JUDGE SULZBERGER, of Pennsylvania, has pro foundly formulated and wisely applied the legal dic tum that street corssings belong to pedestrians, and he has sent to prison the driver of a motorcar which ran down and killed a woman at a crossing. A few more such examples inexorably applied would Co far toward maKing tne streets 01 ihb u.iu would remove the terrible menace which threatens the life of every citizen who ventures abroad. Automobile drivers too often imagine that the earth and its fullness is theirs; that the foot passenger, wheth er at a crossing of elsewhere, is offensively disputing their full ownership of the highways. A blast of the horn is an imperative order to "get out of the way." If the un happy individual fails to hear or heed, the worse for him. A term in jail for a few of this type may teach the les sons laid down by Judge Sulzberger that the pedestrians have the right of way at the street crossings; that when the crossing is not clear it is the business of the motor vehicles to stop; that if an accident results from the fail ure thus to stop, the auto driver will be held to strict ac count. Once this penetrates the consciousness of careless drivers there will be the beginning of better relationship between them and the general public; a less arrogant at titude by the one and a more kindly and tolerant feeling by the other. At a newspaper stunt the Boston Journal set a new pace when the day after the fire at Salem and while fire men were still fighting the burning ruins, it sent a photo grapher in a flying machine, who sailed over the still burning city and secured by far the' most novel pictures ever used in a newspaper. It is an example that will be followed, and pictures of disasters taken from airships will be a common feature of the papers in the very near future. less town." Other Oregon towns, Salem for instance, might accomplish something in that direction if the peo ple would pay more attention to their lawns and the park ing along the streets. ... Germany might build a canal through Nicaragua, pro vided she wanted the canal, had the right to build it and also had the money to spare from her naval schemes. The Panama canal will be sufficient for her needs for some years to come. . ' ' George Fred Williams took advantage of the first op portunity to let the world know who was minister to Greece. Now President Wilson comes and lets that same world know who is not minister to Greece. Getting into the kingrow may be pleasant enough, but getting out has its drawbacks, as witness Prince Francis Ferdinand, while bossing a country as president is not all cakes and ale either.

TnfprvpnHnn and quite likely annexation must come some time why nui now The mediators made a rather loud report, but it re mains to be seen if the eun was reallv lnnrlpH nr if it- wna ! only a blank cartridge for.Fourth'of July purposes. Six wooden-legged men testified in a damage suit in Massachusetts that the loss of a leg did not diminish a man's earning power. This might cause the railroad com pany to put in a counter-claim and ask pay for depriving the man of a useless log. Besides the opinion of the one legged six must be taken with several grains of salt. Sup pose for instance the man who lost the leg was a profes sional foot racer, or a mail carrier? Newspapers are made hurriedly, and sometimes the queen's English is pretty badly contorted. Here is a sam ple, all right in itself but still somewhat paradoxical. An exchange in telling of the arrest and fining of a "boot legger," says: "Twenty-five days in jail or $50, said the arm of the law." Truly, a most eloquent arm with re markable linguistic abilities. After all, the act of that New Jersey boy who cut off a cow's tail because he could not catch some boys who threw stones at him, is in close touch with the reasoning of some grown folks. It is in fact allied to the actions of those who undertake to make the world holier and better by assassination of rulers. Mr. Jones should be well equipped for that diplomatic position. For six ye a re he has been a director of the Har vester company, and it must have taken lots of tact to keep it in the straight and narrow path. It might have been real wicked but for his moral guidance. It is claimed by French explorers in Africa that they have discovered a new kind of elephant, one that can stand severe punishment and go a long time without food. This is an opportune discovery and one the G. O. P. should welcome as a refuge and a hope. Baker City is ambitious to become known as the "weed- -C THE ROUND-UP.

