Book friends are very real to boys and girls and in fluence their character. There should be effort and conflict in their stories and daring endurance and steadfast purpose. Stories in which the child hero acts rightly are particularly valuable, because what a boy or girl has done appeals more directly to the child's own power. He feels though he may not express it even to himself that what other children have done he can do. When Your Eyes Need Care Try Murine Eye Remedy. No Smarting Feela Fine Acts Quickly.

The young need to be taught that although there is sometimes a pleas ure ot the senses in committing sin, it is inevitably followed by remorse and punishment. Crime, remorse, pun-Vnt form an inseparable trio. On the other hand, while, it is often hard to do right, the sense of satis faction, self-respect and self-tfontrol that follows right action is worth all the effort made. not 4ra will find ITn, Wlnrtlow's Sootalaj Syrup tfe best remedy to uso 'or their children faring .ie tcothiug jeriod.

NO CHANCE FOR "CLIMBERS' Social Position Is Almost Irrevocably Fixed In Europe, and Adhered To. In Europe everybody has. a definite social position fixed by birth and edu cation. Individuals pass from one so clal level to another with more facil ity than is thought Yet the vast mass of Britons, Frenchmen, Germans and so forth, pass their lives on the social level where they were born. Position Is fixed. Their compatriots place them at a glance. This caste makes for contentment. There is hardly any temptation to spend for appearance, because such spending will not lift them into a higher order. The social values are not easily fal sified. Thus two merchants of the same class will have retired with in comes earned in business. They live in the same suburb. One has twenty thousand a year and keeps a motor car. The other has only five thous and, and for him a motor car is out of the question. Yet their families associate with little envy on one side or pretentiousness on the other, and to the man with five thousand a year it would seem madness to try to main tain a touring car for the sake of ap pearing as well off as his neighbor with four times the income. In the United States, on the con trary, the absence of fixed social lev els tends to encourage lavish spend ing. People try, by appearances and the possession of mere things to give themselves fictitious social values. This social counterfeiting, though common in every American communi ty, reaches its highest development among the third class of New York's spenders. Elsewhere people seem to feel that the thing is successful if they can put themselves into circula tion as twenty dollar banknotes. But the metropolitan standard of social counterfeiting is to pass yourself off as a safe deposit box full of gilt edge securities Saturday Evening Post. Feathered Architect. The hanging nests in the rotten- woods and other trees in the suburbs or Denver, and all the towns in Colo rado from the eastern slope of the Rocky mountains to Duraneo and Grand Junction, in the eastern part or tne state, are the work of Bullock of Bullock's oriole. Bullock's oriole Is a wonderful ar chitect and a shrewd builder. Its nest Is fastened to the smaller swaying branches or twigs of trees, generally safe from those who would rob or de stroy eggs or young. Strings, wood, fiber, horsehair, leaves, wool and soft materials are used in its construction, the rim of the nest being so artfully attached to the limb of the tree that it can withstand almost anv cala that blows. This oriole is not averse to stealing string and other material from the nest of the house finches. also linnets and other birds. The nest contains from three to six eggs, and the young orioles are truly the rock-a-by babies in the tree-tops of the bird world. Rocky Mountain Herald. ' Old Siege Guns Discarded. The old siege ordnance of the army, which consisted of 6-inch guns and 7-inch howitzers, Is to be discarded for weapons of more modern design. Most important in the new equipment is a 7.6-inch howitzer, which will fire a projectile of 250 pounds. The carriage for this howitzer is so heavy that it will be necessary to re move the howitzer from the carriage, which will be drawn by eight horses. The gun will be placed on a special vehicle and will be transported by an equal number of horses. The 4.7-Inch field gun and the 6-lnch field howitzer are now classed as field artillery m terlal, rather than siege material, be cause it has been found that each gun on its own carriage can be drawn rap Idly enough to keep up with Infantry on the march. Two batteries have been equipped with the new 4.7-inch long recoil field gun, one at Fort Sill, Okla., and tho other at West Point, N. Y. Indians to Build Model Village.

