TH y. Aws > In our write up of the county board proceedings last week, in mentioning the resolution passed requiring the sheriff to stop the use of all slot ma chines, we made a mistake which Mr. Benson, who introduced the resolution, has asked us to correct. We stated that an alteration had been made in the resolution before being passed which changed its meaning. This he informs us was not true. Inasmuch as there has been some criticism of the board’s action we here with print the old state law with refer ence to operating gambling devices. Sec. 4531 —Any person who shall knowingly suffer or permit any table, wheel or other construction, or any cards, dice or other device, scheme, contrivance or thing adapted, suitable, devised, designed or which can or shall be used for gambling purposes to be set up, kept, managed or used, or any gambling or betting therewith, thereon or by means thereof in any house, building, shed, booth or on any lot or premises by him owned, occupied or controlled shall be punished by im prisonment in the county jail not more than six months or by fine not exceed ing one hundred dollars. Since that law was passed the legisla ture has passed an amendment giving city councils, village boards and town boards the right to regulate gambling. It became effective last year.

KIEFER BLOCK Telephones I UNDERTAKING DEPARTMENT A. M. Peterson SP. Templeton Store, 1072 Petersen, 1545 Answers Calls Day Licensed Embahuers Templeton, 1627 i or Night W. T. Lawrence, Funeral Director ECHOES FROM THE SCHOOL ROOM, BY PHIL. O. SOPHER. The whispering tongue, the lying lip, They shall be stung by Satan's whip. As long as children have tongues to talk and lips to move they will whisper. Nor is this propensity of the human race common to children alone. Many of us older people are strongly addicted to this most pernicious habit. It is the stock in trade of the gossip and the worst weapon of the scandalmonger. (See Prov. 16:28; 26:20, Rom. 1:29, 2 Cor. 12:20.) The German couplet puts it tersely: Wie die Allen zungen so zmtxchern die Jungen. You cannot entirely sup press whispering in school. It would be folly to try. The best that you can hope to do in the matter is to regulate and control it so as to reduce the evil to a minimum. You can, by example and precept, create a strong sentiment against it in the scnool, and by putting the children on their honor you can do more to eliminate whispering than in any other way. “Whoso keepeth his mouth and his tongue, keepeth his soul from troubles.” Children whisper in school because: 1. They wish to ask a question. 2. They wish to borrow something. 3. They are idle, inquisitive and meddlesome. In a mixed school the smaller chil dren often learn very much from the older ones by asking them in a whisper some question in regard to their lessons, and if whispering ever was justifiable in school it is in this ’ustance. Yet this method of teaching .. not to be encour aged. The second cause can be easily overcome by cultivating in the child a spirit of independence and pride in owning his own books, pencils, rulers, etc. There is no excuse why children should not be supplied with pencils, blotters, rulers, etc. as many agents and business concerns are glad to give them gratis to teachers as an advertis ing medium. The third cause is the one that will give the teacher the most trouble and tax her patience and judgment to the utmost. Yet it can be almost entirely overcome by keeping the child profit ably employed, and by proper and judi cious seating. The teacher has absolute control over the seating of her school. Yet it is wise for the teacher to consult the wishes of he pupils even in this respect. The Bismarkian system of government doesn’t take well even in a little country school in America. But given a school that is properly and judiciously seated and the battle for good order is over half won. Place an idle and refractory pupil in a seat by himself, whe r c he can do the least harm, the same as you would separate a vicious and kicking horse from the others. I knew a teacher (?)once who claimed to be a mar., although he turned out later to be a fragment of adamant chiseled into human form by the Master of that subterraneous region of which Dante dreamt. This vampire was sent by his master to terrify little children and practice deception upon the inno cents of the upper world. He had sixty pupils in his school and he boasted to me one day that not one of them had whispered for a month And when I beheld the stony stare of his counten ance, and saw the steel-gray, cat-like expression of his eye a cold shiver ran through my frame and I wondered what manner of man was he. But I did not wonder at the pale and emaciated faces that confronted me in the seats, and the pleading, pitiful eyes that looked into mine, like some dumb ani mal that is being driven to death by the relentless hand of a merciless driver. The school was as still as death. All was chaos. Mental and moral progress had ceased. The whole school was but one thought, and that was, “Beware of the teacher.” And he was lauded by many as a good teacher, a strict teacher, a teacher who had order and system in his school. The Lord protect us from his kind. ORGAN RECITAL. The second number of the Popular Lyceum Beareau entertainments will be given in the M.

