from any one else?"
"That's the feller," replied the sta

suicide 'bout a month ago."
"Why. that's terrible! But did he do
that differently too?"
"Differently!" ejaculated the station
master. "Why, 1 should say he did.

a couple of quarts of gasoline, drank

The Bath as a Tonic.
The bath recommended by Uncle
Sam to tbe army boys as a means of
invigorating tired nerves and muscles
and promoting an appetite after a hard
day's drill immediately suggests itself
as the very thing for women. It
should be preceded by brushing the
teeth and drinking half a pint of cold
water, so that the body may be clean
within as well as without. This done,
the body from bead to waist is rapid

MIND AND BODY IMPROVED.

That A Regarded as Most Impor-
tant8**ength of Body Is of as Great
Value Development of the Mind.
The hygiene of tbe schools, the care
of the school children and the estab
lishment of playgrounds are rapidly
coming to be regarded as among the
most Important questions of the age.
When it Is considered that school chil
dren spend from eight to fifteen of
the formative years of their lives in
schools it is only reasonable to expect
that their bodies as well as their minds
should be prepared for their life work,
for a well trained mind in a weak
body is as much a mistake as a house
built on the sands.
In this country as well as in many
others children are compelled by the
state to attend school until a certain
age is reached. Up to the age when
children can leave school the state
should be responsible for their health,
according to Professor Irving Fisher
of Yale university. Likewise the state
should be responsible for their mental
training and should recognize the fact
that the schoolhouse is more than a
place for the children to spend a few
hours a day for ten months of the
Better than the ordinary school is
the outdoor school, which is now so
rapidly coming into prominence. Where

fresh air schools have been established
children suffering from certain forms
of tuberculosis or who come from tu
bercular families have gained in
strength and health and have showed
better mental development
Besides the good effect on children's
health, it has been found that children
attend school more regularly when it
is conducted on the outdoor plan.
One.of the greatest needs of Ameri
can cities today, in order to preserve
the vitality of children is the estab
lishment of playgrounds, easily acces
sible to all children of a community.
It is said that the physical and mental
are inseparably joined together, and if
one is defective the other will suffer in
sympathy. It appears Impossible to
develop the child physically in any
way so effectively as through active
play. Formal gymnastics can accom
plish relatively little. The child must
have some end to gain that arouses its
enthusiasm and demands agility and
strength and endurance. Then its
whole bodily mechanism will work to
gether in harmony to secure this end.
Even if playgrounds were of no
value J* social development they would
still be Inestimable service in keep
ing chftAren out of crime. If a boy's
energlcr are not used up in wholesome
activity they will often find expression
in illegitimate conduct
There is a movement on foot in
Washington among those interested in
the welfare of the school children
which bids fair to solve in many in
stances the problem of lack of play
ground during their recesses for the
pupils of the public schools, a problem
which, owing to the neglect of the
school authorities of former years to
provide sufficient space for the greatly
Increased number of scholars, has in
very many cases become a most seri
The solution of the trouble, as pro
vided by the movement is to appro

The proposed plan is to set aside a
block of the street roadway during the
recess time by means of ropes that can
be readily adjusted to poles set In the

Every third man in Mongolia is a
lama. Some live in tents with and on
their relatives, while others live in tbe
temples. The temple lamas are of the
lower type. They are coarse and filthy
and much inferior, both morally and
physically to the tent lamas. They are
not unlike those sometimes seen by
travelers In the ~Lama temple at Pek

and are much -respected and looked up

Man Who Buys Goods Away From

One of our citizens is going to build a

Iowa and the furniture somewhere
else. The paint also he will buy by
mail. He doesn't expect to buy any
thing in this town. All he expects this
town to furnish is the money to pay
for the stuff.
He is one of those fellows who be
