THE WORLD IS GROWING BETTER It may appear that there is sometimes a tone of pessimism in our editorials, and that we write often of bribery, corrup tion and double-dealing We are not pessimists, and believe the world grows better. If one is to appreciate this he should consider not alone the condition of humanity, but the gulf be tween barbarism and civiliza tion, with all it means to hu manity. The world is better, stronger, cleaner than ever before. Evils are often reported, but a^e not more frequent. In old times only evils near were known, but news agencies secure informa tion of every happening and it is reported in the newspapers on the morning or in the evening papers of the day. There are bad men, corrupt men. men who sell power and influence, men who betray confi dences, men who sell whom they represent to those who will buy, men whose votes and service are at command of powers of gain- and of guilt. But there are menoi integrity, incorruptible, of highest honor, whose service is faithful, and without faltering; whose every action is guided by duty, and these are not a few. They are many. Let us make distinctions, and not confuse good with bad. Let us recognize men of integri ty, whose names are towers of strength, ami whose unstained records are treasures. There are patriots who serve their country with zeai and fidelity, and not for gain. There are men who value good names and gives lives to this country in faithful service. There are heroes in private life,and patriots who seek no offices. The bad who serves country and the "interests,” each according to to pay received are a few. They do no more than mar the names of men and bring reproach where theie should be love, honor and trust. Let us separate the good from the bad, and first we must be men, and refuse to bow to men, or to become servile hero wor shippers. Here lies weakness, danger, that we place men so high that they are not called to occount; and should this govern ment perish it will be because we have ceased to remember that men are men. If the world does not grow better, as we wish, we must re member that it is great and that to grow into changes is the work of ages. Each great change must affect all humanity, and P R O G R A M.

From corruption universal and expect ed we have grown to a point vhere most men are honest, ac cording to some standards. There was a time when most men were but little above brutes, when robbery, rapine, murder, theft and every manner of evil was of hourly occurence, and were part of life. The growth of man upward is slow through ages, but there is always a growth upward, and during latter years this has been faster than before. Standards have risen and things once tole rated, or even commended, have come to be beneath the dignity of manhood, and are considered dishonest. That progress be made there must be disapproval and condem nation of all that is bad; but there must be approval of what is good. Let us then be out spoken in condemnation of those unfaithful; but let us give just approval of those who merit ap proval.- Ex. B. F. Wynn of route 5 was a pleasant caller at this oflice yes terday. l)r. J. L. Bell of Highland was in the city yestrday. He stated that the Elberta peaches would begin to move after the 4th. of July.
