close There are still over a hundred confirmatory witnesses to be examined but probably nothing more will be so exciting as what has passed The defence sprung its great sensation this week In tho promise to pro duce the Martin rifle with which Goe bel was killed This it is said was given soon alter tho shooting to one Albert Helton now ot Knox County but then a resident ot Harlan Why ha kept it secret so long has not yet been explained but all tho details of tho long hunt for the gun have been told Youtsoy whoso testimony bad not been finished when Tho Citizen went to press last week

TWO KINDS OF CHRISTMAS Christmas will be here before you get your next CitizJn What kind ofa Christmas will it be in your neighborhoodChristmas has always been a time for good feeling and for happiness It is a day on which everyman who believes in Christ ought to rejoice for no day can mean more religiously and the religion of Christ is a happy one But too many men who have no religion to make them happy look for excitement in a bottle There are iso many of that kind that often these days when a man gets drunk and shoots at women and children or makes a of himself he says he has been havin a Christmas or Could there be any worse insult to the real meaning of the day or Him whose birth we celebrate thingsAlmostkinds of doing Many schools are afraid to have- Christmas trees because

Democratic Convention to Meet In Denver July 7 The political sensation of the week has been the Presidents second announcement that ho would not run for President again It should not have surprised any one but certain little politicians had been trying to con vince people that he did not mean It when he said It and so used this as a cover for their schemes for some one else So tho President did well to toll the truth and he has stopped all kinds of schemes that were under wayThis has left tho field clear for other men and no one of them seems far enough ahead to be sure of It Mr Taft stands the best chance but Sen ator Foraker who has always worked for the corporations hates tho presi dent for punishing them and has worked as hard as he could against Taft and may keep him from getting tho whole Ohio delegation That would probably beat him Foraker of course cannot get tho place unless the party goes Insane but ho still acts as If he thought he was In the race Coy Hughes of New York who did such fine work for the people In tho insur anco investigations is another of tho candidates who is well to tho front and stands a pretty good show but some of the things ho has been doing have not turned out well and ho is losing strength now Other candi dates are Knox LaFollette and Speak er Cannon It now seems likely that there will bo a long hard fights In the convention and it is possible that some man not yet mentioned may be chosenThe Democratic National Committee has chosen Denver as the place for the National convention which will be on July 7 or after tho Republican one Denver offered 100000 for tho conven tion which will leave about 80000to start tho campaign fund with There has been somo criticism of this but really every one knows that money Is needed to run a campaign and there can bo no more harmless way of get ting it- Gov Willson has begun his work well by sending troops to Hopklnsvlll as is told elsewhere In Tho Citizen and in other ways the Republicans have shown their intention ot doing their work in tho best possible way Tho members of the assembly met in a caucus and decided to stand togeth er on all Important matters They wll work for three things A blpartl san board to control the penal and charitable institutions of the State a redistricting bill which will arrange the legislative districts ot Kentucky so as to make them fairer to the Re r publicans and amendment to the pre sent election laws Major P P Johnston of Lexington was appointed Adjutant General by Gov Willson A T Slier was elected chairman of the Railroad Commission There has been considerable fuss over the appointment of C M Barnett as Fire Marshall Sanley Mllward ot Lexington declares that Auditor promised him tho place In return for his support in tho nominating conven lion Mr James denies It It Is too bad that what may bo the beginning of one of tho best times in Kentucky history should be spoiled by such a quarrel which makes It look as if all that the men wanted was to get their hands on the jobs just like the Democrats that the people have thrown out That kind of performance will not help the Republican party to get elected again The UpToDate STORE I wish to call the attention ot the people of Berea and Madison County and also of adjoining counties to tho fact that It will pay them to stop in or If they have to to drive in look at

