scientific manner in which they were executed This was the first appearance of Miss Conover in a public Recital and her friends and instructor are justly proud of her proficiency She has a delicate

the best form Mr Chas K Wathen who had charge of this horse received many complimen tary statements from our citizens who pride in fine stock The show made at disadvantage due to the crowd on the

please publish this letter as it will then reach a great num ber of people who otherwise would never know that our beau tiful city is unharmed Let it be emphatically under stood that Los Angeles is all right thatandon the day following the earth quake at San Francisco there was a slight tremor felt here but it was very slight I suppose the fact is there was some disturb ance over the greater part of the United States for it is stated that the shock was felt in Wash ington D C and traveled from East to West Many people who have not been in California have the impression that the whole State is in a ten acre lot with San Francisco in the center but it is a vast territory and Los Angeles is 400 miles from San Francisco When we stop to think of it Boston Chicago Seattle Galves ton and Baltimore have all experienced great catastrophes and they are now apparently the better off on account of being constructed anew So it will be with San Francisco Thirty days from now there will be from 30000 to 50000 men at work on the burn ed district and courage and in dustry will cause her to rise from the ashes to a greater height of splendor and beauty than she has ever known before Imme diately after the disaster everyone was so stunned to hear of the i appalling news that business was neglected for a few days but now Los Angeles has done her part for the comfort of the suffers and is actually housing a great num ber of them and since conditions at San Francisco have taken shape all have turned again to heir business And now that the excitement has passed away the real tradge dies of the disaster will come to light and they will consist of broken hearts broken minds and broken homes So hoping my letter is not too long I will close Mrs Mary Elmore Cleaned Out When a deep

prosecutions have been undertaken and are yet de manded for the suppression of the beef packers conspiracies and an end to their grafts Hardly a day passes that you do not hear a Republican of un

men women and children- among the wrecks of theirhouses of worship From the stone steps and broken pillars of these lately magnificent edifices from beneath the shattered and blasted trees along the upheaved avenues from the green slopes of parks and cemeteries that overlooked the blackened ruins anthems swept out prayers were offered and grateful thanksgiv ings returned for the preserva tion of life and the little that remained of the splendid city There was no distinction of sect or creed when the scattered remnants of broken congrega tions assembled to worship with whatever pastor and reverently bowed their heads in the open cathedral of the firmament Ser vices were held without altar roof or aisles devout men lifting up their voices like Hagar in Efthe wilderness of Beersheba On Sunday morning after the destruction of the city forty poor Chinamen stripped o f every earthly belonging but their queues and the clothes upon thier backs knelt down at the usual hour of worship in the ashes of their temple and sent up their simple and fervent petitions to the giver of all good gifts It is cruel to say that the trag ic calamity came as the wrath of God It is cruel to say that San mayIhave possessed her measure of iniquity And so do all cities But let us at least be charitable to the dead Let us believe in the brave spirit that is lifting the shafts of a new metropolis Sufficient refutation ofany charge of insincerity are the rituals held above the ruins of the fallen city The whole affair was a stupendous tragedy Across the continent swept the wails of the desolate By strange freaks of the unseen hand tip death survivors were left standing alone Parents gone wives gone children gonevictims off the indiscriminate elements A voice was heard in Rama lamen tation and weeping and great mouring Rachel weeping forlier children and would not be comforted because they were not A fortnight tomorrow since the earth hurled the fine struct ures of the city into shapeless heaps of rubbish San Francisco starts today where she started fifty years ago The work of half a century is to be gone over But already the smitten city has set her hand mightily to the task

Entered at the Columbia Poetoffice as second grass man matter WED MAY 9 1906 Twentyone indictments were made Portland n the Federal Court in Oregon last week for land frauds Bribery frauds

Joseph Folk of Missouri and while he was purifying St Louis he was also purifying the entire country The bitterest fight ever waged against a prosecuting attorney was di arectedweakling the crusade against graft bribery and other illegal methods by the big swindlers would have been dealt a fearful blow if not entirely killed but it was not the case and in the entire history of our country the

