t Western araas 'XDoAti EfttaMlskad March 1. 187. SATURDAY, JAN. 3, 1903. MY PASTIME Everything is "grist" that comes to this mill but the toll is not burden some. - August Link is the name of a real live, flesh and blood, Dutch butcher who, they say, makes excellent sau sage every month in tiie year. "A mocking-bird during holidays and six inches or snow on the ground ! It is a rare sight in this locality but a stray mocker was twittering around our home last Monday morning, De cember 29. From. Maine to Manila, how far is It? From San Juan to Sitka, what direction? How we have have ex panded since Seward was secretary of state I - If Hawaii and the Philippines had not been annexed does any one sup pose we would now be laying a Pacific cable? Evidently imperialism has uot hurt the commercial world. . . . - If the Spanish-American war had nut been fought and won as it was . would the greatest powers of Europe be urging the President of the United States to act as arbitrator of their claims against South American coun tries? Probably not. Might does not make right but power united with justice and good judgment begets con fidence. ,. -. That jolly old fellow. Santa Claus, is known as St. Nicholas or Kris Krin gle in different localities but like our Dutch grandmother's "Krullers" the taste is much the same when they are called doughnuts or fried cakes. There are two sides to this bond company guaranty business. TheotH c -rs or agent, who is honest and ex pects to remain so, very naturally ob jects to paying a premium upon its integrity. If lie intends to make a good haul he might be willing to di vide witli the guaranty company for his -assistance in giving him a chance to exercise his ability as a thief. It.may be the proper thing to cuss the corporations once in a while but without the railroads we would hot be eating spuds from Colorado,. cai.- bage from Wisconsin or celery from Kalamazoo. - . Swore off didn't you? O, that's plain enough. When a man suddenly takes to munching .candy, chewing sticks, a wad of gum or even a wisp of hay it is very evident that lie, is just out of the frying-pan into the tire, The" symptoms are alt tamiliar to one who has been there. Stick to it it you can but we'll beta pound of Pi per's . ileidseck against a plug of Horseshoe thai you don't. We are not quitting- no, not this time. No - swaps in ours. ' "Any man whose head is constructed according to the regular stvle of coop erage (round) and who has used the weed for twenty years will admit'that ' he made a mistake when he began the , habit and some express their convic tions in much stronger terms. Of course there is many a grown up kid who "hardly believes this. The boy nays hj can quit whenever he wants to do so. That's it,. He' never wants to.. Plentyof us are willing or even anxious to be rid of a habit which is always, more or less expensive and nearly always a useless, inconvenient nuisance but there are few, who really want to quit hard enough or long enough tQv succeed. Certainly, . any man may quit for a time but it is the -istay quit that tiurts. .' ... The "art. preservative" has made wonderful ' progress.- si nee old John Gutenberg Invented printing by means of movable 'type. We have just had the pleasure (?) of reading ?n a 90-page, "-column daily paper.. It was the holiday edition of the Stand ard,, daed Anaconda, Montana, Sun day, December 21. It had four full page illustrations in colors, six in black and white, several' half page atnd numerous smaller cuts. One copy uf this paper contained enough matter t m ike a book a good-sized volume worth, perhaps, a dollar .and yet the price is only fire cents or one cent less than the postage' paid on it. --, ". '-' "- , -ust think of the material an labor Tcie -Laxative Droxno Quinine tis. SeviaiaakmtaHhaUaMatki. TL5s sirmstnre. required to ge( out the first copy of such a paper for five cents and then you will wonder if the country printer is not in earnest when he jokes about his poverty. Thirteen -square . yards of white paper almost or quite enough tocarpet an ordinary bedroom. Six hundred and thirty columns twen ty inches long or one fifth of a mile if laid end to end and that allows a mar gin of one inch all around each page. One hundred thousand lines like the one you-are reading .or, more than three miles of solid reading matter and the written "copy" was three times as long j, Three, million pieces of type etc. to pick up if set" in the old way.' To do this the compositor's hand moves five thousand miles be tween "stick" -.and "case" and then every piece : is handled again in the "distributing" process. Figures do not lie but even the truth becomes dry, dull and .uninteresting some times. , . - However, such things are not done in the old way any more. .We have had four hundred and fifty years of progress and invention since old Jo hannes first used wooden type. . The greatest progress has been made in the last enntury and much of it is the result of American genius in chemis try and the mechanical' arts. Im proved . paper-making, rapid picture processes, type-setting machines. lighting power presses and folders are some of the thi ngs that have made the Sunday paper possible. The world moves But these are not the only evidences of progress. Think of transporting a paper 1000 miles', for six cents through a country -where only a few years ago a similar service would have been worth as many dollars, being at tended always by hardship and dan ger from storm or starvation and sometimes even the loss of life at the hands of savages. Some of our pebple can remember when twenty-five cents carried a letter, carefully folded and sealed with wax, only a limited num ber of miles. That letter was proba blv penned with a goosequill. Now it may be -typewritten, enclosed in gummed envelope bearing aii emboss- ea two-cent stamp and delivered by Uucle Sam almost anywhere even to uttermost ends of the earth. ' - Perhaps you are asking where and what is nacOnda that it should have such a paper ? A city of several thou sand inhabitants in the heart of the Rocky-"" Mbuttains which gives" die state its name ; . a -city' not even dreamed of less- than forty years ago a city of culture, coppermines, sine! ters and millionaires. " And how did tnis city get its serpentine name Well, when it cornea to naming .a mine there is something in a name Two brothers," looking . for silver, found copper. One Called his mine St. Lawrence, their native county in old York stater. - The other had been a soldier, under MeClellah and remem bered that Greeley had said' that gen eral's army was slowly - inclosing tle army yf Lee like the folds ofagian anaconda. ; We know of Course tha Greeley was mistaken and the whole north disappointed. .We. know tha Lee-broke the coils of tlie serpent but the word suited the veteranas he call ed the. .mine Anaconda. 'Years, later the, mine prospered and the name clung to the locality .perhaps better thaw his' own "might have' done for that was Hickey. "',-.- ' r''- s -r "Theodobs. Sol Long, reading clerk Of the Pop ulist house in 1397, has . created a sti .in Elkr county, by filing a truthful election expense statement with the county clerk. Long" ran for the legis lature on the Democrat ticketjn Elk county, this fall. He was defeated His campaign cost him $134.05. Under the law a candidate is required to file a statement showing the amount of money he spent during the campaign Most candidates' evade, the. spirit of the law by bunching the "expenses up as "incidentals." , This shields the heelers,. the grafters and the boodlers Long didn't shield anybody. He told exactly where everv cent went to. .He gave a complete list of the druggists and jointists - of whom be bought "liquor, told what sort of liquor it was 'and the price, also gave the names of the men to wltoru be paid out cash for their influences- It seems1 that some of the -drug stores in the list have been posWig .as ."temperance" stores and that some of the men whom Long let pull his leg pose as "leading citi sens.
