Organized for the purpose of con Barring mental health and to help raise the standards of cars for those suffering from or in danger of devel oping mental disorder, it is a. most commendable effort 'which the Na tional Committee and the Connecticut Society for Mental Hygiene are mak ing" to enlighten the people of Con necticut at this time, in this import ant matter. With the steady increase in the number who are being commit ted to state and private institutions because of mental disorder, it is per fectly apparent that the time is ripe when In addition to the treatment of those people already afflicted every effort should be made to check the in crease so far as possible by arousing a greater interest in the protection of mental health and th education of humanity in such conservation. It is for such a purpose that a mental hygiene exhibit and conference will be held at Woolaey hall in New Haven all next week with public meet ings on the sixth, eighth, tenth and eleventh with prominent speakers of national repute. Juat so much as It is possible .to ward off mental disease just so much better Is the nation over coming a serious handicap,, which it should be able to report on the de crease rather than on the increase. This campaign of education concerns everyone and as has been the exper ience in other states Connecticut can get great benefit therefrom. Conser vation is important in every avenue of human effort but no more so than in that which concerns mental health. PUBLIC UTILITIES REPORT. After a year's sorvlce under the new title It is an interesting report which the public utilities commission makes to the governor of its work. The re port indicates that there is a field for the service of euch board and in its broadened duties from those of the railroad commissioners, it has demon strated its worth and justified the leg islation which made it a reality. A year Is a short time for it' to get in touch with its field and the many prob lems which develop, but it has given such conscientious and immediate at tention to them as to win the appre ciation of the public concerning its service and impress upon them the fact that tt is Intent upon fulfilling its duty to all concerned. The first year has served to show up its handicaps and these it is ptj posed tn remedy by legislation through be recommendations which it makes for that purpose, i A number of im portant decisions and rulings have been made by the commission, con cerning the railroad, trolley and other public service interests of the state and it has manifested a determination to do all in its power to see that deaths through negligence shall be reduced to the minimum. Its year of service, . through ' its report, indi cates that it has been able to see where it can be of still greater value to the state and that In the .future. with the proper attention given to its recommendations it can better Took after such duties which come within its Jurisdiction. PHILANTHROPY. Many records were broken in speed, , altitude and accidents during the past . year and in the list must also be in- eluded that of philanthropic, giving, when ft is announced that a total of over 100,004,000 was ' disbursed by . people of wealth in the interest of charity and for educational, religious and sociological work, during the year. With this display of interest in the , welfare of those less fortunate than ths givers as to worldly possessions it is also noticeable that there is an in creased interest in the provision of help in the shape of pensions for those who have reached the age when It is advisable to retire from active lif a, and the providing of laws which win be in the interest of the poor man. Not too little credit must be given to the good which will result from the extensivs contribution to the objects for which the three hundred million - wOl go, but there is still a large class who need to bo given the Independence from charity by providing thsm the aieans of helping themselves. There are many conditions which need to be " jvercomo In the Interest of the dwwn ;. trodden which philanthropy will not reach, yet it is a commendable step . which everyone takes who, being pns ' sessed of wealth distributes, it whars it will do as much good as possfhls for their fellowmen, and which by proper application should gradBsliy operate to do ths greatest amemt of good to ths greatest number, Fhtlan. - threpy Is accomplishing great -things which would net ba possible withea I it. , . '.. ; MODERN FIRE APPARATUS. " As an example of modernizing a fire department Spring field la making great progress and tha merits ot automobile apparatus receiving a demonstration which is going to be of much - value to every city walch. has such, a prob lem to deal with. , Springfield is profit ing by the change and the results ob tained both as to economy and effi ciency call forth an ' enthusiastic re port from the board of fire . commis sioners. Though the department has added over a score- and a half more men the report shows a saving of over 1S.XJ for the year and so excellent has been the work of the year that tb commissioners feel Justified tn ask ing for the entire modernising of the department for the best Interests of the city. , It is constantly being demonstrated that the best, service at the least cost is-to be gained from the automobile It . overcomes - the' expensive keeping of the horses when they are used and it provides the quickest method of re spondlng and reaching a fire, in which lle3 the secret of efficient service In every fire department. Norwich has found that its one piece of auto sp paratus has fully demonstrated its worth and justified the experiment, ao much so that ' it has passed the ex perimental stage and made it evident that the equipment of the fire de partment of the future depends upon the motor driven apparatus. So rapid has become this development that not a few cities will skip over the ex pensive equipment where horses at one time gave the bast service but which has been outdistanced by the mojor. - THE VALUE OF HEALTH. The picture of health and robust and strong on reaching his seventy fifth birthday. Admiral Iewey gives advice which rings with common sense when he advocates, as many others in his class have done, the elimination of hot suppers and the living of the aim pie life for the attainment of old age in good health. It la the failure to heed such advice which leaves ao many marvelling at such, physical con dition which is retained by too few men. Too many are sacrificing their I health and Uvea ' in the gaining of wealth and the having of a good time 1 rather than giving attention to such ; golden advice until it is too late-. How ' much would John r. Rockefeller be willing to sacrifice now to obtain - she health which .Admiral Dewey pos sesses? Only a comparatively few do It now but scientists talk of a return of the day when men will commonly round out their centuries of life. To this the Omaha Bee says: - "It may come we hope It will but If so, it will be when men devote more time to living and less to get ting; when they realize that life is more than meat and the body than gold. Longevity will never come to the man or the race that burns the candle at both ends and defies na ture's laws." Man is persistent in going his own way, but it is a wise one who listens and takes the advice which is the result of experience. The value of health is not reckoned in money. EDITORIAL NOTES. 1913 is out in behalf of the work ingman. There are 53 paydays this year. For a patient under the knife Tur key is maintaining much aversion to anaesthetics. Certainly Venezuela has more estab lished reason for believing that Uncle Sam Is really her friend. The parcels post received an aus picious start even though it was en a holiday. In Norwich it 'was opened by a Rush. Whatever he did when he arrived Castro will not doff his hat to the Goddess of Liberty when he departs for Germany. It Is hard to start the new year with a holiday. Somehow it Is mors difficult to adhere to new resolutions on a holiday. It is always difficult to make most children see the need of calling them back to school for two days at the end of the week. The subpoena servers at William Rockefeller's estate are like a lot of hunters about a rabbit's retreat wish ing they had a ferret. .. The value of advertising is fully understood by the suffragists.

