The TttsKegee Edition of
BOOKER T. WASHINGTON'S
I3ook for the Children
Care must bo taken la ttid stories
we give to growing children that evil
is always overcome. Book friends aro
very real to boys and glrlB and In
fluence their character. There should
be effort and conflict In tholr stories
and daring enduranco and steadfast
purposo. Stories In which tho child
hero acts rightly are particularly
valuable, because what a boy or girl
has done appeals moro directly to the
child's own power. Ho feels though
ho may not express It even to him
self that what other children havo
done he can do.
"Improved" Bull Fight.
A bull fight In Toklo Is quite as
much excuse for a gala day as a full
fight In Madrid. Business men leavo
their offices, and women and children
their homes, to hurry to the arena.
Stripped of all the less exciting, or
less horrible, preliminaries which
characterize tho Spanish bull fight, tho
animals are brought In and sent at
each other at once. So the battle Is
shorter, and two or three moro fights
will follow In quick succession dur
ing tho course of an afternoon's "entertainment."

Test of Sobriety.
Many shibboleths have been devised
for testing sobriety. George Meredith,
who doubtless could havo evolved
some wonderful examples, had ho
chosen, calls them "olnometers, or
methods of determining the condition
of man, according to the degrees of
wine or beer In him." One of tho
most snareful of these Is the sentence,
"Give James Grimes' gilt glg-whlp,
and a cup of coffee from a copper cof
fee pot, London Chronicle.
Before Visiting Sick. 1

Neither should one go Into an affected
area when very warm or after & long,
quick walk, when the pores ot the
body are all open.
