TI" editor of Colliers Weekly has keen urfin? young men to buy up the abandoned f3rms of the east, giving ju a reason that the public lands In the we.t are nearly all gone. This statement Is not exact, says an exchange. There are millions of un claimed lands throughout the west, jrt to be homesteaded, If desired, tm3 thousands of acres to be bought a) reasonable prlcea. The difficulty Is not in finding the fend. !ut in inducing the young men fc take up farm life. So long as coun try life f u'.s to attract and as long as Lty life holds out Increased lure, how It the problem to be met? "Collier's need not worry; there Is knj- of opportunity, east, north, jcsth and west, for the man who -ants to take up farm life, but where re the young men with such inten tions? Tt.e b.st solution of the problem is l turn the tide of Immigration farm ward .'ts much as possible. In the tit, in the arid districts, where farm ing is dune undVr unfavorable condi tion.1:, it is the foreigners who are anost successful. Weed the Incoming immigrants out of the cities and en tourage them to become farmers. OPEN YOm HEAHT AND PIT.SE. Of course no one can deny that economy is one of the virtues, but we lcust be careful not to close ourselves to every appeal for help, says the Cheyenne Tribune. If we are not lere on earth to assist our friends, to Slave sympathy for the unfortunate aiT to give a lift now and then, what sk our mission? Life sends us about In strange di rections, and It often happens that those who are down now may be up later when fortune isn't quite so kind to us. Help your friend; the time will eome, no doubt, when you will appeal i him for assistance, for none of U9 can really stand alone. This is a selfish reason possibly for wiping others, but It often influences eople to do for others when unselfish reasons would have no Influence. The real reason for extending help sod sympathy to those In need Is this if we walk unseeing and unmindful f those who are less strong, we walk mlon and without happiness. DEFENDS WOOL BUYERS. The people of Umatilla county are not surprised to hear the Pendleton Tribune defending the transient wool fcayer who comes to the county and state once a year for a few weeks as against the wool producers who have kbtlr entire capital invested here and bo are permanently engaged In nilding up the wool growing Industry f the state. The Tribune is always wrong and the people expect nothing else from The woolbuyers are "good fellows," tu be sure, and the East Oregonlan personally admires a number of them and has been guilty In the past of printing their bearish wool market re ports. But the woolbuyer cannot deceive the people this year on the wool situ ation. Oregon prices were hammered own In order to keep later aales down and the ruse effectually worked and made at least half a million dol lars profit for the woolbuyers and commission men this year, from the hard earned products of Oregon sheepmen. There Is no use disguising this fact. It Is a part of the commercial game and has been well played, but It should not hide" the truth. There Is a logical difference of two cents per pound between Oregon wool which shrinks 70 per cent In scouring and the Montana wool, which shrink 66 per cent. Hut there Is not a dif ference of from 5 to 7 cents. And the Oregon staple Is better this year than the Montana wool. And here Is something which th alleged woolgrower writing to th Tribnne In defense of the woolbuyer did not state, to-wit: The wool which brought the highest price In the re cent sales at Miles City, Mont., was shorn from Oregon sheep, was filled with Oregon sand and was logically subject to all the conditions of Oregon wool eales. but It brought the top price in the Montana market. Why Is this the case, If there was no com. binatlon of woolbuyers In the early Oregon markets? The East Oregonlan welcomes the woolbuyer to Pendleton and Umatilla county, but It cannot Join with him In hammering down the prices of one of Umatilla county's chief commodities. The East Oregonlan Is on the side of the woolgrower every time. The Tribune does not dare to nam the alleged "woolgrower" who gave it the Interview In defense of the wool- buyers. To be sure, there should al ways be the best of feeling between the woolgrower and the woolbuyer. but this good feeling should not run to the extreme of the Oregon wool grower giving up half a million of his hard earned profits each year that woolbuyers may be "good fellows," spenders of money . and wearers of diamonds. Let the Tribune name its alleged woolgrower who thus defends the woolbuyer. His fellows would like to "see the color of his hair." No need to fear that Umatilla coun. ty wool will refnain a drug on the market because the buyers cannot manipulate the market to suit them selves. Wool Is as good as the gold, especially Oregon wool. IK THE NEWSPAPER TOLD ALL. The following truthful and striking statement concerning a newspaper's secrets hits the nails so forcibly on the head that it Is worthy of repro duction In the East Oregonlan. The clipping is from the Joseph Herald, but that paper failed to give the name of the author, unfortunately. Here Is the clipping and it contains nmre truth than many of you had thought: The average newspaper man gen erally finds out all the naughty do. inns, no matter how secretly they are planned and kept. If the papers should publish half of the stuff they hear, there would bb 10 divorces where there Is now one. There would be social ostracism of many who now shino in upperdom. There would be shotgun matinees, lynching bees, hatchet parties, gore, imprisonment, desolation and misery. The editor learns hearly all hypoc risy of life and it's a wonder he be. lieves in man, woman, witph or the devil, in heaven or hell. Many people continually find fault with newspapers, when as a matter of fact they owe their very standing lr the community to the editorial wasts basket. NOT SO TAME A ITER ALL. Water, although looked upon as the tamest of liquids, Is as great an ex plosive as dynamite, under certain fa. vorable conditions, says a sclentiflo Journal. It is said that In one day water breaks up more earth and rock than all the gunpowder, guncotton and dy namite In the world do In a year. These explosives can be controlled by human agency, but water doea not hold Itself accountable to man. It splits the soli Into pieces. Finding a crack In a huge rock, It repeats the same process, forcing It asunder. If frozen In the pores of a tree, It often explodes with a report like a gunshot and the force of a dynamite bomb. So you see, water Is not so tame as lr looks. AN EXPERT OPERATOR. One of the fastest linotype opera, tors In the country, If not the fastest, for steady work, is Frederick A.

