There’s "safety first” in the one which states that it is always a girl's privilege to speak to a man first whenever the two meet This convention is the product of human ex perience; it belongs to the formal codes of all civilized nations: it was made by men them selves for the protection of the women and girls of their own tribes or families. And it is just as valuable a law today as it ever was In ancient times in oriental lands. Every decent man observes It. Ask your brother. If you have none, ask your girl churn’s brother.

Going back to the farm may some day prove a less Jovful experience than one anticipates. A farm, it appears, can be adapted to th# rules of decorative art. Recently an Indiana man outlined the new thought on the artistic side of farming. He described his own success. His big barns and outbuildings are all painted ; yellow, with white trimmings, the farmhouse is painted white, with yellow trimmings: the cattle have the same yellow color, being Guern- | seys; not a horse is used except he is yellow with a white mark on his head and white feet: the shepherd dog is yellow, with a white band around his neck; there are yellow-colored chick ens and yellow-colored squirrels. And it’s a safe bet that the dandelions and buttercups and mustard in his field* are always yellow and that the -quash blossoms and the golden sweets and the pumpkins fit his modest ; color scheme to perfection. But how appallingly different results might Ibe if on< of our leading agriculturists with money to spend for paint were to develop strong furturist or cubist tendencies. Fortunately, the dye situation has taken most of the color out of paint so that Bakst efTects in farming are necessarily postponed. From Another Point ot View i c - r - s - | A friend M.

ADCMNOTON BSUCC Author of "“The Rlddl* of Personality" Psychology and Parenthood." etc. The world is constantly becoming a better place in which to live. It Is becoming better i>ecau*e »he people in it are all the time crow ing wiser, more brotherly, more bu mane. This Is a statement «ome persons will be tempted to dispute. They are the persons who lament the passing of what they are pleased to call "the good old times ” In reality the good old times were times of hardness and brutality from which we are happily becom ing more and more free In order to appreciate ihls one has only s o read attentively the history of by gone epochs. Perhaps nothing brings out more vividly the actual comra*t between past and present than the record of ; the way in which children used to be treated To be sure, even today the treat, rr.em of the next generation is not always what it ought to be But it Is incomparably better than that of other days. Os this I was recently reminded when there came Into my hands Georg* l Henry Payne's unusual book. "The f’hild In Human Progress.” I warmly commend Mr. Payne's book to the attention of my readers, and especially to those who may be under the impression that the world is going backward. The story of what happened to children in the good old time*, as told in this book, makes pathetic reading. Its one redeeming feature Is that It is a story of gradual im provemenr from century to c*n*ury. Decidedly we are far removed from the days when, in the glori ous” civilization of Greece anil Rome, children by thousands wer° left by the roadside to perish, were sold into slavery, and even w*ro mutilated to make uiem more valu able as beggars. We are far removed from the The Keep Well Column HOOKWORM DISEASE.

Hence the organization of child saving societies, and the enactment of child-saving laws, to compel those who persist In extreme individual ism to get into line with the better sentiment of their fellows. There still is. alas, much to he done In this respect The exploit ing of children, even by their own paren’s. still is a noticeable fact. But it is a fact much less In evi dence than was formerly the case The rights of the next generation are year by year being more sedu lously conserved. This is as It must be. not only for the sake of the little ones, but for the betterment of the nation In years to come.

