"God's hand has visibly prevailed" The. Kaiser sTF" HIS is a horrible example riJi of what can happen to a 1 nation or to an individual that has been deprived of all ,Ji4mor. .. . , .,-r - jThe Kaiser is a thick, conceit-' Tied egomaniac who would froth fit the mouth and fall in a fit if . bnyone dared to laugh at him. .A thick, conceited person is without a sense of humor. If Jie had one, he would realize the absurdity of his own thick- . fiess and conceit. "J "Similarly, the German peo- : Vle are thick rsnd conceited. -They have stuffed themselves with rich foods and self-adula- . tion for so many years that they hre slow-witted- fafc-headed. JJThey are furious when they are laughed at. They never laugh ' at themselves. Whatever they ;my is sound ; whatever they do -is right. So far as they are able 'to discover, there is nothing about themselves to provoke .mirth. - v - HE idea of a union depot for Pendleton ia 'perfect ly logical from every standpoint.

The Northern Pacific has its passenger depot in the East Oregonian building. Therefore should the depots be combined this publishing company ,. will lose a tenant.
