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 soul. Certain people work for me and 1 pay them wages but tho maid who sweeps my room is no more my ser vant than I am hers. Because I givo her money and she gives me work does not make me her superior. It is the ancient delusion of tho centuries that labor in some way lowers n man. The real fact is that it ennobles him. For instanca Mr. Wilson is consider ed by tho American people, and I am suro ho considers himself, as their ser vant. Ho has no mortgages on his 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 like what ho does we criticise him. Thero are certain partisans that yelp at him every turn he makes, like' n pack of yapping pups. Wo do not sup press them. It is the constitutional "privilege of vulgar people to acold their servants. 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 ing. They aro being served. When you lose sight of the duty of serving you invito at onco spiritual microbes of the most destructive char acter to como and breed in you. Thero is a luxury i nbcihg waited on. Hut that feeling induces pride, meanness, selfishness, the' undisciplin ed will, tho unruled passions, and tho wholo rakehelly crow of traits that that cause excess, perversion, indolen ce, selfishness, boredness nnd pessi mism. ' Thero is a luxury in being waited is a real pleasure when it becomes a The people of Bandon seem to be the only people in Coos county who favor the bond issue for trunk roads. Tho reason apparently lies in the pro vision of the petition that clips off $70,000 to be spent from Bandon south 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 issue, if it ever comes up for a vote which is hardly probably for various reasons. Chief among these are, that the amount of the proposed bond issue $370,000 is too small and it is not stretches of trunk lino auto boulevards we want, but rather good roads from the :x cli to the market and these it is s ed can best be secured by a dili 'c i co-operation with the Coun ty Court nnd the various district sup ervisors in a judicious expenditure of tho general and special road taxes Myrtle Point Enterprise Summations The idea that the lumber market is showing a stronger pulse and an en livened respiration seems to be gain ing ground in Frisco and is reflected by the stories of the boat crews that come up from that city.

When Kenneth Jordan, nn 8-ycar-old prisoner in the for the lead, On Friday of this week the post season series of the National and American leagues for the baseball championship of the world will begin. The battle this year will be between the Boston Red Sox and the Philadelphia Nationals. Philadel phia has been a member of the Na tional league since it was instituted thirty years ago. The National League is the oldest of' the base ball orgaif izations, the pioneer to institute the plan of a schedule of games between city representatives. In nil that time Philadelphia has boon a contender county jail, secured the keys from the sheriff nnd opened tho doors telling the prisoners they-could escape, only one of the twelve took ndvantnge of the offer.

Its younger rival in the American league' has won the flatf on several occasions, But wo be lieve the Phillies havo never had the honor. They have had champions on their batting list. Before tho days of Wag ner and Cobb, Hamilton of the Phil lies was known as the champion base stealer nnd his batting average was highest of them all. Delchanty, yet holds the record for the numbar of home runs pounded out in a single game. 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 ting position. 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 McGraw havo been good players in their day. There is joy in watching an ordi nary ball game but to soo a genuine interleague championship game our idea of the superlative of desi deratum.

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.

Thoy lire people with weak hearts or weak blood vessels. In their case excitement may be, nnd often is, absolutely fatal. If they wish to make suro of escap ing a sudden and untimely death, they must learn to control their emotions. Thoy must learn to control them so completely that thoy will remain calm and self-possesssd no matter what oc curs to excite them. This applies to emotions of a pleasurable na well as si painful sort. Ordinary pleasurable emotions Iiave a stimulating invigorating effect on the bodily organism. But if the heart or blood vessels aro weak, great hapincss can kill as surely ns grout grief, anger,- fear or other poignant ly distressing emotion. I know of ono case in which a wo man 43 years old, fell dead at the re turn home o. her daughter, whom she had supposed killed in a railway acci dent.

Mosso adds specifically: "It was proved by my balance thai at the slightest emotion, tho blooc rushes to tho head."
