Tlie Imw of the Road.
The question of the "law of the
road" is causing a great deal of dis
cussion in these days of international
travel. In America persons or ve
hicles meeting turn to the right. In
soma European countries they turn
to the left and so it is that foreign-
ers coming to this country, are
greatly confused. Advocates of both
customs are positive that their way
is the best and have many arguments
to advance in favor thereof.
Tht?re are many confusing things
about the respective rights of pedes
trians ana vehicles and there is no
aouot tnat many accidents have been
due to misunderstandings of these
rules which are a part of custom as
well as of law. It is a safe thing for
pedestrians at all times to stick to
the sidewalks and to avoid getting
out in that part of the street that is
devoted to wheeled vehicles and
Over in France they are waking up
to the fact that some new regulations
sre needed and are adopting the Eng
lish rule of the road. One of a new
et of rules for regulating traffic,
which, however, will not come into
force for a year, ordeans that "drl.
ers of vehicles of every description
and those riding or in charge of do
mestic animals, must keep to the
left in cross!ng and to the right in
overtaking and passing." The speed
limit for motor cars will be abolish
ed and a very salutary rule has been
made for motor signals in towns,
says the London Express. "A mo
tor car must blow a deeptoned horn
and a motorcycle a shrill one. while
rinB ueiia iv nen mey i
signal pedestrians must
leave the road clear." ,
There Is no questian that there
ought to be such a revision of the
law of the road as will meet modern
conditions in these days of motor
cars and bicycles and which will con
serve the safety of the public and its
Mut Print Criminal News.
The most important service that a
newspaper can render the public is to
present the news of the day accurate
ly, fearlessly and without prejudice. If
It falls to do this it is not fulfilling the
mission for whicht was created.
Some of the news it must print re
lates to crime. There are a few men
and women who honestly believe that
a newspaper should exclude from its
columns anything that will shock sen
sitive or immature minds, or by sug

Recently a committee appointed by i
the American Academy of Medicine to
investigate the t.uject of "Suicide"
iejored that: "Suicide is a private
affair. There is no more Justification
for he publication of 6tich accounts
than there is for publishing other prt

tee finds that "alienists are practically
unanimous in the opinion that the sug

of suicide js a powerful factor in the
rausstion of filicides, amoug suscepti

the newspapers to refrain

There are many newspapers that
make a practice of confining their re
ports of shocking crimes to the least
possible space that will admit of a re
cital of the essential facts. They will
not employ a reporter who does not
tell the truth. No exaggeration, no
twisting of data to make a thrilling
story, is allowed.
The example of such newspapers is
to be commended and imitated. If

will be through the work of sane and

Bettie came singing down the garden
path. A broad brimmed bat shaded
her pretty face, and she carried a
small trowel; therefore It was evident
that this sunshiny morning was to be
devoted to the cause of gardening.
She chose to begin her labor in a plot
of ground close to the hedge and, aft
er digging vigorously for a few mo
ments, paused to contemplate a pack
age of small envelopes whereon gor
geous rosea were pictured iu profu
sion. A frown wrinkled her forehead
as she read the puzzling directions,
and she decided to seek information on
the subject by inspecting the flowers
upon the opposite side of the hedge.
It was this adjoining garden with its
riot of bloom w hich had inspired Bet
tie with the desire to imitate. She
stood on tiptoe and peered over the
hedge, but instead of the roses she ex
pected to see Bettie found herself look
ing directly into a pair of surprised

way. A stubby piie bung from the
corner of his good nutured mouth.
She nodded a smiling farewell to the
obliging neighbor and turned toward
the bouse. The boy grinned as she ap
proached. "Who's 'if this rime, Betts?" be
asked, with brotherly frankness. His
sister ignored the hidden meaning in
"Oh, Tommie," she answered entbu
slastically "that is Mr. "White, our

kind! He has given me these rare
seeds to plant, and we shall have

"There's another kind of young man
ont in front with an auto." Tommie
interrupted. "That's why I called."
It was not ontil the following morn
ing, when Miss Bettie again tied the
blue ribbons of her bat, that she re
membered thoee precious seeds. Where
had she left them? That was the
question, A thorough search of porch
and cupboards failed to reveal their

a rustic bench, while the girl, swinging
to and fro in her hammock, listened to
many tales of those same college days.
Bertie's eyes met those of her com

claimed. And the young man did not return
home by the way of the hedge. In
stead he walked slowry at Bertie's side
to the very door.
"May I come again tomorrow 7" he
entreated. "I would like to have a
look at the plant."
Tbe botanical student paid regular
visits each morning, coming via the
cedar hedge. The earth in one partic
ular flowerpot was kept soft and
moist. Its cover was raised to admit
the sunlight or fitted down as oeca
rion demanded. Bettie became a hard
ened sinner and demurely helped at
these proceedings, while the oats flour
ished under this unusual care. As tbe
student examined the first green
sprouts Bettie fancied that a troubled
expression flitted across bis face.
"Do they er always look like that?"'
she asked nervously.
"This may be a different species. No
doubt they will come up all right," he
slowly replied. And as the days pass
ed something more wonderful than
the rarest plant came to life in this
budding garden. The morning hours
slipped by all too quickly for these
two happy young people, so they
would drive together later in the day
or sit long upon tbe southern porch in
the moonlight. It was here that Tom- J
mie found his sister one evening after
their faithful neighbor had departed.

"So the girls tell me," her brother
answered complacently. Bertie sighed.

before her botanist lover should learn
of her deceit.
One by one the lights in neiyhborlDg
houses disappeared. Silence and dark
ness brooded everywhere. At last that
tantalizing spark could be seen no
more. As the loud closing of a door
vibrated through the stillness Bettie
arose and felt her way stealthily down
the stair and out Into the sleeping gar
den. She followed the narrow path,

bursting from behind a cloud, distinct
ly revealed the crouching figure of a
man. Even as she watched him, fas
cinated, he raised the prized flowerpot
high in his hand and cast It far from
him. At Bettie's startled cry he turn
ed quickly, and her frightened eyes
looked straight into those o' her lover.
"You!" he exclaimed, aghast.
"Robert," tbe girl asked wondering-
I ly. "what are you doing here?"
The man spoke desperately:
"I may as well confess. I stole into
your garden tonight with the deliber
ate intention of destroying that rare
plant which we have both been attend
ing for weeks. You see, it was all up
with me, Bettie, from tbe moment you
looked into my eyes, and in my eager
ness to become acquainted with you I
invented the first clumsy excuse which
occurred to me. Truth is I never was

ones that looked good to me. Then

"Robert." she demanded, "tell me the

He laughed shortly. "The allium (A.

Bettie laughed until tbe tears g lis
