Illinois law makers favor elimin

Mars, the blustering god of war by

to term March a spring month, so far

Slates Baaiahed From Boston Schools.
The reasons assignod by the school
committee for the discontinuance of
slates, slate pencils and sponges in the
public schools and the substitution of
paper, lead pencils and rubber erasers
in their places are as follows:
First A light gray mark upon a
slightly darker gray surface is more or
less indistinct and trying to the eye
Second. The resistance of the hard
pencil upon the hard slate is trying to
the muscles, and the resistance to which
tbe muscles ore thus trained must be
overcome when beginning to write with
pencil or pen upon paper.
Third. Tbe use of slates, slate pen
cils and sponges is a very uncleanly cus
tom and loads to and establishes very
uncleanly habits. Boston Herald.
