ME.1 WUO COULD PROFIT.
FflW men are ' flattered by the
pure 'unaddlteiited' truth about
themselves and especial! when it
appears in print and it circulated
among their frienJs, Natarally
they wish men to think well of
them and are willing to encourage
their friends and the public gen '
erallj br covering up their own
weak and erring point with ample
charity and self acclamation.
When however, anyone - raiser a
doubt and publishes the short
comings of such an one. it is very
hard for him to pat himself In the
pi ice of his traduces and see him
self as others see him.
8elf esteem is often a deceiver,
bu. io this age of surprises men are
apt to take a few grains of salt be
fore swallowing whole, all that a
man may aver concerning his own
deeds ar.d accomplishments. Yet
be is not to be blamed for sounding
his own praisfls unless ha can
keep pretty mum about himself.
Sometimes a man may so con
ceutrate his efforts of thought upon
bis own importance and worth in a
community that ' his sphere of
Usefullness becomes purely irnagi-'
nary an be - himself wholly ' de
eel fed untfr ome' "unkind person
happens to butt into bim and waken
him sufficiently to sit up and take
notice, and even then h does not
part with his self-delusions so long
as he oau And anyor. to impress
them upoahim and pat him on the
back no matter if it is only his wife
or some other woman uiually a
wife is first undeceived.'
Sometimes several men enter
into a. self-delusion, similar to the
individual experience and from
circle wherein 'they lose account of
tiny and progiessand the demands
or their envtormeati to sncU an

some effective and harmless mean
for breaking such spells. And
above all be honest, without being
puffed up or self-deceived.
Sometimes even men who have
accepted the proprVv.tubTte oon-

was in accordance with the wishes of
the railroad people. The coiinnittee had
its first meeting Thursday night and
mapped out its work, but can not get it
in earnest until the locatiug engineers
get the line definitely located io Ver-
uonia. Mr. Lytle and engineer Davis
said that while the railroad company did
not want a site for a mill, since thpy ex
pected to do only a transportation busi
ness, yet there are men whom they know
who have money ready to come here and
put in a big mill just as soon as the rond
is completed to this point. So if our cit
izens really want a railroad the- prospect
seems flattering and it in np to them to
do poetiug to get It. Ina private con
versation with your correspondent Mr.
Lytle said: "If we can get the righi of
