Postofflce Box 4 Has disappointment come to you? Have you tailed in what you had most set your heart on? Did you rely upon some one's promise, only to find it broken? Have you Ust faith in those you trusted most? Well, if so, don't be downcast; don't give up; don't lose faith. There is but one question, after all, which is really vital to you— DO YOU BELIEVE IN YOURSELF? What if you ARE in hard luck, or poor and shabby? The old clothes and tho back street are a protection. Many a good work has been ruined because a man was too rich to keep a level head. Great thoughts and great deeds must have darkness and time to develop. A poor farmer boy in Norway dreamed of America, the land of promise. His dream ripened into ambition; he borrowed money for his passage and arrived in Madison, Wis., penniless and among strangers. But he was not alone, for with him came belief in himself. He knew scarctly a word of English. But language is not the best means of expression. He made himself understood through his work. He lived so wisely that, no matter how small his wages, he always saved a little. Nor oid he waste his energies and weaken his spirit by pining for what he could not have; but, little by little, then with longer strides, he pushed his way up out of poverty and obscurity. Today he is governor of Wisconsin. Every step upward in this splendid march was based on belief in self. Don't begrudge your years of poverty and struggle; they are the richest of your life. They are the years in which you give no energy and thought to making a show; and in which the best there is in you is growing stronger than the obstacles in your path, stronger than the limitation that s-hut you in. The Sadness of McCali's Death The more one thinks of John A. McCall, the more one is moved to sorrow. Of course, he is beyond reach of animosity, vituperation, Criticism. There must have been a great heart in his bosom, else he would not have drooped and died under the torment of public indigna tion. Calloused men thrive on that sort of thing. They say the public be damned, and with pockets filled with plunder insist that they are spotless. They do more than insist. Some of them make themselves believe that wrong is right; that vice is virtue. They are convinced that the necessities and opportunities of trade privilege them to gain wealth by methods that measured by moral standards should mean imprisonment and disgrace. And it is that very laxness of business life that makes the situation menacing. We have an environment and custom that seems to prove that success can be won by underhanded methods. We have million aires by the hundred who wrested their millions from the public through methods less honorable than those employed by the burglar. John McCall took advantage of his opportunities. As he lay dying, and but a few minutes from the presence of his God, he said that he had never knowingly injured anyone. He believed that. Men do not wit tingly lie when the final heart beats come. And the fact that he did believe in his own honesty of intent glaringly shows what a wall modern business has constructed between men and their own consciences. Yes, it is easy to be sorry for John McCall. He is gone. Tulips and the flowers of spring blossom near his final resting place. But there is more cause for sadness because men are still building monuments of gold on human injustice, believing, in their ignorance, that they do welL '•Millionaires who laugh are scarce," says Andrew Carnegie. Must be some mistake. There's John D. Rockefeller. He's pretty scarce just now, yet l.c doesn't laugh much. Looks like the sultan of Jolo got peevish because Taft didn't stay.

If Prof. Leo Walton wished to hand his name down to posterity, tie could not have chosen a better way to do it than to have fathered the 3 cent street car fare. Walton will henceforth be known as the Tom Johnson of Spokane. And let the street railway magnates of this city take warning—for the 3 cent fare war cry has never been taken up in earnest in any city in this country without producing results. It will produce them here. Lt will take time, but the ball is now roll ing—watch it grow. The thorn with which Walton has pricked the side of monopoly will soon be deeply embedded in its flesh. Judge Hamilton told the Arm strong insurance investigation com mittee at Albany the other day that a "yellow dog has courage and fidelity" and insinuated that a yel low corporation managed by yellow directors had neither.

