No chance to follow tip the trail And scrap a brave or two, I No place to take the warpath now, What is a boy to do? Not very many years ago A fellow had a chalice | To take a hand with Buffalo Bill And on the camp advance. Or lie could hide behind a bush. Lie low and mind l.is eye, i Anil with his ritle pick them oil As they went riding by. Those were the days a boy could be A hero bold and grand, And snatch the pretty heroine From some marauding hand. And when the cruel war was o'er, With honor for his side. He'd take Iter to his lititnhle home And she Would he his bride. There isn't any show for bovs Like once there used to lie; Il hardly pays litem any more When they run oil' to sea. j Why can't tiie Indians break out And iomul the war pole dance Or raid the settlements again And give a hoy it chance? /air y. Ii I Hlill . LITTLE THINGS. j A good-bye kiss is a little thing. With your hand on the door to go, j But it takes the venom out of the sting j Of a thoughtless word or a cruel lling That you made an hour ago. A kiss of greeting is sweet and rare, After the toil of the day. | But it smoothes the furrows out of the care. i And lines on the forehead you once called fair, j In the years that have flown away. : "fis a little thingto say, "You are kind I love you, my dear," each night; ; But it sends a thrill through the heart, I find. For love is tender, as love is blind. As we climb life's rugged height. We starve each other for love's carrcss We take hut do not give; It seems so easy some soul to bless, But we dole love grudgingly, less ami less, Till 'tis iiitter and hard to live, FACTS ABOUT JAPAN. Some Things Not Generally Known About This Assertive Race of Midgets. While Ktissia is about twice tin size of the United States, Japan is only uljout the size of the States of Missouri and Kansas combined. It is smaller titan Texas. Alaska would make three countries of the size of it. California and Japan are alsiut equal in size. In fact, there are no two political divisions of the earth any where which are so nearly alike in extent as California and Japan. Mis souri and Kansas together have a population of 4.5110.0'H1; Japan lias a population of over 40,(MHUKMI, and this, too. without counting the Ja panese population that lias settled in Korea, in the island of Formosa and the country adjacent. The idea pre vails that Japan is a Flowery King dom and that it is the garden spot of the world. That it has flowers in ! profusion is a fact, but only one acre out of eight is lit for cultivation. The country is too mountainous and the soil too rocky to permit of I icing an agricultural country. The people of the Western States upon their first view of Japan would never be led to believe that the coun try was fit for agriculture. However, no portion of the soil is neglected. Every foot of ground is made to yield every iota of substance that it is jkjs sible to extract from it. Were this not strictly adhered to, the majority of the people would starve, if de pendence were not placed on outside sources. The average farm is alwut the size of the ordinary town lot in America. The greatest food produc tion of the country is fish. It is thus that a country so small, compara tively, with a population so great, is compelled to seek new areas of ex tension upon which to cast its ever increasing population. The possrs sion of Korea, right at it side, in a large measure affords the relief de sired. In fact, for long periods In the past Japan has depended upon Korea for subsistence. Its food sup plies came largely from the soil of its nearby neighbor. In consequence of this siate of affairs the possession of Korea is vitally necessary to the ex istence of Japan. Congregation Saw the Joke. Former President Pat ton of Prince ton University recently delivered a sermon at Fifth Avenue Collegiate church on the subject of "Faith." He spoke of the blind faith of the client who puts himself at the mercy of a lawyer in preparing an action for trial, and of the confidence of the sick in intrusting themselves to the physician. " A ease of blind faith," said the clergyman. "Thedoctor writes out a prescription. Oftener than not you cannot read it and you don't know what it is. He tells you to take it. 4 Yours is not to reason why; yours but to do and die.' " Whether or not Dr. Patton meant it there was a distinct ripple through out the congregation. # # Men and Women. When a woman becomes flurried she feels for a fan. When a man be comes flurried he feels for a cigar. Women jump to conclusions and generally hit tlmm. Men reason things out logically and generally miss them. Some women can't pass a millinery store without looking in. Some men can't pass a saloon without going in. Women love adoration, approba tion, self-immolation on the part of others. So do the men. A woman always carries her purse in her hands so that other women will see it. A man carries his in his inside pockets, so that his wife won't see it. "Hew to the Line, Let the Chips Fall "Where they May." Y DKIPTWOOI) \A r U Y\ BY LUE F. VERNON [J Iv iV ;V N ,A. --N ■■"tlN.

From reports, people in search of housekeepino rooms in Seattle, would consider the task of finding the " needle in a hay-stack'' a soft snap. Kansas is a great State, (tn fame it has a call, It stave us Carrie's hatchet, And liev. Sheldon's stall. Some Seattle newspaper should otter a prize to tins one guessing when "Honest" John Uiplingcr will be brought back to the Queen City and placed on trial. William Hickman .Moore, Mayor of Seattle, doesn't like yellow journals The yellow journals don't like Moore either, so it's a stand-off.

