Silence indicates both courtesy and;
consideration. It gives the other fel
low his turn. It pays him the com
pliment that his brain may aUo har
bor tomi worthwhile ideas. Every
ideal relation savors of reciprocity.
Every aoul must have a medium and
opportunity for self-expression. The
one-sided conversation is always ar
rogant. Grant the other fellow a
chance to say his say.
Silence indicates control. We often
read: He mastered himself and was
silnt." The trivial gabb'.e! When
the mind is in control the machine
is geared up tight. The wagging ton-!
gue always means loose tension. It
is the loose gear that rattles. All na- i
ture pays homage to self-control.
Silence is the great healing power
of solitude. In the face of a great
crisis we are silent. In a great emo
tion we are still. Silence can be elo
quent. It is always majestic.
"Silence is the lesson of kings,''
said Jean du Beauvais at the funeral
of Louis XV. And Carlyle has called
silence the element of great things
that fashion themselves together to
Silence is more unimpeachable than
speech because it cannot be attacked.
Great thoughts are born in silence.
It is the mother of truth. It is the ser
vant of reason. It is the best help
to him m-ho mistrusts himself. ""Let
us be: silent," says Emerson, "that we
may hear the whisper of the gods.
Noise and tumult are the signs of
war. Silence is the insignia of peace.
It is quite as much a mark of strength
to know how to hold your tongue as to
know how to wisely use it.

ANOTHER FARM CANDIDATE.
PEOF.GE MANSFIELD, wealthy Med-
AJ ford rancher, retiring president of
alleviating agricultural ills.
Walter M. Pierce, who has been
weeping with farmers for decades,
and most of the time in public office
of some kind, is now governor, at
$7,500 a year, with traveling expenses
and the family on the payroll. C. E.
pence, wno for many years has
farmed the farmers, is state market
master at $4,000 a year. Many other
farmer friends are also saving the
rancher by getting on the public pay
roll o why not one who has made a
science of it. like Mansfield?
Mr. Mansfield is a man of force and
action, a vigorous speaker, an inde
fatigable campaigner, a good hand
shaker, a lawyer by training, a cattle-rai.-er
by choice, and will be a for
midable candidate. He talks progres
siveism and will probably make the
same kind of a senator that Brook
hart of Iowa is. Salem Capital Jour-

NO ALIMONY, NO DIVORCE.
NO ONE questions the alarming in
crease of divorces. It has been
frequently said that the reform
should be not in the divorce court but
in the marriage license. Every appli
cant for marriage license should be
required to present from an unim
peachable, orthodox physician a cer
tificate of perfect health, perfect san
ity, and as far as it is possible for the
physician to go, a certificate of good
Every young married couple should
have a home of their own, be it ever
so humble. Married life should ne'er
be begun in a flat, hotel or an apart
ment house. If they can't have but a
small one-room home they should be
gin housekeeping in that, over whose
door they would twine their own
morning-glories. These conditions
would prevent many divorces.
Another very significant fact must
be taken into consideration namely,
the alimony is often an incentive.
driving people to the divorce court.
If you will eliminate the alimony you
will reduce the number of divorces by
fifty per cent at least.
Alimony should never be paid ex
cept to the innocent mother who has
children to rear. The guilty husband
should be made to educate, clothe,
support and furnish sufficient funds
for the rearing of his children. Their
mother should be given a competency
while she is performing that task.
If there are no children, and if the
woman is well and strong, she should
not be granted alimony.
No attorney fee should be allowed,
no court cost should be paid, no in
ducement should be offered to make
divorce litigation easy and desirable.
Another thing that might eliminate
many divorces would be to restore the
whipping post. And whenever a man
mistreats his wife and children sub
ject him to physical punishment, put
him on bread and water, and require
him to work incessantly for their
comfort and happiness.
Let the slogan be, "No Alimony."
