Thuro wore services in Woodland,
All Iho bluebells rang nt duwn;
Jnck-ln-the-1'ulplt spoke mom ably,
In a spuclous, hlgh-archcd lawn.
Uroeunei mid Niiowdropn
Woro tho Ushers for tho season;
This had born their placo for ages
I suppose that was the reason.
Trumpet flowers gnve opening notes;
Hreozcs turned tho leaves of hymn books
Kor tho singers In the choir,
And the child-flowers In the nooks.
The text was "Jlcmuty, Love and Peace."
Then there came u breathloss calm,
And 1 caught tho gentle whisperings
Of a sweetly touching Tsalm,
When xnphyrs claimed tho dally offering
Petals fell In beauty rare;
And tho perfume from the flowers
I.Ike an Incense filled the air.
Iluttercups In solemn glory
Held pure drops of crystal dew;
None there were 'who did not sup
In this communion, sweet and true.
The modest bluo eyed violet
Hang a solo near tho alter;
Though thorn were nods or admiration
Her soft, sweet voice seemed not to fuller.
llutterflles, like winged flower-spirits
Hovnred lightly o'or the spot
Kissed companions of the onrth world,
Who, unconscious, heeded not.
Vesper songs of eventide
Came as gentjy as tho dews.
Htar-benms sent direct from Heaven
Kopt a watch o'or flowery pews.
Then a liusb, so deep and holy,
Kell upon this woodland bower;
Tho nightshades bowed in noncdlctlon
At Jho solemn closing hour.
Flowers, like people, have distinctions;
Home are proud, ntyl some old-fashioned;
Bomo are modest, shy ond dnlnty;
Some arc gay, and some impassioned.
tlut tho flowors of every color,
Kvery station, every need.
Worships at tho same great altar
Just one Ood, find Just ono Creed.
I learned those lessons In Uie woodlands,
Thtnrough the hnppy summer hours,
And I asked Ood, In his wisdom,
Why ho gavo not souls to flowers.

' pounding away at the people of Port
land to got them at work to do some
thing toward getting tho Natron Cut
. off completed. Tho great loss which
! they aro continually suffering in n
j business way for the lack of this
'short construction Is being pointed
out to them with figures which they
cannot Ignore. The following inter
I view appears in the Oregon Journal
of March Fifth:
OtTes Portland want to annex tho
. trndc of Klamath County? Or docs
I Portland wish to sit complacently by
and soo business worth many millions
' of dollars a yenr continue to go to
S.i n Francisco?
i" Building the Natron cut-off and
promoting highway construction that
will put beef and lumber and other
'wealth of Klamath county on. auto
trucks and freight cars moving be
tween Klamatlr Falls and .Portland
will satisfactorily answer the ques
tions, Hnys Judge George T. Haldwln,
state senator from the Seventeenth
district comprising Crook, Deschutes,
Jefferson, Klamath and Luke coun
ties. Judge Ilaldwln is here to get
the co-operation of Portland in mak.
Ing Klamath county actually a part
of Oregon, Except for the Invisible
stato boundary, tho groat district
with Its vigorous productivity and al
most untouched resources is a part of
California and a prime asset to San
Francisco, he says. His plea will be
presented before the business men oi
Portland before he returns to his
"At the present time." said Judge
Iluldwin, this morning, "Klamath
Falls is 434 milos from San Francis
co by rail. Hut the distance by rail
between Klamath Falls nnd Portland
is 007 miles. If the Natron cut-oft
were complete Klamath Falls would
bo 329 miles by rail from Portland.
This would givo Portland an advan
tage of 105 miles, whoro San Fran
cisco now has nn advantage of 73
"To Klamath county this would
meftn n saving of nearly $50,000 n
year nn our shipments of beef cattlo
alone, to say nothing ot the savings
on our Immense shipments of sheep
"Why not holp Klamatlrcounty be
como a part of Oregon In reality? Wo
havo n city bf 5,000 people, but we
were, next to Pprtland In freight re
ceipts among 'the cities of Oregon
last year. We wore ninth In bank do
posits. Wo are at tho beginning of a
great growth. Irrigation, power ide
velopment, lunibor manufacture,
livestock, these are but a few of the
rapidly expanding sources of wealth
nnd business In tlfo Klamath country.
"Great areas will be placed under
Irrigation within tho next two years.
At tho present time 75,000 acres
have been Irrigated und this area wl
easily be doublod. The county is
wonderfully well watered with lakes
and rlvors and has plenty of vtiver
for pumping plants. No district grows
hotter timothy, alfalfa and alsyko.
"Klamath county has over 30,000,-
000,000 feet of timber which will run
75 por cent pine, and It Is practically
all easy of access,
"Geographically all tho tradd of
Hlamaili should come to Portlund,
but the railroad distance Is shorter, to
San Francisco. Tho completion of
the Natron cutoff would not only
mako the distance shorter to Port
land than to San Francisco, but
would bo on a' grade not exceeding
one per cent. The saving In shrink
age on shlpmcntH of beef milimils
would save us the $50,000 a year I
Hpoko of Passengers could leave
Klamath Falls at G o'clock In the eve
ning and be In Portland for break
fast, transact their business und be
back In Klamath Falls the next morn
ing, saving not only time, but $7 In
"About Aevcn miles south of
Klamath Falls lies the lower Klam
ath mnrshland that, reclaimed, would
produce an much hay as all Klaniuth
county now or Siskiyou county, Cali
fornia., "Klamath county bus two fUh
hatcheries and the lakes and rlverx

