Justice Charles E. Hughes
and Senator Elihu Root
Both Endorsed Wilson
Ac York, Oct. 28. "The presidi-nl
is doing magnificently,"
This is the endorsement Clmrles E.
Hughes gave to 1'iesident Wilson to
wurd the end of the first six months
of the democratic administration. It
is vouched for by Dudley Field Ma
lum1, collector of the port of New
York who says Mr. Hughes made the
riMuiiik to him in Washington in dis
cussing the difficulties that confronted
the president.
This endorsement recalls n similar
one by ex Senator Klihu lioot made on
April S.1, lllll, before tin1 American
Society of International I-nw. The
following nccount of it is taken from
the Washington I'ost of April L'li, l!M4:
With tears streaming down his
cheeks and in a voice that shook with
emotion, Senator Klihu Knot st iod be
fore the guests at the annual 1m liquet
of the American Society of Interna
tional Law at tho Willard last night
and declared his loyalty to the presi
dent in everything he. might do in this
country's complications with Mexico.
Senator Hoot did not know then that
plan of mediation was under way,
through the good offices of Argentina,
Chili and Uracil. Apparently he had
not the slightest fukling that mediation
was about to intervene between this
country and dread war, though nt the
moment he was spenking a score of
newspaper men were vainly trying to
reach him to ask him if he was in
fa or of or opposed to mediation.
The Senator's first knowledge of the
move wns when the secretary of state
arose and, after n few preliminary re
marks, made public the interchange of
notes between the Department of State
and the South American countries.
The moment the trend of the media
tion notes wns understood there was a
storm of applause that continued sev
eral, minutes. It wns one of the most
dramatic scenes ever witnessed at a
gathering in the national capital. The
intense relief over the sudden change
in the' war situation wns seen in every
face. The secretary of war was the
last speaker, and his message of pence
was a complete surprise for though the
I'ost had announced m an extra ine
proposed plan of mediation, it was
after the banqueters had assembled,
and probably no one in the room
knew of it, outside of Secretary Bryan.
Senator lioot's pledge of loyalty to
President Wilson was dramatically
I have been tecling very unnnppy
during the last few- days over our af
fairs in Mexico," ho said. "It is not
in the. possibilities of human nature to
avoid differences of opinion as to
policy, and every one who has a duty
to perform must act according to the
dictates of his own iudmnent and own
conscience in the performance of thar
dutv. I wish the cup eould pass trom
At this point in his speech the Sen
ator's vioice Brew husky and tears
welled from his eyes.
'Hut the president has acted upon
his responsibility and his conscience,
lie is the head of this great Nation.
It is for tho Nation that he acts. No
matter how we may have differed in
our opinions of policy in the past, we
must all, every one of us, "stand loyally
by him. There must be no backward
look, but forward, for the success and
honor of our beloved country, which
we best serve in loynl support of the
chief magistrate upon whom rests the
responsibility of leadership.
'"Thank Hen1en, wo have a presi
dent in whose lofty chinictcr, in whose
sincerity of purpose?, in his genuine
desire to do what is right, wise,
patriotic, and what is best for the
country nnd humanity, we can all trust
absolutely. I trust iu it. 1 have dif
fered from him in questions of policy,
and doubtless shall differ from him
again. Men coming up with different
environments nnd associations nnd
ideas must differ; but I have con
fidence in the character and purpose
of (lie president of thj United St.ites.
He is my president, and I will stand
behind him in his leadership.''
Senator Itoot then asked all to stand
and drink the toast to the president,
which he said should be always the
first regular toast in nil American
meetings of thnt character.

Catarrhal Deafness Cannot Be Cured
by local applications, as they cannot
reach the diseased portion of the ear.
There is only one way to cure catarrhal
deafness, and that is by a constitutional
remedy. Catarrhal Deafness ia caused
by an inflamed condition of the mucous
lining of the Eustachian Tube. When
this tube is inflamed you have a rum
bling sound or imperfect hearing, and
when it ia entirely closed, Deafness is
the result. Unless the inflammation
can be reduced and this tube restored
to its normal condition, hearing will be
destroyed forever. Many eases of deaf
ness are caused by catarrh, which is an
inflamed condition of the mucous sur

Hens from the Oregon Agricultural
college won first priite as best layers
for September at both Storrs, Conn.,
and the Missouri contest. They also
stand near the head in the year's con
test, being second at Missouri at the
close of the first week in October, and
third at Storrs, October 1. The con
tests at both stations end Nov. I.
