bells of Heppner
irp n t undfty morn in p tney
nhould have in especial appeal to
everyone, fr nrxt Sunday is Mother's
Dhv. Each year the second Sunday
in May if- set aside for remembrance
of Mft kt, the one person whom all,
hel l er of p!ebian or ptrician des
cent, honor, love ard respect.
Mother the very our.d of the word
breathe WicredncsR. And truly noth
ing is more sacred, or nearer to the
Creator than is the institution of
motherhood. It is the working of
God's plan for the continuation of
the human rwce. And as God has
wrapped up all that is sacred in the
name of Mother, no has he designed
that it be kept holy.
Then as the bells chime forth on
Sunday morning's breeze, who is
there in the city of Heppner whose
thoughts will not turn to mother?
And if free to do so. who is there who
will not answer the appeal of those
chimes by going to the house of God,
the place designed by God for perpet
uating the sanctity of motherhood?
Let's all go to church next Sunday.

there are few farms in this county
that will not support more cows than
are now being cared for. And the
monthly cream check from the addi

UNDERMINING MAN'S RESPON
SIBILITY. GOVERNOR CHARLES W. BRYAN,
of Nebraska, attracted national
attention when in his inaugural ad
dress he said: "During the past few
years and especially during the late
war period there has been a univer
sal tendency towards an excess of
government. This is resulting in the
enactment of public laws for the cure
of private and personal ills that are
burdening the state government with
functions and obligations which will
destroy the effectiveness of govern
mental activities and also of individ
If this condition be true of the
states, and there can be no doubt it
is true, what shall be said of such an
evil when its operations are extend
ed to the national congress. Perhaps
the evil is most forcibly brought to
public attention in considering the
question of appropriations so fla
grantly made in defiance of the fun
damental and just principle that one
Ciass or group shall become the pri
vate beneficiary of appropriations
made at the expense of the taxpayers.
But more than this, the radical ten
dencies daily becoming more evi
dent in government circles, disclosed
as a fact by the members of both
great parties, are persistently press
ing the opportunist to foist on the
nation laws and governmental re
strictions that are utterly destructive
of business expansion, but which
provide an opportunity for a little
flag waving, that finds its reward in
the applause of the unthinking. If
we don't look out we will soon be
"governmented to death."

OW about your home, Mr. Husband
and Mrs, Wife? The a ve rage
husband is a coward and the average
wife a bully. Are you?
Many have either yielded to the
spirit of the day and have permitted
their wives to dominate the domestic
circles to its disgrace, or they have
practically abandoned their homes.
Consequently, they occupy one sec
tion of the city, namely, the business
and club sections, the saloon or the
pool hall, while the wives take a sim
ilar direction in another part of the
city: the home stands between these
two factors in a neglected condition.
Women have been thrown out into
the world and seem to care more for
the activities, excitements, gaities
and outside glares, than they do for
the domestic drudgery, seclusion, re
sponsibilities and glories of home.
Women ought to be forced to go
home. But their husbands are too
cowardly to force them, or they are
too indifferent to their responsibil
ity, or they would rather glide or
travel the road of least resistance,
and let the home drift.
The home is drifting; children are
roaming; wives are gadding. Their
husbands are practicing fraud and
dishonesty on their families. They
The time has come to re-establish
the home with the sovereignty of the
federal head, the sacredness of do
mestic seclusion, and the proper ad
justment of domestic duties.
The dark spot in the present civil
ization is the neglected home. Cow
ardly husbands are responsible for
every phase of domestic decline.

selves, re-establish their homes and
build again the domestic the na
