In Memory of My Own Dear Loving
Mother Mother, lit the (lawn of dnv, I'm going far away, far away, Amlto l>e gone for years; I bade her farewell, And her bosom did swell, When 1 wijie 1 away her tears. Shall 1 meet her by and by In her mansion upon high? 1 cannot have another; She was always kind to me, And in Heaven do I hope to see, My own dear loving mother. Mother, I shall not forget, The last time when we met, She laid her face upon my breast; And she looked towards the sky, With a tear in her eve, And said, in Heaven soon she'd rest. In time I received a letter, That she could not get better. And to make haste without delay; Taking the first train. My heart filled with pain, Alas, to find out she had passed away. Meeting father nt the door, He said her life is o'er, When to his chair then led; While ma in death was sleeping, And loved ones around her weeping, For a loved spirit had fled. Then bathed her cheeks in tears, I had not seen for years. With a heavy throbbing at the breast; When I could plainly see, What she once had told to me, . In Heaven she would soon rest. With Heavenly Father's grace, O, my mother will embrace, In heaven without a frown; For her last words to me, In Heaven 1 should see, And she would let her window down. I loved my mother dear. And oft times drop a tear. When 1 bow the knee to God; For she taught me in my youth, To always tell the truth, Now she's sleeping 'neath the sod. Her grave is to be seen, Oh, loved ones keep it green, In season spread flowers in bloom; For she was loving and kind, To her children left behind, And to rise with angels from the tomb —John Bond, Sr. Blackfoot, Idaho, Aug. 26, 1916.

CENT POSTAGE COMING Efficiency in the post . illico depart incut with a proper read, ustinent cd' rates will permit the government to inagurate a one cent letter rate within the next year, according tq postmaster (ieneral, Albert IS. Burleson. This emphatic statement made by the postmaster general before the National Association of Postmasters jot' the Unit ed States at their July 1916 Convention, indicates that this important reform is much nearer realization than most people believe and that next winter will see radical steps taken toward this end. In addressing the Postmasters Gen eral Burleson declared that they are giv ing the liest postal service in the world today, and that is what the American farmer and business man are entitled to, for they pay for it. Htl advised the postmasters to spare no expense that means greater efficiency. "But that does not mean extrava gance,'' said Mr. Burleson. "Where is an official who will tell me that em ployees useless to the service should not In* looped off?'' I do not want, to be hard on postal employees. I believe the government should require only a cer tain number of hours work, and that under sanitary and comfortable condi tions, at a salary not only ikdequnte, but generous. It is my purpose and your duty to see that all employees perform an adequate service for the money ex pended. "Every dollar intelligently saved can be utilized for the improvement, de velopment and extension of service, re suiting in a. reduction in postage for those served.'' "Plans are being worked out for the solution of railway mail service prob lems. They are being solved in a way that will enable the United States to pay the railroads adequate compensa tion for service rendered, and pay only for service received. With this result if next year we. can make those using the second class mail service pay a one-half part of what they should, we can go before congress and take the first step toward penny postage.'' "The fact ghat this year we have a surplus of between $4,060,000 and $.1, 000,006 demonstrates that at last the postal service is on a strong business and self-supporting basis. If we can keep down useless extravagance, we can soon inaugurate one cent postage in this country." This frank statement from the post master general substantiates declara tions which have been made during the past year or two by officials of the Na tional One Cent Lettter Postage Asso ciation. which lias its headquarters at Cleveland, that with economical opera tion of the department and a reasonable adjustment of postal rates, one cent let ter postage could be inaugurated with out injury to the federal government, and letter users given tile benefit of a big reduction over current rates. Nearly sixty bills were represent I government of over over actual cost of distribution. At 1 at the present session of congress, cal ling for one cent letter postage. Scores of representatives and senators have been closely studying trio matter and have become united in a conviction that the time is ripe for out cent postage, a reform sought for many years, but only recently brought to the attention of congress through the persistent cam paign on the part of tin- National One Cent Letter Postage Association. At the present time letter users of the United States net |i profit to the $75,000,000 a year the same time large magazine interests are securing distribution of their pro dust at one cent a pound, which means a great loss to the government, and to make up this loss users of letter postage are paying a profit of 190 per cent. It is to correct this great injustice that the postmaster general and his hnndreds of assistants throughout the country are now employed. From all indications one cent letter postage prom ises to be one of the most important issues at this winter's session of con gress. gress.

This will be the first time in the his tory of the Congress that opportunity has been given the delegates to meet in a body all the practical men engaged in carrying into practice tho plans out lined by the congresess at their annual meetings since systematic work of re claiming lands by means of stored waters began 25 years ago. For that reason interest in the 1916 Irrigation Congress has been greatly enhanced. Owing to the number of new quest ions which will come before it for dis cussion and settlement the International Irrigation congress of 1916 will rank as one of the most important congres ses to be held since the work of re claiming the waste places of the coun try was first iungurated a quarter of a century ago. It has become more and more appar ent, each year, that in the reclamation of lands by means of irrigation as much attention must be paid to preventing the water logging of irrigated lands as. is paid to getting of water to the lands. .. „ . . .. , When the question of irngat.on became a national question attention was chief ly centered in the matter of conserving water and applying it to the lands to be reclaimed. In the intervening years it has been learned, often at bitter cost that there is such a thing as putting too much water upon the reclaimed lands. As a result more attention is being paid now, than in former years, to not only preventing the use of too much watei for irrigation purposes but to providing ways and means for re lieving the over-watered lands of their D'EXMA NewHerbaJSkinBalm mK .' 11 sufferers—'when we advise you to use D LAMA, the new herbal skin balm, we are ..... , . . , , advising you right.
