Conservation Current Events
This material is furnished by the D. A. R. Conservation committee. Mrs.
Frank W. Bahnscn, Mrs. Charles H. Deere, Mrs. J. H. Kaufman, Mrs. G. El
wood MacGrew, Mrs. William A. Talcott and Mrs. Frank L. Wean are the
members of the committee in this state.
With the promise of the president to recommend conservation laws in
his message to congress, the assurance of the secretary of the interior that
his annual report will show that he is in the vanguard of the conservation
movement, and the knowledge that the secretary of agriculture and the heads
of the. various bureaus in his department are advocating and working for
conservation, it would at first thought seem hardly necessary for any organ
ization of women to take up the cause. But when we recall that within the
last month over half a million dollars worth of property has been destroyed
in preventable fires, and nearly four hundred lives have been lost in prevent
able mining disasters, it is evident that there is still work left for every
man. woman and child. For while the president and governors may recom
mend legislation, only congress and state legislatures can enact laws; and
the thorough enforcement of any law depends In great measure on the
hearty, intelligent cooperation of the people. In Europe less than two men
out cf every thousand employed in coal mines lose their lives each year. In
1907 in this country five men in every thousand were killed, and in 1908 the
death rate was 3.C. This decrease of the death rate was due, according to
those who have investigated mining conditions, to the-fact that the state in
spectors of Alabama, Pennsylvania and West Virginia have Incorporated
the recommendations of the geological survey In rulings which make a more
careful supervision of the coal mines mandatory. That the officials of the
other coal mining states be induced to follow their example Is one practical
application of conservation principles which should appeal to all lovers of
An object lesson in conserving resources Is to be found In Memorial Con
tinental hall, erected by the Daughters of the American Revolution. "This so
ciety has been in existence less than 20 years, and Its annual dues are only
two dollars (half of that being retained In the stateB in most cases), yet by
economy and husbanding of resources, aided by generous contributions, it has
erected a building with an auditorium second to none in the city. At the
recent meeting of the Laymen's Missionary convention, Glfford PInchot, the
chairman, alluded to the movement as the application of the conservation
principles to the ethical and spiritual resources of the Christian brotherhood
for the benefit of the millions outside the fold; and In introducing the pres
ident, said: "It Is my high honor to introduce a great layman, a strong ad
vocate of material conservation, as well as moral and spiritual conservation
and the author of the best defense of missionaries that has ever been ut
tered." But the keynote of all women's work was struck by Mrs. Noyes at a re
cent luncheon given by the Chicago chapter, D. A. R., to the president gen
eral, Mrs. Matthew T. Scott:
"Let statesmen save the forests, and citizens the streams.
And poets pen Immortal lines to crystallize their dreams;
The Daughters' conservation la work most consecrate
To keep alive tha patriot fires, and make the country great"
"This is our work, my sisters: To train the youthful mind
In patriot ways, and make our days greater than those behind."
In an address delivered before the Virginia D. A., R. State conference,
James C. Glpe, secretary of the Joint committee on conservation, after allud
ing to the faet that the conservation Idea la not new, as generally supposed,
but was endorsed as early as 1787 by George Washington,-called upon the
women to aid In seeing that the children of the country have a square deal,
saying: "If the mothers In the homes and the teachers in the schools win
Instill In the minds of the children the principles of conservation, the ulti
mate success of the movement Is at once assured."
Acting upon his sug-geBtion, a committee was appointed to confer with
the state board of education and Teachers' association for the purpose of In
itiating a movement looking to the Instruction of the children along these
lines. Similar committees have been appointed In North Carolina and other
pushed by the Patriotic League of the
Revolution, and a number of promin
ent men are enlisted in the fight which
Dr. Timby's friends say will be carried
on until the history books are set right.
Early Christmas Shopping.
A far-western paper, the Tacoma
Ledger, says some things concerning
early Christmas shopping which should
have the widest publicity. The gist of
Its article Is that persons1 who shop
early go about it deliberately. They
are not going to buy because they feel
they must provide presents of some
kind or character. They intend to take
their time in order to select something
particularly appropriate for the person
to be remembered. It la a much greater
compliment to receive a present that
has -been selected with deliberation.
One does not like to think that at the
last hour somebody rushed through the
stores to find something or another
that would "do," and finally in despair
grabbed an article and rushed away
home or to the postoffice or express of
fice with It. A good deal of the com
mercialistic spirit of the latter day
Christmas season may be avoided by
From the standpoint of comfort It
is well worth while to buy early. To
struggle with difficulty through a crowd
to reach a counter may put one in a
mood not consistent with the Christmas
season. Then, the clerks are to be
considered as well as one's own per
sonal convenience. With Christmas buy
ing distributed over a few weeks in
stead of a' few days, it is more satis
factory all around.
The children of two centuries ago
fell on stern times, if one may believe
that the spirit of family life was ac
curately expressed by an excellent
mother of that day who said, without
humorous intent, that her children
"loved her as sinners dread death."
There is little donbt that parental con
trol at tbat date was as rigorous as
this anecdote indicates. It is said tbat
when little Andrew Elliot, afterward
lieutenant governor of New York, ob
jected to boiled mutton his father, 'Sir
Gilbert Elliot, frowned.
"Let Mr. Andrew have boiled mut
ton for breakfast." commanded the
stern parent, "cold muttoD for dinner
and cold mutton for supper till he has
learned to like It." Youth's Compan

