The ter.jer word forgotten, The letter you did not write, The flower you might have sent,- dear, Are your haunting ghosts to- night. . The stone you might have lifted Out of a brother's way. , The bit of he.irt.nme counsel, Tou were hurried too much to s.iy; The loving touch of the hand, dear.

For life is all too short, dear, And sorrow Is all too great, To suffer our slow compassion That tarries until too late, And It's not the thing you do, dear, It's the thing you've left un- done Which gives you the bitter heartache At the setting of the sun. Selected. PENDLETON'S PLACR In the list of cities doing building and having prospective building worK In view, published in the Pacific Builder ani Engineer of Seattle, Pendleton comes In for four good Items, as follows: City hall, now un der way costing $40,000; levee re pairs now under way, costing $3000; federal building In near future, cost ing $70,000. t These four items bring Pendletoji well to the heal of the list of north west cities doing building this season. It is an advertisement of which the city Is proud and will keep the eyes of the northwest on Pendleton, In fu ture as In the past. Contractors, builders, architects, material men and laborers all over the country read the Builder and En gineer and Pendleton's activity will reach thousands of people who read and think. SATISFIED, AS CSCAL. John Sharpe Williams, democratic congressional leader and senator elect from Mississippi, in answer to the question as to how the demo cratic ticket and platform suited him, said: "The democratic candidates and platform are perfectly satisfac tory to me, as usual." But there was no enthusiasm In this laconic interview. Mr. Williams didn't smile when he said It. The wholesale swallowing process by the Bryan forces at the Denver conven tion, In which not even the feet of any other interests were left sticking out of the maw of the Bryan machine, did not "set well" with Mr. Williams nor with thousands of other strong democrats throughout the country. No consideration was given the Ideals of such men as Henry Watter son, Judge Gray, Alton B. Parker, John Sharpe Williams and others who could be named. These men helped to make the democratic party and are now turned down. INTELLIGENT VOTING. The Kansas City Star gives voters of Kansas and Missouri some excel lent advice regarding the use of the direct primary law and this advice may be of Interest to Oregon voters where the primary law U in force. The Star says: How are you going to vote at the primaries la August? Not, for whom are you going to vote, but how? Will you vote Intelligently or unlntel-ligentlyT- The great American electorate Is not yet educated to the duty of pri mary voting. It will doubtless learn the lesson fast; but so far the people of Missouri and Kansas at least have had no experience In making direct nominations. The primary law Is right in principle, but Its enemies will be very glad If the first experiments result unfortunately. Thus, much flrpemls on the wisdom or discrimination shown In the selec tion of candidates of the several par ties at the fourth of August primaries. Obviously one cannot discriminate with good sense If one is not pretty well informed as to who the candi dates are and what their qualifica tions are: The country voters both In Kansas and Missouri will probably have the easier time as they will be confront ed by the fewer number of condidates for the several offices. In Kansas City, Mo., there are as .many as 10 aspirants for one county office. It might well puzz'.e a body of expert Investigators to choose the best qual ified man. The average voter's prob lem Is much more difficult. Find out all that you can about all of the candidates. But if you have not learned anything definite con cerning any of the candidates for some one nomination don't vote on that nomination. If a group of names under one office title on the ballot Is meaningless to you don't make a guess and choose one name at random. Pass that group up. The primary system will be worth less If It Is not accompanied by In telligent voting. TOO "NEAR BEER." It Is evident from the actions of a number of the drinkers of the stuff hi this city on .Saturday that the al leged "near beer" being sold by a number of former saloon men at their old stands, Is too "near beer" to pass the test of the prohibition law and there will be a wholesale cleaning out of these soft drink places If the law Is not observed. The people cannot and will not be fooled. They know as much as the saloon men and they have voted pro hibition on Umatilla county and it Is safe to say If the law Is violated that somebody will suffer for It. Judging from the heavy prohibition vote In this county the people mean business. It is safe to say that if the Issue were to be voted upon today it would carry by a majority of at least 1500 Instead of 700. If the law enforcement league re cently organized to help the officials enforce the law, mean business, it will have chemical tests of the alleg ed "near beer" made to satisfy a number of people who will have 'to be, "shown" before they can believe that it Is only "near beer." A law is a law and in the East Or egonlan s old-fashioned way, a law means what It says. The prohibition law prohibits the sale of intoxicating liquors and this means all Intoxicat ing liquors. Let us give this matter a fair test. The people have decreed it. And If the people mean business It will be easy to apprehend the culprits. The people are not vindictive and do not want to force the saloon men entire ly out of the county and state, but there must be law observance. WnAT WILL PORTLAND DO? The Portland Oregonian in com menting on a recent editorial in the East Oregonlan