"Jf," wrote Do Tocquoville, "to  console you for being born, you  must meet with men whose secret  motives are always actuated by  fine elevated feelingp, you need  not wait, you may go and drown  yourself immediately. But if you  would be satisfied by a-few men,  whose actions arc in general governed by these motives, and by a  large majority of men ' who from  time to time aro. influenced by  them, you need not make- such  faces at thc human race."

Whiskey has cast a shadow over thousands of happy homes, and seems to  take a special delight in  capturing  the brightest minds.

To those   in normal  mental   and physical health,  all  kinds of alcoholic bevereges are as  distasteful   as a   naked   dose of  castor oil, or a swig of salts and  senna.

It is exhilarating to bo the sole  pebble on   the political beach, as  tho Conservatives are  in  British  Columbia,   the  two Socialists not  being enough to form an opposition  to the 40 Conservatives.    But tho  experience    of parties   that  have  occupied    this position   of lonely  granduer is that it does not pay.  Personal   differences of opinion  take tbe place of opposing views of  public policy by great and cohering  bodies of men.    They degenerate  into jealousies and breed factions..  It gradually becomes difficult to  carry through  large measures  for  tho public welfare in an  unselfish  spirit and without venality.   The  party loses the morals and the fine  fighting-edge that aro onorgied by  outright struggles with an intelligent, patriotic and vigorous minority.   Its dangers increase with  tho smallness of tho community.  The experience of the Jeffersoii-  ian democracy during 1820-80, miscalled "tho era of good fooling,"  shows that personal animosities can  ariso within a party without opponents and finally tear it to pieces.  The experienco of  tho  United  States during 18(51-9 when  there  practically    was    no   democratic  party in Congress to  oppose re>  Sane Sayings  Whon you feel down hearted,  depressed and all outsorts, just try  acting like a soldier: marshall your  forces, and look your troubles  squarely in tho face, put on a brave  front and yon will soon havo your  difficulties on thc run.  Small conquests pave the way  for greater ones. ,  Why you do a thing is as important as what you do.  The power gained by doing  things is of more importance than  the things done.  Happy tho man who can say at  night, "I havo done as well as I  knew how."  The Sun is always shining somewhere.  Character is easier formed than  reformed.  Ambition is tho baking" powder  of the world.  You cannot get all there is in  your work out of it, unless it gets  all there is in you.  If you cannot accomplish great  things, you cau at least do small  things greatly.  Remember it is aiways light  abovo the clouds; therefore climb  higher.  The man who cannot contiol  himself can hardly be expected to  control others.  Revengeful thoughts in hatred  sent, back to their source return;  so, setting fire to a neighbor's house  is apt one's own to burn.  The man who can stand erect,  holding body and mind above the  trivialities of life is the strong man  aud the man who in tho future will  be able to do most for mankind and  who will bo most wanted.  Think great good thoughts of  others, and others will think great  good thoughts of you. Chickens  come home to roost especially along  thought lines,therefore, think kindly and charitably of all mon. You  do not know just what you would  bo now if you had always been in  the other fellow's circumstances.  The stars to our vision shine oiViy  in darkness, so if there never was  night wo would be deprived of the  greatest sight that can be seen, the  starry heavens. So if wo never had  any trouble in life wo would not  value the greatest blessings of life.  Tho lightest heart can bear the  heaviest load.  The best time to begin is now; tho  best place is right where we are.  Do not say "I cannot do this, I  need not try."    How do yon know  what you can do until you try?  Too much rest means rust.   -  Live with  awine and you  will  soon drink swill.  The miracle of miracles is the  order of tho universe.  Fear is often the father of failure.  Shortsightedness alone is responsible for uncharitable judgements. Wo cannot see all that a  man is now, neither cau wo look  forward aud see what he may become.

