Business Manager Friday, September J0, 1938 THE TROUT LAKE FAIR Elsewhere in this newspaper will be found a news report, not necessarily complete in de- tail, of the Trout Lake community fair =held last Friday. No doubt the good peopleof the Trout Lake .' neighborhood who promoted the local exposi- tion ave much of their time and labor to make the untertaking-a thing of pleasant and in- formative community interest. And -now that this groundwork has ben laid .various thoughtful persons hereabouts have suggest- ed that the scope of the Tr6nt Lak fag hould be extended to include western "t:kitat county in particular and, of cottrse, ,with .'. a welcome to the people of the county in gener- al One of the most important advantages of a community fair is that it promotes acquain- tance and fellowship betweea persons whose interests are akin and who should be neigh- bors. We suspect that an undertaking of the kind that the people of Trout Lake have pro- . meted would, with broadened score and sin- cere co-operation from other communities, have a tendency to centralize and harmonize collective county inferests. As we write this we are mindful, that interests of the people of all parts of Klickitat county are in a large measure eompositethat it would seem quite impossible to help one part of the county With- out, in the long run, helping all parts of the county, If we read correctly neither Klickitat nor Skamania county is of outstanding prestige in state and other public affairs as eompar.ed with more distinctive counties of the state.

IT HAPPENED IN AMERICA We read that in  brief released Friday by the United States Circuit Court of Ap- peals it was directed that payment of ap- proximately $200,000 in back wages be made to lum'ler mill strikers employed by the Car- lisle Lumber Company of Onalaska, Wash. These days $2(X),000 is a lot of money for any business firm to pay without return in value. This does not mean, of course, that there was anything wrong with the findings of the court. The courts, let us remind ourselves, but interpret our laws. In the case in question it appears, if we read correctly, the ,workers quit their jobs because of labor- union strife between the A; F. L. and C. I. O., -rival organizations. Under the circumstances one is inclined to wonder where the employers get off and jflst what might be expected .to happen if they were unable to find that $200,000 to pay for services not performed. Will those employers, in such event be sent to jail for contempt of court--or contempt of Madain Perkins, Harry Bridges, John L. " Lewis et alor something? O THE INNOCENT BYSTANDER As another illustration that our world is small and that, unavoidably, the interests of the people of civilized nations are necessarily allied, it is worth nting that the European war situation has caused grave uncertainty as to our export apple market. Less than a month ago price prospect of export apples grown hereabouts was considered to be reason- ably satisfactory. Now, we read, the well- being of local export growers is largely de.- pendent on whether, within the next .few weeks, .insane Europe "blows up" or settles down to sanity. Under the present outlook it would seem that there is, danger that the local producer of export apples may find him- self in the position of an innocent spectator of a free-fear-all fight who is swatted with a random brick.

"Monster From the Swamps" By FLOYD GIBBONS Famous Headline Hunter _ ELLS EVERYBODY: - Well, sir, if I seem to be continually harping on the fact that adventures are things you meet up with most frequently at home, you can put it down tQ the fact that I am continually be- hag reminded of it. Just the other day, while looking through a sheaf of letters I came to a story by a woman who had an adven- ture on a farm. Well--of course, there's nothing unusual in that. The funny part of it was that the farm was in this country, and the adventure was of a sort you'd only expect to run into in the jungles of Africa or South America, or to read about in some account of the grim battles between men and animals that the ancient Romans used to stage in their gladiatorial renas. The woman is Lottie Hawco---Mrs. John Hawco, of New York city. And the animal she fought with was a wild boar. I'll bet a lot of people including me--didn't know there were wild boars in this country. But there are, as any South Carolina farmer can tel/ you. How they got here is an interesting story. You see, the ordinary barnyard breed of pig is nothing in the world but a descendant of the wild boars you read about in tales of old-time Merrie England. Those boars were tamed and fat- tened and domesticated until, over the space of six or eight hun- dred years they became the fat, lazy, gluttonous animals you see in hog pens the country over. How Pigs Get Wild and Dangerous. But a pig will stay fat, and tame, and lazy only so long as he's kept in captivity and stuffed with chop suey from that well known galva- nized iron can out on the back porch. Once he gets loose and goes back to the woods again and has to rustle for his own food--well--then he gets thin and tough and rangy His tusks grow out, and in a generation or two he becomes a boar againjust as wild and as dangerous an ani- mal as ever he was when he roamed the marshes and forests of old England in the days of Robin Hood. There are plenty of those backsliding wild hogs in the back country of South'Carolina, and the farmers hunt them down and round them up ecause they destroy the nests of the wild turkeys in the neighborhood, -- The Boar Viciously Attacked Lottie's Mother, And. that brings us to Ltie Howco who, on February 16, 1931, was Visiting with her mother and her sister, Inez, on a farm near Os'oorn, ii S. C, , where a wild boar hunt was in progress. A bunch of men from the neighborhood had been out all day, comb- I hag the marshes with packs of dogs, roping boars and herding them-- alive--intb a big high-sided farm wagon. They had just returned home : with Six or seven boarsbig, vicious fellows, waist-high to a man and weighing three or four hundred pounds--animals that could break a , ma leg ith their huge etching, jaws. and which frequently did dis- 'embowel'the fierce dbgs tfiat hunted' them With ode sweeping blow - of their long, protruding tusks. The men backed the wagon up to a strong enclosure and were boars one by one and into by, thing i The men had unloosed the largest boar and were prodding it toward the pen when it turned, squeezed between the wagon and the enclosure an ruSh ott irate the Ien, gashing ts-great teeth and foaming at the ao !t headed raight for L0ttie s mother, wh0 was standing nr- est :the' n  lfo/e sh  co turn t0 run it was on aer, throwing her in heep t 0 @ie our, bitng at he samgelya It was the most terrible sight Lottie ever beheld in her llfe. Charlle, the foreman, stood with his mouth agape, too surprised for a even rove. Sster Inez, paralyzed with fright, clapped her hands over her. ears andbegan  to scream. Lottie herse was numb with terror, and for precious seconds--seconds that seemed like a 'lifetime--she staled rooted to the spot. All the rest of the,.men were on the other side of file pen, or on the wagon, too far away to reach the spot in time to do any god.

