Bandon, Or., July 12. Yesterday aft
ernoon, as scheduled, Dr. B. K. Leach,
editor of the small paper here, who was
ordered out of town by a committee of
citizens because he had lent editorial
support to the Industrial Workers, of
the World, who are reported to be pro-
paring to invade Bandon, waa put
aboard the steamer Coquille and ac
companied by a committee of Bandon
business men, forwarded to Coquille.
There were no sympathizers to ob
ject to the deportation of Dr. Leach,
and he was a sorry figure, alone and
friendless. Practically the entire citi
zenship was present to witness his de
parture and the steamer Favorite, also
loaded with business men, accompanied
the delegation to Coquille.

Colonel Mulhall's 'patriotic" story
of the lobbying feats of the National
Association of Manufacturers reduces
that association to the infinitesimnlly
absurd. His statement that he only
spent $20,000 a yeaf for ten years in
buying up senators, representatives
and Btate leaders is an astounding rev
elation of amateurism. The association
should have sent him to school to John
P. Archbold years ago.
Mr. Archbold could have taught hun
something of real values. Was it not
Foraker who badly needed $16,000 in
one year and got it! That was the
way to do it, so long as you do not
write letters about it and carefully
preserve the cofiies for future use of
amused editors and investigation com
mittees. Colonel Mulhall must have been a pa
thetic figure, going about buying up
page boys and janitors. Mr. Archbold'
could have told him that he could not
influence an Indiana congressman
with six cocktails for any usoful, im
mediate purpose. Mr. Archbold could
have explained to him tho futility of
luring senators into five and ten-cent
stores in dazzling efforts at tompta
tion. No wonder he was discharged.
Take a .big, long telescope: look
through the wrong end of it at the
Standard Oil Company, and you will
see the Notional Association of Man
ufacturers. That is about the gist of
Colonel Mulhall's "confession." The
colonel himself looking through the
wrong end of tho telescope, would not
be visible to the humnn eye.
But one cannot help sympathizing
with the colonel in his efforts, if it is
true that he is really being sued for
$5000 for only half of his "confes
sion." Although the narrative deals mostly
with "small fry" lobbyists and legis
lators, the Examiner hopes the expos

PAS8IN0 OF FAELOB.
With the passing of the "parlor,"
the American housewife has been
brought up against a new situation.
And the "parlor" seems to be a thing
of the past. In the house with preten
sions to comfort and homeliness tho
room which takes its place is called
the living room; sometimes it is called
the drawing room, more after the fash
ion of England, although it is a simple
room where the family and guests fore
gathor from morning to night. The
only objection to the passing of the
parlor is that nowadays in many houses
there is no small room always in order
where guests may be received. The
idea of receiving them in the family
living room is good in many ways; but
a certain desire for privacy makes it
unpleasant to receive some persons in
the room which is the very nucleus of
the family's life.
BY DOBOTHY DIX.
A poor, foolish woman has written
me a letter about a great reform that
she wants to see inaugurated. She pro
poses to abolish age by denying that
any such thing exists.
She says that the lives of many wo
men are made wretched bv the thought
of growing old, and that thousands of
women ruin their health and bring on
nsanity by worrying over their age.
To prevent this (jatastrophe she would
have a law passed preventing the pa
pers publishing anything about age, and
forbidding people to ask each other
how old they are, or to speak of age
in any manner whatever. In fact, she
would make age the one taboo subject
in the world, and she thinks that the
result would be that everybody would
be young and happy and kittenish.
I'm sorry that I can't undertake to
push my correspondent's reform along,
but I can think of nothing more horri
ble than a world in which everybody
was young and foolish, or aping the
manners and the appearance of youth.
It would be like a picture without any
softening shadows, like music without
any minor chord in it, like a day that
was all garish noon without any pur
ple haze at twilight.
It takes age to ripen humanity, to
give it flavor and sweetness, just as
much as it does wine, and the Bocioty
of the intelligent man or woman of 50
or 60, who has seen and known life,
Is as much superior to that of the boy
and girl of eighteen or twenty as the
vintage of 1863 is to that of 1912.
Naturally, all of us dosire to keep
young in the sense of keeping our
bodies vigorous and our minds alert,
but, barring that, what have we to
foar from the years? Why should we
so dread tho coming of aget Especial
ly why should women worry about
growing old until they reach the point
of distraction, as my correspondent
avers that they dot
If a woman has been a raving, tear
ing beauty, we can understand her
agony at age robbing her complexion
of its fairness, her hair of its luster,
her oyos of their brightness.
But not one woman in a thousand is
a living picture, and it is an actual
fact that the great majority of women
are bottor looking as middle-aged ma
trons than they were as Klrls. Often
and often ago is tho sculptor that
chisels rough features into syrnmotry
or gray hairs soften a hard faco into
comeliness, and many times just tho

Age also means to the average woman
the playtime of life, and in this coun
try it generally brings with it com
forts and - luxuries. The early years
of most American married women are
strenuous ones. They are busy bringing
up their children and working and
economizing; trying to help their hus
bands get a Btart in the world, but
by the time they are fifty years old
their task is done, and they are ready .
