THE CALCULATION OF LIFE.
Thou art aged, bnt recount.
Since thy early life began.
What may be tbe just amount
Thou shonldst number of thy span.
How much to tby debts belong.
How much when vain fancy caught
thee.
How much to the giddy throng.
How much to tbe poor who sought
thee.
How much to thy lawyer's wiles.
How much to thy menial crew.
How much to tby lady's smiles.
How mucb to tby sick-bed due:
How much for tby hours of leisure,
For tby hurrying to and fro.
How much for each idle pleasure.
If tbe list tby memory know.
Every wasted, misspent day,
Which regret can ne'er recall
If all these thou takest away.
Thou wilt And thy age but small
That thy years were falsely told,
And, even now, thou are not old!
—Jean Antolne Balf.

Physical and moral courage are two

thing about American
life is the disinterested attitude of the
people and their officials, alike, with re
spect to matters of obvious import
ance and concerning which there is
no controversy.
For instance, playgrounds.
It has been capable of demonstra
tion that establishment of play
grounds reduce* the delinquency
within the contiguous territory more
than 25 per cent, and beyond a balf
mile radius nearly 20 per cent, says
the Des Moines Tribune.
Does tbe fact have the effect of has

Does the fact that half the children

Tt Is easy to create interest in a

public officers follow tbe rule of do

our present ills.
The conspicuous feature of the
governor's speech was its absolute
fairness. There was not the slightest
effort at equivocation or evasion. Mr.
Clarke did not attempt to gain favor
for himself at the expense of the
legislature, boards of supervisors, edu
cational boards or any other group of
people. He merely sst forth the fact
that our system of taxing had not
only been crudw, but such laws as
were on Che statutes had been ignor
ed. The present executive council-^
was confronted with a mandate from!
the legislature in the form of a law if
requiring them to perform a specific
duty In the matter of fixing values for
taxing purposes. They wsre confront
ed with an order from the district
court of Polk county requiring that
they obey this law. The members of
the council had taken a solemn oath
to obey these laws. With painstaking
car a they proceeded to perform this
duty Just as fairly as they knew how.
No unprejudiced hearer who list
ened to Governor Clarke's earnest
and fair presentation of this case left Huston.
the room with th» slightest doubt in
his mind as to his honesty and integ
rity of purpose. Indeed1, It was very
clear to all who heard this magnifi
cent address that Iowa has a man in
the governor's office who measures
up to its dignities and responsibilities
in the fullest and completest sense.
Never before has the governor of this,
or any other state taken a firmer or
mora manly stand for rigid and fair
adherence to the letter and spirit of
the law. Tbe men composing tbe
executive council present an absolute
ly clear and clsan record. They did
everything that was humanly possible
to secure justice In tbe matter of
taxes. The governor frankly says
taxes are higher because of tha in
creased valuations. He says levies
should be reduced to meet thess con
ditions. H» gives tbe facts fairly and
without the slightest fear or favor.
Governor Clarke Is not a petty poli
tician. He is a big, brainy, broad
minded gentleman. He scorns to do
petty or small things to gain political
prestige. He Is going to do right as
God reveals th« light to him and
trust the people of the state. George
