One day last week Tom Hanson autoed to Oroville.   He had
two bottles of booze in the car

car and searched it.   They found
a flask,  containing   two inches
of Washington contraband���rye
whiskey in a boot of the car. Tom
had forgotten that it was there,
the booze being yellow with age.
For this terrible offence he was
fined $50 and costs in the "land

lucky to get home with his car.
Tom has appealed  to Washington for a decision.    The Oroville

found Tom's cache,   leaving the
bottles with the Osoyoos custom

Ideas of a Plain Man
There are four great cries of feeling which all human interest has
centered, and will to the end of
time; four spots in the soul's career
where it bursts into flame.
They are: Falling in love, getting religion, getting drunk, and
the madness of fighting.
These are the four keys of history.
_   They will, or some one or more.
of them will, explain every human
action.
They are those climaxes of life
when a man is more than a man,
or less.
The thirst for them is as inborn
as the thirst for water.
The child play them, the mature
seek them,  the old recall them.
These are the fonr wines that
poets drink. *
These are the four passions that
leads some souls to heaven and
others to hell.
They underlie the four great institutions of the race; love makes
the family, religious emotion the
church, intoxication the feast, and
battle-madness the army.   ���
These are the four pillars, two
of fire and two of smoke, burning
forever at the four corners of the
earth.
These have been men's gods
(true and false.) Perhaps this is
why they whom the gods love are
said to ' "die first,
And then whose'hearts are dry as
summer dust
Burn to tbe socket.
