An inscrutable Wisdom has removed

bore himself before all men in a firm
and steadfast determination to fall)
perform his tasks with fidelity.
He has answered the Grand Sum
mons and appeared before the high
est tribunal where bis deeds will be
judged with righteous impartiality:
let us hope he has beard tbe com

We his brethren mourn his loss

We offer to his bereaved family
our warmest sympathy and' condole

A devoted husband and an affec

a counsellor on whom they leaned
with all confidence.
We commend them to the care of
our Heavenly Father who is able and
willing to be a guide and comforter
in the hour of tbeir sorrow and Who
Joeth all things for thev greatest

The community also will suffer a
great deprivation in the removal of
one who manifested such seal In

JOHN C. WARNER,
The Pasadena, California girla re-
i fuse to dance with the Japanese nav
al officers; the ball ia railed off; the
Japanese admiral u high dodgcjnn
sails away, and all Japan resents tbe
affront. The Pasadena girls wrre
within their rights and they have
the sympathy of California girls and
the girls of tbe I'nited Rates. But
what about this International Expo
sitjoo for mhioh California and the
Pacific coast is clamoring? The
support of that Exposition, if held at
San Francisco, must come from the-J
Orient. We all know the attitude of
San Francisco to the Orient. It very
recently brought ns to the verge of
war with Japan, and there are possi j
bilitles of serious trouble in an Inter
national Exposition held on the Pa
cific slope. The proper place f an
exposition to celebrate the completion
of the Panama Canal will be the Cap
itol of the United States. New Or
leans, San Francisco? "A plague on
both your boufes!"
The Secretary of War has just re
turned from tiie Philippines by way
of Asia and Europe, bringing the
somewhat trite information that our
Malayan acquisition from Spain is
not St for self government. Well,
what country ever waa fli? The
real diflerence is that the Philippines
are less fit, or least flt. It is a posi
tive benediction to some countries
like India, Egypt and the Philipp
pines to be governed by an Anglo-
Ssxou people. All children need
guidance and control, and these peo
pies are not only "half devil and
half child," but "devil, ostrich and
orphan child io one.'
The President's message la the
most voluminous ever printed, and is
generally considered to be an impor
tant and up to date document. Few
readers will peruse it from end to
end, and the epitomes furnished by
ihe press are excellent as time savers.
The President earnestly favors the
fortification of the Panama Canal,
and sorely if it Is worth digging, It
is worth defending. Without forti
fication it could be destroyed by a
few pounds of dynamite in a single
night To furtify the Canal is no
challenge to the peaoe of the world.

The Secretary of Agriculture has
now completed hia most optimistic of
reports. The value of the Agricul
tural products of the country in 1910
is estimated at $8,926,000,000, and
Mr. Wilson says that at no time In
the world's history has a country
equalled this record. It la quite
probable that those even who are
nw past middle age may see an ag
ricultural output equalling In value
one trillion of dollars.
The recommendation of the Beore
tary of Agriculture to eliminate
middle men and for cooperative or
ganizations of farmers and coopera
tive societies of consumers to get to
go I her, shortening the distance be
tween the farm and the dinner-table
is well worthy of consideration.
There is expectation that the re
cently elected Congress will ba less
