Decoration Day.
1 ;.is year when Decoration Day
dawn* ail of the boys who gave their
services and their lives "over-tbere”
will have found their last resting place
either here in America or "aome
's*r* in France.” It wu a matter of
P*-r*oi,ti opinion where each one
■'< 'ii rest. sum* mother* wanting
that was mortal of their boy back
< ?n*.r nat-v* sod. But wherever
they rest each grave will undoubtedly
: - orated on this Decoration bay
Ea' n year a* we have watched the
D*corauoTi bay parade forming and
listened to th* services it has seemed
th it only to th* old soldiers who
■g*t ir, th* < jvil War did th* cere
mony really mean anything. To them
it was a very solemn thing but to the
yoiir.gef men and especially to the
cl. idr*n who took part in decorating
the graves it meant nothing more
than a " Decoration bay Parade.” .No
one had ever explained to them the
aching hearts behind all those graves
they were decorating. No one had
ever explained to them the horrors of
war.
Hut now the veterans of the world
w.it are young men still. They will
not forget and let us hop* they will
not allow others to forget, the horrors
through which they have passed to
save the principle of freedom and
democracy. Let us hope that the little
children will imbibe some of their
spirit and that they wj|| grow up, not
with the old fashioned idea that wa
is i glorious thing and that to be a
soldier is to t>e a glorified personage.
Let us hope that they will grow up
witli a horror of war and of what it
brings and that they will never sub
mit to ii 1 herein heajhe lioi>e lor the
futuie I herein lies the promise that
fiiture Decoration Days will not find
flesh graves added tothe already too
long list to be decorated.
Let us consider these things on the
•••■tiling Decoration Days. Let ns
■ ponder them iii our hearts'’ and re
solve that if education t an avoid this
bloody god of war, we will not stint
the education.

1 FHiijert Both, dean of ti * school of
j forestry at tn* I niverstty of .Michi
gan the grand old man of middle
’ western forestry- told how. a* often
' i* p<>** b.e, is* goes to Grayl ,2.
: ids own state, to visit a white pm
; forest only acres in ail, but
I covered with trees of large giHE and
j towering stature. He loved the white
I pine when it stood almost r-.’wy»i>*r*
iin the upper lake region ami to b—
: even a few of them still alive be goes
j as to an altar.
The of the white pine bas
:by great odds been the most serious
| misfortune that Wisconsin ha- suffer
ed lb the way of d-*:ruction of scenic
. beauty. For the white pine is tn* king
of our native tree* Many attractive
trees we have, the Norway pine and
the hemlock, the elm, the maple, the
walnut, the ash, the base, the hickory
and others, but in impr*.--iv* beauty
in dignity and dominating power, the
white pine transcends every other
kind of tree indigenous to Wisconsin’*
soli.
We need not lose the while pine
forever. We must not lose it. (t can be
grown along many highways, in farm
woodlots, in many other place*. We
can and should grow w hite pine for
ests. some of them quite large
We must perpetuate the white pine.
It yields the choicest of soft wood
lumber and ti ls is needed, and will
be needed more each year, to buikl
homes and for many other necessary
purposes. The beauty oi the white
pine tree la a rare asset in itself. We
n**d it, too.
M lute pin* forests, forests of our
own w hite pine, exist in Eurojie, the
result of adoption. We cannot let this
kingly tree become a*trang*r to Wis
consin.
A Little Talk on Thrift.
'By S. W Straus, President Ameri
can society for Thrift.
Thrill and industry invariably go
hand in hand. An old proverb ex
j pr**»e* the thought ■ ery eonci**N as
!follows' "Indusiry i* fortune’s right
■ hand, and frugality her left.”
If you would understand the signi
, ticance of this truth begin a plan of
j systematic saving and note th* added
u-nttiusittsro with which you apply
■ yourself to your work.
It may b* difficult to save the first
dollar or the first hundred dollars,
; bill later it becomes a positive plea
i sure, and one’s joy in su< h ac
i eomplishe* increases a* suec.-ss con-
Hiriues. Tasks that were once per
, formed as perfunctory duties become
| exalted to the plane of real inspira
tion. Hence the thrifty man invaria
} bly becomes an industrious one and
hi* accomplishment* multiply.
What is true of the individual also
may b* said ot the nation. People
who have been proverbially thrifty
such as the French,the Belgian*, the
Danes am! the Dutch also have been
i uniformly industrious.
The man who accompli*he* the
j rudiments of thrift practice by be
i ginning to save money, simultaneous
■ ly begin* the practice of thrift of time.
He eliminate* the little period* of
: idleness that are so destructive to
j efficiency and progress. He is not
pifraid of hard, steady work. He
; understand* t lie value of sustained
effort and steady application. The
thought of idleness is a* abhorant to
; him as the suggestion of si uamlering
! money.
I'liese are facts that make of thrift
j practice a most important function in
| our industrial hl*. The wage earner
| who practices thrift is a better ern
i I’loye. lie is steadier tn his work,
j more settled in his habits, more fair
i minded in his public attitude, am)
with alia far more valuable man than
would lie the case w ere he not of a
thrifty bent.
Fliese 1 acts are of special interest at
| this time when tl l entire industrial
' world seems n, be on the threshold of
pnore active conditions. Haul work
! ami imlust i v are inequalities so much
i needed throughout the world today,
i M hell we encourage thrift we are en
couraging many kindred practices
limn which th* individual, the nation
• and ail mankind will receive untold
I benefits.

