Editors Are Human Beings Only two men in modern society are expected to be perfect. One is the preacher, who is expected to combine the meekness of John with the impetu- osity of Peter. The world is united in setting a perfect standard for him, and is woefully aggrieved when it finds that not always is he super-human enough to meet all expectations. The other man who is expected to be a veritable wonder is the editor. Even more than the preacher and the great men in other walks of life, the editor is expected to typify courage, deep conviction, wisdom, foresight, leader- ship and abject, pious self-sacrifice. He is the man St. Paul had in mind when he advised the early Christians to be everything to every man. It is needless to add that the editor must conduct his fearless paper and order pious life at his own expense. Natur- ally from the Godless and scoffers he expects nothing but jeers and the wag- zing of heads; but sometimes 5n his young and tender years of experience i  is misleiuto bel e six g that every man who makes a friendly "holler" is ready to crusade with him to the top of the hill. That is the point in his career when the young editor begins to learn. He begins to calculate just how many pounds of steam the mem- bers of his cabinet of self appointed ad- visors carry, and how many stations up the read of reform he can safely count on making. One editor philosophizes on the situa- tion u follows: "Newspapers are blamed because they don't regulate this and don't regulate that. The trouble is the newsl aper often finds that it is likely to regulate to uncomfortable lengths, once it gets started. Up to a certain point in the work of reform it will have the proper measure of sup- port; beyond that point this support vanishes, and the newspaper learns it is conducting a losing fight alone. Most reformers have their limitations. They are loudest for those reforms that do not directly affect their own affairs. When their toes are stepped on they of- ten perform such antics before high heaven as make the angels weep." There is only one sound and safe sat- isfying rule for an editor to have in mind when he undertakes reform and progressive work. That is to do the work without regard to who will or will not stay with him to the end; he mtmt fix his eye on the prin- eAple of the cause alone, make himself impervious to disappoint or surprise. He must expect to be misjudged and misunderstood. He must calculate just how far he can go, how much he can eriflce and still keep on the safe side of his businees responsibilities. He must have a faith in human nature that is too deep and broad to be upset by may of those little personal disappoint- ments that come with every effort at comradeship with weak humanity. In other words, saints as well as sin- lrs need the uplift of courageous ex- maaple.--Bellingham Sentinel. A Good Times Ahead It commences to look as though no matter what turn the national election may take Northwest Washington and Monroe in particular, may this fall wit- the beginning of another epoch of gmd times that will bring back all our ormer prosperity and make the town Nrain the best in this section of the gry. Never before have the farrr on  "m prosperous conditions nor Immd better crops nor the probability of better prices. And the mills and emps are getting to work again with every facility employed and with good dmae of being kept busy steadily for m years to come. geographical location of this corn- i munity with its good railroad facilities, [rich farming country and immense !bodies of timber to back it up insures that with normally prosperous conditions the town must continue to keep going ahead, and everything points now to a re-awakened business activity that will make us all forget the past year of de- pression. Now is a good time to come to Mon- roe and get located. Get in before an- other rush and grasp some of the op- i . . . i portumtms for investment that are of- i feted on every hand. Roosevelt a Nominee The national progressive party met in Chicago this week and did what was expected of it in naming Thodore Roos- !evelt as standard bearer. He is now a properly labeled candidate for president and upon the influence of his personal popularity will depend whether or not he is the next lodger in the White House. It goes without saying that he is not as popular as he was three months ago. The fight at the republican convention and the withdrawal on the part of some of the strongest progressives there from active participation in any new party has had its effect and because no compromise was effected there, Mr. Roosevelt now has to stand severe crit- icism from many who regarded him most kindly at that time. He will make a strong campaign-- there is no doubt of that--and will car- ry others of the northern states just as he carried Kansas this week, but can he carry enough to secure election? Very likely he will defeat Mr. Taft but it does not look as though anything more would be accomplished than mak- ing certain the election of Woodrow Wilson. The Next President The next president of the United States is a currency reformer. Governor Wilson says: "the question of currency reform lies very near to the prosperity of the country. We suf- fer from crises because of our unscien- tific system of currency." Colonel Roosevelt says: "There must be a revision of our currency laws, because to leave them as they are means to incur liability of business dis- aster. ' ' President Taft says: "Banking and currency reform is necessary to the in- terests of all the people."

In the center of the standard base- ball, as used by the professional play- ers. there is a globe of compressed cork covered with rubber. This globe is about an Inch In diameter and around are wound a few layers of coarse twIne. It is then sent to the winding room, where machines first wind on thick four ply blue yarn. At frequent Intervals the ball is soaked in a c merit solution and put aside to dry. Many different workers have to do with the winding of the ball. Each workman tests it for size and weight before he passes it along. The ma- chines insure tight and even winding and there are different machines for different sizes of yarn. These machines are operated in secret in a locked room When the ball has been wound to the proper size with blue and white yarn and has been dipped in the solution, it wound finally with smaller yarn. Thus the firm. rough center is overlaid with finer and finer material until at last it is smooth and perfect, ready for the cover. The best horsehide obtainable is used for covers. The pieces are cut by hand and dampened and stretched. The ball is put Into clamps and the cover sewed on with cotton thread, which has a greater frictional strength than linen or silk. Each ball Is sewed by hand and then put into a machine that irons down the seam& The polishing is done by still another machine. Then. after beIng stamped and wrapped, the ball is ready for market. A ball weighs five ounces and is nine Inches in circumference. In the course of manufacture it is weighed and meas ured five Umes.--Harper's Weekly. NEW YORK'S FIRST CHURCH. And tim Earlle Religious $ervis on Manhattan Island. The first religious service on Man- lmttan inland was held in 162& This resulted in the organization of a church, the lervices of which were held in the upper story of a mill which ground the grain of the colonists. The first minister was Jonas Michaelius and the first elder Peter Mlnuit, direr tor general of New Netherland, The first church building on Manhat- tan Island was situated on Pearl street. between Whitehall and Broad streets. facing the East river. This structure was a poor, plain building of wood and constructed in 1633 by the West India company. Its congregation was presided over by Dominie Bogardus. the second clergyman of New Amster dam, and was regarded as a more fit ting place than the loft of the mill to public worship. William Kieth, director general of th, West India company, caused to be erected a church outside of Fort Am ate[dam, which contained three Ion narrow windows on each side. fitted with small panes of glass set In lead. on which were burned the coats o! arms of the chief parishioners. 'I'hl. building was erected in the meadow oi Mrs Dominie Drisius and fronted on a lane, now called Exchange place. In those days, however, it was known as "Garden alley." A large bowl of soil0 silver for bastismal services was made by the silver workers in Holland In the belfry was the bell which has been removed from the old church In the forL--Westchester County Maga sine. Mark Twaln's Question. Mark Twain when visiting Mel bourne was the guest of the mayor oa a picnic trip down the river Yarra. a stream renowned for its crookedness and for the odor from its banks. On account of the many turns in the river numerous signs reading "Dead Slow" are placed at the turnings to warn ship captains to slacken speed, and these attracted Twain's attention. Sniffing cautiously at the tainted breeze that came from the slimy banks, he turned to his host. "Mr. Mayor." he asked, "'what are these dead slows that smell so strong?"
