Two weeks ago Mr. Harriman was a gloomy pessimist. Every thing was going to the bow-wows. He could see no good In the hear ing of the interstate commerce Commission, When the hearing was held Mr. Harriman frankly told the coun try how he. Harriman the private citizen, had sold several fine gold bricks to Harriman the official. He then was seized with brilliant flashes of silence respecting the size and number of this kind of bricks he had sold the confiding public. He freely told what he had done to Harriman, but coyly refused to tell what he had done to Alton stock holders. All this as Dr. Jekyl. Then Mr. Harriman followed his evidence with Ihe statement that President Roosevelt was "a well-meaning man" but "undisciplined." He saw in the president a Sampson [lulling down the pillows of so ciety about his head. All in his proper person as Dr. Jekyl. When lo! Mr. Harriman suddenly becomes an optimist. He rubs his hands cheerfully over Ihe prospects of business. He sets the country a new lesson in ethics. He i s a friend of the dear public. Perhaps he has not been as open in his methods as he ought to have been. etc. But now! He would woo the public. He would walk hand in hand with government. He goes to Washington hoping he may see this ' undisciplined" president of the republic, and failing, promises to come again that the joy of reconciliation may be full. It is Mr. Hyde. And the dear public? The dear public wonders In its dim and trustful way what Mr. Harriman wants to steal next. Be good and you will lie happy? Not necessarily. Be honest and you will succeed In business? Not necessarily. On the stage virtue is always triumphant over wrong, but it is not always so in actual life. In actual life vice does not always come to grief as does the villain in the book. But— There is a large truth in these old ethical formulas. Because It remains a fact that, other things being equal, the good man has a better chance for happiness than the evil man. It lemains a fact that, other things being equal, the honest man is more likely to be suc cessful than the dishonest man. Character will always be a factor in ttie success equation. Goodness yoked to ability and energy will produce a strong char acter. While ability and energy yoked to a vicious personality runs the chance of weakness. Sometimes you see the wicked flourish like a green hay trees and you conclude that rlgbteousne tusnesg does not pay. There could be no greater mistake. Ignoble success, after all. is only successful failure. Uprightness and honesty do no! of themselves insure success. Much less do dishonesty and Uprlghteous Insure success. Honesty pays. And dishonesty and vie'ousness do not pay. What you learned at your mother's knee will never be barred by the statute of limitations. MOST AN/Tfl I HQ A WORD FROM JOSH WISE.

I saw her first in the Pompeiian room at tlie Auditorium annex. At the time I happened to be din ing with Barllli. Barilli is an in ternational secret service man. I met him in the Riviera two years ago, and our accidental encounter In Chicago was the occasion for a little reunion. He followed my eyes and saw at whom I was gazing. "She is a superb creature," I ejaculated. Barilli looked annoyed. "Oh, yes," he said, and commenced speaking volubly of something else. But I had eyes only tor the glorious woman at the table near the pool. After dinner I hastened to the register. Instinctively I picked out the name "Mile. Namaroff." It must be she. Ii had struck me that she was a foreigner. At the elevator fortune favored me. Mile. Namaroff swept by, daz zling, regal. She dropped her fan. I handed it to her She smiled. I saw Barilli scowling in the back ground. The next day I was introduced to her through my friend, the Rus sian importer, Kestormann. Mile. Namaroff was charming. She spoke excellent French. Barilli. when I told him, was evidently annoyed. "I adjure you to be cautious," he said. "1 believe you are dogging this lady," I said with heat. "I admit it," he replied icily. "Explain me this riddle." said I. "A dangerous woman," he re sponded unblushlngly. "A nihilist." For a moment I was convinced. Under great beauty and gracious nes.s (hose Russian women can hide a volcanic fury. till! once uniler the spell of her soft voice and her adorable eyes I sent Barilli's warning to the four win ds. I treated the polished sleuth coolly after this. It is enough to produce resentment when one shad ows the woman you love, as if she were a criminal. A day or so passed, and I forgot Barilli. I implored Mile. Namaroff to be my bride. "Come tonight for your answer." she said, with a sad" smile. 1 was ready to go to her suite when Barilli sent for me. An un utterable curiosity made me re spond. I determined also to throt tle him if he cast another word of aspersion upon Mile. Namaroff. But Barilli was all cordiality. "I have sent for to reassure you," he said "I find today that lam mistaken. The lady Is not the per son I supposed her to be. It is a case of mistaken identity. We will drink to her health, er, kamerade?" An hour later I awoke with a splitting headache, Where was I? Ah. I knew. Bursting open th* door I hastened to Mile. Namaroff's suite 1 beard loud voices within. I forced my way past the maid and there was Barilli, upbraiding my be loved. Mile. Namaroff turned to me with a glad cry. Barilli staggered back, muttering wrath. "1 owe ii to you, Mr. Clairham, to announce my true identity. I am not Mile. Namaroff. I am the Prin cess Nadine, traveling incog." I saw ii all Barilli was an agent of tlie czar to escort her on her travels He had but been trying to SUMMER HATS The milliners are already show ing extreme summery hats. A chic one, in erin braid, is small and worn well over the forehead. It combines silver gray ami pink, as to color, and velvet and gull's a» to decorations. The left side of the brim Is broad and smartly turned up. Its face shows a large ChOU of pMtel pink velvet. From this two curled quills appear, one of the sllvei gray of the straw, the other a soft pink, with a bluish tin^a, SPOKANE PRESS, MARCH 15, 1907 do his duty, but strenuously in deed. "Then I cannot hope." said I. crushed. "But my fortune Is in American railroad securities, and 1 need not return to Russia," said she, coyly. I clasped her to my arms. There was nothing for Barilli to do but go home and face the anger of his imperial majesty as best he could.

Her husband, chief of the Quinalts, died about 40 years ago. Two of her sons still survive, but follow ing the custom of the Quinalts, who cast off their aged to die as soon as they become helpless, they will have nothing to do with her. A few years ago a distant relative of the old princess died and left her a small farm near Montesano, Wash., and for a short time she enjoyed the comparative comfort of living on an income of $5 a month. An unscrupulous lawyer, however, pre vailed upon her to sign away her rights, and she was compelled to return to her original condition of wretched poverty. Now she passes the long days wrapped in a bundle of ragged blan kets, before her smouldering drift wood fire. So old and feeble is she that it is only with the greatest difficulty that she is able to move about. An old woman companion, who lives with her, hunts for dead fish and clams along the tide line. "Granny" Mason has seen her tribe dwindle away from a number of thousands to two small villages of about a dozen families each. "Gran ny" Mason is only too glad to die.
