In the selection of Ir. F, E. Ball as
a member to replace one of those who
resigned the board has shown splen

BTeat interest in the schools, is vitally
interested because he has a number
of children attending school and is
qualified in every way to make a
splendid record. If the other three
members to be named by the board
measure up to Dr. Ball, Fargo will
have one of the best boards that ever
had charge of educational affairs in
the city.

There is one man in the U. S. sen
ate who, if he was asked, does adver
tising pay? could and would probably
give overwhelming testimony in the
affirmative. He is the new senator
from Illinois, J. Ham Lewis.
For years the papers have poked fun
at this ceaseless worker for the public
good—and himself, with the result
that his name became a household
word in Illinois, and, like Mutt and
Jeff, Buster Brown, and others of the
same ilk, he became popular. At
Washington he is running the same
course as in Illinois. A dispatch from
Washington, speaking of his taking
the oath of office, says:
"The triumph of Illinois democracy
—sartorically and rhetorically—James
Hamilton Lewis—took the oath of of
fice Thursday as U. S. senator.
"With faultlessly manicured finger
tips held lightly aloft, his face framed
in his usual rose colored aura of whis
kerettes, the new senator swore to do
his duty,
"His swearing in costume was a
carefully set jewel of perfection. An
extremely lightly cut creation of dark
gray clung _to his graceful frame. A
white silk vest peeped coyly forth,
tojbove rolled cotton lapels. A gray
tinged silk handkerchief leaded care
lessly from a crumpled edge of his up
per coat pocket."

At various times efforts have been
ade to collect in one set of volumes
e entire body of American law, and
rescue from a bewildering mass of
cisions, sound ana unsound, the
ules of jurisprudence which obtain in
tiis country. The result has been a
wge number of weighty volumes by
Ival publishers, whose aspirations are,
erhaps, chiefly commercialward.
(iftwyers have been under the necessi
Y of purchasing these sets, when able,

Ex-Solicitor General Lehman, when
president of the American Bar asso

said that "if an American Wishes to

Health a Factor in Success.
The largest factor contributing to a
man's success is undoubtedly health.
It has been observed that a man is
seldom sick when his bowels are reg
ular—he is never well when they are
constipated. For constipation you will
find nothing quite so good as Cham
berlain's Tablets. They not only move
the bowels but improve the appetite
and strengthen the digestion. They
are sold by all dealers.—Advt.
A. new method of enforcing laws
against vice, and of removing from
police departments the temptation to
graft, has been suggested by A. Leo
Weil, the Pittsburgh lawyer, who has
so vigorously lea tne fight against cor
ruption in his city. Writing in The
Survey, he says:
"The police, a body of men selected
primarily to preserve order, protect
life, prevent crime, apprehend the
criminal, and perform other adminis
trative duties—men perhaps- wholly
unfitted as a body for anything else—
have been expected to solve, by legis
lation, problems which have confound
ed the wisest from the time whereof
the memory of man runneth not to the
"That the police have failed could
not be otherwise.
"That they have aggravated the evil
was to be expected.
"That ultimately legislation must be
placed in competent, qualified hands,
must be apparent.
"That it will require the greatest
minds, the best thought, the highest
statesmanship, and almost a divine
perception, to apprehend and deal with
those complex, involved intricate ques
tions having to do with the passions of
mep. and the strongest, laws of nature,
urging defiance of human laws, seems
to be axiomatic.
"Nevertheless, on the subject of vice
as generally understood in our cities,
the police are expected not only to ad
minister the laws, but to make them
not only to enforce enactments, but to
frame them. And herein lies, in my
judgment, the root of the evil in pres
ent-day conditions which has brought
our police into disrepute.
"Would it not be wise to ask the
legislature to pass a law requiring ev
ery city to appoint a body of men to
draft, and from time to time revise, a
code of laws to regulate, suppress, ex
terminate, and generally to deal with,
this problem of prostitution? To it
must be given authority. It must be
vested with legislative power. It
should have its own employees—call it
a morals police force, if you will—to
carry into effect the rules, regulations
and laws passed by this commission.
"The casting of this burden upon
the police, more than any other cause,
sows the seed of corruption, furnishes
the opportunity for profit, brings into
alliance the law officers and the law
breakers, disgraces the police force,
and keeps off of it many men who
would otherwise be glad to serve their
communities in a position that should
command the respect and considera
tion of the people."

