If one stands for con victions which run counter to other people's views-and anyone who has real and sincere convictions ls likely to run counter to the views of those persons who are of opposite opinions -the standing for them brings dif ferent molds and no two persons see the same thing in the same manner. Then, what is a conviction for one person, and hence a duty to perform, to another is nothing but a passing thought. One man makes a mountain out of a mole hill and another makes a molehill out of a mountain. So thin ls life. The thing, therefore, for ono to do ls to live his or her own life, and satisfy that Inward monitor which makes for peace of mind and personal happiness. True, you will not please some people, and there will be some against you, but the most important person to please after atl Is one's own self. You have to live with yourself ell the time, and see that other person who thinks badly of you but once ?tx a while. It ls of vastly more Importance, there fore, to please that person whom you see most, and whom you know best. One who stands for things that are right, and pure and holy, need not expect to be popular with those who ? have evil thoughts or who do not stand for those things. As one so well said v.o the writer sometime back: "laey do not ring true, and you need not hope to stand In with them." It Is with feelings of respect that one runs up against a man who has honest and sincere convictions and is not afraid to stand for them. From what we have been able to see Governor Manning is such a man, and he is getting the plaudits of all peo ple, whether or not he belongs to their political faction, except those of I course whom he has to condeun In the performance ot his duty as the State's chief executive. Newspapers also should haye con victions. A newspaper Is but the mouthpiece for the thoughts and con victions of Its editors, ana If a news paper real)? has honest and sincere conviction., .'here will be those who will differ from its views. A real i. newspaper man likes to have persons take issues with opinions expressed differing from those of the newspaper, and an editor usually ls never bet ter pleased than when he can con trovert some opposite opinions. A knife ls sharpened by whetting lt against a rock. So Ia a mind, bright ened by rubbing it against some other mind. But au editor despises a little bit of a mind which feels an affront at an opposite expressed, and which seeks to do the person pr the paper ah injury because forsooth the news paper man dees not agree with the views held by the person. All men should learn the difference between convictions and person thought. We have heard of men who thought they were almost annihilating a newspaper when they stopped a subscription for these differences of opinion, but al most in every such case there were always two or more to step In and take his place. The editor of The Intelligencer has enjoyed the discussion over the road bond issue. We feel that with the geed feeling displayed by those de bating the question, only good has re sulted or can result. But, what we started out to say was thai, ons should do one's full duty at all times so as tn please thnt inward OT ml tor -conscience.

As the evening shadows gather. Then 'tis cuddle time, I know. When my baby, dressed for dream land. Come aromping to me so; Comes and begs of me to hold him On my knees and "rock-a-bye," As the purpling sun sinks lower In the gleaming western sky. And he cuddles to me nearer, As thc firelight softly glows, And across the dusky portals 1 Ghostly, flickering shadows throws; And two dimpled arms about me Are clasped tighter for a kiss An, was richer, rarer necklace Placed about one's n?ck than this? And I clasp and hold him closer, ? Lillte to?sled head jf gold, As he begs dad fpr a "story" Which a hundred times I've told, Degs to have me "tell lt over" Or the quaint Red Riding Hood, Of the bears-that happy family Living in the deep, dark wood. Soon the drooping, drooping lashes Cover up two eyes of brown. And the tousled head so golden On my breast sinks lower down; Lower yet, till deep in slumber, Cuddled close to me he lies, With the glory of the sunset In bis sleeping, dreaming eyes. In his eyes, in whose rare lustre Shines the beauty of the dawn, Till I knoW that into r.-eammnd My weo solden head has gone. Ah, the sweetness of the pleasure. Making life one golden rhyme.
