all classes of people, from those
highest up in life to those the
lowest down. It is sometimes nec
essary to, toot ones own horn but
we sould be enrcful not to blow
it too loud. Tho young should
be trained against all forms of
egotism as they are now trained
igainst many ot the other forms

In modern days education
seems to be the chief aim of most
men. The truth of it is, educa
tion and no talent, in some in
stances, is a hindrance. But few
highly educated people will ever
do hard manual labor. They have
a knowledge of their educationa
ability and will seek employment
in which they can bring this a-
bility into use and upon which
they may command a higher sal
ary. If they have not the natur
al perseverance and talent to
hold up the other end aside from
the educational qualifications,
they must fall down and in the
fall they become a. burden and a
bore tp society. Ia the educa

child should be closely watched
and studied and a good common
school education given such child

it because we have seen some
children atteud the common
schools regularly until they are
eighteen years old and still know
nothing, so to speak, in books.
And yet these children may have
better business judgment than

We do not take so kindly to
the "development of tho coun

ally as the term is applied in this
section of the country. Devel
opment in the mountains means
that a few Eastern capitalists
will come here and gobble up all
of the choice coal and timber
lands, build a railroad to it, op
erate the mines and big lumber
plants. Tho companies hold all
of their lands monopolize ti.o
6tores, build their own banks and
have everything their own way.
Tho people are permitted to work
in their mines and mills and give
them wages enough to half live
while they are at work. The

Saturday is Washington's birth

He was the Rockefeller of his

in branding him the "father of