LOGSDONS MONEY TALKS theMoney moneyinthepeuple understandingthat of It at any time Tho people of Madison Jackspn and Rockcastle counties have left moro i than a hundred and fifty thousand IleresBank 1 ybelongs I ferent people It Is their money deposited In the bank for safekeeping and the bank must pay It back to them wheneverthey call for It But the bank can not keep on hand I all the time In actual cash all tho money that people have left with It for safekeeping It would not bo a prudent nor a safe thing to do for so much money would be too rich a prize for robbers and bandits And It would cost tho bank a great deal to take care of so much money If the bank kept every dollar of tho peoples money on hand In real gold and silver all the time they would have toput it In a strong box In the vault and hIre men with guns to stand watch over It But to do all this would cost a great deal of money and If the bank did It they would have to charge the depositors for the expense of taking care of their money But tho banks of the country Lave found from experience that only a few people are likely to want a part of their money at any one time Some of them want only a little of It occas ionally and as a rule one set of peopy will put Into tho bank every day Just I about tho same amount that another set of people will want to draw out abouttIve l the people leave with It and about ten thatIsfor safekeeping with strong banks in large cltjes like New York Cincinnati getthistime by sending for it And In order to pay for the expense sof taking care of tho peoples money and running the bank the remainder of tho peoples money varying from onehalf to threefourths of all that 13 left with It for safekeeping Is loaned lout on short time notes to other peo ple who can furnish good In making these loans the securityfalways remember that it Is other pea ples money they are handling and they take nothing but the very best security such as first mortgages onI I good real estate or the personal en dorsements of two or three good men who can afford to pay the note It the man who borrows should be unable 1ito do so And the money Is really safer loaned out in this way than it would be In the banks strong box for it is a great deal harder for a thief to steal and run away with a farm than It is for him to break open a bank safe and steal the money that is in it And al most all of tho loans that the bank makes aro for a very short time like t three or six months so that it the people want their money the bank can 1 collect tho notes and pay It back to themAnd h if the directors should mako a mistake and loan money to somo oneIwho can not pay It back the depoSe hors can not loso anything for there r Is tho banks capital of fifty thousand dollars and its surplus of ten thous 1 and more of its own money which stands between the people and any loss Then toothero fcj the double lia bility of the stockholders which puts fifty thousand dollars more or 110000 In all between the people and Jho loss of a single penny This is the protec tion which tho law gives to people who put their money In a bank for sato keeping Tho bank must lose all of its own money before any depositor can lose anything at all So this Is what tho bank does with tho peoples money Part of It they keep In actual cash in their cwn strong box in tho bank Another part they keep in actual cash deposited in banks In other places like Louisville Cincln natl and New York subject to their call at any minute And the rest of tho peoples money is loaned out to their own neighbors on short time notes secured by the very best se curityAnd this Is why every bank that is honestly managed by directors who are good business men Is safe The larger the banks capital and the better the men who manage the banks i affairs the safer the 1ans f hrv4 i erea lank t Trust Company t CHAPTER XVII Continued If you were asking that service of Ernest Haddon it Is possible that ho might do It But it you aro asking Ernest Haddoa to stoop to dishonor to masquerade In a character to which be has no right Ernest Haddon will still do that serviceWe faced each other Our eyes mot In defiance Will beat against will an aggressive purpose against stubborn resistance Again I saw those beautiful lips curve In a cruel smile the eyes burn with a baneful lightWas she BO confident of her prey Did she think that I should fall so easy a victim to her basilisk smile If so she erred woefully Her beauty left me absolutely unmoved Rather It repelled The savage nature of the tigress showed too plainly In that Instant nut at least you will listen to my plant Yes I replied slowly gazing thoughtfully at the flickering logs I will listen to your plan Like your pelf I have gone too far to retreat nut remember when you have told mo all the armed truce may bo fol owed by open warfare Do you always glvo warning to your victims beforo you trap them she demanded both contemptuous and curious When I am a guest at their houses