Have you no ticed how your bills have been grad ually rising during the past two months? That means cloven-hoofed deviltry in the form of "aired" gas and crooked meters. In its particu lar line of saffron-colored crooked ness, this company is without a peer. By A Plain Spoken Citizen Did you notice with what a proud spreading of its peacock feathers our morning contemporary publish ed throe resolutions of the citizens of Nelson, expressing their appre ciation of the boosting Spokane has been giving the village on the north by its publicity movement? Those resolutions covered a multitude of sins when it included this same pa per among the institutions that are boosting, and singled it out for spe cial thanks. The Review's boost ing is like Contractor Murphy's deal with the city for loam to be taken from the lake bottom in Lib erty Park. Two loads for Murphy in return for one hauled upon the city park. The only boosting done in the Tall Tower is at advertising rates. Spokane society has again done itself proud. The local 400 ought to be granted gratis a membership as a whole in all the city's publicity organizations. They are dorng more to advertise the town than all other local forces combined. Since the announcement in The Press some weeks back that for months the Spokane river had been dammed with supposedly disease breeding saw logs without a user of city water having so much as an inkling thereof, the boosting organs of the Tall Tower have lapsed Into silence on the subject of contamina tion of water supply. By means of this bug-a-boo at least three im mense concerns demanding admit tance to this city were forced to go elsewhere for locations. To aid what particular private graft these boosting sheets spread broadcast its lies on this subject is only a mat ter of conjecture.

He was born In Dunfermline, Difeshire, in 1837, and discovered America in 1848, claiming all that section of Pennsylvania adjacent to and including Pittsburg by right of discovery. Beginning life as a weaver's apprentice he rapidly mounted the ladder of fame, land ing a good job as a messenger boy for a telegraph company three years later. His experience while acting in the capacity of messenger boy imbued him with the desire to establish circulating libraries throughout the world and in por tions of Scotland. Out of his first year's salary as messenger boy he purchased a largo steel rolling mill near Pittsburg. He became the leading roller of the country. What he didn't know about steel couldn't be learned by close perusal of the Congressional Rec ord. He was the first to introduce the Bessemer process in this coun try. He .made a very great deal of money, so much so that he finally found it convenient to retire and give the rest of us a chance. Mr. Carnegie lives in a magnifi cent castle called Skibo (pronounc ed Skidoo) in Scotland, but he votes the republican ticket in this country. There was no one at home when I crossed the thistle patches that grew ever and anon among the heather surrounding Skidoo castle. "Hoot, mon," said I, ponnding on the big front door, "is Andee in?" "Abide a wee an' we'll see, an swered a Scotch highball voice. I was told that, he was out in the world somewhere distributing li braries to unread people. "Is it a fact, Andy, that your one great desire is to die poor? If it is, I should like to observe that I have a large-handled wheelbarrow back ed up to the castle door, though that isn't what I came here to ob serve. Far be it from such." "Ah, weel, mon, Aye meet as weel tell ye. Aye ha' bean misquoted. I dinna ken whee a mon need be aaheemed to ha' plenty o' money all the time." "How many libraries have you given away?" "A very greet mony. Aye meet as well tell ye that Aye hoold th' dee niond studded beelt as th' cham peen giver of leehrarie3 in the woorld." "Is it true that It is mnre pleas ant to give than to receive?" I asked. "Eet Is —when ye ha" all ye want. Wheeu ye ha' noot, eet Is nasa Eminent Doctor Praises Dr. J. S. Guislnger, 90 years old of Pendleton, Ind., a distinguished practitioner of many years' standing and prominence in his profes sion, writes that Duffy's Pure Malt Whiskey has no equal where a stimulating and strength building tonic Is required. ph. jr. & GuiaiNGHK.

As my eyes wandered over Ski doo castle I was charmed with the modest manner in which it was fur nished with all the comforts and luxuries that cash down could down could buy. There wasn't a picture from the magazine section of a Sun day newspaper on any of the walls and the laundryman called at tbe .castle while I was there, which re ■ lutes tho base rumor that the wash ing is done at home every Monday. I saw no loose change lying around, but the surroundings convinced me that Mr. Carnegie must be a very wealthy man. "Ah, weel, must ye be a-going? But that' 3 the wee o" the woorld — hero today and eon Noo Jersey tomorrow. Coom aroond some day and ha' a leebrary on me." I thanked him and told him I was well supplied with literature — chat our library at home had all the interesting books of the day, includ ing the revised city ordinances, Webster Davis' "Account of the Boer War" and the "True Story of the Life of Lydla Pinkham."

"My father, who has always lived a very temperate life, is unusually halo and hearty for his age, being able to walk up town as quickly us myself.
