Ronan School Notes
Last week closed the first month
and the report cards will be given out
this week. These cards should be sign
ed by parent or guardian and returned
promptly. Examine the reports care
fully, and if the pupils work does not
appear to be satisfactory see the teach
er about it. As many of the pupils
have been out of school for such a long
period and on recount of the difficulties
of starting a new school both pupils
and teachers need-the hearty co-opera
tion of the parents of the children. It
will take sometime before all the neces
sary equipment for the school is se
cured and the pupils'will be in a con
lition to do their best work, but a
little time and patience on the part of
all, together with the assistmnce of th
patrons of the school, these conditim a
wvill be soon remedied.

Primarily life insurance is a co-oper
ative piln to meet the default involved
in the premature death of produc
tive lives. A nonproductive life is not
properly insurable. A life stamped
with immorality is not insurable. A
life somewhat impaired through defec
tive family history or by individual
weakness or disease, if that life at the
same time is a productive life. is in
surable at a price. All of which brings
us back to the same conciusion-1. e..
life insurance Is a great social pIa
which merges the individual into III,
mass and puts behind the frailty of
man standing alone the immeasurable
strength of men standing together.

Reign of the Dandies.
In the matter of dress we have fallen
upon a decllte since the days when the
Duke of Wellington was refused ad
mission to Almack's because he was
wearing trousers Instead of breeches
and silk stockings. Even Almack's.
however. had to admit trousers within
its closely guarded portals the following
year. . When Gladstone was "up" at
Oxford the reign of the dandies was in
tall swing. When late In life he re
visited the university to lecture to the
undergradutates on Homer he was
asked by G. W. E. Russell whether he
noticed any difference between his au
dience and the men of his own time.
"Yes." he replied. "In their dress an

had among my audience some of the
most highly connected and richest men
in the university, and there wasn't one
whom I couldn't have dressed from
