The Milwaukee Sentinel thinks
that it is a little unreasonable to
evpect the average man to keep
track of all hi family relations.
There are gunealogical cranks who
ilo this, who keep a couiplute re
cord of all blood and marriage
lies, who have family trees with
branches running off' into tho re
motest connections to that they
can toll in a moment nil about
their brothers-inlaw both lirst and
kccoikI hand and all that. Hut
most men are too busy looking
after their immediate personal af
fairs to devote any tune to this
Bort of thing.
Kvory person admires courage
mid in some form or other in tliu
live of every ono this desirable
(inalitv is oxhibitcd in soino do-
cree. No class of nconlo exhibit i
courage of a better quality or to a
greater degree than those hardy
anil honest men nnd women who
are the poineers of civilization in
n now country. They must leave
their homes nnd loved ones for un
certainties of life in a now. land.
When they know that it mtut bo
years before tho luxuries, or per
haps many of the comforts of civ
ilization can reach them. They
have no society and perhaps al
most no neighbors. Day by day
and week by week by hard work
the littlo clearing around thoir
cabin grows larger but tho change
from wilderness to cultivated farm
is very slow and privations and
discomforts r.ro many before the
railroad and tho town come close
nnd make the farm hinds of great i
value as additions to the growing j
city and the owner, a man of
