THE SOUL OF A STOOL
WE WOULD LIKE to examine the
soul of a stool pigeon. We are willing to
wager that the most powerful microscope
would reveal nothing more than a leathery molecule, partially decomposed. And
at that we doubt if he is any less estimable than those who employ him, while
at the same time despising him. The
most notorious stool pigeon in history
was Judas Iscariot, who betrayed Christ.
Judas, though, had a spark of manhood
left that impelled him to go and hang
himself. We have yet to hear of any of
his disciples in B. ���. following his example, much as this is a consummation greatly to be desired.
The stool's sole occupation is endeavoring to persuade someone to break the
law. This is how he earns his ham and
eggs. To him the most beautiful word in
the English language is "treachery." The
more people he can inveigle into lawles-
ness, the more unholy joy he derives from
his slimey occupation.
If a man persuades another to commit murder, he is held equally guilty with
the murderer and both are hanged. But
it appears to be very wrong to condone
one kind of a crime, and very righteous
to condone another.
Of course, if the liquor act were properly framed or administered, there would
be neither stools nor bootleggers. That
goes without argument.
When a man wants a drink he doesn't
want a bottle. But now he is forced to
take a bottle, or nothing, if he gets it
legally.   Is this moderation?
In conducting any kind of a publication the editor can say all kinds of nice
things about individuals, their enterprises,
or their organizations, and rarely get a
thank you for it. But publish anything
nasty and there's sure to be a bunch coming around with blood in their eyes and
murder in their hearts There's always
somebody out for gore and editorial
scalps. A few days ago a letter came
from somewhere down Chicago way, addressed to "The Truth," Spokane. Enclosed was a postoffice money order for
six dollars. The writer thereof went on
to give his opinion of "The Truth," stating what a fine paper it was, and how it
should be encouraged, and patting it on
the back generally. Here, thought the
editor, is one instance where merit is appreciated; he began to swell up in fine
style, and was on the point of rushing out
and buying a new hat. But alas! As perusal continued, it was found that reference was made to religious matters, with
some mention of the Church of Truth.
This recalled to mind that the Spokane
Church of Truth issues a magazine known
as "Truth," and the inference was obvious that postal employees had got their
wires crossed. Regretfully the kindly letter and its money order were resealed and
dispatched to their proper destination,
with the "opened by mistake" sign attached. After all one more disappointment
did not matter.���Mining Truth.

There is no section of a community that does
not benefit by the hospitals. To the poor they
are an obvious boon, and latterly their direct service to the middle classes have been greatly increased by the plan for admitting paying patients
at fees which are within their means. Those who
in time of sickness can afford to pay for the most
skilled attention have the hospitals to thank for
providing the means of training physicians, surgeons and nurses. The need of the hospitals affects every one of us, and there must surely be
none who can justify to his own conscience the
witholding of that measure of practical assistance
which he can easily give.���London Daily Telegraph.
