He later look up  what i.s now lhe Murphy ranch,  and endeavored lo develop lhal  Mr. Elson."   And few men havc  more friends. Mc was a familiar figure lo all; going aboul as  he   did,   day  after   day,   flower  picking    by    lhc,   roadside,    or  gathering   nuts   and   berries   in ,iwi  Lhc    woods    ncarbv.      Several,'excellent property while follow-jfimj m  vears ago, Mr. Elson sold lo P. J ing his business as a lailor.    InJ^,-,.  il.

One'of lhc conditions of there were nol manv  Ihe sfilc was  lira! hc should be  given  a home by Mr.  Murphy  for lhc  remainder  of  his days.  Since thai lime Mr. Elson enjoyed  lhe  best   thai  was  going  a I the King Edward hotel. Enderby,   up   Lo  Sunday  morning  lasl, when bc took brcakfasL as  usual aboul  9 o'clock and left  lhc    hotel   for   his    morning's  stroll along   lhc   Canyon   road.  He failed lo show up for lunch,  but as lie had frequently been  late in returning al other limes  no alarm was fell. However, as  night drew near, City Constable  Bailey started   for  the  Can von  road lo find him, as he had done  at   other   limes.'    He   returned  without Mr. Elson. Others went  out in twos and threes. Thcy  scurried about the bushes along  the railway track, and the hillside. Thev. too, returned without  Mr.  Elson.    Then  a  parly  thirty or more, wilh lanterns,  hunled lhe hillside back of Mr.  Barnes'    place,.   through    "thc  park"   and   around   the   Indian  church. Thcy were out until 2  o'clock Mondav morning. Thcy,  loo, failed lo find Mr. Elson.  Early   Monday   morning   Mr.  Paradis started alone. He found  the cane"(rack of Mr. Elson a I-  lhe point where hc was .accustomed lo leave the railway and  cross over to-lhc Canyon road.  This- lrack.be followed all  the  '"way up,the canyon to Mr. Wor-  thinglon's    place,    some    four  miles   from    lown.      Here   hc  -learned lhal Mr. and Mrs. Worthington had met,Mr. Elson on  the roadside close lo their place  Sunday   afternoon   about   1.30,  and bad  talked  with him,  cn-  davoring  to   induce   the  wanderer to return home.    His answers indicated  that  hc knew,  or thought he knew,"'wherc hc  wanted to go, and thcy Darted.  From  this point Mr. Paradis  tracked Mr. Elson's stick mark  down the road turning south, as  far as the Fear farm.   Here the  track was lost.    Enquiry a I the  .house and of farmers in lhc vicinity,   elicited  no  information  from any source. Mr. Elson had  not appeared at any ef lhc farm  houses,   and 'nobody   bad   seen  him on  the Fear road.

Any information  i'ill be appreciated by the men  leading  the  searching  parties,  they are completely "at sea"  to what next to do or where  i������������������ go to look the country over.

Addison says:    "Whal an absurd Ihing il is lo pass all over  Ihe valuable parts of a man and  fix our attention on his infirmities"'    But lhal seems lo bc lhc  habit.    About lhc first thing we  try lo find in a man is his faults.  They are apt  lo   transcend his  virtues, even if thc virtues arc  mountain high.    It is a deplorable babil, for il nol only does  great   injustice   lo    lhc   person  criticized, but it hurls lhc critic  himself.   It lowers his views of  life and  confirms  lhe babil of  seeing the worst side of human  experience  and losing sight  of  the bright side.   No man can bc  a   moral   man,   or  a   religions  man of any faith, who is constantly searching for the faults  of people.   The first duty a man  owes to his neighbor is to look  for the bright side and he will  then find,  in   most  cases,   that  the dark side is much  smaller  than he suspected. Thc thing to  attack is the sin, for we will discover tliat lhat is greater than  the man who is guilt}-  of it.���������������������������  Ohio State Journal.
