TO OUR READERS
We wish our readers a Merry
Christmas.' tfiia day', above all
he days qf fee year, should be
given to good cheer, We should
recollect that nearly two thous
and years ego, the Christ' of a
civilized world' wps born. No
nan in all history has been hon
ored as Be has been honored,'
and no teacher's precepts have
been so well kept and so well
spread throughout the different
races of the earth. There has
been no factor in all the world's
history, that has so Influenced
the onward march of civilization.
' If we were to live up to the
teachings of Christ, there would
not be the peed ' o ' half the
aws on our statute books that
we have. His teachings are ab
solutely right and just.
' If you have a gronch, forget
about it for the day. If you are
harboring ill-will towards your
neighbor, fprpef it. ' t you can
make a child Happy, do so. If you
can bring a little cheer into a sad
home, go about t at once,. Forget
self and, think, qf others, and see
if in making others smile, you
don't smile yourself.
WHAT OF THE
At the present time the tax
payers are still in the dark as to
how much of the $26,000 will be
gpept between Beaverton and
Hillsi(Qr. except that there is
practically about three miles of
unmacadamized road between the
two points. We have it from the
Judge that the balance of the
road iund, after closing up this
gap, goes to the other end of the
This sort of arrangement will
never be satisfactory to the tax
payers in this end of Washington
county, or to any fair-minded
citizen familiar with the argu
ments, which have been present
ed to the public through the col
umns of the Times. The tax
payers will stand agast at the
indiscriminate use of public mon
ey to build up one community at
the .expense of another when
that money could be su placed as
to Berve at least one hundred
times more people.
During a visit in Portland Mrs.
A. Howie, dairy expert, who has
been in charge of the Wisconsia
exhibit at the Panama Exposi
tion, delivered herself of a few
, of the latest fads for making the
touch overworked bossy come
through with, still more returns.
She believes that cows surely re
spond to human treatment, such
us lace curtains hung upon the
windows to diffuse the light.
Now if our Dairy Commission
would only see it that way, too,
.so we could have a Btate law,
making it compulsory for each
dairyman to hang lace curtains
in the barn how happy bossy
would be. Then when the house
wife had finished her daily toil of
washine the dairy dishes and
felt in need of a pleasant place
to sit and maditate she could go
to the barn, and there enjoy the
blessings of modern dairying
methods. In time, nodoubt,when
. o'l there is to learn
about dairying and install the

very hard for him. During the balance
