A HARD HEARTED MANAGER
Henry Ford used poor judgment in selecting a financial
agent to look after his peace delegates. The name of this
agent is Plaintiff and he manages to classify his pro
teges as defendants; that is he is always on the opposite
Besides he lacks savoir faire whatever that is and
is shy of that delicate understanding of the working of
the faminine mind so necessary in one who is a fiduciary
capacity, is controlling the' strings of a very plethoric
purse, from which said feminine mind is supposed to
draw inspiration, and other things.
The dispatches tell us that Monday a bevy of the fair
ones fluttered around the hard hearted Plaintiff and
suggested that a stunning gown for each to display at the
big meeting at The Hague was a sine qua non, a ne plus
ultra, and would do more towTard getting the boys out of
the trenches before next Christmas than anything any
one had yet suggested.
Then they cooed: "Would not Mr. Plaintiff 0. K. their
bills at the leading modistes for the gowns aforesaid."
Why each of those gowns would be a loud voiced argu
ment for peace; a "Skookum wawa " making the wearers
that one irresistable force that would meet and upset
an immovable body the men in the trenches.
"Would he please'?'
Did he yield? come through? pungle?
Not so far as heard from.
On the contrary he stood like Ajax defying the light
ning, with the Ford purse strings tightly gripped, and
with flashing eyes replied "Nixie for you girls, there's
nothing doing,; skiddoo.''
"Would he let them stay in dear old Yurrup for a
while, and pay their passage back when they returned?"
Did he show tact, diplomacy, savoir faire, as afore
said? Rid he peddle them hot air flavored with taffy,
and tell them he and the whole party would be inconsol
ble if forced to make the.return without them?
Rid he tell them that life with them handy was one
glad sweet song, and without them, a cactus covered
desert without an oasis, and dry as Portland on New
Did he give them a jolly that made them just crazy
to "stay with the ship," and forget all about the gowns,
the later trip home and a long visit in Yurrup?
He did not.
He told them bluntly they could go home on the ship
with the balance of the party or foot the bills "the
mean old thing."
That is why he is a failure on the job. He needs to
have his mental clevis pen set over for he takes too much
land. As a soil expert would say: "He cuts more than
he can cover."
If it was for his wife he refused to buy a gown, the act
might be excusable; but with Henry Ford's millions back
of him and a bevy of women anguishing for gowns in
front, he is indeed of heroic mold who stands pat, says no
and sticks to it. Another Carnegie medal is due.
WEALTH AND HAPPINESS
"Think of the life of the New York millionaires!" ex
claims a South American observer, "think of the sleepless
nights they spend in their efforts to excel one another to
attract attention, even if only for a moment. 'A dog
would not be satisfied with such a life', they would un
doubtedly exclaim with Faust, if they knew Faust, which
most of them do not."
Hugo Wittman, in 1900, for fun, in his imagination,
bought everything which struck his fancy in the art de
partment of the Paris exposition. When he had bought
enough to furnish three rooms as he should like to have
them be found that it would cost him $24,000,000. "Then
I did not buy any more," he wrote in his diary, "because
I found that happiness was not included."
What would it have cost to furnish a mansion at this
rate? and this includes only what money will buy.
There are many other things which cannot be bought
and it happens the unbuyable things are the real things
so far as happiness goes.

Medford Sun: The required 5000
acres for the establishment of a beet
sugar factory has been secured, accord
ing to au announcement made by the
camnuign committee Inst night, and the
next move is up to the Oregon-Utah
Sugar company. Alex Nibley, secretary
of this concern, who has been in charge
of the Medford end of tho campaign
left Tuesday morning for Grants Pass
expecting to return on the afternoon
train, but failed. The beet sugar com
mittee has enough acreage signed and
promised to make up the full quota. It
is expected that a conference will be
held with Mr. Nibley this afternoon
and a definite decision reached. C. W.
Nibley is expected to arrive in the city
tho Inst, of the week, when another
cpnference will be held.

Influenza, or as it is more commonly called "the grip,"
is epidemic in nearly all sections of the country, and it
is of an unusually severe type. Cleveland and Detroit re
port about 100,000 cases each, and other cities are in
nearly if not quite as bad condition. Business is ham
pered by the employes being laid up, and also by the fact
that customers are in the same condition. It is one of
the most distressing diseases and its worst feature is the
ills it leaves behind it.
The United States correspondent wiring from Petro
grad yesterday gives some astonishing figures as to the
strength of the Russian armies. He places the veterans
now at the front at 4,000,000, the freshly armed troops at
5,000,000 and other millions being armed at the rate of
500,000 a month. He estimates Russia's strength at the
opening of spring at 12,000,000. It would seem that such
an army would be irresistable.
Bryan would be a thorn in the side of his former
superior, the president, and it is possible may stump the
country against him should he be nominated for presi
dent. There is not much point left on that thorn, but he
would make a good running mate for the bloodthirsty
Teddy. Their traits would balance each other and make
one good average man between them.
The old battleship Oretron, famous
for its fast trip around Cape Horn dur
ing the Spanish-American war in 1N08
has been given to the naval militia of
California for use. At least 100 regu
larly enlisted sailors and several offi
cers will be stationed aboard tho ves
sel to aid in the instruction of the mil
itiamen. This is the largest fighting
shin that, in the United States, has ev
er been given over to a militia. Not
many years ago the vessel wa over
hauled thoroughly and armed with big
nnd modern guns. She has several 13
inch guns in her turrets. The Oregon'
will be taken to sea during tho sum
mer cruises of the militiamen.

Pendleton Tribune: One of the big
gest jnckrnhhit drives of the season
toolt place yesterday down in the snge
brush country, where nbout 15 Indians
from tho Tntuilla mission killed 482
rabbits for tiie New Years dinner there
today. The remarkable thing nbout the
drive is that every one of these rab
bits was killed with a rifle. The In
dians do not take kindly to the shot
gun for hunting purposes, but they are
remarkable shots with a rifle. They
jerked them as fast as killed, anil

Eugene Guard: Lane county hog
raisers have netted approximately $!,-;

co-operative system of marketing by!

cording to ('. J. Hunt, who has had!
charge of the shipments. A carload of
100 hogs shipped from Eugene to t.ie

Prosecuting Attorney Lundin, of King county, Wash
ington, according to the dispatches, is going the prohibi
tion law considerable better. It seems a drink has been
on sale in Seattle since the state went dry, which does not
contain a trace of alcohol. Notwithstanding this Mr.
Lundin forbids its being sold and says he will prosecute
all who sell it, as it is "a malt liquor." Lundin seems to
have about the same ideas about the law as the Neapoli
tans who were forbidden "to shed blood on the streets,"
and who arrested a doctor for bleeding a man who had
fallen in a fit on the street. After a long trial the judge
held the law did not apply to the act. Lundin should
take a few lessons from Naples.
The dispatches announce that Cleveland, Detroit and
most other large cities have the grip. This is a case of
getting the cart before the horse. The fact is the grip
has those cities and a good many more.
