Why Is it that somo people seem toH
think that the sole aim and object of a
newspaper man's life is to boom his
fellow men and live upon the ktowl
odge that he is doing good in the
world? An editor's space is his stock
iu trad., it is worth so much and is
generally sold for a very small percent
of its actual value." A hanker makes
a living by the use of his money. How
would it look for any well-to-do busi
ness man to run iuto the bank occas
i nally and ask for a quarter? Curious
feelings would promenade through the
brain of the average man were one of
his wealthy neighbors to come into bis
store and ask fur a sack of flour na a
personal favor. 1'et tlie average news
paper mau takes pleasure in giving his
patrons an occasional puff. It lswhen
he is censured for not blowing up some
man who says that money spent in ad
vertising is money threwn away, that
patience ceases to to be a virtue, and
his habitual raserve and modesty fulls
from him like chaff before the whirl
wind an it Mere.
Mr. Harvey .Scott has retired osten
sibly from the editorship of the Orc
goniaii for the purpose, it is generally
supposed, of becoming a candidate for
the United States Hcnate nest year
against Henator Mitchell. Mr. Bcolt
has fairly "earned" tho promotion. He
hns abandoned tlie principles of a life
time; In has "supported" candidates
from president down to constable,
whom he bad denounced as dishonest,
incompetent and dangerous; ho has
bowed his head and bent his journal
istic course abjectly for a year and a
half now to the dictates of the Simon-
Dolph ring; hns forsaken honest and
independent journalism ond become
the sycophant servant and tool of every
scheme of plunder and corruption; he
has also made a great deal of nis-ncy.
Why snould he not be Hcmitor. Pen

Electricity is not entirely tamed yet.
It is the "sitting Bull" of forces, and
no one is etirc of it when all think it iu

It has taken to cutting capers as a motor
for street cars. Many recent runaways
have occurred on eastern roads where
it has substituted horsee. At Alleghe
ny City, Pa., recently, a car containing
forty passengers on an electric road de
fied all attempts to conlrol it and ran
off at a speed of fifty miles an hour.
The fluid seemed to interfere with the
brakes, which refused to work. When
theendjof the road wasreached.thecar
kept on, ran through a kouse aud began
to dig a bole in the ground, and just
laid there and kicked and snapped like

The strange disappearance of several
young girls between the ages of 17 and
lSi-nthe past two weeks is creating
i f.tite a sensation In Tacotua. No trace
whatever has .been found of any of
thorn, and iu each case they have dis
appeared without taking any clothing
except what they were wearing at the
time. Kidnaping is suspected, as the
girls are handsome aud lntelligent,and
it is thought they were abducted for
purposes of prostitution.

It has got to be an understood tiling that we dort't change
our price, because wo can't go lower and re won't go higher. 1
Wo fix our price just on the inside of cost, allowing ua the
fair profit we need to live, and r& don't budge From that.
Why should wet If we can't make something w waste time
in eelling. But the something wo make k always something
lower than the price rnado elsewhere.
ONE PRICE HAS WON
Us a largo trade. Folks don't like to haggle. It's a relief to
know, at tho word go, just what you have got to pay. ' You
don't go away kicking yourself at tho thought that if you had
hung on a little longer you might have got the goods for a
dollar less. .
One price pleases everybody in the long run and leayi
no doubt in tho buyer's mind about his own shrewdness or
the merchant's honesty. ; -
Us friends, for every custoaner is a friend. Buyers appreci
ate the fact that wo could notmako a fixed, rock-rooted price
unless we made it at figures that would meet any and all
If they make a lower price they lose money, and that
makes it only a question of time when they shut up their
shop and leave the field to us. We are here to stay, and on
tho one price plan to all.

They talk alxmt self-made men as if
there were any other kind. No man
who has ever amounted to a hill of
beans in the affairs of this World was
anything else but self-made. Some
have better chances than others, that's
all, but to be something or somebody
depends upon the man himself. All
the schooling in the world can't make
a mau unless the boy has a high ambl-
tiou to be a man. A teacher cannot
give a boy brains. He must leain to
