Then it is because you are ignorant. Perliaps it is your partner in the quarrel who is ignorant, hut someone involved, according to S. F. Shorey, who has written a book on human harmonies, is just plain ignorant. The person who is never at peace, who is always at war, and who finds happiness with no one, is either hide-bound to one particular set of ideas, or has none at all which he can dispassionately exchange with his neighbor. An educational campaign covering the entire globe is the plan of this author for remedying the present state of affairs. By FLORENCE E. YODER. Some one once said that the only way to get away from the discords of life was to be a hermit. Others more pessimistic aver that death is the only means of obtaining jcace. S. F. Shorey, however, who has lately written a book called "Hu man Harmonics and the Art of Mak ing' published by Desmond Fitz gerald, Inc., of New York, holds that since all discords have the common cause. Ignorance, that they can be adjusted finally by the common rem edy, education. "The great need of the world," he says, "is an educational campaign covering the entire globe." The au thor grants that the world has never seen an age of greater mental activity than the present, but that this activity Is loose-running, wild, Indefinite. He speaks more generally of the practical discords of everyday life. Intimating that, with them adjusted through education, the larger ele ments of life will automatically Etralghten themselves out into some, semblance of order. In this manner we come down di rectly to his statements concerning domestic unhappiness, in other words, to the unhappy state of af fairs known as "the family row." This subject is treated of In one separate chapter, but it runs as a thread through many which are merely an elaboration of the details. Quarrels, Mr. Shorey observes, 'arise from the fact that there is but little knowledge held in com mon. He says: It often happen that two persons hold ing: precisely the same opinion, concerning a. Klven matter, believe that they ciffer entirely in opinion when in fact thev dif fer chiefly in expression: It is a matter of the use and understandlnc of words. The average person is extremely limited in his power of verbal expression, and In this stress of life, he Is either unable or Jlnds little time to understand others, even when their thoughts are most clear Iv expressed. Knowledge elves understanding and. with this, one is enabled to see the trls lakes of others, their careless remarks, their unfair statements, even their un truthfulness, should neither be too qulck Iv nor too- haiehly criticised. But. on the contrary, they should be jriven time and led by kindly and adroit Questioning to correct their errors. This would seem to be a panacea for all domestic troubles' since they eo often arise from statements which arc made in sheer Ignorance. But who is willing to admit that he or she Is ignorant? The plain matter of personal temperament and plain ordinary rage, idealistic Mr. Shorey TIMES BEDTIME STORY THE JAM tCopyrlRhU 19H. by F E Yodef.l W HEX Mrs. Tabby finished making her jam for the winter she did not know what to do with it. It did seem impossible to keep the'children cut of it. At last she decided to put it in a closet where there was no key. put a sigi "Jam Closet" on it in plain letters and let all of the children know where it was. She put them on their honor, and each kitty was hupposed to know that he could not go to this place Without permission. Now Mrs. Tabby was very careful to teach her kitties never to tattle on one" another.

In the matter of married couples ho comes very near to a sorely con tested point. The average husband and wife, soon become dull and prosy and un interesting to one another, he feels, because each had exhausted the possibilities of the other to serve in the entertaining and instructive way demanded by the natural unfold ment of their lives. Most married pairs, he thinks, have "talked themselves" out." The fact is they are out of ideas. There is much moie.of pertinent conversational advice in this volume which would prove itself of value to any human being, married single, or even already happy.

Peter Grogan & Sons Co., The Daily Editorial For Women Unionized School Teachers. By FLORENCE E. YODER. A school teachers' union affiliated with the Federation of Labor in Cleve land, has lately been formed. The little story of their adventure is amusing in the extreme, and will be or interest to every school teacher who has felt the need of some sustaining body in time of trouble. The mother-teacher question since it has so many women on both sides of he fence, would be,, perhaps, more Justly settled by the women teachers them selves, and, according to their needs ana ideas than by violently prejudiced offi cials. This settlement could be made pos sible through the formation of a union. Here's the way to do it, provided, of course, we "have the proper kinds 01 courts. In the case of the Cleveianu teacnera the trouble arose of a raise in pay. tendent announced in the organization they ,' persisted in the vf.k, quite the icr move for he whose word Is law proper and -.'gospel.

When the names of the, reappoint ments" were made the names of six of the ringleaders were not on the list. The superintendent announced that they had been -dropped "for the good of the service." Then the superintendent was put on trial for violating- the injunc tion of the court and was sentenced to a fine of $500. and to ten days in jail. This, 'however, only followed an opor tunity siven him to recindjiis action In dropping the teachers and" his re fusal to do so.

B., M. A., M. D. (Johns Hopkins). T HE disease we tall a 'cold" has For it is the man who is most In the. cold, and whose body knows what cold Is, who Is least apt to take cold. So the golden rule for those who would avoid colds Is: Get acquainted with cold.. To get acquainted with cold, sleep in a cold room, take a cold bath every morning, stay outdoors as much as" possible; don't "bundle up;" wear moderately heavy clothing. Inasmuch as colds are "catching," there are other rules relative to colds that boar on our .relations with other people. Keep away from people with colds as much as you can, and especially avoid people who have recently had pneumonia. Keep away from crowds, espe cially crowds gathered in hot. badly ventilated places, such as closed street airs, crowded little halls, theaters and the like. FRESH AIR BEST MEDICINE.

And deep breath ing means breathing -that way, all the time, not merely one or twice a aay when you happen to"think of It. The ideal deep breath is the kind you get once In a while when'ou yawn, and should give you much the sams sense of pleasure that such a breath Si No one can- sleep In- a hot poorly ventilated room and 'be in condition to resist cold contagion. You're safer In a room with' the mercury at 30 than ln one with the mercury at 80. In the win ter time the temperature of the sleep ing room should never be allowed to go above 60. Forty or 50 is better than CO. In a bed room with but one window, raise the window slightly at the bottom and lower it correspondingly at the top. If there are more than one window, raise one and lower another at the top. When windows are on but one side of the room a transom should be opened or a door left ajar to help" the circula tion of air when the wind is not blow ing directly on the windows. Draught For a Disease. Remember that even In the coldest weather, to secure perfect ventilation there must be a constant movement of air through the room.