It beats all what odd questions reach
some of the departments of govern
ment in Washington. Not long ago
the treasury received a letter from a.
man wbo bad made a bet asking "How
many cents are there in a bushel?"
The answer was not easy to offer. If
the man had asked about pounds he
might have received a definite answer.
As it was. he got In reply a guess from
a clerk tbat "roughly there is some
thing like $320, or 32,000 pennies."

"My dear." said Mrs. Robert Gilbert
Parks to her husband at tbe breakfast
table one morning. "I have decided
tbat we must send Evelyn to Randall
Phillips college after all. It is tha
best school in tbe state, even if they
do have those horrid scholarships.
That is the only objection, for all tbe
other girls are an exceptionally exclu
sive lot, as I have been at pains to
find out. But she must go, though she

with a washerwoman's daughter, if
one should win a scholarship and be

So Evelyn Lucille Parks was entered

Delia Ilenning, daughter of tbe widow
of a poor little Methodist clergyman,
achieved the ambition of her life and
matriculated at the school on the
scholarship she and her mother bad
made every known sacrifice to win.
A3 tbe school year went by, though.
It did not take Delia long to find that
the hardly won scholarship did not
entitle her to social honors in the
school. She came to be known only
.as a "greaey grind." and when the
time came for the freshmen ro be
chosen for tbe college societies she
waited In vain for the longed for tap
on the shoulder. This was the great
est disappointment Delia had ever
known even In her cramped young life.
Delia did not live in the college
dormitory, with her own maid to wait
upon her. She was compelled to take
a small room In the town, fopwhich
she paid oat of her earnings by doing
mending, cleaning gloves, making
fudge and washing tbe hair of the
luckier girls who were given a good al
lowance by their doting parents.
Among her first patronesses was Eve

seemed Impossible for her to adhere
sufficiently to the rules to make her an
equal favorite with the faculty.
As Delia sat working in Evelyn's
rooms one afternoon after lecture
hours the latter came flying In and
flung herself down on tbe rug in front
of the flr.
"It's all over. Delia." she exclaimed.
"My doting parents will know after
tomorrow that I'm a disgrace to tbe
family, for I can never, in tbe world
pass tbat geometry exam."
Delia looked up. with censternation-
written on her face.
"Why. Evelyn." she cried, "don't say
that! Yon know you have failed to

Impulsively Evelyn threw her arms

down wearily to her sewing when
there came a tap at tbe door. It was
only her landlady, who had come In
for a chat, but Delia inconsiderately
greeted her by fainting.
The poor woman was panic stricken.
Hastily she got the girl to bed and
sent for the doctor.
"YVvaV be said, shaking bis head at

The doctor flounced out of the pres
ident's study without a word. As he
strode across tbe campus a group of
laughing girls sitting on the steps of
a building singing in the twilight
caught his eye. He stopped abruptly
and went over to them.
"Young ladles." he said. "I don't
believe you are as heartless as your

you. There Is one of your fellow stu
