ADVERTISING RATES ON APPLICATION The Progressive Situation Is the wave of progressivism that is now sweeping the country to rise still higher and tear away the political rub: bish that litters the shore of politics, or is it soon to recede like the Populist movement, like the Greenback wave, like the reform movements that pre- ceded the War of '61? The answer must be found in the at- titude of its leaders. If they value per- sonal and present success in-the get- Ling of offices rather than the abiding results that come from a battle for principle; if they hedge, and trim, and compromise; if they doubt their vision and select candidates who will give the shadow of reform where the people de- mand the substance, then this wave of reform will recede, and those who rode upon its crest to popularity and near- success will be forgotten. If, on the other hand, the leaders of the move- ment know and interpret the will of the people; if they hew a clean" line of division between their principles on the one hand and the specious doctrine of compromise on the other, so that no reactionary will dare to straddle the gap, they will succeed. And not un- 1 they do this. To paraphrase the words of a pro- gressive of another day "No party can exist half progressive and half reac- tionary; it will soon become all one thing or all the other," The line of cleavage between the progressive and reactionary camps in the two old par- ties is absolute, clean down thru the foundation structure. The Republican prty must throw out its place seek- e'. s and job-holders, its revenue states: man and its politicians for pie, it must oemm to live in its past, or it will cease to live at all. The Democratic party, with a chance for national victory be- fore it, its feet wallowing in the trough of the national treasury, has before it the same chance for life in the future, or the same destruction. Meanwhile the politicians straddle and: balance, like acrobats in the edge of a crater. The people themselves are sound-- their political sense is not corrupt. They are tired of delay. They will have reform! Shall it be given them by these self-appointed -leaders. of the Iwogresaive movement, or. must they take the initiative, march out of the okl parties, write a new platform that "God meant the Nation for the peo- ple," and so win? .- Progressivism that is tied to party must fail. Those who believe in prog- are today in a large majority, but party faction serves to divide their strength and delay their victory. Either the leaders within the two old parties must destroy the reactionary machines that now control, or else they must submit and be beaten, or, as the 6hal and apparantly the only i,a!terna- Cimmberlain's Cough Remedy the Most Popular Because it is the Best "I have sold Chamberlain's Cough Remedy for the past eight years and find it to be one of the best selling med- icines on the market.

The time for decision has come.--F. S. 8r H. Don't Do It The man who wants to belittle him- self in the estimation of his friends and fellow townsmen (and of himself as well) can surely do so by seeking re- venge for any and all real or fancied wrongs and slights. In Short, to "get even" with his neighbor. To every public question there are two sides-- one right, one wrong. To every mis- understanding the rule holds good. You may honestly think that someone has really wronged you, yet nine times out of ten, when all the facts are known, the "other fellow" is also sure that you have not treated him just right. In the courts of the land are daily started legal proceedings that will for all times embitter the lives of those who are the parties thereto. In a great majority of these cases a cool head, wise counsel, a littlo yielding and a lit- tle "taklin' it over" would have saved all these heartaches. This done, many times it would be found that no wrong or harm was ever intended. Sometimes the close friends of many years have been driven apart simply because some thoughtless person or malicious meddler has let his tongue wag. The wrong done, and the busybody is too cowardly or too proud to go around and mend the serious wrong he has done. Too often these separations come from matters plitical. Too often we believe the "campaign lie," when told about a friend and neighbor. Let us not con- demn before going to the "other fel- low!' and calmly and dispassionately iearn first hand the real facts. Life is too shortto spemt it:in hate, quarrels and pett3 bickeHngs.

Kent Beattie, botanist at the State College and Experiment Station has prepared the following statement as an answer to many re- quests for information as how to combat dandelions in lawns: The common dandelion is on the in- crease as a pest in the lawns of Eastern Washington. It is a very hard plant to eradicate. It perpetuates itself by a large, feshy root which is difficult to kill and this must be removed before one can get rid of the plant. A very common method is to dig out as much of the root as possible with a long, heavy knife, or with a tool called a spud, and then put a few drops of coal oil on the cut surface of the roots. In many cases the coal oil kills that part of the root which remains. It is, how- ever, not perfectly successful. Some persons have tried sulphuric acid on the roots. This is a difficult thing to handle for it is very injurious to the hands and to the person. It usually kills the dan- delion roots, but in some cases they es- cape. Recently a good many people have tried spraying for dandelions, and this is recommended by some. The method used is to make a solution of iron sul- phate, two pounds to one gallon of water. Apply this to the lawn with a spray pump so that it will make a fine mist. Some people put half an ounce of sulphuric acid in each gallon of the spray. In any event, all this spray can do is to kill the tops. If, however, one should begin in the spring and kill the tops with the spray and then repeat the process as often as new ones appear, one ought in time to get rid of the roots by starving them out. The spray does little or no injury to lawn grass and clover. It sometimes blackens the ed- ges of the leaves a little, but the dam- age is never serious. From the stand- point of cheapness and ease of applica- tion at least, this is probably the best method in fighting the dandelion. JOSEPH V. BIRD LAWYER Notary Public 406 American Bank Bldg.