Retired Lapp & Bush, Bankers Transact a General Banking Business Safety Deposit Boxes Traveler's Checks I WAS an interested observer of the war in the Balkans. I was visiting my son, First Lieutenant Siiernian Miles, field artillery, United States army, who is iniliuiry attache at Sofia, Bulgaria. We daily heard the booming of the guns and watched the wounded being carried to the rear. It has been a tremendous conflict and one of absorbing in terest to a man of military training. It was real war right straight through, and 1 would not have missed seeing what I did of it for any thing. As I am not on the active list of the army, I did not intrude my self upon the tiring line, but I was ablo to gain a splendid insight into the way the battles were fought and the strategy used just the sauie. IN SPITE OF THE FACT THAT I HAVE BEEN RETIRED FROM AC TIVE SERVICE FOR SEVERAL YEARS, I TAKC THE SAME INTEREST IN MILITARY MATTERS I ALWAYS DID, AND IT IS A MATTER OF GREAT PLEASURE TO ME TO SEE TO WHAT A SPLENDID STATE OF EFFI CIENCY THE UNITED STATES ARMY IS IN AT THE PRESENT TIME. I CANNOT NOW RECALL ANY PERIOD WHEN THE STANDING ARMY WAS SO ENTIRELY READY FOR ANY DUTY IT MIGHT BE CALLED UPON TO PERFORM. GOVERNMENT AS BAD AS UPTON'S GANG Ail Contracts With Sir Thomas Can celled But Only After a Nasty Scan ' dal Had Developed. London, July 6. That the adminis trafionNiad route rather badly out of the army canteen scandal in which the firm of Liptons, Limited, was involved, was the opinion generally expressed in political circles here today. The case grew out of the grunting by persons high in the management of the Liptou of unlawful roinmissions to army officers charged with the purchase of ennteen supplies. Kight of them, be sides a number of the army officers, were convicted aud sentenced to var ious punishments. The government probably would not have been blamed had not Baron New ton developed, by questions he asked in the house of lords Wednesday night that no steps hud been taken to strike the Lipton concern's name from the list of army contractors. To these questions no direct reply was returned. The announcement was made Saturday, however, that orders hud been issued for the termination of all Lipton contracts as speedily as pos sible. The general view was that no questioning ought to have been neces sary to bring about this action, that the administration hail neglected to do it ought to have, done as soon uv convictions resulted in the criiuiiral cases nnd that by doing it finally, when public attention had been culled to the matter, it tactily acknowledged its de reliction. The opinion was also freely expressed that the sen mini was far from being favorable advertising for Liptons, Lim ited, or for Sir Thomas Lipton, though he was not accused of having bad any thing to do with the case personally.

SKIN PEELING NATURE'S AID TO NEW COMPLEXION Ordinary metcolized wax is a natural beautifier. lly flecking off the devital ized surface skin, it merely hii;t-."ns Na tuie work. The second skin layer, brought gradually to view, exhibits the healthy, youthful color produced by ca pillary circulation. This because the capillaries are thus brought nearer the surface; also because the new skin is unsoiled by sun, wind or dirt. This wax, to be had atany drug store (an ounce will do), is put on nightly like cold cream, washed off mornings with warm water. Its work usually is completed in from seven to ten days, long enough not to show too marked results from day to day, or cause discomfort or de tention indoors. A face bath to remove wrinkles, made by dissolving an ounce of powdered saxolite in a half pint witch hazel is an other natural beautifier, since its astrin gent aud tonic properties smooth out wrinkles in accordunce with .Nature's own process. OPPOSITION TO JONES SAID TO BE WANING Washington, July 6. Opposition to the confirmation of Thomas J. Jones and Paul Warburg as members of tire federal reserve board was believed in administration circles here today to be waning. The prediction was made that both would be confirmed before the end of the week. Jones was in Washington, prepared to appoar before the senate commute un banking and currency, which wanted to question him concerning his connee" tion with the harvester trust. He was the president 's personal guest at the White House. According to Jones he held but a single share in the harvester company, America is the land of boundless possibili ties, opportunity and extravagance.