The Oregou hens are representatives
of the new breed developed nt the col
lge by Professor Dryden, and are known
as Oregons. Both pens are descendants
of the ;tt-egg hen, and show great uni
formity in laying qualities. In Sept
ember the pen at Stoors averaged 21.S
exgs, and at Missouri 21.2. The Missou
ri pen is slightly ahead in the entire
number of eggs laid to September 1.
having an average of S17 to their credit
This was better than any pen at Storrs
has done, although the records there are
considerably Higher than ever before.
For their performance at Missouri.
Professor Dryden has received a beau
tiful silver eup, which in the second
awarded for the beat monthly pen rec
ord. For the same month, September, a
first prize ribbon was received from
The Value of Knowledge.
R. G. Dykstra, principal of thcSnlem Heights School, has issued a pam
phlet for the benefit of his pupils that is worthy of much wider circula
tion than tho limits of his school district. What he says is trite for it
is the old idea that "Knowledge is Power." He puts it negitively, that
ignorance is slavery. His "credo" is as follows;
"Men say that slavery has been abolished. Is it a fact? True
negro slavery has been abolished. But what about the hundreds of
thousands of whito men in our country who are in a worse condition of
slavery than ever negro endured in the South
Can you imagine a worse slave than a man who is competent to do
nothing except common labor who sees that he is shut in by a wall
over which it seems impossible to climb, doomed year after year to
drudge away at the same thing, with absolutely no hope for the future f
You say this is a laud of the free that he is a free man. I say
that he is a slave, because he is absolutely under the control of some
one else of a master. His tools are not in his head but in his muscles.
'Where some one controls your tools he controls your oppertunity
to work When he controls your opportunity, he is your master. You
are his slave.
"Indeed, in many respects, the block slave of the past was far
better off than the white slave of today. True, the black man could
not quit, but he was fed, clothed and doctored during sickness, and
had little to worry about. The picture in "Uncle Tom's Cabin" Is
much overdrawn. Tho negro was far too valuable to bo mistreated
very much but you if you are a white slave, how much are you
worth to your master! How much will it cost him to replace Vou
when you get old and wear outt
"You say '1 am not a slave. I can quit.' Yes. vou can quit and
go to work iu tho same old treadmill again or starve, unless you have
some technical knowledge that will enable you to become your own
master. A man is free, and free only, when he controls his own oppor
tunity to work when he has somo special knowledge that eunbles him
to use his brain, instead of his muscles when he has educated and
trained not only his hands but his mind. Then and then only has he
the tools of a free man. Then ho has his foot on the ladder and is
competent to climb.
'This is an age of education along special lines. Never before in
the history of tho world has the demand for specialists been so great.
Every branch of business has been systematized and reduced to a
science, and a man must know his business and know it tboroughlv, in
order to successfully compete in these opening years of the twentieth
"Fate hangs no red lights at the cross roads of a man's career."
There are no sign boards along Life's highway, and the highroads to
success or failure are not labeled at the beginning. It is only when we
have reached mature years that we can look back and see just where
the cross roads were; just where the sign should have been placed
reading "This way to success." We can then begin to see just where
we took the wrong road; just where by not going the right way, we
can lose so much while had wo done thus or so we would have gained
honor, wealth and fame."
The reason why many men fail in life today is because of the fact
thnt they squandered their time and their manhood in their youth; they
would not go to school, or, if they had gone; they wasted their time,
skimmed through their text books, annoyed their clnss mates and
teachers, and impeded the progress of many faithful workers.
Let the boys and girls of our schools today wake up and heed this
fact lest some of them find themselves in the" race with the slaves in
the years to come. To waste and squander your time now, instead of
engaging in laborious study, menns that you will suffer defeat nnd dis
appointment when you get out into the world to grapple for a liveli
hood with mankind. Ask yourself the question: Am I going to be con
tented to plod along life's pathway with the great mass of humanity
in the line of least resistance, contented to do the little things and let
. the more ambitious class take the lead, or shall I place my shoulder to
the wheel and improve every spare moment, in as well as out of the .
school room, and thereby let the world know that I cannot be turned
aside from my settled purpose!
It is the young man or woman who confronts the world with an
unflinching heart, who cannot be discouraged by the scorn or laugh,
but masters every difficulty set before him, that mnkes his mark.'
Do not wait for age to tench you this dear lesson but grasp your
opportunity and fill your place in this grand old world or vou may some
day reflect back and say, "Well, I am still a slave." R. O. Dykstra.
