J SOME RAMBLING THOUGHTS.
K igei ness l" .o ! a' tin- oitlnatd tip
pcaranco of a gn.i: man is no real
compliment to Ins wink. Willingness
to take of his nie.-s.tge and live it is
moro to be praised. Ry way of illus
tration let mo cite Christianity. As
the centuries increase in number be
hind us, the vital strength of Chris
tianity seems (I do not write of creeds
but of deeds) to increase. And I doubt
not that tho world's workers, who have
learned from tho Great Worker, caro
Iofs and less for His personal appear
ance; since were we to behold Hun as
He was, like enough we should see but
little cause to admire Him. A man's
work is more than the man, and his
message more than his faeo. And wo
gaping ones who would run hither and
thither just to "see," advertiso that wo
as yet understand but little of what in
fluence really means. Like those who
gaze upon caged lions, aro we who
Bather to stare at famous thinkers wo
have our reward; wo am disappointed
ho lions and men, for they are out
of their proper sotting.
And those who, having aided the
thought of the day, straightway imi
tate the freaks of the museums, show
ing themselves at every public place
havo their reward also they nro seen,
their work is judged by their facial or
physical insignitieanco (for great

Tho ".silent uilluutik-c" what a world
of satisfaction theie is in tho idea! It
brings us all in as one in the onward
work of the world. The "silent influ
ence," soft as a snow llako, gent 0 as a
summer zephyr, despi.sod as an earth
worm, unheeded as a blade of grass, is
what is doing tho work of the world.
Mightier than monarehs is tho quiet
thought of the people, passing from
hamlet to hamlet and growing as it
passes; more enduring than mountains
are tho personal and national virtues
that are quietly and silcntlj taught
and livid by unknown men and wom
en; moro persistent than death are the
silent works done generation after
generation by the humble and unseen
done because they weie right to bo
done, and not bcoaiiM' they were to lje
either seen or piniscd of men.
Hiitnbloonesevoiywhere, tho "silent
inllucnce"and a knowledge of its gran
deur 111 till histoiy, all progress, all
morals-makes the humblest of us

and righteousness in life.
Purpose in life is like the sunshine
that comes over the hills to make tho
way cloar after a night of doubt and
wandering. 1 am not .surprised that
many people find existence altogether
too confusine and givo up in despair.
It is because they got into tho mnzo of
life and lose hold upon the one thread
that will guide thorn out into freedom,
that thread is purpose. Like the early
alchemists who always had one thing
lacking when they tried to transmute
metal, many of us aie seeking the phil
osophers stone '.hat shall turn to lino
gold the days and hours that are allot
ted to us. Failure follows f.tiltii'0, fail
ure lives witli us, failure nauseates us
becauso the one thing lacking if pur
pose. Good, sincere, honest purpose is
more to bo desired than great riches,
and stronger to sweep dilliculty out of
the way is It than muscle. Hut tho
possession of clear purposo does not
necessarily mean that all dilliculties
will dis ppitir. Sin'li me g mil fop us

An Insurance Suit
Under the above head the Nebraska
State Journal of last Tuesday says:
"Tho Imperial Insutanee company ami
the family ol W. S. Garber seems des
tined to have some difTercnees in court.
Gather was once ai rested on the
chatge of .sotting lire to miiihi pioperty
at Camp Sowatd, Coioiado, but was
acquitted. He sued the company for
?50,000 damages for false imprison
ment, claiming unit it was at lis lu
st nice that he was falsely at rested.
Mrs Garber has pending in thu dis
trict court a suit for. $3, 157 for the val
ue of her goods destroyed in the lire
her husband was accused of setting.
In this suit thu insurance eoiipany
yesterday tiled its answer, in which it
makes a number of charges that aro
likely to got it into more trouble. It
chin ged that the provisions of the
policy woro violated in that Mrs. Gar
ber did not stay in tho house, but that
it was turned into a miners boatding
camp, where no females or anyone
who know how to keop house was kept.
This added extra hazard, says tho
company, It says that the goods were
worth only $400, and that all that
were insured were not in tho house
when it burned. A confederacy is al
leged to have existed, the details of
which, or rather the alleged details,
are fully nud minutely set out in the
Kidney nr.d Bladder Troublos.
If you sulTcr from kidney, bladder or
urinary troubles, or from too frequent
or scanty I urine, Dr. Foniiers Kidney
