THE PARCELS POST An article recently published in a prominent paper is ysthathelp the mail order houses and destroy the business of the countrY merchants Probably the Parcels Post would help the mail order hpuses but it would not seriously injury the country dealer indeed it wquld prob benefittocompanies and the railroads are makingmillions of every year by carrying express at rates This money goes into the pockets of a few rich men like Rockefeller Harriman and Platt and gives them tremendous power to corrupt our legislators and public officers The establishment of the Parcels Post would diminish the amount of freight and probably reduce freight rates It would cut express rates in two and take away probably half or more of the busi ness the express companies now have in carrying small pack ages giving that work to the U S government It would make the dollar of the farmer and resident of small towns go from ten to twenty per cent farther than it does now All this is money out of the pockets of the millionaire and in the pockets oT the common peopleTfie country storekeeper gets much of his goods by ec press and more by frciht Who pays the freight and express Not the manufacturer nor the country merchant No bless you they charge it all up to you They dont cage whether express is high or low so long as you pay getthebuy more Then theyll get the benefit too Thats clear isnt it You have ten dollars to spend with your merchant If he pays two dollars to the railroad and express companies he really gets the profit on eight dollars worth of your trade If rates are reduced and he only pays one dollar to the express company he has nine dollars worth of your trade Is his business destroyed Not at that rate Tell your senators and representatives that you votingI nI111Iflat The

intensified ir her more than in an Englishman that makes her seem almost like a foreigner to us Our American women should not trj to ale this peculiar IJnglish intonation any mote than WI should attempt in this country to restore then it honor A general improvement of our speech as a part of out manners u certainly neecd but this will not bo achieved by the importation of pcculi nrtios which arc foreign to us Tho intelligent cultivated Americas woman speaks uncommonly well in my opinion This I say not us coin paring her with her British sister whoso speech is modeled on n duoronl standard and who therefore should not bo crijiciied by us in this mat ter The problem is to speak well as an American and not as an inmate of tho English There is a certain claa of our pcoplo who go to England and perhaps unconsciously fall into tho English peculiarity of intonation in thou speech This they retain on their return to this country with tho result that to us they appear guilty of affectation Fortunately this is rarely the individualityf adopt slangy oxprflestons phrase and diction but ns to enunciation in a way that to say tho least appears anything Jut I admirable to their elders That is where tho chief t otlr spoken English lies in tho carelessness off our young people nur thafis I wherE an educational movement may bo of groat uso Changes in the method of speaking come gradually as a result of environment and it is undoubtedly true that broader national contacts will- I lead to a greater uniformity of speech in tills country as well ns in Eng land The tendency to lingual carelessness among our young people is a phase of an existing laxity in manners Any improvement in tho lattpr so far as it dons not involve the inculcation of ailcatfttions is to bo heartily welcomed and should bo systematically undertaken by our educational institutions I Jrnl1trtt 1nue 1Erruliur Ability By ELLEN E MILLS Author and Member or 5oro I n A writer in a current magazine has this to soy

while Kone of Uio boys disputed the fact that oho was tbo prettiest thing on the campus Jack was lilting on tho library steps wondering how much longer It would take Marjory to Jot to the library stops Whore ho was waiting for her she having rounded tbo corner n half block away at least 15 minutes before Her progress was slow ind Uio crowd about her was Increasing In slzo and delight Ho wanted to bo with liar alone or ho would have add ed himself to tho gathering Ho was scheming a means to relieve himself from a self lmpnsod dilemma of which ho was ono horn and Marjory the otherShe had started It three years before at a reception where they had j met Ho was a freshman and silo a sophomore then and she had opened tho conversation by telling him lu Uio patronizing lone sophomores use to ward freshmen that she had decided to matte use of her sophomore prerog ative and place him on liar airing Ho being very bold nnd saucy for a freshman had accepted the gage by walltoneither had lost any opportunity of as suring the other of his undying affec tion In many varied and t amusing waysNow ho wanted seriously to tell her of his lovo for her but ho had told her of It so often In fun that ho couldnt quite see any way of making her take his declaration as being made seriously In earnest and not made seriously In fun A penny for your thoughts Jack she said brightly when at sho reached him- Thinking about you Marjory he repliedYou dont say and what were you thinking about 1II0T Refuse to bo Interviewed Why Jack she said In a tono of mock Injury do you mean to toll me after

