SHOULD SERVE AS A WARNING.
Although it has been repeatedly dem
onstrated that a man who attempts to live
'•a fried oyster life on a fried liver in
come" will soon or later tumble into the pit
of dishonor, yet men go right on living
that kind of lives. The truth of this some
what homely assertion has twice been
brought to the attention of the people of
this section within the past month.
In Salt Lake C. C. Slade, who had for
than '20 years been a trusted employe
of the post office, was caught in the act of
purloining money from letters. These
thefts had been continuing for some time,
but not until a few days before he was de
tected in the act of committing the crime,
did the least suspicion point to Mr. Slade.
In his confession after he was arrested he
told the old, old story—he had been living
beyond his income for several years,
finally reached the parting of the roads—he
hadto either give up the society in which he
and his wife had been traveling or resort
to illegal means of securing money with
which to keep up appearances. Rather than
to drop down a notch in the social scale^ he
chose to go the route which was to inevit
ably lead him to ruin. Like thousands who
had gone that route before him, he doubt
less said to himself he would stop before he
reached the yawning abyss of dishonor.
But after taking his first step he found it
such an attractive pathway to tread that all
ihoi g'it of turning back was forgotton.
f Lhus he journeyed on, each day becoming
more bold in his acts of crime, until final
ly lie dropped into the pit. And now, in
stead of being honored and respected bv
his fellow men. he will spend the declining
years of life behind prison bars.
Tue other case referred to is that of
Edward Holzheimer of Pocatello, who had
been honored by the citizens of Bannock
county by being elected a member of the
lower house of the legislature. His sudden
downfall can be attributed to the same
cause as that of Mr. Slade—inherent greed
for gold, a desire to live beyond his means.
So intent was this desire that he resorted
to such glaring criminal acts as forgery and
embezzlement, but his work was so coarse
that he fell into the pit much sooner than
others in whose pathway he was following.
And now instead of being an honored rep
resentative in the lower house of the legis
lature, he is a fugitive from justice, having
quietly left for parts unknown when he
learned that his criminal acts had become
more

known, and before a warrant could be is- *
sued for his arrest.
Mr. Holzheimer is & young man of ex- *
eeptional ability and had, during the few *
years he had resided in Pocatello, won the J
confidence and esteem of his fellow citizens. »
He had become associated with one of the j *
old and reliable business institutions of that «
city and w ? as well along on the road that ^
leads to honor and success, but he came to *
the parting of the ways arid in a thought- *
less moment chose tne way that lead to his *
quick downfall and everlasting ruin,
has also brought humiliation and disgrace
upon the woman who only a year ago be
came his wife,
lives have been ruined for Mr. Holzheimer,
if apprehended, must spend several years
in prison, while from the mind of the
young wife there can never be effaced the
dishonorable deeds of her husband.
These two cases should serve as an
everlasting warning to others that there is
no possible escape from dishonor, to all
who attempt to live beyond their means j
That road leads to ruin just as certain as
does the other glitteriug pathways of vice. !

Thus two promising young
Whether or not there is any concerted
effort upon the part of some of the farmers
of Bear Lake county to organize a farmers'
union or co-opciative store, we are unable |
to say. But should there be such plan
foot, we wish to remind those interested in ;
it of the dismal failures that attenned the,
Bloomington and;
on ;
co-op stores of Paris,
Montpelier. It is safe to say that not one!
who was interested in either of those insti-i
tutions could be induced to become con- ;
neeted with another co-op store or farmers'
union of any kind.
As it is not long now until the selection !
of candidates for mayor and gouncilmen j
will have to be made, it is time the question !
being decided as to whether or not the

city campaign is to be conducted on parti son
The Examiner is in

favor of the former plan and will have more
to say on the question in the near future.
