MANY THANKS
Two weeks ago wo sent out let
ters to nil our irlends whoto sub
scriptions were overdue, and, biiug
unablo to answer nil personally who
havo replied, wo think a word to
them In our editorial columns Is not
amiss.
Onco when In charge of a school
and making a plea lor gifts, the Edi
tor, then the President ot the school,
wrote to some friend, who could not
send money but who sunt encourag
ing letters, that the letters weru
nearly as good as the money after
all. And.when receiving these letters
In respouso to our calls, we were
made to realize how much better a
uollar looks when It Is accompanied
by so many good wishes, as was tho
caso with nearly every dollar receiv
ed. And our subscribers made us feci
better In many ways. Tuey remember
ed, no doubt, what our chief fear was
on taking charge or The Citizen that
wo would labor in tho dark, never
knowing Jutt how our readers fe'l
about tho efforts that we aro making
to give a good paper. Hut theso let
ters aro of a nature moro encourag
ing than wo ever expected.
Thanks, many thanks.
UGLY HABITS
There Is hardly anyone but that
has lallen Into some ugly habit,
while many are afflicted with practi
cally tho whole category of ills
agreeable or ugly, If not bad habits.
Several years ago it was possible
to flud In homes and in schools n
l'.ttlo book known us "Good Morals
and Gentle Manners," but It Is to
bo doubted If tills book or any book
that seeks to accomplish what it did
U circulating very largely now, and
bo Americans are beUig classed as
the least pollto peoplo in tho world.
But it is not politeness merely that
we wish to speak about, but my
habits. In tho first place '.hero 's
tho habit, of constantly fingering one's
mouth or twisting a mustache, tf
the person has not gotten over the
mustache habit. And closely as
sociated with this habit is the one of
biting tho finger nails ona by tho
way that seems to be as hard to
break away from as tho use of
tobacco or tho drinking of whiskey.
Tho writer has never seen a per
son afflicted with this habit, but
ho has wished to impress upon the
sufferer tho words of tho Scotch poet,
"Wad Bomo power tho glftlo gl'us
To seo ourcels as Ithers see us."
An affliction that Is quite as ug
ly, and possibly even moro common,
li also a closely related one, that
of flugerlug tho nose. It Is not too
severo to say that this is oxcecdlng
ly disgusting, and anyone who Is ever
thoughtful or careful, will uot bo
guilty of It In company, at least.
Might it not bo said also that 11 is
filthy. .
HEALTHY PROTESTS
Wo are a longsufferlng people, aud
it takes a good deal to arouse a
protest at conditions that surround
us.
Iuqulrles aro going from mouth to
mouth as to why promiscuous shoot
ing is allowed upon tho highways
I.ear Dcrea, aud some times ou tho
streets in various parts of tho town
at night, somo times ou successive
nights and at intervals every few
nights. Wo wore told tho other day
of a curtain part of tho towu that has
been terrorized, tho citizens belug
driven Into their homes.
Wo havo heard a number of peo
ple speak ot this, aud other offenses,
and, so far as they can seo, no ef
fort ha ben made to checK it, und
the common Impression is that wo pa
enough taxes for protection, but wo
aro not getting proier returns
our money.
Protests aro common also,' possibly
not to tho proper ones, ngnlnst the
reckless driving of automobiles ni.il
motorcycles through tho town. Somo
of theso days some ono will bo killed
and then wo shall rlso in our Indigna
tion nnd wrath. It would not be a
bad idea If tho present protests wore
sounded a little louder, nnd notion
tnken now. It In said that there Is
an ordlnanco controlling tho speed
of motorcycles, but, bo far as our In
formants know, no effort has been
mado to enforco It, whilo frequently
machines aro driven thru tho ninln
streets of tho town at a speed of
forty to fifty miles, and possibly a
greater speed In somo Instances. A
number of peoplo havo been .mnocd
at tho recklessness of bicycle users,
nlso. They frequently flip by on tho
slde-wnlks and across tho side-walks,
before or behind pedestrians, not
giving 11 warning, and making them
selves nuisances generally.
Tho peoplo who aro protesting real
lzo that tho regulation of theso things
la not everybody's business. Tho
public has chosen certain people fpr
theso services, and has delegated to
them this work, and Is paying thun
for It, and It Is asking now, rather,
, quietly, to bo sure, but will ask a
Uttlo moro loudly soon, If it does not
get what It is paying for, that its
servants get busy.