sneered Starva Ho comes Again to ask foolish questions But I answer him yes I answer him this time For tonight at least we shall have peace Not without trepidation I thought of the shuffling feet and tho shout Dr Gtnrva when crossed would not be nlco in surmounting an obstacle Either ho thought mo beneath con tempt or a great fool I could have wished that I were armed in this Cas tie of Happiness A few hours ago the atmosphere of tho Middle Ages had clung to It and had enchanted me nut if Its Inmates resorted to the violent methods of that period I might ho less fascinated- Dr Slarva again seated himself at his instrument Madame de Varnler accompanied him as if nothing un usual had happened I looked thoughtfully at this danger ous couple The morrow promised much The three of us were at cross purposes Each was playing his des perato game Which of us was to conquer It was not long beforo the little con cert came to an end Tho enthusiasm of Dr Starva was not proof against the emotions of tho past hour Can dies wero rung for I bade them both a quiet good night and followed the lackey who preceded me to my chamber I welcomed tho hours of sleep Tomorrow my nerves would need to be steady But the surprises of the day wore to bo followed by still another On my pillow was a folded piece of paper It was a message I could not doubt that But when I had read It X was completely mystified in two particulars Who had placed the message on my pillowDId the sender really believe that I wax Sir Mortimer 1 If Sir Mortimer Brett win call at the Grand hotel tomorrow at tqn for Yr Robinson Locke Sir Mortimer will ecetenows of importance That WHS the message I CHAPTER XVIII The Mysterious Signal So t Locket as well as Forbes had traced us to Alterhotfen Was their arrival here so soon after ourselves merely a coinpidcnce Or could they have traveled together Locke had certainly given me to understand that fco had never seen Sir Mortimer or his Wolher and sister Nor had I reason to qiippoeo that he knew the kings agoileavingLucernesot know them even nowwhat could fetve brought Locke hither Ono of three things might have hap pencd 1 Locke may havo been keeping a vlg llant watch ta the movements of the Conn toss Sarahoff Captain Forbes might have traced us hero yesterday and have joined forces with Locke i Or Locke may have been watching mo rather than Madame do Varnfer and have posted after me rather than after herself and her companion i It required little imagination to rea won out the affair J Two days ago he bad seen me con jveralng on apparently intimate terms with the tea SarahoJT a noto A rlous adventuress He came to my hotel to warn me against her I had received his warnings lightly enough That very evening I dined with the woman I took the boat for Vltznau it not in her company In tho company of Dr Starva whom he must havo often seen with her at Lucerene The knowledge of these facts would bring him to the scene at Vltznau And then The most startling dis coveries might be his Say that ho had actually traced me as far as Vltznau lie would have made Inquiries yesterday for Ernest Haddon From whom else could he make these inquiries but the con cierge And ho would learn what The mysterious secret that It was not really Ernest Haridon who had come to tho hotel but Sir Mortimer Brett passing under the name of Ernest Haddon Yes the concierge would tell him the truth according to his lights An old newspaper man like Locke would be satisfied with no vaguo evasions It Locke then had made certain that I had entered tho hotel the even ing before that I had occupied the suite of Sir Mortimer Brett the truth would flash on him He would then be forced to one or two conclusions either that I was a great fool to be so guileless a victim or that I was a Vaguely Chateau much more cunning rogue than he had thoughtBut note I had found so strangely on my pillow had given no inkling of his suspicions it ho had any That was to be expected If Sir Mortimer or rather myself failed to keep the appointment he would draw his own conclusions And having drawn them what would be his course of action Ho would storm the chateau for the truth If as seemed most likely he had joined forces with Captain Forbes ho would realize the need of Immedi actionWhat interviews between myself Madame do Varnier Locke and Forbes the day promised to be exciting There might I thought with Infinite dread bo yet another Inter view For if Forbes and Locke had succeeded in tracing us to Alter offon why v1 ould not Brett and her motherI at my watch I had slept soundly lulled to sleep by the temptu pus Itttlo stream below It was now oclock The sun was shining brightly into my room I could seethe mountains rosyhued in the morn ing light My door was rapped gently then pushed open The who had ushered me to chamber entered with coffee There was none so likely to havo brought the note as he 1 was tempted to test the suspicion It might be convenient to avail myself of his services if my suspicion were true But I decided to make no allusion to It For tho present I had no need of the man If tie were ignorant of the existence of