That our deedes can't be bet ter than our thoughts. When the cross old lady on the corner gave me a cookie, I couldn't forget I was scared, but mother says now we know she's Just as sweet as her cookies. It's nicer to think of her that way. Tlge says everybody In the 4 world Is as good as the best thing they ever did, and the other things are Just caterpillar skins which will sometime be cast away. He says, stop liv- lng among cross, selfish, de- celtful, narrow, vain, greedy, cruel, complaining people and get acquainted with your real neighbors. Buster Brown. CRUSHING LA FOLLETTE. An Associated Press dispatch (which will bear watching), from Washington, says that the national republican committee has laid a cun ning plan for the complete annihila tion of Senator La Follette and his torces. In the coming national con vention of his party. The- plan of the national commit tee Is to totally Ignore the primary law of Wisconsin, Oregon and other progressive states, and to order the election of delegates In conventions, which it Is reasonably expected may be "packed," as usual. The national committee cannot hope to crush the truth and progress by crushing La Follette. There Is something far more vital and far reaching in the popular measures which La Follette has helped to en act in Wisconsin, than La Follette's Individuality and La Follette's per sonal interest. There Is a nation-wide public sen timent, a sweeping movement of the masses toward political freedom, to ward higher political Ideals and prac tices, and the committee, by cutting off the power of the leaders cannot hope to crush the truth. By defeat ing La Follette the machine will only Increase the determination of the peo ple to win, and In the end the fall of the machine and the destruction of its corrupt practices and political revenges will be all the more terri ble. If the national committee wishes to hold republican votes and Insure the election of candidates ,It must recognize the rights of the people and the laws of the land. There Is a living, vital, fearless thought abroad that the people should rule this government, and no less a per sonage than President Roosevelt leads that thought. If the committee Is going to be re publican, why not be progressive and watchful, on the Roosevelt ordel lather than on the foxy, oily, would be aristocratic and smoothly hypo critical order of Chauncey Depew or Ms corrupt colleagues who have built up disrespect for law and order un til it has come to be considered a part of the program? The national committee may crush the power of Senator La Follette, but it cannot crush the things which La Follette stands for and which he has mad'; effective In his own state political freedom, progress and ef fective legislation through the people. these gentlemen seem to be undecld ed as to who shall bear the burden and wear the empty honors of being mayor. However, the East Oregonlan be lieves that there should be a change In the system of handling city funds. It seems that the city should be en titled to Interest on dally balances, There Is no objection to the present treasurer nor to the present deposl tory of city funds, but there Is well founded objection to the method of handling the funds, without Income to the city. The city funds should be let to the highest bidder who can furnish a safe bond, whether that bidder Is a bank merchant, farmer or sheepman. It makes no difference to the city, at large, who uses the money, so the city receives a Just and equitable re turn for Its use. This Is the only Issue In the cam paign and the people should Insist on a change In the policy of the city treasurer's office. No practical business man will let his money out to be used without Interest, if he can readily collect 4 or per cent Interest upon It. Then why should not a city run Its busi ness upon the same 'practical and business-like system? Almost enough interest could be realized from the use of city funds to pay the salary of the city recorder or city marshal, so why not enjoy this Income and save the taxpayers that sum? SEPTEMBER. The following meritorious little poem was written for the September number of the Ilakawlnn.the high school paper, by Miss Anita Slater, daughter of Attorney and Mrs. R. X Slater of this city, and a member of the high school class of 1909: The summer flowers have sought their beds The summer days are dying; ( While violets lift up their heads, And autumn winds are sighing. Birds farewell are sweetly calling And the gaudy sunflowers nod; Ripe brown nuts are gently falling, Where waves the golden-rod. The fruit Is bending down the trees, It is time the corn was brown; Red and yellow are the leaves Of septemper gayesi gown. JOAQIIX