He's nature's heir, and, he alone Has ripht and title to the throne! Not -wealth, nor yet a long de- scent Through many a famous line, Can give this power to mankind lent From Nature's hand divine! For with the call there comes the might, Of those who teach; or preach, or fight! Selected. TAX THE SPECULATOR. The attention of Assessor C. P. Strain of Umatilla county, and of the assessors of other eastern counties, Is called to the fact that timber land which cost the entrymen but '$2.50 per acre is being sold at from $1500 to $3000 per quarter section, or from four to eight times Its original cost. If this land is worth from $1500 to $3000 for purposes of speculation. It is also worth this much for pur poses of taxation. As several townships of this timber land have Just been entered In Uma tilla and adjoining counties, the ln creased taxes from this source should have a perceptible effect on the taxes of these counties. "Oh," say the owners, "this land Is Idle and there is no market for the timber. The real value of the land Is the government price, or $2.50 per acre." The value and earning capacity of property Is determined by the income it yields the owner and an Income Is not necessarily estimated by the number of dollars in coin it returns. If this land has Jumped up in value from $400 per quarter section to $3000 per quarter in two years, it had actually added that much wealth to the holdings of the owner, whether sold or held for greater advance In value. Every foot of this kind of land held for purely speculative purposes should be taxed on Its boasted market value and not on what It cost the entrymarl. This method of taxing speculative property will bring new industries to the county quicker than anything else. The owners will make the property productive rather than pay the tax on high values and get nothing In return from the idle land. . City lots held for speculation, tim ber land, irrigated land or any other property held purely for advancing values, should be made to pay an equal fhare of the public expense, with property In use. ISXT THIS RIGHT? Pendleton has now been dry for nearly a month and the people have had an opportunity to see -what pro hibition Is like. It Is not bad. During the past month Pendleton has been the same bustling little city It has always been. True, the police court has been quiet for there have been practically no arrests since the first of the month. A few men have left town and people traveling Main street no longer see the drunken, blear-eyed faces that once stared a them from the saloon fronts. Some of the saloon locations are still un occupied. But buflnees In general has been good. Merchants have found that the town Is not ruined. A few custom ers may have been lost, but for this the store men are recompensed by the fact that those who remain "have more money to spend with them. There are scores of men In this town who are now buying dryrooda and grocer itM with money which they formerly cquandered In saloons to the neglect of their loved ones ftnd their own degradation. ., For the future the outlook tu probably never brighter for Pendle. ton than at present. The city Is In line for a gravity water system and a city' park. A city hall Is being built and the town will soon have a splondid federal building. The lovee Is being strengthened so that there will be no further danger from floods nml the development of the nrld lands In the Hormlston-Echo country promises to brjng thousands of new people' Into the county. This being true. Isn't it time for the people of the city to forget that there was ever any contention and unite in the work for the future. To make Pendleton the town It really should be, and can be made, will re quire hard, unceasing, unselfish work on the part of her people. There should be no dissension In the ranks of those who are fighting for the city's good and any bitterness that may have resulted from the recent election should be burled deep in the graveyard of the past. Pendleton has no timefor further post mortem. There is work to be done for the fu ture and all good citizens should help. The Btones which some would hurl at others who differed from them in opinion should be used In building a greater Pendleton. A DEMONSTRATION FARM. Nothing would be more beneficial to Umatilla county at this time than a demonstration farm and If the re gents of the agricultural college are to establish any more stations, they should be Implored to start one here, To have the large wheat ranches of the county broken . into smaller ones Is the prayer of all and the hope of the county lies In the answering of this appeal. But the big ranches will be broken up when it has been shown that other crops may be raised with more profit than wheat. No sooner. Wlille here with the demonstration train the men from the agricultural college declared that annual crops may be raised In Umatilla county, and that summer fallowing Is a use less waste. They are doubtless right Tears ago there was but little diver sified farming In the Willamette - ley. At Institutes held In every com munity of that section the agricultu ral college men taught for years th gospel that was heard here this spring. Today the Willamette valley Is being devoted to Intensified farm ing and wheat raising is becoming a lost art. Will time not bring the same changes in eastern Oregon? In western Oregon the scientific agriculturists had the advantage of the experimental farm at Corvallis by means of which they were able to prove that what they taught was right. If they had a demonstration farm In Umatilla county perhaps they could do the same here. Such Is to be hoped and there Is so much at stake that the attempt should be made. Should it succeed Umatilla county would be converted from a giant checkerboard of wheat fields and summer fallow Into a paradise of small homes. WU TING FANG'S LITTLE JOKE. Wu Ting Fang, Chinese minister to the United. States, Is playing another one of the Jokes for which he Is fa mous, says the Salt Lake Herald. Wu Ting some time ago was credited with having made the statement that he had discovered a system of diet which would probably enable him to live for 200 years. A Boston man bi came curious and bit. He wrote the Chinese minister for the recipe for longevity, and received the following plan of dally procedure: "In answer to your letter request ing my plan of diet I. have to say as follows: (1) I have given up my breakfast, taking two meals