arc combined and frequently
thoy are entirely separate. Seleo who
was one of the best judges of ball
player talent that ever lived, was no
himself a player.
Others like Comisky, Hanlon and

An Early Sajj ifoijntii uf $tort rfurit
(In Memory of Whiskers, Cutllp and Port Orrord Jakey)
By FRANK B. TICHENOR
Away off West in Port Orford, where red men watched tho tides
Till he's gathered to the adiposo that lined the natives sides,
There lived a little red boy with neither kith nor kin,
Whose only wealth were trousers that were tattooed on his skin.
No multiplication table had ever muddled up his head,
Incited him to hookey or made him toss in bed;
No grim and gruesome fables of a frightful bogie man
E'er scared that little Indian, as only bogies can.
No Children's Aid Society investigated him
Nor rule of any Orphanage deprived him of n swim
No farmer's wife or restaurant cook provided him with food,
No pious missionary scared him into being good.
He played tree-tag with woodrats, pulled tho tails of wild hogs,
Made faces at wild-cats, and skinned the water dogs.
He stirred up every nut-lull and prodded hornets nests with poles,
Pursued the little rabbit and stopped up skunk holes'.
lie gorged himself on mussels, clams cooked upon hot stones,
With now and thon 11 chance to gnaw some well-picked sailor's bones;
Sometimes he caught a crab or fish, or gull's nest would rob
It mattered not, nochoice had he, 'twist fresh Inid eggs and squab.
But still his heart was guileless, and tho little soul within
Had never thought of evil, nor had ever dreamed of sin;
And, Oh, for some good shepherd who could fold this straying lamb,
That bad never known n master, nor bad ever' heard a damn.
One day a white'man landed from a great big black canoe,
And prepared a little dwelling, while the chief prepared for stow,
But he gave, the chief a gimlet, and the squaw a cake of yeast,
And in hopes of future riches they postponed the promised feast.
He told them funny stories of a man who ate a whale,
Of boats as big as Islands that would go without a sail,
Of a man who walked on water without paddles on his feet,
And restored a man to freshness who'd been dead too long to oat.
That little red kid left his chipmunks and forgot his laws,
To hear about a good old man whose name was Santa Claus,
Who always knew when boys were good and came round once a year
To give to each deserving ono a bow and many spears.
They called his visit Christmas, and they had good things to ent,
They hung up little stockings (which were quivers from their feet),
And went to bed and waited for the tantalizing toys,
That Santa Claus was sure to leave for all who'd boon good boys.
Although his soul was spotless and his little heart was pure,
When asked if he was nlwnyp good, he couldn't say for sure,
Then the missionary told him that though a little boy behuved,
He couldn't hope for righteousness until he had been saved.
For days that Indian kid worked it over in his head;
For nights and nights ho dreamed again of all that man had said,
He brandished fancied weapons, shouted murderous commands,
Or drew pictures of a stocking with his big too in the sand.
The ant-hills were neglected and thojiornets unperturbed,
The rats lost in wonder and tho water dogs undisturbed,
For hours he sat and listened to the missjonnry's talk,
But he yearned not for salvation; what ho wanted was a sock.
But dreaming made no arrows. his wishing brought 110 spear,
His fancies killed no wood-rats. Ids sighing slew no deer.
His little heart grow heavy and he e'en forgot to eat,
But sat all day witli yearning gazo upon 'the white man's feet.
One day the good man told him that Santa Claus was due,.
And would surely drop around that way within a night or two,
Oh, all the human troubles that escaped Pandora's box,
Arc absolutely nothing to a Christmas without socks.
His little heart beat wildy, a tear strayed down his cheek,
He tried to murmur thankfulness but not a word could speak,
His sorrows poured upon him like a wild tumultous sea,
For Santa Claus was coming now anil not a sock had he.
Then sciztig up a shin-bone that wns loaded full of rocks,
He smashed the missionary's skull and searched his feet for socks,
Oh, blasted hopes! Oh, vain regrets! Alas, ambitious plans!
As sockless as the red kid, was that missionary man.
Away down in Mussel cove, underneath a pile of rocks,
Rests the wishbone of tho prencher who was murdered for his socks,
And nn old' gray headed heathen spirit sits there dreaming yet, '
Of the bows and arrows, and the socks he didn't get.
