Mr. Wilson is qualified for this high
position. The people have proclaimed
the fact. His record also shows it.
His life has been spent in a study of
the nation, its laws and its people.
The best of his years have been given
to the service of the people.
The election of Mr. Wilson shows
that others than those of his party
had confidence in him and his ability.

he has not forgotten the experiences
of his early school days. Instead of
dealing with the "hookeys" as cul
prits, he deals with them simply as
boys. He believes that the boys will
apply themselves to school when the
work is fitted to their likes.
A special course of instruction will
be laid out for the truant youths of
St. Louis. It is calculated to hold
their interest and to draw them to
school of their own accord rather
than to make their attendance com
pulsory. More manual training work,
wood working, metal working and
laboratory experiments will be In
cluded in the truant course than in
that of the common school.
This is the first school of its kind
in the United States. It is an experi
ment founded on right principles and

shown that almost any child will ap
ply himself to school work when the
work is made interesting and corre

Hamid looks back over his life and
remarks that he never let his domains

that Turkey was a near European
power in his reign. And now he sees
that Italy has taken the place he once
aimed at. With the sea power gained
by owning Tripoli, Italy has risen to ;
