Simplicity and lowl station plain dress n modest dwellln slender means poverty these things Eccm to go together Nevertheless the is not the case Just now I passe three men on the street the first In hll carriage the others on foot und one of them shoeless The shoeless man does not necessarily lead the least comple life of the three It may be indeed that he who rides In his carriage Is sincere and unaffected In spite of his pi sltlon and Is not at all the slave of his wealth It may be also that the pede trlan In shoes neither envies him who rides nor despises him who goes unshod and lastly it is possible that in ear his rags his feet in the dust the third man has a hatred of simplicity of labor of sobriety and dreams onl of Idleness and pleasure for among the least simple and straightforward omen must be reckoned profession beggars knights of the road parasite and the whole tribe of the obsequious and envious whose aspirations nre summed up In thisto arrive at seizing a

hili chief care Is the wish to be what lit ought to bethat is honestly and nat urnlly human And this Is neither sc easy nor so Impossible as one might think At bottom it consists In put ting our arts

Centuries of research are often condensed Into a principle l that a line may state Hero the moral p life presents strong analogy with the scientific It top begins in a certain confusion makes trial or Itself seek to understand itself and often mi takes Rut by dint of action and ex acting from himself strict account of his deeds man arrives at n bctt knowledge of life Its law appears Ito him anti

thing that makes us see across our poor UVCH a splendid goal and 11 bound less future comes to us from people of simplicity those who have made an other object of their desires than the passing satisfaction of selfishness and vanity and have understood that the art of living Is to know how to give iiies life CHAPTER HI SIMPLICITY OF THOUGHT Is not moue among the practical manifestations of our life that ITthere Is need of making n clearing the domain of our Ideas is in the sonic case Anarchy reigns in hu man thought We walk In the woods wIthout compass or sun lost among the brambles and briers of Infinite de all When once man has recognized the fact that he hRs an aim and that this ahn Is to bo a man he organizes his thought accordingly Every mode of thinking or Judging which does not make him better and stronger he ro sects as dangerous And first of nil he flees tho too corn mon contrariety of amusing himself wltll his thought Thought is a tool with its own proper function it isnt a toy Let us tako an example Here is the studio of n painter The implements nre all in place everything Indicates hat this assemblage of means Is ar anged with view to an end Throw the room open to apes They will climb on the benches swing from the cords 111 themselves In draperies colt thorn iclves with slippers Juggle with brush i nibble the colors and pierce the can uses to see what is behind the paint I dont question tholr enjoyment Cer alnly they must find this kind of ex rclse extremely Interesting But an itellcr is not made to let monkeys grOUnlllfortastes are he goes about it with blsI whole heart and not with that fitful md sterile curiosity which under pre text of observing and noting everything runs the risk of never experlenc ng a deep nnd true emotion or accom dishing a right deed Another habit In urgent need of cor ection ordinary attendant on conventional Ute is thq mania for examining and analyzing oneself at every turf I do not invite men to neglect intr spectlon und the examination of conscience The endeavor to untlcrstan ones own mental attitudes and motive of conduct Is an essential clement uf good living But quite other is this extreme vigilance this incessant obse vntlon of ones life and thoughts this dissecting of oneself like n piece of mechanism It is n waste of time mill goes wide of the mark The man win to prepare himself the better for wall fug should begin by making a righI anatomical examination of his mean of locomotion would risk dislocntln something before he hind taken a step You have what you need to walk with then forward Take care not to fall and use your forces with discretion Potterers and scruple mongers are soon reduced to Inaction It needs but n glimmer of common sense to percelv that man Is not made to pass his life In n self centered trance And common sense do you not find what is designated by this name becoming as rare as the common sense customs of other days 1 Common sense has become an old story We must have something new nnd we creat a factitious existence a refinement of living that the vulgar crowd has not the wherewithal to procure It Is su agreeable to be distinguished Instead of conducting ourselves like rational beings and using the means most ob vlously at our command we arrive by dint of absolute genius at the most astonishing singularities Better of the track than on the male line All the bodily defects and deformities that orthopedy treats give but a feeble lIen of the humps the tortuosities the dls locations we have Inflicted upon our selves In order to depart from simple common sense nnd at our own ex pense we learn that one does not de form himself with impunity Novelty after all Is ephemeral Nothing endures but the eternal commonplace and If one departs from that it is to run the most perilous risks Happy he who Is able to reclaim himself who finds the way back to simplicity Good plain sense is not ns is often imagined the Innate possession of the first chance comer a mean and paltry equipment that has cost nothing to any one I would compare it to those old folk songs unfathcreel but deathless which seem to have risen out of the very heart of the people Good sense is n fund slowly and painfully nccnmulated by the labor of centuries It Is n Jewel of the first water whose value he alone understands who has lost It or who observes the lives of others who have lost It For my part I think no price too great to pay for gaining It and keeping It for the pos session of eyes that see nnd a judg ment that discerns One takes good care of his sword that It be not bent or rusted with greater reason should he give heed to his thought But let this be well understood An appeal to common sense Is not nn appeal to thought that grovels to narrow positivism which denies everything It cannot see or touch for to wish that man should be absorbed In material sensations to the exclusion of the high realities of the Inner life is also a want of good sense Here we touch upon a tender point round which the greatest battles of humanity are waging In truth we are striving to attain a con ception of life searching It out amid countless obscurities and griefs and everything that touches upon spiritual realities becomes day by day more painful In tho midst of the grave perplexities and transient disorders that accompany great crises of thought It seems more difficult than ever to es capo with any simple principles Yet icccsslty itself comes to our aid as It has done for the men of nil times The programme of life Is terribly simple after all and In the fact that existence so Imperiously forces herself upon us she gives us notice that she precedes my idea of her which we may make for ourselves and that no one can put Dir living pending an attempt to understand life Our philosophies our ex donations our beliefs are everywhere loufronted by facts and these facts prodigious Irrefutable call us to order when we would deduce life from our easonlngs nnd would wait to act until vc have ended philosophizing It is his happy necessity that prevents the world front stopping while man ques ions his route Travelers of a day re are carried along In a vast move aent to which we are called upon toi ontribute but which wo have not foreseen nor embraced In its entirety nor cnotrated as to its ultimate alms Our part Is to fill faithfully tho role of mni ate which has devolved upon us nnl1 our thought should adapt itself to tbe situation Do not say that we live In more trying times than our ances tors for things seen from afar are uf- ten seen imperfectly It Is moreover jarcely gracious to complain of not axing been born in the days of ones randfnther What we may bellevo least contestn ble on tho subject is this From the beginning of the world it has been hard toi see clearly right thinking has ben difficult everywhere and always In- the matter tho ancients were in no- wIse privileged above the moderns and It might be ndded that there is no dlf irence between men when they are considered frdm this point of view Master and servant teacher and learn er writer and artisan discern truth nt- tho same cost The light that humanity iqulrcs

