For the sad old earth must bor row Its mirth. But has trouble enough of Its own. S;ng, and the hills will answer; Sigh, it Is lost on the air; The echoes bound to a Joyful sound, But shrink from voicing care. Rejoice, and men will seek you; Grieve, and they turn and go. They want" full measure of all your pleasure, But they do not need your woe. Be glad, and your friends are many; Be sad, and you lose them all. There are none to dllne your nectar'd wine, But alone you must drink life's gall. Feast, and your halls are crowd ed; Fast, and the world goes by. Succeed and give, and It helps you live, But no man can help you die. There is room in the halls of pleasure For a large and lordly train. But .one by one we must all file on 4 Through the narrow aisles of pain. a) Ella Wheeler Wilcox. QUESTIONS FOR PENDLETON. If three combined harvesters can be turned out in a few months in Pendleton by a man with no means, why cannot 50 machines be turned out here in the course of a season, by a company having plenty of means? The manufacturer' of these three machines has refused orders beacuse he lacked capital and facili ties fir turning out more machines. If this condition existed in Spokane, Walla Walla or any other northwest city a factory would be t-.rtc ! ' : cal capital within 24 hours. But Pendleton is too prosperous, too' in dependent. That is why we have no pay roll. That is why we have no .permanent laborers at work here every' day In the year. Pendleton ctpital simply will not get under the proposition which would build up Pendleton. Why cannot Pendleton have a com b'ned harvester factory? There is a roarkf-t here for the machines. This L: the market. The wheat belt sur rrunds Pendleton. Freight bills would be saved, a good payroll would be built up here and there is no reason why 50 men are not employed-here In that industry. Any one of the bank3 of Pendleton : could finance this enterprise and put it on Its feet and could make a Jiand Bome income from the investment. The machines are wanted here. Or ders have been refused this year be cause the inventor and manufacturer, working barehanded and alone, could not turn out the orders. Did anybody ever hear of Just such another situation as is found in this rich and fortunate city? Hundreds of combined harvesters needed; plenty of labor, skill and genius to invent and manufacture the machines; plen ty of idle capital In Pendleton banks and yet harvesters are shipped 700 miles from Stockton, Cal., to this city and county. RETURNING GOOD TIMES. As the railroads were the first tor fall Into the financial slough of de apond .last fall, there should be loud rejoicing over the accumulating evi dence of returning prosperity to the transportation companies. . For ex ample, the Los Angeles Express cites the $100,000,000 bond issue of the Union Pacific which has Just been ar- i ranged by Mr. Harrlman. A few montha ago that gentleman petulantly replied to a modest inquiry from a newspaper man: "Everybody la trying to finance the Union Paci fic." He further declared the com pany only needed $25,000,000, but added that the amount would be doubled to resume development and put people at work. But this Incident, however, must take a back seat while mention is made of a remarkable tale from Texas, In which prosperity and hard times are strangely blended. The railroads of the Lone Star state, with a gravity of demeanor which the oc casion seemed to justify, have report ed that their gross earnings have de creased J S. 000,000 in the past nine months. This Is a big pile of money t" lose, but half of It has been found by the Texas railroad commission. That able body of public officials say thaf 60 per cent of this alleged de crease Is a mere figment of Imagina tion, a hallucination due to the new system of bookkeeping ordained and established by the Interstate com merce commission. This saving of $4,000,000 should encourage the Texas railroads to face their burdens with less gloom and de pression of spirit and they should re gard it as an omen of returning pros perity. Incidentally it might be re marked that if the Texas railroad commission ever finds Itself out of a Job there should be no dificulty in finding ready employment In Wall street. MONEY TALKS. A. S. Tearson, the well knowr. Freewater real estate dealer and promoter of the electric lines in that vicinity, told the East Oregonlan a little prohibition story while In the city this week which is worth re peating. It U a plain business story; a story of dollars and cents. There is no sentiment In It Mr. Pearson Is not a sentimental man. He is not a prohibitionist. But he has been "shown" a few things by the result of prohibition in Freewater. ! When Freewater had three saloona and was run wide open Mr. Pearson had three buildings rented in that town at $38.50- per month, each. He like many others, thought that per haps -prohibition would "kill" Free water and was naturally opposed to the prohibition movement because he felt that It was the best policy I) license saloons and make them help pay expenses. And he thought it was good business sense to have them. But how ho don't believe that way. Since the saloons have been abolished in Freewater the rent on Mr. Pear sin's three buildings has Increased until today he is receiving $70 per month for the same buildings which two years ago with three saloons in the town were only bringing him $3S.50 per month. So he has lost all faith in the loud assertions of saloon men and certain wavering business men, that prohibi tion "kills" a town. ' And In that same vicinity where two and three years ago with saloons in Freewater, land was selling for from $40 to $75 per acre in the irri gated belt, land is now selling for from $150 to $300 and $400 per acre. It is the same land, the same town, the same county and state. Money talks. Let us "get busy." CARLYLE ON OREGON POLITICS. The Catholic Sentinel of Portland, says some pertinent things on the po litical reformation of Oregon and quotes that arch-philosopher, Thomas Carlyle, to support Us assertions. The Sentinel quotes the following paragraph from Carlyle's French Revolution: "Know this also, that out of a world of unwise nothing but uriwlsdom can bo made. Arrange it, contsltutlon build it, sift It through ballot boxes 6s thou wilt, It Is and remains an un wisdom, the new prey of new quacks and unclean things, the latter end of It slightly better than the beginning. Who can bring a wise thing out of unwisdom? Not. one." And then the Portland paper ap plies this to Oregon politics in the fol lowing pointed manner: The voters of Oregon on June 1 adopted a number