From thousand suns It flashes,
It leaps In flour and flame;
The spring, from winter's ashes,
Cries out its silent name
The secret of the ages
That to the poet came.
Unknown to all the sages,
However wise they be.
Through his quick veins It
A soul of ecstacy;
It lightnings from his pages,

The secret of the ages
To be forever young.

OUR OWN NORTHWEST.
Chauacey Thomas, In the Novem
ber number of Success Magazine,
writes a fascinating article on the
building up of the great cities of the
Pacific coast, and on thi gradual rise
of one central and pivotal commer
cial and shipping center of the coast.
All his deductions lead to the con
clusion that the traffic which is to
flow from the western half of the
American continent to the orient will,
of necessity, pour through the gorge
of the Columbia river, down a natural
water grade to Portland, there to be
loaded into ocean vessels by the
By nature Portland is fitted for the
commercial throne of the Pacific.
5h? is situated at the gateway of the
greatest river highway of the western
half of the continent and there Is no
escape from her allurements nor from
her commercial conquest.
Mr. Thomas has read western sym
lustrates this universal disregard foi
the wicredness of the human body.
When asked by the East Oregonlan
recently how he brought the supplies
for his household up the steep two
miles of mountain from the car line
Ui his home on "The Heights," near
Oakland, he replied: "When It Is too
stormy to use my horse, I go myself
on foot and pack up the supplies."

XO OIL FAKES.
The East Oregonlan hopes there Is
no "faking" about the Payette oil
well. Nothing w,ould be more bene
ficial for eastern Oregon than a gen
uine ojl wll in southern Idaho, where
drilling is now In progress in several
But the East Oregonian does object
to bogus oil wells being advertised
for the purpose of boosting oil stocks
and robbing unsuspecting people. It
If the curse of all legitimate enter
prises of this kind that they are forc-
fi to Burinoit a laree number of
leeches which suck blood and give
back nothing In return.
There are oil prospects In Idaho
and Oregon. Payette, Nyssa and On
tario all have excellent prospects,
and sooner or later somebody will
strike the vein and the country will
be revolutionized by that master
stroke of good fortune ,
But let us wait until we find oil
before talking of gushers and spout
ing wells. Oil land Is oil land and
should not be made a vehicle of rob
bery. Let genuine development pro
ceed. Everybody welcomes legiti
mate oil news, but the public should
not be Imposed upon. '
A man buys a 13000 automobile
and Immediately b.?glns exercising
the most scupulous care over It, to
prevent damage, breaks and wear.
He hires a chauffeur, rents a stall In
a garage, buys the best of tools and
oil, wipes and rubs and polishes It
dally and acts as though It ware a
living thin? and could understand his
cooing over It.
But a man takes his own body, the
only one he can ever have, and pours
booze Into It, stuffs It with gorges of
vnpalateable foods, exposes it to the
weather, n'gl.rts it when Its senses
call to him loilily for relief, makes it
a swill barrel of dissipation and de
bauches It beyond description.
He can buy another automobile
when the old one Is worn out He
can buy fixtures and fittings and
parts to It from any d.:aler. But his
own body and health he cannot re
pair nor recover If he wastes and de
stroys it. Yet many of us are con
stantly wasting and destroying the
body and health and human mind
compose thu most marvelous machine
In the universe and yet It Is not ap
preciated by too many of us.

The East Oregonlan Is glad to hear
the Tribune Indorse the, proposed
plan to collect Interest on dally bal
ances of the city fumls, after the
funds have been allotted to the high
est bidder, whether bank, store, news
paper or Individual, which can give
the city a sufficient bond for the safe
keeping of the fund.
But while we are advocating Inter
est on city funds and the deposit of
the funds with the highest bidder, the
salary of the city treasurer must not
be forgotten. It Is not right to ask
a man to take the place for nothing,
for It requires bookkeeping and close
attention to city interests to conduct
Either the city -should employ a
responsible bookkeeper for the treas
urer or allow him salary to compen
sate h'lm for the work If the funds
are allotted to the highest bidder.
The city Is now paying 125 per
month for a financial agent and
bookkeeper for the finance commit
tee of the city council and with a
slight addition to this compensation,
It might be possible to have the
treasurer's books kept In good order.
But this matter can be worked out
to suit the city council and treasurer
after the funds are allotted to the
highest bidder. The Interest. Is the
most important matter.
It Is perfectly right and business
like that Pendleton should be draw
ing Interest on her dally balances
every day; The people are entitled

Work as he will, the prospector, or
backwoodsman, finds himself stop

Frontiersmen there are. who were
never so lonely as when on the

on the other hand, people of the me

It Is as narrow an existence to re
main always In a city as to dwell
apart in the mountains or forests.
But the city, dweller, If he will, can
catch snatches of the peace of the
hills, can get In close touch with na
ture, 'and thus keep himself whole

tlful elements of the universe.
If the big trust companies and
financial concerns which are now
falling to pieces In the east are
bullded upon fictitious foundations,
let them tumble. The quicker the
better. The country has been cursea
too long with bogus values, watered
stocks, Inflated financial gaS bags.
Let the crash come to the fictitious
concerns. It will be better for those
which survive and better for the
country. Those which survive mis

PLEA FOR JOY.
We are the heirs of progress, ours is
the pride of place.
We who have conquered Nature, wo
who have conquered space.
Ours Is the victor's pean, triumph
But, sated with gold and glory, we
hunger, we thirst for Joy,
Back in the dusky ages, men strug
gled and fought and fell,
Found life's tale worth telling, en
Joyed It passing well;
Knew not the varied splendors that
our sad hearts employ,
Lacked, It may be, for comfort, bat
never they lacked for Joy.
We who have tamed life's lions, have
all but vanquished fate.
Find never life's wine enchanting, or
waste It sooner or late;
Does victor undiluted the soul's fresh
Powers of the bygone gladness, give
us a taste of Joy.. ,

WHERE MONEY COMES FROM.
Portland people were going to
raise 1100,000 In one day this week
for a rose show. The soliciting com
mittee got Just one-fourth of it and
this amount was mostly from the
wagearners and small merchants.
Such Is usually the case. The big
men VII "holler" loudest but will
not make good on public enterprises
In proportion to the little fellows.

Gertrude Lynch in November Every
body's says of the extravagances
practiced by the Idle rich:
Of the various costly accessories, a
pair of gloves Is worn but once; and
delicate shoes, made of imported
leather to match the tint of a fabric,
suffer a similar eclipse after a de
but in a ballroom. For many women
pride themselves on never wearing
a cleaned garment. After a couple
of wearlngs they will send an Import
ed gown to a second hand dealer,
receiving a 1100 bill for the creation
that may have cost 1800. The deal
er sells it to an actress starting on
her tour, to the society lejider of a
small town, or to a member of the

ments spends there from 11.500 to
11800 a year. For when one pays
120 to have a lace gown cleaned aftor
a single wearing; when gloves by the
hundreds and blouses BO at a time
are sent to be renovated, It does nflt
take long to reach a sum that paral
lels the salary on which many a man
supports a family.
