A nor mal boy is worth $2,000 to the state, but a bad boy who is confined in one of the state reformatories is a burden and an expense to Kansas. If the boys who are In the Kansas industrial school could have had the right kind of treatment for physical defects or the benefit of a prescribed course in training in the home or school, they would now be a tremend ous asset to the state instead of a burden. I The expert advice needed in such cases is now offered by the school of j education in the University of Kansas. I A specialist has been placed in the j field to make a test of children who are backward or otherwise abnormal i and to recommend the course of treat- ment or instruction which will put the child on the road to useful citizen ship. Sometimes a simple operation like that for the removal of adenoids elimi nates irritation that might lead to serious trouble. In other cases a backward child in school needs to be nut in a separate class with other backward pupils where he can receive special attention. In some cases the trouble is in the home. Professor A. W. Trettlen. who is do ing this new work, has already in vestigated the advanced cases which have gone as far as the industrial schools, and is preparing to recom mend treatment which it is honed will correct the evil tendencies of many boys and girls. II. V. PROF. IS BREAD MAKER. Does This Work in His Home Because He Likes It. Lawrence. Kan., Nov. 21. The Univer sity of Kansas claims to have the best bread maker in the state and the man who honors the university with this dis tinction is a dignified member of the tamiity. W. C. Stevens, of the botany depart ment, is the breadmaking professor. When not making bread he is teaching and has the reputation of being one of the busiest men in the university. The sdrls of the domestic science department have made several attempts to get Mr. Stevens to lecture to them and demon strate his ski!! in utilizing wheat but their attempts have been fruitless. Professor Stevens says that he bakes the family bread because he enjoys it and Mrs. Stevens seems to have no ob jections in the least. It is said that no housewife in the world takes more pride than he does in turning out a batch of light, nicely browned loaves. 1 EDHOWEJS YOUNG Atchison Sage Declares Reform Should Begin at Home. We're Wrong in Attacking Cor porations, He Says. niS BALD SPOT 5S But Perpetual Youth Is Exuded From Every Pore. Pleased With "Farm Magazine for City Folks." Kansas City, Nov. 21. "Ed" Howe, erstwhile editor of the Atchison Globe, and now the ,sage" of Potato Hill, which stands over against Atchison, came to Kansas City "to see a couple of shows." Somewhere in his wander ings over the earth and "Ed" Howe stands well up in the ranks of globe trotters the man who writes "coun try town sayings" every day for some 4,000,000 readers, found the fountain of perpetual youth. He leaped into it feet foremost and submerged himself completely, except for a scandalous bald spot on the back of his head. That bald spot is 68 years old and looks it. All the rest of "Ed" Howe is somewhere in the thirties and acts like it. Being a gregarious animal and enamored of youth, Mr. Howe al ways brings a "bunch of young folks" when he comes to Kansas City to have a good time. With him were Eugene Howe, his son, to whom he has turned over the Atchison Globe; Mrs. Eugene Howe, who is happy, as brides always ne, jiiBs Aueiaiue Howe, nis niece, whom the author of "The Story of a Country Town" declares is the best housekeeper on earth, and last, but not least, that quiet little feminine philosopher, Nellie Webb, who is so ciety editor of the Atchison Globe. Came to Have Fun. The five young folks came to have some fun. They went to a vaudeville show in the afternoon. The man with the TS-year-oId bald spot was always the center of the group and at the playhouse led in all the laughs. Aft erward, the party returned to the Coates, where, surrounded by admiring satellites, the "sage of Potato Hill" re ceived visitors, indulged in personal reminiscences, told funny stories and from time to time exuded that's the very word the quaint philosophy for which he is famous. "No, sir," he said as he leaned back comfortably in his chair the picture of healthy, well earned ease, "there's no truth in that scurrilous report that I don't know what to do with myself since I turned the Globe over to the young folks and quit the dally news paper grind. Never felt better in my life, am trying to live up to that 'don't worry doctrine that I used to preach, and, better still. I'm running a little farm magazine for city folks and I'm saying In that magazine just what I want to say. I've been waiting to do it for forty years. I'm doing it, and I'm happy. Writes as He Thinks. "There's no business end to my mag azine and I don't have to worry about subscriptions. I don't have to make my readers think they're the best peo ple on earth, when I know that the average man is a good deal of a rogue and needs to be told so." This was, in the vein of one of the author's favorite characters. Parson Twine. When Howe talks like Parson Twine he always sits straight up in his chair, doubles up his fist and ham mers home his points after the ancient and accepted manner of the old time exhorter. "I tell you." he went on, "that all this reform business is beginning at the wrong end of the string. We're making a lot of fuss about