It is said that the fashion for men's clothes this summer will be
skin tight trousers and close fitting coats. While some strange
sights have been seen since the women commenced wearing tight.
short skirts and see more waists, if the men comply with this decree
of fashio,n, forms never dreamed of will be displayed. It is all right
with us though, because we won't wear them.
A friend the other day claimed that we were inconsistent in
favoring the initiative and referendum, direct election of United
States Senators and short ballot, as the short ballot on principle was
directly opposed to the others. He, however, thought he was con

It may not be good for man to live alone, but we believe that
it is better than for him to take unto himself a wife when he cannot

"Who Broke Tiie Window."
Under the above head a series of very interesting articles have
been appearing in The Outlook. They deal with a school problem
of importance and are based upon the following questions submitted
to The Outlook by Principal Hall, of Mansfield, Ohio :
Good and Bad are two boys, each fourteen years of age. They
attend the same school. One day Bad said to Good, "I am going to
throw a snowball through the window." Good made no reply.
Bad threw the snowball and broke the window, and Good saw him
do it. The next morning at school the teacher asked the pupils
singly and privately the questions, "Do you know who broke the
window ?" and "Who broke the window ?"
1. What should Good say when the teacher asked him. "Do
you know who broke the window ?"
2. What should Good say when she asked him, "Who broke
the window ?"
3. Should the teacher have asked the boy these questions ?
4. Should the teacher have the same right as the court in
compelling Good to tell ?
5. Modern American schools are rapidly adopting systematic
instructions in ethics. In your opinion, should children throughout
the public schools be taught that it is their duty to tell the truth
about wrong-doing when questioned by a competent authority ?
The editors of The Outlook gave their answers to these ques
tions and submitted the questions to their readers asking them to
express their opinions. Two of these articles in The Outlook have
been the answers of it's readers and a great diversity of opinion
has been expressed.
We consider that these questions deal with a subject of such
vital importance that we present them to our readers, and regret
that time and space prevent our giving a number of the answers to
them by The Outlook readers.
Briefly we will give our answers to these questions in their
1. "Yes."
2. "I refuse to tell."
3. No.
4. This would be absurd as the only way in which the court
can compel a witness to testify to to punish him for refusing to
answer. To punish a boy of fourteen for refusing to tell on a play
mate in our opinion would be absolutely wrong. If when punished
the boy broke down and told he would throughout his life hate
the teacher ; his respect for himself would be weakened and his!f A. Pulllam and wife Thursday
standing with his fellows lowered and probably the next time such
a situation arose he would lie, rather than face the punishment.
5. We think that children should be taught to tell the truth
not only about wrong-doing but about everything. Good, however,
would be telling the truth just as clearly when he said that he knew
who broke the window but would not tell who did it as if he said
Bad did it. If the question intended to be asked is should children
be taught to tell WHO has been guilty of wrong-doing ? We would
say emphatically no.
The questions here presented will bring vividly back to the
minds of many a man some experience of his school days, when he
took the place of either Good or Bad in an occurrence similar to
that in this example. Some will remember with pride the part they i
played when questioned by the teacher, while others will be ashamed
of their actions, but every man, who was really a boy, whether Good
or Bad, will join the side of those who say that the teacher should
not ask, "who broke the widow" and that Good should not tell on
Bad. I

and escapades, when he does things that are wrong. These actions

usually are due to carelessness and thoughtlessness or the love of
adventure and taking risks. He is carried away by his excitement
and is afterwards sorry for what he has done. Should some of his
fellows be asked to tell on him ? We think not and unless boys are
different from what they were when we were boys, he will regret
it if he does.
If there is person whom boys hate it is the tale bearer, the boy
who is going to tell teacher or his father or mother. No more odious
epithet can be applied by them than "tattle tale" ; it contains all
scorn, contempt and derision.
, A boy must be loyal to his playmates, if he retains their good
will and friendship- He must join in their sports and give and take
hard knocks. If he tells on them whenever anything is done that
is wrong, he will soon be left out of their -games and pleasures.
He may be good but he will be lonesome and it is not good for a boy
to be lonesome. If he. has the right stuff in him he will soon realize
what things should and should not be done and will do much to
prevent wrong-doing by his example and his , influence. But if he
is a "tattle tale", well all we knew were weak, sneaking, treacher
ous and liars and if they did not take part in pranks and escapades
it was because they were afraid.
It is alright to ask a boy if he did a certain act, but don't ask-
him to tell on his playmates.

Captain Oldershaw of the Seventy-

captain considered himself so much bet

that he considered they had no rights

servant. Abdullah, a sad faced, unob
truslve creature, whom lie treated as a
slave. In India white persons usually
have many servants, each menial for n
different purpose.
One day Captain Oldershaw missed
some money that he kept, in a drawer
of a desk. He was much disgruntled
at his loss, fur he had nothing but his
pay and was obliged to make that go
as far as possible. The first ruau he
met after the theft was Abdullah, aud.

wrath upon hhu. Having accused his
servant and the servant having denied
the charge, the next step was to take
the law hi his hands by trying, con

self. He tied Abdullah up by the
thumbs with Ills own hand and sat be
side him, drinking brandy, and soda
and smoking till Abdullah finally con
fessed the theft and was taken down.

the money he hadn't It to return. So
the captain magnanimously permitted,
him to work It out. Abdullah meekly
consented to this and was en more
faithful to his muster than befoie.

Captain Oldershaw and saw Abdullah.

"To charm a bird, then crush it by

"Upon my word! You don't menu
"Yes, I do. I wouldn't have the fel

Oldershaw seemed a bit put out by
the information and resolved that when
Abdullah had worked out the money
he had confessed to having stolen he
should be seut away. But Abdullah's
wages were very small, and the sum
was sizable, so a good deal of time
was required in the matter.
One evening a very pretty Indian
girl came to the captain's quarters uud
asked to see him. He received her and
sat chatting witli her for some time.
When she was about to depart she ask
ed if the cuptnln would give her a kiss.
He did so and would have repeated the
act, but the girl did not seem to cure
for nnother kiss and left him. She was
scarcely gone when he began to feel
strange and In n few minutes sunk uu I

It happened that the surgeon of the
