THE FOOLISHNESS OF SOME PEOPLE
There is living today in Belgium one of the
irreatcst writers of all times. Maurice Maeter
linck is his name. The reason we mention him
is that the little hook which he wrote some
time ago, "The Life of the Bee," would be in
teresting and profitable reading for some of
our friends. f you have read it, 'twill do no
harm to read it again. The peculiarity about
this book is that you read things into it, quite
as much as you read things out of it. The
more one reads, sees and travels, the more he
finds out that the so-called gifted men are but
expressing his own thoughts. Reading, at the
least, is only self-discovery. Maeterlinck says
that alone a bee has no intelligence, but that a
hive of bees has great and wonderful intelli
gence. A man alone, like a bee, has no intelli
gence. All of our activities have other people
in mind, the more we can fuse ourselves with
humanity and work with humanity, forgetting
l ". Mie greater will be our regard.
n 'i H'gcnt community today knows that
.i i.. to .succeed, certain prejudices, hates and
lines of cleavage must be broken clown and dis
carded. In the forward looking communities
v irking together for a common good
... .! a common purpose, understanding, seem
ingly, that they are a part and particle of one
another, and that they can succeed only as they
help other people.
Now it so happens that the Government,
disimus of showing the wonderful advantages
:r h the I' arcel Post brings to the country
n I the citizen of the small town,
g..,nts permission to the Postmaster to make
educational displays at Fairs and other gath
erings of the people which will result in good.
As is well known, one of the main objections of
the Parcel Post before it was adopted was
that it would injure the small towns, drive peo
I !( to the cities, making farming undesirable
and result m general disaster. We have a lurk

that such an order was issued.

Post in carrying the products of Sears and
Roebuck and Montgomery Ward & Co. There
on display were packages of different sizes and
weights with the price of carriage from Sears
and Roebuck's nearest distributing point. The
entire affair looked like the Catalog Clique had
been putting in time and a-third. Of course we
were not surprised when the citizens and busi
ness men promptly objected and the display
was assigned to the scrap-heap.
The government exists for all people and
when we select a man to act in our capacity
in any community, we expect him to work faith
fully and well, to expect anything less would be
folly. The Post Office department belongs to
the people and exists because they support it,
standby it and patronize it. To the degree that
we expect a man to work for the interest of the
people to whom he hands out the daily mail, do
we believe that the post-office belongs to us.
Every postmaster takes an oath that he will do
his work to the best of his ability arid when
he does not, the bonding companies burn the
midnight oil to explain matters. But the big
thing of the whole matter is that as communi
ties we face the struggle for existence just the
same as the individual and eternal vigelence is
the price or more things than liberty. We can
ill afford to trifle with those who are completely
and continually out of tune with the spirit of
the community, the spirit of co-operation,
mutual helpfulness and do-it-together. To ob
serve these tendencies requires but feeble per
ception and to be unaware of them tokens the
lagard and inefficient. Such is the scheme of
life and to those who can not adjust them
selves, the way is rocky, uncertain dark and

CAUSE OF THE PRESENT WAR
BREWERS PUT UP FUNDS
At the Literary Program of the
Heppner High School, held in the
auditorium last Friday afternoon, Mr.
Harley Adkins delivered a paper on
"Who is Responsible For the Present
European War." Mr. Adkins had pre
pared a very interesting paper on this
subject and we reprint it in full be
low, feeling that many of our read
ers will be greatly interested.
"Negotiations between Austria,
Germany, Russia, France and Eng
land were carried on by letters, tele
grams and conversations for a period
of fifteen days preceeding the war.
Both England and Russia have pub
lished some of this official correspon
dence in what is called their "white
book." Here follows some of the im
portant facts given by the Germans:
KNOWING THAT OREGON
DRY MEANS BETTER BUSI

BY ORTON E. GOODWIN,
Publicity Department, Committee of One
The first edition of the Echo Enterprise came
to our table last Friday evening. Mr. Wm. R.
Fletcher, who is associated with Harlan & Har
lan in the publication of this new paper, has
charge of the editorial department and his first
edition proves that he is a high class man in
that line. Success for the new paper is assured.
England needs all her fighting men.
dukes and lords take notice.
On June 28, last the Archduke
Francis Ferdinand, heir to the throne
of Austria-Hungary, and his wife
were assisinated at Sarjevo, the capi
tal of Bosnia, by two Bosniacks
Slavs, but subjects of Austria.
Austria regarded this as the fruit of
Servian agitation against Austria
Hungary and began an investigation
without indicating this fact to Servia.
Soon after this Sir Edward Grey, the
English Minister for Foreign Affairs
wrote the English Ambassador at
Berlin, expressing fear lest war should
grow out of this incident. Four days
later Austria presented an official pap
er to the Servian Government saying''
that the Assasination at Serjevo w;f J
planned in Belgrade, the Servian capN
tal; that it was the culmination of a
series of Servian agitations against
Austria-Hungary, and - t"he Austrian
Government demanded that Servia
