"HOISEST CLEAR THROUGH '
An editorial in "The Tattler," published by the students of the West De*. Moinea
high' school, reads its follows:
"It has been suggeitled thai when we see a professional thief ,ii an ex-convict we
tonally experience a certain fetling of pity or disgust for the man He seems sri
"different, and m far removed from our social sphere of existence. Yet, why i* it
that in.my of us feel M twinges of conscience, or feelings of disgust, Di self-pity,
■when we find our»elve» copying problems 01 inventing remarkable, stories to (it the
circumstances, wearing decorated cuffs and fingernails, and making u*o of the many
other little devices which are co often helpful in -i "light place"? Why not be honest
cl«ar 'through?''
Good! •*
The young editor has struck a fundamental: the indivisibility of moral conduct,
•You cannot be honest in one thing and dishonest in another. You are either honest
or dishonest—"clear through." It is not ■ part of your moral nature that is warped
by dishonesty, but all of it. .
The student who is dishonest in petty matters It likely to end up by being dis
honest in the larger affair* of life—dishonest clear through. >

RAINBOW TROUT A GREAT FAVORITE
The rainbow trout of the Pacific coagt
differ from the steethead trout in that ■
they are smaller fish and have much larger
■cales. They are found in the mountain

Generally the largest rainbow trout tak

although they range from half a pound to

BIG CONVENTION
OF THE GROCERS
SAX FEANCIBCO, May 2.-The aer

San Fraucisco today for a week* session,
is the largest meeting ever held by the
association. The opening session was held
tins, afternoon in the .'- pavilion,
the rainbow as the (jiinic-t of all li.-h.
In beauty of color, gamene»<. grace and
liveliness in the water, the daring dash
with which it goes after the descending
fiy, the'rainbow forces itself into the re
spect of every fisherman. The (ish takes
the fly readily, even greedily, and in ad
dition favors grasshoppers, salmon eggs
and other natural bait. >. < . .
Charles R. Lott of Chicago, president of
the association, presiding, l.arge delega
tions were m attendance from Illinois, New
York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, .Georgia, Mia
nesota, Michigan, Missouri. Tennessee,
Texas and numerous other states.
The bu»iue»s sessions of the convention
will be devoted to a discussion of various
questions affecting the retail grocery tra>le,
including matters 01 legislation on pure
food and other subjects. The entertain
ment program prepared by the local asso
ciation is an elaborate one. The visitors
will be taken on ■ trip to the Swiss-Italian
vineyards, to Oakland, Alauieda, the. l.'ni

eaten after a warm meal they are apt to
cause indigestion, especially if a half-hour
or »o has elapsed and the process of di
gestion is interrupted by sending another
supply into the stomach.
In spite of care, some find it necessary
to cleanse the system every few month*,
in order to feel well and look well. An
old rule for cleansing the complexion (rives
powdered charcoal (a teaspoimfid at a
done) mixed with honey, to be taken three
successive nights, and followed by a simple
purgative. Tin- is simple and effective.
Unless the impurities are removed from
the hystem, no amount of tonic will give
lasting benefit; it will ad only as a

These foods supply the strength without
being no bulky. The charcoal 1 tile i* bene
ficial to all, for the blood needs cleansing
at this time of the year, whether one be
