It is not difficult to understand
our duty to men, but our prejudice

Every time you do a thing that

Meeirf those who dislike vou.
It is a very rare man who can't
lay itl his misfortunes and mis
take on Providence or his kin.
A newspaper, like yeople, gets a
black mark for its sins of omission,
but little credit if it really does a
commendable tiling. In that case
it is only doing what it is paid for.
Phil. D. Armour is said to be the
largest commercial individual op
erator in the world. His transac
tions last year reached the enor
mous aggregate of $(53,000,000.
President Diaz, of Mexico, has
ftppWted a plenipotentiary to ar
range a reciprocity treaty with the
United States.
It is said that the late Geo. Jones
editor of the New York Times,
when offered 15,000,000 by Wm.
Tweed's emissary not to publish
certain documents, peremptorily
refused. -
If you wish to increase the siie
and prominence of your eyes, just
keep an account of the money you
spend foolishly, and add it up at
.the year's end.
If the editor should die and find
himself a ghost, who could he more
justly haunt than the man who
has been reading his paper for
years and never paid the small
Colonel Webster Flanagan, the
Texas gentleman who immortalized
himself by the query, "What are
we here for?" is at last almiit to get
.a satisfactory solution of bis ques

lector of customs at El Paso. -Ex.
A dollar dancing through the
country is a constant blessing,
making all things move, and keep
ing up life and health. It is bet
ter than a million dollars tied up
in" a vault, to lead to congestion
and stagnation.
The government rainmakers
lately expeiimenting in Western
Texas, have about despaired of
success, and private enterprise and
capital will further the test. The
parties undertaking the matter are
eaid to passes means sufficient,
and are determined to demonstrate
the success of the enterprise or
prove to the satisfaction of the
world its failure. If a man could
Vecome so scientific and inventive
as to produce rain at will he
would come nearer revolutionizing
the worlKthan the efforts of Frank
lin, Fulton and Morse combined.
To be courteous and respectful
to older personB, ladies, ministers
nd teachers is an evidence of self
lespect and good-raising.; and is
nothing lees than the consideration
due them.
How is it with our people? If
there is a lack of respect, there is a
cause for it. This principle of
eourteousness must be among the
first lsssons to the youth. Yet
there is duty encumbent upon
those persons who are set before us
as leaders. Those of them who
have not respect enough for digni
ty to cast off pinafores, paregoric
and pantalettes in names ought to
be reminded that the quality of
intellectual force thus indicated is
not quite enough for the teachers'
The marvel is that women do not
themselves feel the danger of in

names after they are grown beyond
the age of kittens and doggies.

It is a familliar saying: "Bless-'
ings brighten as they take their
flight." But is it not equally
true that blessings brighten as
they are delaysd? Is not the ex-,
pected good quite as sweet s
the departing good? Would we
not loose somewhat, even of this
worlds happiness, if our desire!
were granted as soon as conceived J
uu uur prayers answereu as soon
uttered? It is what we may call
the sunrise effect of happiness that
constitutes its Bweetest charm.
Jim Eili, of the Great Northern, has
a dear head. Being asked at Seattle,
where be would make the Pucifio
