Prsiance of Mind. A visitor to an tnsaue asylum was walking In the ground when a man nine up lo him and entered luto con versation. After walkiug about for some time, discussing topics suggested by the place, the two set out on a tour of inspection, tlie man. appurently au otllciul. inviting the visitor to go over the asylum. At length they reached the foot or a flight of steps, up whicb the guide led the way. and at the top the visitor found himself out upon the roof, a height of more than a hundred feet from the ground. As they gazed below bis companion startled him sud denly by proposing to see who could Jump farthest toward the grounds! Not until then had It dawned upon the visitor that bis guide was mad. Mer cifully he was a man nf renriv wit. mirt his wit saved the madtunn's ilfe. "Oh. nuybody can Jump down," said the vis itor. "Let us go down and see who cno Jump to the top." The madman thought it a good idea. and. retracing their steps, the two begau their Jump from the earth instead of from the roof. The Mammoth Cava Rat.

In its native denths. however. It Is able to lead a comfortable enough existence.as Its enormously long whisk ers are so extremely sensitive that they enable it to find Its way rapidly through the darkness. The principal food of the cavern rat consists of a kind of large cricket of a pale yellow color and, like most other cave dwell ers, itself perfectly blind. The Lilias. Two thousand years ago It was sup posed that water lilies closed their flowers at night and retreated far un der water, to emerge again at sunrise. This was Plinv's view, nnrf it Impeached until the English botanist John Ray In 1088 first doubted Its veracity. The great lily of Zanzibar, ohe of the grandest of the Illy family. opens Its flowers, ten inches wide, be tween 11 In the morning and 5 In 'the afternoon. They are of the richest royal blue, with from 1.r0 to 200 golden stameni In the ceuter, and they remain open four or Ave days.

Just as every new idea Is misrepresent ed. Things that are false are told about It, sometimes with the know ledge that they are false, sometimes In the belief that they are true. A brief statement of what Socialism is, may be in order. Socialism Is, a plan to set aside the robbery of the worker through profit, interest and rent, andi to in sure him employment at all times and the full social product of his toll. It Is proposed to accomplish this by placing the highly developed tools of production and distribution too large and expensive to be longer owned and operated as Indi viduals .under collective ownership and democratic control. This would at once Pce the whole people, who wou'd own these things, m possession f what they produced, without the Intervention of an owner or boss, and enable them to retain all they might produce. This Is all there is to Socialism. It has no secrets. It is not a system of laws which; It wishes to Impose on others, but a plan, a method, through which it would give the working people control of the!r own lives It Is nothing more than the extension of the American principle of democracy, a further socializing of things, be gun when roads, schoo.ls postofflces and Like things were socialized. It is socialisation of Industry, and no more to be feared, no more difficult of understanding, than are the social ized or common schools. Socialism Is not opposed to pri vate properly. Indeed, Its whola aim ! la to mak 11 80 that all people may hav private property, rather than only a few millionaires as at present. Socialism is not un-American, it Is merely an extension of the prin ciples set forth by the revolution ary forefathers. The American movement is, as has been, found by careful census, composed' of more than 60 per cent ifatlve Americans. Socialism Is not a scheme de pending entirely ton. agitation for success. It Is. the growth' of an idea. As proof of that fact, It la world wide. Socialism, on essential points, is the same all over the world. Socialism Is not opposed to the American flag. American Socialists use the flag. They use the red flag also as an international symbol The stars and strifes would not do in England or Germany, but the red flag, representative of universal broth erhood, can be used anywhere. The red flag is not the symbol of anarchy Anarchists use the black flag. Socialism is not anarchy. It Is the opposite of It. Anarchy believes in no government. Socialists believe in further organization, a perfected iaiisiiaiiiiiiiiiiiiiEiiiiBiKiiEiiaEHiiBiBBaa 9 Enterprise Livery and Sales Stable Baher 71 Smith, Proprietors Fair treatment to everybody.

J.D.WALOK Real Estate Dealer NOTARY PUBLIC Mitchell Hotel Block . . JOSEPH, OREGON We Do High-Class Job Printing Try Us ---We guarantee satisfaction organization that shall include the social life. Socialism Is not narrow. The fact ' that it includes all races andi all be liefs proves this. It expects to win the world, andi It could not do this and would not deserve to do tt, If It had designs on censoring the beliefs, or peculiar mannerisms, or ways of thought, of . anyone. It wishes on ly to end exploitation and secure higher and Juster civilization. Socialism Is opposed to dividing up. The. workers now divide up with the owners of the machine, and So cialism would stop this outrage. Socialism is the friend of the home. Uunder capitalism twoflftha of the people are renters, and an other fifth own homes under incum brance. Socialism will make H pos sible for all to own good comfort able homes, free of debt. Socialism is a friend to religion. At present so-called "Christendom" la an armed camp, where poverty and crime are visible everywhere. Socialism will end war and poverty and estbllsh full religious tolerance. Under these conditions religion could thrive aa it can not now. Socialism Is a friend to marriage. Under the present conditions thous ands of girls are bebrayedl into white slavery for the profit of it, and other thousands forced to prosltution by economic necessity. Many m-em and women are unable to marry, and many who do marry are unable to raise their children as they should be. rdbed. When Socialism Insures to each worker employment at all imes and the full product of his toll, there will be no mora forcing of women to prostitution, no more slum lfe, no more fear of getting married because of poverty. Theni marriage can occur and every family will be afe. ADVERTISED LETTERS.
