One is of an Eskimo and is snow white. In life this would be ruddy with rich blood. Another is that of a coal miner and is black. The other is of a town dweller and is a dirty slate gray, as are the lungs of most city residents. That's why consumption thrives in cities. One reason why Scott's Emulsion does so much to keep down consumption is be cause it helps to keep the lungs clean and supplies them with rich, red blood. It makes the lungs germ-resisting. If the body is run down and health is at a low ebb Scott's Emulsion will build it up quickly and permanently. SCOTT 4 BOWNK, 406 Pt*rl Btre?t, N?w Jork. CLASSES ALL ACTIVE PUPILS OF THE PUBLIC SCHOOLS COLLECTING COUPONS. A hurried trip through the thirteen di visions of the public schools shows an en ergetic intensity of work In the collecting of coupons that has settled down Into silence. Not a school but is quietly priding Itself on the number of votes It Is turning over to the building it proposes to have decorated with a Star collection of casts. Without considering the high school class, where interest focuses on the Business, Central, and M Street High Schools, the graded buildings are seen to be concentrat ing as If the 50.000 pupils were working for one building. "The fact is," a teacher said, "the pupils dv> undertsand that they are working for one Institution; they are not thinking merely of themselves in their own rooms, but of the gifts that are to come to the system." In buildings of the second clas?, six di visions are at work, the first, second, third, ninth, tenth, and twelfth. These divisions in general mean the center and heart of the city and pupils In the buildings of these sections are working for schools of the third class as well. The Last Group. In the last group the Ross, first division, the keys of which have only within the paHt week been handed over to the school offi cials, has so many friends that It stands a good show to have its corridors decorated as soon as they are opened and the rooms ready for ocouipancy. Gage, also a new school of the second division; Hilton of the third, Smallwood of the fourth, Jackson of the fifth, Wheatley of the sixth, Petworth of the seventh, Buchanan of the eighth, Ecklngton of the ninth, Sumner of the tenth, and Banneker of the eleventh are re doubling efforts to maintain or change their position, as reported In The Star of Sunday, December 2. The announcement that the last coupon will be printed December 17 lias made every pupil put on steam for the end of the race. * That the competition alone has not Inter ested the readers of The Star, but the sub jects in the collections as well. Is shown by the letter from Ool. John A. Joyce, which says, In part: "As on old-time classical scholar, I have ibeen interested In your effort to teach the school children of the District of Columbia object lessons of the gods and goddesses, and send you herewith a poem that may interest your readers." The poem which The Star's competition ?for school room decoration has evoked is as follows: Homeric Teaching. In midnight hour* within a realm of <3 re amp My spirit wanders o'er the mounta and atrearoa That ahlne within eeleatial, flowery apherea. Where pleasure reigns throughout eternal ye.ira. I wing niy w*y beyond the aun and stara And soar aloft through fiery field* of Mara, Where Jupiter and Juno rule tha realm And gieat Mlcerva holda the heavenly helm. With Herme* I delight to speed my way To meet Aurora at the dawn of day, And with Apollo and the muaea nine Entrance the aoul with tong and iparkllng win*. Forever let me reign with jnyatle god* And never know the grief of earthly aoda, But dream away the pasting hour* with eare And revel with the spirit* of the *tr! The god* that Homer coined shall ever reign And fill the world with Joy or penalv* pain.
