A Curious Legend.

servant being buried at seven of the
cloeke in the morning, and the grave
standing open for more dead Commodi

evening he was got up alive againe by
a strange miracle, which, to be true
and certaine, hundreds of people can
testifie that sawe him acte like a coun

torian explained that the name was
merely a corruption of Desmond's

arguments at the corner, and he saw

in such a public place it was the more

was at its height and his words the

fellow turned to face him and quietly

Many children are never taught to

That is why we meet with and suffer

thoughtful and careful consideration.

Do you remember the legend about
that ancient Greek from whom Apollo
took "the backward looking mind?"
All things became new.
The world was transformed to that
Greek. For the first time he saw how
beautiful was the world. Flowers he
had not yet seen bloomed under his
feet, new stars' shone over his head,
and the changing moods pf nature
filled him with delight.
The change was not in the world,
but in the Greek. His mind had been
turned backward to the happiness and
the grief of the past. Now he looked"
outward and forward to the beauty
and the joy all about him.
In our day is no Apollo to take away
the backward looking mind, more's
But the symbolism holds.
Many of us need to have our minds
I know a woman who persists in
looking backward and who always
tells of a day when her people were
rich and accustomed to many luxuries
she is' now denied. She is constantly
deploring a situation she cannot help.
She does not live save in a former day.
Worse than Lot's wife, who took a
single look over her shoulder, she al
ways faces backward.
I know a man whose constant theme
of regret is the fact thr.t he ever
changed his business. H did well, he
says, at the old place and was a fool (o
change. Certainly he is doing little
good at his new place, largely for the
reason that he is forever harking back
ward to the old.
He needs an Apollo.
Older persons are apt to foster the
backward looking habit. Says grand
pa from his chimney corner: "There
are no days like the good old days.
Now, when I was young"
He magnifies the past, minimizes the
present and omits the future. He is
dying, like some trees, at the top.
You cannot change the past, but you
can discount the present and spoil the
future by refusing to live in the one
and to face the other.
To be successful, to stay young, to
Bnd happiness, cultivate (he outward
looking, forward looking mind.
Face the sun.
When you stand with your back to if
the shadow is in' front of you. When
you face the sun the shadow is behind.
She Before we married you called
me an angel. He I know I did, but it
was a case of mistaken identity.
SINGLE TAX AND DOG

These be the days of mad dogs and

So Arcadian and Utopian must British

scorn, would be these remittance men
of remittance men, these salaried
workers of Joseph Fels.
And since Mr. Fels is soon to visit
us and will add his paeans of praise
to the wonders of taxation in British
Columbia suppose we stop soaring in
the cloud and tell the facts.
One of these facts Is that British
Columbia has not Single Tax. On the
contrary, it has 15 separate and dis
tinct ways and means of taxation, or
That leads me to support the En
terprise in its charge that neither
TJ'Ren nor his cohorts stick sufficient

inces of British Columbia and Alberta
which boast of the magic constructive
influence of Single Tax, were all but
dead, yet Vancouver had what some
are pleased to call Single Tax. The
cities of Oregon and Washington had
their boom, had reached a point in
development equal to and even in ad
vance of the resources from which
they drew their supports.
A halt was necessary.
Just at this time Western Canada
and British Columbia began to awak
en, stimulated by the coming of the
Grand Trunk Pacific, the Canadian
Northern, and the extensions of the
Canadian Pacific, and by the expendi
ture of over $100,000,000 by these dif
ferent railroad companies, together
with vast undeveloped resources.
With her forests, mines, and great
agricultural belts of free land yet un
touched, all of which were made avail
able by the coming of the railroad,
and a climate that is congenial, is it
to be wondered that the cities of Brit
ish Columbia should have a marvelous
growth? Is it to be wondered that
the people of Oregon and Washington
should go to British Columbia where
free land may be obtained where an
army of laborers is required to bring
the Province of British Columbia to
that state of development equal to
Oregon or Washington?
With all of these resources, and in
addition there to the borrowing power
of the cities of British Columbia equal
to 20 per cent of the assessed valua
tion; and where the assessment is
full value, using that power up to the
limit, to the extent that, should Port
land or Seattle or any of the cities of
the Northwest indulge in such reck

land or Seattle would now have a
bonded indebtedness of over $100,000,

ing permits of Vancouver and Victoria
and the general activities of British
Columbia are what they are?
This influx of capital has all happen
ed within a few years. But the great
day of reckonening is close at hand
for the cities of British Columbia. The
magic of the so-called Single Tax will
not save them. They have not less

UPON TEXAS CITY
EL PASO, Tex., Aug. 3. About 50
shots were exchanged between Unit
ed States soldiers and unidentified
men from the Mexican side of the riv
er last night in East -El Paso.' No
one was hit. There were no arrests
Three shots were fired from the
Mexican side, striking a house belong
ing to C. H. Cole.
After the first three or four shots
were fired, the soldiers on guard on
the American side opened fire. The
bullets then came faster from the
Mexican side, one of them striking A.
D. Martinez' house. The houses of
Messrs. Curtis, Williams and Yonkers
near the river were stnick.by bullets
as was the roof of one of the El Paso,
After the persons on the Mexican
side, of the river had fired 30 or 40
times they ceased, and the American
soldiers went toward the river to in
vestigate. At this moment a posse, composed
of Sheriff Peyton J. Edwards, and dep
uties, arrived, and started a search of
thick brush growing in the old river
bed. No trace of the men who fired
from the Mexican side could be found.
The police officers returned, leaving
further investigation to the soldiers.
Captain D. G. Berry, who was in
command of the United States guards
has started an investigation. It has
been reported that the firing was done
by Mexican rebels to attract attention
of American soldiers to a spot on the
Rio Grande, while rebel "gun-runners"
crossed at another point, but this has
not been confirmed officially.
