A
Staying
Trade
In the drug business more than
in any other, success depends on
public confidence. The career
of a store depends not so much
on the occasional customer as on
those whose continuous trade it
holds. It must hold them by
meriting and securing confi
deuce.
Our
Trade
Has grown steadily since we
came to Leavenworth and it has
grown because we deserve that
it should. Customers have come
">nce, come again, sent their
friends, and all have stayed.
They have stayed because they
are careful in their drug buying;
they wanted the best goods at
just prices. That's what they
always get at the
City Drug Store

Decoration Day
Some years ago, on decoration day,
the women of Columbus, Mississippi,
animated by a nobie sentiment, scatter
ed flowers alike on the graves of the
Union and Confederate soldi rs. The
sentiment ■ hich the-e w>raen so
beautifully expressed it) their acts sug
gested to F. M. Finch the poem entitled
"The Blue and the Gray," which we
give below.
THE BLUE AND THE GRAY
By the flow of tbe inland river,
Whence thi fleets of iron hare fled.
Where the blades of grave grass qu .ver.
Asleep on the ranks of the dead :—
Under tbe sod anil the dew,
Waiting the judgment day:
Under the one, the Blue,
Under the oth r, tte Gray.
These in the robings of glory,
Those in the gloom of defeat,
All with the battle-blood gory,
In thedu.-kof eternity meet: —
Under the sod and the dew,
Waiting the judgment day;
Under the laurel, the Blue,
Under the willow, the Gray.
From the silence of sorrowful hours.
The desolate mourners go,
Lovingly laden with flowers,
Alike Tor the friend or fo;: —
Under the sod and ihe dew.
Wailing the judgment day;
Under the roses, the Blue.
Under the lilies, the Gray.
So. with an equal splendor,
The morning sun rays all.
With a touch Impartially tender.
On the blossoms blooming (or all:—
Under the sod ana the dew.
Waiting the Judgment day;
Droldered with gold, the Blue.
Mellowed with gold, the Gray.
So, when the Summer calleth,
On forest and Held of grain
With an equal murmur falleth
The cooling drip of the rain:—
Under the sod and the dew.
Waiting the judgment day;
Wet with the rain, the Blue.
Wet with the rain, the Gray.
Sadly, but not with upbraiding.
The generous deed was done;
In the storm of the years that are fading-,
No braver battle was won:—
Under the sod and the dew,
Wailing the Judgment day;
Under I he blossoms, the Bine,
Under the garlands, the Gray.
No more shall the war-cry sever,
Or the winding rivers be red;
They banish oar anger forever
When they laurel the graves of our dead:
Und. r the sod and the dew.
Walling the judgment day;
Love and tears (or the Ulue.
Ttars and love for the Gray.
To Get Into Swell Society
John Farson lays dowi, some rules for
breaking into modern high society
which in the light of current events
seem to be quite correct:
"App y for a divorce from your wife.
"Move into a neighborhood in close
proximity to swelldom. Move into
swelldom as soon as you can get money
enough to pay the rent
"Join a f sh onable church
"Play cards at least half the time you
have out of office hours.
'Cultivate the 'golf habit;' read the
trashiest novels.
'•Join a good club and work up an ac
quaintance with society men.
"Attend club functions; pay more at
tention to what is on your back than in
your head.
'•The possession of a lively family
skeleton should help some."
Concludes Mr. Farson:
"A divorce is often of benefit to the
aspirant. If he marries a clever society
woman, she ought to be able to place
her husband in the center of the circle.
What is society? You might as well
ask me how old is Ann. I don't know.
Melville Stone who spoke at the gen
eral federation of women's clubs at St.
Louis last week said, not a line of scan
dall would be printed in American
newspapers were it not for women. No
large metropolitan newspaper can live
without the support of women. News
papers today are edited for women and
not for men. If the women of the Gen
eral Federation of Women's Clubs will
set their faces against scandal the
objectionable in journalism will disap
pear.
A Sure I Inn-
It is saitl that nothing is sure except
death and taxes, but that is not alto
gether true. Dr. King's New DUcit
ery for t'oiiHUmption is a sure cure for
al throat and lung troubles- Thous
ands can testify to that. Mrs. C. B.
Van Metre ofShepherd town, W.Ya.,says
"I had a severe MM of Bronchitis and
for a. year tri.-d eveything I heard r>f,
hut Rot no relief. One bottle of Dr.
Kine's New Di-i-overy then cured me