Knowlton would be in his place. "He
was an officer in the church, one of
the honored deacons, and always took
an active part in Bible school work.
He was very willing to sacrifice, to
give of his time and means, never
thinking of himself. With a warm
tender heart he was ever reaching out
to those in trouble with significant,
tangible help. As a man how
sympathetic, brotherly, tolerant, full
of love and fellowship.
'He was deeply interested in the
welfare of the city, never failing to
visit the polls on election day, never
failing in his desire to better the
school conditions. He was interested
in young people, realizing the Im
portance of a firm substantial founda
tion in school.
"This was Dr. Knowlton. We think
of him as having passed on. We call
it death. We think of it as a shut
ting' off, but why not join with me
in interpreting it as a great door,
opened into a wider experience, un
folding a larger and more beautiful
life? This door has again opened and
closed, and there are royal spirits
over yonder to welcome us."-

President Creegan spoke in his elo
quent way of Dr. Knowlton, the edu
cator, the prince of teachers. His trib
utes were made much more fitting by
his reading of several well selected
poems bearing on death and sadness.
He proceeded to name several of the
great teachers of history, Aristotle,
Socrates, Homer the poet, and Mark
Hopkins. He told of the saying that
a college would truly exist wherever
Mark Hopkins sat on one end of a log
and a pupil on the other.
"Dr. Knowlton was the Mark Hop
kins of North Dakota," said Dr. Cree
gan. This prince of teachers has gone
to his rest and reward, but now where
in lay his greatness as a teacher? We
may judge him according to his own
standards. First, the successful teach
er must be a scholar, must have a no
ble, pure character, must be eager for
the truth, must have a love amounting
to a passion for his pupils and must
have that great gift of awakening en
thusiasm in the hearts of his students.
"Today he is buried under the silent
fragrant tributes sent by a multitude
of friends. The Commons club of
which he was a beloved member, the
Agricultural college, the faculty, the
trustees, the students—all have united
in expressing their grief. Why all
this? Those sealed lips have never
commanded an army, he has never
written a great poem, he has never

ADDY," asked Evelyn, "where do the little snowfiakes go when their
winter's work is done? You told us once that their work was to keep
the ground warm in winter, so that the little flowers and other
growing things could come up in the springtime."
"That is correct," said daddy, "and when the springtime comes and with it
the time for the little snowfiakes to disappear they change into drops of water
and sink into the ground. From there they rise again to the clouds, to fall to
the earth as rain, to water the flowers and trees and food plants, without
which no person or animal could live.
"Did I ever tell you about the meeting of the snowfiakes and the raindrops
in the clouds? Well, if 1 didn't I think it would make a good story for you
"The winter was over. Every day the sun was becoming warmer and
warmer, and the little snowfiakes, which still lay on the ground, felt that it
was time for them to go. So they sank quickly into the ground, and from there
the heat of the sun helped them to rise to the clouds.
"In the clouds they met again their friends, the little raindrops, which they
had not seen sinc£ the fall. It was a happy meeting, for the raindrops and the
snowfiakes. which had now become drops of water again, had much to tell
about where they had been and the things they had done. Some had been in
the brooks and rivers of the land others had fallen to make part of the ocean.
"After they had all told their experiences the drops that had been snow
flakes said:
Tfou raindrops are not as tired as we are. We've worked very hard all
winter, and we're as tired as we can be. Now we're going to take a good long
rest up here in the pretty white clouds, and we're going to let you raindrops do
some of the work.
'Way down there on earth are the little seed babies deep in the ground
that are waiting for you to come down to them and feed them, so that they
shall be strong enough to push their way through the ground into the sunshine
and grow into beautiful, strong, tall plants.
'We tried to feed them when we were in the earth, but somehow or other
—perhaps we were too cold—we could not do it That is your work. And
you'd better go down soon, for the crocus is waiting for you and the pussy
willows and the arbutus and the other things which the folks on earth love.'
"So the raindrops gathered themselves together and commenced to fall.
They sang a joyful song as they struck the earth. It told of the flowers of Maj
and June to gladden the earth's surface and the wheat and corn and fruits
that come later to feed the little babies and the girls and boys and the women
and men. Such is the work of the little water babies."
The use of Sage and Sulphur for
restoring faded, gray hair to its na
tural color dates back to grand
mother's time. She kept her hair
beautifully darkened, glossy and
abundant with a brew of Sage Tea
and Sulphur. Whenever her hair fell
out or took on that dull, faded or
streaked appearance this simple mix
ture was applied with wonderful ef
But the brewing at home is mussy
and out-of-date. Nowadays skilled
chemists do this better than ourselves.