MILLER'S NEIGHBOR. IS UXITY IMPOSSIBLE? OXLV ISSIE IX CITY ELECTION. Fo far there is but slight Interest in the city flection, for the very good reason that present conditions, pres ent progress and present policies are satisfactory and seemingly best for the city. So, there Is no general Issue ex cept to continue the present excellent male of uffairs, keep municipal Im provements moving and maintain the present status of decency and good order. The administration of Mayor Fee has been marked by radical changes from former administrations. It has been an administration of activity, force and good results and whether Mayor Fee or Councilman E. J. Mur phy is chosen to fill the mayor's chair for the next term, this same progres sive policy will continue. So far, A lifelong church member says, In nswer to the East Oregonlan's plea for church unity, "How can I give p my belief on baptism, or the atone ment, or other features of my creed? How can we meet on a common be lief when we have such widely dt- ergent views of religion?" Renunciation Is the first Christian Irtue. To give up personal pleasures, per sonal views, personal ideals for the common good. Is the acme of Chris tian sentiment. As long as men cling to" man-made creeds, to man-made Ideals, founded upon technical dif ferences in scriptural interpretation, the church will be divided, and divid ed, will be less forceful, less attrac tive, less effective as an Instrument of good In the land. Everywhere the church is getting way from the brimstone and Bmoke Idea. It Is getting away from the doctrine of fear, which has sent more men and women to early and ago nizing death, than any other feature of religion, and they are coming to the thought that religion is tolerance and love and charity. They are coming to the thought that God Is within every human breast, and that an educated and en lightened conscience is the very Christ which men have been taught to look for In a far away region, in accessible and remote. The action of man to man, the dally life of the believer, square dealing, the tolerance and charity of the mind, the ability of the man to master him self through his mind and his wil lingness to help the helpless, direct the erring, sustain the faltering and give light and cheerfulness to the pessimistic these are the true and living tenets of religion, rather than church going, psalm . singing and building up of great business enter prises and establishments which often oppress, rather than relieve men of their burdens. It Is the "spirit of the hive-within," and not the architectural features of the hive, which counts In genuine re ligious progress. A $75,000 building. If not filled with the true spirit of helpfulness and tolerance and human kindness, Is simply a barren enter prise. Unity Is possible under the true Christian guidance. TRY THE LAXD FRAUD CASES. There has been a great deal of talk about the speedy trial of the remain ing Oregon land fraud cases, says the Salem Journal. But they do not bring the Indicted men to trial. Heney has published several times that the Oregon cases would soon be tried at Portland. But there are no signs of starting up the mills of Justice. How long can the United States hold up an Indicted man before giv ing him a day In court? Has the federal government any greater rights than any other party In a case? Has the government any right to Indefinitely extend the day for hear ing even a land fraud case? Should not Judge Wolverton say to the United States government, bring these men to trial? Is not the citizen guaranteed a speedy trial and a hearing without delay in a court of Justice even against the federal government? We believe the court should order these trials to go ahead. A light heart maketh a bright out look. Sunset Magazine for October con tains the following little story of Joa quln Miller and a neighbor who Is a poetess: The poet of the Sierra, whose home Is on the hills above Frultvale, has a poetic friend and neighbor In Dora Cureton of Melrose, wife of the ed itor of the Advertiser of that little town, and the devoted mother of four little Curetons. When these poets can not exchange visits they write poetry to each other. Not long ago this came down as Poet Miller's trib ute: That bravest woman, truest, best, Beneath her forty stars Is she Who loves her spouse most ardently And rock the cradle oftenesL Who rocks and sings and rocks and then When birds are" nestling rocks again. The Melrose poet thereupon accept ed the compliment by writing this In' response: Sierra's poet! high and pure thy muse Enthroned doth sit amongst the stars and snows; And from thy harp olympian music flows, Of glacier heights, and gleaming mountain