the note I should risk much by rushing him the wiser I am anxloua to see Madame do Vernier I said raising myself on my elbow to pour ont my coffee Is she up yetT 1 Madam neverrlses until after her second breakfast rephed the man But Dr Starva has asked me to say that ho is at your Excellencys dls posalHo Is very good I yawnfcd and dismissed him Now that Madame dt Varnier was not to bo seen for the present I wished I might have slept longer It was too late to keep tho doubtful appointment with Locke even bad I wished But I did not wish to keep It First of all must come Madame do Varnlers story Afterwards events must shape their course as they would But It was Impossible to sleep again the glare of the light was unendurable Tho noise of tho river Aaro seemed to rise in a steady crescendo I dressed leisurely for I was deter mined not to leave the chateau until I had seen Madame do Varnier And yet 1 had no desire for the company of Dr Starva I looked about for a book or magazmo to beguile the hours be fore luncheon Half a dozen awaited my perusal most of them yellow backed French novels Onb book however was In English The Foreign Ofllco List and Diplomatic and Consular Handbook I read curiously T turned to Sir Morti mer Brett Sir Mortimer Brett KGMO CB MA All Souls College Oxford 1S79 Competitive examination and clerk of F O May 31 1880 3d Sec Mad 1883 Precis Writer to tho lato

Allowance for Turkish granted Consul General 1902I read the list of Sir Mortimers honors with a strange catching of the breath life progress in his profession had been extraordinary That ho was a zealous and ambitious diplomat was proven by the one tact that twice his I She Looked About Then Toward the Walls and Helena ten servant my and salary had been increased because he had mastered two of the most dlfflcul languages In the world That fact also proved that ho owed his promotion not so much to Influence at Court as to his own determination Ho was a student as well as a diplomatist It gave me a distinct shock that such n man should be so weak as to succumb to the beauty of a clover adventuress Again I read at random Tho flag to be used by His Maj eatys Diplomatic Servants whether on shore or embarked on boats or other vessels is the Union with the Royal Arms in the center thereof sur rounded by a green garland My eyes skipped down the page The uniform of the consul general was fully described The cocked hat was to be without bIndIngthe fan or back part eleven inches the cockade plain bulllon gold tassels edging of black ostrich feather I skipped that too I was not interested In millinery But presently my eye wandered to this paragraph I began to read it not without uneasiness Official Act of Parliament to prevent a Disclosure of Documents and Information Any

Ing with Ills Majestys Diplomatic Servants In their official business either by the Giving of false informa tlon tho assuming of any of their pro rogatives or rights I have never learned tho awful fate of a person guilty of those mjsdempan ors The book slipped from my hand Above tho clamor of the stream below 1 had heard a faint shout Twice it was repeated Alarmed I wont to the window and looked dowa At first I thought some oaa Ti MnInto the river But tho shout had not come from below I could be sure ci this because on the opposite side of tho Aaro was a narrow esplanade Benches were placed at Intervals and there wore beds of flowers to break tho monotony of tho grarsl walk The esplanado was deserted but for one person a woman nnd she was seated her parasol shielding her frog the sus and from my vrow Again I heard tho shout and still again I llsned breathless But the mysterious cry was no longer re pcatcd Puzzled I stoodat tho window lean- Ing far out but I could discover sign ot no person at such of the windows as T could command My glance fell Idly to the woman sunning herself on tho opposite bank And as I looked I tiny shaft of light arrested my atten tlon It was scarcely larger than my hand but it seemed endowed with elfish In tolhgcncc For It moved it danced And always In tho direction of tbi woman with the parasol Now It crawled slowly along the graveled walk In a direct line from the river bank toward her Now It burned a shining mark motionless Then it darted about In circles and always close to tho woman at It to en gage her attention A minute five mfnutos pasted whllo I watched the eccentric gyrations of this oxtraordl foully Intelligent shaft of light Over and over Its antics wore repeated Tho womans parasol was tilted care lossly back for a moment The nap row beam of light seized Its oppor tunlty It played fantastically on the dress of tho woman Now at last the had seen It It flashed upward toward her face She looked about vaguely then toward the chateau wall Now I had seen her face It was Helena Brett I struck my forehead impatient at my stupidity It was Captain Forbes who had shouted Ho had seen Helens Brett ho bad vainly