September 30, 1938 Winning the Prize "" EALTH, harmony, security, Joy, "9 and freedom are today within -'- reach of the spiritually sclen- Uric thinker. If we continue to be lleve that these desirable states are to be found in natter, or are to be gained by means of material meth- ods, we are already losers in the race. To believe that the determined human will la a factor in successful living Is a mistake which tends to rupture the harmony of mankind. Success, when built upon a founda- tion of materiallty, is temporary and may be likened to the house built upon the sand: "And the rain de- scended, and the floods came. and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it" (Matthew 7:27). Is not a prize or goal a point to- ward which we direct our thoughts and efforts? In the world of sports the goal is a winning-point, a defin- ite line, a fixed limit. In the world of thought goals assume greater Im- portance; and In the universe of spiritual understanding, the possible unfoldhent of the truths about Life, Truth, Love. and of man as God's image and likeness, Is without limits. In the divine universe every right thinker is a prize winner. Every good motive or aim has its reward, since every spiritual thought carries with it joy, peace, abundance, health. In the human sense of life man- kind strives to achieve a competence, health, harmony. Too often, in spite of sincere efforts, the goal seems al- ways just beyond one's reach. The proverbial ship with its cargo of rich rewards seems long overdue, or per- haps fades away on the horizon. Hope erelong becomes a cheat. But human sense,human outlining, hu- man sacrifice, human will,--ls the foundation of sand upon which no one can successfully erect a perma- nent structure. It Is only upon the rock of spiritual thinking that one may build a right sense of life. may achieve permanence, peace, security, and win the prize of harmonious ex- Istence. of eternal life and Joy, through understanding God's allness. The Scriptures offer a rich field of reading and study. In them we find practical wisdom, Inspired direc- tions for, and illuminating illustra- tions of, constructive living .... In Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures (p. 462) Mary Baker Eddy says, "Whoever would demon- strate the healing of Christian Sci- ence must abide strictly by lt rules, heed every statement, and advance from the rudiments laid down. There is nothing difficult nor toilsome in this task, when the way is pointed out; but self-denial, slncerlty, Chris- tianity, and persistence alone win the prize, as they usually do In every department of life." Christian Science teaches, as does the Bible, that man's origin in spirit- ual, not materlat. It teaches that hatred, envy, revenge, greed, malice, anger, are inflammatory states of thought. Like poison, these false be- liefs cause the distress, inharmony, loss, and death which seem to afflict mortals. Wherever fear or greed enter into a human problem, there enters also inharmony--disease of body, mind; business. Honesty. sincerity, geueroslty, sim- plicity, righteousness, carry a cargo of riches only dimly seen by mortals. Truthfulness. temperance, gentle- ness. coupled with the spiritual un- derstanding of Ltfe as God, and of man as the reflection of Life, bring us each day greater evidence of sup- ply, health, peace. It seems easier to desire freedom from distress than It is to gain the corrected mental outlook, the spirit- ual point of view which confers a realisatlon of present harmony. Every amateur begins with the' sim- ple rudiments of the art in which he desires to become proficient. Every prize winner expends eounUess hours upon practice, constant repeti- tion of those rudiments which are the foundations of his o1" her success. Divine Mind, God, Is the source from which we may draw unlimited Ideas, and these ideas are praecal, power- erful, productive. These ideas spon- taneously appear to the eonscl0us- hess which is practicing right, truth- fuL spiritual thinking. Healing in thought an inharmoni- ous past, fearing a dark future, liv- ing today in a sense of fear, cofit, slon, doubt, or of distrust In God's omnipotent love and tender ears for 'His chlktreti, What can our outlook be Surely, not a healthy, peaceful, stmure state of mlndl The false sense of life as being of or In matter can be removed from our lives by undertanding spiritual truth....
