When Fortune frowned! I know what you would say: "They shunned you then and let you go your way." Not so! Not one of them but heard my call Of dire distress, and came, for after all A friend's a friend! Buffalo News. ADVERTISING UMATILLA. The April number of the Coast Magazine of Seattle. Is wholly a Uma tilla county number and as such will give the county a wonderful amount of excellent advertising. The entire magazine, with the exception of a few -miscellaneous short stories, is made up of Umatilla county articles and adver tisements and It is a credit to the county and to the enterprise of the publisher, H. L. Wllhelm. Mr. Wilhelm exacted no big bonus from the county for his Umatilla cmnty number, but was satisfied with the legitimate business which he was able to secure In the county. On this Inducement alone, he filled the entire magazine with Umatilla county read ing matter and Illustrations and it Is safe to say that this Is the most com prehensive review of the county's re sources, history and attractions ever published outside of the county. Pendleton business men purchased 500 ccples of the Umatilla county number and will endeavor to place them in the hands of intending home seekers who will be attracted here by the excellent showing made In this number of the Seattle magazine. It may be said to the different towns of the county and of the busi ness men of the county that they pat ronized this number liberally with In dividual advertisements, for which the East Oregonlan sincerely hopes they will reap a well merited return. It pays to advertise. There Is no other way In which to reach any consider able proportion of the people and while results often come in a round about way, yet it is always certain that they will come. THE GOULD DIVORCE CASK. The charges made against Mrs. Howard Gould by her husband In hlB suit for divorce gives another glimpse of the life among the Smart Set, so graphically pictured during the Thaw murder trial. According to Mr. Gould, a succes sion of cocktails, highballs, gin fizzes and other seductive drinks followed each other down his wife's throat from early noon, when Mrs. Gould first awakened from her drunken dreams, until the wee sma" hours when she sank into an intoxicated slumber. She also swore like a trooper, smoked cigarettes and in other ways copied the manners of the tenderloin. If these accounts of life among the very rich, the "law-defying, God-deny, ing, Idle rich," are true, and there are many corroborations which con firm the stories that drift out of the effete east, idleness and wealth are fast producing their usual results of degeneracy and decay In America. The "smart set" Is doomed to early extinc tion by its own vices and follies, and to go the way of the smart sets of all nations. There is little danger In America of t!ie rottenness above permeating the social fabric of the country, as hap pened in ancient Rome, when the na tion became degenerate and an easy prey to barbarians, but the support of a butterfly class Is useless luxury while idle workers parade the streets tr. vain search for work to pay for frod and drink, Is Ukey to produce a social revolution having for its object the more equitable distribution of u . ,1th amorg the real wealth-produc ers. The excesses of the smart sets of their various times caused the "Roundhead rebellion," the French revolution and nearly all great upris ings of the people which have dotted the pages of history. It la not a good thing for any land to have the muny slaving for a bare sustenance so that the pampered few nay lead luxurious lives, parasites sapping the life blood of the nation. President Roosevelt was right In class, lug both the Idle rich and the h.obo together as useless classes of society. LABOR IS FOR THE UNIVERSITY. The following for the Portland Dally Journal indicates that the intelligent worklngmen of the state do not pur pose to be misled In the matter of am ple support for the state university: The executive board of the State ederatlon of Labor has passed a resolution urging that labor union men In all parts of the state support the University of Oregon appropria tion bill. There are 88 affiliated labor organ izations in Oregon and all of them have been notified of the action 'of the State Federation. When seen yesterday President C. H. Gram spoke In the highest terms of the university and Its work and said that he was heartily In favor of giving the school the $125,000 per year in order that the state may have an institution v. orthyv of the name.. The action of the State Federation i? merely a recommendation but It will doubtless be followed by a ma jority of the labor union men. Friends of the university are highly elated over the federation's action. And It is right and proper the workingmen should work In harmony with the effort to build up a great free university in Oregon, declares the Eugene Guard. With no tuition fees to pay and the cost of living very moderate ,the laborer's son or daugh ter who Is ambitious and willing to work may easily procure a collegiate education In Oregon. A majority of the students now en rolled are working their way through school, and will come out of it well equipped for any profession or busi ness they may choose to enter. Close up the university, or circum scribe its usefulness by the allowance of only a niggardly support and the opportunity to educate themselves will be taken from thousands of Ore gon boys and girls whose parents are not able to send them to institutions outside of the state. The organized workingmen are right In standing for higher education with, in the reach of all classes, and sup ported by every fair-minded citizen, in any walk of life, who is interested in the growth and prosperity of Ore gon and wants to see its boys and g.rls given every possible opportunity for educating and fitting themselves for the serious business of life. MRS. EDDY FOR A NAVY. The following remarkable admission from Mrs. Mary Baker G. Eddy, head of the Christian Science church, on the necessity of large navies to prevent war. Is significant In view of the fact that she has always been optspoken for peace, an advocate of arbitration, an opponent of war In any form. In the last Issue of the official organ of the Christian Science church, she says: For many years I have prayed daily that there be no more war, no more barbarous slaughtering of our fellow beings, prayed that all the peoples on earth and the islands of the sea have one God, one mind, love God supreme ly, and love their neighbor as them selves. National disagreements can be, and should be arbitrated wisely, fairly and fully settled. It is unquestionable, however, that at this hour the arma ment of navies Is necessary, for the purpose of preventing war and pre serving peace among nations. JAPAN IS PRETTY BUSY. Poor Japan Is blamed for every thing, and of that for which she can not be blamed she is suspected. She ha Korea, and Is accused of wanting to gobble all of Manchuria. It has been said she plans the ac quisition of the Philippines and Ha waii, and now the premier of Aus tralia suggests that Japan Intends to assume the aggressive and attempt to conquer the whole of that so-called continent If Japan makes an attempt for any one or all of the territories she Is said to covet she will have a rather stren uous time, and Just at present she has plenty to do at home and In Korea. That Japan will eventually attempt tc extend her dominions is altogether probable, but It is very doubtful If at present the mikado Is sighing for more worlds to conquer. GEER TOOK THE MONEY.

