The March Wind.
1 am old Mister March Wind.
And when you meet me you need
your coat and muff.
Hut In some places 1 do ;ood,
I Stir Up the sap in the trees,
And I turn the wind mills so t'te
Dutch people can m ind their corn
And in some places 1 do harm,
I tear the roofs off of the houses.
And blow people's hats off in the
mud, and blow dust in their eyes.
Hut there Is good behind all that,
for when the people feel me thoy
know spring is coming.
Laurens Mill School.
High School of Experience.
We all meet in the school of ex
perience; and it Is ?h? school in
which most of pur acquisitions are
made and in which they are all tested
to their worth.
The failure, of education, so far as
it iias failed, has been thai i; lias bent
tl e mind hack too long from the very
facts with which i! must barn at
length to deal.
Experience, like our schools, has its
defects, and Its difficulties. The man
who has been taught by experience is
very likely to be overconfident. To
know how to do a thing to be able to
follow up the knowledge at one by
doing it successfully, seem so certain
and undeniable a power than its pos
sessor may well enough pride himself
Knowledge won in experience is
liable to be narrow. We must broad
en our though through and with our
fellowmen. Our own experience must
be corrected and completed by their
Looking on experience as a school,
the first requisite is that we should
take a liberal course in it, that the
studies we pursue shall bo fitted to
correct, extend, and sustain each oth
er. We may well fellowship each
other, and strengthen each other, for
we arc all in ono school, and what we
learn singly will be as nothing com
pared with the success of our com
mon effort to render the world as a
school of human life In terms of rea
Sarah Sexton of the Third Grade is
of course quite proud of the follow
ing letter which she has received from
Mr. G. S. Hoff of Portland, Maine.
The letter explaints itself:
I 38 Howard St.,
Mar. 17, 1912.
in a recont issue of The Laurons
Advertiser under the school column.
I read a nice little article on Long
fellow written by you, and thinking
that you might be interested, 1 take
[ the liberty of sending you a few
souvenir cards from the city where
Longfellow was born and lived.
Hoping to read more of your writ

The Neglect of Duty.
How often does it happen in our
school when a boy or girl is called
upon to perform some task, that he 01"
she either flatly refuses to respond
and gives no reason, or says. "1 can't"
Anyone can readily see that this
non-performance of duty Is a great
injury to the ?Mass in which it takes
place. The teachers who assign the
work nnd muko out the 'programs
share in this injustice. They have
spent no little time in the prepara
tions of the programs, ana '.t is not
fair to thetn that they should waste
their time and energy on this kind
of a child. It is not to the teacher
that the greatest harm is done, but
to the pupil who falls to perform his
work; and If he continues failing to
answer to calls he Is weakening him
self by neglect of duty and Is further
more giving a poor example to bis
Once there was a little boy called
Peter. One day Peter's mother call
ed, "Come, Peter and carry some
cheese to your grandmother." On his
way back he found a leak in the dike
and put his hand into it. They found
him in the morning half frozen, but he
kept away the flood.

Why Not Have Boy Scouts in Our
Today In almost every country we
are hearing of Boy Scouts. Boy Scouts
who are they and what do they do?
The Boy Scouts Is an organization
set on foot by Mr. Baden-Powell. The
idea first sprung up in the United
States, but the first organization was
formed in Great Britain not so very
This movement has spread so rapid
ly that now there are 2,000.000 of
these. There are ".00,000 in the Unit
ed States alone and the number is
They rave a regular constitution
and each boy pledges himself to
abide by it. They must do their duty
as they see it all the time. They must
do a kindness to someone every day
if the opportunity affords Itself. In
short they must be true knights and
true gentlemen. They must bo brave
Many heroic (b eds are done by the
Hoy Scouts such as saving the lives of
little children and old women, ever
turning aside to do someone a kind
ness. Why can't we have an organ
ization like this and with such a pur
pose? Let the boys only take hold
and we feel sure that sonn? one will
help us to carry out the plan.
