Chang ing the figure, character is a house keeper whose guests gradually mold the host. Conscience Is the sentinel at the door. Every day some good influence knocks at the door some isanly virtue or womanly grace seeks admission. If the doorkeeper admits them and the host and hostess cher ishes their company the housekeeper is enriched and adorned. But if Conscience, the sentinel, Is asleep when these visitors call, and they are compelled to go away, and if other callers of a baser sort are ad mittedfor they, too, knock at every door then character will suffer, ere a little, there a little that Is the way character is made. Sir Philip Sidney was right when he said: "There Is no man suddenly either excellently good or extremely evil." Ed Hoch In Marlon Record. Normal Lectures.

The convention of the W. C. T. U. of Phillips county met in the M, E. church In Agra, the 11, 12 of May. Six unions of the county were well repre sented by delegates and visitors. Nine county superintendents were present The Sumner Y furnished us with de lightful music and a medal contest on Wednesday evening. Miss Monk took prize. Miss Robinson of Naponee, greatly delighted the aujlence by 're citing "Bobolink" and-was enthusias tically encored. Purity Literature, Non-Alcoholic Medication, Medal Contest, L. T. L., Suffrage, Scientillo Temperance In struction and Law Enforcement, were the principal subjects handled from which was received much instruction and encouragement. Our district President, Mrs. Eva Murphy of Goodland, assisted us In the day time and on Thursday evening delivered an address on "What an Optimist can do to help the Tem perance Work." Major E. T. Scott, lecturer for the State Temperance Union, and Mrs. Scott, National W. O. T. U lecturer, were with usduring convention. Their words arouse thought tho thought leads to conviction. He is styled "The John Knox of the Temperance Platform." "The second J. B. Gougn" Five hundred pages of literature were distributed at this convention. Among the many thoughts presented were the following: God recognizes no sex In sin; A White life for two should be demanded. The W. C T. U. stands next to the church in receiving and helping not only those girls who have fallen but also those who careless about their de portment. Parents should know In timately where their children are and who are their associates. They should also pass upon the literature read by their children. The Police Gazette is one of the per iodicals which by law, is prohibited from being carried through the malls. In order to live under a pure govern ment, pure men must be elected who will enact pure laws. Education Is needed against the advertisements of patent medicines and Immodest pic tures on barns and fences. North Carolina has fifty-four counties with out any liquor llcenso and In many places Peruoa and Ilostetter's Bitters cannot be sold. Non-Alcohollc Medication Is coming to the front. Views along this line are undergoing radical change. Edu cate one's self concerning "Alcohol a dangerous and unnecessary Medicine" One fourth of our physicians are treating diseases without Urn use of alcohol. Pabst declares that In spite of all prohibitory laws passed, ho will through the drug stores introduce his lager beer, as new cream malt. Are formed drunkard In Phillips county, said: "Nothing a man can take will do the work as thoroughly as m lit." Are our children going out Into the world so fortified by education and home training along temperance lines, that they will be able to say "No" when temptation comes ? The words "Welcome W. C. T. U." were placed In white above the pulpit and the church was otherwise artis tically decorated in green and white bunting with wreaths, (lowers and potted plants. A committee met us at tho train, and we desire to say that tho royal welcome we received will be a pi jasant memory for many years. KKSOIXTIONS. We the representatives of the W. C. T. U, of Phillips county Kansas In convention assembled at Agra re turne thanks to our Heavenly Fath er f ir his loving care, saving grace and constant guidance In the past, In vl;wof which we desire to reconse crate ourselves to his sprvlce, thut being more determined fat no foe shall daunt us and no difficulties deter until our principles have triumphed, a id lur Christ enthroned In the heart of the people. Some nf the principles we would emphasize, among them total abstinence for the Individual, prol.i )it Ion for the state and nation bylaw non-alcoholic ra Hunt Ion for tb homp, using our Influence with physicians that there n many ri-mc-dies bettor ibaa alcohol io be used as stlmul tn's. We detbre the Increasing use of cigarettes and pledge ourselves In iv new activity against this practice and its klufTdd habit, the use of tobacco in any form. Educ it 1 n along temperance lino; the Holy Bible as our standard of faith; tbe reavnifion of tin; fjibbath asadayof rest; and christian cltlz' n ship. We d-rply TPuTt-l I be absence of Mrs. Hut;liirs4n, our slate presideut, cauv ed by tho remoal by death, of, a loved one and extend to her our heartfelt sympathy in this her time of great sorrow. We have had a special uplift in the presence of Mrs. Murphy, president of sixth district; have been much en thused by the encouraging words f Mr. and Mrs. Scott during this session We tender our thanks to the trus tees of this cbutch for the use of same to the business men of Agra who so kindly advertised our coming by deco rations and otherwise; to the people of Agra for the unbounded hospital ity of their homes; to those who as sisted in the music; to the ministers who, have helped with their counsel and sympathy; and to all who have In any way contributed towards making our meeting a success. Mrs. Jane Tracy, ) Mrs. Lizzie Granger, Committee. Mis. Fannie Whitney, ) Roosevelt as an lisue. Thus If an entirely correct demo cratic candidate like Judge Parker Is to be nominated on a purely negative platform like that provided for him at Albany last month, there will be no serious Issue before the conutry except that of giving or withholding a vote of conlidence In the Roosevelt admin istration. Foiir years ago, one argu ment for re-electing Mr. McKlnley was the pendency of much unfinished business resulting from the period ol the war with Spain. President Roose velt can now go before tbe country upon the record of a faithful comple tion of those Items of business. Cuba is firmly established; civil government In the Philippines Is a pronounced success; Porto Rico enjoys free trade with tbe United States, like Hlawall; Cuba and the Philippines have re ceived tariff concessions; the war taxes have been abolished; the army has been reduced and recognized. Our relations with foreign countries are more uniformly agreeable than at any former period. The Alaska boundary question has been satisfactorily set tled; the canal question Is removed from the sphere of diplomacy; the Monroe Doctrine has been well sus tained in the settlement of the Vene zuela dispute, and American rights and interests have been guarded in the Orient without endangering peace ful relations. The perfect neutrality that our government observed through tbe South African war, In which the American sympathy was largely with the Boors, is now maintained In the Russo-Japanese war, although popular sympathy Is evidently with the Japa nese. In other respects, President Roosevelt's administration has not been lacking In striking Incidents and achievements. The settlement of the anthracite-coal strike, the creation of the Department of Commerce rnd La bor, the Northern Securities prosecu tion, the Irrigation policy, such are some of the matters that have made the administration noteworthy. But perhaps the most Important of all for The Shimeall Clothing Co. Men are tat r-fc5?uwv4,. ft 11 .;"1: V'ff-'.iiv4ol', 275!
