The editor will spend next week in Wichita attending the state tennis meet. While there we expect to buy a new newspaper press and an electric motor. Frank Motz, lately editor of the Yocemento Star, will have charge of the local and editorial part of the Press and any news you may hand him will be appreciated by the management. William Allen White was paid $1500 for reporting the national republican convention at Chicago. His article ap peared in the Free Press a couple of weeks ago. The price on print paper continues to keep up'in the clouds and if it keeps up all country papers will be compelled to raise their subscription price to $1.60 a year or close up their shops. The government is not setting a very good example. The-past year Uncle Sam spent about 60 million dollars more than he took in. That kind of conduct would break the average editor. Sedg wick Pantagraph. Someone stole into our sanctum sana torium last Monday when we were gone and left this item on our table: "Get ready to lay your firecrackers on the shelf the 4th of July comes on Sunday next year." New York City has just inaugurated a new high pressure water system for fires in the business districts which gives direct force from the pumps, throwing 86 streams at once within a block. The amount of water thrown equals 150 fire engine streams. A little work, a little sweating, a few brief flying years; a little joy, a little fretting, Borne smiles and then some tears; a little resting in the shadow, a struggle to the height, a futile search for El Dorado and then we say Good Night. Some moiling in the strife and clangor, some years of doubt and debt; some words we spoke in foolish anger, and we would fain forget; some cheery words we said unthinking, that made a sad heart light; the banquet with its feast and drinking and then we say Good Night. Some questioning of creeds and theories, and judgment of the dead, while God, who never sleeps or wearies, is watching overhead; some little laughing and some sighing, some sorrow, some delight; a little music for the dying, and then we say Good Night. Walt Mason. Compensation. Everything goes by orderly sequence. We call it law. Nothing ever happens. There is a law for everything. About some of these laws wo know a little. We know something of gravitation, co hesion, chemical affinity, centrifugal and centripetal force, conservation of energy, electricity; but there are laws that wejknow nothing about. We know almost nothing about the law of mind. The law of mind includes all laws. All the laws of nature are but modes of the operation of Supreme mind. All our ills are the result of ignorance. We should always be well and happy if we knew the law of mind. And for the present, we are ignorant of so much, it is of first importance that we should know this: That all goes by law. Why I like God is that he never med dles. He lets us do as we please. He permits us to make mistakes. This gives me confidence. This is why I have . faith. By this I know that He knows we can make no final mistakes. Only what is right is final. If we make a ; mistake God never interfere to prevent the consequent pain. If we are true to ourselves the consequence of being true comes to us with the certainty of unal terable law. God never punishes,' never rewards, never forgives, or if He for gives it makes no difference in the pro cession of events. He lets us do as we please and take the consequences. "Whatsoever a man soweth, that shall of what is to be and a consequence of what has been. This is the main thing to learn. The law of compensation is, that you may have whatever you pay for. You may have as much ,moneyas you are willing and able to pay for. You pay. with economy, industry, persistence timer nerve-force, concentration, some times by meanness, cruelty, sordidness sometimes the price is bo high that when you obtain the money, you find, or others find, that you have exchanged for it truth, sweetness, generosity, faith, hope, love your soul. This,- when you want more than you wish to spend Money is like the manna of the wilder ness; sweet and' wholesome if it is gath ered and used by faith each day: breed ing worms if hoarded by doubt. Money is a great blessing when bought with something of no great value, and for spending in faith knowing that more will come. But it must be paid for somehow, even when it comes by inher itance. Then the price is the death of some one. And the price of keeping it must be paid. Envy not the rich. They pay for all they have. They are play ing fair. It is in the law of compensation that your lot is as good as any other. Is your neighbor rich? There are offsets to that. Are you poor? There are ad vantages in that. Is your neighbor in health? There is a discount somewhere. If you are willing and able to pay for popularity or fame, you may have these. Fame falls into no one's lap. Alexan der, Napoleon, Grant, each paid. Soc rates and Jesus paid, and not too much for what they became. Did you think you could gain the high privilege of the hemlock or the cross without paying Did you think men would worship you unless you gave them something for it? Shakespeare was not an accident. He paia jjoes the popular orator, or statesman, or politician, driving behind the band, carried on men's shoulders. excite your envyi Do you wish you were looked at and talked about like that? Pay the price. He pays. It is in the law of compensation that no life is a failure. That you do not get what you want is an illusion. You may not get what you lightly think you want, but you get what you actually want. If you have come short of material wealth, or whatever else you have fan cied you want, it is because you have not been willing to pay the price. The universe gives you infallibly all you pay for. You may always know what you really want by taking stock of what you have. Do not rail at others for having what you have merely imagined that you want. Do not think that you are not being fairly treated. Nature knows no partialities, is no respecter of per sons. Would you have something for nothing? lou cannot. It is tne law of com pensation that you get all you need, and precisely what you need. We are like roots in the ground. We select from our environment exactly what is necessary for our health and growth. It does not always seem so, but it is so. Fret not about the wayward boy, the thoughtless girl, the drunken husband, the criminal in the open or in the prison, the" poor man, the poor woman, the be reaved, the dying, the dead, the pride ful, the despairing. Love them; but fret not. Love them, and learn that it is not your affair but theirs. God does not interfere nor fret. You need not. Learn his way. Do not meddle. Be quiet and observe. Something good is occurring; something needful. Fret not because of your own weaknesses, mis takes, failures, sins. Love yourself, forgive yourself, believe in yourself, have faith. You think nothing, do nothing, bring nothing to yourself or upon yourself that is not needful. What occurs i3 good for you, not less good because it is ignorantly called evil ine iaw oi compensation is as sure as the law of gravitation. Trust it the same. Hugh O. Pentecost.
