in taese days or strenuous war
preparations, the average cltisen
baa many and varied appeals made
upon him. Moat of them arc -worthy,
Most of them are opportunities of
whloh the a re rage American 'gladly
avails himself to the extent that he
feels able. .
One of the latest appeals seems
to as to offer a splendid opportun
ity to every citizen, young or old,
rich or poor. , It la good because It
Is so easy to meet; good because It
gives so much of real happiness to
the 'men in the' army and navy. ,
The1 'secretary of war has asked
tba good people of the country to
supply the training camps and garri
sons and even, to soma' extent, the
man at the front, with good reading
matter. He has appointed a war li
brary committee and, pursuant to
his request, the governors of the the
several states have appointed similar
local committees. Governor Wlthy
eombe has appointed as chairman of
the Oregon ' committee Wm. U
Brewster, formerly city commission
er ot Portland.
It is planned to erect at each can
tonment a library building equipped
and managed by trained librarians.
From this central building the sev
eral dlvispn buildings, operated by
Yonng Mens' Christian Association,
Knights ot Columbus, .Toung Mens'
Hebrew Association and other Ilka
organisations, will be supplied. All
post,' training camp' and place where
men of the army and navy are as
sembled will be taken care of.
It 'is estimated that 150,900 books
are needed to start work In the 32
cantonments. This Initial collection
irlir. be supplemented as fast as the
books ran be assembled.' Books are
needed and some funds must be
available to permit duplications and
replacements necessary to keep a
library really efficient.
The local librarian In each com
munity Is made a receiving and for
warding agent for this splendid

Inaugurated since the out-break of

perhaps more. Let them come in.
DIGNITY OF LAW IN
LIQUOR CASE UPHELD
The sheriff's office, - and that of
the county clerk have occason to
shoot little pleasantries In the direc
tion of eaoh other semi-occaaionally.
The clerk's force had a good deal to
say about the order upon Sheriff
Lewis to 'destroy "publicly and at a
certain hour" a five gallon keg of
whiskey." The sheriff "came back"
In the official return which under
the law he Is required to file with the
clerk. The return reads: k

of the county court of the state of
Oregon, for the county of Josephine,
duly made and entered on the 5th
day of September. A. D. 1917, I.
Geo. W. Lewis, duly elected, quali

county, state of Oregon, was com
manded by d G. Gillette, the Judge
of the said court to publicly des

the 8th day of September, A. D.
1917, at 1 o'clock p. ni. of said day.
Now, therefore, be It remembered
that, after assuring myself, the said
sheriff, that naught but the absolute
and actual destruction of the said
whiskey would appease the said
court, I attended In by own proper
person at the time and place desig
nated by the said court for the pub
lic destruction of the said whiskey,
and exposed the same, to the full
view ot. those there assembled.' 1
the sai'J sheriff, then demanded In a
loud vi'lce' of 'one or all to' show
cause why the said order ot the said
court suould not be executed by me
literally and in Its entirety, and. re
ceving no suggestion which to me
did not appear either collusive or. co
lourable, I at once, and with great
vigor bored two holes In the said keg
containing the whiskey as aforesaid.
The first of said holes I bored In the
top of the said keg and the second
of said holes I bored also in the
top of the said keg. But the second
of said holes, I the said sheriff, In
tended using not aa an outlet for the
said whiskey but to accelerate It!

With due solemnity snd with a
full knowledge or the significance
of my action, I gently placed the
aforesaid keg upon Its side, and at
