Thoro la not In the wldo world a valley so sweet Ab that valo In whoso bloom tho bright waters meet. O, tho last rays of fooling and Hfo must depart s Ero tho bloom of that valley shall fade from my heart. Yet It was not that Naturo had shed o'er tho sceno Hor purest of crystal and brightest of green: 'Twns not tho soft magic of streamlet or hill, O, no It was something moro oxqulslto still. 'Twas that friends, tho beloved of my bosom were near, . Who mado every dear scono of enchantment moro dear, And who felt how tho boit chnrtnB of Naturo Improve, Whon wo 8oo them roflocted from looks that wo love. Swcot valo of Avocalt haw calm should I rost In thy bosom of shado, with tho friends I lovo best, Whoro tho storms that wo fcol In this cold world should cease, And our hearts, llko thy waters, bo mlnglod In peace. Thomas Moore. PUBLIC ' PARKS AND SPOONING The Horse Editor Ventures Ideas On the Subject a Few PW CELEBRATED V SALEM SHOULD TAKE HOLD. Tho way Salem pcoplo have taken hold of tho ruislng of funds for tho Y. M. 0. A. shows that what haB boon dono for that enterprise could bo dono for others. If Salem pcoplo would tako $50,000 or $100,000 Btock as bonds In THE HALEM AND FALLS CITY RAILROAD IT WOULD HE IJUILT. If Salem would do that It would bring an onormous volumo of bushics Jioro, Btlmulato all linos of nctlvlty, PROPERTY WOULD ADVANCE AND ALL WOULD HE RENEF1TTED. Tho si mo would result from tho construction of tho Salem nnd Meha ma oloctrlc. Thoro aro COO loggors employed In tho neighborhood of Falls City, who, with a railroad across tho valloy. would como to Salem onco a month nt leant. AT PRESENT ALL THE WEST SIDE COUNTRY IS SHUT OFF FROM SALEM AS HV A CHINESE WALL. Dotwoon Salem nnd Shorldnn, nnd Salem nnd McMlnnvlllo thoro Is not ovon a plnco to wa'tor n team of horses. Tho Isolation of tho fanning communities is something tcrriblo to contomplato. TRANSPORTATION ALONE WILL CHANGE THIS CONDI-TION. WORK OF THE TEXT ROOK COMMISSION. Tho adoption of textbooks by tho stnto commission six years ago was a clean, hUHlnoHS-UIco transaction. Tho people woro not Jobbed. Education was not degraded. Privnto in terests woro not appropriated. All competitors woro fairly treated. That uilop'tlon reduced prices of toxthooks, saved tho pcoplo $106,000 in nix years, nnd broko up n ruthless nnd demoralizing monopoly. Tho commission 1b practically composed of tho unmo men, and thoy ought to bo ablo to improvo their work by galnod oxporionco. Ono gront gain will bo to provont prlcos from bolng advanced. So mo publishers will make pleas of Increased cost of labor and materi als. Hut Improved mnchiuory for pinking textbooks will .offset Increased cost of production. It Is bollovod by many that thoro conld well bo a fow less books possibly ono Iohs In language, ono loss In arithmetic and ono less in geog jnphy.

HOW LONG MILL THIS CITY PUT UP WITH THEM? How much longoi- aro needed improvements to bo delayed by surrep titious methods of men who will not do their work in tho opon, but who seek nothing but DELAY, DELAY, DELAY, TO FINALLY KILL THE IM PROVEMENT. What right havo those obstructionists, through tholr sccrotly hired men to change public records after specifications havo onco boon ndoptod? Is It not a crime against tho community to tuna thwart tho will of tho potltlonors, who roally wish 3tato Btroot Improvod?

Now by all the grass that Nebuchadnezzar did not eat, wouldn't that jar you? Why bless tho dear ignorant heart of him, ho ought to know that a placo Biiitablo for spooning, Is fit for a bay window nt tho top of tho ladder that leads to paradiso. Spooning is one of tho most delightful Incorporeal things in tho world, and Is so utterly lovely and distracting that tho femi nine pronoun, "She," belongs to her, Instead of "It." S' o was discovered by tho Goddess of Spring, blessed by tho moon, perfumed by tho flowors, filled with music by tho birds, mado dreamful by falling waters, clothed in tho misty robes of starlight, taught to whisper by tho dryads and to laugh by tho Naiads.

Perhaps ono of tho grcntest Inducements to spooning Is tho dan ger lurking In It, for it Is ns deadly as u buzz saw, or tho business end of a mulo, or an Oregon legislature, or any othor nboslutoly Irresponsible thing. Jacob had' n delightful tlmo for ho spooned Rachel for aovon yonrs, and thon got gold bricked bo to speak.

Samson spoon ed Dolllnh, but sho was a powtor spoon and tho plating soon woro through. Samson got tho worst of It, of course. Anthony spoonod tho red-haired Cloopatra nnd loBt both nn omplro nnd his life. Hoineo and Juliet woro Just a pnlr of dosort spoons, and Dosdomonn snuffed out hor glnd young llfo by spooning a snddlo color ed Moor, with a tomper llko a fllo.

Chagrined by tho discovery that they woro smoking and chewing a brand of tobneco that was mado up largely of alfalfa a dozen fishermen on ono of tho traps In tho Sound a few days ago emptied their tobacco pouches Into tho gulf and decided to purchase tholr smoking material at tho foed store and to buy It by the balo or olso got a different brand of tobacco.