Thursday This is all Mr Richardson can say what he pleases about the NEWS It wont be first time the NBvs has been denounced by yaller dog politicians We want to say this in regard to Mr Richardson and we give the Democracy the Tenth Senatorial District fair ivarniiig that if Mr Richardson secures he nomination he cant he electel The independent voters of this district wont support him and the independent vote are proud to say holds the balance power The independent voters want good clean man to represent them a nan who is free from all entangling al iaues a man who is above the saloon with a distillery at his back a man who above reproach in every particular and man who will not resort to anyold scheme to secure his nomination and ikewise his election The independent voter dont give a snap whether hes a Democrat or a Republican so he is a air man a clean man and pledges himself to represent the people and their interests and not class Interests Suppose every man in the Senate had a dfo illery and a saloon back of him what kind of a show would the temperance people have in their hands And we rant to say that the temperance people have rights that must be respected especially in the Tenth Senatorial District Tno farmers are making one mis nice we might say two in their fight against the trust They are now mak preparations to burn as ninny plantbeds and set out as much tobac o as they did the past season If hey would make up their minds not o put out another plant or chew an other pound of trnst tobacco they would show to the trust and to the world that they meant business Our advice and its the advice of older heads as well is not to burn a plant bed this year especially Let it go over for a season and turn your attention to raising chickens eggs and turkeys cattle hogs and mules These are all money bringers and theres not a far mer who cant raise them A load of turkeys or chicKens or eggs will bring as much cash aa a load ot tobac co and theres an open market always for these products And heres another bit of advice well give you Dont sit around the stoves and sponfagin the tobacco trust and at the same time take out of your pooket a big quid of trustmade tobacco and spit theambler all over the stoveThats the very thing the trust wants you II Mr move his family this and will occuoy the on Cor to do As long KB you buy their pro and furnish them With a big supply the raw material theyve got you just where they want you There are plenty Independent brands to that are just good and besides if you the indepen dent manufacturer and increase the sale his product yoU make him a factor the market tor your product and the more independent buyers you have the greater the competition and tne the compAtition on the op en market the better the prices These have and are the tactics the trust to kill off the independent buyers As long the trust has a monopoly of their manufacturer tobacco and farmers and everybody else go right on buying itit stands to reason they can control the raw productThe way to tight the devil is with fire u u n U n n Dont e Forgetm 3 txj lft c53MKbu m T C Lewis Son Is headquarters for the fine arts in jewelryeverything a