He really came Into my possesion I  because his presence made for anything (but peace in his own family'  circle. ��������� . ,  -  'He had'a distinctly dlstrubing Influence upon his little mother, whilst'  his tiny brothers and sisters had absolutely no peace at all when he was  in the'box. Rarely sleeping himself,  he would not permit sleepiness In  others, and he growled, barked aud  grumbled at an .incredibly early, age.  In fact, when his eyes opened for the  first time he immediately'found something to' object to.      ������������������", *   i  Perhaps he counted' his brothers and  sisters, and thought his little world  overcrowded. I protested, of course,  against this aggressive though tiny,  personality being thrust upon me, but  my protestations were entirely , In'  vain, ���������     ,   .    ; [  It was pointed out to me that when  he fitted so nicely into my overcoat  pocket it would be decidedly mean'  upon my part not to offer hira a  home. , Again I objected, and reminded the over-generous ones of tho' vow  I-made when the bull terrier tiled that  his place should never be fille'2.   ir������.  This was firmly impressed upon me'  that in all human���������or rather canine���������  probability this black morsel would  never grow large enough to anything  like fill tho vacant space on the  hearth-rug that the* white one had'  occupied. So ungraciously, I permitted them to place him In my  pocket.  "If you really don't ^want him," said  the donors, "give him to tho first'  kindly-looking person you meet"  I mado no reply, but banged the  door behind me.     - ;_"  It was a particularly cold and disagreeable February flay, and I marveled at the number of people 111 the  streets whose faces ' matched the  weather.  Once, upon perceiving a kindly-looking old lady approaching, I placed my  ungloved hand in the pocket���������he had  taken a violent exception to the smell  of tobacco which pervaded the gloves  ��������� and his baby teeth vainly tried to  make an impression upon my thunb,  and, finding .this Ineffectual he su/ked  and licked it by turns and���������well���������the  old lady had passed, and I absolutely  had to take him in to the fireside.  He was so glad to find the hearthrug, and seemed to realize at once  that he had come into his own kingdom, for, stretching himself to his  very limit, with his little tummy turned towards the fire, he fell 'fast  asleep. After that I became merely  a guest at my own fireside. He took  absolute possession, and I could only  frit in my corner chair when he d.un't  want it, or preferred the center of the  hearthrug. Then I had to be very  careful not to let my slippered feet  sprawl about, or he would give a  deliclously tiny grow*, which compelled me to do it again, just to hear  the encore.  However, other dogs, other mannerisms, and the tiny tyrant led me  whither he would. I,had to give In to  the stronger Dersonality,"^ and walk  just where and as ta *3 he liked.  We had both ttf as scan many ; c-  tures in the fire tafor������ "she" came  upon the scene.        <_ f  Pog-wog bitterly resented her presence at the first, and it was_not until  afternoon when she made tea for us  that he really accepted her. I remember how he left my side of the table  and sat near her. I thought it so nice  of him, and wished that I had his  courage.  It'was after this that she acc.jpt.d  me.  Then, when we went walking, It was  Pog-wog the animal who changed the  order of his parade and led us Into  those dreamy, deserted streets, where  our whispers were softly echoed. So  I rechristened him . Pog-wog the  Matchmaker.  I am continually wondering what  was the original cause of our quarrel.  And yet, what does it matter now?  How can one expect a woman to care  much for one whose hair shows signs  of gray at the temples and looks thin,  at the top when there are so rrany  bright, handsome young fellows  about?  We will go to the old walk tonight,  Pog-wog, just you and I, as we vent  In those days before we ever thought  of "her."

The Colville Examiner has the  following to say about parcels post,  which contains much food for  thought:  The farmers and grangers of the*  county are agitating a parcels post,  or postal express.    The newspapers  of   the   country   are   filled  with  articles for and  against,   and tho  merchants   and   the farmers   aro  arguing as to its  benefits or its  harm.     Meanwhile    the   express  companies aro smiling, keeping up  the agitation on  its  present lines,  and reaping great profits from tho  express business.    The   same old  story-keep   tho    people   talking  upon some unreasonable plan.  If the grangers would demand a  ���������'government postal oxpress, with  service charges bases upon an  actual or legitimate operative cost,"  the merchants would unite with  them, and the express companies  worry. No ono objects to a lower  express rate or a lower passenger  rate, providing the reduction is  uniform, or equitable, or based on  cost.  When you find other plans being proposed, look to their source.  The oxpress companies have some  smart men in their pay.  HOPE'S POOR ROADS  A correspondent writing to the  Vancouver Sun from Hope says  that tho ��������� patronage system - of  government may be carried too far.  Ho states that in ten years time  thousands of dollars have been expended upon roads, and today, it  is impossible to find one mile of  decent road in the district.  As for the town itself, after rain,  the streets are just a chain of water  holes. It was felt that if this was  the best the road foreman could do  in over ten years' effort, it was  time the Citizens Executive (a non-  political body) took steps in the  matter,  Representations   were made to  the government extending over a  considerable time, but up to .date  nothing has been done.    The road  foreman, having control of the only  newspaper in the town, having become a large property owner;  and  carrying on business in many other  lines, is alleged to have used every  effort,    both as  the dispenser of  government patronage and in other  wave to keep his hold on the position.  When the meeting was called to  order it was found that the district  had  been   gone  through   with   a  j-niall tooth comb for new mem hers.  Tho constitution of the  provincial  association was discarded, foreigners of all nationalities wero rushed  in and given  membership tickets,  and   the whole proceedings  wero  carried out with a reckless disregard for tho beat interests of tho  conservative   association.     Whon  the nominations were made it  was  found that tho road foreman had  selected tho editor of his paper for  president, himself aa vice-president.  The rest of the committee were  made up of road  employees   and  those who want a government job;  also.some  of his   tenants.    The|  whole wore voted en-bloc.  up to-British Columbia in 1S5S," to  prospect.

After the gold excitement had played out I took a  ranch at Empire Valley and have  just sold out.    I -intend to go back  to Cariboo to prospect a claim I  located thirty years ago."   -Thus  spoke Mi\ Calvin Boyle,  who has  been in town for the last few days  on a shorfe vacation.     We wish we  had the time and the space to give  more fully the interesting history  of this hearty pioneer of the Cariboo,  who,  at the age of 87  will  again,go back to the old haunts to  try once more his luck in the absorbing  work   of   wresting   from  mother earth   her   great   secrets.
