Sophie Jewett. I.- SPLENDID SCHEME. At this time the most Important en terprise under way in Umatilla county is tba i heme for the construction of a railroad from Umatilla to Pendle ton via. Holdman. If the plans of the farmer promoters of the road can be 'carried out all the country through vhich the road will pass will be im mensely benefitted and so will this city. Then If in addition to this road to the river a road is extended south from this city to Grant county and the entire system electrified by power generated on the John Day, Umatilla county's cup will be full indeed. Umatilla county's greatest need Is of electric roads. Roads are especi ally needed from Grant county Into Pendleton and from Pendleton to the Columbia via. the Holdman country and the Umatilla project. The coun try south of Pilot Rock Is now wholly without transportation facilities. So U the Holdman country. Both these sections are being held back by the lack of railroad facilities. The south end of the county remains a stock raising section because farming is not profitable so far from a railroad. Out In the Holdman country' the farmers are forced to haul their wheat long distances in order to sell It. Now the construction of roads through these sections will not only facilitate the marketing of crops but will also double or treble the price of land along the roads. It Is the his tory everywhere that the building of anch roads bring about a more diver sified farming and a consequent greater population and higher land valuations. The farmers In the Holdman coun try are wide awake men and so they have decided to have a railroad built. They want to build from Umatilla to Holdman and hope to have the road extended on Into this city and ulti mately to Grant county. Those hack of the movement believe that "God helps those who help themselves." So they have started out to see what they can accomplish towards building a road. A preliminary survey has been made, right of way asked for and farmers alon? the line have been asked tr do grading work for stock In the company. Though the task of railroad build ing Is not an easy one yet there Is every reason to believe that the farm ers' scheme can be carried out with complete success. If the farmers will but unite In the matter they can build the road with ease, for they have plenty of money with which to do It and It will pay them to build. If they cannot do the engineering work they can employ men who can. If they do not want to operate the road after It is completed plenty of com petent men will be available for that work. What the farmers need to do now and what the people of Pendleton, of the west end and of the south end need to do, Is to get together and back this proposition so as to ensure When the recent legislature was asked to appropriate $75,000 for the completion ;if the Celllo portage road into The Dalles some of the "rail road" papers of the state opposed the measure and sought to prevent its passage by Offering various objections tn the expenditure. At that time the Kast Oregon sup ported the measure enthusiastically for the reason that the extension of the portage promised to Increase the efficiency of the Columbia river as a freight rate regulator. This paper Is glad the bill passed and that pre parations are now underway for the extension of the road into The Dalles. "All obstacles to the completion of the portage railroad from Big Eddy to The Dalles have been cleared away, the line Is being located, and con struction work will begin soon, says the Oregon Journal. Many people do not understand the Importance of this little three-mile piece of road, and Im agine that the appropriation therefor by the last legislature was money wasted. On the contrary, It Is doubt ful If the state ever made a better in. vestment. It may be compared In value to the Cascade locks, which opened up the river from the Cas cades to The Dalles, about 45 miles, while this will perfect the portage road, that we may roughly say half opens up the river beyond The Dalles for 250 miles. The portage road al ready built, between Big Eddy and Celllo, has been useful, but with this three miles built, bringing it into The Dalles, its usefulness will be greatly Increased, Already 'there are three steamers on the upper river, but with this road completed more and better and faster schedules can be main tained." In addition to facilitating shipping OH the river the extended portage road will also hasten the completion of the Celllo canal. See If It does not. By Charles Badger Clark, Jr. In Pacific Monthly. I went and worked in a drlppln' mine, "Mong the rock and the oozln' wood, For the dark seemed lit with a dollar sign, Anr they said that money's good.

I went and walked in the city way, Down a glltterln" canon-street, For the thousand lights looked good and gay And they said life there was sweet And the women laughed while night reeled by i And the wine ran red and gold.