reforming corporations and politics and railroads and what not, when we really ought to be reforming our selves. Tou know that the average man is more or less of a rascal, though he's more or less all right. Begin at Home Advice. "The place to begin this uplift business is at home. When we reform ourselves, we'll find that we've reformed all these other things. "I used to lie a little when I was a young fellow, but now I'm old enough to know better. What I'm telling you is the truth, though it may not be popular." Here Eugene Howe said he was hungry and the party moved on the cafe. The conversation went on uninterrupted, and at the table was revealed a glimpse of the methods that cause the "Atchison Globe .ghts" to be read from Sitka to Cal cutta. As to Ordering Dinners. EYES ON YOST'S IMl Will They Beat Nebraska by as Large a Score as Gophers Did. The elder Mr. Howe had ordered a dinner that was a little masterpiece, when he remarked:- "I always feel cheap when I order a dinner. The man who is good at ordering dinners is never good for anything else. I knew one man who could wade through two pages of menu French and know ex actly what the waiter would bring him. He was the most worthless fellow I ever met." Out came Nellie Webb's notebook. Here was the nub of a "Globe Sight." "These blue points are excellent," said Eugene Howe presently, "and I am one of those who never feel that he's been to the city unless he eats oysters." "The oyster is the criterion of the American's habitat," put in Miss Webb. "When the farmer comes to the country town, he always eats on oyster stew. When we who live country towns come to the city we always eat blue points. By their oysters shall ye know them." All of which was more food for the notebooks. So the dinner period passed. The Globe family talked of music and football, of the drama and duck hunting, of shop and philosophy "cabbage and kings." Then they all trailed laughingly down Tenth street to see another show. hTey had come to Kansas City to have a good time, and they had It. METHODIST EPISCOPAL BISHOPS FROM FIVE CONTINENTS 5 w fr4 fciLC fel 'k stk i .v- T, r flf ' . . 'S: , if:: I 1 I- " : v; -s:r?? elk? ' - I - The game which is attracting the ! most attention and conjecture in this neck of the football world is the Mich 1 igan-Nebraska contest at Lincoln Sat urday. An effort is being made among en thusiasts here in Topeka to get to gether a bunch of 18 to go to the game and a large portion of that number , have signified their intention. By or ganizing a party of 18 or more a spec ial sleeper can be engaged. The ex pense is less than first thought would j have it. ! It is considered quite an event In 1 Nebraska to get the great Yost ma chine to invade that territory. And the Cornhuskers never had a better team to entertain them. Nebraska never has been pitted against the mighty Wolverines and this is re garded as their banner year. Perhaps it was because forced out of the con ference and needed more games that induced Michigan to play in Lincoln. But the Yosts will have a battle on their hands just the same. Moreover, the result will afford a comparison of Michigan to Minnesota, or Yost's team to the best in the con ference which pushed him out. The Gophers defeated Nebraska 21 to 3, which led fans to believe the Corn huskers had not played to form. It is doubtful if Michigan can beat that husky, speedy team which so wallop ed poor old Kansas Just the other day by as large a score. And Nebraska's good coach, Stiehm. was planning for Yost the other day more than Kansas. His men played by spurts and then rested behind Gib son's toe. The second half was played largely by substitutes and the real strength was apparent only for a few minutes in the game. IT MAY BREAK "BIG 8 Minnesota Will Leave If SUchi)ran Does Not Come Back. Minneapolis, Minn.. Nov. 21That the University of Minnesota is plan ning to induce Michigan to return to the western conference is stated in university circles here. It is said that with Michigan back in the conference Minnesota and Michigan will begin a battle for a general reorganization which shall tend to better athletic conditions in the west If Michigan does not decide to re turn to the conference It is consider ed probable that Minnesota will with draw from the conference and refuse to meet the University of Wisconsin in athletics, as sentiment against Wis consin is strong as the result of the protest against Captain Earle Picker ing.

It Is always well to have something at " hand that can be quickly applied by which the redness of the hands can be temporarily hidden. An excellent paste for this purpose may be made by mix ing the following ingredients: Three and one-balf ounces of oil of almonds, one and one-half ounces of lanolin, one ounce each of white wax and sper maceti, one ounce of subnitrate of bis muth and one-eighth of an ounce of oil of bitter almonds. Melt the spermaceti and wax over water bath, then add the lanolin an oil of almonds, remove from the bath add the bitter almonds and when th oils are weii blended sift the subnltratt of bismuth into the oils, constantlj stirring until smooth and creamy. Thil cream is too strikingly white to bt used on the face, but may be apphe to the hands and arms whenever occa sion demands with tbe most gratify ing results. It is always best to maki the application after washing the hand! and arms wU with soap and tepid water.
