Tin: CHILD IN mi: GARDEN v V V When to the garden of untroubl ed thought I came of late, and saw the open door, And wished again to enter and explore The sweet, wild ways with stain less bloom Inwrought, And bowers of Innocence with beauty frought, It seemed some purer voice must speak before I dared to tread the garden, loved of yore. That Eden lost unknown, and found unsought. Then just within the gate I saw a child A strange child, yet to ray heart most dear He held his hands to me, and softly smiled With eyes that knew no shade of sin or fear; "Come In," he said, "and play awhile with me; I am the little child you used to be." Henry Van Dyke in the Pres byterian. WATCHING BALLINGER. Enemies of Secretary Ballinger charge that he has departed from the conservation policies of Roosevelt and that as a result of his action in re storing public lands to entry some valuable Montana power sites have been gobbled up by a big electric company. An emphatic denial is made by Ballinger who says he is carrying on the conservation work started by former Secretary Garfield but Is not advertising the fact. Owing to the lack of complete, un questioned information It Is difficult for the puhlic to judge between Sec retary Ballinger and his accusers. It Is plain however that the secretary 13 following a less rigid policy than did Secretary Garfield with reference to the conservation of resources. In this Mr. Ballinger has merely follow, ed out the general plan of the Taft administration which has been a pol icy of conciliation while Roosevelt's plan was to hew to the line and save the country's resources no matter who was hit. Just why Secretary Ballinger began restoring lands to entry Immediately after he took office seems difficult to understand. His action was certain ly a blunder because it laid him open t) the charge that he was playing In to the hands of interests that wanted to gobble up valuable rights. The fact that some power sites were taken has aroused especial resentment for the reason that the power trust is one which the people are beginning to es pecially fear. However Secretary Ballinger is new In office and it would be unjust to condemn him completely upon the evidence thus far submitted. The secretary s a very broad minded, ca pable man and his recent address at the irrigation congress Indicates a sin cere desires to administer bis office In a proper manner. He has one of the most difficult positions in the land. He must judge between what seems like an abstraction the welfare of the general public on one hand and private and corporate Interests upon the other hand. But the secretary's position makes him the trustee for the people and the only safe course for him Is the one which nas for ltB end the protec tion of the general public, present and future. The "interests" will look out for themselves very thoroughly. They have able attorneys to present their claims and to carry their dis putes into the courts If they are im posed upon. But the people have no such special representatives and their only hope lies In the honesty and strength of the secretary of the Inter ior and other public servants. So It Is but natural that many are now look ing with critical eyes at Secretary Ballinger and are wondering as to the manner of man he la. Looking down from the BUN moun tains upon the Umatilla valley Wll liam K. Curtis, the celebrated corres i non.lent. was moved to ecstasy. Well he might be, for the scene which met his eyes yesterday is a magnificent one. The grand punnramu of wheat field and summer fallow Is beautiful and Impressive. When Mr. Curtis de- i 114 the view to be the most won dt rful he had seen upon his present trin he probably spoke the exact truth. Hut there is one thins about this panorama that Is not pleasing. In stead of being a great "checkerboard" o; wheat fields and summer fallow this county should be one Immense field of green and gold. In other words it would be much better If the farmers could raise crops on all their land every year and did not need to rammer fallow. To the average Umatilla cnty far mer it will seem senseless to attack the summer fallow for he believes that summer fallowing Is the only course t pursue. Yet experts declare that the soil ot this county is good enough to justify annual crops and that the rainfall is sufficient for annual crops if the moisture is but properly conserved. Prof, F. H. King, of the agricul tural department of the university or Wisconsin, has gathered data showing the duty of water per acre for the different classes of crops. His fig ures show that 15 inches of water, which is the normal rainfall for this county, should be sufficient to pro duce 50 bushels of wheat per acre each ytar; that 10.7 Inches