Ono of the Historic Mysteries of the
World When and By Whom Was
(West Union (O.) Record.)
We spent one day last week nt th-'
Serpent Mound and again viewed this
splendid work of antiquity. The park
is in line condition, considering the con
tinued drouth, and Superintendent W&I
tiuued drouth, and Supt. Wallace is
certainly the right man for the place.
This mound is so familiar to Recurd
readers that any comment we might
make would be .superfluous. The Mound
Builder literally left "footprints on the
sands of time," but their trail leads
only to oblivion, lie bequeathed to the
succeeding nges no written records, and
his temples tell no tales as to their time
or purpose. His only answer to every
conceivable guess concerning his origin,
age and destiny is his unbroken silence.
Professor Putnam, to whom is due tho
credit of tho restoration and preserva
tion of the mound, says in
tho account of his first visit:
"The graceful curves throughout the
whole length of this singular elligy
give it n strange life-like appearance;
ns if a huge serpent, slowly uncoiling
itself and creeping silently and steadily
along the crest of the hill, was about
to seize tho oval within Its extended
jaws. In the afternoon, when tho lights
and shades arc brought out into strong
relief, tho effect is indeed strange and
wierd; and this effect is heightened stii
more when the full moon lights up the
sceuo ami tho stillness is broken by the
'whoo-whoo, whoo-hoo' of the unseen
bird of night. Reclining on one of the
huge folds of this gigantic serpent, as
tho last rays of the sun gleaming from
the distant hilltops, cast their long shad
ows qvor tho valley, I mused on the
probabilities of the past; and there
seemed to come to mo a picture as of a
distant time, of a peoplo with strange
customs, and with it came t)io demand
for an interpretation of this mystery.
'Tho unknown must become known'."

THE PRACTICAL FHILOBOPHER.
Tho selection of tho right type of man
for each job is not ensy. Each man
must formulate his own rules for hand
ling men which will vary in every case.
Qrent commanders are born, not made,
but careful study of personality will
not injure tho greatest commander.
liuying machine tools is much like
buying dogs. Tho man who starts out
without knowing what breed ho wantj
Is apt to get a mongrel, and gets neither
satisfactory results nor does ho -gie
satisfaction to tho sale.smnn. "Know
what you waut" is a good motto to
learn before entering the salesroom.
Trifles niako u big difference in the
practical uso of tools in a shop; a lathe
with an oven number of teeth in the
head gear permits the easy rotation of
tho spindle in fractions of a turn, while
ouo with an uneven number of teeth
is difficult to handle; yet these small
points aro often overlooked.
Part-time schools for young boys are
In vpguo in many places and are doing
much good; butnlioy do not benefit the
older boys and men whoso age prohibits
their attendance nt these schools. It l
suggested that the sparo tlmo during
the noon hour be employed for the in
structiou of aspiring workmen.
Any man has respect for another
man's real knowledge and the intimate
connection which the automobile driver
has with his intricate and elaborate ma

machinist who' produced that mechan
ism. The automobile has brought the
machinist into everyday lifo and has
broken down another barrier between

session of tho National Kducatiuuul

The annual couxentiou closed atter i
brief session devoted to a discussion o
tho needs of the public school.
"Our public schools ot today, sail
Dr. Francis, "are namby-pamby places

many girls to loso their souls.
Continuing, ho said:
"Give our girls courses In costume do
