ACCORDING to the veracious satire of Dean Swift,
. it seems that one day two cats, urged on by a malev
olent and violent spirit, ate each other up, leaving
nothing but their tails. There never has been a more
exhaustive treatment of any subject, anatomical or liter-
We may ask ourselves how it was possible. There are
physical laws denying it. After they had eaten each oth
er's teeth what had either left to eat with? And how
could each be stored in the other's stomach at the same
time? ..... ,
Nevertheless, we must concede the possibility of the
event and accept the historical accuracy of the account.
Indeed, one need not go so far as Kilkenny, but may wit
ness like incidents right at home.
Two women fall out and resort to slander. Each pro
duces to the public gaze all the frailties of the other; their
acquaintances complacently accept what each other says,
and in the end both characters are annihilated. Exeunt
Kilkenny cats.
Two men go to law or something. - They retain counsel,
enter complaints, subpena witnesses, empanel juries, hear
verdicts, make appeals, multiply costs. Adjournment aft
er adjournment, vexation after vexation, business neglect
ed, patience exhausted, years wasted and on both sides the
last dollar spent. The Kilkenny cats have interlocked
their claws, clashed each other's teeth, opened each oth
er's jaws, and gulped each other's all. Extermination is
just as complete as that at Kilkenny.
Yes, it is sad but true that all around us, in a thousand
ways, divinely gifted human beings are eating one another
up. And not always is so much as a caudal appendage
left. ' ' '

Professor Tower, of the University of Chicago, says NEVADA TO BE THE
there will always be red-neaaea gins. ' inis is tne mosi
cheering bit of news that has emanated from Chicago in
years. However, come to think of it, it does not make
any difference to the present generation whether or not
the red-headed girl will adorn the coming years as she
has heretofore illuminated them and brightened the
world, but that it is assured that she will be with us al
ways is cause of hearty congratulation for the genera
tions yet to come. If she holds out until the present gen
eration passes, it is enough for us, but just imagine if
you can a red-headedless world, and at the same time cut
out the dainty up-tilted nose that accompanies that shade
of capillary, the seashell complexion and the vivacious dis
position. Would it not be a sad and somber old world,
with no red in it?
It might be a good move to send George Fred Williams
to Mexico. There he can give full play to his vocabulary
and in several languages, some of them mixed. The only
objection to this is that Boalt has taken possession of the
Mexican border and would, not let another hot-air artist
in without adding to the troubles of the Mexican situation.
The calamity howlers would be much happier if they
could make their complaints keep in tune with the market
reports and showings made by all industrial businesses.
A Boston politician says there should be but one sena

is already a senator, or only wants to be.
The outlook is reported by many prominent men as
being very bright. This may or may not be a slam at the
Colonel, who recently quit the Outlook. -

The Corvallis & Eastern Railroad Co. is virtually re
building the railroad track between Albany and Yaquina
bay. Already thirty-six miles of heavy steel have been
laid on the western end of the line, and large crews are
at work rebuilding the bridges and ballasting the track.
By the end of the year it is probable that an almost new
roadbed and track will unite the main line of the Southern
Pacific with the coast, making travel more pleasant and
fraught with less possibility of danger and delay. Al
ready the service is much improved, making the trip to
Newport, our most popular beach resort, much more at
tractive than ever before. The railroad is to be com
mended for its progressive policy.

imminent today as a resntt of the ac
tion of the company in peremptorily
discharging 1400 employes who had
marched back to their places.
The strike, whic started several

workers, was generally believed until
today to have been compromised.
Should another walkout occur, violence
between the opposing factions waa
feared. .
