DOING ONE'S DUTY.
Sometimes it is a hurd thing to do
one's duty. If one stands for con
victions which run counter to other
people's views-and anyone who has
real and sincere convictions ls likely
to run counter to the views of those
persons who are of opposite opinions
-the standing for them brings dif
ferent molds and no two persons see
the same thing in the same manner.
Then, what is a conviction for one
person, and hence a duty to perform,
to another is nothing but a passing
thought. One man makes a mountain
out of a mole hill and another makes
a molehill out of a mountain. So thin
ls life. The thing, therefore, for ono
to do ls 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
atl Is one's own self. You have to
live with yourself ell the time, and
see that other person who thinks
badly of you but once ?tx a while. It
ls of vastly more 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 one so
well said v.o the writer sometime
back: "laey do not ring true, and
you need not hope to stand In with
them." It Is with feelings of respect
that one runs up against a man who
has honest and sincere convictions
and is not afraid to stand for them.
From what we have been able to see
Governor Manning is 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
I course whom he has to condeun In
the performance ot his duty as the
State's chief executive.
Newspapers also should haye con
victions. A newspaper Is but the
mouthpiece for the thoughts and con
victions of Its editors, ana If a news
paper real)? has honest and sincere
conviction., .'here will be those who
will differ from its views. A real
i. newspaper man likes to have persons
take issues with opinions expressed
differing from those of the newspaper,
and an editor usually ls never bet
ter pleased than when he can con
trovert some opposite opinions. A
knife ls sharpened by whetting lt
against a rock. So Ia a mind, bright
ened by rubbing it against some other
mind. But au editor despises a little
bit of a mind which feels an affront
at an opposite expressed, and which
seeks to do the person pr the paper
ah injury because forsooth the news
paper man dees not agree with the
views held by the person. All men
should learn the difference between
convictions and person thought. We
have heard of men who thought they
were almost annihilating a newspaper
when they stopped a subscription for
these differences of opinion, but al
most in every such case there were
always two or more to step In and
take his place.
The editor of The Intelligencer has
enjoyed the discussion over the road
bond issue. We feel that with the
geed feeling displayed by those de
bating the question, only good has re
sulted or can result.
But, what we started out to say was
thai, ons should do one's full duty at
all times so as tn please thnt inward
OT ml tor -conscience.

LOVELY DAY FOB A WAK.
Aunt Mary is the best old soul
you'll meet In many a day. She's
'tended to her knitting in the good
old-fashioned way. She never gabs
nor gossips, she has no time to gab
and she seldom rends the papers,
'cause, she says, they make her sad.
She drove to town this afternoon to
shop around a blt and Wilbur Jones
the grocery man, invited her to sit.
Says he "Aim this war awful?" and
Aunt Mary snys "My Land! Alnt
heard a word about it-I aint even
hard no hand." And Jones says
"Sure, old England and France and
Itusstn, too, arc a fighting with the
Kaiser.-why. It's worse than '62."
Aunt Mary answered sweetly, as she

It is time to seek the feathers, but we

Twenty persons said they'd take us

o OI K DAILY POEM. o
As the evening shadows gather.
Then 'tis cuddle time, I know.
When my baby, dressed for dream
Come aromping to me so;
Comes and begs of me to hold him
On my knees and "rock-a-bye,"
As the purpling sun sinks lower
In the gleaming western sky.
And he cuddles to me nearer,
As thc firelight softly glows,
And across the dusky portals
1 Ghostly, flickering shadows throws;
And two dimpled arms about me
Are clasped tighter for a kiss
An, was richer, rarer necklace
Placed about one's n?ck than this?
And I clasp and hold him closer, ?
Lillte to?sled head jf gold,
As he begs dad fpr a "story"
Which a hundred times I've told,
Degs to have me "tell lt over"
Or 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 eyes 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 lies,
With the glory of the sunset
In bis sleeping, dreaming eyes.
In his eyes, in whose rare lustre
Shines the beauty of the dawn,
Till I knoW that into r.-eammnd
My weo solden head has gone.
Ah, the sweetness of the pleasure.
Making life one golden rhyme.
With a dimpled babe to fondle
When it cometh cuddle time!
