I wish that summer'd come along: An' not be foolin' so; I want to be where rivers sing An' honeysuckles grow. To see, a mile or two from town. The cork a-bobbin' up an' down. The wear' weather worries me I'm not a growlin' one But st'll I'm gropin' In the gloom An' wishin' fer the sun. I want to hear a bird sing sweet An' see the violets at Love's feet: Atlanta Constitution. m . ELIMINATING THE GRAFTER. Graft is about the greatest evil of modern Hfe. It Is a serpent that ln slduously steals its way into the lives j of men and makes criminals of hon est people almost before they are aware of its presence. This is a fact. Almost every day we read of pub lic men who have been caught In wrong doing and who must suffer prosecution. Generally It means dis grace and ruin, if not the peniten tiary for them. The state of Wash ington now has a half dozen officials or former officials who must explain their conduct. One or two of them are sure of conviction. Oregon had its day when some of its most' promi nent men were convicted of complic ity in land frauds or in crimes equal ly as bad. But grafting Is not confined to men in high public offices. It begins low er down. Nor are all the grafters caught. The most of them are never suspected and this Is what causes the zn'-schlef. The man who cheats a railroad company, whether he be a railroad employe or a passenger, is a grafter. So is the traveling salesman or the mall government employe who pads his expense account. So is any man, whether he occupy a position that Is high or low, public or private, who takes something that Is not honestly his. The two examples named are merely mentioned because they rep resent grafting in Its elementary form. All grafters are not bad men. Many of them are very estimable men. Few of them are thieves in the ordinary meaning of the word. Most of them would abhor out and out stealing. They merely see chances to make money easily and apparently without injuring any one. They see others do the same thing without being ques tioned and they grow to believe that the practice Is alr!ght. It Is only when they are caught that the wrong comes to light. To do away with grafting It Is nec essary that there be a more rigid ob servance of the commandment , not to steal. Grafting Is merely indirect stealing and the grafter really de serves to go in the same catalogue with the burglar and the footpad. When society reaches such a stage that people will so regard him, graft ing will soon become unpopular.- The practice is now fast being placed un der the ban, and every time a grafter gets "burned," whether he be an ad jutant general or a railroad conduc tor, the educational proces Is for warded. Some day people will learn that the eighth commandment covers stealing In all Its forms and they will then regard the grafter In the same light as the horse thief. ENTIRELY UNJUST. How a protective tariff works to the injury of the consuming class la well illustrated by the case of pulp and paper. The pulp and paper In dustry is largely centered In Maine. Quite naturally the trust that controls the business desires a tariff to keep out competition and Senator Hale of Maine docs Its bidding. But there Is no Justice In a high tariff on paper and pulp. "There U scarcely a more indefen sible duty than that on wood pulp," says the Portland Journal. "It has been demonstrated that American mills can produce this commodity as cheaply as Canadian mills can. It has also been proven, admitted by the protected wool pulp manufactur ers, that their net profits amount to 24 per cent on their own capitaliza tion, which doubtless includes a good deal of water. Besides, to exclude Canadian wood pulp from this coun try directly a'ds in the destruction and extinction of our rorests. "What statesmanship is here pre sented; consumers of wood pulp and its product, paper, are taxed millions a year to enrich the wood pulp and print paper monopoly, and indirectly to destroy the forests, while on the other hand millions nre asked, and great efforts are being made to pro tect and preserve portions of our for ests. The high duty on wood pulp robs the people doubly, first, by mak ing a necesa'ty cost much more than 't should, and second, by deforesting the country. Nobody is benefited but a few men who form a trust " AX UNPLEASANT SITUATION'. The normal school regents have re fused to allow the normal schools to continue during the next two years, even at private expense. Consequent ly, Oregon will not offer any normal instruction for a couple of years, at least. In order to fill the hundreds of vacancies which occur annually Ir. the state's teaching brigade, teachers will have to be imported from other states or else the ranks filled with untrained young men and women. This is not a pleasing situation. It is especially discouraging at this time for Oregon Is now posing as a pro gressive state and is inviting new peo- pie to locate within its boundaries. ; These newcomers will wonder why Oregon, like other states of the union, does not provide for normal educa tion, for it is now universally recog nized that normal schools are the ba sis of a state's educational system. What shall we tell them? Shall w tell them that the people of Oregon are too poor to properly support an educational system or that the people are too Ignorant to understand the need of normal schools? No, the people of Oregon are not starving, neither are they ignorant. The most of the people firmly believe In schools and are willing to support them lib erally. Tell them that In an evil hour the safety of the normal schools was left in the hands of some state sena tors who were prejudiced against them and who tried to kill them. But that Oregon will not do without nor mal training. In due time such train ing will be provided for and Oregon will have more than one state nor mal school. Thursday night the high school de bating team will debate with the win ning team from western Oregon for the championship of the eastern Ore gon and Willamette valley districts. For the fine showing the Pendleton team is making the students are en titled to much credit and local peo ple should show ttielr appreciation by attending the coming debate. For kidnaping Willie Whltla, James Boyle has been sentenced to prison for life, while his wife was given a 25-year sentence. They deserved the harsh punishment that has been meted out to them because kidnaping Is a fiendish crime. Since Pendleton already has sev eral tracts of land suitable for park purposes surely the city should be able to place them in fit condition for use.

Placing my heart between thee and all ill, Life's Jars and strain and the deep thrusts that kill With sudden grief, I might have kept thee yet; With soft allurements bidding thee forget That alien joys seeks exile at her . will. While woe earth's native lingers with us still; But who can banish pain and dark regret? And so, beloved, for love's sake I would hear These , heavy hours and call thee back no more. Knowing that thou art sheltered and secure From the keen ills that all who live must share, I would endure the burden and the heat Call evil good, and think death's sharp draught sweet. New York Sun.