The law of New York State forbids the use of the United States flag for advertising purposes. Violation of the law is punishable by a tine not exceeding #UMI. or by imprisonment for not more than thirty days, or both. Washington should enact such a law. If those people who visit the lead ing hotels and use letter heads and envelopes of such, to write to their friends East, would kindly request a stamp as well, the hotel clerk would see that their letters reached the ] tost office, thus saving the trouble of posting the same. Many people who leave Seattle in a Pullman car, declaring they will never visit the Queen City again, only remain away a short period of time, when they are so homesick for the best town on Earth—Seattle — that they will walk, or heat their way on train or boat, should occasion require, in order to live once again in its midst. The I'ist-liiiillii/riiii is recognized as the representative Republican newspaper *»f Washington. anil is considered so by the most eminent Republican ]iapers of the Kast. Un dur the conservative, dignified and briliiant editorship of Krastus Hrain erd, the I nt< I! tt/rnrrr has taken its plai'e union;' the foremost news pajtcrs in the United States. There are three large iK'ean steam ers plying between Vancouver, 11. C., and the Orient. Each has a crew of 350 to manage them. They are " Km press of China," "Km press of Japan" and the " Empress of India." These Ixiats are subsidized by the English government as naval re serves and can In; called on at any moment and in 24 hours can Ist used for transport purposes. Wonder if Harvey Scott, editor of the Oriyoiiitiii, doesn't at times sigh for the old office near the water-front in Portland, and think of the good old days that have passed away, when the click, click, click, of the type as they were placed in the stick by the largo force of comjtn, was the enchanting, seductive music, which spured him on to realize the dream of his life—success and fame? The New York Wnrlil does not favor the sending of battleships from the Atlantic to the Pacific Coast. Whether the World thinks it right or not, has no bearing on the matter to the jK'ople out here. The citizens of the Pacific Coast want the battle ships here, and can declare good reasons for so desiring. Besides, the New York Worhl should remem ber we have an ocean out here that will float the vessels as buoyantly as the Atlantic. Reports from many sources are to theeffcct that Japanese are (looking into the United States by the hun dreds. Unole Sam hud better heed this.t The Japs, since they defeated Russia, believe they can whip any na tion on Earth, and they won't hesi tate to try it, should they have the opportunity, One can say what he pleases, but don't forget for a mo ment that the " little yellow men" are ready to fight, to use an old phrase, " at the drop of the hat." * * ★ Maud is in the garden (Hitting pretty (lowers, Grace is in the hammock Dreaming by the hours, Kale is hv the brookside Where it's nice and cool, (Kate is rather jaded From the grind of school) Nell is in the parlor Just to snatch a nap, Eva's on the front porch Flirting with a chap, Fatinie's in the orchaid, May is in the grove, Mother's in the kitchen Wjth a red-hot stove. * * * Salem, Oregon, complains of the scarcity of girl house-servants. Cer tainly; why shouldn't girls who do housework lie scarce in that town? Society women, and others, expect a girl to cook, wash, can fruit, clean house, and keep it so; split wood, milk cows, in many instances, for the huge sum of $2.50 per week! Do OLYMPIA, WASHINGTON: FRIDAY MORNING, NOV. 1, 11107. yon blame young women for being scarce as household servants in Salem? If women who require house servants would pay a respectable and living wage, they would have no trouble in securing help. The trou ble is such employers want the girl to be a slave and work for wages that a Jap would turn his nose up at. * * * Dogs as Food in Germany. Man's best friend. ' the dog. is beginning to attain the dignity of figuring in statistics in Germany. In the kingdom of Saxony, last year, the slaughter-house registered the fate of 8,731 i dogs, which had gone to satisfy the tlesh-hunger of people too poor to atford pork, beef, or even horse-meat. In other parts of the empire the consumption of dogs was not proportionately as heavy, but was sutllcient to have a perceptible effect on the public peace of mind in dog days. If Germany will be pleased to continue the jxilicy of holding her people at the mercy of their