A MODERN CAVE OF ADULLAM
New York has had some remarkable stunts lately
among them the preparedness parade in which it is
claimed some 150,000 took part. This however was not
a marker to what she is having just now with 22,000
educators gathered inside her doors. These are not
teachers mind you, but the real thing educators. It is
a motley gang and represents every fad, and fancy the
erudite and idle can imagine.
The re is an old saying that it takes nine tailors to
make a man. If the educational crank is to have full and
uninterrupted swing the day is not far distant when it
will take nine educators to make the average boy or girl
over into an encyclopoedia of utterly useless odds and
ends, and at the same time among them, make the nearly
wind-broken and badly spavined taxpayer shy at a school
house and kick over the traces and run away at the men
tion of education.
Among the selection of faddists now in New ork are
all kinds and characters of the breed, each with his or her
pet hobby which is groomed for the occasion and ready
to be ridden by its owner at every opportunity. Major
General Leonard Wood is there and strongly advocating
military training in the schools of the country, both
public and private. Other uplifters want instead manual
training and lots of it. Some long haired samples insist
that music is the main object in life, the only thing that
will make existence in this vale, of trusts, bearable.
Other short haired individuals assert that athletics alone
should be the goal for which the young should strive.
They think a bull pup and a pair of boxing gloves superior
to Beethoven's sonata as soul thrillers.
The square rigged feminine thinks girls should be edu
cated to be manly, learn all the tricks of business and
incidentally get the ballot and manage the politics of the
country. They advocate educating the mind feminine
away from ribbons, laces, gewgaws and tatting; they
want less silk hose and more clothes.
The modest little school ma'am from Oskosh is shocked
by what she sees, and she sees much in the way of an
atomical exhibits, due to the prevailing styles of gowns
which are decollete top and bottom. They think a "back
to the farm and old days" will cure this. A Kansas wo
man is leading a fight for a political pot pourri, "modesty
and suffrage." Ella Flagg Young, armed with court de
cisions and fluent tongue is shouting for educators' rights,
and battling for teachers organizing a union and joining
the American Federation of Labor. Incidentally she
made some allusions to the corruption of politics and
politicians, yet advised her hearers to become of that
class. Dr. Anna Shaw is there telling everybody just
what to do to make the wicked republicans and still more
wicked democrats come through and have congress pass
a bill providing for amending the constitution and giving
women the ballot. Several women are urging and direct
ing the fight for aiding the American Federation of
Labor, though what it wants with the aid of this choice
gathering of adullamites is not made clear. Dr. Woods
Hutchinson, who is a sort of literary sarcomatous tumor,
and solution of continuity for startling ideas, praised the
dog tent and insisted the military life was all that would
ever give young Americans the e pluribus unum and Erin
go bragh necessary to their physical development.
And so it went through the grand selection of shining
educational lights and moral uplifters. Justvhat the
public schools have to do with all these things is past all
finding out, but the educators evidently want all of them
taught, practiced or done something with in the school
rooms or the country. They insist that the human being
must be caught young so all these things can be crowded
or hammered into his or her cranium so they will stick.
After three days session not once has spelling, writing or
arithmetic been mentioned, which shows how far afield
the educator is from the practical teacher. They will
probably do one sensible thing, just one. They will some
time adjourn.
It seems that among other money Mrs. Hetty Green
had left her was the sum of $1,500,000 given her for life
by a cousin, but which at her death was to revert to the
heirs of the cousin's father, Gideon Howland. Gideon was
some father in Israel so to speak, having a family of
thirteen children, each of whom took after the old man
as family raisers, and also sprouted large families. This
trait seemed to be hxed and the result is that there are
supposed to be now some 17,000 lineal heirs and
descendants of the original Gideon, . among whom this
$1,500,000 is to be divided. This on a square divide would
give each about $90. As there are sure to be innumerable
law suits it is fair to presume that the original Howland
fortune will be divided pretty thoroughly among the east
ern lawyers. This money was left to the cousin in 182:3,
but just when the cousin passed it over to Hetty is not
known. However if it was turned over to her by 18;0,
and had drawn interest since, it would require all of
Hetty s vast fortune to pay it and there would be a de
ficiency judgment taken for the balance, for it would not
pay fifty cents on the dollar. This again suggests the
question was Hetty Green a financier?
Naturally most of us think the Mexicans very foolish
to make the remarks they do about the Americans, and
we get sore at the things the Mexican papers print about
us. Are we any better than the Mexicans? Does not
everyone of the big papers that has a cartoonist, daily
show the Mexican up as a murderer and thug? Are we
at all chary of our remarks about Carranza and his fel
low leaders? Do the Mexicans say anything meaner
about us than we do about them? Recent stories from
Mexico show that there are good fellows among them
just as there are among other nationalities. The negro
trooper who escaped and was found last, tells of a Mex
ican feeding and taking care of him and an American
miner tells a similar story of being taken care of and
hidden by a Mexican rancher who afterward gave him a
lift in his auto toward the border.
