HOFER BROS., PM" Proprietors J3. IIOFEH, Editor. , A. HOFER, Manager. THE JOURNAL STANDS FOR PROGRESS, DEVELOPMENT, GOOD GOVERNMENT. AND NO DEGRADED LABOR. . CHEERFULNESS. (Dy Rudolph Grcon for Tho Capital Journal.) Tlo so easy to bo happy, whon tho world's all bright and gay, When tho boos nt work aro hummlr.g, and tho chipmunks chirp at play; Whon tho budB droop down with dewdrops, and thp Bky's one dome of bluo, And tho dancing leaves of Summer, left the golden sun light through; When tho brook, all lined with posies, murmors carols soft nnd low Ah, 'tis easy to bo cheerful whon you can't help being so. Rut tho Btorms nround you gather and your life with sorrow's clad, Then then Its not so easy to be nlwnyB kind nnd glad; Whon tho flowers In tho moadow, hide their radiant boadB from vlow, And your friends turn from you cotdly, when bad luck has como to you Whon tho loaves fall from tho branches, and tho birds forgot their song, Ah, 'tis hard to koop on smiling when It seems that all Is wrong. It Is not bo easy, elthor, whon you'ro sick and actio with pain, To bo always kind and thoughtful, nnd from anger to abstain, Hut If you cnn moot llfo's nngulBh, brnvoly with n pleasant smile, And nlthough sometimes dofonted, boldly mako anothor trial, If you through tho clouds of sorrow always bco tho brightest ray, You will help tho world grow better, driving crlmo and gloom away. Instead of tho dlroct tax of $47,000 lot the University be given $G0 000 or $70,000, bit WHATEVER IS NECESSARY FOR SUPPORT. Then lot it como to tho legislature for lands and buildings whon It needs them, and specify what it wants, and it will bo treated fairly. But let tho people stand firmly by the principle that they are the mas ters of tho situation, and ACCEPT NO DICTATION FROM ANY "IN STITUTION." , Tho people aro tho only "Institution" worth mentioning In Oregon. They nro tho only machines, tho only bosses. But they must bo fair and progressive up to the demands of tho times, AND WE HONESTLY RELIEVE THEY WILL RE. The Oregon state government I3 In the hands of the people moro than any other state government in the Union of states. To hold that grasp firmly tho people must bo fair and conservative toward all interests vital to tho commonwealth. The process of continually enlarging tho demands of "Institutions" and "departments" of government MUST RE STOPPED. That can bo dono by keeping tho Big Stick ever actively employed In striking down unwarrantedly rapid lncrenso of domands. Thero must bo a check upon the outgo of tho state treasury, and a constantly Increasing Inflow from indirect taxes. Tho tnxeaters cannot havo all they want and at the same tlmo lot thp taxeators DODGE ALL THE BURDENS AS THEY HAVE IN THE PAST. In order to force an lncrenso of Indirect taxes, it will bo Just as well to choke off some of tho enlarged domands that aro excessive. Sustain tho rofcrondum on hnlt a million to a million dollars of th; oxccsslvo demands until thero Is so mo new Bourco of taxation in sight to moot tho bills. That is business. : i - mYmmm9v9 OREGON'S MOUNTAIN QUAIL Evory llfo just llko a river, runs through Home unfcrtllo land, And may chaugo oft times n desort to a country groat nnd grand, If tho llfo bo always choorful sparkling though It bo through tears, j It will light tho shndos with Bunahlno, as It wonds through vales nnd fillflfHHliHMlllIHHllllgm mores, And whon tho chb-tldo of tho ocoan boars It from the shores of llfo, It will be by nil rumomborud ns "a horo In tho strife."

Among tho many bird calls denot ing tho certain arrival of spring thero Is none moro inspiring than that of tho oroortyx pictus, or moun tain qunll. This resonant nnd woodsy note comos from ono of tho most beautiful of nil tho native game birds. Decorated with his martial plume, in uniform of olive brown nnd rouftis, nnd his soldtcr-llko bearing In company formation, ho Is a de light to nil who nro so fortunnto ns to seo him in his nntivo woods. His hnbltnt oxtonds from tho Columbia river to as far south as Cahon pass In southern California. Tho Columbia rlvor Is about his northorn limit, although a fow havo boon soon north of that boundary. In tho southern portion of his rango ho Is found only in tho higher por tions of tho Sierra Novadas, not bo lug found In the Const rango south of San Francisco. Fnrthor north In the boundaries of Orogon tho quail Inhabits tho valloys as well as tho hlghor altitudes and in tho Willnm otto valley ho Is an all tho year resi dent, brooding In our woods and or chards, whoro thoy bring oft a flock of from six to 15 chicks. Tholr food Is seeds (and I presume that Includos a ltttlo of tho good farmers' grain), borrlos and Insects. Whore I see thorn mostly tho woodt nnd pastures havo grown up with evorgreon blackborrlos, so I prosumo thoy reap a harvost thero, or nt loast thoy have tho ftillost nccoss to thorn during tholr long season. The habitat and description of tho mountain quail I havo taken from n book on California and Pad II 0 coast birds, published by order of the leg islature of California, nnd which I found In our stato library. Description Head with a crest of two feathers much longer than tho bill nnd head. The antorlor hnlf ot the body grayish. The uppor parts gonornlly olivaceous brown with n slight shade ot rouftis. Have bo noath tho oyos and throat orange chestnut, tho sldos of tho body show ing black nnd white bunds, tho blnol; being tinged with chestnut. BUI bluish horn color. Foot brownish white. Tho nost contains from six to IS dggs of n palo reddish buff color, and always situated on the ground, well hidden by standing grass or overhanging limbs ot brush. 1 remember qulto well when I wn six or eight years of age, In com pany with my younger brother, we found a quail's neet In the cornor ot the fence surrounding our peach or chard on the old farm south of town.

Wo then took, up with tho notion of taming her with food brought to tho nest nnd scattered about. Sho finally became so ac customed to our visits that wo could walk up, draw aBldo tho protecting houghs nnd Inw tho food alongsldo without disturbing her In tho least Last Biimmcr out In tho nolghbor hood of Hazel Green church on my dally trips I made tho acquaintance ot anothor quail with a flock of about a dozen chicks early in tho season boforo thoy woro ablo to fly. If I came upon them suddenly by the roadsldo tho mother bird would sound tho danger call nnd hurry backwards and forwards until sho had drlvon the Inst ono to cover of tho nonrby bushos boforo socking snfoty horsolf. In fact tho matornnl Instinct Booms to bo moro strongly dovelopcd In tho qunll than nny other of tho fonthorcd tribes. This ono Boomed to uttedly disregard dangor until her chicks woro In n plnco of safety. Ono day I drovo rapidly onto tho Pudding rlvor bridge, coming suddonly upon my acquaintance with hor family taking a sun bath on tho flooring of tho bridge In a moment the alarm nnto was Bounded, nnd tho mothor was riiBhlng frantically here and thoro, first on ono sldo of tho buggy, then on tho othor, brushlnr tho little onos off nt tho Bides ot tho bridge, whonco thoy would drop somo ten to 15 foot into tho brush below. The mothor's distress wns roally pitiful, but sho scornod to louva tho scene of danger until tho Inst chlolc had boon hustled off, whon sho nlso quickly disappeared. I saw this fam ily almost dally until tho shooting season opened In Octobor, nt whloh time they had become nearly full grown. Tho hunters must havo dis persed thorn the first day, for I never saw them again. JAY W.
