South Carolina in the recent primaries turned down
Cole L. Blease who was in the race for the governorship.
At the same time Georgia, not profiting by the troubles
of its neighbor, nominated Hugh M. Dorsey for the gov
ernorship on the democratic ticket, which of course is
equivalent to the election. Mr. Dorsey made his fight on
his prosecution of Leo M. Frank, it being through his ef
forts that Frank was convicted. His deliberate exploit
ing racial and religious prejudices show he is not fit for
the place. If his administration is marked by the same
spirit that he manifested in the primary he may yet be
entitled to rank with and be a fit companion of Blease.

A Sacramento brokerage firm has sent out a circular
letter to growers and shippers calling attention to market
conditions. Among otner mings uie itun
fornia apples, potatoes and onions are practically cleaned !
up: from now on until spring we win maw ucivu,
your section." This, as the saying goes, "listens good.
At the same time a word of advice to growers may not be
out of place, and that is "whatever you bring to market
sort and grade it." Farmers complain that they get less
for their products than the market quotations call for.
No doubt this is generally true, and it is true because, the
product is not sorted and graded, and this work which
should be done by the grower is performed by the buyer,
who checks the cost up against the farmer and takes it
off the market price.
The orchardists in all the big fruit growing sections
Wade their fruit, and throw out all culls, worm injured
or ill shaped fruit. The farmer does not do this. He
brings fifty bushels of potatoes to market when he
should haul only forty, sorting the smaller and ill shaped
ones out for his pigs. He pays freight on the fifty
bushels, to get paid only for forty and he does not get full
pay for this amount because the commission house
charges him for sorting out the ten bushels, and for these
he gets nothing. By careful sorting he avoids this, pays
less freight and gets better prices.
Almost anybody would like to be ruined the way the
eight-hour day law has mined the railroads of this coun
try. Dividends are growing, business is so heavy that
coYs cannot be had to meet the demand of supplies an
--strangest of all-investors instead of being frightened
bv the passage of the Adamson bill, are falling over one
Mother in their anxiety to buy railroad stocks. It has
been a long time since there was such a boom in railroad
securities as that which is. sending prices sky-high i in
Wall Street at the present time. Once more the doleful
predictions of the railroad magnates have failed to
materialize. ,
The Billings case promises to be long drawn-out, due
largely to the American system of court Procedure.
Billings today asked for a new trial. If he gets it the
state till appeal to the supreme court the judg es
decision. If he does not get it, he will appeal. A strong
print is made by the defendant's counsel, who says the
urv was influenced, and was induced to find Billings
guilty by the understanding that the ath penaUy wou d
not be demanded. His attorney says: "If B lings
mi lty hanging is too good for him," and calls the whole
Proceedings farcial. He is correct in his first statement,
at least.
The street car strike in New York emphasises the fact
that green men cannot operate cars safely, any more
than thev can any other machinery they do not under
stand. Since the strike began accidents have be n of
daily occurrence. Yesterday there was a bad accident

The public schools at Reno, Nevada, have been closed;

veloped there recently. In New York yesterday but four
teen cases were reported and the schools reopened yes
terday, though more than 100.000 of the city s mi lion
school children, did not attend due to fear still prevalent
of the epidemic. The cases in Reno may be sporadic, but
heing on the direct line of travel from the east, it is
feared this is not the case.
It is Major General Pershing now. he heing promoted

The Oregonian commenting on Senator Stone's de
fense of the action of the administration and congress
settling the threatened labor strike among other things
says: "The Oregonian and other newspapers urged that
the government ascertain in what respect it (the arbitra
tion and mediation law) was unsatisfactory and that
congress amend the law to meet the objections, but noth
ing was done." Too bad wasn't it that the administration
did not heed the wise advice direct from the big tower I
How much trouble and how many mistakes the adminis
tration would have avoided had it thought to employ the
Oregonian editor to dictate its course.
A world's record for exports was set by the United
States in August with a total of $510,000,000, or $20,000,
000 dollars a day for each working day in the month.
This is $:15,000,000 more than the previous record made
last May. The exports for the year ending September
first totalled $4,756,000,000, or an amount equaling
$47.50 for every person in the United States. The total
gold imports during the year were $410,000,000 which is
the record. Your Uncle Samuel is sure doing some
Truth outdoes fiction every day. Saturday when a
Chicago-Elgin train struck an auto at Lombard station
near Chicago, J. G. Hemmingway moved by curiosity
stepped off the train to see what had happened, and when
a body was pulled from the wreckage he recognized it as
his brother. In fiction such a situation would have seemed
far fetched and impossible.
Yesterday's dispatches stated Venizelos, former
Greek premier, had gone to Salonika, and it was inti
mated that he is preparing to head a revolution in Greece
and undertake to depose King Constantine. Salonika is
the headquarters of the revolutionary movement, as well
as of the allies, and the wise ones intimate there is a
strong connection between the two facts. ''
The printers' supplies salesmen of New York are ad
vertising for the ugliest girl in the city to lead the grand
march of the guild next week. This is one case where
advertising may not get results, for the right girl would
surely hate to admit it. Besides when she got togged up
for the occasion she would no longer be the ugliest girl.

