a job with fiery ardor, and tires when it's three-quarters done; and so there s
little in his larder, and he is always short of mon. He always has a scheme so
splendid it makes all other projects wilt; "you'll see me classed, when all is
ended," he tells his friends, "with Astorbilt." He has no lazy bones within him,
with energy he's all athrob, but it's impossible to pin him down to a sane and
steady job. And bo his wife is doing washing, or beating carpets in the sun, while

his neighbors going sanely to do their tasks from day to day; they prosper well,
while he is vainly inventing projects "bound to pay." The Blinkenshoots, in end

Perfectly Harmless On Sunday
rf-sVERYBODY-GO-TO-CHURCH" Sunday in El Paso will be on January 11.
r The project is taken up in response to a national call and a national move-
meat Cities all over the country have been planning such a mass move
ment, and during the early part of the year there will be a widespread effort to
"get out the vote." Laymen have taken much interest in the movement, and in
many places the local-authorities have actively cooperated.
The object of the movement, to induce everybody to go to some church one
day in the year, does not seem unduly radical or revolutionary. It promises no
harm to any person, firm, or corporation, presages no deadly blow to anybody's pet
interest, indulgence, or vice. It proposes such a mild concession to the call of the
spirit that it is hard to see how anybody can take Offence at it.
Lots of people will go to church nest Sunday who haven't seen the inside of a
church or heard a sermon since childhood. They will find that the .experience is
not fatal. They may even please their own sense of pride, their own conscience, so
well that they will be led to take the chance some other Sunday later on.
All around the membership of every church there is a fringe of non-churchgoers
who nevertheless believe in the idea of having churches, and who support
them financially. Some folks give regularly to the support of some church who
never help -wear out its carpets. Every church has a much wider circle of pro
prietors than its regular attendance r its recorded membership indicates.
The newspapers have freely aided in the latest movement to stimulate church
going. The Chicago American, discussing the Chicago 'go-to-church day set for
February 1, says:
"It is a rare thing for any plan to be born full grown. Nearly always the
atmoiphere is charged with it aid the newspaper simply furn ishes , Mm lightning
rod which brings the thing to earth and makes it plain to all mankind.
-The Go-to?Church movement is just a little counter force to the abstraction

"If the initial difficulty of getting a Chicago business man to go to ebnrch Is
accomplished it ought to be very much easier to keep him in the habit.
So, unless you are sure you can find some better way to spend the church
hour or two next Sunday morning or evening, maybe you would be freshing up
your soul life by taking a look at the inside of some church, and listening to a bit
of good music and a talk on things that really count,
When striking miners have the power to "recall" the sheriffs in the strike
gone, a new element of doubt is injected into the situation. Why not let the
private soldiers "recall" the generals if they do not like them? Why not let the
Republican party "recall" Mr. Wilson and Mr. Bryan?
Legislation in Texas designed sfU further to reduce the net revenue of rail
roads is legislation directly against the interests of all the people of the state.
There is absolutely o need or demand for a 2c passenger fare law in Texas, and
any legislator promoting such measures puts himself down as a rank demagog

Schools Growing Sensible
THE world is progressing. The boy has a better cnance tnis year man ne nas
ever had before. Scneote are growing sensible. For example, the Michigan
board of education reports that the buys of the Ishpeming high school, from
the manual training department, are regularly employed and paid for repair work
about the schools, laying concrete sidewalks, mending roofs, putting in and re
pairing plumbing, and building brick walls. They are now about to put up a gym
nasium for their own use, high school seniors having drawn the plans.
This is sound practical education that cannot but benefit every boy. Combined
with the ordinary book studies of the school, the actual constructive work and
acquaintance with materials and the laws of building, make an education that is
bemad to lead to a better balanced life than either the education that is only from
books or the education that is only from work.
The boys that are to be lawyers and doctors, business men and clerks, news
paper men and artists, all will do better work for the bricklaying and concrete mix

Senator Ashurst's Fence Bill
A COPY of the Congressional Record just received sheds light on senator
Aafearsfs proposal to fence the international boundary line frem the Rio
Grande to the Pacific. It turns out that the fence was not intended to en
force the neutrality law, or to keep out fleeing federal victors or rebel juntas, of
even war rumors, but only to keep out diseased cattle. A national law of 1910
authorizes the secretary of agriculture to permit fences along international
boundaries for the purpose, and the Arizona live stock sanitary board has by reso
lution asked for the fence for the purpose specified. The plan is endorsed by the
national bureau of animal industry. Senator Ashursfs bill was no joke, and he
will press it to early consideration.

Many an American girl has begun her

100 Years Ago Today
One hundred years ago today Gen.
William Hull was tried by court-martial
on charges of treason, cowardice and
inefficiency. Gen. Hull waa governor of
Michigan territory when the war of 1812
began. He was appointed to the com
mand of the army of the northwest, with
directions to invade Canada. The in
vasion was unsuccessful and he retired
with his army to Detroit. The British
followed and prepared to attack the fort.
Gen. Hull's troops were readv and anx
ious to fight, but without offering much
resistance he surrendered the fort, the
army and the territory of Michigan. Fv
order of president Madison, Gen. Hull
was summoned to a court-martial, which
found him guilty of cowardice and sen
tenced him to death. The sentence was
not executed, but he was dropped from
the army rolls. Before he died Gen. Hull
had the satisfaction of knowing that tvs
conduct had met with vindication in the
minds of the people.
