Things were progressing quite
satisfactorily and the teacher was
congratulating ' himself on the
trouble he had taken, when alas! a
question was asked which made
him tremble 'for the reputation of
his scholars. "Why does a dog
hang his tongue out of his mouth?"
asked the inspector, "Yes, ray

Diseases in Animals.
Public Health as applied to sani
tary conditions under which people
live has beeu frequently brought to
the attention of the people. Up to
this time very little has been said
regarding the sanitary conditions in
which domestic animah should live
Many of the diseases which serious
ly effect the human being are kept
' alive by domestic animals and are
transmitted from them to man. It
is natural, then, that these diseases
can not be prevented in man un
less they are prevented in the do
mestic animals that bring them to
man. Because of this fact some of
our common diseases are becoming
known as rural diseases, ff more
attention were paid to our domestic
animals, the animals themselves
would fare better, it would be more
economical, and some reduction in
human diseases would be brought
The disease that may affect both
man and domestic animals are in
fantile paralysis, which affects es
pecially the young animals, such as
chickens, kittens, colts, etc.; hydro
phobia, which most commonly af
fects dogs, and at intervals, horses,
cattle, hogs, cats, etc.; tuberculosis
which affects, especially cattle;
glanders, which affects horses-
especially; actinomyecs, which af
fects cattle most commonly; anthrax i
which affects most commonly cat-1
tie, but occasionally all cloven-j
hoofed animals; lock-jaw, the germ i
of which is in many cases a normal j
inhabitant of the intestinal tract of i
cattle and other domestic animals;
and parasitic diseases affecting cat
tle and hogs which may also be
transferred to man.

Lad and lassie brown as berries,
Romping gayly amid the rlovcr,
Lips as red as the juice of cherries
With childish laughter rippling
Bright eyes telling of guileless
Feet as light as a wind-blown
Keeping time to a merry measure,
Sharing the dawn of life together.
Man and maiden with ample graces
! Arm in arm through the garden
Love is tinting their blushing fines
Wave of joy from each bosom
Hand seeks hand with a tender
Re it sunny or cloudy weather
These in the fields of bliss are
Sharing the noon of life together.
Aged ones in the shadows waiting(
Lovers still though the strife is
Never a joy of youth berating,
Sighing not for the birds and
Looking now to the hand supernal,
Faith is theirs with no question
Death shall open the gates eternal
Sharing the eve of life together.
A Year's Railroad Casualties.
During the year ended June 30,
1912, on the steam roads in .the
United States 10,585 persons were
killed and 169,5,38 were injured,
an increase over the previous year
and a number somewhat in excess
of the average. That even a slight
increase comes with improvement
in conditions of equipment and
operation is indeed discouraging,
yet not all of the casualties by any
means were connected with the or
dinary conduct of transportation
and the year showed a decrease of
thirty-eight from 1911 in the num
ber of passengers killed.
Of the total casualties 400 rail
way employees were killed and
92.3C3 injured in so-called "indus
trial accidents," which include all
not connected with the movement
of locomotives or cars on rails, such
in fact as would be common to any
industry. The employers killed on
duty numbered 2920 and the in
jured 49,120, while the casualties of
employees not on duty aggregat
ed 315 killed and 959 injured.
Passengers to the number of 139
were killed in train accidents and
939 1 were likewise injured, while
other causes were responsible for
179 killed and 6995 injured. Tres
passers to the number of 5434 were
killed, 91 of them in train accidents
and 5687 were injured. 151 of
these suffering in train accidents.
Persons, other than passengers and
employees, not trespassing who ex
perienced casualties aggregated
1198 killed and 277 of the injured
suffered in train accidents. From

How Linoleum is Made.
Linoleum i3 so generally used,,
and is such a valued floor covering,
that it would be well to know some
thing of bow it is made. The in
laid linoleum made in this country
is chiefly made in separate strips or
blocks, according to design, and'
then nressed together. Much of the
imported is cast in a solid piece.
The foundation materials of which
linoleum is manufactured are lin

Danger of Pernicious Literature.
"Scarcely a boy is safe from the
influence of harmful and pernicious
literature" That is the statement
of Franklin K. Mailiiews. Chief
Scout Book Worm of the Boy Scouts
of America, who developing a
plan for the culture of boys by the
books they like best. He says: "I
have been perfectly amazed to find
what the true situation is as re
gards what boys are really reading
and the forces that are being used
hy private publishing companies to
promote the sale of their vicious
and mediocre books.
"I am free to say that under cir
cumstances as I have found them
out in the last few weeks, there is
scarcely a boy who is sa le from the
influence of harmful and pernicious
literature. In one of the very best
preparatory schoc Is in the country
I found these books being circulated
almost without let or hindrance,
and it was recently brought to my
attention that one of the very best
denominational publishing houses
is an agent for their distribution.
All these facts add several elements
to the problem calling for most ag
gressive action on our part"