All summer long, to save the grass, I kept
the lawn well wetted down; the grass all
shriveled up, alas! and changed from green
to crav and brown. I worked nine hy
drants over time, and used three miles of
garden hose, for sprinklers squandered
many a dime, and still the grass turned up
its toes. "You grass is dead," the neigh
bors said; "you'll have to seed it down once
more; the life from all the roots is sped, the
lawn's as barren as a floor." And then one
nieht there came a rain, the kind we had
when I was young; J. Pluvius grew safe and sane, and
from the rain tank knocked the bung. And then the grass
once more showed life, the green came back, that long
was gone; and I and Susan Jane, my wife, turned joyous
handsprings on the lawn.

New Book at Library
"How toWrite a Movie"
Amateur scenario writers who have
an ambition to make a few extra hun
dred dollars pin money will find a book
at the public library that may lead
them on to the road of fortune. This
book that leads to a life on easy street
is entitled, "How to Write a Scenario
for H Motion 1'icture Play."
In attendiug picture shows oue often
wonders why the play has no plot, or
why such impossible things, so contrary,
to every day events are introduced.
Well, this book on scennrio writing
gives something of the technique. There
is a big market for good ideas mid even
if the whole plot cannot be used, the
contributor is paid for suggestions. At
least that is what a writer 111 the Satur
day Evening Post said. Two new books
on the subject were received tins week.
The complete list of new books for
the week is as follows:

Mrs. Carolina Curl was bom in Elze,
Hanover, Germany, Augunt 23, S;f!,
tind died very suddenly at her home on
Jsortu J-'iftli street, September IS, HUH,
at the age of 77 years aud 25 days. In
Mill she vaa married to Conrad Stein
grube, which union was blessed with
soveu children of which three have pre
ceded the mother to their eternal home.
In ISS1 she came with her family to this
country and first resided in Counels
ville, Pa. From there they moved to
Chicago, then to South Dakota. Her
first husband died iu ISSti. In 18112
she was married to John Hohf and iu
P.iUl they moved to Salem, Ore., where
three years later her second husband
died. Being not only she but also
Frederick Carl, whose companion had
beeu taken from his side through death,
felt very lonesome and both believed
they could make their older days more
pleasant for each other if they would
live together so they united in marriage
about four years ago and lived togeth
er very happily until death also broke
up this union. Shortly before Mother
Carl was married the secoud time she
was converted and joined the Methodist
church of which she was a highly re
spected aud faithful member as long as
I she lived. She loved God and the church.
and was, through word and deed, a light
in the world. She was a well read wo
man -with good judgment and many i
time she was a blessing and an encour
agement for her pastor. On Sunday,
September 17, she was very feeble but
managed to attend her church where
(after the sermon) she took communion;
with other communicants. That sam
afternoon she found it necessary to go
to bed nnd the following afternoon,
very suddenly, she went to her heaven
ly home. Mother Carl leaves, besides
, her bereaved husband, two brothers, aud
I two sisters in Germany, two sons and
two duughters. lli step-children, IS

