The East Oregonlan Is neither a re. ligious weekly nor a health Journal, but It is forced to note occasionally the excellent progress being made In the thought of the world. In religion, medicine and other subjects there is a wonderful forward movement today. People are thinking and acting upon their thought as never before, and they are getting marvelous returns from It. One of the simplest health formu las that has come under this paper's notice recently Is from a new thought magazine and Is- as follows: "As often as you think of It during the day. take a few sips of cold water, -thinking each time as you do so: How much sweet, pure water Is there In the world; how good It Is and what healing forces It possesses; how it cleanses and purifies and strengthens the body and mind of man. "And as often as you can during sach day go out Into the open air and -breathe deeply and slowly for a few moments, thinking as you do so how much pure air there Is In the world for you; how It strengthens and blesses life and how It vitalizes us and makes us broad and strong and noble. Throw back the shoulders and draw the -fresh air to the fartherest limit of your lung power and think and hope for health and strength as .you do so." We always receive what we Invite. The same journal says that many people actually starve to death for lack of water. Others -simply perish In offices and closed dwellings for want of fresh air. Plenty of water and good air are the foundations of health. This being so Is It not a world-wide shame to see much Illness and disease, early death, dwarfed lives and unhappy environments? Many honest and conscientious men believe that It Is a crime ta be lazy; to refuse to perform manual labor. In it not a worse crime then, not to use the mind which Js greater than the hand? Let us think more and worry less; let us try to recog nize the fact that the greatest guide, the greatest physician, the greatest savior of man Is found within his own forces. NO FIGHT ON FORESTRY. "The tsheepmen of the northwest cannot afford to have it said they are to raise a $10,000 fund with which to fight the forestry and range policy .of the Room-veil administration. The settlement of the wtst and the nar rowing "f the public domain make some sort of regulation absolutely imc't'Nsary to preserve timber and land and water for future generations and . it seems that the forest reserve sys tem is the first great step In that direction. ' There are certain to be more or less .losses of personal privilege in chang- Ing from the old to the new order. The open range of the -west has made the stockman a king and a dictator In the past. It Is difficult for many of them to surrender all their old tlmo "rights" at "one fell swoop," but. the change Is coming and the stockmen cannot afford to raise funds to delay progress. Let us make the best of the change. Let us welcome progress as cheer fully as we can ami adjust our af fairs to the new order with the least possible friction. .V fund to fight any proposition means corruption and people will at once nsk, What are you going to do with It? How are you going to spend It? Who Is going to get It? What ara the purposes of the fund? The stockmen cannot afford to have these questions asked. Let us help adjust the forestry administra tion and make It as easy as possible on everybody Interested, but let-us not attempt to overthrow It or any feature of It. ' SARCASM ON SCHOOLS. In a sarcastic editorial on the fining of Willie Hosklns of Echo for whipping his school teacher, the Sun day Oregonlan took occasion to roast the public school system in a quiet, but forcible manner. The Oregonlan says: "Except in remote places like Echo, there are no big boys on the benches in the public schools during the winter term. Much more are they absent in the summer. "School has nothing to give them which they think worth while so they find a Job In the city or hire out to work for a neighbor. THE DISTRICT SCHOOL PARTED COMPANY WITH LIFE LONG AGO. But by the separation it has gained In peaceful ness. The brain and muscle of a man are no longer needed to govern it. But It has lost in usefulness and power. "When the schools begin to offer a substantial education Instead of shadows and chimeras the big boys will come back again for the winter, term and perhaps for the summer, too. There will be no more Incidents like the Insurrection of Willie Hos klns and we shall have to hire men of muscle for teachers instead of RoUlen haired maidens with fairy forms." The East Oregonlan objects to Echo being called a "remote place." No town in Oregon is more, accessible or better known than Echo, and no place In Oregon can boast of a larger proportion of good people than this little metropolis of the Irrigated belt. The East Oregonlan further objects to the Sunday Oregonlan's estimate of the public schools. The statement of the Oregonlan to the effect tbat a "man of muscle" is needed to teach school savors of the animal stage from which man long ago evoluted. Brain and Intellect and not muscle should rule today. It is only the non-progressive thought of men who cannot get out of the animal stage that makes muscle necessary to teach" ing. If parents and citizens will set the example that Intellect is supreme the need of muscle in school teaching will soon vanish. It is the suggestion of parents and teachers that boys are bad that usually makes them bad, If we can climb above the thought of animalism and brute force In schools, business life and social rela tions, the gplden haired maidens can teach as well as physical giants. CLAIMS OF THE WEST END. The East Oregonlan some time ago received a communication from the west end of Umatilla county setting forth the claims of that end of the county in the coming county election. Had the communication been sign ed by the author it would have been published, but it is an invariable rule riot to publish any letter or communi cation, of any nature whatsoever, un