A SUCCESSFUL, SUMMER SCHOOL,
Superintendents and teachers from
tkher parts of the State who have been
ih touch with the 12th annual session of
the University of Vermont's summer
BChool tell us that It has been a remark
ably helpful and successful undertaking.
They say that teachers are certain to
take greater advantage of this opportun
tfy for "brushing up" during the summer
Vacation. They predict a pronounced In
crease in the attendance from this source
alono next year.
SVe nre naturally gratified to Becure
this unprejudiced testimony. It confirms
the Impressions we have gained from a
close observation of developments during
tho session. Wo felt that the BOO people
In attendance were securing material re
sults and aids that would be of service
to them in their work during the coming
year In the schools and elsewhere.
This outside testimony Is also In line
with what advices we are receiving rela
tive to the coming year In all the de
partments of the University. So far as"
We can see, it will be by all odds the
fclggest year In the history of the Insti

THE AUGUST SKIES
Good Month to Study "Rhootlnd St!ir'
nnd the Milky Wuy
In eliciting tho abovo facts the
statistician hae dlsproven the widely
accepted theory that he is a dull and
tedious individual who may bo depended
upon to select for his enumerations some
obscure and technical subject in which
the average run of men and women are
not Interested. Here is one man of
tables and averages who is human. He
was, during tho World Wajr, Colonel
Leonard P. Ayres, attached to the office
of the Chief of Staff. He is now Mr.
Ayres, director of eduoatlon for the
RUBSell Sago Foundation.
SAVE THESE WAR FIGURES
At the close of tho war Colonel Ayres
compiled for the War Department a
statistical summary which, showed at
a glance what had happened during those
months of conflict. His summary showed,
for Instance, that tho total battle deaths
ln tho recent war wero greater than
the deaths ln all wars for a hundred years
before; that Russia suffered most, de-
spno ner witntirawai; tnat uermany lost
thirty-two times as many men as the
United States; Franco 28 times as many,
and Great Britain 18 times as many. In
this war St men In 1,000 were killed
in battle ln a year, while ln the Civil
War 33 ln 1,000 were so killed, and in
tho Mexican War 15 ln each 1,000. Thus
the death rate in battle during the
World War was highest of all wars.
Colonel Ayers further reported that
during the Mexican War 110 In each 1,000
men died of disease, and that 65 ln each
1,000 men were lost from the same cause
during the Civil War. But during the
World War the loss from disease was
only 19 In each 1,000 men, so that the late
conflict scored a great success through
making a science of cleanliness.
Now the man who compiled these vital
figures has been counting the words
people use. The ten next most used words
are have, not, with, be, your, at, we, on,
he, by. They are all little fellows, who,
like Peter Pan, never grow up.
Colonel Ayres, ln his study of educa- 1
tlonal problems, developed tho theory 1
that tho words ln the spelling books (
should be those which people use ln that
most common form of writing which
appears ln the letters they transcribe.
Spoken words do not need to bo spelled.
Few people write anything other than
business and personal letters. Would
It ho possible, he asked, to find out
what words were used in this sort of
writing, and to make sure that they
were in the spelling hooks?
FEW WORDS ARE USED
He went to a dozen different organi
zations which received typical letters,
and got great packs of them for statis
tical analysis. Ho tabulated letters run
ning Into more than 300,000 words
altogether. The surprising fact was de-1
veloped that but about 2,000 different
words wero used in all this correspond
ence. A man with a vocabulary ot
2.000 words could have dictated these
letters from thousands of people, writ
ing on hundreds of subjects. Yet the
child In the elementary grades studies
nbout 12,000 words, and a desk dictionary
contains 26,000. Many of these words
are bo rare that the avarage Individual
never uses them, The practical thing
would seem to be to learn the used
words first. To find out those words
was the object of this queer statistical
Half of the bulk of the letters written
by the people Is made up of a simple
list of fifty words, all of which are of
ono syllable except the modest word,
any. Three hundred words constitute
thrce--"rurths of the space ln tho letters
wo write, and a thousand of them do
ninety per oent of the work. In th
first 200 of most frequently used words
there are but b half-dozen of moro than
one syllable. They f-ro nearly nil homely

(From tho St. Joseph Gazette)
There seems to bo no limit to tho de
velopment of modern conveniences, Now
It Is to be made possible for persons wish
ing to use public library reference books
to make their notes and keep their rec
ords by the simple process of taking i
few snapshots, A camera" with a special
type of lens has been Invented for use

material than one really needs and so
cluttering up ono's notebook or desk.
In the small library, however, there would
bo ono great advantage. It would short
en an Individual's uso of certain reference
volumes, making them available to more

A new Instrument for testing and listen

perfected by the U. S. Engineers, and Is
said to bo extremely sensitive. It has
long been known that tho earth as well
as water, air and ether convoys vibra
tions, which can be converted Into sys
tematic messages by the appropriate
means; and Indeed a system of wireless
telegraphy, using the earth Itself as the
transmitting "wire" has long been em
ployed, We have perfected tho "hydro
phono" for detecting the sounds In water;
wireless apparatus for catching tho In
visible signals flashing through the ether;
and various "amplifying" pieces of ap

sound conveyed through the air. Now
