THE DAWN OF A NEW AGE.
What would the average youth of today think of his
chance in life if he were obliged to change places with the
young Abe Lincoln, the child of the backwoods? What it
ho found himself in a rude log cabin, without windows
ov floors, in the heart of the wilderness, far away from
schools, churches and railroads, without newspapers,
books or money? What would he think of having to walk
nine miles to attend a crude school in a little cabin?
What would the average youth of today think of scouring
the country for fifty miles around on foot to borrow a
few books, and then, after a hard day's work, to read
them at night by the light of a log fire? What if he were
obliged to start in life, like Lincoln, with less than a single
The youth of today have advantages and opportuni
ties undreamed of by Lincoln and those of his time. Rut
with these advantages come obligations.
In this time of easily acquired and universal intelli
gence there comes the dawn of a new age, a swift change
10 a new world.
Our grandfathers would be amazed, dumfounded,
could they know of the countless great innovations which
have become matters of everyday convenience and even
necessity to us, changing inconceivably all human life ami
character upon this whole earth, in the last tew years.
The telephone that carries the voice and the grapho
phone that preserves it are new. Electric cars whose lines
cobweb the continents, and airships which are accomplish
ing the seemingly impossible, are new. New is the wire
less, which to the query of Job: "Canst thou send the
lightnings and give ine answer?" flashes its "Yes!" across
the sea as quick as thought. The moving pictures, whose
possibilities for enlightenment are as yet scarcely touch
ed, are new. Subway trains and skyscrapers, revolution
izing city life, are new.
And these are but a few of' the everyday conveniences,
necessities, that have come rapidly with the dawning oi
the new age, the change to a new world.
Alert indeed must be the man, in any line of achieve
ment, who keeps pace with the swift advancement. And
v.oe to him who lags behind! His lot inevitably is cast
with the "hewers of wood and drawers of water."
Under these new conditions of rapid increase of uni
versal intelligence and inconceivably swift material de
velopment, no one knows into how big a man he may de
velope if he will but utilize his extra time in studying
something the world wants.
No man in this world of ours today can honestly say
he "never had a chance " The greatest chance in the
world the chance to train himself is open to every num.
"I won't spell any more. Those girls are cheating."
The boy who said this broke all the rules of school dis
cipline in refusing to participate further in a spelling con
test. He also broke the main rule of common ethics as
known among school children.
Thetteacher wisely let him alone, and after school ask
ed him what he meant by his rebellious declaration. The
boy explained that certain girls in the class were telling
each other how to spell words and thus dishonestly get
The teacher had not known that cheating was going
on. In relating the matter to a group of settlement
workers, she asked for expressions of opinion as to how
she could best break up the practice. Most agreed that
children should not be encouraged in shielding their com
panions in wrong-doing. It was agreed that every effort
possible should be made to protect pupils from getting the
reputation of being professional tale-bearers, but that,
nevertheless, for the good of the whole the wrong-doing
by the few must be exposed.
It is the spirit of gang loyalty which helps promote
crime among those portions of our population which are
evilly disposed. Wrong often finds its surest protection
in the reluctance of good people to reveal what they know,
so that others may not suffer.
Grave public wrongs, outright crimes, crying injus
tices are thus actually aided by people who really mean
well. It sometimes amounts to a serious flaw in citizen
ship. Does this spirit have its origin in the traditional ab
horence of tale-bearing at school? What do the thought
ful readers of this paper think about it?
The federal bureau of fisheries proposes to assist the
farmers in raising their own fish, and says an acre ol
ground devoted to the creating of a nice little pond will
grow a crop the like of which Luther IJurhank never
(I reamed of, and one more profitable than any the farmer
grows. The bureau proposes to furnish the fish to stock
the ponds as fast as the farmers prepare them. If you
want a fish pond at your door, prepare the pond and the
bureau will furnish the seed.
Elevating the colored race is one of the subjects just
now much discussed. Down South they do it without say
ing anything about it, the elevating being done so thor
oughly that the legs of the part of the colored race elevat
ed are not long enough to reach from its body to the
The Orogonian accuses President Wilson of "institut
ing a ruinous policy of international meddling by setting
out to eliminate Huerta." What, may we ask, did Presi
dent Wilson do other than to refuse to recognize Huerta
Being without water makes most South Salem resi
dents think conditions fit very closely Sherman's descrip
tion of war.

Poultney Bigelow informs the New York World that
"the compositor or proof-reader, or both, made him say
Bernard Shaw was an intellectual ass," when he reall'v
said Bernard Shaw was an "intellectual asset." There is
considerable difference, but those who have read any
thing of Shaw's will readily believe "the compositor,
or proof-reader, or both" knew Shaw much better than
lid the Honorable Poultney.
