INDIAN SUMMER. trees are leafless, and the The grass is dead Beneath the feet. The summer flowers sleep (Except a truant rose), the low skies weep At dawn, because the summer's fled; And yet within the gardens (gold and red) The brave chrysanthemums their vigil keep In colors of the summer; light winds heap The fallen leaves; the sun from overhead With warmth and cheer sends down his golden light Through the bare trees, or at the casement gleams. Through rosy twilight draws the quiet night Ahon a bird-note falters, and the streams 4, Of traffic cease, and softened light The soul of summer still and dreams. Amie Kate Barnes, Outlook. In the lingers in the 4 REAL MOUNTAIN WATER, Here is a suggestion. It Is one the East Oregonian has made before but it may very properly be repeated at this time. If the water board is to be authorized to provide a gravity water system for the city then let them be empowered to install a good system a real mountain water supply. There Is danger that Pendleton may go half way in the matter of estab lishing a gravity system. By getting water this" side the Blue mountains a gravity svstem may be installed at comparatively little expense so it I seems. But the quality of water would not be as good nor the volume as great as could be obtained by go ing fai th' r. Within a few years such a system might prove Inadequate Just 8 the present system Is inadequate. In planning for a gravity water system we should look to the Pendle ton of the future as well as to the Pendleton of today. This city will In crease in population. There are many forces at work for the advancement of Pendleton and growth will come if the proper work is But done by those who are here. But If people take a narrow, pessi mistic view of affairs and stubbornly refuse to lay the foundation for fu ture growth the advancement of the city will be retarded to that extent. If we provide a water supply suffi cient only for the needs of 6000 or 8000 people it will be difficult for the city to go beyond(lts present population. On the other hand an abundant sup ply of good mountain water would serve as a standing Invitation for peo ple to come here to live. They would come. Of course a real mountain water supply will cost much money. It might cost $300,000. But there are towns no larger than Pendleton that are figuring on spending as high as $500,000 upon gravity water systems. A town never goes wrong by Invest ing money in good water. This Is es pecially true when the money Is se cured through a bond Issue and the bonds are paid off with money earned by the water system. NO "GIVING IN." "I do not like the present condition of affairs and I would not mind vot ing for a few closely regulated sa loons If It were not that such a course would seem like giving In to the sa loonmen," cald a well known resident of Pendleton a few days ago. Ho was one of those who voted for prohibi tion because he resented the manner in which the saloon business was for merly conducted In this city. But it would not be "giving In" to the saloon Interests to establish six or eight legalized, well regulated sa loons in place of the present "blind pigs " Such a course would rut a further crimp in the saloon business. U would be reducing the number of saloons by nearly half. Then those who engaged In the liquor business wrfuld be forced to pay high licenses and so the city would secure some revenue from the business. It would stop the present enormous mall order business now carried on In Pendleton by dealers In Pasco, Walla Walla, Olympla and other places. Furthermore under a closely regu luted saloon system protection would be afforded minors and habitual drunkards. At present saloonmen recognize no blacklist nor laws against selling liquor to minors. They are beyond the law. Under a close regulation system they would not sell to drunkards or to minors for fear of losing their licenses. It is a mistake to consider that a saloon system, such as has been ad vocated by this paper, would be a victory for the saloon Interests. It Is ,,hnhi thnt In.v ,,.o,, ,,..,i,i oe as aisiastetul to the majority or saloonmen as it would be to rabid prohibitionists. LEUPP'S ERROR. . According to the latest story from Washington Former Commissioner Leupp, of the Indian bureau, fell out with Secretary Bailing? and was forced to resign. Leupp'! downfall was due to the fact that he squelched some troublesome Arizona Indians when he had no authority to do so. He acted arbitrarily in the matter. He should have gone before a justice of the peace, during his regular office hours and sworn to a complain get ting forth in legal terms his charge against Mojave Jim or whoever the culprit may have been. Of course in the meantime the Indian might have gotten across the Mexican border. In that case he should have been left alone for it would not do to trans gress the law, even to catch a murder- at Indian. Respect for the law Is a good thing to teach, but when the letter of the law is made of more importance than the spirit and legal technicalities are used to thwart justice then the mat ti r is going too far. It Is the surest way to breed disrespect for the law. Technical construction of the law In place of liberal construction tends to make the law a farce. Umatilla county farmers are in the habit of looking out for themselves. Through