THE GREATEST DISCOVERY.
Can you name, offhand, tho seven
wonders of the ancient world that yotf
knew so well ns a schoolboy?
Try It.
There wero tho Egyptian pyramids,
tho Colossus of Ithodes, the hanglug
I gardens of Babylon, tho temple of
j DIaua at Ephcsus, and
I Well, what's tho odds?
Those seven wonders wero tho work
of slaves done under tho lash, nnd
I millions mourned nnd died to mnko
them possible.
; When It comes to an enumeration of
: the wonders of the modern world
that's different. The modern world
, has not only seven, but seventy times
seven, wonders, nil of which put to
1 shame the curios of the ancients,
j Itecently a selentllic magazine asked
I 1,000 eminent scholars aud scientists
j of the whole world to select the seven
modern wonders,
j This wns the result:
I Among the 700 answers wireless to
j legraphy comes first with 211 votes;
I next tho telephone, with 1SD votes;
1 then radium, Km: antiseptics und nntl.
1 toxin, 140; spectrum analysis, l'jil; tho
X ray, 111; tho Panama canal, 100
Wonders indeed, but there are others.
There's the electric light. Realize tho
worth of that discovery which has re
duced crime. Insured safety, banished
ghosts, promoted order nnd social up
lift. Then note this fact:
Tho wonders of tho modern world
have not wrought suffering, but havo
relieved pain und advanced the well
being of tho race. The uutltoxlu which
saves ono child from death by diph
theria Is worth moro tlinu tho pyra
mids. And the greatest of these?
It Is not named at all. It Is not of
Invention, great us that Is. The great
est wonder of the modern world Is n
moral discovery. And that Is
Tho' dawning consciousness of tho
brotherhood of man!
This age, which hns bullded asylums
and homes and refuges, and founded
countless societies for practical charity
this age, in tho tendency of Its thought
and feeling, In the framing of Its luws,
In Its demand for social welfare. Is be
ginning tho work ot real Christianity
twenty centuries after It was founded.
This ngo Is beginning to understand
what tho ancient world never could
understand-that the most valuablo
thing In tho universe is a man.

1 things. Her faculty In that dlroctlon
' amounts to genius. In four days Inst
woek sho separated herself from
three gloves, two pins, ono pocket
book, thirteen hnndkeithlefs and nn
ovorshoo. Sho '.ell all her friends
! that they must help cure her of tho
! habit, I tried to help her.
u wore colim to a danco. Wo
wero lato; that Is. Elizabeth was lato.
I call her Elizabeth only when I wrlto
or think of her. for you Imvo to know
a girl a long tlm j theso dnys before
you can call her cimifortnbly by hor
first nanio to her faco. I had been
entertaining her father, who I know
would rather read tho evening papor,
for a full half hour bfforo sho
fluttered Into tho library In her eve
ning clothes and from there out Into
tho carriage, all In a tremendous
hurry. 1 picked up one of her long
gloves ns 1 followed and silently put
In Into my pocket.
Wo wore nearly at our hiwtew' be
fore she dlsiovorod her Rloo was
mining. "(Ih. oh." she ld. "Thu next
tlmo I lone anything I want to bo
punlahed terribly for It."
"I should Fay nn evmilne; with ono
glove off and one glove on would bo

plied. "
"How did ou kwjw it wa my
glove?"
"It was the tly thine; that you
didn't have fanHl on."
"l'tn-hnrM I've rirotnwd It In tho

We lookwl. but It wasn't thore.
"I wns In a similar Hx men my

"And you are laughing at my trouble,
which Is unkind."
"Or you might wear your muff on

