Sunday, May 14(h, is Mother's Day. "Each of us will find his way in
to his otru memory held and wandering in and out along the pathway of
the past, will gather forget-me-nots and heartsease for a hoquet. What
an aruiful of Bowers, with nectar sweet as that in the cups of rosebuds und
w.th fragrance outmatching Arabic gardens! You may go where-you like
along these roads of memory, into the orchard, or meadow, or the wood
land: but go stra ght to mother, whose ions; absence to some makes the
world a lonesome place after all the years. Let her speak your name once,
more, may you feel again the tender touch of her caress."
Mother's Pay was founded, nationally, bv Miss Anna Jarvls of Phila
delphia In 1914. at her requ- -it. the Hou. J Thomas Hetlin introduced in
fo •' e House of representatives a joint resolution to the effect that the
{'resident of t e United States should designate by annual proclamation t ie
second Sunday in May as Mot! er's Day and should request the display of
the American flag on all government buildings, homes and other suitable
places. At that time President Woodrow Wilson issued a proclamation on
May 9th. 1914. establishing this day fur the I'uited States.
There is no honor so riciilv deserved, and no tribute vhich should be
so willingly offered as t at which every son and daughter should accord to
the one whom we lovingly call, "The Best Mother Who Ever Lived."
THAT OTHER BKIIH.K.- -Last evening we went up to look at it. We look
ed .it it from above, then climbed do wn and looked at it from below. We
inspected the new o'er which ' as just been completed, and the old pier
wh . !i has been reinforced «. i. a heavy deep nosing where last years wa
ter dug underneath it. We noted t..e foresight displayed in the construc
tion of the pier, the levelling up of the bridge, aud the trussing which will
n.ake possible the taking out of two old bents, so I lie water can go Btralgllt
thru, w ■ i.it making a whirlpool under t le br dge. These two p.ers prac
tically insure for a!l future time the two trussed ections of the bridg'i.
Then we climbed up on the bridge. loo<i"d up tie river and then down
the river. Sometime wi.eu you are there do that. You will notice the
rid-e running about m dwav of the river bed. .Vow. the river flows to the
west of that rid-e If i igh w iter comes .tnd a tree or some other obstruc
tion deflects the river to ti e ea>t side tl town will be in great danger of
a Hoed. And if once the r.w-r breaks over, the people who decry spending
a little money on tiiat bridge, will ave a bill to s-ttle beside which the cost
cf the brid-e will bv trill.-, W at is now needed is consideration of
httildiug a third pier, th - one to he placed about the same distance from
the last one aud on the eas. s de of it. If placed at ail angle of about 30
degrees northeast a3 the brid ;e stands, it would catch the current of the
river and deflect it to the Rest where tne river is now running and thus
save the town the danger of a flood.
The bridge nuuld have gone out lust year if Mr Nye. Mr. Clark aud Mr.
Seemau had not paid the cost of brushing the bank so as to deflect the cur
rent. and reinforced the bridge Witlt heavy timbers. These same men guar
anteed to see that the labor »as furnisl ed far the construction of the new
pier if the town would furnish t e n.aterlal. The council voted $400 for
the material, and the council seldom spends that amount to as good ad
vantage. Mr. Nye has superintended 'he work and the job is creditable to
him and to the town. But it is unfair to compel these men to pay $400
out of their pockets for labor for th.s work. There are 15 automobiles in
the town which would be of almost no use except for that bridge, several
of the owners of these machines have recognized the value of the work
done and have agreed to heip out with t! e expense, others no doubt will do
so. others without machines have ex- pressed themselves as willing to con
tribute. This is the kind of sp rit that n-akes for progress and commun
ity improvement. Bear in mind that every improvement in the town re
jects credit upon you as a resident, and should receive your active and
helpful cooperation.
A lighted match, cigar or cigarette butt, carelessly thrown to one side

taousands of dollars to control.
Washington —Governor Scott C.
Bone reported in person to Commis
sioner Haynes successful admiu.stra
tion of the ISth amendment in Al
aska. turough concerted cooperation
between Director John B. Marshall, j
customs officials, t'.e courts, U. S. i
marshals and police authorities gen
"Public sentiment in Alaska is
splendid." said Governor Boue, "as
indicated by the American Legion
post at Ketchikan adopting a strong
resolution in favor of strict enforce
ment. and a similar resolution by
the Elks at Juneau. The smuggling
problem across the Canadian border,
with the helpful cooperation on the
part of British Columbia officials,
promises early solution."

So the trouble began: Hlldegard
and Benny, seated on a mossy green
bank, discussed cordially tlielr elders'
"What mother wants," said Ben, "Is
for me to marry a social success. I
haven't been blind to my sister

"Not while dud has his pile," Ben

over and kissed Hildegard.

"But we are engaged, aren't we?"
he asked In an Injured tone.
The gtrl considered. "Well, mavbe
we'll call It that." she agreed, "be- j

"In the meantime," the young man
hegau eagerly, "you will let me take

Hildah? And perhaps we might go
for our week ends, out to your Auut i
Glory's farm." I
Hildegard beamed admiringly.
"You do think of the nicest things."
she said. "Always I have told Aui't

Her young lover arose and gave her
his hand. I

"she might be in favor of the Idea if

Hildegard laughed. "You are the

Aunt Glory's farmhouse was a pic- |

Seattle, May 12.—Considered as
a subject fit tor tlie insane asylum
tiud held in the county Ju l for tweu
ty-four hours, Doctor Frank Boyle,
a former mayor of Valdez, was fin
ally identified by Deputy United
States Marshal E. D. Stevens. Boyle
was found wandering on the water
front Wednesday afternoon in a
dazed condition and was taken to
tl.e jail by the officials. There was
nothing on, hlrf person by which he
could bo identified. He had twen
ty-five cents on his person, yet It was
said he had plenty of money when
he left Valdez. Stevens believes that
Boyle had been drugged and robbed.
Washington, May 12.—The first
step toward the resumption of dip
lomatic relations between Chile and
Peru was taken today. The break
in their relations came' of the dis
pute in the Tucna-nrica section of
country twelve years ago.
The Peruvian ambassador, Senor
l'ezet, called on Senor Mathieu, the
Chilean ambassador, and the two
went together to the state depart
ment to have a conference with Sec
retary Hughes.
Genoa, May 12.—Lloyd George an
nounced in the conference today that
he had reached the decision where
he' would propose to the conference
a fen year military non-aggression
truce for all Europe, this truce to
be based on the existing frontiers
The Genoa conference praticipants
will be asked to become parties to
this pan-European pact, regardless
of the Russian muddle.
Chicago. May II.—Chicago civic
organizations are interested in the
recent indictment of the eight Chi
cago, labor leaden*. These organ
izations see In the Indictments and
the state's attorney's threat to use
against these men the law invoked
thirty-six years ago to obtain a con
viction of the Haymarket rioters
when so many policemen and civil
ians were killed, an attempt to deal
a Smashing blow to gang terrorism.
It was recently stated by C. W.
Hawkesworth, superintendent of the
government schools In Southeastern
Alaska, that he has received no In
formation from Mr. Lopp. chief of
the bureau of education, department
of Alaska, in regard to the removal
of the bureau headqu&rte'rs to Ju
neau. According to Mr. Hawkes
worth, the proposed change in head
quarters is rather improbable, as the
department of education's ship Box
er must necessarily outfit at Seattle
for Its trip Into the Arctic each sum
mer add as most of the department's
activities are in the far north, super
vision of the schools can be handled
most easily from Seattle.—Stroller's
Seattle, May 10.—The revenue