own, which is usually too sticky, so
insist upon getting "Wyeth's" which
can be depended upon to restore
natural color and beauty to the hair
and is splendid for dandruff, dry,
feverish, itchy scalp and falling hair.
A weli-known downtown druggist
says his customers insist on Wyeth's
Sage and Sulphur, because, they say,
it darkens so naturally and evenly
that nobody can tell it has been ap
plied—it's so easy to use too. You
simply dampen a sponge or soft brush
and draw it through your hair, tak
ing one strand at a time. Do this at
night and by morning the gray hair

or two, it is restored to its natural
color and looks glossy, soft and

Why? Because a prince of teachers

President Creegan told of his train
ing which, although received late In
life, was most thorough.
"His progress In school was marvel
ous," said Dr. Creegan. "The town in
which he attended the academy called
him back each summer to conduct
teachers' institutes. He was a marked
man. After spending four profitable
years in Oberlin, he was by unanimous
vote given the feJlowship entitling him
to two years of study in Harvard uni
versity, where he received his M, A.
Professor Frost, who had him in
Greek, pronounced his the brightest
mind that he had ever worked with
in his Greek classes In Oberlin. He
next attended the university in Berlin
after which he returned to Ohio state.
Saving two-thirds his salary for the
year, he took his bride back to Leipzig
where he received his doctor of phil
osophy degree. He did not return to
the east at that time, but came to
North Dakota on the banks of the Red
river which he came to love so dearly.
He was indeed a scholar. There were
few such masters of philosophy in this
country. His teachers were the best,
including the celebrated James of
Harvard, and the testimonies of these
men were warm in their appreciation
of the young Knowlton as a scholar.
"As to his character, that was the
big thing about him. The students
have told of his wonderful personality
These flowers are a sign of the respect
for his life." Dr. Creegan said that in
many talks with the deceased he had
never discovered what his creed was,
but he did not care to know. "I know,"
said the speaker, "that his creed was
"Think truly, speak truly, live truly.'
"The biggest word in the language
to him was service. This man was a
prophet. He loved humanity as he
loved his Lord. His little home was
truly a small section of the Kingdom
of God. We are mystified in death, but
we cannot think that he is far away.
We have for a time lost sight of him,
he has left us, he is looking into the
face of his Lord whom he served so
faithfully. He rests—for he has gone
Following the services the friends
departed for the Riverside cemetery in

