BANKS AND THE PANIC.
For every bank that failed an
other has been organized to take its
place, or the crippled institution has
been reorganized with new capital
and new management, which prom
ises to evade the pitfalls which led
to the recent panic and the wreck
ing of weakened institutions. This
shows that there is capital in plenty
and real need for such forms of in
vestment. The country was not
overstocked with banks any more
than it was overstocked with prod
ucts from its factories and mills.
This has been cited as the saving
clause in the survey of revival con
Business is moving on conserva

progress is gradually removing all
bad effects of the recent flurry, and
further, it is emphasizing the good

They well know, of course, that
Taft will carry on the policy of
President Roosevelt—and tha,t poli

know that if Mr. Bryan be success

doctrines of President Roosevelt—
although Bryan claims that Roose

Bryanism. Under such circum

usually controlled presidential elec

The Ideal Education.
The Methodist church was well
filled last evening when Dr. L. W.
Riley, president of the McMinnville
college, spoke on "The Ideal Educa
tion." The idea! education consid
ers a threefold development, physi
cal, mental and spiritual. Our pub
lic and state educational institu
tions are well equipped to provide
for the first two, physical and men
tal, but unfortunately our educa
tional laws will not permit of any
emphasis on the religious or spirit
ual development. Dr. Riley dwelt
on the Importance of this latter as
pect. nf an Ideal education, and
made a strong plea for the support
of denominational colleges.

Successful scientific horticulturists pronounce Clarkston
Heights practically perfect in scil, in elevation, in air drainage,
in safety from frosts, in slope of ground, in freedom from
Alkali, in length of season, to produce highly profitable crops
of choicest fruits.
Home sites on Clarkston Heights command by far the finest
outlook over this most beautiful valley. Snowy mountains,
miles of sparkling blue rivers, thousands of acres of pictur
esque orchards and vineyards, nestling homes and a busy city
comprise the view. As home sites alone these choice lots will
be worth in a few years many times the present prices.
The March CENTURY magazine describes the now-famous
"One Acre Ranch" of Clarkston, where a thrifty couple make
a good living and save money every year.
