" John Finley. THE FEDERAL BUILDING. There is a lot of activity In bidding for the federal building site In Pen dleton and numerous excellent sites are on the market. The government should be able to secure a central lo cation, convenient to all parts of the city for a reasonable price and it is hoped that every available piece of property is entered to give the widest scope to the choice. The government is not going to stick to the exact dimensions of the tract advertised for. If a central Jo cation, which will always be in the business center of the city, can be se cured, a few feet one way or the other will not matter and it is hoped that all the available lots and blocks are listed. This U to be a permanent fixture In the city. It is not for a day or a year for all time and It should belocated right and made a real pub lic convenience, and not a public ruisance by being placed out of town or at an Inaccessible point. This is to be Pendleton's first gov ernment gift and it should be a mat ter of pride for all time to come. So let us locate it right. HOP LAND FOR FRUIT. A great howl has been sent up by Portland brewers that prohibition Is killing the hop Industry in Oregon. Why have Willamette valley and Yak ima hopgrowers plowed up their hop fields before prohibition was voted? If it was such a profitable business and yielded such an income why d!d not hopgrowers continue to grow hops until prohibition actually killed their market? Instead of growing hops In the midst of a saloon district, Yakima growers have plowed up their fields and planted them to fruit. On the hop cr"p they secured an Income from a valuation of about $100 per acre for their land. In fruit the same land yields an income on a valuation of from 1500 to $1000 per acre. Does this look as though prohibi tion had killed the hop Industry? How many Willamette valley growers will keep land In hops with a value of from $75 to $125 per acre when the same land In berries and fruit can be Increased In value four and five fold? dishes uses a liberal supply of red pepper. Therefore, if Mr. 'Wutterson has a "fad," It Is that of an epicure an. One summer afternoon he landed at the Battery In New York after a few days' stay on Coney Island, He remarked to a friend who accom panied him that they each needed a new straw hat. "Now," said Mr. Watterson, "it Is reckless extravagance to buy a straw hat up town on Broadway when we can get one down here on Sixth ave nue, Just as good, for half the money." His friend agreed and they purchased hats in a down town store, after which Mr. Watterson said, "Now we will have dinner." His friend acquiesced in tne suggestion, saying that they could also get dinner down town for a great deal less than up town. Mr. Watterson simply glared, and exclaim ed, '.'So, sir. I can stand a down town hat, but not a down town dinner." On another occasion Mr. Watterson gave a little dinner at the Waldorf Astoria. As Is his usual custom, he interviewed the chef and particularly dictated the several dishes he desired, and made some suggestions as to their preparation. The chief triumph of the dinner was to be the soup, some thing new and rare In the way of potage, and most delicate in flavor. When the soup was served Mr. Wat terson expatiated on Its goodness and surety to tickle the palate. Just about this time, to his disgust and conster nation, he observed one of his guests empty a spoonful of sauce in his soup. In telling a friend of It after wards he said, "That chap will be mighty hungry before I give him an other dinner." WATTERSON'S "CRANKY" DIET. O. O. Stealey writes an Interesting sketch for Success magazine on the 'cranky" diet of Henry Watterson, the great Louisville editor. Of all the public men of the many I have met, Henry Watterson is the most fastidious so far as his stomach is concerned, says Mr. Steadley. If he cannot supply it with the food he thinks it need or craves, he will let It go empty until he can. I have known him to go for two days when In out of the way places, without eat ing, because he could not get what he wanted. He Is not so much a big eater as he la a choice eater, and In all of his HISTORY OF TEMPERANCE. In 1S08 there was organized in the town of Moreau, X. Y., the first tem perance society of which there is any reliable history. It was called the Union Temperance society of Moreau and Northumberland of Saratoga county. The moving spirit In the organiza tion was Dr. Billy J. Clark. In his work of ministering to the sick he had exceptional opportunities for ob serving and studying the effects upon the people of the drink habit, and be came greatly roused upon the subject. The Increase and marked disastrous effect of the habit pressed heavily up on his heart. During the winter of 1808, at a court of common pleas, he attempted to organize a central county temper ance society, but without success. All the members of both bar and bench pronounced the proposed project vis. lonary and Impracticable. But Dr. Clark was not discouraged. On a stormy night In the spring of 1S08, after a day of toll and anxiety among his patients, dripping with rain and covered with mud, he uncer emoniously entered the parsonage of his pastor, abruptly accosting the pas tor with the words: "Sir! We shall become A community of drunkards unless something is speedily done to arrest the progress of Intemperance." As a result of his agitation, a meet ing was called to form a temperance society. At the public