Gregory Why Is a Pessimist? er er That's easy. A Pessimist is just because he can't help it. He was born some Friday the 13th—in the dark o' the moon, with a black cat sitting on the doorstep. He was fed castor oil when he cried for sugar, made to wear tight shoes when he wanted to go fishing barefoot, and his whole boyhood made a hard case of "when a feller needs a friend." He gives girls a good time and other fellows marry them. He tries to join fraternal lodges and the loving brothers tutn him down. He works hard for promotion and more pay and gets fired. He misses trains by half a minute and not an other one for six hours. He gets knocked down by taxis and locked up by policemen—on suspicion. If there's anything doing in the epidemic line he's a charter mem ber. If he had been anything but a Pessimist he would have died of the first attack, but he is spared time and time again so that he may sample all the newest things in (itis) and (osis) as they are put on the market. , He is the joy of the encyclopedia peddler, and the thrice blessed of the stock certificate enthusiast; not because he is an easy m&rk, but becuse he was fated to be in the right mood at the wrong time. With all these handicaps if he was n't a Pessimist he would be a Hypo crite—which is worse yet. The Pessimist is deserving of all 8ympahthy and gets it—not.—"Sel ected. a Ver-*tile Nut Tree.

Payable In Advance Entered at Kendrick, Idaho, 1892, as 2nd Class Matter, under Act of Congress of March 3,1879. Advertising Rates furnished upon request. as * * BUY to to WS.S Our enterprising street commis sioner started the road drag on the streets of the town the first of the week. There was some difference of opinion among a very few bf the wise men of the town as to whether the streets were too dry or too wet to drag. The matter hasn't been definitely settled yet. However, in our humble opinion the streets and roads are never too wet nor *too dry to drag, and whoever is driving the team that drags the roads is doing the Lord's work. So long as the town and surrounding country is cursed with dirt roads some of the blasphemy can be eliminated by smoothing over the rough places with a good old drag. If the streets of the town are dragged four or five times this spring they will be in passable condition during a great er part of the dry season. The merchant who is a town build er is the advertiser. The merchant who advertises not only brings trade to his store but he brings trade to the town. An organization of an assocation opposed to National Prohibition is being formed in New York and is expected to gain a foothold in every state in the Union. Nearly a million people have applied for membership. The main point at issue, according to leaders of the organization, is that National Pro hibition by constitutional amend ment interferes with the principle of "personal rights and liberties." Idaho legislated in favor of state wide prohibition a number of years ago and it is safe to say that after this trial period it would - be an utter impossibility to vote the state wet again. A large majority of men who would vote to have the country remain wet haven't very sound princples to start with, so there would be nothing wrong in the country taking a hand to abolish an evil that only tends to further weaken their characters. Any piece of legislation that can bring with it such an untold amount of good as the National Prohibition Amend ment won't cause us any sufferings from the standpoint of interfering with our "personal rights and lib erties," A SIMPLE MAN'S SIMPLE CREED Elisher—he's our hired man— Allows there ain't no better plan Of circumventin' woes an' cares, Than smilin' when y' come down stairs; ' An' lives up to it, square an' blunt, Like general run of preachers won't!

Then bimeby, as like as not, Some man will pass that's mebbe got A mortgage that his crops can't fetch, But like enough the man will ketch Elisher's smile an' drop his frown Ah' tote the smile away to town. An' peddle it where, bein' wus^. The people need it more than us! Tne feller at the griss-mill gits The spirit of the smile—it flits Across an' through the blacksmith's door, An' breezes through the general store, Then out again, an' wreaths, dog gone, Whatever face it fastens on!— Because Elisher's smile is jis' As ketchin' as the pink-eye is! An' then the feller brings it back At night along the back-urds track, An' scatters it on either side The Country Road, both far an' wide, Until, by time when we get in From work, the smile is back agin'! Back home agin'!— an' seems t' bless Elisher for his cheerfulness. "Because you smiled," it seems to say, "The world has had a holiday." —Selected.
