THE FIRST THOUSAND DOLLARS.
The following article, which ap
pears in a commercial collego paper,
recommends itself for the very sound
sense it expresses, and wo reproduce
it for young men for the intrinsic
value it possess"", as a straightforward
appeal to those who are starting out
in life. There are so many good
points that we advise our young read
ers to give "the first thousand dollars"
a careful perusal:
The first thousand dollars that a
young man, after going out into the
world to act for himself, earns and
saves, will generally settle the ques
tion of business life with him. There
maybe exceptions to this statement,
jet, for a rule, we think it will hold
The first condition is that the young
man actually earns the thousand dol
lars in question. He does not inherit
this sum, It does not come to him
by a streak of good luck, as the result
of a fortunate venture in the purchase
and sale of a hundred shares of stock.
It is the fruit of personal industry.
He gives his time and his labor for it
While ho is thus earning and saving
it, ho must earn two or three, or per
haps four times as much to pay his
current expenses. He is consequently
held sternly to the task of industry for
a considerable period. The direct
consequence to him is steady, con
tinuous and solid discipline in the
habit of industry in patient, persist
ent, forecasting and self-denying ef
fort, breaking up allthe tendencies to
indolence and frivolity, and making
him an earnest and watchful econ
omist of time.
He not only learns how to work, but
he also acquires the love for the work;
and, moreover, ho learns the value of
the sum which he has thus saved ont
of his earnings. He has toiled for it;
he has observed its slow increase from
time to time: and in his estimate it
represents so many months or years
of practical labor. His ideas of life
are shaped by his own experience.
These natural effects of earning the
first thousand dollars we hold to be
very large benefits. They are just the
qualities of mind and body which are
most likely to secure business success
in after years. They constitute the
best practical education which a man
can have as a worker in this working
world. They are gained in season for
life's purpose at the opening period,
just when they are wanted, when
foolish notions are most likely to mis
lead an inexperienced brain, and
when, too, there is a full opportunity
for expansion and development in af
Men have but one life to live; and
hence they start from opening man
hood but once. And the manner in
which they start, the purpose -which
they have in view, and the habits they
form, will ordinarily determine the
entire sequel of their career on earth.
To succeed, men must have the ele
ments of success in themselves. One
great reason why there are so many
useless, inefficient and poverty-stricken
men on earth or, rather, boys,
seeming to be men consists in the
simple fact that they did not start
right A popular reason why the
children of the rich so frequently
amount to nothing may bo found in
the luxury and the indolence which
marked the commencement of their
lives. It is the law of God that wo
should be workers ou earth; and no
one so well consults the best develop
ment of his being as when he conforms
his practice to this law. The workers
in some suitable sphere are the only
really strong men in this world.
Ths latest sensation in the religions
world is from a cliurcb. congress in
England. In this congress one of the
English canons, Isaac Taylor, read a
paper on "Islam in Africa." Among
other things he said: "Over a large
part of the world Islamism as a mis
sionary religion is more successful
than Christianity. Christianity in
some sections is actually receding be
fore its rival." The faith of Islam al
ready extends from the Atlantic to
tho Pacific It controls 50,000,000 out
of 150,000,000 in India, and more than
half of all Africans. It is not the
dash and spread of early Moham
medanism that he finds hard to ex
plain, but its continued hold. "An
African tribe once converted to Islam
never embraces Christianity. Though
quite unfitted for the higher races, it
is eminently adapted to be a civilizing
and elevating religion for barbarous
tribes." Not content with these start
ling words, canon Taylor goes on to
say: "Islam has done more for civil
ization than has Christianity." "Is
lam is the most powerful total absti
nence association in the world, where
as the extension of European trade
means the extension of drunkenness
and vice and the degradation of the
people." "Islam introduces a knowl-
edge of reading and writing, decent
clothing, personal cleanliness, veracity
and self-respect Its restraining ef
fects are marvelous." "We ought to
begin by recognizing tho fact that
Islam is not an anti-Christian faith,
but a half-Christian faith." "Islam
preaches a practical brotherhood
tho social equality of all Moslems. A
Christian convert is not regarded as a
social equal, but the Moslem Brother
hood is a reality." Such an address
by a learned canon of the church a
man of tho highest standing and a
traveler in the lands of which ho
speaks, has stirred up an immense
amount of comment and some ill-feeling.
THE WESTERN GIRL.
A Caricature of the Newspaper Stories of
A pleasing story of a beautiful and
accomplished young lady at St Yin-
cent, Minn., is told by a special dis
patch, and it comes to us like a cool j
foundation in a prohibition state.
It seems that the lady's name is Miss
Lillian Blake, daughter of H. C.
Blake, and that, in words of the dis
patch, "after helping her father stack
193 loads of wheat yesterday," she
went over in Geroux's swamp alono
in the afternoon to snatch a half-hour
of rest and recreation. She took
her father's shotgun with her and, as
the special has it, "killed six largo
and desperate bears."
The bears didn't want to fight, but,
durn 'em they had to. The first one
tried to crawl into a hollow log and
dodge the issue, but airy, fairy Lil
lian grabbed him by the hind leg, and
just about the same as pulled the
limb off tho critter. Then he chang
ed his mind, backed out and bowed
his head to the shock.
It was a red day for bear, especially
in Geroux's swamp.
On that awful day, throughout the
length and breadth of Colonel Ger
oux's cool and popular swamp, noth
ing could be hear but the deep ag
onizing groans of dying bears.
And they do say, sort of privately,
ai,d some as if they did not expect us
to believe it, that on her way home,
while dragging the whole Geroux
swamp bear family, this timid and
modest little Minnesota girl ran down
two gray wolves and chased a party of
six tramps along the railroad for
three miles. Still some Minnesota
editors will sit around and write
about the decadence of our girls and
But if these editors will just stop
long enough to put their ears to the
ground they will discover that the
rest of the country isn't saying a
word about the decadence of the
A AVomaii' Discovery.
"Another wonderful discovery has
been made and that too by a lady in
this county. Disease fastened its clutch
es upon her and for seven jears she
withstood its severest tests, but her vi
tal organs were undermined and death
seemed imminent For three months
she coughed incessantly and could not
sleep. She bought of us a bottle of Dr,
King's New Discovery for Consump
tion and was so much relieved on tak
ing first dose that &he slept all night
and with one bottle has been miracu
lously cured. Iler name is Mrs. Luther

The matter of extortionate charges
for tug boat services at the mouth of
the Columbia is becoming a serious
one. At present it costs 14s 6d per
ton more to send wheat from Port
land to Liverpool than from San
Francisco. It is rumored that mana
ger Potter, of the Union Pacific is
about to take the tug-boat business
in hand, and that it he does not some
one else will. There ought to be two
good tugs at the mouth of tho Colum
bia which would contract to tow ships
to Portland back to sea at reasonable
rates. It is not necessary that the
work be done cheaply, but reasonably.