well beaton path they turned their backs to Iho college buildings and strolled leisurely along following closely the edge of tho high blufflike bank ot tho river Neither spoke for a time As they went along ho began to wonder what tho outcome of It all would be Tho moro he thought the weaker his resolution becamethere was Marjory tho prettiest and most perfect girt in the world and on the other hand hero was ho Just an ordinary average sort of a fellow When ho looked back and tried to analyze her conduct toward him and towards others ho could not see that she had treated him any different than air of tho others Indeed when It nil coma back to him with a rush he wondered at his selfconceit in think lag that Marjory of nil girls would find anything In him to love Still ha thought ho wouldnt have had things other than they had been those last three years while they had boqn playing their little Xarco for he fcl that only circumstances could have brought thorn together as they hind been So ho blessed tho lucky day of tbo start though he cowered before a doubtful finish At last they passed below tbe laat city bridge and wore alone by tho river away from all tho nolso and ac

his eyes upon tiers and thoy so spoke In anticipation of his words that sho Instinctively felt what ho was about to say and a Blow flush crept up over her cheeks and her eyes dropped from hU Ho noticed It and It eavo him an Inexplicable thrill of strength to soy I was wondering whether you loved mo Marjory dear 1 was wondering whether 1 could come back hero again next year and be happy with

for myself It looks better than railroading The express people replied that Gould could organize all tho coanpaII nice ho wanted to They was all bluff but things that came to their attention soon weakened their faith in this idea Gould was going around among his associates talking up the express company scheme of ficials of other roads were told that a now company would be In the field to bid for their business and the papers began to talk about Uio new Gould express company Tho express officials however saw nono of Goulds money going into the ontcrp lno and stood pat Presently It was

SCHOOL I The Forgotten Boy Whom We Now Need One of ihe biggest nnd stublwrnest facts that face us in our prosper rrilyis the lack of skilled workmen We are suddenly waking up to it that with all our educational machinery there is no part of it except n few schools and the bare beginnings of work in a very few publi- oschootsthattrains theyouug directly to earn their livings by the trades There is only one way out of thIs nbsunl posItion A part of the publie school machinery must be adaptodjto tradetrainingnnd enough of it to put a free tradeschool within the reach of every boy and girl who wants it Educationalists may discuss this theory nnd that till the crack of doom Thisjis n condition and not a theory and the people had justasw ell begin to make this change no matter what theory it violates If teaching the trades be not education so much the worse for education When we have to import carpenters and paperhangers and masons nnd the like and when very very few American boys have a chanco to learn these trades and when we maintain public schools to teach boys it is time to stop the foolishness of discussion and to como to the common souse of tnakingjthe schools do what is needed Most of the education that we offer to those who must become wage I earners not only foils to fit them for their work but tends to jnako them dissatisfied with it Our high schools are designed to help business and professional menthe Mass which needs help least We learnetTlong ago that a college which was meant chiefly to train preachers would not give us goodengineers and we have been building engineer schools ever since We are now just findingout that a high school which is meant mainly to prepare boys for college does not helplboys who are going to be carpenters Yet the apprenticeshipCsystem except in some highly organizedshopsno longer meets the of modern conditions Even immigration has not supplied the deficiency We need more skilled workmen than we have any means of getting Private trade schools can never bo numerous enough to reach the mass of the working people They can hardly do more than point tho way We must have public schools that will prepare carpenters to build as well as prepare others for tho professionsschools in Which young men and young women may get a training adapted tothe work which they intend to doTho Worlds Work ITHE FARMIi Expansion In the Farmer and the Farmer in Expansion Agricultural SchoolsProf William M Beardshear president Iowa State College of Agriculture and Mechanic Arts in speaking on the subject of expansion in the farmer and the farmer in expansion said in substance Science with practice in farming is recent not only in this country but in tho world The British National Board of Agriculture was not establisheduntil 1703 under the wise influence of William Pitt the boy premier The first three agricultural schools in the worlds history sit uated in Germany and Switzerland were founded in 1700 just n hundred I t years ago In this count agricultural education has its chief rise with the landgrant Yet the growth of these institutions jas been most remarkable j The average farmer is liable to look at the college professor with his Science as a kind ofa strange animal coming down or rising up out of some mysterious region and with it all impractical Some of the professors have made mistakes on tho other side and have kept too great a distance from the practical needs of tho farm furrows They have not had their hearts enough in the work to make it plain and simple to the farmer of average intelligence FarmingDr Jordan of the NeV York Experiment Sta tion at Geneva employs a man to simplify the bulletins sent out by the various stations of the country so as to strip them of the unnecessary technicalities and make them understandable to tho average population of the country IfeThis is not peculiar to higher learning in agriculture It is true in the development of all lines of new thought But on tho other hand too many farmers have talked too much about book farming and book learning and gone on in their old ways content to continue with their backs to the light These farmers Lave made the mistake of considering a few wellmeaning yet stilted books writers and professors as excuses for exclu ding information and help from the realms of science The college and the farm happily now understand each other better Science is merely exact knowledge and sound sense It is akin lo the practical experiences of the intelligent man on his farm Science is experience of the highest value In the most progressive portions of our country through the growth of these recent years there are but few ga s left between the college and r tho farmBFrom the US Dept of Agriculture

