The story of Clemenceau is the story of a fighter as
well as a clever diplomat. He is the briginal old French
political warhorse, and the clash of combat is pleasant to
his ear.
Nnw. at the ape of 77. he is fighting as bravely and
gloriously for the rights of the French people as though
he were a young soiaier entering nis nrsi uaiue.
Like all strong inen, he made fast friends and bit
ter enemies.
Forty-eight years ago, at the close of the Franco
Prussian war, he was sent to Metz as one of the French
delegates for concluding the treaty with Germany. When
the cession of Alsace-Lorraine was proposed he roared
with indignation and refused to sign the treaty, declar
ing: "Men cannot be sold as slaves in Africa, nor sold as
serfs in Russia, nor delivered like cattle into the hands
of Bismarck." In the face of disapproval and personal
risk he stuck to his point, though he lost it, and with it
much of his prestige.
He has lived to see everything he protested returned
to France, and returned on exactly the same ground that
he was laughed out of power for maintaining the right
of a people to self determination. ,
He has put heart and soul into his leadership in this
war. He has visited the front trenches in the cold and
enow, and worked with private soldiers in the ranks. He
has kept in daily touch with the army heads. He has
cheered and roused the people of France when all their
hope had fled. Now, as presiding officer of the peace
conference, he is reaping the reward of victory for France
and the world.

Scandinavian descent, he is an American of Americans,
as his conduct as Seattle's mayor during an emergency
proves unquestionably. And while we have Ole for the
text we want to take the occasion to say that Scandin
avian immigrants to this country, Sweedes, Norwegians
and Danes, seldom fail to make good citizens. They learn
our language in a hurry,-gct to work without delay, go
into politics and the first thing we know are running the
country, and doing it a whole lot better than we native
born Americans could do it ourselves. Ole Hanson is a
pretty fair sample of his race.
The legislators have gone to Corvallis to inspect the
0. A. C. But we'll bet Kerr's salary the biggest single
thing over there will never even get the once over.
Here is a telegram that the "People's Party", rep
resenting the German Junkers, sent to the former kaiser,
on his sixtieth birthday:
"We gratefully 'appreciate the work which your
majesty has done for the German Empire and the German
people during more than thirty years. We heartily wish
your majesty peace for the rest of your life and beg to
assure you that millions of Germans who will live with us
under new conditions and a new basis of state and life,
reverence the monarchist idea and will repel every un
worthy estrangement from the high ideal of German kais
erdom and Prussian kingship."
Who would have supposed, in this unsophisticated
land, that there remained anybody in the world capable
still of reverencing the Hohenzollern idea and speaking
seriously of "the high ideal of German kaiserdomr
These are the Teutonic Bourbons. They "learn notn
ing and forget nothing." Fortunately for Germany, they
are now powerless to do anything but talk, and when they
do that they make such fools of themselves that their ut
terances are worthless even for propaganda purposes.
One by one the consolidationn bills are being killed in
the legislature. About the end of the session, however, a
resolution will be passed authorizing the appointment of
a committee to investigate the feasibility of consolidating
the various state commissions, and report two years
hence. . That has been the regular program for several
sessions past and not a single state commission has
been abolished and there has been no consolidation of
those departments which are more ornamental than use
ful and expensive besides.

Men skimp and save until the grave has got them in
its keeping; they plant and sow in toil and wee for heirs'
and lawyers' reaping. "I can't afford to step aboard a
ship and visit Parry," says Farmer Jones, who has more
bones than any man could carry. "I'd like to see the
world," says he, "I'd like full well to travel; but saving
dimes for wintry times just keeps me scratching gravel."
Some day he dies, worn out he lies, by hard work beaten
under; and lawyers stand on every hand and look around
for plunder. He's left his wad and gone abroad across the
silent waters; and every bone he had is blown by spend
thrift sons and daughters. For bonds and stocks and dust
and rocks a dead man has no vision; no passing soul can
take a roll into the fields Elysian. We live but once and
he's a dunce who gets no fun from living,- who always
saves and never craves the joy of spending, giving. The
wise man salts in fireproof vaults a portion of his treas
ure, then takes the rest and goes a-quest for eightteen
lands of pleasure. He puts a plunk in his tin trunk, then
takes another dollar and paints the town a reddish brown
and makes the peelers holler.

High school had been all possible for

His aunt told mother in confidence

T0 the Editor:
Dairymen are very much concerned
over the freakish market conditions
that recently caused a drop of 20 cents
ic the price of butterfat in a week.
The thing that disturbs tho farmer's
peace of mind is the fact that feed
cost has not been reduced. Feed is tho
highest in history and it will be two'
months before relief can be had.
Turning to the probable causes that
lead to such an unprecedented drop in
tho market, we are reminded of tho
roniark made by a Washington county
dairyman recently when he said: "The
tail wags tho dog, and it is making
ike doe sick. Why don't the dog buck
up end make the tail wagt"
He stated the case exactly. This
wholo dairy industry has been wagged
about by Hie tail end. Over in Tilla
mook county where the dairymen have
a, perfect mnrkoting organization with
in themselves tne reverse is true, iuere
the dog wags the tail as tho dog creator
intended that lie should. Nothing illus
trates this better than tho mere fact
that tho price of Tillamook cheese rais-
d two cents during the stuno period
that butterfat in Portland dropped 20
"Consumers are. naturally glad to see
tho orico of something drop. Buttor
has taken tho lead and if every other
commodity followed in equal proportion
there could be little complaint. Bueli,
however, is not the case. From Deeem

tho reader can imamo how painful it;
must be to tho dairymen to be wagged
about by the toil end of the industry,
with the above results.
To produce at such a loss as the
,dairymen are now facing is Ruinous. No
nther Industry could absorD sucn loss,
The dairyman absorbs it by working
longer hours, by working every member
of the family long nours wunout com
pensation, and by disregarding Interest
on investment.
Belief is possible here and elsewhere
as it was mado possible in Tillamook
by organization. The Oregon Dairymen
Leairue provides such an organization.
It has already produced results in the
market milk situation. Tne macainery
is in motion and its remains for the
dairymen to demonstrate their ability

how that Neil was getting a hundred
dollnrs B- week in the offiee, and that
he was expecting a raiso.
A hundred dollars seemed a fortune
to me. It didn't need mother's sur
prised ext'lumntion to make me fairly
gasp. Why, no young man in Hunting
ton ever earned as much as that. I
doubted if more than two or three of
the men ia town had more than that to
spend men with families. It gave Neil
an added interest in my eyes. Not that
I consciously likod him any better be

seemed to me. But it proved his ability-Neil

straight, without n ounce of super
fluous flesh, although no one could
speak of him as "thin." Ho had dark
brown hair and laughing eye. He