of measures de signed to retain Ip the people a great er amount of political power than they have heretofore enjoyed. Back of this legislation and much other legislation adopted in Oregon during the past few years, Is an hon est protest against machine politics and the betrayal of the people by a corrupt gang. This spirit of revolt against Intolerable conditions cannot be too highly commended. But bound up with this legislation there 1 also to be found a fallacy. This fallacy consists In believing that evil political conditions can be en tirely reformed by legislative enact ment In omitting from, the program of reform all Insistence on the neces sity of Individual morality Legisla tive reform must remain a one-sided movement until combined with moral reform. The French revolution . offers the classic example of failure in mere legislative reform. We have prefixed to these remarks Carlylo's explana tion of that historic failure. APPLE TREES ON BROADWAY. One of the few remaining monu mental trees of New Tork stands In Grace Church yard, at Broadway and Tenth street. It is an old common country applo tree, but It keeps green the memory of one Mynheer Brevoort, Dutchman and farmer. Nearly 100 years ago the Brevoort acres spread out where the church now stands When New York began to stretch out the city planned a straight thor oughfare and named it Broadway. The surveyors got as far as Tenth street, wnerc their progress was stopped by the Brevoort gate. "Keep off my land!" shouted old Brevoort in most forclbkle Dutch, confronting them with a dog and a stick. The surveyors scaled the fence and marched off through the next man's field to the left. The result was that the plans for a straight main thoroughfare were un made by old Brevoort's threatening stick and tongue. That is why there is a bend In the street at this point. and why a man is kept there greasing the trolley slot, why teamsters tug their reigns and speeding automobiles slow up! Grace church came Into possession of the land In later years and in grat itude the churchmen are preserving the old tree to commemorate Bre voort's memory. THE n.RnER COMPLIED. Old Grumps was wont to boast that he knew how to "knock the breath out of a barber." and thus Insure a quiet shave. Qf late, however, he has said remarkably little about his "infallible system," and perhaps the following little Incident has something to do with his silence. The other afternoon he entered a strange barber's shop, flopped down In the vacant chair and following his usual custom handed a printed card to the "mug polisher." This Is how It read: Hints to the Barber. 1. 2. 3. 4. 6. 6. 7. 8. 9. I want a shave. I don't want my hair cut. I don't want a shampoo. I don't want a massage. I've a mole on my chin. Another on my top lip. I don't want telling about "cm. I don't want talking to death. I want a shave and silence. The barber read the "hints," smil ed, and when he nodded to a conspic uous notice on the wall, Grumps near ly fainted. Here's a copy of It: Notice. "The proprietor, being deaf and dump, hopes his customers will ex cuse any seeming reluctance to enter Into conversation." THE PESSIMIST, Nothing to do but work; Nothing to cat but food: Nothing to wear but clothes; To keep one from going nude. Nothing to breathe but air; -Quick a9 a flash 'tis gone, Nowhere to fall but off; Nowhere to stand but on. Nothing to comb but hair; . Nowhere to sleep but bed; Nothing to weep but tears; Nothing to bury but dead. Nothing 'to sing but songs; Ah, well, Alas. Alack! Nowhere to go but out; Nowhere to come but back. Exchange. MoOisJIn on Trial. The trial of W. D. McCaslin, who was arrested In Spokane for the mur der of E. F. Zaspell In Wasco county, Oregon, was taken up In the district court at Heppner Thursday. Saloon Men Fined. Four saloon men of Colton were fined J50 and costs each In the Justice court there Thursday for keeping their saloons open Sunday. The Farmer's Wife b very careful about her churn. She scalds it thoroughly after using, and gives It a sun bath 'o sweeten it. She knows that If her cu :ru is sour it will taint the butter that Is nade in It. The stomach Is a churn. In :.!! stomach and digestive and nutritive tracts are performed pro cesses which are almost exactly like the churning of letter. Is It not apparent then that If this stomach-churn is foul It makes foul all which is put Into It? The evil of a foul stomach Is not alone1 the bad taste In the mouth and the foul breath caused by It, but tho corruption of the pure current of blood and the dissem ination of disease throughout the body. Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery makes the sour and foul stom.u'h sweet It does for the stomach what tho washing and sun bath do for tho churn absolutely removes every tainting or corrupting ele ment. In this way It cures blotches, pimples, eruptions, scrofulous swellings, sores, or open eating ulcers and all humors or diseases arising from bad blood. If you have bitter, nasty, foul taste In your mouth, coated tongue, foul breath, are weak and easily tired, foel depressed and despondent, ha ve frequent headaches, dizzy attacks, gnawing or distress in stom ach, constipated or irregular bowels, sour or bitter risings after eating and poor appetite, these symptoms, or any consider able number of them, indicate that you are suffering from biliousness, torpid or lazy liver with the usual accompanying Indi gestion, or dyspepsia and their attendant derangements. The best agents known to medical sci ence for the cure of the above symptoms and conditions, as attested by tho writings of leading teachers and practitioners of all the several schools of medical practice, have been skillfully and harmoniously combined In Dr, i'lerce's Golden Medical Discovery. That this Is absolutely true will be readily proven to your satisfaction If you will but mall a postal card request to Dr. E. V. Pierce, Buffalo, N. Y., for a Tree copy of his booklet of extracts from the standard medical authorities, giving the names of all the Ingredients entering Into his world-famed medicines and show ing what the most eminent medical of the age sty f them.

ANY remedy that benefits digestion strengthens tho nerves. The nerve centers require nutrition. If the digestion Is impaired, the nerve centers become anemic, and indigestion is tho result. Peruna h not a nervine nor a stimulant It benefits the nerves by benefiting digestion. Peruna frees the stomach of catarrhal congestions and normal digestion la the result. In other words, Peruna goes to the bottom of the whole difficulty, when the disagreeable symptoms disappear. Mrs. J.
