What Should He Do?
A series of questions has been
sent out by a high school principal
in Mansfield, Ohio, which are inter
esting particularly to Minnesotans
because lof the recent trouble with
the Red Wing reform school, Here
are the questions:
Good and Bad are two boys, each
fourteen years of age. They attend
the same school. One day Bad said
to Good: "I am going to throw a
snowball through the window." Good
made no reply. Bad threw the snow
ball and broke the window, and Good
saw him do it. The next morning at
school the teacher asked the pupils
singly and privately the questions,
"Do you know who broke the win-
dow?" and "Who broke the win-
1. What should Good say when
the teacher asked him, "Do you know
who broke the window?"
2. What should Good say when
she asked him, "Who broke the win-
3. Should the teacher have asked
the boy these questions,
4. Should the teacher have the
same right as the court in compelling
Good to tell?
6. Modern American schools are
rapidly adopting systematic instruc
tion in ethics. In your opinion, should
children throughout the public
schools be taught that it is their
duty to tell the truth about wrong
doing when questioned by a compe
There 1B an additional question
which should have been asked to
make the consideration complete:
"Supopse Bad is engaged not only
in mischievous tricks, but in corrupt
ing the minds of the younger boys
and infecting their morals, should
Good tell the teacher?"
School boy honor and school boy
training are both interesting and
important propositions. The ques
tions asked above must be answered
daily by teachers in our public
schools and on the interpretations
given depends more than a little of
the future of the boy.
The editor of the Pioneer suggests
that the readers give these questions
a little thought with a view toward
sending In their opinions for publi
cation. A series of opinions each not
oyer 100 words in length might
throw some light on the subject and
would be of great value to the Be
He Advertised-At Lait.
There was a man in our town,
And he was-wondrous wise
He swore (it was his policy)
He would not advertise.
But one sad day he advertised,
And thereby hangs a tale,
The ad. was set in six point
And headed "Sheriff's Sale."Ex.
Watch the Chimneys.
Yesterday the Pioneer had occas
ion to report two fires caused by de
fective chimneys. One caused a dam
age of about $6,000 while the other
caused but a few dollars. Last week
it had occasion to report a third
chimney fire. The state fire marshal!
says that a large percentage of fires
are caused by defective chimneys.
A stove pipe put through a hole
cut in a board roof is not a chimney
it is a fire hug. Sooner or later it
will start a roof fire that may result
in damage of a few cents or may
cause a fire that will sweep a block.
If the roof is protected by tin, that
will help but the menace is still
there. During the cold weather, too
much 'care cannot be eexreised In
watching chimneys. Fires are costly,
especially when so many are merely
the result of carelessness.
Join the Associated Charities.
In the near future every citizen of
Bemidji will have an opportunity to
become a member of the Associated
Charities of Bemidji. Invitations
are to be sent out inviting new mem
bers. Yearly fees will be on dollar.
An opportunity of this nature
should not be passed without some
consideration. Too many people look
upon this work as unnecessary and
some have even gone so far as to re
mark that those interested are doing
it just for the publicity they get out
of it. The leaders who are putting*0
in their time and money in this
cause are not the kind to look for
any undue publicity. It is those who
do nothing for the cause and the pur
poses designated by the charitable
movement, and who never have done
anything for the poor of this city,
who have the criticism to-offer.
Unchanging Laws of Etiquette.
It is astonishing to see how little
the standard of good manners seems
to have changed sincelhe middle ages.
The strenuous,life, and the higher
education have not altered our concep
tion of the laws of good breeding, even
If they leave us little time for the
carrying out of them, and the rules of
conduct upon which we have all been
brought up are in many respects the
same to-day as those propounded in
the manuals of etiquette of hundreds

Sample Bottle Often
Some time I was afflicted with kid

able to obtain any relief from other
medicines so sent for a sample bottle
of your Swamp-Root. I receivea so
much benefit from this small bottle
that I purchased a large bottle of the
druggist. I continued the use of Dr.
Kilmer's Swamp-Root until I regard
ed myself as cured and am now in
very good health. I recommended it
to a neighbor who has used it with
the same results.
I regard your remedy, Swamp
Root, as a preparation that will do
all you claim for it.