Turkey is playing with th allies. Perhaps she thinks if the war is resumed -she can win back the terri tory and reputation she lost. - J. Bruce Ismay has resigned as man aging director of the White Star line. This is an action calculated to. help instead of Injure the company. Now that the dynamite special has finished its run may there never be another. It is a glaring lesson of Justice triumphing over organized crime. Mailing a thousand brick about ths country by . an Indiana company as samples, if persisted in, will soon qual ify the postal clerks for cards in th hod carriers union. - In three counties In California 6S77 divorced persons have been married in nix years.

NELLIE'S COMPETITION -Jefford watched the big farm wagon rattle down the road and turned dis consolately . to his charge. It was .pretty hard that he should be cut out of the last picnic of the season Just because Nellie Carter's married sister chose to deelara that Bobby's life was too precious to be Jeopardized by wan dering into the woods-where as likely as not poison ivy lurked and where, at the very least, there was a chance that he would climh a tree when some one's back; was turned and fall threugh the breaking of a rotten branch. . Bobby Qermaine had been, every one's cross that summer. Day after day some excursion bad boon propos ed and some one had to stay at home with Bobby. Jefford often wondered why his mother did not remain behind with her precious offspring, but Mrs. Oermalne always had been one of the first to accept and for the sake of her pretty sister some one had volunteered to remain behind with the year oia Usually it had been Turner or B scorn, for they had been rivals for Nellie Carter's affections ever since the. sea son had opened, Jeftord had made good headway , in attracting Nellie's attention but this wa the first time he had sought to gain her favor by remaining at home with Bobby, and he would not have been left out of the party thia time had it not been that Nellie herself had made the request. It was piazsa gossip that Bobby was a sort of test as to the fitness of Nel lie's suitors, and that the masterful Mrs Germalne would throw tha bal ance of her favor to the fortunata man who had moat successfully filled the rola of day nurse to her young Hope ful. Jefford loved Nellie sincerely, but he had avoided those, tete-a-tetea with Bobbv religiously. Now he watched the rest of the summer party down the road and lifted his eyes Just in time to behold Bobby falling into the tiny foun tain on the lawn. He had to form his small body into an almost, complete circle to accomplish this result, but ne was successful, and a moment - later was dragged forth, wet , and wailing, to be sent upstairs tp his nurse to ee dried out. Twenty minutes later ha was on the lawn in a new linen suit, and Jefford raced across the Brass Just in time to prevent him from putting his bands on the mower. Jefford went back to his book ana Bobby crossed the road to the, pasture beyond, whence there presentlr arose agonized cries, and Jeirord arrived in time to haul Bobby over the fence, be fore his change of venue was assisted by a goat. For a moment there was a decided inclination to lay the young ster across his knee, but there came the realisation tbat he was his aunt s nephew, and beyond a mild rebuke there was no developments. - Through the morning Bobby man aged to get into nair a aozen scrapes, from which he was rescued by his guardian before serious complications arose, and only the ring of the dinner bell saved him from seeking to inter view the bull in the north pasture. The meat was comparatively peace ful, for the nurse girl was in attend ance to check any demonstration, but s.e conveniently vanished after the meal, and Jefford sat upon the porch with his after-dinner cigar and won dered how it was that Turner and Bas com had been able to get through an entire day without committing murder. , Half a dozen times through the morning he had been moved to take decided aetion, and had been restrain ed therefrom only by the thought of what Nellie would say, but when Bob by dug up from somewhere the rem nants of his Fourth of July stock ot firecrackers and proceeded to set them off in the henhouse, where a dozen hens were on their nests, Jefford's pa tience gave way. With a firm grasp upon the offend er's collar he led him toward the porch, while Bobby, with streaming eyes, developed an unexpected fertility of invention in explaining what he would say to bis mother and his aunt upon their return. IDEAS OF A PLAIN MAN Love is Beyond. Good and Evil. "Love," said Nietzsche, "is beyond good and evil;" which amounts to very much the same as the moaning of the Bible where it states that "love is the fulfilling of the law." The idea is that all our moral codes our rules of con duct and canons of righteousness are imperfect, feeble effortB to do what can only be accomplished by a primi- j tive instinct. For, as Bergson teaches, j alj philosophy gets around by and by j to" the conclusions of the instincts. . i n 'S Hi.nra a .;rei'.i ut'i,i natjl , grasped