No one can blauie the neighbors of the Kansas farmer who wanted to name his son Leon Colgosz for be coming indignant and driving him out of the community. A man who would inflict such an outrage on a helpless infant is unfit to live among civilized people. "The Newspaper Hlue Hook" for 15MU-2, published by Theodore Weise of Chicago, is out, and the Han Nku is again complimented, as it has been several times before, by being named as one of the selected list of best newspapers. It is a compliment to any newspaper to be listed in this book as he selections are made en tirely without the knowledge of the publishers and are entirely without bias. It Is the only newspaper named from He Id ing. "Within five years every farmer as well as every city resident will have his mail delivered at his door," is the statement made by Supt. Machen of the free delivery division of the post- ottice department. , He added that the rural free delivery system will then be in operation over an area of 1,000,000 square miles and this will include all the inhabited territory in the United States. "There will be 6,000 rural routes In operation by December," he says. "Of these 1,300 were established up to June 3o, li00, while during the fiscal year ending last June, 3:000 were established. There are now on file (,000 applications and 'they are coming in by the hundreds from all parts of the country." The Omaha Hee gets off something that hits the mark on our queer moral standards. It is in this strain: Noth ing so incenses human nature as con tempt for its customs and beliefs, and it is quite posssible that the keenest resentment against the Americans in Manilla will be caused by the interdic tion of the national sport of cock fighting. The natives will And it hard to reconcile the facts that Amer icans drink whiskey in a way to as tonish them and yet have stern moral scruples about cock fighting. Indeed the Anglo-Saxon moral standards are something which, It must be confessed must rather confuse .the oriental mind. American officers who play poker prohibit gambling by the na tlves, and the interdiction of cock fighting must seem mighty queer to people who have npver witnessed the effect of American Sunday laws and the results of sumptuary legislation. It is an extremely mean person who hasn't some good traits, and the people are few who haven't some faults. Now which will you talk most about the good traits or the bad ones? Which will you think about most, your neighbor's pleasing characteris tics or their disagreeable ones? You deplore your own failings and seldom refer to them except to excuse them Just try doing that by your neighbor. When his disagreeable traits annoy you, when you are sorely tempted to berate his shortcomings, just call to mind some of his creditable acts. Do this purely from a selfish motive. Do it solely for the effect which it will have upon yourself. The person who goes through life looking for sunshine and cheerfulness and honor and virtue and chastity and fair dealing will find it, and will reach old age with a fund of good nature and an air of b elng at peace with the whole world. On the other hand the misanthrope who looks for corruption and oppression and dis honesty and vice and social na9tiness will find that too, and will reach old age with his soul dwarfed and cramp ed until his presence is dreaded like a plague. Cultivate amiability for one's mental characteristics are alwut all the attractions one has in old age. Urewt Luck of mii Kdltor.
