   Acton Concord Enterprise (Newspaper) - March 22, 1889, Acton, Massachusetts                                 THE ENTERPRISE  ■  :  SttttnM ai stoood oIam mMnf« ~~ Vridky, Maroh 32, 1880~  The plum» am all going at the Whit« Houm and we haven't been offered A tut«..  It I» a fact that the bells in the Prot-eatont churchea wore rung on St. Pat-rlok'a day, (hit year.  Members of the Legislature have been Invited to wait on the Governor the 27th lust. Tho ladies are included In the invltntiori.  Mrs. Harrison "trips the light fantastic," but tho Ocneral never learned the art, so Mr. Morton and Mrs. Harrison will lend the dance in the centennial quadrille.  When offlce»seckiiig constituents begin to register their letters then the congressmen and senators groan thorc-at. Senator Quay receipted for fifty one day hut week. -  Mr. Wnnninnker is said to use $150 worth of postage stamps a day at his big store. A iiuin thut patronizes the government on such a liberul scale ought to be Postmaster General.  The friend« of constitutional prohibition are making a red hot fight for tlicir causc, and the state is stumped front one end to the other. From two to three hundred spcakt-rs are endeavoring to eulighten the people upon tlits "/rent moral question."  Strength of Char&oter.  Sirenstli of character consists of two things— power of will and power of self restraint It requires two things, therefore for its existence—strniig feelings and strong powers of mind to control tho»e feelings. Here is where we sometimes make a great mistake; we mistake strong feelings for strong character. A man who bears all before him, before whose frown domestics tremble and bursts of fiuy make tbe childien of i lie household quake because he has his will obeyed, and his own way in all tb>ngs, he is called a strong man, but the facts are lie ia a vety weak man. It is his passions that are strong and he that is masteied by them is a weak man.  You must measure the strength of a man by the power of the feeling lie subdues liim. And hence composure is very often the highest re.»ult of real strength. Did you ever see a man rtceive a flagrant insult, and only grow a little pale, and then reply quietly? That is a man spiritually strong. Or did you ever see a man in anguish stand as if carved out of solid rock, mastering himself? That is strength. He who, with strong passions, lemains chaste; he who, keenly sensitive, with many powers of indignation in liim, can be, provoked and yet restrain himself and forgive—these are the strong men, the spiritual heroes.

A valued correspondent whose wishes we greatly respect, asks us to publish a circular headed "Prohibition in Rli xle Island not a failure." If we were to publish all the ciiculars that are tioodiim the state ou this subject at the present time there would be no room lor anything else in our papers.
