his personal associates, his political following and

THE MINIMUM WAGE.
As the question of the "minimum wage" is (lis
cussed, more and more, is it not growing evident
tluit there is more or less buncombe being introduc
ed into a movement which had, at its outset, a very
laudable and commendable aim
In certain lines of industry tliere are "easy jobs"
which do not call for any serious effort or exper
ience. These are chosen by girls or women, who
have homes of their own, and who work mainly
for the purpose of getting more pin money than
their fathers and mothers, Or their husbands, can
afford to dole out to them. In other eases the po
sitions are taken by girls who wish to become self
supporting, but who will not take other positions,
paying better, because they imagine that the but tea
paid places imply some sort of social inferiority.
There, are few occasions in Boston where a healthy,
, self-reliant girl cannot earn enough to support her
self, to p"ut money in the bank, and still have a cer
tain fund left over for dress and for a reasonable
proportion of outside recreation.
So long as the idea prevails thai there is dis
grace in working with one's hands, so long tliere
will be less reason and less sense in demanding a
"minimum wage" which is admittedly decidedly
above what the labor is actually worth. To say
that a young woman of voting age cannot support
herself on a certain wage that she receives, does
not necessarily imply that the wage is too small, or
that it should be made larger, by law. Tlio ques
tion is rather, can the young woman or the young
man, who works for a mere pittance, earn more
in other lines of effort? And, if that be the ease,
the question then appears fair and reasonable; why
does not the underpaid worker take a better pay
ing line of employment? An admission of false
pride, in such matters, does not justify the demand
for a "living wage" in such cases. Tt justifies
rather a condemnation of the false pride. Boston

Dr. Woodson H. Taulbee Writes a
Stinger On The Local Scarlet Fever
Situation-What's the Answer?
it was with real astonishment that
wo read iu Wednesday's Bulletin that
"there aro just JU cases of scarlet
fever and most of these uro about re
covered." It is n truism that if one
tells a lie often enough he will end by
beliovftig it himself. However, it is not
mo easy to convince a public iu the
midst of a dread epidemic that there n
iu eaiiMO for a!. inn.
We are it small community a'ad "the
man iu the street," as well as tho wont
an iu tho house do not need much hcr
from tlio newspapers to bo cognisant
of the red spectre which is stalking
among us. It is true that many of the
cases have been of a mild character
That is, however, according to the
constitution a'.id natural immunity of
tho attacked. As every physician ami
many mothors know, two children iu
tho same family can have tho disease
simultaneously. One escapes unscathed,
whilst tho other has every malignant
complication of tho disease and its
dieadful sequela uud either dies or
goes through life maimed aMd impaired.
Who wishes to tnke the chdnco and
cry "On with tho school, lot disease bo
unconflnedf" As against tho advice
of Dr. McCormack, who has not had a
largo experience with the disease, aud
who is not a practicing physician, 1
would direct nttoutiou to tho advice ot
Dr. Osier, a man of widest experience
a'ad understanding of tho disease who
says in tho face of au epidemic of scar
let fever schools should bo closed and
whoso statistics show that with closure
of schools thnro Is u rapid decline of
tlio disease. Dr. Kmmlt Holt of New
York, who has probably had tho larg
est oxperleuco of any man who ever
lived, says: "Schools aro hotbeds for
spread of scarlet fever," and urgent!)
uthises their closure. That these men
aio right has been proven iu Muysville
where front one school more than 13
cases havo come. Tho closing of the
schools is a very different matter from
cltn?ig picture shows, churches, etc.
Attendance on tho former is coinpul
sory. If a parent tnkes matters iu his
own hands and withdraws his child, a
handicap is indicted on tho child edit
