WICKED of the x things
IMAGINATION that ia an abom
ination to the
Lord is "a heart that deviseth
wicked imaginations." It is also
an abomination to everybody. And
there is, unfortunately too much
r of it going on in every communi
ty even our own is not entirely
free from the scourge. Some people
there are who seem toenjoy the
fancy that a person is living a
mean, deceitful life. No fact back
of it; nothing but a dislike or low
suspicion. When a person can har
bor such imaginings it naturally
follows that such an individual is
even more guilty than the person
under suspicion. When one's heart
gets t o breeding suspicions, all
noble emotions are excluded. It
would be ten times better that we
think well of a man, even it we are
mistaken, .than to think ill of him.
These wicked imaginations are
mean things to have in one's heart,
even though there may be some
warrant for them, for they spoil
the tenderest and sweetest senti
ments. We want a clean, open
heart all the time; we want the
sunlit brei'zes t o blow through
and freshen it up and kill off the
wild and poisonous vermin that
find lodgement in there. That is
't h e better life, we don't want
people coming to us with their
hearts full of venom and spurting
it into our face.

LUXURY ns have "tits of the
OF " 4 blues" once i n awhile.
SORROW Sometimes w e make a
luxury of sorrow: we pet
and nurse and darjdle the real or
supposed affliction and make it our
coddled darling, our spoiled child.
It is true, too, that we actually re
sent the efforts of any one to clear
away the fog and show us that the
sun is shining and that to be left
alone as a traveler drowsily perish
ing in a snow bank. Yet if we had
the courage everytime the spell
came on Us we would sit down as
Robinson Crusoe did, and put in
paralled columns, our reasons for
joy and our causes for repining.
And then we would be sure to
find how much of the first over
lapped the second.
When we" feel ' blue," if we look
hard, w e will discover nothing
there but the dreary, melancholy
color. If we were to look up we
would see that it isn't the world
that's blue; but is only the skv. If
we must havi; "the blues," let us
have the heavenlv blues.
writer in an edu
cational p u 1) 1 i c
ation has this to
say concering the
cotton industry hi Hawaii:
"By crowing the Peruvian trees with
our sea' island cotton a variety has been
developed which seems to be just right
for the climate of Hawaii, As there are
no very cold winters there, (though liifct
year for the (irst timo in many years there
appeared snow on the summits of IIu.
waii's mountains) the cotton-trees do not
dio down, but keep on growing from
year to year the same as our apple trees.
Cotton from these trees has run as high
as at the rate of HiOQ pounds to the acre.
. In fact the cotton tree in some parts of
, Hawaii tends to overproduction. The
branches have to be propped up, and as
many as 1200 bolls have leen counted
on a single tree."
A writer in one of our big ex
t changes says that it is quite im
possible that the democratic party
in congress should do anything
satisfactory with the tariff because
it doesn't comprehend the nature
and import of a tariff. That's right.
The only people that have any
sense at all about anything at all
were all in the republican party.
In fact the republican party got so
darned smart that it couldn't hold
all of its smart men and it over
flowed into a third party. I

What hypocrisy I About this
time of year, we are talking about

the Titanic last April, visited the
U. S. Senate recently and the
question came up whether an En

to us as if a man like Rastron had
a right to most anything on this
earth and a right to walk right in
to Heaven when he got ready.

87 Pounds of Sugar
Each person in the United States
last year used 87 pounds of sugar
as the per capital consumption of
this article having increased from
80 pounds in 1910, 59 pounds in
1900, and 39.5 pounds in 1880, so
say statistics gathered by the
Bureau of Foreign and Domestic
The total sugar consumption
this year, will exceed 8,000,000,000
pounds, whereas in 1900 only
4,000,000,000 were used. One-
fourth of this sugar come from the
United States proper, another
fourth from Hawaii and Porto
Rico, and the remainder from
foreign countries, chiefly Cuba.
A large increase, i n the past
year in the production o f beet
sugar is also noted, 1,000,000,000
pounds having been raised against
1,000,000,000 pounds in 1910, and
less than half that amount in 1904.

John Bull is raising a disturbance
over the proposal of Uncle Sam t
allow the American coast vessels
to ride free through the Panama
canal and claims that it is a viola
tion of the Hay-Pauncefote treaty.
Below we print from the Kansas
Citv Star the provisions of t h e
The Hay-Pauncefote treaty was
signed November 18, 1901, and
ratified by the United States senate
the following month. It derives
its name from John Hay, secretary
o f state, who represented the
United States, and Lord Julian
Pauncefote, British minister a t
Washington, w h o represented
Great Britain. I t annulled the
Clayton-Bulwer treaty, entered in
to between the United States and
Great Britain, April 19, 1850, in
order to remove any objection that
might arise out of the said treaty
to the construction of an Atlantic
Thenew treaty provided that the
United States should build the
canal and have the exclusive right
of providing for its regulation and
management. For the neutraliza
tion of the canal the United States
adopted substantially the rules
fixed in the convention of Con
stantinople (1888) regarding navi
gation of the Suez canal, thus pro
viding that the new canal should
be open to vessels of commerce and
war of all nations, that it should
never be blockaded nor any act of
hostility be committed in it; that
vessels of w a r o f belligerents
should not revictual or take on
stores in it, unless absolutely
necessary, and that no belligerent
should disembark troops or muni
tions of war in the canal, except
under special circumstances. It
was furthermore agreed that no
change of territorial sovereignty
or of international relations of the
country or countries traversed by
the canal should affect the principle
of :ts neutralization.
The Clayton-Bulwer treaty,
which the Hay-Pauncefote
superseded, provided, among other
things, that neither the United
States nor Great Britain should
have exclusive control over an At
lantic-Pacific canal, and that neith
er should occupy, fortify, colonize
or assume dominion over the
territory through which such canal
should pass. Almost from the
time this treaty was signed disputes
arose. These were smoothed over
in 1860, but difficulties arose again
at the close of the civil war.
In 1881 Secretary of State
Blaine contended that any in
teroceanic canal across the Amer
ican isthmus should be under the
control of the United States, and
that the Clayton-Bulwer treaty
should be modified in view of the
changed conditions since 1850. In
the following year Secretary
Frelinehuysen contended that the
treaty was no longer binding on
either party, t o which Lord
Granville, on the part of Great
Britain, objected that it must be
binding since it had never been
The controversy continued until
the signing of the Hay-Pauncefote
treaty, definitely superseding the