People born between the 21st of July and the 22d of August will rec ognize some of the traits given below as their own, although they may be modified by the sign rising at birth. Those born with the sun In Leo are ambitions, aspiring, fond of and capa- le of exercising authority. They are generous, magnanimous, affectionate. sympathetic, sociable and susceptible to affairs of the heart. Whatever their position in life U la difficult for them to act In subor dinate capacities, unless the indica tions of serving are strong in the na tal figure. The sun In I.eo at birth Is f.ivorahle for health and longevity for the f:ifh er It favors the birtii of a son and contributes to the manifestations of genius. If other positions support It. The native is Inclined to be a deep thinker, and prefers to go to the bot tom of any subject in which he may be Interested. While the sun is .still In Leo the moon passes through the 12 signs of the zodiac, and it may Interest the reader to note the variations that are played upon the principle tones of the Leo character by the different positions of the moon. On the 21st of July, the day the sun enters the sign of I.eo, the moon is In the sign of Taurus and Inclines the native to a study of namre. both mental an 1 physical, givis. good bus iness intuition and strong vitality. For the three days following until the 2.1th, the moon is in Gemini, which inclines to a love of odor and is both artistic and mechanical, with strong educational tendencies. On the 25th and 26th the moon is in Cancer, which denotes a domestic, sympathetic atiT) sensitive nature liable to the extremes of the Leo nature. On the 27th, 28th and 29th, the moon is In Leo. This polarity coun teracts the nature of Leo when taken separately. The 30th and 31st the moon passes Into Virgo, giving love of purity imd harmony, a tendency to criticism. Im petuosity, and Inclines to musical tal ent. So on through the month are the influences varied by the position of the moon (with the sun still In the sign of Leo), and an observant mind will note these differences In the characteristics of their friends and acquaintances and be able to Judge for themselves of the accuracy of stel lar science.

All along down to the trouble and the strife I could hear the music of the harps of happy life Birds were In the branches and the blossoms were hanging sweet Above the dusty city and along the roaring street; All along down to the traffic and the pain, I had brought a sunbeam from a cot tage In a lane!

The body is then deprived of its necessary nourishment nnd strength, and is unable to resist the countless disorders that assail it, and the general system suffers in consequence. The appetite fails, digestion is weakened, chills and slight fever are frequent, while the sulkier lose.) ciury and ambition.

Few people understand the neces. slty of sweat, says the New York Press, it has been calculated that there are 30,000,000 pores In the glands of the skin which cover 'the body of a middle-sized man! Through these more than one-half of what we eat and drink passes off by Insensi ble perspiration. Sweating Is a most wonderful part of ihe animal economy, and Is abso. lutely necessary to our health, and even to our very existence.
