square feet of canvas worth a shill

GOOD ROADS VALUE
In an article in The World's Work
of the October issue on "Roads Worth
$33,000,000 a Year," L. L. Hewes gives
some interesting figures, showing the
relation of automobiles to good roads.
"And we have said nothing yet of
the automobile. We probably have

motor vehicles in this country. George

CIVIL SEKVICE POSTMASTERS.
It has been practically decided by
President Taft to put all fourth-class
postmasters under the civil service
regulations, according to a dispatch
from Washington. The only wonder
is that it has not been done before.
The sight of the President of the
United States compelled to spend val
uable time in the routine of making
the ::C,03S appointments where in most
cases he knows none of the appli
cants and must rely on the members
of Congress for recommendations, is
rather ridiculous except- for its seri
ous consequences. And the idea that
a public officer will do better work
because his position is in the balance

A MAX WHO KNOWS TOO MUCH
Did yo uever meet the man who was
afraid or ashamed to say "I do not
know." If you have, you will agree
that he is about as disagreeable as
the man who is afraid to say "No."
He does not realize that to be able
to say "I do not know" is the ARC
of education. Unless we learn to con
fess our ignorance on certain subjects
we will always be ignorant of life as
a whole. We will have a mere smat
tering of knowledge. We must keep
lots of things out of our mind for this
is a nage of specialization.
A man who pretends to a knowledge
which he has not is like a small boy
in his father's clothes ridiculous.
When a man confesses that he kno-.vs
but little we will listen to him with
increased respect: hut if a man
claims knowledge of all things we
doubt mightily that he knows much
of anything. And we accept question
ingly whatever he says of everything.
To he respected and liked by his
teiiow men, a man in nis mature afterthought, they go round the cor-

THE MISSCURIAN'S OFFICIAL WEATHER MAP
The mule is losing ground, even in
his old home state. Despite the fact
that for almost a century the Mis
souri mule has heen a most potent
factor in the development of this
great state, has ploughed her hills,
marketed her grain and made her rich
in the products of her soil through
his steady service, he is about to he
put on the retired list. On the high
way the auto succeeds him and in the
field the traction engine. The only
way he can save himself it to ginger
mi get more speed and that is im
possihle. So It's "Good-bye, mule."
The Missouri mule has a nation
wide reputation and it is timely and
fitting that upon his withdrawal from
a long and useful service that some
thing be said in appreciation. Safe
to say he will not be forgotten. He
has made lasting impressions in more
ways than one. There arc Missouri
farmers who still swear by the mule
and would keep him for the sake of
old time friendship if for no other
reason. If guided by their heart feel
ing, they would organize and main
tain a home for the care of superan
uated mules. When rapid farm ma
chinery and improved horse-pover
have crowded the steady faithful beast
from the service of man. he'll still he

About a mile out of Stratford-on-Avon,

Yet all the wealth of the world could
not buy it. In that cot and its pretty i
rustic garden the greatest of the
worlds poets, the sweet Swan of Avon, j
the immortal Shakespeare, did his
courting. It is the cottage of Ann
Hathaway. And if that cottage is
priceless, what must be asked for the
old timbered Elizabethan house in
(Stratford itself where the great play
wright was born? It is literally worth
its weight in rubies.
The house in Broad Street, in the
City of London, where John Milton
was born, perished, like thousands of
its kind, in the fire of London, still
commemorated by the monument on
Fish Street Hill. But there is a cot
tage rendered priceless, nevertheless,
by the touch of the blind bard's gen
ius. It is at Chalfont St. Giles, in
Bucks. It was Milton's country re

to it because Milton there finished his
