registered many degrees too low. TLe

The annual Week of Self-Denial of
The Salvation Armv takes place this
coming week. This has for lb object
the raising of funds to extend the work
It is surprising that in so short a time
the Army has accomplished so much, but
we have come to the conclusion that
this is entirely due to the self-denying
lives and efforts of its officers. We know
that every branch ot Salvation Army
work is carefully bandied and its funds
properly accounted for; also that at the
head are men and women fitted to deal
with the problems that continually con
front them. The officers in charge of

WHAT A MOTHER. DID.
United States Senator William Al

In life in the popcorn business.
Behind the popcorn business, how
ever, and behind Smith was a wise
The Smith family back In the fifties
was very poor, and William was
obliged to quit school and help to
make the living.
But note this:
His mother made him believe, even
when he was a small boy, that despite
poverty he would be a successful
That faith put Into the boy's mind
by his mother's ' suggestion stayed
there and taught him the great art of
believing In himself. '
William began selling popcorn at
the county fair and at other gather
ings of the people. He prospered be
cause he believed In himself. So suc
cessful was the young merchant that
the little kitchen at Dowagiac was
transformed Into a factory for making
Then William organized and enlarg
ed the business, taking In another boy
as partner. ' This was before the day
of the common popcorn vender. Wil
liam was a pioneer.
The boys bought a horse and wagon,
fitted the wagon np with an organ and
made a business trip of the country.
William sang songs to attract the
crowds, the other boy playing the ac
companiment, and the business flour

It was while singing; and talking to
the people that young Smith prepared
to charm listening senates and learned
the trick of holding a crowd, a faculty

In Buffalo there lives a boy, now
some seven years old, who is the proud
owner of a bulldog designated as Mike
and a much prized pony. . Recently a
visitor, endeavoring to test the child's
knowledge of the value of money, said
'Willie, I'll give you 10 cents for
either Mike or the pony. . Which will
you sell?' '
Willie pondered for a moment.
"Gimme the dime. Ton can go get
the pony," he said.
The visitor handed over the coin and
then strolled out as though to go to
"Why. Willie! Would you rattier he
should have your pony than Mike, and
do you think 10 cents is enough for
pony V his mother protested.
Willie paused at the door and gi
"Ton know Mike ts out at the baa.
an' if any one can take that pony oat
while he's there he's welcome to htm.
I'd 'a' sold him for a cent!" Harper's.

01 the 25th inst there are some re
marks in regard to the condition of
the Lahaina roads.
I think it is unfair tj blame the
present, or the former, Superviso
of Lahaina for these bad conditions
It is a well known fact that during
the lust two years Lahaina has not
had her fair share of road money
owing to a combination of three
memlxjrs of the Board our money
has gone for the benefit of other dis
I am informed on the very best
of authority that at a meeting of
the Board of Supervisors in the ear
ly part of this year, there was jin
attempt made to get $31,000.00 out
of $40,000.00 for the district of Ma
kawno alone, leaving only $2,000.00
for the district of Lahaina. Is this
jusi or a square deal? What can
any Supervisor do without money?