Oh, 1 looked back once to the smoky towers Where my lace had bleached so pale; Then loped through the lash of drivln' showers To the uncut sod and the prairie flowers And the old wide life o' the trail. went and camped in the valley trees Where the tame wind whispered rest, For love lived there 'mong the honey bees. And they told me love was best. There the lanes we walked was cool and dim And the orchards white with Mav, Yet my eyes they'd lift to the vallev's rim Where the desert readied WAS IT A BLUFF? By the way, some time ago it was announced that the Harriman system had ordered 300 motor cars and that a motor service was to be started be tween Dayton and Petmieton about July 1. But it is now August'and no motor cars have yet nrrived. Is it possible that the announcement wa3 J a bluff, as some suspected, made to head off the construction of electric lines. It bpg'ns to look as though the railroad company's announcement was in a class with the statement from the grain companies that warehouse charjes wiuld be reduced. Why do they deceive us so? tin away. wind! the wild It Is noticeable that active, aggres sive busine-s houses never croak much about slack trade, mere Is al ways business for those who adver tise and who are always after business The race Is to the swift. An Oregon City man named Jancl jag is to be hanged. A man with such a name as that should expect nothing less. Don Jamie thinks he wants to be the king of Spain. But If he knows when he Is well off he will decline the honor. A mountain water supply, with the water brought from the best source there is, that is what Pendleton needs. Electric lines and Irrigation ditches are great factors In the development of such a county as Umatilla. Get your fair Merchant. booths planned, Mr. THE GOSPEL OF LABOR. But I think the king of that country comes out from his tireless host, And walks In this world of the weary, as If he loved It the most; For here In the dusty confusion, with eyes that are heavy and dim. He meets again the laboring men who are looking and longing for him. He cancels the curse of Eden, and brings them a blessing Instead; Blessed are they that labor, for Jesus partakes of their bread. He puts his hand on their burdens; he enters their homes at night; Who does his best shall have as a guest the Master of life and light. And courage will come with his pres ence, and patience returns at his touch And manifold sins be forgiven to those who love him much; And the cries of envy and anger will change to the songs of cheer For the tolling age will forget Its rage when the Prince of Peace draws near. This Is the gospel of labor ring It; ye bells of the kirk The Lord of Love came down from above to live with the men who work.

SHUNNING ELECTRIC LIGHTS. When it first became known that the blond girl had refused a situation in the dry goods store because she would be obliged to pursue her la bors under an electric light Instead of the light of heaven, the irreverent ac cused her of undue vanity. "She was afraid the glare would be too hard on her hair and complexion." they said. By and by this caustic remark reached the blonde girl's ears and she lost no time In refuting the charge. "That Is not the reason at all," she said. "I wouldn't take a place at that counter because the chances are that half the things I sold would be brought back. It makes a saleswo man disgusted with her Job when so many things come back. Also, it makes the manager disgusted. I know, because I have had experience. The last two places I worked I was cooped up In an electric light cozy corner trying to sell cretonne and decorative cloths. Incidentally, I had a few cheap soft pallows thrown in for good measure. I made plenty of sales at that counter, but precious few of them were keeps. Every time I got rid of an article I expected to wel come It back in a day or two, and usually I did. " 'The colors are not what I thought they were,' said the dissatis fied customer. 'Those electric lights are so deceiving. When I got the stuff out In the daylight It looked en tirely different from wha. it did In the store.' "And then, of course, the manager would blame me. Just as If I could help It because blue looked fcreen and saffront a canary yellow. Finally I got wise. I made up my mind that the next time I take a situation I will fight for a counter near a window, so my customers won't swoop down on me with the everlasting complaint of having been deceived In colors."

Senator Reveiidge In one of his many eloquent Independence day ad dresses compared the critics of Amer ica to an admirer of the poet Whit tier. "These critics," he said, "fail to bring the necessary sympathy and knowledge over with them, and hence they are unsatisfactory llko the Whlttier pilgrim. "Pilgrims used to visit Whlttier continually. A typical one came from Missouri. Though told that Whlttier had a headache, ho forced his way Into the poet's study, where he declared that he adored all Whlt tler's works, which he knew almost by heart. He asked Whlttier to write his name several hundred times on a large sheet of foolscap, so that ho could cut out and distribute the au tographs among his Missouri friends In fact, It was all the poet could do to keep the enthusiastic Mlssourlan from clipping all tho buttons from his coat as souvenirs.
