The fundamental que^tirju of cost in operating the

promise of extreme cheapness be realized, however, the
economic operation should more than compensate for
the change of Kyatem.
Unless the Union I'aclflc managers urn far astray

drawing near the period when the hideous poles and the

LIVE WITH YOUR CHILDREN
What Mr. Bettinger Said Respecting
LOS ANGELES, April 17.— (Editor
Ilfinld;: Hinro thro? of the loading
<!ty papers havo given prominent
mention to something that tsomo ono
understood mo to Ray before the High
land Park Child Study circle last
Wednesday, will you kindly give space
to what I really did nay?
On the "don't" phase of tho subject
I Bald: "No child over got his rightful
poise or Iwirnori his rightful relation
to people iind things who was shielded
and sheltered and coddled and hedged
In and dressed up and 'don't-ed" all
through his childhood, In Bcason and
out of season, by his elders. 1 ' That
was the only utterance on the subject
of "don't" In the whole talk.
Farther on In tho talk I used thoso
wonls: "In order to properly find
himself out he should have a chance
to bo bad, not to become bad— that Is
different But hft should have free
runßi! enough to find out that there Ik
a bad side to lifo, and then there
should 1)0 somo ono living In clone
enough confidence with him, nnd wlfie
enough to give thin knowledge of evil
the right setting In his mind and sup
lily the antidote for any moral poison
that may have boon picked up. That
would prevent him from becoming bad,
whllo at tho same time It would land
him at mnnhood'R estate prepared for
life nH It really Is."

cates, is bapod upon the teachings of
Chrlpt, and nothing else.
The study of the Christian Selene*
text book, "Science and Health "With
Key to the Scriptures," will disclose
that Christian Science dons not depart
one iota from the teachings of Chrlfit.
In Mark 1<5:20 It Is related of tho
dlßcfplos "And they went forth and
prcar-hed everywhere, the Lord work-
Ing with them and then confirming the
word with signs following." In the
seventeenth verse of the same chapter
It is aald: "And these signs shall fol
low thorn that believe." Now it logi
cally follows that since Christian
Science produces signs (healing)
through the understanding of Jesus'
teaching that its Interpretation must
be correct and therefore Christian in
the fullest sense of tho term.

Valuable War Relic
Recently there was hung on the wall

relic of the days of 1776. It Is a Brit

thfi attack. The holes shown in the

used by tho American army. The
Btrlp torn off the bottom was removed
by an army surgeon to stop the flow
of blood from the wounds received by
General Poor Just previous to the sur

property of Colonel Perrle Kewen, and
is loaned to the Union League club for

IN PLACE OF SALOONS
San Diego Has a Suggestion for Los
SAN' DIEGO, April 17.— (Editor Her
ald): Permit me to suggest to the
temperance people of Los Angeles the
very great desirability of providing
substitutes for the saloons.
Most workmen feel the need of a
place to spend a pleapant evening, to
meet their friends, smoke a pipe or
read the paper. The saloons further
provide them with music.
Now, why cannot the temperance
advocates go the saloons one better
and take a leaf out of their books?
To close all the saloons without pro
viding plenty of counter attractions
would be a huge blunder.
In addition to tea and coffee, there is
a perfectly harmless drink that might
be provided: Add one-fifth claret to
v glass of lemonade. It may be said
that this would necessitate a license,
but surely this is a matter of law
that may be compromised, or If not
there is such a thing as unfermented
claret which can be substituted.
Claret (one-fifth) la superior to all
fruit essences and with one-fourth
lemonade makes a most refreshing
drink and has all the apearance of
I would like to see a room set apart
for reading aloud of anecdotes, short
stories, Interesting narratives etc. For
25 cents an hour plenty of good readers
caii be hired. It Is at least worth try
ing and for boys and girls, to keep
them off the streets, It would be an
immense success. F. A. BINNEY.
