erty. Congress early saw tbe danger,
and, to avoid it, the first amendment
to the constitution declares that "Con
gress hIiiiII make no htw respecting the
establishment of any religion or pro
hibiting the free exercise thereof." This
evidently was the purpose of the divine
Savior. Religion, then, is not legis
lated into men. Man of intelligence
before whom is brought by inspiration
life and death la expected to decide be
tween the two, not by compulsion but
by the five exercise of Ids own will.
This way, and only this way, c in man,
Christ's disciple, be the "salt of the
earth." He must come in contact with
the unsaved, thereby lettinu his light
shine so it can lead others into the sale
way, to the "Lamb of tJod that lakes
away the sins of the world." The pur
pose of the church, then, is to shelter,
to protect, to strengthen, and unfor
tunate is the man that fails to see this
power and thus concluds that he is just
as safe out, just as strong out, and
therefore believes he is just as good. A
statement that cast reduction upon the
judgment of the Christ, who saw fit to
build It, who chose this way for the sal
vation of man. If there is no differ
ence between the church and the
world, Jesus made a blunder; if there
is, the man out of it Is wrong. A man
acknowledges his weakness when he
gives utterance to such a statement. It

faithful Christian men, that is the
power for good. We thank Ood for the
blessiugs and privileges that are vouch
safed to us in His church. We thank
1 1 i in for these comfortable houses in
which to praise His holy name. While
we consider the church in its polity,
we must not forget the state in its pol
ity and their relation to each other.
Three theories have prevailed in prac
tice concerning the relations of church
First, church supremacy over civil
government. Second, state supremacy
over church. Third, church and state
reciprocally independent. The last is
evidently the purpose and plan of the
author of Christianity. This principle
is advanced when he said: "Render,
therefore, unto Ca'sar the tilings which
are Cesar's, and unto God tbe things
which are God's."
Yet with this independence there is
a relation. The state looks to tbe
church for the character of Its citizens;
and the church in turn receives protec
tion ol" its property and also from dis
turbance in its worship, so that wecan
worship "according to the dictates of
our own consciences." is It claiming
too much to sav that it's a divine bless
ing that we can worship the Father
when and where and the way we
choose, and the enemy "shall not hurt
nor destroy in all my holy mountain;
for the earth shall be full of the knowl
edge of the Lord, as the waters cover
the sea." We praise God lor the enjoy
ment of these privileges. He has given
us "cattle on a thousand hills," caused
our burns to overflow with the tat of
the laud. With but a little exception,
has given us peace with the world. ,
I nm reminded just here that we are

ST. LOUIS FAIR.
Hood River will be well represented
in the fruit display at the St. Louis world's
fair next year. Joseph A, Wilson, man
ager of the Hood River Apple' Growers'
union, last week shipped to Superin
tendent W. II. Wehrung, at St. Louis,
33 boxes of the finest apples ever grown
in Oregon. The fruit will be kept in
cold storage until the exposition opens
in May, when it will be put on exhi
tion with apples from all parts of the
world. Apples like these ought to have
no trouble in carrying off tbe gold med
als. The fruit was gathered up and care
fully packed by My. Wilson. He paid
$2 a box for most of the apples and
must await the pleasure of the state of
Oregon to. reimbursement.
The varieties sent were: Spitzenburg,
10 boxes; Yellow Newtowns, six boxes;
Arkansas Black, four boxes; Hyde's
King of the West, four boxes; Oitley,
three boxes: Gano, two boxes; Dela
ware Red, two boxes; Genatin.one box;
Winesap, one box. . i
Those who donated their apples free
were F. W. Angus and II. C. Hengst.
E. Locke had intended to furnish some
apples for exhibition, but the fine speci
mens he had laid aside got mixed up by
his packers, and were sold with his
Amazed at Big Apples From Oregon.
St. Louis Globe-Democrat.
"Uncle Joe" Mason about the beet
known officer on the police force, has
been a common benefactor to his broth
er officers about the Four Courts for the
fast few days. From the fruit belt of
load River bottoms in Oregon, "Uncle
Joe"recently received a barrel of luscious
big red apples from his son, and he saw
that there was a fair divide.
The apples were mainly Klondike
variety, magnificent specimens of the
great American fruit, perfect in shape,
finely scented and delicately flavored.
Two monstrous Gloria Mundi apples
were among the lot, and these went to
Dr. William R, Faulkner as curiosities.
Some of those received by "Uncle Joe"
several months ago weighed 18 ounces
each. The two that came in the last
shipment outclassed the former. One
of the last weighed 28 ounces and the
other was only a bit lighter.
"The Hood River valley is the finest
fruit belt in the world," says Mason.
"Apples are grown on three-year-old
stock that outclasses anything we have
in this part of the country.'' r
Mason's son has a large fruit farm in
the valley. It is young, but Mason
thinks there is a great future for it.
Receives Gold Medal for Apples.
Joseph A. Wilson has received the
gold medal he won at the fruit exhibit
at the Ogden meeting of the irrigation
congress last September.- The medal is
very handsome. Engraved on the ob
erse is the inscription: "Eleventh
National Irrigation Congress ' Arid
States Fruit Exhibit, Ogden, Utah,
September 15-18, 1903 Awarded to Jo
seph A. Wilson for Finest Display of
apples." The reverse contains the pict
ure of an Egyptian god shedding forth
an abundance of water upon the fields
of grain. The medal was awarded for
the best display of irrigated apples, three
varieties of 24 apples each. The apples
were gathered up by Mr. Wilson and
sent by him to Ogden. The three vari
eties were: Wolf River, grown by N.W.
Bone at Willow Flat; Yellow Newtowns,
grown by Mrs. J. L. Atkinson, Willow
Flat; Kings, grown by J. G. Jarvis
of the East Side. A condition of the
cotnpetion was that the apples shonld
come from irrigrted orchards.
Good apples can now be bought at
retail grocery stores in Portland at $1 50
per box. For $1.25 pretty good apples
can be bad. A good many are sold at
$1 per box. These are surfaced with
good apples, but underneath they are a
motley lot and there is probably not
actually two-thirds as much apple which
can be utilized in the f 1 boxes as in the
fl.50 boxes, besides being of poorer
quality. Rural Northwest.

