Page Two THE MONROE MONITOR -- Monroe, Washington Friday, February 18, 1927' I J THE MONROE MONITOR Consolidated with MONROE INDEPENDENT By J. J. REARDON & SON PUBLISHED EVERY FRIDAY Entered as second-class matter at the post-office at Mom'oe, Washing- ton, under the act of March 3, 1879. A ltALLOWED TIME We are passing through a most hallowed period in the polXical an- niversary dates of great Americans, greatest perhaps we might say. It is a far cry, indeed, from Lexington to Appamatox and yet the names and fame of the giants of the nation whose birthday dates we are observ- ing this month wi, ll ever live as the two greatest characters in the grea list of real men who have been as- sociated with the bringing into be- ing of the best governmental prod- uct of the ages and setting up a de- mocracy among men the like of which was never before known. On Saturday, the 12th, we observ- ed Lincoln's birthday, he who of all others will ever remain the noblest Roman of them all; he whose en- trance o life's scenes and his depart- ure therefrom were tragic in the ex- treme. SurroundJed by poverty and' growing up through stinted allow- ances, coming into young manhood unprepared to measure up to great emergencies because of lack of learn- ing and the mediocrFcy that comes through iack of the knowledge of books and the ways and means with which big things are accomplished Notwithstanding all of these handi- caps we find this immortal rsing supreme m the matter of national service and conducting to a most suc- cessful conclusion a rebellion 'that threatened the new civilization brought order out of chaos, and in the process freed millions of slaves; brought about the most wonderful reconstruction period of the ages, that of a government "of, for and by tile people." , The tragic ending of the life of Abraham Lincoln has sealed his standing in the annals of his country. Thus it was to whose memory we turned on last Saturday, a memory that will never be forgotten while genius is honored and patriotism is revered. Of one who rose to fame through native charm and fitnes and with all that passer through life in a series of the moat wonderful events ever allotted to human strength to bear, full of responsibil- ity and much of sorrow; and then the suclklen endingat the assassin's hand--Abraham Lincoln. Now we turn forward to another date, that of February 22nd, when the name artct memory of him who has been entitled the "First, the Last, the Best," but that was writ- ten in 1830. The name of Washing- ton will, of course, stand forth for- ever as the Father of His Country, Rs greatest dlefender and first real demonstrator of the fine principles of democratic government. Born with the silver spoon, of aristocratic environments, he cast his fortune with the common masses and after long and much desolate warfare, set up a new temple upon the site where- in had been one of intolerance and injustice. The names of Washing- ton and Lincoln will remain forever interwoven in American achievement; names that set up a new civilization "and brought to mankind a situation of affairs governmentally hitherto unknown--the princi2le that all men l are created equal and shoul& stand .... equal before the law and that by their own acts alone should they be judged. In these times of haggling about among so many little thi.ngs, the bickerings and scrambling, after place and power, it will be well to reflect upon what two Americans performed in such wnlerful fulness; those things which Washington founded and the things of the old and new covenant of the republic, sealed: for all time through the genius and sacrifice of two men, Lincoln and' Washington. With all the fuss and feathers that have been plucked] and plumed in Washington state over affairs poli- ticalbig and little, most of it little --t is nice to know that we can be better conducted' than those more seasoned solons at the big capital, who slap each other violently and bid mightily for a cloakroom seance. At any rate things are moving nicely at Olympia. A condition of things to be thankful for in the light of what see me to ianpend for so long. It's another evidence of the real substance of the fact that whiie there is life there is hope. The old U is still dispensing its store of knowledge to the thousands ef young men and women and will eentlnue to so function:-no matter who happens to be who. SEEKING FOR OIL It will be a great day for the State of Washington when the dbme that will permit o gush forth the much coveted petroleum will be cracked. The insistent research that is being made for this oil find .sets out the very important asset it wi, ll be to oar other industries and what it will do to set up the state in big- ger and better business and bring about a prosperity heretofore un- hear& 9f here--big business, aug- mented by the bi.ggest link of all, lumbering, petroleum and fish. In our own county the Sol Duc Company is keeping on with various bores and moving with a determina- tion that indicates both faith in their search and the hope that their money and labor investments will be rewarded. 'Twill be a great day for Snohomish county when the Sol Duc drill will tap the big pot that still lies hidden somewhere. Down near Chehalis bg operation I are going on in quest of oil and with: good omen of a successful find. In i other places, too, experiments worth I whi.le are being made, all of which; indicate that it is quite certain that success will crown the efforts that l are being made to this end'. In these days of modern methods of doing things in various branches of idustry these big pot holes in the bowels of the earth are treasure lakes of oil that have been stored away until such time as tapping comes, thus releasing it for the pur- pose of serving anc  enriching man- kind. The various places of exploitation insure intensity of faith. Index is to have such experiment, a similar search is also being made in What- corn county and what is so common to California cannot be so much a stranger to the subterranean strata of Washington. The crime wave problem is 90 per cent a problem of wayward! youth. You read today of a girl of eighteen and a boy of seventeen asking a storekeeper to change a $20 bll at 7:30 in the morning, and holding the man up wiCh guns after he ha  opened the safe to get change. The girl kept the storekeeper covered with her gun while the boy took $165 from the safe. Then they left. , That is "flaming youth" with a vengeance. In adkiition to holding up others and occasionally killing storekeepers, American youth shows a strange i- clination to suicide. Thomas J. O'Donnell, eighteen- year-old student in a Long Island high school, killed himself yesterday, saying he did/not want to burden his mother. Young O'Donnell is the tenth young man to commit suicide within a few weeks.

Briefly 00old The Bureau of StandardJs in Wash- II- ington has devised a paper that is said to be able to withstand the wear and tear of folding twice as long as the paper now used i United States currency.

Members of a religious sect in Si- beria reside underground/ from the age of forty till death. The cave dwellers call themselves 'Subter ranean Dwellers.'

According to Sir W. Arbuthnot Lane, noted British surgeon, fair- haired persons are more able to fight against disease than dark-haired ones. o Almost all of the world's supply of camphor, an important ingredient ha the manufacture of modern explo- sives for high-power guns, comes from Formosa. Many modern words and figures of speech are based upon the de- vou'ing of food. The word 'nag' ori- ginally meant to gnaw or nibble; 'fret' meant to eat or devour; 're- morse' Ineant to bite, and 'worry' to strangle.
