BOISE, IDAHO, FRIDAY, JANUARY 3, 1913. RIGHT SIDE UP. Though now and then our foot descend <o byways of despair, we nearly always In the end land right side up with care. I've seen a thou sand frenzied gays declare that all was lost, there was no hope beneath the skies, this life was but a frost. And then next year I'd see them scoot around In motor ears, each one a-holdliig in his snoot the richest of cigars. I've seen-men at the walling place declare they were undone: no more the cold world could they face, their course, they said, was run. Again I'd s, ■ them pranee along, all burbling with delight; what ever In their lies was wrong, became at last all right. And so It's foolishness, my friend, to weep or tear your hair; we nearly always. In Some rail It luck, some provl s a kind, o'crrullng sense that watchful eyes that mark our In the dark to guide us safely You'll find the helper there; • the e nd, la nd right side up with care. • donee , and some declare it fate; bi :it flier • make s our tangles straight; some gentle • movements as we roam; a ha ini « : ^tender • home .

And if it were by the exercise of some rare virtue or wisdom that he had attained that age, he could not be any prouder than he is. He is not a man who has accom plished anything in the world; he is distinctly narrow and unintelligent and of a very crabbed disposition. The years have neither mellowed him nor given him wisdom. He is a stupid pupil in the school of life, "well birched and none the wiser." Moreover he is very sickly and only prolongs his existence by the exercise of all kinds of precau tions. And yet he thinks his ninety years something to bo tremendously proud of! What queer folks wo mortals are! What strange things we select to ho proud of! Why, I know «a young wom an of twenty-five who is actually proud of tlie fact that sho is incapable of doing the simplest household task. I know another girl who takes infinite pride in the fact that she can't hear to eat ice cream with a spoon but must have a fork. And then there's a man who plumes himself on the fact that he can find evil in anyone and—but there, if I keep this up I shan't have any space left for my original subject. To return to the main road: Length of life is a blessing, the Bible says so. But how can anyone in his senses think it is to be compared with depth of life?

"The conference of Progressives to bo hold in Boise next Monday,'' stat ed James H. Gipson, chairman of the Progressive state central committee, "is l ot an invitation affair. All men and women in sympathy with the battle of the Progressive party for real freedom and for real government of the people and for control of all officials of tho täte by the people who elect them rather than control of the people by the ■ ■ fleers elected, are invited and urged 'o attend, and participate in the dis •rksions and to give their counsel and advice. A special offert has been made to secure the attendance <*f the ehair m oi and secretaries of the various < unity committees and of the county '•entrai committeemen so that those in attendance nifty have the advantage of their views upon the Important mat ous to be discussed, but this does not Ultimate that all others are not urged o attend. "The conference will be an informal ffair called solely for the purpose of discussing the public good, for mapping ■nt a party program, iiuli- a ting the •rineiples upon which the party will ta nd, for devising ways and means for arrying out the objects thus agreed upon and for extending the influence of •the party to men and women who have not yet been made aware of its pur poses." A meeting was hold a few nights ago of a few members of the party for the purpose of arranging for the meeting, jit is believed that there will be at least 100 visitors from counties other than Ada and that a number of Ada county members of the party will be in attendance. It was decided to hold the sessions in the "Dungeon" room at the Owyhee unless the attendance should be too large for that room, in which event the committee will be prepared to have ready a larger hall so that no delay in the work <*f the conference will be caused. \V.

CALOMEL, SALTS AND CATHARTICS AREN'T FOR YOU Harmless, Gentle "Syrup of Figs" Is Best to Cleanse Your Stomach, Liver and 30 Feet of Bowels of Sour Bile, Decaying Food, Gases and Clogged-up Waste. You old people, Syrup of Figs is par ticularly for you. You who don't ex ercise as much as you need to; who like the easy chair. You, whose steps are slow and whose muscles are less elastic. You must realize that your liver and ten yards of bowels have also become less active. Don't regard Syrup of Figs as physic. It stimulates the liver ami bowels just as exercise would do if you took enough of it. It is not harsh like salts or cathartics. The help which Syrup of Figs gives to a torpid liver and weak, sluggish bowels is harmless, natural and gentle. When eyes grow dim, you help them. Do the same with your liver and bowels when age makes them less ac tive. There is nothing more important. Costive, clogged-up bowels mean that decaying, fermenting food is clogged there and the pores or ducts in these and eighty in our neighborhood who has prolonged a life of nervous Invalid ism for the last forty years by concen trating on the task of keeping alive and by sapping the very life blood of the rest of the family. Surely this woman would have had a better score, to pre sent to the Almighty Scorekeeper if she had really lived, even if by so do ing she has shortened her years by half. Surely her length of life Is not to bo compared with tho few packed years of a young man who recently died at the age of thirty after having educated his two sisters, placed his father and mother in a position of financial com fort for tho rest of their lives, enjoyed several deep friendships, seen consid erable of tho world and influenced many lives for tho hotter. If ho had not lived so deeply he might have lived longer. Yes, and per haps Beethoven or Shakespeare might have lived to he old men if they had husbanded their vitality and not poured it out into their work. But surely no one wishes they had done that.

