(J VON ,VUB EL Not till we meet with Love In all his beauty. In all his solemn majesty and worth. Can we translate the meaning of life's 'duty. Which God oft writes In cy pher at our birth. N'ot till Love comes In all his strength and terror, Can we read other's hearts; not till then know A wide compassion for all hu- man error. Or sound the quivering depths of mortal woe. Not till we sail with him o'er stormy oceans. Have we seen tempests; hid den In his hand He holds the keys to all the great emotions; Till he unlocks them, none can understand. Selected. PENDLETON" AN EXAMPLE. Pendleton's successful market day ii now being used by other towns In the northwest as an inducement for the Installation of such events In ther places. WaiUburg, Colfax, Ritzville. Eugene.- Roseburg and half a dozen good small towns In the rtates of Washington and Oregon are planning market days and point to Pendleton's success as the chief In ducement. In this as in every other progres iive movement Pendleton has taken the lead and, has set an example. She has set a vnce which Is very al luring but which it will be very dif ficult for other places to follow. Remember that Pendleton is not a -imall town. When you get Into Pen dleton's class you will be 'going iome." Don't think that because Pendleton makes a success of a thing that it Is easy for any country village to do likewise. Market days and district fairs which are highly suc cessful in Pendleton fall far below the standard in towns where there Is less vim and vig.r and smaller bumps of aggressiveness on the heads jf business men. CATTLE GOIXC; HIGHER. There is every prospect that fat cittle- are going to be higher this spring than for many years. Uma tilla county feeders are holding for 14.50 and they are sure to get that much, and perhaps more before March 15, according to all indications i- the northwest. While Umatilla county Is perhaps feeding more than the usual number, this Is not so in other counties of the rnland empire. Yakima Is feeding lefs, Klickitat is feeding less. Union, Baker, Malheur and Harney counties ire feeding less and so the bulk of the spring supply Is coming from Cmatilla county. So it will undoubtedly pay to hold ca'.tle this year Only the choicest grade Is now being fed here. All the poorer grades have been sold off and so the East Oregonian predicts even better than $4.50 for our re maining fat herds by March 1 or 15. ONLY OXE CURE There is only one cure for gambl ing and that cure is abnolute and ngil prohibition. As long as there ar. m.iymn and saloon followers In th- tour.try. there will be secret X-trt.i)..:.. 1: j Impossible to crush u ou- branch of the business and leave tbe root growing. As long as the rw. i)1 the evil thrive, all Its Ur'-'h- are going to thrive either i'i j uoi.c- 'it In aer-ret. The Ir.ii'.tratnt of gamblers found ,iayir g o-.r a well known Main M'.f-x fa! or, Know that It in useless 40 compromise or "fiddle around" tilth the futjj'-el any longer. PerT jdieton saloons have had all kinds of warning?, they have been given all kinds of chances to continue In busi ness If they will be orderly and law abiding, but It seems useless to talk any longer. As long as the saloon followers are In town they are going to ply their trade. It la useless to have police regulations, useless to talk decency to a certain class of saloon men and so the entire business must go. There is no other cure. Everybody knows that there is a large number of men In Pendleton who do nothing but gamble, despite the protests of saloon men that there is no gambling. These fellows have no other occupation; they follow no other trade; they have no other line of business, so when you see them living here from month to month, you know perfectly well that they are gambling and are protected some where by some saloon who has guilty knowledge of their business. So it Is Impossible to trust the sa loons, even after the warnings they have had. The only cure for the gambling and tinhorn evil Is abso lute prohibition and that as quickly as it can be voted. There Is no use to "beat around the bush" or speak In whispers. The facts must be met. DIGGING THEIR OWN GRAVE, The railroads are making govern ment ownership sentiment. Just as the saloons are making prohibition tentlment, and the Idaho Sclmatar, the new democratic weekly publish ed by ex-Senator Fred T. Dubois of Idaho at Boise, In commenting on a recent editorial in the East Oregon Ian oh this subject, says: It should be evident to the rail roads that the people have determin ed to have fair treatment at the hands of the corporations. That is all they demand, but so much they will have. The railroads had arrogated to themselves the right to dominate In state and municipal affairs, and their power In congress was nearly abso lute. It crops out quite often, yet that these corporations do not under stand the sentiment behind the move ment to regulate the common car rlers. There is an irresistible demand for government ownership, but one could he created easily enough by the rail roads themselves. The sooner rail road magnates make up their minds to attend strictly to their own proper business and leave the regulation of domestic affairs to the different com munlties, the better it will be for the peace and prosperity of all concern ed. The threat that shops and depots and new lines will not be built if the people do or refuse to do certain things which a particular railroad of ficer may think