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 first. 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 Stavton. Stavton Mail. ied by Mr. and Mrs. L. K.