yon what a wonderful effect Chamber

The day before Easter I was so dis
tressed with a cold and cough that I did
not think to be able to take any duties
the next day, as my voice was almost
choked by the rough. The same day I
received an order from yon for a sample
bottle of your cough remedy. I at once
procured a sample bottle ,and took about

(lacier Clubbing Rates.
When renewing your subscription to
the Glacier it might be well to remem
ber that we give clubbing rates to some
excellent Eastern papers. The Inter
Ocean, that sterling republican paper
and all-round newspaperman be secured
for 40 cents through clubbing with the
Glacier. The Inter Ocean has a page of
up-to-date farm and horticultural news.
The Twice-a-Week Republic, a demo
cratic paper, can be had for 50 cents
added to the price of the Glacier. The
Republic is a great newspaper, and like
the Inter Ocean, its news columns are
reliable and impartial, without regard to
politics. One issue of the week of the
Republic gives a supplement devoted to
farm and horticultural news that is well
worth the price of the paper.
The Toledo Blade,a thoroughly repub
lican paper, but a weekly made up for
the family more than for the politician,
can be had through tbe Glacier for 50
cents a year.
But for a home agricultural journal
a journal made up expressly for the far
mer and fruit grower of Oregon and
Washington the Rural Northwest
stands at the head and should have the
largest circulation, of any farm paper on
the Pacific coast. 1L M. Williamson,
the editor and proprietor, is a 'conscien
tious student of the work of the farm
and orchard. He has made it a life
study, and no more reliable farm jour
nal than tbe Rural Northwest is pub
lished anywhere. The paper is pub
lished twice a month, and in clubbing
rates can be furnished by the Glacier
at 25 cents a year.
Purple Iris Beautified by Cultivation.
Bingen, Wash., Dec. 5, 1903. Editor
Glacier: The purple Iris or wild Crocus
(Liisynnchium granditlorum,) so abund
ant at many places along the Columbia
river above the Cascades, is a pretty
flower in its wild state, but when culti
vated generally forms larger many-flow
ered clusters, which are very beautiful,
especially if different colors are seen.
One of its greatest charms is its easi
ness, for it begins to bloom earlier than
the snowdrop, often early in January,
or sometimes even at Christmas.. Its
cultivation seems to be easy.Bince it will
grow almost anywhere, if kept dry and
undisturded during the dry season. Flat
rocks covered with an inch or two of soil
to hold moisture until April or May, may
be called favorable places for this flower.
The plants may be set out at any time
in iau or winter, unless tnow or
frost prevent it, and they will bloom
the following spring. W. N. S.

Surgery ig said to tie. older than
medicine, and probably, in' its simplest
offices, it is as old' as' human need for
it. Skulls of the neolltfjlc period give
evidence that the operation of trepan
ning was then practiced.
The Hindoo surgeon 'Susiutu, who
lived several centuries before Christ,;
had more than a hundred different
sorts of surgical instruments, and there
la abundiffft proof that his countrymen
were skilled In amputation, lithotomy
and operations for" hernia, fistula and1
even for restoring lost ears and uoses' '
Hippocrates', who live 400 B. C, was
a skillful' surgeon, and discoveries by
Ebers and others in Egypt prove that
the ancient Egyptians practiced sur
gery, with suitable instruments, nearly
6,000 years ago. .
Among the six" hermetic books of
medicine mentioned " by ' Clement of

The mechanism of the Ienndoot of
a chicken or other bird that' roosts on
a limb Is a marvel of design. It often
seems strange that a bird wIH sit on a
roost and sleep all nlghfwltbont fall
ing off, but the explanation is perfectly
simple. , The tendon of;, the leg of a
bird that roosts is so' arranged that
when the leg. is bent at the knee the
claws are bound to contract and thus
hold wltb a sort of death grip the limb
round which they are placed. Put a
chicken's feet on your wrist, and then
make the bird sit down; and. you will
have a practical illustration on your
kin that you will remember for some
time. By this' singular 'arrangement,
