WOMAN'S NEW FIELD.
American woman has invaded
the profession of architecture, and
is succeeding in it Her designs
for public buildings, warehouses
and faetori w are eliciting the ap
proval of male veterans in the
art, and her cottages and mansions
do not contain more wardrobe
closets than sre needed by any
well-regulated household. She
can beat a man nine tiroes out of
ten in planning a dwelling that
will be comfortable, beautiful and
home like, because she has a natu
ral talent for that kind of work.
It should be the policy of society
and the state to encourage, aid
nd equip woman for proper bread
winning occupation that fits h-r,
and her "success in architect art
shows that her field of work can
be. still farther widened. The
opportunities for intelligent women
who are compelled to be self-supporting
are not confined to teach
ing, law, medicine, authorship or
stenographyand any bright wo
man of practical mind and ordinary
pluck can find or make a way to
earning a livelihood in almost any
of the professions from which the
sex is now excluded by its own
timidity as much as by the sense
less prejudices of those who do not
appreciate the dignity of labor.
The larger the list of woman's
legitimate occupations the better
for society. Telegram.
We understand that the sheriff of
. this county will in all probabilities
advertise the del nuent tax list
in the near fnture. We think that
this work should be let out to the
lowest bidder, by so doing it would
te a saving of several hundred
dollars to the tax payers of Liun
county. It cost in the neighbor
hood of ladO of the tax payers
money last year to ' have the de
linquent list published and we
venture the assertion that any
paper in the county would have
been ghd to have got it at 1200,
if it had been let out by bids.
Thisisabusine proposition tht
the ExpjtEss hopes the county
cmrt will at least give a considera
tion, there are sbout four papers
in the county that should have a
bid at this work. -
Discouraged with the business
of raising wheit, Oregon farmers
are at a loss to know what to turn
their hands to next. Iowa has
given them an object Won in
thrift that they should not lose
sight of. The total butter produc
tion of thit state for the yeor 1891
was 133,848498. The magnitude
of these figures is amazing. They
represent more wealth than the
whole gold production of the
United States for the sarue-yenr.
which was $33,175,000. Under the
stimulus to her business of this
immense income, there was but a
single bank failure in all Iowa
during the late panic With a
country equally adapted to butter
production, Willamette valley
furmers are in positi-a to walk
abreast of their brothers in Iowa.
There is something more than
mere talk in the rabid discusseon
of the money question that is now
cn in the state press. The discus
sion means that the senatorial
mule must soon have another rider.
All spurred and booted, 6enator
Dolph waits and frets for the word
to crawl on, while his gold mono
metalicts friends yell "sound mon
ey' and hang to the tail of the
mule. To the ears of his muleship
the silver republicans hang,whik
Fulton, Tongue? and others sweat
blood and banker for an order to
climb on. This is why the money
question waxes warm. It will
contiuue until the legislature meat.

are others guiltier thau he, and that
he will not hang alone. Said he;
"There are more men implicated in
this crime than have yet been in

help me, but failed at the last mo
