CASTLES IN SPAIN
I have been reading the story of
His life was full of adventure: It
makes excellent reading.
But the passage that interested
me most was this:
Riding to the Matoppos one day
at the usual four miles an hour,
Rhodes had not said a word for
two hours, when he suddenly re
marked: "Well, le Sueur, there is
one thing I hope for you, and that
is that while still a young man you
may never have everything you
"Take myself, for instance: I am
not an old man, and yet there is
nothing I want. I have been Prime
Minister of the Cape, there is De
Beers (the diamond mines that
Rhodes controlled) and the rail
ways, and there Is a big country
called after me, and I have more
money than I can spend.
"You might ask, 'Wouldn't you
like to be Prime Minister again?'
Well, I answer you fairly I should
take It if it were offered to me, but
I certainly don't crave for it"
At twenty-five he was so rich that
ho did not want for any of the
things that money can buy; at thirty-five
he did not want anything at
all; at forty-nine he died.
I hope I may never be guilty of
writing anything intended to make
poor people contented with their
I would rather be known as one
who sought to Inspire his readers
with a divine discontent
To make men and women discon
tented with bad health, and to show
them how, by hard work, they can
have better health.
To make them discontented with
their intelligence, and to stimulate
them to continued study.
To urge them on to better jobs,
better homes, more money in the
bank. But it does no harm, in our
striving after these worthwhile
things, to pause once in a while
and count our blessings.
Prominent among my blessings I
count the Joys of anticipation the
delights of erecting Castles in Spain.
If you would discover the really
happy men of history, look for
those who have striven forward
from one achievement to another,
drawn by the power of their own
They have made every day yield
a double pleasure the joy of the
present, and the different but no
less satisfying joys provided by a
I believe In day-dreams. I am
strong for CaBtles in Spain. I have
a whole group of them myself, and
am constantly building improve
ments and making alterations.
I do not let my work upon them
interfere with my regular Job. Ra
ther, it reinforces the job. My cas
tles are incentive to efficiency: they
give added reason and purpose to
the business of being alive.
Broadcasts From KOAC
A new series of lectures by Dr. J.
B. Horner, author of several books
on Oregon history and professor of
history at Oregon State college, has
been added to KOAC'S afternoon
program schedule. Dr. Horner will
give his subjects each Wednesday
at 3:00 o'clock. "Heroines of the
Oregon Country" is the title of his

GOOD AND BAD
It is a beautiful thought that, ev
erything In, on, or about this old
earth we live in, Is good for us in
one way or another. It is one of the
most comforting facts imaginable,
when we appreciate it fully.
A certain article of food or drink
may be decidedly harmful under
conditions and positively beneficial
under others. If a man is in good
health, he does not need aconite,
strychnine, or mercury; but, when
the fever must be controlled, the
shattered nerves restored, the body
freed from infection then we ap
preciate these valuable agencies at
their true worth. We would not be
safe without them.
Everything we see, feel and ap
preciate, is good for something
some time, place, or for somebody
This is a thought worth keeping in
mind constantly. Tho family doc
tor is a trained thinker. He of all
people is besieged daily with anx
ious queries about human systems
that have been thrown out of gear,
presumably by something not good
for them when, in reality, there Is
Vocational Experts to
Assist Prep Students
Dr. Alfred Atkinson, president of
Montana State college, and Miss
Helen M. Bennett, head of a college
graduate placement bureau for wo
men In Chicago, have been an
nounced as the specialists on voca
tional guidance to be brought to
Oregon State college for the seventh
annual Educational exposition Feb
ruary 14 and 15.
Students from practically every
high school in the state will attend
the exposition again this year where
they will have opportunity to obtain
personal information on the various
vocational careers both from de
partmental exhibits, regular mem
bers of the college staff and from
the visiting specialists.
Placing of high school annuals in
the 1929 Sigma Delta Chi clinic con
test will be announced to annual
staff members who attend the expo
sition, for whom a special confer
ence is scheduled.
MANY SCHOOLS CLOSED.
The schools at Boardman, Irrigon,
Pine City and in a number of other
districts in Morrow county are clos
ed because of the cold weather.
Deep snow handicapped transporta
tion in a number of the districts.
In some cases the school heating
plants were not capable of heating
the buildings to a comfortable tem
perature, according to Lucy E.
Rodgers, county school superintendent.

the football championship of the
Upper Columbia Athletic league,

The doctor knows that it is not
the article, but the excessive indul
gence of it that docs the wrecking.
He knows that, used to the exact
point of need, nothing makes one
sick. He knows, as every thinking
man knows, that nothing a man
may eat, drink, or smoke, can pos
sibly do harm, if not indulged to
excess; I wish you wbuld under
score that, please. Potatoes are as
capable of killing a man as coffee,
and have killed as many I have no
doubt, if the truth were known. .A
very eminent specialist told me re
cently, that to eat three baked pota
toes "the size of a goose egg" daily,
would harm as certainly as the
smoking of three cigars. It is the
excess, and not tho particular thing
that makes partaking deadly.
The wisest man, In my opinion, is
the one that knows precisely where
to draw the line in eating, drinking,
and smoking. I have not met him
up to this time. When I find him,
I shall congratulate a perfectly
healthy man. I am more afraid of
excess than I am of the orthodox
devil; that's not science it's truth.
