SOME INTERESTING WAR STORIES Correspondent of tlie A. P.) London, Jan. 23. ThPro aro cer tain stock war sto.les which persist in cropping up unilor new guises nt regular intervals, and which find wide credence among some clusses of people who believe everything that Is printed to the descrldlt of England's enemies. One of these stories is about a German goveruess In whoso trunks bombs were discovered wrapped In cotton. N?ver has such a case been reported, to the police, yet the story bobs up time and again. Punch has suggested tint It would be Interest ing to gather her various employers around the same table. Another Is the postage stamp yarn. In this, the writer, a British subject detained In Germany, writes a rosy letter to friend In England, tells how he is in the camp and cal's his friend's atter.tlon to the curious pos tage stamp tffixed to tho letter. The friend eoaks off the stamp and finds written in a minute hand un derneath, "Don't believe a word of what I have written It Is all lies." The latest version of this yarn comes all the way from Nova Scotia. The story of the Belgian Joker pre tending to betray & grave military secret to the German commander at Ilrussela, who thereupon placed a permanent guard at the aquarium, has been bandied back and forth be tween the British ana French papers for two or three months. The Bel gian's story was that tho pikes In the aquarium had been trained to carry messages down the river to Antwerp. Only the other day a London after noon daily paper printed the story as translated from a provincial French contempoiary. Statesman.

MORGUS & SON "QUALITY, QUANTITY, PRICE." Last summer, for the first tlmo. a i few of the larger of New York City's department stores yielded to the urg Ings of the Consumers' League of that city and closed their doors all day Saturday throughout the hot months. The half-day which they had formerly claimed had profited them little four hours or for four and a half, on the dullest morning of the week, when many of their customers were out of town for the week-end and the rest un willing to shop In the morning they could well afford to give up the little trade that re mained, and cut down the lighting bill, and pther running expenses. The innovation meant for some of the stores a real saving. What did It mean for their clerks? In re sponse to Inquiries from outsiders interested In the movement for Sat urday holidays, says the New York Evening Post, representatives of the League visited the stores In question and Interviewed many of the clerks, with the following result: Tho answer was uniformly ap preciative and enthusiastic. One clerk In the suit department of one of the stores said the two days off a week were "just like another week's vacation." "It certainly was a treat," declar ed the clerk In the stationery de partment of another store. " You couldn't hope for tter hours than that." "It made the time go so quickly," said another saleswoman. Several remarked upon how well find rAHto1 they felt. A clerk of a Fifth Avenue firm said: "You have no Idea what a dif ference those two solid days off make. I have been here six years, and I never felt better able to begin tho year's work than I do now." One girl said that she could start In tho day's work with a different spirit when she knew that the hours were not going to bo fatlgueing. The time to herself" seemed to be tho Important thing with her. "I really enjoyed working this summer. Tho tlmo passed so quickly, and I folt so rested nnd unhurried," she remarked. Another salesgirl assert ed that the clerks as a whole felt much hotter rested, and went on at their work In a very different spirit. This "different spirit" was quite manifested in every girl Interviewed. One girl In the wulst department summed It up when she suld: "I'm mighty lucky to bo working here. You know. I feel now as If I would stand by this house through any thing. A store that treats Its clerks as this Btore has In the past summer deserves something In return, and 1 for one am going to give it the best service I can. Those two days off were lovely.' In one store a salesgirl declared that tho store had gained more than it had lost, for little business was done In the half-day during the sum mer anyway, and for tho llttlo lost in trade the store had gained much In loyalty from the clerks and In having the entlro force rested and reudy to start work with enthus iasm. Literary Digest. SCIENTIFIC MORAL SUASION Alt children may perhaps be roughly divided in to great cl-cses the spanked and die unspanked. Stmlllarly, most parents belong oither to the class of spankers or to those who depend upon tho spoken word and tho reproachful eye. For i long timo people have taken sides -irliltrarlly on this matter. The opinion of the child was not consult ed, and his physical, mental, or psy chological make-up was often left out of consideration entirely. The ulult p.