Dismissed Other News Loulsvlllo Ky Feb 4Judge Wal ter Evans In the federal court over ruled the demurrer ot the Loulsvlllo dk Nashville Railroad company to the equity petition filed by Erasmus Land Annie E Mottloy In which tho latter sought to enforce a contract by which the railroad company agreed to issue annual passes to each of the plaintiffs during their life time Tho court says that the net of Juno 29 1908 known as the railroad rate bill under which tho railroad company declined to Issue the passes as agreed Jn January 1907 should be construed precisely as If in Its general language there was an express exception ex eluding from Its operation tho com plainants contract In no other way can the vested contract rights of the complainants bo preserved The gen eral tenor of the opinion is to tho effect that congress did not intend to annul any previously made contract founded upon good consideration Tho court says further that tho passes issued to tho Mottleys while called free passes wore not so any more than a ticket bought and paid for The demurrer of the railroad com pany which was argued by Coloner Henry L Stone was bated on the re bate law which prohibits the issuing of passes tho railroad taking tho post lion that this law ended their contract with the Mottloys Mutual Lifes Petition DUmlnad Frankfort Ky Feb 2Judge Rob ert Stout of the state clrcujt court

Now llonorublo Members of the A Z this scene is altogether too com mon and were not such n bunch of despicable scoundrels and arrant knaves you would cry out against this evil but No your timid and selfish spirits desire to preserve wnr In tho family at tho expense of your sense and gratitude I scorn such a policy gentlemen And how a body of such distinguished young men can be such a motley array of flathead ed louts is beyond my explanations Why dots such a condition exist T- It is because you have too little uil ent brains or ambition to mike a kick ur are too popeyed to notice such a state of affairs Another theory is that you pattern after that arrange ment of scamps called by the name of knockers They get unto them selves books and papers la order that they may read them nnd miss tho wlrdorn und kerning which pro ceeds from the platform on Monday morning Ah yes they can scold about Chapel lUst enough when the Chapel bell is toiling for silence but let some one suggest that the time used in the extra kicks would be more efficient spent la using and appreciating their blMdngs that per son would be thrown out of tho com munity ae a heretic They moot wise and excellent growkrs prefer to cut recitations and feel abused when they are flunked Now U you gen tlemen or miserable sneaks spent onefourth of the energy in knock- Ing in cracking up the advantages of Berea those conditions would bng ago have been modified or abolished It Is not my purpose this evening to speak of the ways and moans of relief but It you dlatressd looking apes and apprentice orators cure

and asks What is left of your conscience Whether such a state of affairs stall continue without a word of protest from you without tJoint appeal that will fill tho air with curses upon the abominable policy that permits us to shut our eyes to the sapid Improve meats forces us to jump to absurd conclusions only to land In suspi cons tInt bury us In a flea of disloyalty that causes us to wildly bal
