I.lttlo Thliign ot I.Ue.
Why Is it that wo so easily forget
that tho little things in life aro what
make it easy or hard? A few plonsant
words, a warm hand-clasp, a cordial
letter are simple tilings, but they ure
mighty in their influence on tho lives
of those about lis, adding a ray of hope
to many disconsolate hearts, giving
courage to disappointed, weary ones,
and helping at tho same time to make
our own lives sweeter. Fow people
realize how much tho little attentions
of every-day life mean to their associ
ates in thu home, society and the place
of business. It is generally a lack of
consideration that makes one forget
the tiny pleasantries; but lack of con
sideration is really ono form of selfish
ness, and selfishness is not a desirable
quality. Remember that the little
things in life, cither good or bad, count
for moro with those we love than we
ever know, und we should be watchful
of our actions and ot our words.

and Wisconsin, the percentages rang
ing from 28 in Michigan to 4a In Ver
mont. Massachusetts, New York,

CA111.S11A.U, Aug-. 10 "The rdlvor
question will never be dropbed in
America until free coinage is passed,"
said Senator Georgo G. Vest of Mis
souri, hero to-day, replying to ques
tions put to him by a representative of
tho press.
In regard to the prospects of an in
ternational monetary conference Sena
tor Vest remarked: "It is generally
conceded that tho other powers aro
awaking tho notion of England, and
from all accounts England will not
alter tho gold standard. A prominent
English olllcial was hero recently, a
gentleman who had tho confidence of
the new ministry, and he had several
long conferences on the subject with
Mr. John Wanamakcr. He sai 1, 'Rest
assured that Englnnd will not alter tho
gold standard.'"
Senator Vest is greatly improved in