-ejudico In the matter decid ed it definitely and for all time. To all this, tho Spokane Spokesman-Re view avers, a change Is likely to come: With the object of ascertaining what children think about right and wrong, 3000 children whose ages ranged from six to sixteen wero asked what they would have done in this supposed case. "Jennie had a box of paints. While her mother was out she painted the i hairs to make them look nl:e for Tama. But her mother took her paints away nnd scut her to bod." The replies full Into three main classes. Tho youngest children In proponderlng numbers reasoned that Jennie had been naughty, had In flicted Injury or sorrow upon her mother, and should have pain or (I .nui ko visited upon herself. C'hlld on of Intermediate age argued that tlio paints should bo taken from J'nnie, bo withheld uutil sho knew enough not to do more mischief with 'hcr.i, and that she bo warned not to repeat the offense or be threaten ed with penalty for doing so. The oldest children urged that tho moth er should have reasoned with Jennie and have explained the uso of dif ferent kinds of paints and tho prin ciples cf Interior decorations. The revealing of the spiritual growth of childhood Is startlingly suggestive, and the reversion of the individual to the childhood of the race Is not without significance. The youngest, those in whom the mora) instinct is awakening or aborning, think predominantly In terms of re venge or retribution. To tho more developed child the prominent Idea was the prevention of future wrong dcing The most adranced children, however, showed more concern for Jennie's moral welfare than with damago to property or punishment for transgression. The suggestions of theso children recognized Jennie's good Intentions and symathlzed with her ignorance and her need of instruction and guidance. The practical application of the experiment appears to bo fairly ob vious. The youngest children com prehend tho logic of retaliation and nay be punished for offenses through penalties and privations. Children cf ten to thirteen can be handled through mothods that should prevent repetition of wrong doing. The oldest ch'ldrcn should bo reasoned with. -Litorary Digest. NKW8 OF TKKMfOI.M. Mrs. Wm.

In providing for enjoyment the Mmrrh uea one of the greatest moth- ods by which human society bo de veloped. Association is nover secure until It Is pleasurable; In play tho In ilnrtlva aversion of one person for another Is overcome and the social mood Is fostered. Play la the ouitf educational aguuey iu rural commun ities sud In the payday of human childhood social sympathy and social . -u...1 Aa Iniltvlilllmla nauiiB in - , come together In social fathertnes, , their viewpoint la broadened, tnair Ideals are lifted and Anally they con stitute a cultured and refined society. It Is pluln, therefore, that 'the ehurch which aims at a perfect so ciety roust use tn a refined and ex alted way the essential factors tn social evolution and must avail Itself of the universal instinct for play. I! the church surrounds Itself with social functions which appeal to the young sinoug Its membership, U will fill a large part of the lumuntable gap in rural pleasures and will reaa the richest reuari by promoting a higher and better type of manhood and womanhood. WANTKI) KltkKH We will buy your ft.v test satisfactory. or Wrlto or phono. a0er ,3 Social Needs Imperative. The average country boy and Itrl have very little opportunity for real enjoyment, and bave, as a rule, a vague conception of the meaning of pleasure and recreation. It Is lo fill this void In the lives of country youth that the rural church has risen to the necessity of providing en Uriel q ueut ss well as Instruction to I la membership among the young. The children and young ' people of the church should meet whun religion Is not even mentioned. It has been found safost for tbum to meet fre quently under the direction and care of the church. To send them Into the world with no social training expose them to grave perils and to try to keep thvm out of the world with no social privileges Is sheer folly. There la a social nature to both old and young, but the , iclal requirements of the young are Imperative. The church must provide directly or Indirectly sumo modern equivalent for the husk ing ben, the quilting bee and the sing ing schools of the old days In on y or another the social Instincts of our young people must have oppor tunity for cxpreaslun, which may Uke the form of clubs, parties, pic nics or other forme of amusement One thing Is certain, and that Is that the church cannot take away the dunce, the card party and the theater unless It can offer In Its pise a sat isfying substitute In the form of more Dleaslug recreation.