attempted to make her hear But the roarloS river had drowned his cry That I had heard it proved that ho was nearer to me than to her Yes In tbls chateau and a prisoner lie was signaling that fact to her Every schoolboy knows the trick The reflection of the suns rays on n mIr ror will carry a tolerable dUtaoc But now that ho had attracted her attention would she look up and see him If by chanco that were poititlc would sho understand Fascinated I saw the little bNUD el light toll Its story eloquently and frt gcnlously CHAPTER XIX The Startling Message She had looked up only to be buns ed by tho dancing flame She hold her hands before her eyes Tho flame per siatontly annoyed her Sho moved from her scat It pursued her Again she looked up and oven from this height I could see that she was frowning In her anger and annoyance She seated herself at another borsch But she could not shako off her tormentor It no longer beat on her face and person It moved ateadly toward her then traveled along the path of tho promenade trespassed Into the garden of a cottage shot by tho cottage Itself halted at a huge woolen signboard on which was Inscribed a long advertisement In French proclaiming the exalted merits of a Swiss chocolateIt tremulously across the signboard It paused at a capital letter I Helena had watched it curiously un tit it disappeared into the garden Then she had lost interest In Its move ments and had once more scanned anxiously the chateau opposite Patiently and persistently the little f beam of light repeated Its antics Again it moved swiftly this time to Ufo signboard And now sho turned In her seat and watched It until It again paused at the letter I Twice the mirror was flashed on the billboard twice It paced at the lette L It disappeared to reappear at

less opportunity for musicians in this country than ill other countries If under the term musician we understand both the student and the practicing musician the word opportunity may refer to tho studyof music to the hearing of music and to earning a livelihood by the practice of music As fo the study of music The teachers in this country are as good as the teachers abroad We assert this with cons fidence The mechanism of playing an instrument is the same here as it is in Europe and men of the highest training with every possible inducement to do only their best have for years been busy in imparting their knowledge and skill to our youth That not more of the result is seen by the individual local observer is due to the fact that the pupils of a truly reputable teacher coming front all quarters scatter after instruction to those remote places from which they originally came and there in the stress of existence fail to reach tho ripest development or remain as do hundreds of line talents abroad there local celebrities It should ever be remembered in this connection that it is given to only a rare few to shine as world players Our observation is to the effect that teachers in America are more conscientious than those abroad At least the inclination to fleece a scholar because he is an American n rich foreigner is here reduced to a minimum Moreover n talented boy in n provincial town abroad having exhausted the nsonrees of a local teacher strives no matter how excellent the teacher may bo to finish his studies in Icipsic Berlin Prague or some other greet center Here ho can enjoy the best things of his art This same condition obtains in our country It would seem as if opportunities in this respect to Mudv were about equal As to hearing music Our largest cities furnish orchestral chamber and virtuoso concocts hi correspond with thoso of the greatest centers abroad As to earning a livelihood Financially the musician dopands upou lessongiving We believe we are safe in assorting that those who earn the most in the profusion year in year out art those that teed Find the performer who lives by performing alone avid you find the man who belongs to the small minority in the profusion Men subsist on theater earnings alone on the dance business alone some very few on solo playing But when one takes the profession as a whole it is tho teachers who form the overwhelming majority Pianists vocalists organists they nil teach In our large centers the number of youth now engaged in the study of music in all its forms runs high into the thousands Every house hart its piano or jts violin Excluding England of which we know little if one compares the earnings in Franco and Germany with thoso in our own land the American teacher earns more lives better and is housed letter than his European brother Comparison of theater wages today in Germany with theater wages in America reveals the fact that the average American orchestral player gets more return than his German brother for his services while the lOSt of living is pretty much the same From this state of affairs has arisen the cry of orchestral players to be heard all over Germany problem of

