Smuggling In Exciting Film1
The nation-wide crusade against tliej
traffic in habit-forming drugs has re-
suited in the production of a photoplay j
us one of the means to give publicity to
1he campaign. When the Hnrrison-Iiloch j
law was passed in MO!), 'opium was Ije- j
jng imported under a tariff of $li per:
pound to the extent of two million do-'
" lars annually. The Federal law pro-!
liibitcd further importation and the ac-1
tiveness of opium smugglers which im-!
mediately began, -will lie set forth in I
tho photoplay "Hop, the Devil's Brew," j
which will be exhibited at Bligli
theatre on Sunday and Monday. In
fighting the opium smugglers, brave
men are constantly risking their lives.
Kvery vessel arriving in a Pacific Coast
port is searched for contraband. Seiz
ures are frequently made and every'tin
of opium destroyed and though every
offense carries heavy penalties, tho
high price that opium brings in Amer
ican Chinatowns, proves an incentive
for desperate bands to ply their calling.
This battle of wits between Government
officials and opium smugglers lias re
sulted in a photoplay of great interest,
replete with tlnillng incidents and of
great entertainment value.

Railroad Will Make
Stayton Big Town
As each day goes by- the fact lie
comes more evident that Stayton is to
have that long looked for railroad this
summer. There is every reason why
one should believe this. The people in
charge are making no fuss. They
were neither preceded by a brass band
nor a fluent gentleman with un exten
sive vocabulary; but have come in here
quietly, made the survey, -corrected it
uii, paid their bills, attended to their
jown business, and kept still.
Of course it is a b ird job to induce
jtlie ordinary Staytonite to believe in a
railroad. He has been folded so lnany
I times with the erv of "Wolf, Wolf"
that it is no wonder he is asleep at the
switch when the real thing arrives.
It would be better, much better to
have a little faith, not only in other
people, but in Stayton. After all, the
entire superstructure of civilization is
built on imagination a'ld faitii. Noth
ing is in tiie concrete i'orm in the be
ginning, it must be in the abstract.
Kven railroads must be built on paper
Transportation is the same thing to a
'community as the circulation of the
I blood is to an individual. Without
transportation the community stagnates
land becomes dull and common place.
Let every person in Stayton believe
and work for outside eoniiiiuniciition by
jiail and it will be but a short time nil-
til it will be accomplished,
j -Men must believe in the future of a
i place in order to make it grow. Stay
! ton, with a railroad, Ins every inssi
jbility to make a city of decent size. We
'lack nothing; fertile hind, water, power,
! climate, fruit, location, are all ours.
All that is needed is to reach out with
!the magic wand of faith and touch .ill
i these into life and activity. Boost for

(nve back my twentieth spring!
I'd rather laugh, a bright-haired boy,
Than reign, a gray-beard king.
Off with the. spoils of wrinkled ngcl
Away with Learning's crown!
Tear out life's Wisdom-written page,
And dash it's trophies down!
One moment let my life-blood stream
From boyhood's font of flame!
Give 1110 one giddy, reeling dream
Of life and love and fame!
My listening angel heard the prayer,
And, calmly smiling said,
"If I but touch thy silver hair.
Thy hasty wish lias sped.
"But is there nothing in thy track
To bid thee fondly stay,
While the swift seasons hurry buck
To find the wished-for day!"
"Ah, truest soul of womankind
Without then what were life?
One bliss I cannot leave behind:
"1 'II take my precious wife. 1 '
The angel took the supphiro pen
And wrote in rainbow dew, j
"The ninn would be a boy tigjin i
And be a husband too!'' j
"And is there nothing yet unsaid,
Before the change appears!
Remember, all their gifts have fled I
With thoso dissolving years. j
"Wiry, yes," for memory would recall!
My found paternal joys; I
"I could not bear to leave them-all
I'll take my girl and boys." ;
Tho smiling angel dropped his pen
"Why, this will never do, j
Tiie man would be a boy again, ,
And be a father, too! " i
And I l inglied my laughter woke
The household with its noise
And wrote my dream, when morning
To please the grav-liaired bovs.