standing together last sum mer they forced the grain companies to deal fairly with them In the matter of warehouse charges. They . now have an opportunity to make another good stroke by backing the Reynolds thresher factory, a concern that will he operated independently of the har vester trust. Some big dailies are Just publish- ing with glaring headlines an account of the discovery of the north pole by Dr. Cook. But that incident was treated of by the progressive press some weeks ago. Since that time many new things have occured. For Instance Pittsburg and Detroit have been slated to play for the baseball championship. Who do you want for the next may or of Pendleton; who do you want for water commissioner and who for councilman from your ward? It is time for Mr. Citizen to give some seri ous attention to this subject. The president made a Joke of the conservation congress held recently at Seattle. It is charged that he Is mak ing a Joke of the entire conservation policy fathered by Roosevelt. It may prove an expensive Joke. With mine explosions, earthquakes and train wrecks occuring hourly the Grim Reaper is having a heavy har vest. Grand opera would be more popu lar If written In American. The aver age citizen Is not familiar with "Eetal- lan." SOME PUNGENT POINTS OF A SERMON Here are some of the points which the Baker Democrat reports from a sermon of Dan Shannon, the whirl wind evangelist. "Cleave to that which is good; use a cleaver on the bad." "Men say, 'I do the best that I can.' What Is the size of the can? A quart or a pint? Get a gallon." "Most sinners serve the devil for some kind of pay, but the blas phemer gets nothing and pays his own board." "If God had Intended a cigarette smoker's nose to be a chimney he would have turned it the other side up." "The devil Is the world's greatest pawnbroker: he gets all the souls that are not redeemed." "It's not man's position that makes the world brighter; Its his disposi tion" "Some people get all they can and can all they get The Mc-oV and Lowly One. "And who are you," St. Peter cried, As he the cringing stranger eyed. The poor shade shrank against the wall: "I'm a consumer, thnt Is all " Cleveland Plain Dealer. "OLD POLKS AT HOME." Way down upon the Suwunee Rlbber, Far, far away, Dero's wha my hart Is turning eber, Dere's wha de old folks stay. All up and down de whole creation Sadly I roam, Still longing for de old plantation, And for de old folks ut home. CHORUS. All de world am sad and dreary, Eb'rywhere I roam; Oh! darkies, how my heart grows weary, Far from the old folks at home. All 'round de little farm I wander'd, When 1 was young, Den many happy days I squander'd, Many de songs I sung. When I was playing wid my brudder, Happy was I, Oh! take me to my kind old mudder, Dere let me live and die. One little hut among de bushes, One dat I love, Still sadly to my memory rushes, No matter where I rove, When will I see de bees a-hummlng, All 'round de comb? When will 1 hear de banjo strumming uown in my good old home? Stephen Collins Foster. IN THE GAME COUNTRY, Next morning we were in the game country, and us we sat on the seat over the cow catcher it was literally like passing through a vast zoological garden. Indeed no such railway jour ney can be' taken on any oihvr lino in any other land. At one time we passed a herd of a dozen or so o great giraffes, cows and calves, can tering along through the open woods a couple of hundred yards to the right of the train. Again, still closer, four waterbuck cows, their big ears thrown forward, stared at us without moving until we had passed. Harte beests were everywhere; one herd was on the track, and when the engine whistled they bucked and sprang with ungainly agility and galloped clear of the danger. A long tailed straw colored monkey ran from one tree to another. Huge black ostriches ap peared from time to time. Once a troop of inipnlla, close by the track, took fright; and as the beautiful crea tures fled we saw now one and now another bound clear over the high bushes. A herd of zebra clattered across a cutting of the line not n hundred yards ahead of the train; the whistle hurried their progress, but only for a moment, and as we passed they were already turning round to gaze. The ui Id1" creatures were in their sanctuary and they knew it. Some 'of the settlers have at times grumbled at this bame being kept of such size; but surely it is one of the most valuable possessions the country could hav.e. The lack of water in parts, the prevalence In other parts of diseases harmful to both civilized man and domestic cattle, render this great tract of country the home of all for the wild creatures of the waste. The protection given these wild crea tures is genuine, not nominal; they are preserved, not for the pleasure of the few, but for the good of all who choose to see this strange and attractive spectacle; and from this nursery and breeding ground the overflow keeps up the stock of game in the adjacent land, to the benefit of the settler to whom the same gives fresh meat, and to the benefit of the whole country because of the attrac tion it furnishes to all who desire to visit a veritable happy hunting ground.

"I cannot live without your love." j "Get some new stuff." "Will you marry me?" "Well now there's some class to that." Eugene Guard.