informed brethren as being an essential part of Masonry The Freemason of London England in a recent issue under the head ing Royal Arch Masonry aptly saysThis degree is the completion of the Master Mansons ceremony and therefore all those brethern who have been raised to third should not rest satisfied until exalted to the august de gree Historically the Royal Arch can not be of much less antiquity than the arrangement of the tolJeratedmier Grand Lodge for about t hre quarters of a century whilst it was recognized by the rival Grand Lodge from its ad vent to the blessed union of De cember 1813 when the ceremony was adopted by the United Grand Lodge the Solemn Act of Union between the two bod ies being based on the declara tion that Pure ancient Masonry con sists of three degrees and no more including the Su preme Order of the Holy Royal Arch s RoyalIArch is not a degree but an ar rangement which provides the means of completing the Master Masons grade Gentlemen who seek to become Freemasons do so undoubtedly with the idea that all the information needful to equip them as craftsmen will be supplied in the lodge as an equivalent for the fees they an ticipate being called upon to pay Possibly however to the sur prise of all candidates and to the chagrin of some on arriving at what they deemed the cli max olthe ceremonies they find that only substituted se crets are imparted and they must go through propositions ysJ t ballots fees ceremonies and even purchase extra costly cloth ing before they can become companions and full members of the chapters in which the admitted defect of the third is supplied Virtually it is the right ol such candidates to be put in possession of the additional nec essary particulars and every en couragement should be afforded brethern to proceed as soon as possible to the final grade which will make them Master Masons RATE LEGISLATION Now that a large number of the most notable speeches on the rate bill have been made inter est is centering on the coming battle concerning aments More than eighty have already been introduced and when the discussion and balloting on each separate one begins it is sure to be productive of a situation of great interest Many of course will be killed off with hardly enough debate to furnish the substance of a decent epitaph but there will still remain a large number by means of which the Hepburn bill must be whip ped into shape That the bill will be amended is certain since it fails to pro vide for the broad court review which even the President in fa voring the Simmons amendment has come to look upon as necessary This amendment also pro vides for the temporary suspen sion of the orders of the Com mission when sush a step is nec essary in the eyes of the courts on the condition however that the complainant give bond for the amount at issue Of course it is uncertain wheth er this particular amendment will be added to the bill but it is certain that one conveying the same sense will be There has indeed been considerable misin formation concerning this rate bill debate for the question at issue is not whether there shall be regulation since everyone is agreed that there shall be The question all along really has been whether such regulation should be accomplished a man ner which would emasculate the courts or in one which would leave them free to act in rate cases as in all others The realization of the necessity for so doing is in reality only a testi monial for the administration of of justice by the judiciaryLo gan County News Watch for it It will

girls l1 and conquer it sardare afraid she is making ridicule of them and that is just one thing they cannot endure Dont try to say sharp funny things be content to be merely gentle loyablegirls A sense of humor is not as valuable a quality in a girl as it might seem It often leads her into laughing at her friends and making then appear foolish She sees funny things at the wrong time and place and frequently makes herself unpopular through hurtingpeoples feelings It isnt always the girl who says the funniest things who is the most popular You may laugh when she says witty things about others but you haveaDunqomfortable feel ing that she talks the same way about you when your Jxack ia turned Sarcasm is not kindly and no aEd i Ja one without kindness of heart is ever truly liked If you cant say nice things about people the wisest thing to do is to hold your tongue You will never lose any thing by keeping your temper Sarcasm only makes enemies and does you no good The girl witha sarcastic tongue is disliked as well as fear ed She has such a horrid way of hitting one in the weakest spotEven if your opponentis get ting the best of an argument dont retaliate by being sarcas tic It does you more harm than any one else by making you un popularLots girls think it a poor compliment to be called good na turedThey are quite wrong though for it is one of the nicest qual ites a girl can posses The good natured girl has hosts of friends everyone likes to have her around she is so cheerful and obliging One of the most popular girls I know is not a bit pretty nor is she at all witty but shn is so sweettempered and kinkly that everyone loves her She never says a sharp or bitter word to or about anyone- I also enow a young woman who is quite renownedJTfor her witWhoever is with her is always in gales of laughter She is usualIY s telling some funny stoay about someone or otherMen flock around her but they dont fall in love with her they are afraid of that caustic wit of hersWhen it comes to falling in love they would prefer someone more gentle and mild You know as a rule girls cant bear sarcastic men well men feel just the same way about sarcastic girls Sarcasm is a horrid unkindly quality There There is a lasting sting in ev ery sarcastic speech In a mans eyes the greatest charm a girl can have is gentle ness and sweetness The sarcas tic girl has neither of these qual itiesHer words are tipped with the poison of unkindness- A sharp remark may five satis faction to the speaker at the time but remorse is almost sure to come later- Nothing was ever lost by gentleness and a sweet tember Be atrice Fairfax BRAIN LEAKS God looks at the heart not at the hand A great many men mistake dyspepsia for sound conviction It takes somethingCmore than lung power to make prayer

a living but it takes a hustling bill collector to getjwhats coming to hun I It is easy to build up ajreputa h tion for Philanthropy by giving away money that came withoutt exertionThere is a vast difference between contentment and satisfac tion The happy man is the one contented with his lot A whole lot of men are political reformers every day in the year but threeprimary day election day and
