Indications of Thrift.
Whie passing thru the different parts of the city, we have
"been most favorably impressed with the gardens and flowers
that the property owners have.
That not only shows an element of economy among the
people, out also an idea or beauty. I'or any place with a
well kept garden and blooming plants, looks far better than

"Reputation," says one, "is what dcodIc sav vnn nri"
"Character." remarks another, "is what you are in reality,"
To some, it may be difficult to note the difference liotwer-n
xeputation, and character, and unless they give these terms
serious consideration, they will never bo able to see their cliff-
ence. inererore, we sliall be pleased to have you notice these
two very expressive terms. By noting them in their true rela
tion, we believe, much good mav be done.
In youth, especially, young men and women frequently look
uuer reputauon-ouiKiingratlier tlian character development.
Too often is it the case that loaders inspire their constituents
to build reputation. We must be careful, for thru-out Amer
ica ye near tlie cry irom pulpit, press, rostrum and all prog
ressive agencies, to uuiici uiiaracter. And why? Because, in
me ouiiding reputation men and women oft-times, for the sake
of popular sentiment, sacrifice the strongest virtues of their
jimunooa auct womaujiood. 1 liey resort to unmanly practises

There is one Sentiment expressed by one of our greatest
statesmen, who, when, for following the principles of justice
.aw! right, as denied the presidency, exclaimed, "I had rather
be right than president of the United States.1'
May the state, nation, yea, the municipality have many
sons of such manly qualities,
We arc pleased to be informed