Housework Scars Reveal Brides.
"Slmw me their hamls,” said the js
slstant at th* tiutch*! simp, “rmd I’ll

The last annual teachers* meeting will
be he'd at the Hurley Court house
May 13. Annual reports will be ex
plained and given out to the teachers.
All instructors are asked to bring in
the name* of all Mth grade graduates,
and the articles that are to be exhib
ited at the Gogebic county fair in Au
gust. Memorial Day pamphlets and
text booklets will be handed out to
the teachers.
Hiring of Teachers
Hiring of teachers has been and will
be an important matter for considera
•ion in every district. More rural
schools than usual are acting on this
matter early. It pays to RETAIN A
GOOD TEACHER, or to get after a
good one while there is a chance to
< hoo-e from several teachers. We
-hall be glad io give what help we
< an in advising about the choices.
The Wage Question
Th* w ; t ’- ~:j. .’-"al.-o a very im-
portar.t on* th s year. A few school
b >ards announce that they will not pay
over a certain amount, just as some
did last year. I’iually this led to get
ting rather |>oor teaching. On the
other hand, a number of school boards
have already decided to pay just as
much if not more than last year.
They are thinking of the value to the
children of the right kind of teaching
and believe that we cannot afford to
give anything but the best schooling
-obtainable to the children. They rea
•' lize that a lowering of wages means
’hat ’here will be a lowering in the
quality and amount, of training the
children. But goiMl wages should be
paid only to carefully selected teach
ers who will give their best service to
the district employing them, and s uch
work should be accompanied by the
hearty cooperation of all the people of
the district to build up and maintain
the best conditions for the teacher
and children.
Clerks Take Notice
Every year, we request that school
cleiks hold to the law which requires
that the last month’s salary be with
held until the teachers’ reports are
O. K. and a certificate to that elfect
been received from th* office of
the county superintendent. Clerks
will you not cooperate with us in this
matter so that this work will be done
by your teachers when it should be
don*? All this data js needed for our
various reports, and we will greatly
appreciate your cooperation in this
matter.
A pleasant mothcis’ meeting was
held at the Manitowish and Central
school, on the occasion of the school
contest for the pupils, in spelling,
arithmetic and penmanship. A nice
lunch was served to the mothers who
were present.
The Greatest Movement In Twenty
Years.
The proposal for which the Cutover
Land lleclamation association was or
ganized ha* been declared the greatest
movement for \ViscoiiKindevelopment
in the last twenty years. The idea of
government aid direct to settlers to
maintain their families while clearing
their land making it unnecessary to
leave their homes to earn money is a
new thought on the whole subject. In
the tfire* state* of Wisconsin, .Mich
igan ami Minnesota there are probably
m.IMHI to 50,1H*l Buch settlers.

Broride Your Bigs With Pasture.
Why pasture balance* ration and
lowers cost -4 feeding. Pasture is
valuable for all swine, but especially
.’■<r p.g* 'erag >ri p *t- teciOpr
are rich in the bony building inuier
:als i -eded by yout.ggiowiug ar-iceals.
S icb crops are rich in protein is ot the
right kind to go along with the pro
tei&B of the common grab 2 w inch are
not well balanced for gro* mg annuals.
Pasture crops are also rich in the
mineral elements which are needed
for tbe development of the bones of
the young animals.
Pig* on pasture will make much
greater gains on a given amount of
grain than pigs not provided with
pasture. Only about oue-tialf of tbe
expensive feeds such as skim milk,
tnakage, linsr-d meal, or wheat mid
dlings are ceded when pigs are on
pasture.
Pigs on pasture will thrive much
>etier and will keep in a much health
ier condition than pigs confined in a
•mall yard. The exercise obtained
while on pasture will tend to keep
them in a thrifty condition.
Rape for pig pasture: For early
pasture Dwarf Essex Rape broad
canted at the rate of five pounds of
seed per acre makes an excellent past
ure. Rap* is ready when a foot high
and will last until hard freezing in
the fail. Rape pasture will accomodate
20 to 23 pigs an acre.
Oats, peas and Rape, make a won
derful pasture for pigs seeded at the
rate of one bushel of oats, one bushel
of field peas, and five pounds of rape
per acre. Pasture is ready when peas
are well podded. If not pastured too
heavily this will furnish grazing till a
hard freeze in the fall. This mixture
w ill carry twenty to twenty-three pigs
au acre.