giving some of the happy results of prohibition, says: "A big town will never be a dry town and a dry town will newr be a big town. And In the meantime note the difference In growth of Pendle ton and Walla Walia, Pendleton be ing dry and Walla Walla wet." The Oregonlan's argument Is that a big city must have saloons as a part of its resources, then. And that un less a city has saloons It will never be a big city, regardless of its vital resources. The Oregonlan does not believe such argument as this. It Is making a "talk" to prevent prohibition in Portland". It Is not so blind to the true economic foundations of society as to make such statements for In telligent readers to accept. What will Portland, Spokane, Se attle and Tacoma do when the states of Oregon and Washington go dry, within a few years, as they are cer tain to do. Then we are to have no big towns and no good towns In these - two dry states, regardless of their matchless resources? It Is conceded by many conserva tive liquor men that Oregon would have adopted prohibition this year, had there been a state vote on the subject. What will Portland do when this awful catastrophe comes? Will she be no longer a good town nor a big town? Will she dwindle because of the loss of her 400 saloons? And what will Walla Walla do in a year or so, when the local option law goes into effect in Washington. The people will vote Walla Walla county dry as they did' Umatilla county. Conditions and citizenship are the same In the two counties. Then there will be no big towns and no good towns In the Inland em pire? What will people do with the bona fide resources of these coun ties? Allow them to languish be cause the saloon Is abolished? We shall see. There never has been a satisfactory explanation of the low prices of west ern wool prevailing this season. Last year the clips sold at from IS to 23 cents per pound. This year the same clips sold at one-half of these prices. The wool-consuming population Is In creasing each year. Woolen goods are as high on the markets as they were last year. The quulity of the wool Is just as good as ever. So why the low prices? The East Oregonlan has printed several alleged reasons fiom wool journals, but none of them have the right ring.

Neb., Is this, sent along by a correspondent of the New York World: "There Is a scheme on foot to give to Mr. Bryan the unanimous vote of the city of Lincoln If he Is nominated. If this is attempted It will be carried out. The Lincolnites have high city pride and if it Is decided proper to give Mr. Bryan all the votes in this campaign, it will be done. It would fare badly for any man who opposes. This seems to the townspeople a Just thing to do. Mr. Bryan is the best asset of the city. It thrives on his name. It has grown great under his patronage." A tremendous change must have come over Lincoln if this is true. It 1896 and 1900 Lincoln took pride in the fact that Mr. Bryan's city, Mr. Bryan's ward and Mr. Bryan's precinct went heavily republican. But perhaps Lin coln, after all these years, has be come grateful to "the commoner" for the way he had advertised It. A CHURCH NEWSPAPER. , If he had $10,000,000 he would put It Into the establishment of the kind of dally newspaper the church needs. At any rate, that Is what the Rev. Charles H. Parkhurst told the Con gregational club In Boston the other night. We must presume that he meant It, though he will probably never have the opportunity" to make the demonstration. Such a method of spending a large amount of mon ey would be no more wasteful than many other methods which have been devised and pursued with great as Idlty, while It clearly would be harmless. Naturally such a newspa per would be a missionary enterprise rather than a business venture, and other newspapers would not consider It a serious competitor any more than they' would so regard a church. In point of fact, such a Journal might perform a useful service, for the church and for the entire communi ty. New Bedford (Mass.) Standard. 2 "3 BLOOD POISON A SAFE HOME TREATMENT In S. S. S. nature Has provided a certain, safe, liome cure for. Contagions Blood Poison. It is a medicine made entirely of roots and herbs of recog nized blood-purifying value, and is the one medicine which is able to get down to the root of. the trouble nnd remove every particle of the virus, and at the same time benefit and build up the system and general health. No harmful effects ever follow its use, as is so often the case when strong min eral medicines are used. As soon as the system gets under the Influence of S S. S the disease begins to improve, and when the remedy has thoroughly purified the blood and driven out every trace of the poison, no signs of the trouble are ever seen again. The general manifestations of Contagious Blood Toisou such as falling hair, copper -colored spots, ulcerated mouth and throat, sores and ulcers, etc., are merely symptoms of the poisoned condi tion of the blood, and in most cases respond quickly to local treatment, while S. S. S. is doing the necessary work of cleansing the blood. Our "Home Treatment" book is of great assistance along this line. It is a complete guide for treating the trouble, containing instructions for the different stas of the disease, and also valuable suggestions about the local treatment, that will be most helpful in effecting a cure. We will be glad to send a c py of this book, free of charge, to any who desire it, and if special med cal advice is wanted our physicians will take pleasure in sup plying it without cost to the patient. If you are suffering. with Conta gious Blood I'oison you can cure yourself in the privacy of vour own home bv the use of S. S. S., an absolutely safe remedv.
