Tho report for tho month of Novem
ber, 1914, is quite similar to tho No
vember report of last year; 1 more en
rolled, but tho nvorago attondnnco is
12 moro. The per cent of attondnnco
in tho buildings is as follows: High
school, 0!) per cetn; Center Graded, 00
per cent; Forest Aveutfo, 80 per cent;
First District, B7 per cent; SixtlWard,
84 per cent; Colored High, 00 per cent;
Colored Sixth Ward, 70 per cent. The
month has boon characterized by very
quiet, thougn effective work. Nothing
has transpired during tho month to
hindor eflVctivo work. Tho one enso of
scarlet fover in tho First District
seems to have been so completely Iso
lnted thnt thero is no recurrent attack.
'According to tho directions of tho
Board, the supplementary readers and
primary supplies that on last yenr were
subjected to contngion were destroyed,
Wo believe and earnestly hopo that
thorn will bn no further outbreak of
scarlet fever. W. .1. CAPLINGER,

DON'T WORK TOO HARD
WHY WORK AT ALL?
T Don't work too hard," is the ad
monition given by Dr. William C.
Woodward, president of tho American
Public Health Association, nt a meet
ing iu Washington this week of tho
Association for tho Prevention of Tu
berculosis. Blessed be Dr. Woodward!
Lookinir wav back at that order
giveu by ono Captain John Smith of
Pocahontas fame, when ho made the
rulo that the colonist who d'd not
work should not eat, tho proposition
looks good and sensible. But when
tho proposition comes close to homo,
it loses somo of its romantic flavor.
Naturally, it would bo difficult to dc
fino whero too hard work begins and
where 'work nt all ends. However this
tuny be, it is somo consolation to know
that what nils most of us is hard work,
although thero may bo some of us who
never liavo suspected it.
"We must avoid excessivo lnbor,
physical and mental," is the advice,
which simply emphasizes tho dangers
.wo run who strivo for a living. How
ever, wo appear to bo between two
fii-p on this Inst proposition. Most of
us will no doubt discover that if we
do not overstrain some in our phyyicil
labors, wo may bo reduced to tho np'.cs
sity of working our wits overtime, ;nd
other people, too, in ordor to got enough
of tho necessaries of life to make us
really enjoy living. And if we do not
la this age work our brains up to about
the limit, wo may bo forced to tho diro
necessity of being compolled to work
with our hands an thus put too strong a
tax upon our muscles.
-The cards seem to bo stacked against
us either way wo take look at tlum,
and upon calm nnd unprejudiced con
sideration of tho recommaiidation?
given, wo nro forced to tho conclu
sion that such advice can really bo
followed only by tho "idle rich," who
are suffering, howovor, from just tho
opposite, lnck of healthful work, und
so thero wo are. Charleston (W. Va )
