It is not safe to trust people who are hibitually inac
curate in their work. Even with the best of intentions
in the wnvlH rhpv hppnmp rlichnnpcf Rpfnvp tViPv nrpl
aware of it, the habit of inaccuracy extends to their
statements. They do not take pains to be thorough in
anything they undertake, even in clearly expressions of
These people never carry much weight in a com
munity, however honest in principle they may be, because
no reliance can be placed on their words or work. You
cannot depend upon what they tell you. If they are
orators, they are discredited; if they are at the bar, the
judges always take their statements with a grain of salt;
if in the pulpit, they 'do not win the respect of the congre
gation. In fact, Whatever those people do, they are placed
at a disadvantage because of their habit of inaccuracy.
There is a great difterence between going just right
and a little wrong. These victims of. inaccuracy did not
start right. They failed to realize that what is put into
the first of life is put into the whole of life.
A pebble in a tiny stream will turn the course of a
river, so the seemingly unimportant habit of inaccuracy
has kept many a man from success by changing the cur
rent of his life.
Accuracy, doing things to a finish, is one of the most
important lessons that can be taught a child, because
there is a moral quality at stake. The whole character
is often undermined by the unfortunate habit of inac
curacy. Men whose ability would have made them peers in
their communities become nonentities, and their careers
mediocre or total failures, simply because they were
allowed in childhood to form the habit of half-doing
things, and of making half or exaggerated statements.
China and Japaln have reached an agreement that
encroaches on the rights of China far less than seemed
possible from the demands of Japan as first reported.
Japan gets the transfer of all concessions made to
Germany in the Shantung Peninsula, and the continua
tion for ninety-nine years of the leases held by Russia in
South Manchuria, which were gained by Japan as a result
of the Russo-Japanese war.
The agreement also safeguards the investments and
contracts of Japanese capitalists in the coal and iron
mines and iron works in the vicinity of Han-yang, on the
Yangtse, and gives them rights to further investments
and industrial activity in China.
China agrees also, in the interest of the preservation
of Asiatic rule in the Far East, not to make any more'
concessions to Western nations, like those made to Ger-
many at Kiao-chow, or to Great Britain at Chefu, andj
especially not to allow any foreign nation to establish:
naval bases on the coast of Shantung or of Fukien, oppo-
site the Japanese possession of Formosa. Under condi
tions Kiao-chow is to be returned to China.
The only encroachment on the soverignty of China is
that preferance is to be given Japanese as political, fin
ancial, military and police advisers. But this China may
avoid by qualifying its own men to act without foreign
advice. In general the effect of the agreement is to
preserve the Far East for the Chinese and Japanese.
The "older boys' conference" of Oregon will be held
in Salem this month and special efforts are being made
to properly entertain the delegates during their stay. In
this work all citizens may share and many are volunteer
ing their assistance to Mr. Rogers, who has taken the
matter in hand. The movement in the interest of the wel
fare of the boys of the country seems inspired by the
highest of motives to direct them along the way to use
ful, industrious lives. It is sought to show them how
their characters may be built up through proper methods
of work and recreation alike, and the possibilities are
great, since the interest and example of older persons al
ways exert an influence upon youthful minds and lives,
Salem people are thus afforded an opportunity to par
ticipate in a work that is building for the future in the
coming citizenship of the commonwealth.
This year it has been demonstrated that the Oregon
prune crop can be marketed profitably even in the ab
sence of foreign demand. While the price received was
not high, it left a fair margin of profit to the grower
whose yield was good. The light crop in the Willamette
valley was offset by a large California crop and it is
possible that conditions may be reversed next year, since
two heavy crops seldom follow in succession and it will
be California's turn to face the shortage next year. The
price of prunes is higher now than when most of the
growers sold indicating that the demand was not fully
supplied. This should mean a complete clean-up and an
unusually good price next year.
Those prosperity items are coming so thick and fast
from all parts of the country that there can be little
doubt of their reliability. In Western Oregon the revival
of the lumber industry alone is needed, and there are
already indications that this will not long be delayed.
The dispatches say that Bryan may run again but it
will not be much of a race. He sprinted away from the
duties and responsibilities of the office of secretary of
state in the hour of national uncertainty and peril and his
running in the future will attract little attention.