a day, lunch and dinner. (2) Abstain from all flesh food;, my diet Is rice, or, when I go out to dinner, whole wheat bread, fresh vegetables, nuts and fruit; (3) I avoid all coffee, cocoa. tea, liquors, condiments and all rich foods; (4) I have given up salt also, because It Is found that salt makes one's bones stiff; (5) I masticate every mouthful of food thoroughly before It Is swallowed; (6) I don't drink at meals, but between meals or one hour after meals; (7) I practice deep breathing; (8) I take moderate exercise." Mr. Wu has Improved upon the Fletcher fad, which finds a remedy for every bodily 111 in complete mas- tlcaflon. The Fletcherltes eat many orms of food, but the Chinese mln. later permits only rice, and it witnout alt At'least a pinch of salt ahould be permitted for the recipe. Pendleton has a city council ot which ahe may feel proud. One ot the indications that its membership Is comprised of thinking men, men who do things, Is the fact that they do not always agree. It Is also a re freshing sight to see the chairman of the street committee out In his shirt sleeves at 10 o'clock at night, per sonally supervising the flushing of the streets, with the mayor on hand to see that no water Is wasted at a time when water Is a mighty scarce article. What the district fair commission needs right now is not more money or more enthusiasm, but a real, live, hustling man to get out among the farmers of Umatilla county to see that prize winning exhibits are col lected and saved. THERE IS NO FAILURE. (Thomas Speed Mosby In Success Magazine. There Is no failure. Life itselfs a song Of victory o'er death, and ages long Have told the story of triumphs wrought' Unending, from the things once held for naught. The battle's over; though defeated now, In coming time the waiting world shall bow Before the throne of Truth that's bullded high Above the dust of those whose ashes lie All heedless of the glorious fight they won When death obscured the light of vlct'ry's sun. There Is no failure. If we could but see Beyond the battle line; If we could but be ) Where battle-smoke does ne'er be cloud the eye. Then we should know that where these prostrate lie Aceoutered in habiliments of death Sweet Freedom's radiant form has drawn new breath The breath of life which they so nobly gave Shall swell anew above the lowly grave And give new life and hope to hearts that beat Like battle drums that never sound retreat. There Is no failure. God's Immor tal plan Accounts no loss a lesson learned for man. Defeat Is oft the discipline we need To save us from the wrong, or teach ing heed . To errors which would else more dearly cost A lesson learned Is ne'er a battle lost Whene'er the cause is right, be not afraid: Defeat Is then but victory delayed And e'en the greatest vlct'rles of th world Are often won when battle-flags are furled. They who He down with lambs shall arise with fleece. THE POWER OF MIND OVER BODY. (Orison Swett Marden, In Success Magazine.) We hear a great, deal about the power o fthe mind over the body. Why, the whole secret of life Is wrap ped up In It. We do not know the A, B, C of this great, mysterious power, though the civilized world Is rapidly awakening to Its transforming force. The prophet, the poet, the sage, from earliest times, have felt and recog nized it. "Be ye transformed by the renew ing power of your mind," Paul ad monished the Romans. ' "TIs the mind that makes the body rich," says Shakespeare. "What we commonly call man." writes Emerson, "the eat ing, drinking, planting, counting man, does not, as we know him, represent himself. Him we do not respect. But the soul whose organ he Is, would he let It appear through his action, would make our knees bend." Today even the prize fighter, the uneducated, as well as the educated, the man who lives on the animal plain even as the man who lives on the spiritual plane, In fact all sorts of people, are beginning to see that there Is some tremendous force back of the flesh which they do not un derstand. The rapid growth of the so-called New Thought movement shows how actively this Idea of man's ridden power Is working In the minds of - all classes. WOMEN IN UNIVERSITIES. Oonsul Thomas H. Norton, writing from Chemnitz, says that the question of admitting women to equal rights with men In the privileges of the Ger man universities is still far from be ing generally settled. He adds: The universities In Saxony and in the southern half of the empire Ba varia, Baden and Wurtemberg have all opened their doors to female stu dents, and granted them all academic rights, matriculation, graduation, etc. Others admit them only as visitors to lectures, but refuse to them all other privileges. The University of Berlin has adopted a compromise, refusing matriculation to women, but , allow ing them to attend courses of study as visitors, and also, with the approv al of their Instructors, to present themselves as candidates for the ex aminations leading to the doctor's de gree, y During the past winter the 21 Ger man universities enrolled 320 matrle-' ulated women, and 2504 female visit ors. There was an Increase over the preceding winter of 35 matriculates and of 399 visitors. The matriculates were divided among the eight uni versities, where they are allowed en trance, as follows: Munich, 125, Hei delberg, 65, Freiburg 63, Leipzig 36, Jena 20, Tubingen 9, Wurzburg 8, Er langen .i Diplomacy.

Washington Herald. . , When bad blood 49 caused from an infection of the circulation by the virus of Contagious Blood Poison, it usually shows in the form of ulcerated mouth and throat, copper-colored splotches on the body, swollen glands In the groin, falling hair, sores and ulcers, etc. These general symptoms, affecting all parts of the body, show how deeply poisoned the blood becotves, and emphasizes the dangerous character of the trouble.

Secretary Cortelyou was elaborat ing on his recent epigram, "Politics is a duty." "I don't mean by politics spoil- hunting and office-seeking. Politics Is a good and honorable word. It is a shame to have degraded It. We should try and uplift It again to Itb right place. "We don't want the word 'politics' to evoke the pictures of such a man as Hilary Harkness. "Hilary Harkness was a politician of the lowest type, and unsuccessful at that. His whole life was devoted to office-seeking; he spent 37 years vainly seeking a $5,000 office hours 10 to 2 while his wife and daughter supported him by keeping a candy shop.