landlords, through high duties 011 foreign meats, the empire will be in a fair way to be cleared of rats also. * * * The Violin and the Fiddle. When one says " fiddle"' there are always present those who say: "You must not say ' fiddle,' say ' violin.' " And do you know, while they can tell a clarinet from a drum, probably, these same self-appointed critics of musical instruments really do not know there is a difference between a " fiddle" and a " violin." Hut there is, and a vast one, at that. Let us investigate: The violin is the aristo crat, the patrician of musical instru ments. The fiddle is the boss. The violin is an instrument of harmony; the fiddle is the voice of melody. The violin is played chiefly by men with pied names and long hair, and women with specs. The fiddle is the instrument of the man who wears galluses, and underclothes only in the winter time. The master of the violin is a virtuoso; the master of the fiddle is merely a mighty good tid dler. The instruments are very much alike, from ear to tailpiece. The difference is in the players. The violin leads the orchestra at the thea ter; the fiddle leads the dance. I'aganini, Joachim and Wieniawski were violinists. The fellow who played at the country dances you used to attend, chewed tobacco, spit 011 the keys, called out the changes and stamped his foot with every bar of music he ground out by drawing the hairs of a horse across the IH>WOIS of a cat, was a fiddler. Arias are executed 011 the violin; tunes are played on the fiddle. Nocturnes are for the violin; the fiddle makes " shindig" music. The violin voices the music of Mcndclsshon, Hayden, Verdi and other foreigners; the lid tile sings "Old Zip Coon" or "Turkey in the Straw," " Irish Washwoman," " Money Musk." "Arkansaw Trav eii-r," and later productions, includ ing old or young tunes, song, hymn, lay, ballad, ditty or "piece," grave or gay, the melody, rythui, jingle or syncopation of which ap|teals to the untutored, but natural and suscepti ble ear, and that possesses the power to please and soothe, to arouse sym pathy and tenderness, or to cause men to laugh, weep or light. This is the 1 tower, the office of the tiddle. The violin is merely the fiddle's edu cated brother. The neighbors ad mire it for its learning and aristo cratic bearing, but they think it puts 011 too many airs, and when they want full they call for the fiddle —the instrument universal in the land of the plebeians. Lue F. Ykk.non. It lias been discovered of late that certain mosquitoes are the cause of yellow fever, malaria and other dis eases by injecting germs of disease into the human lxsly by their stings. Scientific men have made the mo squito a special study, and for this purpose have made models of mo squitoes enlarged 40(1,000 times. Thus we have now on exhibition in the Museum of Natural History in New York city mosquitoes represent ed in models each of which is four feet long. If v.e should stumble upon one of these mosquitoes, almost as large as a small cow, wo would start back with horror, wandering what sort of strange animal we had en countered. We would find it a terri fying creature armed with two saws and two lances about one foot long. It is with these saws and these lances reduced 40(1,(MM) times in size that the mosquito lxires into our noses, cheeks, necks and naked hands while we sleep. The mosquito is bad enough simply as a biter or stinger, but when he carries the germs of death into our Ixidios with his sting he becomes our foe in earnest, hence the attention given to this midnight serenader by the scientists. Dres* Made of Postage Stamps. At a Itall in Bermuda a wonderful dress was worn, in the making of which over 3b,000 stamps were used. Years were spent in collecting the stamps, and three weeks in the mak ing the dress which was of the finest muslin. The lady called upon her friends to help her, and the dress was covered with the stamps of all tui tions. They were not put on any how, but in an elaborate design. On the front of the bodice was an eagle made entirely of brown Colum bian stamps. Suspended from the bird's talons was a globe made of very old blue revenue stamps. On each side of the globe was an Ameri can flag, having stripes of red and blue stamps. On the Ixick of the bodice was a collection of foreign stamps in the form of a shield, in the center of which was a portrait of Sir George Summers, cut from old reve nue stamps. A picture hat covered with red and blue stamps was worn with this re markable dress. Mosquitoes Four Feet Long.

