PLAN TO EXCHANGE BABIES
Cl«vrlng-Hous« In £urop« by Which
Different Nationalities Ar«
to Be Traded.
On© of the curious things run across In
Europe Is the scheme of a Frenchman
named Michael Hreal. broached as luru*
ago as 1886, and which is being again
It consists of a wholesale exchange,
a swapping of children, from one family
to another, says a recent report
Here is 1 Parisian father in modest es
tate, with a son. This man has an ambi
tion that his child shall have a thorough
knowlelge of German. The proper
thing would be to place the child in some
German family for awhile. B t the dlffl
:ulty for the fatties is to di c vr Just
the right sort of family—one who would !
receive the child, one that he could tfllßt
with the child, and, above all. one who
had a child to swap. The Parisian father
would be spending no extra money in
housing the German child and teaching
it French, while his own was eating at a
German table. Meanwhile two nations
were understanding each other better.
It was a splendid scheme, if only It could
bo carried out.
What was needed was a baby broker,
as it were, an exchange, a clearing
house for children, an agency to 1 eep
tab of famili: a willing to iwap children
and to engineer the swap. A man name!
Tor.i Mntliien saw the chance, and im
proved it during the vacation period lasl
fear. He had prejudices to overcome.
After a deal of letter writing he won the
Indispensable, not to say Inevitable,
sanction of college professors of great
authors, prominent lawyers and mem
bers of parliament. He even succeeded
in placing an order of five children on
trial. He devoted a whole y*ar to
booming the enterprise, And it vas
h( art-breaUing work. He would win the
approval of a lot of English or Germ in
or Scandinavian families, only to Bnd
in his own land no readiness oftra^e.
And yet, in spite of everything, he ! aa
succeeded in a measure. The icheme is
working and Mr. Mathieu has decided
to found a society and push the idea for
all it is worth.
This society is to be known by the
Solemn title of "International Exchange
for Children in the Study of Foreign
Langi;.i,reK and Cusuon,?." Porhoni ;

An elaborate system of correppondeno©
has been drawn up already. There is a
precautionary exchange of photographs

all concerned. The closing details of the
railroad journey, under suitable escorts
in the case of girls, are easily looked
after by the exchange.
FRUITFULNESS OF FADS.
Outdoor Sports and Pastimes That
Benefit Both the Mind
To the eye of one scoffer the ancient
sport of golf la "chasing a quinine pill
around' a ten-acre lot." Another is like
the small boy who watched a gray
haired man making a bad mess of "put
ting" on a sir en which lay in a little hol
low, exposed to all the heat of a sum
mer sun, and then asked the red-faced
and perspiring victim of bad aim and
worse judgment of force: "Mister, do
you get paid for doing that?" Yet go!f
gives new health and life to many a man
at the time of life when such open-air
exercise and such novel contact with
mother earth mean more than youth
can understand, says the Cleveland
So to other eyes angling is inspired
idiocy. Does it not lead sane and able
bodied men to stand or sit for hours
catching nothing, hoping against hope
that bites will come from the water in
stead of from creepi and flying things?
It seems to many outside the charmed
circle of the angle, to wrept geometry a
trifle silly to do nothing, hour after hour,
but watch and wait, and agitate a .string
at the end of a pole. Yet how immeas
urable the joy and tonic of fishing to
those who love to bg lured away into the
enchanted wilds where nature hides h*r
secrets of refreshment and inspiration
for the sons of men.
It is the lame with unnumbered fada.