medical educational and sociological bids fair to be come an object of perma I cent interest Perhaps it is well that society using this term in the widest sense should concern itself with the problems of tho unfit if only for the reason that they very intimately concern the welfare of the world at large That the degenerate represents a very real presence in our midst is a statement that admits of no cavil or contention Every center of population big or small alike produces a proportion of unfit units This result is ob viously inevitable when tho course of human evolution is regarded for no exception is justified which assumes that all born will be born wine stealthy and perfect Roughly regarded there are two main lines oh which the question how to stem degeneracy is or can be debated Of theec plainly stated the first plan of treatment jsjfseIr into the phrase Stop the supply It would go straight to the source and origin of degeneracy and its propagation und would in so far as possible prohibit legally and socially the reproduction of the unfit The second mode of dealing with the evil may be described as purely ameliorative It seeks to develop and to train the degenerate into better ways of life It demands for rom the right to live and it charges society with the duty of reforming its unfit units Confessedly this second plan JUtS set before itu pro gramme of enormous extentso enormous in factt that even hopeful people cheery optimists may well stand aghast when they come face to face with the state of the particular Augean Stable they propose to cleanse Again those who look on the degenerate us a possible subject- for reformation often seem to forget that there is a constant ttad fresh supply of unfit units being thrown on the world each day that dawns and that to neglect to take care of this supply is much the same thing as endeavoring to fill the proverbial barrel ut the bunghole while the tap is turned on- Glaerly if tlieru is to be any hope of seeing the numbers of the degenerate brought within limits which shall render their treatment at all practicable there mast be some heck or other devised whichshall limitI will not say prevent becafise that would bo an impossibility the propagation of the physical and mental wastrels that cost the country millions each year for their maintenance and this without very much return being visible in the way of their betterment r have not yet met with any persons who have considered this matter seriously and who do not agree that the true and drastic remedy is that of seeking to limn

being made to smart by an effective application of tilltcat are probably the only persons who would enjoy the liberty they have today to multiply us they will and to send forth into the world the

not practical DUllness men alto make tho samo criticism They claim that when they employ a student from tho public schools they find him lacking In tho knowledge of tho oommon thlnis of life He may be well enough versed In tdxt book mutters rules and defin itions and theoretical Ideas but his knowledge Is not practical Ho has not grasped his subjects In such a way as to make use of them in hlsll workSuch criticism Is frequently Young people cannot bo expected to have a complete stock of practical wlidom until thoy have had an opportunity to acquire It by experience Yet there Is no doubt reason for the com plaint We as teachers are not always as careful as wo should be to keep our Instruction In line with every day duties It Is wise to consider all well mount criticisms and profit by them Removed as we are from the great business world with our profes slonal duties there Is doubtless dan ger of our becoming too theoretical The purpose of this chapter is to show how to make tho work of tho school of practical use to the pupils In their present and future dally life We will consider the branches separately 1 READING We learn to rood In order that we may read If wo learn to read and make no use of our accomplishment It will profit us little We live In a rending age By means of the newspapers we keep in touch with the principal happenings of the world and learn something of the pets ple who are in the public eye Dy means of magazines and books we get the beet thoughts of tho boat thinkers and writers Without these means we should be extremely limited in know ledge of events and Ideas Those who cannot or who do not read lose a very great part of what is essential to a happy and useful life It Is Important that the reading habit be acquired early The longer It Is put off after school ago is reached the more difficult it will be As soon as children have learned to read read fly they should be supplied with read- Ing matter suitable to their under standing To this end there should be In every district school a small li bras of juvenile books These should be chosen with a view to their charm as well as to their knowledge and mural teaching otherwise tho end