Those boys who Tuesday took a Ford car belonging
to F. H. Barker, a Polk county farmer, and after that did
a regular wild west show stunt, robbing farm houses and
swiping another car after putting that taken from Mr.
Barker out of commission, were picked up at Roseburg
yesterday afternoon and can now indulge in a little re
flection on the high old time they had, as well as what
it is liable to cost them. It is a lesson they will remember,
perhaps, and shows that the law of compensations is an
unfailing one. The pendulum that swings in one direc
the highways in an auto is compensated hy. the long rest
tion swings just as far in the other, and'the fast gait on
behind the bars; and the hilarity of the wilderness of the
outside is counterbalanced by the monotony of the tame
ness of the inside of the county jail. -
A French financier has figured it out that if the Euro
pean war lasts another year it will cost a grand total of
$100,000,000,000. At five per cent the jnterest on this
would be $5,000,000,000, a year, or a sum equal to one half
the value of the total annual crops of the United States.
In other words the farmers of this country could just pay
the interest with half their crops yearly. It would take
all the crops of all kinds grown in the United States for
ten years to pay the debt without interest, and with five
per cent interest added it would take a1out sixteen
years.
In the Orpet trial yesterday one of the attorneys
asked an alienist witness a hypothetical question which
contained more than two thousand words. The witness
after listening for half an hour, wrinkled his forehead
when the questioner stopped, and with a vacuous look
answered "Yes." If he knew what he was answering it
is ten to one he knew more than the fellow who asked the
question.
Among the petitions filed yesterday to get measures
onto the ballot for the November election was one by
Dan Kellaher, former state senator from Multnomah
county, in behalf of the Independent Retailers Associa
tion, of Portland, to place on the ballot a measure abolish
ing the Sunday closing law. It contained 24,500 names.

brings his cowjuice in a can, to say that
we'd feel fine as silk, if we would only cut
out milk. We can't expect the butcher gent

CUT TOPS OFF TREES
Top Is Removed In This Way
With Little Danger
to Loggers
Portland, July 7. Tliut dynamite
is used to remove the tops from trees
selected as spar trpes for the skyline
loaning rig of the Manley-Moore Lum
ber company camp ut Fairfax, Wash.,
is reported by forest officer L. A.
Nelson, who has just returned from a
visit to this camp.
Instead of using n saw or an axe,
the hcadrigger Hits on a pair or long
spurred climbing irons mid ascends the
tree to a height of from 100 to l."0 feet
He carries with iiim several sticks of
dynamite tied together, end to end,
like a string of sausages. This he puts
around the tree trunk, which is usu
ally about 1- inches in diameter at
the point where he wishes to tako off
the top, tying the powder securely in
place. A detonating cap, to which' a
long piece of fuse is attached, is in
serted in one of the sticks of dynamite
Tiie rigger descends twenty feet or
so, lights the fuse and makes his way
to a sufe plnce on the ground some dis
tance from the tree. After a few min
utes the powder explodes, the tree top
leaps into the air und eomes crashing
down. The limbs are removed from
the trunk before the to( is shot out,
so that after the explosion the stub is
ready for attaching tho blocks of tiie
overhead logging system.
This method of getting the tops off.
which is only experimental at present,
is expected to prove safer and more
economical than sawing or chopping
off the top, which makes it necessary
for the fuller to remain in the tree
until the top has fallen.
The llanley-Moore Lumber company
which is testing this method, has n
five-year contract with the forest ser
vice and is cutting government timber
on the Rainier national forest at nn
elevation of 4.000 feet above sea level
the highest elevation of any logging
works operating in western Washing
ton. Two years ago attention was
called to their operations when they
installed an inclined railway over a
mile long, and so arranged that a car
load of logs coming ilown hauls an
empty ear up. On the maximum grade
of this incline the track rises ,17 feet
in goin" forward 100. It has been a
successful operation for two years.
A Famous Physician's
Wonderful Discovery
After a series of careful experiment
and tests at the Invalid's Hotel and
Surgical Institute, Buffalo, N. Y., cov
ering many years Dr. Pierce, the medi
cal director of that hospital made an
nouncement that he could prove that a
medicine which he called "ANURIC"
was the best uric acid solvent now to
be had. As a remedy for those easily
recognized symptoms ox inflammation
as scalding urine, backache and fre
quent urination, as well as sediment in
the urine, or if uric acid in the blood
has caused rheumatism, lumbago, sci
atica, grout, it is simply wonderful how
quickly "Anuric" acts; causing the
pains and stiffness rapidly to disappear.
Swollen hands, ankles, 'feet are due to
a dropsical condition, often caused by
disordered kidneys. Naturally when the
kidneys are deranged the blood is filled
with poisonous waste matter, which,
settles in the feet, ankles and wrists;
or under the eyes in baglike forma
tions. It is just as necessary to keep the
kidneys acting properly as to keep the
bow- Is active.
The vory best possible way to take
! care of yourself is to take a glass of hot
I water before meals and an "Amine"
j tablet. In this way it is readily dis
1 solved with the food, picked up by the
blood and finally reaches the kidneys,
where it has a tonic effect in rebuilding
those organs.