thia truth. For the risht sort of folks the sense or "ought" cannot be; gainsaid; and to live in daily conflict with one's feeling of duty is intolerable. But when we attempt to St our thoughts, words and deeds lined up by rule to agree with our moral convictions, we find the task hopeless. We are always breaking down. Human nature is al ways tripping us. It is a relief then to find ths reme dy in this very human nature Itself, in Its most prlmsval instinct, love. This world, and the heaven above it. is for lovers. Let us love, nobly, whol ly, loyally, gladly, and we have all the ten commandments, moral precepts and religious ceremonies in solution in our hearts- For such a love there is "no law. The Teacher. It makes no difference how much a teacher- knows. All examinations as to the teacher's knowledge of the facts of history or arithmetic or anything else are humbugs. The essential thing in a teacher ia this: Does he under stand the child, is he anxious, patient and willing to teach the child, and has he the art to mako the child want to learn ? Take such a teacher, with no know ledge whatever, for instanoe, of alge bra, and let him learn with the child, and he will teaeh better than the alge braic expert who does not know and love children. If I had my way I should have no examination, oral or written, of ap plicants for ths position of teacher; but I should have trial schools, the candidate should be put there, and we should ee what we should see. If he could teach, if he inspired children, if they prospered under him, he should be employed, even if he could not read nor write. If he could not teach, if he repelled ' and chafed the children, he sheuld be dismissed, even If ha knew the Encyclopedia Brtttanlea back wards. -. ' , Approves of Her Decision. . .

"What he would say to Mrs. Ger. mains was a matter of complete indif ference to Jefford, and for the moment ho was not to be moved even by the use of Nellie's name. On the piassa there was a short scuffle, in which Pobby held his own remarkably Veil, and thereafter the sound ot a .voice raised in anguish and the smack of a broad palm upon weil-strewae eiecn. "lr. Turner never spanked m,H sob bed Bobby. "Aunt Nell won't ilka you whn I tall bar how orwrt you was to me." - - "I know lt was Jefford amiable response, "but for your soul's salvation you simply bad to have that spanking, and you'll get another if I catch, you un to anv of your tricks again-" . That afternoon Peae , sat on the front piassa. with Bobby, and for the first time, since bis arrival on the farm the live, stoek spent a quiet afternoon. Jefford enloved the auiet as much as they did, but it was with a flushed face that he met the party on its re turn and received Mrs. ermaine's compliments upon the excellent care be had taken of the bay. "I hope he did not give you any bother." she gushed. ""Bobby is : an angel, but he wlU b wayward at times" " ' "Ne." said Jefford, quietly. "He was a little rough this morning, but we very soon came to an understanding and we have had a delightful afternoon here on the piazza." Turner and Baa com eyed Jefford with looks of unbelief, but Nellie's eyes snapped a aba ' watched the panto mime. They were - twinkling when, that evening, Jefford spoke simply of his love. "I know that I am net worthy" of you." . he admitted, "'but I love you. dear, and I want you for my very own." "Jim," she said softly, "before. I an swer your question I want to ask one. What was the understanding you, had with Bobby this afternoon r Jefford colored. - I don't mink toai is fair." he protested. I took htm in charge at your request." "Mr. Bascom and iCr. Turner declar ed that they navar had any trouble.' she said, irrelevantly. "I know that i poor Mr. Turner spent one entire aft- j ernoon on his hands and knees playing horse to amuse Bobby." j "Would you like to me caparing about on all fours," ha asked, "Just to keep a spelled child out of mischief T" "Still," she reminded, "a man often may ba Judged by his attitude toward childish innocence." He rose and faced her, "Nail," he said, steadily, "If I had been in contact with childish. Innocence all ths after noon I would ba all right, but when 1 am compelled to stand guard over a spoiled child and ha almost sets fire to the henhouse and half kills the en tire flock, thera is Just one thing that will meet the situation promptly, and that's a good old-fashioned spanking. That was the understanding I had with Bobby, and it was effective" "I asked you to stay behind 'with him on purpose," she went on. "I knew that' the others had been kind to him and had used only words of kindness. Not one of them ever thought of spanking him for my "WelI," declared Jefford. "if that's four idea of a love test I am afraid am out of It. I spanked him because he needed it, and I'm glad I did. I suppose I had better be getting on." Ha had taken half a dozen steps when a hand was lightly laid upon his "Jim." said Nellie, tenderly, "dent yo usuppose I realised what Bobby seeded T rm glad that you, at least, had the courage." "Then Bobby was not ytw testT he cried.