house of Cap tain Peter Mawney, of Clark's Cor ners, resolutions were adopted, the chief of which was that, "In the opin ion of this meatlng It Is proper, prac tical and necessary to form a temper ance society In this place; the chief object of this society Is wholly to ab stain from ardent spirits." Dr. Billy Clark was elected secre tary. Hon. Sidney Bersy was presi dent. To celebrate the 100th anniversary of the founding of this "first society" a World's Temperance Centennial con gress will be held at Saratoga, near Moreau, this week. All temperance societies throughout the entire world will participate In this unique cele bration, also all churches and many other organizations. SMILE AND WAIT. One of the hardest, and yet one of the most useful lessons we can ever learn, Is to smile and wait after we have done our level best. It Is a finely trained mind that can struggle with energy and cheerful ness toward the goal which he can not see. But he Is not a great philos opher who has not learned the secret of smiling and waiting. A great many people can smile at difficulties who cannot wait, who lack patience; but the man who can both smile and wait, If he has that tenac ity of purpose which never turns back wift surely win. The fact Is, large things can only be done by optimists. Little successes are left to pessimistic people who can not set their .teeth, clench their fists, and smile at hardships or misfortunes and patiently wait Smile and wait there are whole volumes In this sentence. It Is so much easier for most people to work than to wait Enough power Is going to waste In tho Umatilla river every day to oper ate from 200 to 400 miles of electric lines In Umatilla county. Enough capital can be brought together In the county to start the lines and traffic In abundance Is awaiting them, so why are they not In operation? Is there any good reason why they are not? Walla Walla' is raising $200,000 In the city and county as her part, of Whitman's $2,000,000 endowment. Umatilla county should yield at least $50,000 for an endowment fund for Pendleton academy. This Institution Is to Umatilla what Whitman Is to Walla Walla. Home pride Is-ns strong here as It Is in Walla Walla. Three or four of the sheep kings of Umatilla county were sheep herders 15 years ago. .The same pathway to a fortune Is open today. There Is no need for any man leaving the county to seek a livelihood elsewhere. REINCARNATION. In lonely ways of dim forgotten lands, Ah, do you not recall how once we went? Did we not gaze, and hold each other's hands, In utter ecstacy of sheer content? As for what we said we said but nothing: The naked truth was ours, that needs no clothing. Strange flowers were near us name less to me now And strange old cities were they quick or dead? We met we two the when or why or how Matters no more. That golden hour Is fled, But ineffaceable Its glory lingers. As melodies survive the primal sing' ers. And you? The moment eyes encoun tered eyes, . Yours were alight with memories and with dreams. You are mine, all mine; you know It. O be wise. Ere over all our Past and Present streams, And saps our secret chains of Joy and wonder, And whelms, and whirls us, Impotent, asunder. Listen. In visions I will come tonight And seek with you those old mys terious lands, And we shall see, In the gray uncer tain light. Do you remember? where the tern pie stands. The desolate temple of some faith un known. The sunset fading on Its solemn stone. And we will never leave those lands again, But all that should have been for us, shall be: Reality foregone, dreams shall remain. And sweet oblivion cover you and me. Dear all, renounce all come! . . . I do not doubt you I who have waited centuries without you. . Pall Mall Gazette. HEAR ME) DEAR EARTH! Hear me, dear Earth! I long to feel thy warm sweet breath Caress my feverish", aching brow And draw me back from death. Hear me, dear Earth! . And let thy Inward, pulsing fire Inspire my soul with strength nnd love. To tune my earthly lyre. Hear me, dear Earth! Arouhd this frail and mortal clay Enclose thy tender, loving arms And rest me for today. Hear me, dear Earth! Upon thy welcome breast I lie Content, while beauteous stellar worlds Speed on and, hurrying die. Tell me, dear Earth! When swee toned bells their vespers chime Upon the silent evening air With melody sublime, The end of Life; Why soars the bird against the sky, Deluged In light, with bursting song Of Joyous mlnlstrelsy? Hear me, dear Earth! Thy heart sings far beyond the night And laughs at time and boundless space Teach me to read aright. Perry Relgelman In Salem States, man. OLDEST MAN LrVTNG. The oldest man living Is probably the negro Stauman, who was re cently exhibited In London. He Is said to be 146 years old. It has been proved, that when, 75 years ago he entered Into the service of the Cape Colony he was already a very old man. His daughter died In 1894 at the age of 90. Stauman was born In 1760, nine years before Napoleon. He Is still In full possesion of his physi cal and mental faculties. ONE CITY WITH NO TAXES. Orson, In Sweden, has no taxes.

Debs, the socialist lead er, tells the following story on him self: "I was to address a ruoilc meeting and there was Intense prejudice against me, so the young man who had to Introduce me thought he would try to disarm It. " 'Debs Is hated by some people," he said, 'because he has been In strikes. This Is not right. It Is the law of nature to defend " yourself.