sought will be frustrated in the begin ning If the thought Is heavy or the matter dull the children will give it up In disgust Much care should be taken in making the selections The safest course Is to seek the advice of an experienced librarian or teacher When the books have been obtained the teacher should see that they are distributed wisely and a record kept 01 the name of each student and of the book he has drawn Then he should keep track of the reading by asking questions each day or at appointed times It will be much better If the teacher has read the books be fore they are given out as he will be able to discuss them with so much greater Intelligence Discussion of books or articles adds very much to the delight as well as to the profit of the reader and others hearing It and- Continued NeJ NEWS OF THE WEEK Continued from Pint rae 125000 They point out that many a little one will not have any Christ mas unless money Is sent from out side The weeks weather has been dis agreeable In this part of the country but In other parts there have been heavy storms causing loss of life I Along the Atlantic Coast there have been many wrecks of small vessels and the larger ones have been In great danger One big sailing vessel was lost with fifteen of her crew and along the coast of England forty lives were lost Heavy snows In time west almost stopped the running of the trains and all over the country telegraph lines went down A mans life was almost lost In Ohio over a two cent stamp John Soley was about to be executed at t Columbus when It was found that papers commuting his sentence had been mailed to the warden but were seeing the Interest taken will want to read also in order to join in the dis cussionIt an excellent thing for the teacher to read aloud some good and appropriate book using ten minutes or so each day for the purpose In some districts certain of the patrons may object to this but It the purpose Is kindly explained and the value shown proveI whatItions as ho may think best Many a pupil has been helped on the road to usefulnsss by this means The school readers are always well supplied with good literature which should have attention No lesson should be read without discussion and without having the practical parts applied to the lives of the pupils with this one caution that they should as far as possible make the applica tion themselves To get the most out of this work It is essential that the school be supplied with new reading matter frequently as often as once a year It possible Hero Is where supplementary readers are of great val ue The children should be encouraged to own a few books Some of the worlds bOlt reading matter can be bought In books that cost from five to ten cents Almost any child can raise that much If the teacher has one or two copies to show what they are like and a catalog to select from It ought not to be a difficult thing to induce a few of the pupils to invest their pennies in this way Those that pur chase may after reading exchange with each other thus getting the use of several books for the price of one This process will spread until all will have some good literature All this Is some trouble but Is It not worth a great deal to be able to direct the minds of the children of a district Into right channels to Introduce then to the best works of the best writers that thlr minds may be moulded bet ter than they could otherwise beT Let dischargedI beIerature should not get Into their hand and they acquire a taste for It Trash literature is one of the roads to ruin and should be guarded against the same as any other vice The teacher should keep a sharp lookout for It and destroy it but he should always put something good in Its place I Reading should also be encouraged In the homes The teacher may frequently give himself the pleasure oi pupilsIpleaseIconcerning It If this Is done tactful I a few times It may be the means of getting the paper permanently into the home If the father Is not a read er ask the son or daughter to read the article aloud for the parents and find out what they think about it If they are pleased repeat It until a taste Is formed They Will come to look upon It as a pleasure and by and by as a necessity and it will prove a great blessing to both parents and children d Week being held up in the post office be I cause there was not enough

who loves order If you see a case of neglect of law go to the officer whose duty appears to have been neglected and relieve your mind Ho hears from the other side continually Let him feel that the orderly people aro watching him as well as the toughs Also do not fall to pralso him when he does well Let each officer of the law see that you are ready to give him either praise or blame and with perfect fearlessness The vicious man Is usually1 blatant bold faced and mouthy and the officers hear from him on all occasions Let the other side be hear- dAgainThoI League must have funds Tho
