G. Y. Edwards returned Monday
evening from Chicago, where he spent
three weeks on business. He attended
the land and apple show at that place
and said that the apple show was held
in a separate building and but a small
portion of the crowd took much inter
est in the apples. The land show was
big attraction. The O. R. & N. Co.
had an exhibit of half a dozen boxes of
apples from the different sections of
Oregon in the land show building, but
the main apple exhibit, including the
Sproat car of Spitzenburgs, was held
in a separate building. The principal
interest was in the land show. It was
visited by thousands of people, who
are interested in the Pacific North
west. The most of the inquiries, said
Mr. Edwards, came from the city
people. Not many of the farmers of
the east and middle west could be in
terested in the high priced lands of
this country. They could not believe
the stories of the big returns from a
small acreage. The clerks, business
and professional men of the city, how
ever, were looking up the matter, and
Mr. Edwards believes many of them
will be out here next year to investi
gate for themselves.

Christian Benevolence- Is It Fair.
On a recent visit to the Oregon In
dustrial School, we were told by the
superintendent that there were at least
twenty boys in that institution that
should not be in a school of correction.
A prosecuting attorney of the Wil
lamette Valley county also said that
he was constantly sending boys to this
school who were not bail, but were in
need of oversight and there was no
place else to send them. It is a well
known fact that many boys are sent to
a reformatory simply because they are
not wanted in the home. Often on a
charge of incorrigibility the child is
sent from home and must carry
through life the stigma of having been
in a reformatory. There came under
my observation the case of a divoroed
wrap and mail your Xmas
V I
mother who wanted to give away her
two boys, six and eight years of age,
that she might be free to marry again.
In the above-mentioned visit to the
reform school I asked a boy, who by
his shy manner attracted me, where
his home was. 1 shall never forget
the lonesome, homesick look in his
eyes as he said: " have no home
now. I used to live In Baker City, but
my mother has gone east and left me."
In the name of these wronged
children I protest. It is unfair to put
a child who has done no wrong into a
reformatory. Th re should be a bet
ter place for him. There should be
a school where these boys could be
placed under Christian teaching and
trained for useful citizenship. Such a
school would not be a reformatory,
but a formatory. Some one has said
that it is better to build a hedge at the
top of a precipice than to build a hos
pital at its base. So the host way to
reform a bad boy is to keep him from
becoming bad.
A company of Christian men might
form a corporationand combine business
and philanthropy in the purchase of a
triict of land which, properly culti
vated, would pay a reasonable rate of
interest on the investment and at the
same time provide a self-sustaining
school. Here boys would be saved
from becoming undesirable members
of society by being placed in a Chris
tian environment and taught ' the
dignity of work. After the manner of
"Boyville," the "citizens" would
be taught the duties and privileges of
citizenship. Only eternity would
reveal the far reaching results of
such an institution.
