PUBLISHED WEEKLY. BY Washburn Printing Co* NELS M. OSCAR, Editor. Washburn,, Wis. May 24 1906. $2 A YEAR. Advertising Rates made known on application. Entered at tfce post-office at Washburn Wisconsin, as second-class mail matter. The Moral awakening of the great corporations,'is undoubt edly one of the encouraging signs of the times, however far fetched some of the excuses are. Last week the Omaha Railway paid the taxes on the Elevator. The officers of the company re served the right to say that it was voluntary on their part and that, they had ample reason to believe that it could be success fully contested. The statement was also made if reports are true, that they were aware that the school fund was in need of money. So it is. to be sure, but the payment at this time does not help the school fund any more than if the money had been, thrown in the lake. The time to help the schools by the payment of this tax passed when the amount was turned over to the county, and that also when the amount of the tax was about $400.00 less than now. But then what’s the use. The county needed it also and it was a mighty big help to get it. The action of the Commercial Club in taking up the agitation of repairing the road between this city and the town of Cornu copia and Port Wing, will un doubtedly result in great good. There is a vast territory north of us, which is being rapidly set tled, up. and the people should have an outlet for their products. It will also result in bringing us into closer touch with these towns on the south shore of the lake. A com mittee consisting of George F. Morgan, C. O. Sowder, O. P. Swanby and F. J. Meehan have the matter in charge and will undertake to work with those interested from the outside in getting petitions circulated to be presented to the county board. The plan is either to ask the Coard for the establishment of a system of county roads, or for aid to build roads that are most peeded-v There are in every community two classess of men, one of which and this the least numerous goes ahead and does things. The other lays back andsays either it that should not have been done at all or should have been done the other way. These men never do things because they are always the critics and the fault finders, Notice to Wisconsin Farmers, i The twenty-second annual report of the Wisconsin Agricultural Ex periment Station is now out. It will be sent free to any resident of the state upon request.

Science's Latest Insult to Man. Luther Burbank’s seheme, for ap plying his methods of plant breed ing to the human family, bids fair to be taken seriously. Assistant Sec retary Hays, of the department of agriculture, has appointed a com mittee from the American Breeders’ association, to investigate the sub ject and consider the possibility of applying the methods used in the scientific breeding of plants and animals, to tha perfecting of the human type. Modern science has intimidated us with the übiquitous microbe, awed us with the sense of our insignifi cance and made us forswear Path r Adam anu own the ape as our pro genitor, but when it attempts to place the propogation of the human species on a level with that of the lower animals, it is adding an insult to an injury that should make even ape-descended, microbe-ridden man rebel. That the human family needs im provement, is a deplorable fact; that Americans need better heredity and better environment, no one will deny. But, while Mr. Hays and the American Breeders’ essociation are discussing their Utopian scheme, thousands of children are being ruined in factories and sweat shops for the lack of healthful, decent sur roundings, and our educational and social systems are grinding out only nerve-racked, keen-brained fighters for the industrial and commercial world, who will be the mothers of the future. When our government has tiipe and opportunitv to consider the vital question of its future citizenship, we will have an investigation, and ramedial legis.ation for those con ditions which threaten the home and menace the strenth of its unborn children. But such work will not comeunder the department of agriculture, neither wiil it be based upon an impracticable theory that insults the reason and decency of civilized man. —Duluth News Tribune.