Recently after hearing his first case an Australian justice of the peace delivered himself thus: "There's been a lot of lies told in this case, and I don't know 'who's been telin' 'em. 8o I'm goin' to fine you 2. If yer guilty yer kettin' off very light, an' if yer not guilty it'll teach yer to be more pertickler about the company yen keep." Horse ars LMelropolisJ KEWTDRK'd TOIL IN PARIS recently they held a "fu neral" for the last of the horse omnibuses. Three thousand peo ple, some in motor cars and oth ers on toot ana wearing crepe. formed in the Place St Sulplce and marched in solemn procession behind a 'bus that was making its last jour ney as a public conveyance in the city streets. They bung magnificent wreaths about the old-timer, and twice the legal allowance of thirty-four pas sengers crowded aboard for the last trip. An automobile, draped in black, followed close behind spilling silver paper tears as it went, and that night every music hall revue included a song in its program that was sup posed to be sung by the last conduc tor, the last driver, or one of the last two horses. It will not be long before New York may have an opportunity to perform similar rites in honor of the horse car, for that time-honored vehicle which has stubbornly refused to "die" these many years is destined soon to disap pear from our streets. Will New York deign to pay its respects to that last horse car atter the fashion of the Parisians with their late-lamented horse 'bus? It is possible, but un likely. Ashamed of Them. New York is just a bit ashamed of the longevity of its horse car. That the second largest city in the world still travels in a vehicle that would be hooted at In many a less preten tious western town, has been pointed out so presistently that it has begun to hurt It is doubtful if New York will mourn at any rate In public the passing ot tbe horse car. There are too many strangers in town who have come on from the west to gape at the subway and remain grinning on the sidewalk as some jingling relic of the fifties goes clambering along West street A few there may be, however, who really might feel a pang of regret at the sight of the last horse car jour neying through Manhattan's streets. To them, it would mean the passing of an institution that did, all that could be expected of it, and did it well, too, In the days when New York was not so dreadfully grown up. So long as the city did not demand the Impossi ble, the horse car carried people to business in the morning, and home in the evening; and it took them to the theaters at night in a manner that met all tbe requirements of the day and age. But in these pay-as-you-enter days it doesn't even, pretend to be able to fulfil its share of the contract, tract. "You will have to excuSo me," it seems to say, as it journeys through the thick of the waterfront trafflo these days. "I used to be able to do your transportation work but you've grown altogether too fast for me and I can no longer manage you. So take your subway express or taxi or your Fifth avenue, motor 'bus, and leave me alone. I'll not be here to disgrace you much longer." . The horse car that says this to you Is almost the identical horse car that supplied rapid transit on nearly all the main thoroughfares fifty or sixty years ago. Its style hasn't changed much. If you board one today, you are very likely to find that you are even being driven by an ancient who has been a horse-car driver most of his life. There's old George Lent who, at the vonerable age of sixty-nine, is still commander-in-chief of his car on the Belt Line that runs along the wa terfront from the Battery to Fifty' fourth street In the forty-three years that Lent has been a driver, he has ad only the one route, and It is I said he can tell what street be Is driving past, even with his eyes -HONORED VEHICLE. closed, just by the "feel" of it Mat thew Klernan Is another. Klernan la seventy years old, and apparently as bale as ever, at the end ot thirty-four years ot horse-car driving along -West street But tbe veteran of them all is Mat thew F. Murphy, or "Matt" Murphy, aa he is called, who began to drive a horse car on Third avenue on April 1, 1866, and Is still driving his car today along the East river water front In a little more than a month. Matt will celebrate his forty-seventh year as a driver, and although he Is sixty-nine years old he has no notion of quitting until they quit running horse cars. Then, of course, he will have to stop. Old-Time Rush Hours. Oh, yes, there was a rush hour as far back as the sixties. It lasted from six to nine in the morning, Matt says, and the Third avenue line handled it by pressing nearly all of their rolling stock, numbering 150 cars, into serv ice and sending them downtown at intervals of one minute and forty-five seconds. At other times ot the day there would be fewer cars and longer waits, and at night, after the theaters had closed on the Bowery, there were only twelve cars running. But then New York kept earlier hours In those days. "In those days we drivers usually knew most of the people who lived -along the line and traveled with us every day, and they knew us," said Matt "So In the morning, when the rush was on, I'd often wait at a corner when I saw the man, who always took my car there, hadn't finished his breakfast yet Sometimes a steady passenger would open his dining-room window and call out that he was just finishing breakfast and ask me to hold up a minute until he came out Would I do it? Of course, I would. That was the way we ran horse cars in the old days." Matt says it was the usual thing for horse-car drivers to work sixteen and seventeen hours a day in those days. Each driver had his own car, that Is, a car which he alone used, and also his own team and his regular conduc tor. He was responsible for the gen eral condition and appearance of the car, and usually took personal pride in it The fare for the entire trip on the Third avenue line was six cents. Matt says the conductor would collect five of it in the beginning, and then go around and exact an extra cent from every passenger still on board when the car reached Sixty- fifth street. In the beginning, the con ductor didn't ring up fares; he just pocketed them. There was no heating system not even a stove in the old cars, accord ing to Matt In winter, passengers kept their feet warm by plunging them in a matting of straw that was thrown on the car floor. Also there was no cushion on the long wooden seats inside. This made it rather un comfortable for people traveling any distance, and Matt says that Peter Cooper, who was one of his regular passengers, always brought a cushion with him.
