The October American Magazine has a most entertaining sketch
of the life and character of William Kent, a congressman from
California, by Ray Stannard Baker.
The article was submitted to Mr. Kent before it was published
and the note he wrote Mr. Baker in regard to it is given at the end
of the article. Mr. Kent says that Mr. Baker has painted his virtues
in too bright colors and has not said enough about his short comings.
The following is an extract from Mr. Kent's letter :
"I have always distrusted the humanness and the judgment of
a man who is not capable of retiring into his closet and kicking
himself black and blue."
We heartily agree with Mr. Kent in this statement. It is well
that a man should have a good opinion of himself, but if he is really
a strong man he also knows his weaknesses. We all fall far short
of perfection, make many blunders and do many things of which
we should be thoroughly ashamed.
The man who realizes his mistakes and admits them to himself
and goes as Mr. Kent suggests into a closet and kicks himself black
and blue is to be trusted and will grow in strength and power. He
has a clear conception of right and wrong and his conscience is
awake and punishes him when he does wrong.
The man, who can not see his own short comings and faults,
who thinks that whatever he does is right, is certain to be narrow
and bigoted and also a dangerous man with whom to have dealings.
He has ceased to grow and his ideas of right and wrong will be so
warped that whatever will be for his personal benefit he will con
Every man should be his own most severe critic and should be
unwilling to pardon things in himself which he does not condemn
There is a great deal of wisdom in the statement made by Mr.
Kent and it will be found useful in measuring both yourself and
Who is the best citizen, the man who always stands by his party
or the man who always stands for the principles in which he
We unhesitatingly answer the man who stands for principles.
We know that many will disagree with us in this position and recog
nize the force and strength of their argument.
Party loyalty has always been held in high regard in this coun
try. Ours has been a government 'by parties. A man who fre
quently changes parties often loses in influence. People say they
do not know where to find him. A man should make a fight for the
things he wants in his party, but if he is defeated he should accept
defeat graciously, remain in the party and work for its success.
He does not need to give up his principles, but should continue to
fight each year to have his party adopt them.
This argument in our opinion is fallacious ; that the important
thing is to secure the adoption of the principles in which you believe
and not the success of any particular party or man. The running
of a nation, state, county or town is simply a business proposition.
It is the public business. Each man has or should have ideas and
views on how that business, which is his business, should be con
ducted. If he wants that business to succeed he is anxious to have
it conducted in the best possible manner c.nd should do every thing
in his power to bring this about. If the party with which he has
been associated is opposed to his plans, he should oppose that party
and support the party which comes nearest to his views. If the
principles of a party change, and they do as frequently as the lead
ers, he should change parties. The inconsistent man is the man
who stays with a party when it changes its principles and not the
one who changes when the party changes.
He serves his country best who advocates always that policy of
government which he believes best for the country.
A man owes no duty to a party. It is only a means where
by he can accomplish in government those things in which he
Stand by your principles regardless of the party which advo
A lot of young men and girls would profit by adopting "Safety
First" as their policy in social matters.

Look around and you will find about as many old bachelors who
are sensitive about their age and cut off a few years when telling
it, as you will women.
A great many people seem to be worried because it is authori
tatively stated that if the European War does not soon end, every
one will have to wear white hose, but to get the socks and not their
color is what worries us.
