FORGET THE DIFFERENCES.
It is evident the councilmen acted on
their best judgment in choosing a pav
ing for the business portion of Colfax
after investigating different pavements
in other cities. They are confident that
in choosing a higher priced paving they
have secured a higher grade of material
and workmanship. In doing this they
feel they have acted for the best interests
of the taxpayers by whom they were
elected to transact the business of the
The remonstrance signed by many
taxpayers is also good evidence that
many are not satisfied with the choice.
They are just as honest ia their belief as
are the councilmen in theirs, but some
one had to make a choice and the coun
cilmen have made it. Now let us get to*
gether and work for a better town, a
better place in which to livp.
Colfax needs a large amount of paving
and it was a source of satisfaction to
see that no personal feeling and open
bitterness entered into the discussion be
fore the council meeting Monday even
ing. Now that the question of the kind
of paving has been settled every pro
gressive citizen interested in the welfare
of Colfax should lend his assistance to
smoothing over the differences which
have sprung up. Harmony within the
bounds of a city will do more for its
upbuildiug than any other one thing

PERILS OF THE FARM.
German statistics covering a period of
twenty-tive years show that agriculture
suffers more on account of accidents
than any other occupation In a report
submitted recently to the National As
sociation of Manufacturers the German
statistics are discussed for the purpose
of showing that farmers ougnt to be
considered in states that are seeking to
make accident insurance in some form
In view of the showing made by the
German statistics the Post Intelligencer
says it is plain that men who work on
farms in this country ought to be in
cluded in any plan desigued to compens
ate injured workmen and to care for
their families in event of death caused
by accident while in service.
PRESIDENT NOT WORRYING.
Whiie congress has been literally stew
ing and fuming during the hot weather,
President Taft haa not been worrying a
particle. His office in refrigerated to a
comfortable temperature, but if it were
not the heat does not seem to trouble
him, for he plays go!f on the the hottest
days. He is prepared to "stick it out"
all summer if congress wishes to star
that long. Reports from various parts
of the country agree that the president
is growing in strength politically, al
though he is adverse to doicg even the
smallest thing to make political capital.
He will be content to have history say
that he made a capable and conscien
tious chief executive.
Psychology of Store Planning.
The basement of a store was fonaer
ly regarded merely as a cellar, tit for
storage, packing boxes, etc. Then
came a merchant of the present day.
gifted with an imagination to an un
usual degree, who recoguized—though
perhaps, not in these terms—that the
customer was guided by subconscious
control and argued that the lark of
effort in going downstairs would ap
peal to the subconsciousness and that
the glimpse of displays seen at the
foot of the stairs would lead customers
to the basement, notwithstanding the
low ceiling, the imperfect ventilation
and the absence of daylight This
merchant has lived to see not only a
daily attendance on a basement n\><>!
ten or a dozen times greater than thai
on the average floor a hove the first.
but also to see his discovery copied by
practically every store in the land
The real gist of his discovery was
that subconscious control leads us t<>
do the easy thing first—namely, go
downstairs—without reckoning with
the next problem, which was. or
course, petting out of the basement.—

According to a theory enunciated I ■.
Professor Lenard, the aurora bor
is formed of cathode rays emitted by

magnetic field in the upper strata of
the atmosphere. The velocity of these
cathode rays must be nearly equal to
that of light and very much greater
than the velocity of cathode rays pro

cludes thai these extremely "hard"
cathode rays are emitted by unknown
radioactive substances in the sun.

There isn't a stream or a brook lv
the island of Nantucket, off tiie New
England coast, but there are plenty of
windmills, which pump water to tanks
and thus supply community needs:
also Nautucket possesses what is be
lieved to be the oldest windmill for
grinding corn in actual operation in
America. Nathan Wilbur, a Nantucket
sailor, who had seen the busy wind
mills of Holland as he sailed abroad,
built it out of timbers of wrecked ships
in 174 G. There has never been a day
in all the 1(33 years since that time
when the mill has not been busy.
