He wan Impressed with the booming of the Los Angeles citlxcns and auld he leurned thut an Oregon colonel from Portland wua the gueNt of honor at a bunquet In Loa Angeles. The usual after-dinner speeches were tnaile, all boosting the city of Lo Angeles, but each speaker regretted thut Los Angeles bad not been founded on the count The speuk er all anld that had the city been on the count Inst cud of ten mlloa or ao from It, the city would be the gnrdeo spot of the world.

Once cannlbuls and fierce warriors, their fuces tutooed mi us to be terri ble to look upon, the Maoris of New Zeulutid are now lawyers, doctors, even member of the New Zealuod leglsluture. Their cuntilhullstlc ten dencies Itrltnln long ago successful ly suppress. A few old warriors are the only remaining examples of the uncleut art of tattooing. The cnnnlbullsm of the Mnnrls wus the natural consequence of life In a country where animals uud birds wero few uud hard to llnd. War wa their favorite sport, but from their ear splitting, liuir raising wur dunce often performed eveu In tjtae of peace, thoy would turn to the story tellers for one of the loved talcs or songs of their ancestors und heroes. A feeling of rhythm and poetry wus deeply rooted In these people. Many of their stories were In verse form and they bad a aong for every occasion. They had not always lived In New Zealand. Mnny years buck a chief bud gone on a long voyage from their home In Iluwalkl and had found an Island good tor fishing and with few Datives to be conquered. To this Is land he led his people and here for many generations they hsve lived and fought. A Maori legend explains that the north Island of New Zealand wss caught up from the ses with Ja hone fish hook by Maul, the favor ite hero of the tribe. Many are the lugends of the deeds of Maul which the Maori fathers relate to their sons thst tbey, too, may be brave and strong, If not In battle, at least on the football Held, where today the Maoris excel. Those of the tribe who do not live In the New Zealand dtlea are grouped In little villages not unlike the Maori settlements of the days before the coming of the white men. They raise their grain, potatoes and tobacco In tbelr gardens, and Osh In river and sea for eels and trout Cnllke the In dian, tliese people are holding their iwu ugulust civilization and are even thriving In a Mrltlsh-ruled New Zea land.

IT! REES SPARED BY LIGHTNING Bolts Seem to Pick Out 8pecle for Destruction, and Leave Their Companlonr Untouched. The lightning seems to bave it favorite victims among the trees. I bave never known It to strike a beerh tree. Hemlocks and pines are Its favorites In my wood. In other regions the ouk and the ash receive Its attention. An ouk on my father's farm waa struck twice In the course of ninny years, the last bolt proving ratal. The burd, or sugar mupie, is frequently struck, but only In one Instance have I known the tree to be Injured. In this case a huge tree was simply demolished. Usually the bolt comes down on the outside of the tire, muklug a mark a If a knife bad clipped off the outer surfaces of the burg, revealing the reddish- yellow Interior. In several cases have Keen this effect But a few sum- nverg ago an unusuully large and solid sugar-maple In my neighbor's woods received a charge thut simply reduced It to stove-wood. Huch a scene of utter destruction I bave never before witnessed In the woods. Hie tree wus blown to pieces as if it bud been filled with dynamite. Over a radius of 50 or more feet the frag ments of the huge trunk lay - scat tered. It wus as If the bolt baffled so long by the rough coat of mall of the maple bad at last penetrated It aod had taken full satisfaction. The explosive force probably came from the Instantaneous vaporization of the sp of the tree by the bolt Century. ACHIEVEMENT DUE TO WILL Determination to 8ueceed is Far Mora Powerful Factor Than the) Possession of Ability. Charles P. Stelnmetz, the 3100,000- a-year consulting engineer of the General Electric company, tells us that men don't do big things until they grow discontented, remarks a wri er in American Magustlne. He quotes aa old Turkish proverb that the world belongs to tbe dissatisfied. No truer word was ever spoken. There Is another fact that ought to be brought out In this connection: Tbe big differences between human beings do not He in ability and In telligence. People come nearer being equal to brain than we Imagine. The really big variations He la force and ambition. One man achieves a thou sand times as much as another not because he Is a thousand times as mart, bnt because he Is a thousand times more determined. On no other theory can yon explain mun. Yet we see It all the time. : Look around your neighlmrhood and . you will find plenty of cases. The ; "ordinary mun" who begins to rise : at unprecedented speed does so be-1 cause be suddenly gets a vision, de-' velops a desire, sees a goal. Having : done thLs, be begins to travel at a pace which he has never shown before. : " i Jap Islands Made" In a Hurry. I It 1b suld In tbe Ainu folklore that ; the Island of Tezo, In Japan, was made 1 by two deities, a male and a female, j who were the deputies of the Creator. The female had the west coast al-: lotted to her as her portion of. work, and to the male deity were assigned the south and eastern parts, i They vied with each other In their tasks to see which should get i through first. But as the goddess i was proceeding with her work she' happened to 'meet the sister of Olonlno and Instead of attending to : her duties, stopped to hnve a chat 1 with her, as is the general custom ! among women when they meet . While they were thus talking the time sped until the male deity, con tinuing to work away, nearly fin ished his portion. Looking up and seeing this, the female became very 1 much surprised and frightened, and Is order to hasten matters did her work hurriedly and In a slovenly manner. Hence It Is that the west coast of Tezo Is eo rough and dan gerous. POLITICAL CARDS (Paid Advertisement.) MRS. JOS. MOSS hidt-peiidcnt Candidate for County Clerk .EUGENE L.