LEE WAS APPOINTED." The Pendleton Tribune says that the editor of the East Oregonlan rode in to Oregon on a pass and has. been "deadheading It" ever since. Talk ubout "deadheading," It Is cruelly in sinuated that T. T. Geer, editor of the Tribune, has been "deadheading" on the railroads of, Oregon for the past 30 years. In fact, there Is no record of him, ever having purchased a rail road ticket. The railroad pass Is a two-edged sword, when used by such slippery politicians as T. T. Geer as a weapon against some one else. Let us have Mr. Geer's railroad pass rec ord, since the matter has been broach ed by his own paper. How many miles has Mr. Geer traveled on Ore gon rullroads without a pass? THE MARSEILLAISE. This French song of the commune was inspiration for the New York riot on Saturday. Ye sons of freedom, wake to glory! Hark! Hark! what myriads bid you rise! Your children, wives and grandslres hoary, Behold their tears and hear their cries! Shall hateful tyrants, mischiefs breeding, With hireling hosts, a ruffian band, Affright and desolate the land. While peace and liberty lie bleed ing? To arms! to arms! ye brave! The avenging sword unsheath; March on! march on! all hearts re solved. Now, now the dangerous storm Is rolling, Which treacherous kings confed erate raise. The dogs of war, let loose, are howl ing. And lo! our fields and cities blase; And shall we basely view the ruin, While lawless force, with guilty stride, Spreads desolation far and wide. With crimes and blood his hands ' imbruing, To arms! to arms! ye brave! etc O Liberty! can man resign thee, Once having felt thy generous flame? Can dungeons, bolts or bars confine thee? Or whips thy noble spirit tame? Too long the world has wept bewail ing That falsehood's dagger tyrants wield, But freedom Is our sword and shield. And all their arts are unavailing. To arms! to arms! etc. THE GREATER RKSl'RRFXTIOX. From day to day Impassive fates un roll The things we see and dimly com prehend; Hut death's own secret all the years defend Shall ever potter mend the broken bowl? Perchance from It the earth must claim her dole. Yet. oh, might we, when thus our thoughts attend. Forget the body praying God to send The greater resurrection of the soul! Soul cannot die? Its essence is di vine? Soul cannot die, but It afar can fare, . And drink the drink and eat the food of swine. Then must It learn to see Itself and and quail. Then must it break its heart In ut ter prayer. For that rebirth which only can avail. James Leroy Stockton. THE LONELY TREE. Like a hermit from the wood Stands a tree In solitude. In its shade tired travelers rest; For a canopy o'erhead; In its arms sweet song birds nest, In Its shade tired travelrs rest; Noble, grand, protecting, free, Is this solitary tree. King of trees, apart it stands, Monarch of the forest lands; To perfection has It grown, Stronger that It stands alone; Solitude has been Its friend, Ridding It aspire, extend; It could not so mighty be Were It not a lonely tree. Storms may heat; It firmly stands, Outward reaching It expands; Smaller srrowths cannot Intrude On Its roval solitude. Calm courageous, strong, upright, Faelnir ever toward the light. , Lonely soul to nature turn From tM tree a lesson learn. Exchange. The r'vers we ffshed In when a boy are nothing but creeks now.

OBSTINATE ULCERS MAY LEAD TO CANCER There is no difference, at first, in the appearance of a cancerous and common ulcer, and for this reason every sore that is obstinate or wo in healing should excite suspicion, for the sore ia nothing more than ths exter nal evidence of a polluted blood, and if allowed to remain may degenerate into Cancer. Efforts to heal the ulcer by meant of salves, plasters and other external remedies always result in failure.because such treatment can have no possible effect on the blood, where the deadly germs and morbid matter form, and are carried through the circulation to the place. No sore or Ulcer can exist without a predisposing internal cause, and the open, discharging nicer or festering old sore will continue to eat deeper into the surrounding flesh as long as a polluted, germ-infected circulation discharges Its impur ities into it.

"Breeders are finding out that size l( not the onlv thing to be desired. The big horse Is good in his place as work horse but he Is usually a poor tad horse. "The Portland and other city mar kets are clamoring now for a high- grade carriage horse and our brooders have nothing to meet this demand.