A dream has brought millions to many an Inventor. Some of the finest things in literature were in spired by a vision which came dur ing sleep. So do not be too hasty in your Judgment of the following account related by a roan who at tended a party and ate Welsh rare bit later than 11 o'clock: “1 had made a big cleaning.'* he said, “and under my pillow there was a stake of several hundred dol lars. I had a premonition that a burglar would come during the night, so provided what I consid ered ample protection. Besides an automatic, which 1 laid near my bead on the pillow. I leaned a sawed-off “hotgun against the bed. "There was but one entrance to my room. That was through a door which opened outside I turned off my lights and went to t»ed. but did not close my *ye« I watched that door. I could s*e far out on tbc landscape, which was bathed in moonlight. I was sure that the burglar would appear soon, and I was ready As soon as he entered the door I would begin to shoot. I could not miss. He would be be tween me and the light. I thought it over and planned every detail and then, in all calmness, went over it again. The horror of murder never occurred to me. I would be protecting my life and property. "Gazing so intently at th» door and concentrating on my plan must have hypnotized me. for with a start I awoke to discover the rob ber standing at the foot of my bed A gun which must have been about two feet long was leveled at my head. It was much larger than any revolver I ever saw-. But It. was different in another way. Under the cartridge chamber was a small al cohol lamp burning. ’*’Don t move. - he commanded; then pointing to his gun he ex plained briefly: 'The shells in this gun are redhot. When I touch a se cret release the machine will com mence firing a stream of molten lead I advise you to make no re sistance.’ "I put tip my hands and he took all the money from under my pillow end backed out the door, the green flame of his machine’s alcohol flame casting a sapphire light over the un masked burglar’s features. I did not move for a long time after he disappeared." The dreamer is willing for any ambitious Inventor to perfect the idea. He is not of a mechanical turn of mind. Price of War Medals.

The Old Gardener Say* That the early flowering shrubs should be trimmed as soon as they have ceased blooming, If they need any cutting. The common but wholly wrong way to trim Is to go around snd nip off the ends of the branches. The right way Is to cut out all th wornout stalks Just where they come out of the ground, thus giving the young wood a better chance. And the reason for trimming now la that these esrly blooming shrubs will soon begin to make their buds for nex’ year. SATURDAY, JUNE 17, 1916 Not All Bad. BY DR. FRANK CRANE (Copyright. 1915, by Prank Craoa) Few celebrated cases have shocked the public more than that of Dr. Arthur Warren Waite, who was recently con victed in New York for poisoning his mother-in-law and father-in-law. His lawyers set up a plea for “moral insanity,” on the grounds that no man could have been guilty of such a revolt ing crime, unless he were crazy. The jury, however, promptly brushed aside this excuse. The accused himself took no part in trying to establish his insanity. In fact, the most remarkable element in this af fair was the simple, downright, and open nature of his acknowledgment of guilt. He said, in substance: “Yes, I mur dered them. I am not crazy. I knew what I was doing. There’s nothing the matter with me except that I am just bad. I wanted money. I wanted the things money can buy, all those luxuries for which men go to the devil. I got caught. lam willing to pay the penalty. Go ahead and execute me. And get it over as soon as possible.” Dr. Waite may have been a weakling and a pervert all his life, he may have been a most reprehensible villain, but he illustrates the truth that every one, no matter how low, has in him some trait of nobleness. You cannot help admiring a man who owns up and takes his medi cine. The most disgusting thing about the usual criminal is his sniveling, squirm ing, and writhing to escape his just pun ishment. Generally everything and every body are blamed, same himself. It was heredity, it was environment, I was drunk or had a brainstorm, or it was so ciety's fault, or my mother’s, or some microbe’s. Asa rule, also, the offender when the noose is about his neck wallows in self pity. There is nothing of all this in Dr. Waite. Nothing in his life becomes him like his taking off. His confession was so straight, clean, and unwhimpering, that small wonder we thought him crazy. “In the country of the blind the one-eyed man is king.” He sinned like a cur, but at least he pays for it like a man. The candor of his avowal has in it some flavor of redemption. It bums like a bright flower in the swamp-bed of his life. Doubtless he was a villain, hut his final gesture is refreshing. There must be something manly th«ire. The stores of divine mercy can not l>e measured, and when he stands before the Judgment Seat on high who shall say that this last chapter of courage has not done something which, to the mind of the All-pitying, shall mitigate to son™ degree the distressful story of his wasted life? Another wastrel, who happened to be a poet, who lived long ago, one Master Francois Villon of Paris, expecting to be hanged with five of his companions, wrote: Brothers, that after us on life remain Hanlon >our hearts against us not as stone, For If »o pitv us poor wights you re faio, <;<if| shall the rather grant you benison.
