VHP aVlLABEl SaSai I am resolved to Jo my work, eagerly, joyously;' confident that the Knower within me directs all my thoughts aright; my whole body and mind are obe- dietit to my will arid do me glad service. When I work In this spirit I ally myself with the sources of health, with all the streams and currents of pure , and noble ideas. I arise without painful efforts Into serene altl- tti.los of Truth. I accomplish 4 that for which I was sent into th world. To this end I will commit my thoughts unto my Lord, knowing that my work shall be established. Neither seed time nor harvest shall fall me: for though there be diver- sitles of labor, yet It Is the same erea: God which worketh all in nil. Florence Morse Klngsley. NOW. FOR NOVEMBER. The republican ticket Is nominated, the platform sent forth. What will the people do with them? Taft received such a large majority pf the votes cast in the national con vention that it would seem that he Is the popular choice. But the Taft del egations were chosen in most of the states like they were in Oregon by a select few delegates who run the conventions, fixed the slates and car ried out their one-sided programs with a high hand. Taft is not yet and never will be the choice of the rank and file of the re publican party for president , not withstanding his nomination by a large majority. The republican platform declares for many progressive, splendid prin ciples of government, but that will not reconcile the people to Taft. Th platform promises a continuation of the Roosevelt policies, but that does not make Taft popular. The people have never wanted Taft. Had Theodore Roosevelt consented to make the race for the presidency in 190S, there would have been no doubt about the success of the repub lican ticket. The people wanted Roosevelt. His work is unfinished. He could do more than any other one man In the country to carry forward the popular plans which he has in augurated. But with Taft at the head of the ticket it Is no sure thing that the next president will be a republican. Thousands of sincere republicans in every state will vote for Bryan be fore thy will for Taft and it looks like a democratic success. Taft is a fat, good-natured, aristo cratic, fortunate, wealthy, highly ed ucated good fellow. He never Initiat ed anything worth mentioning. He has been surrounded by wealth and affluence al! his life. He is not In sympathy with the common people. He has b;n nominated, but It was a cut and dried program and the people cannot accept It with the hearty good will and enthusiasm which usually accompanies the launching of a suc cessful campaign. The platform Is all right, but does It mean anything with Taft at the head of the ticket? THE WIFE'S RIGHTS. It must be said to the shame of Or egon that her laws give the wife the least protection In her property rights of any state in the west and the an nouncement that an effort will be made to remedy this absurd and un just condition of affairs, at the next session of the legislature, Is greeted with satisfaction by every lover of Justice. The Oregon Dally Journal says of the movement started by State Sena tor Beach of Multnomah county, to secure legislation Intended to protect the wife In her property rights: Should a wife have an absolute right to one-half of the community property after the death of her hus band where she lias assisted through years of hardship and toll In the ac cumulation of that property? State Semi tor S. C. Beach believes that sho should and with that belief will Intro duce a bill In the next legislature seeking to change the existing law as It stands. At present a wife has no protection under the law, or practically none. Senator He.-u-h has been driven to the serious consideration of the subject by instances of this fact which have como under his observation. In one case a couple had grown old in Tort land and wore well known to the sen ator. For years they had struggled and saved until they had accumulated a goodly competence, and this was done In large part through the wise management and forethought of the wife. The husband died and left a will which divided the property among his bi others and sisters, leaving the aged wife with a bare pittance. As a result of tho Injustice and tho worry over It the woman lost her reason and Is now- confined In a California asylum. Other instances, perhaps not so pa thetic, but still unjust, have been ob served by the senator, and as a result he expects to Introduce the bill and make a hard fight for it during the 1909 session of the legislature. For some reason the chief opposi tion to the bill comes from the law yers of the state, many of whom urge the peculiar objection, for them, that the passage of the bill would cause much litigation. The senator, how ever, will make an effort to secure its passage and .enactment Into law. THE OltEGOX PLAN. That "the Oregon plan" of legisla tion Is looked upon with favor by some of the leading states In the Union, is shown by the expressions from various prominent newspapers in the east. , The Chicago News has Just published a very favorable review of the "Oregon plan" and urges the citizens of Illinois to look Into this progressive plan of legislation. So the flings and abuses of the old machine which Is opposed to the peo ple's rule will not daunt progressive people elsewhere In their determina tion to follow Oregon. The News says: Illinois citizens would do well to give consideration to the "Oregon plan" of enabling voters to express on election day their preference for United