dews Of western sea, and burning sunset hues. And we look up who on the plain re pose, And catch faint glimpses of the mount that throws Athwart thy poet-sight diviner views. And not alone from starry shrine is strung Thy lyre, but tuned to gentler lay, : That sings of children, motherhood and home, And lifts our hearts and lives to sweeter day. O bard of Nature's heart! thy name will rest Immortal in thy land our Golden West! THE LOVE OF A WOLF. The love of a wolf for a man saved the life of Alfred Hill, animal keeper at Denver City park Wednesday afternoon. Mr. Hill had gone into the bears' den to quiet old Abe and the one oth er grizzly in that inclosure. Both of these giant animals have been ex tremely ugly during the last several days, attacking the other bears with out provocation. The animal keeper was unafraid. despite the ugly temper displayed b the grizzlies, and braved them, armed with no more formidable weapon than a leather quirt. rtYou stand around there and get on your good behavior," air. Hill said to old Abe, pretty much the same as he would to a bad boy. The grizzly didn't reply in words, but he was seen to wag his head In his mate's direction and both of them suddenly arose to their hind legs and closed In upon their keeper. Hill's life was not worth a penny at that moment. The Instant old Abe and the other grizzly reached him, however, Jim, the gray wolf I:i the adjoining Inclosure, came to his res cue. Behind Jim was his entire faithful pack. In less time than it takes to tell about it, old Abe and his mete were surounded by a howl ing, snapping, snarling pack of wolves that kept their bearships so busy that Mr. Hill had ample time to escape. S S RIDS THE SYSTEM 0FEIALIMA. Malaria is an atmospheric poison which we uiconsciously breathe into onr system. 1 he blood in its constant passage through the lungs absorbs uie germs, and they destroy the rich, red corpuscles of this vital fluid and reduce it to such a weak, watery condition that it is unable to properly nourish the system, and disease gets a foothold. Then the symptoms of Malaria, aucn as Dale, sallow couiolexions. weak vitality, poor appetite, deranged digestion. and perhaps chills and fever 6how that the trouble is affecting every part of the body. Malaria also atlects the liver, producing a chronic state of bilious ness, and often a long spell of fever follows when the blood becomes fully contaminated with the poison. Chronic Sores and Ulcers, boils, aches and pains, and skin affections of' various kinds often result from this insidious disease if the poison is allowed to accumulate in the blood in sufficient quan tities. Malaria must be removed from the system through the circulation and for this purpose nothing equals 3. S. S.

S. not only cleanses the blood of the cause, but furnishes it with the healthful properties it needs, so that instead of a weak, germ-infected stream, spreading disease throughout the system, it becomes a rich, red fluid, nourishing: the body and enabling it to resist disease.

PASTIME PARLORS BASEMENT HENDRICKS HLDG. By order of congress the names of the heads of families living In Am- erl at the time the first census was taken, in 1790, are to be published In printed volumes. Three of these In teresting documents, containing the names of those who lived In Vermont, New Hampshire and Maryland, are ready, and on sale at the census of fice in Washington. Census-taking in 1790 was no such complicated business as It has since become. Nowadays an enormous number of questions Is asked by the enumerator, so that practically every detail of the life of a citizen which can be of use to the student of eco nomics is recorded; but when the second session of the first congress obeyed the constitutional mandate to make an enumeration of the peo ple," it required little more than the bare counting. "Free white males, 16 years and upward, including heads of families; free white males under 16; free while females, Including heads of families;, all other pree persons; slaves;" so reads the list prescribed. The counting was left to the Unit ed States marshals In the several dis tricts, and no blanks were furnished them. The marshals found their own paper. As a result, In the bound vol umes of the original schedules at Washington there are some sheets three feet long and some not mora than four Inches; these are ruled by nana, and with the names of the lists at tne neaa of . colums written by nana.

The wandering souls around thee, till not one Was left to wall In darkness? Then art thou That Judge whose Love and Wisdom glveth praise, Instead of blame, to all, swift to al low Equity's law to govern divers ways. Arise, thou Holy One with radiant brow.