(Written for the Echoi
(Continued from last week)
Direct effort on the part of every man
to produce or evolve the thing or struc
ture which satisfies his want*, meets
several serious otMtaclm.
First: —The productions of different
climates and different soils differ to >--
si'ntially that exchange is rendered i?
not nee. s-ary, at least convenient.
Second:—The magnitude of some en
terprises requires combination, while
the perfection of mauv articles can !«■
realized with caie only by sume form of
co-operation.
Third:—Some natural wants of man
require ministration at the hands of
persons specially qualified: while every
thing which man uses or desires can be
better made by training for that pur
pose.
These considerations of themselves,
while not necessarily destroying crea
tive exercise by each man, tuggc-l 4o
sirable and proper limitations thereup
on.
Fourth:—Every foot of land upon
which to stand, and every particle of
of raw ma'eriiil within the sight of hu
man life, has been appropriated. Eve J
man is therefore now compelled to seek
the acquisition of some power by means
of which to dispossess his fellows of the
lands and raw materials which they
hold by law and usage, and obtain the
labor of the specialist.
Thus come into being our modes of
busineu, iind the intense specialization
of modern labor, whose direct object i»
the attainment of this power. Brute
violence is prohibited by law, and gov
ernmental aggrandizement is prohibit
ed by the constitution and an independ
ent judiciary.
By the facts of life, money, diffused
throughout the world, is convertible at
the will of its solvent owner inland*,
materials, labor and fruits of labor. By
reason of its circulation in all the ave
nues of life, its purchasing power holds
in one hand the accumulated fruits of
the labor of the past and with the other
reaches vastly forward to seize without
resistance the product of all future la
bor.
Could it be possessed with all the
power it has when circulating, the
world would bow complaisant at the
feet of its possessor, and ask to do his
bidding. But to be potent it mnst cir
culate. The power to recall it at stated
times, or at his will, constitutes the
wealth of one and imposes on countless
others the necessity to sell. To acquire
this power, man. whether he choose or
not, must toil, and plan, and scheme,
and plot, with eye alert, with large dis
course of cunning, or else exist a friend
jess vagabond, a houseless tramp.
Joking.

Last Thursday a bear weighing over
live hundred pounds was killed within
one and a half miles of Seattle. Ho had
been making nightly raids on the lar
der of a lot of men wh<> were cuiting
logs on the shores of Lake Washington.
The first son and heir apparent to
this print shop made his appearance
Tuesday morning. We wore not at all
surprised as we had expected it for
sometime. In fact we misled two con
ventions and a baseball game on that
account. We hope he will grow up to
be a good democrat and never have
money enough to have to turn repub
lican. At present he howis like a pop
ulUt but we expect his mother to take
that out of him in a short time.—Hat

An order was secured from Judge
Kennan by Attorney. R- W. Nuzum at
Spokane last week authorizing Mrs. J
E. Croak, wife of the Great Northern
engineer who was killed in a wreck
near Leavenworth on April 13, to set
tle wiih the company for 18000. Mrs.
Croak is administratix of her husband's
estate and the order of the court was
necessary before the could make the
settlement. While there is no record
of it in court, it i» understood that the
widow of James Wilson, the fireman
who was killed in the same wreck, has
made a similar settlement with the
company.

A >'<•« Tliouglil Lracnr at Spokane
The New Thought league which was
formed in Spokane a short time ago,
is reported to be crowing rapidly.
The league was established through
the new thought Research Publishing
company of Xew York. Ella Wheeler
Wilcox, Wiiliam \V. Walker, Sydney
Fowler, Jean Cowgill and others are
the promoter*! The Xew Thought
Lyceum Lecture bureau, with Paul
Tyler of Xew York as manager, has
arranged to have a man come west and
lecture on new thought. He will be in
Sjiokane during the fall.
Dr. F. C. Myers one of the local lead
ers, when Mlrad as to what new
thought is,said it m ans that we should
look on the blighter side of life. We
should educate our minds and will pow
er so that we can practically control the
circumstances that go to make up our
individual selves.
We constantly affirm to our subcon
iciout mmdl the things that we wish
for our own improvements and for the
good of o hers. We should assert our
eiroand s-elf in all that is good and hon
orable, and we are not poor worms of
the dust, but we are made in the image
of god, with the power to attain our
hi^ln.-t ideal if they are for the good
of ourselves and humanity.
H. S. Pentecost says:
The New Thought league is an or
ganization without creed or constitu
tion, rule or regulation. It calls on
every individual in its sphere of influ
ence to be his best self, live his own
life, and by making his own character
large, noble, rich and sweet, to serve
humanity splendidly, as no product of
mere conformity can dream of serving.

"It is embarra:>in<r sometimes to pur
sue a direct line of questioning," said
President Eliot of Harvard, in telling
kbont a recent visit to New York. He
had just dined at a hotel in Fifth ave
nue, where the man who takes care of
the hats at the dining room door is cel
ebrated for his memory about the own
ership of headgear.
"How do you know that is my hat?"
the collegian asked as bis silk tile was
presented to him.
'•I don't know it, 6uh."" said the door
man.
"Then why do you give it to me?" in
sisted President Eliot.
'•Because you gave it to me, suh," re
plied the darkey.
He got his quarter of a dollar.—New
York PrOM.
Snulloned a Splinter
A piece of pencil two and a half in
ches long and as sharp as a needle point
has been removed from the right hand
of Rosalie K. Lake, a nine year old
Brooklyn. New York, school girl. The
piece had been working its way about
the child's body since January last,
when she swallowed it while at play.
Efforts to remove it from her stomach
then proved of no avail, and for several
weeks she has complained of paina in
the »ide and shoulder. Finally the ob
ject moved dowu through her arm and
caused her hand to swell. The doctors
were greatly astonished on applying
the lance and encountering the hard
piece of pencil. They say there is no
record of so large a substance passing
through a human body in a similar
manner.
