Our fondest hope is that some day we will get out an issue of
the paper and never think or hear of a single thing that we failed
to have in it.
Is it not strange how we will quote mean things people have

Beyond The Crossroads."
The following extract is taken from an article in the
Atlantic Monthly entitled "Beyond The Crossroads."
"The crisis is essential to the good health of religion. Religion
needs the exercise which is taken by walking regularly and briskly
in the direction of the crossroads. In every generation the here
tics, the nonconformists, the dissenters, the unbelievers, save the
church. They save it by calling attention to the fact that religion
is not properly responding to the present situa.ion ; it is not answer
ing the new questions, or keeping pace with the new movements,
or employing the new methods or taking account of the new ideas.
Religion would settle down satisfied in the grasslands. Then comes
criticism and forces it out ; as the race has been forced by drought,
or invasion, or by the pressure of increasing problems, from the
grasslands to the great rivers, from the rivers to the inland sea,
and from the sea to the wide oceans, Atlantic and Pacific."
This idea will probably be quickly and strongly denied by the
orthodox and the author condemned as a heretic and atheist. The
author is George Hodges, Dean of the Episcopal Theological School
at Cambridge, Massachusetts, a recognized authority on religious
and theological works.
The above quotation is simply giving the principle that anything
or any person to grow, thrive and meet the needs of the times must
encounter opposition, as that is the only way that the best in it or
him can be brought out ; that nothing is worth while which can not
withstand and grow in the face of opposition and criticism.
The doubters and dissenters call our attention to things we
had never thoueht of before. He causes us to study and examine
questions and we find beauties and promises that we had not even-
dreamed existed. A religion which can not grow in tne iace 01
criticism, which can not bear investigation, is not fit to live. Also
a true religion must have as its main business social betterment,
the improvement of the world.
In regard to the duty of the church today Mr. Hodges says :,
"Thus we stand at the eschatological crossroads. Science,
society, humanity, all the forces of modern progress, are turning in
one direction, along the way whose signboard declares that this
present world is likely to last a long time, and that man's mission
is to improve it. If the church takes the other turn, it will lose
many of its strongest workers till it comes back and joins them at
their work."
Needed Improvements.
The toilet facilities at the Webster school building are a dis
grace to the town. The furnaces in the building are worn out and
a new heating plant must be installed before next winter.
The question of what was to be done in connection with these
matters was up before the board of education at a recent meeting.
We understand that the members of the board were of the opinion
that the advisable thing to do was to erect a wing at the south east
corner of the building. In the basement of this would be an up-to-date
steam heating plant ; on the first floor would be sanitary toilet
rooms and on the second floor would be rooms for regular school
work. The cost of this improvement was roughly estimated at
To do this work it would be necessary to issue bonds. We are
informed by members of the board that it is their intention if the
proposed improvement meets with public approval to call an elec
tion in which the people can pass upon the matter.
The need of toilet facilities at the Webster building, no one who
knows anything about conditions can doubt. The facilities are the
same as they were thirty or forty years ago. The toilets are a
considerable distance from the main building. The walks leading
to them are poor. They are not heated and it is impossible to keep
them clean. The condition is unsanitary and unhealthy. We are
informed that there is not another town in the state, the size of
Hillsboro, which has such bad toilets. We doubt if there is a rural
school in the county, where they are as bad.
We do not know how many times it has been necessary to put
new furnaces in the Webster building since they were first installed.
It has been several times' and the building has never been satisfac
torily heated. If the weather was very cold or the wind blowing
strong it has never been possible to heat the rooms so they were
comfortable and frequently it was necessary to dismiss the pupils
in certain rooms.
When a new heating plant is installed there is only one sensi
ble thing to do and that is to put in one that will heat the building
and that will not have to be replaced every few years. In the long
run it will be economy. s
For the older people to argue that these improvements are not
necessary, because they got along very well without them is foolish.
Their fathers also received their education in log school houses,
lived in log huts ; had no pikes ; read by candle light ; heated their
homes with fire places ; traveled in road wagons, etc., etc.
We do not know what would be a reasonable cost for.a heating
plant and sanitary toilets at the Webster building, but whatever it
is the people of the town should gladly meet it as the present toilets
are a disgrace to the community and good business policy always
dictates putting in a plant that meets your needs, instead of one
that is inadequate.
These matters should be given careful examination and thought
by the people of Hillsboro.
Having had a month's experience, we are thinking of running
a column of "Advice to Gardeners."
