He is worth getting acquainted with— this sometimes mild, sometimes! wild brother whose hind is getting moro : numerous as the years go by. Time was. and not so very) long ago, either, when we looked upon the socialist from j afar and approached him in cautious apprehension. He might explode, we fancied, or reek revolution all around. On slight provocation he might get very had. He was agin the government and there was no telling what lie might do. But today he is with us in the workshop and office. Not infrequently he is our neighbor. More than that he is usually a good workman and a good neighbor. When you get him fit close range you fail to discover horns on his head. He's actually human. Occasionally lie is undoubtedly insane; and that's merely another proof of his humanity. He's prey to all the ills that flesh is heir to—hut a socialist still. Once innoculated he'll he one till he dies—and afterwards if there is an opportunity. lie is salted with socialism for all time, if it takes. And there he stands in his overalls on the broad pathway of everyday life with his fist raised in ever lasting protest against things as they are. His vote is protest, his voice vocalized protest, his life protest per sonified. And he never misses an opportunity to let you JxllOW it. Night and day he hammers fiercely at that frightful thing he calls the "system." In it he sees the fountain bead of all our woes. When he gets that "system'" re organized, rejuvenated and disinfected, the industrial and political millenium is here and there will be noth ing better to strive for. He feels the responsibility of a great mission heavily upon him—the temporal salvation of mankind. No wonder lie's everlastingly at it. He's trying to carry the biggest load ever piled up. Abolish the "system." he says, and give mankind a chance. Open the door to everyone alike and tlie ills of the day will vanish as a seared antelope fades into the landscape. It's no use to tell him equal opportunity is BOW offered every man who wants to work. He will fehow you a line of barriers ahead that will scare you for a minute and sometimes longer. Behind it all the "sys tem" looms up grisly, merciless, cannibalistic, everything that's vicious and voracious. To put it mildly the social ist is dissatisfied. But after all we're traveling the same wide road to gether, all creeds, all parties, all colors and tempers. It pas a common ending soon or late. Possibly some day ihe socialist will reach the dizzy emminence of power find drink the long, deep draught of national responsi bility he covets. Face to face with the problems that fliave grimly confronted the best brains since the incep tion of government, he may have the chance to cast aside She theorizing and criticism lie now employs himself with and grapple hand to hand with the revision of a race that is pretty well satisfied with itself already. But he figures that the task will be simple enough, and greater faith in himself and his kind hath no man ihau this. t A young Pittsburg millionaire lias broken down at 3u lender the strain of the race for wealth, and has been sent jto a sanitarium, a hopeless physical and mental wreck. How many millions had he made? That's the first information given in the dispatches. Ct is the first question thai comes to the average mind. Bui what's the difference to him now whether he fciade three millions or thirty millions? The one amount means no more than the other to a Juan in a madhouse. The main point is—he made too much. He has heaped up what is a huge pile of trash to him pOW, and in doing it has ruthlessly sacrificed the most breciom possessions any man can have. F The dog crossing a brook who dropped his hone to fnateh at the shadow of it reflected in the water has many ft parallel among men who sacrifice health and happiness for money. Of course, the worn-out money chaser may have the fat isf act ion to reflect, if he is in any condition to reflect j lit all, that li is millions may give comfort and pleasure Ho those who love Vim and have been dependent upon him. Dhit perhaps these w.uld rather have him, in sound mind kind health," than his money. Would you think it seaside to wreck your bruin an<3 Ibody in piling up money for others to spend who would rather have the money than have you? » The feverish desire for wealth which leads a man to irreck his health in attaining it is little if any less ig- Jioble than that which leads a man to commit crime for it. WCaltb can mean nothing good to any man if it does Dot bring him better health, more wisdom and mellower ■pirit. mtr.; ■ ■=-•-- ■ „ SPOKANE PRESS 25 CENTS PER MONTH THE SOCIALIST. WEALTH OR HEALTH? Altered st Spokane. Wash . as Second ;iass Matter FALSE THINGS ALL THE RAGE FOR WOMEN THIS WINTER BY CYNTHIA GREY. NEW YORK, Nov. 17.—1 talked today to Mrs. Roso E. Livingston, a • dressmaker of Detroit, Mich., who had just returned from Paris, whore she represented her firm. Of course I began to ask her about Fiench winter dresses. 