Use of Vacations.
Most vacations which fail are tin

Is furious that In a matter hfrp In
dividual needs anj personal prefer
ences p.re r-o Importfint. observes
Youth's Companion, the final decision
should often be allowed to rest on
other grounds. For the groat ma
Jorlty of men and women wlia work
but who have a vacation, two weeks
represent the limit cf time which they
ccn devote to rest and recreation.
That is only one-twenty-sixth part cf
the year, and most person ncd all of
It, and need to use It In the wisest
way. What Is (lie wisest way? No
one hut the person himself ran tell;
nd hence the folly of allowing one
self to be overinfluen'ed by the advice
cf others. One cf the we?kly maga
ilues lately contained accounts of va
cations In camp, in an automobile, on
a bicycle, cn foot. In a canoe, In hunt
Ing with a camera, in reoins Fifth
avenue, and In searching for wild
flowers. Each of the articles Is charm
Ins reading, chiefly because the writer
had what he was after rest, recrea
tion and a good time. The reader may
easily be misled into thinking that
the charm belongs Intrinsically to the
particular kind of a vacation which is
described. It does not It belongs
only to the exactness with which the
vacation fits. The wisest thing one
can do is to say to himself: "What
Is it that I should most like to do?"
And If it fall within his means, and If
he has only himself and his own pleas
tire to consider, do that, regardless cf
whether anyone else would enjoy it,
er whether anyone else has ever done
it. The bobby or diversion to which
one gives his spare moments during
the rest of the year Is often a wise
guide. It requires courage and com
mon sense to disregard conventional
conceptions and half-formed plans,
and to follow the inclination cf the
moment; but the reward is nearly al
ways a happy and restful vacation,
and not infrequently at little cost.
Need of Americans.
Tnder the modest heading "SuIU
Over Small Sums" the Boston Tran
script declares that the great principle
cf fighting for rights, no matter what
the immediate material thing at stake.
Is a thing that the American character
needs to assimilate. The Transcript
fays: Highly Important decisions
have been based on Issues Involving
very small money consideration?. The
supreme court of the United States last
winter, gave a good deal cf time and
Testarch to a cause carried before it
cn appra! Involving only $24. A rail
road was. In this case, the defendant.
It owed one of its employes, a train
hand, this sun, which was attached
end collected by one cf his creditors.
The employe contended that the money
was rtili due him. and carried the
case up to the highest tribunal in the
land. Our own famous Chief Justice
Shaw wrote one of his most luminous
expositions of legal principles In de
ciding a case which turned on the
ownership of a bull calf. It Is related
that the bar snickered at the frequent
repetition cf the phrae "the said bull
calf," and the chief Justice rebuked
the laughing lawyers by saying:
"'Gentlemen, you do not reflect what
a bull calf may be to a poor family!"
Hottert Drowning went to law over the
value of one bottle of wlue, on the
j?reat principle that be would not be
swindled for ha!f a crown if he could
telp It. The "kicker- Is often the
subject of ridicule, but kickers have
helped the world along at times.
Given a great, scenic environment and
tb "kicker" becomes a historic! per

adapt the idea to business affairs is a

MAYOR ROSE IN CONTEMPT
Saprene Court of Kansas Assessed
His Fine at $1,000.
Had Rem Onatrr from ORIri lu
Kama I Hy, Kan., for Vio
lations of Un.
Topeka, Kan. The supreme court
of Kansas handed down an opinion
Friday morning in which it found W.
W. Rose, mayor of Kansas City, Kan ,
guilty of contempt for holding office
from which he hud been ousted by the
court. For this breach of respect to
the highest legal tribunal In the state
the court fined Mayor Hose $1,000, to
be paid within 20 days. If the fine
Is not paid within that time nose Is to
be committed to the Shawnee county
Jail at Topeka and be kept there uutil
the fine Is paid.
The final paragraph of the opinion
in which the judgment Is contained
Is ns follows: ' The contention that
to deprive the defendant of the right
to hold the cfT.ce for the remainder
cf the term Is to take away a rtuht
from him without du-? puctss of law-
Is not well founded. Hp is only made
to suffer the penalty Imposed for mis
conduct in office and violating the
law. The office is created by statute.
The grounds of forfeiture are (In
scribed by statute and tho statue pro
vides the method by which the forfeit
ure Is declared. He has no vested
right to the office, and especially
none which may not be forfeited and
lost hy misdeeds. Having violated
the statui-e he must suffer the penal
ty which the statute presci'bes. Hav.
Ing disobeyed and violated the judg
ment lawfully rendered tnd still In
force, he Is In contempt this court
and will therefore be iidjudc'od to pny
a fine of fl.Ooo and the costs of these
proceedings, and If the fine and costs
are not paid within 20 days he Hhaall
lie committed to the jail of Shawnee
county until they arc paid."