When an American editor can think of nothing else
to write about he can always discourse upon the mistakes
of the military leaders of the entente .alliance. As a
nation of generals we have Mexico beaten to a frazzle.
The way the prohibitionists are campaigning Oregon
would indicate that they had not yet received the returns
from the election of last November.
I jaunted in my motor car, and ran o'er Jimpson's
shote, and from that creature knocked the tar; I surely
got its goat. I offered payment for the pig 'twas
neither large nor fat but Jimpson made
the price too big; I wouldn't stand for that.
"The rankest graft I ever saw," I cried
with rising ire; "before I'll go to law a
lawyer I shall hire." We went to law; the
case was tried by judges near and far; and
now I see the lawyer ride in my nice motor
car. I trudge along on weary feet, all
burdened with disgust; the lawyer scoots
along the street, and covers me with dust.
Old Jimpson had a hundred pigs,, that fed
on cockle-burs; they ve gone to purchase
gowns and wigs for stately barristers. We stood last
night by my abode, to cuss the legal rich; my lawyer
motored down the road, and shoved us in the ditch. For
such a dark and dismal shame there's nothing can atone;
the car that climbed my palsied frame was formerly my
own. Oh, Jimpson had a hundred hogs, and I a choo
choo cart; and he has nothing now but dogs, and I a
broken heart.

Plaintiff (in law suit). So you

His Counsel. I think we will get it.
Scene I. (Club cafe. Tanker and
I.isson at a table. Tanker expounds.)
Yes, as I was saying, my wife doesn't
know the meaning of the word save.
She's always spending money for
something she doesn't need. Have
another cigar, old man. . I put all
the ready money I had into a car-.-a
man needs a little recreation after
business hours and what does she
do but up and buy a pianol She
doesn't know one note from another,
and naturally that means a course of
lessons. Guess we'd better have just
another little bottle of that wine,
hadn't we? I've just been moving
into larger and better offices. I got
tired of that dingy little hole I was
in. Help business? Well, I don't
know about that part of it. Busi
ness was all right in the old place.
Still, I though I'd like a change even
if the rent is a whole lot higher.
Well, the point is, no sooner do I
move than she begins to worry the
Hie out of me about moving out of
our flat into a bigger, more expensive
one further downtown. And she had
no earthly reason except that she
didn't like the neighborhood we were
in. Then, as soon as we got moved,
she began to buy all sorts of high
priced furniture. And she knew as
well as I did that I had just put a
small fortune into new office fixtures
She said our old stuff wasn't good
enough for the new location. That's
the way it goes. I do all the econo
mizing. No, no, old chap, this one's
on me.
The whole thing Is enough to dis
courage a man. A woman ought to
be willing to do some of the saving,
but no, just as soon as I think I'm
beginning to get on my feet, she
runs me 'way into debt again for
some kind of nonsense. She spends
ait enormous amount on clothes. I
like to see a woman dress well, but
there's a limit. O yes, I like to dress
well myself, but I'll bet I don't spend
half as much as she does on clothes.
Well, say two-thirds or three-auar-tcrs.
And the candy bills she runt
upl You'd naturally suppose a full
grown woman could exist without
candy every minute. My turn again,
old man. Aud try another of these
cigars. Yes, they sell for a quarter,
but I get them by the box.
I'll tell you what made me more
disgusted than anything else, and
that's a brand-new proposition she
sprang on me last niglit. She already
has a coolt and a housemaid, and now
what does she want but a butlcrl
Think of it, on my incomel Whv.
we'll simply gn to smash if a halt
isn't called pretty soon. I told her
we couldn't atlord it, and she abked
me why I didn't discharge the chauf
feur. Said I'd learned how to run
the car, and didn't need him any
mora. I suppose there it something
in that, but who wantt to be grimed
up all the time from monkeying with
a lot of greasy machinery? Sorry
you're going. Let's have a little drink
first. Good-by. If you hear of my
going bankrupt, remember I prophe
sied it. So-long.
Scene II. (A grocery-store. Tan
ker still expounding.) Good Lordl
b'ifty cents for butter? When I taw
it on the bill, I told mv wife it must
he a mistake. And forty-eight for
eggs I No wonder a man can't get
nlong these days. Somebody's in wait
to rob him from the time he gelt
up till he goes to bed. You areu't
to blame for the prices? Maybe not,
but who Is? They all tay tlie tarn