'Women dress to look like old pinnies," was one of the first things she taid. "And everything is false." "Faise?" said I. "Yes, pads, and plenty of them and wherever there is a chance for them. And false hair, too, is fash ionable. False puffs, false curls, I false braids, false rolls, switches, 'everything false. To be right in | style in the hair line one must have loads and loads of hair. There is where the old fashioned pic tures come in again. The old paintings show many styles of halrdress which are today quite the rage." "Do the French women pad more than American women?" ' Yes. Tlie French women are not so well formed as are the American women. They do not carry themselves so well, and they have decidedly less style about them. Any French costume is made smarter by an American touch." "What, is the prevailing style in dress?" "Empire effects, decidedly. The woman who can't wear the empire gown will do well to wear some adaption of it." "What is new in suits?" "Everything to be just right must be a three piece suit. For instance, a wine colored suit con sists of a skirt and coat and a cream colored bodice of lace trim med with the suit material in me dallion, button or strap effects. In some way the bodice worn with the suit, must, match the suit. In these three piece suits the Eton jacket is quite the thing. The Prince Chap coat is going out. The Pottjjr is still worn a little." "Are separate coats worn?" "Yes, the long, loose ones are smartest. Some are semi-fitting.' They are trimmed with braid." "What are evening coats?" "Nothing especially new. They are long, loose, with large sleeves, and are trimmed with lace, velvet and ribbon." "How are skirts made?" "Very full, seven and nine gores and plaited. Princess gowns are good." "What are the evening gowns?" "Chiffon gowns trimmed with bands of broadcloth of the same color are good. gowns are worn a great deal. They are made worn a great deal. They are made with touches of color to give them character. Blue is used with black. I saw a beautiful blacks lace gown made with a blue girdle and a blue bow at the front of the corsage." "Is chiffon velvet still used?" "Yes, for both evening and • street." "How about the length of skirts this season?" "Tlie ekirts are longer. Tho street skirts just escape the ground, while the evening gowns are new made with a demi-train." HER 23 CHILDREN WERE ALL HORN IN 24 YEARS CLEVELAND, 0., Nov. 17.— , "Twenty-three children In 24 years and all single births. Mine is the largest family In a family of large families, for I am the Itith of 21, and one of my sisters had 18 and the other 15 children," said Mrs- Wm. Matthews, of 122» Hamilton ay. "And of tho 23 children, just one little comfo.t is with me —my 22d baby, lid lib, who is now 15 years old! She keeps the house SPOKANE PRESS, NOVEMBER 17,1906 "Tell me something about shoes." "In Paris T saw nothing but white and black-. If a white gown were worn the shoes or slippers were white; otherwise only black were worn." "Gloves?" "The light leather shades are most, popular. They are the smooth, glaze kid." "Is jewelry in good form this winter?" "Oh, yes, any amount cf it. They wear bracelets, necklaces, bangles and dangles of all sorts." AMONG OURSELVES A WORD FROM JOSH Witt. A poor reason's uz bad uz an excuse. "What's Bunion's business?" "He has none to speak ot." "Nonr to speak cf?" "That's exactly what I mean. He distributes rebate for a railroad." "Mr. Sticker seems to be an easy going sort of a chap." "Does he? I guess he nevar call ed at your house." "Yes, in this world," said the se rious student, "man proposes " "And woman accepts," interrupt ed the flippant one.

THE DAILY SHORT STORY THE CDAR CHEST. — ■ — ■ tm "Pish." said Mr. Yelverton. i Now it is not agreeable to have j a man say "pish" when you are be- I seeching him for his daughter's hand, and all because you have only $2,000 a year and not $5,000. It was a shame. Louise and I loved each other madly—young people who are well regulated al ways love each other that way — and I felt that this ultimatum was outrageous. Yelverton was an auctioneer, but rich. He was musical, and played the piano while Louise and I naturally took advantage of the fact that his back was turned. "Still, Mr. Yelverton," I sug gested, "you won't object to my coming to call, I hope?" "Not in the least," he said, "if you " "And I do so enjoy hearing you play," I added, hypocritically. "Ah! Ah! Well. I must say, my dear you, you have good points about you. Yes; do come when ever you like —but mind, no love making." That night. I took advantage of his permission and range the bell, armed with a difficult Wagner score, which I knew would keep Mr. Yelverton in transports for an hour at least. It did, and as he thumped at the intricate chords and resolutions, Louise and I whis pered softly in the corner of the fireplace. At length he turned around. "Going to auction off a fine lot tomorrow," he said, addressing me. "So!" I Inquired, with an affecta tion of deep interest. "Yes>, sir—all that handsome furniture of old man Gray's, Been in the family a hundred years, I suppose. There's a cedar chest you ought to see—wonderful! Bet ter come and buy somelhing," and he laughed wickedly, thinking, no doubt, of my finances. "Probably I will," I yawned, carelessly, and dismissed the sub ject. Imagine my surpirse when, next morning I received a hasty and inexplicable note from Louise, bidding me attend the auction, and. at all costs, to purchase the cedar chest. There was no time for ex planation, so I drew my little bal ance and presented myself just in time. "Cedar chest," Yelverton was saying. "Fine cedar chest. Hun dred years old. Magnificent speci men. Worth $50 at least. How much to start It?" "A dollar," I said. "What's in it?" asked some one. "There's nothing In It," said Mr. Yelverton. "You can open It and see." "But it's locked." protested the possible purchaser. "Well," said the auctioneer, "it oughtn't to be. It was open an hour ago. Never mind.
