"CHARGE, CHESTER,. CHARGE!
Readers of Scott's poems will re
member the dying words of Marmion
on Flodtlen's fatal field. Since that
mcmoraole day the words "Charge it"
have been the cause of the death, finan
cially "speaking, of millions of good
men and true. Farmers, mechanics,
merchants, laborers, men and women
In every avoention of life have suffered
from the effect of those baneful words,
Look around among your own ac
quaintances in this rich and fruitful
Willamette valley and count how
many men who onee owned many
broad and fertile acres and who are
now working as hired hands on the
lands once owned by them and lost
through the words "Charge it." Scan
tlwt records of your country and note
the mortgages, the "death grips" held
by those sharks, the foreigu money
lenders, and by those no Ice rajuicious
gentlemen, our local capitalists, over
the homes of the people. Ask why
these things are so and you will be told
those people were too fond of going in
debt to the merchants. "Charge It"
accounts for nine-tenths of the mort
gages recorded In your county.
That merchant was doing a seem
ingly prosperous business! Albany,
Bcio, Lebanon, Ilalsey, llarrisburg or
elsewhere, yet he had to make an as
signment. His bills become due, his
creditors are inexorable; they must
have their money ; they will not wait.
The merchant, complying with the
request, many, many times repeated, to
"Charge it," has thoussvnds upon thou
tmnds on his books, which cannot be
immediately collected. Ruin stares
him in the face, and there is no other
honorable way left for him, if he can
not find some friend to step in w ith
money to his aid, than to turn over
everything he is possessed of often
many times the amount of the claims
Against him to those creditors for
them to make their money out of if
they can. "Charge it" has been fatal
to his success in business. It has been
fatal to the mechanic, the day laborer,
the professional man. the editor; in 1
fact, who has escaped unscathed from j
those portentous word?
Why not turn over a new leaf? Why
not make the words "Charge it" obso-
lete, in fact make them as dead as Mar
mion is now. Our crops are abundant.
You may be in debt. Now is the time
to get out; do so as early as you can.
Confine your wants in the future to
your means of paying on the spot. If
yott own but one square rod of ground,
let it lie your own. When vou want
to buy anything on credit, don't buy it; nor in a captious spirit, but simply be
wait until you have the means of pay- j cause the morals of society, the welfare
ing ior wnat you want. When you
feel sorely tempted to sell anything on
credit, don't sell it; wait until the
other fellow has the means of paying
for what he wants. Credit is a snare
and delusion; eash down is what goes
now; be up with the procession. Let
"Spot cash" be your motto, w hether
you buy or sell. Then you w ill have
no worry, no dread of creditors, no !
grieving- over bad debtors; w hen an !
impecunious cuss lights out you can j
irt bini go cheerfully he won't owe f
you anything; verily, in all the busi
ness phases of life, the peace that pass
eth all understanding w ill be yours.

"Peace on Earth and Good
THE JOT OF IN COMPLETENESS.
If all onr lives were one broad glare
Of sunlight, clear, unclouded;
If all our path were smooth and fair.
By no soft (tloom enshrouded;
If all Ufo's flowers were fully blown
Without the sweet unfolding,
And happiness were rudely thrown
On hands too weak for holding
Should we not miss the twilight hours.
The gentlu haae and sadness?
Should we not long for 8orras and showers,
To break the constant gladness?
If none were sick, and none were sad.
What service cotild we render?
I think If we w ere always glad.
We scarcely could be tender:
Did our beloved never need
Our patient ministration,
Earth would grow cold, and mi, indeed,
Its sweetest consolation:
If sorrow never claimed our heart.
And every wish were granted.
Patience would die, and hope depart
life would be disenchanted.
And yet In heaven Is no more night.
In hen ven Is no more sorrow!
Such unimapined new delight ,
Fresh grace from pain will borrow.
As the poor seed that under ground
Peeks its true life above it.
Not knowing what will there be found
When sunbeams kiss and love it.
So we in darkness upward grow.
And look and long for heaven,
But cannot picture it below
Till more of light Be given.
OBEDIESCK TO LAW.
Gen. Grant once said in one of his
messages to Congress: "The best way
to repeal or cause to be repealed an
odious or bjeetionable law is to rigidly
enforce it." Every moral and law
abiding citizen is honorably bound to
obey the law and encourage others to
do the same as long as it is on the stat
ute books, and when the law is neither
wholesome nor for the good -of society
then the people should rise in their
sovereign majesty and demand its re
peal. It will net do to say that be
cause the law d(M?s not suit me there
fore I will not obey it; for on this
j ground not a single law could been-
forced, for there is not a single law on
the statute books of Oregon but what
some one is opposed to it, however
much it may be to the interest of so- j
ciety to enforce it. Communism and
anarchy in its most malignant and
violent form is simply opposition to
objectionable law. No true citizen M ill
maintain his dignity as a man, nor!
ean he subserve the "welfare of society
1 by living in open violation of law, or
(in encouraging or abetting others to
I do so.
Oregon has a Sunday law, and its
open violation is a shame to any law
abiding community. If this law is
against the welfare, peace and happi.
ness of our people, then let us demand
its repeal by rigidly enforcing its re
quirements. This is not written by way of threat
of the community, and the honor and
dignity of law should be reseeted,
and if men will not honor the Htate
nor obey the statutes of the land, then
let the law, under the arm of its power,
arise and vindicate itself.
In "Hill's Annotated Laws of Ore
gon," page 957, section lS90varticle 66S,
will be found the Sunday law of Ore-
gon, and there is just as much power !
to enforce this law as that of any other
criminal law of the State. Following
is the law
If any person siiall loep open ary ffre, thrp.