Of those who have greatness thrust upon them was the she-hear slain by Mr. Roosevelt in the canebrakes near Rear Lake, La., on Thursday after noon. Of a domestic, not to say re i tiring, disposition, she shrank from publicity. Home duties claimed her ! full attention, and she would gladly have avoided the spotlights that beat I with pitiless glare upon the centre of the stage. Hut it was not to be. Ruthlessly the mighty hunter invaded her pri- I vaey. and now the press of half the ; world is descanting upon her modesty | and her valor in defense of her vio i lated home. Kven such intimate de j tails as her complexion, her apparent ! ago—for woman-like she guarded that secret to the last and took it with her to the grave are bruited abroad for the delectation of eager j curiosity. As for President Roosevelt, con gratulations are his. May he be no ! less successful in gunning for the i bears in high finance who have stolen the stored honey of millions of hct*- like workers! Refreshed by such a successful vacationhe should return! to Washington tit to cope even with a ilarriman. REAL ESTATE TRANSFERS. C.

Don't indulge in personalities. They invariably return worse than they started out. Don't talk of the cost of things; it gives the rich a chance for lxiastful ness and may be embarrassing to the poor. Don't tell your personal interests' occupations, hopes or aspirations. Nolxxly wants to hear them, and you give your dignity a mortal stab. Don't discuss diseases or surgical o]M>rations. Without a natural i»ath ological taste or a trained nurse's ex perience, it is apt to disgust people. Don't discuss children; if you have any, the chances are you are boring those who have not. If you have none, you are sure te bo mortally wounding those who have. liut however many "don'ts" the manual may contain, the last and best and final one must be, smile bravely, and don't speak at all. How Nutmegs Are Cured. A writer who has explored New (luinea describes the nutmeg region. Upon a fine piece of table-land he came upon three houses erected in the very heart of the forest. These were used by the natives for drying nutmegs. The country was every where magnificent and the aroma of the spice laden air delicious. Nut meg and other equally valuable trees were everywhere growing in great profusion. The fruit of the nutmeg in appearance resembles a pear, and when ripe it opens and displays the nut covered with a beautiful red coat ing of mace. The nuts are then picked and taken to the houses, where they are husked and placed on shelves. They are then partially roasted over a slow fire, until all <>f the moisture is extracted, after which they are cooled and sent to market. Persistent Jack.

Every housewife knows that some flour will make good bread, while other flour will not. If you want to find out for yourself whether it is a good bread flour, test it in the follow ing way: In the first place, see that it is white, with a faint yellow tinge. Then take some of it up in your hand and press it. It will fall apart loosely, not in lumps. Rub some of it between your lingers.

Wiley, chief chemist and pure food expert of the Depart ment of Agriculture, has startled scientific Washington by announcing that it is a mistake to chew food. In discussing the results of the ex periments of a Yale professor, Dr. Wiley made the startling statement that to chew meat makes it indiges tible. " Flesh eating animals never chew their food," he said. "They lx>lt it. Man by chewing his meat makes it indigestible. The saliva mixed with the meat forms an alkaline. Before the meat can be digested that alka line must be neutralized." Kat plenty of good wholesome food. Sleep the sleep of innocence—that is eight hours of peaceful, restful sleep in every twenty-four hours. Take plenty of exercise. Do not make it too violent. Don't be afraid of a fight. Fight with all your energy when fighting, hut the moment the fight is over, forget it. The man who carries envy and hatred to his bed is bound to die young. This is the formula for the century life time laid down by Dr. Wiley. WHAT a consoler is a good woman! No presence but hers can so win a man from his sorrow, make placid tin? knit brow and wreathe the stern lips into a smile.

He that gives good advice builds with one hand; he that gives good counsel and example builds with lioth hands; but he that gives good ad monition and bad example builds with one hand and pulls down with the other. i WHOLE NUMBER 2.473. Making Good. . There is 110 way of making lusting friends like " Making Lood;" anil Doctor Pierce's medicines will exemplify this, ami their friends, after more than two decades of popularity, are numliered by the hundreifs of thousands. They have "made good" and they have not made drunkards. A good, honest, square-deal medicine of known composition D Dr. Pierce's (lolden Medical Discovery. It stili enjoys an im mense sale, while most of tlie prepara tions that have come into prominence in the earlier period of its popularity have "gone by the hoard " and are never more heard of. There must he some reason for this long-time popularity and that is to he found in its superior merits. When once given a fair trial for weak stomach, or for liver and hlood affections, its supe rior curative qualities are soon manifest; hence it lias survived and grown in pop ular favor, while scores of less meritorious articles have suddenly flashed into favor for a brief period and then been as soon forgotten. For a torpid liver with its attendant Indigestion, dyspepsia, headache, per haps dizziness, foul breath, nasty coated tongue, with hitter taste, loss of appetite, with distress after eating, nervousness and debility, nothing is so good as Dr. Pierce's llolden Medical Discovery. It's an honest, square-deal medicine with all Its ingredients printed on tiottle-wrapper —no secret, no hocus-pocus humbug, therefore don't uer.yg it substitute that the dealer may possibly make a little big ger profit. Insist ou your right to have what you call for. Don't buy Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescrip tion expecting it to prove a "cure-all." It Is only advised for woman's spi <~iiil ail ments. It makes weak women strong and sick women well. Less advertised than some preparations sold for like purposes, its sterling curative virtues still maintain its position in the front ranks, where it stood over two decades ago. As an in vigorating tonic and strengthening nerv ine it is iinequaled. It won't satisfy those who want "booze." for there is nut a drop of alcohol in it. Dr. Pierce's Pleasant Pellets, the orfyf nttl Little Liver Pills, although the first pill of their kind in the market, still lead, and when once tried are ever afterwards in favor. Easy to take as candy—one to three a dose. Much imitated but never equaled. ROBT.
