Whcn's the Time to
I once did my very best to prevent
a marriage.
It was immediately after the war.
The young man came out of the
army without a job. He owed me
some money, which was incidental.
I would gladly have loaned him
more to get a start In business, but
when he asked for a loan to finance
his marriage, I refused.
"You're crazy to get married
now," I said. "There are enough
difficulties in keeping a marriage
happy without adding worries about
money. You have not yet demon
strated that you can make a success
of one life, yet you propose blithely
to undertake the responsibility of
two. Wait awhile till you. have more
judgment and some savings. Then
you can start right."
Thus I spoke out of my aged wis
dom; and he looked at me pityingly,
and borrowed the money elsewhere,
and was married at once.
Recently I visited his home. He
has three children. He owns his
house. He has a responsible posi
tion and money in the bank. All in
all, it is as happy a family as one
would want to know.
I have also visited in the home of
a successful man of fifty. He did
not rush into matrimony. 'Far from
it. He accumulated money, and,
carefully on his guar!, he looked
over the whola feminine sex for
Thus insured with wealth and
wisdom, he p:occc'Jcd r.t the age of
forty-seven to pick him"olf a foolish
and empty headed li til . girl. Al
ready the marriage shows signs of
strain; it surely cannot last.
Earnest articles are written about
the necessity for making marriage
difficult. Youn people should be
compelled to wait, they say, until
they have funds and experience.
It seems a sound argument, and
yet such restrictions would have
prevented the marriage of Thomas
Lincoln and the birth of Abraham.
They would have kept penniless
Hawthorne from contracting one of
the finest marriages of literary his
tory. They would probably have
postponed, if not prevented, most
of the happiest unions that have
taken place since the beginning of
the world.
So having been a watcher of wed
dings for many years, I find myself
less impressed with the judgment
of maturity and more confident of
the impulses of youth.
For what is mature judgment,
anyway, but the total of our disap
pointments and worries, our buried
fingers and our fears?
Maturity has judgment which is
the wisdom of age, but youth has
instinct which is the wisdom of the
energy through a period many
ycara longer than the average.
Co far this is experimental, but
the experiments have been success
ful, end the time may be close at
hand when old age and helplessness
will no longer be synonymous.
The committee appointed by the
British Government to investigate
the feasibility of a tunnel under the
English channel connecting Eng
land with France, has reported in
favor of the project. It seems to
Americans such and simple and de
sirable engineering job that we won
der why it has not been done long
ago, but there are plenty of "die
hards" In England who fear that
such a tunnel would make it easier
for an enemy to invade the British
Isles. They are deaf to the obvious
answers that all that would be nec
essary to stop a French army would
be to let the water into the tunnel.
The British Channel, from Dover
to Calais Is about twenty miles
across, measured directly north and
south. The shallow waters of the
channel are easily stirred up by
winds and the crossing is one of
the roughest in the world. Under
the water is a bed of solid chalk,
miles deep, through which a tunnel
could easily be bored for electric
trains. It would cost about $j.,,000,
000 the committee estimates, and
take eight years. The French Gov
ernment is friendly to the project.
When done, England would no long
er be in a position where an ene
my's ships could cut off her food
supply, unless that enemy happened
to be France.
It seems more likely now than
ever before that the channel tunnel
will be built in the next few years.
One of the reasons why criminals
are caught more speedily in Eng
land than in America is that Eng
land has a single poliee force for
the entire country and in the United
States we have as many different
police departments as we have
towns, each operating under a dif
ferent system and with no coordin
ation between them except in rare
The commonwealth of Pennsyl
vania has made a start toward re
medying this. A network of tele
phone wires cormcctlng every im
portant town in the state with all
the rest, and with four main cen
ters of operation, operates a typewriter-telegraph
system in every
police headquarters. The moment
a crime is discovered anywhere, all
the facts and possible clues to the
criminal are printed in the office of
every chief of police and the whole
criminal-catching machinery of the
commonwealth is set in motion.
We shall never get our criminal
clement under control until such a
tie-up Is In effect In every state and
throughout the nation. Then we
may have a chance of equalling
England's record for the suppres
sion of crime.
"A woman Is as old as she looks
and a man is as old as ho feels,"
runs an ancient proverb. Many
men of eighty or more are capable
of doing as much work and with
as much enthusiasm as most men
of fortv: many more men are old
and past their usefulness at sixty,
The difference, recent sclnntlllc re
search has discovered, lies In the
secretions of certain glands of the
bodv. When these diminish old age
supervenes. Dr. Harry Benjamin of
New York, working in association
with Dr. Caslmir Funk, discoverer
of vitamins, and Dr. Benjamin Har-
row of the College of the City of
Now York, has found a way of In
troducing the hormones, or essen
tial secretions of these glands, Into
elderly men, with surprising re
sults. The effect Is not to prolong
life, In all probability, but to en
able a man to retain his youthful
One of the greatest enemies 'of
progress b rust. For years the iron
and steel industries have spent hun
dreds of thousands a year in re
search into means of preventing the
rust that destroys bridges, factor
ies, machinery, everything made of
iron. Protecting metals against rust
is an expensive part of all kinds
of construction and manufacturing
So called "stainless" steel is pro
viding one answer. Instead of pro
tecting the surface, certain other
metals are alloyed with the steel
and the metal becomes rustless, ca
pable of taking end keeping a bril
liant polish. Cheaper than nickel
plate, more durable than chromium
plate, one automobile manufacturer
is already turning out cars whose
bright parts arc of stainless steel,
and now other makers are consid
ering entire bodies and chassis of
the same mcttl. If this works out
our roads may become as glittering
as they were whni everybody rode
nickel-plated bicycles.

gruel, made by boiling rice very
soft In plenty of water. This soup
may be varied by having a larger
proportion of onion and allowing
finely minced onion to remain in the
soup. Cooked accrding to the first
direction, it makes a delicate soup
for invalids.
Spanish Rice Prepare boiled rice
being careful to hae kernels dry
and mealy. Have ready a sauce
composed of stewed, canned or
fiesn tomatoes, chopped onions, and
any other savory vegetable fancy.
The basis of the sauce being stewed
tomatoes, it is quite possible to vary
this popular dish by changing the
vegetables added to give flavor. For
example, another addition that com
bines desirably is vegetable oyster,
or okra.

In Its make-up. If you uso the coat

mine properties. It Is lacking In fat
and in proteins. So rice should al

Harry L. Corbett
Republican Candidate for Covernor
"Should Oregon
entrust its gov
ernorship to him
(Corbett) it will
be in mighty
good hands."
Sheridan Sun.
"H e (Corbett)
says that the
state will be ad
vanced more by
hard work than
oratory."-- Crass
Valley Journal.
"The fact that Harry L Corbett was the only senator in
the 1927 legislature who refused to accept the extra pay
which the legislators voted themselves should not work
to his disadvantage in his campaign to procure the repub
lican gubernatorial nomination." Ashland Tidings.
"Searching through all of the utterances made by candi
dates we find in the Corbett platform a gem to consider."
Klamath Falls Herald.
"With Mr. Corbett Covernor there should be no pyramid
ing of bond issues, but there would be ways and means
devised for legitimate, safe development." Malheur
"The sanest platform that has been issued by any candi
date in this generation is the one put forward by Harry L.
Corbett, republican candidate for Covernor. If there is
any 'bushwah' in it we have not been able to locate it and
that is a most unusual thing for a candidate." Corvallis