"Great development In the north
ern part of Klamath county would
follow the completion of the Natron
cut-off. The Indians of Klamath re
servation, ot whom, there aro about
1 100 should have their allotmonU
completed and the reservation, which
is 40 miles square, should then be
thrown hpen to settlement.
"KInmuth county will votu bonds
up to 6 per cent of its assessed valu
ation for highway construction, I
am sure, as soon as the people auth
orize the amendment permitting fiicIi
uic of credit by the counties of Ore
gon. The Central Oregon highway
will be connected up, ns will tho road
coi-necting with the Pacific highway
and tho road to the boundary of Crati
cr Lake national park. With the holp
of Portland and the rest of the state
we will bind Klamath county to Ihiv
city and the state with bands of steel
nnd ribbons of hardsurfaced ioad-j."

WASHINGTON, March 8. The
Ml dalle West will have undisputed
control of legislationin -the next
house, as the result of tho tentative
organization of the big house com
mittees by the Republicans.
Every chairman with two excep
tions is from west of Pennsylvania
which is the farthest state east re
presented. Floor Leader M.ann was
temporary chairman of the commit
tee on commilteos which did tho or
ganizing. Tho tentative organization
was agreed on because of the uncer
tainty as to whether tbeio would be
.tlmo vto effect a permanent organiza
tion before the special session is call
ed. Jnc this tentative organization
the seniority rulo was followed, rank
ing Republican members becoming
chairmen, nnd other Republican mem
bers retaining their memberships. As
a result of this procedure tho big
committees will bo headed as follews:
Each, Wisconsin; interstate com
Huughcn, Idva, agriculture.
Porter, Pennsylvania, foreign af
fairs. Kennedy, Iowa, rivers and harbors.
Volstoad, Minnesota, Judiciary.

as a protectionist and will have

jslons of tariff until congress Is ro-convonod,
Disappointment was changed to
keen delight yesterday by the receipt
of a telegram from County Surveyor
Dariey, stating fhathe was going to
The Dalles to be present at the meet
ing ot the highway commission in
that city last evening. The telegram
from the Good Roads Association, ad
dressed to him ln Salem, did not
reach him, and the officials 0 that
organization were blue'wlth'despAlr .
when this word was received. But
County Judge Bunnell was wiser than
the rest ,and by sdme legerdemain-
reached him by wire, and last even
ing rtteUed a telegram from Dariey
stating that he would attend the
meeting at The Dalles.
Not only was this news cheering,
but that also conveyed ln a question
he asked; Could a meeting be ar
ranged at which would.be present the
county Judge from Lake County.
"Connect all other items," continues
the telegram, "in the big event, and
it should include the' meeting of tbo
delegates of the Oregon Chamber of
Commerce ami Highway Commis
sion." The conclusion reached by those
seeing tho telegram, is that Dfrley
has hypnotized the Highway Commis
sion into coming to Klamath Falls,
and if this is right, he is a wonder,
and in appreciation of his gifts. Klam
ath Falls will givo them a reception
that will make things hum.
Judge Bunnell immediately got
into communication with the county
Judge of Lake County, and that offi
cial notified him that he could be
hero at any time after the 17th of
March. This information was wired
to Dariey, and it Is expected that be
will arrange a meeting accordingly
it ho does not bring the commission
homo with him to supervise the big
road program that Is going to be put
through iu Klamath County this year.
. Get roauy for the big event! Klam
ath County is going to do tfiings, and
do them right. It has the right kind
of n county court, the right kind of a
countv engineer, the right kind of a
road association, and it has the right
kind of a spirit. And with such a
start it is bi'iind to win.