had been selected on a small knoll

London Daily News: In the opinion
of W. E- Dowding, editor of The Free
Trader, a reduced tariff in the? United
States will have a beneficial effect
upon British trade.
If the tariff proposed in Mr. Under
wood's bill comes into force, he point
ed out to a Daily News representative,
the money of the working classes will
go further. They will have less to pay
into the pockets of the monopolists and
more to spare for their own necessi
ties, and will therefore become better
Boots on the Free List.
One of the most interesting of the
proposals of the American tariff bill is
that which places boQts and shoes on
the free list. It recalls the invasion of
the English market by American shoe
producers some years ago. A good
deal of attention was aroused, byt the
invasion had the excellent effect of
timulating the English boot and shoe
industry, with the result that our ex
ports to markets in which the United
States competes with us have practic
ally doubled.
The value of our total exports of
shoes to all countries in 1907 was
£2,040,000. Last year it had risen to
£3,964,000. American imports into
this country have declined, and remain
stationary at about £350,000.
Good for the English Makers.
What is likely to be the effect upon
the British trade of the abolition of the

few vears ago no trade was done in the
United States by the British boot man

duty. When the tariff was reduced to

British boot manufacturers began to
export shoes, but this trade has re

is much more encouraging. The re
moval of all duty will surely conduce
to a larger business with American
buyers, though it must be remembered
that the American manufacturers are
highly organized."
Theer is growing demand for En
glish styles in America, and there is no
doubt that British-made footgear will
be offered in increasing quantities on
the other side of the Atlantic.
Hopes of Benefit,
The following views have been ex
pressed in English manufacturing cen
Nottingham. Lace, manufacturers
are greatly interested, and it is thought
that the proposal to reduce the duty
on knit underwear and hosiery will
prove of great importance to local in
dustry. On the other hand, it is real
ized that the placing of raw wool on
the free list will probably lead to the
fostering of the industry in America
itself, and that it will lead American
manufacturers to get to work in this
comparatively new field, and so com
pete with the imported goods.
Birmingham.—Some of the Birming
ham manufacturers hope to reap sub
stantial profits from tho reductions,
and if the duty on guns is reduced to
35 per cent, it is thought much of the
trade which the McKinley tariff lost
will be recovered. Before the tariff
Birmingham was shipping 300 sporting
guns to America weekly.
Manchester.—Sir Charles Macara,
president of the Federation of Master
Cotton Spinners' associations, believes
the tariff reductions are bound to stim
ulate the demand for English cotton
goods. In the next few years the re
ductions will undoubtedly assist Amer
ican manufacturers to compete in the
neutral markets but they are likely to
assist the English cotton industry for
a considerable time to come. The
United States only export 5 per cent
of their, manufactures, although they
produce a little over five-eights of the
cotton grown throughout the world. It
is a very serious commentary on their
fiscal system.
Leeds.—Yorkshire trade with
America has been greatly hindered by
the American tariffs, and it is doubt
ful if the reductions will make very
much difference. The general opinion
appears to be that when the facts are
carefully analyzed it will be found that
the proposed reductions will tell once
in favor of the Yorkshiremen and
twice in favor of the American.
A Raliable Hair Tonic.
It is an easy matter to prevent bald
ness, dandruff and other diseases of
the scalp by using Meritol Hair Tonic.
It should be used regularly to keep the
scalp free of dandruff germs, as these
germs are the cause of the majority of
cases of dandruff and later, baldness.

A Substitute for Algebra
Boston Globe: The merry war of
tho educators, each with a different
theory as to the best way to train
children for the work of- life, still
goes on.
At a conference of instructors in
the south, a demand is made by Dr.
Whitefleld, of Mississippi, for the com
plete abandonment of "effete classical
ism" and the ruthless substitution of
vocational training from the kinder
garten up.
The most original suggestion, how
ever, is made by Dr. Burks in Phila
delphia, who proposes that checkers
shall replace higher mathematics in
the curriculum.
"The best of the algebra's value to
the youth," says he, "lies in what It
contributes to social responsiveness
and intellectual capacity. Algebra has
a value to some who intend to be
come engineers or draftsmen, but that
it should be forced on niney-nine in
order to satisfy one is not justifi
Trying to corner the teacher's king
would certainly stimulate more inter
est in some pupils than does the at
tempt to raise plus Y minus Z to
the Nth power.