less the author is known to the pa per and for this reason the commu nication which really expressed some pertinent facts, found its way Into the furnace room in the East Oregonlan building and contributed Its share of heat to the editorial offices when Its eloquence might have been applied otherwise. The communication, asked for the selection of a county commissioner from the west end of the county this year to represent that growing and progressive section, and the claim is Just and valid. With the settlement of the Umatilla irrigation project the west end of Umatilla county is going to assume much more Importance in county af fairs than heretofore. That section of the county hag always been rich and prosperous and progressive and has contributed very largely to the expense of the county and now this will be especially true. It is only fair that the west end be represented In the county court There are peeullnr problems to be met In that 'section, where the entire section Is devotej to irrigation, which' make It almost necessary to have a county commissioner on the board who Is not only a thorough Irriga tion!, but also who . will be ublo to Intelligently present the needs of an irrigated dliitrlct such as that Is com ing to be. Roadmuklng,. bridge building and other public Improvements must have special treatment In that Handy dis trict. The same rules which may ap ply to the wheat belt where homes are few and far between, will not apply to the Irrigated districts where land is high, holdings small and soil conditions different. Tlie west end should have a man on the board constantly hereafter. While the East Oregonlan deeply regrets the defeat of the Pendleton high school debating team at Enter prise on Saturday night, yet It can readily understand the secret of the defeat. The Pendleton team was well equipped for the debute; it had been ably drilled; it had gathered volumes of excellent statistics; it had rehears ed its arguments and fortified itself at every possible point, but the sen timent of the present day was against Pendleton. She had the negative side of the question, "Resolved, That the government should own and operate, the railroads." The world thought Is sweeping on In favor of government ownership and has evidently reached the recesses of Wallowa county from which the judges were selected. It may seem folly to some to say that people can perform arduous manual labor without becoming fa tigued; It seems unreasonable to say that we can prevent half of the ill ness which ' afflict humanity If we will; It may sound ridiculous to assert that the world consumes perhaps four times more food than is neces sary In maintaining Its health and strength. Yet as 'one advances along mental lines and studies nature and the human organism more and more, these things seejn perfectly sane and proper. Mankind Is giving too much time to frivolous and transitory things and is neglecting self, the very kingship of the individual life, all too much. If we would use our pow ers and save our energies we could do more with less effort. HALF OF MISSOURI "DRY." Adair county, Missouri, went "dry" last week about two to one. Only one precinct went "wet." Eight sa loons were put out of business; No vlnger five, Coffeyville two and Stahl one. Saturday Clay county, outs'de of Liberty and Excelsior Springs, voted on prohibition and went "dry" by 318 majority. The liquor element made a hard fight to win and car ried the other four townships by big majorities. In one township, Wash ington, there' were only 10 liquor votes. Liberty voted dry 3 to 1 sev eral weeks ago. Excelsior Springs has not voted on the question and no move has been made in the direction. Saturday's vote means the closing of four saloons. Two of these are in Harlem, Just across the river from Kansas City, one In Smithvllle and one In Randolph. It was that por tlon of the county that gave the heaviest liquor vote. There were 1, 386 votes cast against saloons and 1,' 068 In their favor. The addition of Clay and Adair counties makes 63 prohibition coun ties in the state or eleven more than half, not counting the city of St. Louis. Johnson county will vote February 8, the city of Wnrrenshurg February 6 and Pettis county Febru ary 15, Local option elections are pending in several other counties. Kansas City Star.' WORLD'S GREATEST WONDER. A question which travelers often ask each other In various parts of the world is: "What is really the greatest natural wonder on earth?" It Is easy to answer now since the stu pendous fajls of the Zambesi river have been discovered. David Living ston called the main fall "the most wonderful sight I had visited In Af rica." And when one imagines the spectacle of one of the world's might iest rivers, two miles wide, , fulling sheer 420 feet. It Is not hard to agree with one of the greatest travelers that ever lived. .Our own Niagara Is only half a mile wide and 158 feet high, so that it figures as a mere cascade In comparison. In the city election at Knoxvllle, Tenn., Saturday, the temperance forces won a majority of the council members. Enforcement of the tem perance laws was the main Issue of the election. r"f Thousands J&lTJjK ofletters f.

As the blood becomes more fully contaminated with the poison, pustular eruptions and sores break out on the flesh, and in extreme cases the nerves and bones are attacked and the finger nails drop off. Then the sufferers find themselves diseased from head to foot with this humiliating, vile and destructive poison. No other disease is so highly contagious ; many an innocent person has been inoculated by handling the clothing or using the toilet articles of an infected person. There is but one certain, reliable cure for Contagious Blood Poison, and that is S. S. S. It attacks the disease in the right way by going down into the circulation, and neutraliiing and forcing out iT' ev'v CCj Vd? tw' blood VkaJV tZV . an.l VEGETABLE PURELY disease begin the use of S.