"Pray bo serloua. Whnt ahall I
do?" ElUabeth hold out her anna.
On ono stri'tehed a long while glovo,
on the other stretched nothing.
I considered tho situation. "You
might have an accident." I nld.
"Accident?" Elizabeth looked puz
zled. I collected handkerchiefs from my
pockets. A fellow never goes to a
danco with less than three. "Shall I
bind you up?" I aeked.
Elizabeth saw the point. "1 think
It would better he a dreadful scald."
sho said, as sho held out her ami.
I wrapped my hiiukcrchlefs around
her wrist and mado them look llko a
bandage. The bandngo was certainly
too bulgy to pull n glovo over beforo
I got through. I enjoyed tho work.
Ono Ilkos to get as near ns possible
to Elizabeth.
Elizabeth was appreciative. "I
shall always como to you In difficulties
after this)" she said.
It was nftor tho third danco that
I began to need my handkerchiefs. In
tho heart of a sympathetic group
Elizabeth was relating the circum
stances of her dreadful scnld. She
had been called upon to tell tho story
so often that sho was really gottlng
borod. I'eoplo aro glad of excuses
that keep them near Elizabeth.
I approached tho group and drow
Elizabeth's glovo from my pockot. "I
beg pardon," said I, Innocently. "Am
I Interrupting?" I hnppcned to bo In
terrupting Sammy Illalr's expressions
of sympathy. "I should llko to ex
change tills glovo for two of my hand
kerchiefs. No 010 scorned to enjoy the situa
tion moro than Elizabeth, Tho only
ono who didn't laugh at all when
Elizabeth's wrist wns unveiled was
Sammy, and ho was feeling rather
silly.
Well, I thought It was a splendid
pleco of humor and that It would have
such a good effect on Elizabeth In
making her moro careful. Ilosldes,
sho enjoyed It so much, ns wns clear
by the way she laughed. Hut on our
way homo she gavo me nn awful wig

her to toll an untruth nnd then had
oxpoecd hor untruthfulness! What do

FARMER IS ULTIMATE LOSER
For All the Mischief Wrought by
Saloona Country People Must
Foot Heaviest Portion.
Tho grcnt argument used for licens
ing the saloon Is that a revenue Is
thus secured to lessen taxntlon. It la
said, "License monoy will build side
walks, support schools, nnd do many
other things which olherwlso would
have to b paid for directly out of the
pockets of tho tnx payers."

do Increase your tnxes enormously.

LIQUOR CLOUDS ONE'S BRAIN
"Temperate" Use of Intoxicants Is Apt
to De Productive of Queer Fan
cles and Fallacies.
It Is n well known fuct that when
alcohol enters the Imdy, ono of tho
first organs to reel Its Influence Is tho
organ of tho mind, tho brain. Tho per
ceptive fnculty Is beclouded, the, rea
son dethroned, nnd tho moderate drin
ker never knows tho oxnet moment
when tlm scoptro passes Into the hnnd
of tU arch-dccelver. In fact, such Is
tho Illusive nnture. of strong drink that
tho drinker often Imagines that a
"propor nnd legitimate" uso of tho
name stimulates nnd shnrpens tho In
tellect. We find nmong tho friends
aud supporters of tho liquor trnlllo
very few total abstainers. Tho mod
erate drinker, on tho other hand, U
found characterizing liquor ns a neces
sary evil nnd apologizing for the sa
loon ns tho oor man's club, which
goes to prove that oven a "temperate"
uso ot intoxicants Is npt to bo pro
ductive! of queur fancies and danger
ous fallacies In tho mind of even ft
good Inwyer, an nblo editor or nn emi

The Evil of the 8aloon.
An American social reform Journal
has this to say of the ovll of the li
censed liquor traffic:
"It Is not chtelly that tho saloon I
a political evil, not chiefly that drunk
enness Is nbhorrcnt, not chiefly that
It Intcrfcros with work nnd business,
not altogether, that It makes so much
misery for so many, but that at last
wo aro seeing that the saloon and In
temperance aro tho enemies ouls
that hnvo Infinite worth and de
stroyers of bodies that have cost such
care. Wo are nt last seolng how ut
terly Illogical, oven lmbecllo,lt Is to
spond thousands of dollars on schools
and churches to produco fine souls and
thousands of dollars ot sanitary cit
ies and streets and houses and safe
guards to grow n healthy young man,
and oven to spend thousands moro to
restore criminals to manhood, and
then to allow on any corner nn insti
tution which destroys both body and
soul."
Columbia Makes Unique Record.
Itecords of nit kinds havo boon
claimed by steamships coming into
port, remarks n Chicago paper, but
none moro strange than the boost of
tho "Columbia," of tho Anchor line,
which recently completed a Jrlp from
Glasgow to Now York, without hav
ing sold n drink during the entire voy
age. Although thero was liquor pro
vided, not a drop was purchased, for
every one ot the passengers was a to
tal abstainer.

be for us. If we aro called to suffer,
let us auffor patiently and sweetly.
Under nil our sharp trials let ui keep
In our hearts the peace of Clod. Under
the snows of suffering, let ui cherish
the fairest, gentlest growths of spirit
ual life. The outward man may In
deed decay, but the Inward man will
bo renewed day by day.