The local branch of the Wisconsin- Humane society held an important meeting Friday evening in the supervis ors’ room in the court house. There was a large attendance and the interest in the society’s work was manifested by the addresses made by a number of our prominent people. The agent, Mrs. W. C. Dickens, read her report for the year which showed that she had been called upon in 368 cases; 244 were in cases where neglected or dependent children needed care and 124 were ones where animals had been abused. Eighteen girls have been placed in homes and a large number of children have been sent to charitable institu tions where they will have proper care. Several children have been taken away from their parents because of immoral surroundings and placed where they will be reared under conditions tending to make their lives a value to society. Emphasis was placed on the fact that the society needs funds to carry on the work. Money is required to buy food and clothing for the ones taken under the society’s care. Following Mrs. Dickens’ report a number of people made addresses com plimentary to the work of the society. R ev. F. H. Brigham promised to add 25 members to the society’s roll within a week. M. B. B isen berry suggested that the society’s a.ms and objects be exploit ed in the schools; that a committee be appointed to confer with the editors of local papers in an endeavor to have them agitate through their columns the spread of humane work. Fred Genrich also was in favor of a campaign of edu cation. Judge Marchetti compli mented the work of Mrs. Dickens and the society, while T. C. Ryan, C. B. Bird, E. C. Zimmerman, Prof. Toby and Mrs. J. A. Jones also lent words of encouragement. B. H. Conlin was re-elected presi dent, Rev. Brigham was selected as second vice-president and the other officers were all re-elected. It is understood that an effort w r ill be made to get new members into the or ganization, solicit funds and promote more interest in the work among citi zens generally. FOREST RESERVE LANDS. The officers of the local land office have been instructed to withdraw the following amounts of land from market and issue patents to the state, subject to conditions imposed by an act of congress passed June 22 last. The act gave the state forestry board the right to select 20,000 acres of government lands for forest reserve purposes and on Nov. 15th the board made the follow ing selections: Ashland county 417.27 Bayfield county 760.09 Burnett county 4,276.40 Douglas county 1,909 79 Forest county 326 18 Iron county 817.14 Marinette couuty 447.10 Oneida county 3,404.27 Polk county 680.40 Price county 1,632 69 Sawyer county 2,216 90 Vilas county 2,031.16 Washburn county 937.40 Langlade county 40.00 Lincoln county 95.60 Total ...19,992 39 These lands lie tributary to state lands already allotted for a forest re serve. It is the intention to re forest the state and protect the headwaters of the Wisconsin and other rivers. LINCOLN SCHOOL NOTES. Since the rain the children have en joyed snow balling, because the snow packs so nicely. Lucile Seaver, who was the only pianist last week, played an exhilerat ing march for us. Last Friday rooms A and B had a spelling match, in which room B was victorious. The score between these rooms is now a tie, and the next match is looked forward to with a great deal interest. Rooms A, B and C are preparing for an entertainment to be given in the gymnasium Wednesday evening, for which 15c admission will be charged. The children are working very hard to make this a success and we hope they will be liberally supported and a large sum be raised for decorations. The Ladies Mission Circle of the Universalist church will be entertained at a quarterly tea this evening by Mes dames Geo. Crocker, N. I'. Kelly, W. W. DeVoe and Wm. Smale, at the home of the latter. Harry, son of Mr. and Mrs. E. Hoertsch, 512 Humboldt Ave., died yes terday evening of convulsions, aged one month.

The class in literary reading has been studying the poems of Burns. This will j he succeeded by Carlyle’s essay on | Burns and by other short essays from j English authors. A tine picture of the Castle of Chilian j and Lake Geneva, selected from the collection on exhibit last week, was presented to the Training school by Miss Bohrer today. It is earnestly hoped that at some j good time in the near future, schools officers will appreciate the necessity of having sufficient blackboard space to accommodate classes, and that within the reach of the children. This would j largely solve the problem of numberless ! classes, as two or three could be easily j handled* at one time.
