trouble to ascertain tho Import of the
measure upon which thoy volo.
The speaker dtscusscd many of 1
thn personal qualities by which tho
slzo of a cltltim Is to bo determined.
In discussing tho attitude toward
work, tho speakor expressed satisfac
tion that tho hour ot labor havo
been decreased, but pointed out tho
danger ot Idleness nnd nilsuio of tho
tlmo not occupied.
"flavo tho bublt of work, and wo
shall go a Ions way toward estab

national life," said ho, pointing to
tho fuel Hint thnso conspicuous In
publle and private life hnvo nover
known any limitation of hours.
Ho pleaded for healthy minds,
pointing out that thoro must bo
what ho termed a "conservation of
spirit," by aweoplng out of mind all
Jealously, envy and hatrod, tho on
"" tortatnmant of which was not only
fruitless but tlmo-consumlng and
paralysing nn to constructlvo effort.
Ho stated that a good "forgottory"

Mr. Orocsbock contended that from
a dollars and cents standpoint Kla
math county could not afford to bo
without good roads.. Ho cited an in
stance whoro a sot of tires was com-
plotoly rulnod on a trip to Klamath
Hot Springs nnd hack. Tho cost to

would havo kept a man and toom

tho tiro dealer, tho 11GG went to nn

dared, tons and porhaps hundreds
ot thousands of dollars aro lost to