The above order was issued by Coun cilman T. P. Woodcock to whom com plaints were made that a number of saloons her»* were violating the city or dinance compelling a clear view from tile street of thy interior of the saloon. Mr. Woodcock personally made a trip of inspection over the city yesterday and found three saloons which were not fully complying with the ordinance, The saloons were the Bank, the Idanha buffet and the Overland. While the* obstructions were not bad they did not give a clear view as required and the proprietors announced that they would have the partitions and other obstruc lions removed at once. Section f> of ordinance No. 871 passed by the council Nov. 2, 1909, is tho one under which the order was given. The section reads as follows: "Tho interior of the bar room where tin* liquors and wines are furnished shall be in plain view from the street, unobstructed by screens, blinds, cur tains. partitions; or painted, ground or stained glass windows, or any other ob struction or device which may inter fere with a view from the street. And the placing and maintaining of any of said obstructions shall of Itself render the license void." thirty feet of bowels suck this decaying waste and poisons into the blood. You will never get feeling right until this is corrected—but do it gently. Don't have a bowel wash-day; don't use a bowel irritant. For your sake, please use only gentle, effective Syrup of Figs. Then you are not drugging your self, for Syrup of Figs is composed of only luscious figs, senna and aromat ics which can not injure. A teaspoonful tonight will gently, but thoroughly, move on and out of your system by morning all the sour bile, poisonous fermenting food and clogged-up waste matter without gripe, nausea or weakness. But get the genuine. Ask your drug gist for the full name, "Syrup of Figs and Elixir of Senna." Refuse, with contempt, any other Fig Syrup unless it bears the name—prepared by the California Fig Syrup Company. Read the label. Adv. ANOTHER PLAN OF COUNTY DIVISION IS BEING URGED Proposed to Carve Out New County From Northeast Part of Canyon and Strip of Boise. Butte county to be created out. of a northeast corner of Canyon county and a small strip off the west side of Boise county, is the proposal made in writing to members-elect of the Twelfth Idaho legislature by what is known as an "Organization to Create Butte Coun ty," of which W. T. Crouch is chair man and It. N. Cummings, secretary. The proposal brings another possible county division into the already long list. The notice that a fight for Butte county will be carried before the legis lature, signed by G. H. Holbrook of Ola, Charles Ireton of Sweet, D. M. John, George F. Zimmerman and George W. Knowles, all of Emmett, is as follows: "We want a new county formed from the northeast corner of Canyon county and a small strip off the west side of Boise county. This area con tains about 800 square miles with ap proximately $7,000,000 valuation. "Ninety per cent of the taxpayers of this district favor the movement as will appear from a petition which will he presented to you later, and the con tour of the boundary of the proposed new county Is in harmony with con venience and economy. We leave Can yon county with its necessary consti tutional area and more than $22,000,000 valuation, and Boise county with near ly 10 times its constitutional area and. over $4,000,000 valuation. "As it now is, the people of this pro posed new county residing in Canyon county must travel from 20 to 40 miles to their county seat, and the people in Boise county from 50 to 80 miles to their county seat. This makes county government and unsatisfactory and gives to the Justice of our cause. "When the time comes we you to support a bill in tho house of representatives for the formation of tHis new county, and should opposition arise, we trust you will frankly Inform us of its nature, for we feel that we can, in tho light of reason and the pressing need of our demand, over come any and all opposition that might develop. "Wo realize that you are under no special obligation to us, but as a part of tho great state of Idaho, wo feel that you will favor such legislation as will relieve the unfavorable conditions with which we are now burdened and at tho same time do no injustice to anyone.
