Ctruggle to Throw Off &n Influence. [Copyright, 1908, by American Press Asso ciation.] Ellsha Hereford at twenty married a girl of eighteen. Ellsha was rather a bright fellow, but without good judg ment. His wife was exactly the oppo site. She was not bright, but possess ed an enormous amount of "horee sense." For twenty years she kept her husband on the track and when he j showed signs of "breaking" would speak to him In no uncertain tone, pull strong on the curb and now and then give him a sharp cut with the whip. The consequence was that Here ford, being smart, by the time he was forty had secured a competency. Now, the thiug without which suc cess Is not to be attained Is often un recognizable, especially by the achiev er. Hei-eford attributed it in his case to his talents, arguing that if he were not pulled back by his wife he would be a millionaire. His most intimate friends knew that his wife had put those talents to their proper use and prevented his wasting them. Perhap...

Why We Need a Library A public library in our commun ity would be an influnce for good every day in the week. It would make the town more attractive to a class of people we want as resi dents and neighbors. It would mould the characters of the child ren in our homes. A good library would get gifts from wealthy citi zens. No other public institution offers so fitting an opportunity for ihe public spirited citizen to help his neighbors and win their ap proval and affections. A library in Newport would be the center of our intellectual life, and would stimulate the growth of all kinds of clubs for study and debating. It is a great part of our education to know how to find facts. No man knows everything, hut the man who knows how to find an indispensable fact quickly has the best substitute for such knowledge. We need a library to carry forth in a better manner the education of the children, who leave school;to give them a chance for self-educa tion. We need it to give thoughts and insp...

VOLUME Vlll DREDGING THE RIVER Contractor Beckman Starts the Dredge, Gappa To Improve River Channel The work of dredging the channel of the Pend Oreille river was started on Monday of this week. The steam dredge Cappa, owned by Contractor Beckman, i.f Seattle, made a beginning just below boundary island. The dredge work splendidly, the only trouble was that the machinery was so powerful the stream was too heavy for the casing holding the boxing. This will be remedied at once, and the gravel in the river on the bars will begin to fly in line shape right after Thanksgiving. Mr. Beckman says that the dredge proper works as well as a dredge of larger size and cost. lie can choke the pumps within a half minute at any time that he desires. This was done during the tests of the machinery. Thus the long deferred improvement of the great Pend Oreille river becomes ;i certainty. The appropriation is a miserly one, but the navigation com panies welcome the improvement and hope now that the ent...

Fortune ai\d A Castaway. "By Marshall CromUtelt. Copyrighted, 190S, by Associated .Literary Press. Most of the passengers were at lunch eon, for the steamer was still in the channel, and the choppy waves had small effect on the huge hulk of the liner. Even when the channel should be passed and the heavy swell of the At lantic should be encountered there would "be little motion and few ill, but today every seat was taken. Mason Hawley, coming late purposely, scan ned the crowd eagerly, then sank into his seat, his face clouded by disappoint ment. Hawley, despite a fund of commer cial common sense that bad enabled him to score a business success, was superstitious in many ways, lie had been a guest on a houseboat Just be fore sailing, and a wet day had been beguiled with fortune telling and simi lar devices of the rain imprisoned.

HOME TRADE MENACE How Parcels Post Would Help Mail Order Houses. REASONS FOR OPPOSING IT. Big Central Manufactories and Depart ment Stores Would Be Able to Crush Out Traders In Towns —How Small Plants Would Be Doomed. The following editorial appeared in the Minneapolis Commercial Bulletin recently and sets forth several new and strong arguments against any leg islation in favor of parcels post as ad vocated by retail mail order houses: "It is predicted by those who are well posted that there will be a much more determined and intelligent effort to secure the enactment of a parcels post measure in the next session of congress than was made in the session which closed some time ago. in pre paring to combat this effort those who believe that the extension of the par cels post service would be detrimental not only to their own business, but to the country as a whole —to the great body of the American people—must bring forward those arguments which are most likely to appeal to the great ...

The Little Tin Cottag CS& Hy Virginia "Blair. Copyrighted, 190 S. by Associated Literary Press. The sky was blue. and tin? lake was blue, and there were four blue birds against the silver gray of the lurches. "It's like a chain of sapphires,"' Peg gy said as she and her mother lollowed the narrow path among the trees. "Yes," murmured her mother faint ly. Peggy looked back at her. "Mother," she protested, "you are tired out," and she took the heavy bag that her mother had carried, and. thus weighted with two, she plodded on until she came to an intersection of the path. "I'm not sure which way to turn to go to our cottage," she said. "Pee* t "THIS is the way watek ought to be HANDLED." it sound too good to be true to say 'our cottage,' mot Iter V" "Yes, it does, and the rent Is so cheap," Mrs. Union said.

"You did," assented Sidney, "but, you see" — • I don't see you," broke in Jordan, "and 1 have had an eye on you, too, sir. Yuu have some $8,000 in the bank, drawing 3 per cent. I offered you an opportunity to invest it at 10 per cent, und you refused." "But, you see, 1 thought"— "That's the trouble. You don't think right!" thuudered Jordan. "You are afraid to risk it in a speculation which, i believe, will do better even than the 10 per cent I prophesied. Then you iiaug on to that absurd farm which is •U/uxid to be valuable some day' be cause it is on the water front." "it Is valuable already," interrupted Sidney.

History of the Northern Mercantile The Northern Idaho News, of Sandpoint, got out a 32-page Thanks giving number, which contained the following write-up: The Northern Mercantile Company, Limited, organized and began doing business in Sandpoint in February, 1903, in an old frame building on the Northern Pacific] [right-of-way. Two years later they began the construction of their present building, it being the the first brick building erected in Sand point. Anyone who did not live here at that time can hardlv appreciate the courage it required to invest $20,000 in a Hteucture located amid the surroundings that existed at that time at the corner of First avenue and Main street. The future center of the town was then a much disputed question and the ground selected by this company was in Farmin's pasture and was covered with stumps. The company have always pointed to their building with pardonable pride as a monument to their faith in the future of Sandpoint, and also their confidence i...

Laboriously he wrote on a card this fearsome thing: "Mynyddyslwyn."
