It is an advertisement by a Texas oil company. The circular departs from tho old tried and true method ot assuring the prospective customer that this is a deal of unquestionable safety and eonservatism, and openly announces that most of the great fortunes of this country have been made by men who were willing to take a gambler's chance. It says further that the scheme is being promoted y men who are "playing a game that has made millionaires over might," that it is not a game for "weaklings" but for "steel-splned peculators." and that risks are "In eident to all games where enormous winnings are possible." As an example of what has been 4cme it cites well known oil com panies in which great fortunes have Been made. The thing is cunning in its direct appeal to the gambling instinct, which, however we try to conceal it. 'leeps, and none too soundly, in very human breast. To insure its being read, it is addressed to the women of the household, and osten tatiously marked "personal." It is to be hoped, that this, and all eimilar get-rich-quit k communi cations will meet with a cold re ception at the hands of the women whom it is intended to deceive, and to lead into influencing their hus lands to invest. There are sound 'investments, real estate, reliable stocks and bonds, and W. S. S. for every man, woman r child who wants to invest a' little money, and not one cent of the painful savings of the family should go into any investment, however glittering, until it nas been investi gated by some honest person who knows the game. HAXCIXG The National Association of Danc ing Masters has just held its annual eonventlon In New York City. Three hundred members from the United States and Canada attended, and from that august assembly this sheering news comes forth, "The old fashioned waltz is coming back is already back. There will be no new dances introduced this season only modifications of a few present tens." ThTee hundred persons scattered ever a wide territory can do a great 4eal toward revolutionizing any movement, dance or otherwise, and tt fe gratifying to know that meas ures; are to be taken to restore to th dance some of Its former grace and beauty aa well as decency. "On with the dance," for dancing 1s one of the most Joyous and na tural amusements, but "on," also, with all the Influences which lift lancing from the frenzied maze into which it has degenerated and bring Tell Us IK Yt KAIL SERVICE IT"S PART OK (H KINNEY & TRUAX GROCERY Quality and Service it back to the point where no one need hate to see his daughter danc ing. "Wheu I thiiik of men ot fhe type of 'Bryan and Ford, when I think of their self-satisfied lives of ease, when 'I think of what (hey did to allow disaster and death to threaten this country, tt makes me wonder more than ever at the long-suffering kindness ot humanity which permits such as they still to enjoy the bene fits of citizenship In (his great land which they have 60 signally failed to serve." Theodore Roosevelt. The ' president's speech-makins tour will carry him 10.000 miles and require 25 days' time. He states that he is not under obligations to make a! report to anybody but "his countrymen," inferring, of course, that consress is an unnecessary and entirely insignificant body of noth ingness. He doesnt appear te like Washington, anyway, and besides he and congress cannot agree on a soli tary point. Then why not see Amer ica first? Printers of Portland threaten to strike. Their employers offered them S4 1 .60 per week of 4 8 hours, but the workmen demand $14 for a 44-hour week. The printers at first asked for $1 an hour and a 42-hour week, and there yet may be a com promise. Some printers have no more common horse-sense than some railway shopmen. "The treaty is unique," says the president, "because in the center of it is the redemption of weak na tions. There never was a congress of nations before that considered the rights of those who could not enforce their rights." Yet there is poor old China, left helpless in the strangle hold of Japan. It is claimed that regular attend ance at the movies, gazing at the fair heroines, makes a girl more beautiful. The raising or the eyes to the screen gives the orbs a heav enly, adoring appearance. But Grants Pass girls uet all that by gaz ing at the moon. The woman suffragist leaders of the state are determined that Gover nor Olcott shall have no rest until the suffrage amendment is ratified by the legislature. Meanwhile, the senators and representatives are sitting back easy, perfectly willing to let the governor stave off the re newed "offensive" single-handed. The past season certainly should convince any farmer that he had better farm 10 acres irrigated than 60 or more acres the dry method. Apples and pears failed to "fill out," while corn, alfalfa and clover that was not irrigated simply sizzled. The unexpected often happens. I That bank teller at Portland is now I a "live" hero.

The articles which would make war Im probable had been overlooked. railing on opponents ot the leugue f nations to present a "butter pro gram for peace," 'President Wilson declared it Is a case of put up or shut up. The president said hla speaking tour was pertly to point out how "ab soluteiy Ignorant" of the covenant some of those were who oppted the league. "If they read the iKnirllsh language at aU." he said, "they do not un derstand it an I do." The president said he wanted to forgot and wanted people to forget that they were republicans or demo crats. "At present." eald lie. "we have to mind our own business, hut un der the covenant and the league we can mind other people's business." There wasn't an oppressed people anywhere, he said, that could not get attention for tts case under the league. He did not mention any op pressed .people by that name, but many of ihl hearers remarked (hey thought he spoke of the case of Ire land. Referring to the Shantung settle ment, the president pointed out that Japan repeatedly had promised to return the peninsula to China. He did not go Into the subject at length however hut mentioned It In empha sizing that tho covenant would re fuse to recognize tho validity or se cret treaties. The. president said ho could look the mothers of tho country In tho face proudly because ho had kept his promise to do all ho could to pre vent any more war. "This league," he said. "Is the only conceit aiii arrangement which will prevent our sending our men a'lirond again very soon."
