MAKING THE GOVERNOR TT"
Professor J. W. Mathews, an "efficiency expert," has
been employed by the consolidation commission appointed
by Governor Withycombe last year, to assist it in iorm

and commissions now managing the state's affairs. He
has arrived in Portland and will presumably take up the
work shortly. He was one of those who drafted the plan
for the state government for Illinois. There is an abund
ance of boards and 'commissions, and the reduction in
number may help some, but it may well be doubted if the
people of the state want a new system of government pro
vided for them at this time, especially one that takes the
selection of any of the present elective officers from them
and turns their selection over to the governor. It is un
doubtedly true that the people make a mistake occasion
ally in the selecting of state officers, and this is bad
enough, but suppose they should make a mistake in the
choice of a governor and he should at the same time have
the opportunity to multiply that mistake many times m
the selection of a large portion of the minor officials who
have charge of the state's business? Many of our repub
lican friends are insisting that we should not swap
horses while crossing a stream," and this applies with at
least as much force to the changing of our form of state
government as to changing the state officers. However,
at will do no harm other than to deplete the state treas
ury a trifle to have the "efficiency expert," show us his
plans. As the old saying is we may be led to water but
no one can make us drink, or as the small boy put it when
his grandmother locked him up in the hen house: "She
can lock me up with the chickens, but she can't make me
lay an egg."
Harley 0. White has been one of the hardest working
and most efficient members the school board has ever had.
He is a candidate for re-election against his own wishes
because the district needs his services. Chauncey Bishop
has also been drafted and only consented to run because
the people most interested in good schools for Salem j
urged him to take a place on the board. Both these men
should he elected next Monday.
p Rippling Rhymes I
by Walt Mason
I hired Pete Dill to slay a cat whose ways
were full of error; it howled weird songs
around my flat, and made the night a ter
ror. I said, "exterminate the brute, and
here's a silver quarter; I care not if you
drown or shoot, or bray him in a mortar."
Next night the cat was still on deck, with
songs of home and mother; it made my
nerves so dire a wreck, I knew not which
from t other. I hunted up old Peter Dill,
and said, "You are a quitter! Why don't
vou humo vourself and ki that chean. mis-
waoj guided critter?" "I cannot quite make up
my mind," he said, "how best to do it; I do
not want to go it blind, and botch the job, beshrew it!
To drown her where the billows roar I thought I would
endeavor; but then perchance she'd swim ashore, and be
as bad as ever: I thought I'd shoot her with a gun, but
saw that was improper; the noise would startle every one,
and maybe bring a copper. I thought I'd hang her to a
tree, but that seems rather brutal; the plans which have
occurred to me, so far, seem punk and futile." "It is no
wonder, Peter Dill," I said, "that you are busted; the way
you yaw and back and fill, would make a man disgusted.
Your pants are patched, before, behind, your coat is all
in tatters, because you can't make up your mind upon
the smallest matters. I'll give the job to William Wax,
I'll pay him half a dollar, and he will take the nearest ax,
and croak that midnight squaller."

"Oh. George, you are sure you aren't
badly hurt?" I said as soon as I closed
the door after Mrs. Collins. "Isn't
there something 1 can do for yonf "
"Yes, come hero and give me a kiss"
I kissed him fondly, running my fin

u!fe liberties with him .
"So you were worried! "
"Worried! I was almost wild with
anxiety. I went down to tho station,
but when I saw that crowd, all eaten

For half an hour we talked. The most
satisfying talk wo ewr had had to
gether; from my point of view. 1 told
.him how I cared for him; how I resent
ed the implication that I did not. And
Hint I wanted to please him in every
thing. I told him all this without in
tiny way belittling myself. A while back
I should have talked very differently,
should have begged him to love me, and
probably wept a little. As I left him to
dross for our teto a tote dinner I said
"I ow,9 Mrs. Sexton a lot," and I
did. It was because of my talk with
her that I was able to keep calm and
dignified in my heart to heart conversa

June 14. A crack division of the Prus

under orders to prevent the Americans
from "obtaining a serious success," it
was learned today.
This division took part in the Aisae
offensive, which started May 27, los
ing nearly fifty per cent of its effect-
ives. Its companies, which originally
numbered 90 men, then averaged 45
to 50 men. This was its condition when
it was called to relievo a still more
shattered division northwest of Chateau-Thierry.
Batween June 7 and 9 the Prussian
guard division was so badly mauled in
clashes with tho Americans and French
that it was finally sent to the rear,
despite th,a urgent need of enemy re-
