DOING ONE'S DUTY.
Sometimes it ls a hard thing to do
one's duty. If one stands for con
victions which run coudter to other
people's views-and-anyone who has
rest and sincere convictions is likely
to run counter to the views of those
persons who arc of opposite opinions
-thc standing for thrrn bring*
feront molds and no two person-; see
the some thing in the same manner.
Then, what ia a conviction for one
person, and hence a duty to perform,
to another ls nothing but a passing
thought. One man makes a mountain
out ot a mole hill and .vtother makes
a molehill out of a mountain. So this
is Ute. The thing, therefore, for one
to do is to live his or her own life,
and satisfy that inward monitor
which makes for peace of mind and
personal happiness. True, you will
not please some people, and there
will be some against you, but the
most important person to please after
all is one's own self. You have to
live with yourself all the time, and
see that other person who thinks
badly of you but once Jn a while. It
ls of vastly moro Importance, there
fore, to please that person whom you
see most, and whom you know best
One* who stands for things that are
right, and pure and holy, need not
expect to be popular with those who
have evil thoughts or who do not
stand for those things. As ono so
well said to the writer sometime
back: '^hey do not ring true, and
you need not hope to stand in with
them." It ls with feelings of respect
that one runs up against a man who
has honest and sincere convictions
and is not afraid to stans for them.
From what we have been able to see
Governor Manning ls such a man. and
he is getting the plaudits of all peo
*ple. whether or not he belongs to
their political faction, except those of
course whom he has to condoi m in
tho performance of his duty as thc
State's chief executive. - j?, f
- Newspapers also should haye con
victions. A newspaper is btu the
mouthpiece for the thoughts and con
victions of Ita editors, and if a news
paper really' has honest and sincere
convictions, there will be those who
Will differ from its views. A real
newspaper man likes to have persons
take' issues with opinions expressed
differing from those of the newspaper,
and an editor usually is never bet
ter pleased than when he can con
trovert some oppos?e opinions. A
knife ls sharpened by whetting it
against a rock. Ho is a mind bright
ened by rubbing lt against some other
mind. But an editor despises a little
b(t of a mind which feels sn affront
at an opposite expressed, and which
seeks to do the person pr the psper
an injury because forsooth the news
paper man does nut agree with the
views held b" tho person. All rn?u
Should learn the difference between
convictions and person thought We
have heard of .'t?e?v who thought Abey
were almost annihilating a newspaper
when they stoppod a subscription for
these differences of opinion, but ni
most in every such case there were
always two or more f> step hi end

LOVELY DAY FOR A Vi Alt.
Aunt Mury ia the best old soul
you'll meet in many a day. She's
tended1 to--her knitting in the good
dd-fashioned way. She never gabs
nor goBBips. she has no time to ?uh
ind she seldom reads the papers,
cause, she says, they make her sad.
3he dTove to town this afternoon to
mop around, a bit and "Wilbur Jones
;he grocery-man, invited her to sit.
3ayB he "Alnt this war awful?" and
\uril Mary says "My Land! Alnt
leard a word about lt-I ?tnt even i
lard no band." . And Jones saya
'Sure, old England and France and
RUSBIS, too, are u fighting witli the
Ivaiser.-why, it's worse than *62."
\unt Mary answered sweetly, us she
started on her way. "Well they've got
nice wqather for it, 'cause it's Jest
% lovely' day?"-Ed. McIntyre.

when the weater opens up and your

Full of truth and human nature:
In the gloaming, oh, toy darling, when
the ears whizzing past.
Sit we two upon our front porch till
we see the very last.
It ls time to Beek the feathers, but we
linger still outside;
Twenty persons said they'd take us
out a-riding, but they lied.
In the glooming, oh, my dnrllng. we

As the motor cars fly past us on the

THE M TV OF A NEWSPAPER
"A newspaper should be a watcher
on the housetop, and seo afar and
ahead thc'issues coming up and try
to lead those not occupying th0 van
tage ground of tho newspaper. A
newspaper should not bo a weather
vane only, showing which way the
wind blows, but it should be a wind
that blows. A true newspaper stands
for something, and ls a real fnctor
in the development of tts commun
ity. Believing this The Intelligencer
tia3 stood for many matters progres
sive, and we feel that our efforts
have not been in vain. It ls, per

As the evening shadows gather,
Then 'tis cuddle time. J know,
When my baby, dressed for dream
Come aromping to me so;
Comes and begs of me to hold him
On my knees und "rdek-a-bye,"
As the purpling sun sinks lower
In the gleaming western sky.
And he cuddles to me nearer.
As the firelight softly glows;
And across the dusky portals
Ghostly, flickering shadows throws;
And two dimpled arms about me
Are clasped tighter for a kiss- .
Ab. waa richer, rarer necklace
Placed about one's neck than this';
And I clasp and hold him closer.
Lillie tousled head of gold.
As he begs dad for a "story"
Which a hundred times I've told,
I Begs to have me "tell lt over"
Of the quaint Red Riding Hood,
Of the bears-that happy family
Living in the deep, dark wood.
Soon the drooping, drooping lashes
Cover up two eyeB of brown,
And the tousled head so golden
On my breast sinks lower down;
Lower yet, till deep in slumber,
Cuddled close to me he Hes,
With the glory ot the sunset
In his sleeping, dreaming eyes.
In his eyes, in whose rare lustre
Shines the beauty of the dawn.
Till I know that into Dreamland
My wee golden head has gone.
Ah. the sweetness of the pleasure,
Making Ufo one golden rhyme,
With a dimpled babe to fondle
When lt cometh cuddle time!