proper causes re- seniment wnicn aoes no one any good. WASTED HUMAN ENERGY. mere is as much human energy wasted In longing and hoping and pining for impossible and unreason able things as Is employed in doing the work of the world. Look around you at the people who have been disappointed, so to speak, In life. They have not accomplish ed all they desired; they have failed to become rich, to gain places and position of power and prestige; they have failed to take advantage of op portunities which presented them selves, and so are disgruntled, com plaining, peevish and discontented and waste more strength In mourn ing over their alleged sad fate than they do in performing the tasks of their lives. If people would learn to make the best of everything; of they could make themselves do the very best in any position In which they are cast; If they would be cheerful and con tnted and hopeful no matter what heir lot. they would live longer, be better citizens, do more good in the world and help humanity more than In any other way, MI ST KEEP THE NEGROES. The Kansas City Star, In discussing Henry Watterson's recent speech in New York on the negro question, says that It Is evident that the I'nlted States must keep I he negro; that it Is impossible to think of de portation, colonization or removal to some separate country. We must keep him, educate him, uplift him and make the best of the mess In which the 20th cerrlury finds us. The Ktar says: One of the rn.ist eloquent, sound and lifting utterances ever made on the tremendously Important race problem as it now stands was the ad drees of Mr. Henry Watterson, editor of the Louisville Courier-Journal, In New Vork last week. Kvery one who reads, white or j black, should read and ponder on this statement It embodies one of the highest tributes ever paid to the negro, but It Is rationally qualified, taking Into account the weakness and the limitations of the negro charac ter and the restrictions of present environment. What Is probably still more to the point, it recognizes the grave obli gations of the white race, the error and misguidance of the past, the failure to grasp the problem. Mr. Watterson has no visionary theory of solution. He admits the, truth, potency and possibilities of the Booker T. Wash ington plan of development, and takes his stand on the ground that the negro cannot be exported, cannot be Isolated, but must be accepted as a component part of society. Such an utterance and the thought, approval and new purposes it may Inspire, will help, along with other results, to remove the race question, locally and nationally, from the realm of politics. Being a distinguished man of the south as well as a great personality in the democratic party, Mr. Watter son's address ought to bear In this direction. Also, It ought to call at tention once more to the fact that Mr. Watterson Is now and for a long time has been the wisest counselor in his party. He Is right on every great question he discusses. He Is not only right, but he is courageously, aggressively right. He Is far-sighted. When others are groping their way, he has arrived at the correct conclusion. And his present conclusions ought to have additional weight In view of the vindication of those of the past. Try to think of the west end of Umatilla county as a verdant field of alfalfa, a white' sea of cherry blos soms, a pink vista of peach bloom. That is the dream that Is to be real ized there soon. We don't know what Is hidden under the surface of that rich section. Since Brownell has given his, tes timony In the land frauds case what do you think of Senator Fulton's connection with the senatorial deal in the legislature. In which land frauds were used as a club over un willing voters' heads? Walk down Main or Court streets any day and notice the new faces In Pendleton We are getting some new blood every day. And there is more coming. Just do your work the best you can and be content. That is the se cret of long life and happiness. Try It. It is a cheap medicine. THE RECORD OF PANAMA. This Is the record down to date of xcavation at Panama: In 1904, under the old French methods of work, average for the month, 30,434 cubic yards. In 1305, under Mr. Wallace's Im proved methods, average for . the month, 92.893 cubic yards. In 1906, under Mr. Stearns getir direction, average flnr ener the month, 412,374 cubic yards.

If the new postal' regulations have resulted In cutting off 6,000,000 pieces of second-class matter, ns stated In another column, publishers of legiti mate newspapers will be Inclined to rl.se up and call Postmaster General Meyer blessed. This means excluding 6.000,000 pieces not entitled to second-class rates. It means cutting off mall or der sheets which have been the rrieans of luring the dollar from Its own neighborhood to swell thp fortune of the millionaire In the big city, . It means that the advertisement of the merchant in his home' paper will be more effective and that advertising space In the local paper will there fore be more In demand. We should think the country editor would say to the postmaster general. "Lay on. Macduff." etc. American Press. We Sell on the positive guarantee that if it does not give satis faction we will return the entire amount of money paid us for it. We mean this and ask all those who are sick and need strength to try it with this understanding. THE PENDLETON DRUG CO., Pendleton. Oregon. REV. TR0UTMAN SENDS BEST WISHES FOR PERUNA Rev," George A.
