THE SPOKANE PRESS has a two-fold object In existence—to
print all the news all the time
to materially assist in the development of Spokane and the Inland
Empire. Its news columns will be uncolored, its politics the ad
vancement of Spokane, and Its price within the reach of all.
There ere no social connections more hollow or business con
nections more profitless than those formed over the liquor bottle.
The sentiments ant! feelings there engendered are not genuine.
They are not grounded in your true nature. They do not t .ueh your
real heart strings.
The coarse jest that you laugh at so boisterously and regard as
each rare wit, when drinking, seems shallow commonplace when you
The good fellowship that warms your mind when maudlin appears
garish and empty enough the next morning. ■
This is the rule. There are exceptions. If these have come to be
the best associations you know, it is because you have narrowed
down your environments anil opportunities and contracted your
mind and heart and soul until there is room left in your life only
lor the worst that the world affords.
William Makepeace Thackeray was no teetotaler. Dut he wrote
this of drink-Inflamed intimacies:
"I think the intimacy which is begotten over the wine bottle is
. * spirit of this nature (has no heart). I never knew a good feeling
come of it or an honest friendship made by it; it only entices men
and ruins them; it is only a phantom of friendship and feeling called
up by the delirious blood and the wicked spells of the wine."
It is as true today as it was when written, more than 50 years
ago. Drinking is the same sort of thing today that it was in 1842,
when Thackeray thus moralized upon the life history of one of his
own schoolmates, who followed gambling and drinking to his suicidal
death, for he put a pistol to his head and blew out his brains when
he was penniless and starving, deserted by his wine bottle intimates.
Much the same story is told every day in every newspaper in the
Such friendship is still the same phantom that flees when need
•omes, still the same gnilty counterfeit of the true thing.

quaint and daintily decorated din
ing hall of the Country club, she
celebrated her twentieth birthday
in a sumptuous supper, following
which an informal dance in honor
of her sister, Mrs. Frank McDon
ough of Eau Claire, was held.
Excellent music aud a perfect
floor, with girls and gallants, nu
merous and congenial, made the
dancing half of the evening a de
light, while pleasing features too
numerous to mention made the
supper a memorable affair.
Tho3e attending the supper
were: Mr. and Mrs. F. T. Post,
Dr. and Mrs. William Dalton, Mr.

A NEW HOME.
The young housewife, filled with
pride and a desire to make the new
home bright, cheerful and practi
cal, sometimes has helpful sugges
tions made by kind friends who
have passed through these trying
experiences. From kitchen to par
lor one sees her thoughtful and
painstaking care and every ap
pointment speaks of comfort and
time-saving conveniences. Many
utensils are necessary besides tin
ware, furniture, carpets, etc. She
finds as a time-saver that the New
Home sewing machine has no
equal. Its qualities are innumer
able and she finds in a short time
that it can not be dispensed with
and she is prepared to do without
other articles at first, if necessary,
and have a machine that never
falls. Just see the New Home peo
ple, corner of First aye. and Mill
St., about it. Phone, Red 2456.
