Joe Simon will be the next mayor of Portland. His election has caused some people and some newspapers to Imagine that this choice was due to the fact that Portland people have "become opposed to the direct primary and the Initiative and referendum. This Is a big mistake. As a matter of fact Simon was el ected mayor of Portland 'because he was practically without opposition. No really strong man was entered against him either In the republican primary or In the election. But In ach case several candidates ran against him, thus dividing the opposi tion vote and making Simon's success certain. To most people Simon's el ection was a foregone conclusion when the opposition failed to unite upon one strong candidate. Now that he has been elected It will be Interesting to observe the course that Simon will take. Inthe dajg of old he was a clever and high ly successful machine leader. But he declared yesterday that In his ad ministration as mayor there would be no "machine politics." Is It possible that he meant this? It Is entirely possible. During the six years that Simon has been in retirement he may have learned much. He may have learned, If he did not know It before, that the really clever politician, Is the one who is entirely square with his people. But there are many who will doubt that Joe Simon's reincar nation is genuine. They will have to be shown before they will believe that he is anything but the same old ring chieftain. As for the Initiative and referen dum, the Portland eleotion has been a vindication. Though the people had to pass Judgment upon 37 different propositions they seem to have acted with rare discernment. A hasty glance at the returns indicates that most of the meritorious measures carried while most of those that failed de served to fall. The returns Indicate that the people are learning how to vote. EAST EXD FRUIT. The "Strawberry Day" at Milton yesterday calls to mind the Importance of the east end of the county as a hor ticultural section. For many years the Milton-Freewater country has been known as a fine fruit growing district. But within the pant few years the people of that section have made especial advancement along the line of scientific horticulture. They are now raising far more fruit than ever before; they are raising better and more uniform varieties and they have learned much about how to mar ket their fruit As a result they are now making more money than they ever did before and their country Is rapidly becoming thickly populated. But there ! one criticism to he Tl-ey allow another state to claim all the credit for the fruit raised in their section. They let Walla Walla have all the glory and all the advertising out of the products raised In the east end. This should not be. The Mll-ton-Freewater country should not become a backyard for the Washing ton town. The people of that section should see that their fruit Is called Milton fruit or Freewater fruit, not Walla Wall.i fruit. They should do this for business reasons, not merely as a matter of sentiment. GENEROSITY AX1 EFl'U 1KNCV. Human success and happiness de pends largely upon the 'mental traits of individuals. The man or the wo man of breadth of mind and chari table, generous impulses is almost sure to enjoy life and to be popular. But the one who bitterly nurses the recol lection of every trivial wrong makes his life miserable and also Interferes with his efficiency. In a current mag azine there recently appeared the fol lowing upon this very theme: "Some people bear for years a bit ter hatred or a great jealousy toward sime one or more persons, and this mtntal attitude unfits the possessor for giving cut the maximum of his ability and destroys his happiness. Xot only this; but he radiates his in lmlcal atmosphere, thus prejudicing people against him, arousing antagon isms and constantly handicapping himself all along the line. "Just think of the blighting, corro ding influence of carrying some hat red or great fancied wrong or grudge against another constantly In the mind and continually trying to get square with him. Why, in a little while It would cut the efficiency of a genius djwn to mediocrity. "The mind must be free from bit terness, Jealousy, hatred, envy and un charitable thoughts; free from every thing which trammels it, or pay the penalty by impaired efficiency, Infer ior work. "Xo one can carry a grudge against another, a bitterness of any kind, a desire to get even with him, without very disastrous results to his own mind his own efficiency and happiness. "Mental discords whittle life away at a fearful rate; they waste energies; destroy happiness and age one very rapidly." MERIT SHOULD RULE. With much gusto it is announced that the cities of the Atlantic coast will combine with those of the Pa cific in the move to prevent the es tablishment of railroad rates more favorable to inland points. But in point of Influence the "Interior" should be fully equal to the American sea board country. There Is much coun try and some very large cities be tween the Atlantic and the. Pacific. Then it Is Just possible that the In terstate commerce commission will decide the problems upon their mer- Ud and regardless of the "support" that Is given either side of the con troversy. The Increased premiums that will b... offered at the district fair this fall should serve to stimulate exhibitors to excel ther former showings. Plan new to be at the fair with the best showing you can possibly make. The young lady who was engaged to Claus Spreckles, Jr., but broke the engagement, according to the news stories, has received much advertise- Ing. She Is well prepared for the stage. If Jupiter Pluvlus would but do his dity the people of Pendleton would celebrate at once. A COXFESSIOX.

