Our old friend "Hoot" Lone of Boone
county, near St. Edward, was in the
city Tuesday on his way to Omaha. For
something like forty years Mr. Long has
been a tiller of Boone county soil, but
recently has rented his farm land and
sold off bis stock, etc Ho may return
from Omaha in an automobile, which
will be somewhat of a change compared
to the old ox team which brought him
over about the same trail many years
ago. In the early days "Hoot" was
reckoned one of the very best "cornfield
fiddlers" in all this region, and many
pleasant evenings were enjoyed by the
old guard at John Hubcr's livery barn
when In: would walk all the way from
Boone county bebide that ox team, and.
he never failed to bring along that "good
old fiddle." Talk about music. Wo
seldom hear "Turkey in the Straw," and
them tunes that made your feet move
whether you wanted them to or not.
Buck in those days "Hoot" ivaB also a
font racer, a ball pluyer and it mighty
line all around boy. His old friends
here aro pleated to know that he is now
taking life easy, and during the summer
will take his family for a eight seeing;
tour through the webt.
Thar-day afternoon Coroner Gaes i
hold an inquest over (JeorgoT. Mayboro
who waii killed by No. 11 last Tuesday
morning. No now facts were brought
out and the testimony of the trainmen
was to the effect that Mayboro had been
given ample warning and did not heed
it. After the inquest Mr. Mayboro's
cat wus started to its destination, being
in charge of Sam McFarland of this
city, who wan employed by the railroad
company. Friday evening S. S. Swiek-
urd of R-ohurg, Ore . arrived hero to
take ehai,:t of Mayboro's body and ar
r.n ' for having it .shipped to Oregon
ami J-o look after his boy. who was
fotu.d in the car Weduenday morning.
Th boy wau not informed of 1m father's
death, until just before they wore pre
paring to continue their journey, he
having been under the impression, that
his father had been left and would join
him in a day or two. Besides the eon
who wan accompanying him, Mayboro
leaves a wife and two daughters, the
latter having made the trip from Mich
igan to Oregon duriug the reduced rates
of last mouth.
Two amplications for the inheritance
tax, to boused for permanent roads, were
before the board of supervisors at their
meeting, held last week. Oreston town
ship nuked for $100 for a permanent road
lending to that village, the present road
being in bad condition a good share of
the time. Burrows township, through
Supervisor Schure. asked for So'Jo for r
stretch of road over which two rural
mail mutes pass, and which in next to
impassible during rainy weather. The
county board granted both of these re-ijue-h',
and the money will be turned
over t them as soon as available. And
in this connection, the board made pro-vi-ion
for the ?b00 recently appropriated
for the permanent road between this

Social and economic conditions have
ever been of deep interest. No one can
separate self from the influence ot his
age. There are two propositions in re
gard to the special and economic condi
tions of vital interest and should be ever
kept :n mind. They arc not ready made
in some far away sweat shop and deliver
ed to us. While state legislation may
blaze a path for a community, yet the
larger fact is that a community need not
follow the blazing ot a few hired politi
cians. A community may blaze its own
path Jbil turn its survey into a highway.
Every community makes its own social
conditions. A study of different locali
ties in the same state proves this. No
man should succumb to the conditions
of his sge. Men are made to mold not
to be molded by conditions. A man
must- not for a moment consent that bis
environment is greater than he. Men
must never admit that any condition
binds them to do wrong. Man must
realize that he can do right and be right.
Emanuel said, "The bouse of Sevoy
knows the way to defeat bnt not the
path to ilishonor." Most noble words
of a most noble man. Every man
should stand upright in true manliness
and know that ho can do right, can he