States senator. Under the Illi nois direct primary law the party voter henceforth will be permitted at primary elections to Indicate his choice among the different candl aates of his party. The Oregon plan goes farther, giving the voter on elec tion day tho right of choice among the candidates of nil parties. Oregon held Its state election last Monday and the' republicans were generally successful. The legislature will be largely republican on joint ballot. Under ordinary circumstan ces this would be expected to Insure the election of a republican as United S't-ites senator. At Monday's election, however, Oregon's popular governor, Mr. Chamberlain, the democratic candi date, for United States senator, re ceived about 1600 more votes than Mr. Cake, the republican aspirant for that office. It Is probable, therefore, that Governor Chamberlain will be chosen by the republican legislature tr represent Oregon In the senate. The legislature, of course, Is not legally bound to act in accordance with the popular desire as expressed at the polls last Monday. By the constitution of the United States the legislature Is made , the agency for choosing senators and therefore from a legal point of view It is free to fol low its own inclinations in the mat ter, regardless of any restraints Im posed by popular opinion, however manifested. A majority of the newly-elected members of the Oregon legislature, however, pledged themselves before election to choose as senator the can didate receiving the largest popular vote for that office. Any state can put the Oregon plan into operation by enacting a law pro viding that the names of the various candidates for senator may be placed on the ballot to be voted on election day. Its successful operation, how ever, requires In addition a public sentiment which will oblige candidates for the legislature to pledge them selves In good faith to carry out the popular will as expressed at the elec tion. The direct advantage of this plan is that It enables the people actually to choose their representatives In the national senate. There Is an Indirect benefit which probably will prove even more Important. If the voters choose the senator they will feel free to cast their ballot with little regard to par tisanship when supporting candidates for the legislature. No voter then will support an unworthy aspirant for leg islative office on the ground that his success Is necessary to the election of a particular man as United States sen. a tor. ;nosrs tus were mo. Eminent financiers may hold thai there is no humor In finance, but the up-to-date methods revealed by the li. vesication of some of the San Fran cisco banks which failed during the last few months might lead one to sus poet that the financiers, no matter how eminent they are, did not know what they were talking about. In one case, it appears, the direc tors, before milking an Investment, would assemble In a private room, and then call In a trance medium, who, when under control, Would give them advice, supposedly from Collis P. Huntington's shade, or from the spectre of Jay Gould. The funny part comes In when It Is explained that the chuckleheuds followed the advice, but the deposit ors, perhaps, do not see the humor of the thing. THE CAIJi TO REST. The sunset's banners fade far down the west; Twilight and darkness and the Evening Star! O, Soul of mine, heed thou God's call to rest Sent to thee from those star-strewn Heavens afar. From weary heart and brain, loose thou the bands That bind thee to thy toll while It is day, Thy Heaven ?-appointed task leave In His hands Who holds the planets on their en circling way. While on thine eyelids dewy feather ed night Soft wings shall press, the stars their paths will keep; The Universe swing safely in the sight Of him whose eye doth slumber not nor sleep. Rest, sleep; entrusting to His heart of love All cares, all fears, the garish day's alarms, The dome of Heaven thy canopy above, And underneath the Everlasting Arms. Helen Ekln Starrett, from "Crocus and Wlntergreen." ROMANCE OF BURIED PICTURES The romantic story of the picture purchased at a London auction, which an expert examination proved to be painted over a Rembrandt worth 140.000, Is curiously reminis cent of the discovery of a Corregglo under similar circumstances. A good many years ago two pic ture restorers, Lovera and Hunters pergh, bought at an art sale In Rome a number of old pictures In order to provide themselves with canvases for repainting. In the division of the spoils Hunterspergh received an In different picture of flowers on which he painted a study of a hea'd. . This picture he offered to Lovera, who on close examination found that the new ground scaled off, and that underneath were traces of a figure painted In a style that denoted the hand of a master. Replacing the scale, and concealing his discovery, he purchased the pic ture for little more than the value of the canvas. Removing the two grounds, he disclosed an exceedingly clever painting by Corregglo, which he sold to the Earl of Bristol for $1. 500. The supreme court has denied a rehearing In the case of the Spokane Stamp Works vs. Wm. Ridpath. The stamp works some time ago brought suit for an injunction to prevent Rid path cutting the wires which fur nished electricity for the stamp works In the Ridpath hotel building. The Injunction was denied by the supreme court and a rehearing was asked whirh has now been denied A Woman's Sack Eas many aches and pains caused by weaknesses and falling, or other displace ment, of the pelvic organs.