The daring steal, the perilous head long slide. Each In the homage of the gladsome eye Close to the public heart an hour hns sat; Plucked from the blinding sun the in credible fly, Or fiery lines smoking from the bat. Full oft the timely and prodigious whack The multitude has jubilantly thrill ed The great, aerial, fence dlstaining crack And home run wallop when the bags were filled. Lo, where the catcher like a granite rock, Kinsman to courage and unknown to fear, With dauntless front repels the Iron shock And awful volleys of the cannoneer. "vi v And unforgot the pitcher's mighty hour, Whose fusillade immortalized his i name, Held the dread sludgers helpless in his power. And broke their proud hearts with a hitless game. With feats like these our plaudits they evoke, On the green diamond in a game of ball; These, and the incomparaole master stroke ' And flash of genius that outshines them all: Such as of old had made Olympus ring, And vitalized the beautious Phidian clay, And gave to Homer's harp another string, The glorious unassisted triple play! Xew York Sun. Xatlomtl Flunks Irofitnblc, Washington. During the current fiscal year the national banks of the country have received individual de posits of J4,S26,060,3S4, more than $1,500,000,000 in excess of the entire outstanding money supply of the the United States, according to fig ures made public today.

Through a direct ap peal to her husband Mrs. Taft has succeeded In saving from the gallows a man at Fairbanks, Alaska, who was under sentence of death for murder The name of the man is Perovitch, a Russian. Tried and convicted by Judge Wlckersham of Alaska, he made an application through consul for executive clemency on the ground that there were extenuating circum stances. He told Mrs. Taft about it. She asked her husband to be merci ful, and when he still hesitated she pleaded with him. Then the presi dent relented. Delegate Wickersham has Just been apprised that clemency will be granted, and Instead of hang ing Perlvitch will be given imprison ment for life. Sllclitly Mixed. This from the editor of the Hutch inson Gazette: "It's easy enough to be pleasant When life rolls atong like a song, But the man who's worth while Is the one who can smile when he writes 'Mrs. Jones had a lump In her throat,' finds It appear ing In the proof 'Mrs. Jones wa drunk as a goat,' corrects It on the proof and sees It appear In the paper 'Mr. Jones was as punk ETAOT, him 1 cmfwyp shrdlu shrdlushrdlu.'

I THE SPRING This is just a short talk which we hope will be of interest and help to you in selecting the tonic and blood purifier that will be of the great est value to you this Spring. That this is the most trying of all seasons on the health is a fact well known to us all. It is the time of year when our constitutions are required to stand the greatest strain, and unless properly cared for the foundation is often laid for physical disorders or disease later on. The ;reat majority of persons are fast coming to realize the importance of preventing disease. Health is our most valued possession, and its preservation is a matter which vitally concerns every one. Most persons, even those who are ordinarily strong and robust, Feel the necessity of a tonic and blood purifier at this season. Some have no particular ailment, but are weak, debilitated and run-down. The Winter life, with its decreased amount of out-door exercise,1 and the fact that the cold weather has kept the pores of the skin closed, prevented the usual necessary amount of refuse and waste matter from being carried out of the system. These impurities entering the circu lation have weakened and thinned the blood, and this vital fluid is therefore lacking in the nourishing properties necessary to sustain and preserve systemic health, when warm, active Spring life begins. ' The general bodily weakness, tired, worn-out feeling, fickle appe tite, poor digestion, etc., show how weak and anaemic the blood has become. Frequently skin diseases, pimples, eruptions, boils, etc., break out on the skin, and this is evidence of the impurity of the circulation. S. S. S. is the medicine needed to correct this condition, and is the only one on which you can rely to supply the system with the best tonic effects, and at the same time thoroughly purify the blood. The use of S. S. S. at this time may save you from a long spell of sickness, and it will certainly prepare you for the strain of the long, hot Summer. Many people have put off using a tonic until the system became so weakened it could not resist disease, and have paid for the ;ieglect with a spell of fever, malaria, or some other trouble. 3. S.S. is Nature's ideal tonic and blood purifier, made en tirely of the pure extracts of healing, sfrengthening, health- giving roots and herbs. It tones up the stomach and digestion, rids one of that tired, worn-out feeling, improves the appetite and diges tion, and in every way contributes up of the entire system. S. S. S. greatest of all blood purifiers, and tonic properties, make it a medicine S. S. S. is for sale at all drug stores. THE SWIFT SPECIFIC CO., ATLANTA, GA.
