An instance, of the application of a
precocious knowledge of the law by a
child occurred in a Parisian school
last January. In France education is
obligatory. but the law can not compel
children to remain at school after the
age of thirteen. This law, needless to
remark. is usually a dead letter. a pu
pil suddenly got up in the maddle of
a lesson gathered up his hook, placed
them neatly in his desk. took up his
hat and moved toward the door.
"Where are you going? asked the
teacher. with a certain amount O1
acerbity. "Sir." replied the boy. with
irritating nonchalance. "I was thirteen
years of age four minutes ago and

me at school."

How Japan Has Thrived On War.
The record of Japan's recent ma
terial progress is, it seems. as remark
able as her- progress in military
achievement. Mr. F. WV. Hewes, the
well-known statistical authority,
writes interes-.ingly on this subject in
the current Harper's Weekly. The
1increase of postal savings during the
nrst eight months of the war, for ex
ample, shows an increase from
$15,380,0oo to $18,612,ooo-indicatinlg
an astonishing increase of the sources
from which such savings are drawn;
the incomes provided by industrial
employment. The savings bank de
posits have increased 2! per cent dur
ing trae same period; there has also
been an increase of bank reserves
amounting to 5.5 per cent, an increase
of 1o-5 per cent in rice production, of
8.2 per cent in exports, and of 6.2 per
cent in imports.