of water should produce 50 bushels of barley; 7.8 inches of water should produce 50 bushels of oats; 8.4 inches of water, 50 bushels of corn; one inch of water, 50 bushels of potatoes; and that 13.3 Inches of water should produce three tons of clover hny per acre. If these calculations are correct, as they doubtless are in the main at least, then the Umatilla county farmers ed not let half their land lie idle each year. By the rotation of crops and by such methods of tillage as will conserve the maximum amount of moisture they may raise annual crops with success. Some day they will do it, in many portions of the county at least. JUVENILE HAND. At the irrigation congress now on In pokane a pleasing feature has been a boys band from North Yakima. The band is composed of about 30 very youthful musicians, yet In spite of their youth they play and march well. With the people of Spokane and those attending the congress the band has made a hit and bas been creditable to North Yakima. Some years ago Pendleton had a juvenile band. In fact at different times In the past the city has had a number of good juvenile bands and many of the present musicians were trained in the boy's organization. It would be well at this time If a boys' band could be formed. The band would not only be beneficial to the youngsters but would be an In teresting feature on public occasions. For some time past the local men's band has been Inactive. The band has appeared but seldom and then only when dragged forth with diffi culty. Possibly some new blood Is needed and the organization of a boys' band would Improve the situation. Secretary Ballinger says he Is fol lowing out the policies of his pro decessor but is not advertising the fact. But why not advertise the fact. If he Is following the footsteps of Secretary Garfield he Is on a good trail and he need not conceal his movements. Governor Brady of Idaho, evidently thought Pendleton a dry town. But If the honorable visitor had observ ed closely he would have observed that the city has some eight or ten sa loons In splto of prohibition. Harry Thaw must go back to the asylum and Ella Glngles has been de ported. Now what will the metropo litan newsmakers have to hand out to the suffering public? Moving Day.

Mrs. Harriet Rebecca Perry's failure to hit the tip of her nose with her Index finger while her eyes were closed convinced Magis trate O'Connor that there were grounds for believing her mentally unbalanced. Accordingly he coin. mitted her to the psychopathic ward at Bcllevue hjspitnl for five days. Mrs. Berry appeared In the west court today charged by Madeline Zanderweah, who lived with her, with having attempted to choke her to death. Five days In the hospital will determine whether Mrs. Berry will be formally committed to the in sane asylum. Mrs. Zanderweah declared that while she was sleeping yesterday Mis. Berry tried to strangle her. Her screams, she said, prevented -Mrs. Berry from carrying out her Inten tion. "Mrs. Berry says Dr. Eli.it of Har vard stole her ideas of a new religion from a book that she wrote entitled The Individual Development of Man,' " testified Mrs. Zanderwt ah. 'She has been acting strangely of late tnd I fear she will do me serious in jury." Dr. F. W. Robinson said he had en engaged by members of the Berry family several years ago to in quire into her sanity and found she was suffering from delusions. Dr. Hugh Kidder, an alienist who says he has treated Mrs. Berry for twelve years, swore she was given to strange beliefs and actions. "I have not heard enough to con vince me that Mrs. Berry Is danger ous or that the public would suffer if she was allowed her freedom," said Magistrate O'Connor. "Therefore, I am going to ask a few questions my self." "How old are you?" was his first interrogation. 'Forty-seven years," promptly re- plie,i Mrs. Berry. "Why should your relatives wish you to be placed in an asylum? "Because I own property and bank accounts, and they wish to take charge of my affairs and get my mon ey." "Now, Mrs. Berry, I will ask you to close your eyes," said the magis trate. She obeyed. "Take your Index finger and strike It on the point of your nose," said the court. Mrs. Berry Jabbed her eye with the first attempt. She dented her chin with effort number two. She became excited by the test and in a rain of jabs succeeded In striking every part of her face except the objective point. "Gentlemen," said the magistrate, turning to the medical experts, "that convinces me that she should be ex amined. This is an old. reliable test and she has failed." Mrs. Berry was graduated from the New York hospital for nurses In 1892 and from the Sloan Maternlay hospital training school. She Is a widow. Chicago Tribune.
