The tattler went forth at the
break of duy and took all the
scandal that drifted that way;
all the gossip and lies, all the
censure and shams, all the sly
inuendoes, the knocks and the
flams, then mixed in some
venom to keep them alive, and
scattered them broadcast to
flourish and thrive. And they
spread like the brambles, de
structive and wide, choking
all the tweet roses that grow
by their side; for gossip,
though idle, is thrifty and
strong; and a small word, well
planted, tuny cause endless
wrong. The tattlers belong to
no tribe, class or clan; they in
fest every rank in the species
of man; they pOiaOB the world
with their venomous daits,
they reek with the life blood of
innoecvit hearts; they ought to
be banished to some lonely isle
where none but themselves
would be hurt by their guile
All things in creation, no mat
ter what grade, are thought
for some purpose or use to be
made. Hut why is the tattler?
'Twould lighten our woes if
we'd haggle such (lends with

Our knowledge of the causes of in

uniformly, but by leaps and bounds

and new Incentives have arisen. With

there was a rapid expansion i:i our
knowledge of infections The discov-
ery that Texas fever was transmitted
by the tick started extensive studies
on the relation of insects to the trans
mission of disease. The demonstration
that certain diseases are due to germs
too small to be seen throng the mic
roscope rapidly led to a study of many
bscure diseases and cleared away
much of the confusion regarding them.

related an account of a prescription
Riven to an exceedingly stingy farmer
by a doctor The farmer took the
prescription to the druggist. The
druggist told the farmer that he cou!d
not fill the prescription and said to
the farmer: "If you will read It your-
self you will see why." Whereupon i
the farmer adjusted his glasses and
read to his astonishment:
"One hired girl to lie taken as s:o :
you can get her, and kept constant-
ly on hand thereafter.
"A few new dresses that the wives
of your hired men wouldn't be
ashamed to wear, nnd a new hat and
wrap to replace those you bought her
last thirteen years ago.
"All to be tinctured with at least
as much daily consideration as you
bestow upon your cattle."
i O-
state Superintendent R. II
is mailing out letters to the various
teachers and school boards. In part
he says: "We can't afford to he (are
less or indifferent in our work; we
i an t afford to treat the boys and
girls as if they w.-re common things;
their lives are tender, more so than
the young plant in the springtime, and

, early in Ufa is equally as destructive
'to the child as the frost is to the
plant. I am linorul enough to believe

given proper treatment: I believe that
'seventy - five per cent of the hoys and

"Perhaps it woird be better to leave
out the word 'try' because the mere
suggestion of 'attempting' leaves yii
sort of loophole for not 'doing.' On
the other hand, any one of those re
solves involves a pretty big contract
for most of us to live up to. You can

Women of Paris Submit a Long List
Beginning With Egoism as the
Root of All.
A Tails newspaper, the Femlna. put
the following question to Its women
readersnreently : "What do you Miink
classing them In order of import
ance are the ten principal failings 01
The majority of the women said
egoism was man's most besettirig sin
And what is egoism? It is simple and
unadulterated selfishness; and (hat Is
man's chief fault, according to the
women. And then these faults come
next in the answers infidelity, jeal
ousy, intemperance, cowardice. That
Is s -selfishness is the taproot of
Mono all. They are all logically con
following tl.eso five leading sins
onio, in the women's answer., immor
i.lty. despotism, temper, stupidity and
ilteness. It will be interesting to fo!
ihv these answers In grading the sins
ind pursuing the gradual descent?
from egoism to laziness.
It will be found that they preserve
a natural order. For instance, Infidel
Ity follows egoism ; cowardice fdihswi
ntemperSDCej despotism follows im
morality, and idleness is just behind
-ifopldliy. The answers are interest
ing and just. The women know more
about men's fallings than men do
I'.iey know more than they let, on.

To Prevent Screws From Rusting.
The best method of keeping small
lews, brads and tacks from rust
:ig Is to place them In small wide
louched bottles, tightly corked. The
lottles should be perfectly dry beforo

I had been working In a mercan

an ofBce where the owner of the
business took an interest in the work
of every one, where there was good
discipline, absolute order, and cer
tainly the best of system. The own

run. The clerks seemed to have no
active knowledge of the business,
and neither did the employers. As I
