Six ntouths ago tho mother of
Percy and Charles find Leonard and
Daisy and Eugeno Nourso wont away
from their homo in Brooklyn. She
did not die. Sho Just went away,
although Eugone, tho youngost, was
not two years old, and Porcy, the
oldost, was. but 13. ' -
Let us all hope, for tho honor of
motherhood, that this mother did not
know what sho was doing when she
deserted her children. For It is dif
ficult to believe' that so bad-hearted
a mothor as she would be, if sho did"
know, could have borne and bred a
sou so faithful to the duty that lies
nearest as Percy Nourse at tho age
For their father had to be away
at work all day, and as their mother'
was gone, Percy did what he could
to take her place. He rpse early in
tho morning and got breakfast.
Then, when his father had gone to
work, he washed and dressed and
fed tho younger children and took
caro of them all; he mado tho beds
and swept tho house and went
through the day and all Its house
hold tasks until night came again.
And ho administered discipline
and gavo needful correction when
required. When little Daisy would .

the situation was not just what It
should be, and reported tho case to
a benevolent society.
So Percy Nourse and his flock
wore brought Into court, as if it were
a crime for him to do what ho could'
to take care of them, and for tho
Nourso family to hold together, as
best they could in selfhelf, Instead
of scattering in dependence. The
queer ideas somo people have of
what is "social welfare" then re
For, though Percy Nourso pleaded,
with little Eugene in his arms, that
ho had taken good caro of his young
er brothers and sister and they
showed that they thought so by their
childish grief at tho threat of separ

and neat attire wero mute witnesses,
it was decreed that they should be

At any rate, it Is clear that Percy
Nourse Is the kind of boy of which

State Engineer Lewis Is In receipt
of the act passed by congress March
15, 1910, amending tho Carey act In
relation to the withdrawal of public
lands by tho state for reclamation
and its provisions will assist tho
engineering department much in the
development of tho arid lands of the
state as It obviates a difficulty which
the department has had to contend
with in launching Its projects under
the Carey act.
The state under the Carey act has
entered into preliminary contracts
for tho reclamation of eight different
projects which will mean In the
course of the next few years .millions
of dollars to the state and the set
tlers who are availing themselves of
the provisions of tho act by settling
on the lands. Tho main difficulty
encountered In. the launching of the
projects was tho withdrawal of the
lands from the public domain prior
to their appropriation by settlers un
der the general land laws of the
United States. But this difficulty
will bo obviated by tho amended act
as it provides for -temporary with
drawals of the land by the state up
on application, and which will bo
valid for tho period of ono year, dur
ing which time tho engineering de
partment can make the detailed sur
veys and comply with tho other re
quirements of tho federal law on
the subject. '
