The points of view from which people
see a thing may make a material lot of
difference in their conception of the thing
viewed. This is a well-known fact and it
Is not more noticeable than In North-
field at the present time, where a merry
discussion is going on in regard to the
number of intoxicated persons who have
been seen on the streets of that usually
quiet town on the "night before" the
Fourth. The discussion evidently started
from an innocent assertion by a man who
patrolled the streets of the village on the
last Fourth, that there was much less in-
toxlcation than on previous similar events.
Now out come two other patrollers of the
streets on the nights in question, who say
that they never saw any intoxicated in
dividuals on the streets of Northfield in
the several years they have been em-
ployed to guard the peace. Therefore, the
presumption is that not only wera there
less drunks than ordinarily last Fourth,
but there must have been less than none
at all, that is, judging by the assertions of
the three witnesses. Undoubtedly, how
ever, there was a blindness on one side or
the other, an unwillingness to see the eon-
ditions as they were. The Hard wick
Gazette says very aptly, in another con
nection, something which applies" in this
case. "It is a pretty poor sort of a person
that can't twist facts around so to prove
to his own satisfaction at least that his
own opinion is the only right one."

That Cures Called Humor.
Between the Incendiary who fires
neighbor's barn in secret vengeance, aud
the worthy who starts a "run" on a bank
with malicious gossip), there is only a
Gossip with-a-purpose has too often
been used to stab character and to wreck
fortunes, and it Is a great pity the law
cannot better reach those who employ
such intangible aud insidious methods to
achieve their ends.
Scarcely any enterprise, or individual,
no matter how deserving, is safe from the
subtle dangers of the gossip-monger, and
human nature so loves a morsel of such
"news" that it can be relied upon to
"push, along" a rumor when once it has
been judiciously started.
A vivid illustration of the gross injus
tice such a rumor can do is seen In the
"Force" Food Company's advertisement
of this date, wherein a reward of $5000 is
offered for the conviction of the parties
who initiated the suggestion that "F'orce"
A further offer of , $5,000 for evidence
that a single package of the million sold
contained anything except wheat, barley
and table salt is, of course a complete ref
utation of the rumor, even if the State
Supervision of Fowls was not in itself
.People who love fair play in business,
as well as In other matters, will read with
indignation that it has cost the "Force"
Food Company over $50,01)0 to publish a
refutation of this "rumor" in the news
papers of the United States and Canada,
and, probably, as much more In loss of
sales resulting from the baseless gossip
which did the harm.
The absurdity of the rumor Is apparent
when it is known that the public has con
sumed fifty million packages of "Force"
without a single instance of any ill effect
upon any one of the users.
The "Force" Co. are evidently suffer
ing tho usual penalty for success.
