THAT RAILWAY TO MOUNT ANGEL
the small seed from which fortune springs that wonder
ful growth for which all of us long. . '
If one would have one of these wonderful plants for
his own, if he dreams of sitting at ease under its branches
in his old age, he must go about it in a rational way. He
must treat that little disc of copper, one cent, as a true
fortune seed deserves. He will not -scatter and waste
seeds so valuable but will plant them in soil which will
foster them. .
The Oregon City Enterprise printed the following
editorial the other day which is of special interest to tne
people of Salem especially its commercial interests:
"Many fanners along the line of the Willamette Valley
Southern are compelled to work under a serious handicap
in shipping to points to the south, and not through any
fault of the local electric line. The Willamette Valley
Southern touches the Southern Pacific at three points
" Oregon City, Molalla and Mt. Angel, but at none of these
places is there a track connection, owing, Willamette
Valley Southern officials say, to the other road.
"When a Monitor farmer wants to ship a car of pota
toes to Salem, that car must be hauled through Molalla,
Oregon City and into Portland and then south from Port
land on the Southern Pacific. Several times the direct
distance between the two towns is covered before the car
is delivered. If a transfer could be made at Mt. Angel,
or even at Molalla, there would be a material reduction
in the freight charge and that Monitor farmer would be
much better able to compete in prices with potato growers
in other counties. In his case, the shipping point and the
place of delivery are in the same county, but to reach its
destination the car of potatoes must travel through
riarkamas and Multnomah counties and then back again
"The immediate result to the Willamette Valley South
ern would be a loss in freight receipts, but the officials
of the line are broad minded enough to see that in the end
the country would develop faster and the receipts be
"The matter is now before the state railway commis-
' sion and a date for the hearing has been set. The point
to be proven by those favoring the connections between
the two lines is where the traffic over the connecting line
would warrant its cost. A thousand farmers in Clack
amas and Marion counties say that it will."
The nronar solution of this difficulty would be the ex
tension of the electric road from Mount Angel into
Salem. It was expected that this would be done during
the present fall, but President Dimick recently announced
a postponement 01 tnese pians, owing 10 nnanciai cunuf
Salem ought to have direct railway connection with
the Mount Angel territory and much development would
. follow the construction of the road through Howell
Prairie to this city. We do not know what steps, if any,;
i have been taken by the Commercial Club to co-operate
with the railway officials, but the project is well worth
special attention, in order that it may not be longer de
layed than is absolutely necessary.
An electric railway to Oregon City and Portland, via
Mount Angel, would be a great factor in the growth of
a very important part of Marion county.
THE SEED OF FORTUNE
. State Senator Strayer, of Baker, has a plan for com
piling all the inacuracies of legislation at the last session
of the legislature so that they may be taken up at the
next session and straightened out. That might be a good
idea as tending to keep the legislators busy without en
acting the usual mess of fool and freak laws.
Nebraska wants Justice Hughes to run for president,
which is excellent confirmation of the report that Bryan
has finally broken off the habit of running:. Nebraska
must have a candidate, even if she borrows one from
An English medical authority says that eating apples
improves the morals. It also improves the apple trade,
for the greater the consumption the greater the demand,
and that's what the growers look for. ,
The county courts of Marion and Polk seem to have
reached the conclusion that the way to get a new bridge
across the Willamette is to build it.
Bryan is president at last of the Winona Chautauqua
EAT LESS AND TAKE .
Take a Glass of Salts Before
Breakfast If Your Back
Hurts or Bladder
Little horns of whiskey, little cups of beer, make a
gent feel frisky as a tall roan steer. For a little season
he feels passing well, and he sees no reason why he
shouldn't yell. Then the peelers cart him
to the village jail, and the judge will part
him from his bunch of kale. If he has no
money says the jurist, then, "Break some
boulders, sonny, with the . other men."
There a while he'll languish, young man in
the hole, while green streaks of anguish
sizzle through his soul. Little drops of bit
ters lend amusement brief, then will land
poor critters in some kind of grief. If it
isn't jailing it is something worse: ask the who carelessly inid tho bricks ii

Little steaming toddies, taken now and then, ruin minds ; m wan had fuiien and he lost m po
and bodies of all kinds of men. For the more you swal
low, they the louder cry, for some more to follow, which
you can't deny. Little tots of brandy, little slugs of gin,
show the short and handy way to be all in. .
The American men and women must
guard constantly against Kidney troub
le, because we eat too much and all our
food is rich. Our blood is filled with
uric acid which tho kidneys strive to
filter out, they weaken from overwork,
become sluggish; the eliminative tis
sues clog and tho result is kidney
trouble, bladder weakness and a gen
eral decline in health.
When your kidneys fool liko lumps of
lead; your back hurts or tho urine is
cloudy, full of sediment 'or you arc
obliged to seek relief two or three times
during tho night; if you suffer with
sick licodaeho orNdizzy, nervous spells,
acid stomach, or you have rheumatism
when tho weather is bud, get from
your pharmacist about four ounces of
jnd Salts; take a tablespoonful in a
glass of water before- breakfast for a
few djiys and your kidneys will then
act fine. This famous salts is made
from tho acid of grapes and lemon juice
combined with lit'.iir., uud has been used
for generations to flush and stimulate
clogged kidneys; to neutralize the acids
in tho urine so it no longer is iv source
of irritation, thus ending bladder dis
orders. .lad Salts is inexpensive; cannot in
jure, makes a delightful effervescent
lithia-water bevcrago, and belongs in
every home, bocauso nobody can make
a mistnke by having a good kidney
flushing nny time.
"An Unturned Cake"
Subject of Sermon
Tho above was tho subject of the
junior soncnon by Rev. Carl H, Elliott
Sunday morning, the text being Ifosea
7:8, "Ephraim is An Unturned Cake."
Tho minister presented a pancake
linked on ono side only and asked tho
boys and girls to toll what wns the
matter with ,it. Ono girl suid it was
burned and it was a boy who hit it
when he said, "It hasn't been turned."
Mr. Elliott then said that the text
suggested the habit of only half-doing
things and we ought to learn tho im
portance of cluing things well. - He ask
ed how many of the boys were allowed
to come to Sunday school and church
without their mother's looking them
over to sco that their hands and fnces
and ears were clean and only three of
the lads held up their hunds.
Ho mnnv say as they skimp their
work, "This won't be Been," "that
will do." A story was told of a man
Suppose that a man of twenty-one should make a vow
to put away at least five cents a day, each day in the
vear. and not to touch his savings for ten years.
Do you realize that at the end of that time he would
have $182.50 to his credit as tne
small he would never miss them?
Many enormous fortunes have grown from smaller
capital than this.
If one has good brains, energy and, at the age of 31,
a capital of $182.50, there is no reason why at the age
of 41 he should not have a very snug nest-egg indeed.
The saving habit grows faster than the interest.
If, in addition, he happens to have the money-making
talent, there is no reason why he should not be well started
on the road to wealth. .
The power of small things is one of the most im
portant facts of life. It is absurd and illogical to despise
and neglect the units, when there can be no tens and
hundreds without them. .
One penny may seem an insignificant thing, but it is
