It Is said that the moat hard
ened criminal can not help ad
miring the Jury which convicts
him and the Judge who pro
nounces the sentence which
costs him his life, for there Is
something within him which
answers to Justice, npplauds
the verdict, and speaks even
louder than his own selfish
ness. That the human mind Is
constructed along the lines of
truth and fntented to repre
sent truth, and truth only, is
also shown by the fact that. In
the mdist of the greatest cor
ruption and bribery, at a time
when dishonesty seems to be
at a premium, when a real
man appears upon the scene,
falsehood cowers and evil
slinks out of sight. Ko power
fully do truth and honesty ap
peal to the human mind that,
no matter how corrupt and
base men are. they can not help
applauding when they hear
their accents. When charac

Jones county, Miss., which was re

one Moses Adams, who owned a saw
mill at that place, and whose long

of the latter, which he contended he
could not concede without loss of not
only his profits but his capital.
Having received his answer, his
workmen struck. Undismayed, Moses
Adams set about to secure other
workmen to take the places which
the strikers hud abandoned. The
strikers went Into camp, surrounded
the mill, sent out pickets, who threw
out. hard and fast, . all the strike
breakers who came within the lines.
Moses Adams fought his fight out

month: then he concluded to surren

strict accord with the most honored

the following interesting facts: The
production of metallic copper In the
United States for 1903 wan 698.044.
517 pounds of a value of $91,506,003.
In 1902. 44 per cent, or about 289
million pounds were produced from
an area a mile long and one-half
mile wide, at Butte, Mont.; 26 per
cent, or about 156 million pounds,
from a strip of country two to six
miles long, extending through the
center of Keeweenaw Peninsula
Mich.; and 18 per cent, or 130 million
pounds, from four isolated districts
in Arizona; of the remaining 12 per

THK HAS1S OF MOIlALK."
The Morning regonian declares
that the Kast Oregonian awaits to
hear what the Oregonian says and
then concludes that the opposite
should have been said.
It is the chief delight of the Kast
Oregonian to lead the helpless wan
derer, whether it be the tottering do
tard or the prattling child, back from
any perilous brink It may approach,
to the pathway of sanity and safety.
In this spirit the East Oregonian
took the Portland paper to task a few
days ago. for Its unsound moral doc
trine, as exhibited in its censure and
condemnation of two runaway Indi
an girls from the Chemawa school.
Ill speaking of the return of the
girls to school, after having eloped
with two libertines from 'Salem, the
Oregonian said: "As for the girls,
they are past all hoe of restoration
to lives of decency and the less effort
wasted on them, the better."
The East Oregonian believes this Is
a pernicious doctrine to teach, fn the
face of organized charity and re
forms, in the face of splendid self
sacrifice of noble men and women,
working tirelessly to aid and encour
age the weak and Ignorant and in
the face of the millions spent yearly
for the elimination of vice and the
establishment of the splendid stand
ards of purity.
It Is never too late to help the
weak and Ignorant back to the for
saken path- of rectitude; no effort Is
wasted In the last analysis, which baa

len. however low the rescuer must
reach to take the hand of the unhap

The Oregonian says "the basis of
morals Is within and that punishment
of wrongdoing will not conduce to
high personal moral standards.

Last summer while recovering from ill

Inflammatory Rheumatism in the knees,
from which I was unable to leave my
room for several months. I was treated
by two doctors and also tried different
kinds of linaments and medicines which
seemed to relieve me from pain for
awhile, but at the same time I was not
any nearer getting well. One day while
reading a paper I saw an advertisement
of S. S. S. for Rheumatism. I decided
to give it a trial, which I did at once.
After I had taken three bottles I felt a
great deal better, and I still continued
to take it regularly until I was entirely
cured. I now feel better than for years,
and I cheerfully recommend S. S. S. to
any one suffering from Rheumatism. l
