Tho Best of Llfo
Not till Ule"s heat Is cooled.
The headlong rush glowed to a quiet pace,
And every purblind passion thai has ruled
Our noisier years at last
Spurs us In vain, and,'wearj of the race, '
We care no more who loses or who wins—
Ah : not till all the best of life seems past
The best of life begins.
To toil for only lame,
Handclapplng »nd tbe Bckle gusts of praise.
For place or power of gold to gild a name
Above the gravaAiliereto
All paths will bnnif >s. where to lose d»ys—
We, on whose ears youth's passing bell has
tolled—
Id blowing bubbles, even as children do.
Forgetting we grow old.
But the world widens when
Such hope of trivial gain that ruled us lies
Brciken 'mocgour childhood's toys; for then
We win to self control!
And mail ourselTes in manhood, and there
Upon us from the vast and windless height
Those clearer thoughts that are unto the soul
What stars are to the night.
THEYSAY
That they are having picnics down in
Oregon.
That the town of Lakeside w-ints to
incorporate.
That in Panama the rainfall amounts
to ten feet annually.
That a Mcßride club with 538 mem
bers has been formed in Spokane.
That the G. A. R. and W. R. C, of
Pullman, have had their annual bean
bake.
That J. Leigh Campbell is out for the
nomination for County School Superiu
teudent.
That one of the Bonaparte family has
enlisted in the Russian army and will
head a brigade of Cossacks.
That the Lakeside Light has changed
hands again, without changing its poli
tics. C. S. Clark's name appears at the
head of its column.
That Captain Charles Johnson, of
Lakeside, is spoken of for representa
tive from Chelan county. Captain
Johnson lost a leg iv the war of the
rebellion.
That the Seattle Times of last week
said: "The sun came out fora couple
hours yesterday for about the third time
in thirty-live days." In this paradise it
shines almost every day.
That a Seattle man has invented or
produced a crowless rooster. When he
feels good and wants to—no, he don't
want to crow—he just swells up and
pecks all the hens on the head.
That a Methodist negro preacher told
his congregation in Brooklyn. N. V..
last Sunday morning that the Spingtield,
Ohio, negroes ought to make reprisals
on the whites with the torch and gun.
That the farmers ought to get to
gether for self protection. As a class
the farmers are the only ones that are
left, and they begin to feel lonesome by
themselves, and they want to get into a
combine themselves.
That H. H. Williams, of North Yaki
ma, who two weeks ago ran away with
14 year old Lottie Davis has returned.
His wife met him at the depot and for
gave him, saying that hussy of a girl
led him astray.
That the farmers all over eastern
Washington are interested in a move
ment to start a farmers co-operation
company to build flour mills, grain
warehouses and indeed to handle every
thing which farmers either sell or buy.
That Puget Sound lumber is used to
build the two bridges on the Entiat
river which the county commissioners
have ordered, and some people want to
know why the native lumber was not
good enough at a saving of live to ten
dollars per thousand.
That the Wenatchee Advance has
purposely abstained from interfering in
the least in the matter of candidates for
county offices on the republican ticket.
However, it will be well for the boys to
rememlx;r that.in order to make a tick
et which will give general satisfaction,
all parts of the county must lie recog
nized in the distribution of the offices.
That the merchants of Spokane are
not satisfied with the rate that the rail
roads make for Eastern Washington
and Idaho, and now the wholesale mer
chants of Portland, Seattle andTacoma
have formed an association to bring
pressure to bear on the railroads in or
der to make them lower the rates to
those points. They claim they cannot
sell goods in Eastern Washington and
Idaho in competition wish merchant- in
that section. Between the devil an<l
the deep sea the raiLroad men have
their troubles too. just as the ordinary
man.
That Seattle has had thirteen mur
ders within the last year ending the
middle of January, whereas the city of
London, with its five million of people,
has had, in the same time, twenty. In
Seattle, of the thirteen murders com
mit'ed five of the murderers were ar
rested <>n the spot or vtry near where
the crimes were commited, calling for
no .-earch or detective work. The other
nine murderers have not even been ap
prehended. Of the live who were ar
rested al! have been acquitted but one
who i- charged with manslaughter, and
it is said will be acquitted on trial.

AN ACROSTIC
Mow a once Famous Editor was
Imposed upon
The fine vein of irony running
through the editorial comment of the
New York Times on the clever acrostic
that was perpetrated on that thrifty yet
brilliant newspaper man, Charles A.
Dana, in his own paper will be enjoyed
by all who remember the aggressive
character of the editor of the New York
Sun. The incident is just about old
enough to be new.
"We have from time to time had dif
ferences with our neighbor, the New
I York Snn. The views entertained by
! the Sun about the silver dollar, the pro
tective tariff, I civil service reform and
the President are unlike our views, and
we commonly take great pleasure in
events', tendencies, movements and tri
umphs wh'ch cause the Sun acute suf
fering. This is because in these things
the Sun,, as wfl regard it, is sinful by
nature and made more so by practice.
But we think we know how to put aside
mere differences of opinion with an es
teemed neighbor, who, . after all, is hu
man, like the rest of us— and if we diag:
nose correctly the emotion which agi
tates us as we write, we are capable ol
feeling a just resentment toward a
wretch who would covertly enter thai
neighbors esteemed columns and revilt
him with his own type. _
; This atrocious violation of the laws o
decency and hospitality was commit
in the Evening Sun, which gave a prom
inent place .upon its editorial page tc
the following verses:
GOOD ADVICE TO ADVERTISERS.
' Delighted are they who at end of the day,
; ' Are blessed with itae EventnK Sun.Suu.bun
No paper on earth can equal its worth.
And yet it Is only begun, gun, gun. : ■
It's newsy and bright and able to fight, .
So that it will never g»t left, left, left;
And every line will sparkle and shine
From pencils remarkably deft, deft. deft.
Read always, you know, by a million or so.
Advertisements in it will pay, pay, pay:
' Unrivalled by all. it being so i-mali. . .
. Distinctly each ad. will display, play, {.lay.
This is an acrostic. ". The first letters
of the lines, reading from the top down
wards make up the words, ''Dana is a
fraud,' a proposition which is not only
insulting, but untrue, j And the indig
nation mounts higher as we reflect on
the artfulness with which this diaboli
cal viilian did his work. We have no
doubt that he is an outside contributor,
but he knew the weak points of his vic
tim. His manuscript appealed at once
to Mr. Dana's love for poetry and to his
yearning for advertisements. He knew
that after a days weary knawing at the
Mugwump file Mr. Dana turns to poetry
for refreshment as | the heart to the
waterbrooks. He had scan nut} also the
lean advertising columns of the Even
ing Sun and he used his knowledge to
aid his detestable purpose. His caitiff
verses are composed with a skill which
made certain their acceptance and pub
lication. , They were not too good—in
fact, they were bad. very bad. But
their imperfections befitted their com
mercial purpose and averted the eye of
suspicion. It was a' contemptible - and
cowardly way of getting around a poet
ry loving and thrifty old gent email.
And it was an affront to a newspaper
I editor.which the press everywhere
•ought to denounce in the ■ severest
terms, i < > ••'.' . ovl'O. "v!if
Believing this "to be the duty of the
press, we hereby denounce • this knave
and his work, and extend to our neigh
bor, Mr. Dana, bur. lively sympathy,
'and the assurance of our disbelief in the
libeloug statement which be lias unwit
tingly published against himself.