Lane County Schools
Provided Playshed
A special report of school conditions
I in ljine county has just beeu made to;
; .1. A. Cliurvhill. state superintendent
I of public instruction, by E. .1. Moor.J
i county sujieriiitendeiit. Superintendent
j Moore says the year's work has been'
' very interesting ami profitable. Par- j
' ent teachers associations have Wen
j formed in almost every district where ;
it was possible to do so. In a great
1 ninny districts commodious playsheds
; have a tragic significance to the youug,
1 ing to Huild this year, costing from
j $. to 1"0 each. The money nccea-'
j sary to build these was either raised
by popular subscription or by enter-.
taiuments and most of the work was
done by patrons and the larger boys.
In more than one instance school gar
dens were planted aud the vegetables
aud flowers raised were sold at good
figures in the Kugene public market.
In l.T school houses of the country
cross lights have been eliminated and
the lighting greatly improved. The
Harden bubbling fountain pump has
been installed in a great many school
houses. The standardisation of rural
schools has been carried on with as
much interest as ev'r and 72 schools
have met the requirements established
by the state department of education.
Another feature of the year' work was
the anual county fair and rally which
was held in Eugene about the middle
of may.
For some time after Clifford left I
stood in the center of the floor trying
to adjust myself.. I saw that all my
reasoning had beeu at fault. That I
had made no progress, nor gained any
happiness for myself. I had no weapons
to fight this discouragement that Was
overwhelming me. I felt that 1 was be
imr mishml Aside: and that 1 no lonuer
had the power or the will to struggle.
.My Doily reiaxeu. i inougat i was go
ing to faint. Then the telephone rang.
It might be Clifford perhaps he had
fort.ntten sninethilliT. I milled ttivself
together. He might have thought of me
enough to want to say goou-ie again.
Is it hard to understand the work
inns of mv mind? I thiuk nil vounir
wives who arc not happily married, or
are neglected by the oue man they have
loved, will appreciate my feelings.
A Telephone Call.
"Hello! . . . Yes. this is Mrs.
Hammond . . . Oh. Mrs. Frauk
lyn! Oh. that will be lovely! Mr. Ham
mond has just goue an ay for a month
. - . this morning. . . . Yes. I
do expect to be lonely. . . . Cer
taiu I will come. . . . Y'es, thank
vou. . . . Good-bye."
Mr. Frauklyn was going to give a
straw-ride out to a popular road house
a super, and then ride home by moon
light! What sport! I was young. My
husband wa off having a good time I
tow would enjoy myself. Then I would
give a dinner party aud repay some of
jthe things that had been done for mc.
jSo, instead of sitting down and think
: ing about my unhappinos. I at onoe
j commenced to plan my party t!u pto
Jple I should invite, etc.
f When I told Mandy of my pirn the
j was delighted.
I "Dat's right, honey; have sum fulks
here, den yo' won't git so loneom "
j But. in spite of the anticipated straw
i ride, aad my diuner plans, the d ly umg
; ged. And more than once my lips tiera
; bled as I thought of the way CJifori
:had left me. and that he was witii jco
I pie I had never met. whom he wis un
! willing I should know. He niu.-t be
! ashamed of me. And somewhere back
m my mini! an idea took form, that
sometime he should be proud of me, that
I would become as much a woman of
the world, his world, with pois?. self
possession, knowledge of liretj. etc , as
Mrs. Horton, or the mvsterioai X,. O.
must be. It was a passing thought, but
one that was to recur very often.
A Letter From Home.
That afternoon I had letter f em
Mother, begging me ;o n.nnj tlum a
visit. My sisters were ;o ani s to K-e
Edith, who was just be,n'i:i ig to wa'k.
aud Mother herself said she couldn't
wait much louger, but that it was impos
sible for her to leave home.
I replied at once. I told her I would
come down in a few davs, and would
wire beforet I started. I mut stay for
the straw-ride aud my diuner party.
Then I would go. I called Maadv and
told her all about it, and, poor soul, she
cried, she was so happy.
"I shore am glad," she sobbed. "I
goui' tor see the ol' place once mo' be
to' I die."
"There, there. Mandv. vou will see
it many times. I hope!" But so im
pressionable was I that Mandv 's desire
augmented my own, and I was almost
ir i una not written that I would
start at on?e.
Edith needed a few things before go
ing away, and her wardrobe as well as
my own must be put iu perfect order.
It made the time pass- more swiftly
than I would have dreamed possible;
and when night came I was too tired to
worry about Clifford's neglect.
The third day after he left came the
straw-ride. It was a lovely night. The
Frauklyn came for me the very firat
one. then drove around tpwn and picked
up the rest.
I wonder what Clifford would ha
said could he have seen us sitting in tha
bottom of the big wagon drawn by four
horses. He would probably think it
childish, and laugh at me for enjoying
anything so silly.
